    This is quite impressive. Seven triples including two 3lutz and two 2A-3T!

    Good score for Risa!
    Happy to see Kako Tomotaki so high, I really thought she should've gotten a JGP this year. Never seen Saya Ueno skate, how old is she? What is her skating like, any videos?

    Sad to see Yukiko Fujisawa so low, though

    Is Shion Kokubun not competing for a JW spot? How will they get decided?

    I'm so sad about Yukiko, Keiji too. I hope they move up in the FS.

    Usually junior worlds spots are decided by Junior nats but I think this year they're going to take senior nationals performances in to consideration as well.

    Kento Nakamura was definitely gifted.... IMO, unworthy of the title. Kihara's FS was perfect -- seven triples without the 3A. Uncharacteristic four falls from Uno. Tanaka has singled all 3A attempts. Probably the top 7 excluding Uno will be invited Sr Nationals.

    They will select the most appropriate athletes from (1) Top 3 of JGP standings, (2) Top 3 of Junior Nationals, (3) Top 3 of junior skaters competed at Senior Nationals, (4) Top 3 of world standings.

    Kokubun fills the first condition, but the placements at Sr Nationals will be the most important criteria.

    Satoko Miyahara did 7 triples in the free and that's more than impressive for a novice lady. Received quite a few underrotation calls in the last few competitions though, I hope she will improve on the rotation issue. Currently she's so tiny and neither of the powerful type like how Midori was nor of the skinny, long limbed type, I wonder how she will turn out when the puberty hits her.

    Protocols
    SP http://www.skatingjapan.jp/National/...r/data0203.pdf
    FS http://www.skatingjapan.jp/National/...r/data0205.pdf

    Four ladies landed 3-3s in the SP (Shoji, Nitaya, Kemanai, and Miyahara's 3T-3T wasn't clean).
    Shoji has "e" on both flip and lutz.
    Oba's 2A-3Lo is very solid now.
    Tomotaki's consistency is outstanding. She has no jump error in last 3 competitions.
    Miyahara skated a visibly clean 7 triples FS with the highest TES.
    Nishino has underrotated most of the jumps. Still the judges are favoring her.

    According to a 2CH source, eight ladies and men are invited to Sr Nationals (down to 9th places, Kemanai and Tanaka, excluding novices).

    Yukiko

    What happened? Did she fall/pop her jumps in the SP (well..she obviously did). How was her LP? I see it wasn't that solid of a score either...what's going on with her?

    NMURA, do you mind if I cross post this at FSU?

    Do you know if there will be any television coverage, btw?

    Shoma really has the potential, but I'm worry about his jump technique.

    Shoma's biggest problems is his height (only 138cm).

    Plus I don't think he's a talented jumper. He didn't have consistent 2axels until last season. Even for men, the hurdle of the 3A can't be passed without natural talents. It's too early to place much expectations on him.

    Well, considering he didn't even have a consistent 2A until last season, he's made a lot of progress this year. His 2A is very consistent now, and he has all the triples up through the lutz. It's true that he doesn't jump especially high, but that may have to do with his height. Maybe when he finally grows a bit taller, he will have more strength and spring in his jumps too. Takahashi and Oda are not tall either, and they are doing very well competitively.

    Holy triple loop, this girl did a 2A-3R combo and got 1.12 GOE. Her solo loop also got good GOE. Now I want to see this combo.

    Her jumps are quite low, but it was rotated IMO.

    I found this article today.

    There are lots of pictures of Japanese Junior skaters.
    I especially love the pictures of the medalists who looked really happy.
