Japanese figure skater Yuri Katsuki faces a crushing defeat during the Grand Prix finals and heads home, unsure of whether or not he wishes to continue his skating career. After a video of Yuri mimicking Russian figure skater Victor Nikiforov's routine goes viral, Victor decided to become Yuri's coach, much to the dismay of his coach, his fans, and his fellow Russian skater Yuri Plisetsky.
This was such a wonderful anime. Showing beautiful and realistic figure skating (all were choreographed by actual figure skaters), a wonderful original soundtrack and also managing to show a realistic queer relationship without it being the main story line makes this one of my absolute favourites. The story focuses on Yuri, a figure skater who has hit a low in his carrier. Whilst sulking back home his figure skating idol, Victor, turns up and offers to become his coach and help him win the Grand Prix Final (where he was previously disgraced). The relationship between Yuri and Victor is wonderfully built up and explained through out the story and you're also introduced to many other memorable characters, each with distinctive traits and styles of skating or influence. The story follows Yuri's progress and interactions with the other skaters ending in the Grand Prix Final. Nail biting to the end and wonderfully written, I thoroughly enjoyed this an would recommend to anyone who likes adorable beautiful stories.
