What, another book review already? Yes, because there were actually two new Yuri!!! on Ice books that came out this week! This time, I’m reviewing Yuri!!! on ICE Koushiki Guidebook Yuri!!! on Life (Yuri!!! on ICE Official Guidebook Yuri!!! on Life), published by Fusosha. This book focuses on the figure skating aspect of the show, and there’s some stuff about real skaters as well. So if you’re a fan of the anime and also a skating enthusiast, this one’s for you! (If you’re looking for the other book instead, you can read my review of Yuri!!! on ICE Official Fanbook GO YURI GO!!! in my previous post.)
This book is not available in English or French, but there are plenty of pictures (mostly full color, and there are a few black-and-white sketches as well). The dust jacket is also removable, and the alternate cover art hidden underneath is similar to the image on the jacket, except it’s zoomed out and the three characters are spaced a bit farther apart so you can see their individual poses better. As for skaters other than the three main characters, don’t worry, they’re in this book as well, so you can enjoy their style… JJ Style! And Emil style, and Michele style, and so on:
Keep reading for the rest of the book review, plus a few more pictures!
