Oh, and I'm starting a second watch and paying super close attention to honorifics. Victor NEVER gets one from Yuri as far as I can tell, and now I'm headcanoning that when Victor noticed it made him all nervous, like doesn't he even LIKE me?? And it took him forever to find one of Yuri's Japanese friends who would stop laughing long enough to set him straight.

And oh my god I haven't written anything for real in like fifteen years and I've spat out 5000 words of fanfiction in four days pls help

there's no honourifics because they're talking in english most of the time. yuri's japanese gets a bit weird when he gets going (specifically ep 10 during banquet), whereas his "standard" japanese seems to be when he's speaking the lingua franca of english with all the other skaters (including viktor).

there's a few times where i think viktor is picking up some japanese vocab, and definitely where yuri is doing the same with russian. it's just so cute and heartwarming to see in a mainstream anime.

ps: pm your fanfic pls


pps: srsly pm it

I've been told that the dub does a better job highlighting who is speaking which languages, but I'm waiting until it's all out before I watch it so I can mainline it.

basically whenever yuri gets super-mumbly, he's speaking japanese. that's the rule of thumb. i can probably give transcripts of J and E if you wanted

The Japanese title of the anime is Yuuri on Ice, not Yuri on ice. Yuuri is a boy's name, more or less meaning "courageous" when it's written with the characters used for the protagonist in this show. Yuri is a girl's name, meaning "lily." The girl-girl manga genre comes from the girl's name.

For context, Japanese places a lot more emphasis than English on the length of vowels. It's one of the biggest hurdles English speakers having in learning spoken Japanese, which otherwise is relatively easy to pronounce and listen to because it doesn't have very many sounds. But this kind of difference in vowel elongation that can be hard for some non-Japanese speakers to parse is the difference between "advisor" (顧問) and "anus"(肛門), for example.

JJ is definitely my favourite character in the show. I'm so glad that only was a Canadian in the show (This never happens) but he was also the closest thing to an antagonist at the end (This never happens). Even if he wasn't Canadian, he was the only character I could really at all relate to and he would definitely be the best in a fist fight. The dude is a fuckin king.

I definitely relate to Yuuri and his crippling anxiety the most.

Linking because the artist has asked for their art to not be reposted.

Phichit is literally the best and must be protected at all costs.

Real life gay figure skater Johnny Weir's response to watching the first episode

EDIT: The image in the link is kind of NSFW

Kinda NSFW image there (it's the shot of Victor's 99%-full-frontal-except-dong-barely-obscured from ep 1) as a heads up to anyone who might click that link at work.

JJ: I bet I myself can perform this better than them both

Phichit: I know they're not gonna get married unless Yuuri wins a gold medal but who knows life is full of surprise so here my opinions on how the wedding should be organized *shows a notebook filled with ideas and sketches and illustrations*

Christophe: Oh dear I guess Viktor wouldn't let Yurri do another pole dance with me at the banquet this year but what if I get them both drunk off their balls hell yeah maybe that'll distract Viktor for some minutes

Yakov: one Yuri was already too much to handle now I might get TWO YURI'S AND ONE VIKTOR NIKIFOROV

Michele: they look so adorable skating side by side I wish Sara and I would get to skate like that one day

Sara: brother I know you love me but you need to stop, like, right now

I just did a second watch-through of the series today.

On my first watch, I was completely caught up in everything, but I had a hard time differentiating some of the skaters who weren't finalists, and I missed a lot of details. Like the fact that Yuri's dog dying unexpectedly was a huge reason he'd blown the last Grand Prix Final. Or the competition sleeping arrangements! I held my breath through 11-12, bouncing with glee.

This time I was able to absorb so much more and I basically sobbed the entire way through 12.

Holy fuck, this show is so good.

JJ can still eat a bag of dicks, though

Also, Christophe greeting Yuri with an ass-grab in China makes SO MUCH SENSE after watching 10.

Although, what banquet hall comes equipped with a stripper pole?

That must be Chris' superpower; he can produce stripper poles from thin air. This is 100% canon and I will die on this hill.

I love horrible stupid JJ and his horrible stupid hand signs and his horrible stupid song that occasionally I sing because I'm horrible and stupid.

I love the way he horrible stupid chokes on Otabek's evil eye and then skates around crying with his horrible stupid testes in his lungs for like five minutes and I love how for a hot second I'm like YES SUCK IT FEAST ON YOUR OWN ORGANS and then immediately it becomes oh god poor horrible stupid baby you're on a stage too and you're making yourself out of nothing too and you're scared too and you're horrible and stupid but I can't wish hate on you look I'm singing, get up and smile, you can do it, good job any second now object permanence will set in and you'll WALK and I'll be very very proud of you, you trash child.

And then twenty minutes later I'm over it and he can go snort the River Thames again.

Yup that ass grab transforms from weird gaijin being too forward or friendly to a hey, sugar tits, how you been doing these past few months.

Stripper poles are so portable/easy to assemble or disassemble. So long as there's a hole in the floor to screw* it firmly in they can be basically anywhere! They're great for party tricks!

This is an amazing coincidence as it coincides perfectly with Christophe's unsettling tendency to screw a hole directly into the ground with his pelvis out of sheer oversaturated frustration whenever he's not near a stripper pole. He's the problem and the solution!

So much property damage tho

WAY more Minami, since he obvs now has an open invitation to drop in at Yu-Topia whenever he wants!


I wrote a thing about Phichit. It is fluffy and sweet and 100% canon I will fight anyone who claims differently. You can read it if you want.

I also wrote a Victor-POV thing about Yuri's depression/anxiety. It is basically 1800 words of me pouring the pureed soupy remains of my once-beating heart onto a keyboard. You can read it if you want, too.

I also wrote a smutty thing that's full of smut but I'm not linking that here.
