Junichi Suwabe, the voice actor for Victor Nikiforov in Yuri on Ice, expressed sadness about the anime movie being canceled. He mentioned the disappointment felt by fans worldwide who were eagerly awaiting it. Suwabe hopes that someday, Victor and his friends’ story will be told again in some way. In the meantime, he plans to rewatch the TV series, cherishing the memories it brings.

Kazuma Kudo, who sang “Aria (Stammi Vicino, Non Te Ne Andare)” in the anime, also shared his thoughts online. He expressed regret over the movie’s discontinuation but believes in the genuine love shown by the production team and fans. Kudo intends to revisit the main story from the beginning as a way to honor the dedication put into the series.

The Yuri!!! On Ice

From October 6, 2016, to December 21, 2016, the Yuri on Ice anime TV show gained popularity for its story about Yuri Katsuki, a 23-year-old figure skater who finds inspiration from his idol, Russian champion Victor Nikiforov. It was also praised for its representation of romance between the two male leads by the LGBTQ+ community. This series helped make studio MAPPA well-known before Jujutsu Kaisen or Attack on Titan.

Despite its success, the lack of updates about the Yuri On Ice movie, announced seven years ago, has led to a decline in its fanbase. However, the remaining fans have been vocal about wanting information from MAPPA. Although the official cancellation notice didn’t give a specific reason, MAPPA’s CEO mentioned in 2023 that the anime series didn’t bring in much profit for the studio.
