Yuri!!! on ICE  
 Yuri!! on ICE is a sports anime television series about figure skating. The anime was produced by MAPPA, directed by Sayo Yamamoto and written by Mitsurō Kubo. Character design was by Tadashi Hiramatsu, and its music was composed by Taro Umebayashi and Taku Matsushiba. The figure skating was choreographed by Kenji Miyamoto, who also performed routines himself which were recorded and used as skating sound effects. The series premiered on October 6, 2016 and ended on December 22, with a total of 12 episodes. A Yuri on Ice feature film is currently in production. The series revolves around the relationships between Japanese figure skater Yuri Katsuki; his idol, Russian figure-skating champion Victor Nikiforov, and up-and-coming Russian skater Yuri Plisetsky; as Yuri K. and Yuri P. take part in the Figure Skating Grand Prix, with Victor acting as coach to Yuri K.
Released to critical acclaim, Yuri on Ice has been well received in Japan. It won three awards at the Tokyo Anime Award Festival, a Japan Character Award and seven awards in Crunchyroll's inaugural Anime Awards. In Japan, the series was released in six parts on Blu-Ray and DVD, with all the releases coming No. 1 on the Oricon Animation Blu-Ray disc and Animation DVD disc rankings respectively. It was the second-most successful media franchise in Japan for the first half of 2017. It was popular on social media outlets such as Tumblr, Sina Weibo and Twitter, where it received over a million more tweets that the next most-talked about anime series in the season it was broadcast. It also attracted praise from professional figure skaters.
Yuri on Ice has raised discussion concerning its depiction of a same-sex relationship between its protagonists, with some critics praising it for covering homosexuality in a way that differs from most anime and manga such as yaoi, and for dealing with homosexuality in a country and sport that has present-day issues with homophobia; others criticised its depiction for being unrealistic and ambiguous. The series has also been praised for its depiction of anxiety, and also raised a brief controversy concerning a similar figure skating-based title to be released in the United States in 2017.

Yūri Katsuki carried all of Japan's hopes on his shoulders to win at the Gran Prix Finale ice skating competition, but suffered a crushing defeat. He returns home to Kyushu and half feels like he wants to retire, and half feels like he wants to continue ice skating. Suddenly the five-time consecutive world championship ice skater Victor Nikiforov appears before him with Yuri Plisetsky, a young Russian figure skater who is already defeating his seniors. Victor and both Yuris take up the challenge on an unprecedented Gran Prix series.

I usually don't watch "new" animes. I wait to watch them a bit bc of the unbearable and ridiculous fandom girls u.u'
But I decided to watch YOI bc of a friend. I like sports anime and I knew YOI would be funny and amazing... and it really was :D
The anime is great. The story and the charas are interesting. The animation is very nice. Sometimes the charas looked a bit weird though ^^'
The anime has really funny parts and the romance thing between Viktor and Yuri was awesomeeeee xD
The best part in the anime was when Yuri buy matching rings for him and Viktor. Then they go to a restaurant and Phichit sees the rings. It was LOOOL


My favorite charas: Viktor, Phichit, Yurio and Otabek.
Least favorite charas: JJ and Yuri

Haruka moves on to Iwatobi Middle School with Makoto and starts a new life. Both enter the swim team, and plan to compete in the medley relay together with Asahi Shiina and Ikuya Kirishima.

Sangatsu no Lion  
Sangatsu no Lion is an ongoing manga series by Chica Umino, best known for Honey and Clover. It began serialization in Hakusensha's seinen manga magazine Young Animal from its fourteenth issue in 2007 (published on July 13, 2007).
Hakusensha aired a television commercial announcing the series on numerous Japanese television stations, also posting it on its official website. Twelve tankōbon volumes of the series have been released as of January 2017. An anime television adaptation by Shaft aired between October 8, 2016 and March 18, 2017 on NHK, with a second season scheduled to premiere in October 2017. A two-part live action film adaptation of the same name is scheduled for release in March and April 2017.
The series is set in Tokyo, following the everyday life of a 17-year-old shōgi player, Rei (lit. "Zero"). Umino based the setting of Sangatsu no Lion on research she conducted herself, whereas she was already familiar with the setting for her earlier work, Honey and Clover.

The protagonist Rei is a 17-year old professional shōgi player, who lives by himself, not having a real family, and has scarcely any friends. Among his acquaintances is a family, which consists of a young woman, Akari, and two young girls, Hinata and Momo, and who also keep a numerous number of cats

Sangatsu no Lion is an anime with 22 eps. and I'm surprised that I finished watching it less then 3 weeks xD
The anime is nice, has a deep feeling sometimes, talks about friendship and the charas are very nice too.
Especially the cast. Loved the seiyuus they chose to be in this anime <3
Well, the anime is also about shougi, so if you don't like shougi then it's not an anime for you ^^''
I don't mind bc I like to play chess xD
If you don't mind it then I recommend :)

My favorite charas were Momo(she's so cuteeeeee) and Smith-san(Sugitan voiced him).


 
There'll be a 2nd season and I'm gonna watch it o/
