shota

One of my favorite things about YOI is that the teenagers are teenagers.
No shota. No “look how cute and sexy and forbidden I am” shit. Yurio dances with technique and wants to be watched by his grandpa, in a very childish and strong feeling of sincere love, his agape. His love is pure as it should be in his age, and I am glad Victor didn’t choose Eros for him even if he asked and felt like he was able and ready to do it. He gave the erotic song to the adult dancer.

Also Minami, which is clearly discovering himself through Victuuri, but in a cute “I want that for my life” way, embarrassed but curious, exactly like a teenager discovering love and a bit of lust. Excitement, joy, happiness, but without forcing unnecessary childish sexiness.

Nothing pedophile. Even the fandom sees Yurio as “the kid”, and this is really healthy and pleasing to see.

This show is perfection.
