Yuuri Katsuki, previously Japan’s most promising figure skater, returns to his family home in the wake of his devastating defeat at the Grand Prix Finale to consider his alternatives. Yuuri’s window of opportunity for skating success is rapidly closing as he approaches age 23, and his penchant for pork cutlets and a natural propensity to put on weight are not helping.

A video of Yuuri imitating a move by five-time world champion Victor Nikiforov goes viral, however, thrusting him into the limelight. Victor even shows up at Yuuri’s house out of the blue and offers to be his guide. Yuuri, being one of his greatest supporters, accepts with enthusiasm and thus begins his quest to once again take center stage. But the Russian prodigy Yuri Plisetsky is dead focused on beating Yuuri and regaining Victor’s tutelage, so the rivalry is heated.
