    Surpringly accurate!
    As a competitive figure skater myself, I came into this show expecting it to not be as accurate or understanding of the sport. However the animation is not only beautiful but it creatively captures the art of figure skating. I found that the animation was fairly accurate to actual figure skating, and a lot of detail was put into it. I also really enjoy the characters, especially Yuri. He is ...

    Former pro skater and EXTREMELY PLEASED
    This isn't just a review to express my love for the sport of figure skating. Yuri!!! on Ice has done something I never, ever, expected to find in an animation based on a sport as complex, artistic and complicated as figure skating. I expected something that gave glimpses of skating and a more slice of life viewpoint. Instead, we are immediately shown whole segments of mens figure skating ...

    Refreshing and Beautiful
    This is only one episode in, as I'm writing this, but so far... I can't say I've seen a slice of life anime with production values this high outside of Kids on the Slope. Every little thing about this is beautiful and detailed - the depiction of the sport, the scenery, the effects, the opening... but most of all the characterization. I haven't seen such whole, fully human characters in any ...

    Perfect Balance of Beautiful and Cute!!
    The opening is absolutely stunning and such a great start to the anime. The art design feels different from more common mainstream anime. You can tell a ton of consideration, resources, and masterful technique were used for this series. I loved the pacing of the first episode, it throws the plot into motion. There's serious moments with cute and funny ones mixed in. This series is going to be a ...

    A sports anime has never looked or felt so good! Gorgeous movement animation, charming comedy, and a lovely natural romance.
    [Written after Episode 7]

    I'm so happy this show is getting the popularity and acclaim it richly deserves.

    It's a sports anime that feels like a meticulously detailed love letter to the sport it portrays.

    It's a love story that develops organically and without any stupid unnecessary drama, but with just enough friction for character growth and communication building.

    It subverts ...

    A very beautiful and moving show
    For all the people who want to hate because they feel this show may be too effeminate...

    I feel sorry for you. This show is truly beautiful, almost magical. The music goes perfectly with the flow of the story. The actual skating scenes truly took my breath away. I wasn't prepared for it at all. I've always loved figure skating for how much technicality there was and how they were able to make ...

    Fantastic Animation. Believable Characters. Rewatch-worthy.
    This show is quickly becoming one of my favourite anime. Once in a blue moon, there comes along a show that I enjoy rewatching again and again. This is one of them.

    This is not an anime where you have to watch three or four episodes before you really get into it. If you don't like the first episode, you probably won't like the rest of the show. However, I was hooked from the first episode, ...

    Cannot Praise Enough
    Truly dazzling animation, especially the fluid and enthralling skating sequences. Wonderful music, and a break from too much contrived drama. By and large, the figure skating community is portrayed as close-knit and supportive, and it really allows you to feel good about all the characters. Plus, this is shaping up to be one of the sweetest, most genuine gay romances I've seen in anime.

    Thank you Yuri On Ice
    Thank you, Yuri on ICE, for portraying a healthy, mature, homosexual relationship.
    Thank you for not putting a label on it, for not binding it to a typical, “Boy’s love,” genre. You’ve cast away the stereotypes, the stigma surrounding that category by abandoning it altogether, because love is love. It should have never needed caution tape surrounding it in the first place.

    By not making their ...
