In case you are unfamiliar with the show, the anime follows Yuri – a self-conscious boy with dreams of making it big on the ice. After letting his nerves get the best of him, he missed out on his chance for the gold and fell into a rut. After visiting his friend Yuko and doing his own rendition of a popular routine by his idol Victor Nikiforov, the video of his breathtaking performance spread like wildfire on social media capturing the interest of Victor himself. His adventures to clawing his way to the top with the help of the Russian idol and a few friends along the way, the bond between these characters and the incredible determination made this anime one for the books.
