“Yuri!!! on ICE” Utterly Ruined Me

I don’t typically watch seasonal anime. Waiting for new episodes on a weekly basis frustrates me. I’m a show marathoner, so I prefer waiting for all episodes to be released before watching a show in one go. Exceptions include ONE PIECE (my #1 favourite series), of course, because I’d probably be in a nursing home by the time it finally ends. (*≧▽≦)ノシ)) Another reason why I don’t like watching seasonal anime is the overwhelming hype among fans around the airing period. As a viewer and as a blogger, I try to avoid exposing myself too much to other fans’ opinions as much as possible, especially while a show is still airing. I like forming my own impressions and opinions, which can be difficult when you’re bombarded by hype in all directions.

But one show completely destroyed all my resistance. Yuri!!! on ICE, you wily temptress…how dare thou ruin I?! I’m supposed to be the kind of aniblogger who follows my own pace, choosing my battlegrounds carefully, fangirling with style, and not letting myself drown in the sea of overhype. Alas, I discovered that this show wrecked all my control, letting out a crazed and obsessed wild lunatic of a fangirl who’ll literally get withdrawal symptoms without a dose of Yuri on Ice every single day. On Twitter, I’ve become a Yuri on Ice virus infecting my followers’ timelines with YOI ecstasy. I’ve already lost a lot of followers because of this, but oddly enough I don’t give a damn and resume chuckling like an evil villain while I flood people’s timelines with 150% Yuri on Ice.

Yuri on Ice has utterly ruined me…and I feel fabulous!

There’s no other way to explain this. I’ve officially become an addict. Yuri on Ice has utterly ruined me…and I feel fabulous! On one hand, I despair of what I’ve become. This loss of control scares me, to be honest, and I worry that it’ll affect my path of originality as a blogger. But on another hand, I feel liberated! Diving headfirst into the YOI hype allowed me to accept that it’s perfectly fine to just go with the flow and allow the currents of popular opinion to sweep me. So what if I can’t remember a single original opinion from myself while watching YOI? So what if 99% of what I post on Twitter is retweeting YOI tweets by other users instead of creating my own content? So what if my mind goes blank whenever I encounter anything YOI and I become a squealing and hyperventilating idiot? So what if I become an annoyingly crazy Yuri on Icer? So what?!!!

Saying all of these, however, it’s not like I watched Yuri on Ice just because everyone’s talking about it. Like I told you at the beginning of this post, I’m not the kind of person who’ll watch something because it seems that everyone’s watching and talking about it. I decided to watch YOI because I was already looking forward to it when a rumour started circulating months before that there was going to be a figure skating anime. Just that. No plot summaries, no character design releases yet, not even a whiff of any BL possibility. Just the rumour of a figure skating anime. It’s only because I’m already a fan of the figure skating sports in real life that I looked forward to this anime even before its official announcement, and got myself all raring and ready to watch when it finally aired.

I’ve been watching figure skating for many years now. I don’t skate myself…heck, I don’t even know how. “Gasp! Arria! You don’t know how to skate and you call yourself a Canadian?!”, you might be thinking, but oh well, not everyone can do everything. Whatever. As I was saying, I’m a figure skating fan. Period. Watching televised figure skating competitions without the voice of Kurt Browning doing the commentaries feel incomplete. I love watching the elegant and beautiful skating of world record holder Yuzuru Hanyu (no surprise there). He’s the best! I also cheer for fellow Canadians (wohoo!) Patrick Chan, Nam Nguyen and Joannie Rochette. Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford rock whenever they skate together. And of course, I won’t forget the beautiful ice dance pair of Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. I think you might’ve already heard that the pair skating of Victor and Yuri at the final episode was inspired by Virtue and Moir. Just saying. Go go go, Canada!

I think this is why I can’t completely hate JJ because he’s Canadian. Maybe. Or perhaps it’s because he’s voiced by Mamo-chan. Tehee. I also love Yuna Kim—why did you freaking retire?!!! Come back, please! She was the best. And of course the charming Mao Asada. I think I have to stop here because I can go on forever listing all of my favourite figure skaters…then you’ll get bored. P.S. Javier Fernandez x Yuzuru Hanyu is my best fantasy couple alongside fellow fangirls (and fanboys) even way before Yuri on Ice.

I didn’t expect it to be so addicting.

My point in sharing you this is that I didn’t just blindly jump into the insane YOI fandom without knowing anything. Since I was already following the latest news about it even before its official announcement, I already had an idea of what I was getting myself into. I just didn’t expect to fall in love with it this hard. I’m a big fan of sports anime. That’s why I only expected it to be an entertaining anime with good-looking bishies about skating. What I didn’t expect are the focus on the beautiful and heart attack-inducing romance between Yuri and Victor (two men, for that matter), and of course the hysteria-causing fan service littering every single episode. Ah, be still my heart. (wipes drool)

I feel so exhausted after watching an episode, and I’m sure that my fellow Icers will agree with me. Fangirling (and fanboying) is no joke, so never underestimate us. All those squealing until our throats feel raw and sore ain’t no joke, sugar. Laughing and crying…and often at the same time can take a toll on our emotional state, not to mention that it subjects us to doubts about our mental stability to the people looking at us while we pour our hearts out watching YOI. And also don’t forget that all that mindless bouncing and jumping, rolling and tumbling around make us prone to injuries. This is serious. I think I lost some weight by watching YOI. Fangirling (and fanboying) can be a great workout, don’t you know?

Yes, Yuri on Ice is gay!

Those who say that Yuri on Ice is not a gay anime are either blind or delusional. What is the point of denying that this anime portrays a same-sex couple? Yes, this anime is gay! And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, unless you’re one of those homophobic a-holes. Banzai Yuri on Ice! Victor and Yuri, please stay together forever and ever and ever and ever…(echoes endlessly) Ah, just look at the love in their eyes whenever they look at each other. (●♡∀♡))ヾ☆*。

Yuri on Ice is pure madness.

It’s really quite impressive how massive the hype surrounding Yuri on Ice got…or rather still getting even now that the anime has ended. I would never have believed myself capable of this much mindless obsession and cringe-worthy fangirling for a seasonal anime. It’s insane. I can’t deny it, even to myself. Yuri on Ice is pure madness…and it has utterly ruined what I believe I am not only as an anime fan but also as a blogger. I should probably be ashamed of myself, but all I can say is I’m damn proud to be a Yuri on Icer.

Squealing and hyperventilating aside, I’m quite serious whenever I say that Yuri!!! on ICE is a beautiful anime. Yes, it kills more than a few of your brain cells, but I argue that it liberates some of your innermost desires—not to mention your fantasies—and also makes you more open-minded and accepting of different kinds of relationships. It is beautiful! If you disagree with me, well, I feel so sorry for you. I’m not going to waste my energy trying to persuade you to see this anime’s good points, when you already established your own negative impressions of it. Besides, I already told you that fangirling is quite exhausting, so I really can’t afford to expend what little energy I have in trying to convert haters. That’s not my style. It’s JJ style!

Season 2, Please!!!

All of us fans are on high-alert, waiting for the official announcement of Season 2. And we’re going to get it…or I’ll mobilize an army of Icers to demand one. We want more YOI ecstasy!!! I’ve babbled for too long. That’s it for today, folks. Remember that I always welcome Yuri on Ice discussions from fellow Icers. So if you ever want to fangirl (or fanboy), always feel free to message me. You can comment here on my blog or reach me on Twitter @ArriaCross. English, Tagalog, and Japanese all OK. Ilocano and Pangasinense, too, if it makes you more comfortable. Cheers!

…now I’m going to re-watch the entire Yuri!!! on ICE anime…again…

…and again and again and again…(echoes endlessly)

  1. How much do you wanna bet that when I Google the quickest things that spread around, diseases, plagues, wildfires, politics, and news will all be second to our lord and savior Yuri!!! On ICE.

    Also, I’m pretty sure I’ve lost a few followers due to my constant retweeting of YOI EVERYTHING, but you know, the series has taught me that each and every moment is just as fleeting as the last, so live in it. And I will. And I’ll retweet until I break my thumbs. XD

    1. I’m kind of stingy, Taku. I don’t bet that easily. 😉 But that would be a sight to see if YOI trampled all those other search keywords. My goodness. This YOI phenomenon is insane. I love it!

      Ahahaha! High-five! I’ve lost not just a “few” but a LOT of followers RT’ing everything about YOI. I think it’s just you and our WordPress blogging buddies who stayed with me and the other die-hard YOI fans like ourselves. Oh well, whatever. The important thing is that we get our daily dose of YOI. 😉
      Same! Hooray to us Yuri on Icers! Wohoo!

  2. lol I kinda expected you to watch this and I agree that this anime might make history seeing the hype hums the opening song, but differently from many…….I didn’t like the gay representation this anime had to offer after episode 8. Believe me, I was like you, fangirling over every episode, enjoying Viktor and Yuri’s support of eachother and the way how Viktor always meets Yuri where he’s ready, not pushing any barrier and just letting him come out, yet……mostly in episode 10, I felt baited.

    SPOILERS AHEAD for those who didn’t watch the anime.

    I felt that this anime hit a personal note, as a bisexual person I felt almost “offended” (“offended” is a strong word, but it conveys the idea of what I felt); I felt that it tried to be more than your average BL-shaded anime, yet it kept an ambigous context in the end (like the lucky charm rings; the fuck you call them lucky charms then make a joke about it being actually an engagement? :/ it rubbed me the wrong way if I was supposed to take it as an undertone, I am sorry), then the last episode felt like enforcing the couch/skater relationship. They did dance together in a pair, true, and we know what that it’s intended to mean, but it just appeared cowardly to not go all the way, which even by allowing me to doubt it’s argument enough that the intent might have also been exactly to let fangirls squeal of what is 99% there instead of giving us the absolute confirmation, which is a very good technique if it’s the case, they understood the “shipping” phenomenon perfectly :/ And to further spercify, i do not deny the gay-undertones are there, I just condemn the chance that it could turn out in bromance or just simply staying as “undertones”; they have all the chances to go back on their words at the state the anime ended in, which is what makes me even saltier. (Which turned Yurio into my favorite character by the way XD) If it was supposed to be subtlety, on the other hand, I don’t think they understand what subtlety means…..(And I’m going to give an example here. During the “engagement scene”, they are both in a country which is pro-gay marriage and Yuri chooses to give Viktor a ring, which should be a subtle way to say “I love you”, however he puts the ring on Viktor’s right hand ring finger and here it’s to debate whether Yuri wanted him to understand the proposition because in the West the ring is wore on the right hand OR Yuri literally just gave him that ring because rings are a representation of the infinity of love which is the theme of the show and it makes sense why he would call them lucky charms instead of what they are, which Viktor teases Yuri about later on by calling it an “engagement”. The second interpretation sounds more plausible to me, because if it were really a proposition from Yuri to Viktor I felt like it would have been more powerful if Yuri would have chosen the left hand finger, which is the hand Japanese people wear their engagement rings on, as far as I am aware; it would represent Yuri’s intentions perfectly and that despite Japan not allowing gay marriages, no law ( or lack there of) can stop him from proposing to Viktor). It’s this the reasoning that I make when I disregard the subtlety they chose to use.. They focused on those scenes, they chose what to show on purpose! I cannot take it as a “case”. …But I do have hopes for the second season, despite what I said :/ I just don’t believe they are canon yet.

    PS: I hope this won’t sound like I’m trying to pick a fight or anything, it’s really not my intent to throw this in the faces of everybody that likes this anime with the mere objective of annoying people, because I’ve been accused of that everytime I chose to be skeptical after a certain point, of “ruining the fun, so I should keep it for myself”; they’re just my absolutely sincere feelings ;/ You and everybody else has the right to like this anime, liking its portrayal, liking its themes, there is nothing wrong with that and I am definitely not hurt because of that, so I also hope others to not be hurt by a different interpretation/opinion.

    Cheers, regardless of what I said, it’s a nice and up-lifting post to read 🙂

    1. Hello Neko-chan! Well, I’m also shocked at myself for loving this anime so much. When I first heard about it, I was very excited since I love sports anime. So I was expecting it to another one of the sports anime that I like so much. Imagine my surprise when the fandom went crazy and I found myself being swept by it. I must admit that it wasn’t very good in focusing in the “sports” element like other sports anime where they focus more on the training, etc. I think it focused more on personal development and overcoming personal fears, and of course, the relationship (and fan service) between Yuri and Victor.

      As for your point that YOI didn’t do a good job in representing the gay element, I do understand what you’re trying to convey. In fact, I’ve read similar rants and analyses by other bloggers explaining why their positions. I can see where all of you are coming from, but I personally have no problem with how the anime portrayed Yuri and Victor’s relationship. I think that the “subtlety” of the rings and not “going all the way” are so that YOI wouldn’t be categorized as purely a yaoi series and just be compared to other regular yaoi series. Covering the kiss with Victor’s arm and describing the rings as “promise rings” instead of blatantly calling them “engagement rings” are, in my opinion, attempts to draw a line from other regular yaoi anime where the couples just french kiss and f*ck each other openly every episode. This way, it’s more romantic, focusing more on the emotional aspect of the relationship. I don’t think it’s cowardly at all, but this is just my opinion.

      Also about your point about the pair skate at the finale, although I absolutely love it, I must admit that it felt like the ending was changed. That pair skate, although beautiful, felt a little too abrupt. Perhaps they changed the supposed original ending to give way for a second season, in response to the positive response from the viewers and fangirls like myself. Not that I’m complaining much because I want MORE. However, I have the strongest feeling that they really changed the original final episode. But this is just a theory.

      And you must excuse me, but I’m completely baffled how some viewers claim that YOI is not gay. That the relationship between Yuri and Victor is just simple coach-athlete relationship or just “bromance”. Yes, there is no specific confirmation in words that they’re lovers from either character…but goodness. Does every story need to be clear-cut? What happened to “suggestions” or “innuendos”? If YOI is not gay enough for them, well, I don’t know what is. As for the rings, actually, many gay and lesbian couples wear wedding rings on their right hands…so I think it fits the action of both Yuri and Victor. But well, these are just my opinions along with other YOI fangirls.

      Like you, I have high hopes for season 2. I’m expecting it’ll give us more drama. And I hope that it’ll clarify the true status of Yuri and Victor. If they don’t have any romantic relationship towards one another, I’ll concede my defenses then and accept that they’re just having bromance all this time. But if we get a clarification, well, I’ll jump for joy and dance my victory dance. 😉

      Don’t worry. I didn’t think that you were ruining the fun, as you called it. But first I must thank you for being polite and respectful throughout your explanation of your position. I admire that in a person, even if I don’t agree what you. So we’re good. No hard feelings. Besides, I enjoy casual debates now and again. Anyway, thank you very much for dropping by. I’m super grateful for the time and effort you took to write that long comment. Cheers!

  4. There are people I know who hardly (if ever) watch anime, who tuned in just to see Yuri on Ice. It is THAT remarkable. I keep googling details for a US release of the series on Bluray. I learned that the first TWO episodes were released on DVD in Japan and sold for roughly $65 USD. That is such an excessive amount to pay for two episodes. I really hope that because of the hype surrounding Yuri on Ice that the licensers are not trying to capitalize on it

But still, I love Yuri on Ice so…perhaps I’ll just wait for a final set to be released. I’m still sane enough not waste money for a couple of eps per DVD.

As much as it pains me to say this, I must agree with you. Sports anime is one of my favourite genre and I watched a lot of better anime that handles the sports element better than YOI. I think that more than the skating as sports, YOI focuses more on relationships and personal development. And yes, the fan service is so yummy here. I love it! S2, we can’t wait.

  6. I must admit I haven’t been as hyped about a show in a long time as I ended up getting about Yuri on Ice. I still can’t believe Crunchyroll crashed on episode 12. Six am the episodes were being released in Australia and when you are awake and ready to go and you click on the show and the site goes down that is all kinds of frustrating. Fortunately it came back fast but still…
    Glad you enjoyed your experience with YOI. I’ve loved following everyone’s tweets about the characters and even now my timeline is flooded with images and fan art people are posting so everyday there’s something new to look forward to, though the pace is slowing down (unsurprising given the fans focus will start shifting now that it is over).
