I’ve been discussing with a friend about how we’d want Yuuri!!! on Ice’s 2nd season to go (if we ever get one, I’m hoping for it please lawd), and I just had a flurry of ideas that just had me all unnecessarily excited.
Okay, so Yuuri wins the Grand Prix Final, that’s obviously going to be the ending to this (or he finishes 2nd or 3rd, but still on the podium, but yeah he still gets a medal), so the Grand Prix series ends but we all know the figure skating season doesn’t end with just the Grand Prix Final.
Yuuri!!! on Ice Season 2 : Road to the Winter Olympics
Proposed length: 2-cour (25 eps) or more
Proposed airing time: Fall 2017
I actually wanted it to be the road to Worlds, but with the Winter Olympics happening in 2018, it’d be the perfect time for Yuuri!!! on Ice to hype us all up for the winter games!!
Okay, so the story picks up from after Yuuri wins the GPF, and hello, Viktor isn’t complacent because the Winter Olympics is coming up (Viktor is riding the momentum and would like Yuuri to reach even father by joining the Olympics) and he feels that Yuuri still needs to up his game.
Since it’s a Road to the Winter Olympics, of course we’re going to have to witness how the selection goes, which means we’ll want to see two competitions in the season:
The Japan Figure Skating Championships (nationals a.k.a selection)
The Winter Olympics (obviously haha)
And some of the things that I really want to happen are:
MORE OF MINAMI KENJIROU
Introduction of one or two other male Japanese skaters (because there are three spots for each discipline, right?)
Viktor getting pressured into going back to Russia (either to skate again or to be someone’s coach) because you know, patriotism, represent your country, Mother Russia is calling, blah blah blah…
But Viktor stays
Yuuri earns a spot in the Olympic team
gathering of all the beautiful skaters
*INSERT NAME OF YOUR OTHER FAVE SKATER/S HERE IN ALL CAPS FOR EMPHASIS*
because he’s decided that despite all the good things that has happened, he thinks it’s time for him to retire
so he does skate like his life depended on it
and shares an emotional moment with Viktor who helped him through it all
and finally Yuuri wins the Worlds and retires on a good note
:’) beautiful, just beautiful
BUT!!! going with the notion that this is all Viktor’s ploy of building up Yuuri to make him a worthy opponent, Viktor goes back to Russia, he tells Yuuri it’s a brief vacation but really trains his beautiful ass off, then publicly calls out Yuuri (to his surprise) for a challenge (in the most flirty way that he could btw), which leads us to:
Yuuri!!! on Ice Season 4: Viktor’s Return
…lol no I’m just kidding. that probably won’t happen, lol
BUT!!!!!!! (hahaha) you know what’s more likely to happen??
precious, precious spin offs, and I’ve got the perfect spin-off material for this series, and they are as follows:
Viktor!!! on Ice – shows us Viktor’s glory days. we’ll see his rise to fame, his beautiful long hair, maybe know why he cut his hair, and just everything Viktor prior to watching that vid of Yuuri. smol Yuuri and Yurio could probably make cameos from time to time (like showing them going “uwaaah” at their idol).
Plisetsky!!! on Ice – it’s a must. I don’t even care if it’s all off-ice but we need a Yurio-centric spin-off. Maybe show the time when he got back to Russia from Japan? And his history with his family!!
