The Winter 2017 TV anime Hand Shakers will hold a special event starring its cast members on July 9, 2017. It will also collaborate with Animate and open a themed cafe on January 20.
Hand Shakers is an original anime project produced by GoHands in collaboration with Frontier Works and KADOKAWA. It shows the battle between the powerful Hand Shakers who aim to overcome God and make their wish come true.
The special event will be held at Wako Citizens’ Cultural Center in Saitama Prefecture. The main character Tazuna Takatsuki’s voice actor Souma Saitou, and his partner Koyori Akutagawa’s voice actor Sumire Morohoshi, will appear along with Ai Kaguma, whose role has yet to be revealed.
Pre-sale application tickets for the event will be enclosed in the first volume of the Blu-ray BOX released on March 24, 2017.
The Hand Shakers × Animate Cafe will be hosted in the ‘kitchen car’ in front of the Animate Ikebukuro flagship store. It will remain open from January 20 to February 12. Visitors won’t need any prior reservation.
The collaboration menu will include six drinks that are based on the character’s appearances: Bonds of Tazuna and Koyori, and Mamore Konote De Berry Drink, which is a mixed berry flavor drink with whipped cream berry sauce and mint leaves to be associated with a parfait that is a favorite of Koyori.
Indicative of themed cafe, every order comes with one of eleven specially-illustrated coasters at random as a bonus. There will also be a stand selling limited goods at the cafe like trading stand key holders and trading can badges. You can check them out below.
