I finally got the chance to watch this. I was getting quite desperate to be honest. The blogs were filled with Yuri!!! on Ice, my friends kept telling me I’d love it and even people I didn’t know were talking about it!
And this was during my exams! WHY?!
Anyway getting back to the topic… all I can say is that all those reviews I read I agree with! An amazing anime and I loved it so so so so so much!
Reeling from his crushing defeat at the Grand Prix Finale, Yuuri Katsuki, once Japan’s most promising figure skater, returns to his family home to assess his options for the future. At age 23, Yuuri’s window for success in skating is closing rapidly, and his love of pork cutlets and aptitude for gaining weight are not helping either.
However, Yuuri finds himself in the spotlight when a video of him performing a routine previously executed by five-time world champion, Victor Nikiforov, suddenly goes viral. In fact, Victor himself abruptly appears at Yuuri’s house and offers to be his mentor. As one of his biggest fans, Yuuri eagerly accepts, kicking off his journey to make it back onto the world stage. But the competition is fierce, as the rising star from Russia, Yuri Plisetsky, is relentlessly determined to defeat Yuuri and win back Victor’s tutelage.

I’ll be honest, I haven’t really read BL or GL sports manga/ anime. It was a new concept for me and I enjoyed it. (Yuri and Victor are sooooo cute!)
Wow. I’m still fan-girling right now. Hehe!
Still, even though I loved Victuri, my favourite character is and stays Yurio! (He IS my age…)
All the characters were well developed, the music was awesome, the animation was other worldly!!!!( It was so good……)
It’s humorous, made me cry, gasp, sing and even try (and fail) dance!
Oh… I don’t have words to describe how good this is…..
If you haven’t watched it yet, go now! RUN!!!!
When I re-read this post I realised it can hardly be considered a review.
