Of all the things I could talk to Courtney Milan about, I think the best topic would be…figure skating. Specifically, Yuri!!! On Ice. Yuri!!! on Ice is an anime that contains multitudes, and it has been making Courtney happy for awhile now. So I asked her to tell me all about Yuri!!! on Ice.
We discuss what she loves about the show, and how the narrative structure of Yuri!!! has illuminated for her elements of storytelling that frustrate her as a romance writer.
Note: we do talk a bit about depression, sexual harassment at 20:35
And then, there’s a Big spoiler to the series in a part where we’re discussing narrative structure.
Don’t worry - you’ll hear me break in and warn you, and say how far to skip ahead.
We talk about storytelling structures, methods of revealing multiple plots, and other anime recommendations for curious viewers.
One of my favorite things is asking people who take epic deep dives into the things they love to tell me all about it. I hope you enjoy it as well.
