PV looks nice and I'm digging that background music. But bishounen designed characters turn me off unless it's pure comedy. Then again if I dont give this a try, I would probably regret it.
so if this is just about ice skating, I'll watch. I just hope this isnt made of heavy drama,

The story
sees the title:Yuri on ice - its gonna be a harem story heh -_-
sees the poster: Are these males?
sees the pv - WTF
After watching Daeth parade- No this doesn't look gayish at all! Is this a reverse harem? Why aren't there any girls?
I thought it would be cool if Madhouse made an anime about figure skating...
sees the studio:Mappa...

Thought of Yuzuru Hanyu when I watched the PV.

Aw man, I expected a GL anime. So much for that.

But still, it looks like it'll be an incredible show, I'm definitely looking forward to it.

LOL, well said. We don't say anything when there are a lot of ecchi and harem shows and neither don't call female characters as "sluts" but when if there are any anime series for females guys are getting mad and turning into creepy butthurts and they're calling male characters as "fags", "gays" even if there are no BL elements. *sigh* I wish people can be more respectful...


I don't even know why I'm still trying to argue people on anime forums, people have always been like this.


wow, so many ppl getting butthurt for this. aside that, the trailer looks nice.

as a man, i don't see any problems with anime for females. in fact i enjoyed some of them and i love bishounen so much and prefers females from shoujo design instead of moe. i don't feels anything gays about it (unless it yaoi that we talked about).

sometimes fandom can bit greedy, especially when it comes to their favorites.

I love Japan so much right now


It's not even "yuri" but yuuri, and two of three characters are named Yuri/Yuuri (and Yuri is a very common name in Russian)

oh boy I love this thread, need more salt.

We don't know if target audience will be females, but I just love how a lot of guys cry about fanservice anime for female audience when there are shittons of romance/ecchi/harem stuff with more than enough fanservice. Double standards are real.

Since I'm not getting my yuri I'm renting the nearest rink and making this a thing.

And seriously the title's too perfect for it not be yuri.

trailer looks nice

Apr 1, 2016 9:57 AM by Loki-The-Fool

talk about phenomenal false advertising with that title, I actually thought for a second they were bluntly saying it was a GL anime about figure skating

but cute boys are fine too
in fact they're better than fine

Funny everyone being butthurt and betrayed over something silly. Like they didn't say it was going to be an lesbian or all female cast when they first announced it on Crunchyroll news it was just stated as a project. lol so quickly they forget that Yuri is a common name in both Russia and Japan and not solely an anime genre.

Well ya'll continue spewing salt everywhere I'll be enjoying my cheer leading and ice skating men.

Bait & switch, good one.
Cheerleading boys vs iceskating boys, not sure what to watch...
Staff looks awesome, Yamamoto + Miyamoto + Mappa + always quality when they spend time on research & location scouting.

you think all boys are perverts? The only harem I liked was twgok because it have interesting characters and nice plot + it don't have a lot of Echhi.
My favorite anime is snk that anime don't have any ecchi or pervert scene
Double standards? Lol is normal for a guy to hate shoujo or those fujobait trash


I'm a girl and SnK is my favourite anime, but that doesn't mean I'm not a pervert :P
I don't think there's any correlation between any of these. Also, I have a few guy friends who like shoujo sweet stuff that I don't care about.
