I love how it’s slightly implied that Phichit and Chris are really good friends.
In episode 10 you see them sitting together and having a natural interaction; they seem to be comfortable with each other.
(Also, they’re probably big Victuuri shippers)
Episode 11 gives us another glimpse of their frienship…
But what makes clear they are close friends lays in episode 12. First we have Phichit’s dream: not only allows us to know how important it is what he wants to achive, but also, in a visual matter, we realize he wants to acomplish it with his friends. It’s not surprising to see Yuuri next to him, but then we have Chris; the way the scene is visually displayed suggests that both Yuuri and Chris are the ones he considers the closest.
And then we see Phichit cheering Chris…
Being concerned for Chris current skating routine but also being supportive and proud of him.
Let’s just hope for more interaction in season 2! (if there’s one T-T)
