    I'll roughly translate it. I'm using this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwxSAJG8EIU but it starts half way. If you have another video, please share. The one with some foreign language commentary makes it hard to catch Hanyu's words.

    Hanyu: I was a little tired in the 2nd half.
    Interviewer: What was your condition in the 2nd half?
    Hanyu: I was able to perform quite well in the first half, but I got tired in the 2nd half.
    Interviewer: Were you affected by the jump?
    Hanyu: The jump did greatly affect me, but falling on the spin was not good, so I have to practice much much more.
    Interviewer: Your reaction after the free looked totally different from that in SA.
    Hanyu: I went into the free with a different mood and I practiced a lot this time so I had confidence going into the free.
    Interviewer: Your senior Takahashi Daisuke almost made a comeback, how do you feel about that?
    Hanyu: I could hear the cheering before my turn, and I thought he must have done well, so I relaxed a little and I think I was able to concentrate better thereafter.
    Interviewer: How do you feel about winning Takahashi?
    Hanyu: I don't feel like I have won him, but I did well in both sp and fs, so perhaps that's why I won.
    Interviewer: This time's competition is in Miyagi, how do you feel about it?
    Hanyu: On the bus, what I saw made me feel like ah this is where I lived, so I was quite calm.
    Interviewer: Next is the GP final, a big meet, how do you want to perform?
    Hanyu: I am very happy that 4 Japanese men are going to GPF, so I won't feel nervous and I won't feel foreign, so I want to perform better and to a higher level.
    Interviewer: I look forward to it. Thank you.
    Hanyu: Thank you.

    ETA I found another interview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuNQoUyxdZw not sure which is the one you want.

    Interviewer: Congratulations.
    Hanyu: Thank you.
    Interviewer: This loud cheer, and your first NHK win, how do you feel?
    Hanyu: Frankly, I feel that I could have done better in my SP (!!!), but my movements are smoother than in SA, which I think is owed to everyone's support.
    Interviewer: Was there a big plus that this competition was held in your hometown?
    Hanyu: Yeah, I feel thankful to be in my hometown and I can feel calm in this environment so I could relax. Even though I didn't do very well, I think I did good.
    Interviewer: Takahashi caught up quite a bit, how do you feel?
    Hanyu: Well this is my hometown, and a lot of people came to watch, so I thought that if I harnessed the crowd's cheer and support and skate till the end, everything should go smoothly.
    Interviewer: Your 1st half was very good.
    Hanyu: Yeah, but I tripped in the salchow, but I stood up most jumps, but I got a little tired in the 2nd half, so I think I need to practice more.
    Interviewer: So GPF is decided, and a lot of fans are looking forward to it, may I have your thoughts?
    Hanyu: Getting first and going to GPF is a very good feeling and I'm very happy that I could win NHK in my hometown.

    I will translate the documentary if I have time.

    This year, senior high school student Hanyu Yuzuru went to Canada because he wants to get gold in Sochi which is 1 year and 3 months away. A lot of media were there before his departure.
    00:33 Hanyu: It's really difficult to bite.
    00:42 Figure skater, Hanyu Yuzuru. 17 years old, and he completed quad jump. He is a young man who has flexibility like a girl's.
    01:20 Japan's next figure skating star.
    01:30 This season, to improve himself, he went overseas to train. His coach is a famous coach who coached Kim Yuna to her gold medal at Vancouver 2010.
    01:50 What awaited him in Canada was training focused on his foundation. This was a different style of training that aimed to improve his skating from 0 (I think in English it's starting from zero right? It was said as starting from 1 in the video.)
    02:00 I was so focused on jumps that to ask me to focus on skating skills is quite hard.
    02:18 So he faced a big challenge.
    (Orser)
    02:34 He wondered how to face this challenge. He went back to Japan because an international competition was around the corner.
    02:55 I want to change myself.
    03:10 He worked towards the challenge of aiming to be the top of the world at age 17.
    03:30 Ontario state, east of Canada. Hanyu had been living here since May.
    03:40 There are many ice shows in Canada. Families and even the elderlies attended these shows.
    04:15 Today is the first time Hanyu participated in an ice show since arriving to Canada. For pro skaters, they participate in ice shows to improve their skills.
    04:33 In Japan's figure skating field, everyone knows Hanyu and he is very popular.
    04:40 But in Canada, almost no one knows him.
    04:50 It's written Yuzura. Oh really, it's Yuzura. Yuzura yuzura... sounds like russian name.
    05:04 And here, Yuzuru Hanya.
    05:11 Hanyu: Can't help it, whatever. I don't really care.
    05:27 In an atmosphere that is different than in Japan, Hanyu started his performance.
    05:40 When it's going to start, the atmosphere in the arena changed.
    05:50 The quad jump that makes people stare (open their eyes?), arousing cheers from the crowd.
    06:15 This day, Hanyu created a name for himself.
    06:36 Hanyu: So tired.
    06:40 What's the difference with Japan's ice show?
    06:42 Hanyu: I thought what was I so nervous for. I was nervous about being overseas and not knowing how the crowd will react. In Japan, the crowd is quiet, but here it is loud and noisy so I was nervous.
    07:10 Hanyu has been training in a rink in Toronto.
    07:20 1pm, back to practice.
    07:30 The club that Hanyu goes to has been established for 60 years. A prestigious club that has produced many medalists. Many skaters from all over the world who are seeking high level practice come here.
    07:50 Hanyu: Please.
    07:57 Here, Hanyu practices for 3 hours a day, 6 days a week.
    (orser)
    08:18 In this club, there are about 20 coaches. There are spins, jumps etc specialist coaches.
    08:37 For Hanyu, to increase the precision of his good quad jump, he sought Brian Orser to be his coach, who in his time, got 2 Olympic silver medals.
    09:00 After retiring and becoming a coach, he coached Kim Yuna to a gold in Vancouver.
    09:17 Orser feels that Hanyu has lots of potential and so started coaching him.
    09:25 The greatest problem is language barrier, so Hanyu uses gestures.
    10:00 In men's single, it is now and era where you can't win without a quad.
    10:14 This season, Hanyu decided to take up the challenge of doing 2 types of quad. The first is quad toe that takes off with the toepick, a jump that he is very proficient in. The other is the quad salchow. This takes off from the edge, making it harder than the toe loop.
    11:00 In the world, there are only few who can do this high difficulty quad salchow.
    11:14 Hanyu went to Canada to improve on his jumps, but Orser wanted him to work on his skating basics instead.
    (orser)
    12:05 The performance of March Worlds winner, Canada's Patrick Chan. His beautiful step sequence, which has a lot of body movements. He has high speed, dynamic jumps.
    12:30 His special quality is his way of skating, a style which is like licking the ice. This type of skating is what Orser refers to as skating skills.
    12:50 With good skating skills, one can get high marks in both TES and PCS.
    12:58 Triple flip.

    Yay, it's beautiful! I'm glad to see Yuzuru doing movements that not all male skaters do, this one and the Biellman spin.
