I'm smelling gay undertones from it so I'll definitely watch it even if it turns out to be "not-so-gay after all."

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.


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

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.

"on Ice" might be ambiguous.

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.

Yuri ?! It should be yaoi because I don't see any girl
Did it cross your mind that maybe Yuri is a name? Like please.

Hey look, it's Shinichi Izumi's long lost gay little brother.

whether there's bl undertones or it's sports centric, i don't care, the animation is marvelous, the designs are stellar, and the cast looks great!

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.

0.
wtheck stride had next to 0 yaoi vibes...i can tell you right now there was only 2 (THREE, at best, but even so that's pushing it).
