As you all have known, many of us, upon hearing the name Yuri on Ice, were titillated by the stunning forwardness of the title, proclaiming what appears to be a girl times girl love story about skating. It was indeed forward, but for all the wrong reasons. You see, this anime wasn't about girls at all, much less the taboo relationship and sexual tension rising between two female partners or rivals. No, the fuckers who produced this anime thought it would be wise to have it star a Russian guy with the name Yuri, as if to trick fans into watching this bishonen piece of crap. Seriously? What Russian guy is named Yuri? A famous Russian Cosmonaut? No sir, this is just a not so clever ploy to pull viewers in without integrity or honesty, and I ask you this.....can you stand that? Can you tolerate a producer who lowers himself to such depths in order to sell a freaking Yaoi anime?

BOYCOTT YURI ON ICE!

They should make a Yaoi on Ice starring a girl named Yaoi.

So the cover didn't give away anything at all?
You thought they're all macho lesbians or something?

Yes there are no Russian men named Yuri. I think PV's OP is actually pretty damn funny (don't know if he meant it to be so funny), but can see why it has been reported. There are a couple of fatal flaws in his reasoning. First and probably most obvious is (remember anime is targeted to Japanese, not weaboo wannabe husbando of 2-D lesbians), the literal romanization of the name is Yuuri. The word "yuri" regardless of the kana used, uses only 2 characters without the double vowel indicator "-". True yuri fans and any Japanese person would recognize that. A second fatal flaw is how many yuri or girl couple anime actually have the word yuri in the title? Personally I think anime is particularly notable for deceptive titles, and there is a very clever marketing strategic reason for that. If you can't tell what an anime is about by it's title, you're more likely to watch an episode or two to discover what it's about. It gets people who are stuck on a specific genre to watch titles they normally would not be interested, and that's good for the people and advertisers working with those titles.
