I think the gradual baiting is to blame. Most yaoi baiting shows start with heavy bait and it tends to become stale. What Yaoi has done is slowly bait little by little and amp the yaoi levels gradually, culminating in a "marriage" "proposal" in today's episode.

Free did the same but the yaoibait wasn't nearly as heavy or blatant.

Long Riders is delayed until February probably due to Actas quality issues but I don't know if it comes close to the QUALITY in some of these YoI posts.

Because it's actually, unironically good. Sometimes it doesn't look nice animation-wise, but the characters are great and the direction is awesome as well.

But chances are that you won't even try to understand, so just tell yourself it's about fujo fanservice.

>>150676523
Well the parentheses aren't really necessary since it WAS a marriage proposal, straight up.

Victor says its an engagement ring, and they will marry after Yuri wins.

So its not standard fujo baiting, its straight up gay

honestly it isnt queer-baiting its legit gay. they said its a marriage proposal bc the characters in the anime legit said the rings were engagement rings. this show shows a healthy, pure and cute relationship between two men that isn't fetishized or queer-baited, they're just straight up in love

>>
>>150677843
Honestly, I just think Victor was joking with the proposal thing. Yuri intented to give the ring as a gift for all he's for him. Not one he mentioned marriage. Knowing Yuri he's just to dumb to realize what he did and the type of ring he bought.
>>
everything about YOI is so shallow that it's hard to take seriously. It's literally the ecchi harem equivalent of shounen ai. I guess it's fine for the girls to have their fun too. It's legit cringeworthy seeing the threads littered with 'I'm gay and...' or 'gay representation,' like how the male gaze is awful but the fujo goggles are unassailable.
>>
>>150676843
I mean I guess, but I don't see much appeal in it even after 10 episodes. I guess it's not my cup of tea.
>>
>>150678021
On the reciept for the rings, it explicitly says they are marriage rings.
He'd have to be a blind retard to not know what he was buying.

And I don't think Victor would be joking about it, especially since the episode is basically about how he had a crush on Yuri since the banquet Yuri got drunk at.
>>
>>150678166
What do you expect from a fanbase of whales and literal fudgepackers
>>
>>150678214
And thats fine, even if its more legitly gay than fujobait, its still got fujo elements to it.

And it IS pretty goddamn gay
>>
>>150678166
Harem? What? Idiot.
>>
>>150678166
How is it a harem at all? Nobody wants Yuri romantically aside from Victor.
>>
>>150678214
Its an anime about playing with and subverting fujobait tropes. If you don't watch a lot, or aren't that interested, it may not really work for you. Different strokes for different blokes.
>>
>>150678218
>He'd have to be a blind retard to not know what he was buying.
And he kind of is.

>especially since the episode is basically about how he had a crush on Yuri
Didn't really see it that way, we'll just have to way how it pans out. I honestly don't see an actual gay end to this. The yaoi elements all seem to be played just for fun and fanservice.
>>
>>150678309
>subverting fujobait tropes
Now that's a fucking top shelf meme. How in the literal fuck do you figure that?
>>
>>150678318
In the post credits scene, Victor clearly starts blushing from what Yuri said to him.

And he talks about how Yuri gave life and love to him.

I mean, I understand where you are coming from, most shows like this don't actually do anything beyond fujo pandering that goes nowhere, but I'm pretty sure this is the real deal.

Besides, they confirmed the kiss at least was canon on twitter.
>>
>>150678351
It literally no homos itself and then walks back into homo. This has been the entire fucking show. Did you even watch episode 10?

I wouldn't have any doubts if it was actually shown on screen.
>>
>>150678406
>calls 800euro wedding rings "lucky rings" with church bells in the background
>confirms to friends later they are engagement rings
The entire show has been YoI baiting and then following through. What is the point of them leaving doors open to no homo if they literally refuse to use them and shut them in the same episode, if not to poke fun at anime that do?
>>
>>150678488
You don't know what subversion means.
>>
>>150678517
I used the term losely. Thats why I said "playing around". The actual subversion was the Victor reveal this episode. That more of a BL trope subversion though.
>>
>>150678381
>no homo
i'm sorry, but that has never happened. if you interpreted differently, it's likely 'cuz ur a virgin that's never sucked a fat cock
>>
>>150678560
Well you said the anime is about subversion, which implies it's some kind of meta show, which it isn't.

When did I say "deconstruction"? This entire show has been making fun of fujobait tropes Kubo openly hates by twisting them. She literally tweeted she was tired of being forced to write romance like she didn't want to. Its not that much of a stretch.
>>
>>150678864
I wouldn't disagree, but if a show is so ambiguous that it treads the line between muh subversion and just actuallybeing exactly that for this long then you can probably be pretty sure.
>>
>>150678908
Okay, but having some subversive elements doesn't make it a show whose intention is subversion. Just because it pokes fun at fujobait sometimes doesn't mean it isn't fujobait.

>>
>>150679198
What's the defination of "fujobait" here? I'm taking it to mean "has homosexual teasing and then backs off" which YoI subverts. Are you taking fujobait to mean literally any show that appeals to fujos? Because that doesn't make any sense to me why would subversion be focused on a targeted demographic? I've never seen it used to refer to the audience before? Is your definition of a fujobait subversion a gay sports show appealing to otaku? How would that even work?
>>
>>150679277
What I'm saying is that having elements that subvert genre tropes don't make the show a subversive piece on the balance. It still essentially IS what it's trying to critique by doing what you mention. Another example this season would be Girlish Number, which pokes fun at a lot of industry tropes while still being the exact kind of show it pokes fun at sometimes.
>>
>>150679277
Pretty sure that anon is taking it as "it's not gay until we get a visible kiss/aishiterus, everything now is just teasing" which is kind of retarded. Fujobaiting exists to sell to fujos without ever having real gay so they can reach that demographic of girls who just like cute boys, but at this point the only people who are denying it's gay are fujos themselves. Putting on wedding rings in front of a church and commenting on getting engaged is viewed as gay by literally everyone else, the only reason they're holding out on more is to give us the final gay climax in the last episodes. It's not like Kubo or Yamamoto are afraid of gay characters either, both of Yamamoto's other directorial projects have gays and Kubo tweeted about how she's tired of bland straight romance.
>>
>>150679410
Making a "bait" show literally gay pretty solidly excludes it from being "bait". (Ive already said what trope I think its subverting). I think you're confused because you seem to think just because a piece appeals to the same audience as a piece with a trope its subverting, that its the same thing when in fact audience isn't relevant.
>>
I was surprised we could have a fun and comfy thread for ep.10's streaming without all that vain hate propaganda some like to spread from thread to thread, but now...

What exactly is your point here? Are you trying to say that YOI is a deconstruction or not?
>>
>>150679476
/a/ is not your hugbox
>>
>>150679413
If there taking it to mean that, why would they say that a kiss in the finale couldn't subvert the trope? I think anon is just confused on what subverting a trope means. Likely because fujobait has a double meaning- both to pander to fujos and to "bait" gay but not followthrough. The first is something impossible to subvert because its not a trope so much as an audience, the second is not.
>>
>>150679502
I'm trying to say that its a subversion and possibly a lighthearted rant on "fujobait" (I havent decided. I'll need to see the finale first) shows and that the idea that YoI has no meta elements is kind of silly.

It doesn't, even the author takes the time to tweet hints that support the fujos wildest dreams.

When the author herself says things like that, you know what it means.
>>
>>150679757
Author aside, I thought tonights episode was a very clear subversion. They specifically wrote themselves a way out of an engagement and decided to go through with it anyway. I also thought the nohomo proposal scene with the wedding bells was comedic (not in the laughing way, but in a satire way)

In yaoi's defense, anyone who has been watching anime for any amount of time knows that animating movement heavy shit like skating is going to be quality for the majority of it. They'll blow the budget on a decent OP/ED and making one or two of the more important skating sequences look good and the rest of it will look like shit.

as an aside this anime is GAY as fuck
I don't think I've ever seen any anime this gay

I guess there are still dumbfucks who thinks purchasing BDs of an original wouldn't help a studio. Regardless, from now on MAPPA would be recognized with a seal of success.
>>
>>150679277
>subverts
It that a new forced maymay? After 'deconstruction', we get 'subversion'? Because you certainly are repeating this word like a 5 years old who has learned a new word and likes the sound of his own voice.
>>
>>150679852
>blow the budget
Confirmed for not knowing how anime works.

It's quality because their schedule doesn't account for how long it takes to make fully animated skate sequences every episode. Early episodes have spent longer time in preproduction, and important sequences are specifically given more time or more skilled animators to have more impact. The OP in YoI's case was pretty much done by just one extremely skilled animator, which is somewhat common in anime (or at least have a separate visual director than the main series.)

MAPPA is still a young studio and YoI is basically a passion project that didn't have the time or people to bring the visuals to the vision they wanted.
>>
>>150679993
Why do you think its not subverting a classic fujobait trope?
>>
>>150680006
>The OP in YoI's case was pretty much done by just one extremely skilled animator
Didn't Park just do the roughs, with other people tie down the drawings for him?
>>
>>150679946
>I guess there are still dumbfucks who thinks purchasing BDs of an original wouldn't help a studio

Because it wouldn't? Unless you can prove otherwise, Manglobe did a few anime originals and they're kind of dead, SHAFT made one of the most successful anime originals with Madoka and they're still poor as shit. Mappa's only actual successful show in a sea of flops is YoI, that's not exactly the formula to be recognized as a successful studio.

You should read the thread anon. If you want to contribute to the dicussion, you should actually refute one of the arguments already being talked about. (Or bring up a new one if you have the mental capacity)
>>
>>150680087
Youve missed the point anon. Manglobe is dead because their original anime sold like shit. Its a risk/reward thing with originals. You lose a lot if they lose money and get a lot of they make money.
>>
>>150680087
SHAFT's madoka money is gone man. That was 5 years ago and madoka didnt spawn a huge franchise.
>>
>>150680136
Manglobe is dead because no one invested in them for new shows after Gangsta. The companies that funded Yuri on Ice were Avex Pictures and TV Asahi, they are the ones who will get the profit, not Mappa, they already got paid to do the show. That's how contractual jobs works.
>>
>>150680199
MAPPA is on the production committee so it'll likely get a cut of profits instead of a flat fee, but who knows how much that is. Avex is making more for sure because they took more risk.
>>
>>150679614
And we're supposed to care because....?

Can you explain how its not? Giving cues like its going to back off and "bait"(like typical fujobait shows) and then subverting the trope by actually following through is classic bait and switch subversion. Why do you think it's not?
>>
>>150680102
There's nothing to contribute to when it's obvious bullshit. That Anon needed to be called by his real name: pseudo (sidesholding) analyst.
>>
>>150676951
It's a fucking romance, complaining that it sells because people love the relationship dynamics is absurd considering how important they are to a good romance or character driven story. It's not even fanservice or bait at this point, it has an extremely significant romantic subplot which is central to the character development. It's only natural for it to be a huge factor in the sales, and it's not a bad thing considering how well it's done.

>>150680508
You've watched all of, what, 5 series then? Any other sports series would compensate for the lack of time by using stills and panning rather than actually animating it like YOI does. The animators just don't have the time to refine the art, but they're at least taking the time to draw movement instead of taking shortcuts.

There aren't clues that it's going to 'back' off. You forget Yuuri is Japanese. That's the way they react. 'I won't tell you I'm in love in you because it's not manly' type of males. They don't back off, they hide, but the feelings are the same. People totally forget it's not two Russians or Europeans we've got there.
Denying that the wedding rings have any real romantic meaning, is purely japanese.

That doesn't mean it hasn't subverted the baiting trope in general by making it canon though. The first 4 episode were pretty classic "fujobait" they subverted.
>>
>>150680664
Im comparing it to other works in its genre? What is your argument?
>>
>>150680508
I know I'm going to sound insulting, but as a fact: when you're a little older, like 40 for example, this looks like pure art comparing to what you've had to endure as a child.

At least there is an effort.

It's not rotoscoped. They hand drew over film for reference. But amazingly enough, a tiny studio has neither the time nor the budget to do a great job with something like 3-10 minutes of pure movement every episode.

I started watching it expecting an actual show about skating and character development and some mild, mild gay fanservice.

It's anime thread not game thread retard. Mikleo got nothing at the end of the anime.
>>
>>150692184
I told a guy to not waste his health over little things like this, if that's you then good for you dude.
>>150692402
It's the bad animation thread, read the OP.

Oh yeah she's massive alright.

>>150691953
Mik got ntr'd hard in the anime.

Literally only dumblr whores and Chaggy. So, all in all, only cancerous fucks.

Is it some kind of anti gay Christian camp?

How do people think Yuri!!! On Ice is unpopular when it not only has the highest projected sales of this season but is also well-loved by actual international competing ice skaters? Of course an anime good enough to charm major competitors of the actual sport would sell well.
>>
>>150692073
I thought people were crazed for Reigen not Mob.
>>
>>150693072
No one thinks it's unpopular, people think it's bad.
>>
>>150692698
>one of the fans
>one of the fans is also a figure skater which is the theme of the show

you're really grasping at stars here aren't you landwhale?
>>
>>150693072
Literally only nonverbals think its unpopular.
>>
>>150693167
Better than rezero
>>
>>150693266
Yeah, but that's a pretty low bar to get over.
>>
>>150693072
>shit on ice
>good
Are tumblrwhales this delusional?
>>
>>150693266
Nah Re Zero was better. Subaru, Rem and Ram actually had some depth. Here apart from Yuri(he is pretty bad too) everybody is pure shit.
>>
>>150693201
Oh sure, like sports anime that get endorsed by celebrity happen all the time. Why don't you name some since it's so unimpressive?

>>150693281
> calling others delusional when the post didn't even mention good, just popularity
reread it hetfag

>>150693420
Oy vey tumblrwhale, don't smash me with your landwhale body. I don't wanna die just yet lol.

>>150693420
>hetfag
I'm not even straight. Now fuck off you stupid tumblrwhale.

Long riders for sure. If your anime's final 2 episodes got delayed TIL FEBRUARY you know the studio is going through some shit.
>>
>>150685259
watch the show and stop echoing shitposters comments, retard.

The anime is not over, you idiot.
>>
>>150693420
Ice skaters are promoting it because it gave them free publicity.
>> calling others delusional when the post didn't even mention good, just popularity
Re:Zero is far more popular. So?
>>
>>150693664
Then don't get so confident retard
>>
I only like Yuri On Ice* because it's popular.

I would never like something that is unpopular. That is so lame. Imagine being caught having given likes on your twitter account for something that wasn't popular.

It would be so shameful.

*Next month, I'll be liking whatever is the most popular seasonal anime instead.

>>150693981
Almost as if the story is already written and fujo are the only fanbase Zestiria has left.
>>
>>150694733

>eh, it's blatant fujoshi pandering but I still watch it for the ice skating animation
>several episodes later

>>150693072
So do fujoshits believe SAO is an undisputed masterpiece?
>>
>>150693765
Rezero? More popular than Yuri on Ice? What world do you live in? ReZero will struggle to get 10k average.

Though again, everyone know YoI is fucking popular. No one is disputing that. It's quality is a different matter, however.
>>
>>150687406
Don't they stay together for eternity at the end of the game though? That's kinda gay.
>>
>>150697212
Is SAO beloved by major eSports competitors?
>>
>>150693562
But anon GnP is a masterpiece.
>>
Fujo were a mistake.

>>150683600
