Yuri on Ice Fandom vs Animefest Dallas: Gays in Tights Edition

This is going to be quick and is mostly in lieu of me tweeting eight million tweets, which I kind of already did, but I’m a long-form girl and I’d like to state clearly, once, what’s happened here at Animefest, in once place. Other con-goers will have their own experiences and their own platforms. I […]

Yuri on Ice Rewatch/Review: Episode Four – Like Yourself and Complete the Free Program

This is just hands down one of my favorite episodes. I mean, I love episodes seven and ten as well, but this one is special because in so many ways it’s where their relationship truly begins. It’s where Yuri stops putting Victor on a pedestal. It’s where Victor figures out how to coach him, at […]

Yuri on Ice episode 3: I am Eros and Eros is Me?! Face-Off! Hot Springs on Ice

Three posts in one day today. Don’t get used to this. Back in to the anime and manga reviews, and back into Yuri on Ice, where we’re all the way to episode three. What I love about this episode is it’s the turning point, the moment where Yuri stops being a big freakout and reveals […]

Rewatch Recap/Reaction — Yuri on Ice Episode Two: Two Yuris?! Drama at Yu-topia

Continuing my rewatch and recap/reaction of Yuri on Ice, cross-posting on my blog, tumblr, and Patreon. I realized yesterday this is actually my third recap—somewhere on my blog is my reaction post post-episode ten, a retrospective once we knew what Victor had been hiding. The people who used to follow my blog for rants and […]

Yuri on Ice, Episode 1: Easy as Pirozhki!! The Grand Prix Final of Tears

A reminder this is the second time I’ve recapped this episode, and this is a more casual version, though also far more informed. Probably this is best consumed if you’ve seen the show, though you’re free to wade in if you hadn’t But you should watch the show. So I watched this on my BD […]

Heidi’s Month of Manga and Anime: Yuri!!! on Stage & Yutora!!! O.S.T.

I was all set to start off my first post in this series of anime and manga by rewatching Yuri on Ice, and then yesterday I get this package in the mail from September Scanlations. This is, basically, a proxy service, which bought and shipped Yuri!!! On Stage and Yutora!!!O.S.T. to me after purchasing it […]

Born to Make History: Yuri on Ice Episode 12, History Made and Next Level Feels on Deck

Honestly, I should wait until tomorrow to write this recap and analysis, as I am still a teabag of feels still steeping, but I’m also Little Miss Brood and should frankly get my butt back to writing books tomorrow, so let’s write this bitch before I get caught up in the day job or the […]

Born to Make History, Supplemental: Yuri on Ice—The Gift of the Undefined Romance

Spoilers for Yuri on Ice up in here, folks. You’ve been warned. This non-recap post is part me escaping pre-Christmas responsibilities (not really feeling it this year, TBH) and part giving into an increasingly burning need to talk through stuff percolating as I think through my recent re-watch of episodes 1-10 after our revelatory credits […]

Born to Make History, Supplemental: Victor Nikiforov Weeps for Toxic Masculinity

I swear this isn’t going to turn into a Yuri on Ice blog, and I promise I still am writing fiction, though I’m getting dangerously close to a volume of printable work on this show alone. Here’s the thing, though, episode ten really did change the whole game, and it’s going to keep changing things. At […]
