I had no idea a Yuri on Ice movie was even being developed, god damn. Massive shame, I'm not the biggest fan of the show but it was super charming and put MAPPA on the... well, map. Would have been fun, really sad we won't get this.

I think most diehard YoI fans already knew this, deep down. It's kinda rare to get a straightforward cancellation notice, I guess Ohtsuka got fed up of people asking about one of the shows that made his studio massively successful.

It's probably not gonna happen but I hope we get some staff insider to reveal what in the world happened in that production, because I can not fathom having a golden egg goose and then putting it in a freezer to die. It's also probably not gonna happen but with this door officially closed i wonder if maybe a couple of years from now, a different production committe will try to revive this franchise. Maybe for the 10th anniversary, which is, horrifyingly, only two years away.

If nothing else, I hope Sayo Yamamoto is now free to work in other projects. It's kind of criminal that she's been chained down to whatever was happening in that studio for almost 8 years

I can't imagine how or why you fumble the IP that definitively put your production studio on the map(pa) but either way it's several different kinds of sad. If Ohtsuka is satisfied with pissing away a ton of time and money, good on him i guess

but by god, thank god we got Bucchigiri?!

YOI was such a special show for a lot of fans when it came and touched a lot of lives. I honestly would have been fine without a sequel but it's frustrating it took them this long to announce what we already knew. I also hope Sayo can work on something else now and her talents were wasted at MAPPA and I'll still follow whatever she works on next.

Just seeing the top banner without reading title of the news is already clear. Like all the other comments, it was going to happen but still.

Sucks, I would have liked more long-haired Victor, but are we really surprised?
I expected this since the radio silence after the last announcement.

YOI is one of the best selling anime shows in the history of Japanese anime. This movie would have made millions.

Any other studio would have gone straight to releasing season 2 or a movie ASAP but Mappa had to fumble the bag.

Wow. I'm speechless.

Well it was only a matter of time considering it's been radio silence for 7 years outside of the occasional "we're still working on it, we swear!"

Hopefully that means Sayo Yamamoto can work on another project now

MAPPA president Otsuka said that the money the studio earned was tiny compared to the money Yuri earned. At the time, MAPPA was a small company and could not make much of an investment.
If that is the case, it may be inevitable. Well, this is just a guess.

If I had to guess, animation producer Fuko Noda's departure from MAPPA, confirmed just last week, would have to be related to this.

Hard co-sign on every other part of your message. I hope we can see Sayo Yamamoto's work again.

I'm mostly under the impression it was a case of just poor timing all around. Mappa was still pretty new as a studio when YoI hit big and probably bit off a bit too much accepting new contracts and projects in the aftermath.

Just as they were ironing out a way to balance so many projects and maybe planned to do their YoI fans a good turn for a movie (I suspect the initial delay was in good faith at the time), the pandemic hit in that crucial follow up year. Resources probably had to be relocated to the TV projects to keep the business afloat and viable. Remember: theaters were closed for much of 2020, so probably not as desirable to work on a movie with an uncertain release window that year when Netflix is wanting to throw money at you for a more certain streaming release.

Jujutsu Kaisen, Attack on Titan Final, and Dorohedoro were also all pretty high profile projects that they delivered circa 2020. The manpower bandwidth was probably just all used up, and they couldn't find a way to shuffle work back to the YoI movie with crunch issues. Then staff was already spread across different projects and it was a pain to get the appropriate people together after so much time had passed. It's boring and sad, but probably just a calendar casualty of scheduling.
