He's a good friend
Probably because he's younger.
He's the biggest bundle of sunshine in the show. I hope he podiums some day and gets his ice show as an ova we can all gush over.
Some (I included) think that the romance hasn't been addressed properly. Behaviour, contradiction, ambiguity, lack of conclusion, double standard ...
I found it really frustrating but I wonder if they did it precisely with the purpose to avoid the labeling. Actually it's one of the two only good explanation I can think of, the other one being they will address the romance properly in the second season (if there is one).
you might be waiting a while friendo.
that's a pretty nice bike.
how did gearous manage to get so ridiculously overrated anyway? blau is popular, but her success comes from the insane volume and reasonably high standard of art she produces.
gearous' shit is only slightly higher in quality, but is ripe with same face and boring composition, it baffles me people pay so much money for this.
Gearous does porn.
Also his style is overall much better than blau for YoI.
Why did Victor cut his hair? What do you think happened?
Fujo pandering, anyone who baits fujos with the allure of dicks is bound to make some money.
I do like some of his Patreon rewards though, the Victor daki looks decent.
He wanted to change his image, time for something new. The long hair was there to blur the gender lines, make him more androgynous, to suggest both genders etc etc. However when he matured and left his teens behind and became undeniably a man he changed his look
This art unironically made me ship them.
I'm sure he's a complete slut on the inside. Probably exchanged brojobs with Yuri at some point.
On a separate note, do you think Nishigori wants to watch Yuri fuck his wife while he watches
from the closet, usually wearing a superman costume?
Yeah, I kinda wish I would have spent the digits on something funnier, like ship trolling, or something grander. But on the other hand, both Baldfat and Otafairy have been established and re-established so many times Georgi's powers aren't desperately needed any more. At least I managed to establish it's not because of the balding, just signifying a new phase in his life.
You've all been good, sinless children, haven't you /a/?
I want an AU porn doujin where a younger Yuuri ends up as younger Viktor's rinkmate for reasons. They lust after each other in secret from afar for a while before Yuuri, obviously thinking himself a lowly fuck-up who senpai would never notice manages to beg Viktor to teach him how to land a quad and promises to do "anything" in return, which obviously turns out to be sexual favors. Also some hands-on "let's find your eros, what do you mean you're inexperienced we must fix that" training from Viktor
He's so pure, the photos in Chris' phone weren't even dirty. The one who kept all the lewd stuff was Fairy.
Phichit teasing Yuuri about how much he wants to fuck Viktor is good shit.
Do you ever just feel like jumping off a cliff? I wonder how painful the seconds where you're falling would be.
I'm one of the idiots paying 30 USD because I was curious but I'll be canceling it at the end of the month. It's a rip-off. He doesn't update weekly, his PSD are flattened most of the time or only have 3 layers in them, the high resolution uploads are resized, he deletes old shit so you have to stalk his page every day and save everything, the NSFW is censored and not even that good.
He could immigrate into West Coast American tomorrow and you wouldn't even know he's not local.
He's been getting better throughout the first season (even if there were some regressions) and I believe it will continue in this vein, but he will never be completely free of it. That's unfortunately how it works.
He's adorable. Would marry, or hire as a prostitute.
I think he wil, but I'd actually like it better if they explored it more, but I find that hard to happen. I mean, he's insecure and stuff, so it'd be nice to change the patterns of the so called sports anime (protagonists tend to not feel so threatened and motivated instead) and have him sometimes doubting himself and such.
Please recommend me material where the protagonists feel they're a piss of shit and etc.
I know something like this probably never happened because Yuuri was too insecure and too fixated on Victor, but I don't doubt for a moment Phichit never overheard Yuuri jerking it to Victor every night.
I kinda want to see Yuuri out of his comfort zone, where he is the one who will have to support Victor. It'll be interesting to see how their dynamics work if their roles are reversed.
He is the only character I'd like to read omegaverse fic with (because he would like dog dick for sure), but ironically he has none.
None is good to be completely honest. At 1 USD you get the linework of some old images and a cropped thumbnail of NSFW but just so you get an idea, this month he only uploaded 2 lineworks. 10 USD gets you a bigger NSFW cropped image and what should be high resolution of old stuff but it's actually a larger resize. Example: the "high resolution" he uploaded of this image is 1200 x 1719 but the original size is actually 2988 x 5312. 30 USD allows you to save standard ~900 px NSFW with censored dicks and download some PSD but he almost never uploads them. Basically, this could be worthy for a hardcore Gearous fan if he uploaded everything he draws and stopped deleting past shit, but as it is it's insulting and a rip-off. He keeps making excuses for not updating or drawing white dicks instead of lowering the price until he pulls his shit together.
It's a bad thing when you can tell he flattened it, he even merges the linework with the colors. When artists have PSD as rewards in patreon you're supposed to see a more or less untouched file, not an edited one.
This. I imagine that it won't go smoothly at the beginning as Yuuri is frankly terrible at these things, but it should be sweet once they get past the initial awkwardness/drama.
Ah, I can already smell all those Hitler!Yuuri shitposts.
Yuuri will probably deal with Victor being unable to cope with coaching, competitive skating and things like celebrity appearances like interviews. He'll probably walk Makkachin and be domestic so Victor can get enough rest.
You implying something anon?
Cuddle time with chubby Yuuri would have been great, Victor missed his opportunity.
>How can I get him to fuck me?
All the signs were there.
Well, if he continues to exercise, then sure, he will remain /fit/, but if he doesn't and if he doesn't watch his diet, he will gain few kilos. He's supposed to be the type that gains weight easily, after all. I don't think Viktor would mind.
That's so fitting for Victor, and I love these scenes where they just talk. Episode 4 is an underrated character exposition episode.
Just how intelligent do you think Viktor is? I keep thinking about an interview with a Olympic gold medalist in swimming who said that you have to be really dumb to be sucessful in a sports career, otherwise your brain interferes too much.
Viktor in particular is almost stupidly devoted. He flew to Japan expecting someone completely different (also a completely different reception) and yet he didn't waver for a second.
Makkachin won and he didn't even try
I love the alternate universes this fandom is producing
I have some news for you
Check the archive with "torrent anon", it's the first link.
Nice AUs are my favorite coping method after a series ends.
Characters you find appealing looking attractive in different situations, and exploring minor sides of their personality (eg Yuuri isn't a mafia boss, but he has a dom side). It's not that serious.
Yeah, I can hear that, but there were some other instances when it sounded closer to the correct pronunciation than usual. But maybe it's because my hearing is shit and it's played too quickly.
I guess it's pretty fun to imagine how a character would act if his life was really different from the canon one, though I tend to enjoy more the AUs that keep them in character .
Sorry for lower res
I love AU's that aren't omegashit, soul mates or something genuinely boring. I don't get the point of Viktor and Yuuri being cashiers or something (and yes, I have seen that).
It really is fun to see them in different situations, but the basic dynamic and personalities should be preserved.
Military and Mafia AU will be the death of me.
Bookstore/coffeeshop/florist AUs just seem like excuses to avoid doing research on ice skating. If you are going to change the setting, at least make it interesting and not painfully mundane. And I sure have no interest in reading about someone's re-skined OCs.
Yes, he 100% though Yuuri remembered their flirtation at the banquet and had intentionally invited him to Hasetsu with his viral video to fuck/romance and also to coach him, in that order of importance
All the "let's build some mutual trust" (through making out and fucking each other) and "as your coach, there's so much I need to learn about you" (like what your o-face is like and what your favourite position and kinks are) was just him being playfully flirty
I always thought it was a grill but /yoi/ confused me as well.
The hair fetishist in me is on a rampage.
Yeah, what with him struggling with Eros so goddamn hard, getting embarrassed because he thought the Russians would find him lame as fuck for holding katsudon as his eros (not wrong) and lamenting that shit, as a 23-year old adult male he should be able to convey sensual eros all point rather strongly towards him not having sexual experiences to rely on
My personal guess is that he was always quite gay and had a massive crush on Viktor, but at the same time was deep in a closet of self-delusion about his gayness and sexual feelings in general. He's just so fucking repressed he spins the engagement rings into good luck charms, ffs
I can't find it now, but there was an editing image of Victor with black hair. If you compare it to when he was young, there's actually a huge difference in how much higher up his hairline is
Exactly my thoughts on the matter. Yuuri turning out to be the experienced one wouldn't be an ep10-tier twist, it would be an asspull given his entire characterization so far.
More like the BBC in some shitty Detroit club
AUs like that are the kind of fics uncreative people write. Why bother coming up with a story if you can just use the same story but with a different profession?
Often a fandom will have a few fics that are almost entirely the same because of this. A few soulmate fics for example will play out exactly like someone else's did. A lot of the 'soulmates have the first thing they say to each other fics' all have the commemaritve photo comment. Those with 'Soulmarks' will almsot always have Victor seeing Yuuri's mark because Yuuri strips at the gala (which of course he won't remember).
Before A/B/O fics my least favorite kind of fics are songfics. Those are always by people so uncreative that they need to plagiarize from other people to write something. Who likes just reading the lyrics of a song? What if I don't know the song? Why not make an AMV instead?
>Why is there no porn of these two?
Porn involving Bald or Fat with other people is never gonna be all that plentiful, the ship is too strong. It's too bad, I like lots of pairings and they don't make me love Baldfat any less.
>was deep in a closet of self-delusion about his gayness and sexual feelings in general.
But there's no need for a closet in a non homophobic world. I think he was just not interested in relationships since his main focus was skating when he was growing up. He doesn't make that many friends either.
I'm literally going to be sick, please delete this and never compare these two people again
Some AUs are extensively researched and well written though. And it's no surprise they decide to write them, skating just isn't that interesting a topic and doesn't have a lot of potential (unlike, say, the Harry Potter universe, which has sustained massive amounts of fic because there's so much potential in the world for storylines).
/a/ is so weird about fic and quick to dismiss it based on premise alone but they are good or bad based solely on the writing quality. That's more about the writer's 'voice' or prose than the characterization (because they are never going to be perfectly in character) or plot (because porn and romance is more important than it being plot heavy like a real novel).
There is only one old man I love, and he happens to have his hair.
And what you said made me think about the possibility of my husbando going bald. It was bad.
I saved that exact same screenshot, I can't believe how hot he is at that age. What a GILF.
Kiku has superior nip genes, it's unfair with Bikutoru.
If you love your husbando then you should love him balding.
Viktor is literally
best championCynthia in this fanart And I thought I couldn't love him more than I already do
My husbando would be depressed as fuck if he was balding. He's past 30 and he looked okay so far, I'm hoping that he won't bald
who am I kidding, he's dead and will never bald anyway ;_;.
Would Yuuri be autistic enought to buy Viktor a wig as a present given that he's concerned about his hair condition?
Good job, anon. Pichitto is a great name for a cat.
I don't have a fear of heights, I have a fear of falling. Fuck that shit, literally the scariest feeling ever. Even when I trip I have to take a moment or 10 to recover mentally, even if I didn't fall.
Amd they are always so calm when real coffeshops are wild. I remember some other writer caloing out the lazyness of coffeeshop AUs because she worked in one and said they were a very well covered disaster zone. That the fics were missing retards dropping their food and drinks and broken toilets.
Nah, that's not true. Sure, maybe some are mentally retarded, but generally so long as you can keep your smart brain from turning against you, you can think yourself into becoming the next world champion.
Thanks. I'm actually the cat anon who originally named my two young kittens Viktor and Yuri, but after several months the names stopped fitting them, so they're Phichit and Paithoon now. (Their breed is from Thailand so it's fitting.)
If anything, Yuuri would be the one to help Victor accept it. He was the one who made him feel okay with being honest about himself.
Incidentally, I'm glad that BaldFat has actual physical flaws - Yuuri has to deal with his weight as an athlete, and Victor always worries about his thinning hair. I know the animation makes it look kind of cute at worst instead of gross, but it's a nice relatable touch
especially when you have to deal with both just fucking push me off this mortal coil right now
But otherwise there's no explanation for Yuuri not recognising his emotions towards Viktor as crushing on him. It's ridiculous, he's so obviously smitten by him, finds him insanely hot and attractive, admires him, but at the same time is repressed about his own attraction to him. Otherwise he'd pick up on Viktor flirting with him and would at least be sort of like "damn I'm attracted to him, if only he meant the flirting for real which he could never do because I'm not in his league". But he's just completely repressing and refusing to acknowledge his own desires, it seems.
He would have felt it the next day, and probably the day after that too. If you've never taken a dick the first time stretches your bits somewhat, and you can sense that something's been pounded the next day
There was an anon who took in two stray cats and named them BaldFat. Those cats were always sniffing each other's assholes and whatnot, I'm too lazy to find the details right now but we were amused by how gay they were.
Thanks, I'll get the hang of moons runes someday.
Oh yeah, that was me. I didn't name them baldfat though, and they weren't strays. They Viktor and Yuri and they still act very gay but their personalities are way different than when I first got them kek. Cat Phichit doesn't act like Phichit though but he does have a cuter face than his brother (who has a more handsome face) so he got that name.
My memory is shit. I was referring to Viktor and Yuuri when I said "BaldFat" because they are just inseparable for me now. You must be a saint for cats, jutst how many do you have?
If you look at the kanji and split it into parts in your head it makes it easier to search.
For example, 飴 has 厶 and 口 on the right side. Go to http://jisho.org/#radical, and look under 2 and 3 (it's the number of strokes) for those kanji parts, then click on them. It will show you all kanji that have both of those parts in them.
Fair enough, although the idea has now been planted in my brain and I kind of want to draw it for you, but I'm not a good artist.
Any drawfags around willing to help a yoiboi out?
Threesome with CiaoCiao and Peachy WHEN?!
That wasn't me you were replying to there. In the actual show I like the idea of Phichit being an only child, even though I suggested the brother. In the realm of fanart, however, it would be very cute.
Ah. Sorry, mate! Take a cute Peachy as an apology gift.
Kanji will always bug the fuck out of me because when I try to figure it out from radicals it ends up not making sense. Like the first part looks like 飲 for drinking, then 口 for mouth, and somehow this equals ame/sweet. Drinking (something) mouth = candy. Fucking hell.
WHAT ARE THE ODDS

He came for the booty but got blocked for 8+ months instead. Truly, YOI is a tragedy.
Wondering if the Anon who translated this is still around
>Q: What language do Yuuri and the others converse in?
A: Yuuri and Victor converse in basic English. Yuuri studied abroad in Detroit, so he actually speaks lots of English. Isn’t that super cool? (laughs)
>Q: About each impressive story title
A: Before getting into name development, I considered everything. Though the flow of rough talk [this is a transliteration, I think they’re talking about early drafts?] settled down, I had to come up with a title before the meeting. I believe I went for an interview with director Yamamoto at Tokyo station and thought of the 12 episodes all at once (laughs). We had an idea of how the words felt for episode 1 and so on, and the titles kept coming out in that light-hearted manner so we ended up prioritising that. But we couldn’t help [something, it’s cut off by the angled picture]…
Someone told me that:
>The author is saying that Yuri and Victor "usually" speak in English, not "speak in basic English" (kihontenki ni eigo = basically in English vs. kihonteki na eigo = basic English). It is a very small error but it makes a big difference in meaning. Cheers!
Is is correct?
Makes me wonder if yuri and Victor are even able to express themselves to each other properly since both are speaking a language far different from their own and both are from very very different cultures.
If this wasn't anime, I'd say this relationship would be pretty hard to keep intact.
It's confusing at first. You're on the right track about this one - 飲 (drink) and 飴 (candy) have the same radical on the left side, it's the one used for food/eating (食). It may look different depending on the font but it's the same one.
Many parts won't mean anything and are only used in the kanji because of the sound, other parts won't make sense now but they did centuries ago. Radicals may look different when they're written on their own, too. The radical used for things related to meat/body, for example. 腕 (arm) and 胸 (chest) both have it on the left side, it may look like 月 at first but it's actually 肉. Water (水) becomes three strokes on the side in radical form, e.g. 海 (sea), 涙 (tears), 泳 (swim).
>you will never be the 6'3 burly chad who forces himself onto yuuri and makes him into a woman
I didn't know this PV was so depressing.
I'm not the anon who first asked but damn that's interesting, thanks for the kanji lesson. Do you think learning radicals by themselves improves your memory when reading/writing more complex kanji? Sorry to barge in.
>Every night Cao Bin abused drunk Yuuri until Ciao Ciao found out and tossed Cao Bin out
>As no top-tier coach would take him after this Cao Bin's career took a downturn
>Now Cao Bin plots revenge
>Yuuri was drunk and doesn't remember any of this
I never knew that about meat, thanks!
Not that anon either, but yes, it definitely helps enormously. They're all made up of radicals anyway, so it's almost impossible to get to know more complex kanji without breaking them down
Victor's been an international top athlete for 12 years and speaks Russian, English and French. A goof friend of his is Swiss whose mother tongue is most likely French/Italian. Most likely his English is good enough to communicate his thoughts. It's Yuuri whose English skills are probably shittier, and combined with his general introverted mixed message autism probs leads to communication issues
I mean people do learn to be fluent in other languages, you know, it's quite common
>It's actually their common language
This is both cute and touching.
>on his way out from practice in detroit he'd always have to change in the locker room with the hockey team
>they would always bully him, pull their eyes back and make high-pitched ching-chong noises
>he always tried to tell them timidly to stop but his english wasn't good so they just mocked him more
>one day he's forced to dress in one of the players' girlfriend's clothes
>they take pictures and videos of him as blackmail
>he gets pushed to the wall
>all he could remember was how much it hurt
Both are probably fluent in English. It's not that they aren't fluent and can't communicate, but it's possible some things they want to say can't be expressed as well in English and they would be more comfortable expressing it in their native language.
It may have been like that when they first met, but after 8 months together it's a given they learned to communicate more fluently, they even started learning each other's languages (at least Viktor, Yuuri's turn in S2 I hope). Skating is probably where they understand each other best, in a way not related to words at all.
>yfw that songwriter girl from detroit makes a comeback in S2
The guy thought they were going steady and Yuuri was just a little shy about pda. Eventually he broke up b when he switched coaches and Yuuri did not put any effort into their long distance relationship.
Yuuri has no idea about any of this and didn't even think they were close friends.
I think it's because learning any other language is considered such a huge feat in English-speaking countries, they assume that being fluent in something foreign is similarly difficult or exceptional for everyone else in the world
>they show up, full of ex drama
>"I tried everything! I flirted, gave you space, threw myself at you, and nothing! how can you be so cruel Yuuri"
>Yuuri is clueless, turns out he forgot.jpg
>Viktor insta-bonds with the ex over the way Yuuri's trampled all over their poor, lovelorn hearts
kek. I can see it. Either they broke up when the person changed coaches, or Yuuri just left Detroit to go back to Japan without ever bothering to tell them anything. They are still dating but Yuuri doesn't even remember the guy
>it's possible some things they want to say can't be expressed as well in English and they would be more comfortable expressing it in their native language
Yes but you run into this problem when you make international friends, too, you figure out quite soon that there's some jokes the others don't quite get and vice versa, and learn to account for it and be on the lookout for signs that they're not "getting it"
Again, Viktor's been mingling internationally for a living for over a decade at least, probably 15+ years, so inevitably he's aware that foreign people won't automatically get Russian stuff and he'll need to express some stuff more clearly if it's important for him that the other person gets it
>He sees the cup of china incident
>THAT CHEATING MOTHERFUCKER
>sends Yuuri a ranting email
>Yuuri never checks his email
Yuuri can take a whole hockey team and keep going after.
You basically only need "I love you" , "Sorry" and "I wanna fuck you" to convey your romantic feelings in English.
I remember reading somewhere that Yuuri is actually very good at english from his time in Detroit.
It's more like >>152566151 said, there are things in their native language that don't translate very well to english.
Fuck, could you imagine Yuuri in the middle of a hockey team like that? His dainty body being manhandled and sandwiched between huge men nearly twice as tall as he is? Hardly able to breathe under the scent of sweat? Trying so hard to deny the overwhelming feeling welling up from inside of him?
>Abusefags waited for the series to end to make these posts
>at least you got paid, Yuuri thinks to himself
>then the videos leak
>Moon and Meat can be the same kanji
TWO NUKES WERE NOT ENOUGH.
Although thanks for the mini lesson, it helps alot. Especially the bit about the water, that's going to help alot. You're alright.
Don't go to Japan tomorrow.
Just because they don't translate to something as smooth as what it is in the original language, doesn't mean it can't be expressed
I really wonder if the people trying to insist that they can't communicate well because english are native english speakers themselves?
nobody is really insisting anything. it's just interesting they have to communicate in a language that isn't their own.
And a few are just trying to give them an excuse as to why they are shit at communicating.
>rape backstory olympics
I love you.
It's more like, there are words and phrases that could be easily said and used that the people in question just may not know. Even in English people have trouble saying things that could be easily be expressed with different words. Especially when it comes to calming someone down and
An anon in threads way back explained how difficult it was dating/married to a Japanese person because of the way they think and lack of expression. Something along the lines of "Don't feed a caught fish?" and nips are purposely vague with their emotions and don't even say "I love you" because they beliwve it doesnt need to be said. This is something that could piss off a lover who's from a country where you HAVE to say this like 5 times a day.
Hard to explain, but I get it. It doesn't mean they can't work, it's just I can see it being difficult for them.
>thicc booty piglet
Calling it now. Yuuri's secret romantic history is Dequan.
Lower level english is super easy to get since english lost a lot of its more complex grammar and shit. You can learn a couple verbs and nouns and be fucking set. Higher level English can be torturous though because English lost most of its complex grammar and is basically "well this sounds right so this is the way that is correct" and has a larger than average vocabulary filled with words that are a mishmash of various European langauges with no consistency (Mostly French, German and Greek) so spelling can be tough. Honestly though, native speakers have a tough time speaking correct English as it makes no sense, so who cares. If you take English as a child and are exposed to a lot of American TV, you can speak the shit English most native speakers do anyway.
>Yo wassap, dats mah boi Yuri right there! Man, dat nigga go hard on some dick, u kno what I'm sayin? Wass yo name son, Victor? Aw sheit, I hert about you!

Sheit, Imma let you two do you and head on over to Peachy-P's place for some hamster fun, PEACE!
My love for their love is just a little bit unhealthy.
I laughed so fucking hard
I'm glad if I can be of help. Recognizing radicals and their meanings will make your kanji study a lot easier. It's time consuming, but I would suggest looking up every kanji you learn in a database so that you can associate concepts with radicals as you go. Even if you only look at it for a few seconds, it might be enough for your brain to remember it later when you come across a similar looking one.
At least they're self-aware, they call the meat radical by 肉月 instead of 肉偏 like the other ones (女偏, 人偏, 月偏, etc).
I was trying to find a reference page with these but it's hard to come by a good one.
The lists have the standalone kanji and then the radical itself in some instances.
E.g. "heart" radical, 心/忄/⺗ refers to 心 (standalone) - 情 (radical on the left) - 恋 (radical below)
