Over the weekend Crunchyroll announced plans to simulcast the Sayo Yamamoto-directed Yuri!!! On ICE anime, and now they're back with details. The series officially begins on Wednesday, October 5 at 12:00pm Pacific Time, and will be available to Crunchyroll members worldwide except for Japan and China.
Yuri Katsuki carried the hope of all Japan on his shoulders in the Figure Skating Grand Prix, but suffered a crushing defeat in the finals. He returned to his hometown in Kyushu and hid away in his family's home, half wanting to continue skating and half wanting to retire. That was when the five-time consecutive world champion, Viktor Nikiforov, suddenly showed up with his teammate, Yuri Plisetsky, a young skater starting to surpass his seniors. And so the two Yuris and the Russian champion Viktor set out to compete in a Grand Prix like none the world has ever seen!
