Gotta milk every dollar out of fujoshis. I predict these will sell like hotcakes just like the discs.

The entire show was obviously a cynical cash grab. Underneath the obvious fujo appeal, it's just another run of the mill sports show with decent to average animation.

Oh my God I can actually see the pre-orders happening.

I think it's obligatory that there will be one for Victor too.

Well, it's a good thing fujoshis have you to look out for them and tell them when they're being taken advantage of. Your altruistic concern is duly noted.

Victor needs like 20 of them. One can never have too many pillows of the sexy katsudon. Very Happy

I can already see the headlines: ANN: "Fans enraged by Yuuri Katsuki hug pillow selling out in 0.1 seconds"
Forbes: "Victor Nikiforov's bank account mysteriously down by 1,000,000,000 yen"

the fuyoshi experience: you can hug him as tightly as you want, but he will never love you.

Ugh No fair...but I can't buy this type of merchandise until I get my own apartment.

Still, I wonder if the flip side will be a more...vulnerable Yuuri or a more sensual one. I wish Seung Gil or Phichit were more popular since I would love more merch of them.

Meanwhile in St.Petersburg, a sexy Russian spy mysteriously hijacks all of the Yuuri Katsuki pillow from the warehouse and leaves a thank you note on a poodle stationary.

Hold your horses not just the fujos but we the lgbt weebs supports this muztapiz just like how we support When Marnie was Lesbian. Mila X Sara ftw. ntm YOI result's better than the Yashiro winning the best villain of the year.

My wallet is ready, but I'm really going to need them as a set.

Do the same commenters that come here bashing fujoshi for the body pillow also do this in the treads dedicated to body pillows of female characters? Very curious about that.

Anyway, I typically don't want body pillows, but. . . I have a need for this. I'll probably only want Katsuki Yuri's, too. Victor is sexy, but not really my type. And I just feel like hugging Yuri, he could relate when it comes to anxiety and that would be more comforting. >u< ^u^;
