Y – Yuri!!! on Ice

Yuri!!! On Ice is a relatively new anime that honestly took the fandom world by storm. Not only did the cast of characters enchant, but the story of a socially awkward athlete with self-esteem issues really caught on. Yuuri, the main character, has to find his footing again in the world of competitive ice skating.

Why I recommend it for Writers: The series is great for seeing a well-done characterization of someone with self-image issues, who happens to be an unreliable narrator. Not only that, but the main romance is subtle and has a well-defined twist that makes it all the more hilariously sweet. This series is also written by Mitsurou Kubo, who is a phenomenal writer.

Warnings: There is nudity, but nothing frontal.
