>Victor versus Yuuri in the finale
>gratious PDA in the podium
Whatever happens, we are all winners
You don't know how long I've been waiting for a sport series where the main rivals are actually in love. I'd preferred it if they'd have hidden crushes but I guess a couple in an actual relationship is just as nice.
Updated week 3 sales for YoI, BD+DVD:
I'm not hype for them competing, no matter who wins, we lose. I can't get over how nonsensical it is for Victor to compete while coaching, after taking a lengthy break, at 27 years old. I don't want to see him fail but I don't want him to be that much of a Gary Stu either.
I am hype to see him skate in general though.
This I can see happening, along with Yurio being there for maximum embarrassment. It is funny to joke about Victor winning and never getting laid though.
There's so much wrong with it that it's hard to pick a point to start. I'm not even that hype to see him skate because it's just such a stupid move storytelling wise. If they just wanted to please stupid husbandofags, they should've done a Victor-centric prequel movie.
We already know they have zero ill feelings towards each other
If we get conflict it will likely be from external sources. If Victor doesn't perform flawlessly (not bad, just not flawless) the media/people will take it on Yuuri as the reason because he took Victor away and ruined him, or they will blame them of rigging the competition. If Yuuri performs below Victor the media/people will say he's runing Victor's legacy or being a waste of time to coach which Victor could be using on making himself even better. There's no winning.
And they are probably being bad mouthed already for all of this being an elaborate publicy stunt.
I can see them going all like Yuuri in episode 6: "well we will fucking show them" but there's also the chance Yuuri will crumble under preassure. Victor always sheltered him of negative voices, like covering his ears from Phichit's cheering or moving him away from the press at Moscow, but just how much he can keep doing this when they are in mother Russia?
Almost forget that Makkachin may die in S2 and that will sour their mood.
>Almost forget that Makkachin may die in S2 and that will sour their mood.
I really want to believe that they'll spare the fanbase the awkwardness of owning a tissue case of somebody's dead dog
>tissue case of somebody's dead dog
Made me laugh.
Part of the reason I think they're lying about episode 12 not being re-written is because of those comments precisely. That whole section of Miracle on Ice becomes so weird if you take the "nope we didn't rewrite it" stuff at face value.
>Victor knew the last year of Makkachin's life might overlap with this skating season so that was part of his decision to move to Hasetsu! He gets to spend lots of time with him now! He's very grateful for it!
>Fuck you Makkachin we Russia now
Yeah, pretty much the entire decision to put Victor and his busted knees frames him as the most fucked up pet owner ever. He moves to Hasetsu because of the stuff with Yuuri and because he knows Makkachin isn't long for the world, he gets to spend more time with Makkachin than he ever has in this place he called heaven on Earth, and then for some reason he throws it all away and moves the dog back overseas because muh world records and muh boyfriend inspiration.
Seriously, what the fuck. If he's going to be coaching and competing at the same time then that means he gets to spend even less time with Makkachin than he did before the show. Did nobody think this through?
I wanted the dog to die. Let him pass away finally in S2. Makka is ugly and has little to no point being there like most mascot characters. Let him die and give me more Victor tears.
It looks like Victor catches first class/business when he's on his own but economy when he's with Yuuri, presumably Yuuri doesn't have that much money. But maybe Victor can act as sugar daddy now.
>Seriously, what the fuck. If he's going to be coaching and competing at the same time then that means he gets to spend even less time with Makkachin than he did before the show. Did nobody think this through?
Makkachin will be alone on the apartment like 10 hours a day. I hope he unleashes his wrath and bites all pillows beyond repair.
Can't he just take Makkachin to the rink with him? I think they forget how old he is given that he goes running with Yuuri even in cold Saint Petersburg, a dog that old should be slowing down. My 12 year old dog is starting to lose his hearing, Makkachin acts at most like he's 10.
>thinks about the Makkachin statue placed in Animate (I think) for people to take photos with
>the statue has gray hairs
>character sheets actually call Makkachin "Victor's old dog"
>the most compelling dog is one that never ends
I disagree, I need more YoI. 12 episodes wasn't enough.
>those knowing smells and licks
Anyone else thinks Victor didn't wash his suit after the GPF and handled it to Makkachin to smell
Plot twist of S2 is that Yuuri got rip-roaring drunk and pole danced at the doggy daycare Makkachin was staying at for the day, enthralling his poodle-y senses and prompting forgetting the next day
Are you ok
Witch georgi has graced us with his presence
>mfw watching all these YOI related video's after the CR awards
All the butthurt.
Pretty much only filled with buthurt.
I mean it's not filled with it but when the reviewer goes on a rant about Yoi being popular just because it's Yaoi or gay you just know he's referring to the Crunchyroll awards.
If these have word "review" tag in video mostly good ones or fair ones bc most of them just normalfag who don't know or a give shit about CR awards. Butthurt ones you can see from mile away
>tfw makkachin tissue box cover delayed two months
That first guy is terrible at reviewing I don't get why people watch him. In this video he complimented different series he admits he hasn't even watched while complaining Crunchyroll only added a few underdogs to make the awards seem more legit. How can you without irony say you think Rakugo should have won best drama without having seen it? Or say FlipFloppers has better animation than YoI while having only seen a few scenes of it? And all his own recommendations are the same popular shit. He clearly only watches the most popular anime himself and just copies his opinion of unpopular shows from other people.
>Erased best villain
The male MC sure was gay as a fuck for his male teacher, I can definitely see why Erased filled the hole inside all the fujo voters.
>the butthurt when YoI wins Anime of the Year on the 28th
He clearly is only few sane ppl and can point out problem without blaming fandom
Most of them just dumb enough to ignore sales and think it sales just 10k , not surprising consider how unaware they were in yoi popularity
Should have been Viktor
It's something pretty unique
>Most Heartwarming Scene
It had some good ones
Definitely deserved best couple, and should have placed in some others
What other couple did deserve to win if not them? All other nominees were shit.
Most heartwarming was well deserved although I would have preferred the ring scene. The kiss had a good build up to it. Yuuri ending his FS about love with Viktor's signature move signaling that his loves ends with him and Viktor being so excited by it that he kisses him was pretty heartwarming. People keep trying to guilt others into saying Erased was more deserving but you needed to have not dropped it by then to have even seen that scene.
Viktor deserved best boy.
>They aren't even a canon couple
It's one of those
That wasn't a deciding factor for the nominees like the couple from Erased, which even beat your couple even though it is pretty pedo. Yuuri and Victor went through a formal Russian proposal, they are engaged.
If anybody in this thread actually cares about "proof" that they're canon, just search it in the archive. This argument is done to death. They're obviously flaming homos who are madly in love. This is like asking for proof that wood comes from trees.
>Prove that they're canon.
Pointless, if if watching 12 episodes of YoI didn't change your mind, if episode 7, 9 and 10 and 12 final scene didn't change your mind, I'm not sure how I can.
Just understand that you are in the minority regarding your delusion so don't expect people to go along with that. Japan certainly doesn't.
Erased shouldn't have gotten it either.
That one along with Victor/Yuuri should be disqualified because they aren't canon, the autists from Kiznaiver shouldn't get it because they're shit from a shit show.
That only leaves Luluco and Nova, which was pretty good all things considered.
It's not CR who is pissed.
Some people just take these kind of awards too seriously.
I mean you had to vote using twitter/facebook vote.
Hell, it would even won Best Fight if it was nominated.
I'd guess some people were unaware of its popularity.
Most Heartwarming Scene for YoI should've been the airport/ring scene desu
>If anybody in this thread actually cares about "proof" that they're canon, just search it in the archive. This argument is done to death. They're obviously flaming homos who are madly in love. This is like asking for proof that wood comes from trees.
Pretty much. If you watched all of YoI and think they are not canon I'm not sure why you think /a/ can change your mind. We are not talking about some kind of hidden subtext that you need to piece together scenes.
All the CR reps I know like YOI but were pissed it won everything by a landslide. Also CR didn't have anything to do with the nominees, those were done by an independent panel of judges who apparently didn't even talk to each other when deciding them.
Luluco and Nova kissed in episode 8
And their arms weren't ambiguously covering them when doing it.
The creator also didn't say you could interpret the scene however you wanted.
If you can interpret the scene however you want to, it's an equally valid interpretation that they're gay, they kissed, and they're canon. If she was genuinely going for "straight", "hug", and "not canon", there are a lot of ways to do that and none of them involve naked caresses and proclamations of love.
>The creator also didn't say you could interpret the scene however you wanted.
That's not what she said. And you can't interpret it as a hug as much you can interpret it as a falcom punch because the narrative doesn't support it.
That scene is irrelevant, YoI has a whole narrative built around these characters have feeling for each other.
It becomes even more obvious when you re-watch the series and several moment in episode 1-3 are basically Victor trying to get close in a sexual way to the dude who seduced him and ran way a year ago.
Girls love is beautiful.
Boys love is beautiful.
And they are not even engaged? That is the worst kinda a couple. Only married or engaged couple allowed for best couple polls. Otherwise you would just be voting for some sluts.
>voting for some sluts
Where do I put my ballot?
You have to go back.
>They don't break up a day after one of them "proposes" either.
Not wonder you have problem understanding they have feeling for each others, you still don't understand the show framed relationship is the context of ice skating.
They weren't breaking up romantically which was clear from how they still interacted.
I hate this too. They are faggots in love and Piggy obviously wants it but he chickened out of actually doing the deed. Their attitude after the SP makes it clear Victor hasn't forced the issue on him, too, and officially they're only just coach/skater.
>I hate this too. They are faggots in love and Piggy obviously wants it but he chickened out of actually doing the deed. Their attitude after the SP makes it clear Victor hasn't forced the issue on him, too, and officially they're only just coach/skater.
It's obvious their rings represent a committeemen from both sides. It's not a formal engagement, but the intent and what they communicate to other people is clear.
Jesus, /a/ loves implied stuff and metaphors, and yet this stuff literally fly over you head? Did you think the final scene was them "just" skating to romantic songs?
The piglet deserves to be bullied for all his pussyfooting. Where's the anon who used to call him a fat, gay slut?
>that already makes them way purer than an AIDS-infested slut like Victor.
Yes, it's what Yuuri used to cut off Viktsubu
Of course it represents a commitment, but a formal engagement is precisely what I'm talking about. Victor will jump at it for real the moment Piggy allows but he's still too autistic. For now they're just vaguely romanchikku pair rings and to call them engaged is innacurate.
Kek, the threshold for gay relationships keep getting higher and higher. Can't wait for the next non bl-anime to have hidden buttsex.
>We don't know if balls touched or not
>Otsuka: And they kept surprising the audience each time, too. When you show scenes that leave no room for other interpretations there's a risk of it not sitting well with some people, but Kubo and Yamamoto always plunged forward with no hesitation.
That post is one of the funniest things to ever come out of YoI threads. I still laught at it.
I feel kind of bad after learning that our buyfagging doesn't contribute to those statistics. Still, I caved in and bought the BD. Now I have to buy myself a BD player.
What is vague about saying "Victor and Yuri's coach-student relationship barely scratches the surface of their relationship and has transcended love" and the fact that homophobic people may get mad but they'll do what they want anyway
>The creator also didn't say you could interpret the scene however you wanted.
Since you love Twitter so much.
So do the SamFlam guys. And others. Vaguely wedding themes art is not too rare actually.
Surprised sakamoto didn't win most heartwarming or suwa for best boy.
Honestly OP should have gone to erased, that is the only thing it should have been nominated for.
>he clearly only watches the most popular shit
Just like everyone else that voted for erased and faggots on ice.
Do they have official pair rings that you can buy?
What about an official couple figure?
That's the clostest to what they are actually. They're just not official engagement rings, and I said vague because Baldfat themselves, while in love, are in a vague area caused by relation ship autism.
Not to mention she talks about there being no homophobia in their world, makes reference to them being engaged/married, liked tweets taking about how yoi is good for lgbt people, and even made an au for them using a tragic romance. It's not that complicated
>Why do they keep being vague and don't outright say it?
Because the audience has eyes?
If you think things are straight this says more about you than anything.
>No one is saying Kawoshin isn't canon.
Oh sweet summer child.
>Then they discussed THE scene from episode 7 and I found this part quite exciting because this is the first time the creator/voice actors addressed it directly and openly. And well, they called it the hug/kiss scene. Kubo said that she got a lot of tweets from all over the world, asking her for clarification (and some private messages, to which she responded with the truth, but she didn’t share what ‘the truth’ was during the event (she was smiling like all hell though so I think it’s pretty damn clear that it was a kiss)). In the end, Kubo explained that she doesn’t want to push only one way of seeing the scene onto the viewers and she thinks it’s better if the fans decide what they’re more comfortable with themselves
That posted, the only non-retarded interpretation is a kiss. I just want the Twitter-only meme to stop.
And later in a printed interview Kubo said she didn't know why overseas fans kept asking for confirmation when the Japanese didn't need any. Kubo is being polite but she is clearly throwing shade at viewers who can't take a hint.
I kind of get the feeling Kubo not "confirming" was more her being coy to the non-autistic nip audience who clearly got the hint, not actually trying to no-homo it or make it "ambiguous"
Eh Kubo obviously just pulled the usual plausible deniability card to avoid rocking the boat too much. They're nips after all. Sucks but what can you do? Sure deniers have a bone but it's hilariously dumb one, better move on.
>Victor will be nearly 30
>has basically taken a year off
>will somehow be able to be competitive
Thats hard for me to believe desu. Unless his next arc IS just hes too old to compete now
>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!?”.
She has stated that they're romantically involved though. https://twitter.com/aki_the_geek/status/814163225776226305 https://twitter.com/aki_the_geek/status/814163273994027009
Dunno why people say it, There are figure skaters, who retire after 30, it's rare but happens e.g Plushenko retired a 31, though maybe it's not good example given how messy it was. There was also Scott Hamilton who was 27 when he won gold medal at the olympics. Viktor's comeback is pushing it but i's not something impossible
These threads are pure shit when there's no news.
Seems like Kubo is having another interview with this magazine next month.
>being this upset over the awards of a streaming site
>being this upset over a cartoon in general
You're missing the point. Without the preceding sentences it look like she's saying of course it's a kiss everyone knows but those baka gaijins. With context, it's clear she's just repeating the same (dumb) idea that she's leaving it open for everyone, while adding that Nips, whatever their opinions may be, didn't feel the need to ask her for clarification unlike foreign fans who did.
I don't know but it's escalating to a pathetic level. The saddest part is that even if YoI lost those awards they would still come here to brag about how they're favorite show won them. CR was a mistake.
>in that scene
>"this is what actually happened"
>has said the same thing at least twice in different platforms
Come on. She's talking about the kiss, which doesn't make sense as anything but a kiss, BUT for whatever reason she's still giving everyone room to think what they want.
If you want to argue over translation semantics you have to post the raws and explain how one is wrong and the other one is right. Saying that you know Japanese or have the magazine isn't enough when you're making a big deal out of it.
Dude, that was an utter paraphrase by a translator who had an agenda. It's not totally inaccurate, but it completely took out the context.
Anyone who seriously thinks this is about "Japanese fans know they're in a relationship, unlike those dumb, homophobic westerners!" is an utter moron.
>still arguing about homo chinese cartoons
So what date is that seiyuu event that S2 will apparently be announced at?
I don't even think the judges watched YOI
>Best boy not the most popular one
>Picked a shocking scene as most hearth warming
>Best animation? Did they even watch eps 5-8?
I'm a YOI fag and I'm truly enojoying the butthurt
>Listening to Georgi and JJ songs.
Why do I feel sadness. ;_;
I know what you mean Lulu. Whenever I listen to Theme of King JJ I just imagine him flubbing and his fiancé crying.
The only post that got good digits was the one that said we were living in 2023.
Georgi, please bless the way Yuuri's mouth slightly hangs open gormlessly sometimes, looking soft and pliant and very easy to slip your finger inside of
Speaking of AnimeJapan, it's funny how they also underestimated this show when they made the lineup.
Maybe we need to invoke the dubs power of Viktor's blue balls.
>ywn hogtie the Pig and gag him with an apple
Some pork, some pork, my kingdom for some pork
I'm a baldfatfag but this was the cutest cover
you have been visited by the spectre of
if you see this you must post in this thread CAO BIN FOR WIN or you will be stalked by CAO BIN whom will tonya your kneecaps
C A O B I N F O R W I N
This cover restored my faith in BD covers. The first one made me believe that they would be boring, but Piggy dancing with everyone is really funny. I want a Phichit one for the 3rd one.
It's going to be fun. I just hope they don't draw Minami for BD 3.
BD 3 - ep 5-6 - Phichit?
BD 4 - ep 7-8 - Chris?
BD 5 - ep 9-10 - JJ?
BD 6 - ep 11-12 - duet?
>Canadian gang sign
>That'd be a nice "fuck you"
I'll bite. If the cover theme really is Yuuri dancing with everyone then Yuuri will be in the cover as well. They could both be doing his sign instead of dancing, though.
>Yuuri holding a very scared and slightly disgusted JJ while he just tries to pose for the picture, he looks a bit clueless too.
It's a shame they don't do back cover jokes, they should add a disgusted and annoyed Victor in the back.
I imagined how Viktor's heart-shaped mouth would look if that melted and now I feel bad.
I'm a retard.
On my 7th or something rewatch of episode 1 I realized Victor was sleeping on the floor in his own room, not on the floor next to Yuuri's bed. I've always wondered about him crying and those piggy hitler memes about it since I thought he would be happy to at least get to sleep in in the same room as him. My sides
He didn't want him to see his ugly poses while sleeping or hear him fart, can you blame him for not taking him into his bed at the first night?
I guess because it looked like he brought a futon, and the scenes showed him sleeping at then Yuuri immediately after that my brain figured he was sleeping on his floor. It wasn't until right now I noticed the fedex boxes and it clicked.
I had a lucid dream about Victor, we were in his old apartment and he fucked me in the ass. Thought i'd share with you anons.
These are so fucking cute, too bad the official merch can't be this good.
How the hell do these dreams works? Do you imagine yourself as a YoI character? Or was Victor 3D? Did he look like a younger John Cameron Mitchell? Or was this some weird Who Killed Roger Rabbit shit?
Her pig is better than her Victor, but still a bit too youthful and skinny.
They won't whore out their son like they do with Victor.
>she who must not be named still insist the show takes place in 2015
Nobody is questioning it at this point. It's either baiting from anons who haven't even watched the show or cynical fujos mad that they were proved wrong and so they can't let go of their faulty conclusions.
Yeah, the lines of dat ass are supreme.
Pork for president
Yuuri's ass is probably 20% squishier and plumper than Viktor's. It makes all the difference.
Pair skate's gonna need a lot a fixing for the BDs.
>using your phone enough to customize the wallpaper
Having friends must be nice.
I hope they redraw every individual frame to show that plump rump off in all of its glory.
What excuses could they have to make the Pig bend over next season? I would also accept watching him shoot the duck
They'd drag Yurio along too and we'd get plenty of disgusted Yurio faces. I'm already loving it.
