OMG, I just found this out on Tumblr too. I watched it before without subtitle, and I was like "Noooooooooooooooo~~~~" because I didn't understand a thing except for "Arigatou" *lol* I like it when he just said it straightforward "I was tired" when they were talking about the fall. Honestly, it's the fall the left such a huge huge huge impact on me. I don't think I'll ever forget the image of him trying to stand up and keep going strongly! And yeah, he surely is emotional, which makes me wanna pad his head so bad (ღ˘⌣˘ღ) And yeah, his reaction at 10:41 is hilarious. So cute! XD
I'm glad that I found this forum, or else I'd be excited alone, and that's not good >_<
I always wanted to pinch his cheeks!! He's sooooooo adorable!!! I am too emotionally invested in his performances, so that when he falls, my heart scatters :'( But yes, the fall also left a huge impact on me. I felt his strength, courage and determination when he quickly recovered from the unexpected fall to land a beautiful 3A-3T. It was like he was sending the Earthquake victims a message to never give up even after falling so deeply (in a literal sense).

Good news for Yuzuru fans:
The newest edition of 'World Figure Skate No.53' magazine will feature Yuzuru on its front cover!
Scheduled to be published on Apr 21, 2012.
Isn't it the very first time to cover the magazine's front page by himself for Yuzu?
I did not check the previous posts, so my apologies in advance if someone already posted somewhere on this topic...

Thank you Kilyca for all your translation work!! I really appreciate it. Hanyu is such a precious inspiration and I hope he continues to work hard (have no injuries) and win the gold medal at the Sochi Olympic Games! :D
Also, not sure if anyone's posted it, but I found the HD video of Hanyu's free skate with no commentary while reading an article from examiner dot com. :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOQliU_zSa8
Hanyu skates with such fearless abandon on the ice. He really goes accelerating into those jumps. I love this kind of figure skating. There's no fear or calculation, just pure skating.
OT but I have always wanted to thank YOU, let's talk, for all your updates on Japanese skaters on this Forum in the past.
I am sure other members who recently joined to post here feel the same way.
Glad that I could do that (=to thank you) finally today!
