Yuri on Ice interview translation - Animage 2017/01 (p20-23)
I was going to post this last week but gave priority to the BD stuff. This will be the final interview from the booklet that came with January Animage! There’s still an interview with Kenji Miyamoto left untranslated, but it will be taken care of by @whiteboxgems whenever she has time! I’ll reblog it when it’s around.
This is actually 2 interviews, I’m posting them together because they were one after the other and (main reason) because the second one is very short. A few notes below to better understand the interviews.
The first one is with Yuuichirou Hayashi, the one who created the ending (ED = ending by the way) footage. I have the feeling someone previously posted translations of the captions under the ED screenshots, but I don’t remember where and I’m pretty sure it was just the captions and not the interview parts, so here you have it complete. This one is pretty interesting because he explains in detail how they created the ED, and has some extra information on cut scenes etc. Definitely a must read in my opinion!
The second one is a short interview with Kayoko Ishikawa, the one who did the costume designs. Here you might think: didn’t Chacott design the costumes? I’ll explain. It’s more or less like with Mitsurou Kubo and Tadashi Hiramatsu: Kubo created the original designs for the characters, from scratch, and Hiramatsu transformed them into designs specifically created for animation, therefore with simpler lines, detailed expression sheets and so on. Likewise, Chacott did the original designs for the costumes, from scratch, based on the indications by Yamamoto and Kubo, and then the anime’s costume designer simplified and modified them so that they would be suitable to be animated. (Before actually animating them there’s a further step: the anime’s color designer is going to decide the exact colors, shadows and highlights included, that will be used inside the anime. I translated an interview with the color designer Izumi Hirose some time ago)
I usually don’t add pictures but this time I felt that it would be better to add them as an immediate reference. However, they are just for reference and are not meant to be visually stunning, so please bear with the quality because I just took photos of the magazine with my phone and quickly edited them.
Translation under the cut! (kind of image-heavy)

we broke up, my ex-girlfriend and I stayed close friends. We lived
together until our lease was up. I met the boyfriend who is now her
fiancé. And she often visited my parents to help take care of our pets
while I’m away. Because of this, my family and I decided to trust her
with a house key. Even after the breakup, my family loved her, treated
her like one of our own, and would do anything for her.
Big mistake. The day after I left home for a nine-month internship,
my parents called to say that someone had broken in and stolen ~$800
cash. We checked the secret security cameras and, sure enough, it was
the ex. My parents were devastated. For reasons, my parents decided not
to press charges but just to cut ties, which we did a few weeks ago.
The revenge? I just found out from a mutual friend that her fiancé,
who I thought was a wonderful guy, is cheating on her. Ordinarily I’d
tell her; even an ex doesn’t deserve to be cheated on. But a
backstabbing thief? Fuck it, she can find out the hard way.
Doing nothing can still be a form of revenge, right?
EDIT: For those mentioning the backlash that this might cause her
fiancé, this just occurred to me: the guy is here via DACA from a fairly
dangerous country, and I don’t know if she could use this against him
in any way.
EDIT 2: Since a few people asked, I already confronted her about
this. She denied it until I told her about the security photos. Then she
immediately confirmed it, but vastly downplayed how much money she
took. I told her to stay away from me and my family.

“(Y/N), (Y/N), (Y/N),’’ Tom whined from his spot on the couch. You sighed in annoyance, “Tom I’m editing if I don’t get these pictures sent to vogue by midnight there never hiring me again.’’
‘’But (Y/N), we where supposed to go and get something to eat three hours ago! I’m a growing person (Y/N) I need food.’’ Your boyfriend said dramatically flopping around the couch.
“Tom I’ll make you a sandwich if stop wailing like baby alright? Just for the love of god let me finish.” You replied, immediately going back to your computer to edit the photos you took at the vogue New York shot. A couple of months ago you started taking pictures for fun here and there, posting them online for the world to see. Companies started messaging you asking you to do shots for them. Your photography business blew up and suddenly you were being asked to join the Marvel’s team of publicists. You then met Tom, and his best mate Harrison and the three of you immediately hit it off becoming instant friends, and even sharing an apartment. You and Tom became closer over a short period of time, and started going out only after being friends for a few months.
‘’You can only suffer through my whining for so long until you get up and make me a sandwich.’’ You could here Tom groaning and moaning about he never got his food as you finished up editing your last picture. Turning around to look at him you saw that he had taken an awkward position on the couch, his legs in the air and his heading hanging over the ledge, you couldn’t help but giggle.
“Tom, get up, or else I’m not making you a sandwich.’’ you said making you way over to the kitchen. Hearing him mumble something in response, you decided to make yourself a sandwich. You quickly spread mayo on your bread but some chicken and cheese on it and threw it into the toaster oven. While waiting for the cheese to melt on your sandwich you called Tom once again, ‘’Tom if you don’t get up and tell me what you want I’m not making you one.’’
Hearing the oven beep, you went to grab your sandwich before finishing it off with lettuce and cucumbers. Walking over to the couch where your boyfriend was currently laying on, ‘’Tom, please move.’’
Tom peaked his eye open, ‘’Do i not get a sandwich?”
“You didn’t say anything when i asked.”
‘’I’m not moving for you.”
“Move you absolute doof.’’ You said putting down your sandwich so you could move his legs to sit down. As you went to grab his legs Tom pulled you down into his chest holding you tightly.
“Tom get off of me!’’ you exclaimed to him, he didn’t listen somehow bringing you closer to him and comfortably lying you both on the couch. “If i can’t have the sandwich, then so can’t you, which means i get to have you.’’
“Tom, get off me!’’
“Shhh.” Tom said kissing your forehead, ‘’Just take a quick nap with me.’’ Defeated, yo got comfortable against his chest and let his heart beat lull you to sleep.
You were vaguely awake when you recognized Harrison’s voice,’’ They’re so cute when they’re asleep. But i am taking this sandwich, (Y/N) knows how to make a bloody good sandwich.’’
Ok but like imagine the missus comming home super late from work and she totally forgot to tell Harry and he just thinks the worse getting worried sick and he acts so overprotective when she arrives home? Worried and protective Harry is the best! 😍
He’d be pacing the living room from the moment you were meant to arrive home, refusing to sit himself down or go to bed, checking his phone every so often in case he missed a text or a call from the missus. His mind wandering to the worst things possible that could have happened on your way home from work; car accident, an attack, collapsing, etc. The clock would be ticking away on the wall, nearing the midnight mark of the day, which would only panic him even more, and as he goes to pick up his car keys from the bowl on the hallway table, the door would click open and the missus would appear in the doorway. Hair tousled and tugged upon from stress and frustration, soaked from the rain that fell outside, her eyes hooded and a yawn leaving her lips.
“Where the HELL were you?” Harry would bark, dropping his car keys to the bowl and making the missus jump in her place as she closed the door, “I’ve been worried sick! Christ, I thought something happened to you!”
She’d frown towards him as he’d stare at her with an intense and worried stare, shrugging off her coat and toeing off her wet boots, “I got held up at work and my phone died so I couldn’t call you.”
“You could have used another phone. Christ, I’ve been going crazy. I thought something bad had happened,” he’d sigh, and pull her close to his body, his lips pressing to her wet hair as he spoke, “don’t ever do that to me again, Gorgeous. Start taking your charger to work, just in case. I’ve been going crazy thinking you were hurt or something.”
“I’m all good, I promise. I did cut my thumb on some paper,” she’d giggle, and nudge her face into his sweatshirt, “remember that big fashion magazine edition we’ve been working on? The one where I took all the photos and such? We put all of it together tonight so it’s going to get released sometime in the next month.”
“That’s incredible, baby.”
“And, I have tomorrow and the rest of the weekend free from work because we basically put extra hours in last night,” she’d grin up at him, “which means lie-ins and morning cuddles and-”
“Morning sex,” he’d smirk and chuckle when she’d swat at his shoulder, “I’m not kidding. I’ve missed morning sex with you. It doesn’t feel right saying goodbye to you at 7 in the morning. I usually get blowies in the morning.”
“You’re disgusting,” she’d frown and nudge her nose into his jaw, “but, I’ll wake you up with a blowie tomorrow. I promise. An apology for being late and worrying you, and, to make it feel right.” xx
We made it through the whole week! I’m so proud of us. So for this day we just went with a bunch of the silly pictures we took, because about 99% of our photos always look like this. We had a lot of fun doing these prompts, though it was a lot more work than we anticipated! The pictures of last week were mostly taken on a Friday before I went to work in under three hours, with some extra stuff taken at Dutch Comic Con the Sunday after that. It left us with some 500 pictures we’ve been fervently sorting through for the last week and editing (and that’s not counting all of the other pictures we took at DCC not for MilaSara week)!
The YOI fandom is so wonderful and we love it a ton, so we’ll definitely keep cosplaying these lovely ice lesbians, as well as other YOI cosplays. (we’re planning on cosplaying YOI at MCM Expo this May and at Animecon in the Hague, hit us up if you’re also going im serious we just want to make friends).
I’ve edited this photo more times than I can count. Tried my photoshop skills out a bit by adding in the background (it’s like….an abandoned factory that looked fitting).
Honestly this is probably one of my favorite photos of my Red Core Rabbit cosplay even though it’s literally just a selfie I took on my iPhone in the middle of my living room.
Also, I’m wearing Rabbit again and doing another photoshoot on the Saturday of Anime Boston!! I’m like…the eternal AB Rabbit cosplayer because this will be my 3rd year in a row wearing her. 2015 was Version 1 Rabbit with the eared headpiece and then last year’s debuted Version 2 Red Core Rabbit.
As some of you may remember I spent two weeks in Cuba in March. Well, I finally managed it to edit some of the pictures I took there and decided to share a few with you because right now it’s snowing again and I really miss those warm and sunny days…
Just a shitty phone picture and IG edit but this guy joined the family this weekend. Took him out for the first time today and boy does he have energy and an attitude. Can’t wait to work with him a bit and really show off his shine.
Life’s been strange so I had to take a break from the photo challenge. Plan to take it up again though.
