For the nobles of old days, the knowledge about the color layers was something very important that shows or proves their accomplishments and cultivation.

    I knew this as the knowledge on our history, and that the layers of colors had significant meaning for the people, but I checked it on the internet this time and gave up to explain it in summary.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tradit...olors_of_Japan

    I could not find this explanation about the color layers in English. This site is an amazing one with so much information. Maybe only experts can explain this to you.

    http://www.bb.em-net.ne.jp/~maccafushigi/mac/7.htm

    If you click 平安 (Heian) and 続 平安 (Heian continued) at the top of the page, it will give you some information about the clothes and color layers in Heian Period, although it is in Japanese.

    The green and purple used for Yuzuru's costume seem to be very classic Japanese colors to me. But, it is very unlikely the designer knew the meaning of colors when he or she chose them.

    I hope this will be some help.

    He visited elderly people living close to Fukushima in temporary cabins (did I choose the word correctly?). He said after hearing them saying that they really want to come back but there's nothing left there after tsunami hit he had realised the meaning of place where you were born, how it makes you feel safe and comfortable.

    Here is a low quality vid of the whole program.

    I think it has a ways to go before it's ready, -lacks of bit of substance at the moment.
    But I love the Choreo sequence and I think it's GOING to be great.

    Loving the detail of the costume with some close-up shots. I understand that the white/silver on competition ice may blend in too much, but I hope it doesn't change too much.

    (Very rough translation by me so feel free to correct me if there is something wrong.)

    Everyone!! this time I will speak about Yuzuru Hanyu-senshu as you guys know veeery well so I feel it is no need to say who he is

    I think Yuzuru-kun is a very independent and steady person for his age. when we are in training, in off-ices, in competitions like any time he looks like that.
    Seeing his attitude, I come to think of myself when I was in his age.

    I believe he will do his best and work hard as an Olympic champion this year as well.

    I would say his appealing points as a skater, Even as for the viewpoint of me as a female, he looks very beautiful on the ice.
    He is the type of skater who in advantageous to have not only the masculine powerfulness but also the feminine softness.

    As for when we are in off-ices, even if he is mature as you know, sometimes we are playing like kids.

    Since we are slightly from different generations then we have finally participated some competitions together recently.
    Probably we are going to talk a lot more and do our best together for the up-coming season.

    Needless to say, he is a great jumper par excellence and he can be my shining example for that.
    I think I could learn a lot from him so I am going to pay attention from now on
    BTW, Boxing is the sport that Mao wants to try most.

    It's a summary of what the interview with Yuzu will be about, but this bit struck me...

    ここまでの人生は子どものころに立てた計画通りに進んでいると語る羽生選手、トークはさらに今 後の人生設計 や選手引退後の進路にまで及びます。
    'My life so far has followed the plans I set up as a child' says Hanyu-Senshu. Then the talk turns to what he plans to do after retirement.

    At the end Yuzu did not smile or wave to the audience but stayed in SEIMEI character and put his fingers to his lips as he skated off stage. Too Cool!

    It's SO much better than when I saw it on DOI. I felt that the beginning choreo was changed or added to? I thought the Ina Bauer was a bit clumsy before but the Hydroblade right on the music was facing towards me, HAPPY!

    practice and interview with Oda Miki Akiko and Yuzu.

    In the second vid, you can see Yuzu stomping his foot and saying "Let me talk!!" to Nobu and Miki since they are talking when a question is addressed to Yuzu.

    Yuzu says he looooves gold things and gold leaf added to food and drink.

    "According to the music description in youtube, this piece of music is played in pray for other major disasters in Japan. Maybe someone can translate in summary to let people more understand the meaning of music"

    " requiem = In music, a Mass for one or more dead persons, containing biblical passages and prayers for the admission of the dead to heaven. The term has been loosely applied to other musical compositions in honor of the dead"

    "in a nutshell, Japan was hit by various natural disasters in 2011, not only by the March 11 disasters, but the KII peninsula was hit by huge flood. Some long-term fans of Yuzuru are saying that he must have chosen this music and renamed it for his EX, removing the specific reference to the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake, since -- incidentally-- Kobe and Nagaoka (the locations of the iceshows in July) also met huge natural disasters over the past 20 years. Deep, deep meaning is contained in the choice of the music..."

    such a thoughtful young man he is

    on a happier note (its debatable actually XD) another fanart of his costume

    This seems to be another version of the same music, uploaded more recently. I haven't made a comparison, but it's a minute shorter.

    It says the new costume resembles this one worn by Nobu but with more frills and the pants are black.

    Doki Doki in 2011
    Doki Doki in 2015
    Doki Doki by Mao and Kanako

    I think some of you have already known it but Yuzuru’s new book will be published this summer !?!


    Btw, It’s a very short interview when he was 16 years old haha. (was Translated by me, feel free to correct me)
    The interviewee : Would you try cross dressing one day?
    Yuzuru : Nothing doing! (laugh)

    Why?
    Yuzuru : No way no way!

    I think that looks great on you. (laugh)
    Yuzuru : No way no waay!

    You should succeed it as a tradition of the man from Tohoku (region).
    Yuzuru : No way no way no way! (laugh)
    Oh wait, you forget Honda (Takeshi) -san, he hasn’t done it yet!!
    but then, I just realised that he is a father (of his children).
    umm…It may not be a good thing for a father doing shch a thing.

    That’s it! so now it’s your turn, You would surely look good in a (woman’s) kimono.
    Yuzuru : Are you sure? really ? Oh noooooooooooooo

    I'm pretty sure I heard this song being sung during some of the practice videos for FaoI Kanazawa so he was probably the vocalist for those shows.

    (Yuzu)「まだ作ってる最中なので詳しくは言えませんけど、これからやろうと思っているのは新しいエキ シビジョンプログラムです。曲自体はボーカルも入ってなくて難しいんですけど、かなり感情を出 せるプログラ ムで…。それにこれまでの僕の経験とか、その時の気持ちとか感情を込めてやろうと思うんです。 ただ、歌詞が ないから受け取るみなさんの感情などは、多分僕のものとは違いますよね。でも僕はそれを一緒の ものにしよう とは思わないし、『これを受け取ってほしい』というのはないですね。もちろん振付の宮本賢二先 生との間では 『こういうイメージでやろう』というのは固まっているけど、僕が作り出すイメージはその時限り のものだから 、そのひとつ一つを感じてほしいなというのと、それを観たときに感じたものが少しでも記憶に残 ってくれれば と。僕の演技が記憶に残ってほしい、というまでのあつかましいことは言わないので(笑)。」

    (Q)「観た人たちがそれぞれに感じたものを、記憶に残して欲しいということですね。」

    (Yuzu)「そうなんです。僕の演技が映像に残れば何度も観てほしいですけど、アイスショーは試合じゃな くて1回しかないから。その時自分がナマで見て感じ取ったものというか、観ていて思い浮かんだ 風景や自分の 経験、または思い出だったり・・・。そういうものをすごく大切にしてほしいなと思っています。 」

    (Q)「観ている人たちの感情を触発するようなプログラムであり、演技なのですね。」

    (Yuzu)「はい、多分僕はどちらかというと今までいろいろ演技させていただいていて、何かメッセージを 伝えるというプログラムはあまり得意じゃないと感じているんです。バレエの先生とかいろんな方 にプログラム を見ていただいた時も、『自分に入り込みすぎるな。もっと周りに向けて表現しろ』と言われてま したから(笑 )。だからどちらかというと僕は周りに与えるのでなく、自分を表現することの方が得意だと思う んです」

    (Q)「それは去年も話していましたね。自分の中に入り込みすぎると。」

    (Yuzu)「そうですね。それでもっと外に出したいと思ってファントムを表現していたけど、結局は『その ファントムとは?』と言われたらやっぱり、自分の経験などを表現しようとしていたんだと思うの で。でも新し いエキシビのプログラムは自分の経験がかなり関わってくるものなので、自分のその時の心境を出 すためにも完 全に自分の中に入り込んでもいいなと思っているんです。自分の世界の中に感情や体を全部溶け込 ませるくらい に滑り込んでもいいなと…。だから、自分の生きざまじゃないけど、そういうのを観てくれた方々 がどう感じて くれるかというのをすごく楽しみにしているというか。いろいろな感じ方をして楽しんでもらいた いと思ってる んです。」

    I also a lot like this and this (I say about costume of course )

    As for the new EX costume, I think I already like that suits him and is too beautiful to resist in my eyes.

    First of all, thank you for reading the previous report or supporting me. I can continue to write thanks to you.

    (PART II)

    Part II is about SEIMEI

    (Costume)
    My friend said a minor change was made in his costume.
    The sleeves got larger in width, more like a Japanese traditional costume.

    (Jumps)
    4S (punk, 2S?) 4T(fall), 3F (o), 4T (fall), 3A-3T (o)
    He didn’t do well with his jumps that day. It was partly because of the ice. After finished, he skated towards the certain area and stroked the ice with his blades and hands.

    (Performance)
    In the show, what made me most surprised was his speed. Obviously he got more speed than in Makuhari. He was skating from one corner to another with an incredible speed.

    Further, his overall movements were sharper and more controlled and deliberate than in DOI.
    Coreo sequence got stronger and dramatic!

    The elements seemed to increase. But, the choreography itself impressed that it was on it’s way and far from the complete even though I knew some parts had not yet included. The overall impression will be much different in competitions.

    And ina bauer…. Someone had talked about ina bauer in SEIMEI. In terms of interpretation, it was well mixed in music and effective. Of course, it presented a kind of climax, but the feeling wasn’t as dramatic as in RJ2, Phantom or so.

    His spin.. In FaOI, there’s a master of spin. Of course it’s Stephan. His spin is truly masterpiece. Compared with Stephan’s, yuzu’s spin nearly reached Stephan’s level. Oh, it might be exaggerated…. Anyway, it was sure when it came to spin, both two stood out clearly.

    About music, it didn’t feel like so Japanesque. That’s partly because the other instruments than the Japanese traditional ones were used enough. The point I noticed was Japanese flute around 2:00 in this video . It sounded as if it came from far away. If he can make supernatural-like atmosphere around here, the program will be different.

    Throughout the show, he was apparently in different mode than in one at Makuhari I had previously saw him live. In Makuhari, he felt relaxed and amused himself and audience bringing back his old EX, and at “Believe”, he was skating happily and passionately. In Kanazawa, however, he felt a bit serious and was in a kind of competition mode. He might have switched his mode.

    Part III is other things about yuzu and show overall, other skaters. Show itself was great and high-quality entertainment more than Makuhari, I suppose. In Kanazawa, music was gorgeous and programs were better. I guess the layout of Kobe show will be almost the same, as Makuhari’ and Shizuoka’ were so. We can expect the broadcast of KOBE!

Still though, I wanted to share it with the members of this group as I focussed primarily on Yuzuru's two skates in the show. I will do one more for Kobe and that will complete the four city set. For me Fantasy on Ice really is the best show in Japan year after year, and I enjoyed it immensely. Hope that comes through in the video. Let me know what you think.

    Hope you enjoy!

    But it doesn't mean in competition he doesn't have great spin.
    For example his speed at WC 2012 SP was amazing: https://youtu.be/rjmKI_2fFpA?t=2m55s
    His spin in the LP was amazing too: https://youtu.be/Q0RBtPX2bLI?t=1m47s

    Or at Sochi: https://youtu.be/Bk6qrBrqAqo?t=1m50s
    That speed is insane. Or the final spin at Japan National FS 2014 before his surgery. His spin in the SP at WC Shanghai was top notch too.
    Or here, look at his spin at WTT, that speed is so https://youtu.be/OVlaDyTObkI?t=1m38s
    Or look at his spin in ice show, very well centered: https://youtu.be/1WN4UNO-6Ow?t=1m28s

    Japanese shrines usually sell varies kinds of charms for good-luck or protection (like this, https://www.google.co.jp/search?q=%E...IQsAQ&dpr=0.95 ).
    Of course, Yuzuruha shrine so.


    Yesterday, Yuzu looked into charms at the shop, but he bought none of them.
    The reason was, “I’ve already got all kinds of charms.”

    The story of the Vader Mask.
    Oda and friends a story in pictures.

    1. Got this Vader Mask from a Fan. Thank you so much!
    2. Authenticity, Check!
    3. 'Right this way, watch your step' The Polite Vader
    4-5. Vader wields the Force!
    6. Tired from expending too much force; a little massage.
    7. The mask is off, what to do!?
    8. The mask is stolen! A new Darth Vader...!!

    A pleasant day in the life of Darth Vader.

    "Hanyu-san is like a prince. He said he’d longed for a prince when he was a child.
    He wanted to put on a crown, but what his sister had was a tiara, so he did poses with her tiara on.

    This time, Sarah’s tiara reminded him of his younger memory. He did this lovely pose saying, “If she were a princess.. How about this?”

    He also admired Sarah’s tiara and corolla, so I’m happy."



    P.S. Sorry I was mistaken, I corrected my translation.
