    Amazing! Of course I can understand Japanese, it is sometimes tough for me to read BB in English, especially some buzzwords. I'm here always with on-line dictionary. It takes me time anyway.
    So, I really really admire your linguistic ability!!! I would be very happy if I could be of some help.

    I'm always excited reading enthusiastic comments from all corners of the world about Yuzuru. He is one of new-type Japanese boys, I believe. You know, Japanese boys are believed to be too shy to express themselves. These days, it is said that Japanese boy skaters have the ability to deliver more than girl skaters. Thanks to Daisuke Takahashi. He is a pioneer.

    Now people are talking about very talented young athletes, baseball players, swimmers, etc. all born in 1994 in Japan including Yuzu and Kanako Murakami. Yuzu is one the golden geniuses!!

    94年会

    As future of Japanese Figure Skating, it really does make sense that Yuzu is a member of Golden Club 94.

    One yeah ago some people also kept assuring everyone with "please, wait." The rest and the result you know.


    Yuzu wasn't assigned to JO. This yeah too, but this time as a current NC.

    Part 4 of 'My Olympic': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cCVY6c6yeM

    20/06

    Shizuka: Up until now, among male athletes who have made it to the top, there are names such as Daisuke Takahashi and Takahiko Kozuka, but...
    Yuzu: Yes
    Shizuka: There's never been one who made rapid strides, immediately winning medals right after transitioning from Junior to Senior level, and now I'm witnessing this extremely unexpected growth up close. Do you feel that competing at the top level gives you a sense of happiness or does it put a certain amount of pressure on you?
    Yuzu: Most of the time, the sense of happiness is stronger I think.
    Shizuka: I see
    Yuzu: Even long before Salt Lake Olympics, I'd always thought that I wanted to appear in competitions like the ones I watched on TV, the ones that I do now, to win medals, and to stand at the very top. So, I really think that the feeling of happiness is stronger.
    Shizuka: Well, even before you stood at the zenith of Japan, you'd already acquired medals from international competitions.
    Yuzu: *laughs* well, yes, but rather than winning at the GP Series or Four Continents, it's considerably difficult to win at All Japan Championships. Well, um, it's hard to comment on it *laughs*, but really, it's.. emotion-inducing.

    Happiness is stronger than pressure.

    It is very Yuzuru.

    Oh yes! Time to wake up!

    Yuzu talked about his new season programs in My Olympic!!

    He will perform new FREE PROGRAM in DOI ice show, held on 28th,29th,30th June, only one week left. The new FS music choice is still a secret but the characteristic of new FS music as containing a strong storyline which could make him easily to put his emotion in has been confirmed. About SHORT PROGRAM, it's just lack of time to complete it.

    The greatest thing is DOI will be broadcasted by Fuji Television Network on 7th July, which means we all could see the new FS in two weeks. Party on!

    Thanks wxunxx for the fast update! Translation of today's show:

    Audio Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrtTLpJ3twg

    21/06

    Shizuka: Finally, we're approaching the Olympic season
    Yuzu: Yes
    Shizuka: What kind of programs have you prepared?
    Yuzu: Well, It's still a secret
    Shizuka: It's still a secret?! You made them already?
    Yuzu: We haven't worked on the short. We didn't have the time, so we haven't made it, but the free is already done
    Shizuka: It's done? I'm looking forward to its demonstration
    Yuzu: Yes
    Shizuka: When are you going to present the first demonstration to us?
    Yuzu: For the time being, I plan to reveal the program in June.
    Shizuka: At an ice show?
    Yuzu: Yes
    Shizuka: Oh, that's something we need to keep an eye out for
    Yuzu: Yes *laughs* But firstly, I have to make sure to bring it to perfection before then
    Shizuka: With regards to the free program, the completed free program...
    Yuzu: Yes
    Shizuka: What do you think we need to pay attention to?
    Yuzu: Well, it's a program overflowing with storyline. It's one of the aspects I'd like you to pay attention to carefully. Also, the music is one I can easily get into, emotionally. This time, the theme is already decided.
    Shizuka: I see
    Yuzu: Since it's emotionally-involving, I'd be more than happy if you can take a good look at it.
    Shizuka: Really, since free program will be the last showdown, you need to fight it out
    Yuzu: Well, yes
    Shizuka: It's really important. So, it's a good thing to start skating to it from its early stage of development while getting ready for the Olympics.
    Yuzu: Yes, I will do my best.

    Another thing, FaOI will be aired on 14/07, 19:00 - 21:00 JST, on TV Asahi's news and sports satellite channel, CS Channel 2. They will broadcast the 06/07 show.
    http://bangumi.skyperfectv.co.jp/SD/...13+in+Fukuoka/
    Yuzu will be performing two programs, one in collaboration with AI, the Japanese-American singer who's invited to guest on the show, according to a Fukuoka's local news program.

    https://twitter.com/Chiyochiyoyo/sta...29412829700097
    We might also get to see a sneak preview of FaOI two days prior to the TV Asahi broadcast which will be aired on 12/07 from 10:40 to 11:40 JST by a local broadcasting station.

    wxunxx and zydeco88, as always, thank you guys for keeping us updated about Yuzuru during off-season. I'm so glad that his new program allows him to be emotionally involved. I'm so excited and can't wait to see it!
