    Yuzuru calls it "an alternative Lunge" in this article.

    I may be a minority here, but I liked his SP since I saw it for the first time (THE ICE video).
    FP...I don't know yet.
    Somehow it reminds me of his Zigeunerweisen program.
    Programs are so hard for his stamina, and he doesn't have room for musical expression, IMO.
    He admitted himself that he couldn't skate Zigeunerweisen program as he wished in the whole season.

    The Romeo and Juliet program is very special for me.
    I was a casual fan of figure skating for many years, was never a fan of a particular skater.
    But this program and Yuzuru himself made me have more interests in skating and participate in this forum.
    However, I felt almost nothing when I saw it in COC and COR last season.
    Interestingly, I was so shocked and fascinated by his performance in GPF, it was all of a sudden.
    I hope that it will happen to me with regard to his FP this season.

    Yuzuru's Romeo and Juliet program is special to me too, it definitely made me a fan of his skating. I felt nothing for Yuzuru at all when I first saw him skate a few years ago when he was a junior, but then suddenly BAM! Romeo and Juliet. As for Notre Dame, I think his stamina issues definitely affect the program, but I just don't think the choreography is that strong. I hope he goes back to Bestemianova and Bukin at least once more for choreography, but sadly I don't think that's going to happen....

    Almost same here )) I first saw Yuzuru on TV at last year's COC, didn't get much into his FS, mostly was like 'Ah, what a cute and flexible boy!', was very glad that I was going to COR, even brought a stuffed toy with me for the first time to the competition )))
    At GPF I paid more attention to the program itself and at Worlds it was one of the most emotional performances I ever saw.
    It's the first time I'm a fan of a figure skater in many many years. I was rooting usually for sportsmens from my country (but of course liked somebody more then others) and for such artists as Stefan and Dai.
    I hope that later in the season Yuzuru will be able to put some emotion into his FP, I think it has good beginning but maybe lacks strong music in the end (unlike Romeo).
    But I can say that I'm in love with his SP, especially after such great performances as at SA and NHK, it seems like I can re-watch it again and again )))

    I remembered that Yuzuru was still 17 and an ordinary boy although his talent was extraordinary.
    This one was taken at the airport (busy kid!) in summer, and he was studying Japanese history.
    "I like using several colors of pens", he said.

    He is going to be 18 during GPF.
    It 's not related to skating, but he is barely old enough to legally married in Japan

    evangeline, Lunna, thank you for your replies!!

    Thx for the link! While the back outside move resembles a lunge, I agree with the interviewer the sideways heel move feels more like an ina bauer, open hips and all.

    Hanyu's short is brilliantly choreographed and he plays the character extremely well.

    Though I am not fond of the actual SP , Yuzu is definitely selling the program in his very personal way , expecially in the second half of it, when the blues turns into a rock-blues .

    Yuzu surely feels the rhythm and espresses the music, there’s a lot of power , energy, speed and fun … I loved the NHK EX and the encore when he skated to the SP step sequence wearing the traditional japanese outfit, what a contrast… it’s so funny !!

    Number #817 got generous after NHK and put Yuzu'z interview online, before that it was available only in printed version. There's nothing particularly new, he talks about his training in Canada, which is such a nice Club, Javi inspired him, he has a team of people like Orser, Wilsons, Jeff, his basic skating was poor, in a group of 10-20 skaters from junior to senior practicing SS this Worlds bronze medalist wasn't the best, he had to be mature in his new progs but it was tough, etc. Basically it's pretty much the same stuff that we read in various sources earlier. The article: http://number.bunshun.jp/articles/-/307988 pics: http://twitpic.com/e/2k78
    Yuzu arrived in Sochi, earlier than the rest of Team Japan, and that police officer doesn't look scary at all, it's just his way of "Welcome to Russia!" http://www.nikkansports.com/sports/n...4-1055568.html
