My favourite slut.
This picture is perfect, Chris is there but Yuuri ended up being the most slutty. I wanna know what kind of scenarios JJ has made in his mind about Yuuri.
Good taste but Phichit is pure. Pure!
my husbando who is also best boy is not pictured so i guess i'll go with bike-kun who is 2nd best
Tell us, Judge-san, does he lack a gag reflex?
Fairy is the only one for me, however all of those boys share 2nd place for best boy.
He was in the banquet, his mind probably went wild after hearing the news of Victor moving to Japan.
This is not even a question.
I have no idea what are you talking about.
Pig. An obvious choice. Had Viktor been present, I would have a problem choosing, but as it is, it's rather easy.
This is not even a question.
You're right, Otabek is the only patrician choice.
Are we ever getting out of keychain hell in favor of better merch?
Phichit 4 ever
Well, not today.
I have a more inclusive idea
Tell me who your favorite YoI boy is and I'll tell you why he's shit
This is Piggy's season 2 routine https://youtu.be/iodhXLVmEMI
I like Pig's crazy look
JJ still seemed to be in denial of why Victor ran off.
Never it seems.
The straight one.
Pig or death.
That's not how a straight man's fantasies look, user.
This guy's got jokes
Otabek, who else?
I wonder if Pig has fans in-universe who see him as a sex symbol after his sudden Eros transformation
I'd kill to see the in-universe fan reactions on SNS etc to everything that happens in the series, it must seem crazy from an outside perspective. Even side from his eros performance, they sure as fuck must assume he's a semen demon of the highest order to lure Victor 'living legend' Nikiforov halfway across the world to coach him.
His fans are probably impressed. Truthfully they're probably really thankful to Victor for getting Yuuri back on his feet after he failed so badly, they must have feared he would retire.
Now Victor's fans on the other hand, they're likely not too happy with piggy.
Yuuri's fans were purityfags
they're mad Victor ruined him
Kek, they actually would be. Asian fans lose their shit over their idols dating, didn't Yuzu have to apologize for dating rumours?
Does Yuuri even have fans? He seems to just have generic "I'm supporting you because you're Japanese and I'm from Japan" fans, sans Minami, especially compared to Yurio, Victor, JJ and...really the rest of them.
It could be an unreliable narrator thing though
Viktor's fans must be Piggy's biggest hatedom. I bet they have little voodoo dolls of him and break their legs regularly.
It's a good thing Yuuri's cut off from it all, he was in Detroit for years and now he'll be in Russia. The only time he'd really have to deal with them would be Nationals.
I feel sorry for all the women who finally realized he's gay.
Definitely unreliable narrator thing, he's the best fucking skater in Japan. Look at Minami, there have to be more fans like that. Even Fairy admired his step sequences. Hell, Viktor himself is downright charmed with Yuuri's skating. It's not just love, he also enjoys him as a skater. Piggy is massively underestimating himself.
It's the latter, he must have a good sized fanbase. You can see some of it in that competition with Minami, the crowd went nuts over Yuuri.
As Japan's top skater it's unlikely he doesn't have fans. Maybe they're really lowkey because they know he doesn't deal well with too much attention, unlike JJ.
Also all this talk reminds me of that fic that was pretty much formatted like a bunch of SNS posts by fans, it was fun to read through.
He does really lack charisma though. I wouldn't be surprised if the vast majority of his fans are there for national loyalty.
I wonder how many new fans he gained after the current season, he's on everyone's radar now.
It wasn't Victor who fully ruined him. Yuri was always a big ass slut, but he never showed that side to anyone because he was so shy and lonely. But when Victor came along, Yuri was able to open up more.
His fans of course wouldn't know that, only the other skaters knew he was a pole dancing hitler.
The fans don't know that, they probably just saw this cute, shy little angel who's never pole danced a day in his life.
I'm still wondering where the hitler learned poledancing from.
As the other user mentioned, maybe his fans were purityfags. He does have that fragile type of charm going for him if you're into it.
Detroit sex parties.
Somewhere in Detroit, I guess, also probably where he picked up breakdancing. I bet it was Phichit's idea, no way he came up with this on his own.
Who are these characters
Oh god, I'm going to love this theme.
Oh my, this is a pleasant surprise. Are the covers all going to be Yuuri pair dancing with another skater?
I'm anticipating Chris's cover.
I sure hope so, this theme is lovely. Does this mean that we're getting a banquet cover with drunk Piggy and Viktor dancing?
Yuuri's right eye looks pretty funky, but other than that they look kawaii af.
Yuuri pair dancing with other skaters
BD 3: Phichit
BD 4: Chris
BD 5: ???
BD 6: Victor (Stammi Vicino pair skate?)
It would be weird to have Chris on the cover, he isn't a very high profile character.
Makes me wonder who will be on the next one, Chris or Phichit? Doubt they'd do Minami.
Chris pole danced with Yuuri and is close to Victor, he'd get a cover. I'm afraid JJ would get one.
If the theme is GPF finalists, he actually might.
I want Minami, but I think it'll be Phichit. He's much more important to him than Chris.
I bet there will be a JJ cover no matter how much we don't want it
Yeah, he always finds a way to get where he isn't wanted.
At least if he's stuck dancing with Yuuri he won't look happy.
I never minded this thing, now I can't unsee sad Viktor.
The faces still look off. Sasuga Hiramatz.
Kek, you're right.
Oh my god.
That half skirt on Yuri is truly a retarded design.
My god, that's uncanny.
Let vol. 5 be a BikeFairy pair dance.
Yuri + GPF finalists?
Yuri and Otabek dancing
On one hand, Otabek would be great. On the other hand, JJ.
What's wrong with it? It's less weird than Yuuri and JJ.
If they save the last volume for the Yuuri and Victor pair skate there won't be enough covers.
I actually kinda wanna see JJ and Yuuri dancing
Why do they wear the fruity costumes?
Nothing's wrong with it, I just think Otabek would be hilariously uncomfortable
He'd probably take it seriously.
Maybe they will spice it up
3 - Yuuri Phichit
4 - Victor Chris
5 - Otabek Fairy
6 - JJ Fairy
That would be a spoiler. I don't expect pair skate on the last vol cover.
Oh my god yes please.
I didn't realize I needed this.
Maybe those FatFairyfats were onto something.
Today is a good day for FatFairy shippers.
I like how they aren't holding hands like Baldfat were. This is super cute.
It looks like Yurio is fighting him on that.
Typical sibling rivalry.
That's actually pretty fucking kawaii.
JJ is Kubo's favorite. He will get a cover.
Well, if this is any indication I look forward to seeing his expression.
I want him to look afraid
now I want to see it
still made it 3rd
I don't get it
DON'T TOUCH ME PIG!! I DON'T WANT TO TURN HOMO
He is already homo.
Didn't expect that...
I kinda like it. Piggy is always at ease when faced with fairy.
like a brother
Why is fairy munching on a safety pin?
Ahahahah, this is great.
I somehow need this in S2. Please deliver MAPPA
Who has bigger yandere potential, Viktor or Yuuri?
Originally I thought it was Pig with his "look at me only" shtick, but after he tried to let Viktor go for his own (perceived) good, I'm not that sure. And Viktor has been awfully fixated on the Pig to the point of willing to throw away his entire old life.
Victor doesn't seem jealous enough to really be yandere, he's happy to show Piggy off to the world and never bats an eyelash at other skaters flirting with him. He'd probably be up for a threesome with Chris.
Pig has a greater chance of going yandere, but Victor would probably be more scary if you got him to break.
Viktor is pure maiden
There was a fanfic from the point of view from his small fanclub that I thought was enjoyable. It's more typical of a Western fandom but the reactions seen pretty accurate. http://archiveofourown.org/works/8695081/chapters/19936426
I am confused about something
Celestino coached Yuuri and Phichit in Detroit, but didn't they say in the show that Phichit recently went back to his home rink in Bangkok? But then Celestino was shown at Phichit's current rink, wasn't he?
Is Ciao Ciao living in Bangkok, then?
This anime need some girl
If it's not this one please post link
He'd probably be up for a threesome with Chris.
Yuuri would hate the idea of threesomes because "I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN SATISFY MUH VICTOR" "I'm the only one who can make and see Victor come undone"
Piggy has more yandere potential
Just read a bit of it, it hurts that we will never see Victor updating his instagram with pictures of him and Yuuri and tagging it with their couple name.
Incidentally, YOI's marketing team is wasting a good opportunity by not doing so themselves. They have an instagram already set up, art doesn't take that much time, it's perfectly in character and it'd be a good way to keep the fandom invested while we wait for S2.
I've been thinking this too. In-character SNS accounts would be great marketing.
Their kiss reactions look like fucking Sup Forums
I hope that after this season Yuuri acquired some rabid fangirls and that we get to see them in S2 too.
How would they be called?
The David Camerons
Yeah, he wouldn't be down with a threesome at all. Jealousy would eat him. I think he'd let Chris watch, though.
While throwing death glares
He'd still secretly enjoy it, though. "Yes, that's right, look how I can make him fall apart, nobody else can do that." I bet Pig is a huge pervert, Siscon was right.
Fairy's face looks derpy but this cover is fun to look at. I'll like it more that the first volume.
If it's Otabek and Stamina Yuuri dancing, shit will be manly as fuck and we'll all get pregnant.
He definitely is. It's still funny to think about how he reacts when Victor points out he's a virgin. That's one of my favorite moments.
Suddenly I kind of want this, would be dope as fuck.
The pig and the goat
Yeah, that was the one. Glad others liked it too.
This is not even a serious question
Which one of the from the skate tracks did u love the most /yoi/?
mine was intoxicated
Stammi Vicino, Yuri on Ice, Anastasis and Samarkand Overture, I can't pick between these.
Most of them are godly though.
A boring answer, but Yuri on Ice. I love most of them, but Yuri on Ice is the one track I listen to extremely often. It even helps me concentrate while studying, I love it so much.
All of them except for JJ's tracks. Even Shall We Skate is better than those.
So. I don't know if this has been poited before, maybe I'm just slow. But it's nice how they changed the name of the opening song from History Maker in the first 11 chapters to History Makers in the 12
Oh, I didn't notice that. But it makes sense given the plot and that it's actually "WE were born to make history."
Someone already said that in one of the threads user. Nevertheless, congrats.
I always cry like a little girl when this song plays
I need this.
Same here. And maybe it's unlikely, but I'm kinda hoping Medo-chan will skate to it in an exhibition or something.
5 - Otabek Fairy
I want this
6 - JJ Fairy
Kill it with fire. I think the final volume will have a group drawing or something. Isn't that what Japan always does? I want a selfie taken by Phichit after the medal ceremony of the GPF with everyone.
not listening to JJ's themes in public and trying to keep a straight face
will never rule the world/10
Oh my god make this happen, Kubo.
Nah, I think it will be
3 - Chris Phitchit
4 - JJ Otabek
5 - Everyone together
6 - Pairskate (or fairy alone because muh gold)
Why are you watching anime intended for fat girls?
I love this cover. FatFairy is underrated.
not being a girl
not knowing we're all little girls here
Because I don't wanna watch a show intended for fat boys that don't shower.
how popular is bikefairy in nipland
Popular enough for 6mins screen time
It's popular enough, I think it's already more popular than Jyuri. It's just too new to get these doujins ready yet.
5 - Everyone together
This is the kind of cover that suits the last volume more.
depends on what you compare it to.
Fucking kek. I hope there's one with him dancing with Mickey just to see his reaction.
anime about men into men
no girld allowed
I don't see any reason a girl would like it
Mickey is too irrelevant to get a cover. Maybe JJ will get the "disgusted" or "terrified" cover with Piglet.
this is fucking gold. I hope the other BD covers are as good.
I know he most likely won't get a cover but it would still be funny. The 5th one is probably JJ. Or Yakov. Please be Yakov.
Like this user said is a beautiful song and I can't stop listening to it ever since it came out, be it for studying or
helping me fall asleep
I also love Eros, Agape, Boogie, Samarkand and the Duet but the other tracks are pretty good as well.
This is for Episode 3 and 4, right? BikeFairy pair dancing better happen.
I'd kek at how many of them were assuming BaldFat were fucking
solo Stay Close to Me, gives me chills overtime.
I also really like the Episode 10 credits song but fucked if we ever find out what it's even called, let alone have an official release.
BikeFairy is boring.
I loved the background piano in ep10 when Victor and Yurio were talking at the beach.
Fuck off FatFairyfags.
He is already homo.
I want Bikefairy fags to leave.
You should know by now after those times they wreak the threads to not give them any attention.
Would be nice, but I doubt it. The theme is probably Yuuri + finalists (and Viktor).
That's an image of Piggy and Fairy though.
Not even one, but they won't get one. Not enough space and they are unimportant. I doubt even Fairy gets another cover either.
Oh boy, here they come again.
Piggy is straight
Honestly, I really hope they release the BGM OST. There're so many lovely background tracks and the skating track album has been doing great sales wise.
I've seen Yoneda Kou drawing them though.
I loved all her BL mangas.
This is cute. I've really grown fond of Piggy and Fairy's relationship. Hope they get a lot of private scene's together in season 2.
For real, they've gone crazy after being BTFO by BaldFat.
Pair dancing with Chris and he'd have one hand on his butt
Fairy looks like someone who is being forced to dance with their Dad.
That's what makes it so adorable.
I wonder how their relationship develops from now on. I hope that they bond some more and maybe even troll Viktor together occasionally. That would be great, I want Fairy to have more genuine friends.
Well Otsuka described their relationship like siblings, so, its kind of accurate.
This is cute!
JJ will be on the 6th cover instead of Victor. Also I think Korea will get one.
Kill yourself BikeMila retard.
It's just that hetfag again.
They are right desu.
They're even accusing of the Piglet being straight too, they're desperate.
With his onii-chan, you mean.
What a qt3.14159. He deserves to be shown some good lovin'.
This is my fetish.
Every day I fall in love with Piglet more and more. I didn't believe in husbandos before YoI, but now I do and I'm saved.
A burger ice dancer ready to make history.
This should be a cover. Best couple
Decided to check around for sales reaction
Flip flop butthurt everywhere
The only this could be better if they made a movie and it approached Madoka/Eva records.
a or b?
B. I want to see Fairy happy and smiling.
Did Victor even keep his old apartment? He had everything shipped to Hasetsu.
I'm pretty sure he only had his old costumes and some clothes shipped to Hasetsu. Or am I misremembering?
Don't tell me you don't remember at least the bust and lamps around his bed.
I guess I wasn't paying attention to the surroundings that much, then.
Is this from the same person who likes Nakamurashit?
Admits the characters are gay
Do people even know what bait is anymore?
I have a feeling that some people started using it as anything that contains homos (since it "baits" fujos into watching) while other people still use its correct meaning. It's slowly becoming a buzzword that has no meaning at all.
that tweet was from 10 years ago. when will these faggots shut up.
That reminds me of people being butthurt on twitter that MP100 didn't win irrelevant crunchyroll awards because YOI won everything. Shit's hilarious because it's mostly salty fujos because their favorite stuff isn't gay who complain and say that YOI won only because of normies and other fujos.
where is this from?
flirting is sexual harassment
Is it a review?
YOI really didn't deserve to win best animation though, Mob Psycho 100 was great and got a lot of effort poured into it in that aspect. But then again, this is CR what we are talking about and the YOI hype is still high.
Rebuttal of a rebuttal from that guy's reviews
It's from the dude who wrote the queerbait review. I followed his profile and noticed a gay man posted him an opinion on why his review was bullshit and that was his answer.
No one implied that it deserved it.
Has nobody called him out on liking Junjou Romanatica of all things?
It's driving me nuts. The moment you acknowledge the characters are gay it stops being "bait".
I don't think most people care, Mal also has a lot of underage members.
I agree, even though I watched MP100 when my computer and wifi were all fucked up. But people use the opportunity to shit on YOI and its fanbase just because it's gay (from hetfags) or because it's gay but not the correct way and it attracted the "wrong" kind of fujos instead of the right kind of fujos, meaning the ones who hate gay canon stuff but love reading porn of their crack pairings from actual queerbaiting shows in secret (from fujos in denial). Also, some people say that YOI shouldn't even count as an anime because normies like it.
I don't get why people are mad. Who fucking cares about CR awards, but the reactions on other hand are fucking hysterical.
To some people it also means to exploit homosexuality in order to create buzz or sell shit. Considering it was a surprise YoI went full homo and they made no big deal about the characters being gay it wouldn't be fair to call it that either tough.
It's not gay enough for some western fujos. Or the right kind of gay done to their satisfaction. Honestly, bitter fujos hating on yoi are worse than hetfags at this point.
I do agree that YoI didn't deserve to win the animation award, but it's not a big deal. I'm still laughing at the butthurt it generated.
Sometimes they're impossible to distinguish, because in the end they still complain about it being gay.
To some people it also means to exploit homosexuality in order to create buzz or sell shit. Considering it was a surprise YoI went full homo and they made no big deal about the characters being gay it wouldn't be fair to call it that either tough.
Fanservice is not bait necessarily. Fanservice can be integrated into the narrative.
Otaku favorite series is Bake and it's full of fanservice, yet no one doubts these girls want to fuck Arararagi.
Actual bait in YoI.
Yes, it's only bait if it leads nowhere. Such a simple concept and yet retards don't get it.
and some people still fell for that and still think he wanted to confess
Appearing naked in the hot spring to a dude who seduced you and you think wants to fuck you is sexual harassment
To be honest it wouldn't have been too out of place, but I'm glad it was just baited and her daughters of all people barged in this scene.
and some people still fell for that and still think he wanted to confess
Kinda makes some scene in episode 5 or 6 with NishigorI really bad.
Fanservice wasn't really what I meant. It's more often a 'special episode' thing. Like when the MC turns out to have a cousin who's gay that doesn't know how to come out to their father so the MC will help them out for an episode and the media can gloat about how great the show does gay representation but the cousin remains a minor character. Or a major character turns out to be gay right when the ratings start to drop in order to create buzz. It's more of a Western thing and I can't think of any anime examples.
It wouldn't since I figured that's what was going on. So it baited me too. But they killed it immediately and it's it's funny as hell the cute young childhood friend is a married woman with three kids. And the fact they a lot of their friendship had to do with Victor and skating.
Hetfags got BTFO in episode 1.
I want him to deliever
retards still think it lead to nowhere
It still scary how much recognition this chinese cartoon got.
goalposts keep moving. nobody would question them if they were a het couple
well when you got skating legends talking about it its got to generate some buzz
It's more of a Western thing and I can't think of any anime example
Because with western audiences the gay community is an actual marketing auidence unlike in Japan where they pretend homos don't exist or have a huge voice. Therefore queerbaiting doesn't really exist in anime but fujobait does.
From a purely philosophical standpoint, does mappa and the yoi staff deserve more credit for the animation than mp100 staff, on the basis that attempting to do animation that no one has really gone for (a lot of ice skating sequences, dances, human movement and expressions) without relying on rotoscoping no less, than animation that the industry is well versed in? The mp100 fights, while well directed and nicely finished, is not something that original in anime. Is adapting ONE's simplistic art style as praise worthy as animating original costumes and varied characters (to their credit, they made ONE art much better).
I did watch and enjoy both series (and I read the mob manga) and I don't take stock in the value of the cr poll because that's retarded. But I do think even if the quality in yoi suffered, it was due to the (perhaps overly) ambitious goals of the staff (and the ridiculous scheduling delays but that's endemic of the industry) and they deserve recognition on that front.
Mfw when I get to call hetfag delusional
What a time to be alive.
I don't miss these earlier threads.
I'm not a fan of "well, you tried" approach. It might have been too ambitious, but they simply failed in this regard, as much as I love YoI. It's not that I don't appreciate it, but the other show simply looked better.
YOI shouldn't even count as an anime because normies like it.
If actual LGBT community got baited into giving sales because of that then it is really sad, albeit I am still of belief most of those sales are fujoshi audience.
kek, lets all speak for da poor nip gay fags who suffered because of yoi. its not like i dont see a ton of homo otaku liking baldfat fanart or anything, poor them being bamboozled by sayokubo.
I love how this retards assumes that all fujos are straight.
only straight girls like gay anime stuff! because thats whats written on wikipedia or some shit.
I don't, but they are fun to look back.
Reminder me of the sales thread were someone said they shouldn't have bought YoI but some "real anime".
I think he did but that it was a joke to show that yuri was perma-cucked
Yeah I loved that, that's when I thought it wouldn't just be your average fujobait.
I think he did but that it was a joke to show that yuri was perma-cucked
Does it even count as cuckholdy if that pairing wasn't even into the author mind?
Honestly it kinda feel like the one who got "cucked" is the audience.
Well im not against enjoying the show, but there is no doubt this is getting a huge pass on stuff that it would not be getting if the cast was female. To each their own but you can at least acknowledge a genuine criticism about the show and still enjoy it. When it comes to this show people just want to shout you down.
There has been discourse about this show since day one. Even review brigading on MAL, what more critiism do these niggas want?
Well im not against enjoying the show, but there is no doubt this is getting a huge pass on stuff that it would not be getting if the cast was female
Such as? I would watch the hell out of it if everything remained the same, but the cast was female.
Some people think anime as a whole is an ultra-niche hobby, you know, the kind of people who think they're in some secret club because they like midly popular stuff like Love Live or whatever. Even though it really depends on the anime, because I wouldn't call DBZ, Pokémon or Captain Tsubasa niche at all, in Japan or in the West.
It's obvious now she was always a Victor proxy after that monologue
I don't know a lot of straight fujos irl, me included, yet I see LGBT people insult fujos because we're supposedly all straight and disrespecting 3d gay guys, so it's actually pretty funny people think that.
There are a ton of shows with a female cast that aren't critisized because sjw rule wherr you can't talk critque something with women involved or you hate all grills! Oh except Keijio apparently thats free game.
That's how I saw it as well, it was always about muh Viktor the entire time. Honestly I think that the reason Yuuri was a virgin wasn't really his retardation (although it may have played a role), rather it was his complete fixation on Viktor.
That's because SJWs (and let's be honest, it's usually SJWs finding "problematic" aspects in this show) use straight people as some sort of boogeyman.
I honestly don't get how Yaoi is insulting to all gay men, I mean rape tropes and seme/uke divide aside (although homos already do that shit with the bottom/top shit) most of it is just fluffy bullshit. Its like saying shoujo is an insult to all heterosexuals.
The worst is that some of them are straight but pretending they're not for some reason, or they're insulting themselves all the time and calling themselves problematic.
Rape tropes aren't even exclusive to yaoi, written and drawn by women or not. They should know that since they complained so much about 50 shades of grey.
Nah, I doubt he wanted to confess to his married friend with 3 kids when he's also friends with her husband. It was hetbait to make some people think he liked her, when he didn't
I don't get it either. It's insulting to gay men and figuring skating, but gay figure skaters like it a lot.
He wouldn't have confess ed with the intent of getting together, but to say "hey I liked you" and get closure like in every other loser girl in shoujo. An honorable suicide run.
Are your hearts ready for real life Celestino yet?
I don't get this.
Hey, I know it's totally futile because you're married with children and all, but I'm still gonna say that I liked you and make everything that much more awkward between us!
Who does this?
That would actually be somewhat adorable.
Chris really is offending for gay audience, even gay figure skaters hate him.
Because it was a gag.
I repeat that I think he was going to confess, her official character description even implies it, but that it was a throwaway joke to BTFO hetfags that shouldn't be taken seriously at all. I think people are reading too deeply into it.
3D YoI is getting out of hand.
Idiots. And guess what Yuuri is.
Not Adam Rippon
I doubt it. He didn't like her like that.
wtf, I love Celestino now
"The girl of Yuri's dreams"
He can be bi, it's okay.
Autistic nips. Seriouslythis happens a lot in mango, I know you have a gf I just needed to say it so I can move on gig. And it wouldn't necessarily have ruined anything, they don't have to make a big deal out of a past hopeless crush.
ARE WE FINALLY GETTING YUURI'S FANBOY POSTERS OF VICTOR?
Yuuri will probably become more of a proper older brother and friend to him, Yakov and Lilia are filling the parts of parents for him. Seems they're going for building Yurio a family and giving him some stability.
Is that not just the shitty one where they put them all together instead of selling them separately?
too autistic to confess properly when they have a chance
confess when it doesn't matter
Fucking nips, I really don't understand.
Adam Rippon loves and identifies with him
No he has to be gay. He can only be gay.
It's actually just akogare but you are right about the crush. Yuri is bi, it's not a big deal, he was still ten times more obsessed with Victor even as a kid.
I want to fuck yandere Hitler.
I think that's why he liked her. They had Victor in common.
Botched machine translation.
Try to be a little less retard, retard kun
Why can't they just sell them separately? What is the problem?
Let's settle it
Half the time with these confessions they never had a chance and were aware of the whole time. It's not really about getting the guy/girl but needing to do/overcome something for your own self or something like that. Nips probably think it builds character.,
There's a line. It's a long one.
I don't know, you'd think they'd figure out by now it would print money. I don't understand why so much of the merch is still just tat.
He probably liked her before Victor because as he says she was cute and good at skating and supported him.
Yurio best boy and winner.
I want to stand at the end of that long line.
I choose the female characters
I also want that Yuuri's poster shown in the train station and in his parents' onsen.
You can just say Yurio, JJ.
Who is your favorite YoI girl? I choose Lilia.
Best sensei, best girl, best wingman(female).
Mila, I want more scenes of her picking on other skaters.
People keep using bait for YoI
I don't get it.
because they lost and they are butthurt that they lost to fujo, that's why. No one would give a flying fuck about none of this stuff otherwise.
Cake is best girl as always.
Minako and Mila are fine too.
I love all of them though
Do you think she'll lift Pig at some point?
I love that one. Piggy at his cutest.
Not with that ugly-ass fishnet top.
I hope Lilia will appear more in season 2.
I want her and Yakov to get back together, they're cute.
The best one
I don't think she act that way with Yuuri.
Me too, Lilia and Yakov are my OTP. I also hope that Lilia gets closer to Yuuri through ballet.
I'd also like to see some rivalry between the female skaters too.
Johnny Weir talks about how much he likes the show
muh LGBT audience
I love them all but I'd say Minako because she's my type or Lilia because she's cool. I want to see Sara and Mila skate in season 2, at least a little bit.
Lilia, Mila, and the triplets.
There's a rumor within the community that modest japanese skater Katsuki once pole danced in a banquet.
'M-Masaka! Our Yuri could never!'
One of many examples.
Imagine the in-universe shitstorm if someone leaked the photos.
All of them. They're all best girls.
How many gallons of semen would be expelled in the name of the Pig
How does he look so cute in that outfit?
Reminder me of that comic where Victor trains Yuri to kiss him the morning because he's a shy nip.
I wonder what Victor's reaction was when he first came to Hasetsu and saw this poster plastered everywhere.
Luckily Phichit wasn't there.
I hope Yurio doesn't send some photos to Yuuko to stir shit up. Even if he doesn't have pole dancing photos, he must have photos of his own dance battle.
Blue/white really is Yuuri's combination, I want to see more costumes with these colors.
Welcome to the madness
This is proof that god exists. If Phichit were there, he'd post everything online and Piggy would have to commit sudoku.
Eh, this one would at least gave a chance because the guy is single (I think) and only likes someone and not married with kids.
Viktor will dress his beloved student in colors that suit him the most. I hope he shares our taste.
Alternatively, he would notice Viktor's romantic intentions earlier since he'd get some context to his behavior. So, who knows.
Well, he showed up and immediately disrobed.
The only reason the photos weren't everywhere.
At the very least Yuuri would know about it right after it happened because best friends always let you know what you did drunk
Is that why he has never confessed point blank to Victor?
Yes, Phichit would make sure to tag Yuuri in his instagram posts.
I think it was shown in the ending that the phone that had all the photos of all battles was his I'm too lazy to check it over again sorry, it could have been victor's maybe
Yeah, Yurio had the most, including the poledancing ones.
He really had too many photos for someone who claimed that Yuuri's behavior was disgusting. Sure looks like he enjoyed it.
No.6 didn't operate on fanservice
Chris is a stereotypically gay predator
What the fuck with that tweet though
The poledancing ones were on Chris' phone.
He enjoyed it, but he's a tsundere after all
Yuuri would probably be a bit heavy, I do want to see her poke fun of him though.
He also complained about he was "dragged" into the dance battle with Yuuri but the pictures show he was pretty eager to do it and prove himself.
He's tsundere as hell.
He's a salty hypocritical fuck and we should stop giving him attention.
Seriously what's mal issue with this series. They even bandwagons for reviews and they keep doing it.
He had like 50 boxes
I don't think so, look again.
If he pisses of Yuuri too much, Yuuri might lift both her and Fairy.
MAL are retards. It's best to ignore them.
She'll make that pig beautiful.
The guy was a homo and fucking another guy.
I want Lilia and Minako to argue on ballet aesthetics.
The real best girl battle
Would bring popcorn/10
Piggy probably weighs ~55 kilos and Fairy ~50. It's not a huge difference. Mila is a strong girl.
At the very end of the ending credits is shown the russian phone with the piroshki background having a gallery of all the photos.
Would be interesting if they already know each other, Yuuri did say she Minako did international ballet and won a lot of awards.
without relying on rotoscoping no less
A huge chunk of the sequences are obviously rotoscoped, almost all of Eros is rotoscoped.
It was funny to see Kenji Miyamoto dancing Eros because you can now spot his body in the anime. Good thing they redrew the final pose for a no rotoscoped one in episode 6 onwards.
Fairy is around 45kg at most, he's too small and slim to weight 50kg.
From what I've seen MAL has always had an issue with gay shows and much of their community is overrun with hetfags and underage fujos who still like old-school yaoi. This still pisses me off to no fucking end though. There are people hell-bent on ruining the reputation of this series instead of just ignoring it. I can't think of any anime in recent times that's resulted in this many unnecessary shitstorms and whining. Free was close but this is another level. A shame because the show itself is mostly happy and comfy.
I do stay the hell away from that site, but it does bother me that they're trying to influence people's impressions of the show without/before actually watching it. I hope enough people ignore their bullshit as well.
Yuuri's 10cm taller, not sure how much their weight difference would be. Yuuri has quite a bit more muscle.
Also meant to reply to
Or Minako would as Lilia her autograph.
Western popularity is irrelevant and most of it doesn't even come from the anime community anyway. People are just really pissed that a show with gay and aimed at females is popular.
Then Minako should take Lilia out for drinking. Minako really needs to visit Yuuri in Russia.
No way. He needs a lot more muscle weight than that to pull off quads. Mao Asada weighs 50 kilos, and Fairy is roughly her size.
Retarded translation. It's worded like what Minami feels for Yuuri and what Guanghong feels for Phichit, akogare is a word for people you admire and not neccessarily crush on but this is YoI and they have made a distinction between akogare and ai in it's own language and themes.
I wonder if Minako's gotten more students as the result of Yuuri getting more recognition, her studio was in a major slump. Though I'd love for her to go to St. Petersburg, she's probably been there before.
Fairy weighs 1 kg more than me
I'm 4 cm shorter than him
Let! Him! Eat!
Also that Yuuri never knew what love was until Victor came
She could open a studio there (with the aid of Lillia maybe). I bet in St. Petersburg she would be more successful than in a small town like Hasetsu is.
I've seen a lot of Western "nerds" feeling offended when anime aimed at adult men with mostly female characters are criticized because that's sexism according to them (like love live or kill la kill, as much as I like the latter), but when literally anything targeted at women or young girls is slightly popular in the West, regardless of its quality, they'll shit on it non-stop. Not because they dislike it but because they think it's offensive for the pettiest reasons. In yoi's case it's because of fatphobia and fetishizing gay men. And then they claim to be feminists right after that, it's hilarious. Why can't people realize we're a bunch of people who are just watching cartoons in the end?
He probably tried to steal one and spent 15 minutes fighting the glue until he gave up and walked away sad.
Holy shit no wonder why he doesn't seem to be growing much.
He succeeded in stealing one and had it immediately shipped back to Russia, Yakov held on to it for him.
And he said Victor was the first person he wants to be binded to
He'll start packing on the pounds when he takes his growth spurt, his appetite should increase like how it normally does with teenage boys. It's going to totally throw him off skating wise though, for his sake hopefully he doesn't get taller than Victor.
Everyone, including Viktor, thinking baldfat will live together
Turns out he's living with Minako in her new studio
I seriously wonder what it is that makes MAL users so cancerous. 90% of their threads are worse than /a/'s worst shitposting and that is saying something.
Holy shit thanks for that fucking picture
As amusing as it is I doubt Minako would leave Japan, her clients probably increased thanks to Yuuri.
Victor would burn the studio down, like in that comic
Another update because I always forget something.
I hope we'll still see Minako often, either her going to competitions to support Yuuri or watching him online.
I get the impression there's a lot of underage teenage boys on there, probably a lot of middle schoolers.
I love the one on the ice with Yuuri just blinking.
It's kinda funny to see all the /u/fag women get pissed that Yuri on Ice is popular.
Thank you for the compilation. It's so cute, I could watch this on repeat forever.
This is bad for my heart.
I don't get it at all. There are many genres I don't enjoy that have popular shows and the thought of getting angry because of it never even crosses my mind. What motivates these people?
Thank you user, cute as fuck.
They just want to prove to people on the internet that they don't have shit taste like the pleb who watch yoi and other popular shows I guess. In that case it's nothing new.
They want to prove superiority. A lot also have this irrational fear that since this is successful and popular the entire industry will suddenly no longer cater to them.
So they shove their misplaced anger onto the show itself and people who enjoy it.
This makes me genuinly happy and makes my stomach feel like butterflies, i'm in too deep.
Yep. I remember reading it once and there was a poster about a 14 something asking if YoI was Yaoi.
Ah, my kokoro. I still can't get over Viktor's girly jump when Yuuri convinces him to put the quad flip in his program. He's just so cute.
It always kek when they complain about the lack of kissing.
They are literally more affectionate than 90% anime couple.
On an artistic standpoint Mob Psycho still wins because of their use of different medias (Paint on glass animation) and they evened out the budget for each episode.
But for passion I can see why YOI would get the slightest bit of upper-hand. The production in this series is hellish, let's not kiss it's ass the only solid animation occurred outside the staking.
I counted 15 hugs, that's more than one an episode. Most straight couples don't even get a quarter of that.
My god, the visible progression from hugs which are initiated by one party while the other is slightly shocked/embarrassed to enthusiastic hugging is killing me. These two are too much.
Yeah, I've seen anime where a fucking hug was the symbolic/climactic "kiss". I actually felt spoiled.
Also that hug Yuuri initiates before Onsen on Ice is so underrated. Love the way he slides his arms around Victor's neck and looks all desperate to keep him. Pig a cute.
Pretty sure we saw his sexual awakening when Yuuko showed him Victor for the first time as a kid. His eyes only get twinkly like that when he's looking at Victor or thinking about him.
I don't think if it could be called sexual at that age. He most definitely found him beautiful, though.
His eyes only get twinkly like that when he's looking at Victor or thinking about him.
Like this? One of his cutest moments.
He was a teenager with pictures of Victor all over his room. Most of them not even athletic. There was some sexual awakening happening at some point.
Yes, at some point, but I still don't think that it happened when he saw Viktor for the first time.
Textbook shoujo heroine eyes here. Pig a cutie.
Just came to my mind the though of Victor spoiling Yuuri in St Petersburg. It's obvious because he rabu him but I remembered how spoiled he was at Yutopia. He's probably so thankful he's gonna just outdo whatever we though he would already do.
In the beginning it was probably admiration and adoration, it's a very 12 year old like thing for him to name his dog after him too. It probably gradually turned into a proper crush.
Probably bought him some more new clothes, Yuuri should be set for the cold though since he lived in Detroit. Lots of yummy food I bet.
I want to see Viktor struggling between making Yuuri taste Russian specialties and caring about his weight as his coach.
Thoughts of sex don't need to be involved for that to happen. It's normal to have crushes before puberty even hits and that realization doesn't apply to only straight kids.
Yuuri, we must find a way to burn all these calories!
winks suggestively, gets in his personal space, starts groping him all over
Yuuri interprets it as a command to go jogging
Lots of yummy food I bet
Nah, Yuuri needs his diet.
He will probably let Yuuri take over his room and have the entire bed only for him and sleep on the couch, tho Yuuri will feel bad and call him to come back.
He probably will take care of every chore and not let Yuuri move a finger, tho he will struggle because he never fucking does anything for himself.
Depending on Yuuri's success rate convincing him he doesn't need to do all that this could go on for a week or a month even.
Just make it a once a week type of thing, special treat for the end of a good week.
He would be eleven maybe twelve? That's a normal age for a kid to get their first crush and sexual feelings.
thoughts of sex don't need to be involved
I know it's normal to have crushes before puberty, but I don't see them as necessarily sexual. Though that may be just my point of view.
I-I want Victor to take his Yuri to the bridge of kisses... Sasuga MAPPA
this has purified my soul
Yuuri dashes out immediately, thinking that he's pleasing Viktor
Viktor crying the night away why hugging Makkachin
Seriously though, S2 needs more Makkachin. He's the best pet. Yurio's bae is welcome too.
Victor probably can't cook worth shit.
Do you think that Pichit and Yuuri fapped to Victor together?
He'll make Yurio come over and force him to cook for them, because he's a puppet master.
Yurio, Yuuri is planning to leave because my terrible cooking already damaged him to much
Then Fairy proceeds to make their dinner everyday
He's such a good boy.
You know what, Victor had probably Yurio come over and teach him some recipes before Yuuri's arrival so he can surprise him and be alone.
He'll surprise us actually be good at it, disgustingly so.
Is not the same as the original release, but this guy has covers of most of the BGMs
Fatphobia is most stupid thing I seen in long time even hetfag try to no homo can't compare that. Those retards think ice skate is sumo or some shit
Yuuri, then Phichit.
This made me chortle. Yuuri looks so confident while Yurio wants none of his shit. kek.
Or the right kind of gay done to their satisfaction.
I've seen a complaint from some gay tumblrina that Yuuri and Victor are "too straight" as a gay couple.
Is the user with the room with all the posters and piggys here or did anyone save their pic? I need some poster inspiration.
Nips were most satisfied with YoI out of the fall 2016 lineup
That reminds of that insurance commercial with a sumo wrestler ice skating. They have no clue how important weight is in sports and what it can do to your joints.
I actually find it offensive to pro athletes. They go through great pains to make sure their weight is exactly where it needs to be, yet these idiots think someone should be able to gorge himself on 900kcal meals, get fat, and still be on their level? That includes Yuuri, who got fat because he was depressed and in a bad place, he's still an athlete who's always worked hard on his body and deserves to be in top form instead of being coddled over his weight gain.
They need to stop taking it so fucking personally. Nobody is on Yuuri's parent's case about their weight, because it isn't being fat that's the problem, it's being fat and ice skating. Yuuri clearly doesn't take it personally.
Thank you so much for sharing! I love the piano tracks.
As expected of the AOTS. Surprised to see Keijo so high.
that Yuuri and Victor are "too straight" as a gay couple.
This will never make any sense as a legitimate criticism. By the end of it they have less fixed roles than how other gay couples are often presented, and the pair skate literally couldn't have been more symbolic of that. I've decided those people never finished watching (highly likely) or finding excuses to validate their hate. I'm serious, it's like you can actually feel the envy of its popularity. They're just trying to throw whatever might stick even if it doesn't make sense.
Fat activists are so beyond delusional. It's not even hard to lose weight, you just have to be very disciplined. Though from what I understand in Japan if you're fat they will tell you straight to your face, Tumblerina's would have temper tantrums.
They act like a normal couple instead of the stereotype, honestly I think it's part of why the show had such broad appeal.
I was one of the people who called this a shoujo fantasy (Because it was), but it's bullshit to even think that after episode 11.
"Uke" in BL manga don't act like Yuri and Victor is femine as fuck.
It doesn't look like he will grow more than 10 cm though
I've decided those people never finished watching
I find this must be true for a lot of critics. It's not that I think someone couldn't possibly dislike it after finishing it, but so much of the criticism is general as fuck rather than referring to specific scenes, or just straight up incorrect by the end. I also can't imagine that all the mad male otaku saying 'it's just disgusting fujoshit fanservice with no substance!!' actually watched it at all rather than just judged off screenshots. They'd all drop the series as soon as they saw Victor's ass, in any case.
Exactly. How nicely their relationship is depicted plays a huge part in why the show is so loved. Yet antis try to downplay it by comparing them to shitty bl or fujobait pairings.
I don't know why this gets to me so personally but it does
Yuuri is 10 cm taller than Yurio, I figure he'll be taller than him.
so much of the criticism is general as fuck rather than referring to specific scenes, or just straight up incorrect by the end
This is how I know too. And when you call them out on it the response is normally just something like
Y-you're just saying that because you can't refute me!!
and not much else.
It's really fucking obvious.
Or when people try to downplay its success by saying that "its expected of a fujo anime" when it literally sold twice as much as the next fujosports.
Why? Short russian men exist too, you know.
What really gets me is people saying 'it's only popular because of the gay couple', as if it's not totally normal and reasonable (even praiseworthy) for a series to be popular because of the romance between the main characters. It's partly a romcom and is highly character driven, it'd be a huge failure if the couple WASN'T a big draw.
Just noticed the back of his jacket, how did they sneak in an Olympic's reference?
Basically they're trying to convince themselves it's nothing and it'll just be forgotten or something.
They tweaked the logo just enough to avoid copyright issues.
They did the same with the Grand Prix competitions even if the subtitles didn't reflect it, for example the Rostelecom Cup was called "Hellofon Cup" in the show.
But is that really blatant enough? They already had another Olympics ref in ep 10 apparently.
S2 should use real-life advertisers like T&B for even more euros.
Guess it depends on how anal they are about their copyright, if it's still the same on the BD then there's probably no issue.
And they are only doing that because they are afraid of a potentional "YoI effect" on the industry.
It would work really well with this show too.
Even though we already know Victor is a huge deal it's somehow still really amazing to imagine him at the Olympics, and presumably winning.
Kek. I still remember when chanel's sales are boosted just because of an inconspicuous black tub of lipbalm. Amd they didnt even know why
but so much of the criticism is general as fuck rather than referring to specific scenes
Literally all bait criticism only talk about episode 7 and 10, literally ignoring every other scene in which they act like a couple.
But user, what else are they supposed to criticize? They didn't finish until the shitstorm that was ep12
Soon we'll get "reasons why YoI sucked" videos that are 60 minutes long. That's when you know you've made it.
Yeah, basically only those two and nothing else. And it's utterly devoid of context.
I'm sick of people wanting to be spoonfed, not like they wouldn't deny those things even it was. I've actually gotten very annoyed by western media for only telling shit without showing any of it, including gay characters. I like how you can feel the love between Yuuri and Victor and how their relationship gradually develops naturally throughout while still being sort of incidental to the plot.
Not even much other media cares to do that.
that perineum bulge
Right, kek. It still baffles me how invested these people are. It's sad that they don't have any other hobbies.
Sounds better than that buzzfeed article with tumblr posts praising it for being "progressive".
Man, what is wrong with West and their tendencies to see everything through political lenses. Even things that can't be measured with your set of standards because the culture it came from is too different from your own. It's ironic because you know these people are the types to complain about Eurocentrism and similar bullshit.
That ass is fucking fat
They do, they watch manry anime like harems or mecha shows. I know I should dismiss anime reviwers as retards but theres this one dumbass that likes to make fun of because lolol ghey! I get it if it was Free but Yoi doesn't treat homo as something to just draw people in, it also has some significance to the story.
Basically people talk about the milestones of their relationship and ignore other scenes because skaters can be touchy-feely in general.
They wanna be saviors for minorites in other countries.
To be fair, harem and mecha shows seem to be dwindling.
If anything, I'd say it's the largest part of the story because most of the skating feels just like medium to express their feelings.
Yuuri fapped to Victor, Phichit went along with it but was secretly fantasizing being spitroasted by Ciao Ciao and Yuuri.
Even the skaters say it's gay though and there's all those background people reacting to them. In context even their touching has more to it, like when Victor sounds all aroused because of Yuuri.
We better see that ass properly next season.
I feel sorry for the staff having to deal with them.
Victor finally got his commemorative photo.
His folder of Yuuri pics must be getting close to rivaling Makkachin's.
Like brother like sister. Even Yuuri finds Victor embarrassing.
I want to see her all dressed up, she's probably like Yuuri.
Lel, I never noticed it's the exact same expression
I hate YoI and it's shortage of Mari and Yuuri interactions.
Worst part is that they frame Yurio as Yuuri's younger brother, like if he didn't have a supporting sibling already.
