‘Yuri!!! On Ice' Is Based On Real Life? Joel Minas Takes The Center Stage Again
“Yuri!!! On Ice” has one of the biggest fanbases in the anime industry right now. However, they are still divided when it comes to the origin of the show. Most fans believe that the story is based on real life while some of them think that it is just a plain story from Mitsurou Kubo. Also, the Filipino figure skater Joel Minas takes the center stage again and performed “Eros”.
‘Yuri!!! On Ice’ and its Success
There is no doubt that “Yuri!!! On Ice” will go down in history books as one of the most popular and entertaining anime TV series ever. “Yuri!!! On Ice's” first season took the anime world by storm especially when they showcased different dimension in the business. For those who aren’t familiar yet, “Yuri!!! On Ice” is about a boy named Yuri Katsuki who wants to prove to everybody that he is the best at figure skating. What makes it more intriguing is the same-sex relationship being depicted by the show which is applauded by many but disgusted by some.
Real Life Figure Skaters vs Anime TV Series
The characters on the show might not seem special but for avid real life figure skating fans, the resemblance of the multiple characters in anime and real life is uncanny. First, there is Yuri Plisetsky, a 15-year-oldsensation who can be considered as a rival of Yuri Katsuki. The way Yuri Plisetsky is presented in the series is somewhat similar to Yulia Lipnitskaya, a real life figure skater. Both of them are nicknamed “The Russian Fairy”. Also, Yuri and Yulia have the same fashion sense and cat lovers.
Second, the main character on the show, Yuri Katsuki. Now, this might be a little tricky since Yuri Katsuki is compared to numerous real life skaters. The closest however is Tatsuki Machida. Machida’s career and skating styles are the same with Yuri Katsuki. There are debates that Yuzuru Hanyus is the blueprint for Yuri Katsuki’s character but since the Grand Prix was introduced, it was crystal clear that Mitsurou Kubo’s characters are based on Machida.
Joel Minas ‘Eros’
Also, there are multiple characters on the show who are said to be part of the real life figure skating. Like the announcer in the Grand Prix, he is actually derived from a real, Japanese professional figure skating analyst. Lastly, Joel Minas again showed its undying support to “Yuri!!! On Ice” when he wowed the crowd with his rendition of ‘Eros”.
