A show worthy of attention, as a lot of skaters will debut their new (gala) programs.
News articles and photos:
Miki looks amazing. Nobu's costume looks great as well! I wonder if it's a new Gala outfit, or did he borrow it from some other skater..? ETA: He appeared in this costume only during the opening of the show. The real Gala costume is even more worthy of attention.
Short notes about the performances:
Miki - intense steps and beautiful movements,
Nobu - landed triple axel and 3 triple jumps, comical program that made the audience enthusiastic,
Fumie - fell on 3F, the program had a mature atmosphere,
Akiko - kept making mistakes on jumps, but her skating was beautiful,
Yukari - landed 3-2-2
