Mitsurou Kubo, Sayo Yamamoto, and MAPPA’s hit figure skating series Yuri!!! On Ice recently held a special event called Yuri!!! On Stage last 29th April 2017 at the Maihama Amphitheatre in Chiba Prefecture.
The events was also broadcast to cinemas all over Japan via live viewing. There are plenty of huge announcements at the event, but we’ll try to condense them into bite-sized pieces for your enjoyment!
Let’s start with the big one: there is going to be Yuri!!! on Ice movie! And no, it’s not just some re-cut and re-edited scenes from the original TV series.
The movie will feature a whole new story and brand new animation. No news yet on whether this will be a prequel, a sequel, or a side story of the animated TV series — but whatever it is, we’ll take it!!!
All the voice actors present at the event took part in a live dubbing session of a scene written but not animated for the TV series — owing to the fact that it was too risque and would probably land the entire production in hot water with the censors!
The story revolves around everyone gathering in Hasetsu as part of the Victor and Friends exhibition skate. Everyone gets wasted, and the evening ends with Victor storming off due to jealous argument with Yuuri. The next morning finds the world skating champion in a very unusual and compromising position!
If you want to find out exactly what happened, the Yuri!!! On Stage event has been filmed in its entirety, and will be released as a special event DVD by 28th July 2017.
