Yuri on Ice Theories Discussion (Proceed with caution)

I know some fans might hate me for bringing this up again , i just would like to share what was in my mind.

When Yuri on Ice was airing there was some theory regarding why victor decided to take a leave from professional ice skating and became Yuuri’s coach. Other than seeing Yuuri viral video was there any other reason that was more personal. One of those theory was it because he is sick like cancer or something.

However Kubo sensei does confirm that she will not make this story a tragedy or sad story instead she wants this story to be overflowing with LOVE and now we know that the real reason Victor came to Hasetsu was because he was smitten by a drunk sexy pool dancer that was Yuuri LOL :p
So please chill and dont make a big deal out of what i’m about to say cause it is most likely not the case

This theory was first brought about when Yuuri touch Victor head and Victor commented about his thin hair. And then on episode 10 i got alarmed because some of the dialog did hinted same possibilities

Now other than the dialog that was mentioned above “If i continued to skate Yurio wouldnt be motivated to fight and neither would I..”

Actually if you understand Japanese, the dialog before was also hinting and pretty intense
When Victor squeeze Yurio face he seems pretty pissed aside from Yurio calling Yuuri Pig etc.. Right before that scene the line Yurio was saying さっさと居なくなるジジ which was translated “Just go away already, geezer” while actually 居なくなる (inaku naru) can also translated into to disappear or to die so if we translated it more harshly it will be “Just go and die already, old geezer” which explain why the always calm and laid back Victor was triggered.
Also the first opening line from yurio in this scene was “viktor nikiforov is dead” so it goes with the flow of the dialog.
Some fans think that victor was offended for Yurio calling the ring from Yuuri as garbage but no that line was said afterward..
So after watching that scene I admit i was very worried about the course that the story may take.

In the interview below however Kubo sensei also explain that she may have thought to make Victor sick but decided not too cause that plot would be too much for a 12 episode anime

Kubo: As a story moves from the middle to the later stages, it’s quite common for the protagonist to have something important to him or her taken away. We thought that it was about the right time to do that. That’s why we had Victor leave Yūri’s side momentarily in episode 8. In a long-running manga serial, it’s quite possible that Victor would fall sick or meet with some kind of accident, but we can’t take such a roundabout route for a one-cour anime. That’s why we had Maccachin steal and eat some buns instead (chuckles).

Well that was my thought but certainly not my hope for any of this to happen i’m just saying the possibility. I do wish that Victor and Yuuri would live very very happy and healthy together until they grow old *cough*marriage*cough*

I think the previous plot might be interesting just for fanfic material or something :p
so yeah looking forward for season two i wish for the best for them,

Peace out ♥

Dream event: BL Convention for South East Asia anyone?

Its not that yaoi fans communities is nonexistent in here infact there is already some of event happening that we could say catering to fujoshi in South East Asia.
But i think it would be really cool to combine those event into a much larger event like South East Asia own Boys Love/ Yaoi convention

Things that i wanted to see

♥ BL Anime and Movie festival, launching and promotion
Other than animes from Japan, Thailand have loads of BL series made from BL fiction and they have huge fandom in their own country and it affect the neighboring countries as well

in Bangkok Love Sick the series launching and fanmeets was a huge success

♥ A fan meet & greet of famous BL actor pairing and BL mangaka, BL authors would be great

inviting Asia’s Talent like Angelina (I still love you even tho you are a man aka. Like Love) , Chai Ji Dan (Addicted, Counter Attack), Feng Nong (Feng Yu Jiu Tian), Lan Lin (A round Trip to Love),P’Hed (Love Sick), He Tian (19Days)

♥ Butler Cafes

A Fujoshi’s heaven on earth exists in Ikebukuro’s Boy’s Love Academy cafe

♥ Comic Market with lots of Yaoi Doujinshi circle and Fan Artbooks

Samples of Gallery display for inspiration

♥ it should be fanbase oriented

AFA in Indonesia invite baozi and hana every year! because their fanbase is pretty much establish and will support a lot with attending the exhibition and buy their merchandise

http://showbiz.liputan6.com/read/2327624/cosplayer-yaoi-baozi-hana-meriahkan-anime-festival-asia-2015

its really important to recognize this fanbase, Let the fanbase create special activities for their fandom
Since i’m a huge fandom member as well  it would be pretty cool if we could gather all of the favourite CP, OTP, Ship with large fanbase in south east asia
such as BaoziHana, BNY, QingYu, Leo x Lucas, White Captain and let them have their fan activities would be really fun to watch


Existing Communities
https://www.facebook.com/Indonesia-Fujoshi-Forum-pecinta-yaoi-161024260585116/?fref=ts

If we are talking about fujoshi event. The largest of it all is Japanese Comic Market, eventho like AFA it was not 100% fujo oriented, i’ve heard that the first time Comiket ever held the attendees was 90% girls.
another event in Japan for girls >https://www.animate.co.jp/ex/agf/

So i’m thinking since Japan is sooo far away it would be very cool to have something like that here too

https://ahotaku39.wordpress.com/2015/01/27/unofficial-translation-women-and-yaoi-in-japanese-doujinshi-culture/

whats interesting in fujoshi communities in South East Asia or anywhere outside Japan that its not about just japanese bl manga and anime anymore. i think its really facinating to explore that and showcase how far the communities have grown

https://ahotaku39.wordpress.com/2015/01/23/fujoshi-rising-a-preliminary-view-on-the-rising-yaoi-subculture-in-indonesia/

In USA they have this kind of event
http://www.yaoicon.com/
http://www.bishounencon.com/

Samples of event that is already happening here

ANICULT
https://www.facebook.com/AniCult/?fref=ts

In Indonesia the closest thing we ever have for this kind of event is Anicult in Surabaya, tho its still subtext as a regular anime exhibition but compare to AFA (Anime Festival Asia) that largely caters for otaku boys , Anicult exhibitor and content largely caters to girls

The event successfully invited Mangaka like Nekota Yonezoh sensei in the previous event isnt that cool?

COMIFURO
http://comifuro.net/
https://www.facebook.com/Comifuro/?fref=ts

Comifuro or Comic Frontier is an annual event for local manga/doujinka circle to display their works, and when i say Doujin you can guess that there will be load of yaoi doujin there to 

By the way the next Comifuro will be held on 21st of January 2017
http://comifuro.net/webcatalog/comifuro-8/

OTPCON
https://www.facebook.com/OTPcon/

OTPCon/C2Fiesta is one of organizer of such event in smaller scale recently they sucessfully held Moviedome where Movie fans can display their fanworks. The opening of next year they will held Yuri on Ice fan gathering! how awesome i hope i dont miss that

Last but not least

THE PRINCE BOYS AND LOVE MINI CONVENTION
https://www.facebook.com/blhostclub/?fref=ts

In Jakarta they have already attempted to made this kind of event in a form of BL butler cafes, and i would say their first attempt was really successful i went there and it was soo much fun. In this event we gather with fellow fujoshi watched some Yaoi OVAS, and My oh my all that juicy fan services
Unfortunately sharing picture was prohibited, try to imagine from the menu served

https://japanesestation.com/event-coverage-the-prince-boys-love-mini-convention-mini-gathering-khusus-fujoshi-pertama-di-jakarta/

as much as like the events held here its still not very ‘safe’ to held such events here in big and public scale, so i’m thinking Bangkok would be great place to have it dont you think?

BTW next february i’ll also be attending LEO and LUCAS Fanmeet in Bangkok SUPER EXCITED

Okay that all from me what do you think ? Do you like this kind of event? Do you already have this kind of event in your country?
