2013 cup of china

The year in Yuri on Ice

Okay, so I wanted to know what the year in Yuri on Ice is. It felt like everyone is just assuming that it would be the current 16/17 season, but while we got several information on the month, we never got the year.

And as it turns out, it’s not 2016.

In the first episode we saw the results of Yuuri’s last Grand Prix Final.

Notice the logo at the top of the results?

It looks like the one from the GPF 2012 in Sochi, only mirror-inverted.

Then, in the latest episode we got another small explanation/recap how the Grand Prix Series works. And we get this logo of the current season:

And this is the logo of the GPF 2013:

Which doesn’t just look like the one in Yuri on Ice, it is the same exact one.

So, Yuri on Ice seems to be set during the 2013/2014 season. It also matches the order of the Cups. The events are not always in the same order, but in 2013 it was this:

  • 2013 Skate America: October  18–20
  • 2013 Skate  Canada: October  25–27
  • 2013 Cup of China: November  1–3
  • 2013 NHK Trophy: November  8–10
  • 2013 Trophée de France: November  15–17
  • 2013 Rostelecom Cup: November  22–24

I guess we could safely assume that this is the time frame for the Cups in the anime too. We didn’t get the date of the Cup of China in the anime, but this means, episode 6 is happening in the beginning of November.

rikuyomi  asked:

While shooting, do any of the bugs or other wildlife you encounter show hostility towards you?

That very much depends on the type of insect of course and on how threatened they feel. I certainly don’t set out to provoke them, but there is no denying a defensive pose or threat display usually makes for a more interesting photo.

I have been stung by Nocturnal Hornets while doing night shooting (see that tumblr post HERE) and I have certainly been intimidated by Predatory Hornets (Vespa velutina) while trying to photograph them and even when not trying to photograph them…..

The Stinging Nettle Slug Caterpillars of the Limacodid Cup Moths are passively hostile by default and even the slightest brush against them inflicts a seriously painful sting. This can happen while searching for them amongst foliage or while adjusting the foliage around a subject so as to get a clear shot. I have experienced this many times…..

And the Chalcosiine Day-flying Moth Caterpillars (Zygaenidae) express their displeasure by excreting droplets of cyanide from the tubercles on their skin….

Otherwise, hostility usually takes the form of threat displays which in themselves are harmless but intended to strike fear in my heart and confusion in my mind and send me scurrying away with my tail between my legs…..

I usually try not to handle my subjects, but when I do it is to give some sense of scale or to relocate them from hazardous situations. Particularly with the larger insects, although they are not intentionally harmful in themselves, the sheer size of their anatomy means sharp claws and strong jaws have drawn blood on occasion as well….
