Yuri!!! On Ice

80b19ac98ff9c1e152cc788593e611b21475688870_fullYuri Katsuki (CV: Toshiyuki Toyonaga) is a figure skater who just did awfully during the Grand Prix. Rumours has it he’s going to retire, and Yuri himself is too depressed to continue for a while. He had been practicing in the States, but eventually returns home.

Batch #1

Batch posts are (mostly) early impressions on shows I dropped along the way over the season. Most shows which I stop watching are dropped within the 3 first episodes or I watch through it, but there are times I drop them further in (usually longer shows).

Step-siblings (older male, younger female) alone in a house (well, will be – parents are leaving for India)
Chasity-belt
Ghost masturbating while possessing girl
