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 ♥

QingYu Hey Hey Hey

14th/15th of Mei is QingYu debut anniversary, so according to FengJianYu, he and WangQing have something private to do just between both of them …

okay then Dayu i’m sure you are enjoying your private time tonite maybe some Dinner and some Hey hey hey :p

Speaking of Hey hey hey, tonite i want to discuss the recently translated Yinyuetai 151225 interview by Qingyu International FC that we have been waiting for.
It’s great to have a shipper as the MC

First the way Baba WangQing keep falling into Uncle GuoTao trap was very cute

He cant hide his eagerness to describe how Dayu eyes are beautiful, ofcourse because it is the one thing that made him fall for dayu i think.
When Dayu stare at him here he even say dont look at me its dazzling me awwwww

Guo Tao was right when he said Dayu is one lucky cat, after Qingge lean on his shoulder to express ‘spoiled cat’, Dayu was shy and looking at Qingge after Guotao said that :3

when Qingge gets the penalty/punishment of kissing Dayu he was rather happy

Dayu said whose penalty is this LOL

okay enjoy the videos, thanks to the dedicated subber and translator

FYI what they mean on the video by “Hey hey hey” were Sex :p

the ‘f’ word

I’ve been wanting to write this for a while now, seeing how lgbt ban/censorship in Chinese media becomes a very hot topic now i want to address this issue

Because my background on humanity studies and graduation paper about social discourse regarding homosexuality in japan, and also my hobby to explore BL fiction/movies in asian countries  i’m really interested on comparing the ‘fujoshi’ discourse in Japan, China, Thailand, and also my own country Indonesia

Lets skip Japan the orign of all this fujoshi and yaoi stuff, you can check that in some other time and place, if we start that it will go on and on

http://www.kyotomm.jp/english/info/symposium3.php

lets start with the current hot Topic Chinese Danmei

CHINESE DANMEI AND FUJOSHI

Danmei is the Chinese equivalent of Yaoi

This is a very good article about yaoi/danmei and fujoshi culture evolution in China compared to its native Japan>
https://blogs.nottingham.ac.uk/chinesestudies/2014/09/21/how-one-japanese-subculture-has-evolved-in-china/

One thing that is common in the fujoshi/yaoi fandom are their fondness to create homoerotic fanfiction as their creative outlet. Many of them involved characters from yaoi or regular drama , anime or stories.Or even certain idols CP (couple/pairing) that have certain chemistry. This attitude first came from ‘bromantic’ ‘gayish’  fanservice from Korean and Japanese idols that was proven effective among fangirls.

But then many many talented BL Danmei fiction writers emerged with their own OC (Original Character) Story and getting more popular multiplying the population of Fujos
Some example of their fiction provided in this link> http://bltranslation.blogspot.co.id/

This large ‘girls gone wild’ fujos perhaps alarming for Chinese conservative government.

in 2014 about 20 girls were arrested because of publishing homoerotic slash fiction on the Internet

Earlier this year, during a nationwide clampdown on online pornography, some 20 writers, allegedly under contract with “illegal erotic novel Web sites,” were arrested in Henan province, China, and numerous Web sites with explicit written and visual content were shut down. Most of these writers were young women, many of whom, according to footage from Phoenix TV, a Hong Kong broadcaster, were in their 20s, oblivious to the fact that they were breaking the law. The incident followed a similar spate of arrests in 2011 — again of young female writers.

The women were all writers of gay fiction, known as dan mei, which over the past two decades has gained a vast and dedicated following in China, a country where homosexuality is still heavily stigmatized.
……. Focusing on male-to-male romance, dan mei (which may be literally translated as “indulgence in beauty”) has surprisingly spawned an exclusive fan base: Its readers and writers are nearly all straight young women and girls.

indonesian article>> http://jurnalotaku.com/2014/04/27/20-fujoshi-ditangkap-di-china-karena-telah-membuat-fan-fiction-homoerotis/

This restriction however doesnt slow down the hungry fujoshi’s market, in that same year 2014 a web series Like Love from a Danmei novel by Angelina”I still love you even if you are men”became a hit pushing a new genre of Danmei drama

the promotion gay app Blued (chinese grindr) also provide some great mini series for LGBT and fujoshi

After that another author CJD create a web series adaptation first with Counter Attack (falling in love with your rival aka Nixi) in which i fall in love with the main cast CP WangQing and FengJianyu but that was another long long story.

After being successful with her experiment with CA, she decided to  shift to her other Novel Addicted which become a bigger hit.

But then boom the series got “too popular” for the government to ignore
they got banned for circulating because they are viewed as inappropriate and promoting gay culture some sort of anti western thing

Last week the Chinese government pulled a popular drama, Addicted, from being streamed on Chinese websites as it follows two men in gay relationships, causing uproar among the show’s millions of viewers.
The government said the show contravened the new guidelines, which state that “No television drama shall show abnormal sexual relationships and behaviours, such as incest, same-sex relationships, sexual perversion, sexual assault, sexual abuse, sexual violence, and so on.”
……China’s State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television told television producers it would constantly monitor TV channels to ensure the new rules were strictly adhered to.
The clampdown follows an increase in cultural censorship in China since Xi Jinping came to power in November 2012.

http://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2016/mar/04/china-bans-gay-people-television-clampdown-xi-jinping-censorship

The irony is do the Chinese government realize that actually BL and yaoi are very east culture not western, and also if we look back to history the separation of sexual orientation were actually coming from the west?

THAILAND FUJOSHI MARKET CASHING THE PINK DOLLAR

I view thailand as a fujoshi heaven, unlike in China this emerging Fujoshi market is valued as a money machine, while the lgbt community itself already a big market for BL genre movies or series

a gay couple Both and Newyear and some other ‘real’ gay couple enjoyed their popularity among fujoshi and endorsing lots of commercial products (skincare etc) to their instagram follower.

They also have famous Fujo author one of them was P’ Hed , her novel “love sick the chaotic lives of blue shorts guys” that was popular with the netizen become a bigger hit when adapted into a TV series “Love Sick The Series”

Pushing similiar youth BL drama booming in the tv trying to re do LoveSick popularity

INDONESIAN FUJOSHI CONTRADICTION

In Indonesia the situation are also complicated. The major religions in Indonesia especially Islam and Christianity are againts homosexual, and religion is a big , sacred. very important thing in the live of most Indonesian citizen.

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

https://www.kaorinusantara.or.id/newsline/36407/penjuru-internet-press-club-negara-beragama-dan-fujoshi-di-indonesia

it becomes far worse with the surging of anti LGBT movement in Indonesia
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-35657114
http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2016/03/27/asia-pacific/social-issues-asia-pacific/virulent-anti-gay-remarks-test-indonesias-moderate-image/#.Vx0P0FZ97IU

this anti LGBT are mass and the majority still pro about this issues

for example on twitter when i try to search fujoshi and Indonesia the result was extremely ridiculous, one self proclaimed fujoshi even said
” i am a fujoshi , but if lgbt become legal i’ll commit suicide”
this i dont understand her logic here if she really that anti why did he enjoy yaoi/bl fiction at the first place, just ridiculous !

riduculous

however being a moslem myself i can empathize a little with their sentiment sense of guilty and resentment because of liking something that is consider a big sin in our religion

I wont lie i have passed that phase myself when i first encounter the beautiful world of Yaoi Manga, however slowly i have learned to make my private peace and accept my fujoshi identity and my religious identity

i do still hide my identity in most social circumstances especially professional due to unavoidable bad stigma and weird judgement. After all we are labelled ‘rotten girl’ altho i don’t see anything rotten about myself, it is just in my opinion less mainstream form of healthy sexual and creative expression.

But to be judge just by one aspect of yourself is like a horrible thing which i rather avoid at the moment.

case example for fujo in Indonesia by Ms Ni Nyoman Wira
https://anthropapers.wordpress.com/2014/03/02/fujoshi-are-they-really-rotten/

Well for the time being i can only wish that the bigot majority and media stay unaware or silence about the existence of fujoshi
