Figure skating anime Yuri!!! on Ice has taken the world by storm with its gripping storyline, beautifully animated choreography and catchy theme tune — so much so that Japanese figure skaters Miu Suzaki and Ryuichi Kihara performed a routine set to music from the show in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games!
Centered around competitive Japanese figure skater Yuri Katsuki, Yuri!!! on Ice follows Yuri and his coach-turned-love interest Victor Nikiforov as he prepares to compete against teenage rival Yuri Plisetsky and others in the Grand Prix championship.
If you’re still struggling to come to terms with the end of the first season, here’s a little something to help fill the gaping Yuri-shaped hole in your heart until Yuri!!! on Ice: Ice Adolescence hits our screens in 2019.
These chibi-style Nendoroid figurines of Yuri K., Yuri P. and Victor are super kawaii, and come complete with an array of accessories, plus multiple facial expressions and hairstyles so that you can recreate your favourite scene. Get them all and more from Tokyo Otaku Mode, with shipping available worldwide.
These GOODSMILE Yuri!!! on Ice x Sanrio figurines are cuter than cute, and star Yuri K. with skating partner Pochacco, Victor with Pompompurin and a sullen-looking Yuri P. with Hello Kitty. If they’re out of stock above, try My Kombini or Hobby Search.
Hot Topic have a range of official Yuri!!! on Ice products that ship from the USA. You can cuddle up to Victor all night long with this super snuggly body pillow featuring the Russian coach himself in full skating attire on one side, and a close-up of his blushing face on the other. Aww!
My beloved My Neighbour Totoro purse may have to take an early retirement as this Yuri!!! on Ice wallet is way too cool to pass up.
Part glove, part mitten, these Makkachin glomitts will not only keep your hands nice and toasty this winter, but also make them look pretty darn cute, too.
