Yuri!!! on Ice

4 of my students recommended Yuri!!! on Ice. They said it’s hilarious but my fragile heart wasn’t prepared when I binge-watched the first 6 episodes (Season 1 has 12 episodes). Sure it’s cool and funny, but it’s so deep, I was bawling the whole time.

Creatives, athletes, performers, everyone who has their heart into something will love the show. It has the same impact as Honey & Clover did to me.

Yuri!!! on Ice is about Yuri’s figure skating career. He reminded me so much of my boyfriend, I never fully understood introverts until Yuri put it on words…


(Kris, if you’re reading this, I’m sorry. I tried to force my way in.)

One of Yuri’s friends said that he isn’t a genius, that he’s just a hardworking person who spends a lot of time to practice, and privileged enough to have a place where he can hone his craft. I like that part, the show is acknowledging hard work and passion. People always talk about those who were born talented and geniuses, but personally people who are working hard to be as good as those who don’t exert that much are people that needs more acknowledgment.
