  1. Fantasy on Ice 2018 in MAKUHARI

    Lmao thats hilarious, what a troll Re: costume. I think if I set my mind on seeing it as a gundam program rather than focusing on the ~deep and soft theme song, I can like that awful shade of blue and yellow. yuzu in a robot inspired costume is not that bad, especially in that tweet that compare it to the robot next to his pic lol

    yeppp, that layback spin is really pretty maybe he trains spins a lot when he's in rehab bc this looks better than before since right ankle needs rest left ankle gotta work hard lol

    gif by me eta: I feel like I should mention this, I color correct these gifs a lot, please don't be fooled, the costume is still hideous lmao I hate that shade of blue do the floof really help compliment his layback spin or has yuzu's layback improve so much from that time he did it in final time traveler? either way i hope someday he do a layback -> haircutter -> bielmann because damn in that last revolution it really looks like he can grab his free leg

    oh so it was about that person again but im pretty sure people are not talking about the one with alina, javi etc... jpn twitter generally enjoyed and laughed about that one i remember, maybe some got uncomfortable then but now they are specifically talking about what happened last night? what the heck did this guy do? i mean, serving drinks while cosplaying doesnt seem that much more offensive than before to me? (heck when i heard he played yuzu's nhk fall for laughs some time ago thats the stuff i found offensive ) eta: the show might not have happened last night, maybe the video just got shared around and exploded very recently

    Do you guys know anything about some jpn show that makes (not good) jokes on seimei n yuzuru, or something along that line, very recently? I saw a complaint's being translated into japanese in my tl and was confused what theyre talking about, that tweet was gaining popularity quickly
  6. [TV Broadcast] Continues~with Wings~

    i think you can buy it via cdjapan? proxy service for international (that's the link to the black tshirt size s, you need to search around for other link for other size or other merch) the shipping is insane though yaaay, thank you so much i missed the broadcast and only seen the clips here and there

    I'm happy polina is already under cska. Not my favorite club but at least she can get protected there. This one happened so quietly... Hope we can get update about trusova and tarakanova too

    please skating gods dont turn this into an ugly battle but i guess this is kinda inevitable
  9. 2018/19 Coaching changes

    what is happening.... the zhenya's part ends happily but good god im so worried for the rest of her teammates, polina, trusova, tarakanova, and i feel bad that alina is dragged into this too by eteri (and she also admitted she was scared of her? and the things with puberty comments etc) i did not sign up for this stress....
  10. 2018/19 Coaching changes

    she isnt my favorite lady either but, zhenya's anna karenina ex at ice fantasia was good imo, here. i recommend i'm now worried for polina sounds like eteri had a lot of fights with her skaters' parents?? it's so weird... it's their parents and it's not like they went againts the skaters' wish either
  11. 2018/19 Coaching changes

    lmaaooooo i didnt think of that thank god, this ends on a good note. i feel like this is all still a dream, its so surreal because everything went so fast lol when is she leaving for toronto? june?
  12. 2018/19 Coaching changes

    Smart. I think we shouldnt worry too much of her getting low trying to get back at what eteri has done. Her team sounds like they know what theyre doing. (Ofc I could also be wrong who knows anymore)

    OR it could be people who wanted to hate him just refuse to see what his words actually said, and will use anything to put him down, including something that he never said. I doubt these kind of people will just suddenly say 'oh yeah my bad' even after theyre corrected, especially one who did go to national tv to slight him. In any case, this whole thing is such a mess. I'm praying for brian, and zhenya.

    that's where the BV change comes in. since they're lowering quads bv while the triples stay (at least i hope the triples stay bc yikes if otherwise), theoretically they cant rely only on quads anymore. and tbh even now skaters cant just afford to discard spins because 1 point is still 1 point, too many close fight recently. i know what you mean though, some skaters just seem to not care about it, but maybe it has more to do with them not being as passionate about things theyre not good at ^^ i've been thinking about this too actually. bv spins right now are ranging from 1.0 - 3.5 i think, about the same with mostly double jumps (and lower triples). while stsq range from 1.5 to 3.9. and freaking chsq's bv, that has no level so they automatically get the bv even if its just (1) not good spread eagle, is 2.0. how is that even fair.... granted 2.0 is about the same bv as only level 2 spin, its still ??? now though, the question is, what do you think should be equal to spin lv 4? because i think it starts off mostly right, lvl b spin getting only 1 point... i mean i certainly dont think lvl b spin deserves to be in equal to double jumps. maybe it's the increment that should be higher

    of course! The time cutting is such a stupid thing to do, in my opinion the most ridiculous one out of this whole changes. the non quad repetition wouldnt even see the light of day, wouldnt even crossed their minds, had they not cut the time. Since that rule really is just a way to prevent another problem that might rise with the time cutting. The GOE -+5 and BV changes are honestly fine, in general, on their own, if we're feeling optimistic and not fussing too much over details (we're not tho, complaining over the smallest detail is what we do best here and we're proud of it ). But time cutting is just straight up selfish. It literally has no positive advantage for skaters, not even when we're feeling optimistic; every skaters and coaches know about rhythm and how much time it needs to do quads, etc. And it spoiled every little bit of "good intention" they have with the GOE and BV changes, and what little "progress" that changes might have shown. They just did it for themselves. Either commercial reasons or money or some kinda sponsor getting their way or something. And they cant just come outright and say or even imply it, so they disguise it with everything else. But the contradiction still stands out lmao The number of jumping passes being reduced is just a result of the time cutting, i dont think it can be considered as what they originally aim, and therefore has no actual reason behind it, technically. And as we could see from the past, from zayak rule, the number of jumping pass and repeated jumps goes hand in hand with each other. And voila we get all this mess we have with the new rules. I know you're not serious and just wondering tho ^^
