Hi guys, and welcome to this very special Tag Thursday! Why is this one so special, you may ask?
Well, it’s the first time I actually made my own ORGINAL BOOK TAG! Woop, woop! As you may or may not know, I have recently fallen in love (some may call it obsessed) with a little anime called Yuri!!! On Ice. Now, I never would have guessed I would become addicted to an anime about ice figure skaters, but here I am! I saw this show mentioned on Twitter regularly and got intrigued so I checked out the first few episodes and became hooked.
It’s about Katsuki Yuri, a Japanese figure skater who lost badly in his last Grand Prix. He’s suffering from crippling self-doubt and anxiety and is thinking about retiring until a video of him skating the routine of his idol, Victor Nikiforov, goes viral and none other than Victor himself shows up to coach him. This show is just so beautiful and funny and heartwarming. Yuri is such a relatable main character and the evolution of his relationship with Victor (an actual canon LGBTQIA+ relationship) is a joy to watch. I adored the 12 episodes and am keeping my fingers crossed for a second season!
And in the meantime, why not combine two things I love and do a little Yuri On Ice Book Tag?
Here we go!
