After enduring a crushing defeat at the prestigious Grand Prix Finale, Yuuri Katsuki, once hailed as Japan's most promising figure skater, seeks solace in his family home as he contemplates his future prospects. Approaching the age of 23, Yuuri realizes that time is swiftly slipping away, further pressured by his affinity for indulging in pork cutlets and the ever-present challenge of managing his weight. However, a fateful turn of events thrusts Yuuri into the dazzling spotlight when a video of him flawlessly performing a routine previously executed by the five-time world champion, Victor Nikiforov, sets the internet ablaze. In a twist of fate, Victor himself materializes at Yuuri's humble abode, extending an unexpected offer to become his mentor. Fuelled by his unwavering dedication to the sport and undying admiration for his idol, Yuuri eagerly embraces the opportunity, igniting a transformative journey to reclaim his position on the grand world stage. Yet the path to redemption proves treacherous, as an up-and-coming star from Russia named Yuri Plisetsky emerges with an insatiable determination to dethrone Yuuri and reclaim Victor's coveted guidance. With emotions running high and the stakes higher than ever, Yuuri must summon every ounce of his willpower and skill to surpass the formidable challenges that lie in wait.
