The sixth DVD volume sold 18,283 copies and also ranked #1 in the animation chart and #2 in the overall chart for the week.

The sixth DVD and Blu-ray Disc volumes contain the "Welcome to The Madness" bonus exhibition video that focuses on the character Yuri Plisetsky. It also includes a Yuri!!! on Ice Coloring Book and exclusive booklet. The bonus extras will include Stéphane Lambiel's dialogue recording session video for the finale, audio commentaries for the finale (by Kouki Uchiyama, Toshiyuki Toyonaga, and Kubo), a figure skating choreography video by choreographer Kenji Miyamoto, and the clean opening animation video for episode 11.

The anime premiered in Japan in October, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Funimation also streamed an English broadcast dub. A new film for the franchise has been green-lit.
