Skate 1 - Easy as Pirozhki!! The Grand Prix Final of Tears

Takeshi first appears during a flashback to Yuuri Katsuki's childhood, where he teased Yuuri about his weight, though Yuuko was quick to tell him off for his bullying behavior. He often spent time with Yuuri and Yuuko while growing up, though he did not seem to share their interest in Victor Nikiforov.

In the present day, Takeshi appears after Yuuri has skated Victor's Stay Close to Me program for Yuuko at Ice Castle, saying that his triplet daughters are big fans of Yuuri and welcoming him home. He teases Yuuri about his weight again, but this time he does so in a more joking way.

Later, Takeshi calls Yuuri to tell him that the triplets have uploaded a video of Yuuri skating Victor's program to the internet, which has now gone viral, and he apologizes for the triplets' behavior.
