>>
>>150724101
Because he's a pure boy mistaken as a slut who's really just a lovestruck world champion who threw away his career, moved across the globe for a chance at love.

It's so sad that Yuuri doesn't remember the way Viktor looked at him and how he made him blush. I imagine that it would be an insane confidence boost.

But yes, I also wonder whether he finds out someday.

Going by his website description I'm expecting he will be like Yuuri but better in every way. They seem pretty similar, both very quiet and reserved but on the ice its like they become a completely different person and delivers strong emotional routines.

This needs to happen. Slavic languages have potential for so many cute diminutives, Yuuri needs to use them all.

>>150724512
Why is Yuuri's quadruple flip not completely filled in? Is there a possibility that he might not actually do it...?
>>
>>150724852
Funny how the pronunciation is nearly the same as the name of his dead poodle.
>>
>>150724977
Because he has never landed it perfectly yet. It would have been a spoiler otherwise. Not that I expect him not to land it, that would be such a let down.
>>
>>150724983
It really isn't, it's just that they can't pronounce it that well.

I've spent quite a long time thinking about how Yuuri will incorporate the ring into his Eros routine.
Prediction:
>It will be at the end, as he holds the final embracing pose.
>Then slowly, he starts to arch his back and neck outwards slightly out of the pose, craning his neck out sideways as if Viktor were right beside him.
>Cue a close-up of his hand slowly extending his fingers out, exposing the ring on his finger.
>emphasis of his lips slowly making their way up his hand.
>eventually finding the ring, he tenderly and softly kisses the ring as if he is kissing Viktor's ring while in embrace with him.
>Pan out to Yuuri sultry staring at Viktor afterwards.
>Viktor at a loss for words.
>reactions of disbelief from everyone

(I thought way too much into this, I'm sorry)
What do you think he'll do, anons?
>>
>>150725084
This is pretty accurate. 5/5 Eros equals ring tonguing.
>>
>>150724894
Ahh, I was reading coach as kocchi, like calling a pet, my bad. any idea what the other side says? I'm not even going to make an attempt.

And yes, we all know ring will play a part in Eros. I believe the madwomen will not disappoint.
>>
>>150725159
Anyway, who's the artist for this one, anon?
>>
Anyone else expecting JJ to fail horribly in finals, like injure himself mid routine or something while making a jump too cockily?
>>
>>150725084
I am really interested to see if they let the press make a big deal of it.
>>
>>150725084
I still believe in the butt/hip slap. We see in the preview he and Victor seem to do something with the rings before already and I could see Yuuri having the "this is too personal/precious to flaunt in the routine" mindset.
>>
>>150725198
I want JJko to Anya him. Too bad she's too boring to do something like that.
>>
Friday isn't even over yet. Thursday went on for ages.holy shit the anticipation is real

>>150725191
it's on the image anon
>>
>>150725216
After Viktor kissed him in front of cameras and everything? And after incorporating pretty much every relationship upgrade into the routine? No, I believe he will do something with the ring. But your idea is nice, too.
>>
>>150725198
I think he will, he will definitely not become first.
>>
>>150725216
I don't know. It depends on Yuuri at that moment. Normal Yuri will definitely think the ring is too precious, but Eros Yuri will want to flaunt to everybody that Viktor is already his.
>>
>>150725198
JJ will be the fail of the century. Coming first in both prelims then flopping hard. Boy needs a reality check
>>
>>150725250
Yeah, the writing is pretty much shit. I can't make up the last half of the letters.
>>
>>150725198
I've been predicting this since he appeared but I also feel like him getting silver rings while Yuuri got gold ones might be some sort of hint, its Kubo after all and she seem to like that kind of silly foreshadowing
>>
>>150725198
No, that would cheapen Yuuri's victory. If it happens ;_;
>>
>>150725277
This. Eros Yuri is all about proving Victor is his and possession, the ring is the logical next step honestly.

I still don't think Victor is gay I think he just uses it because it gets Yuuri to perform his best, But like I said before gay or not this show would still be enjoyable.

There's been enough from Kubo on Twitter to support that this is a gay relationship anon.

>>150725198
Otabek will look him straight in the eye and tell him: "Stop. You're no king. You're embarassing both yourself and your country. Just skate like normal people do."
This will lead to JJ's destruction. Otabek is such a bro that he befriended Fairy just by being honest. I believe that his honesty can alsı ruin JJ.

Also let's not forget that Otabek's family name means "gold".
>>
>>150725376
Otabek doing this would be awesome, but I want Fairy and Yuuri to be instrumental to his downfall. He ignored Yuuri and humiliated Fairy, so I want them to get him a reality check.
>>
>>150725084
This >>150725216. Eros is sexual, the rings don't matter here. Rings are more of a romantic thing.
Should they be flaunted, it'll be during the FS.

This raises a good point actually. He isn't a good coach and really Yuri is only doing well under him for other reasons. Should he keep coaching?
>>
>>150725376
I think their themes will have to with it. Otabak is the hero, Yuri the fairy, JJ is the king. The hero will usually defeat a king in a story, but a fairy doesn't, it usually supports a hero.

I actually would love an alt-universe OVA, with the characters being their themes. Michelle a knight, Emile a robot, Seung-Gil a parrot, Guang Hong an assasin and Georgi being the almighty witch.
>>
>>150725198
I expect he'll have another conversation with Viktor, only this time he'll realize Viktor barely remembers his name. That will crush him for sure.

I'm still going to finish this but I won't be able to tonight, so I won't be able to get around to the one that anon wanted either because I think I'm going to have to post to /ic/ asking for help with the anatomy because I can't find and good reference pictures to help and some parts are confusing me, especially Chris's back arm and his pectorals. Also the faces are pretty much place holder at the moment, I'm not sure if I should attempt to make Yuri's look more Japanese or not because I am pretty bad at drawing asian faces side on.

Do you think Victor will cry during the finale? If so when/why?
>>
>>150726062
Many scenes that previously depicted Viktor as autismo/slut make sense now. Man, the direction in this anime leaves me breathless, it's so consistent and good.

>>150726112

>>
>>150726053
We still have two episodes to go.
>>
>>150726146
Victor is still a slut because he did go with part of the intention of getting Yuuri in bed most likely, but sluts turning into pure maidens at first love is literally a god tier trope.

Remember the scene in ep 3 in the locker room and Victor just stands there silently? Everyone said he was making evil plans how he could use Yuri to get famous again but he was actually just worried about him losing and having to go back to Russia with Yurio.
>>
>>150726139
For what reason, though? Viktor canonically barely remembers JJ's name and JJ acts like an asshole to Piggy. They wouldnt have their weddings together.
>>
>>150726208
Really? I feel that it's more like he was intrigued at the event and then after all the dancing and what not he went full romanchikku.
>>
>>150726187
do you think that they would cut that scene to something else to give a cliff hanger to his performance and we don't realize who won until the banquet when congratulate people on their ranking?
>>
>>150726225
This season's finale should take place at Georgi's wedding. Then we'll think about it.
>>
>>150726200
At this rate, I don't think they'll sleep with each other until Victor skates Stay By My Side with Yuuri.

In all honesty, I am a contrarian and hope Yuuri loses (but still place on the podium) because it will force Victor to prove himself that he will be with Yuuri no matter what.

>>150726230
I have never understood people who said that Viktor had some grand keikaku, never looked like that to me.
>>
>>150726261
Or if Yuri wins it'll force them to work out the "after" since Yuri will retire.>>150726261
>>
>>150726230
Yeah, considering Episode 7, Victor being quiet, stiff and pensive usually means he's nervous.

>>150726280
Remember that Yuuri has his anxiety to deal with. Skillwise, at least at the Onsen on Ice, Yuuri was the better skater, but it was his first competition after the GPF '15 disaster. And Yuuri almost had an anxiety attack too if Victor didn't spot him.
>>
Did Baldfat have sex? Maybe after Russia? When they were in Hasetsu for like a week? After they came back from airport?
>>
Hold up

The reason Yurio accepted prima ballerina Lilia as his new coach so easily is that he got wrecked in the dance-off against Yuuri last year and knew he had to up his dance game
>>
>>150726261
I get this approach, anon, but I want to see him succeed so bad. I'm so invested that it's clearly not normal.
>>
>>150726353
thats believable, now I want a Yuri v Yurio ballet competition seeming as they both know it.
>>
>>150725545
Why are people saying this is venue only? Doesn't the 会場先行商品 on the site imply that it'll be available elsewhere later? The event only ones like Yuri's lion shirt have a 会場限定 label on them.
>>
>>150726230
Nah like that other anon said the other day I think he was actually considering leaving. Yuuri was ignoring him and Viktor must have been there during the training sessions, he knew Yuuri hadn't mastered Eros yet. Thankfully Yuuri realized he wasn't up to Viktor's standards and spent the whole night training. If he hadn't I don't want to think about what could have happened.
It's obvious now why he didn't return the hug before the performance. He must have thought Yuuri was playing with him.
>>
>>150725198
To be fair I'm starting to feel bad for him, his program is gold winner but he's the butt of the show and the only way Yuuri or Yurio can beat that is with some Tonya'd magic or he flopping really bad for some reason.
Probably helps that I find him mostly fun to watch.
>>
>>150726393
I will cry. Being Victor is suffering.
>>
>>150726393
>tfw cute japanese boy asks you to become his coach then doesn't even seem happy or serious about it
>>
>>150726288
You have to admit that in the first three episodes, Victor seemed a bit shady. He is the GOAT who is facing retirement soon and he is losing his touch to surprise anyone. Suddenly he goes and becomes a coach to the Glass Heart of Skating.

It wasn't still subsequent episodes you realized that Victor was realizing that skating isn't all there to life and he was missing something, so stuff was starting to ring hollow to him. Yuuri really saved him by showing that he can take another path in his life and wanted besides being Victor Nikiforov the GOAT skater.
>>
This looks adorable I'm really tempted to buy it http://www.animate-onlineshop.jp/pn/%E3%80%90%E5%90%8C%E4%BA%BA%E8%AA%8C%E3%80%91ANCHOR/pd/1434207/
>>
>>150726142
I very much believe Yuri will say "I love you" to Victor right before skating off to do his FS. Victor will stand there shocked then start crying during or after the program, which is almost guaranteed to be one big love confession to Victor in itself.
>>
>>150726393
Nah, if he was seriously considering leave, he wouldn't bother with the whole competition in the first place. I know some of you want to paint Victor as his love martyr but it wasn't that deep, son.

Him being nervous that he has to go back to the life that was increasingly becoming unsatisfying to him and leaving Yuuri, who he was steadily falling more and more in love with him, and the life he was enjoying in Hasetsu makes a lot more sense.
>>
>>150725863
Phichit has two 4t and both of them are on the second half with 10% more base value. He is relying on triple combinations. It helped his score a little bit. But I doubt he will get gold or made it to the podium at all.

Joke all you want about JJ but he is fucking op. JJ's FS has nearly the same jump base value as Victor's last year FS. Chris is on top condition so his SP and FS will get a huge score boost. There's a chance Fairy will backload his jumps. Yuuri's jump also get some upgrades.

I bet he will get 5th or 6th. Depending on where Otabek and Yurio will place. But Phichit has the smallest chance of winning here.
>>
>>150726482
I want doujins where Victor deages to long hair and 18-years-old, and Yuuri uses all the carnal knowledge of 27-year-old Victor that he's learned over months and months of tender lovemaking to turn deaged Victor into a writhing, begging mess.

Then Yuuri wakes up with a raging hard-on. Victor's come home in the middle of the night and is waking him up with a handjob and asks "What were you dreaming about?" and when Yuuri stammers out an answer Victor is absolutely charmed and asks if Yuuri wants him to get a wig and one of his old costumes.
>>
>>150726482
Is that water drop supposed to look like a dick?
>>
>>150726469
Yeah, when you say it like this, Viktor does sound suspicious. I never got that vibe from him due to the nature of the show, though. It just seemed too bizarre given the setting.
>>
>>150726469
Exactly. I have no problem admitting I thought there might be a plot twist with Victor using Piggy as a transformation project to flaunt his own skills and keep his fame alive. Not to mention the story of the playboy leaving the girl once he's tired of her left a lot of people thinking Victor would soon get bored of Yuuri.

>who he was steadily falling more and more in love with him
What show have you been watching? Episode 2 and 3 are all about Yuuri rejecting Viktor's advances.
The competition was Yuuri's last chance. It was a way for Yuuri to make up for his ignoring Viktor with his skating. Viktor must have felt Yuuri wasn't giving it his all, and consequently wouldn't have minded leaving had Yuuri not been able to perform Eros properly. Which is what he must have thought would happen in pic related. Since he wasn't aware Yuuri had an epiphany and spent the night training iwth Minako.
>>
>>150726749
Remember when that episode first aired and people were using your pic related to show how Victor is just manipulating Yuuri to hone him as a rival so he's not bored at the top?

Man. Our pre-ep 7 ep discussions become so ridiculous now.

I want JJ's name to become skater lingo later down the line for someone who's a complete unremarkable fuckup. I want it to be used within earshot for maximum butthurt.

Fairy lost to him even with all he had, but Piggy has never skated against him at his best, and changed his program's difficulty to match JJ's. It's entirely possible to beat him fair and square.

This. Honestly JJ has a higher chance of winning. As much as people seem to hate him, you have to admit he's good.

Unless JJ really fucks it up or Yuri really changed things up to beat him, Yuri won't win.

And even then chances are Yuri will still not get gold.
>>
>>150726642
There had to have been an element of selfishness about him or else Yakov wouldn't have kept saying he was selfish and would be a shit coach.

If we ever get a second season, I hope it will be about women's skating. We already have two established characters, too.
>>
>>150726749
Just because Yuuri was keeping to himself doesn't mean Victor was so hurt that he was thinking about leaving. You are too into your headcanon and actually ignoring what was there.

Onsen on Ice was to prove that Victor's faith in Yuuri was warranted or not.

Besides, Yuuri declaring that he wanted to eat katsudon with Victor as much as they can always told Victor that he was wanted anyway and that was before the match, dingus. So can we end the "Poor Victor is a love martyr" bullshit headcanon already?
>>
>>150727105
I'm so proud I believed in him from the very beginning. Well, I did consider him a slut, but I thought that he was a well-meaning slut. So that's something at least.
>>
>>150727103
I'm struggling too. Usually it's only one character that is appealing and the other is more of a cardboard cutout but you still want them to be together because that's what the more developped character (who usually happens to be my husbando) wants.

>>150727159
Yuuri will win anyway, by the power of Victor's dick and upgraded yuri on Ice and JJ will fuck up his FS while the anime cut his performance like Taco's FS.

I honestly don't want that to happen. Yuuri's win will be unsatisfying and the whole build up around JJ's skill as a top skater are wasted. It feels cheap. I want Yuuri to win when JJ does a clean skate. But the recent episode make JJ look like a Karamatsu tier joke character so I doubt anything good will happen to him.

>>
>>150727412
JJ was a joke from the start, his SP was overblown but he did well. I agree that Yuri must win without handicaps or it will seem cheap, but it's not like JJ is Victor-tier. Chris beat him, and he didn't even place at the Worlds.

>>150727459
I will never stop feeling guilty of making fun of him because of that scene. He just left his old life behind for a man who finally made him feel something in his life devoid of any meaningful connections and he treats him like a complete stranger.
>>
>>150727607
And here Victor is thinking about all his emotions and feelings, and Fairy shows up and tries to knock him down when I think Victor is very emotionally vaunerable.
>>
>>150727664
I don't think he chokes. He's good, but just not as good as he thinks he is. Otabek could have fairly beaten him to bronze for all we know.
>>
>>150727607
>Fairy kicking his back might have looked like comic relief because of the artstyle

Pretty sure it was done in purpose to mislead the viewer

The scene was unexpectedly dark and tense
>>
>>150727730
This. I didn't see it as a comic relief when it aired. It made me somewhat anxious.
>>
>>150727479
Yurio was saying what some anons in the thread were talking about earlier; that Yuuri is just some sort of project for Victor to prove his skills and keep his fame hence the "I'll win and prove to everyone how bad his (Piggy's) trainer is". Its also the reason Yurio keeps saying Victor is old and busted and should just fuck off already, all he sees is a man desperatly trying to stay famous and continue his career through someone else. Not to mention he is still salty as fuck losing the Onsen event.
>>
>>150727667
It would read weirdly in English if they used the word "livestock", which is a term for plural animals. They used [expletive] pig to get the same feeling that he's referring to yuri in a demeaning way. In Victor's subs towards yuri it's little piggy or whatever, and his tone is endearing, so unless you're deaf and partially illiterate it makes sense


Fuck now I'm the autist
>>
>>150727725
That doesn't make sense though. He's skated two perfect programmes for the prelims and is the highest scorer so far this season. The only way he is guaranteed not to win is if he chokes.
>>
>>150727730
You're probably right. I'm still not sure what this is all about though, since I never really understood the fairy. Guess we'll see in the next episodes.
I hope fairy will cry and apologize for being a cunt. I'm tired of everyone indulging him because he's a kid with problems. He needs a good wake up slap to the face.
>>
>>150727772
Doesn't Yurio also call Yuri pig and fatty? How was what he said to Victor harsher?
>>
Does Yuuri really love Victor in a romantic sense?

He always idolized Victor and when Victor came into his life, he saw him only as a coach at first. He didn't like Victor flirting with him.

He got comfortable with touching and hugging because Victor is always touchy with him. Now he buys him a ring saying it's a good luck charm.

He never initiated any romantic thing between them.

If he wasn't grinding on Victor at the banquet, I wouldn't think he might be sexually attracted to Victor and not just adore him as a skater.
>>
>>150727776
Or if the other skaters, like Yuri, and Chris who takes time to peak at the finals, weren't skating their own programs perfectly.
>>
>>150727772

Using the word pig is kinda meaningless because it has become a word for comedic effect. Subbing it as "farm/wild animal" would have been better.
>>
>>150727804
I want to say yes but until they come out and say it, maybe not? The rings are a big sign saying YES but only Victor outright said they were engagement rings.
>>
>>150727804
Is this the new copypasta?
>>
>>150727804

They have been using romantic motiff for Yuuri's actions, which are obviously well researched from his part. I get the impression Yuuri is just too shy to say his feelings face to face. He doesn't even deny Viktor's statements, he just "I NEED A MOMENT".
>>
>>150727479
Fairy was shittalking on his relationship with Yuuri. I don't think Fairy meant most of it as it was specifically said to piss Victor off and Fairy is still pissed Victor "abandoned" him. Still over the line though.

I can't understand why some anons though Victor was slighted about Fairy calling him old and outdated. If would matter if Victor had plans to come back to competitive skating but this episode pretty much shat on that idea.
>>
>>150727820
I meant to also add that it's likely he's already peaked for the season.
>>
I have a feeling next episode or the last will be Victor having a nervous breakdown and Yuri having to console him or something.
>>
>>150727804
Yuuri is very, very repressed if you don't count his moments of boldness. That's why he keeps doing stuff like buying (two) marriage rings and justifying it to himself as "good luck charms" while putting one of them on Viktor's finger in an obviously romantic manner. It's also why he's embarrassed when Viktor declares they will marry, but he doesn't deny it.
Alcohol merely removed his inhibitions.
>>
>>150727839
The one who said they were engagement rings was Victor too. Yuuri was denying anything romantic again.
>>
>>150727497
>Pride and Prejudice

>>
>>150727880
Typical nip, yo.
>>
>>150727804
as some one as inexperienced in love and as anxious as Yuri I don't find it surprising that he turned down Victor's advances as a form of self defence. I mean having your, much richer, famous and achieved idol hit on you when you're at an all time low would be quite a shock, he was probably scared it was fake. I don't blame him from wanting to protect himself from being humiliated.
>>
>>150727858
I am very serious about this question.
>>
>>150727839
>>150727887
It's like you're forgetting who bought the rings in the first place, and specifically wedding rings no less.
>>
>>150727804
I think he was in denial, maybe still is to a certain extent.
>I-I'm getting dokis because I'm so happy my idol is here!
>I'm buying 700 euro wedding ring but as a good luck charm!
Man was grinding on him drunk, plastered posters of him all over his bedroom, blushes, is possessive, is needy and clingy, begs God to let them be together for longer. All that put together isn't platonic.

>I can't understand why some anons though Victor was slighted about Fairy calling him old and outdated. If would matter if Victor had plans to come back to competitive skating but this episode pretty much shat on that idea.

Something I have been saying from the beginning. Viktor is aware some people don't look up to him already or even hate him, he has repeteadly showed he didn't care for winning but just surprising people, repeteadly showed he doesn't care about performing skating himself and likes the homely life at Hasetsu. Comments about his persona are meaningless at this point and probably always were considering is not the first time someone tries to offend him, just don't touch the pig.
>>
>>150727923
Then he called them good luck charms.
>>
So what cute nickname would Yurio give to Otobek?
I'm okay with Bek or Besha.
>>
>>150727887
He only denied they were married, when Victor said they were engaged he just acted flustered. It struck me as weird unless it was true.
>>
>>150727925
Yeah, if he wasn't grinding on him when drunk, I wouldn't say he is attracted to him as a man. All the rest could be just idolizing someone and having anxiety.
>>
>>150727950

I spend 484855.91 yen in wedding bands for me and my bro too
>>
>>150727910
Not to mention he doesn't know Victor as a person. He knows Victor #1 Skater who he has followed for years and read articles about. He has no idea how to handle this Victor or for a while why Victor is even there. It makes sense Yuri is so all over the place, between hero worship and being weirded out by this over the top autist.

I'm just saying that Victor is in love with him and Yuuri is just going with it cause his idol is there with him. I mean he adores Victor and doesn't wanna let him go but that doesn't mean he is sexually and romantically attracted to him.

Okay, airport scene is quite romantic actually. You're right. Then he started being attracted to him after ep7?

>>150728047
I believe it's mutual but Yuri has said time and time again he doesn't understand what love is, just that he wants to keep Victor with him and that is his definition of love. Yuri hasn't had the lightbulb moment of "oH this is Love love" yet but his actions betray his true feelings.

I believe that it started earlier, but it is difficult to pinpoint where his hero worship turned into something more genuine. You're right that something important happened in ep7, though. Viktor royally fucked up and so Yuuri recognized that he was, in fact, human just like everyone else. Maybe that was why he started to be a little more confident when it came to expressing his feelings.

>>
>>150728251
He's probably both but the boy has never been in a relationship and might not even understand that he's in one with Victor because it's so tied up in skating as well. Not that I'm saying Victor's behaviour is normal for coaches and Yuri is too dumb to tell the difference but more that Yuri's lack of romantic experience might be making his self justification easier. He is definitely romantically attracted to Victor though (and physically if that pregnant comment has any weight).
>>
>>150728296
Its funny how the banquet party also gives more context to Chris calling Yuri's Eros a destructive force. He got to experience it first hand after all

Yeah, and don't forget that Viktor probably didn't talk about their relationship with him at all because he lived under the impression that Yuuri remembers the banquet night which was obviously sexually charged. He saw everything that happened as a natural development while Yuuri was just fucking confused.

He looked pretty in love to me in episode 9. The whole thing about desperately needing to hug Victor and Victor alone seemed romanchikku as fuck to me.
>>
>>150728416

he's the sleeping beauty and Viktor came to SAAAVEEEEEE MEE NOOOOOOOOW
>>
>>150728375
One could argue that maybe it was the end of ep3 ("I know who I dance for"), but you are probably right.
>>
>>150728404
Exactly. Not to mention Victor came to Yuri on his terms with his own reasons, leaving Yuri to wonder what the fuck was going on AND learn that the Victor on his bedroom walls and the one in his house were two vastly different people.
>>
>>150727804
Yuuri is a very confused man until Episode 7. Yuuri never seen his "admiration" for Victor anything but that even though to pretty much anyone who knows him knows the guy has been harboring a celeb crush for years. And I do think that Yuuri putting Victor on a pedestal played a role in it. When Victor comes to Hasetsu, it really much overwhelmed Yuuri and now he's worried that Victor was going to see the loser Yuuri thinks he is and starts pushing him away. But at the same time, the show does show that Yuuri was at least attracted to Victor, even he didn't understand what it had meant. Episode 4 was probably that Yuuri falls for Victor in that scene where he asks God for Victor's time, not winning the GPF, but for having Victor by his side. Episode 5 does show that Yuuri was still confused on how he felt for Victor but he knew it was a type of love.

Then the kiss happens. I don't think Yuuri looking like he was in a trance after Victor kissed him. It was probably the moment he realized that he was in love with Victor.

Yuri even says to Victor that he was embarrassed and ashamed to show him his flaws. To me it all started after the scene on the beach. "He meets me where I am" is the start of their relationship becoming more grounded and less Idol and Piggy.

>>150728521
What gets me about Yuuri's evolution of Eros routine is how he starts out referring to himself with female pronouns (atashi if I heard correctly) during the skate and only manages to skate the routine perfectly when he switches to his usual boku. If that isn't a beautiful metaphor for him coming to term with his feelings, then I don't know what is.
>>
I think some of you are missing the point of Yuuri talking about love in the media press. Many translators have pointed out the subs were wrong, for example:

>"My love is not something clear-cut like romantic love[...]"
>「僕の愛、それは分かりやすい愛や恋ではなく、ヴィクトルとの絆や、家族や、地元に対する微妙な気持ち」
>In their haste to no-homo this sentence, they removed possibly the most important part of Yuuri’s speech on love : he refutes both the simplicity of 'platonic ai’ and 'romantic koi’, not just romantic love. And he also makes a very clear distinction between his relationship with Victor as something completely separate from his other relationships.

> "I don't really have a name for that emotion"
>「その感情に名前はないけど、敢えて「愛」と呼ぶことにしました」
>They rewrote this sentence, possibly for flow, but in the result made Yuuri look like he didn’t know what his feelings were but he decided to call it 'love’ anyway. No. Yuuri knows. He just also happens to know that there is no name to call his feelings, so he’s deliberately decided to give it one.

The ‘deliberately’ part is pretty important, in that he makes sure everyone knows that he knows what he’s talking about.

Did Victor understand this press conference?

>>150727635
JJ is the closest one to Victor tier jump wise. He has better stamina and ready to take risks. He gets the highest jump base value score without backloading. Kubo also hypes him around and makes him sound like the final boss (and he still, sort of. Even Victor says that Yuuri can't beat JJ with his older program composition. But changing FS components in just 2 weeks sounds like a bad idea). But yeah, with Miyano style acting and inflated ego it's hard to take him seriously.

I think JJ improved a lot after the previous season. Probably by the power of butthurtery after not placing on World's. But it's unclear whether JJ competed on Worlds or not. The only sign he competed on Worlds is that he is trying to befriend Otabek who debuted on World's.

Can't wait to see serious mode Chris. Chris is a huge threat from the start. He is Victor's old rival after all.

I don't know if I should take Otabek seriously as a threat when he gets his ass handled by a guy who can't quad at all and finished last at Cup of China. Also Dennis Ten.

WHAT IS THE TRUTH

>>150727997
I still don't get it. Did Yuuri buy just one ring and Victor had secretely buyed another before him? If not, why did he look so surprised in this part?

So Victor also didn't know of Yuri's feelings at this point? Burn.

What are the current points for the top six?
>>
>>150728641
Most likely. They were nearly plain golden bands from a high jewelry brand even the wedding markup. I could believe Yuuri would spend $4000 on maybe titanium rings.

That said, solid gold make shit rings though because it's a pretty soft metal. One good bang on it would dent/mark it up forever.

>>150728834
Please don't compare this stoic, noble Kazakh hero to Denis Ten.

JJ is a huge threat. So is Chris. Otabek is a total in know, maybe he's amazing but inconsistent. I don't think Yuri has tapped all of his potential though, so I believe he can win fairly even if the new program is a risk. He just needs to be in the right state of mind.
>>
>>150729030
Maybe it's a composite? So does that cover two rings cause the conversion is still super high in yen.

>>
>>150729187

>>
>>150729095
Not really.

It's obvious Yuuri bought both rings, it was a gift for Victor and a symbol of their relationship, romantic or otherwise. Yuuri was probably nervous and wasn't sure how Victor would react, so naturally he'd be a bit surprised and relieved when he sees his feelings are returned. He probably wasn't expecting Victor to put the ring on him.

From fujo detectives:

Yuri looked at three pairs of rings, yellow gold, rose gold, white gold/titanium. Yuri, like we all know, chose the yellow gold. The yellow gold ring is around 449 Euros for one ring only. If Yuri paid 760+ euros, he must have bought a set.

I just want to know or start some retarded discussion about how Yuuri's current state would fare against other medalist and what will the anime do to make Yuuri's victory actually satisfying without the 'his rivals got btfo but no we wont show it' like Gook or Taco.

Chris is a good guy that twerks on ice, he is no threat outside the rink and Victor is a pure maiden disguised as a slut so no I don't think he is manipulative.

>>150728738
Actually not having a name for certain feelings usually indicate that they are too complex for a simple label. So saying that he doesn't know how to categorize it is actually correct. If he knew they were romantic feelings he would imply they were. It's not that deep, senpai.

It was romantic love but it's obvious Yuuri was confused with it because he felt other types of love too. It's pretty important that what Yuuri and Victor share isn't like like passionate love ("koi") but a more complete and lasting love ("ai") which includes romantic love.

Question: Yurio wanted to skate Eros not because of "sexual love" but because he doesn't know what "unconditional love" is, right? Since Yuuri had Eros all along, does this mean Yurio will realize he had it or discover that Agape was the friend(s) you made along the way (in Barcelona)?

Het relationships can also be written in an interesting way, it's just that most people don't try. And it's the same with homo relationships in fiction, really, this one is just extremely good, but there's a lot of shit to wade through if you want to find something similar.
>>
>>150729837

It's less about het romance being boring and more like het romance has become stagnant. Authors keep making the same type of men and the same type of women and hardly break the mold with them.

It's also bad that most people think men and women cannot be friends, so they developt them quickly (and in cliche ways) because otherwise people are like "xD why aren't they married already".

Look at shipping wars in anime where 1 person is surrounded by people of the opposite gender. People assume that whoever doesn't end up with the hero/heroine "lost" and "must feel miserable" when in many cases everyone was having a good time and were not into the protag.

Kubo's complain about het romance root from this, people are like "why aren't they married already xD" instead of wanting to read a wholesome relationship.

And with smae-sex relationships people tell her "is forced" "is bait" no matter how much she tried. So YoI is probably a fuck you to that people.

>>150729827
Not that deep. He didn't want to skate Agape because it was a total 180 to his usual style. Doing routines like Agape requires vulnerability and emoting. Fairy's style is more dramatic and fast paced so he probably can do Eros on the count of the style and can fake it enough.

But there is a narrative going on related to the two dances. Yuuri with Eros is to gain confidence to get what he wants (the pure heart of a Russian slut) and Fairy with Agape is to learn to open up to others (which I think Otabek is meant to represent).

>It's also bad that most people think men and women cannot be friends, so they developt them quickly (and in cliche ways) because otherwise people are like "xD why aren't they married already".

People unironically think that if a girl and a boy talk too much or happen to touch it must be because they are into each other even if they just met.

In most cultures there's nothing wrong with touching people of the opposite gender, but Japanese and Americans think every touch is intimate.

Ending sequence for EP12 will be EP10 style, either GPF 2016 banquet or their wedding
>>
>>150730399
Phichit will win.
>>
>>150730435
I agree. I wanna see it already!
>>
>>150730405
Not just Japanese and American people, many people in the world. It's stupid and makes me feel like the writers are very immature when it comes to romantic relationships.
>>
>>150730399
Yuuri has some kind of emotional epiphany while doing his final routine. The last big jump he's never landed before is animated in slow motion. The ring gets visual focus during the performance in an outrageously romantic moment e.g. he kisses it or something.
Yurio is finally moved to tears by something or other, either Otabek or not winning gold (probably not dead grandpa)
Last episode ends on an extremely cute and fan-pleasing note.

>>150730147
I think there's a certain culture about male x female relationships in Japan too. Not related to YoI itself, but there is this game I've played in which the production team said they weren't sure in how to write a friendship between a girl a boy because it didn't really exist back in their days. Closer non-romantic relationships between a male and a girl seem to be a more recent thing.

We're gonna get that wedding anon. Yuuri has to win. Kubo made it too important to lose now.

He better win or Ciao Ciao won't let him watch his favourite movie again.

>5/5 Eros with ring shenanigans
>Fairy beginning to understand what Baldfat feel through his budding relationship with Otabek and so he apologizes to Viktor
>Phichit's ridiculous selfies
>JJ faggotry
>Otabek is crazy good
>Yuuri skating a perfect Yuri on Ice routine and landing that quad flip, Viktor unironically crying with happiness
>Yuuri wins, JJ gets BTFO
>love wins

I admit that those are mostly my wishes, not that I necessarily think will happen, but a) it's Kubo, so perhaps it'll be even better, b) meme magic, if we write about it enough times, it will happen.
>>
>>150730595
>implying the wedding won't happen anyway
>>
>>150730584
I'm expecting something really sexual for Eros performance too.
>>
>>150730435
Come on, Kubo, show us the wedding. You've teased it too much, you can't let us down now.
>>
>>150730399
Either Yuuri or Chris will win. The ending will be pics of BaldFat's marriage and their married life that didn't appear in the original ending.
>>
>>150730643
I don't think we'll seriously get a romantic relationship between Otabek and Yurio.

Apart from that, I agree.
>>
>>150730602
anyone have sauce for this one?

I bet Phichit takes really beautiful dick pics.

>>150730147
>Look at shipping wars in anime where 1 person is surrounded by people of the opposite gender. People assume that whoever doesn't end up with the hero/heroine "lost" and "must feel miserable" when in many cases everyone was having a good time and were not into the protag.

To be fair, the authors are guilty of this. I read harems that end with the girls still in love with the MC even after the MC chooses the girl and that shit is annoying. It doesn't help most cases, you very rarely see the losing girls in other relationships.
>>
>>150729369
That's how anxiety works, anon

>>150730726
I bet his dick is the biggest among the skaters.
>>
>>150730708
>Otabek/Yurio
Yeah, it would be way too sudden and feel like forced pandering to me.
They're cute enough as friends.
>>
>>150730708
I didn't necessarily mean a romantic relationship, just a really close friendship. From what we've been shown, Yurio doesn't have anyone like that, so getting a taste of what it's like to be close to someone could help him realize what Yuuri means to Viktor.
>>
I really want to see the last two episodes because I know they will be awesome but at the same time I don't want this to end and I know they'll make me cry like a bitch even if they're happy and funny as fuck.
>>
>>150730800
Life without YoI will be strange. It has grown on me too much, I don't know what to do.
>>
>>150730643
But Fairy and Otabek have only been friends for a day, I don't think they have gotten close enough that Fairy can start to understand where Victor is coming from. I think he'll probably feel inspired by him.

Who do you think will win above each? Yurio > Yuuri or Yuuri > Yurio?

Both scenarios will end horrible and I don't know how Yurio can get a redemption in such short time. If Yuuri wins over Yurio, he will be furious and lash at both about how their ruined his Senior debut. If Yurio wins over Yuuri, he will be an insuferable cunt about how Viktor is a shitty coach.

I don't even know who the development with Otabek can change these scenarios. There's barely any time.
>>
>>150730800
I don't want this ride to end. I think I'll be okay if they said that new episodes were delayed because of production fuck-ups or something and that's the first time I'm having thoughts like these.
>>
>>150730889
>If Yuuri wins over Yurio, he will be furious and lash at both about how their ruined his Senior debut.
He will get over himself eventually.
>>
>>150730889
Yurio will learn and grow if he loses, he still has a long way to go while this might be Yuuri's last chance. Yuuri will win and Yurio will have to accept it and move on.
>>
>>150730928
Yes. I want the ride to last just a bit longer.

12 episodes is just too short...
>>
>>150730889
Yurio will lose and he will get over it. He will be salty for a while, just like he is still lowkey salty about Onsen on Ice, but he did accept Yuuri's victory back then and he will accept it now. He does see Yuuri as a worthwhile opponent.
>>
>>150730399

JJ fucks up, Otabek inspires Yurio to some kind of emotional epiphany through his skating, Yuri wins and the last episode is them wrapping everything up with Victor and Yuri returning to Hasetsu and setting up their place.

Last ED is a bunch of pictures of some kind of undefined celebration where vaguely wedding-like things are happening but nothing is overtly stated.

But really, what the fujo talked about has already been covered in the previous threads.

Yeah don't do that, these threads are bad enough.

I have been here the whole time and I havent seen people bring that particular exchange, sorry

So they're never explicitly say they they live each other and/or kiss?
I know some of you think that it is not necessary for them to do that, but this is not a het. Like it or not, homo romance is not the norm, especially in anime, so some things have to be stressed.
If nothing else, an explicit, non hidden, not-treated-as-a-joke kiss on the lips would shut up the straightfags for good.
>>
>>150731262
Really? Pretty sure it has been talked before. When we first talked about Viktor crying at night after his advances got rejected by Yuri then Yuri didn't want to sleep with him?
>>
>>150731303

>shut up the straightfags for good.
The only people who care about doing this are autists on the internet, not the paying customers.
>>
>>150731303
But maybe it's JJ's wedding.
>>
>>150731323

I think the point anon was trying to make is that Yuuri took Viktor to the banquet hall of his own house and Viktor took it as "I'm gonna get bent over RIGHT HERE"
>>
>>150731323
it was Wednesday around 7 hours after airing or so I remember this thread
