THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Another great episode. The comedy works just right for the humor while there's some man service.

Victor's skating skills are still pretty evident. No wonder he's got a legion of fans.
On the other hand, there's Yuri Plisetsky, one of the most intimidating characters. As far as the direction goes, I like how they are developing character rivalries and giving them more personality.

Oh and hard to keep eyes off of those triplet kids. So funny!

Wow, Viktor guy is talking cynical while smiling. Russia Yuri (I think he's tsundere) came to get Victor guy back, and he decided to "teach" both "Yuuri" with a piece that has different arrangement. Both guys from Russia drew people attention. The triplet has a business mind at such a young age.

This shit is pretty fucking funny.

I think Victor is pretty clearly gay or bi, but if people are like "eww fags in muh animu" they can piss off.

I love the humour in this show. The faces and gags have cool timing.

Yurio is awesome, too, his antics are fun to watch, he looks up to Victor more than Yuri does.

I have to admit, Yuri on Ice is exceeding my expectations so far. I enjoyed episode 2 even more than episode 1!
The comedy was on point. :D Super fun, can't wait to see some more scating and how this little match will turn out. Why dio I have the feeling Victor will end up coaching both of them somehow? Ha. xD
I'm guessing Yurio will win, Victor will go to Russia with him to coach Yurio - and takes Yuri with him to coach him, too.

I've waited all week for this episode for the next episode, and they did not disappoint. A quick but effective build up to next week's episode and some nicely placed gay shit. I'm super excited to see both Yuri's trying out such a new style for them

Great episode! Viktor was an absolute savage at the end. Good build up for what's about to come. The ED is seriously the best thing ever. It's fun to see how fierce Yurio is, I love how he's paralleled with a cat (well, a tiger), the reaction he had when he saw that sweatshirt was super cute. xD

Very good follow up episode.

The opening segments were quite strong with the Yaoi tease. xD
Victor looks like a nice guy but truth is he's absolutely savage, He wrecks both Yuri's at every chance he gets. XD

Yurio's reaction to that T-Shirt was really funny.

Those triplets had quite the shiny eyes when they realized the marketing potential of the exhibition match. :3
Nice display of resolve from both Yuri's at the end , Looking forward to their competition.

Those triplets mean business. They already organized an event!?

I wonder who will win the "Hot Springs on Ice" competition.

God I love Victor. I love him and both Yuris but I root for Nipon Yuri ofc. Yurio is that kind of character that I like seeing his pride shattered. Well,him winning is more likely to happen but hope never dies.
Damn Yuri,just admit you want to live with Victor and have him all to yourself.

The first episode was better, there was way too much comedy feel to this one for my taste. But still, I look forward next episodes and where it is headed.

As they were playing the music could imagine Yuri skating to agape and Yurio to eros cause it fits their personalies,so glad Victor switched them to go against what people would expect.

Really liked the episode.

If I had to name one thing that I didn't like as much then it would that the chain of events got so fast at times that it felt a bit "hasty" in my opinion. Like I know they really need to get the cast together and make those character interactions happening but it was kinda hard to follow at times. Since we're now in the training phase I can see this being an one time thing tho so it's fine :)

Enjoying the comedy in this ep. Yurio and his cat obsession lol.


I didn't expect that twist of Yuri assigned to "Eros" and Yurio to "Agape". Looking forward to see how both of them interpret their themes.

Felt a little better than ep1. I even liked some of the comedy, some other was whatever, which is already an improvement compared to ep1. They still had quite a lot of scenes I disliked heavily. I don't understand why they would go through the effort and create a certain mood, be it sad, serious or some other emotional theme, to then destroy it by suddenly crashing into a wall with their comedy attempt. Reminds me very much of Shigatsu when they had these great emotional scenes, music, conversation, expressions - everything was just right. And then she would kick him or something out of nothing. It's the same here, just with stupid jokes that aren't funny at all.

Yurio made this episode for me tbh. Yuri still needs to get out of his shell more but so far I'm liking him.
As for victor, I want to like him but I just hate how they make him seem so dorky, idk I just thought his personality would be more on the serious side.
Nice episode nonetheless

Ep felt fast paced but what the hay,it didn't disappoint and I was giggling quite a lot. I noticed how the OP got a slight moderation. They drew in a rink in the final few seconds.

ERMAIGERD. I squealed way too much at the Victor x Yuri K. moment where Katsuki backed out and crashed into the wall. Let's not forget how Katsuki reached mach speed trying to hide the posters in his room.

Victor is SAVAGE. Calls him a piggy ;3 . SO KYUT!

Yuri P.'s reaction about not posting on insta coz he'd be found out but that resolve shatters as soon as he sees the tiger shirt. And his eyes X3

Victor won't be playing favorites it seems which is nice.

I'm surprised that the two Yuri's are gonna perform a piece that isn't them. Excited to see how that turns out

Yurio turned out a bit better than he appeared initially, but I hope he improves over time and stops being an edgelord. Maybe it will be one of those cases where the rivalry leads to him being a better person.

Damn those gay moments might scare me away. I'll try to survive though but it'll be tough if Victor is going to get too close to either of the Yuris every time he's with them.

News about Victor coaching the Japanese Yuri spreads far and wide and the Russian Yuri is pissed because he was supposed to be Victor's disciple. Lol when he takes those pictures but then tries to control himself and not post them on social media because his coach will find out. But he succumbs and ends up posting the tiger shirt on the net lol.

And Victor gives the two Yuris the choice between two tunes to skate to. And he gives them the opposite tunes the chose because doing something out of character is what will surprise people. If you do the expected then where's the fun in that? Both Yuris are determined to have Victor all for themselves... that probably sounded wrong... But whatever. Overall a nice episode (save for those tones which might make me run away). But the question is, when will the Japanese Yuri get his new hairdo? He should really start looking like a bishounen instead of the loser he looks like now.

Nah you're not. I'm not excusing it but it is pretty typical though at least from my experience with seasonals anyway. So long as we get more delicious skating later.

From my comment on Kissanime:

Omg I love how there is new little changes in the Op. That's really cool ^-^ I think in the last episode, we get to see the full animated OP and what is should look like and that would just be the best. Onwards to watching the episode!
Edits:
First Half:
The fanservice is real, fan girling all the way lol.
Also, I love the idea of a dance coach, Yuri is lucky to be surrounded by such talented people.

Half-way point: Alright, so I love how important the media is and how big of an impact it can create towards something so small. I think this is going to be one of the major points throughout this series. Maybe cause problems later on?

Alright, I love the way its going so far and also I think this series is going to be amazing by all the little elements it has. Definitely watching this one to the end. Also, thank god they called the other Yuri, Yurio, now I can actually speak about him without getting him mixed up with Yuri. The comedy is great so far and just the right amount of it. ^-^

I have to say I'm very glad Yurio is turning out to be the exact kind of character I want him to be.

My one complaint is that the episodes are over way too fast! They're so well-paced, I hardly notice the time pass.

No disappointment from my side. For some reason I knew this episode would have such low quality animation.

How has this anime made me smile so much in just 2 episodes?
It has way much more personality than I was expecting, and the main 3 play off of each other so well. I'm really liking Yankee Yuri/Yurio, his reactions are priceless and it further proves just how much of an awesome Seiyuu Kouki Uchiyama is!

Manservice and slight BL subtext is there, but it's easily played off bc Victor is so eccentric and enigmatic...heck it'd feel weirder if he wasn't doing something.

It's gonna be so interesting to see these routines though, and I really loved the crap out of that second arrangement...can't wait to see how Yuri tackles it!

I'm so glad we're getting some high-quality fujoshi bait this season tbh, you can tell the staff is really having fun with this one.
Yurio is a gem. That Sweatshirt scene was the best thing to come out of the season so far imo.

I thought it was a bit of a drop in quality from last week, but still fun and promising. Viktor's silly faces got a bit annoying for me, but for some reason Russian Yuuri's weird annoyed expressions are so adorable xD Another plus is that Japanese Yuuri is not a newbie like the main character of a sports anime often is. He's experienced, so whoever wins next week, it won't be stupid.

I wish this show wasn't so silly. (I'm fine with the butt shots though.)

Yurio seems awfully ambitious for someone only starting his senior career.

Oh what a great episode. Loving the OP & ED song so much.
Love how Victor is so full of energy & wants to help Yuri.
Cool how they incorporate Instagram into the anime.

The Ice Skating is so wonderful to watch.

Victor's Celebrity Status bringing in all the customers.
LOL that WOW! AMAZING!

Two Yuri's are better than one. Yurio is real hot headed.
Katsuki just wants to eat Pork Cutlet & win with Victor. OHH How sweet.

Let the training begin.
