Figure Skating anime finally announced: Yuri!!! on Ice


Finally! At long last, after the long slew of major athletic and sports-focused anime that have recently been released, Yuri!!! On Ice (by Mitsurou Kubo) will focus on the art of figure skating. As a fan of figure skating myself, this will be an interesting project to keep an eye on. The first trailer recently started streaming as of this Sunday, and reveals three major cast members:

Kouki Uchiyama as Yuri Prisezki
Junichi Suwabe as Victor Nikifolov
Toshiyuki Toyonaga as Yūri Katsuki

Sayo Yamamoto, who has already directed a figure skating short titled “Endless Night” for the Japan Animator Expo last August, will also be directing this anime series.

In addition, the beautiful music featured in this trailer is composed by Taku Matsushiba and Taro Umebayashi (aka milk) of PIANO Inc., with Keisuke Tominaga as music producer. (The infamous Yoko Kanno is also a featured artist of PIANO Inc.)
