Is Yuri Plisetsky a Recreation of Gilbert Cocteau?
Yuri Plisetsky is a 15-year-old Russian ice skater from the new loved anime series “Yuri!!! On Ice.” In the anime, this young man has already become a very famous skater internationally and has won the Junior Division of the Grand Prix Final. Throughout the show, he strives to be the best.
Yurio, a nickname he receives in episode 2, isn’t afraid to go out of his comfort zone to show that he can do anything. He proves this point by preforming Victor’s, a 6 time winner of the Grand Prix Final, “On Love: Agape,” a routine he would never pick for himself, because it doesn’t “suit him.” More so his personality.
When performing “On Love: Agape,” he looks very similar to another character from an old shoujo manga called “Kaze to Ki no Uta,” (The Poem of the Wind and Trees) by Keiko Takemiya. His name is Gilbert Cocteau.
Gilbert is also a 15 year-old boy but was born in France in the late 19th century. His backstory is very complex and heart breaking, but his movements are similar to that of Yurio’s in his performance. Also the feathers on Yurio’s costume are like the wings that Gilbert is often portrayed with in his desire to be free from his constant despair.
Because both these boys are young and have feminine like features, many people have called them beautiful, and they often catch the attention of those around them.
Though their appearance and age are the only real connection they have to each other, they both also have a gentle presence when displaying “agape.” In my own opinion, I would not be surprised if Gilbert’s character design was used to help bring forth this new young boy who once wanted to destroy is feminine appearance with his pride but now seeks to embrace it before it’s too late.

Ever since I saw her, I fell in love with her design and I wanted more of her :D
NOW WE’RE GOING ALL ECLIPSA PUZZLE HUNTING (like finding her frozen on Rhombulus place) I CAN’T WAIT FOR MORE! She’s dark, mysterious and very unfinished and that’s what makes her very interesting as the watchers wanting to know more of her background and why so many fear her…
(I’m making some fanart of my favorite SVSTFOE characters and why I like them, if you have a favorite character please let me know and why is it your favorite?)

God bless you :3
@petimetrek was talking Enterprise/Millennium Falcon and since all i want to draw anyway is more Ballerina Enterprise i had to. why perpetuate the most pointless rivalry in scifi history when instead you can have flirting anthropomorphic spaceships?
the falcon brags that she can do the kessel run in under 12 parsecs. the enterprise calls the falcon a scruffy garbage scow. common ground is discovered in their exasperated affection for their crews. ♥ TRUUUU LOOOVE♥
