    Here we have another case of someone working to help better the other. Victor wants Yuri to succeed, but isn't entirely sure how as Yuri is a bundle of nerves and anxiety, and the pressure of performing is great but he wants to win and that pushes him to strive and be better. Through the struggle of figuring out how to help Yuri, and them working together, they do develop feelings and the whole thing develops rather easily.

    This anime was such a pleasant surprise for me, as I knew what it would include when I started it, but I didn't expect it to feel so genuine and easy with them. Heck, Yuri worked up the confidence to put a ring on it!

    And come on, the ship is named Victuri. That's pretty awesome.

    Look at the transition we see in Yuri and how he builds confidence through his achievements and Victor.

    There’s many types of love in this series. Some are more traditional crushes, some are twisted, some are batshit crazy, and some are pairings that people love because these characters hate each other therefore they’re down to bang. There’s many pairings of love and romance in this series, but to me the one that stands out the most?

    Celty and Shinra.

    This is an odd pair that started out as a one sided crush from Shinra with his fascination and curiosity with this strange headless Dullahan. But as time grew on, his obsession proved to be less scientific and morbid, but more romantic in nature. Genuine romance. And Celty with her time spent living with him and spending time with him and other humans in general, grows to return his feelings.

    There’s something about the way these two are written. Ryogo Narita seems to actually write some very fascinating romances and this to me is one of his most compelling. They are so charming together and their chemistry is great. For someone who can only speak through text Celty has a lot to say and express. Her moments of frustration, vulnerability, and cuteness are seen and appreciated by Shinra when many others would be horrified by Celty being a headless monster, when he sees her as a beautiful woman. And it’s not like Celty’s not tough, by all means she is the far more capable and strong creature who can take on gangs and ride in the streets, meet people and become a person of her own will. But the two of them together creates what may be some of my absolute favorite parts of the series in general. They are equally strong characters on their own, but like any true pair they compliment each other so well and legitimately compliment, and even complete one another. They care, they fight, they joke, they flirt, they share, and they quite literally love one another in a way that I absolutely adore and appreciate their strange love turned out to be one of my absolute favorite pairs in all of anime.
