Ladies' LP protocols aren't working for me.
I feel bad for yuna because every time she gets high score, people think that there is something behind her score or something... Even though yuna missed a combo, remember that she gets extra points for almost every single
jump she does. She is probably the only female skater she receives goe for complete rotation and also her incredible speed. Even Japanese commentators and experts have said that Mao must train to gain more speed in her program if she wants to beat yuna.
We will see the protocol to figure out where yuna collected extra points, but
I don't think there's any thing behind why yuna received this score... Her program was really packed with difficult choreography, and it was beautifully presented.
I'm very disappointed by Yu-na's program this year. Her score was inflated! I know that her 3Lz combo is beautiful, but her other elements are just plain mediocre. Look at her layback. Her toe was pointed down, there was no attitude position, and it's slow. There is nothing unique about her spins. Her spiral sequence is nothing spectacular. I don't see any flexibility in her positions that would deserve any plus GOEs. Also, I've noticed that she always puts the same jumps in her program.
Yu-na is a wonderful skater, but I REALLY don't think that she deserves all the hype that she is getting at all. A beautiful flip and lutz is not everything in skating.
All of her elements need improvement.
I feel that her music and dress this year are very plain and flat.
She acts very arrogant outside of the rink, and I know that many will disagree, but this is my true and honest opinion.
Go Rachel, Go Alissa, Go Caroline, Go Mirai!
I think we're all so used to some melodrama and climaxing when it comes to Yuna's programs that when she goes for understatement it throws us off. What I found problematic often last season was that I grew tired of her programs a little early, like the catchy song you hum for a few weeks then don't listen to any more - but I don't think that'll happen this season. While she gave us plenty of fun in the Bond program, this LP is more modest yet interesting, I think it's going to grow on me as the season develops.
Okay, that was my two cents on the LP itself.
As for the score...WHAT??!!!
She completely missed a 3F and she still beats her own best score? (though all her other jumps, as far as I could see, were pretty perfect and her combos were exquisite - she's putting 'tanos into them as well I see )
Though come to think of it, she popped a 3S pretty badly at Worlds when she set the world record, so...
It'll be interesting to see what a clean LP will get
Also GOE are the other half i have to agree i can find a reason to give all her elements +2Goe cant say the same for Mao or Yukari with he wrap
Considering she always missed her loop and messed up on her salcow ; This is the cleanest I have seen Yuna skate her long program even with out the triple flip.
But the program musically is a bore.
I really loved Yuna's LP. I think it's better than her previous LP. You just have to see it closer, it's really stunning.
Last Worlds she got an outstanding score without 2 elements (previously I wrote jumps; sorry, my nerves), so now without just one jump it's logic for her to have even more points.

How the heck is anyone going to beat a score like that?
wow... what do you know about her? Really hate to see such biased opinions.She acts very arrogant outside of the rink, and I know that many will disagree, but this is my true and honest opinion.
