big applause from audience to her final Lsp.
Her hometown is in Tohoku. In K&C, she put up a message thanking the support for Tohoku.

Her costume is like red kimono.
3Lo two footed
Her last spin is unique.
3T-2T second jump may be UR
I have faith in the swan

3S-2T soft landing, clean
Big applause to her performance.
53.16 into 2nd
That's a pretty good score for not the hardest jump content. I've never heard of this girl before, she must have skated very well. I hope they will show her during the broadcast, I'm curious.

3S-?? landing of first jump was not good
Big applause to her, too.
54.20 into 1st! Her sister Satsuki is in K&S, too.
3F landing has a flow
Big applause to her powerful performance. She held up her fists in triumph.
65.56 into 1st!!
3T-3T maybe UR?
She fell on the steps, so finished with an embarrassed smile.
This is a big score for Kanako, and I was so sure this is between Akiko and Mao. Now it's more exciting with the old Kanako back!
I agree!! I am very happy for Kanako, the competition just got more interesting

poweful performance using her whole body. She seems to be satisfied with her performance.
I remember watching her some time ago. Her jumps weren't very solid, but she had quite interesting choreography and very good expression for a skater of her level.

OTOH many skaters who have more correct technique now often mention in the interviews that they were very poor jumpers at first (Nobunari, Satoko) and/or started to skate rather late (Miki). Similarly, Yamada's wunderkids (Kanako, Shouma, and Kanako's ex-rival Sayaka Matsubara) were noticed by the media very early on, but all have that tilt + high kick technique on the take-off (which makes achieving the outside edge on the Lutz nigh impossible), but Miu, about whom I haven't heard until recently, has more correct technique. I wonder if she simply hadn't struggled with her jumps so much that they sought a technique that could work with her body type and/or had a different jump coach assist her.
