    I started to pay attention to her after watching her 4CC SP this year. Just love the way she moves on the ice, though her jumps lack height and aren't that pleasing to my eyes. However her lightness and gracefulness just moves me.

    Super happy for her LP at Skate Canada. Just wonderful! Great start for the season!

    Satoko really won me over this season with her "Miss Saigon" free program. I think she has a real chãnce to ẅin Japanese Nationals this December, and I am saying that as a Kanako fan.

    Not just with her skates, but especially her arms down to the very tip of her fingers. I don't use the word "exquisite" very often, but there you go. I think her LP is a wonderful package for her.

    She's also going to NHK?

    I completely agree with you! I just emphasized the skates because that's the aspect that matters the most to me, and I feel that skaters often attempt to compensate for a lack of expression with the skates by doing extra upper-body movement. I know that's something I was guilty of . She will be at NHK. I'm excited to see her.

    I'm so utterly taken with this girl. Her musicality kills me, in the best way possible. I've always enjoyed her and rooted for her since her junior debut, but this year she has become so amazingly expressive that I'm turning into an uber. Everybody is so critical of her small jumps and even for BEING small, but I don't care. Because for me, I don't even need her to jump at all - the rest of her skating is THAT good.

    A revisit of her junior debut SP. This first made me a fan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAuD9PJqq5g

    I loved her Miss Saigon LP. I'm a wee bit worried about the packaging her team went with for the SP, but she's very promising, and I look forward to seeing more of her.

    And it's always great to watch someone who can spin both directions.

    I also liked the "Miss Saigon" program and yes, she's very musical.

    Did anyone else think Tara sounded too critical of Satoko? Can't remember the exact words, but there was something in the tone of her voice that sounded unnecessarily harsh.

    Anyways I just love Satoko'a Miss Saigon. Best choreography of this season so far. She did even better than Japan Open. Very wonderful. I might sound critical towards her but overall I love her LP very much. Not so much about her SP, I wish they changed the dress for her.

    I wonder about Satoko's coach. How they work on her jumps. I've read somewhere that her jumps has not much height because of the technique and it can be fixed (her toe peick or something like that).
    Mie Hamada's students are elegant but weak at jumps, but Satoko has been sent to Kulik's training camp, together with Shoma to work on her jumps for the past summers. She also went to Colorado, probably to work on choreography and refine her musical interpretation. Can her jumps get higher? I assume she doesn't have much elevation because her muscles are tiny, but then I'm no jump expert.
    Ms Hamada seems to be humble and aware of her strength and weakness as a coach and I love that she's open to letting her students working with other specialists to work on their weak areas. She also said that Satoko wasn't the most skilled student in her class, but she's the most hardworking student she's ever had and the only time Hamada ever saw her cry is when she had to finish practice early because of her mother's job . You can tell from previous seasons that Satoko's musicality didn't come naturally and she really had to work hard for that. Satoko has won me over since her "Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence".

    She's like Akiko Suzuki in a small body. I notice that Satoko's still wearing braces. From my observation, shy tiny girls like Satoko will look very beautiful in their 20s. Let's see if my prediction comes true .
