The TV anime Yuri on Ice has produced 1st episode on October 6. As expected, this is highly demanded by fans to make another season for this fantastic TV anime.
We are obliged to tell you about the total sales of its manga version. It was released on September 28, 2016, and sold over 3 million until November 30, 2016 which is the data just one month since it was released! This sale amount already exceeded its prequel’s first-week sale (2.5 million)! Although it’s still too early, oracle predicts that this manga will be a best seller in 2017!
It was written by Mitsurou Kubo, who won the grand prize of newcomer writer of Manga Story writing contest 2012 run by Kodansha.
Grand Prix Final:
We know you’ve all been wondering what Yuri and Victor are doing now that the Grand Prix Final is over, how Yuri’s career will unfold, where he’ll go skating next, who else he might meet on the rink if Viktor would recover from his injury if Phichit will also join the professional league. Now you’ll find out! We have some details about the second season of ‘Yuri On Ice.’
Yuri on ice season 2 has ten episodes:
The new season will be ten episodes, which is one more than the previous one. It will take off where our last episode left us in December 2016, but it won’t be a direct continuation of the previous storyline. We’ll have to wait until the end of April when all episodes are aired to know what happens next.
There were some speculations that Yuri would leave Viktor, his coach, and his boyfriend for someone else or break up with him because they are not skating professionally anymore once their contracts expire at the end of June 2017.
Well, sorry guys, but you’re wrong! GM IceDAC confirmed this information on Instagram, saying ‘our boys’ had already spoken about it, and they don’t plan on breaking up at least for the next two years. “So, there are rumors that our boys have spoken about it already, and they won’t break up for the next two years.
We also wanted to know if Viktor’s injury would affect their performance in the new season, but IceDAC said he would be fine by then (later posts can be found here ). However, it might not mean anything because Victor is still recovering from his back surgery, and his movement is limited. You’ll see him sitting or lying down in some episodes, later reports say that this was done on purpose because future episodes will show how he manages to get better and learn to stand on skates again.
Viktor will be fine by next season! He’s still recovering from back surgery and won’t move that much, but there’s a reason for this you’ll find out later!”
New characters in yuri on ice season 2:
We’ve learned another exciting piece of information that Yurio would meet some new characters in the second season. One of them is Yuri Plisetsky Jr, who might seem familiar because he is voiced by the same actor (Mamoru Miyano) as the one who did Yurio in the anime — and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. They are both professional skaters who appear later in the series.
Yurio meets Yuri P Jr and Pyotr Tchaikovsky in S2! They are voiced by the same actor Mamoru Miyano.”
Real-life singer in season 2:
There is also a real-life singer named Liszt Kiriki whom Victor would meet. Still, it’s uncertain whether he would become his skating partner or not because their relationship will be different compared to ‘Yuri On Ice.’ Maybe they’ll do some collaborations together since Kiriki is not only world-famous but also really handsome.
Yuri on ice season 2 finale:
The season finale would be on episode 10, entitled ‘Yuri On Ice.’ It would consist of Victor and Yuri touring the world together to perform, for example, at World Figure Skating Championships in Helsinki. But it wouldn’t end there because fans are hoping the show will get another season soon.
New character P Kirika! The finale would be called “Yuri On Ice,” where our boy’s tour around the world together performing. But there are rumors that it won’t end there! Season 3 is highly expected!!”
Yuri on Ice Season 1 Overview:
After Episode 12, what does the future hold for Yuri on Ice? Yuri!!! On Ice has wrapped up its first season with an ending that was much talked about. It left fans wanting more, and so much more is exactly what they’ll be getting! So here are some points to ponder before jumping into Season 2.
1. Ice Adonis
For the people not in the know, Ice Adonis is a notable figure skating contest that was barely talked about during the first season of Yuri on Ice, but it will indeed be mentioned in Season 2. And because it’s so essential to the story, could this mean Yurio or Victor will have to separate?
2. Where is Victor going?
After the Grand Prix Final, it’s been a pretty hot topic to question where Victor is going after receiving his 2nd consecutive gold medal at an event in which he was not even expected to make it past the short program. The only thing we know for sure is that they both plan on leaving Japan and returning to Russia.
3. Yurio’s Future
In comparison, Yurio’s future has been vaguely discussed throughout the series as he pursues his skating career after being defeated by Yuri at the Four Continents. But what exactly could this mean? Will we learn more about him in Season 2, perhaps live-chasing after Yurio? Or will we see him compete in a different Grand Prix series?
