one more thing about airport scene
Apart from the general awesomeness of this scene, there is one thing that makes it 200% better for me is the fact how different is this reunion from any other we’ve seen in the anime.
So here we have both Victor and Yuuri running desperately to each other when they haven’t seen each other 2-3 days and all they can think of is how much they need to hug and it almost ends with engagement that’s how desperate they are so yes.
But then let’s compare this with reunions we see in the first episode. You know that time when Yuuri came back home after like… five years?
Hiroko is obviously very excited but there’s no kissing, no hugging, nothing. I always wondered how much of Yuuri’s reluctance to touch comes from his childhood because Katsuki family seems to show their love in completely other ways.
And it’s not a bad thing, of course, everybody’s happy that Yuuri’s home it’s just completely different from the airport reunion scene. Also, one more thing about that - here Yuuri comes back as a loser. It’s only he with his anxiety to think so but he feels that he disappointed his hometown as a skater and his parents as a son for not coming back so long and it adds to his sense of unease.
We don’t know too much about Victor (because we know nothing about his family
why) but when he meets the person he is the closest to before Yuuri, Yakov, after about 7-8 months, he acts as they haven’t seen each other couple of hours and is obviously ignoring the fact that Yakov is still angry with him (he gets drunk shortly after but that’s another story).
Anyway, it’s nothing like the airport reunion. And I love it because it means that at this stage of their relationship they are already closer to each other than they were ever to anyone. Even the fact that Yuuri has done bad at his FS doesn’t make him nervous or guilty because he already knows that Victor will accept him no matter what. And Victor, Victor is a complete mess without Yuuri I mean he hasn’t even combed his hair?
Just look at them so in love with each other they can’t stand a day apart. They not only miss each other, they act like they’d feel incomplete without each other. And that’s even if they should be used to travelling and living alone.
Real soulmates, I’ll give Kubo-sensei that.
