    Rochette? I know that she's competed there before, but please tell me that this means that she's coming back!

    once again JSF demonstrates its immense love to Yuzuru by excluding him from $$$$ competitions systematically! Hope he will be added to the list in the near future!

    The reason why JSF chose Daisuke and Takahiko is very simple.

    1. The event is sponsored by a company which supports Daisuke. (Kinoshita Komuten)
    2. The event is promoted by IMG which Takahiko belongs to. (Mao too)

    How are the competitors chosen for this event? Are they invited? Or can they apply to take part?

    In fact JSF has a little or nothing to do with that. It's a purely commercial event with no official records that go neither to JSF nor ISU books. The invitation is issued by TV Tokyo, and their choice is based on one thing possible- money.

    What are you ranting about? Mao wasn't even on the list in 2011.

    Hehe. What a miss to see the prog with 5 falls (3 in 2011, 4 in 2012, so I expected 5 this time).

    I am disappointed.
