OMG Mao won!
When is the last time that a novice won junior nats in singles? Has it ever happened?

JSF is able to send two ladies to junior worlds. I would love for it to be Mone and Rion
We are in a weird situation because by the rules, the winner is guaranteed a spot and the other spots are given after senior nats. But the winner is a novice so she can't go. That means no one is guaranteed a spot. Everything will be decided after seniors nats. So Rion, Mone, Hana and even Azusa and Ayumi all have a chance for the two spots since senior nats has the last word.

Mao won Novice last year. But, finished in third place in Jr. Nationals behind Rino and Hana. So, this is actually her first Junior title. She sure is a firecracker. But, for me, Rion was the most artistic and engaging performer. She solidified her selection to the Grand Prix Jr. Finals.

You are talking about the future i guess.
Because last year she was 3rd.
Sorry! I mixed it up with her seed skater status...or I should change that to 2 consecutive years' winner of NvA girls'!

Interesting? I thought Rion would be given the spot by default. I bet they never expected a Novice to be this good when coming up with these rules. I think I will be rooting for Rion, Mone and Azusa for these two spots. Hana is the most talented with the 3A, but, I’m not as engaged in her programs this year. This was an awesome competition. Looking forward to Senior Nationals.

Also, we shouldn’t overlook Ami, as she will make it to Senior Nationals grabbing the sixth spot and maybe by then, she will land the 3A.

perhaps 2 3As are too demanding? Hana definitely has the ability to jump clean 3A.
Maybe. Her FS with one 3A at Konoshita cup was amazing. She scored more than 130. And at regionals (or was it sectional?) she went almost clean with two 3As.
If she can repeat that with a clean SP, she can get the highest placement among juniors at senior nats.

Poor Tanaka. Looks like she really wanted this medal. And it was indeed quite close. Her tears in K&C are heartbreaking.

Rion was in tears too, as she made many mistakes in her free skate. But, when she saw her result, you could tell she was happy with the result.

(Note on Kikuchi~
I thought his struggle over the last two seasons to return to form was primariy due to growth
However in a post to his sisters instagram account it was revealed that he had been suffering from injuries over the last year
Still lots to improve on but it's nice (and a relief) to at least see him landing jumps again, looking a bit more confident, and smiling after a performance
Komaba-sensei's tears in the KnC after his SP says it all

@tsuyoboogie , thank you for all uploads. You're really a life saviour.
If it's not a problem, can I still ask for Yo Takagi's performances? I never saw her and looks like she did really well here.
