    Yuzu sent the bouquet earlier this month when the cast was performing in Tokyo Theatre. Here's a bigger resolution of the picture from Notre Dame official Japanese twitter. Seems that the one who's assigned to perform the musicals in Japan is the Canadian cast. So he might've gotten the wind of the play from one of his Canadian acquaintances or have attended one of their plays before while in Canada to get some inspiration for his free. Whatever it is, it's really sweet and thoughtful of him to send the bouquet.

    Yes, they are still performing in Japan. Their last show will be somewhere in April, I believe.

    Congrats on your graduation, Yuzuru!
    (Hopefully there will be some media coverage on this tomorrow, just like what they did with Kanako)

    And a nice fan MV featuring adorable shots of Yuzu:

    Marker? For signing autographs?

    Hello! It's my 1st post in this forum but I read it for some times.

    I hesitated to write something here because I know that I won't certainly post so often, I have troubles to express my thoughts clearly in english.
    But finally I decided to show my support for Yuzuru even if it's just one post.

    I used to be one of those who criticised his changing location and coaching, but I felt worse than anything and thought it was useless to wish something we can't control.
    Yuzuru makes his own decisions and whatever they are, we can't prevent him for doing it. So we just have to accept it, if not, it's like banging your head against a wall, it hurts.
    wxunxx's 1st post made me realised this. And I feel better now, thinking that way.
    So like she/he said, let's trust Yuzuru and wait. And congratulation for his graduation! Party on!

    Welcome! I was like you too. I was not excited at all about his coach changing at first. But when I watched Yuzu's skating from Filandia Trophy, I noticed that something changed in his skating skill in a good way. And after reading and watching many interviews with Orser, I became convinced that the coach change was a good move for Yuzu. Building a stamina takes time. I believe that Yuzu will improve more in every aspect next season.

    Congratulations on Yuzu's graduation!

    Huh?

    Did Yuzu actually said that or it's some kind of misinterpretation? He shouldn't even consider 4S-3A or 3A-3A(-3A) in competitions, neither this season nor in the following. I know Orser always says Yuzu decided this, Yuzu decided that, but what the coach is for I wonder. No way I would believe that Orser doesn't know that to perform this stuff makes no sense under the current CoP. The 4S(or 4T)-3A and 3A-3A (or plus one more 3A) doesn't count as combo, i.e. 100% rewarded. It counts as sequence, i.e. the base value will be lesser than if he does 4S and 3A as separate jumps. Considering the risk of getting -GOE for such seq. it makes the idea to put them in competitions even more meaningless. He should resume his quad combo that he gave up thanks to Orser. The last tiime when I saw him live performing the quad combo was at PIW at a fan meeting after the show. He landed 4t and fell on the second jump. I though it's just summer. I didn't even consider that I won't see any quad combo from him in the coming season. But I was wrong.

    I highly doubt his CoP savvy team would incorporate that into his program, or at least I hope they should know better.
    I think the quad combo is more of a wow factor with the way CoP is structured now, well at least in the SP. For the short program at least, Hanyu's jump base value with the 4T, 3A(x), 3Lz-3T(x) is 30.76. If he went for 4T-3T, 3A(x), and 3Lz(x), his base value for jumps would be 30.35.
    I'd like to see him to a 4T-3T for the wow factor, but CoP thinking wise, it makes sense if he chooses to stick to the current layout. What would the math be like if he did the quad combo in the free? There would be a quite a few jump changes wouldn't there?

    This picture of Hanyu, Shouma, and Keiji is adorable. I think there is also a video somewhere of the duo lifting Shouma during jr. nationals.

    ^^ The part where it's said "we shouldn't expect him to perform them in real competitions, at least not this season" is not quoted, so I suppose it's Tatjana's personal interpretation based on her assessment of Yuzuru. However, he did say that it'll be difficult to include the sequences in competitive programs, whether it's because he doesn't think it's a good idea due to the point mark-down or because he's not confident to execute them well due to his current physical condition is not elaborated. Keep in mind that I'm basing all of these info on a Japanese translation of the original article as I'm not subscribed to IFS and don't have the copy of the magazine. So, we might have to wait until the article becomes directly accessible to us to get a more definitive idea of what's being implied.
    I don't necessarily think that it's a bad idea to perform these sequences in competitions, as they do carry the 'wow' factor that might encourage certain changes in the TES evaluation as they seem to be more difficult to perform (okay, may be a bit of wishful thinking on my part). But I don't think it's such a stretch to think that he, himself, might consider incorporating them in his competitive programs in the future. At least, that's what comes across my mind whenever I see him ambitiously trying to land them in various Gala Finales and ice shows.

    An article was published at sportsnavi blog, on 26th March
    http://www.plus-blog.sportsnavi.com/ajps/article/42

    Some valuable information released, I translated the major part of it due to lack of time.

    I sense the key of whole special training plan altered to deal with such difficult physical condition is to avoid Yuzuru's knee injury get worse.
    Based on recent injury information update, Yuzuru's suffered Jumper's knee, irresistible pain but no tendon rupture or ligament tear after MRI examination.

    The result told it all. I cannot imagine as if Yuzuru's injury was a torn ligament or tendon tear, each one takes at least one year to get a full recovery, which means basically his Sochi dream could end in fire.

    Again wish Yuzuru a speedy recovery.

    The practice was resumed four days before Yuzuru head to London, Ontario, In first of two days, Yuzuru only practice basic skating skills one hour each day. The left two days he focused on a run through, contributing to his stamina, no jump practice included. Switching to jump practicing part, triple loop, without drawing left foot to take off, is the only triple jump he executed in the practice, others went to double. Yuzuru started to try quad till he took Pain-Killer during official practice.

    It's a she.
    And I'm really glad the information I put out makes you walk through, actually that's the reason I came here.

    Thank you for the link! I didn't know his condition was that terrible. Nevertheless, he came in forth place in the competition. I believe Yuzu will be unbeatable when he can trust his body. I was concerned with so many things about Yuzu before (choreo, costume, coaching, media exposure, haters, etc.). Now, all I care about him is his health.

At least, that's what comes across my mind whenever I see him ambitiously trying to land them in various Gala Finales and ice shows.
    I have IFS magazine April issue (English) and this is what it says;

    Hanyu said he was initially nervous about including a quad Salchow in his free program because he felt it was hard to do in competition. But he is known for doing some crazy things on the ice, such as triple Axel-triple Axel sequence. "I can do three triple Axels in a row. I did a quad Salchow-triple Axel sequence in a show," he said with a smile.
    But don't expect him to attempt that in a competition, at least not this season. "It is too hard to do in the program."


    These sequences, of course, have a wow factor. But I don't think it's worth a try in the program in terms of points or stamina. Orser said that Yuzu will have three quads in his free next season. So I think that we will see a quad toe-triple toe combo in Yuzu's program. I hope he will keep his Triple Axel-triple toe combo. It's really a beauty.
