Yuri!!! On Ice is finally getting its second season and it might not be anytime soon. But every hint has just pointed to the possibility of it, so a definite release date would put a lot of fans of the anime at ease.
Yuri!!! On Ice Season 2 Official Announcement Not Anytime Soon
The Yuri!!! On Ice season 2 official announcement may be a long time before coming, and the international release of season 1 Blu-rays and DVDs is not looking so promising either, according to Rocket News 24.
Anime publisher Avex Pictures recently announced that it is restricting Blu-ray, DVD, and CD exports of all its titles as of February 15. The news may be disheartening to international fans, who have been looking forward to the planned six Blu-ray/DVD discs of the phenomenal sports anime. However, locally licensed discs may be available soon from overseas publishers. This is good news for fans who do not mind waiting for several more months.
Yuri!!! On Ice Screening
But on the bright side, the entire first season of Yuri!!! On Ice was previously presented in an all-night screening on February 11 at 10 p.m. JST. The event also included a talk show segment that featured the anime’s creator, Mitsurou Kubo, and voice actors Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Yuri), Junichi Suwabe (Victor) and Kouki Uchiyama (Yurio).
The full event was streamed live to 47 cinemas around Japan. And at the end of the event, a commemorative image of the anime’s skaters posing for a groufie was shared online.
Interview With Yuri!!! On Ice’s Mitsurou Kubo
Meanwhile, a portion of an interview with Kubo was previously posted on Tumblr. The translation revealed that the anime creator has a lot of plans in the works for Yuri!!! On Ice, including a desire to do a sequel, for which she would be working very hard to achieve.
Is it safe to assume that a continuation of Victor and Yuri’s professional journey and romantic affair could happen later this year?
