just do it everyday

I wanted to send something but I can't think of anything so uh hi hello how are you

I appreciate the effort anyway, thank you!

I’m not the best, I’ve been on the brink of tears all day. It’s a incredibly strange feeling when you pack up all the possessions you own and just look at them. Like, my whole life is just packed away into a couple of bags, and I’m moving it to a whole new location.

I’m in my new house right now, all alone. In my family’s house, there are six other people living there, so it’s not quite, but in this house everything is silent except me. It’s weird. 

Even though it’s my home now, I still can’t picture myself living here. Walking up and down the stairs every day, doing laundry, taking a shower. All the mundane things that I do everyday, I just can’t picture doing those things here.

I’m sure I’ll settle in eventually, and when I get a roommate things won’t be as quiet, but for now everything is new and foreign.

I think we can all agree that Yuuri’s speech was a central scene this episode, and although I’ve seen a lot of people giving great explanations about Yuuri’s use of 「愛」 in his speech and the difference between 「愛」(ai) and 「恋」(koi) there aren’t many people who go further into his speech than that.


Firstly I’ll just briefly gloss over 「愛」 and 「恋」because what they each connotate in the Japanese language is important to the Yuri!!! on Ice plot

「恋」is kind of like a physical love. It describes one’s longing for someone, but lacks a deeper emotional bond. Used for boyfriend/girlfriend/partner.

「愛」 is a deep love, it encompasses 恋 but also describes emotional love. While it does mean you long for someone, it kind of implies that you’re willing to do, give, or change something to be with them. Used for family/spouse.

***note: on the contrary, while「恋」does imply a physical romance/love, 「恋人」refers to you’re true love, you’d call your fiancé or spouse that, and「愛人」implies someone you’ve had an affair with. So when Victor uses the word 「恋人」…. ;)))


So when Yuuri says
「僕の愛、それは分かり易い愛や恋ではなくて、ヴィクトルとの絆や、家族や、地元に対する微妙な気持ち」
He’s saying his「愛」is not just the physical and emotional love he has for others, his love is literally his relationship with Victor, it is literally his family, and that it is the complicated/abstract feelings he has for others around him (aka Yuuko, Minako, Nishigori). It is a tangible THING such as actions and words as implied by Yuuri’s use of 「物」 instead of 「事」which would describe an idea or a concept.

Another interesting thing to note is when Yuuri says he has “no name for this emotion”
「その感情に名前はない」
At first I thought Yuuri might have been downplaying his emotions but then I realised it wasn’t that, it was that Yuuri really just doesn’t know exactly what 「愛」is just yet despite describing it briefly before because he’s still exploring what it truly means for him.
Before Victor, we all know Yuuri had a big crush on Yuuko, hell, he was going to confess in the first episode. But that’s all it was, a crush, which would take neither 「愛」nor「恋」, but 「好き」(suki).

Now I’m sure you know the difference between 「愛する」and「好きです」but just in case
「好きです」refers to a wide range of types of “like”. You use it for objects, hobbies, and topics, or people-wise, friends and crushes.


Through Yuuri’s speech, we are witnessing his growth and exploration of what 「愛」is, what it means to him, and who the word applies to. Most prominent are his developing feelings of 「愛」towards Victor. The phrase
「繋ぎ止める」
Does mean “to hold on to”, but it also means “to fasten” or “to tie”, and this implies that while Yuuri does not want to let go of Victor, neither does he want Victor to let go of him. Yuuri wants to create a mutual bond with Victor, and he has decided to call this bond 「愛」.


As a side note, here’s further meta on Yuuri and Victor’s developing relationship, shown through the episode preview. It’s very short but 
I do think it’s a cute example of them becoming closer to each other.

Hanzo had told Jesse there were somethings he wanted to when he was young boy, but couldn’t get to do them cause of his family’s business. 

Jesse: “What kind of things did ya wanted to do?

Hanzo: “Just simple normal things an everyday boy would do. Like going to extra fancy cafes to extort protection money, or small bakeries to get rid of traitors by pouring a special kind of powder into their bread mix.”

Jesse: “Really? You never got do any of that? But that’s what every boy does at that age!

Soldier 76: “ON WHAT PLANET DO KIDS DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT?!” He shouts when he overheard their conversation.
