Quick question about the Blu Ray

Can anyone explain why exactly there are 6 "volumes" of it? Is each disc only 2 episodes? Do they expect us to pay $60+ for 2 episodes of this anime, and then repeat 6 times?

I've never ordered a physical copy like this before, so I'm not really understanding.

Anime studios don't compress video quality for physical releases, so each disc only contains about two episodes. The blu-ray usually also contains some sort of special extras (a booklet, bonus shorts, etc) and quite often, sloppy animation that was rushed out for the broadcast release will be cleaned up and re-drawn.

Is it dumb? Yes. But it's just become an accepted practice in Japan. Anime is a stupidly expensive hobby over there.

I have a pretty strong suspicion Georgi will not be back for S2, and if he will be most likely it'll be a gag cameo.

On a more positive note, what new characters would you like to see introduced S2?

The more I rewatch the more I'm convinced Viktor doesn't actually want to return to competitive skating. He may have started to consider it after how Yuuri made him feel in EP11. But his faces talking of his return in EP12 look all sad and empty, the smiles are very fake. It was clearly his first step into convincing Yuuri to not retire.

I think Kubo is gonna punish the fandom.
>>
>No "does russia have a drinking culture?" cap

I think they were sad smiles because he thought Yuuri would retire, if Yuuri's not on the ice Victor just isn't as enthused.

Was there ever an explanation as to why Mickey and Sara never went into pair skating? I know that they've gone through their "we need to be independent and live our own lives to be fulfilled" development now, but when they were full on clingy shits why no pair skating?
>>
>>151435915
Cute!
>>
>>151435384

That pretty much means he has zero will to return on his own and it's only doing it to please Yuuri because he thinks (and has chosen that) returning to the ice the best for Viktor

Holy shit Viktor why you don't speak your mind

Do you think that Viktor and Georgi celebrate their birthdays together for convenience?

So how high are the chances of S2 opening on the beginning of a brand new season, with Victor having reestablished his world records and Baldfat not having evaluated their relationship at all because they're autists?
>>
>>151437165
Their friends would probably appreciate it.

>>151437210
Sadly quite high.

It think it'll open with Worlds and then jump to a time skip since Victor wants Yuuri to be a world champ. They did it in episode one with the GPF and then time skipped 3 months.

>>151437261
I see Piggy winning another silver to Victor's gold if it goes for thst setup.

Not sure, but I want to see Baldfat's relationship become increasingly bizarre as they get more and more serious and still don't talk about it. It would be hilarious.
>>
>>151437362
At this stage, what will it take for Yuuri to stop being in denial? What will it take for Victor to actually express how he truly feels?

>>151435257
I actually initially read the silver medal scene as "jk returning is so much work it's not like I can do both. I'm still staying with you, just make it up to me ten fold." But then the announcer at the exhibition said he's returning. I dunno, my dumbass confused itself.

Probably Viktor point blank telling him, in a way which can not be mistaken for a joke. Not sure how that would happen, though, given Viktor's own insecurities.

What a douchebag and shallow thing to say. It’s not being into some yaoi. Into some piggy ass. It’s about BALDFAT. YURI!!! ON ICE is BALDFAT. THE STORYLINE THAT WE DEEPLY CARE ABOUT IS BALDFAT. THIS WHOLE PHENOMNON IS BALDFAT. Baldfat is not just some enterteining ship created by fandom on a whim to satisfy some primal fangirl needs or whatever the hell is implied in that shitty confession. Baldfat is an epic, unique, unclassified relation of two separately fascinating autismos who function as individuals but who after meeting each other were bonded for life and each influenced the other so powerfully that they both started to transform not only growing as Hitlers but THAT EROS started to evolve forming them into this one itentity. In the opening there are so many symbols about that: Victor's nipples, drunken pole dancing reshaping them into new, changed people is that bond exaclty. They are not just some ship dammit. They are BALDFAT, the basis for the whole story, the essence of the whole story and clearly someone behind this confession doesn’t get THE PHENOMENON or else he/she wouldn’t be making such statements.

Victor needs to tell Yuuri that he wants to be with him even if they both retire from skating. They need to talk about plans after retirement, Yuuri can stay at it for a while longer but Victor really will have to retire in a year or two.

>>
>>151437759
>>151437820
Why the fuck does Victor have such a problem with this?
>>
>>151437910
Liftime of avoiding relationships, YOU DON'T HAVE TO SAY ANYTHING JUST STAY BY MY SIDE, he thinks his actions express his love clearly, Piggy is shy and speaks in metaphors so Victor learned to adapt or get faced with NONONONO, Victor's own natural autism. Take your pick, there are a lot of reasons.
>>
>>151437910
Insecure? He's probably tied things to skating too much and is afraid of what their relationship would be like without it? Granted when they're both retired there will be an adjustment period.
>>
>>151437910
Because, under his charming celebrity persona, he's just as shit as dealing with people on a personal level as Yuuri is. This is the autist who made his whole life about much skating. He still tried to make it work anyway after falling for Yuuri only for Yuuri to reject him in a rather bluntly, screaming NOOOO when he tried to have a sleepover with him despite being all over him during that banquet. Then Yuuri kept sending him mixed signals and Viktor was probably too scared to get rejected outright again - remember that he threw away his entire life for this guy - so he acted as flirty as possible and waited for Yuuri to make his move. A big mistake.
>>
Now that Yamamoto knows people love episode 10 and there is no longer any reason to hide Piggy's semen demon side, I hope she raises the eroticism in the next season.

I hope she also raises the Baldfat level. Wasn't the banquet ED her idea?

I don't believe this. So far every episode has either developed the relationship or shown it from a different angle (even if sometimes, the new angle meant depicting either Viktor or Yuuri as Hitler). They seem to be adamant on giving us new, fresh things, so logically the relationship can only grow even if there will be setbacks.

I'm excited for Russian SOL antics with Victor, Yuri, Yurio, Georgi, Mila, and Otabek. The potential.
I hope Otabek tries to get Yurio to go on more bikerides with him but the rest of them also want in. I think Georgi would have the best reaction to riding on a motorcycle.

I really wanna know more about whether or not Otabek's a real gearhead like we tend to assume. Is that his only bike? Does he have multiple bikes? Is he a car guy too? I want to know, dammit.

This is why we need an infobook.

>>151439304
I wouldn't even mind if season 2 for Fairy is him ice skating, being embarrassed by his gay dads, and developing a huge crush on Bike but thinking it's normal feelings people have for their friends while it's painfully obvious to everyone else (aside from Bike who thinks Fairy is like Victor and a flirty person by nature)
>>
>>151439425
Me too, Russia is the ideal setting just as Hasetsu was the ideal setting for the first season. It was good that they only had each other to focus on in Japan, but now that their relationship has grown, it can only benefit from presence of other people. Plus the Russians are all awesome.
>>
I for one am curious how Fairy and Piggy's relationship will develop. I don't have any delusions about Fatfairy (nor do I want it), but now that it's confirmed that Fairy admires Piggy, I wonder how will things go with the two of them on the same rink. Maybe they can even team up occasionally to tease Viktor now that he's a competitor too and some friendly rivalry can be expected?

Gook is pretty much guaranteed S2 given his screen time in the final episode (and copious undeserved merch), honestly I think he'll probably grow into a more likeable character.

YoI inspired me to visit the gym again.

I'm a bit more motivated in a weird way. I'm telling myself that if season 2 airs in some years, like for example in 2018 or more, I should study and work hard to earn a lot of money to be able to buy the BD of the first season before so I can rewatch it and some official merchandises like that Victor figurine I'm really looking forward to. I want to be able to watch season in a comfy way, I want to watch it on a big screen and not on my shitty laptop with a shitty internet connection. Seeing the terrible western fandom that complains about queerbaiting all the time, thinks people who ship Otabek/Yurio are automatically pedophiles and their shitty tumblr fanarts make me want to study Japanese harder so I can stick to the Japanese fanbase instead, too. I already do but I can't read well enough yet. And I had a really shitty semester, and watching yoi every Wednesday made me less depressed.

In a way I would say so. I used to figure skate and play hockey, but it was bittersweet as I wasn't endowed with the skills as other kids my age, since I was clumsy and overweight, so I got hurt a lot.
But, seeing Yuuri and his childhood with skating is encouraging. Since I finished university, so I may take up skating again as a hobby.

Have some fluff in return, anon.

This. I've really sharpened up on my moon since the season began.

Never have I been so motivated to BTFO the English-speaking fan base. Whilst the 'Western mainstream' popularity is great in terms of exposure = money = more content, I shudder to think of the Western fanbase in any way being recognized by the creators.

Dallas is going to be a shit show, and I'm not even a burger.

Thank god 90+% of the money still comes from the Nips or I'd really start to despair on humanity.

Maybe it's because I'm old but why the fuck do people have to read into it so hard? What enjoyment can anyone get out of sociopolitically analysing something to this degree, especially anime, for christ's sake.

I can only assume that most of the people making this kind of commentary are for the majority clueless to (sic)'otaku culture' and/or mainstream anime in general if they are trying to rationalize a social message out of a seasonal anime.

I'm not /pol/, but it hasn't been until now that SJWs have actually managed to trigger me.

Straight relationships are boring at this point cause there's already so many stories and everyone keeps using the same tropes. Even when they try to do something a little different at first, everything falls into the roles and rules that has been used since the beginnning of story telling. I rarely see good romance, gay or not.

When it's gay though, yuri or yaoi doesn't matter, you can actually put your charas in unconventional roles and give them distinct personalities.

They're not just the guy or the girl, guy having his manly roles and duties, girl having hers. Same old, boring things over and over again.

They're pretty self-centered, they tend to complain about cultural appropriation a lot but don't give a fuck if they interpret an anime wrong because they see everything through their American point of view.

No. Tropes are boring. There are tropes in all romance genres, BL included.

YOI worked so well because it was fresh from all angles, it wasn't trying to replicate any particular type of romance, and integrated it with a novel sport in a way that felt genuine.

I think it's because ep 7 happened so early. If they'd finished on that kiss, I think people would have been way happier.

As it was, it made us think, "hey, if we're getting this now, maybe we'll get a visible kiss at the end!" and then we didn't. It just seemed kinda weird having that one kiss and then never again.

But whatever, they were obviously super gay.

Am I wrong to assume, with the length his hair grew, that the end of EP12 was a time skip to the next year? which would fit the time frame if S2 will indeed be Fall 2017?

I'd love confirmation that Yuuri lives in Victor's home in StPetersburg. And then show he only has one big bed there (I remember he also has a sofa, but it always occupied by Maccachin)

>>151444586
I think the ending where Yuuri and Victor are pair skating on that love song between two dudes is supposed to have the same effect as having a final kiss in the last episode. A second kiss could have been a bit redundant, too.

But some people legit think it's not gay if we don't see them french kissing with a close up on their mouths or even more. Not just hetfags, even people who want yoi to be the best LGBT representation in anime. It's crazy.

This is what triggered me so badly about /a/'s reaction to the final episode. It was beautiful.

Sure rushed and came a left-field from the ending most were expected, but in terms of baldfat's relationship I couldn't think how it could have been expressed better. For whatever reason the Nips understood this but the tumblrtards/delusional fujos here didn't.

People expecting a Doukyuusei kiss need to BTFO, because it will NEVER happen in YOI. I'll be honestly surprised if we get an onscreen kiss at all, and honestly I'm okay with that given how well they've handled expressing BaldFat's relationship and intimacy without face mashing.

I wouldn't be surprised of ep7 is slightly changed so we see Yuuri's and Victor's mouths touching in the BD but I'm not expecting it. I think western fans are too used to either actual BL were the main characters french kiss and have sex all the time or to western shows where couples kiss all the time too.

>>151444801
>but in terms of baldfat's relationship I couldn't think how it could have been expressed better
Maybe by not having them avoid their communications problems by simply kicking the ball down further?

From what I saw here people weren't nearly as mad about a lack of kiss as they were abour the hotel conversation, the writing of Victor's decision, and just the writing overall. I liked the pair skate but I see where the others complaining that the episode left them unable to feel it were coming from.

I have big concern about S2 direction in general. Sayo and Kubo had 4 years for planning YoI as it was. It included a lot of researches of skating world, finding talented yet unknown musicians and designers. They also had no any pressure from fanbase.

Now they have how much time? A year?

Besides it was a same sex pair skate with lifts and intimate caresses, that doesn't happy in reality. It's quite bold actually and it's amazing people don't realize it. That Christmas on Ice performance with Lambiel and Takahashi is as close as it gets and they barely touched.
>>
>>151445190
What did she mean by this?
>>
>>151445168
Well, Kubo did mention at the beginning that she would love, love to do more of this, so perhaps she already had some idea on how to continue at that point. Who knows, maybe the same amount of time won't be needed.

No I agree with anon. The usual man/woman roles are boring but that's entirely the writer's fault for buying into tired cliches because none of those have to be used if they don't want to. There's nothing preventing straight shit from using unconventional roles or distinct personalities if writers wanted, there's room to move just as much as any other kind of romance.

Crazy SJW requirements aside, much as the pair skate was beautiful it's not actually the same as a concrete, serious confirmation from either the creators or the characters. Until that happens deniers are not entirely wrong, Mappa has purposely left them a handhold.

I don't see the problem with wanting confirmation anyway, it won't take away from the pair skate.

I dunno. I didn't really think far past that point.
>>
>>151445428
Yeah, confirmation would be nice, but deniers are delusional at this point. The backbone of the whole story is Yuuri and Viktor's love, even the skating is medium to express that. You have to be willfully blind and do some serious mental gymnastics to reject that.

Personally I do too, but that's just it, a personal judgement. The reality is actually purposely ambiguous, even if the implications are very strong.

More than confirmation or kissy, what I want is exploration of their faults in dealing with each other so as to build their relationship stronger, and for them to affirm their feelings for each other outside of skating metaphors. I don't know how much I can hope for this.
>>
>>151445595
See you next level, anon! But seriously, I expect this will happen in season 2, one way or another.
>>
>>151445520
I don't get why deniers are even watching. Whether Bladfat is confirmed or not is irrelevant- they are never going to deny it. This is a fujo show for fujo that actively encourages speculations and for the audience to make leaps and guesses about their relationship. Its like the deniers who use the "that doesn't count because its fujobait" line have missed the point. Yuri on Ice isn't a show thats seeking to boost his fanbase by throwing scraps at fujos- its a show literally made for fujos where the deniers get their "good luck charm" scraps sometimes.
>>
>>151445520
Yeah, but it's still a matter of the gymnastics being very extremely unlikely rather than flat out wrong.

There's a pleasure to be had in certainty, too.
>>
>>151445595
Could be that s1 was just more revolved around them developing their coach/skater relationship while becoming closer and more intimate and falling into deeper feelings/realizing love for the first time, then given the progression of things, it'd make sense for s2 to further that relationship.
Plus, it'd be a good way to keep surprising us and you know how KuboSayo like to do that.
>>
Anyone else hope that next season Baldfat will have to deal with some fans, maybe a small scandal? There must be lots of fans that want to know what the deal is between them. Fairy's fans followed him around and him leaving with Otabek went viral. Victor was said to have over a million fans but we only saw a bit of them. I don't want drama but seeing them try to avoid a crazy fan or the press and having Yuuri deal with dating Russia's most eligible bachelor might be fun.

>>151445724
>its a show literally made for fujos where the deniers get their "good luck charm" scraps sometimes.
Not to mention how they reverse baited in the very first episode, kek.

People just aren't used to this kind of anime. Baldfat and their scenes are clearly past the line of simply "fujobait" considering the way it is literally ingrained into the story and how their relationship slowly deepens, but it's not quite over the solid finish line so to speak, at least not yet.
People are only used to either one or other, but mostly the former.

So people, especially westerners, have a very hard time trying to put things into perspective.
>>
>>151445892
Somebody needs to ask them what they're going to do after retirement. Victor can choreograph and coach since he's building some experience now but Yuuri is the question mark, will he run the hot spring or do something else since he has a degree? Will he stay in the skating world?

He's already the deuteragonist, and he just bit off a lot in in this episode, possibly more than he can chew.

Is it too much for me to hope that season 2 will be his side of the story, so to speak? There's no longer any need to keep his motivations secret, KuboSayo can finally think deeply about him and develop him fully.
>>
>>151445928
You can't blame them. For all the bullshit "Yuri on Ice is something entirely new" claims, it really is the first anime I can think of (that isnt straight up BL) that is purposfully laser focused on the fujo audience and treats others as less important. Espeically in the sports genre which notoriously throws minimal scraps at the audience that funds it.

>I'm okay with that given how well they've handled expressing BaldFat's relationship and intimacy without face mashing.

What relationship? Ep 12 proved they don't have an established one yet. The ice dancing was pretty and cute and all but it left me feeling nothing after what happened between them prior in the episode. Like Yuuri'a last line, the ice dance shows they still have nothing as a couple outside the ice because autism.

Whereas a casual small kiss would've made me believe they did have an established relationship that didn't rely on being coach and skater and only that.
>>
>>151444527

I think that why I love baldfat so much and satisfied with their pair . Beside them reminded me to other two my fav couple jacob/fox from cornelia funke's mirrorworld and therese/carol
Frist couple they never told their love each other or kiss or do anything but they know their love each other from their heart , later couple have kiss and sex but it never come as "look at us we are lesbian , we are in love " and in the end their relationship just start like baldfat

Exactly. Sports anime usually revolves around the "power of friendship" only with maybe a few shippy scenes but it's mostly just fujos putting them into more romantic scenarios because cute boys.

But in this anime, it's /literally/ the "power of LOVE" and putting Yuuri and Victor into as many obvious romantic scenarios as possible, fujos don't have to do most of the work this time.

Hell, when most of the ship fanart is even based on/redraws of canon scenes, that should tell you something.

> he thinks it's about video quality

If you want your disks to be compatible with most players (and don't loose money you spent manufacturing them), you need to obey the standards (I don't think serious companies would even work with non-standard content because they can't guarantee that results aren't broken by some hard to notice bug). One of the standards defines that video should have a maximum bitrate of 40 Mbps, with short occasional spikes above that (that should fit into decoder buffer, which size is also defined). So, if their greed made them sell disks with only 12 minutes of an episode for 100 dollars, it wouldn't look any different from current ones.

Two or three episodes without extra content can't even fill the whole 25 GBs on single layer BDs.

I don't know about those other two shows but the thing about No.6 is that it was also based off a light novel that already had them going explicitly romantic, so people going into the anime could (or should) have expected it to happen.

Yuri on Ice is an anime original. Actual homo just doesn't happen in stuff like this, so it's still one of a kind.

>>151446536
The staff themselves have pointed out Yuuri's issues before, the same ones people have been complaining about here. The anime itself also points how that Victor can be selfish. There's a foundation there.
>>

That's just a coincidence but I do wonder if Yuuri and Victor were at least partly inspired by them, and especially with how iconic in pop culture/anime Kawoshin became in Japan. It's almost like Baldfat wouldn't exist if Kawoshin didn't, or at least in the same way.

The important question is do they fuck now even though their relationship is still stuck at coach and skater?

Enjoy her till the end of current season, anons, since young Russian women figure skaters have been like consumer goods for past five years. Big win and then immediate fall.

Now tell me how this show isn't for fujos in heat?

Lmao.

It wouldn't be a stretch considering Director Sayo worked on Eva and Endless Night aired under Anno's Animator Expo.

The most solid prof they see each other as a couple is Yuri asking Victor what he wants for Christmas. Christmas is a pre valentine day in Japan, celebrated by couples only, it's not even a holiday. After that Yuri buys the rings for them as a Christmas gift because he couldn't thought in nothing else more fitting. At the restaurant Victor says they're not married, they got engaged and the ceremony will only happens when Yuri wins gold.

You guys need to realize it's a relationship under Japanese optics. They were dating, now they're engaged.

This is the correct answer.

Powerbottom Victor makes my dick diamonds.

>>151448404
Baldfat are just best buddies remember? Their interactions with each other don't count because its all fanservice.
>>
>>151448367
Meme mahou will protect her.
>>
>>151448529
Yet they still believe their relationship has an expiration date based on when one of them retires.

The anime ended so it's once again safe to visit the local rink? Because when I went as usual at the beginning of the month some flying plump lady suddenly emerged from the side, crashed right into me and slammed me right into the boards, face first for good measure so my nose got broken.

Fairy is fucking annoying and not even anywhere as pretty as young Victor.

Piggy and Victor best MCs, Chris best bro.

>>151448728
The answer is autism.
>>
>>151448728
You act like thats unusual? Yuuri thinks Victor wants to return to skating which would make them both long distance and extremely busy. Making it work would be hard.
>>
>>151448744
Probably give it a few months. Those type are high off the ice dance.

>>151448414

Sayo didn't work on Eva in the way yoj are thinking, she only did Misato's flashback in 2.0, that was her style.

Hiramatz did work in every animated version of Eva tho, animator director, key animator, illustrator, etc.

But in the end it was Kubo the one who came with the initial character designs, and she has no connections to Eva except maybe watching it. I think it was a coincidence because Yuuri being a plain anxiety riddled Japanese boy and Viktor being mysterious was needed for the plot.

I would say Viktor is the anti-Kaworu. Eva stafg have constantly refused to humanize Kaworu and show him with negative emotions. Both Viktor and Kaworu gave unconditional love, except in Viktor case it backfired horribly because Viktor's lack of voice and lead in the relationship made Yuuri doubt they had anything outside skating, while Shinji was fully convinced they had something special: "You betrayed my feeling" "I loved him too".
>>
>>151448529
Them holding hands down the street and Victor putting his arm around him after the ring scene was pretty couple-ly. I wished they should more of their interactions outside of skating like that. I want more SoL episodes.
>>
>>151448780
I know a couple irl who went through all this angst drama after actually just getting MARRIED (not just engaged) because they lived and worked in two different places. It kind of reminded me of it. Thankfully they worked it out.
>>
>>151448367
Eh, Medo-chan has been pretty strong in her sophmore year in Seniors. She's probably the real deal until Lipnitskaya and girls like her.
>>
>>151448728
Both were trying to find a way to be together without interfering in each other future's decisions, they didn't want to be the result of a decision. Turns out Victor and Yuri still like to skate as long they're together. Not only Victor had lost his inspiration but Yuri too, in the end they noticed there's no shame on being together to keep their inspiration alive.
>>
>>151448832
I think some part of Yuuri is undeniably inspired by Shinji though.
Those anxiety attack scenes were like something straight out of Eva.
>>
>>151448779
Which is why Baldfat is the worst ship in existence. How long are they going to keep yhe autism twirl till they get enough fujobucks?
>>
>>151449022
Or maybe she was just trying to depict anxiety attacks faithfully? It doesn't necessarily mean that she was inspired by Shinji. Then again, it can be true. I guess we will never be able to tell.
>>
>>151448780

Even with Japanese optics it's difficult to believe they truly comprehend they're engaged to each other when the drama of 12 was "oh nooo Yuuri is going to retire which means we're done for!" They really did take the airport scene at word value to mean their relationship has a time limit.
>>
>>151449050
I don't think it's bad, really, because their autism is quite understandable given their personalities/situation. It just works within the context. Of course, if absolutely nothing changes in S2, then it will become obnoxious.
>>
>>151449109
You must not have much life experience if you think breaking off (or making to be frank) an engagement because of distance is weird.
>>
>>151449109
You can find your answer watching Yuri monologue during his performance of Yuri on Ice in ep12.
>>
>>151449109
>oh no I'm worried about our relationship and that it might have a time limit
>we should get proof of our commitment
I swear Yuuri would have gotten pregnant if he was a girl.
>>
>>151449116
I'm worried that it will inevitably continue into season 2 and not improve because they, meaning the writers, feel the need to tie their relationship so heavily to skating so that they can keep their sports genre logo.
>>
>>151449050
If they hadn't shown/told early on about how Yuuri is autistic and completely inexperienced with love in general and how Victor has literally paid no attention to the relationships in life until now I would understand, but at least there is explanation. Also, they're different people. I hope they explore this more though.
>>
>>151449211
That is a possibility, of course, but at the moment, we simply can't know. It's pure speculation. I for one want to remain optimistic.
