    From 7:15 Yuzuru is trying quad salchow. First attempt. Fall. No problem.. I am gonna try again And second attempt landed nicely Then Daisuke trying quad flip, and Takahiko also quad
    Thanks for the link! It was fun watching Hanyu skate when he was younger, can't believe that was three years ago!

    That salchow was great! (if only he could land it like that in competitions ...)

    I love how he looks in this black long sleeve training top because of the design (the first 10sec of this video) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4xTmzWHeEw . Sew some of the crystals of this Johnny's costume http://nickverrreos.blogspot.sg/2012...me-minute.html (the first pix), to a black long sleeve following the design of that training top just around the shoulders

    Old video of Yuzu video bombing Jason Brown https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_kPmkCLiJE

    Thinking a little too hard there?

    I think Yuzuru now has a bear with every one of his costumes, even some from his EX
    Fans are so talented~ Wonder if he ever got a Hana ni nare one?

    Anyways, I find the reporter quote in your link very very amusing:
    This is 19 years old Takahashi's EX "Nocturne" (choreographed by himself) dressed in black.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XSpJl6U9xs

    How about this type of simple black shirt and bants costume for Yuzuru?

    Honestly, I miss some kind of lace

    My suggestion is to ask the same designer of Etude D Minor.

    Hi Yuzusan
    Here is part 2 of the interview (from 7mins40 - 13mins 50). I will keep trying to do a bit every evening (if my work schedule allows).


    Part 2 of the interview between Arakawa Shizuka and Yuzuru Hanyu in July 2013

    7mins 40 secs ~
    As: At the end of last season you sustained some injuries but you battled through.
    Y: Yes. The year before too, at the World Championships I injured my right ankle but at that time I was helped and supported by so many people and that turned out to be a very emotional competition. This year too, also turned out to be an emotional World Championships and I realised that I get a lot of power from the people around me. While I was skating I didn’t have the feeling I was skating under my own power. During the competition I never felt that my leg was sore or that I was in pain…
    AS: You felt that that you were being supported and held up by the people around you?
    Y: Very much so. Truthfully, it felt really good and I was able to do my best right up until the end of the competition.

    8mins 31secs
    Narrator: “JOY” At the age of 12 he experienced for the first time the feeling of “Joy” as a skater.
    Y: I wasn’t able to go the rink (as it had closed down) and thanks to the efforts of Awakawa Shizuka the rink was reopened. At that time I was truly happy. I remember thinking how happy I was that I was able to train again at that rink.
    N: His first experience of living abroad was in Toronto in Canada.
    AS: Now, you have chosen Canada as the environment in which you are doing your training and you are also working with a new coach. This has been ongoing now for a while.
    Y: This is my second season there.
    AS: Your second season…Since going overseas to Canada, what would you say has most influenced your skating style?
    Y: I have to do a lot more basic skating practice. That skating practice also includes parts that will improve my muscles as well as being a practice schedule that is designed for me and that can be adjusted to include the skating skills that I need to work on, things that will make my skating better. This was something I had never done before in my training.
    AS: Are you enjoying your life there now?
    Y: I am really enjoying it but in some respects it is hard, too.
    AS: It the training tough?
    Y: Until now, I have just thought about my programs in terms of having to do the jumps. In that practice I would fall a lot of times while practicing the jumps. Rather that working on my skating skills I would always think “I need to concentrate on my jumps”. I now realise that it wasn’t an integrated approach and that skating skills should also be taken care of. I also have the feeling that the jumps are improving as they are coming out of my improvement in the skating skills department and that is a really fun thing for me.
    AS: If you are able to notice and improve your skating skills then you have more ease, especially towards the end of a program and it also has a good influence on a skater’s ability to jump. When it come to skating skills, as we become more mature and more adult we come to realise how important that part of training is. If you can notice that now, even if it is tough maybe you will start to notice all kinds of things to work on.
    Y: Basic skating skills often look easy but to do it properly you really need to concentrate on what you are doing. And because that is difficult it is a really enjoyable challenge. I keep thinking to myself, “If I can just get over this tough bit then things will be much easier”. It is a series of small steps, just like the small steps we take to build physical strength and that kind of thing helps to keep me motivated.
    AS: In Canada, you have met a lot of people, coaches for example. Who is the most interesting person you have met?
    Y: When you say interesting…. I have to say David.
    AS: I thought you would say that.
    Y: The world interesting matches him well. I never know what is going to come out of him. He is extremely good at creating programs that match the music. He is always thinking about which step goes where and is very aware of the levels. He is moving and creating in his own way but he is always making calculations about what needs to be included. In addition, as a person he is a really interesting guy with an interesting personality.
    AS: It seems like he is the kind of person you can trust to create a good program for you.
    Y: Yes, that’s right. If David is there I feel in safe hands. We can call on help from a spin coach or from a step specialist, but if David is there then I can trust him to help me with those things.
    AS: While you are in Canada, what do you like to do to relax?
    Y: I play games.
    AS: Do you like games?
    Y: I love them a lot. The place where I am living now is really high and that region is pretty flat?
    As: Do you mean high as in high above the ground or high as in an expensive place? (The Japanese word “takai” 高いcan express both of those meanings so it is slightly ambiguous.)
    Y: I mean that I am living on a high floor in the building, so when I look out I can see really far into the distance. When I am tired from studying or tired from skating I like to listen to music and look out at the view. I find this is a good way for me to relax.
    AS: Now that you are living and training in this new environment, have you found anything that you want to try or anything that you feel you need?
    Y: I feel that I need to put all of my energy into completing my new program. Every season, one of my programs, either the short or the free, I don’t perform as well as the other. As a skater, even though it is very difficult I want to be able to perform the both with the same “good” quality. So this season I, I will try not to miss anything out. With the Olympics as my final goal, I want to go into each competition with the view that I will find something to work on and improve on.

    Well done Channah ! Thx for your patience !

    Some things to notice :
    - He became more aware in the necessity to train basic skating.
    - David Wilson touched him, a guy who create a SP on Parisienne Walways like this ... it is understandable.
    - "either the short or the free, I don’t perform as well as the other" => I don't bet that he would have known he broke the score in the short program, and fell twice in his FS at Olympic

    ^Yes David Wilson is the choreographer of his FD for 2013 and 2014.

    Someone posted this on tumblr about the original R&J program from Blue Flames

    "The music I’m skating this season are chosen by Coach Nanami. Especially the free program’s ‘Romeo & Juliet' is a song that is easier for me to show my feelings. First it has an accurate story in the music, so it's easier to perform. Actually after the season started, maybe after Nebelhorn, I saw 'Romeo & Juliet’. The modern ‘Romeo & Juliet' when Leonardo DiCaprio was young, the one with the music I use. Watching the movie, I learned where specific music played at specific parts very well. The modern 'Romeo & Juliet' had a different image than the original Shakespeare version, it really moved me, and I thought it was really good. So right after I watched the movie, for example Carnival On Ice (October), I was skating while thinking back the movie. Not like skating by my own feelings, but combining myself with the movie. I skated the same image of DiCaprio’s Romeo. After that I skated it a lot in competitions, now I think I mostly skate not as DiCaprio or anyone else, but as my own story. I want to to put both Shakespeare’s and DiCaprio’s Romeo inside of me and perform my Romeo that are neither of them.

    ーFrom ‘Blue Flames’

    but I might have stashed a few things...

    so, since we were talking about costumes:
    As much as some people hate his R&J2 costume, I take issue with those pants. To whoever gave him those: you, dear Sir or Madam, are not a nice person (and that shirt doesn't exactly help either. even that doesn't really help)

    This one was tagged under his name so I say it counts as fanart (or fanfood)... someone actually baked medal cookies not quite as awesome as the Hana ni nare cake, but still pretty good

    I count this picture as a win (notice the prop in the background thinking 'God, what have I gotten myself into')

    This is pretty silly - but I laughed
