I just realized something...
I’m so fired up! It’s time to make a theory!
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° ) …..
Okay, let’s get started!
N°1 thing to KNOW:
There is a HUGE progression between episode 3 and 6.
First of all, I’m sure you saw the moment where Yuuri lacked his confident at the beginning of anime. Viktor’s job is to give a confident to Yuuri (it mentioned in episode 2).
Some scenes of episode 3:
Yuuri was kinda shy, he was too nervous when Viktor was here.
Viktor wasn’t surprised.
He knew that Yuuri’s Eros is Pork Cutlet bowls. That was why he said it to make Yuuri become ‘strong’ but he didn’t know yet what is love.
As you see, Viktor was cheering up Yuuri (just like a student-coach relationship).
But, something has changed in episode 6 :
It’s clearly that he wants Viktor. He would be SO pissed off if Viktor is taken away
from someone. He even doesn’t care if the whole world hate him. He isn’t interested in women anymore since Yuuko is married.
Viktor starts to see him something off but yet he still doesn’t know Yuuri loves him. He tries to guess hardly what is Yuuri’s true Eros.
Remember these scenes?
Viktor’s eyes look like more dark without aurora (even if it’s a shadow). He asked him to show him his Eros, as if he dared him to do it.
So he did! (Let’s say thanks to these pictures, Yuuri becomes more confident!)
Viktor tells him to not think about Pork Cutlet Bowls & women.
Viktor was surprised when Yuuri gets what Viktor told him. Yuuri will seduce him PICTURING himself (not Pork Cutlet Bowls & women). The real seducive that will make Viktor fall in love.
These moments are importants: Yuuri licks his tongue to seduce, then turns to look at Viktor.
Viktor’s eye shows vivid-colors that shines than usual. It brightes more than in episode 3.
He proved it.
Viktor looks so happy that he could hug Yuuri again. But, I bet he forgets what did he tell to Yuuri in episode 3.
Love wins. What does it exactly means…?
It is thanks to Viktor. Yuuri has some feelings he never had. He never had any girlfriend. He doesn’t know what love is. Now, he feels something like ‘love’ towards to Viktor so he showed his “half true” Eros.
N°2 thing to KNOW:
As we were informed that YOI has total 12 episodes. It’s a number divided by 3. (4 * 3 = 12)
Why 4? Because 3, 6, 9, 12. That is where Viktor’s and Yuuri’s REAL relationships begin from episode 3.
If you count the episodes, the “real Viktuuri” scenes appear EVERY 3 episodes and that proves Viktor’s and Yuuri’s relationships, which are in progress, have improved a LOT during the rest of episodes.
I made a little preview to be more clearly:
Therebefore, Yuuri becomes more confident and, since the episode 6, he starts to make sure that no one takes Viktor away from his student, even if he had to be hated by the whole world!
I’m excited to see what will happen in whole episode, mainly episode 9 and 12!
N°3 thing to KNOW (the result) :
We might have a chance that Yuuri will show his FULL and TRUE Eros to Viktor in between episode 9 - 12.
Once Yuuri finds his true self after finished his performance in The Grand Prix Finals, Viktor is still happy for his student BUT he prevents that he will go back to Russia. There is a thing that I’m more sure than anything is that Yuuri takes Viktor’s hand and tells him that he doesn’t want him to leave. Yuuri looks a way more than sexy that makes him want to rest (I mean his appreance, compared to the first episode!), Viktor is really surprised how Yuuri has changed so much. There is a soft kiss between them and the time stops while they kiss. The flashback appears from the beginning to end. The time reverses in the day where they met, they had a lot of fun, coaching etc. In the end the narrator speaks “He was a genius who never fails to surprise me.” — as if it were Viktor’s thought, it is Yuuri who never fails to surprise him since his first coach with Yuuri.
The scene cuts in black… the end. (I don’t know if there will be a marriage, but, to be honest it would be awesome to see them getting married!)
That is what Eros/Love made in this anime:
- Yuuri is inspired by Viktor,
- Yuuri fells in love (in the meaning of platonic, not romantic) with Viktor by imagining “Pork Cutlet bowls”,
- Yuuri makes his effort to find his true Eros, but it takes too long for him to realize,
- Viktor helps him to find what is the meaning of Eros,
* * * * *
If my theory is correct, that means in episode 9 will be something
extra (like a peck/kiss?) before Viktor sends Yuuri off to skate.
Viktor’s and Yuuri’s hands are held firmly, their looks reunited.
“If you dare to look at someone else, I’ll make you mine.”
Yuuri approaches and gives a small kiss on Viktor’s soft lips, that is the best way to keep Viktor on his mind, then he goes off to skate.
Viktor is speechless. His mind has gone blank and his heart is racing fast than he would imagine. He is reddening.
As the same for the last episode,
Before Yuuri starts his performance at The Grand Prix Finals, Viktor holds slighty Yuuri’s hands and the way Viktor looks at Yuuri is more romantically than before.
“I hope you won’t mess the performance. This is the most important evenement.” - Viktor is worried for Yuuri’s situation.
Yuuri puts his soft hand on Viktor’s back neck, forcing to Viktor approach him, “I promise I will not.” - he whispers and kisses on Viktor’s jaw, then he goes off to enthrall the entire audience.
I apologize for my Bad English (_ _ ;)
EDIT: I forgot about the coaching fee… oops ^^;
