    Maia just posted on their Facebook page:

    On our way to Japan! Thank you so much for all of the support and kind messages. It was great being back in Russia and we can't wait until our next visit. Alex is doing his best to recover so we can begin our preparations for NHK. As always, we'll keep you posted! - Maia
    So it looks like for now they're in for NHK. Hoping for a speedy recovery and a good competition for these two.

    And this tweet from Alex Shibutani ‏@AlexShibutani sounds promising:

    Marina was interviewed at Cup of Russia. There is a fair sized section about Maia & Alex. Unfortunately, some of it is the part Google translate didn't do a great job with, but she of course, speaks very highly of them.

    If anyone would like to express their faith in the Shibutanis, the CBC is having an online vote re "Who can overcome their bad Grand Prix outing?"
    http://www.cbc.ca/sports/figureskati...formances.html

    The other choices are Artur Gachinski and Alena Leonova.

    [Mods, I hope this kind of post is acceptable for a Fan Fest thread.]

    Alex & Maia should be off to Japan now, and I wish them great luck there!

    I've been checking GS archives for interviews with Fan Fest favs, and here's one with Alex and Maia from 2010
