>>151232191
The no. 6 anime has a slightly better excuse becuase the author has made it clear in the books and on her own that the two boys are gay. YOI doesn't even have that goign for it.
>>
The pair-skate was beautiful. Yurio winning gold by a sliver was lame, but I'm glad both Yuris placed. I am a leaf so I'm happy for JJ, even though I think his placement makes absolutely no sense. Never expected the gay to get full confirmation so I'm not buttblasted like all of you about the no-kissu.
>>
>>151232155
>Oh, but skating quality has been worse before. This is actually an improvement.
That just confuses me even more. Do people just close their eyes when the characters start skating and imagine boys fucking or something? How can you put up with that level of quality?
>>
>>151232348
At least they could have talk about there feelings for each other rather than skating. All they talked about was skating and winning. I understand that's the anime, but a "I want to stay together with victor b/c I like victor" is canon, "I want to stay together with victor b/c i love skaiting" is stupid.
>>
>>151232367
It makes it clear in the show they're already in love with each other, anon. "Ai", eros, their monologues, etc. People are being too dramatic.

They gave it an open ending and cut out a skating sequence. The finale was S2 bait instead of an actual ending.

>>
>>151232399
There are a few skates that have good quality. It's usually the irrelavant/minor characters who have the worst quality in the skating.

Also MAPPA is a modest studio and they have been suffering under time constraints. It's hard to animate that much movement in a small amount of time.

Other ancient authors have used forms of the word to denote love of a spouse or family, or affection for a particular activity, in contrast to philia (an affection that could denote friendship, brotherhood or generally non-sexual affection) and eros, an affection of a sexual nature.
In Christianity agape is considered to be the love originating from God or Christ for humankind.

That's not an excuse. That just says Yamamoto and Kubo didn't consider the realities of TV anime production when planning the series. I can admire the ambition in there, but that doesn't mean a sub-par result is acceptable.

>fujos getting this butthurt and defensive
It's not about how homo or not homo it was, it's about how the entire season you people were saying that this anime has a canon homosexual relationship when it was just flirting and bait. It's not about how they feel about each other, it's about them not kissing on screen, telling the other directly that they love him or doing other explicitly romantic stuff that confirms a relationship. Instead we got Yuuri and Victor being flirty and baity and a joke about marriage.
>>
It's bait if you want it to be bait and it's real if you want it to be real. Because any kind of 'love' confession was wrapped in weird skating metaphors ('be my coach', etc.), and even the kiss scene wasn't explicitly shown, there's an air of deniability about it.
I don't really know why this was kept up. I'm not really into shipping but I think the show would have been better if it truly acknowledged that Victor and Yuri were in a romantic relationship. It went too far to be a regular fujobait show and not far enough to be a real romance.
>>
>>151233828
Are you retarded?

In the show, Yuuri and Victor both mention that they know love because of each other, this among other things like them wanting to seduce the other. It's not about interpretation, it's in the fucking show.
>>

Good post OP.
There was never dicussion of feelings. The anime had little other good qualities to make it interesting ther than the flirtty relationship.
>>
>>151233905
>it's real if you want it to be real
Literal definition of what bait is. It's only real if you "believe" the author can at any moment say "I'm kidding".
>>
>>151233890
Do you need every fucking thing spelled out for you? They love each other, they want to be together, they already do explicitly romantic stuff.
>>
>>151233890
You are not able to be subtle uh? Clearly in this episode Victor hinted Yuuri must win a gold medal before their relation can go further. But this doesn't make their relation less real. You are only too much childish and you need blatant dialogues to get the stuff.
>>
>>151233573
They kissed: Haha I was just doing it to surprise you!

Rings: Good Luck(TM) rings.

Pair skating: They like skating or something who knows.

It's not an uncommon thing in bait. You have to rely on 'context' and 'subtext' to see the relationship as irrevocably gay. That makes it bait.

Yes you do have to rely on context because Japan is always fucking like this. Even shoujo shit and canon het pairings in anime beat around the bush all the time. Hell, they don't even get as intimate as much as Yuuri and Victor do, with all the cuddling and hugging.

>>151234006
>>151234051
Can you not read? I never denied their feelings for each other, but fans need to stop praising their relationship when the writer never had courage to make it actually happen and have an anime that isn't primarily BL but has 2 men in a romantic relationship.

Yes, we saw them being close to each other and flirting but the writer dodged the main thing.
>>
>>151234051
>>151234120
>Clearly in this episode Victor hinted Yuuri must win a gold medal before their relation can go further
I'm pretty sure that was Victor's flirting. He teased Yuuri about a kiss too.
>>
>>151234200
No. Het pairings are usually very clear. Take any canon het pairing. It's pretty clear it's het. if you're saying this is canon it has to be clear.
>>
>>151233640
It doesn't seem like a proper ending. This whole episode is telling people to catch up their sequel.
>>
>>151234120
I am not even a fujo, but his flirt was real. Of course he didn't mean they can't date. But career before marriage. Their love is blatant. If you need a kiss to see it you are only childish.
>>
>>151234269
Not always. But people know they're romantic when they do romantic things because they're a girl and boy. So it seems "clear", but many times I've seen canon het pairings not even kiss.

They wont show any kisses and no one will confess again. Japan has you by the tits.
>>
>>151234200
The fact that it's Japan is no excuse.

There are plenty of legit LGBT-inclusive shows with confirmed relationships like Wandering Son, Aoi Hana, even No. 6, but they just happen to have really mediocre writing.

And it's not just a Japan exclusive thing either. It's how Western bait works as well, forcing people to use 'context' to justify what the writers dodges around.
>>
>>151234266
I didn't explain myself very well. It was teasing but his teasing and flirt is already in a love relationship context. It's not bait.
>>
>>151234335
Often het pairings don't kiss. This is true. I wouldn't care if victor and yuri never kissed. But het pairings are always clear b/c they say things that make it clear they are together. Yuri and Victor never said anything and ever gay action was played off as a joke. I cannot call that canon.
>>
>>151224851
Japan with another bait show whew

Never mind about watching this
>>
>>151234335
I think OP means when they compete with other het pairings like in harems. It's hard to tell which one is canon.

Nope. It's a comedy so a lot of scenes are supposed to be either cute or funny. But there are also many genuine and even dramatic scenes between them, like while Yuuri is thinking about him while skating his FS, the carpark scene, the airport scene, etc. It's not a joke.
>>
>>151234470
Then in that case it's not actually canon until the end. But if you want to say the victor yuri is canon it has to have the same level of canon as end game harem or any other het pairing, which is does not. There is ovbious bait and chemistry between them but it is not canon.

What the fuck does bait even mean.

The character are clearly in love with each other, kissed, exchanged promise ring, filtrs, don't have wedding rings, the author supports it, but somehow it's "bait"?

Are people shitposting or are legitimately retarded?

"Woah, they didn't kiss again I guess every other interaction is now meaningless. "
>>

Same here. A lot of these people weren't going to believe them anyway. People will try to no homo anything so there's not much use trying.

Kubo/Yamamoto set up the whole show to do a whole 'appear as bait but subverted at last minute' thing but they didn't follow through. This makes it bait.
>>
>>151234700
I don't know what else to tell you. Some people just have to believe in "their perfect show". When they kissed it was "a surprise", when they exchanged rings it was a "good luck charm". When sales drop b/c fujos are broke it's going to be "Just kidding they were never gay, thats gross".
>>
>>151224851
This is why I never understood why people always beg for additional seasons when they could have had just one satisfying season and leave it at that.

The longer shit gets prolonged the more they have to stretch it out to keep people wanting more. You only have yourself to blame for your high expectations. In the end they just want your money and that's all.
>>
>>151234700
Frankly, I think I've seen it all now. "Bait" now means anything less than explicit onscreen sex and a marriage ceremony. People still try to say Kawoshin or Nezumi/Shion aren't romantic when they had a confession and onscreen kiss respectively so whatever.
>>
>>151234672
>YoI
>mature anything, let alone romance
Now that's some next tier delusion. It's a bloody gag anime, and terribly written at that.
>>
>>151234815
That doesn't make those actions less romantic.
>>
>>151234855
But see, kawoshin and nezushi are not bait. Becuase they TALK to each other and explicitly say things like "I love you". Victori and Yuri's interactions were mostly monologues in there heads and fake out kisses.
>>
>>151234880
This. People are taking it too seriously.

>>151234941
it doesn't make it canon or revolutionary if everything can be taken back as a joke.

>>
>>151235023
It's not a joke. They were especially serious about the kiss scene. You don't hold a gaze like that afterwards if it's not romantic. It being a "surprise" doesn't make it less romantic.

If those two aren't in a canon relationship next season, that would be just absolute bullshitting with us.

>>151235237
Eh. I guess my only complaint is that I felt that yoi/ the yoi fandom promissed and expected more than just a cute anime.

The way it developed in first half of the season it made it seem like it would be really good and the best. I'm just underwhelmed it didn't become the "perfect anime" like it promissed. End the fact is, it sort of promissed an explicitly gay ending and the was more ambigious.

If it just marketed itself as a cute anime I'd have so many less problems.

To be fair, there was nothing ambiguous about OnS's sucking scene. Flesh was penetrated, blood was drunk, Yuu came in his pants, Shinoafags filled mass graves with their fat-thighed deluded selves. It was a masterpiece compared to the "interpretation" dance most common in fujobait shows.

The reason people are hypercritical is because this shitty fanbase spent weeks making threads about how you WERE GOING TO GET MARRIAGE and laughing about how you TRIGGERED /A/ OH SO BAD!!.

The context of this is that she was getting swamped by tweets and probably harassment, she did that to shut up both sides. Maybe not the most satisfying move, but whatever. She already confirmed on her twitter beforehand.

No, she didn't. She said "I'm not going to force my interpretation of that scene on anyone" which it's probably a nice way to tell you to stop getting triggered by homolust. How the fuck do you even read that scene as a hug unless everyone in that world was hit with mass amnesia. SURPRISE HUG.

Yoi is gay.
>>
>>151236148
But actual canon homo relationships in non-BL anime are extremely rare, that's why just implications and "show, don't tell" aren't enough to confirm. Also I should note that I don't care whether they are in a relationship or not, I believe they love each other, but my point is that the writer/director pussied out.
>>
>>151236240

I guess having the rings made them think there would be an eventual wedding. I knew there wasn't going to be implied sex scene when they censored that kiss as hard as they did.

I don't know why anyone expected Yuuri to win gold either. That would mean Fairy would have to fail pretty hard which would have made it a cheap gold anyways.

Apparently they were, because nobody even teases Yuuri and Victor about being lovers. There is the scene where Phichit says they're married after he sees the rings, but nobody mentions that "kiss" ever again.

Can't we just discuss the show without jumping on every idiot that comes in thread and claims YOI was nothing but fujobait?

The very fact that two male characters actually flirted with one another without pulling the whole 'b-but we're both guys!' schtick should prove that they were *actually* homo and that it wasn't just fujobait, even if their relationship wasn't explicitly stated.

Not to mention that it's a show airing in Japan, of course the writers wouldn't be able to just out and have them make out and have sex in a vat of oil or whatever the fuck it is you faggots wanted.

They literally outspokenly admit they're from tumblr too. Unsurprisingly, since all they do in other threads is shitpost while blog posting in their own. No wonder everyone hates fujoshits, if they just stayed in their already out-of-context blogposting threads at least we could ignore them.

OK but can BaldFat shippers stop being so salty over no kissu? Yuuri gave Victor back to the skating world, said he wants to be with Victor forever even as competitors and literally followed Victor all the way to Russia just to be with him. They're still wearing their rings and most probably live together in Victor's apartment. What more do you want?

Must be easy to argue when you can declare every scene "gay pandering".

Also it's fun that people think "gay pandering" means the character couldn't be gay. Do people think the author is playing some sort of 4D chess for them? Is there any reason Kubo would trick you?

I don't know what's worse.

600€ wedding rings that they exhanged while blushing in front at a church with at their fingers and kiss and exchanged are not romantic, Gotcha. These characters are obviously straight.

as much as I lol'd that JJ got bronze, it was the only part of the episode I'm slightly butthurt about. I'm rationalizing that they did it so as not to undermine how strong JJ's sk8game was up until last episode.

I know people don't have good reading comprehension from where you are, but it's pretty hard to ignore the tone of the scenes you're arguing.

The rings were literally a thank you from Yuri to Victor before he splits up with him in the finale. That is the textual explanation and is further back up by their vas.

Of course they're going to fucking wear them. Of course they are going to cherish them. It represents their time together. That is enough 'ambiguity' to declare that they are not canon gay, as in romantically together. As in a couple.

There is no indication they are dating eachother by the end of this show.

This. I expected a non-obstructed one to happen, especially since Medo-chan seemed happy when she asked Kubo if there would be a kiss.

I know a kiss doesn't automatically mean confirmation but it's the least they could do when it's obvious they're gay as fuck.

There's really no excuse for it. As in, there's not even logical justification. Anyone willing to spend a cent on this series is desperate for more, and will double the money if they get it. I can't fathom the reasoning behind holding back, who are they afraid of offending? Homophobes don't care about regular yaoi, why would they care about this? People on the fence about homo would've dropped it long ago. Everyone left is in love with Baldfat and just want to see them together as a happy couple.

They're so beautiful together and they deserve better. They don't need a kiss to prove that they're canon, but the lack is so conspicuous if you just think of it as a regular romance series. It's jarring as fuck in het romance too, if they don't wrap it up with a kiss or confession.
>>
The whole thing was basically handled like that ambiguous kiss we got. Anyone who expected anything obvious after that was delusional. If they wanted to show, they would have shown. And then it would be a niche shonen-ai show with no chance of ever becoming popular/mainstream. Just what the studio wants, right?

Still, if you want to believe, the show is the gayest thing ever.

If you don't want to believe, it was all just about skating with some fujobait thrown in.

To be honest, I feel like Kubo and Mappa didn't expect this level of success and support. Homo still trigger people even if the animu itself it's cleared not anime at them. The fact that they basically kissed in episode 7 pretty much sealed the deal of them not kissing again until season 2 episode 5.

>>
>>151239384
I don't think it's bait either but they could have gone further, it's like they're scared of actually fully confirming it and it ended up looking ambiguous for people who don't want to see the gay.

That's why to me it's still not a game changer, until a show comes where they leave no room open for interpretation in their relationship then it'll still look like fujobait.

They kissed.

Most anime relationships do less stuff than this. Remember when the Clannadmad kissed his waifu in the aniime? Yeah, me neither and those two were married and had a kid.

Remember when Ryuji kissed Taiga and then she left for two years? Who, I guess the author non-hetero'd that one.

Seriously, the double standards and the amount of crazy analysis people go for some homo pandering is fucking exhausting. I'm not even sure why I bother, after No.6.

And there is nothing wrong about framing their relationship as coach/student and future rivals given the much the show ties the character development with the skating numbers and literally puts everything once ice.

I mean, if you actually think these characters are straight and Yuuri is going to end up with female character n.2 then be my guess, but it seems a bit delusional to me.

Eh, its not fair to compare battle/action shows with dramas
You expect a focus on interpersonal relationships in dramas, so avoiding physical signs of affection is a bit odd.
>>
>>151239825
There were plenty of psychical signs of affection, though. Of course people just dismiss it as "fanservice". As if fanservice can't be part of a relationship.

Also Toraradora and Clannad are both romances.
>>
>>151239653
It just feels like they're milking their romance with that cliffhanger of an ending.
>>
>>151239611
Broadcast television needs metaphors for dicks. There's always going to be subtext for that reason, you can't get much more blatant than what they showed. Kiss, rings, tears, hugs, blushing, "stay with me", dancing, be my coachi. There's enough there that buttsex and "I love you" shouldn't be necessary.
>>
>>151239909
They are. They're milking the fans. I can't see how they would end it on a note so weak if it was really just going to be one season.
>>
>>151239909
The entire episode felt like a sequel hook, so yeah.

Unfortunately, I kind of saw this coming when I saw that MAPPA was excited about making a second season. Literally no one wraps up a romance conclusively when there's going to be more. That's why romances in ongoing TV shows are always full of will they or won't they shit

This is why I wish fujos crying about wanting a season 2 would shut the fuck up. You can kiss good resolution and a relationship goodbye.
>>
I'm going to have mixed feelings about this series and what the intentions of the authors were and how I should interpret it until S2, but episode 10 is honestly one of the most satisfying episodes of fujo anime ever. I could watch just that episode forever and pretend like everything after it never happened.
>>
>>151240104
This is exactly what I was afraid about and why I wanted it to end with Yuuri and Victor getting married and maybe retiring. It should have just ended.
>>
>>151240247
Episode 10 was one of the best episodes of the show. It's why the subsequent ending really felt weak.
>>
I don't know what was so hype about this. I give it a 6/10.
>>
I'm sort of split on being happy that we'll be getting another season of homo skate, and being disappointed that the ending of this season was shoehorned into being a cliffhanger. Maybe I slightly prefer having no continuation, only a solid one season show.

Does the final scene leave any possibly other than them being 10000% gay for one another?
>>
>>151240316
The ending was weakened by episode 7 a lot more than episode 10. Ep 7 felt like a finale in itself, the kiss and fight were so perfectly done and it could've easily made for an amazing climax to the series.

>>151240444
This. Sometimes less is more.

MAPPA's busy with idolshit next season, but there's nothing stopping them from releasing an OVA of shit we wanted to see but didn't get. Domestic BaldFat, downtime with other skaters, behind-the-scenes shit, Makkachin being the best dog, whatever. They won't sit on their asses until whenever they can fit in a proper second season. This is MAPPA's first big sensation and they're going to capitalize on it.

It's not uncommon for OVAs to basically be fanservice, so calm your tits and wait for it. And for the love of god stop replying to "it was a no-homo ending neener neener!" posts.

Why do people like Victor again? He's annoying, has a five head, is balding, and is settling for some piggy that'll probably lose his shape after he wins the gold. His prime was when he had long hair, and that's long gone.

So what's wrong with that? If she was confirmed bi I'd be all over that, since there aren't many of those. Is she only likes girls then that's great too.

And don't at like fujos aren't above that "s/he could be bi" shit too.

I can't wait for Season 2, when they all get girlfriends! A mother would be so proud of the woman who brought home a fine upstanding man like that.

Unlike how disappointed she is in you.

When did Victor tell Yuuri to his face he loves him outside of skating? When did Yuuri tell Victor that?
>>
>>151241533
Jesus christ, are we even watching the same show? Every relationship in the show is framed in the ice skating scenes, Michelle literally breaks up and leaves his feeling behind for his sister by SKATING.
>>
>>151241533
Victor monologues about how Yuuri showed him life and love after he left competitive skating. We didn't get too much of Yuuri's POV in the episode, but we got the banquet reveal, which showed how Victor's attraction first happened through drunken dancing and shenanigans.

Anyway much of the episode is just them going on a sightseeing date in Barcelona and generally acting like a couple outside of skating.

But even the background romantic relationships on the show are framed on the ice. It's not exclusive to Baldfat, it's the way the show is.

I swear the ice skating was drawn once (expect for when a skater fucks up the routine) and it was just overlaid on different backgrounds for the different locales.

Just like my pokeymans.
>>
>>151241485
It will still be ambiguous shit but the fujobait levels will be higher and there won't be any girlfriends.

People just need to admit the show was still ambiguous fujobait. That's it. I don't know why people need to pretend their shows are somehow more highbrow than they really are.

>People just need to admit the show was still ambiguous fujobait. That's it. I don't know why people need to pretend their shows are somehow more highbrow than they really are.

The real question is why some people are so adamant to admit the two leads are fags and in love with each others.

Half of the narrative doesn't work if you don't assume Victor is in love with Victor and Yuuri doesn't have feeling for Victor.

What's going to happen? They already kissed, they are not going to get girlfriends in the end. Do you THINK they could get girlfriends?

Do people even realize what "bait" means anymore?

Hibike is the very definition of bait because the "gay" scenes are completely detached from the characters, these girls talk about love and then spend half of the episode about wanting to fuck their professor.

Yuuri gives Victor a wedding ring and half of his skating sequences are about his sexual awakening tanks to Victor.
