I can smell the fujoshi from here...
What, it's about guys? Okay, I'm out
Now that you mention it, isn't Kubo an ice skating otaku?
If the characters are good, I think this could do really well!
I hope they hire good seiyuu!! I'll watch it!
Male figure skaters? Make the main character a cute girl and I might be interested!
This. Sounds. Amazing!! You can never have too many sports anime!
