Loved it! Viktor is soooooo amazing (and an eye candy).
I hope we can see Yurio turning into a lovely character as the show progresses.

Does anyone know if the On Love: Agape and Eros are actual songs BECAUSE I LOVE IT BUT I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND IT ;_;

It's called "In regards to love - Eros" and "In regards to love - Agape", but they're only avaible on iTunes.
On youtube I found only short version.

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.

You have to bear through it~ I bet it will be gayer and gayer lol

And BTW the two Yuris somehow remind me to Deku and Kacchan lol

This show continues to be interesting. Bestboi Victor is stirring things up and I'm hyped for J!Yuri vs R!Yuri competition. The comedy is also great.

How did this show get even more awesome with only 2 episodes? I can't believe how invested I am....even though I know next to nothing about figure skating. Can't wait so see how the Yuuri and Yurio perform next episode! :D

Viktor roasted Japanese Yuri and his plus-sized belly.

Russian Yuri owns a black MCM, studded backpack. It's exactly the same designer backpack that I'm saving up for. Those backpacks are extremely popular in South Korea.

I still don't understand why a young 27-year-old champiom figure skater wants to train someone four years younger than him. Russian Yuri is such a stereotypical hothead and him kicking Japanese Yuri in front of those reporters should have disqualified him. Nothing makes sense and it seems all so wishy washy but despite it, this is still one of the better Anime series of this season.

Hype ruined for me. I don't enjoy threesomes/rivialys. (totally expected since its sports... My bad )
I am guessing that Yuuri will win since Yuri is pretty savage and would've took viktor back to Russia = /end of anime if he had won

Oh it was a fantastic episode. Yuri has now a big rival, another Yuri, Yurio. The skating part and the humor are very good and I like how Victor trains them. They will become polyvalent in their sport

The OP is the only thing I love about this show. People have hyped it up way too much, so my expectations feel even more let down.

This show is extremely fast paced, so much so that I'm finding it hard to enjoy. Hopefully it'll get better... and more sporty perhaps?

Great episode overall! I'm relatively new to watching ongoing anime (and just watch very few), but sports anime is still something I haven't picked up to watch even though I've wanted to.
So I started with this! Gotta say that because of being unfamiliar with the apparent (?) common BL vibes or manservice in sports anime, it throws me off a bit. Cause I didn't expect it at all xD I'm not a fujoshi, but can enjoy some shonen-ai, just do not like the "teasing", if its not actually going to be a thing. :/ and the manservice is distracting to me for the story. lol How do guys do it, while watching so many anime with bouncing boobs everywhere??
I'm like "Yes, Victor's speech is important! Oh look, Yurio's ass. Nice. No wait, the DIALOGUE. Oh Yuri's ass now, ok. But like, let me focus on the story! Oh GOD VICTOR'S ASS."

So yeah, I prob wouldnt have watched it if I waited till it finished airing, cause i'm too picky for anime, buuut since its ongoing and I can spare 20 minutes a week, i'll see how it goes! Maybe i'll learn to multi-task and enjoy both story + fanservice? Who knows.

You may think,errr...after summing up,it doesn't equal to 100%,yet because this show is trying to entertain us,while story is moving forward.Yuri on ice is following this golden ratio,that's why it's fabulous.

Apart from that,Victor seems to be a playful teacher,while he is very strict coach.Damm...They did so well on the ratio,it can't stop to amaze me,5/5

Not much skating this episode. I'm not surprised that the other Yuri is back - he admittedly hurts my score a bit because I think he's ear-gratingly obnoxious. Some of the background characters are the same and treat the main Yuri poorly.

The show as a whole is entertaining, and there were a few solid gags this episode (wasn't impressed by any of them in the first episode), but I'm still going to keep my score at 6 for now.

I enjoyed this episode. It's a bit hard for me to wait for a whole week but i still want to watch this.

Surprisingly, I'm not annoyed by the Rissian Yuri. He's ambitious and sees the other Yuri as an obstacle, that's all. I love competitions! It inspires you so much just to watch two talented people compete with each other. And I liked how Victor assigned them the opposite programs ^_^

Good animation and character designs are very lovely , but the only thing I dislike is those cheap facial expressions.. Can't stand how such visual breaks that beautiful face..

Fun how two Russian people who use Russian on their phones , still speak Japanese with each other. ( I know I know why )

I love how Yuri, Yuuri and Victor's personalities are so defined in the second episode already. Victor isn't as sweet and silly as he seems to be, but instead has a cocky arrogance befitting of a king in the ice skating world. I love how he used a gender-neuteral term when probing for Yuuri's past romance experiences. The twist at the end with the skating assignment was really surprising, and a so fitting of his character!

I love how, during his recaps, even if he’s talking about something really serious or upsetting, Yuri seems so damn happy, lol. Also, all this fat shaming is making me really uncomfortable and insecure.

I am writing this as I watch. Currently, Viktor is outside of Yuri’s room. I believe my exact words were “Ohmygodohmygodohmygod.” I am one to feel secondhand embarrassment, and I sense much is coming. Viktor’s already huge ego is going to explode. So far I do NOT like him. Reluctantly pressing “play” now.
Oh thank goodness. That was close, lol.

I love Yuuko and her kids. Viktor, on the other hand, I very much hate. I hope he becomes more bearable.

Does anyone know how long Victor was in Japan with Yuri K. before Yuri P. showed up?

I know it was long enough for Yuri is lose all the weight he gained, but was it only a few weeks or a couple months? He still seems nervous around Victor, but he seems used to his presence at this time in the show...

Another case of "reserved east" meets "liberated west".
I hope the series keeps maintaining this light tone while telling this "dream come true" story.

4/5 May the boys learn to rely on themselves.

I love how the social media is involved in this show.
You just cannot help posting the photos you love online even if you know it might cause you trouble.
As a side note, tiger sweatshirt is cool. I need to get myself one.

Both Agape & Eros sound quite nice. I’m a bit surprised that Victor assigned them the opposite music. But I kinda agree with him that it’s a good idea to perform the opposite of what people expect.

Not as good of an episode, frankly rather disappointing. The Russia's Yuri is too loud, doesn't really fit in the elegance of the show. His character is decent by itself though, and his rivalry with our MC Yuri may prove to be exciting.

I dislike the fangirls grab move by making Victor all smiley with an unnaturally small mouth, it's just cringe when I see a pretty boy acting all cute to grab the heart of fangirls. I hope it doesn't turn into just yet another fanservice show for the girls.

OKAY I'M DEFINITELY ON THAT VICTURI SHIP NOW, PEOPLE!! I was aware before I started watching this anime that the ship exists but it wasn't until this ep that I got sold (even though there was a hint hint to it at the ending of the first ep LOL).

Omg I'm also in love with the Yurio though!! Like, his determination to win is really getting to me! <3

I really love how both Yuri's have opposite requests for Victor on what they want if they win (I love Yurio's request for Victor to become his coach but my heart is beating fast at Yuri's request to just be able to eat pork cutlet bowls with Victor! SO CUTE!!)

Okay, I'm done fangirling...for now. ;)

But, aside from all these lovely ships, I think Victor's idea on making their song choice the opposite of their usual routine is a great idea because, if you think about it, the audience's surprised faces + being able to actually pull off the routine = hitting two birds with one stone!

5/5! :)
