Since we'll see this couple in two GP events (Helsinki and NHK), I've decided to open this thread for all their fans. Good luck in the GP circuit! Later I will add more videos and results details.

I love Miu and Ryuichi, thanks for making a fanfest for them, Mohacz! I hope they do well in Finland.
Here's a link to their Japanese Fed bios - https://skatingjapan.or.jp/national/detail.php?athlete_id=654_452 It includes a link to Ryuichi's twitter account, and their updated list of hobbies (thumbs up to 'cleaning' in Ryuichi's list, lol :biggrin: ) I also believe they both are, or were, students of Chukyo University in Nagoya.

Perfect. I've already added this info to their OP. I have also found their Instagram accounts and added them to the Social Media section (Miu has it private).

Dropping by to wish Ryuichi a speedy recovery, as I've just read Miu and him couldn't perform at 4CC because he sustained a concussion in pratice. Such rotten luck. Get well soon!
