Thank you for your translation!
Thank you for this! Sota's skills impress me as usual, and the song suits him more than I thought
I just think the programme needs more choreo to be more distinctive, especially as Kevin Aymoz's rendition of this song is still very fresh on people's minds.
Also, the costume! He needs a new one ASAP. This one is not flattering and the colour looks really washed out on the ice.
Overall, I don't think it's a bad programme/choice for him, just it needs some adjustments to make full use of his amazing artistry and gorgeous lines. Hopefully his team will work on it as the season progresses
I don't know who Kevin Aymoz is and why should people remember him? Lets focus on Sota here, it's his FF.
I wouldn't judge a program skated at a summer competition, for obvious reasons. Lets see how international judges are going to react
Contrary to what you may think, it is possible to be a fan and express concerns or even criticize at the same time. Being a fan doesn't equal blind uncritical admiration. Kirara has every right to express her opinion. If you've not seen Aymoz's FP last season, it is your problem. It has won quite a bit of praise so Kirara raises an absolutely valid concern.
@ Kirara, at least there won't be a battle of the Shirts at NHK as Kevin has a new FP. Now, let's wait where Sota moves the programs with more practice and with the early season kinks gone. It's demanding and at this point I still prefer the previous seasons' programs, but once he gets comfortable with these two, who knows, it just could work! I am particularly curious about his SP potential. I wouldn't have a problem with him returning to his previous expression range TBH, because it was already good and his posture is to die for, so no need for any body contortions if he finds out it doesn't work for him. JMO.
Some cool Sota fanart by my favorite artist (got inspired by the Kazuki thread, but this artist doesn't seem to have drawn Kazuki yet )

On the day of the short, after finishing his, Tomono-kun was watching Sota-kun’s performance. They have a nice friendly rivalry (^^).
