I really want to see Riverdance with Kazuki and Rika H.! Hope someone posts it! Sounds like it was a fun show!
Saaaaaaaaaame!
You can see a picture of the collab here (and another from La La Land): https://twitter.com/KazukiGIFs/status/1421517386180546564
Kazuki wasn't wearing his original Riverdance costume, but the two of them riverdancing while holding hands? Looks iconic 🤩

According to reports, he did Cinepara with a new costume, but I haven't come across any pictures yet.

Here's a nice group pic! https://twitter.com/ctveventkawa/status/1421727710343143428

The text says 'Cinepara new costume' though, sorry :console: Does Kazuki have a habit of changing costumes mid-season? I don't think so? ... Oh my, the two main onsen boys are really not making us too happy these days, are they? But I'm sure if Kazuki skates clean and does well in competition, you'll forgive him for his pajama-like creation. ;) If it's any consolation, according to his fans Sota had some sort of black outfit for his (ugh!) SP... I can only hope they were practice clothes...

Aww, so cute! Kazuki is positively beaming! :love: lol, what's Sota doing with that avocado-like thing on his head... and the only one hiding, as usual :p
Btw Kirara, wish me good luck sleeping because it seems Sota has revealed a new coach and new FS, only the names are not known yet O_O #plznotonishi #plznothonda #plznotdragon
So sorry about hijacking Kazuki's thread like this! *ducks thrown shoes* I'll make up for it by adding Kazuki videos to his media section soon!

Yes, he did great today! :party2:
He landed 4T2T 4S 3A, and earned a score of 88.99!
Here's his protocol: https://twitter.com/Tomono_Infonet/status/1425306483462348806
As you can see, everything clean and levels 3/4! :clap:
As usual, one could argue his scores could be higher, and the judges were probably stingy in PCS and GOE... But oh well, I'll take this result! He said his goal is to keep calm, and tackle one thing at a time.

Here's some pictures from today: https://twitter.com/KazukiGIFs/status/1425297055874883585
(Still not happy about this costume 😅)

Best of luck in the free, Kazuki! 🍀

Kazuki won the Gensan Summer Cup today! :party2: This is the fifth time he wins this tournament, and the prize of prime beef!
He did 4T2T 2S 4T<fall 2F 3Aeu2S 3Aq(so) 3lz2T, he was second in the free with a score of 140.50 and first overall with a total score of 229.49. Here's his protocol: https://twitter.com/Tomono_Infonet/status/1425755260564369418

I'm so happy and proud of him. Firstly, this is a great start of the season. Secondly, surely winning against Yuma will give him a confidence boost - he said last season his aim was to win against him and he couldn't achieve that. Yes, it's early in the season and Yuma wasn't at his best, but still Kazuki was able to hold his ground even though he was the last to perform and Yuma had done reasonably well in the free. This already shows Kazuki is now more mature compared to last season.

Here's his step sequence (available to Japan only, so requires VPN for those outside Japan): https://twitter.com/jsports_figure/status/1425760663713026048

Found a video of Kazuki's SP at the Gensan Summer Cup!
Still not happy with this costume... But the skating itself is beautiful, he's so much faster than a few years ago and the choreo looks quite a bit different, too.

He looks and sounds so happy 😁

I saw it today. It's a nice program, and I agree Kazuki's done loads of work on his flow and SS. I am happy the video is still up. I recommend checking out the rest asap (Kazuki's FS is there too!), I have heard the TV are jealous about the broadcasting rights and plan to re-broadcast it in Japan next month, so the videos might not stay on YT for long.

I now see what you meant about the costume, Kirara. I agree it doesn't flatter Kazuki's body type. I mean, billowy around the stomach and hips, that actually flatters very few men, and short guys like Kazuki look unnecessarily wider in it. I wish they'd picked a costume that shows off Kazuki's body lines more.

Yesssss here's the FS link: https://youtu.be/zhR2MnEf08c
He said he hadn't practiced the FS enough, and it shows, but still a nice performance considering it's super early in the season! It really shows progress compared to last season, and although the music is overused, it definitely suits him.

About the SP costume, yup, that's my biggest gripe too. The colours are nice but the shape doesn't flatter him at all! Plus, the material looks synthetic and uncomfortable. I much prefer the old costume...
