an impressive program, soft and adorable .. the best choice she made for last season .. miss you a lot, Akiko! the only skater really "artistic" for the last time
love love love her. heart and soul, fast, deep knees, so musical. so what if jumps are tough at 28. She loves to perform and it feels like she is Japan's MK. Japan has had a string of amazing ladies, but I love her. Not special? I disagree.
What is the music please?
I preferred the pink dress, though... This looks too "dark" for this soft, romantic music
Aww, look at her charming, beautiful face and the impression lights up immediatlyOriginally Posted by FSGMT
(Saying: Akiko is one of those few ladies who can wear anything. She makes her dress look beautiful, she doesn't need it the other way around )
She mesmerizes as no other can.
christinaskater, I'm with you... love your dedication
Maturity and grace, unburdened by the need to "impress" yields such satisfying performances for the viewer
I thought she looks stunning and she finished all of her movements nicely in POTO, but I wish it is something more special. It's like she watched what D/W are skating to and decided to skate to the same music.
O is her absolute best and one of the best programs. Definitely worthy of an olympics medal if she skate cleanly.
Love her programs!!!!! I so loved her LP last year, and miss it (and so sad she didn't place higher at worlds with that amazing program and costume). But, call me happy today seeing these new programs - lovely!!!
