Yuri!! on Ice is definitely one of last season’s hottest anime, and it got a lot of people interested in the sport of figure skating. Now, the anime will be holding a special event titled Yuri!!! on Ice ~Figure Skate o 100-Bai Tanoshimu Shuuchuu Kougi~”, which will use the figure skating techniques featured in the anime to teach fans how to skate properly.
The skating choreographer who helped out in the anime, Kenji Miyamoto, together with pro figure skater Akiko Suzuki, will be whipping fans into shape for the event. The event will be split into two sessions, with series creator, Mitsurou Kubo, and voice actors/seiyuu Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Yuri Katsuki), Yuutarou Honjou (Guang-Hong Ji), and Shunichi Toki (Leo de la Iglesia) being featured in the first session. As for the second session, it will feature Kouki Uchiyama (Yuri Plisetsky) together with Toshiyuki Toyonaga and Mitsurou Kubo.
The event will be held on March 3, 2017, at Tokyo’s Nakano Sun Plaza, with tickets costing 4,500 yen. 48 theaters across Japan will also be streaming the event as there is a “high demand” for it.
