Does anyone know if Yuzuru's book 蒼い炎 (Blue Flame) is available in English? Or is there a full translation somewhere? Reviews? :D
Probably some poeple here have already seen it, but I just found a clip of Yuzuru Hanyu, full of very nice pics of him. It has a lot of one-sentense messages to Yuzuru, from his fans, sending cheer, support, hope, wish ,many thanks, and love, love, love to him. I guess this video was made because they knew Hanyu was struggling with illness when he competed at GPF and Japanese Nationals.

I honestly wonder if Hanyu is aware of this twitter account for his beloved Pooh bear :P
I can't find the original link, but apparently according to nonchan1023's translation on tumblr
All-Japan Nationals Men Medalists Press Conference
What would the 3rd quad be? Loop?羽生: そうですねぇ、僕はまだ決まってないんで、ちゃんと。とりあえず決められるようにしたいですけど、「来シー ズンまでに3種類決めたいと思います。」
高橋・無良: …おぉーう。(一同 笑)
Hanyu: Um, I have no idea yet, officially. I want to be able to decide soon, but “I would like to land 3 types by next season”.
Takahashi+Mura: ...woah (laughs)

According to Brian, Javier has been practicing that quad loop last summer and has been doing really well, I bet Yuzu couldn't just watch his dear Javi's quad loop without trying that himself.
But I believe no matter what his quad plan is next season, he will practice those carefully.

Yeah, hope Orser watches over his health very very carefully. OTOH, Yuzuru is lighter than many male skaters and I hope that's relatively easier on his body?
So he basically skated 4 shows (Stars On Ice, Skate Festival, Japan Super Challenge 2013) in 5 days? Wow.
Johnny Weir was on a Japanese TV show featuring his career, marriage and thoughts on Japanese skaters this afternoon.
About designing costumes, he said that Yuzuru was the first and would be the last male skater for him to design the costume while he has intention of helping pair teams or ladies.
It was an interesting show (at least to me), I hope it will be on YT!
Yuzuru told the media that he kept playing Wii with his relatives for two days during the break and his arms had muscle pain.
What a refreshing!!
yude - I have a feeling Johnny's going to be forever associated with Yuzuru when it comes to Japan . I liked the illustration boards with their faces.
This is a recent interview I think: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHJ9bHibVZc Did they get Dai to leave Yuzu a message? Could anyone provide a rough summary/translation of what was said?
