    He is only the beginning of his career running. He will be good, but he needs time.

    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?

    No you are not. I join you in your non-excitement. Weir's first outfit looked juniorish. Has he done other outfits for Hanyu after that?

    Hey, peeps.

    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.
    Miyamoto is always a good choice, but I kind of doubt this will happen.

    I guess they will let David Wilson create Yuzurus choreo for next season. Looks like he and Yuzuru were pretty close in the KnC and afterwards.

    Nanami Abe is the most underrated woman in the business. I think she knew exactly what worked for Yuzu and played up to his strengths. I also think the SP she choreographed for Daisuke Takahashi this season was perfectly matched and really showed off Daisukes strengths. I think it is sad that both japanese skaters search their luck with foreign people, who don't seem to understand them as much, when there is soo much talent close to home. (Including Miyamoto) *sigh* Well, I know why they don't use them..I just don't like it.

    Thank you Mathman! <-- does this qualify?

    David Wilson choreo is a natural choice since he is part of the coaching team, and hope he and Yuzuru will gel better next year now that they got to know each other better. Although I have sometimes felt it would be nice to incorporate Nanami into the choreography process as she really understands her long time student. Either way Romeo and Juliet is hard to measure up to.

    Any more news on Yuzuru's knee condition?

    I agree. I think it is an important job for a choreographer. I also want someone who choreographs taking Yuzuru's hard jumping layout into an account.

    Unfortunately, no. But silence might be a good sign

    Hi everyone

    Simply I just want to deliver some information which I desperately wanted to see on this thread but unfortunately never showed up.

    Yuzuru's comment on Notre-Dame de Paris program (Magazine Number 817 2012/11/22)


    Notre-Dame de Paris brings something I'm chasing for since always even though it's a really tough program for me.

    I was stuck in my comfort zone during past years, followed exactly the same patterns of choreography both short and long, the plan of jumps, spins never changed, be more specific, 4T, 3A, the order of spins, the entering second, the track of applying movements, all these elements never changed. I could master my program easily and effortlessly because I've get used to it.

    Hence Notre-Dame de Paris is a totally brand new program, a big challenge to me. I don't even know if I could bring it perfectly before the ending of 2012-2013 season.

    But I feel 'Yes, it's different from my own past' when I'm performing Notre-Dame de Paris. I was a junior skater last year but now I believe I could compete with other opponents for championships. I, myself have this feelings as others may not identify the differences. '
    And more, Yuzuru's thoughts of his training in Toronto. (Magazine Number 817 2012/11/22)


    Nothing would have changed if I'm not coming to Toronto. I transformed every aspect of myself. Being 17 or 18 just came once in my life, I would like to give my all even I know it's extremely hard. I'm still missing Sendai a lot, sometimes I also feel I'm fighting myself alone. But I determined to be a much stronger Yuzuru Hanyu for all the people whom I left behind in Sendai.

    Magazine Number 822 2013/2/7

    I really want to go back to Canada ASAP. I want to have talk with Orser. The trusting relationship has gradually established between us even we still have language barriers, sometimes we may not understand each other 100% . I want to examine all over myself again.

    My skating was like dimmed by a pink shapes. I discovered the meaning of my heart after I came to Toronto. I realized I should not chase of my seniors in rush when I'm staring into myself. What I should do is to keep challenging myself to what I deserve.


    So you think you understand Yuzuru very well and exactly know what he needs most. Unfortunately Yuzuru himself already fly to another planet.

    Never stop challenging himself is the nature of Yuzuru Hanyu. And now you want him to go back to old Yuzuru Hanyu, seriously?

    Thank you for the great information, wxunxx! Actually I joined the forum to support 'his' decision to train in Canada but it was not easy since English is not my language. Anyway thank you again.
