I haven’t watched a whole lot of sports anime, but I have watched Hikaru no Go, and I wonder if Yuri!!! On Ice is trying to subvert the idea of ~ the eternal rival~

 

also a lot of talk about Free! for the sake of comparison )

Free! has a really banal plot: will swimming prodigy Rin make up with his childhood friends? There's only one possible ending to a story like that.

This also left it wide open for a sequel, because sure, why not make another twelve episodes about dreams and friendship and handsome boys who spend 60% of their screentime in skintight swimsuits? It's not like it was the clever plot that made people watch the first season either.

Let's talk about the failures and successes of that ambition, at absurd length )
