    I wonder usually when would the host decide the host pick? before the GP serials begin, or after it? Anyway he defiantly need a good start to begin his first senior season, in order to get the NHK pick..... Well, I believe that our boy can do it!

    September is usually the deadline I believe. It would be posted somewhere on the ISU website.

    I'm probably being a bit too pessimistic as a fan, but I don't expect to see him at NHK for now, at least not just yet. I mean, I do expect him to do great at Skate America and I'll be praying for him and all, but not to the point of hoping him to podium there, yet. (but who knows I'd appreciate it if he proves me wrong! but I don't want to pressure him too much in his first senior year.)
    It depends on how well he does or others do, firstly at their Senior Camp in mid-July, and secondly his results in Skate America. If he has a chance - even slightly like just 1% - to advance to GPF, then I do believe he will get NHK without a problem. Otherwise, I'm afriad JSF wants to give the spot to someone else. That said, they probably don't know yet either until they check out all the candidates at the camp. There are several of them, including Daisuke Takahashi, who publicly stated that he'd like to try to take part in the Worlds this season last month, and he currently has no GPS spot).

    Right. Skate America is a difficult field and I don't expect Koshiro at a podium (on the other hand, in the beginning of the season everything is possible ). But there are no many skaters to take the NHK spot. Certainly, Daisuke can get it if he's ready to compete in the first half of the season, but I don't think he takes part in the camp in mid July as he's been preparing his great show. So there is only Mitsuki Sumoto who can get the spot as I believe the rest of juniors stay junior next season. But of course its just my assumption and JFed. can do anything. Just wish Koshiro a strong senior debut .

    Daisuke goes to world........OMG.......this possibility freaks me out a little bit , since he is basically as the same age as Steph, Koshiro’s coach .......

    Talking about the NHK..I think the JSF gets to decide it before the GPs begin.....So instead of the result of SA(which is important for sure cause it is Koshiro’s senior As debut), it may more depends on the senior and all Japan camp, and earlier Bs........ But still, he needs to be in a really really good shape at the start of the season to have a slight chance...

    To be honest, considering his age, he can theoretically remain in Junior for another two years if he wants.... since the team chooses to move to senior this year and faces a lot more challenges, I won’t (and to be honest, shouldn’t) expect that everything will go perfectly smooth..... I hope he can get another assignment for his first GPs, but if it doesn’t end up happening, it is alright and I will just finger cross he will do well in SA (and probably let JSF regret about their decision)

    the things like “facing a brutal field in SA and JP national” .....well that is the whole point of moving to senior, isn’t it ? Like Dima and Deniss( my another two favorites) , they moves to Senior at a relative earlier year (esp for Deni who theoretically can still do Junior last season ) Their senior trips, (which include both the highlights in 1718 season and the hardship in last season) makes them become mature both as a skater and as a person....... Next season’s result is important, since JP is such a competitive field that you need to do extremely well in order to get the chances of competing, but what’s more important is to get more experience, keeping growing and moving forward , getting prepare for.....let’s dream big, 2022’s Olympic in Beijing

    島田高志郎 高難度4回転ルッツ成功「将来的に組み込みたい」

    Koshiro Shimada succeeded in 4Lz, wanting to have it (in his program) in the future (= not yet, for now)
    July 15, Monday by Sponichi Annex

    <Team Japan FS Senior Camp> Koshiro Shimada practicing jumps under Stephane Lambiel's coaching
    (Photo taken by Yutaka Nagakubo)

    Figure Skating Team Japan opened their intensive camp to the public on July 15th at Ice Arena of Chukyo University in Toyota, Aichi. Koshiro Shimada (17 yrs old, Kinoshita Group) revealed that he had succeeded in 4Lutz. "I landed one this summer, completely clean," he said and told us of the outlook that he would like to have one (in his programs) if/when it becomes stable in the future.

    When Briand Ghislain, who coaches two-time Olympic champion, Yuzuru Hanyu, visited Switzerland where Shimada trains, he succeeded in 4Lz. After receiving the last mental advice from Coach Ghislain (after some physical advice), saying "I know you can land it next time," he made it.

    Regarding this season, "3A is quite stable and I have 2 of them in my program. I'm working hard to make 4T and 4S stable too," Shimada said with confidence. His SP is "Stay" by Oliver Tompsett. The choreographer is a Canadian female dancer whom he got to know through Stephane Lambiel's connections. His Free is "Artist", the one the departed Denis Ten once used and it is choreographed by Coach Lambiel.

    Small update:
    Koshiro will be training at the senior camp till 16th, and then he goes back to his hometown, to meet the local governor of Ehime prefecture on July 19th and to receive some kind of honorary award, called "Ehime's Culture and Sports Award". (Nothing too big and very many local athletes have received it before. It's sort of a customary award for top athletes who are from Ehime, this local government just loves giving this award away and they of course couldn't leave Koshiro alone either!) I'm expecting to see some local news covering him soon too.
