I see. Fixed the display of foreign names according to ANN (I did it without seeing other sources with English display and I believe ANN hadn't posted it when I saw the news, so I guessed them before)

It's hard to imagine the correct name for foreign names displaying in Japanese.

The PV actually looks good and judging by the director, this series might just be one of the coolest things I can watch. Heck, even if there are gay undertones, I will probably still watch it.

Some other name corrections as per katakana:

Kazakhstan: Otabek
China: Ki

I like the country specific sports-brand logo details on the jackets. The PV was not great though... Hopefully there'll be actual gay rather than just fujobait scenes. Please don't disappoint me Yamamoto-sensei ):

It's displayed as "Jean Jack" in the PV, so I guess that might be the correct romanization?



I do hope it's Jean Jack and not Jean-Jacques. Jean Jack is a bit weird but somewhat cool.
Jean-Jacques is not a name suitable for anyone younger than 65 years old. At the very least.

I'm really excited for this. Figure skating is one of my favorite sports; it brings me back to the time when I was involved with the figure skating fandom for a while. It's not a sport you usually see in anime either - the only other figure skating anime I can think of is Ginban Kaleidoscope.

The animation and the choreography look beautiful, and I love the character designs. Coming from MAPPA and directed by Sayo Yamamoto... I have high hopes for this.

what the heck, for a minute there i thought it was yaoi.

you seemed to be confused here writers, it's YURI ON ICE. dumbos smh

anyway i had already planned on seeing this ever since it was announced. as i expected, the sakuga is amazing and relies heavily on character animation, something i had also predicted.

the character designs look cool (the glasses nigga looks like that MC from parasyte!), but my body is so ready for that sakuga. that's my only reason for watching it. i feel bad for anyone who expected plot, like some foolishly did for stride.

If this focus on the sport instead of boy love vibes (Free, Prince of Stride) I'm gonna watch it. Otherwise... sorry. Yaoi is not my cup of tea.

Its so freaking awesome seeing how there's going to be characters from several different countries! freaking fantastic!!!
and if the OST keeps it up this might become one of my favorite OST's in recent times
Also that pv ending LOL for some reason it didn't cross my mind that they might have undertones when it was first announced XD (too focused of the figure skating aspect) but eyyy I aint complaining >3>

I cannot grasp the idea people seem to have about how sports' anime (or any series where the cast mainly consists of the male gender) are homoerotic. Similar to Free! or Kuroko no Basket, this will likely support nil romantic interactions between the characters. If we would go by this sentiment, every singular group of men friendly with one another must be homosexual — which is of course untrue. I have yet to see the homoerotic side of this which people press on at all times.

Either way, this will be one of the anime I will be watching for next season. I adore the character design, and I adore figure-skating.

Figure skating is not a topic that can be told without any female character.

P.S Sorry for my english.


But if this is a Men's Single competition you do not need women, so..... your point is moot.
Not the greatest of riches, the warmth of my family, the tender embrace of a lover, or the offer of continuous success could ever triumph over all the yaoi I could ever enjoy.

Also, Switzerland's name is spelled Christophe in the PV, so wouldn't his name be romanticized (??) as such?

Wow, you guys have a good eye. The scrolling of the "Romanized" names are so fast in the PV that I cannot catch it. Fixed, Thanks.

If the title will exclusively show Men's Single competition, it will look like a "cute men deal cute things"
