Yuri!!! On Ice Season 2 - Possible Release Date Being Announced This Weekend

For those of you who don’t know, this weekend Mitsurou Kubo, aka creator of Yuri!!! On Ice, and the directors, artists and voice actors of the show will be hosting an event known as Yuri!!! On Stage. Usually at events these kinds of events, big information is revealed, and that could mean we could be getting some information of the highly anticipated season 2.

Season 2 is already in the works, as animators have already begun working. News has revealed that Kubo should have the script for the next season before the end of this year. Staff members have also been making trips around the world, visiting St. Petersburg and Moscow on more than one occasion. So, this can confirm that season 2 will be taking place in Russia, with Yuuri training with Viktor for the upcoming FS season. (where season 1 left off)

Will we get a trailer this weekend? Who knows if we will. Fans who have been following the writers and staff of the show are highly anticipating one. And the staff is very aware of how badly the fans want their second season. Director Yamamoto stated in an interview that she has plenty of ideas that she wants to put into the next installment, and she came up with these brilliant ideas when she was editing episode 10 of season 1. (When Yuuri and Viktor exchanged rings).

This may hint to something happening between Viktor and Yuuri (wedding), but then again, I’m just assuming things and jumping straight to conclusions. Will we get a wedding in the second season? Again, it is unclear as to right now, but I would keep it in mind. (I sure hope we get it, tbh)

I will be keeping you all posted by giving you updates. If any of you have any questions, please feel free to leave one in my asks box and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.


These super cute YOI ‘dialogue straps’ went up for preorder today. They’re 1,090y a piece and come out in July. They’re produced by Algernon Product. 

The back of the character charm looks like this:

Can anyone translate what these little guys say?

(except for JJ of course lol)

who knows who in “Yuri on Ice”

if we divide the skaters in “Yuri on Ice” by age group, we can easily tell which ones would have already known each other or at least known about each other from previous years because they would have competed together back in juniors. Reminder: in order to compete in the Juniors circuit the skater have to be between the ages of 13 and 19. From eldest to youngest we have:

Viktor Nikiforov: 28 years old. Given that he was still a teenager around the time he debuted in the Senior’s division, he likely didn’t compete much as a Junior against other skaters we know of besides maybe Christophe and Georgi (he has a 2-3 years difference with both), however it is possible that he never faced off against Christophe and it is stated that they met when Viktor won the European Championship, when he was already a senior.

Georgi Popovich, Christophe Giacometti, Yuuri Katsuki and Michele Crispino: all of them are in the 22 - 26 years old age group, meaning that they more than likely faced against each other during their junior years at different points of time. In Christophe’s case it is said in the website that him and Yuuri met while in juniors and they have been familiar with each other for some time, by age proximity Georgi and Michele fall in the same category. Also i am assuming that Yuuri joined the senior division once he moved to Detroit at 18, by then Phichit would have been 13-14 so they likely didn’t compete then, but he likely did meet the Crispinos there as (while he doesn’t consider them his friends) Sara is friendly with him in Russia.

Phichit Chulanont, Seung-Gil Lee, Leo De La Iglesia, Jean Jacques Leroy, Otabek Altin, Emil Nekola, Guang Hong Ji, and maybe Kenjirou Minami: the 17-20 years old age group. I am adding the maybe to Minami because we don’t know yet what his standing is internationally, but Japan wise he is their second best behind Yuuri. It is fairly save to assume that Phichit and Seung-Gil would have had to compete together as they have the same age and come from the same continent. Same with Leo and JJ who even trained together for a time, in fact if JJ was a teenager when he trained with Celestino then he more than likely already knew Yuuri back then (they follow each other on Instagram) and probably Phichit as well. Otabek also trained in America and Canada in his teens and both JJ and Leo know him personally even if they are not that close. As for Guang Hong, he made his senior debut this year as well but he likely competed against Otabek and Leo (maybe even Phichit) at the very least. And I can’t say much about Emil as he mostly interacts with the Crispino twins and not much with everyone else but he may have faced Otabek and JJ.  

Yuri Plisetsky: 15 years old. His case is kinda special as while I can see every skater (even Viktor) staying for a good number of years in the Junior division (as the maximum age for single skaters is 19), we know that Yurio would have spend only 2 years as a junior since he made his senior debut as soon as he turned 15 and would have been illegible to compete at the age of 13. The only people he could have gone up against would have been Guang Hong (very likely) and Minami (not as likely). Him and Otabek probably just barely missed competing together prior to the latest Grand Prix. 

I feel like it didn’t hit me that hard until now how quickly many skaters actually retire as the younger the age group, the more members it has. Viktor is a category of his own at 28 which is a not old whatsoever but for figure skating he is already a legend (if he is still skating competitively by 32, he breaks the record). Even people around Yuuri’s age are a minority and they are around my age (I’m not even done with University). If we do get a season 2, many of these people may already be retired… 

Having been part of fandoms that obsessively analyze each panel to validate ships and argue how canon it is, I am truly grateful for YOI, where you are just whacked in the face with pure love each episode that you can’t deny even if you watched the show with only an ass cheek.
