    • Yu-Na showed absolute stability
    • Nobunari landed 4-3-3
    • Daisuke landed quad
    • Akiko was doing well

    Wow! Oda is really going to be the top contender if he keeps it up.

    That was just amazing. He made it look effortless. Imagine if he does that in. Compettion? Look out plush you are no longer the quad king.

    Saw Asahi TV report today.

    Oda looked perfect during practice. Yuna looked stable & Miki looked good. Almost no coverage of Akiko -- she was mentioned but they didn't show her jumps, etc.

    That's not nice. Akiko is my favorite among Japanese skaters.

    Wow, that looked awesome... he could definitely win OGM if he hits that combo like that.

    Also about Akiko, maybe she's not a favorite of the Japanese media. Or it might just be that they see Ando having a better chance than Akiko.

    I know. I was mad too.

    But from what little I saw of her...Akiko seemed very happy about competing in the final and she smiled a lot. Most of the coverage was on Oda & Ando. No pairs or dance team mentioned.

    Nice pictures, Yu Na, Akiko, and Miki look so skinny in their practice clothes. It's amazing that they are so strong while being so tiny

    Another clip with Nobu:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Nfolq75uWk
    It contains the same 4-3-3 as in the previous clip, another 4-3-3 with even more perfect landing and just enormous 3A-3T-3L! Look at the distance of that 3A - it covered the entire lenght of the huge camera pit in the background!

    OTOH, I'm a bit afraid that the pressure might be too much for Nobu... Akiko and Daisuke might be in more comfortable position being in the shadow and relatively unbothered by the media. They can just concentrate on doing their best.
