First of all, I just want to say a huge thank you to Kubo-sensei and the whole team of Yuri on Ice. For me, this show has been a sort of saving grace because it just always managed to brighten up my day with its incredible storyline and wonderful characters. It has been such a long time since I’ve found an anime, in fact, ANYTHING that has captured my interest like this and Yuri on Ice had done that within the first episode. I had never even thought about watching the show but seeing all over Tumblr, I decided to give it a try and I’m so freaking glad that I took the chance.
This anime tells a beautiful story about a man who had lost all hope within himself and didn’t believe that he could achieve or soar high. But someone comes into his life and proves him wrong, showing him that he can soar higher than ever and he can reach his goals with the right support and people around you. It’s a journey that we go on and we fall in love with every single character, with their flaws and quirks. It’s also a love story between two men who find each other and along the way, slowly develop their relationship into something strong and good. It’s a whole combination of glorious things, a story filled with diversity and just so much that it’s just so amazing.
Episode twelve did a whole lot for me and it was an incredible finale. I actually had to work around for a few minutes in my living room because I was so overwhelmed. I was jumping around, fist pumping and restraining my shouts of joy because yes, I was that happy. I still am very happy.
