    While I admire Akiko for all she's been through and accomplished this season, I wonder if her skate today really deserved those points... I feel like her artistry/PCS is not as developed... but still happy she did well.

    I would guess Akiko. If it had been the other way round (Nakano ahead of Akiko), they would have a problem.

    Akiko has had a better GP season and even won the GPF bronze. I can't see how the JSF can justify sending Nakano instead.

    WELL DONE AKIKO!!

    A bit sad for Nakano. I don't think she'll hang around for 2014.

    Either way, I'm glad to see Mao skate well since I do like her skating quite a bit. But I don't care for Mao-bots. :-)
    you do know that the loop and the toe are the only choices to add to a 3/2 combination right? and who exactly are these Mao-bots? and how different are they from the Kim-bots who think that Yu-na is supeior in every way.

    Yeah, I think she turns 29 this week.

    I am sorry but this score is hugely inflated. I just watched Mao, she was good, but seriously, a 135
    for a program with 5 triples, and not one of them a triple lutz? She's never going to get that score internationally, considering last year at worlds she got a 122 for her FS with the 3a-2t. And Yukari scoring almost 200?

    I really hope Akiko does well! I really want her to get that Olympics sport! How come her scores aren't up?

    That's interesting - because I find Akiko's musicality and steps on a whole different level from Miki and Yukari. So much more enjoyable to watch her perform

    But we hear she is going to retire after this season is over...

    Exactly what I was afraid of.

    This is a MOMENTOUS and INCREDIBLE night filled with AMAZING skates for some of these ladies, so let's not ruin it for them with discussion over a skater that wasn't even there.

    Thanks. :D

    Is Akiko 2nd overall or only 2nd in LP?
