    (I also call him "the kid" and probably I'll call him like this until he turns 30 )
    The one of notre dame was really 0.0 the R&J is much better for me but I still don't love his costumes, but well if he is happy :D

I hope he would do the same with the current FS.

    PS: Still, I have to say NO to his FS costume. SP's costume is okay. But Weir and Brian Oser should re-think about their choices of costume for this kid.
    In Toronto and at the Toronto Cricket Club, he is not referred to as a kid but treated as an adult with the utmost reverent respect. Here, where he trains, he is legally an adult and treated as one. However, it has always been that way from day one when he arrived here. He came here to grow and to be shown how to develop into who he is, not to be molded into someone else's idea of who he should be.

    The costume, if you look at past posts dealing with the history and purpose of the costume (lots of threads on this site), and listen to what Weir said during the Skate Canada NBC broadcast, was designed under Yuzuru's direction and most of the features of the design were specifically directed by Yuzuru. Weir also said that Yuzuru personally maintained ultimate control over the design of his costumes (and incidentally the choice of his music). It is not a decision made for him by someone else. He is very much a person in charge, not a kid for whom those decisions are made. (Brian also has great respect for Yuzuru, and Yuzuru does make a lot of the calls in many other respects, such as for instance, keeping the quad salchow this year in the fs.)

    I would also suggest that you go back and look at Brian Orser's costumes if you think that Brian would have any problem with the ones that Yuzuru is wearing. It should be obvious that he would not. But Brian, as well, knows what he is doing.

    That you do not like his costumes is fine, but understand that they are part of Yuzuru that cannot and should not be separated out from him. He is not anyone's chattel to be told what or what not to wear. Everyone closely around him in Toronto seems to respect and support him, and stand by him. He is part of the TCC family. He is a person and a beautiful force unto himself. Orser and Weir do not have to re-think anything.

    Wow you have a lot of inside information... Is does seem that Yuzuru is the kind of person that won´t do anything that he don´t want to do, but 19 is still young and he seem to do have an innocent side of him.

    I think is talking about how young he is ... Golfer Sergio Garcia used to be called "The Kid" and people did until he was almost 30yo because he arrive to the PGA very young, maybe is the same with Yuzuru.

    Actually, Yuzu seems to be very mature. However, I still have in mind the 17 years old boy who caught my eye at the WC. Also, I still call him kid because of his lovely reactions and innocent attitude. +Pooh

    Don't be so serious. I was just trying to be funny. It's not like other skaters' costumes are not scary/weird to look at either (Javi's costumes has always been tight, kinda scary too). Beauty in the eye of beholder .
    Yuzuru is still a teenage, in Japan 19 is underage, it's their law, I don't think it's wrong to call him a kid. My mum is still calling me a kid even though I finished college long time ago.
    Anyways, I don't know Yuzuru in person but I have met a genius his age before (a young violinist) and I suppose that these young genius seem to have the same carefree, innocent aura.

    As far as I know Yuzu's mom is always with him everywhere he goes , never let him alone , she's at every competition and they're always together everytime they fly or return from Canada. Is she his agent?

    I think this thread is very interesting to read for new fans to know more about Yuzuru.
    It was opened in November 2011 and this thread itself is like a journey with him.
    167 pages is a lot to read but I think it's worth it

    I don't think so. 19 years old is not regarded as adult in Japan, and maybe he needs someone to take care of him in order to devote himself to skating.

    I heard Ms. Keiko Shirota, former Director of Japan Skating Federation is supporting the Hanyu family.
    Yuzuru and his family is trusting her very much. But, she is a person dismissed from the Federation once due to money scandal around 2006 together with the Head Director. She is a very capble person, and actually it is her who built up the successful system to develop excellent figure skaters in Japan, including Nobeyama training course.
    It is a rumor that there is some kind of friction between her and the Federation.
    Orser wanted her to have the coach pass for supporting Yuzuru because he had to look after Javier as well, but JSF did not allow that, and Orser complained about it.

    This is what I just read in a magazine, so I cannot say it is credible or not.

    Supporting in what sense, may I ask? It seem that in terms of money with ANA and Coca Cola sponsor Yuzuru made almost US$2.2 millions last year, will guess that this amount of money will increse now.

    In the emotional side maybe but I don´t think is smart to be too much close or depend on a person who isn´t ok with your federation and have had problems with the law.

    As far as I know Yuzu's mom is always with him everywhere he goes , never let him alone , she's at every competition and they're always together everytime they fly or return from Canada.
    Well look at Meryl Davis and Charlie White´s moms, they are so legendary for being at every competition and supporting their childs than for the Olympics there were fluffs pieces and articles about them.

    I read in this thread a long time ago that his mother went with him to Canada because of his "eating problems", he couldn´t cook and she was worried about his health. Considering how emotional Yuzuru was when he moved first time to Canada (crying and everything that was reported) it wouldn´t surpriseme that she wanted to be with her. Is normal for a parent to be with his underage child (Yuzuru was 17 when he started with Orser).

    Yuna Kim was with ther mom all the time she trained in Canada (and it was said that friction between her and Orser play part in the split).

    meh, not all of them. I grew up with one of those (also a violinist) and her parents made sure that her childhood was put to good use so her talent wouldn't be wasted. there was never anything carefree or innocent about that girl (came back to bite them in the a**, though. when she went away to study at a conservatory she realized that she still had some living to do… I leave the rest to your imagination)

    I guess it's just what we "old folks" do probably just because he still looks very much like a teenager and makes us feel ancient. I'll probably keep doing it, too. I'm sure nobody here means it as an insult or wants to be disrespectful.

    and besides, he does have that effect even on non-fangirly people. you should have heard my mom she came by while I was still watching the flower ceremony after the FS. and the lady who handed over the flowers actually kinda patted Yuzuru's cheek. My mom started laughing and said something along the lines of "well, I get it. look at that baby-face! who wouldn't wanna do that"


    as a side note: I honestly hope that becoming a grownup and keeping some kind of child-like innocence aren't mutually exclusive. at least not at such a young age. I'm sure he's very mature for his age. he's been through a lot. it changes you. (everybody who's ever been smacked in the face by life knows that) From what I've read about him he obviously has his own mind, he knows what he wants and what he likes. that's a good thing! But being legally an adult shouldn't mean that you have to be serious about everything all the time. And if the Pooh Bear is any indication, I guess he's not heading that way anytime soon. The fact that he's already so mature without being afraid to sometimes act like the young person that he is - that's very much part of why I like this kid (there, I said it again, don't hit me )

    Since when is Yuzuru sponsored by Coca Cola? I'm not even sure who puts around this rumors... he has a corporate affiliation agreement with ANA, is one of the Symbol Athletes of the Japanese Olympic Committee. That's it.
    And the 2 million dollars thing?! Besides the fact that no one knows what he actually earns, the rumors that went around when he signed the contract with ANA said that the contract was estimated to be worth around 30 million yen a year, which is around 300000 US dollars. I repeat, rumors.
