Synopsis

Reeling from his crushing defeat at the Grand Prix Finale, Yuuri Katsuki, once Japan's most promising figure skater, returns to his family home to assess his options for the future. At age 23, Yuuri's window for success in skating is closing rapidly, and his love of pork cutlets and aptitude for gaining weight are not helping either.

However, Yuuri finds himself in the spotlight when a video of him performing a routine previously executed by five-time world champion, Victor Nikiforov, suddenly goes viral. In fact, Victor himself abruptly appears at Yuuri's house and offers to be his mentor. As one of his biggest fans, Yuuri eagerly accepts, kicking off his journey to make it back onto the world stage. But the competition is fierce, as the rising star from Russia, Yuri Plisetsky, is relentlessly determined to defeat Yuuri and win back Victor's tutelage.

It doesn’t matter if you are a girl or a boy, you will enjoy this sports anime. I never thought that you could make a good anime about figure skating but Yuri on Ice proved me wrong.
The plot is one of a typical sports anime: the protagonist fails at the beginning and tries to succeed again with a lot of obstacles on his way to the top, (very simplified version).
It is beautiful animated, you can see how much effort and time they put in to the animation.
This is one of the rare anime that you can watch the first episode and decide if read more

Yuri on ice episode 1-4 preview

TL;DR :A story full of passionate and inspiration,a simple but tightened story

"Have you ever lost your passion before?"

-Story & character:
Yuri on ice is neither a simply ice-skating show,nor a yaoi show.It's all about passion and inspiration.A show that you'd amazed when you're watching it.

I usually don't watch sports or yaoi shows,since they are generally shallow and disgusting,but Yuri on ice is totally a different story.Yuri on ice is a show that you couldn't judge by its cover.A show that is out of the ordinary.

What's so special about Yuri on ice is that the story doesn't start from scratch.It starts from read more

I'm not really into sport animes, but I've decided to give Yuri!!! on ince a chance(because I really liked the characters design) and it surprised me!
The anime is wonderful! Many will think that it's a typical yaoi-bait. It may really have some suspect moments between Yuri and Victor, but that's not all. The characters are SO well worked, all of them are fun and have their particularity, they stoled my attention and made me want to be a part of it.

One of the things I most like about it, is the fact that it's not only one more typical sport anime with school students, making read more

NEWLY UPDATED REVIEW (SPOILER FREE)
I am definitely not a fan of sports anime as I am the most unsporty person on this planet and it so does not interest me in the slightest so naturally, I initially shrugged off this anime thinking it would be really based around ice skating and competitions with a heavy focus on the sport and what not. Now now that I've seen 7 episodes and continue to tune in weekly for this show, it definitely is full of championships, lots of skating which was something I really didn't think I'd enjoy watching.
I WAS WRONG. I don't know if its the read more
