Just a reminder to everyone that Kazuki skates tomorrow at DOI! :yahoo:
Unfortunately I won't be able to watch the paid stream, but I'll make sure to share any updates I see here.

Here's Kazuki SP performance from today: https://twitter.com/tegomass/status/1304756428415082496
He had issues with his quads, a step out on the 4T and had to save the 4S, and therefore missed the combo.
The 3A, however was absolutely glorious, and he's now doing it out of a bracket and with a very short set up! Not quite '3A out of nowhere' like Yuzuru, but not too far off :love:

The StSq was also to die for, his SS has improved and it was just so smooth. I'm actually happy now he's repeating this programme because we'll be able to see it in its full potential!

It seems they did 'score' the performance:
TES 38.25
PCS 41.75
TSS 80.00

Pleasantly surprised with them giving him 40+ in PCS, although it's still far from what he actually deserves...

Kazuki's performance from yesterday on YouTube: https://youtu.be/H_zXeaPEZ4g

Today's performance (only first half): https://twitter.com/tegomass/status/1305047468187549696
Layout: 4Tfall 4S (hangs on) 3A2T 3Lo 4Sturn2T 3A1Eu2S 2Lz

Overall, not a bad showing at all from Kazuki! Yes, jumps were not perfect but his SS and steps are sharper than ever - hopefully this will be reflected in his PCS (a girl can dream).

In addition, he posted a GLORIOUS 4lo he landed at practice on his IG: https://twitter.com/FSIgstories/status/1305001408853311489

I am now confident Kazuki can land this jump in competition... He had said he could only land it when he's in top shape, but now he's been able to land it as early as September! Plus, the jump itself looks even more effortless and beautiful than before :love:

Kazuki's full DOI performance on YouTube: https://youtu.be/NJIGcMA5iCA
He was visibly tired in the second half, and the ChSq was kinda wild :laugh: I wonder if he's now too fast for it.
I must confess I was upset to see Kazuki repeating his programmes, but now I'm happy. It makes it easier to see how much his skating has improved :love:

On a different note, entries for Japanese regionals are out. As expected, Kazuki will be competing at Kinki with Mitsuki and Taichi.

BTW, a friend just made this Kazuki fan account on Twitter: https://twitter.com/KazukiGIFs Please follow! :luv17:

Kazuki will be featured in a FS Life magazine special edition: If I understood correctly, it'll be an interview about the skaters who influenced him the most.
As far as what I'm reading from the article in this tweet, he loves Daisuke sooo much that he can't stop talking about him for almost the entire page:LOL:

Tatsuki and Yuzuru are also in his list but you can tell Daisuke remains the most special figure to him.

Awww that's so cute! I love that he has no reservations when he speaks about his idols.

Kazuki was a guest at Shoma's You Tube channel, together with Marin Honda!
They talk about how they became friends, and what they think about each other.
I have only one word: KAWAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII 🥰

Whoo! Thank you for sharing this. Kazuki, Marin and Shoma look great in this video! I had so much fun just watching them rambling and laughing😆
And Kazuki the guitarist LOL I do think he has been more of a ramenist (since when?).
P.S. Shoma's channel looks very polished. I'm a bit surprised that his videos have English subtitles😇

I think the first time I saw Kazuki and Shoma compete together was at Worlds Milan in March 2018. Then they were together at Sk Can. Here they are watching the ladies event with Nam and Roman.

His hat he received from a fan was truly a highlight! The audience loved it!
Oh that hat! How come it suits his costume so well 😧

Shoma's channel is great! I'm very grateful for the subtitles. About the 'guitarist' thing, it wasn't a proper guitar, it was a programme he had in novices in which he did this air guitar pose lol However, I believe he repeated this programme for several seasons, so it became like a signature move for him back in the day 😂

Actually, they were in quite a few events together in between Milan and SCI 18. They did a lot of shows together that summer, that was when Shoma gave Kazuki a collantotte necklace - I wonder if that sealed the deal 😂 They also competed together at Lombardia that season, by that time they were already very close, as I remember Shoma 'stealing' Kazuki's glasses during the SP draw and trying them on himself🤣

Check out this glorious pic from 4CC: https://www.nikkansports.com/sports/news/img/202009110000602-w500_0.jpg
:love2::love2::love2::love2:

Also, sad news, everyone: Good Morning Call ABC, the TV show that featured Kazuki several times (including the occasion on my avatar), is going to end this Friday, 2 October. It's a real shame as they had adopted Kazuki as part of their 'family' and always did funny interviews with him :cry:

I hope someone uploads the programs, like they did for Chuubu and Kyuushuu! I want to see Kazuki who is the clear favorite, and Mitsuki!
Sorry to hear about the show ending. Maybe it means more talkshows for Kazuki though!
