Let's settle this http://www.strawpoll.me/11646130
>every boy is best boy
This is true.
There are no worst boys.
The impending, crushing victory of best boy says otherwise.
Every boy is best boy, but some boys are even best than others.
Some boys are more best than others.
Worse than omegaverse Hitler.
Except for Gook dog eater, he is worst boy.
I kind of wanted Victor to scold gay face for touching Piggy's ass.
I know, I love it. They get cuter and cuter each episode.
They're acting like a couple already.
And we still have 6 to go.
I keep telling myself not to expect it, but each week they make it more and more obvious.
If they fully commit I can't imagine how happy everyone will be.
Daily "Yuri!!! on Ice" anime discussion.
Medo-chan and Victor. I'm starting to envy her a lot.
yes but she had plentiful litters and alongside running the onsen Victor will breed his poodles on occasion because everyone's happy when there's puppies in the house and people come from all over to Hasetsu to buy the descendants of Makkachin.
>Yurio is actually his kid but he forgot.
I don't think Yuuri can lose another dog.
She doesn't have to worry about everyone knowing she's a weeb, since she's almost a GOAT female skater now.
No, happy Otabek is the best.
So he knocked up Fairy's mom when he was 12? You know they're Russian I buy it.
How do I stop this show from turning me into a homosexual?
I'm really anxious to see if Victor and Yuri's relationship will hold up after they aren't coach and student anymore. It seems like a lot of Yuri's character development and being close to one another comes from having Victor as his mentor. Will the feelings he thinks he has right now vanish when they arent working together anymore?
I never lost a pet 'cause I never had a pet to begin with, but it must be sad. I hope that your poodle can stay with you for a very long time, anon!
I'm worried about it too. I'm afraid they'll part ways after the GPF.
But what kind of feeling do you think they are feeling? Do you really think they are in love?
By the time that they are no longer working together they will be married though. Like Yuuri will adopt victor onto his family registry, they'll run the hotspring together and breed poodles.
In all honesty though not going my fanfic-y full homo route I don't know. Yuuri seems like someone who once attached continues to care about people despite distance. Victor is where my concern lays. He seems like the person who needs to be in proximity to friends and family or else the relationship slips.
I've never really thought about what will happen after GPF, but now I am it's making me depressed. God dammit, how did I get so invested in this series?
I never thought I would get anxious over a fictional couples future together. At least we're in the same boat, anon.
And even if he was what would be wrong with that? Plenty of people 23 are in good relationships with people 30. Plus an age gap like that gets you someone closer to settling down who has an established career yet they've still got a youthfulness to them.
Same. I'm trying to hope nothing, but every week it gets harder. Kubo and Yamamoto are playing with our hearts. If I get a heart attack and survive, I'm going to sue them.
It's killing me on this one more then with
free. That being said BaldFat isn't like my OTP or anything. I'm shipping everyone with everyone. But I'm worried about their relation with one another no matter if it's homo or not.
>had a beautiful arrangement of fish because I was so into marine biology

>finally after saving all my vidya money and mowing lawns I got a full array of the best freshwater fish I could, and a tank

>have to cover face with hands
>torn between laughing and being mortified
How did you all get through this? I hit the pause button five minutes ago and I can't bring myself to hit play again.
I'm concerned, but at least the ending kind of suggests they'll still be together by the next summer. I hope I'm right.
I know. This is why I fear pressing play.
For some reason when I saw "Intoxicated" I immediately thought of Britney Spears' "Toxic. I could probably suffer through that easier.
I am, I really am. The screencaps don't bother me but damn is it hard to watch it unfold.
The witch actually had me laughing with the backstory behind it. This.. not so much.
I want to tenderly love Piggy!
I'm so sorry for your loss, anon. I've got a tank as well and have had a lot of my favorite fish die over the past half year.
>Dalmation Molly who ruled the tank
>ate an entire strip of seaweed by himself
>whole strip was enough to feed the entire tank
>found him bloated and dead the next morning
>tfw I want a second season with Victor coming back for his final season but that implies him leaving for Russia and my BaldFat OTP being separated
As Yakov said, Victor might never come back after taking a season off. It's hard for skaters to maintain their level after a long time without skating competitively. Plus, Victor's getting old, and that matters too. Even if he's GOAT. just take Plushenko as an exemple, and, more recently, Mao Asada. She took a season off and now that she came back, she can't win shit.
Also Victor has been eating and drinking like a, well like an athlete let loose. He has maintained his figure sop far, but how long will that last if he eats hotpot all day every day.
Nah, he'll come back as a pro for the second season.
I bet my firstborn the first season will end with Victor being interviewed like in episode 1 and asked about his plans now that the GP is over. He'll say he's coming back for his last season and now the Yuri's will be his rivals.
LadyBoy/Phone is my OTP.
Oh I like that theory but it doesn't seem quite right still. Victor seems like the kind of person who like led everything to be easy for him I would imagine it would ever extend to competitions.
Yea, there's that. He acts such a way that I don't think he wants to come back.
Me too. He already won everything he could win, cannot surprise the public anymore and grew bored of it.
Even if he still trains, it's not enough. Sadly. Watch some figure skating competitions. Most of the skaters are young. It's a highly demanding sport, that wears out the body.
I want to comfort piggy tenderly and tell him I love him every day!
I want the piggy to fuck me.
>average looking guy
Piggy isn't average looking, shut up
This piggy right here?
If he didn't fall yet, he's falling, for sure.
Just finished watching the second episode
Why is this so good?
It doesn't matter why, it just is.
Kinda. He failed his last grand prix bc he wasn't exactly happy with himself, couldn't muster strength to fight despite his emotional problems. One of them being a fucking virgin, as we see on episode 4.
I want to break free from these threads but I'm too comfy to do so.
I'm glad it's doing so well. Anyway, which ranking in scores do you expect for the next episode? Who will advance?
I'm in love with Yuuri and I can't stop.
Threads became comfy incredibly fast, let's enjoy while we can
Only 6 weeks left
Another writefag here, give me the gist and I'l manage something. Not 10/10, but at least a solid 6.
It' gonna be this shit all over again, I can feel it.
Even worse because I see you faggots everyday
Writefag here. I pretty much live in these threads too. Every time I see it mentioned it makes me happy, but I also hear Victor saying "pressure?". It's still on 5k but I'm looking it over again now. I'll keep you up to date. I hope it doesn't disappoint in the end.
Yes I need more domestic shit. Like Yuri is so the kind of guy who who would easily settle into that kind of a domestic routine. Victor is getting older and I think he would like it especially since they could still travel around and have fun since they would be childless.
eveb though Yuuri seems like someone who'd like to have a kid around
I'm still waiting for Taco rapefic. I hope anon will deliver.
I keep wondering what I'm going to do when it's over.
It started out just being a fun thing, but it's pretty much become my anchor as of certain events we won't mention here on an anime board. Call me a faggot, but it's true. I don't know what I'll do without it and there's nothing else like it.
Don't belittle yourself like that, anon. I think a caught in the spur of the moment eros Yuuri fucking a willing Viktor is always a good place to start.
Thank you, just take your time.
Stop making me sad, I don't want to think about it. I never see anyone ever again after a fun show ends and when I do everyone is bitter and angry at something as if they stopped being able to enjoy little things in life.
I don't think I'm coming back from it. He's too damn cute.
>mobs on ice
Is this making history?
>over half way now
>still no victor back story
>still no fairy back story
>still no best boy
time is running out fast
I'm not going to lie, I felt the kind of embarrassment I used to feel when I was a kid riding the bus and reading a random magazine and suddenly there was a pinup of a very naked model for no reason and I was caught between wanting to stare at it but also quickly turning the page so that the person next to me wouldn't look at me funny. Except this time I didn't have anyone sitting next to me while watching the episode. Yeah. Anyway, keep going.
Got it, I think I can handle.
>I never see anyone ever again after a fun show ends
I like to imagine I always encounter the same anons, because we like the same things.
I always like to imagine how many anons are actually from the same threads I was a regular.
And I'd like to imagine talking to them in the future as well.
I love you faggots.
He's the OP pic anon.
i want some baldfat fluff slow burn fic pls deliver anon
Because his VA was in the studio recording for episode 8.
Best 2D boy ever. He's already my one true husbando.
>But to Yuuri it's not enough
How do you know this?
Yuri would be a terrible parent in my opinion. Victor would be better.
twitter, some person made them, took her 3 hours, then she ate them.
I didn't save her tweet, so, can't link you directly.
Yeah, I'll stop, I went with the flow, sorry sempai.
Yeah, I think Victor will continue to be a coach. He probably won't coach Yuuri for much longer either. It would be better to coach someone much younger who has a full career ahead of them.
Why is this show so good at getting people emotionally invested? There's been a really intense, positive response, to the point where it seems obsessive. Is this the power of giving a ship believable canon potential, or can we just thank Kubo and Sakamoto for being good at what they do regardless of how likely a homo end is?
I hope you're okay with sharing, anon.
Holy shit I didn't notice
Excellent news, thank you anon
>now you realized that Chris has been feeling on that perfect ass since Yuuri debuted as in juniors. Chris is so familiar with that plump ass that he can tell Yuuri lost weight.
Sometimes I feel like learning Japanese was a waste of time, and then I go on pixiv and there are 20+ pages of fanfiction with Yuuri as the top, and it was all worth it
Showing the pain/vulnerability of your main character right of the bat might not make the audience cry, but it will definitely get them invested. Pain is universal. Losing an important contest and making a fool of yourself in front of your crush are situations everybody can relate to. Anybody can sympathize with someone who's trying to recover from that.
He wouldn't be that bad at it. he's a sensitive guy I imagine he would be good at empathizing. Like from infancy to like four or five Yuuri's got it under control. At that point Victor woul be the better one for dealing with kids five to like twelve or thirteen, at that point it would be time for Yuuri to shine again.
It's just all-around good. The homo is good, the characters are fun and engaging, the premise is being utilized well, everything about it just comes together really nicely.
I think the cherry on top, and what ultimately really pulls the audience in, is that there's so much love poured into it. It's just really apparent somehow. You can see they're not phoning it in here, this is something the staff genuinely enjoys working on.
I don't get it
Can you repeat the question
Yuuri gets off on having what other people can't have.
Is this what heterosexual men do to each other?
I was a fan of Sakamoto's to begin with. Michiko to Hatchin is one of my top ten favorite anime. I was going to watch YOI regardless of content because she was the director. I'm also a shameless fujoshit so this show was even more up my alley.
Sakamoto and Kubo working together is great and even if we don't get a second season I would like to see what else they could make together.
I can't speak for others but personally I'm invested in Yuuri and Victor, not as a ship, but because their characters really got to me. Maybe because I relate with events that happened with them, I don't know but I'm really drown to those two characters. I'm always looking forward to what's going to happen to them next. But everything else is just the right amount too. Jokes I appreciate, storytelling that doesn't take itself too seriously but is serious enough as the plot requires it to, every single character is likeable, the music is fantastic, the designs are cute, the detail and in-universe stuff is interesting. I'm here for the main two but everything else is so cozy and fun I want to have the whole package, as opposed to other shows where I liked a couple of things but there were a lot of them that annoyed me and didn't allow me to fully enjoy myself. It's really fun and relaxed, the kind of show you watch at the end of the day when you get home and not feel angry or frustrated at the creators or something else in the story. You enjoy yourself while watching it so you want more of it.
You know I had been talking about this when the PVs and then episode 1 aired, but I swear to God Kubo must have come up with some sort of complex algorithm for crafting the most beautiful and charming anime boy in order to design Victor.
And I know I'm not the only one who, after viewing the first PV and only knowing the title of the show, thought he was some sort of suave princely butch a la Haruka Tenou or Yuu Kashima. We were honestly tricked by the title until further information was released. Quite a pity, honestly.
They know how to build great sexual tension. The last time this kind of sexual tension made me fap this much was Gankutsuou. I am pretty sure a majority of people who watched it wanted the Count to bust that jailbait boipussy open. Fucking Nakata and FukuJun did it on purpose too.
i was trying to remove but i guess is too hard for me after all. sorry, senpai.
Last day in China, Viktor and Yuuri get drunk as hell after Yuuri winning/passing to the next phase. They get to the hotel room and Viktor starts fucking Yuuri, but it was the wrong room and the skater/coach staying there was just having a shower.
I'd write it myself if english was my first language. Thanks for the offer, kind anon!
You spoke for me, at the very least.
It will sound corny but I think the key to YoI popularity is in the love everyone involved poured into this project. Despite the often lacking skating sequences, you can just tell from the way the characters behave like they're real people. I'm also particularly reponsive to the way Viktor seem to exsude charisma and pleasantness. He's like a ray of sunshine made into an anime character.
Hell last week I didn't even care about burgers electing literally Hitler, all I could think about was that it was YoI day.
i'm hyped for this episode even more than ep 7
I'm speculating that this will be Yuuri's last season in skating because of the content of his FS. It's an all encompassing piece about his career and if he won with it, it would be a very peaceful end to his career, that everything has come full circle and he is satisfied. At least that's only if he wins with it.
>It's really fun and relaxed, the kind of show you watch at the end of the day when you get home and not feel angry or frustrated at the creators or something else in the story
So true. It's really heart warming and feel good without being low on plot/development like a lot of feel good series. It reminds me of how I felt watching Barakamon, except I'm enjoying a cute homo couple instead of cute adult/child friendships.
Very true. It's kind of like a child, when you nurture it with true love and care it will show regardless of the flaws they might have. When the staff is having fun with their creation it's contagious, when they're unhappy that's contagious too. I'd say a lot of things went right with this but the main women behind it are definitely the key.
Who knows. A lot of what he said about it being his last season was when he was still pretty has no faith himself for the most part. I can see him having one more go if Victor stays as coach or Victor challenges him as a worthy rival.
Who knows? If Stay By My Side is a reflection of their relationship, Yuuri probably will go with Victor instead of Victor staying with Yuuri in Hasetsu.
If the magazines have anything to stay, we still don't know what is Victor's full reason why he decided to pick Yuuri as his protege.
Should we be worried?
It's this type of shit that makes you wish they had the proper budget and time to do the skating scene justice. I really hope they get to fix as much as they can in the BDs.
Everytime I hear complaints from the staff, it's almost always over they wish they can give the series better animation. The animation staff situation is really fucking borked but they are working through it because they believe in this series so much.
No, fuck that. Yuuri has something like a 106 in the SP. That's ludicrous. Javier had a 96.57 SP in France, Shouma had a 98.59 in Russia, and Patrick Chan had a goddamn 90.56 in Canada. Victor has turned Yuuri into a god.
>Patrick Chan wins
>Chan in from Canada
Emil will be best boy!
Yes, the summary said so, plus Ciao Ciao mentioned it too, it's pretty blatant foreshadowing and Yuuri's long due for some trouble after how well everything has been going. Victor's gonna fix it though, apparently.
Top 6 scores from the Rostelecom Cup and the other cups that require qualifying from the other tournaments like Cup of China and Skate America and Canada. I forget the other cups besides Rostelecom.
>Vicchan and Maccachin will never get to be cute poodle buddies
I will cry bitch tears if Victor skates to Stay By My Side for Yuuri and then they skate together. Also the OST has SBMS as a duet and it's the final track.
Hug me, anons.
Why did you mention this, anon? It would have been so cute.
>remember that mini doujin where Vicchan's ghost lead Victor and Makkachin to Yu-topia.
Is it Stay By My Side or Stay Close To Me?
And it's listed as the 1st track as a solo and as the last track as a duet.
Victor/Yuuri being pair skating faggots on ice for the final scene confirmed.
Thank you Jesus
Why you had to remind me of this doujin
This anime couldn't get any more fucking homo and I love it. Also, 6.5k of Stamina!Yuuri topping Viktor with fluffy interludes between rounds so far. It'll probably end up being about 8k.
>Victor skating Stay close To Me to Yuuri
>Possibly them skating to it as a pair
I don't know if we're being blessed or we're being set up for heartache.
>'Be By My Side Without Letting Go'.
Makes you feel lonely, doesn't it.
>'Be By My Side Without Letting Go'
Thanks, it's not like I needed a reason to cry or anything. Someone go ahead and post the translated lyrics to deliver the final blow.
I want to see them skate History Maker together but crash into each other causing serious injury for one or all of them.
Or Stay By My Side and Victor tries to lift Yuuri's fat ass but he throws his back out and they both fall on the ice breaking Yuuri's neck.
Was trying to figure out my suicide until I saw this
Stay By My Side
Sento una voce che piange lontano/I hear a voice crying far away
Anche tu sei stato forse abbandonato/Have you been abandoned as well?Orsù finisca presto questo calice di vino/Come now, let’s empty this glass of wine soon
Inizio a prepararmi/I’ll start getting ready
Adesso fa’ silenzio/Now be silent.
Con una spada vorrei tagliare/With a sword I wish I could cut
Quelle gole che cantano d'amore/Those throats singing about love
Vorrei serrar nel gelo le mani /I wish I could seal in the cold the hands
Che esprimono quei versi d'ardente passione/That portray those verses of burning passion
Questa storia che senso non ha/This story that makes no sense
Svanirà questa notte assieme alle stelle/Will vanish tonight along with the stars
Se potessi vederti/If I could see you
Dalla speranza nascerà/From hope
L’eternità/Eternity will be born

Non te ne andare/Don’t go
Ho paura di perderti/I’m afraid of losing you
Le tue mani, le tue gambe/Your hands, your legs
Le mie mani, le mie gambe/My hands, my legs
I battiti del cuore/The heartbeats
Si fondono tra loro/Are fusing together
Partiamo insieme/Let’s leave together
Ora sono pronto/Now I’m ready

seems a bit gay
We are all fat crying Yuuris with no Victors in the world.
Because it's very much one scene, one night. Viktor doesn't get out of it so easily as to take it in chapters. He unleashed the eros, you all wanted the eros, and you're gonna take it.
Dude. I've been there. I'm still here though. Stick with us.
I disagree. I mean, maybe that's the case but the boy was watching an idol of his, just like Yuuri and Victor. YOI is this short in full anime form. The taller guy even has the same hairstyle as Yuuri. I'm fucking sure there'll be a (homo) pair skating scene like that.
They both were in love with straight people. I don't know if Atsuko ended up miserable because the last we saw of her was before Michiko and Hatchin escaped and Michiko went to jail after she made sure Hatchin was safe, iirc. Oscar just disappeared after being thoroughly mindfucked by The Owl of Minerva.
>inb4 Yuuri or Victor go crazy and the other is straight as fuck
That is the face that is expressed in program. Yuuri makes a similar face too when he does the routine. The routine was supposed to be someone who is crying out for their loved one to come.
Now he's smiling
Stay Close to Me is such an emotional song. My chest hurts when I listen to it.
This, for fuck's sake. As much as I would like to see him skating again I wouldn't be able to live through a weakly animated scene though. Besides, the show focuses much more on Yuuri so I doubt it'll happen yet.
ann has had that shounen ai label for 4 days already, I though it was a troll edit but apparently not
Stay By My Side would make senses thematically, since the show starts with Victor skating his FP while Yuri is in Japan copying it. To have the show end with them finally skating the same thing together would be, poetry.
> listen the music
I can taste the pain in my heart
>a penis skate with Yuuri
