Yuri!!! On Ice has already proven itself to be an extremely popular anime in this current season. The popularity of the show is being pushed along by the large female viewership and yes, there are quite a few males who love the adeventures of the figure skating world.
WOW Japan recently went through the effort of compiling a list of locales seen in the anime and comparing them to the real world with the help of Google Maps. The level of detail seen in the anime is astonishing.
The following pic are showing the train station Karatsu Station or as they call it in the anime, Hasetsu Station.
Another area that’s seen in Yuri!!! is the Yoyogi National Gymnasium.
Karatsu Castle and Takashima Island are also featured in the show.
I’m always blown away by the level of detail and realism that brought into a lot of anime. It’s so cool when they do this then you can go and visit those areas yourself and feel like you’re stepping into the anime world 🙂
