Oh gosh, if I could have known that this anime, Yuri on Ice, is going to be this good, I would have watched it the instant it was released. I’ve been on the lookout for some new anime (preferably 2010 and above) after watching some pretty good one early this year and loving almost all of them. I’m not really into sports and the only sports anime that I’ve watched was Slam Dunk until I broke that record early this year. Oh scratch that, I forgot that I watched one last year but it wasn’t as intense as the ones I’ve watched this year especially this anime, Yuri on Ice.

Yuri on Ice released its very first season last October 6, 2016 and continued airing until December 22 the same year. This anime was on my radar last year and since sports anime is starting to grow on me, I decided to give it a try and see what the fuss is all about. And my! This anime took me by surprise. Why? Let the following gifs/images (with some few sentences) do the explaining for me. It’s actually safer because I might drop some major spoilers since I’m still very hyped even after watching it four hours ago, *wink.

12 Reasons Why I’m Obsessed with Yuri on Ice

1. Yuri on Ice is an anime about figure skating. That idea alone is already giving my childhood self a run for her money.

2. Yuri on Ice has an opening theme that is giving me a very good feeling (about the anime) every time I started a new episode.

3. Yuri on Ice has a simple yet very enticing story that a simple-minded person like me can’t resist.

4. Yuri on Ice has a really good (I mean funny, haha) set of characters and a very cute dog. Awww!

5. Yuri on Ice has some very “unforgettable” dialogues, haha.

6. Yuri on Ice has some very good songs that you can really say that each of them we’re composed perfectly for this anime.

7. I love the pairing. I’m still not sure of the true score between Victor and Yuri but whatever it is, I am definitely digging it!

8. Yuri on Ice has very catchy visuals. The animation isn’t that bad too, *wink

9. Yuri on Ice has some comedic scenes that thinking about them now still makes me laugh, haha.

10. Yuri on Ice has a very solid story and each character was given the time to shine. I also love how these international figure skaters interact with each other. 

11. Yuri on Ice collaborated with people from the skating industry and it’s an original anime with no manga counterpart. Isn’t that fresh?!

Yuri on Ice’s ending left me with a smile and was begging for more. I heard there’s a movie coming and hopefully we wouldn’t wait that long for season 2.

That’s only 12 in my list but I know other fans have a lot of things to say about this anime. For now, I want to thank Mitsurou Kubo and Sayo Yamamoto for making Yuri on Ice!
