Default I Am Total Victuri Trash (Yuri!!! on Ice Squee Thread)

Quote:
i love how viktor was like “if you can charm me you can charm anyone” like he didn’t see one (1) video of katsuki yuri and promptly fly across the globe with his dick out
Quote:
You know what really bothers me about yoi??
When yurio and yuuri go against each other for Viktor, everyone’s shocked yuuri got assigned Eros instead of yurio.

That boy is 15, and thinks animal print is the epitome of style.
What the hell would he know about being sexy, he’s a total goober

Why is an anime about gay men called Yuri? I know that's one of the the main character's names, but it's all I can think of.

It's two of the main characters' names. You have Japanese Yuri, and Russian Yuri, who is given the nickname Yurio to make things less confusing.

I don't ship Yuri and Otabek because that poor angry kitten needs at least one friend who he doesn't actively pretend to hate.

In Japanese, it's not confusing at all. "Yuuri" is a completely different and distinct word from "yuri" and nobody would mistake the two.

The name "Yuri" was chosen because, in a rare case of convergent evolution, is a name in both Japanese and Russian. So you could have a story about dual-Yuris for some nifty juxtaposition.

the best thing about yurio is all the fodder yuri and viktor are going to have in like four years.


if yurio thought that yuri's reaction to the banquet photo galleries was bad...

Oh, heavens yes. He's going to have to get over it, though, since Phichit is basically going to be following them around with a video camera for the rest of their lives.

Honestly, I can't with Chris. I want to like him, but characters who are that forward with their sexuality make me super-uncomfortable.

I think there's a lot there TO like so I'll keep trying...

let's just say that my other half really appreciates where the animation budget went in yoi



seriously though for all he gets randy on the rink, he's a kind and sensitive rival to both yuri and viktor throughout the series.

He is, and I really appreciate that!

JJ can eat a bag of dicks, though.
