Attendees can cheer for their favorite skater with special customizable fans.
Now that Yuri!!! on ICE has ended, there's nothing many fans want to do more than watch it again. And again. Fortunately, fans in Japan will have a chance to do this in style, thanks to an upcoming marathon event to be held at TOHO Cinemas Roppongi Hills.
The all-night screening of the entire series will take place February 11 starting at 10 pm. It will also include a talk show segment, featuring guest appearances by Mitsurou Kubo (storyboard, original concept and character design for the series) and voice actors Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Yuri Katsuki), Junichi Suwabe (Victor), and Kouki Uchiyama (Yuri Plisetsky).
The talk show and marathon will be streamed live to 47 cinemas around the country. Seats at the main theater are sold out, with pre-orders for tickets at the streaming cinemas already going fast.
Tickets to the event are 3,000 yen each, and come with a "cheering fan" and stickers featuring the faces of various characters. Audience members can use the stickers to decorate the fan to cheer for their favorites.
