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 picture 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 dissappear 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 garbage but no that line was said afterward..
So after watching that scene I admit i was very worried about the course of 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?

Review : A tap into the colorfull world of BL webtoon/manhwa

Lately i’m following more and more manhwa from korea and china. It is very interesting to watch the evolution and adaptation of Japanese manga art in other countries

i believe lots of BL fans already know about this very refreshin manhua/webtoon in full colour especially 19 days and bagjwi sayug, but i’m sure you wont mind if i review it again
if you havent read these, well what were you waiting for? read it NOW

19 Days (19  Tian)

19days is a chinese BL manga by the author OldXian This slice  of life comedical story revolves around two buddies called Jian Yi and Zhan Zhenxi and their entangled dramatical relationship

being true to the slice of life aspect, this story is really like slices and pieces of life around the coming of age of these boys. Beside the shonen-ai aspect, this story is about true friendship and we get to feel the emotion and suffering of this teenager who are still figuring out and dont know what to do with their life and their feeling

The 4 main character; HeTian, JianYi, ZhanZhenxi, & The read hair guy

Raising a Bat (Bagjwi Sayug)
tumblr_nxmyf8oka51ujqszso1_500

http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/raising_a_bat/

Park Min Gyeom is a human with a disease called hemochromatosis  his blood absorbs too much iron, so he has to donate it regularly to stay healthy. Kim Chun Sam is a half-vampire who needs blood to live. So begins an unusual symbiotic relationship between “predator” and “prey.”

Bagjwi Sayug is a sweet coming of age story about an awkward vampire, and a bitter wounded boy. It was really  cute at first but it is also really dark dealing with emotional abuse and a series of messed up misunderstanding gone wrong and the long healing process.

Out of Control (Bbong); Never Understand

bd1196a07519591fe2914d42121584f9
http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/never_understand/

Yuri, one of the school’s most handsome guys, and Jaerim, one of the school’s ugliest, collide!…or don’t they…Can’t understand what’s going on between these two! It’s Out of Control!!

I LOVEEEEEEE this unusual pair of stubborn ugly duckling and the mean ‘ice hearted’ prince. It isnt like typical shoujo or bl manga where the heroin consider themself ugly but infact still drawn really cute. Jaerim IS ugly but it doesnt stop Yuri to fall hard head over heels about him

Moritat

wide
http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/moritat/

With all his memories wiped out, Jesse, wakes up in the hospital and in front of him stands a man that suggests he’s Jesse’s lover. However, the only fragmented memory Jesse has of that man is him trying to kill Jesse. But is his fragile memory reliable? Who’s telling the truth and what is actually going on? Why was he in the hospital to begin with?

Moritat is a psychological thriller in this story we try to unravel what have really happened before Jesse lost his memory and the mind battle between the two character Jesse and Law. What does Law really want ? Does he really love him or he just want to control Jesse to take his power and wealth. From what i’ve read so far this story is certainly not a romance.

Blood Bank

wide2.jpg
http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/blood_bank/

Blood Bank is where vampires come to buy human blood! In a land where vampires, the supreme beings, rule human beings, there are those that have abnormalities. These vampires, while still superior, prefer to be ruled and commanded by humans. See how Shell, the son of a Blood Bank lord, falls for a mere human banker, One.

Beneath the fantastical alternate universe background i like how true they describing a bdsm dominant submissive relationship, which is each party involved should consent and enjoy the aspect of this relationship. It was focusing on the bdsm build up at the start but its not all about that we can enjoy very interesting plot and also emotional sweetness as we see the two main character falls in love

1

Royal Servant
wide3.jpg

http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/royal_servant/

“I love you, Master.” Born as a servant but falls in love with the man who hates servants. A romantic fantasy between master and servant.

You can see it painfully clear from the title and the synopsis that this manhwa also explore the topic of dominant submissive relationship. But in this manga you didnt get to see the sweet aspect of it or maybe it didn’t reach that part yet. You can see Kyon is not actually enjoying bdsm treatment by Lucaon he is just submitting because he falls in love with Lucaon and he did getting aroused because he gets to have sex with the man of his dreams but its not consensual at first in my opinion

What Lies at The End (Geu Kkeute Issneun Geos) or
At the End of the Road

http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/geu_kkeute_issneun_geos/

After a car accident, Taemin finds himself in the body of Siwon, who was a victim of bullying at school. No longer a pushover, he starts standing up for himself but then meets Woojin, an old friend from the past. Somehow, Woojin immediately picks up Tamin’s ‘scent’ from Siwon. What happened between these two in the past and how will it affect their future?

Taemin had died leaving his struggling miserable live behind but he was given a chance to live again as Siwon, someone who had appeared in his dreams getting bullied and commited suicide. He decided to take the chance and lives as Siwon somehow he encounter someone from his past Woojin

Honestly i still dont know what to expect from this manga beneath those angry predisposition and the high sexual  tense between the two main character

A guy like you

000-png
http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/a_man_like_you/

Go Siwon’s dreams are constantly visited by the clever, beautiful Kang Jinha. In the dream, Jinha keeps on mentioning this “incident” that happened between them but Siwon can’t remember anything! And how can it feel so real? Luckily for Siwon, hints about the “incident” start to appear and Siwon is able to regain his memory bit by bit. How will their relationship change at the end

Keep on seeing a weird dream with someone he hardly ever talked too, go siwon was troubled but also really curious about kang jinha . I found another reaccuring pattern in these manhwa which is the cold domineering seme roles often potrayed as blond/light colored hair guy, and a reluctant uke that is often unwillingly forced into the relationship this pattern was really popular in classic japanese manga as well and you can see it very clearly in stories like royal servant, what lies at the end and a man like you.

Review: Yuri On Ice

a18191-2291224427-1469808485

Now its about time that i share my thought on this hot groundbreaking sport anime
YURI ON ICE!!!

or the one fans been saying Yaoi on Ice since day one
but no Yuri on Ice is not a Yaoi anime its Sport anime and that is exactly what make it so special

you know fujoshi really love sports anime such as haikyuu or free!! and its has been forever that they ship pairing from those sport anime, but as you can see all over the social media, it is here where our fantasy OTP finally become REAL or canon
and its really really REALLY means a lot to so many of us


it not about yaoi/boys love homosexual romance it is about ice skating sport and competition but its okay to have the wholesome and healty gay relationship as the main focus and it was such a beautiful relationship without over exaggerating on the sexuality

even the maker Kubo sensei was not planning on making this sport anime to turns out this way but she said the characther took shapes on their own and they are obviously meant to be together

and when it gets romantic it really makes you squeel make you hear burst with happiness

artbooksNat

by the way the fandom reaction is so amazing this anime really have fun fandom who watch and analize and also making some really gorgeous fanarts
and i also love to watch the youtuber reaction when girl and boys even tho they arent necessarily can watch it together and enjoy it as it is and ofcourse ship VICTUURI together
after you watch do drop by to instagram and tumblr to see how much this fandom have to offer

really fun yuri on ice “born to make history” op song parody

awesome articles reviews about Yuri on Ice (contain spoilers so make sure you watch the anime first)

A Slight Smile is Very Charming (微微一笑很倾城) KO x Mei BL Cut

A cute story caught my interest last week

Because the bl couple is just the side story from hetero drama they dont show much BL but i learn that in the novel Ko and Mei/MoZha are actually lovers

And their story in the novel is really2 cute

I like the spin off of having rich uke and poor seme

Even if the seme not rich he can still be very charming and much more attractive

Also the seme is very laid back not over jealous type but he can control his uke very well with his wit

While the uke is very cute guillable type but easy to provoke

The cast of the drama looked so lovely together !I still dont know their real name but i’ll find out 

“Haomei”aka Mojata? /Mozhahim (dont hit him) a cute IT expert

Review: Feng Yu Jiu Tian

纵使成为十一国之主 你是我的容恬
纵使兵败国亡 你是我的容恬
就像我 永远是你的凤鸣

Even though you become the king of the 11 kingdoms, you are my Rong Tian.
Even though you lose in the battle, you are my Rong Tian.
Just like me, I am always your Feng Ming.
– Feng Ming to Rong Tian

天下壮丽江山 吴与你共享
世间轰烈快事 吾与你分尝
惟有灾难 吾一人独挡

I will share this beautiful world together with you.
I will share this world’s most happiest things with you.
Only disaster I will bear it alone.
– Rong Tian to Feng Ming

 

凤于九天 The Ravishing of the Crown Prince (Feng Yu Jiu Tian)

Feng Ming was only 19 when he lost his life saving a child from death.  Without hesitation, the grateful father of the rescued child grants Feng Ming a second chance at life. Unknown to Feng Ming, his soul is whisked away to a far away ancient land (resembling the dynasties of China.)

Upon waking up, he finds himself inhabiting the frail body of Xi Lei/Thunder Kingdom’s crowned prince who is also graced  with the title of the most beautiful man across all the lands. However, his beauty has a price as he attracts the unwanted attention of the minister of affairs, Rong Tian who finds every reason to torment the prince mentally and physically. As Feng Ming starts to get a-hold of the conspiracies surrounding him, what will happen when the prince’s  true identity is revealed?’ And what actually happened to the ‘real’ prince?

Another story got me smitten, really this story worth to be called epic
Very detailed and enchanting saga if i may compare this story with something like harry potter
Also as a fans of juunikokki and taiko this story really among those historical fantasy epic, the best thing of course that its a BL version of those story i loved.
The love story is so sweet and the character oh the characther have depth you’ll love or hate each and everyone of them. And yes since i categorized this as a saga, this is a long ass story with most likely would be 30 long volumes. I managed to read the english translation up to mid volume14 and wow what a ride so much have happened that made me laugh, anxious, blush and cry (hueee my ludaaan)

FENG NONG’s Message to her fans:

Words to fans? I’m very happy to have fans in the US and overseas. Because there are passionate fans to do translation, everyone was able to know about “Feng Yu Jiu Tian”
– it was a very nice surprise.
My English is not good, therefore communicating in English is quite difficult, but, I will work hard to improve my English.
“Feng Yu Jiu Tian” started out as a simple time-traveling story. Originally, I wanted to write about a beautiful young man who arrived in ancient period and met many handsome men who tried to woo him, haha. Afterwards, I didn’t know why it became more and more complicated. There are currently 29 Volumes written, I’m working on
writing the 30th. I hope everyone will continue to like this story more and more. I will also put in the effort to give the story a beautiful ending.

BL News: Sotus the Series Coming Soon

Finally after 1 year waiting Sotus the series will be released in August, and maybe international fans can enjoy latest on september
what is so special about this BL drama, well i’m hoping it would be great starting from the cast acting skill (judging from the trailer) i’m hoping it will be in par with Hormones rather than Lovesick
Compare to LS or MIR (Make it right) this story will be based on Collage setting (not highschool) and more young adult rather than teenager

 

plot introduction from Psycho Drama
Storyline | Backgrounder: Apparently, we have graduated from middle school and are now in Uni. There’s a system called “SOTUS” whereby Junior level studes are required to mentor freshmen. Enters a rather assertive and vocal “freshy” named Kongpob (Singto Prachaya) who gets to be under the mentorship of Artit (Kristtps Kasetsart). As is the usual case, when you have a pro-active freshman being told what to do, there’s always fireworks. Note that Artit also asserts himself and wants Kongpob all to himself… so there’s the rub!
