    Figure Skating Anime

    Some characters look alike some skaters that we know and Kenji Miyamoto will be handling coreography.

    Teaser

    The anime will be directed by Sayo Yamamoto who also directed the short about Figure Skating "Endless Night"
    Video Start at 1:20 mark

    Tech team looks really amazing

    Manga creator Mitsurou Kubo (Moteki, 3.3.7 Byooshi) and director Sayo Yamamoto (Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, Michiko & Hatchin) are credited with the original work for the series. Yamamoto is also directing and overseeing the scripts for the series, and Kubo is designing the original characters and drawing the storyboards. Additionally, Tadashi Hiramatsu (Parasyte -the maxim-) is adapting the character designs for animation, Kenji Miyamoto is credited with the figure skating choreography, Taro Umebayashi (aka milk from PIANO) and Taku Matsushiba (PIANO) are composing the music, and Keisuke Tominaga (Kids on the Slope, Terror in Resonance music director) is the music producer. MAPPA will animate the series.

    The blond character in the red-and-white Russia jacket is so obviously Plushy

    I believe that if I were to watch it, I'd constantly harp on it for not being realistic... (so I'll pass on this)

    (I think you could get a decent anime out of the current Cricket Club, though. )

    There was a picture I saw that had a second blond character, and the costume and facial expression reminded me of Artur.

    It's a page from the Kiss & Never Cry manga. The character in the left hand corner resembles Tarasova (at least, to me XD).

    Very interesting! I would love to see this, as it would be fun seeing who appears, and how they are portrayed.

    And I see that it is being distributed by Avex Trax, who also distributed Shanadoo, a Japanese girl group that I liked about 10 years ago. (Was it really that long ago???!!! )

    Same here.

    But, what I want to know is when did Tarasova start working with Rika Hongo?!

    (Suffice to say, it's not blocked with me! )

    Probably he is. https://twitter.com/kudryavkaaa/stat...92556510482432 They call Yuri "tsar" (emperor, prince) "living legend" these are Plushy's names in Japan. And we all know his popularity in Japan. This wouldn't be first time when Plushy is an actor in anime, cartoon, game( many people think he inspired Ivan Braginsky in Hetalia etc.)

    But maybe this skater is a mix of Russian skaters.

    I saw the original Endless Night at Animator Expo, as well as a BTS shot of how they did the choreo, it was such a huge thing for such a small video, so I have great hopes that this will work out too. This is the original video, if anyone cares to see it:

    http://rutube.ru/video/9e0db02eed61c...5c601066630de/

    I don't see it here so

    With our main character Katsuo Yuuri played by Toyonaga Toshiyuki, rival skater Yuri Plisetski played by Uchiyama Kouki, and the international super skater Victor Nikiforov played by Suwabe Jun’ichi, we’ve got an amazing cast bursting at the seams with popularity and prowess!
    So sounds like a typical rival plot of anime, but we are still really early in the game with this one.

    Oh lol, there seems to be no doubt!

    Is the premise of the anime known? A typical underdog's-road-to-success or something else? From the teaser it seems to be centered on the men's category... I kinda expected that the first figure skating anime would be about girls, full-blown shoujo.

    ETA: I completely fail at reading, omg. I had the premise right there under my nose.

    There have been other figure skating anime before, but this is the first time I've been impressed by the animation. It was a good idea for them to get a real choreographer on board. Maybe if this becomes successful they'll introduce other disciplines too.
