Review by Nine:
In the beginning I really started to hate this anime because someone spoiled episode 7. Basically whole Facebook blew up because of this anime. I really hated it, I couldn't understand why everyone liked Yuuri and Victor so much. The only character that I basically liked was Yurio.
The story itself was something I really like, because I like figure skating.
I dislike some of the characters a lot but the story itself is good and that is the only reason why this anime is getting a higher rating then it should have.
