I guess as long as he's happy with his costume, I'll try to like it too (no matter how much I wanna spray him with a water bottle each time I see him in it.... )
    Come to think of it, his costume at Worlds 2013 was much much more... scary to look at. I would rather him wear the costumes he usually wears at EX. That style suits him more. Or he would rather wear jeans.

    If so, athletes ice the knees to reduce swelling and inflammation. A lot of NBA players do it when they take a rest during the game.
    Yea I also believe it is for inflammation, which is common in sports. Ice is good for inflammation.

    Just wanted to leave a link here of Yuzu like bopping/dancing for a couple seconds. Go to 1:00! So cute!!!

    Yes, I also prefer this costume to the one from notre dame. I usually don't have any problems with the costumes. I liked the SP one, but I don't think it would be suitable for the R&J program. (same about jeans)
    (I also call him "the kid" and probably I'll call him like this until he turns 30 )

    When I was a kid I used to watch all Yagudin´s performances and the Yagudin - Plushenko rivalry era was the best imo. After that, FS kinda lost it´s appeal to me and I drifted away from it for several years, but after Yuzuru´s PW I decided to check his other programs and yeah ... he kinda pulled me back into the sport I must say that I really admire his flow on the ice and the feel for music (i bet he would be a great prof. dancer too).

    after re-reading my post I really sound like a fangirl can´t help myself
    Welcome :D don't worry we all feel the same way here haha

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.
