Yuuri on ice is a very popular sports anime about figure skating, It debuted in October of 2016 and continued until late December of that year. The show is very controversial because some of the characters in the show have shown some LGBT characteristics. This effects the community because LGBT representation doesn’t happen often in Japanese culture, and it is a step towards acceptance for all, especially in anime/manga.

Viktor Nikiforov is a 28 year old famous skater from Russia.  He has won many gold medals in the grand prix and the Olympics. He is an idol for many young skaters, especially for Yuuri Katsuki. He is a Japanese ice skater who met Viktor at a gala, and their relationship boomed from there. It started off as Viktor just being Yuuri’s coach. But, it didn’t stay that way. In one of the later episodes, Yuuri is shown putting a ring on Viktor’s finger; they got engaged. This is very new for the whole community. LGBT characters do exist in anime but almost never in ones as popular as Yuri On Ice. These are not the only two characters that the world has thought to be somewhere on the spectrum, characters like Yuri Plisetsky, Otabek Atlin, and Christophe Giacomett. Yuri on Ice is a very diverse show, and not just with sexuality. The show features characters from all around the world, and makes Yuuri and Viktor’s relationship very obvious, not trying to hide it. Which is also very uncommon.

Yuri on ice has become a world wide phenomenon, its merchandise selling everywhere. It has deeply affected the LGBT community in lots of ways. If you want to watch it, its available on crunchyroll, funmation, and other related sites. I recommend the show because it has a good plotline and is very LGBT friendly.
