@ people saying it was queerbait before the kiss: nO?? ?WE WATCHED A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP DEVELOP AT A NORMAL PACE !!! IT WAS NEVER QUEERBAIT, IT WAS THERE THE WHOLE TIME !!! IT WAS CANON WAY BEFORE THE KISS
This show literally did what EVERYONE wants the media to do with an lgbt relationship which is DEPICT IT AS A NATURAL THING. Instead of doing what EVERY show has done when writing a gay relationship which is being like “LOOK AT THE GAY COUPLE BEING GAY THEY ARE G A Y” and defining the relationship according to that, Yuri on Ice didn’t NEED to outright say “These men are in love” because it was so?? obvious?? I just. Please don’t discredit the first half of this show as “queerbaiting” when it was literally just the most beautifully natural and healthy development of a queer relationship we’ve ever witnessed in anime. Viktuuri has always been canon. This kiss just reaffirmed it in a really blunt way.
