Seeing all the attention it was getting I decided to pick this up. Absolutely among the best anime this season. Well, there are many elements typical of a sports anime and the jokes are good but not top notch. The plot isn't completely unpredictable. But I suppose none of these should really matter because the point of a sports anime should be to promote the sport. And Yuri on Ice is absolutely doing a 10/10 job at making Figure Skating fabulous, amazing, sexy, awesome, awe inspiring etc.
And of course, the yaoi is strong with this one. VicYuri are on their way to being my top gay ship. And the supporting characters are definitely making things even livelier. Minako Sensei( the heavy drinker ballet teacher) cracks me up. Proves to show people can be fangirls/boys regardless of age.
Episode 6 is out btw.
Gregori and Christophe were hilarious this episode. Gregori's Okama level would put Bon Clay to shame.
And I almost laughed my bowels out when Christophe said "I think I'm gonna come" by the end of his performance.
Also, a curious little detail picked my attention this episode. After Yuri knocked Minako's door so she could teach him how to move in feminine ways; he has been using "atashi" (a feminine way of saying "I") in his inner monologues during his performances. However, in this week's performance he has been using "boku"(a more gender neutral way of saying "I", though males prefer it more) instead of "atashi". Guess we can say it's another element in proving he's found the answer.
