    Do you think it's a plot to make her a Japanese citizen?

    I think they're definitely very into her. Could be, I don't know. Interesting and very clever way to do it if it is.

    Mirai already has Japanese citizenship, she is a dual citizen.of the U.S. and Japan. I think what you guys are trying to get @ is if she'll be an athlete that officially represents Japan. I think she has a better chance of being a top tier skater in the U.S.

    While the ladies in Japan are quite deep, they had a very disappointing Junior Worlds. I think with none in the top 10 they will only have 1 spot at Junior Worlds next season. And on the senior side, there are quite a few veterans who seem like perennials. That said, Mirai does seem to fit into an age gap that could make her an attractive choice for Team Japan. Bottom line though, as a recent US champion, I think it would be very unlikely the US would release her.

    She is adorable. Hope she has fun with this opportunity.
