Stay Close to Me in the PV is performed at the GPF venue.
>what does it mean
"Hang on, hang on-- at the start of this teaser PV Yuuri and Victor are both performing 'Hanarezu ni soba ni ite' in different rinks -> Yuuri looks thin, so it's not Yuuri from the first episode. -> Victor has a pained expression on his face -> after the GPF they're physically apart now, but their hearts are always connected, and that's what 'hanarezu ni soba ni ite' is. I feel like I can't breathe just considering this
Emil is gonna be so cute! I'm excited!
PV scenes don't really reflect a series 100%, this trailer is very old. Usually stuff gets changed mid production or PVs are just made to show off.
Didn't Guanghong description turned out to be different from the series? He doesn't have freckles in the anime too.
Soon my dear friend! And that's a great fanart!
As I said in the last thread. In the series, Victor does this in Ice Castle Hasetsu, judging by the windows and it was snowing too.
The first PV is super old too.
People want to create drama too damn much.
They'll be separated after episode 9 and just reunited in the end, lots of phone sex.
On a side note, I think I like this idea because it'd build their characters and relationship even more.
Does anybody have the Gru/Victor edit saved? I need it for reasons
Do you mean this one?
More that Victor knows he's not right for Yuuri and is still in love with Chris and leaves his collection of skating outfits and heads back to Russia with Fairy. And a few years later, we see Yuuri look back in fondness with Yuuko by his side.
I take Yuuko back. Yuri ends up with Phichit.
Meanwhile, Leo and Guanghong are in happy relationship even though
Leo had raped Guanghong when they were younger because out of jealously over imagined Guanghong's feelings for Phichit
I thought it was Chris who rapes Guanghong while Guanghong calls out for his boyfriends (plural)
No Chris raped Guanghong in the restaurant bathroom and now he won't come out of the closet.
Not to defend Nakamurashit, but she does have couples that don't start from rape turns into love. But it's sad that her main couples are like that. Plus, she didn't write the side novels that >>150048137 mentioned.
Anon, Arashi was the punk who kept his lady until the end. You're thinking of Hiroyuki that Caroline ends up with.
sorry Paradise Kiss is my shit.
Not if you're a dissatisfied mother. They're great at murdering their kids. The tricky [art is getting away with it.
Still sad about this. Why would they cut it?
why the fuck isn't it called "yaoi on ice"?
They make the dog as cute as possible to rip our hearts out, don't they? We didn't even know Vicchan and I felt devastated. Imagine how Victor would feel if anything happened to his dog.
Anon. If we believe hard enough there will be puppies not a death. We've already had one dead dog in this series. Also when poodles get sick and start to go you have a warning of a few months at least, if it's just from age it's even longer. Poodles tend to have hip problems and you can tell that age is really getting to them when they can't really move around anymore and have trouble even just sitting. I believe Makkachin will be Ok and you should believe too.
And especially for you.
>not partnering thai with best boy
The anime didn't really touch on it so that's probably why it went over your head.
This past week I saw a lot of lewd ones (like this) of these two on twitter, it made me feel funny.
Open your heart anon.
and pic related: @kyu_717
Phichit represents transnational inclusiveness, anon!
>insane Korean fangirls kidnapping and torturing Phichit
he's obviously a
degenerate sex addictanon.
i originally started posting worst korea as a joke but now
I think he's my most anticipated for episode 8
I know. I am hoping to change that today or tomorrow. I've got Victor and Yuuri
double teamingChristophe half finished. I was trying to use AO3 for reference but it was so disappointing.
Because they shallowly look cute together.
Both pairings are based on character profiles. Guanghong's said he "yearns for his friend Phichit a little" and Emil's states that he's Michele's henchman.
Emil and Michele's friendship seems a lot more likely to have made it to the final draft though since they're pictured together in that BD extra.
I have to say these are my favourite keychains thus far.
too bad I already preordered a million fucking keychains, MAPPA has turned me into a buyfag
threw together a few different polls that have gone on for the past few weeks.
>the episode 1 prediction of 'how will YOI end'
Only tumblrtards complain about it being 'abusive' and 'unhealthy'. 99% of the time Yuuri's possessiveness amounts to wanting Victor to watch him skate and be with him, exactly what a coach (and a boyfriend) is supposed to do. It's phrased in a strongly possessive way because people find that sexy, but in reality it doesn't affect the way he treats him.
>Yuuri being so possessive is not a good thing.
That's not correct at all. It actually means that Yuuri is growing confident than anything. He knows full well Victor chose him, he just wanted to show off. That's part of Yuuri's character development.
Pretty much. Not to mention he performed Eros specifically for Victor, so of course he doesn't want Victor to take his eyes off him when he's out there skating it. Hell, Victor even said to skate to seduce him.
I think rather than the malicious sort of possessiveness or jealousy, this is Yuuri learning to be unapologetic about his desires. He's skating for Victor, he has feelings for Victor. Part of having confidence in himself is not being bashful about the way he feels.
And like you said, it's also pretty hot.
It's not perfect but Yuri's possessiveness has not led to anything disastrous yet, but Victor is improving his relations with others like the time he showed Yuri he was being an ass to Minami.
Kubo's got pretty good sense, I can't picture it ever becoming a real issue. Yuuri is and will likely remain cute-jealous, not "I'm going to read your texts while you're in the shower to make sure you're not cheating on me with that Swiss slut" jealous.
Yuuri's only ever been jealous in a fair way that motivates him to get Victor's attention by improving himself. And it's only ever been an envy thing (wanting something someone else has, as opposed to wanting to keep something to yourself). He was jealous of Yurio being comfortable with Victor, but he didn't especially want to take Victor away from him. He just wanted to be like that around Victor too.
It would be easy to develop it into real relationship jealousy, especially if they wanted to portray it in a romantic way, but I think they're avoiding cliches like that (judging by how they avoid the healing kiss cliche).
im going to just kill myself right motherfucking now
Are they trying to kill us before the episode? These are way too powerful.
Wow, I actually got a little bit mad for a minute there.
I saw people in some earlier thread think that Yuuri went to university in Detroit, but that is wrong, the Japanese lines (in that skating profile screencap that wasn't translated) state that he enrolled Japanese uni and suspended his studies. This is a common practise among Japanese athletes.
>that shingeki poster in the background
Are /snk/fags and /yoi/fags just fated to be together?
Shh, accept it.
I want him to buttfuck me. Raw. With no lube.
That's not me, that's another fag.
How do those post even start shit? Yuuri isn't fat beyond the first 2 episodes at his lowest point so western fujos wishing he stayed obese despite him being a professional athlete are delusional.
I don't see how this is starting shit unless you're offended about your own weight.
Based Animate. It's great to see guys love this show too.
>nicely framed 15 year old butt
It even makes a heartshape upside down.
I thought Yuuri was supposed to have the best supple butt, and he knows it apparently. Do you think he got groped a lot it Detroit?
I just mad that they are trying to find fatphobia where is no one. Yakov is fat, but he is treated with respect. It's ok for coaches, but athletes should be fit, if you chose this profession, you have to be in shape.
>thai laughing as he takes his coaches dick
what the official art did not show
I don't want this, stop.
I don't need this, I don't want to search Ciao Ciao's tag to see Phichit slutting it up even more. I know he's a slut but I don't want to see Ciao Ciao's dick.
>stiff, devoutly Catholic Italian gets their world rocked by a free-spirited Thaislut
I love it
Every man is a little girl on the inside.
>not wanting to see Ciao Ciao's long thick dick disappearing into Thai's boypussy
>not wanting to see Ciao Ciao's desperate efforts not to thrust
>not wanting to see Thai laugh and taunt as he slides up and down that cock
>not wanting to see Ciao Ciao lose the battle and start pounding hard
Yes, they all like Russian little girls.
He wouldn't have graduated at 23 if that was true. We know the he was in Detriot since he was 18 and how the Japanese school year is set up, he wouldn't be able to finish. You can be enrolled in a university and earn your credits abroad. However, it does mean that Yuuri did take a break in studies (why he graduated at 23 instead of 22).
BUT YOU ALWAYS MAKE ME SO BREATHLESS
>Pichit: Yuuri and Victor kissed despite only winning Silver.
>Why didn't ChaoChao kiss me also?
>Chao: It's their own, while there's mine
[don't know how to correctly translate this but I'm guessing VicYuu has their approach and coach has his own]
*stares at Chao*
>Pichit: I don't mind..doing it myself
>There's no return if a gay rumor catches up!
Phichit isn't a slut, please everyone stop, this is wrong and bad. He's a good boy. Maybe not entirely a virgin, but a good boy.
>implying Pitchit hasn't fucked him already
I need a Sotsugyousei kind sex scene.
>Victor teaching Yuri how to leave lovemarks
>Victor accidently cumming on Yuri's face and glasses
Whenever anyone brings up the possibility of a sex scene I think of that fucking webm of that girl who looks like Madoka's mom obviously sucking dick, but the dicks are clear and iridescent so somehow this was okay for TV anime.
They keep announcing all this new merch that is all Makkachin themed, there is no way they're killing this dog.
Translator anon, if you can translate this too
They aren't going to kill Makkachin. It's gonna be like
>Makkachin gets sick after stealing all those steam buns
>Victor torn between staying with Yuuri and going to Japan
>Yuuri telling Victor about his own dog that died during his absence and how he never forgave himself for not being there bla bla
>Victor then going back to Japan in Ep 9 to be with Makkachin who will be fine in the end
I don't know moon, but it's only two pages. The rest is unrelated comics so it's likely just a preview or snippet.
platonic chapstick application
>The thing that I admire about works of fiction about sports is that they have really deep bonds between athletes that are different from romantic feelings
>different from romantic feelings
does this mean they're not really together? i feel like im reading this quote differently from everyone else
>The thing that I admire about works of fiction about sports is that they have really deep bonds between athletes that are different from romantic feelings. I wanted to write respectfully about that world of theirs that's totally beyond my reach. The general outlines for the story were all finished last year, but as I fleshed out the drafts, the characters took on a life of their own much more than I expected, and I got the feeling things were just starting to move where the characters wanted it to go! A phenomenon occurred where the lines between reality and the will of the characters blurred, and when I talked with the director, Yamamoto, about it, we were like, "Well, we're not drawing the story at this point. This is just what the characters want, so it can't be helped!" (laughs)
Because you didn't read the entire thing, she then proceeds to say that she wanted to show that but in the end just went by what the characters would want instead or something like that.
Stories about "I want a lover" and "I want to marry" don't interest me all that much. If straight relationships (danjo no renai) already flood the media, there shouldn't be a problem if I don't focus on one...I just want to depict a healthy, deep relationship, and I don't feel like using a straight relationship is necessary. That's something you'll understand when you see it. That is all.
An alt. translation.
As I heard it: She's saying how she doesn't like stories solely focused on getting a lover or getting married (I think she's refering to stuff like romcoms, stories where the characters only care about love and have little goals outside of that). That if she wants to write about a deeper relationship, since the market's already flooded with straight relationships, it shouldn't matter if the relationship isn't straight when it depicts the same thing.
>tfw when you are a russian orphan who doesn't have a family
Stop saying Victor or Makkachin are going to die, the author already denied anything like that is going to happen.
tfw had wednesday off but days got switched because shipment is late. wagecuck life did it again REEEEEE
sorry to the anon a couple threads ago who wanted live caps. i can no longer provide.
T is for Toyonaga and U is for Uchiyama.
>—How do Yuri and Yurio feel about each other?
>T: I don’t think Yuri thinks that much about Yurio…
>U: He doesn’t look like he cares a lot about him.
>T: Yeah, it looks like he doesn’t really think anything. He has stronger feelings regarding the fact that Victor came to his place. Yurio feels that Yuri stole Victor from him so of course he lashes out at him continuously. As for Yuri, he’s like “there’s no point in taking it out on me..”. In the end it’s not like he personally asked Victor to come there.
>U: I think that Yurio is profoundly convinced that Victor was supposed to become someone that would greatly influence him, and that he was stolen from him. He is also nervous because he wants to keep up his good results from the junior era and he fears that if he doesn’t start properly he will lose the best period for an athlete. He is also afraid that if Yuri Katsuki blossoms he might become an amazing athlete. It’s for all these reasons that he is determined to pull apart Yuri and Victor. That’s how I picture him when I play him.
I thought both seiyuu said on the radio show their favourite is Victor but they probably like the whole cast.
>—Who is your favorite character?
>T: I like Popovich, absolutely! I really want you to look forward to his spirit (LOL).
>U: I’m sure people will love his character. (Wataru) Hatano-san did a good job.
>T: Yes! He’s really pitiful, but when you see that from the outside it’s kind of funny! Mind, I’m not talking bad about him, but isn’t it true that sometimes people who are seriously sad, surprised or scared look a bit funny seen from an external point of view?
>U: Depending on the point of view the same thing can feel like either a comedy or a tragedy.
>T: He’s the perfect embodiment of that. You can completely understand his feelings, but he’s still funny.
>U: I like Kenjiro Minami quite a lot. He looks up to Yuri, right? I really liked how he shaked Yuri up when he was feeling embarassed about his past performances.
>T: To Minami-kun Yuri was probably the same as what Victor was to Yuri.
>—Lastly, please leave a message for our readers!
>T: What is interesting about this series is that the meaning of “growing up” is a bit different than in most others. Yuri-kun already has skills, so it doesn’t really feel like he’s “growing”… more like that Victor is opening doors for him that he wasn’t able to open before. When he’s not performing he still is his usual meek self, so his original personality does not really change, but by being with Victor he’s influenced by him little by little. I think you are all cheering on the GP series of the real world, but in the meantime the GP series in the anime is also getting to its most interesting part and the China tournament is about to end.
>U: Yurio is waiting for you in the Russia tournament coming next.
>T: Yeah. There will finally be the confrontation with Yurio. Stay tuned to see how they will end up eventually. In the next episode, ep. 7, my favorite guy Popovich is going to show an amazing performance (LOL), enjoy that and the rest of the series too!
>U: We are going to see lots of characters with varied personalities, coming from different countries and grown up in different conditions. This series is an original anime, so actually we’re also very excited when doing recordings because not even we know what’s going to happen in the long run. I hope that you can feel the same while watching. Be sure to follow the series until the end!
>T: …Actually, I heard how it ends~… from Kubo-san.
>U: I don’t think you should have.
>T: It’s not how you think! I couldn’t help it… She got drunk at a dinner meeting and just let it slip out (LOL).
>U: Don’t make her drink! (LOL)
I am laughing so hard, even Ucchi didn't like we didn't see more of Yurio during the Canada event.
>—After the confrontation, Yurio returns to Russia and starts training more passionately than before.
>U: Yes, that moment marks a new start for him, together with the arrival of his new choreographer Lilia. Too bad that the story progresses from Yuri’s point of view, so we don’t get to see much of what happened to Yurio afterwards…
>—I see. Yuri obtains good results in the “Chu-Shikoku-Kyushu Regional Tournament” and then breaks his own personal best score with his short program at the Grand Prix Series’ China Tournament.
>U: Meanwhile, the fact that the Canada Tournament in which Yurio also participated was won by J.J. (Jean-Jacques Leroy) is explained with a simple narration part (LOL).
>—Still, the Canada Tournament was also his first appearance in a senior tournament, so we could say that he did a splendid debut considering that he obtained the silver medal right away.
>U: Yeah, he did. He was on the podium and got great results! But he didn’t have any contact with Yuri or Victor at all after that.
>T: It looks like the two of them aren’t really that concerned about him.
>U: Well, of course I guess they are both focused on the tournament they are participating in.
>T: And at the same time, Yurio, in a land faraway, looks at the news and spits out an angry “you’ll see, you damn pig!”. (LOL)
>U: Indeed. Sad story…
Overall, Sotsugyousei is the way to go, but showing actual cum is a step too far for this show. Look at Chris. Jizzing should be heard and not seen.
Can you imagine the shitstorm that would ensue if we saw cum? I feel like Kubo is enough of a madman to do it but she probably wants to keep it (relatively) classy where Yuuri and Victor are concerned
I think she wants to keep it classy too. I doubt they'd even do a suggestive bait-and-switch with sauce on someone's face. It's going to be chaste, romanchikku, and pure.
Only Victor and Yuuri are paired off in this show in a serious way. The rest have pairs here and there but I get that you mean he is lonely and doesn't have someone beside him? Because that's what makes me sad. I want to see him have a friend. I don't really care to ship him. Happens or not, I am fine either way.
Please Kubo give Fairy a friend. He's so lonely, it's not fair. Even the Canadian will suffice.
I think they are buddies, have fun together at times because they are fellow skaters under the same coach but I don't feel friendship so far. I hope we see more scenes of them together for my opinion to change.
>T: Yuri will also have new worries, and something will happen to Victor too…… You can keep this in the corner of your mind when you watch. I don’t really want to tell you exactly what to pay attention to.
>T: Yuri will also have new worries, and something will happen to Victor too……
She would probably tell us to pay attention to doggo
Since she says its something you have to pay attention to notice it probably won't be anything big. Since its the first time Victor returns to Russia in almost a year Mila might ask him when he's coming back for good - Yuri will hear this and get anxious about the future. Something small like that.
unrelated to the new episode but i can't stop listening to agape
why did fairy get blessed with the best music?
this bitch is funny
no translations as far as I know
i dont think this is russian due to how lightly a lot of the words are being pronounced and rolled off the tongue
sounds like swedish to me
the bulk of legible words sound latin, but the tone of the song and some of what my ears are catching sounds swedish
probably AotS because so many people are watching it vs the other shows
DENYING VICTOR'S DEATH WAS A RUSE
IT'S HAPPENING AFTER ALL
All russians are pretty little girls, anon.
On a somewhat related note, l wish we could see more of Georgi off the rink. He seems pretty chill.
It's impossible for me to hear this song without remembering of their kiss.
>Yuri will have new worries
He'll have to decide which pants make his ass look better for date night with Viktor.
>something will happen to Viktor
he will lose his favourite tie right before the date
You will not harass me, MAPPA. Comfy until death
