do you think sayo yamamoto knew how big yuri on ice would be? when she first came up with it, trying so hard to make that idea a reality - finding people willing to work with her, to make this project happen - do you think she knew? she is such an inspiration. she had a vision, and it took her years, but she made it happen, an amazing woman, a director, a creator. can u imagine the stamina?? she created the most beautiful scenes in the show, the ones that carry the feelings so perfectly that it just touched everyone, it took us by surprise, just wept us off our feet. i am so thankful - it came out of nowhere and it means so lot for people to finally see such passion for a sport combined with a genuinely healthy (gay) relationship, mental health issues and portraying the sport so accurately that even real life skaters became outspoken fans. do you think she knew?
I'm so happy seeing people so happy with pirates. This saga has been such a huge part of my life, it's so great to see it rounding out so well.
