Comiket was a week or two ago. So the YoI doujins are beginning to flow out...

Remember Yakov On Ice? (below)

Someone turned it into a comic.

You're welcome.



Quote:
Banquet:

- Yuri don’t let yourself get baited into a dance batt- I SAID DON’T GET BAITED INTO A DANCE BATTLE! GODDAMNIT YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE MEETING SPONSERS!

- Victor! Mila! Stop encouraging them! AND STOP TAKING PICTURES

- Victor you’re not even drunk! STOP DANCING WITH THE SLOPPY DRUNK

- Why is there a stripper pole in here? Why is this allowed to get out of hand? WHERE THE HELL ARE CHRIS AND THIS DRUNK’S COACHES?!?

- Victor! DON’T LET DRUNKS HUMP YOU IN FRONT OF SPONSERS! NO, YOU CAN’T TAKE HIM BACK TO HIS ROOM! I DON’T CARE IF YOU THINK YOU’RE IN LOVE HE’S DRUNK AND YOU’RE AN IDIOT! I’LL TAKE HIM BACK TO HIS ROOM BEFORE YOU MAKE ANY MORE BAD DECISIONS.

- *sends Celestino a strongly worded email about keeping an eye on his pupils in the future the next morning*


Episode One

- Victor stop. Stop pining. You aren’t in love. No I don’t believe in love at first sight and I certainly don’t believe in love at first drunken humping. You’re right I’m not taking this seriously. He hasn’t contacted you because he was DRUNK OUT OF HIS MIND! Did you see how much booze he downed? It’s a wonder he didn’t die of alcohol poisoning. Just stfu and skate.

- Victor no. It’s not a message. Victor no! Don’t give up your career for an ill-advised booty call! UGH if I can’t stop you just make sure our Yuri doesn’t find out where you went.


Episode Two

- WHY ARE YOU IN JAPAN TOO YURI! I COULDN’T STOP VICTOR MAKING AN ILL-ADVISED BOOTY CALL BUT YOU ARE TOO YOUNG TO BE ATTEMPTING THAT! YEAH SURE YOU’RE NOT THERE FOR THAT I’VE SEEN YOUR ROOM! …NO ONE HAS 30 POSTERS OF SOMEONE IN THEIR ROOM BECAUSE THEY ‘HATE THEM JUST SO MUCH’ YOU’RE FOOLING NO ONE KID!


Episode Three

- OMFG did you really give him a program about the night he got sloppy drunk and you turned into even a bigger moron? You’re going to put me into an early grave.


Episode Four

- MILA! STOP POKING THE SMOL ANGRY CHILD! HIS SCREECHING HURTS MY EARS!

- Wait, why the hell do I have to go live with my ex-wife and the angsty teen? I don’t want to have to listen to a list of my failures or a catalogue of all the ways Drunk Yuri is the worst especially as it tends to devolve into ‘stupid pig, how dare he be so good looking’.


Episode Five

- Victor stop trying to pretend this isn’t an elaborate booty call. This is not how coaching works.


Episode Six

- I have the living legend who gave it all up to be a pretend coach in order to get with a sloppy drunk, a sadist of a female skater who stirs up trouble on purpose, an angsty teen who can’t tell the difference between having a crush and hating someone and an emo skater who is far too old to be as emo as he is. Kill me now.


Episode Seven

- Maybe I was giving Victor a disservice. His student is actually doing quite well and maybe they are taking it seriously and HOLY FUCK NEVERMIND JUST KISS YOUR STUDENT IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE FUCKING WORLD VICTOR YOU ASSHAT


Episode Eight

- Yuri has calmed down and I’m just going to ignore Victor. Yep that’ll work OMFG did you HAVE TO KISS HIS FUCKING SKATE?!? THIS IS WHY YOU WEREN’T ALLOWED TO TAKE HIM BACK TO THE HOTEL ROOM! YOU HAVE NO CHILL!

- You want me to what? Be his coach? Well…only because I like Maccachin.


Episode Nine

- You’re alright actually, I hereby allow you the name Japanese Yuri instead of Drunk Yuri. You may be the only sane person I know surprisingly. I still am going to tell you off for fucking up though.

- ….I take it all back. WTF was up with all the hugging.


Episode Ten

- …They got engaged. Victor really is going to marry him….I’m not even surprised at this point. Fine. Keep him Japanese Yuri. He’s a pain in the ass anyway.


Episode Eleven

- YES! I AM A PROUD DAD/COACH! HAPPIEST I’VE BEEN THIS WHOLE YEAR


Episode Twelve

- WTF? You’re coming back now? Idek what’s going on anymore.

- Well done Yuri! I’m so proud of you for winning gold!

- …They are doing a super romantic pairs skate because of course they are.

- Okay so Victor is coming back to Russia to train cool….wait what do you mean you’re still going to coach Japanese Yuri? WTF? HOW WOULD THAT EVEN WORK? WTF NO.


Post Episode Twelve

- STOP FLIRTING IN THE RINK! WHY GOD WHY AM I BEING PUNISHED?

- STOP GROPING HIM VICTOR THERE ARE CHILDREN PRESENT

- YURI P STOP THROWING THINGS EVERY TIME THEY FLIRT

- I HATE ALL OF MY CHILDREN SO MUCH.

- YOU’RE ALL THE REASON I HAVE NO HAIR



Pray for Yakov

I'm finding that I really like a Victor who starts off unabashedly manipulative (because, let's face it, he can't be that fucking dense) and slowly learns how to human.

Working on that Tam Lin thing my brain won't let me leave alone. Have discovered that Yurio now thinks of any sort of flirtatious behavior between adults as "that eros shit".

I accept this 100%.

wait, shit, this isn't Jojo's Bizarre Adventure nooooooooooo I'm being sucked down the hole heeeeeeeeeelp

"Yuri, can I sleep with you?"

"Yuri, you need to take advantage of Victor now."

Man stop fucking with me with this dog, that's not cool.

ETA: TIGER STYLE FASHION

ETA2: I don't think I've ever identified with a character as much as I already have Yuri. Doesn't make friends easily, has a massive persecution complex, but also hates to lose more than anything? Yes hello please.

Finished watching the series this morning and episode 10 was totally the best. Although I was pretty satisfied with the ending.

I have to say that I'm pretty happy with the show overall, mostly because there's never anything like a "coming out". I feel like most movies/tv shows/books with LGBT characters are really about the characters finding out about themselves and learning to accept it (and, to be fair, that has matched my experience as well), but I'm starting to think that things need to go beyond that, with characters that have already figured it out and can just dive into their relationships. Yuuri and Victor never had that kind of interrogation, and I think this is for the better.

One of the creators has said in interviews that the series takes place in a world where homophobia doesn't exist. So it shouldn't ever be a big deal, which is amazing.

She's also said that in the event of a second season, she wants to put more focus on Yuuri's anxiety. Which.... yes. Yes, please.

I just finished watching the English dub, which I found super-endearing but ultimately less emotionally impactfull than the original sub. It's definitely good for the competition segments, so that you don't have to read both character monologues and announcer commentary while simultaneously trying to actually watch what's happening.

The accents are the absolute worst, though.




Also, please have another lovely character study. Selfish, manipulative Victor who gets blindsided by love and becomes a real boy is my jam.
