Does the Kiss make it a BL Series?

Now that I have fully recovered from this weeks episode of Yuri on Ice and that ending that well made quite a splash online (#yurionice was even trending on twitter for a couple of hours) I must admit I found myself thinking; Does this make Yuri on Ice a BL series?

Also yes I do realize it is Friday and this should be a Fanfiction Rec post but I wanted to get this out there quickly before the poll I started on Twitter and in the Yaoi Worshippers Amino finish because I’m curious as to how fans are reacting to this.

Needless to say I’ve been asked by many if I personally think the series is BL to which at the moment I have to say I am not sure. See there was a similar moment in two other animes not classed as BL those being Kyou Kara Maou and No. 6, though both popular with a fujoshi audience base they are not classed as BL just for these moments.

If Yuri on Ice goes into a direction that further explores a canon romance between Victor and Yuri then maybe I will change my standing on whether the series is Boys Love but at this point I have to say no, and that this little moment was yet another piece of fanservice.
