    Congrats to Yuzuru! Though I'll always root for Daisuke, I feel lucky to be a fan while Yuzuru is skating, and it's exciting to realize that he's just starting his climb to excellence.

    Did he take the university entrance exam between NHK and GPF?
    Amazing, congrats! I'd imagine so, because apparently he received his acceptance letter after the GPF.

    Very brief translation:

    "I still can't believe that I won, somehow I could manage to hold on because of the score of SP."
    "Takahashi-senshu was very strong, he narrowed the gap of the score after FS. If I were him, I could not have done that. I should practice more and more and want to skate better in FP."

    http://hochi.yomiuri.co.jp/sports/wi...OHT1T00211.htm

    This article says that Yuzuru passed an essay examination, and after that, he had an oral examination using Skype on Dec.9 in Sochi. No wonder he got sick from a lot of mental pressure.

    I'm verry looking forward to seeing EX!!

    Whaaa.. that is an amazing achievement! It explained a few things. Imagine taking A-Levels for Uni entrance exam and still did THAT!!
    Next year is going to be even better I am sure! Congrats Yuzu!

    Last of Samurai perhaps? Or something by a Japanese composer?

    Can they transform this exhibition into a competitive piece? That would be so awesome!! :D I would totally attend Yuzuru's own ice show...

    Mad respect.

    This uploader translated the song lyrics and subtitled his NHK version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1PNaAM37LA I'm glad he performed it again!

    As for future programs... I'd actually love for him to skate to something by Joe Hisaishi (not Nausicaa though since Taka already skated to that).

    I think Joe Hisaishi is genius.

    I sometimes wonder...if Yuzuru skates Romeo and Juliet at full length now, he might land the last salcow easily.

    Hi, this is my first post and I'm going to be ambitious and translate this
    interview since I haven't seen it translated yet. I may be wrong in my
    interpretation so please feel free to point out if I've missed something.
    The following is a translation of this interview before the Japan National
    Championship EX.

    Inter: So now we have here the first-time winner of the Japan National
    Skating Championship, Yuzuru Hanyu. Congratulations on your first win!
    HY: Thank you
    Inter: So, it has now been two days since you won the title, how does it
    feel?
    HY: It hasn't really felt real yet.
    Inter: Why is that?
    HY: Because I was not able to give a satisfactory performance in my free and
    Takahashi Sempai (senior) did so well, I personally do not feel as if I have
    won.
    Inter2: After the skating, what did you and Takahashi say to each other?
    HY: We said "otsukaresama" (well done? Good work?) and Congratulations to
    each other, however he is my senior and so we did not speak about the
    results.
    Inter2: Takahashi has said that you are a rival, regardless of your age. How
    do you take that?
    HY: It makes me very happy but to me he is still a 'being on a cloud' so I
    will do my best to get closer to that
    Inter: We feel you have grown season by season, do you feel that you have grown?
    Hy: This year has been a year of great change for me and I think I have
    shown that through change I have progressed this season.
    Inter: What kind of a competition has the National championships been for
    you?
    HY: To take first place in Japan is very difficult and I felt the intense
    competitiveness Japan's male skaters while watching and skating during this
    competition.
    Inter: while skating too?
    HY: Yes even during practice I could feel an intense atmosphere. I was
    nervous.
    Inter: Next year is worlds and you have written your determination here, (on the flag)
    'Strength of feeling'
    HY: Yes, to not give in to anything; myself, my surroundings, to concentrate
    on myself so that I can get stronger, those were my thoughts when writing.
    Inter:You project an image of someone who is mentally strong
    HY: This time, with both my performances coming last, my mental aspect was in tatters
    Inter3: Next year in the spring you will graduate high school and start
    university, is there something in university life that you look forward to?
    HY: I've been accepted in to Waseda University to study Human
    Communication Sciences. Since it is Communication sciences, I would like to
    learn about sound and surroundings and how they relate to my personal
    experiences (i'm not sure about this sentence)
    Inter: So studious! Well done for not having to brace yourself before saying
    all that!
    HY: I'm actually very nervous right now.
    Inter: You will perform for us again after this, what will you think about
    as you perform?
    HY: Today I am collaborating, so I would like to think about our bonding (?)
    I would like to perform in a way that is emotionally moving.
    Inter: We look forward to it. We'll let you get ready
    HY: Thank you
    Lot's of bowing as we do here in japan.

    Whew! That's it! If you notice that I've translated something wrong, do
    tell.
