    Nobunari Oda

    After a performance like this, this man needs a fan thread!

    In cased you missed it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkfzOPCFS88

    This was absolutely amazing and I'm glad he's going all in! He has such great knees and really awesome jumps. It's a shame he's better known for his math problems than his skating at times.

    Japanese Nationals will be a blood bath, but I think Nobunari can hold his own if he keeps skating like this! I hope he can get a World medal before he retires!

    ETA: This video is six minutes of heavenly triple axel goodness featuring praises from Paul Wylie, Dick Button and our favorite Eurosport commentators: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAVr9Scs0cE I hope Jason Brown got some tips while practicing with him!

    I think he did fantastic and it was great to see how happy he looked during his skating and afterwards. It just is bad, bad time to be a male japanese figure skater right now. Especially for the older ones. This is the last chance. When I think of Kozuka and when I think of Daisuke I really get nervous, especially after seeing what happened tonight at the Nebelhorn. Only the best survive. And the loosers are world class top skaters. Oh, the horror. At least, even if he doesn't get to go, Oda was at Olympics before.

    That is true, but Oda's Olympic experience probably wasn't the best with that weird shoelace incident. I think he'd like to return and redeem himself.

    I was so moved by his performance last night. Congratulations, Oda
    It is stiil beginning of the season, but I don't think I can watch Japanese Nationals in peace of mind.
    I wish it won't come forever

    Indeed! Nobu was such a joy to watch last night. I am so happy for him after having unfulfilled 2 seasons with unfortunate injury. Wish him a healthy/injury-free and great season throughout!

    And my feeling exactly, yude. I am scared to death already just thinking about upcoming J Nats. ><
    But don't cry, will you? We are such one lucky fan in the world to have so many talented skaters from our country, so let's rather appreciate it for the time being, shall we?

    And he was also a joy to watch in the SP at Nebelhorn to Cotton Club
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EquAlPY3xLo

    Two really wonderful performances!

    I hope someone posts his gala performance sometime.


    Just for fun, here's Nobu near the beginning of his career, skating to Super Mario at Skate Canada in 2007

    vrnoog1, vrnoog2, and vrnoog3 have quite a few Nobu videos.

    You'd never know that Nobu was seven years older than Jason. (Not saying that Jason looks old though....)
