totally anime

Okay, so as I’m sure you’ve already heard, Stéphane Lambiel will appear in episode 12 of Yuri on Ice as himself (he’ll be voicing the animated version of himself, how cool is that?)

And just in case you weren’t sure Stéphane Lambiel is sort of a big deal in the figure skating world.

Of course, he’s not Plushenko or Johnny Weir but he was an amazing skater in his time too, which resulted in his becoming the two-time (2005–2006) World Champion, the 2006 Olympic silver medalist, a two-time (2005, 2007) Grand Prix Champion and a nine-time (2001–08, 2010) Swiss national champion.

Not to mention that he’s just a beautiful, beautiful man with equally beautiful performances.

Watch his program to “Don’t Stop The Music” from 2011 and you’ll understand what I mean. (Skating in a suit? Yes, please.)

But wait there’s more!

He retired a few years ago and now works as a coach and a choreographer - this season for Deniss Vasiļjevs.

How is this relevant to the YOI fandom?

You may recall this tweet/picture:

Yep, that’s them.

Not to mention that people (including the staff of the anime) have been saying that they’re the closest to the real life versions of Victor and Yuuri you could find, not on the romantic level, but more in the sense of physical closeness and working together well.

I mean

They have a point.

And shall we talk about their selfies? Both of their twitter accounts are full of their selfies from all sorts of events and trips. (Stephane’s is here, Deniss’s is here).

And that’s just one of them.

Okay, so where am I going with this?

To this last photo, from the recording studio where Stéphane was doing his lines for his character in the anime:

See that blond haired boy in the lower right corner?

Stéphane took Deniss along for the recording session, and I just find it incredibly sweet.

Queen Yuri Plisetsky aka Yurio aka Yura 😘👑
//may your hair keep growing longer and longer because Beka and I like that a lot 🙏💙//

i spent 4578 yen to celebrate valentine’s day reading nothing but manga…

My Mom (one of the few people irl I’m out to, also an amateur flamenco dancer, former figure skater, a gymnast and a coach) heard “On Love: Eros” when she visited my place, and she was like, “Wow, what a fantastic piece, I’m going to dance to this music at the New Year’s celebration”.

Me: “Oh! Okay, and you probably should know that this music is from the anime about figure skating. And there’s a gay couple in it.”

Mom: “Oh dear… Do they skate as a pair to this music?”

Me: “THAT’S ACTUALLY A GREAT IDEA BUT–”

Mom: “Do they make out while skating as a pair to this music?”

Me: “ASDFGHJK”
