    Exactly. ¥2500 is the price for people living in Japan. Foreign purchasers have the local tax deducted.

    It is definitely the woman's voice expressing concern.

    I'm Parisienne Walkways, which is appropriate since I was hooked after seeing Yuzu performing this on TV in the team event at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games.

    1. Be a man holding a banner right side up. 2. Have someone hold you upside down by your ankles. 3. Yell very loudly as Yuzuru passes by: "Yuzu, I love you!" (Before you pass out.)

    I am reading the English translated version of an epic Japanese biographical novel entitled "Taiko" about Toyotomi Hideyoshi, a famous samurai feudal lord of the mid to late 16th century who brought an end to a century and a half of civil war. He is one of three great men who brought about the unification of Japan. The other two men are his predecessor and liege lord, Oda Nobunaga (who is an ancestor of the skater Nobunari Oda) and Tokugawa Iyeyasu. The following paragraph could have been written about Yuzuru Hanyu and it reminded me that all great people share certain characteristics: " The more dangerous the situation and the deeper his hardships, the happier he became. It was the happiness that arose from surmounting adversities and being able to turn and see them behind him, and he had experienced it to greater and lesser degrees since the time of his youth. He himself claimed that the greatest happiness of life was to stand at the difficult border between success and failure."

    Yuzuru's interview by Shuzo Matsuoka on February 19, 2018 with English subtitles: Thanks to BlueFlame for YUZU

    Which is exactly what Robin Cousins and his female co-commentator said of Shoma Uno at the 2017 World Championships in Helsinki. They said that Shoma Uno had beaten Yuzuru Hanyu to become the Japanese National Champion when Yuzuru was not even in the competition due to flu! So, yes, it is possible that commentators will say that Yuzu was beaten even when he is not in the competition.

    Yuzuru is definitely cute and he is definitely NOT stupid. He is an exceptionally intelligent young man.

    What you are trying to say is that he is CiUTE!

    Off-topic, I know, but is there a thread on the planet where I can find links to videos of the performances of skaters other than Yuzu?

    I just clicked on the link and still get ¥6,571,000. Did you click on this link right now? What is the figure that you get?

    Why does the auction show ¥6,571,000 when I click on the link???
  14. General Yuzuru chat
