Yuri skates on the ice and marries his coach.
It was superbly made. Great animation and music, absorbs you into the flow of things. Decent sense of humor, excellent characterizations. Really makes you want to root for all the ice skaters. The best part of the anime was watching the professional ice skaters react to it.
But, unfortunately, I started to lose interest in the second half, once the tournament started in earnest. It’s just the same dance routines over and over again. Well probably it isn’t but I don’t know squat about ice skating so I couldn’t tell. My interest just evaporated after we saw all the same skating routines for the third time.
