Shouldn't 'Yuri on Ice' be 'Yaoi on Ice' ?

I do not know, but for the second season, it should be renamed Popsicles and have many a Popsicle scene to increase gayness by 900%.

My heart goes out to anyone with the name Yuri, who's had to put up with this crap their whole life.

Somewhat reminds me of Yuri Lowell. Has yuri in da name, has long hair, you'd think he'd be a woman.

Isn't this joke as ubiquitous as "why did the chicken cross the road?" at this point?

back on topic, I find it super hilarious that someone reported the OP's post. It adds another dimension to the humor

I doubt it'd be that many. The only reason it gets joked about so much with Yuri on Ice is because yuri and yaoi are essentially two sides of the same coin, so it's just ironic that a show called Yuri on Ice has no yuri, so to speak, but yaoi, instead.

Eh, since it has a couple of characters named Yuri, not Yaoi, I would say it's appropriate as is.

百合, 勇利, and Юрий are all completely different things, especially to people in Japan who are used to words with different kanji that sound the same. I actually mentioned that Western-fan freakout to someone in Japan, and they thought it was completely ridiculous.

In Japan, it's just a clever pun for genderbend doujins. Of which there are many. Look them up.

(and 有利 as in Kyo Kara Maou, for that matter. Remember that show? Anyone? Also Kaleido Star. Which was a yuri show about acrobats. And there was only one hot guy and his name was....)

Yes, and about half as funny.

Isn't Yuri one of those sexually ambiguous names like Pat?
