Believe in Yuuri, anons! He'll clinch the gold medal for sure!
Patrick Chan is a complete asshole, actually worse than JJ. Just google the guy, he is a pretentious cunt who when he loses, instead of owning up to it will diss everyone from his competitors to the judging system. For years, he got favored by judges for god knows what reason because 'muh beautiful edges' but thank God Yuzuru arrived and blew him out of the fucking window since the GPF, Olympics and Worlds 2014 and he fucked off for a while after that. Too bad his rat ass is back.
How do I become a fairy so I can get a hot Kazakh boyfriend?
Do you have angelic features, a BMI below 20 and have you shaved your legs?
Which blau Victor is your favorite?
I'm starting to feel bad for JJ, honestly.
>Victor barely knows who he is
>Otabek rejects him
>His peers leave as soon as he shows up
It seems like he's genuinely trying but failing to make friends with the skaters because he's so used to having his ego stroked. It's conceivable that he thinks bullying fairy is just friendly hazing too.

It's weird looking back at Blau's older stuff
Yeah, I feel ambiguous about him.He's a narcissist laking some serious self awarenes & humility, I dislike him for that but also pity him. He's not really a bad guy just annoying as hell
If Yuuri wins gold, will he get the chance to know that Viktor wasn't gonna leave him behind? Tho I this point that's probably pointless seeing they have rings.
If Yurio wins above Yuuri, he will get stuck in his current mentality or even become worse.
If JJ wins gold he will become an insuferable fuck, more than he already is.
I feel Otabek, Chris or Phichit are gonna win gold.

Food poison of love Viktor
He was presented in an annoying as fuck way and the writers went out of the way to make sure we know how obnoxious he is. However, no character is actually "bad" in this show, and
>all boys are best boys
has been a thing for a while, so I'm waiting on his redemption (scene?) for now.
Do not worry my sperglord friendo, the real fujos fucked off to some other sekrit club. It will be much calmer here from now on.
I'm still waiting for the baldfat skinhead attack fic
We're doing both, sorry to burst your bubble anon.
I want Viktor and yuuri to experience Japanese street fashion at least once
Which style do you think they will pick up? I'm betting visual kei for Viktor and Yuuri will just go full Nomura
I didn't know anything about Patrick but now it makes sense that (even if they're just loosely based in real skaters) JJ is worst boy and he might not redeem himself at the end.
Victor needs to tell Yuuri straight out how much he's done for him, I'm not sure Yuuri realizes just how much of an impact he's had on his life. That life and love stuff needs to be spelled out.
>visual kei for Viktor
Anon, pls. Only Nips can pull off that look past 25 and not look completely retarded. There are plenty of Nip casual wears that would work well for Victor.
let me lay this out one last time before I give up on this useless debate.
Main shopping street in barcelona --> high end name brand jewelry shops
The one linked before was very thin - too thin for what we see on baldfats' hands. The width of the ring is shown to be about half the length of Yurio's fingernail.
Men's gold wedding rings that looks somewhat wide on both victor and yuri's fingers, I estimate probably at least 3mm.
let's use Tiffany & co in spain for an example :
$1,000 eu for one yellow gold ring
ok how about Cartier?
Also, the rings were front and center when yuri walked in. That's where jewelers keep the high ticket items. If Yuri found some bargain 150 eu rings they would have been in a fucking corner.
I can totally buy the idea that yuri bought each ring for ~700 eu. What I'm not willing to budge on is the idea that he got two for that price. He had to put them on a fucking payment plan for chrissake
It's obvious he's a sheltered kid who has helicopter parents who always considered him a special snowflake. The other skaters ignoring him is good, he needs to question why nobody outside of his fangirls like him.
Post yfw Yuri ends up breaking the world record.
>wanting this miracle of the universe to ever look bad
Anon you don't see it? The more retarded, the more moe. Nothing can go wrong with Viktor.
He's a piece of shit. Standing there complaining that the quality of the skating has gone down with additional quads, when Yuzu and Javier are making them looks integrated and glorious. He's just jealous because he doesn't want to improve.
I also really resent the fact he's currently in second place at the GPF.
Fujo detectives on the case. Episode 11 preview with Makkachin is a flashback to Moscow.
posted two threads ago: https://yoi-topia.tumblr.com/post/154198973506/next-episode-preview
Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg
>The State Hermitage Museum is a museum of art and culture in Saint Petersburg, Russia. One of the largest and oldest museums in the world, it was founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great and has been open to the public since 1852.
This is so fucking disrespectful towards Yuzu and Javier. No one watching their performances could deny they are the whole package. Trying to paint his competition as just jumpers was a new low even for him. I also resent him getting 2nd place in Marseille. This cunt must have some strong sponsors behind the scenes.
I bet it's also because he's not part of the Orser clique. (Also he must have been a nightmare to work with, his coach quit right before the season started).
If he wins the GPF I will be legitimately livid.
What was Victor like growing up? There's no way he wasn't bullied every single day - he probably carried himself in a really effeminate way since he was young, and Russians don't take kindly to that at all.
I bet the tragic backstory will mirror Yuri's, so like in episode 2 where they tell Victor that Yuri was never very good at making friends, so he had a lot of time to practice, that'll be what happened to Victor also.
>Magic spell to turn a piggy into a prince
It makes me giggle that Yuri and Victor's VAs get along really well, sit really close and have a lot of chemistry, while Yurio's is like "these assholes".
How very in character.
it is but I can't find prices on their website or wedding rings in general. it's a terrible website. Also, the script is different so I'm wondering if they're referencing two jewelers, one by the name and another by the font
If you go to the
datalounge, you'll find a lot of interesting gossip and in depth discussion about figure skaters and they described the difference between the place where Javi and Yuzu both train which is like a family where everyone trains together with everyone getting along and cheering each other during competitions, with Patrick who basically has a whole rink and team dedicated to his every whim. Plenty of other interesting stuff about the Canadian skating federation and how homophobic they are.
How about you stop being so autistic over a receipt that's only visible for one second and focus on everything else, that is to say, the whole goddamn episode?
Victor asks Yuuri if he wants to buy something. This means Yuuri didn't buy anything until that point.
After Yuuri loses Victor's bag they accidentally end up in that market area. The trip there wasn't planned.
Yuuri is looking for something, searching the stands and shops. He blushes at one in particular and dashes to it. He just had an idea. Again, this means he wasn't secretly planning it.
He reveals he always wanted a lucky charm for himself but and also wanted to give Victor something. He explains it's meant to give him good luck at the final - he's talking about his own ring - and to thank Victor for everything - he's talking about Victor's ring.
It is never shown that Victor bought a ring.
Victor and Yuuri are wearing the exact same ring model. This means that Victor would have to buy a ring exactly identical to the one Yuuri bought while he wasn't looking. If that really happened they would have mentioned how much of a coincidence that was afterwards when they were showing them off.
Jesus. Why is this even a debate?
I blame Victor for this.
It's pretty much impossible for it not to be a flashback since Makkachin is there. I'm glad, really want to know about his life pre-Piggy.
I kind of agree to be honest. From a layman's, audience perspective, there's not much of a difference visually between a triple and quad. I know intellectually how difficult quads are, but they don't make me enjoy watching it more. I think jumps in general make the programs more tense and break up the flow, so I don't really enjoy them as much as the rest. But I'm the sort who's more into it for the performance than the athleticism.
I want to visit both Barcelona and Almaty thanks to this show.
What you said, not necessarily expecting the biggest sob story like he was an orphan but it's clear he was isolated, he admitted that much this episode and him being this feminine probably didn't help.
>you weren't there to protect his smile
I'll have a look. I get why people are so enamoured by Yuzu and Javi, because they're so obviously close rink mates and friends who are there to hold each other up. Patrick behaves like a megalomaniac child who is pissy at the world because he threw out his toys.
I don't know why you're arguing any of these points as I'm in complete agreement with them. Yuri bought both the rings. But the receipt shows that his purchase was only ~700 euro. The whole discussion was if that price was too low for both rings to be purchased together.
I get where you're coming from but figure skating is quite technical and really when you get to the free skate it's quite a bit about endurance too. It's only natural that athletes would want to keep pushing the sport further.
There's other forms of skating that are better suited to performances.
As expected of Light-Rainbow.
It's probably like ballerinas, he must have spent less time at school than the normal kids, like only the morning, and every afternoon he trained, or he went to a special school for kids who are definitely going to compete and train very often.
It's a great city if you love art. All this modernisme shit everywhere that's nothing like anything you've seen plus loads of regular old spanish architecture which I love too.
Is this JJ and his girlfriend? They've been together for longer than I would have thought.
Except that's not the case with the top skaters like Yuzuru against whom he is competing. Yuzuru integrates his jumps perfectly with finely crafted footwork and very little preparation and even Orser commented how Yuzuru is completely attune to the music and will go for musical scores that fit his jumps. Patrick is just bitter because he personally can't do both. You can't fucking watch Yuzu's LP this year or his LP and SP last year and think he is only jumping. That's being dishonest. When Yuzu loses, he doesn't diss the system or other skaters, he focuses on himself and the reasons why he lost. Patrick is beyond pathetic in his vindication. Also, his whole passive aggressive post on instagram after Yuzu had hurt him unwittingly during warm up. That was also low.
ended up leaving for a bit, but i wanted to reply to this since there seems to be a misunderstanding:
after the last episode airs, that is the first mark of when a general will be going downhill. that is because there will be no new content. inevitably, it'll turn into the SnK or Free! threads where it's all just shitposting at some point.
optionally, a few anons opted to make a discord server where the discussion will continue hopefully alike the threads, and just fun posting and maybe even more comfy posting in the discord server. so we didn't have to deal with shitposters or the threads being banned because a lack of reason to make a general for an anime with no new content.
yes, the problem of recognition and identities is there, but if the community that originates from making sure no one blogposts and it stays 100% anonymous at all times can't just self-manage nametags, then it'll just die out on it's own.
its just an option.
>BikeFairy made real
>China/Thai resurrected while at the same time juggling China/Taco
How do our overladies do it?
I've seen dozens of posts claiming Yuuri only bought one ring and Victor bought the other one. It was getting ridiculous. It's more likely that Yuuri bought the cheapest ones - Yurio said they were pieces of junk after all - or maybe it's an animation error. Plot wise it's clear Yuuri paid for both rings.
Paso Doble is what Viktor and Yuuri are dancing
Jumps have always been part of figure skating, if you don't enjoy them go watch ice dancing. Throughout the last decades, it was always the athletes that couldn't do both, that would sperg about 'muh jumps' while the point is real talents could and can do both.
Yuuri looks so cute and happy here, no wonder Viktor thought he would be so depressed when he went to Japan to see him again.
It's so cute I could look at this for hours and not get tired of it

there's a good reason why victor didn't open up to others until yuuri came
I haven't really seen those posts but I've only been watching these threads for the last 4 hours. My assertion is simply that it's more likely that Yuri laid down 1,400+ eu and that our shot of the receipt is probably misleading
>mfw studying for finals and increased work has me currently on ep 8
Who even is this one skater with a weird pseudo incest relationship with his sister?
It can't stay anonymous when you have fucking identities. That's the whole point. If I wanted an ID, I'd get a tripcode here. You cannot have the same kind of discussions and threads when anonymity is broken because people recognize your previous posts and start getting an image of what you like/dislike etc. That's why /a/ and 4chan in general is such a great concept and ghost a way better alternative but do whatever you prefer, just don't try to sell it as anonymous.
Minako was apparently a pretty amazing dancer, so it would make sense that she'd know multiple styles. Most ballerinas are also really good at transitioning to other styles to begin with.
Because my kokoro belongs to Phichit.
You must be extremely rich if you can't imagine some people getting 350 EUR engagement rings (I mean 700 for both). That might not seem like a lot but for most people even in Europe, it's a lot of money and buying it on a whim like Yuuri did, a bit crazy. Especially since he isn't a top star skater with tons of sponsors, money from ads and ice shows.
Let's start a fucking Kickstarter
YoI S2 ideas: They are too old to skate so they take on professional dancing
Who's the other one? Long haired Victor and Makkachin?
If you don't like it that's fine. If you prefer the shithole that is ghost that's fine too. There's no need to be so butthurt over something that won't affect these threads whatsoever,
Has anyone made a clean version of this yet?
It's quite common, my aunt is a ballet teacher and she also does tap and jazz. Yuuri's probably pretty well rounded as a dancer, would be interesting to see his past performances.
>You must be extremely rich if you can't imagine some people getting 350 EUR engagement rings.
This. Me and my bf have engagement rings worth 100 euro for both rings. 350 euro is alot when you are poor.
I didn't start feeling bad for him until I realized his parents are the reason he is like this. His mother and father control his every move. His girlfriend was probably selected by his mother, to ensure he would begin the next generation in their dynasty of skaters. His girlfriend is also probably manipulative and controlling; she along with his mother harp on him, control his every move, his image. He doesn't have friends because he was homeschooled and trained to skate from a young age and they always told him he was amazing. It's Mr. and Mrs. Leroy's fault he is an egotistical dick. Also they probably don't want him socializing with the other skaters.
Someone needs to teach him humility.
just to be clear on thing- the discord server was not my idea. i just understand why some anons would want it, and the functionality it serves.
>start getting an image of what you like/dislike
A lot of people, to some extent can recognize post styles and picture namestyles.
it's just that there's many ways that anonymity is kept on 4chan, which just makes it easy because there's no nametags and being an anon over tripfagging is more promoted as well.
it's also why i said
>if the community that originates from making sure no one blogposts and it stays 100% anonymous at all times can't just self-manage nametags, then it'll just die out on it's own.
I don't see why I need to further this discussion on this, though, because like I said it's just an option someone gave out to avoid the eventual shitfest these threads will deteriorate to, like this guy said about SnK threads >>150704145
You are right, it won't affect the threads, if anything with the cancer being taken out, they should be more enjoyable again so thank you for your good deed, deleting yourself.
And professional dancer usually keeo working for a while, the people on that video are on their 30s
You gotta love the commitment of some Fujos.
In fact I am not rich - I'm just aware of how much a gold wedding ring that you can buy on the streets of Barcelona at the front counter would be. Have you bought a gold wedding ring before, anon?
Yuuri's actions were a bit crazy - but then again - young love in Barcelona with your idol would get the best of all of us.
To be fair, even at their worst, YOI threads were never as bad as /snk/. Snk is the trashbin of /a/ and I say that as someone who spent 3 years there. What a waste of my time.
And i'd imagine your engagement rings weren't thick gold bands from a designer shop in downtown barcelona. There's nothing wrong with getting a cheap wedding ring - it's just not likely in this scenario.
Current. He was a little too pretty as a teenager. I like him better with short hair too.

Yeah but I'm talking about the conversion. Like, I get the rings are a lot of money in Euros but that's nearly 100,000 yen. For a kid who is flying economy everywhere and probably hasn't been sponsored much in the past year, that's like buying 2 cars worth of rings.
I love the new fanart twitter/pixiv/tumblr/everyone is deploying thank you Yamamoto
Yuuri shouldn't be so embarrassed about what went down at the dance. He could've told Victor that he could land a plane on his forehead instead of asking him to be his coach.
Anyone want ring edits? I will make them since I'm bored, but only on the right hand to keep it consistent.
Is Yuuri more likely to get wasted if he wins or if he loses?
If he only knew, all of this is amusing in retrospect.
He is alpha as fuck just shy.
>He challenged fairy to a danced off after he yelled at him in the bathroom before. Most likely he went on Victor´s table with Yurio sitting there too and YOU KNOW WHAT FAIRY, I CAN DANCE BETTER THAN YOU AND BEAT YOU TO A PULP. While at the same time talking to Victor.

I'm gunning for a perfectly normal upper middle class Russian childhood. Like his dad wasn't around he was busy working for a company but still supported him and his mother. His mother was a nice lady who always wanted to be a figure skater herself but couldn't. She mentions it to him when he is a little kid and it makes him want to skate. She takes him to lessons but doesn't push him too do it until he insists that's what he wants himself. He then lives a life of someone training for skating at the top level in Russia. Also his dad may have passed away from being middle aged and working hard but his mom is still alive.
Will Victor let him dance like that in front of others now that he's his?
It's the next day and I still can't believe we were right about everything, about the bike ride, about Otabek knowing Fairy. Meme magic is amazing.
It's so nice that a show with such delicious characters has hit such ridiculous levels of popularity, it means there will be mountains of doujins and some of the good ones will even get scanned.
Yuri on ice confirmed for literal fucking toddlers.
Don't forget all of the EROS scenes when he kept telling Victor to focus only on him.
Even our based mezamero joined in.
First actual skaters watch it, then it gets dropped in South Park. What is life. 2016 is magical.
Sad that JJSeung got BTFOed.
I feel like this year is something out of the Twilight Zone, both great and horrible.
He was obviously really emotionally affected, the beach scene made that clear without hearing his inner monologue. He probably hasn't experienced such a genuine, loving gesture before judging by his reaction.
He finally got his wish, how would you feel if someone you love proposed and gave you a ring?
This whole confirmation of Victor having been lonely and never getting to spend time on himself makes Minako's remarks during Stay By My Side so sad. Everyone just assumed he must be neck deep in affection not realizing that all the admiration for him is at an arms length because he seems so untouchable.
What's really interesting is Stay by my side was obviously commissioned by victor way before he met Yuri, yet it still seems to fit in really well with Yuri. I wonder who inspired it.
Thank you god.jpg
By the way is there a clean, stiched up version of pic related out there or did I miss it?
Maybe it represents a longing for someone and then Yuuri shows up and fills the gap, it was Victor's desire to have someone to stay by his side. Then Yuuri leaves and inspires Eros.
The song is definitely one of those things that's coincidental in-universe but purposeful narrative-wise. So in a sense it's 100% about Yuuri, but in-story it's more like a foretelling.
That's probably why Yuuri asking him to be his coach affected him so much. Most people see him as an idol and other skaters see him as a rival, Yuuri saw him as someone he could work closely with.
Exactly. I admit I too thought for the longest time that since Viktor is a genius he could just summon emotions and perform effortlessly even emotions that weren't his. And that's why he could perform Stay close to me.
I wonder if that "lover" story of his from episode two was actually real. Not to say he's still a virgin or anything, just that I'm pretty sure he has struggled to have any meaningful relationships as he admitted this episode. Maybe neither of them have dated seriously?
Thank you anon, I love you.
Every cat is a bae, but the original Bae was Chris' kitty.

That's why it's so weird to me that people say the banquet reveal was cheap or shallow. Even if you totally ignore Yuuri being the first person to really get candid and up-close with him, there's the simple fact that Yuuri is hot and showed him a great time. That right there is the reason people go on second, third, fourth dates: because the person who took them out is hot and showed them a fantastic time.
I'm actually scared, I have no idea where that character is supposed to fit now. It looks like everyone that matters has been introduced, but obviously, this is not the case.
A lot of people in the threads yesterday were saying it's shallow that Victor fell for a drunk guy pole dancing. Man, people fall in love for way stupider reasons in real life AND in anime. I like this reason better than the usual "I love him because he's kind/promised me when we were 3 years old that we'd get married/picked up my eraser when I dropped it when nobody else in my life would" shit we usually get in anime.
This show gets more and more homo each episode. Every week Yuri and Victor's relationship deepens. Every week I wait excitedly to see where it goes next. Is this the first stage of coming out?
Well I don't believe Victor fell for him then and there but he was definitely interested. And let's be real, the partnering shots in the ED are romanchikku as fuck, no matter how slutty Yuri was being.
PABarthez is the mastermind behind a stripper pole being at the banquet.
Just look to the right of him in that shot.
>Victor is actually blushing
Gets gayer everytime
They're in love.
A couple is still too many for a twist this good.
Probably had some meaningless relationships which were short because he was too busy to maintain them. And itd seems he didn't actually seriously love anyone before.
He'll Tonya Yurio. Screencap this. And Yuuri, Otabek, and Viktor will see it happen. Otabek will attack him while Yuuri rushes to Yurio's side. Viktor's pissed off at Yurio so he just stands there and Yurio's pained screams attract the attention of Phichit, who goes to get help. Viktor finally lets it go and carries Yurio to the paramedics. Otabek pummeling the shit out of that guy Barth allows police to arrest him and not let him get away.
Otafairy is gold and I'm so sad we will only be able to enjoy them for three episodes. Imagine the amount of fanworks and doujin they would have by now if they had interacted earlier.
>those carefully hidden ring hands
Yuuri and Yuri have the same name because they can make one season about one then the next about the other. This first season is about Yuuri so the second will be about Yuri and then we can watch him flourish under Otabek's influence and they will slowly fall in love with one another over many years. The two series showcase a different type of love in each.
Kubo, you madwoman. She planned all of this. If nuts isn't a coincedence, then neither is them having the same name. This is her master plan.
We're in a weird place now, anon.
>Way back in my day, there was a troll editing rings onto official art before lots of people saw it to trick them into thinking they would get married eventually.
>LITTLE DID THEY KNOW IT LITERALLY HAPPENED
If Yuuri gets drunk again at this year's banquet, he better have his hair slicked back for maximum Eros.
I really hope the final episode includes a scene where Yurio is crying in the bathroom stall over either losing the competition, his grandpa dying, or feeling lonely, and for Yuuri to walk in and instead of doing what Yurio did to Yuuri in the first episode, he just knocks on the stall door, Yurio opens it, and Yuuri embraces him gently while Yurio cries into his arms. It'd show the progression of both characters very well.
The the last final minutes of the episode must be the wedding, of course. Or, Viktor, Yuuri, and Yurio doing that scene from the first ending.
>that purposeful hiding of the ring hands
What is this shenainganery

W-WHAT DID GEORGI MEAN BY THIS
I'm shocked on a weekly basis how much planning has gone into this series, by sheer virtue of how little we've been able to predict.
Dedushka must die, I'm sorry. But Yurio will live with Viktor and Yuuri and Otabek, switching houses every 6 months or so, so it'll be okay.
Bless you, dedushka. Thank you for taking care of fairy. Your time has come but we will not forget you!
Saint Georgi, have a heart and save the elderly!
people who got mad at the banquet scene and called it cheap clearly have never had a date IRL or been in any romantic relationship
There are people who got mad over this? Holy shit. Purityfags everywhere, even in my homo.
He's experiencing platonic love and admiration for someone else that isn't dedushka. (not to say dedushka shouldn't be admired or loved, he absolutely should be)
But don't worry, it evolves into romantic love in season two. But until then, it's 5/5 Agape here in that shot.
But Wincest is my OTP. Gook can go fuck his dog.
I found it refreshing that their meeting wasn't some innocent, romanticized anime cliche and was more like an adult oriented romcom situation. It was funny, sexy and touching all at once, and actually makes sense for a bunch of 20 somethings.
>yuuri bought a single ring in response to a conversation where it’s clear that he wants to give viktor a gift but he doesn’t know what. so he buys him a ring. one ring. it’s on the receipt, it’s what he says to the woman behind the register, so on and so on.
>upon buying what he keeps deludedly telling himself is “a good luck charm,” they go somewhere romantic. he stumbles through what sounds like a japanese proposal, puts said ring on the orthodox ring finger in the entryway of a church which is where orthodox betrothals are supposed to happen, then he asks viktor to “tell him something for good luck” in exchange.

>viktor bought a ring at the same shop at the same time. this doesn’t seem likely, considering a. viktor’s stunned reaction to yuuri’s purchase, and b. the level of red yuuri turns when suddenly viktor gives him a ring as well.
>viktor has been carrying a fucking ring ALL AROUND BARCELONA to propose to yuuri whenever it seemed right, and that little fuck beats him to it. by, like usual, doing both everything and nothing at the same time.
I still think Yuuri bought both. If Victor did surprise Yuuri with the other, the show would've focused on that more and Yuuri would've given more a reaction. It was just too quick.
