Even though it's yuuri (Russian name) and not yuri (girl love genre), it still sounds the same to the non-Japanese native ear. I think whoever decided the name was being ironic and did it to poke sleeping dogs like this here fella who started this topic.

I, on the other hand, am looking foward to this! Please get YoI!!!, Crunchyroll!

They need to have a dub starring Yuri Lowenthal.

From that one picture of J-Yuuri (which ahhhhhh so cute) he'd be perfect.

And he's played a character named Yuuri before - in Kyo Kara Maoh!, (who was also the same voice as Suzaku Kururugi and Haseo in Japanese).

(There's also a Russian guy named Yuri in Kaleido Star, and in Tales of the Abyss, but neither were voiced by Yuri Lowenthal).

(( and Lulu still has Suzaku beat - I think there are a total of 6 characters now shared by his EN and JP voice actors))

Yeah, if you are to boycott this show, don't do it over this reason. Yuri is a guy's name in Russian, so that's that.

*sighed* Let me clear this up:

As you can see the title is: ユーリ!!! on ICE. It's written in Katakana (means it's a non-Japanese word), read as YUURI (note the ー indicates long "u"), not YURI. So it's YUURI, as in the name of the character Yuri Plisetsky, a Russian figure skater. There's also another character named Yuuri Katsuki, who is a Japanese figure skater.

Btw, the other YURI that you thought this anime was about, the one that means Girls' Love, the kanji is: 百合 (English translation actually means Lily).

I hope this would clarify the confusion over the word YURI on this show.

It's Russian for George, apparently.

Either way I probably won't watch it
I'll have to wait and see if it's actually good or just people fangirling over bishonen stuff.

Are you that mad that you can't watch because it doesn't have females in it?
