In YOI episode 3 when Yurio is about to start his program and Yuuko is freaking out over his costume, why is Victor shown as if he's in deep thought? Or just why was the clip shown in the first place? I feel like they wouldn't have put it there just because, but I cant figure out what it's significants is..Do you know why?
I love episode 3.
It’s one of my favorites. There are so many interesting character moments to analyze, and this is one of them.
There are several potential interpretations you could apply to this scene.
Yuri is scowling as he’s warming up to perform “Agape” - which is not Agape-like behavior. Victor could be thinking “Well, I guess he hasn’t tapped into the concept of Agape after all…”
If you notice earlier in the episode, we see Victor looking at Yuri much the same way - particularly right before he sends him off to the waterfall. Victor is not seeing what he wants in Yuri’s demeanor.
You could also speculate that Victor might see a younger version of himself in Yuri, who is standing there in Victor’s costume from his junior years.
But here’s another theory…
