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.

I write this as a gay adult man who's actually interested in proper M/M romantic representation and as someone who's jaded of queerbaiting and stereotypical heteronormative gay relationships in the shounen-ai genre. So when I was drawn into the hype that YOI offers a compelling storyline which extends beyond cheap queerbaiting and homo-fanservice, I was intrigued to say the least.

I am going to do my best to be entirely unbiased. There are certain redeeming qualities to the show that I think deserves mention.

a) Ethnic representation: It isn't often to see America being represented by a Latino, to see prominent cast members from Russia, read more

Once upon a time, there was a young man with a big dream. He idolized a famous Russian skater named “Victor Nikiforov” and hopes to skate on the very same ice as him. Initially, that dream sunk until Yuri was able to impress Victor by imitating his routine at perfection. You can guess what happens next. Victor is so impressed that he decides to be Yuri’s coach at the upcoming Grand Prix Finals.

As an original TV anime, Yuri on Ice doesn’t suffer from adaptation issues. It’s also directed by Sayo Yamamoto, known for her work Michiko to Hatchin, Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko read more

Okay. Inspired by my internet friends, I decided to watch this... And I could not stand it. I tried, but god damnit I could not do it.

Starting off: The story is god damn awful. I find it to be very... bad. I don't know how are you supposed to make a good story out of the sheer concept of this, but... This. No.

The art, oh my god. The animation is horrible. 8 or 4 frames for a freaking spin, and there's a whole Twitter account on how bad some frames are. The shots of the characters look derp as all fuck sometimes. I found a read more

2013's Free! has been called many things but perfect. But what's undeniable is that it helped broaden an avenue in mainstream media for more works that's been aptly described as "manservice" by the general anime viewing audience, by re-popularizing a genre of anime that's usually well tucked away, only seeing the light of day from those that go out of their way to seek it out. Yaoi isn't exactly new to the medium, but there's no denying that with the cultural shift towards LGBT acceptance occurring in the latter half of the 2000s and onward, that it's becoming a more blasé than taboo facet in read more
