Would you protect your tsundere Fairy from Canadians?
Why did he start cycling and get a new boyfriend?
My Fairy is a strong ice tiger with the eyes of a soldier. He can protect himself.
Likely because he's aesthetically pleasing but unlikely soon because he's the least popular of the trio but likely again because his merch sells very well due to being aesthetically pleasing.
Anything could happen.
I'm sure we will get couple figures tho, like the Shinji and Kaworu one. Perfect milking chance there.
>I'm sure we will get couple figures tho
Oh. Well, I have never bought anything yet because I'm a poorfag student, but if we get a nice couple figure, I'll throw all my money at them.
Being aesthetically pleasing can help in becoming people's favorite.
See all the fanart Seung Gil gets and contrast with how everybody in these threads hated Minami's guts on his looks only before episode 5.
>I'm sure we will get couple figures tho, like the Shinji and Kaworu one. Perfect milking chance there.
I would go full buyfag for this but I'm actually doubtful we'll get couple figs. The merch and official art has been surprisingly not very homo compared to the show itself. I feel like I'm in a weird alternate timeline when the homo is beyond canon to the point pandering merch isn't necessary.
Anon, a lot of people buy merch of characters they don't care because they happen to look good on it. Hell some people buy merch of anime they don't even watch because they find the character design appealing.
I have seen millions of figures and I think Eva is the only franchise manufacturers make couple figures regularly, sadly.
Don't know it's okay to put this here, but I'm working on a Yoi/Avatar AU and since we're on the topic of Fairy... what kind of bender do you think he would be? Others, as well?
You might be scolded, but oh well. I think ice skaters would be a mix of air and waterbenders, with air being more uncommon with exceptionally talented skaters. That's what Victor and Fairy would be, with Yuuri being a waterbender.
Actually, adding to that - obviously there would be nonbending ice skaters too, and maybe that's what Yuuri could be. It'd add to his complex of not feeling good enough compared to bending skaters, even though he's amazing without powers.
Watched first two episodes, very entertaining but quick question, is Viktor based on Plushenko or Yagudin?
Cause on paper he seems to be like Plushenko, but his looks, personality and especially skating style are far more similar to Yagudin
His coaching is based on Lambiel and yes, his skating reminds people of Puru-sama.
Try to think of the characters as their own selves with their own stories, rather than "anime version of ___". Their similarities to real life skaters are superfluous and cosmetic.
Okay, I can see it
Well that's very realistic potrayal of Plush. Is that cameo in later episodes? And actually what I meant is that Viktor style isn't similar to Plush, but very reminiscent of a distinct way Yagudin used to skate.
That's probably good advice but I have way too much fun with it.
No one's scolded >>152235164 , so I'll be that guy: Go ask that kind of question where you usually post. I can't believe YoI made people dare to ask about shitty fanfics on /a/.
Also I'm reminded of that one dick who pretended to have a terminal illness and how dozens of YoI-fags took him seriously.
I'm so glad to see his genuine smile. It warms my heart.
Just look at his eyes when you take away the smile. He's clearly pretending. The fact that he isn't able to enjoy his own victory is so sad.
So tell me, /yoi/, what's your favorite Victor smile?
He just likes to play pretend! This was his serious coach cosplay! Ganba, Viktor-kun~
My first impression was that he's the kind of guy who's nice for cameras but can't be arsed to talk to anyone beneath him. I'm really glad he ended up nothing like that.
This one >>152242115
>My first impression was that he's the kind of guy who's nice for cameras but can't be arsed to talk to anyone beneath him.
Me too. Viktor's personality really is a gift that keeps on giving. He only gets progressively better with each revelation about him.
I remember forever ago in these threads when people first brought it up, and shitposters were like "You're reading too much into it, retarded victorfats reeee" but then it ended up being true. How things change.
It was a bit of both. He was in a slump, not "terribly depressed" and the sad, lovelorn body language is part of the choreography.
It's a bit sad that he looks his worst in the program that is supposed to be about his sex appeal.
They redrew frames as the series progressed so I'm hoping it will get reanimated
Speaking of which did anyone noticed Yuuri is a lot thinner in this season compared to how he looked in the previous one with the blue outfit? Victor said he needs to be "at least" like he looked before (the subs says so so it could be different in Japanese) and that sounded like his body wasn't right back there. Maybe Victor though he needed to lose weight rather than making more leg muscle for quads?
Or I'm just reading too much over inconsistent art?
I wouldn't think too hard about it. Yoi's art is not really that meticulous when it comes to character proportions.
>everyone fucking Otabek
I'm glad we all agree that Otabek is hot and that it's Fairy's job to marry him.
>I also wouldn't be able to fuck him before marriage
Tell that to China.
Did he call Leo's dick kakkoii?
What did he mean by this?
Can strech marks be hot?
Kazakh Muslims (especially ones from Almaty) just make kind of a half-assed attempt at not eating pork. If it was offered to him, especially by Fairy of all people, he would gladly eat it.
piggy makes anything and everything hot
Too late. China already has his slutty eyes set on his next victim.
Piggy's stretch marks are the hottest. 10/10 would lick.
He can try.
This moment is underrated, they all look so cute.
Well shit, I forgot this would be pretty possible given how his weight goes up and down. If Yuri is losing his fat too quickly, that body of his must be full of stretch marks and look like a prune. He is going to look disgusting as an old man.
The answer is no by the way.
Yurio shines when he's smiling
Explain. As far as I know when it comes to losing weight for someone not that fat, it's actually harder and safely you should lose 1 to 1 1/2 lbs a week. If you're a fat ass fuck it's easier to lose more, but to do it quickly is to end up with stretch marks and loose skin since your skin can't catch up to the loss.
So either piggy is fatter than we realize and has some horrible stretch marks, or he's doing some insane work out routine that could over work the poor boy, or athletes have magical bodies I don't understand yet, or just anime magic.
Any /fit/fags can explain this?
Yuuri probably only gained a few kilos. Figure skaters need to be as light as possible while still maintaining enough muscle to do jumps, though, so every little bit of extra weight is an issue.
It's all about the calorie deficit. To lose one pound of fat a week you need to consume 500 fewer calories a day than your body burns, he was shown eating bean sprouts and broccoli at his meals so his deficit was probably huge since he was also exercising quite a bit. Honestly he probably didn't do it in a healthy manner since he was in a rush, though a good chunk of his weight was probably water because of how shitty he was eating.
>Hey, my family has a business so you can count on me to raise the family.
I always wish I could watch this episode for the first time again.
Maybe its like those swimmers who cross the english channel and go in really fat and come out all muscular because they lost their fat in the trip and it revealed their muscles.
That's mostly bs. The misconception comes from people losing weight quickly by starving themselves or exercising at a rate they aren't capable of maintaining over a long period of time so that the weight just comes back afterwards. Yuuri just started eating better and returning to the daily grind of being a professional athlete. He was probably in better shape than the average person to begin with even with the, likely small, amount of extra weight. So, he can't really be compared to skinnyfat neets on /fit/ trying to lose 5-10 pounds.
This is likely the firat time Yuuri is this fat since he was a baby, so I doubt he has many. If he's lucky he may not have any.
His weight fluctuates but never too much because he has always been either in ballet or skating + dance. He must have a strong tissue too.
he's a professional athlete in good shape who gained a few pounds. it's not that difficult to lose weight if you eat vegetables and do as much exercise and training as he was.
Someone made a comparison between episodes 2 and 3.
Episode 1 has a nice example of fat unbiasedly drawn Yuuri at the bench after Yuko's introduction.
His chest looks big in that scene, he's one of those fatties whose weight goes to his chest.
What does this says
I think I live this artist
>weight goes to his chest
Did he have titties? I want to squeeze Yuri's big fat pig tats.
>Even in Japanese anime
Why is Canada so great.
Better question is what WOULD get them to get girlfriends. I hope Yurio ends up with a feisty tomboy if not Mila or Otabek.
Yuri I can see getting with a generic kind girl who is patient with him and also a fan girl of Victor.
Victor would probably date another skater with big titties. She'd have to be a gold winner though and her name, Lily.
This post takes me back to when we thought of Viktor as a huge slut and said that he would be into basically anything and everything. After the ep 10 reveal it's impossible for me to picture him dating anyone other than his precious piggy.
What was your favourite episode?
HARDMODE: no episode 10
I quite liked episode 4. It had a nice balance of screentime between both Yuris and good character development for Fairy and Baldfat. The bittersweet ending was also touching, even if it ended up feeling a bit out of place in retrospect.
>Gently molesting after practice as reward for a good job on a regular basis until he's won five consecutive gold medals at a record age
Minami is cute, and his episode was one of the best for character exposition. If only other skaters had almost an entire episodes for themselfs, maybe in the S2 if manages to get 24-26 episodes.
Episode 6. Casual intimacy and thirsty post-eros Viktor are a 10/10 every time.
I still like episode 10 the best. Can't be helped.
Yurio gives me the impression that he will never be interested in sex or romance. Why is a 15 year old so grossed out by displaus of affection? Most teens that age start having relationships and engage in those too. Not saying Yurio should already have but I'm sure he should have already seen plenty assuming he isn't home schooled.
Yurio developed a bunch, he's sadly shows his negative sides when Victor is involved but his relationship with Yuuri developed a bunch. One of my favorite moments in the series was Fairy giving Piglet the katsudon pirohzki for birthday.
I'm a pigfag who likes BaldFat
He's just really focused on his career at the moment plus seeing dumbass adults acting gross is offputting no matter what. He would probably gain interest around people his own age, even his newly acquired friendship with Otabek already had a positive effect on him.
Easily episode 7, kissu aside the China skaters are pretty close to my heart and I liked how Yuuri's anxiety was depicted, as well as him realizing Victor was an inexperienced coach. His cute "Victor no BAKA" during his free skate is so underrated
Fuck Emil, Marry Otabek, send Leo back to Mexico.
Do russians look down on pda?
Probably because I live in Mexico where it's normal to make out on a park bench and no one gives a fuck but Yurio strikes me as weird. I though the PDA hate was only an Asian thing.
Keep in mind he is written by Asians.
I never saw Yurio as anti-pda so much as anti-pda towards Baldfat. Here he sees Yuuri, someone he admires and looks up to, being gross and romantic in front of him with Victor, a flake that he dislikes. He probably thinks Yuuri could do better.
Pigtler lost the nuts on purpose so he could find an excuse to fight with Victor and force him to do whatever he wants, he thought about the rings far back and just needed to lure the fair waifu.
I wish Georgi would make shota Yurio real. I want 50 of him.
PDA is seen as uncomfortable in weird in basically all European countries except Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, and Greece.
Any country north or east of those and you'll get stares of disgust. Russia especially.
> Here he sees Yuuri, someone he admires and looks up to, being gross and romantic in front of him with Victor, a flake that he dislikes.
I think it's the other way round, at least at the beginning. Yurio sees Victor as an older brother figure (whether he admits it or not), and people usually don't want to think about their older relatives in sexual/romantic situations.
FYI I mean things beyond latching arms/a quick hug/holding hands. Anything more than that in the non specified other countries is seen as awkward and private.
On the other hand, two girls can literally run and leap into each others' arms and cling to each other while holding hands and it'd be seen as normal. Mainly only applies to two people of the opposite sex or two men.
More like was interested in Piglet, saw his pathetic side then saw him poledancing and humping Russia's most important skater. He couldn't believe Victor would waste his time with that guy, but Onsen on Ice changed his vision of Yuuri. Yurio doesn't hate Victor, he just wanted something from Victor so he could debut amazingly but instead he saw him travelling to coach a drunk pig.
Yes, yes, we get it Mickey. You want to fuck your sister.
I know you're not serious but for people who are, it boggles my mind. I don't even like thinking of myself or my koibito in sexual situations much less a friend or someone I'm related to. Absolutely haram.
>people usually don't want to think about their older relatives in sexual/romantic situations.
Don't necessarily have to be older it seems
How many times do they have sex per month?
Every day, at least once. If it's not anal, then it's a blowjob/handjob/footjob/blumpkin. If it's not that, it's mutual masturbation. If it's not that, then, well...you can use your imagination to fill in the gaps.
You know the biggest characterization mystery in the anime is how the fuck Yuri got to be top Japan skater and made up to the top 10 in the world when he can't do a single competition without spilling his spaghetti and everyone is super talented.
Probably did fine in earlier competitions but once he got closer to the final the pressure got to him and his anxiety overwhelmed him. He's very competitive and hates losing plus he has the needed skill, his problem has always been mental.
>everyone is super talented.
The competition was unusually tight this season because everyone wanted to take advantage of Victor's absence. Just compare the scores in Sochi and Barcelona.
Blau is not a bad fanartist, but you can tell from her art is too soft, Gearous gives them the right amount of thick.
Just watched the last episode of Sherlock. This season is like a negative version of YoI. In YoI no one expected main characters to become a canon couple and they did! In Sherlock, they no-homoed absolutely everything, even made the only confirmed gay character fell for a woman.
Also, they killed Victor.
I sincerely hope you copied and pasted this from somewhere
The whole "oh it should be in background and not the focus" is also just buzzwords. A relationship either tangibly exists or not. YOI episodes after the kiss felt like I am watching Supernatural or Sherlock episodes.
He takes Makkachin
for a walkkachin!
I think Seung-Gil will really come into his own S2. EP12 seemed to be setting him up for a more major role.
we will never be free of key chain hell
Those are cute at least. I actually like keychains and buy a lot when I'm in nipland but they're not really worth ordering.
I'm just mad I missed the preorder for the Makkachin tissue box
since then I found out sit spins make my nose runny and I genuinely need one.
>gook has dog
>chris has cat
>fairy has no cat
who makes these decisions? they should be fired.
yeah right you fujo land whale
Is this a driveby comment? We all know piggies can skate.
It's basically been confirmed by the Mappa producer
>Otsuka: I think Kubo-san and director Yamamoto would love to continue working on the show for as long as they can. I'm sure they have lots of ideas. Should they wish so, I and the company will obediently let them do what they want.
We know they want to keep going and they would be stupid not to.
>continue working on the show for as long as they can
S2 will end with them breaking up so S3 can be about them getting back together
The show will never end, they will still be in figure skating competitions in their mid 30s
Me too, I hope this whole "the most compelling tale is thd one that never ends etc" isn't literal and YoI doesn't become Pokeani
To be fair, Urobuchi's schedule has pretty much been booked solid for years. If Madoka gets a second season (and it likely will), it'll have to be when he's not already contracted for a million other things.
I genuinely hated that line. The most compelling tale is one that ends when it's fucking supposed to.
>being upset about an artist watermarking their work
for fucks sake, it's tiny as fuck in comparison to what it could be. make your own damn art if you don't like it
>it's not even the artist's name
The only time I think it ever makes sense is if you have your own tumblr and you're asking people on tumblr specifically not to repost it since they can just reblog it from you so the source stays intact, but even then it's not like it's going to stop people from reposting.
Not having your name on the corner of the art is honestly stupid. The 'do not repost' is extremely circumstantial and doesn't help people discover who the original artist actually was.
It looks retarded and ruins pictures. It's not my place to remove it but hell you are a fool if you don't think other illustrators won't look down on them for putting shit like that in their pictures.
This, it always sucks especially when the art is really atmospheric or otherwise beautiful and then you have this big ugly DO NOT REPOST!!!! taking away from it. Why ruin your own hard work?
While, as proud Mobfag, I completely agree that giving that award to YoI was ridicilous, this video is misleading. Show actual animation instead of stills of in-between shots.
Can we please not start this shit again
I can't tell if this is a buttblasted hater or a YOI fan lovingly mocking it. I follow the bad YOI screencaps twitter and have a good laugh at the quality on a daily basis, but I do it out of love.
If they were trying to shit on the animation, I hope they realize the irony of not including any actual animated scenes in the video.
Wait for next season. It will be one of the few good things that will come out of his retarded decision to multitask, and since Victor is the fan-favorite and must be beautiful at all costs there's a good chance they'll put extra effort on his skates..
I wonder if he kept and moved all his old Victor stuff. I need Victor to find the poster collection at least.
Okay, I did it. These complaints are valid, which is amazing for this guy. I think that's what bothers most people in the first place about the show: too many characters, not much time to develop them. JJ shouldn't be presented as a problem is he's going to job later so the Yuris can win too.
All of those sound like dumb complaints actually.
Side characters are not always meant to be developed. YoI is actually a good example of this, since the side characters are mostly there to stay true to the nature of the competition circuit while giving the series some color and flair in the form of a truly multinational cast. Considering the number of episodes, they did a great job juggling that many characters.
And the thing with JJ has been gone over a million times by now. He's the classic example of somebody who does really well when the competition isn't as tight, only to fuck up when the going gets tough because that's when the pressure kicks in. This was even called weeks in advance based on his previous standings.
I can overlook those complaints, but the part about not being interested in the sport is just petty imo. Lots of anons here got interested in figure skating, even watching the irl GPF live, taking skating lessons etc.
This. I have never understood why these people get any attention at all. As if they have something worthwhile to say. Most of it isn't better than your average /a/ shitpost (and sometimes it's actually worse).
He's still a damn good skater, you know. But he still doesn't perform his best when it matters, which is why he took bronze and not silver at the last GPF. Had he been in top form, he probably would've been second to Victor.
best looking design, best fashion, god-like legendary skater with a cute and charming personality who purely loves with MC. What's not to love. I'd be surprised if he wasn't the most popular.
Not really. They are pretty plain and Otabek is too short for his manly face. Victor has pretty light hair and blue eyes he's more attractive to most. He's not my fav, but I can see why Victor is popular
It's not even overhyped in the circles most of these people stay in. They're just mad that a large group of people (most of them don't know/care about anime youtube) like a show they don't like.
Those butthurt never gonna get why it win popular awards, are they
It reach to normalfag that why it blow everything out of the water.
They so salty about stupid awards like the most important thing in their life. No wonder why normalfag view us like baby
I've always thought that wedding rings were dumb but BaldFat made me feel mortified that I'll never get to wear one.
Has some madwoman bought the same rings from that Barcelona shop and offered them to her BaldFat shrine yet? That's the level of craziness I expect from the fujos.
I get why people are angry at yoi winning everything, some of these awards should go to different series, but the way they act like it's the big deal, the worst thing that happened to community etc. is hilarious. jfc it's crunchyroll
All they need to is get two regular wedding rings and put them in a box with characters' pictures on it to sell them at the double price. God forbid if they write BaldFat's name in the rings.
There should be a lot of new doujinshi coming out soon. If fujos bother to scan anything and make it public that is. That event was yesterday.
maybe. will they all have crying uke yuuri is the rest question
Nippon has their share of retards as well, although they tend to show their retardation in a different way. Remember that one nip who kept messaging companies of YoI's supposed copyright infringement until they told him to stop spamming them?
Victor is designed to be idolized: he is handsome, his bad sides are constantly glossed over by the narrative, every character who doesn't unconditionally worship him is portrayed as being petty or in the wrong, and the bulk of the story is told from the point of view of someone who puts him on a pedestal.
It won't matter if he wins or not because now Yuuri probably unironically thinks that he owes Viktor five gold medals. Last season of YoI will be a forty years old Yuuri trying to figure skate in a wheelchair.
>every character who doesn't unconditionally worship him is portrayed as being petty or in the wrong
What? They're portrayed like they should get over it and pave their own way as they all have their own talents and abilities. That's the impression I got, anyway.
I'm really craving some dominant Yuuri, most of the stuff on sadpanda are OOC too.
Victor already said Worlds or GPF so it has to be that. He did it to himself.
Basically keep Victor out of the competition if he ever wants to get married.
>The following countries are eligible to send skaters to the competition: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Chinese Taipei, DPR Korea, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Mongolia, New Zealand, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Republic of Korea, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, United States of America, and Uzbekistan
Otabek would be there.
Is the one you posted scanned somewhere? I was almost going to
buyit, but I was a little too late.
I want to read these.
I like Mari. I'd go drinking with her.
