So the countdown to Yuri On Ice’s 4th episode begins.
Yes. I broke my own rule – to wait until the entire anime series is finished.
As I’ve mentioned on my previous post about writing struggles, staying up-to-date with the recent anime releases is a huge challenge.
I can’t do it.
I’m an entire season behind and I’ve always stuck to the personal rule I’ve set to only watch a series once it’s completed because I find it easier to munch information and truly get into the story by not breaking the momentum just to wait for a whole week before the next episode comes out.
Enter Yuri on Ice.
Enter Viktor without warning.
Enter Yuri and Yurio and their fanboy-like devotion to Viktor.
I tried to brush the spoilers off. I did!
But being on Twitter and Tumblr everyday (especially every Thursdays) makes it insanely difficult NOT to stare at those beautiful gifs and suggestive fanarts from the amazing artists – slash – BL fans worldwide!
I felt my senses so harassed – visuals, music, taste ( because Katsudon happens to be one of my favorite Japanese foods).
Then there was the voice-acting.
I gave up. Finally I decided to stop resisting and just watch ONE episode – the PILOT episode.
But who am I kidding? Of course ONE episode wouldn’t be enough. And I knew I’m so doomed when I finished watching the first three episodes with Yurio’s Agape and Yuri’s Eros still replaying all over my head – nonstop.
And NO Yuri! You didn’t just hug Viktor without warning! You didn’t.
The 4th episode needs to be out, and I know the sentiment is shared by other fans, but unfortunately, we need to wait. The combined feeling of frustration from not being able to know immediately what happens next ( Yes, instant gratification is at work here) and the excitement for what’s the next big surprise is…unbearable.
I’m used to watching anime series in one go. So the wait feels like an agonizing test of patience with no other options than to respect the predetermined airing schedule.
So yes, I just have to let this out.
