posted on by Amanda Whalen
Sayo Yamamoto's hit anime Yuri!!! on Ice is getting its own "Grandpa's special flavor" katsudon pirozhki plush pouch.
A pirozhki is a traditional Eastern European bread that is stuffed with toppings and then fried or baked. Yuri Plisetsky's grandfather, Nikolai Plisetsky, makes him a bag of katsudon pirozhki in episode nine of the anime. Yuri eats one and then gives the rest to character Yūri Katsuki as an early birthday present, since pork katsudon is his favorite food.
The plush pouch is 16cm wide and features an illustration of Yuri Plisetsky on the tag. It is priced at 2160 yen (USD $19).
Yuri!!! on Ice, which follows figure-skaters Yuri Plisetsky, Victor Nikiforov, and Yūri Katsuki, aired in fall 2016, with a total of 12 episodes. It won the Television Animation Division award and was also voted Animation of the Year at the Tokyo Anime Award Festival in February 2017.
