ep: 5

I read some tags and comments on one of my latest post that claim that Viktor is harassing Yuuri during the course of the show and this is just so weird to me?

Yes, we can all agree that during the first days, Viktor is pushy because he came to Hasetsu most likely believing that Yuuri remembered the banquet and showed interested in him, so he acts according to that belief

But it’s obvious that he quickly realizes that the Yuuri he met at the banquet wasn’t an image of the real Yuuri, after speaking to the people close to Yuuri and observing Yuuri himself

Just look at his reaction when Yuuri shows him affectionate physical contact for the first time during the Hot Springs on Ice event

HE’S SO SURPRISED FOR A BRIEF MOMENT BEFORE COLLECTING HIMSELF

To me his surprise hints that he doesn’t really expect a lot of direct physical affection in return from Yuuri at this point in their relationship? This contrasts a lot with their first interactions, where he instead is surprised when Yuuri retreats from him. But even if he might have doubts about what Yuuri feels for him he never becomes withdrawn or salty and just continues to wholeheartedly support Yuuri and it says a lot about what a compassionate and respectful character Viktor is

We see the exact same reaction in episode 6 when Yuuri suddenly gets into his face

I just really think it’s important to note that while Viktor always shows his interest in Yuuri he changes his line of approach a bit when he gets to know more about how shy and easily embarrassed Yuuri is. He always respects Yuuri and never push him too far? I mean sure Yuuri gets flustered a lot but who doesn’t when someone you like acts affectionate towards you?

We can clearly see that by episode 6 Yuuri is fully comfortable with Viktor being close to him, showing how much their relationship developed in the past months

Viktor is really just a fool in love and he pursues that affection without ever letting any frustrations go out over Yuuri’s anxiety and insecurities (not counting the incident in episode 7, since that was unrelated to his romantic feelings for Yuuri and instead about him feeling unable to help Yuuri deal with his anxiety attacks) 

as Yuuri so eloquently said

  • Yaoi Anime: Exaggerated gay scenes + obvious dynamics
  • Non-Yaoi Anime: Certain exaggerated gay scenes + Usually fluffy
  • Sports Anime: You will know when its an almost gay scene
  • Yuri!!! on Ice: NOT SURE IF THAT WAS MEANT TO BE A GAY SCENE BUT THERE WAS NO STRAIGHT REASON FOR THAT TO HAPPEN + FUCK DYNAMICS THEY'RE CANON + THEY'RE SO NATURALLY GAY YOU CAN'T EVEN FIGHT IT ANYMORE + GAY SCENES OCCUR SO NATURALLY THAT YOU STOP QUESTIONING EVERYTHING
