anyway...so hyped up, until i decided to throw in mine!
yes, ok ok ok ok ... "Yuuri!!! On Ice" wat? i like it! just that there are so many "hidden stuffs" unknown to me if not for the fans' explanations - really thank them! it's not your average BL anime, thing is i'm used to Junjou Romantica, Loveless - all these anime are pretty much direct. i've never gotten so much headaches until Yuuri On Ice - i seriously MUST HAVE the explanations or i'm COMPLETELY LOST.
They've gotten the right voice actors. i was laughing so much with the WOW! AMAZING! and all the English, Russian, Japanese exchanges with Victor and Kastsudon - er - Yuuri! Fangirls all over swoon with this Victor. Wait..did i tell u i'm a 2d fan? heh. Besides that..i have never seen an anime that doesn't tell u straightaway that this is a BL anime - HOLD ON. IT'S NOT JUST A BL ANIME. Thing is ALMOST EVERYTHING seamlessly blends in, without you knowing it - it just seems so - NATURAL. Well, ALMOST..bcos there are other pairings which hint so much for canon pairings - like - CANON PAIR ALREADY!!! Goodness, all the fans are SCREAMING, "CAN YOU HEAR - OUR HEARTBEATS?!!!"
so ya, Yuuri On Ice is a history-maker. As if, from the start, it was meant to be. The song has captured fans' hearts, the ice-skate choreography is REALLY choreographed. The movements - i've never seen an ice-skating anime before, let alone such seamless frameworks that..this is what ice-skating is in anime. It is so worldwide that they even got famous sportsmen as the characters themselves, in different languages. WIN. Absolute.
i just hope Kubo Sensei won't stress herself out to over-fatigue. See, there's always this pressure to give "2nd season better than the 1st". What's even more, this anime is FAMOUS WORLDWIDE...well, if i am not mistaken - check out raving reviews, fanart, fandoms pairings, fans' combing the pictures of the anime, explanations, comments and some ACTUALLY FLY THERE TO TAKE PHOTOGRAPH OF THE PLACES - W <3 and="" etc.="" even="" gape="" needless="" of="" p="" ros="" say="" skating="" some="" themselves="" to="" tried="" upload="" videos="" w="">
so yeah, WORLDWIDE PRESSURE. Not to mention it won awards. And Victor is No.1 anime boy!
i guess every fan goes, "How i wish my relationship would be as lovable as Victuuri." Anime makes me cry, i kid you not. And for once in my life - DOGS TAKE CENTRESTAGE!!! Don't get me wrong, i like anime-cats too, but..it DOES GET TIRED. SO YES!!! HISTORY MAKER!!!
by the way...this anime ended way few months ago. Yet, it has a HUGE LOYAL WORLDWIDE FANBASE of fans who still feel it's NEVER ENOUGH.
sad if it only ends one season. However, on the other hand, not surprisingly if it really happens, The hype is extremely strong, so much success, the pressure - how can one handle? how does one innovate? It is a very dear anime. Some anime last one season just for that lingering effect. Perhaps it should have ended that way to let Victor and Yuuri continue their relationship behind closed doors (again: i'm a 2D fan n i speak of the characters as if they are in real life - oh c'mon, cut me some slack already)
BUT CONFIRMED 2ND SEASON - i tell you WE JUMPED IN WILD EXCITEMENT. i assume it's still in the works as no news of its release date, we could wait..not surprising if it's next year..HOLD IT
it's a GREAT anime, you say, and you say the ending is rushed, so, to give stakeholders, sponsors, etc,. that commercial monetary (hey, let's be realistic about this shall we) success-effect TAKES TIME. What, don't they need to pay every single person involved? Hey, it's A JOB, mind you. While fans oogle, drool, fantasise (i'll not continue) about Victuuri, OtaYuuri, etc. .. who does all the behind-the-anime-stuffs? they don't do it for free. Not to mention they asked famous sportsmen to join in the fun in voicing the characters in the anime - don't you think they should be paid in return too? They're pros, no matter what.
By the way, the whole crew is limited to a budget. Go over it, you'll have to wreck your brains to convince to justify - and how much more to practically beg for. Welcome to the real world. It really sucks but people will say, "Hey, money makes the world go round."
as much as i grit my teeth in frustration about the money part..all i hope is that everything runs smooth for the 2nd season. So let's cheer the Yuuri!!! On Ice people OK?! がんばー！3>
