Yuri!!! On Ice – Episode 12 (END)

Eupho snagged a bronze, while Yuzuru Hanyu — oh, I mean Yuri, sorry — earned himself a silver. Despite betraying my expectations that both of them will end at the top of the podium, I somehow found myself more satisfied with how it turned out, regardless. I guess having such a finale was at first […]

Yuri!!! On Ice – Episode 11

STOOOOOOOOOP!!!! If there’s one thing I realized from this episode, it’s that I’m a bigger JJ fan that I thought I imagined. It isn’t exactly out of the realms of possibility that JJ will choke in his performance — and, well, it’s probably the most natural outcome that we could’ve predicted — but still, seeing […]

Yuri!!! On Ice – Episode 10

And that, my friends, is how I met your… uh, mother? I just love this episode. And as of this writing, I honestly don’t know what to elaborate and why, granted that episode 10 is one of the most fun and entertaining episode I’ve seen this season, if not, all year round. Now, I guess I’d […]

Yuri!!! On Ice – Episode 9

It’s happening, bois.

Yuri!!! On Ice – Episode 8

Hey, hey! I think I’m now getting the hang of figure-skating, folks! Let’s talk about figure-skating for a bit. Just to give you a recap, I’ve always whined at how I can’t seem to ‘feel’ the show simply because the sport of figure-skating is as alien to me as ketchup on rice. Guess what? After […]

Yuri!!! On Ice – Episode 7

Wha–? Did I miss something? Tell me Yuri and Viktor kissed. TELL ME. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting myself to commit to this show with such giddy enthusiasm. I was almost willing to drop Yuri!!! On Ice weeks ago but I’m sooo glad I gave it another chance. Budding gay relationship, BL, yaoi, whatever you call this, […]

Yuri!!! On Ice – Episode 6

Right when I was wondering how long until Yuri!!! On Ice takes advantage of CGI, episode 6 comes along with a pretty entertaining episode. You’ve got to hand it to Yuri!!! On Ice. Following the wave of dissatisfaction I had all due to its recycled animation weeks ago, I can’t help but admire its production staff for […]

Yuri!!! On Ice – Episode 5

That’s certainly a lot better, Yuri!!! On Ice. Thank you. Following the disappointing drought I had for the last couple of episodes, Yuri!!! On Ice makes a satisfying return in its 5th episode. While the jarring recycled cuts are still plaguing the show, it didn’t really bother me that much this episode compared to the past […]

Yuri!!! On Ice – Episode 4

To be honest, I’ve been quite disappointed with Yuri!!! on Ice over this past couple of episodes which is somewhat of a letdown given the positive opinion I had for its premier. To start off — and I did mention this a little last week — its redundant usage of the same cuts over and over again for its ice-skating […]

Yuri!!! On Ice – Episode 2

First of all, just a heads up to you, folks, recently I’ve been busy with my work and will continue to be so until who knows when. I’m deliberating whether or not to continue the episodic format for my posts. Honestly, episodic is probably… one of the most difficult way to blog about anime in comparison to series […]
