    Yuzu’s first DVD/Blu-ray album - ”Time of Awakening” has totally sold 70,000 copies in its 45 days of release. (* start from July 16 to August 29)

    According to Fuji TV, the publisher of album on August 30, the reasons for hot sales are not only the popularity of Yuzu, but also the high evaluation to the contents that attracted over 215 comments in Amazon Japan.

    This fanwork reminds me of a quote printed in Yuzu's T-shirt: "In the end, Life doesn't matter how many breaths you take, but how many moments take your breaths away."

    Also, here's the Yuzu's Sendai Tourism PR Poster from NHK Touhoku. He wrote "Welcome to my hometown. Sendai!!" in English and signed it too! Good job! He looks really cute! Apparently they have printed 1000 copies and it will be distributed throughout Sendai and also in souvenir shops in Tokyo and America, etc?! I wonder if they'll also have one in Toronto as well.

    By the way, Asahi TV has purchased the broadcast right of Finlandia Trophy. So we may watch Yuzu's first tourament in HQ video.

    This "Haru Yo Koi" is one of my favorite songs, and it is so touching.
    The lyrics are written in a bit classic Japanese, and it matches to the story of Yuzu and Nanami sensei very much.

    I also found an English version. Although English lyrics are very good, not exactly the same as Japanese ones.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lykhh52NEXk

    So, brave me. I tried myself.

    Haru Yo Koi

    Caught in shower lit with soft light
    Winter Daphne, bringing back memories of you
    Buds with flowing tears
    Start delivering a scent one by one
    It will come across the sky
    It will come over to you someday
    Spring, I’m still waiting it to come all the way. When I close my eyes,
    I’ll feel you near, who gave me love, your voice with old memories

    My heart has been left at you
    Still longing for reply
    Even so many years later,
    Waiting for ever, and ever
    Beyond tomorrow
    It will reach there someday for sure
    Spring, I’m longing for it yet to see. When I stop walking, being lost,
    Gentle gaze of you who gave me dreams will embrace my shoulders

    Dreams, shallow dreams, here still I am
    Thinking about you, I’m just walking alone
    Like flowing rain, like flowing flowers

    Spring, I’m still waiting it to come all the way. When I close my eyes,
    I’ll feel you near who gave me love, your voice with old memories

    Spring, I’m longing for it yet to see. When I stop walking, being lost,
    Gentle gaze of you who gave me dreams will embrace my shoulders



    I'm very sorry I'm not a poet at all

When Yuzu jumps, he spins fast, he can sense his position in the air and he can prepare himself for landing. He says Yuzu is very focus on his training and will keep on practicing until someone tells him to stop. He also talks about Yuzu is a cheerful person who plays kendama all the time.

    article about akiko suzuki
    she mentioned yuzuru's advise on how to deal with the crowd that was chanting "russia, russia" tremendously during sochi games.
    Quote Originally Posted by annca View Post

    Quote Originally Posted by ayarose View Post

She asked Yuzu for advice on how it was to help them who will perform after him. She was concerned with the Russian crowds intense cheering even if the one skating aren't Russian and though it's understandable she felt it was a disadvantage. It felt like being on an "away - match" in soccer terms, meaning they don't have the home advantage.

    Yuzu said that they should be careful because the loud cheering prevents them from hearing the announcement before and after the skates as well as the trainers/choreo/coaches instructions. So she asked what they should do, and he answered that they should imagine that the "Russia call" is the crowd cheering for them. In this case, Yuzu laughingly said "Hanyu, Hanyu". Akko's not sure if he was kidding or not, but she can't fit Hanyu & Russia in her head. But laughing made them relax/calm down a bit.

    She said that Yuzu has a strong mentality and is concerned for others as well.

    It appear that this series will have a continuation although I think it's more of Akko's experience so we might hear stories about other TJ members.

    In his first tweet, he said he hasn't chosen the cover picture yet. He also said all the pictures in the photobook are in poster format and those that he never published before and the size is a little bit smaller than A2.

    In his second tweet, he said he has provided those pictures he took from Finlandia to Sendai TV station. The station made those posters for NHK Trophy. He has those posters on display in his office now and it will be displayed in subway stations as well.

Johnny talked a few things about his work with Yuzu. The female tailor with him makes all costumes he designed, of course including Yuzu’s R&J 2 one.

    Johnny recalled Yuzu gave him a dress code: the style of Johnny wearing in Vancouver Olympics. He designed three costumes, and Yuzu made the final decision.

    Watch the Yuzu’s part from 37min 25sec.

    One article interested me was what Keiji Tanaka said at the Yukata party this summer, where Yuzuru, Ryuju, and himself had joined together.

    "When getting tired, Yuzuru becomes hyper and most noisy of the three. Ryuju is always flat and calm. I myself become depressed."

    When Yuzuru is too talkative, it might be a sign of fatigue

    During the photo-shoot when they had him hold the stick, he said that he really likes this, as when he was a child, he'd hold a vacuum cleaner pipe end and pretend it was a sword.

    He was asking lots of questions about the monsters, but they weren't allowed the information yet. It was a secret.
    He said being able to play the game before the release was really great!

    For a leader of game creation, it should be excited to meet a heavy game player and gets responses directly for his game development. No wonder some tweeters said Yuzu was not to shoot advertising, but to participate in MH fan meeting.

    "Yes. I want to give him another gold medal beside the competition."

    Hanyuu to miss his first event this season, injures back during practice

    It has been reported (understood) that Sochi Olympics Men's Figure Skating Gold Medalist Yuzuru Hanyuu (19, ANA Skating Club) will be missing out on his first event of this season this October (Finlandia Trophy).

    According to JSF's chairman (?) Hidehito Ito (52), Hanyuu has incurred a myofascial lower back pain, and has submitted his notice of withdrawal (refusal) together with a medical certificate last 17 September. Furthermore he said that this will not affect Hanyuu's appearance at the Grand Prix Series' 3rd Cup of China in November

    Usually, when we say 国内 (kokunai), it means domestic, that is "in Japan". Where is he now then?

    Or, did the reporter make a mistake, it should have been カナダ国内 - "in Canada" ?

    The second paragraph:

    According to Hidehito Ito, Chairman of the Figure Skating Division of JSF, Hanyu had the pain in the training, and this withdrawal is just to take extra precaution, prepared for the Cup of China (Shanghai, in November), the 3rd competition of GP Series. The medical certificate states that he needs bed rest, with a limited light exercise. Hanyu said in August, "Injuries are the biggest concern. I know I should have a sort of courage to take a rest (when necessary)."

    Sorry, the last part 休む勇気も持てたらいい is difficult to translate, but I hope the above explains the meaning.

    Hanyu Yuzuru Absence From Of First Competition This Season
    Back Bones Deformation
    Required 4 Weeks of Bedrest

    On the 23rd, Japan Skating Federation has announced that Hanyu Yuzuru (19)(ANA), men figure skate gold medalist from Sochi Olympics, has withdrawn from Finlandia Trophy (opening on Oct 10, Espoo, Finland).

    According to authorized personnel, due to deformation of his intervertebral disc on his back, he requires 4 weeks of bedrest. Hanyu, currently located in Toronto, Canada, is said to be refraining from practice. If his condition is not improving, he might have to withdraw from Grand Prix (GP) Cup Of China (Shanghai) opening on November 7.


    This article sounded more serious than the rest of the articles. I honestly hope this is not true and he will recover fully before COC.

    Jeffrey Buttle told his concept of choreography in World Figure Skating No 65 (published on August). This is a long but readable article. Sorry I can just make a summarized translation in this part rather than a full one last weekend.

    https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.n...738a305eaac758

    Jeffrey watched Yuzu’s emerging status so carefully. When choreographing the Ballade 1 program, he tried to put aside all mundane affairs Yuzu was bearing, and then keep one theme –

    On ice, only skating;
    On ice, only a Yuzuru Hanyu as skater, not a Hanyu with any title.

    Somehow I think Yuzu is very lucky to meet good coaches, training mates since all the way. Now I’m even glad to see his choreographer also put his sensible and considerate feeling in this program.
    Q: The initial scene, Yuzuru was not moved for a while. He listened to the music with standing motionless. Audience has also been drawn to the music at same time. What's the intention of choreography you tried to tell?

    A: At beginning of music, piano voice was very strong. Although I tried to make some moves at first, none of them was suitable. It was difficult to tell a theme of the program in first 20 seconds. So, I tried to keep him still.

    Theme of the program would be determined by it. The attention of everyone gathered on him, standing in the middle of ice, even the faint sound of pin fall was also likely to hear.

    This is the message that I wanted to draw.

    After the Olympics, he was in the condition like octopus pulling, requests have been also come from here and there and focused on him. When I listened to the introductory part of music, Yuzu was been pulling into all directions, and his figure under the strains was floated to my mind. Thus, I just wanted to tell the music itself.

    When the moment he began to move, no matter how many obligations to bear and how much work that required his physical strength and time, the special moment of him only on ice has begun. And all the other things would be getting better -- It is not just symbolized such a thing, and it is also for all skating.

    In addition, he chose of jumping 4T in the second half. This is a decision that should be respected, and it was also matching well to the music.

    Yuzuru, what do you mean exactly by 滑っている感覚 Subette iru kankaku?

    Although I put “feel or sense while skating”, if anyone has any idea, please just advise me.

    WORLD FIGURE SKATING 65:

    Yuzuru Hanyu:

    I believe we have no measure.
    (Part 1/5 - maybe )

    Question: You are doing a sort of ice show marathon in this off-season.
    Yuzuru: Never ending show rush (laughs). Once it is settled, I will be able to be back to Toronto and finally start my practice.
    Q: You have unveiled your SP of the new season, “Chopin Ballade No. 1”, before others. It is a very difficult composition with 3A at the beginning, and 4T as well as 3Lz+3T in the latter half of the program. It seems to be a program to open a new door in the aspect of expression.
    Y: Its choreographer is Jeffrey Buttle and we left everything to Jeff, including the selection of music as well as the choreography. The sense or feel while skating is what I place the most importance on. As to the sense while skating, I’m feeling this SP is very difficult. In the first place, since it is a piano piece, I think I must make it structured, being conscious of the posture, toes, etc.
    Q: Is it OK now for you to talk about your FP?
    Y: Yes. My new FP is “Phantom of the Opera,” with the music arranged according to the story of Phantom.
    Q: Did you select the music?
    Y: I always loved the music of “Phantom of the Opera.” It became my favorite when I saw the film “Phantom of the Opera” in my music class that I was taking as an elective class of the second grade of junior high. It gave me a strong impression, and I have kept saying to my coach(es?) that I want to use it. But, as there are so many skaters have used it including men’s skaters such as Patrick and Daisuke, there had not been a chance. I can use it at last. Also, lyrics are allowed to be used from this season, and I thought it might give a fresh image.
    Q: Do you have a different feel when skating to music with lyrics?
    Y: I don’t think there is much difference. Because what we actually do would not be different at all. The impression of music might be different, or the facial expression of the skater might become easier to grasp. I read an interview of Tatsuki Machida in a magazine, and I am quite agree with him, that is, there is a possibility that lyrics would constrain skaters, for example, in case a sad melody has cheerful lyrics, the skater might need to make a cheerful facial expression. Lyrics could extend the skater’s range of expression, but, there is also a possibility they could narrow the range. I think it all depends on the person who uses the music.
    Q: Is there any part or aspect that you go into the program story through lyrics?
    Y: I’m not so conscious of lyrics myself. Although there are many parts choreographed with an awareness of lyrics, when it comes to whether I would only perform the role of Phantom, the answer may be “No”. It’s not everything. I may be trying to catch the background sound of the song for sure. Actually, this is what we have to develop further for the last-minute details after this, but I don’t think lyrics would affect that much.
    Q: Who is the choreographer?
    Y: Shae-Lynn (Bourne). It had proceeded between Brian and Shae-Lynn while I was unaware (laughs). It was not me who intended to request her, but Brian was thinking about Shae-Lynn (as the choreographer) since last year, and invited her to the Cricket Club in January. Brian was so willing to make me perform her program, and it was like having been decided to Shae-Lynn almost before I realized it.
    Q: Is that for learning new things?
    Y: I think so. It was the first time I worked with her, and it was actually difficult. The first thing I felt difficulty was that we had to start from talks like; “What moves are you good at?” As for SP, Jeff has choreographed for me once, and we kept polishing it up for 2 years. It is true that it was easier for me really to do his new program as well.

    A new video message right in time!! He says "hisashiburi" or "long time no see", yes it has been a long time!! He says he received a lot of support from so many fans (regarding his injury) and although he's nervous, he will try his complete and utter best (isshokenmei) for the NHK cup.

    Thank you smasma for the links to that magazine! I still struggle to read so many kanji

    LOL. But it's the piece (song) I always wanted, so I want to really put my feelings into it.
