Fans are patiently waiting for "Yuri!!! On Ice" season 2 and its creator, Mitsurō Kubo remains tight-lipped about its release date. There were speculations that the next installment is no longer possible following the announcement that the anime series is getting a movie adaptation. However, there was already a new visual that was released for the anime's event in April, which prompts fans to believe that the second installment is coming anytime soon. There was also a bonus exhibition video for the anime's Blu-ray/DVD disc but the latest cameo appearance of the anime's characters in "Steven Universe" comic is a kick ass.

According to Comic Book, the infamous characters of "Yuri!!! On Ice" such as Yuri, Victor, Yuri Plisetsky and Atabek Alitin made cameo appearances in the latest "Steven Universe" comic issue #4. It turned out that the comic's illustrator, Katy Farina is a huge fan of the anime series and said that she finds it fun and cute to draw, so people reading would find it more interesting.

The "Steven Universe" comic illustrator went on to say that "Yuri!!! On Ice" inspired her to work harder. "When it was airing I was feeling so discouraged and unmotivated," Farina explained. "Watching Yuri work hard and learn to find confidence in himself inspired me to do the same. I think a lot of people can relate to that."

Meanwhile, CrunchyRoll reports that the sixth and final Blu-ray of "Yuri!!! On Ice" sold a whooping 45,000 units during its first week. It's the first time for the anime series to exceed its mark of 40,000 in the first week. The DVD volume also sold a highest 18,000 units in its first week.

According to one of its creative team members, "Yuri!!! On Ice" season 2 release would be anytime soon. Thus, it ruled out some of the speculations among fans that there may never be a second installment of the sports anime series. Nonetheless, fans can content themselves for now with these theories until the next installment is officially announced.
