It’s the day for presents and family gatherings. Merry Christmas! But it’s also the birthday of a very special anime character….
HAPPY BIRTHDAY VIKTOR NIKIFOROV!!!
Since it’s such a celebratory event, I’ve decided to share with you all a few fun facts (from Wikia) about our favorite Russian skater.
1. His English voice actor also voiced Russia from Hetalia, who also speaks with a Russian accent.
2. According to an interview with Kubo, the appearance of Viktor is based on the American actor and director, John Cameron Mitchell.
3. He has custom skates with gold blades and the Russian flag on the heels of his boots.
4. His favorite Japanese dish is katsudon (pork cutlet bowl), which he was introduced to by Yuuri.
5. His Instagram account is v-nikiforov
