During the Pair Skating competition at the Winter 2018 Olympic Games something amazing happened that had many a Yuri on Ice fan cheering for joy, the Japanese pair of Miu Sazaki and Ryuichi Kihara performed a beautifully stunning set to the track Yuri on Ice from the anime. In this one moment the story of Yuri on Ice has come full circle. This was an amazing day for the sport of figure skating as it was filled with many magnificent performances that had me glued to my screen watching. But as soon as this pair entered the ice and the music started playing my inner fangirl swirled like a dancer on the ice.
This performance was proof of the wide appeal this anime has had on popular culture and I hope that many other anime in the future can do the same.
