He just needs a good choreographer who plays to his strengths. For all the talk about his posture and how this team is good at polishing skaters, his FS had no attempt to at least mask it If you can't fix it right away, just hide it far away so people will not notice as much.
That worked well for his SP, which took his negatives in posture and made it part of the character. It didn't matter if his arms were loose or that he wasn't standing all the way straight with shoulders down because it was part of the character. It worked beautifully well for his R&J FS.
For next season, I would love to see him go back to Nanami and the two russians (sorry can't think of their names right now) or go to Miyamoto for choreography. Just PLEASE w/ever his team does, no dreary doom and gloom music....
I had been a figure skating fan of any great "performance" not a particular skater. However, Yuzuru is the first figure skater of whom I can identify myself as a BIG fan. I can't clarify the reasons. He is just SO special and exciting to watch. By the way, we all heard that Weir was working on a new costume for Yuzu. So Yuzu will wear Weir's costume for the next season? If that's the case, am I the only one who are not excited at all about the news?
1. The fan fest threads are intended as havens for enthusiastic fans to “party on” about their favorite guy, gal or couple. Analysis and criticism, debate pro and con, belong in the Edge. If your post does not contain this or this or at least this then this thread is probably not the place for it.
2. Address the topic not each other. It’s easy. Look at the sentence you just wrote. What is the subject of the sentence? Is it “Yuzuru?” Then you are good to go. If it is “you,” meaning another poster, then you are on the wrong track.
3. Don’t feed trolls. Just go on with the party. They will stop if they don’t get any reaction. If you just can’t stand it, report an errant post to the moderators. But when you do, make sure that it is really the other guy who is causing trouble and not you.
Bottom line – I hate work. Please don’t make me go back through this thread and delete a bunch of stuff, OK?

Both a huge "thank you" and "I'm sorry" to you, Mathman!
Party will go on now!
I wouldn't mind if Yuzuru stayed with Buttle for choreo. His SP was a really good match for him, and other programs from Buttle this season (like Patricks LP!) were quite amazing too. With Buttle, I'm quite confident he'll manage to create programms that Yuzuru likes to skate himself - I thought this season, you could see how his FS didn't come alive as much as his Romeo or his SP now did.Originally Posted by FTnoona
Miyamoto is always a good choice, but I kind of doubt this will happen.
