Marin’s reaction after her skate was so emotional, it made me almost cry. I’m so proud of her, I don’t think it was her best but it was clean and much better than last year. But it’s these moments that mean a lot

A very interesting article that explains what Marin has been through so far.

Her most honest interview I've seen :cry: To see her acknowledge that the popularity and endoresments distracted her, that she was not able to focus solely on skating in Japan, communication problems, makes me emotional but also relieved. It's been hard to see her struggle for last two years, it must have been terrible for her, so her saying it all out loud, is comforting. She's been taking things step by step and we clearly see it. I hope things only will get better and better.

Argh, now I'm so sad that the costume obviously wasn't ready yet at Nebelhorn Trophy Gala. Even in her training gear, she was the star of the show to me, skating to this song, which isn't easy and very different to most Gala performances (and made her stand out) I really hope we get to see this exhibition on TV in that beautiful costume one day.

Vertical ver. of Marin's 2016 Japanese Nationals FS, I think it's pretty cool :) One of my all-time favorite programs :luv17: It kinda makes her look like a K-pop singer lol (which she seems to like, I remember her dancing to BLACKPINK on IG live). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeqQbscbE74

I hope she will compete again this season, especially internationally so we can get videos :hopelessness:

Omg, I'm so excited :love: It was pretty unexpected, pretty bold choice but after Mariah's success with her Britney short, I think she can do well too. She's coming for her deserved PCS :luv17: I'm not a fan of bodysuits, so I hope she will change her costume tho :drama:

I loved Albatraoz as an EX, I'm also looking forward to see the competition version. I'm sure she'll have more alternate costumes, didn't she have 5 costumes for 7NA?

Short program.

She had another subrotation on a double Axel, but she landed well. His Inna Bauer, so beautiful, was barely a gesture. She was not feeling very well. But it doesn't matter, in general terms she's improved from last year. This time she went out on the track without his typical festive character. When she sat down to wait for the scores she hardly paid any attention to the results. Well, at least she's gained some self-control. I hope that, besides skating better than last year, she recovers her confidence, because she shines when she feels confident. Marin, skating with confidence, is a party. In short, between good and very good. I hope she at least stays that way for the long program :pray: :pray: :pray:

Why? (30.72)

She obviously deserved more, even with a fall.


I hoped for better free...the only jumps that work for her are 3Lo and 3S, which always were her best jumps so no suprises. Flip is such a problem for her. It was really bad season for her, I wonder if staying with Raf at this point is worth it *sigh*. But like always I'm hopeful for what's coming, I still believe she can get her jumps together (and her mental toughness). She's def not a lost cause, she's TOO special for that. I can't wait for her new programs and to see her skate in ice shows (I hope she will perform her new stuff ASAP).
