LONG POST I’M SORRY I NEED TO STOP DOING THIS
(Reads left to right, top to bottom)
This is…. bad. Like, I did not format this well AT ALL and I apologize. For everyone in the dark, on 4/29 there was a seiyuu event for YOI wherein the voice actors acted out this scene (more or less, I took A LOT of creative liberties. I just wanted to get the basic gist.) That said, my entire experience with this whole thing was just based on a heavily condensed series of tweets, so my interpretation may well be WAY off. Also, I hate how choppy it is >> I didn’t write it so you can’t really… blame me (yes you can)
For anyone on whom the joke is completely lost (it was for me too at first), this gold fish ornament called a shachihoko is on top of a castle in Karatsu- a real Japanese town that the fictional town of Hasetsu is heavily based on in YOI. During this scene, everyone is drunk in Hasetsu and Yuuri drunkenly says that Victor isn’t as flexible as Shachihoko on top of Hasetsu Castle. Victor, being drunk himself, only hears “Chihoko” and interprets it as a woman’s name, one he thinks is Yuuri’s ex. Jealousy ensues lmao.
I haven’t decided if I’m gonna ever finish these so ima just post the sketches for now 👀
A couple older pieces I did for Yuri K. centric zines! Tried two different versions of shonen manga style. Looking at it again now, it really doesn’t look like YOI at all does it? Hahahaha
Also, sorry for the inactivity! Life is still being quite a rollercoaster. 2018 has been going by super fast.
My favorite screencap redraws from Yuri on Ice💜
Mappa uploaded the last batch of the key frame previews for the Yoi Select Book, and this time they featured shots from episode 12 and even the illustrations from the ending!
Honestly, they may just be “samples” but they’re blessings all on their own. ❤
(Note I’m not using Yuri on Stage for examples cause that’s cheating)
Yuuri “I did badly at a competition so I’m going to try death by alcohol with side of public pole dancing” Katsuki
Victor “I’m so in love I’m going to kiss my boyfriends skate on international television” Nikiforov
Yuri “My free skate wasn’t perfect so I’m going to craft an edgy skate and try to out gay my dads” Plisetsky
Chris “I cum in my pants at the end of my routines on international television” Giacometti
Phichit “I saw my bestie had matching rings with his boyfriend/coach so I started screaming congratulations on his marriage in public” Chulanont
JJ “I’m so impressed with myself that the music for my short program is literally a song about how great I am” Leroy
Otabek “I wanted to become friends with that guy I met five years ago so I kidnapped him on my awesome motorcycle” Altin
They are all insane and extra. Also it was very hard to pick just ONE extra thing for Victor, Yuuri and Yuri
