    The Personal Best and Season Best scores that the ISU uses for a skater only take into consideration certain competitions. For example, they do not take into consideration domestic competitions, such as Sectional, Regional or National Championships.

    However, confusion arises when you come to the Major International Championships and the Senior B’s.

    For the Majors, the ISU definitely takes into consideration the events they run themselves, and the Olympics. But, there does not seem to be any consistency over how they approach other events that are considered to be Majors.

    And as for the Senior B’s, it is particularly confusing as an event may be taken into consideration one year, but not the next. Much of this is due to the changing make-up of the Challenger Series.

    So, to make things simpler, the table below takes into consideration all the events that the skater has taken part in. These scores are referred to as “Absolute Personal Best” and “Absolute Season’s Best” so as to distinguish them from the scores recorded by the ISU.

    Absolute Personal Best Score Absolute Season’s Best Score

    The Absolute designations are based purely on the contents of the Competitive History table in this post. If anybody knows of any scores that are not in the table, please let me know, and we will be only too happy to add them in.

    As always when comparing scores, it should be kept in mind that you are not comparing like for like. There is a subjective aspect to judging, and every competition has different judges.

    Shoma Uno

    Shoma is still small but has a bright future once gets a consistent 3A
    an explosive and mini Daisuke in the making. he will be up there with Yuzuru in the coming years
    and he is very popular in Japan like Yuzuru

    Thanks for starting this thread. I became a fan of his after watching this perfromance of his at MOI in 2013.
    He needs to up his tech but my goodness he has everything else. He received Level 4 in spins and footwork
    in both SP and FP.

    Teasing aside, Shoma is one of the younger skaters I'm looking forward to the most, he's so fast and smooth on the ice!
    And he has said he idolizes Yuzuru- or maybe that he wants to follow in his footsteps? My japanese isn't that great Definitely something along those lines, though.

    Shoma is one of the few junior that really stands out! He has always had a great personality from the very beginning and really reminds a little Takahashi in terms of musicality! The only thing that worries me is his little figure. I don't know how much the judges can appreciate his performances since he's so tiny and everything he does is so tiny too... As long as he skates among junior it's relative but with the seniors the difference'll be bigger I see the same problem with the other japanese raising star Miyahara

    He can glide out of his jumps so nicely And the positions at 2:38 are creative.
    Giving that rose away to the woman in the audience was especially cute

    Does anyone know if he's moving up this season? I'm hoping he'll stay junior for now and work on his 3A, I don't want him to get lost in the senior mix

    well he hasn't been assigned any senior GPs, unless JSF uses their last NHK host pick on him. But it's very likely that the host pick could go to Keiji, so I think we can expect him to stay in juniors this season.

    He's assigned to JGPs so far. But even if he goes to NHK it's only gonna be a one-time thing since he won't get a spot for 4CC and least of all Worlds.

    I have to say I love his spins and the smooth gliding on the ice. He's channeling Dai a lot in this program and that's very cute to see but at the same time he has his own personal style.

    Also, I looove his cantilever.

    Shoma landed a 4T! Slightly underrotated but still, it's a progress.

    I don't know if it is my feeling only but he is looking on this video like young Yuzuru

    Nice attempt on quad, very light. I am actually quite surprised on flexibility of this jump. Last time when I saw his performance at junior worlds he was looking quite heavy on jumps. Nice progress

    I actually thought he looked a lot like Daisuke, especially just before doing the quad.

    But that may be just me, because I see Shoma channeling Daisuke many times.

    I have to admit I didn't expect to see such a good quad attempt from Shoma, especially knowing that the 3A is still giving him a lot of trouble. He probably won't put it in his programs yet but I do hope he manages to get a fully rotated and consistent one in the future. After seeing this, I've gotten high hopes for his 3A success as well.

    Meanwhile, what he really needs to do is fix his flutz. It's the most important thing for him right now.

    I'd say that Shoma's 4T looks more rotated than Nam's 4S right now. I cried tears of joy when I read that Shoma landed a quad in practice. Maybe landing quads will have a good effect on his 3As? Maybe he'll actually rotate and land his 3As??? I can only hope.
    But yes, he needs to fix his flutz. Especially because I think the lutz is the required jump for the junior men's SP this season.

    Ooooooh maaaai gaaado... Is Shoma practicing quads already? Looking at the vid, he's landing it almost. Wow! Ilia has done wonders to Shoma! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Ilia! And Shoma's grown up quite a bit, isn't he? Now he is probably the only skater who grabs my heart with its skate among the current J-boys after Daisuke. Good luck to him in the new season!

    I am only thinking wishfully. He may be one of those skaters that never really get their triple axels down sighs. He's my hope for the future of Japanese mens and I want him to do well this season.

    Wow I'm pleasantly surprised at his 4T. I was expecting it to be pretty rough, but that was pretty nice
