A quick overview
Yuri on Ice Plot
The anime revolves around a 23 year old Japanese skater Yuri Katsuki. After being defeated in the Grand Prix Final and other competitions, Yuri develops hesitance towards skating as a career and puts his career on hold. To figure himself and his career out, Yuri goes back to his hometown. When a small public performance of Yuri is recorded and uploaded on the internet, it catches Victor’s attention who then proposes to train Yuri.
After learning about Victor’s career decision, Yuri Plisetsky, a rising 15-year-old Russian prodigy skater, travels to Hasetsu to make Victor keep a promise made prior to the beginning of the series. Victor had promised he would choreograph a routine specifically for Yuri P. if he won the Junior World Championships, which Yuri P. presumably did. Victor, having forgotten about his promise to Yuri P., makes the two Yuris compete against each other to decide who he will coach. He chooses two songs for the skaters, both with the same melody but with a different meaning. The first song, “Agape”, was about unconditional love, and is given to Yuri P. The second song, “Eros,” is about sexual love, and is given to Yuri K. Yuri K.’s performance wins, and Victor becomes Yuri K.’s coach. Yuri P. returns to Russia, and both Yuris vow to win the Grand Prix championship. (Source)
