The Main Yuri!!! On Ice Ships: A Summary
  • Viktor/Yuuri: LOVE!!!1!!!!!!1!!11!
  • Otabek/Yuri: We're the no. 1 ship you can't beat us
  • Leo/Guang: We will destroy you
  • Phichit/Seung-Gil: ...
  • Phichit/Seung-Gil: We've never met...
  • Phichit/Seung-Gil: But your point is irrelevant because our ship name is adorable

So maybe it’s just a stretch but Blue Diamond’s character design seems somewhat inspired by Leiji Matsumoto’s tragically beautiful woman archetype (AKA: the only women he ever draws lol)

There seem to be too many aesthetic choices for it to be a coincidence like the elongated faces, the downturned eyes and eyelash placement, the hair part and face curls, and the way her cloak frames her face and was drawn as an amorphous void are all super Matsumoto-esque!

The relationship between the two diamonds is also kind of similar to the sister relationship of Emeraldas and Maetel. They both lost someone they cared for but while Emeraldas (yellow diamond) acted strong and moved on, Maetel (blue diamond) held on, grieving, sometimes returning home even though it caused her more sadness. This might be stretching it a little bit but this wouldn’t be the first anime reference in the season by far.


“Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best, and then there are those remarkably rare, addictive ones who just bring out the most. Of everything. They make you feel so alive that you’d follow them straight into hell, just to keep getting your fix.”

Thank you for being the best friends somebody could ever ask for.

I love you. I will love you forever and always. Happy Valentine’s day.
