YURI ON ICE EPISODE 10 REACTION
okay i swear to God, i know that we were all half-joking with the ring thing, i swear it never even crossed my mind that they were gonna do it, i was like “oh man wouldn’t it be nice if it was rings but its fine, its gonna be the gold medal anyway so im still happy” but once again, just like the kiss and everything, THEY HAVE MANAGED TO LITERALLY OUTGAY THEMSELVES. AGAIN.
im so happy right now i cannot even, this has been like the best day, and its only 9am here. to think that months ago i couldnt even fathom getting into an anime, much less a sports anime, since i really didnt enjoy that kind of queerbaiting tactic that is used most often, where you think that the characters have a real connection, but it turns out that the are just best friends and they both had girlfriends all along or some shizz.
but Yuri on ice has brought us to characters who have a real, genuine connection, and a relationship that by no means is not perfect, but has and consistently does bring the very best out of each person, and is allowing them to enjoy their life, work hard and achieve their goals at the same time. we, as a fandom, are so spoilt /pats haikyuu and free stans on the shoulder/.
but anyways, onto the episode.
in all honesty, i think alot of people will not like this episode - its not action packed, no competition or whatever, but it really balances out the pacing of the last couple of episodes. its been pretty intense lately, so taking a break and giving us alittle domestic! is really nice, and putting it from victors perspective is nothing short of pure genius.
we finally get a glimpse of what is going on in that sliver-haired head of his, and it looks like what i suspected was right - hes not trying to take advantage of anyone, and hes still just trying to figure out what he wants to do with his life. there is no ulterior motive, and we even get to see that (albeit he was smashed) but Yuuri himself actually asked Victor to be his coach. that that moment, while his cheeks were red and his eyes were hazy, has been on Victors mind ever since, and seeing him skate that program must have been what finally brought Victor there. and i dont really see any evidence of him missing competition, or any hints in his monologues that he feels empty, or that he wants to go back - in fact, sounds to me like he had really started living when he came to hasetsu and joined Yuuri. and that just like Yuuri had begun to understand love when Victor came into his life, Victor had begun to understand real love with Yuuri by his side.
their relationship is so pure, and anyone who tries to tell me otherwise can fight me.
anyways, can we also just talk about our shipper on deck Phitchit? i fcking love that guy, i think he is the most realistic depiction of a best friend, like as if yall wouldn’t yell to a packed restaurant that you best friend was married as a show of support. because i know i sure as hell would!~
he is literally all of us.
and it was nice to see everyone, Leo and Guanghong killed me they are so freakin cute, and minami is adorable, he literally went to hasetsu to cheer Yuuri on. im curious about who is bothering Seunggil, i wonder if it was Mila, since he did use feminine pronouns.
and to our top 6,its crazy how in just in this short time we have fallen in love with
most all of you, best of luck to you all in the Grand Prix final, but lets end this series with a wedding, huh? a Victuuri wedding
see yall next week
they can never take this away from us.
