Oh! Oh! I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but the bit where Victor asks Yuri if he's had a girlfriend is actually a mistranslation here: http://datboi707.tumblr.com/post/151727461842/okay-yall-listen-to-me-ill-make-it-short-so

I'm not sure if it was a conscious decision to use a gender neutral word (maybe so that they don't put off either audience) or if it just happened but I find it super exciting!!

This show's humor is really lousy. Nothing but wacky faces and characters acting silly in a normally serious situation. I understand the importance of levity in a product, but they try to be funny ALL THE TIME, never taking Yuri's situation seriously once.

Let me ask an important question: if nobody in this show takes the ice-skating seriously, why should I? Why should I care how the competition between the two Yuris turns out when clearly, it's nothing more than a friendly cock-fight where all that's at stake is whether someone cries in a comical fashion?

Got a bit scared when I saw the quality for some of the drawings during conversational scenes (especially the first confrontation between Yuuri and Yurio) but Yurio's huge kick and the small bit we saw of Viktor's skating gives me hope that it'll be okay.

Show's doing a nice job of setting up a cool dynamic between the three mains by introducing their defining character flaws (Yuuri's stage fright and comparative lack of innate talent, Yurio's dependency and slight inferiority-superiority complex, and Viktor's impulsiveness and perfectionism). It's cool. Viktor's also such a badass mentor. What brute honesty!

I'm sure that the fujobait will only get stronger as the series progresses. (This is okay.)

Yes I once personally was in love with someone who kinda used to be a fujo and was the exact opposite of all this, it was just to explain the genesis of the question (and for jk too), like "Hey isn't this anime insulting (part of) its audience?"
But thanks for your answers, I guess people have more interesting things to think about when watching Yuri. :p

Might be a little too soon to call it, considering it's only two episodes in but I feel like this is going to be one of my favourites for the season.

Will be interesting to see Yuri dance to 'Eros'.

Hopefully he wins and shows brat Yuri that he is a threat.

Loved this episode! I liked all the yaoi teasing there... I wish there's going to be more of it in the future as well. Even though this is not a gay series, I guess I can still gey my fill with these moments *nom nom nom nom.*

Otherwise, a wonderful episode - I love Victor's idea with regards to the two Yuri's skating programs... haha, he's a little bit evil himself, despite his ikemen appearance, isn't he? Got to love him, though, Victor is just too attractive and cool. I am really looking forward to Japanese Yuri's development... I want to see him shine. As far as Yurio (haha) is concerned, I guess I'm not rooting for him just as much, but then again, he's darn cute as well.

Certainly looking forward to the next episode.

AHHH I totally missed this one. I mean I heard the ”koibito” word, and I know what it means, but I was fooled by the translation (of ”girlfriend”) and didn't even think about it, darn, so THANK YOU, hahahha! <3
Well, Vic does ask Yuri whether there's a girl he likes (sukina onna no ko ga iru no, or smth like that, which translates to ”is there a girl you like?” )... but he asks it in a gay manner, so it's forgiven *evil, fujoshi laugh*

I've been a fujoshi for years and though I already lost interest and finally want to move on but nooope.

Thanks, Yuri on Ice.

I will eternally embrace Victor's butt and his gayness and die peacefully -w-

This episode in a nutshell
Helenus said:
A little linguistic note:

Don't be fooled by the English subtitles. When Yuri and Victor talk about 'girlfriends', Victor utters the word KOIBITO which translates as 'lovers' and can mean both sexes. I'm sure the most of viewers, who regularly watch (romance) anime noticed this. But I just wanted to point it out once again...

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° )
Yeah, I noticed that too.

Quite ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° ) indeed

Probably going to get lots of people disagreeing with me on this one, but the second episode wasn't as good as the first.
Plus, the animation was all derpy and low budget in some scenes compared to the beautiful animation from the first episode.
Though I'm guessing that the amount of fanservice we got compensates it... a bit.

i wanted to scream about how koibito is not a girlfriend but i see others did already.....as a someone who does translating,i can't accept when someone else half-asses their job in the name of heteronormativity.

anyway, why they have Viktor acting like an stereotypical anime American though......

Great episode. I love the depth of these characters. Everyone has a strength, weakness, and something motivating them. Sayo Yamamoto did a fantastic job balancing everything.

This is slowly turning into something not for me and i'm worried if the animation drops anymore because it's main redeeming factor in me watching this to muster through the not so great moments.


dislike these two with a burning passion but the set up was good

japanese yuri is the one i think is gay 100%, crushing on Victor since he was 10 years old, and "having no experience in love" until now.

Yaoi on ice indeed. Yaoi fanservice is so heavy here, you don't even need yaoi goggles on.


I really hope they wont make them stright in the end. Theres not enough quality anime about LGBT characters, and I dont mean boys love anime, with all the uke-seme bulsshit.

I know this anime can be good.. though the BL elements, just messes up my senses.. without those, I believe I would love this no doubt.. guess I'll give it more episodes to see if I can get used to it..


Just think that the characters are your friendly neightbourhood queers ;) This is not a boys love anime, the story is important, just the characters are gay/bi.

I'm really enjoying the show so far!! :) LOL at the suggestiveness from Victor... I love that there's English and Russian included. I'm looking forward to seeing how the two boys will perform their respective concepts! <33


I just adore how relaxed and serious Victor is. I can tell he'll be an awesome coach.

Yup, still loving this show. I really hope Yuri wins (because duh, i don't want pretty boy to leave and I also don't want him to randomly decide to stay anyway for whatever reason) and of course its an added bonus that Yurio will acknowledge him.

Yurio's fashion sense though xD And +10 for having a cat =D

I love Victor's poodle! This show is just too cute.

Totally looking forward to seeing Yuri do that Eros dance.

Yuri doesn't have a 2D spineless personality. That line where he thought "He's totally underestimating me" really surprised me. <3 I think he's my fave despite grinning over Viktor's flirting. :O

Saying that, I really appreciate how they're steeping this in a story base even with all the fanservice and comedy. I think it blends together really nicely. Because as much as I like the fun, men's figure skating is still my favorite real and competitive sport out there. I'm way more excited when I watch them skating more than anything. (a real pro skater choreographs <3333333)

Savage Victor is perfect.

Yurio is like a kitten who likes to imagine himself as a lion.

Love the comedy, can't wait for more. I'm in love with this show.

I love this episode a lot despite the lack of substantial skating, which I expect since I'm pretty sure there will not be much skating if it's not needed.

Viktor's personality is really savage but my favorite has got to be Russian Yuri/ Yurio (I still hate that it's his name that got changed for the sake of Japanese Yuri's titular main character). I'll call him Yuri and Japanese Yuri, Katsuki.

The moment he arrived was when the anime became instant gold for me, that sweatshirt scene and uploading it to Instagram was the best. <3 He reminds me of Bakugou, who I also love, a little bastard but with a steel heart/determination and pure talent!~ I actually wanted him to dance to Eros 'cause he'd really suit it, I bet. He's like a spoiled prince and his costume in that one competition was really beautiful on him. But Agape on him would be interesting, I like both version of the piece. Still, the title of the next episode based on the preview is, "I am eros and eros is me?" with both Yuri's saying it together so there might be a twist. Okay, I talked about him enough but really excited seeing his actual skating!~ I bet it'll be beautiful...

Amazing episode!
OMG, i just can't stop laughing when i see "sakting-otaku"
And Yuri, he's amazing and funny. I really appreciate his hard work and i was smiling like stupid when he said that thing about pork cutlets in the end of the episode.
I think that this anime is going to be one of my favourites although i watched only 2 epiodes by now.
I'm a huge fan of sports anime, so i'm going to enjoy the whole series for sure.
It's worth watching, so if you're an anime fan chek it out!

After watching the first episode, I was afraid that the gay and fanservice parts would distract from the story, possibly making the show hard to take seriously... but to be honest, after watching this episode I kind of wish Viktor and Yuri end up as a confirmed couple. It would be such a shame if the creators put so much effort into their relationship only to go "nah nvm they're all straight" at the end. Haven't seen any shounen-ai or yaoi label though so I guess it's not that likely.

Also, I really love how blunt and unforgiving Viktor can be :P makes him a bit more layered as a character. Switching around the choice of music for Yuri and Yurio was an interesting move, definitely looking forward to the showdown.

Actually, Victor said "partner" not girlfriend but the subbers are most likely heteronormativite and interpreted it that way

I'm so glad the animation quality didn't drop! That was my one concern with the first episode being so amazing. Less figure skating in this episode and more character development, which I am 100% on board with.
