The Incredible Openness of Yuri!!! on ICE

It’s time for another video delving into the wonders of anime, this time with Yuri!!! on ICE. There’s figure skating, romance, and my thoughts on how this anime is incredibly open, even down to its use of the Internet and social media!

If that sounds interesting to you, take a look at the video down below the break!

“Yuri!!! on Ice” Anime Film Green-lit

The Yuri!!! on Ice event, “Yuri!!! on Stage”, has ended with an important announcement: the series is receiving a new film!

This is a new production work, so it should not be a recap film. For those of you unaware of the series, you can find the synopsis below:

“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.”

The “Yuri!!! on Stage” event will be available to watch on Blu-ray/DVD on July 28.
