So this series about ice skating has certainly captured the attention of a lot of people, for various reasons. :) Anyone else jamming on this one?
I've only watched a few other sports anime and they aren't usually my thing, but this one got me on multiple levels: it's a sport I like; the animation is mostly great; it's very well-plotted; I like the characters, and
the relationships actually progress in mostly realistic ways, even though ep 10 turned a lot of things on their heads
I'm finding it pretty delightful that RL pro ice skaters are enjoying it (Johnny Weir just got into it, and was tweeting about it a whole bunch!), and also that some of the characters are pretty clearly based on skating personalities in looks or attitude or both. The skating routines are accurate, too, and there's a former skater on staff to vet things.
There are only two more eps to go before S1 is done, and while they've talked about being open to an S2, I don't think it's been confirmed yet.
