Acclaimed figure skating anime Yuri!!! On Ice is to get a UK home video release next month, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced. The distributer says that a DVD and Blu-ray combo edition of the 12-episode series is due to hit stores on 24 September.

The fan fave series from studio MAPPA (Kids on the Slope, Punch Line) follows 23-year-old Japanese skater Yuri Katsuki (voiced by Toshiyuki Toyonaga), who is ready to hang up his skates after suffering a crushing defeat at the Grand Prix Final. However, he decides to give the sport one more try when his idol, five-time champ Victor Nikiforov (Junichi Suwabe), offers to be his coach. Meanwhile, another Yuri – teenage Russian phenom Yuri Plisetsky (Kōki Uchiyama) – also travels to Japan to be coached by the talented Nikiforov.

Directed by Sayo Yamamoto (Michiko & Hatchin, Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine) and featuring choreography by former professional figure skater Kenji Miyamoto, Yuri!!! On Ice has received a slew of accolades for its figure skating action and handling of the relationship between Yuri K. and Victor. Fans include a number of professional figure skaters, with former US national champion Johnny Weir an avid viewer and several skaters at the 2018 Winter Olympics performing to music from the show.

According to Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, extras on the upcoming Yuri!!! On Ice release will include the Yuri Plisetsky GPF in Barcelona EX – Welcome to the Madness OVA.
