I saw the word yuri and came running, but when I got here it's all guys in tight outfits being emo about ice skating?? Where are the skater girls?

Oh shush, Bee-kun! If you don't like character-driven sports anime with mostly- if not all-male characters, then this probably isn't the yuri for you!

Well, this is the first ice skating anime/figure skating anime I've seen! It's an original too, which means there's sadly no manga... But we finally have a release date! October 2016!

With the dark drama aspect, this is definitely giving off some first-season Free! vibes. Looks like it'll take the sport pretty seriously though, like with Cheer Boys!! and Yowamushi Pedal. All four of these anime have the aspect of overcoming a sense of failure, too!

Synopsis

Yuri Katsuki is a figure skater who, shouldering the expectations of the whole of Japan, experienced crushing defeat at the grand prix finale. With this, he returns to his hometown in Kyushu.

Half wanting to continue skating and half wanting to retire, Yuri has holed himself up in his family’s home. That’s when Victor Nikiforov, the five-time world champion, suddenly approaches him…

Yuri Katsuki, a Japanese skater on the edge. Yuri Plisetsky, a young Russian skater who dominates his senior competitors. These two Yuris, alongside the reigning champion Victor Nikiforov, are about to enter an unparalleled figure-skating grand prix!
