★Anime Goods, Gundam, and Game Centers! Saori, Aoi and Mafuyu went to Akihabara to hang ou... I mean.. seach! For more details? Check here from this portal article!
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “So today... you guys remember? It’s such a special day for that anime, which we never miss watching every week and will also have the final episode, right?”
Mafuyu(^q^) “Is it MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM IRON-BLOODED ORPHANS?”
Aoi( ´_ゝ`) “Nope. ORPHANS will continue to air in 2017 too, so...not the final episode yet. It’s a MUST CHECK ANIME IN 2017 AS WELL.”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “The answer is... you know it, right? It’s Yuri!!! on Ice！“
※These four haven’t watched the episode 10 as of today (when they’re writing this article).
Boss( 'ω') “Sigh... it’s gonna be over soon... Even though I really want Yuuri to win the grand prix final but I don’t want it to be the final episode yet...”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “That’s how all of us think too! So! Before the final episode, let’s review some best scenes up until episode 9 of Yuri on Ice!!!, which four of us will announce! This project is called...”
Let’s Review Yuri up until episode 9! The Four Best Scenes In Yuri!!! on Ice, which Otaku Republic members picked!
Aoi( ´_ゝ`)’s Pick! 【Yurio Standing Under a Waterfall / Episode 3 】
“Oh well, it’s a waterfall.”
Yuuri and Yurio, who could not find the answer to the question, “What’s the Eros to me?”, was ordered to do an ascetic practice by sitting under a waterfall in the premise of the temple by Victor.
Complaining, they kept standing under a waterfall obediently. Then Yurio started thinking about what’s the “unconditional love” to him.
“Yurachika (Юрочка ). You were the best.”
“Jiichan, will you come see my practice tomorrow too? I’ll do better.”
What hit Yurio’s mind then was his grandfather who has been watching him right beside him since little.
Yes, his kind grandfather’s existence itself is Yurio’s “unconditional love”.
“Are you alright? Let’s get out of here.”
Aoi( ´_ゝ`) “Look at this face. This... this face, which we can never express to the words... is my... I mean, Yurio’s best scene...!!!”
Boss( 'ω') “Your love toward Yurio is just incredible, it seems like...”
Aoi( ´_ゝ`) “Kidding me? My love for Yurio is always deeply straight. Actually, I was gonna pick this scene, though...”
“Yes, dance beautifully.”
“He’s overwhelmingly beautiful. They cannot be strong skaters if they are not beautiful.”
After Yurio went back to Russia, he started training so hard that he could never have before. He overcame such a strict training never to lose anymore. And here he comes. He showed up in front of Yuuri at the competition in Russia.
Aoi( ´_ゝ`) “Beautiful...”
Boss( 'ω') “Sure He was super beautiful. Not cute but beautiful...”
Aoi( ´_ゝ`) “The Grand Prix Final is just around the corner. I’ll definitely cheer up Yurio. I’ll never ever miss Yurino until the last episode!”
Mafuyu(^q^)’s Pick! 【Yurio Being So Kind That He Gave Away Piroshki / Episode 9 】
“Go ahead and retire if you don’t have any talent, idiot!!”
(Mafuyu) thought (Yurio) was a character who had such a sharp tongue. Yurio was impudent and competitive even though he was younger. I didn’t hate him but it didn’t mean that I liked him so much.
“It’s yours. Your birthday is coming up soon, huh?”
But the episode 9 was when I came to like such Yurio. Yurio threw the paper bag at Yuuri, who was going to go home after the competition.
Inside was “Piroshki with Katsu-don inside”, which Yurio’s grandfather made him.
“It’s... Katsu-don, isn’t it?” “Yep!”
“My grandpa’s home-made. Isn’t it good?”
Mafuyu(^q^) “This smile made me come to like Yuriko...! Even though he always behaves in such a cold manner, that moment was when he showed us his natural face, looking his actual age. My heart skipped a beat!”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Yeah. I thought that so many people became Yurio’s fans in this moment. So, are you rooting for Yurio at the Grand Prix Final too?”
Mafuyu(^q^) “Oh, since I became a fan of Phichit-Kun right after I first saw him, I’ll root for him!!”
Boss( 'ω') “What’s your pick for...”
Mafuyu(^q^) “That’s that! And this is this, you know?! Alright then, what’s your best part, Boss?”
Boss( 'ω')’s Pick! 【Everybody Eating Katsu-don / Here & There 】
For Yuri!!! on Ice,
Katsu-don is 【Yuuri’s favorite food and a special food which he cannot eat unless he wins the competition】.
Boss( 'ω') “Look at everybody’s faces when they are eating Katsu-don! They all look happy, don’t they? That makes me wanna eat Katsu-don.”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Oh, we actually went out to eat Katsu-don, huh?”
Boss( 'ω') “We have an image that most restaurants in Japan have Katsu-don, no? Delicious, great amount and a little cheaper than other dishes... I love it! I used to like it but after I watched Yuri!!! on Ice, I’ve even come to like it more!”
Boss( 'ω') “Alright, you’re the last... what’s your best part, Saori?”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Me? Let’s see...”
Saori(゜∇ ゜)’s Pick! 【The Moment When One Person Became Two People / Episode 9 】
(I’ll all by myself skating from now on. What do I need for that...)
Yuuri was beaten hollow at the Grand Prix Final last year and cancelled the contract with his coach.
He was looking over his hometown, thinking...
Then he decided to keep skating even all by himself.
“Yuuri, I’ll be your coach from today.”
“You see, I’ll make you win at the Grand Prix Final.”
One day, Victor appeared.
Even though Viktor kept his own pace, being wild and free, he kept supporting, comforting and scolding Yuuri.
“Yuuri isn’t weak. Everybody’s just thinking like that way too.”
(I’m the one who love this program, which I created with Viktor, the most.)
Since Viktor became his coach, they had never been apart. But Viktor went back to his country in the middle of the Russian Cometition.”
Yuuri thought about so many things such as his peak as a skater or the last opportunity... What can I do as a skater? What can Viktor do? After Yuuri went back to his country, he couldn’t wait to run to Viktor, who was waiting for Yuuri at the airport, and hold him.
“Take care of me until I retire.”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “I watched the episode 1 again the other day... then I got moved even more and even naturally, watching this episode 9. Even though Yuuri thought that he had been fighting all by himself but everybody (his family, buddies) was right beside him, watching him. Viktor was the one who made him realize it. Then they finally decided to be together until the end. These two are the best part for me.”
“Go get the gold medal together at GPF...”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “What’s more? Makkachin, saying “I’ll be with you guys too!” was incredibly adorable too.”
Boss( 'ω') “Oh, come on. You like Makkachin after all... But I realized one thing after four of us picked our best parts.”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “??? What is it?”
Boss( 'ω') “Everything we picked were in episode 9.”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Ahhh... True... Yurio’s Beauty and Smile, Piroshki with Katsu-don and Makkachin...”
Aoi( ´_ゝ`) “But I bet episode 10, 11 and 12 will be even more exciting getting closer to the final episode...”
Mafuyu(^q^) “Yeah, we’ll be able to see even better scenes than those in episode 9, huh?!!!”
Saori(゜∇ ゜) “Yeah! We can never miss this one, Yuri!!! on Ice... You guys, let’s watch this anime until the last episode together, okay? Watching Katsu-don!!”
Boss( 'ω') “Alright everybody! Look for our next article!”
We’ll see you guys soooon!!
