The big-hitting Anderson made 116 and put on 140 with Kane Williamson, who made 62 having retired hurt at one stage on Tuesday.
Further half-centuries from Ross Taylor, BJ Watling and Ish Sodhi saw New Zealand to 419 for eight, with the latter pair still together at the close.
Taylor took three runs from the first ball of the day as six came from the remainder of Rubel Hossain's unfinished over.
A boundary off Shakib took the former captain to 53 but he perished two balls later after edging to Nasir Hossain.
Anderson played himself in responsibly, with just three runs from his first 30 balls, but soon drove Sohag Gazi for two boundaries and swept Shakib for another.
A six off Shakib took him into the 40s and he squirted the same bowler to fine leg to reach a two-paced, 71-ball half-century.
Williamson followed him to the landmark in a more pedestrian 105 deliveries by on-driving Al-Amin Hossain for his fifth four as lunch was taken at 231 for four.
Anderson hoisted Abdur Razzak beyond the mid-wicket fence and brought up the century stand with a four and a single off the first two balls of a new spell from Rubel.
And his personal total reached three figures when he turned his 139th ball, from Gazi, to the mid-wicket rope.
Williamson was dropped by Mushfiqur Rahim but his dogged knock finally ended, after 151 balls and six fours, when he skied Razzak to Tamim Iqbal at deep mid-wicket.
Al-Amin took the big wicket, his first in Tests, in his second over with the new ball when Anderson drove uppishly to Gazi at extra cover. He hit 13 fours and two sixes in 173 balls.
BJ Watling hooked Al-Amin for four to bring up the 300 and put on 31 with Bracewell before the latter edged Shakib to keeper Mushfiqur.
Nasir removed Neil Wagner for eight after tea but Watling found a good ally in Sodhi.
The young spinner had shown signs of his batting ability with a brisk 22 not out in the second innings at Chittagong and dominated an unbroken stand of 84 here.
He hit five fours in three overs from Razzak and Shakib to reach 22 from 18 balls and two more off Rubel in the first over after drinks.
He was reprieved when Gazi dropped a return catch and the 50 stand came up when Watling guided the same bowler for two.
Watling was first to 50, from 124 balls after sweeping Razzak for one.
Sodhi's contrasting effort came up in just 67 deliveries, with seven fours, and he was just four runs behind his partner on 55 at stumps - leaving him with 78 Test runs to date for just one dismissal.
