He brought back the “Etude” program’s spin styles. Mesmerizing!

Thanks, Yuri on Ice.
  • Before Yuri On Ice: Yeah I mean I guess figure skating is pretty cool but idk much about it
  • After Yuri On Ice: Do you have a minute to talk about our Lord and Savior Yuzuru Hanyu, who won Worlds 2017 and broke his own world record for highest Free Skate score? Do you have another minute to talk about our Queen and fellow anime otaku Evgenia Medvedeva, who also won Worlds 2017 and also broke her own world record for highest Free Skate score? Do you have another minute to talk about our Quad Bae Nathan Chen, who attempted six (6) quads in his Free Skate at Worlds 2017 and is the first person to ever land five (5) successful quads? Do you have an additional hour to talk about Jason Brown, Javier Fernández, Boyang Jin, Patrick Chan, Shoma Uno, Denis Ten, Michael Christian Martinez, Misha Ge, Deniss Vasiljevs, Oda Nobunari, Karen Chen, Mirai Nagasu, Ashley Wagner, Johnny Weir, Maia and Alex Shibutani, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, Joe Johnson, Adam Rippon, Stéphane Lambiel-

these things are always my favorite. from the top left: skating, jumps, spins, steps. yuuri’s strength is pure (清潔な ‘immaculate, clean’) sex appeal and his weakness is mental. victor’s strength is surprise, whereas his weakness is cooperation.

edit: part 2! part 3! translation of the paragraphs above the charts can be found in the notes!

From the fanbook, skater parameters for Yuuri, Victor, and Otabek. 

From the top left going clockwise are Yuuri’s scores in skating, jumps, spins, stepping, PURE SEX APPEAL, and mental.

I am not kidding you, the one going off the chart is ‘pure sex appeal.’  But honestly Yuuri’s at the edge or only about one away from the edge for all of his skills. No wonder Victor was like ‘this dude…’ 

From the top left going clockwise are Victor’s scores in skating, jumps, spins, stepping, surprising, and cooperation for the low one.

I guess Victor isn’t good at cooperating with people (unless it’s Yuuri lol), hence his tension with the RSF? As for his overall skills. Boy… 

From the top going left clockwise are Otabek’s scores in skating, jumps, spins, stepping, MANLINESS, and decisiveness. 

IDK Otabek, looks like you need to be a little manlier. I mean you haven’t gone off the chart yet (but seriously lmaooo). Decisiveness is not surprising to me at all. That seems very much Otabek’s thing.

Everyone else should have charts too, but I’ve yet to find them!
