Plot Summary


The show's story revolves around Yuri Katsuki, who carried all of Japan's hopes on his shoulders to win at the Gran Prix Finale ice skating competition, but suffered a crushing defeat. He returns home to Kyushu and half feels like he wants to retire, and half feels like he wants to continue ice skating. With those mixed feelings swirling inside him, he confines himself inside his parents house. Suddenly the five-time consecutive world championship ice skater Viktor Nikiforov appears before him, and along with him is Yuri Plisetsky, a young Russian figure skater who is already defeating his seniors. Viktor and both Yuris take up the challenge on an unprecedented Gran Prix series.

Episode 1

The music is really something here, and I love that opening animation there in the style that Mappa is well known for as far as theme song animation goes. Anyway, it's mostly describes Yuri K.'s life as he collapsed under pressure at the grand prix, and for five years he had half-heartedly retired from the sport. But then after going through college, he is back as he skates his idol Victor's routine, and it went viral leading to the skating legend coming to train him. That was a nice way to begin this, and the music is just amazing. It will be interesting to see what happens when the Yuris get together as Yuri P. things pretty lowly of Yuri K., and understandably so.

Bring on all the sports glory this season, and here I thought I would only have Haik and maybe All Outs (Fingers crossed), but now this with ping pong girls .

I see a lot of people picking on this show and I understand that it's pretty fanservicey but honestly? I am more then willing to look past that for the beautiful skating animation. Cause wow, it's is seriously something



Plus, the opening is awesome.

I agree, I wasn't completely sure if I would enjoy this or not because it seemed like yet another bishonen-fanservice type show, but the animation and characters really got me hooked. This show may end up being the best of the season

Easily the best premiere of the season so far. The animation was gorgeous and the characters' movements were so natural. The lead is likable and I'm looking forward to meet the supporting cast as well.

+Amazing animation
+Lovable characters
+Chibi comedy

Yup I am very glad I gave this show a chance shaping up to be one of my favorites.

I don't know what it is but the chibi style and comedy sort of remind me of Full Metal Alchemist... hmm probably just me.

Episode 1:

It was a very enjoyable start.

Meanwhile...

Yuuri x Yuuko's ship ( TДT)
Welp... that ship sank really fast...


Pisses me off a little that she ended up with the mofo bully that called Yuuri a 'pig'... (#^ω^)

We got also a beefcake scene for the girls/ yaoi fans(?)

Looking forward for next episode. :3

The comedy was a bit awkward in places but the skating animation was gorgeous. It's worth following just for that.

woohoo . ..ice skating sports anime !!! This was an awesome first episode

The animation is wonderful !!! I love it !!! and the characters are interesting !!! and lots of funny moments, I also love the seiyuu speech pattern here .Its very mixed with some Kyushu accent to some flat natural speech to typical seiyuu expressive speech .

but what got me was the title "Yuri on Ice " , I wasnt sure what to think at first but thank goodness, its just his name

I have tell a Yuri I know about this

It always cracks me up when foreign character are speaking japanese,.,,, I love Suwabe san but it would be difficult to do russian accent in japanese
