He has a good chance of medal or even gold at GPF if he prepares well for it. To give away the chance for the exam is If I were him I wouldn’t do that.
    To me, a National champion is bigger than a GPF champion at least in the country any skater belongs to. So it's understandable if Hanyu wants to focus on Japan Nationals more than GPF. Then after the JN, he can focus on the Worlds.

    ie After this I want to return (where? not clear) and practise.
    He certainly didn't say in this clip that he wanted to CONTINUE practising HERE IN SENDAI.

    well it depends on which national title, we are talking about!

    in this case i think the Japanese nationals (especially Men's competition) is probably going to be more intense then worlds, japan has such an incredibly deep field, just looking at how many of the Japanese men made it to the finals says it all, so i agree I think the Japanese national title is worth just as much as a GPF title, when looking at who is competing there, there is little wonder why japanese nationals is one of the most exciting nationals to watch (atleast or me), I wonder why such an important competition isn't aired live? it's really such an important competition and i wish they would stream the same way that the GP events are streamed, i always have a hard time finding out how I'm suppost to watch this competition!

    Will it be shown on Japan TV, which is on a number of cable providers in the US? NHK was shown. (Check the International channels from your provider to find out which channels are available. You could add it for the month of December )
