    I think Marin is the better skater. She lands her 3-3 quite frequently. She is the one with more musical and artistic. Miyu's double jumps are usually short on rotation. Her speed is too slow. But she is definitely kawaii, plus she smiles most of the time. Love them all but I think siblings from the same age group usually have a hard time to be both successful. Soon their parents will need to decide to left some out.

    Well sure, Marin certainly should be better! She is what, 11 or 12? And Miyu is 9?

    Will it always be that way though? Maybe, maybe not.

    No I mean their skills. Back when Marin was 9 didn't she already have 2A and some triples. Anyway, FS pool in Japan is so deep. Both of them might not survive the competitive others. Who knows!

She is cho-kawaii and she sure knows how to charm an audience, play to the cameras, and put on a show!

    out of them I think Marin is gonna make it big,Miyu seems more into acting/TV personality
    Marin is also training 3A & 4T,I really think she's going to be the one to lead the japanese ladies to Pyeongchang,she may even have a chance of a medal there

    of course all 4 of them are adorable,but to me Marin is the 'special' one

    I said it before, no matter what they're going to do with Murakami and Miyahara, it will be just an act waiting for Marin to reach senior level. The kid has so much star power and talents. They will put her in the driving seat as soon as she reaches the age of 15. Marin will be the one to pull the Julia's phenomenon during 2018 OG.

    i agree, marin has so so so much talent!! the first time i watched her i was blown away by both her technique and maturity at such a young age! the only problem now is puberty... it always manages to kick the brightest potential stars hard in the butt if they're not careful

    Oh, I see! I don't know what jumps Marin was doing at that age.
    I've seen Miyu jumping 2A's already, but I don't know if she's got any triples yet.

    So happy too to see the Oda family (I assume the lady to Nobunari's right holding one child is his wife).
