Figure skating, by far, is one of the most difficult genres of sports. The game is, unarguably, fierce, passionate, aggressive, and yet, so intense and full of grace somehow. It is said that beauty is competitive, so is the game of figure skating. It is a magnificent sport and yet, so cutthroat. Here’s what we know about Yuri on Ice.

Sport is a pious form of representation of artistic features of a person but so is the story of Yuri on Ice. One can learn about the ardent form of penchant and worship towards sports from this anime and the devotion towards the love of all kinds. The same is the chemistry between Yuri K. and Victor, and their proclivity to figure skating.

Is Yuri on Ice on Netflix?

Of course it does! Netflix adds on anything that broadens the quotient of “Netflix and chill.” Bringing in a plethora of shows, movies, and all other kinds of entertainment to the people to choose from and leaving them on common ground, Japan’s 2017’s most viewed anime does not go off the list. Netflix streams it and subtly only adds to the popularity of the show thereof.

The platform streams it, albeit, only in certain areas where it has licensed permission from the original owners to roll it. For all countries, before Netflix can offer Yuri on Ice, it needs to buy the streaming license from the rightful content owners of the anime beforehand. Netflix buys the streaming licenses for each region separately based on some criteria like the target audience’s needs and the competition Netflix has with other streaming services over streaming ‘Yuri on Ice’.

The platform service only plays the series, mostly because it has the rights, in Japan.

Will there be a next season?

It has been four years since the first streaming of the first season of the anime but there has not been a single official word by the production houses for an upcoming season. However, rumors are that there might be the next season with the expectation to air in 2022 or 2023.

What is the anime all about?

Yuri Katsuki, a 23 – year – old Japanese figure skater decides to put a hold on his career after having second thoughts on his abilities and being all cynical about them. Upon returning to his hometown in Kyushu, he goes to meet with his friend Yuko. There he mimics the tactics of his idol Victor Nikiforov, a Russian figure skating champion. His mimicry was videotaped secretly and released on the internet. Victor comes to somehow see the clip and sets off to Kyushu intending to coach Yuri K. to return his career on track.

Poor Victor, by then, had forgotten about the promise he had made to Yuri Plisetsky, a merely 15 – year old figure skating prodigy willing to compete in the Grand Prix series. The promise was to coach the little guy and teach him a specific routine had he won the junior championships. Yuri P. presumably even did. But Victor had this thought slipped out of his mind. Had he remembered any bit of it, he would not have offered to coach Yuri K. too.

To decide and reach a conclusion as to whom to coach for the Grand Prix, Victor decides for the two of them to compete against each other. Both are given to perform to a song following the same melody, withholding different meanings. Yuri P. is assigned a song about unconditional love, named: ‘Agape’, whilst, Yuri K. was assigned a song of a sexual kind of love, named: ‘Eros’.

As a result, Yuri K.’s account wins and Victor becomes his coach. Yuri P. returns to Russia and the two of them start to practice for the Grand Prix.
