Yuri is the name of one of the main characters, and I am so excited!
This show as just announced a few days ago, but oh my god, look how beautiful the PV is!
Take a look at who's working on it as well:
Director, Series Composition: Sayo Yamamoto (Michiko to Hatchin) Original Character Design: Mitsurou Kubo (Again!!) Character Design: Tadashi Hiramatsu (Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu) Music: Tarou Umebayashi, Taku Matsushiba Music Producer: Keisuke Tominaga (Zankyou no Terror) Figure Skating Choreography: Kenji Miyamoto Studio: MAPPA
Yuuri Katsuki: Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Durarara!!) Viktor Nikiforov: Junichi Suwabe (Fate/stay night) Yuri Plisetsky: Kouki Uchiyama (Amagi Brilliant Park)
It's an original, so there isn't much to go on, but I did hear the following...
"The project, which has been planned for four years, is created by mangaka Mitsurou Kubo and director Sayo Yamamoto. According to Kubo, the two visited Barcelona, Russia, and Beijing for location hunts. Kubo has also created 900 pages of draft scripts in manga format."
ITS BEEN IN PLANNING FOR FOUR YEARS!
Anything with that much time behind it has got serious potential if you ask me.
Here's the official website, but there's no dates yet so we'll have to hold tight!
