A surprisingly fantastic anime with deep emotional themes and three-dimensional, rich, and colorful characters.
A surprisingly phenomenal anime with deep emotional themes and three-dimensional, rich, and colorful characters.
Yuri on Ice starts out seeming like a regular anime that is meant to appeal to the regular anime fan base. At first, the main three characters come across as fairly one-dimensional characters; Yuri is an introverted young man without a lot of friends, Viktor is a pretty boy who can charm basically anyone, and Yurio is an angry and victory obsessed kid.
However, it takes a turn as we are shown each of the characters' thoughts. Especially when the skaters go on the ice, we get to explore the characters mind and their reason for choosing their music and programs. Often times, their programs are related to something that is important to them, and while skating, most of the show's character development takes place. A truly enchanting show that is sure to capture your attention.
*Side note: The show's figure skating animation is quite impressive.
