I adore this program ( and ,of course , Akiko too ) ! It suits her perfectly. Has Camerlengo reached genius status , yet ? Even the costume is just beautiful.. I'll have to go and re-watch this a few times.
ETA:..and the exit is cute, too..

IMO, best program since West Side Story.
This is gonna "Change" Suzuki all over again.
I'm so happy for her.
Hi. This is my very first post!
I love Akiko's new FS, too! I think it brings out her exotic side so beautifully.
Together with her Kill Bill SP, it's going to be a whole new Akiko this season.
I like it, but a lot of movements are the same they used for The Bat, and it reminds me a lot of that program! But maybe it's because i loved it so much and I would've liked her to keep it, so I'm just trying to find something similiar to it in her skating! However, this was a "short" version, we'll be able to admire the entire program just at JO... And I'm happy she's keeping the layout she used last season, she used to change it every year in the last seasons! (And, congratulations to Akiko, the only one this summer to land a 3Lz and a 3F in the same EX program! )
WOW, new direction for Akiko - program wise, the flow, speed, transitions and the technical and choreographic content
is SUPER, the jumps had good landing and extension - seems Akiko has had good training in the Summer. IF she skates like this in the JO she should win!, so early on I thought that program was well polished.
Great for Camerlengo here, not many would go for Jeax De Eau from Cirque - such a soft and lyrical piece - suits Akiko's skating.
Her skating keeps on improving every year. She is just an incredible talent. The exhibition program version is a masterpiece already. I'm excited where she would take this program this year. I just noticed that she has so much more confidence now. "Jeax De Eu" suits her perfectly.
Wishing Akiko a super year this year!
Lovely choreographed program beautifully skated by Akiko. Her musicality is first rate and what I find missing in
a lot of skaters' programs. Kudos to Camerlengo for creating another brilliant program.
