Yes they are giving him that giant Pooh Bear because they noticed Yuzuru has a pooh tissue box during competitions (took them that long to make this observation!).

I calibrated translation of this video. And I wrote it again as follows. I translated it without minding number of characters. I'm sorry to be too long.

Caster Yuko) Sorry to make you come on a day of such terrible weather. and made you wait.
Caster Yuko) It is the first time in history that plural Japanese men enter the winners' platform in the world championship.
Daisuke) I really think it to be a nice splendid achievement as a member of the Japanese men skater.
Caster Yuko) Did Hanyu talk in this way before? 「Daisuke Takahashi and Patrick Chan are existence on clouds. 」 The impression that you stood in the winners' platform with them?
Yuzuru) Because there was not an actual feeling fighting on the same stage though I was tense when I entered the winners' platform, it's miraculous.
Caster Yuko) How does Takahashi think of Hanyu?
Daisuke) I think fierce for me. He has all. In addition, he can get the atmosphere of the audiences in the stadium.
Caster Yuko) The audience did beating time with hands in the latter half of the FP.
Yuzuru) It helped me. It's really glad. I do my best and think like Takahashi from now on that I want to be able to do it.
Caster Yuko) At that time of Takahashi, the audience was in high spirits.
Daisuke) It was helped very much that time by big encouragement of the audience.
Caster Yuko) Fierce younger skater follows you.
Daisuke) I seem to be really overtaken by him. I'm terrified. I try so hard that it is not overtaken by him.
Caster Yuko) You are frank. I was surprised. Then, let us watch your performance together.
Narrator) The audience cheered the performance of two samurai and many Japanese national flags shook in stadium. And, it is the first splendid achievement in Japanese history that two people won medals at the same time.
Daisuke Takahashi succeeded quadruple jump that did not succeed so far in free program. He didn't mind pressure. He showed strong heart in world superlative performance. And he let combination jump of the high relative difficulty succeed and attracted the audience by world's best steps and his mature charm. And he won a silver medal.
17-year-old Yuzuru Hanyu showed courage not to mind pressure of the first participation. He let jumps of high difficulty succeed steadily. And, it was unexpected fall. But he was not discouraged at having fallen down, and he proved a strong heart. He thought of the revival of victims and finished spirited performance and received the cheers of the audience. After he raised a hand, he was relieved. He finished satisfaction performance, and he hug a coach. Focus, coach had a tissue cover of Winnie-the-Pooh. Pooh attended the kiss and cry too. Is Pooh a favorite of Hanyu?
Takahashi and Hanyu knew each other's results and praised good fight. Two Japanese national flags were raised in a commendation ceremony, and it was proved that Japan was a kingdom of the figure skating.
Caster Yuko) Did Takahashi watch this performance of Hanyu for the first time?
Daisuke) Yes, because he skated earlier than me.
Caster Yuko) How did you think to see this?
Daisuke) I have not yet watched all. Everyone said he was splendid. I want to watch recorded video after going home.
Caster Yuko) Takahashi's quadruple jump was good.
Daisuke) No, because but it was dangerous. I feel shiver, still now.
Caster Yuko) Really? Was it time of that landing?
Daisuke) I thought so later when I watched that video.
Caster Yuko) But did you survive it?
Daisuke) I did it somehow. I was anxious about only a quadruple jump. Because I thought that it was all right if even quadruple jump succeeded, I was relieved to be able to make landing.
Caster yuko) How did you think to see a performance of Takahashi?
Yuzuru) I felt force and dignified presence. I finished my performance and felt relieved, but thought that I should aim at the nobler performance like Takahashi.
Caster Yuko) Hanyu is a good younger. You fell down during footwork, that time.
Yuzuru) I felt that time stopped at that time.
Caster Yuko) But you did recover immediately, wasn't it?
Yuzuru) I was encouraged for applause and cheer of audiences.
Caster Yuko) This is mysterious. Your lucky-item?
Yuzuru) Lucky item, mmm.
Caster Yuko) Do you like? or dislike?
Yuzuru) I like it.
Caster Yuko) When there is Pooh, do you calm down?
Yuzuru) Yes, I calm down.
Caster Yuko) Is this indispensable?
Yuzuru) Because it is a stuffed toy, it's stable and always does the same face.
Caster Yuko) I see. Takahashi, are there lucky-item?
Daisuke)There is not it.
Caster Yuko) Do you not mind it?
Daisuke)I don't do that I am nervous about omens either. I think that adaptation to circumstances is good. Because I hate thinking with worry without it.
Caster Yuko) I will put this for the time being to do an interview well. Mainoumi, please.
Caster Mainoumi,Former sumo wrestler) At first, congratulations! I ask such a question, when you fatigued. sorry. What is necessary to win a gold medal,in The Olympics? At first, Hanyu.
Yuzuru) I am not yet such an existence. At first I aim at the participation. Therefore I want to do my best for all-Japan championship.
Caster Mainoumi) Takahashi. How about it? What is insufficient thing?
Daisuke) All is not enough to me. Because young skaters with ability participate, I cannot be careless. At first for me, quadruple jump, and physical strength and spin. I watched Patrick Chan and thought so.
Caster Mainoumi) It seem to have charity show for earthquake disasters in April?
Daisuke) It began in Kobe last year. It is the 2nd to perform in Kobe. We want to continue it for a long time.
Caster Yuko) Do you think the strength of Patrick Chan to be what?
Daisuke) What... I feel confidence for him when I practice together. I see him to be confident of his training.
Caster Yuko) It is written in the book of Hanyu that "I do not want to do skating with Patrick".
Yuzuru) Because it is the existence that I can never overcome. Of course Takahashi too. I don't yet feel like be able to beat other skaters.
At the time of press conference, I was glad that Patrick said to me in this way."You just shined most". I want to catch up with him sometime.
Daisuke) I want to beat him, too.
Caster Yuko) From children, there was such a question. "How can you spin faster?"
Daisuke) I think that I want him to teach me. Because I'm slow.
Caster Yuko) Ahaha! How do you do it?
Yuzuru) I cannot but practice.
Daisuke) I cannot do it even if I practice. Teach me.
Caster Yuko) Does Takahashi want to do spin faster than now?
Daisuke) I am slow than others. It's my weak point.
Caster Yuko) Tsubakihara?
Announcer Tsubakihara) It is the question from an audience."Have you wanted to quit skating?"
Caster Yuko) At first, Takahashi.
Daisuke) I thought so many times. When I was injury, I thought so in particular.
Caster yuko) Is it hard to show a motivation again at such time?
Daisuke) I was helped by close people. And I likes skating above all.
Caster yuko) And Hanyu?
Yuzuru) Because I liked baseball, I was at a loss. Because the particularly first coach was fierce. I wanted to quit it several times. haha
Caster yuko) The coach, was a woman? or a man?
Caster Yuko) But you did continue it.
Yuzuru) So I like skating. I presented successively with much effort, and father and mother supported it, too.
Tsubakihara) The next question, favorite sports and weak sports? And the hobby?
Daisuke) I am weak in a ball competition.
Caster Yuko) Ball games?
Daisuke) Tama... Oh, it's so. I am weak in ball games. sorry haha. I like the track and field comparatively whether it is proud. If it is sprint, I am not so slow.
Caster Yuko) Your hobby?
Daisuke) My recent hobby reads.
Caster Yuko) May I hear it in detail?
Daisuke) It may not be interesting.
Caster Yuko) What kind of book?
Daisuke) Various. I like horror novels.
Caster Yuko) Do you like being scary?
Daisuke) Yes, I excite, what happens after it.
Caster Yuko) Hanyu, what are weak sports?
Yuzuru) I am weak in soccer and basketball.
Caster Yuko) Even if you can play baseball?
Yuzuru) I can do the baseball all right, but cannot hit a basketball on the goal ring.
Caster Yuko) Is the baseball good than other ball games?
Yuzuru) Because my father played baseball. But my basketball play is terrible.
Caster Yuko) And your hobby?
Yuzuru) My hobbies are video games and music.
Caster Yuko) What kind of music do you listen to?
Yuzuru) It's J-POP. I am asked about "Do you hear classical music?". I don't listen at all. These that I hear recently, Hi-Fi CAMP / PornoGraffitti .
Caster yuko) Oh, I can not understand the talk. (I do not know a recent musician.) Next?
Tsubakihara) The next question. You eat together? And do you talk about skating?
Daisuke) Because we are different in a base; after a competition sometimes. We did not talk about the skating. isn't it?
Caster Yuko) Do you talk about the love?
Daisuke) No. Girls may do the story of the love. When talk together; in this way "The movement of this skater was interesting". We don't talk about the skating seriously. Other in this way "That skater is great." "That failure was laughable."
Caster Yuko) Are you careful about a meal? Hanyu in particular is thin.
Yuzuru) I am careful about nothing. When I want to eat it, I eat. And do not eat when I don't want to eat it.
Caster Yuko) Do you not have the likes and dislikes?
Yuzuru)There are not the likes and dislikes for food particularly. But, all of anything is not edible.
Caster Yuko) I prepared a favorite of Daisuke Takahashi. These are croissant. Did you already ate?
Daisue) The fan bought it for me who heard that I said, "I wanted to eat it!" in Nice. French croissant was really delicious.
Caster Yuko) Then ambition of the next season.
Daisuke) "Steadily steadily." I think about my situation. And I want to progress even little by little. Because there was not it, I change such a character.
Yuzuru) "LEVEL UP!" I was able to give satisfaction performance in the last of this season, but cannot expect the further evaluation. I improve skating and want to increase the kinds of the quadruple jump.
Caster Yuko) Mr Taro Kimura such as Winnie-the-Pooh. Is there the question?
Taro Kimura) There is not it. Please get a lot of medal and presents in competition and the Olympics.
Caster Yuko) I want to see gold and silver of dazzling. haha. Please do your best in health carefully. Thank you.
Daisuke& Yuzuru) Thank you.
The day when this broadcasted was the day of strong winds that many trucks were overturned.
Original was around 25 minutes, special feature. As for the thing uploaded in Youtube, some videos and conversations were omitted. My translation watched the thing which I recorded. The other part which is omitted of the video is about an earthquake disaster, and messages from children of Sendai for Yuzuru.
Please forgive me for my poor English. If there are place not to understand meaning, please point it out.

He returned to Sendai by Shinkansen safely in the evening of the Japan time. He was met by great shout of joy by a large number of people, and he smiled joyfully.
He go to the prefectural office and seem to attend at the opening ceremony of the school tomorrow. It does not seem to be in state that it is serious so that a trouble is reflected on everyday life somehow or other.

Hello everybody and count me as a new fan )))
My little fan resume :D
In last couple of years Daisuke was my fave in man's skating (can't say I was a fan but liked him a lot). I still like him and think that this year's programs are amazing but Yuzuru had just blown my mind )))
First I saw him on TV at Cup of China 2011, don't remember about SP, but LP I liked a lot. He had interesting technique (especially 3A), beautiful spins, great musical program. And the thought "what a cute boy" of course crossed my mind :D *He reminded me of anime-guys )))* So I was very glad to know that he'll take part in CoR. It was the first time I brought the stuffed animal to the show for the sportsman :D *hope he'll come along this year then I'll certainly will by the pooh for him :D * I was very glad that he won and made it to the finals ))
I didn't know what to expect from him at WC just hoped for as clean performances as possible. It's a shame he made a mistake in SP but in FS he just gave his 110% (if not even more), the performance was outstanding and emotional ))) And he was so cute when saw the scores, aaahhhhhhhhh ))) The thought about bronze medal became more and more real when Javi performed not so good, Brian didn't get the high scores (I was happy for his clean performance, I wish we could get two bronze medalists). So in the end of this great competition I was ready to jump out of joy like Yuzuru at the ceremony :D
OK, thanks for reading my opus *lol*
I came along to say big thanks for all useful links and translations in this thread ))) Can't say that I'll write here often (it's much more easier for me to read in English), but I'll always appreciate new info and interesting discussions. Also I'm very curious about what programs Yuzuru will have next season. For now Romeo is my fave )))
His coach seems to be very nice and do you know if she had trained any known skaters before?
04-04-2012, 04:39 AM
Oh, bad news (((

Kilyca , Thank you so much for the translation effort, you are great!
Yuzuru is really truely modest person (but of course ambitious at the same time), much more than I expect especially consider his recent success. This is the attitude of champion.
I wish his injury recover as quick as possible.
Lunna welcome to the forum and Yuzuru uberness club , from what I know his coach used to coach Shizuka Arakawa.
04-04-2012, 09:27 AM
Kilyca, if I can give you a hug, I will! Thank you so much for translating and helping us fans understand Yuzuru better!!
04-04-2012, 12:49 PM
According to Nena and rumors (tumblr), Yuzuru injured his ankle before his World's FS and had painkillers injected before his skate. Any confirmation?
04-04-2012, 01:15 PM
Thanks for the translation Kilyca. I have always been impressed by Hanyu's maturity and modesty and thoughtful answers infront of the press.
Wow i had no idea about his ankle injury! Makes his win seems even more impressive and surprising if true. What a warrior prince
I thought it was hilarious when I read here it bring out the big sister instinct when watching Hanyu, while on the Chinese skating forums they are talking about bring out the maternal instinct LOL!!
I wonder if Hanyu bring out the father instinct from guys ... may be from Plushy?
