The Yuri!!! On Ice anime project was created by manga artist Mitsurou Kubo (Moteki, 3.3.7 Byooshi) and anime director Sayo Yamamoto (Texhnolyze, Lupin III: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna). Yamamoto helmed an anime short titled Endless Night for the 2015 Japan Animator Expo that focused on figure skating and is the basis of the anime. The TV anime aired in October 2016 during the Fall/Autumn 2016 anime season to a large and welcoming reception. The series ran for a total of 12 episodes.
Here is the series synopsis from MAL:
The show’s story revolves around Yuuri Katsuki, who carried all of Japan’s hopes on his shoulders to win at the Gran Prix Finale ice skating competition, but suffered a crushing defeat. He returns home to Kyushu and half feels like he wants to retire, and half feels like he wants to continue ice skating. With those mixed feelings swirling inside him, he confines himself inside his parents house. Suddenly the five-time consecutive world championship ice skater Victor Nikiforov appears before him, and along with him is Yuri Plisetsky, a young Russian figure skater who is already defeating his seniors. Victor and both Yuris take up the challenge on an unprecedented Gran Prix series.
The Yuri!! on Ice movie,Yuri!!! on Ice Movie: Ice Adolescence, has been delayed until further notice.
