Thank you YOI
I wasn’t really familiar with ice-skating, but I always watched this sport with wondering eyes. So much beautiful forms, music and costums. So the first time I heard about this ice-skating anime, I was very excited to see what they could do with it. And in the end, I would have never expected I would just fell for it with all my soul.
Thank you for this animation. Despite the certain lack of budget for some skating scenes, the most of them were just stunning. I still remember the first episode when Yuuri is skating Viktor’s program, I was hypnotized and couldn’t believe how beautiful animated it was.
But not only that, they managed to make you FEEL the skating, all the emotions through each performances. Maybe the animation wasn’t perfect all the time, but it had passion and heart.
Thank you for those characters. Following Yuuri, Yurio and the others, seeing them through their path, their struggles, their doubts, their success, their cherishing moments………….. just seeing them growing for the better. It was such a travel full of different emotions. And in the end, it didn’t really matter who was gonna win, we supported them all, we cried with them, we loved them…..and really, we will miss them….
Thank you for the music. You certainly made my eyes happy, but you made my ears melting. It was so beautiful, and I love the meanings for each of them. They made me even more emotional, it was resonating in me, my heart was beating at the same rythm. Same for the opening and ending. I think everyone is agree, but damn, how catchy they are ^^ I’m sure we’ll still have them in mind for many many times.
And of course, thank you for Victuuri. A month ago, I was waiting for this anime who would finally dare to propose a true love story between a same sex pairing, without being treated like fanservice, but just something that would be shown naturally, where gender wouldn’t matter. And even now, I can’t believe that we finally had it. As much YOI was the story of Yuuri for the Gold, it was also the story of two characters falling in love and that’s it. Simple. But absolutely beautiful. And I can’t thank the creators enough for that. Love wins!
Also, thank you to the fandom. It made me feel just so much happy to enjoy this anime with everyone. But YOI is not finished, as long the fandom is here, it will never end :) so let’s keep loving him for a long long time!!!!
