    The entire thing is a farce. All the skaters should boycott NKH Trophy which is now officially "No matter what Mao Wins" Trophy!

    Akiko got robbed. My heart just broke for her then enraged. Mao was grossly gifted. This is embarrassing!

    Just saw Akiko's LP, and it was gorgeous. Wow.

    Here - not a great video, admittedly.

    I think if Japan doesn't win a ladies medal in Sochi, it'll be because they are clearly supporting the wrong skater based on a hope and a prayer. Since Akiko was going in as a the reigning NHK champ and the world bronze medalist, I don't get it.

    I think the PCS needs to be more influenced by the technical performance. It should already be like this, since a fall mars a program and thus a lower performance score should be given. There's no reason for the third component to be called "performance / execution" if "execution" isn't taken into account. 4 popped jumps deflates the artistic impact of a program and should be reflected in this mark (at the very least).

    Mao didn't even have much to say about herself and her jumps in the interview. Re her jumps, she just said not good.

    I'M angry. I really love Mao, but in this competition Akiko should have won. It seems the new system is bad, the judges can do whatever they want. I hope Mr Cinquanta saw this judging. I don't understand the judges, Akiko also Japanese...her victory would have been happy for Japanese people. And Mao would be in GPF with 3th place.

    It matters to JFS that skaters whom they support/favor win the worlds and in Olympics, but not that any Japanese skaters win.

    Yes, but Mao is the one they want to see win, not Akiko.

    It really raises one's blood pressure.

    Mao did lose the NHK trophy last year with a very good LP. This is the first time she wins this competition without deserving it. You are clearly overreacting

    Let's just be GLAD that the next Oly is in Russia, not Japan. Else Mao will be crowned the Oly Champ w/ only 2 triples and a slew of popped jumps just b/c she's Mao.

    Last year's loss was totally understandable. She skated like a zombie. And it's the last year's loss that's prompted this farce to ensure it never happens again.

    What an utter, utter joke. 2 GP events Akiko's been screwed over in.

    This current system was supposed to be more objective than 6.0 points era. And the first years it was successful but now it's just legalizing overscoring with the GOE thing. GOE is given according to name sometimes (like today) even though there are criteria for that. Even this was just a GP, not one of that big championships; it's a really bad situation for both Mao and Akiko, and all the lovers of the sport. Whatever the reason Mao has won, she did not deserve it clearly. One with naked eyes, without giving points or calculations, after watching both SP and LP would give the gold medal to Akiko and silver to Mao maybe even to Mirai. I (and most of people) think that Mao did not show that SP to earn 67 points though she deserved the lead. That was just a good program performed cleanly nothing perfect to get 67. There should be a room for others to catch her in LP. Anyway, we are just explaining what we think and I started to think that "it's useless" to really change something, unfortunately...

    At last year Nhk, you cannot compare this win victory to last year's.

    At 2011 NHK, in the FS, Mao got 6 ratified triples and Akiko got 5. The difference of ONE triple.

    Today, Akiko landed 6 triples and Mao landed 3. The difference is huge.


    Also, I thought Akiko edge calls at her Lutzes unfair.

    Akiko, I love you!
