We have known for a long time that figure skaters love the depiction of their sport in Yuri!!! on Ice due to the accuracy of the dances and the realistic use of skating techniques. But now, pole dancers are throwing their praise on stage.
Episode 10's ending sequence included a pole dance segment by Yuuri Katsuki and Christophe Giacometti. Japanese pole dancers took to Twitter to comment that the dance moves are the real deal and are doable. Maybe except for Christophe, because that guy is doing some advanced moves. What a show off.
Here are just a few of the authentic moves.
Superman: Which would require a high pain tolerance, since those berries are being smashed.
Screw Grip Hand Spring
The only real problem that has been thrown around is all the alcohol flying in the air. You wouldn't be spilling that much booze since it'll get the pole slippery, which would lead to injuries.
But hey, aside that from that, Yuri!!! on Ice seems to even portray pole dancing right.
I love all things that are cute, magic-based, and easy going! My biggest obsessions of all time are Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches and Fairy Tail. Let's go shipping!
