>the film is still a project, the story is not fixed but we will know more about Victor
The "they'll never give Victor a background"-fags got BTFO.
>Someone asked if they were going to develop Victor more and Kubo was like "OF COURSE WE WILL"
So it's not what they are actually planning. They just were asked and gave a standart reply.
>It’s just a project at the moment, we have no idea about the story but we’d like to make something with the female skaters
Seems like female skaters are for another project, not a YOI movie.
That doesn't change the fact that they confirmed there'll be more Victor development. Kubo could have just said shit like "you'll find out later, please stay tuned!" or "well who knows, are you guys curious???wwwww" and laugh it off without actually answering.
If they could the would have developed him more in the anime.
> Spin-off about Mila and Sara
Yes please I want that series, on the serious note I could see SayoKubo do it after they finish the movie or S2 and expand YOI's world further more.
This makes me wonder, would the homo aspect be more accentuated in YOI if it's about two girls as MCs?
Usually in anime it's more common to see two girls acting blatantly like a couple than two boys, and even kissing (even if for joke). No one really minds. Would SayoKubo be pressured to backpedal like it was for BaldFat from Otsuka if the show was about two girls?
i feel like they wouldn't have to say anything in that case because 'yuri' is in the title kek but on a serious note, even if they could easily show a kiss on the lips between two girls the different target demographic would probably force them to keep it ambiguous
Can we have more lewd Phichit please? Maybe it's me and my bad sherlock skills, but I don't see many nip artists who focus on Phichit. I see lots of Otabek, JJ, Chris artists. Phichit is so popular but strangely I can't find much new stuff.
Noriko Ito's doodle for Emil's birthday. The mole is a character from an old Czech cartoon.
This guy was the inspiration for Chris.
By why anon? Would you sacrifice more BaldFat contents for actual shitty dykes on ice?
You just have to diging in right place. I have many name artist who is phichitfag.
Pretty much lewd and have good art.
No, surely Sayo wouldn't do generic yuri for waifufags. But it will be a flop nonetheless.
Yuri on ice's popularity will eventually decrease in probably 3 or 4 years when the story will approach its end. The whole figure skating mania will die down, it's no use to draw attention to female skaters then.
And ? having a nice spin-off for close down the series is always good thing. Flop or not at least Sayo will make it and we would have just one more story about YOI before it end.
Is Kubo concerned people are getting fake news from Japan Expo?
Probably that. That's the only major thing that was released. Though why would anyone translate a person who didn't understand the answer, didn't know the language, was confused and said Sayo wasn't really clear anyway.
Who knows. Probably. That person is also just tweeting and translating shit like Kubo promised Victor's past and female skaters. They are just saying yes to whatever right now.
There was a Twitter account that got reported with the name "Fuck Kubo".
Bad interpreters and shitty translations. If you have info being said in Japanese then translated to French/Spanish and then translated to English then translated back to Japanese it's going to lead to some crazy shit. Especially since half the time they probably aren't that serious about what they say. And the fanbase is shit and takes every word said too seriously.
>And the fanbase is shit and takes every word said too seriously.
Not only this, but YoI fans, anons especially, have an awful habit of totally warping statements over time. It's like some retarded game of telephone. I remember something was said about Victor's birthday being a celebrated occasion around the world and somehow this turned into Victor's birthday replacing Christmas altogether and being the sole occasion associated with December 25th. It was insane because people weren't even memeing about it, they were listing this as a genuine fact that we know about Victor, that he has now replaced Jesus and nobody celebrates Christmas even though the show itself fucking mentions Christmas.
Makka has already won. She hugged him first, kissed him first and slept with him first and picked him up from the airport while Bald did nothing. Plus they share the same hobbies like going on jogs. Bald really can't compete.
Well you're not wrong, but it's not like information being distorted over time and different retellings is unique to YoI's fanbase. Though anime fanbases are worse off due to language barriers that makes it hard to directly quote.
That too, though this has spread to the nip fandom as well which is probably a bigger problem. I know Kubo is fine with interpreting things as you like, but she's spoken out against people posting shit as if it were official information before.
>people have even drawn fanart of long distance Baldfat.
Is that actually new? It seemed like half the fanbase already knew they'd be seperated for a bit because nationals. Like a quarter of the doujin are about the reunion sex BaldFat have after Pig moves to Russia to join Bald. Ederin's newest doujin is them being weepy at the airport.
Wasn't it at the tiny live drawing that only a dozen people got to attend? It'd be weird for them to disclose any important information there instead of an interview or guidebook.
Do people really believe BaldFat will be seperated for months after nationals? There's other competitions after nationals and is Pig suddenly going to go coachless for all of them?
The sex tape fic with 4chan responding, the breeding kink fic, old as fuck Baldfat fic skating together. They're all great.
Absolutely. Why did Avex think it was a good idea to not release it on BD/DVD?
I'm loving this artist's crossovers so much.
Well considering the room was apparently shaking when they showed WTTM for everyone because the fangirl screams and cheers were so loud especially when Otabek tore Yuri's glove off and in Tacoland a fan asked specifically about BikeFairy I would hope they know by now. I just wonder if they are assuming he was popular even before that.
>movie still a project
>story not fixed
Hope to get a title, visual, or release date at the event is lost. And much less a teaser.
But it's fine.
I'm mad there will not be blu-ray and DVD.
something clearly got lost in translation but more than that it seems to me that they haven't sat down to discuss where the story is gonna go yet so she doesn't want fans to obsess about something she or Sayo might have said without thinking
Yes but it's really bad form for the people selling the tickets to give out freebies of what should be an exclusive product for people who paid. It's not like they encourage fan accounts, they definitely shouldn't do it themselves. This is a basic rule for any sort of live event.
The problem is that fans are so eager to know what they say that they'll believe at whoever was present at the panel, no matter how incorrect the report might be.
SayoKubo are guests, it's not their fault if the translator is dumb, or it's not allowed to stream. Everything they said at Japane expo and AX will surely be repeated next Sunday and hopefully posted online on the site?
>- Yurio cosplayer (to both of them) : “Will we get to see more female figure skaters in the future?” Contrary to what some tweets may say, they did not say that we’ll see more of them for sure. They specifically said that as of now, the movie is still a project and the scenario still has to be fleshed out.
If that means we'll get a glimpse of his past, what are we more likely to get here? Some kinda sad backstory with possible parental abandonment, or cute teen Vitya hijinks and/or hard work to get to the top? I'm not sure I want a sad backstory for him.
I hope you have an awesome day, anons.
I really wanna get back to writing more YOIshit sometime.
I never said it was their fault, but if people are already getting false info why not say what exactly is false instead of just adding fuel to the confusion fire by saying "don't believe some of it" without saying what people are just going to question everything now.
Sad backstory is the only backstory. I want to enjoy his loveless, lifeless past so that I can appreciate even more his relationship with Piggy.
D-does Masumi know? He goes with Chris, right?
>tfw he doesn't invite Bald to all the gay bar hopping and sex shows
Bald didn't want to go cause he had to work, that's why after that Chris was salty he took a break because he had found something else in his life (Piggy)
Last I checked, BaldFat and Victor were far more popular than Bike and BikeFairy in the west. I guess LA just had a lot of Bikefags that day or something. He obviously got an explosion of fans since WTTM because of BikeFairy which was very recent so I guess it's a funny thing that they chose to come over here at the peak of the popularity for that so far but I would say he's more popular than Victor of all people and it's genuinely surprising to me that the YoI fags there asked mostly for pictures of Otabek. It might also have been influenced by the fact that they keep playing WTTM every event they go to and BikeFairyfags self-insert and want Otabek to fuck their brains out since the EX so maybe hormones had a hand to play in it as well.
>tfw it's about female skaters because people keep asking about them and Mila gets with Otabek in the end because SayoKubo think people don't give a shit about BikeFairy and only care about Otabek even though it's the main reason people suddenly give a shit about him
I never said otherwise. Just saying Victor is far more popular than Otabek of all characters in Clapistan especially since BaldFat is a juggernaut of popularity here so it's a genuine surprise.
No. The only female skaters accepted are Yuriko and Victoria.
>because SayoKubo think people don't give a shit about BikeFairy and only care about Otabek
i'm chill about ships but wouldn't worry about bikefairy regardless, even if it's only based on audience reactions during cons tacos seemed to be really into it and asked about them a lot, plus there was also that misunderstanding about them yelling 'wedding' that was thought to be about bikefairy
I just hope they aren't assuming Otabek was popular before because he really wasn't and they chose the specific time to come over at the peak of his popularity surely they must realize why he's suddenly so popular except they wouldn't know because they only come here now. I just feel like it would be really nice for them to realize how popular BikeFairy got here but if they are only thinking it's Otabek that's annoying as fuck and feels like a missed opportunity.
That's not going to happen. Skating for Rabu&Raifu is the reason why YOI is successful. Sure you can like other characters are pairings now, but what kept us watching the show for half the series was BaldFat.
otabek's 2 minutes of fame were all tied to fairy so how he be popular on his own? i don't want to offend otafags but i'm just trying to be objective here, i'm sure sayokubo realize it too
Why do they need to realize it? It's nothing important. Maybe he won't passed over for merchandise as much as he has in past now, though they don't control that either.
Him being most popular makes no sense in the first place, though that was a small signing.
I'm just sensitive to it I guess because BikeFairy was never that popular in Japan so was happy it got so popular in the west and the idea that the creators could see and acknowledge that seemed really nice but since people just asked for pictures of Otabek apparently and that's what Kubo mentioned not BikeFairy at all I'm annoyed. Logically you would think they would realize it's because of WTTM and BikeFairy but they might not have known what exactly was popular in which countries so are just assuming based on things like that. She even mentioned how she mainly drew Victor in France. Most of the comments she gets on social media about Bike are related to BikeFairy though but I'm not sure how many of them she actually understands.
>headcanon Bike as autistic
I laughed harder than I should have. You're wrong though, most of the vocal Bike supporters there and on twitter are BikeFairy shippers as well. The people who hate Fairy ships are the SJW who heacanon Fairy as trans asexual underage who must never be defiled by pedos and those are in the minority even if they do a good job of pissing off shippers.
I wasn't comparing it to BaldFat but just in general it's not really super popular in Japan. Fairy is really popular and it's probably his most popular and canon designated ship but I just was happy that it got so popular in the west atleast and think this would have been a nice opportunity for the creators to see that if at all. It's annoying to think they think people give more of a shit about literally anything else aside from BikeFairy even after WTTM and such focus on it. I want them to know their focus on it wasn't a waste in the west atleast. I'm probably overthinking I hope, as anon said, WTTM was what people scream over and that was obviously BikeFairy centric when it comes to Otabek.
JJBikefags are all thirsty JJfags. They ship him with Bike because they are desperate for their shitty husbando to be relevant in the fandom and stop getting hate so when they saw BikeFairy suddenly so popular they decided they'd try to get in on some of it since him and Bike both have undercuts and were rinkmates in the past.
I guess it's hard to not to compare it to the popularity of other things in the show. I mean, it's the same show, so being "popular" in general by some standards doesn't feel like it means as much when the show and other characters and ships are insanely ahead of it in popularity. It's certainly not a hated ship and is Fairy's most popular I think but again, it's definitely more popular in the west and I guess I'm sensitive to comments from antis saying WTTM and BikeFairy focus was a waste or that SayoKubo shouldn't bother with it anymore because it's not that popular anyway. I don't think popularity should dictate anything, but I think it would be nice if SayoKubo saw how much people appreciated the focus atleast in other places.
I'm so paranoid about this. I've been meaning to copy my Fairy folder onto any other hard drive I can but keep getting sidetracked. I literally started saving pictures from before the show even aired.
That really fucking sucks, just losing one folder would probably send me into a depression. My oldfag folder in particular. All those memes and caps from epic breads lost in time. I hate to go all /g/ on you, but you really should have backed them up. I'm one to talk though, I really need to get on that. My condolences anon.
Apparently Sayo hesitated for a long time about who should "help" Yuri take his gloves off during his EX and was at first thinking of a girl from the public?(I assume she means a girl from the audience or something) who would go "Kyaaa" and fangirl but Kubo was the one who suggested it would be funny if it was "his first friend"
If it was a girl, she wouldn't have taken it off with her mouth. So much of the energy of the performance would've been lost. Can you imagine her freaking out and bumbling to pull it off, all the while Fairy is just holding his hand out waiting?
As a Fairyfag I've always been annoyed that his EX had Otabek in it just because it was supposed to only be about him so for them to actually confirm it was just supposed to focus on Fairy and an Angel/s fangirling over him makes me extra salty. I was thinking this for awhile honestly that Otabek obviously wasn't supposed to be in it at first and they added him and the manga last minute for the bonus. Especially since Kenji's choreo has some girl sitting in a chair helping him with the gloves and acting like an embarassed fangirl.
That would have been fucking hilarious and Fairy making everyone wet and Angels exploding spilling their spaghetti because of it would've been great. They can wank BikeFairy some other time, but oh well what's done is done. Definitely would have preferred without Otabek involvement and the fandom would have been saved a lot of drama as well. If BikeFairy is just bait in the end, I feel more strongly about this too.
>Makka being all of Yuuri's first.
Where's the sauce for this?
Of course they're not a couple! BaldFat are merely clubmates and sex buddies with business arrangements.
>people still think Fairy is gay after this
My fucking sides. He's obviously het as fuck and the program was supposed to be him giving manservice to a GIRL and the only reason they decided to include Otabek was because Kubo thought it would be funny if it was his first FRIEND instead. It was a bait fanservice decision because they know their audience by that point are all BaldFat fujoshi so they assumed they would get wet over a hot guy starefucking Fairy more than a fangirl husbandofagging. They obviously weren't taking it seriously as a BikeFairy moment when they made it and even in the story itself Fairy was still going to go on the ice by himself and only wanted Otabek with him last minute because he probably thought he would have more chemistry with someone he actually has a relationship with as opposed to some random girl he doesn't even know since he suddenly wanted to show up BaldFat and never expected them to pairskate even though that was never the point of his EX in the first place. BikeFairy is so obviously bait now and even if you look at their actual relationship SayoKubo mainly fangirled over Otabek's fanservice involvement rather than taking it seriously and Otabek is the only one who actually seems to have more than friendship feelings MAYBE while Fairy just seems fucking oblivious and was more focused on being hot as fuck and performing than Otabek and didn't even really react to the glove biting. I can't wait until Otabek falls for Milla during his trips to St. Petersburg and Fairy doesn't give even half of a fuck aside from giving him shit for liking the hag because he only wants "MY FRIEND" from Otabek who is only his FIRST friend by the way. Otabek is only special because of that but he won't be the only one or even the most important possibly. Kubo already said she wants him to develop other bonds in the future as well and already started having him interact with other skaters in the manga. Bonus points if he gets a girlfriend.
I'm trying. I'm trying to calm myself down from this fit of fucking laughter at the fact that BikeFairy is bait as fuck and the retarded fangirls who seriously think Fairy wants to be Otabek's woman when he just wants to touch and show himself off on the ice and make fangirls panties wet. Wew. Okay. I think I'm good now.
Otabek was literally just his fanservice prop my fucking sides it's still too funny I can't.
Yes, mila and otabek
One fucking job.
She laughs at him too much, but he can be her baby bird if she stops thinking he's creepy and realizes he treats his women like queens and stops being attracted to bad boys who treat their women like shit (her last bf)
>both have undercuts
>both connected to Yuri
>Sayo talked about how it's only natural Russians are friendly with Kazakhs or some shit
It writes itself honestly. Kubo even made the comment about them and had Mila asking for his email and I bet Yuri gave it to her too.
Bald's backstory : he was born after Toshiya's encounter with a beautiful Russian woman who visited the onsen 29 years ago... Their romance didn't last long and he went back to Hiroko eventually but the Russian woman kept the child even though she could never stand to see him because he reminded her of her time in Japan. The movie is all about BaldFat finding out they are ブラザーズ and Bald reconnecting with his biological father
I wonder if YOI air same season as Eromanga, how many people will made comparison between them about incest. In YOI it clearly bitch-slap to current otaku "my sister waifushit".
I wonder SayoKubo intends to do that?
Yeah, Otabek is his first FRIEND, like in SEXFRIEND.
The gesture didn't have to be sexual, and choosing to get undressed by a man isn't innocent. There were HEAPS (you like caps, eh?) of other possibilities. That weren't chosen.
Oh and you have to be over 18 to post on this board, so you can go play in the sand with your little FRIENDS now.
I'd like to see another dark skinned athlete. If they're French them make them Algerian-French. I think Kubochan mentioned a whole back they wanted to add an African athlete but they couldn't.
I wish they added a skater based on Elladj Balde (not the great skater, but he is a cutie)
Or a male skater based on Surya Bonaly - a rebellious rival type would be nice for story
More tidbits of Japan Expo from miyakuli:
>They got inspiration of Brian Joubert for the design of the costum of Michele, and Guillaume Cizeron for Giacometti’s.
>they talked about an anecdote with Philippe Candeloro, who during one of his performance went in the audience and said “I love you” to someone in the public ;))
I see you’re a (wo)man of culture as well.
Yes, memes aside I can see Yuuri inviting him, telling him to bring whoever he wants. Dedushka, Otabek, or both.
Victor would just forget.jpg to send invites. He would be unable to think of anything else but his Yuuri and their first night as husbands.
I think people just get attached to their perception of a character as opposed to what's objectively shown in canon. Chris shows glimpses of interesting characterisation and conflict so people build off of that and start getting defensive when they're reminded that it doesn't extend to the show.
See this fanart kinda remind me how weird people ship them together with no reason other than they are cute boys.
The stageplay kind of fueled this ship. Minamis voice actor admired Uchi and told him he's really cool or something. They also competed against each other but Fairy forgot.jpg
Calm down pigfat.
I'm pretty sure this one bought all of them but I can see people putting their merch together for pictures. It's cute.
The canon itself doesn't help much though, and when SayoKubo open their mouths to give more insight into him, it always end up in sexual innuendos or anecdotes about his hardcore life. They reiterate the same old stuff about mature eros, butt butt butt, we took inspiration from blah blah. They killed the character. I actually want to see him skating decently and normally for once, kek.
Anon, stop being so obsessed. The answer is simple.
Bald can only beat people in figure skating competitions, handsomeness and in lack of cooperation; any other type of challenge that requires physical strenght and moderate to high violence is like entering uncharted waters.
-6 to Yuri on festival.
What do you think will be the big announcement? A 'rough' release date (i.e. Summer 2018)? A first sketch of the visual? More news about what period of time it will cover?
So far we know:
>movie is still project
>story is under construction
>hopefully we'll know more about Victor
"The romance between Victor and Yuri heats up on this fitted white tee from the wildly popular ice skating anime Yuri!!! On Ice. Front screen features a black & white dual panel design inspired by episode 7's kiss between Victor and Yuri. "
Hot topic is truly yabai. Sasuga ne.
It's cool in black & white.
Looking at this thread and some other places on the internet which we will not name I finally understoo who the anti bikefairyfags are: they are butthurt baldfatfags who don't like that another gay ship is gaining momentum. They are the same insane SJWs who scream: pedo at any bikefairy pic and cry because a fanservice fujobait ship is eclipsing their LGBTYXZ true representation. And just for that I hope KuboSayo keep going all out with bikefairy pandering.
Is that even a question? JJ is a fucking leaf and he has been taught by his PM that 'if you kill your enemy, he wins'. Bike on the otherhand comes from motherfucking Kazakhstan and doesn't play around.
>every ship I don't like is tumblr!!!
I'll never understand that mindset. Same with people who get triggered by other Bald or Fat pairings. Just relax and enjoy the fanworks, it's not like it's threatening your favorite pairing in any way.
Coach/eros for them slutting it up in public and their banquet outfits for hot confident pig and bigtoru falling in love
>Just to clarify some things, someone asked SayoKubo about a potential S2, but they said that they're only focusing on the movie right now
>Even if they believe in a S2, currently they haven't think about a plot yet! And for the movie they've just some idea of what it'll be about
Would you smooch this boy because you're so proud of him?
I attended the Yamamoto/Kubo panel at Japan Expo and it was garbage, holy shit the audience had boredom written all over their faces
The clip show of Yuri's skating was godly though
>panel was mostly about real life FS
not SayoKubo's fault you're a filthy pleb
hard to say anon, hard to say
Have some cancer fandom of yesterday and cancer fandom of tomorrow.
just healthy male-male, teacher-student, bro relationships desu
I wonder what kind of people like this garbage.
How can a doujin feel too real and yet be hilarious and sweet at the same time? I don't want BaldFat to suffer through half a year of unsatisfactory sex.
Haha, that was funny!
>Babushka was hetbaited by Yuuko too and she thought that young Vitya was a girl
>She thinks that Victor's coach should be Tarasova
>She didn't like Fairy, because he is rude and evil, but still liked cheered for him because he is Russian
>Bald's gayness almost gave her a heart attack
>She commented on ring scene that "Japanese people has weird customs"
>In the end she concluded that main characters are "goblins" and "gnomosexualists" (that's how this naiive old woman pronounce "gays" and "homosexuals"
>In counclusion, Babuska said she liked the sport part but was sad that characters "lost their orientation"
>In the end she concluded that main characters are "goblins" and "gnomosexualists" (that's how this naiive old woman pronounce "gays" and "homosexuals"
Does "goblin" sound close to "gay" in Russian or is this some old fashioned derogatory term?
>>In counclusion, Babuska said she liked the sport part but was sad that characters "lost their orientation"
Holy shit I wish I knew Russian so I could understand her commentary.
still not over breathing the same air as them
I'd say Utena (movie), YKA and No6 are clearly not a bait (and I dunno what show is lower left corner). But all other examples are the same level of vagueness as YoI or even less.
I want to eat that cute chubby pig face
