    Translation of Interviews with Yuzuru Hanyu at NHK

    I'll roughly translate it. I'm using this video but it starts half way. If you have another video, please share. The one with some foreign language commentary makes it hard to catch Hanyu's words.

    Hanyu: I was a little tired in the 2nd half.
    Interviewer: What was your condition in the 2nd half?
    Hanyu: I was able to perform quite well in the first half, but I got tired in the 2nd half.
    Interviewer: Were you affected by the jump?
    Hanyu: The jump did greatly affect me, but falling on the spin was not good, so I have to practice much much more.
    Interviewer: Your reaction after the free looked totally different from that in SA.
    Hanyu: I went into the free with a different mood and I practiced a lot this time so I had confidence going into the free.
    Interviewer: Your senior Takahashi Daisuke almost made a comeback, how do you feel about that?
    Hanyu: I could hear the cheering before my turn, and I thought he must have done well, so I relaxed a little and I think I was able to concentrate better thereafter.
    Interviewer: How do you feel about winning Takahashi?
    Hanyu: I don't feel like I have won him, but I did well in both sp and fs, so perhaps that's why I won.
    Interviewer: This time's competition is in Miyagi, how do you feel about it?
    Hanyu: On the bus, what I saw made me feel like ah this is where I lived, so I was quite calm.
    Interviewer: Next is the GP final, a big meet, how do you want to perform?
    Hanyu: I am very happy that 4 Japanese men are going to GPF, so I won't feel nervous and I won't feel foreign, so I want to perform better and to a higher level.
    Interviewer: I look forward to it. Thank you.
    Hanyu: Thank you.

    ETA I found another interview not sure which is the one you want.

    Interviewer: Congratulations.
    Hanyu: Thank you.
    Interviewer: This loud cheer, and your first NHK win, how do you feel?
    Hanyu: Frankly, I feel that I could have done better in my SP (!!!), but my movements are smoother than in SA, which I think is owed to everyone's support.
    Interviewer: Was there a big plus that this competition was held in your hometown?
    Hanyu: Yeah, I feel thankful to be in my hometown and I can feel calm in this environment so I could relax. Even though I didn't do very well, I think I did good.
    Interviewer: Takahashi caught up quite a bit, how do you feel?
    Hanyu: Well this is my hometown, and a lot of people came to watch, so I thought that if I harnessed the crowd's cheer and support and skate till the end, everything should go smoothly.
    Interviewer: Your 1st half was very good.
    Hanyu: Yeah, but I tripped in the salchow, but I stood up most jumps, but I got a little tired in the 2nd half, so I think I need to practice more.
    Interviewer: So GPF is decided, and a lot of fans are looking forward to it, may I have your thoughts?
    Hanyu: Getting first and going to GPF is a very good feeling and I'm very happy that I could win NHK in my hometown.

    I will translate the documentary if I have time.
