What do you think the skaters are doing on New Year's Eve?
not getting kissed at midnight
>Fairy is not getting kissed at midnight
Instead Fairy will be
biting the pillow as Otabek splits his boy-womb in two
Getting Yuuri drunk, then the sex.
>he just did it to boost my confidence
>good thing i still have half a bottle of xanax left
Yeah, they can't just make fun of it the way they did with Free with their whole "haha this is so gay" spiel. The show is already gay. Maybe if they found over the top ways to no homo it instead.
So will Yuuri keep getting fluffy or is he just putting off cutting his hair because Russia's cold?
The pig is just way too easy to sexualize.
I don't think I've seen much art of him in this costume.
Wrong. They will kiss tenderly, cuddle, and
then make adorable love to each other
I was fine with this show before it went full homo. I thought it was like Free, where there's only implied moments of homosexuality, and that you can still make the case that all the delusional fan girls were assuming they're actually gay. Fuck Yuri for making it actually a thing.
Who decided on his costumes
He didn't make him cry, Fairy just got teary-eyed remembering he doesn't have to put up airs around his Beka.
Threadly reminder that Viktor's dog has got further with Piggy than he has.
>tfw no doujins ever
Why is this little blonde kid so fucking adorable? I want to give him head pats and hug the shit out of him but he'd probably kick me in the face and I wouldn't even be mad as he walks away with his Barbie doll blonde hair blowing in the wind
Victor's just a pure maiden who had his heart stolen.
>Victor looks old
Take it back.
>Victor being the love interest seems kind of creepy and predatory
In what fucking way
from last thread's request:
V: Yuuri, I have a favor to ask!
V: Um, can you teach me kanji?
Y: Hm? Kanji...?
Y: What's going on, why do you want to learn it suddenly? Wanting to learn kanji... what kind of game is this?
V: I'm not playing around, I'm serious!
V: I want to learn something while I'm in Japan to take back with me.
V: I thought about going to the ninja castle to train, but before that, I want to learn some kanji...
Y: I'll teach you kanji, so please don't do that!!
Y: By the way, what kanji do you want to know?
V: That's obvious! I want you to teach me how to write your name.
V: I heard that each kanji has its own meaning. Even if the sound is the same, there are different shapes and meanings, and I wondered what kind of kanji your parents gave your name. I want to know more about your family.
Yuuri looks like a typical Nip beta teen Victors silver hair doesn't help either. Just a reminder they weren't created to be love interests either it makes sense they look off
Y: Ah... Is that so...
Y: Understood. I'll write it now, so make sure you watch
V: Yaaay~ I'll do my best
BG box Y: This is dangerous. Ah~... Watch out, watch out
Y: With every passing day, even the slightest things make me feel like crying
Y: "While I'm in Japan" Hey... Victor. How much longer will you be here? What will you be doing next back in Russia...? Will you... come to Japan again...?
BG box Y: Before my FS in the GPF I told you this was the end of our relationship.
BG box Y: Despite that, I've been dragging it out, and I find myself searching for some way to stay by your side
Y: There are so many things you've given me... Too many, even, and it feels like it's about to overflow from my body. It's your fault for giving me too much, you know?
V: I DID IT!!
V: Hm~ But as I thought, the first character is really difficult.
V: THAT'S RIGHT!! Yuuri!! What's the meaning of this kanji!?
Y: What!? Ah, well... This is the "Katsu" part of my name...
V: Could it be this is the "katsu" in katsudon!? It's fate!!
Y: It's different. What do you mean, "fate"...
Y: No... Hang on... Well, no, it's different.
V: Yuuri...? <-left behind
Y: Ah, sorry sorry. You were wondering about the kanji's meaning?
>Fatfairy not creepy
Just checking, you know how to count beyond 10, right?
And that's what a good writer does, anyway. Characters and their relationships should be allowed to grow organically even if the end result becomes different from what you first had in mind, you shouldn't force things.
Y: This character "勝", well... In English, it'd mean win or victory, I guess.
Y: You can also read it as "shou"
Y: The meaning of this kanji in my name is pretty far removed from how I actually am, and I got made fun of for it back in elementary school, being told I was nothing like you... Hey, are you listening? Vi...
V: ... Hahaha....
Y: H-Hey, Victor!!? What's up with you all of a sudden!!? Crying...
V: Ah, no! It's not like that! Sorry, I must've surprised you.
V: Man... I must be getting old, haha. Lately the tears come out over the slightest thing. ...However,
Some day everyone will realise what a fine piece of ass this man is
V: I'm just so happy because even though we were born in countries with different languages, our names mean the same thing.
V: It's like I'm there inside your name... Don't forget it.
BG box Y: ... This is dangerous... Watch out
BG box Y: Even I'll cry...
Y: Wh, what is that. You say some... strange things~
BG box Y: Because even after making myself say this kind of thing, I still
BG box Y: Look to find myself at his side
Y: Victor, I want you to tell me... when your flight is
>just look closer in age
Most of their interactions are basically that of a teen with anger issues and an adult who doesn't take it that seriously though, so their ages do show at times. Yuuri may look young in megane mode but he's a nip.
Multiple characters find Piggy attractive or desirable (Victor, Sala, Chris, Minami), his insecurity just means that he can't internalize their praise
Yo: You stopped skating; what is it you've been writing?
V: Hm~? I'm writing a New Year's letter to Yuuri.
Yo: To Katsudon?
V: Over here you'd send a postcard, but apparently in Japan you usually write a letter of thanks for the year.
Yo: Something's off... about that...
Yo: Well, I don't really care
V: Is this your rebellious phase!?
Yo: Anyway, I think that kanji's probably wrong
V: ... Huh? ... That...
V: Tha-That can't be~ I'd never mess up Yuuri's name.
V: You say such silly things, Yuri-chan~
Yo: Well... I'm not saying I know a lot about it, but
V: THAT'S WHY I'M SAYING it's your misunderstanding!
V: And besides, I had Yuuri teach me directly! And I have an example written right here so there's no way I'd make a mistake!
Yo: See, look, the character's different, isn't it?
Yo: No matter what competition site I look at, it's not 勝木 but 勝生.
Yo: I can't believe you got tricked by the pig like that at age 28.
V: ... Why?
Yo: It's!! It's not like I spend time looking up info on the pig!! I just happened to see it after something about Otabek, OK!?
V: Yurio... I...
Ya: Yuri!! Where did Vitya go!!
Yo: That idiot's face went pale and he went off to go send some gross New Year's letter.
Mama: Yuuri, please shovel the snow in the parking lot, too
Y: Yeah, yeah, I'm going now
Y: It's not like I have anything to do besides skating, so it's OK, but...
Y: I can't believe I'm getting used like this when it happens to be my day off...
Y: WHY ARE YOU HERE!? (in a panic) Vi-Vi-Victor!!?
Y: How long have you been sitting in over there!!?
V: ... About an hour
Y: You'll catch a cold. Mom!! Get some hot water going!! Victor came back!!
Y: If you'd told me you were coming here, I would've gone to meet you!!
Y: Victor, just take off your shoes
V: But I want to ask you...
Y: You can ask me as much as you want later, so listen to me now!!
Y: ... Huh? In a bad mood?
V: Hey, Yuuri, look at this.
V: This is the example you wrote for me when you taught me the kanji in your name. It's wrong, isn't it?
Y: ... You found out?
V: Why would you do something like that? I bet you were thinking up weird things by yourself again.
V: Why would you do something like this to me... I won't move until you tell me...!!
I was talking about that anon saying he looked like a teenage megane blob.
Time to pray we get some shots like this in the show. What about the Pig bent over in the onsen? Is that too much to ask
Y: ... Huh. Victor, are you mad...?
V: I'm mad. At you.
Y: Why? And you came all the way here just because of that?
V: Of course! After all
Y:... After all?
V: You told me a false name as a defensive measure to escape from me, so I wouldn't be able to find you...
Y: Isn't that going a little overboard...? It was just one kanji
V: But then why...
Y: There was no big reason like that.
Y: I just... thought it was unfair.
Y: You gave so many things to me up until now, right? Skating and emotions... And the ring, too! Everything you gave to me was exactly what I wanted at that time.
Y: But I still haven't been able to give you what you want...
V: That's not...!
Y: But that's all the more reason why when you told me you wanted me to teach you kanji, I felt really happy at the thought of being able to give you something for the first time... At that time, I thought that the GPF was the last time I was going to be able to be with you,
Y: and I thought that I might never see you again, and this might be my last chance ever to do something for you...
Y: But!! When I thought that, I wanted to leave behind a mark, hoping that when you realized the mistake in the kanji, some faint memories of our 8 months together would come back to you...
Y: I was desperate to find some way to always be in your heart, and before I knew it I...
Y: Well, I definitely never thought you'd come all the way here...
V: Yuuri, let me borrow a pen!!
This scene convinced me they're fooled around or had sex. There's no way they didn't considering Victor's bedroom eyes and voice and Yuuri's reaction.
Y: Uh... I-if it's a pen you want, they're over there... That surprised me...
Y: You really just do whatever you want...
Y: If you understand what I was saying, then let's get you in the bath...
V: ... Here, it's for you.
V: ... Even so, I still plan on giving you more things. Even if you say you've already had enough
V: whether it's skating or memories or flowers
V: However, if you say it's unfair that I'm the only one giving, then I'll have you give back just as much as I gave!
V: You'll pay me back for it after, even if it takes a lifetime.
Y: ...You're giving me something else right away...
BG box Y: It makes me unbearably happy just to feel that it's a given that I'll be in your future
Y: Hey, VICTOR!! What's up with this picture!! This is how you're starting the year!!? Cut it out!!!
V: I started wanting revenge on you~ Ah, Makkachin, shall we take a bath together?
Letter: Happy New Year. From now on
you are a bad person and you should feel bad
God bless your beautiful soul, anon. May 2017 be a great year for you, you deserve it.
This just reminds me that they never really put Piggy's ass on display.
We got Victor's muscly ass, Chris's marshmallow ass, JJ's trash ass, Fairy's twink ass.
And then Piggy's ass in mom pants for a hot minute.
>those matching numbers
>Fuck Yuri for making it actually a thing.
I'd rather make sweet tender love to Yuri for making it actually a thing
Was Victor's winking a bit of a nervous habit? He really laid off on it later in the show.
He'd wake up from his weird dream.
>How would Fairy react to Mila forcing herself on a guy who isn't interested?
By threatening to call the police I hope
I am very pleased to end the year with trips and would just like to take this moment to praise best boy Georgi.
Let his meme mahou bless us in the new year as well.
He rekindled my faith in love and mahou. Truly best boy.
Would you watch YoI if it was actual yuri?
Yes. I love gays and lesbians equally.
Bike is a gentleman who would never take advantage of his Fairy
Why would he? Fairy might to have to convince him to fuck him though.
This, I don't know why people are so intent on Otabek being a rapist. He's a good boy.
This, Otabek would ask for permission before every action and activity
while Fairy gets frustrated because he just wants to be pounded into the bed
>This, I don't know why people are so intent on Otabek being a rapist. He's a good boy.
>Waited 5 years
>Asked if Yuri wanted a ride
>Explained why he wanted to be friends with Yuri
>Asked if he wanted to be friends with him
>Cheered Yuri on
>Was happy for Yuri getting 1st even though it meant he didn't medal at all
Otabek is Emil tier bro and will be a Chris tier boyfriend
Exactly. He's a complete sweetheart. I will not tolerate this slander, /a/.
Otabek is a gentleman in the streets and a Chris in the sheets
If I somehow knew before watching that it'd be as charming and entertaining as YOI is, yes. If it was just another random series airing that I knew nothing about, I wouldn't bother.
I don't go out of my way to watch lesbians but they don't bother me either, and I'd love female characters with as much personality as the YOI boys. Too bad purityfag otaku would get mad at ep 10 and the series would have to make compromises if they wanted it to sell.
If it was still about skating yes, since that's the reason I watched it in the first place. When I heard there would be an anime about skating I was immediately interested.
I actually removed it from my watchlist at first when I saw promotional stuff and saw that it was kinda gay, I'm glad I gave it a chance in the end.
I NEED THIS
I NEED THAT PHICHIT
It's statistically likely he's Muslim, but Kazakhs are commonly nonpracticing and people from Almaty even moreso. If Otabek is Muslim, he's probably not the devout sort.
Even in ant size, I can tell they have no nipples.
>cute brown shirtless phichit in poster form
2k17 is going to be a great year
Is Phichit feeling up Piggy while Bald is distracted?
Have you seen anime aimed at male otaku, anon? Girls are young and moe and otaku would freak out at their waifu getting shitfaced and poledancing half-naked.
They want their waifus to be "innocent". Even most yuri anime infantilizes yuri, it never comes across as a grown-up thing. The target audience likes it that way.
>the pure virgin maiden turns out to be a sexually aggressive pole dancing slut
Gee, why would purityfags have a problem with that?
They probably wouldn't like Victor either, he's too slutty and forward.
Alternate translation of Kubo's recent interview, the nuance of some phrasing is pretty different and there's some things that were left out before.
What a disappointing interview though, S2 not confirmed, more leaving the kiss 'up to interpretation', shutting down the theory that Victor's song is actually a grindr ad.
>They probably wouldn't like Victor either, he's too slutty and forward.
I don't think they would even appreciate a female MC his age that much. Especially one who worries about aging, it's too non-escapist.
Definitely, Yuuri would be too old for them too. They are also too cold and callous at times, otaku like their girls to be perfectly kind and nice or some sort of dere.
Their taste is honestly fucking garbage.
Just read the interview, they didn't lie and the kiss was acknowledged to a point (skirting around the issue as always). But the original translation was live tweeting on twitter so it wasn't as thorough.
>Everyone can imagine the future they want to believe in that scene, and I won’t stop them (LOL). It’s kind of interesting, because Japanese people never asked about it, while foreigners straightforwardly ask “so which one is it!?”.
what a cunt
>As for me, I don’t want to say “this is what actually happened” and force an interpretation on people. Everyone can imagine the future they want to believe in that scene, and I won’t stop them (LOL). It’s kind of interesting, because Japanese people never asked about it, while foreigners straightforwardly ask “so which one is it!?”.
It's about the same.
>As for me, I don’t want to say “this is what actually happened” and force an interpretation on people
Why does she need to do this? Is she scared fujos aren't gonna buy her shit anymore if it's confirmed?
Read the whole thing. It's not any different
>If you make even a small mistake when creating the flow of the story that’s going to feel really unnatural, therefore it was important to accumulate a series of elements that would make the flow up to that point feel natural. And after intensifying the feelings to the point that you’d think “well, it wouldn’t be weird if they did something like that now!”……
She's not talking about a damn hug.
People are picky as shit about things. Like who tops or whatever. She's obviously not saying they aren't a couple or together, they even mention Yurio being surrounded by couples, but you imagine how things went down.
>Victor and Yuuri actually fuck on screen, moans and all
>it's up to your interpretation on what happened
I want her to keep it up, it'll be amusing
Would you wear it?
This is why you don't put any stock in amateur translations, kids.
If you want something clearly defined you probably won't get it. Though hopefully she just shows their natural relationship progression, and a bed scene or two.
Baldfat isn't any different from hundreds of other couples out that nobody ever questioned. People didn't suggest Nodame and Chiaki weren't a couple or close to one after their first hug. Though Baldfat aren't straight so everything is just bait and questioned. It's really annoying.
But it's funny how she's able to say that Mila likes Otabek and acknowledges Lilia/Yakov when their relationships are irrelevant compared to Baldfat. Even the interviewer doesn't take their relationship seriously.
Buy the fucking magazine if you're so concerned about accuracy, everyone else is willing to read translations with a grain of salt. They're rarely ever totally off, slight mistranslations and missed nuance is inevitable.
>I originally referred to the manga storyboard drawn by Kubo as “name”
>unironically, fucking ever, referring to storyboard by "name"
If this is the most reliable translator you think you have, I have bad news for you.
She drew the storyboards in manga form. The fact that a translator thought it was a good idea to call them names is a hint that there's a good reason why he never posts the Japanese pages. His translations must be a fucking mess just like Karice's.
But she and the interviewer do include them in that same sentence mentioning straight couples and said they can't even think of separating. Isn't it obvious the two like each other?
This translation is not any different from the first one. I guess we can be baited again if we want, though.
Yeah but it's funny that Baldfat are supposed to be a "real couple", or at least have some romantic feelings towards each other. Yet all the interviews/ect. don't acknowledge them or if they do they do it in a teasing, coy way.
I don't think she's making fun of anyone, just genuinely surprised at how straightforward and no nonsense western fans can be. Nips will just take what they're given without questioning it. Earlier translations made it sound like she was saying it's so obvious she was surprised we'd question it, but it seems more like she knows it's ambiguous and just didn't expect people to ask her for confirmation.
>>If you make even a small mistake when creating the flow of the story that’s going to feel really unnatural, therefore it was important to accumulate a series of elements that would make the flow up to that point feel natural. And after intensifying the feelings to the point that you’d think “well, it wouldn’t be weird if they did something like that now!”……
If anything this confirms it more than anything.
Not like Minako reaction could be anything but that.
But honestly, even if they didn't kiss, would people actually deny they are in love anyway?
No. You're the one that has to post the Japanese pages if you want to talk about these interviews so badly because these translations you keep bringing from tumblr leave a lot to be desired.
The fact that they left out specific bits of the interview (about the aria not being about Victor personally and the kiss being up for interpretation) makes them seem biased though, it looks like they wanted to avoid parts that contradict the homo even a little.
>Kubo: I got some incredible feedback via Twitter on the ep7 scene. Fans from overseas kept thanking me for some reason. (laughs)
>Kubo: I found it funny that overseas fans kept asking for a confirmation regarding ep7 scene - the Japanese fans didn't seem to need any.
>Overseas fans for some reason would thank me, and lots of them asked me “so which one is it?” (LOL). As for me, I don’t want to say “this is what actually happened” and force an interpretation on people. Everyone can imagine the future they want to believe in that scene, and I won’t stop them (LOL). It’s kind of interesting, because Japanese people never asked about it, while foreigners straightforwardly ask “so which one is it!?”.
That is the wrong attitude to take. Long interviews/answers have a lot of content, and it's a tough call to make to try to translate accurately, capturing the nuances, while making it natural English. It's only natural that different people translating will end up with slightly different phrasing depending on their priority, and being ungrateful for their efforts doesn't help anyone. Also, a lot of amateurs do a way better job translating things than professionally translated shit, so being like, "Oh, they're amateur, so they must suck and no one can trust them" is idiotic.
throwback to ep 4 where yuuri literally prays to god for more time with vitya.
Uh, nothing like that, the phrasing is different but the meaning is the same as the first translation. Ther is a possibility of S2 (add that to the 'See you next level' in last episode and it's even more than a possibility)
Baldfat is included in a list of couples, and Mila's attraction to Otabek is totally one sided.
That doesn't mean anything unless you're a nip good at English. A gaijin can live in Japan for 20 years and be worse at translating that someone who never went there. What you should know is that Toraonice was that anon that got shat on in /a/ for some inaccurate translations. He fucked off to tumblr but still posts links to his blog every time and acts as if he's a better translator than everyone else.
They literally skipped an entire sentence because it states people are allowed to no homo it if they want to.
>As for me, I don’t want to say “this is what actually happened” and force an interpretation on people. Everyone can imagine the future they want to believe in that scene, and I won’t stop them (LOL)
The difference in implication between
>overseas fans kept asking for a confirmation regarding ep7 scene - the Japanese fans didn't seem to need any.
>Japanese people never asked about it, while foreigners straightforwardly ask “so which one is it!?”.
is also pretty significant. The former implies it was so obviously a kiss that Japanese people didn't need to ask, the latter implies that Japanese people aren't straightforward enough to ask.
Nobody is obligated to post shit for you. I speak Japanese, so guess what? I bought and own the fucking magazine so I can read the original myself. All the translations for things that are posted are generally accurate and capture the basic information, so I have no idea why people like to waste time fighting over interpretations of different translations. Are there minor things missed or minor differences between what people say? Yes. Does that change the overall idea or content? No.
Some people are really fucking paranoid about translations, it's bizarre. We wouldn't be able to watch subbed anime or read scanlated manga or acknowledge any translated information if we had to be sure it was 100% perfect, translations are inherently fallible.
The second one looks like he tried to make a different translation on purpose, probably to be able to call it 'only his', like they do on Tumblr. Putting their names on things that aren't originally theirs, like scans for example.
But the attempt is obvious and the result is weird.
>From Yuuri’s point of view it looks like Yurio suddenly has this new friend Otabek, and I think that he’d probably get really frustrated realizing that even if he’s not on the rink anymore Yurio will still be able to make other friends and rivals.
Why would Yuri get frustrated that Yurio is making friends?
Unless Yuri also has a crush on Otabek.
>it states people are allowed to no homo
No, there isn't any 'non homo' nor negation in the original text, it's literally 'think what you want'.
It states that you can 'homo it' if you want. And we have all the hints that say we should.
The last part only means 'it's obvious for some, why do you even ask me?'.
I'm not even sure what you are even discussing
>>>If you make even a small mistake when creating the flow of the story that’s going to feel really unnatural, therefore it was important to accumulate a series of elements that would make the flow up to that point feel natural. And after intensifying the feelings to the point that you’d think “well, it wouldn’t be weird if they did something like that now!”……
Makes obvious what she's talking about.
Maybe if you stopped circlejerking about a different translation of the same interview every new day while still not understanding what's being said in them people wouldn't get tired enough they'd ask you to post the fucking thing in Japanese already as if to put them out of their misery. Not to mention that everyone knows how trustworthy tumblr is and how they always have someone ready to shill on their behalf.
Sounds pretty repulsive so far
Yep, I too can read japanese and it's obvious Kubo is OK about people (rightfully) thinking they are gay. After all she herself put them in the 'couple' category. I don't need translators.
I suppose it's the old idea that when your friends get together with someone (or get married), you can't interact with them as much as you used to do before anymore. Yuri might feel lonesome when all the people around are too busy spending time with their lovers.
That just means you're too stupid to actually use google other than typing something into the search bar. You know you need to glean information from it by reading and looking at pictures, right? Did the promo art not tip you off that it's got a male cast?
Seriously, how would it have been a build up to a hug when they had hugged countless times before that.
>Otabek is the first kazakh in anime
>appeared in yaoi fan service title
First was Borat, then this, why my people have to suffer?
Yeah I was a SamFlamfag, people don't need to get worked up about this.
Basically. She has a ton of references to actual gay men in the anime, it's obvious what her intentions were.
We are not talking about a cynical bait homoseries, we are talking about a series in which the characters buy a 600 euro wedding rings.
If she wanted cheap fujomoney she could have easily got that without the real homo development.
>wahh don't portray someone from my country as a handsome, likable, successful, talented pro athlete who is proud of their country and wants to represent it well
I guarantee homophobic retards like you make Kazakhs look worse than this guy.
Yes, I know know how people don't understand that. Or they have to be really young because it's obvious things like that happen when you have a little experience of how things change in life.
Everybody knows that, the deniers have selective memory, that's all. And that's not new. Just let them reassure themselves and let's talk about the show, not them. They aren't worth it.
This, she could have stopped at the 'professional' ice skating hugs between coaches and competitors. People would still have chosen to think they were homos.
The rings scene crossed the already barely existing line and was thought to do so. There is nothing to non-homo at this point.
>I haven't even seen the original Japanese but all these translations suck!!!
Yeah, it's time for you to stop posting.
You don't give your bro expensive wedding rings for good luck. Also, watch the end of episode 9.
And Yuuri is Japanese and didn't deny it in front of his friends when Victor said they were to get married after he won Gold. So there's that.
God, Kubo is really messing with our heads.
So are they really engaged like Victor says so? Because he only said that once and never brought it up again, I mean, they totally love each other but I still don't see them as each others fiances yet.
Rings and good luck charms don't have to be mutually exclusive. Think of it as a charm that, for Yuuri, keeps Victor to his side which also gives him good luck as it helps him skate well.
I don't think they are really truly engaged, but obviously, Yuuri is not opposed to the idea of being with him forever and the rings are a start in the direction and not simply a good luck charms. The rings and the thought they could be engaged, are built up from the previous episodes just like the kiss was. Just like the kiss, you think it wouldn't be strange if that happened with those two.
I mean the whole scene... Yuuri tells him to stay his coach until he retires, Victor says it's like a marriage proposal, and then says he hopes he never retired which makes Yuuri cry. Implying that he wants to stay with him forever. It's not difficult to understand.
Then why are you here?
Thank you for pointing this out as well. Yuuri was getting freaked out about the GPF, he was actually about to have an anxiety attack in the beginning of the ep. When Victor says he doesn't have to think about anything during the ring scene, he's letting him add another layer behind the rings, saying he can use them as a sort of coping tool. They're dual purpose.
We all know you're right, we don't need to verify it and bring all the details in each thread.
Just ignore the deniers, they're not listening anyways. Plus they're already insulting the show itself.
Waste of time.
I wasn't denying and I know they're in love, but maybe it's just part of me that thinks its too good to be true. And it seems too fast to get engaged like that, but Victor is the spontaneous type, so.
True. I do know some people are truly scared they will get no-homo'd in the end, but I just don't see why people are that paranoid in this show. It's just past that by now. Doubter anons must have been hurt in the past.
I know you weren't at all.
You can be engaged for a long time, anon. It is, at the very least, something that keeps them tied together until someday when they probably do want to marry like >>151688231 said. Which is practically what an engagement already is.
Victor had been in love with him for a year at that point, compared to others it's not that fast. Their main issue is they need to discuss their relationship outside of skating.
I think Yuuri panicked at the idea to be separated and Victor too said that athletes under pressure can do strange things.
Good that Victor is the patient and comprehensive type. I love his reaction of telling him something he wouldn't have to 'think deeply about'.
But then it also means that there is 'something' he's going to deeply think about some day. Like, the real meaning of these rings.
I'd loved if Yuuri got them engraved so that they became real, 'official' engagement rings to use in their future wedding.

I love Baldfat and all but that wedding is never gonna happen.

This. The unprecedented amount of shitposting left a mark. I know /a/ is the last place to consult when you want to see decent reactions about an episode.
I don't like how much people suddenly forget about ep 9 whenever this discussion comes up, it was build up to that point. Of course the rings would seem out of the blue if you forget that scene.
People of that belief don't necessarily have to think they're actually going to show it in the show at some point, anon.
