Eighteen and fresh out of Juniors, Katsuki Yuuri finds himself travelling to Detroit to train with the world-renowned ice skating coach Celestino Cialdini. Meanwhile, Josef Karpisek retires earlier than anyone expected, leading Christophe Giacometti to Celestino’s door as a full-time student. And then the story begins.
Christophe joins Yuuri in Detroit from the beginning, and leads Yuuri down a six-year-long path of self-discovery.
“I want to be a dragon rider,” Yuuri whispered, and his voice was lost in the dragons’ wind-wake that tore leaves from the early-autumn trees and pulled at the clothes of the villagers around him. “I want to be like you, Viktor.”
In which Vicchan is a dragon, Yuuri is his dragon rider, and Yuuri's childhood hero Viktor Nikiforov somehow becomes his mentor.
