    And an adorable video of Yuzu and Kanko, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUV6yWtPkMg, thx furanolove, bringing us such a great video of two Japanese young skaters.

    Thanks for the video share! Love the two of them both and how they're like growing up together

    Congratulations in advance to Yuzuru and Kanako! I wish them all the best because it must be so hard to juggle competing and training etc with schoolwork, I really admire them

    Nice story.
    I saw him for the first time in the 2009 Junior World Championships. It was love at first sight. Has continued ever since.

    In 2010 I went to check junior worlds results, I was curious to see this little Yuzuru Hanyu. So I looked his SP first and I didn't like his style. But then I didn't want to stay with this 1st impression so I went to see his free. What surprised me was that he had 2 different styles of programs. But something disturbed me in his skating tough I couldn't figure out what. Right now it's a little fuzzy when I try to remember what I exactly felt.
    One thing was his overall attitude, I mean he had such an air of confidence at this early age, and I hated that though I didn't read any interviews, but to me his gaze was like saying that he was the best and that he would smash all of his seniors (in my head I was imagining such stupid things). I know it was totally unjustified, but at that time I was a massive Dai-fan and it bothered me to see this kid having this attitude of sureness.

    Then I saw 2010 4cc SP & LP. It left me cold but thought his jumps were huge. And still jealous that he was coming close to Dai in such a short time. Then I saw Romeo and Juliet The ice show. Still nothing. I wasn't move and was bothered by the fact that he was putting so much energy, but thought it was just pure show off. By this time, I totally invented his personality (proud, snooty, arrogant etc...) and was far from knowing the kind of person he was in reality.

    2011 cup of China I wanted him to lose, but something changed a little, during the FP. I was seeing it live, and I surprised myself by screaming "Oh no get up!" when he fell on his 3A-3T, same for his next fall. I felt a pinched in my heart when seeing his 4th place. I was disappointed, but still couldn't figure out what changed exactly.

    Then Cup of Russia was the revelation. It was my 3rd time seeing R&J, it left me cold, but not this time. Despite the mistakes, it was like I had been blind all this time. How did I miss this 3A out of a spread eagle? How did I miss those spins perfectly suited with the music? How did I miss that last footwork sequence full of passion? I don't know, I just spend my time replaying it again and again. Even his older programs. That's it.

    It's strange, because usually, it's always a "love at first sight" concerning skaters. I like them or not, but generally it doesn't change. Yuzuru is the exception. Thereafter, I figured out he was far from being this little pretentious kid I thought.
    I became a huge fan now, but like being a fan of Mao and Yuna, it' hard to be a Dai Yuzu fan as well because of stupid fans war and also because I want them both to do well.

    I hope I have been cleared, it's a little hard to express my thought easily in english. So I hope there won't be any misunderstandings.

    Nice story :D (It's so difficult ignoring Mao/Yuna/Dai/Yuzu bots on the net D: )

    The very first time I saw him was in this montage http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayLApCiEPPQ posted in 2007, but as if I recognized him xD I only recognized little Kana since she was always around Mao and I am a huge Mao fan :P The next time was when he won Jr Worlds and I was really impressed with his jumps (especially how he was able to save the second 3A in his FS). Then I kind of lost track of skating for a while after Olys but on my youtube homepage under suggestions was his 2012 Worlds FS so I figured I'd give it a watch and strangely I just thought, hmmm not bad. Then I watched the medal ceremony and saw how happy he was (and how fricken adorable he was), so I went back and watched his FS again, then again, and again and again, each time finding something new that I loved about that free-skate. So naturally this led to me watching his SP, which led to watching programs at previous events that season, then previous seasons, then finding that Jr Worlds FS again on youtube. To be honest I didn't recognize him from the 2012 Worlds FS but the Jr Worlds FS looked familiar so I scrolled through the comments and there was one I left 2 years earlier saying how impressed I was with him xD It took a while but I'm all caught up now

    This was a really long and pointless post - kudos if you read it and made to the end >_<

    That's not true. There is no stupid fans war in J-arenas. There are some poor people who can't figure out how to be a fan of Mao/Yuna or Dai/Plu/Yuzu/Taka/other-rival at the same time. It's their psychological problem and no one cares. There are also some sensational semi-tabloid journalists like Pj Kwong who make money on rumours and lies. And there is the Internet where the skater is being used for promoting the certain club/coach by anonymous posters who will disappear the instant he leaves that club/coach. And where Mao&Yuna are both used for "dealing" with hystorical Japan-Korea issues. No need to take any of this seriously. Enjoy the sport and follow fair play is the advice that always works.

    Merci d'avoir partagé.

    Such a cute story! I read through with my big smile lol. I really appreciated your generous to share your thoughts with me here.

    We are in agreement on the love at first sigh theory towards skaters but I also think things can be different sometime. Some came at first time in your life, you keep them in your heart. But some just needs you take time to identify your deep love of them.

    I'm not sure if you're aware of a well-known novel by Jane Austin, Pride and Prejudice, your process of being a fan of Yuzuru reminds me lots of fun I enjoyed with the novel lol, delicately the same.

    As mention of fans wars, it's the least thing you need to care IMAO. We can't guarantee every fan could be rational and nice , sometimes some fans could be paranoid and unreasonable. Just ignore them and then simply there's no war. Never let them ruin your joyness coz basically there's nothing they can do for real.

    Hey, HelTra91, I read it through and I don't think it's pointless lol. As you are a Mao fan, I believe you already knew Yuzuru is a mao fan too. Yuzu said once he learned jump timing issue from Mao's Triple Axel. They two are such cutie pies lol.

    Off season is just boring and BTW it seems Yuzuru may not attend Waseda's entrance ceremony though coz there's no repo confirmed he's there.

    Takasu Tsutomu, a famous Japanese Photographer said some cute things about Yuzu in recent Canon interview.

    http://web.canon.jp/event/skating/be.../takasu03.html

    As turing into male skater's perspective, both Yuzuru Hanyu and Daisuke Takahashi are quite interesting. Specially Hanyu, with a strong sense of ego which seems hardly to hide, a competitive spirit (In the original article the writer use word rivalry in Japanese), all seems really adorable. In some interviews, he squinted aside. He gazed at an object somewhere else as the time of other skaters talking, such vivid eyes. I would like to capture and delivery those kind of dramatic facial expressions from this kid.

    This is exactly the Yuzuru I knew for a loooooong time lol.
