    I thought ForJoyTV was also dead? :umm:


    The website is working but I have never tried to register on it, so I don't know if they still provide the service or not.


    Good news: we subscribed to isakura, so we can rabbit it too :dancingpooh:

    Quoting from the competition thread, I posted an as-HD-as-I-can-get video haha. No commentary.

    This is as HD as I could get, but here's Yuzu's SP + warmup (no commentary). I'm uploading the whole event but it'll take some time.

    Sorry if posted before, but just amazed by how mature Yuzuru is at just 15.

    I took this evening to rewatch all performances from Yuzu at Worlds from Nice 2012 to Helsinki 2017... and I realized that I've never seen some of them before, especially some SPs.

      Hide contents


    It's interesting that he has only skated one clean short program at Worlds so far. That was in Boston 2016.

    However, despite mistakes he always pulled through as if nothing had happened. Performance wise the SPs were really a joy to watch.

    The free skates were surprisingly strong throughout. Till Saitama 2014 he didn't make any major jump error. You could see, that he had to fight for some landings and the choreographies were a bit rough (especially Notre Dame and R&J 2.0 lacked this global concept that Seimei, Origin or other FS have). But he made the best out of them .

    In Shanghai and Boston there was a little turnaround, but I put this down to Yuzu's injuries at that time.

    What I really loved about POTO: 9 of 10 skaters would have resigned after that terrible start with 2S and a fall on the 4T, but Yuzu made everyone forget about it with a textbook rest.

    For me that's even more impressive than a clean program from the beginning, because it's so tough to get your head free in that moment - especially when you fight for gold.




    Another example of this is Yuzu's FS performance at the 2013 Trophee Eric Bompard. He had to finish first or second at this GP event in order to qualify for the Grand Prix Final. Since the Japanese men's field was so deep, qualifying for the Grand Prix Final was crucial in whether or not he would be chosen for the Japanese Olympic team.


    Many a skater would have been totally devastated by the freak accident that nullified his initial quad Salchow, followed by the fall on his quad toeloop. Both of his two quads in the free skate were blown. What followed after that was a demonstration of immaculate skating which allowed him to finish second and qualify for the Grand Prix Final in Japan where he beat Patrick Chan.


    If he had failed at the 2013 TEB, he would not have made the 2013 GPF and may not have made the Japanese Olympic team. Even if he had, he would not have had the #1 world ranking and may not have had the confidence to win his first Olympic gold medal. History may have gone in a totally different direction if he had not pulled himself together so well after the two disastrous quad attempts at the 2013 TEB.

    Thanks again to the one and only Enrique. The video quality is not that great but the distance made me appreciate more the delicacy of the choreography and effortlessness of the jumps.

    ... but there are countries which didn't sign Universal Copyright Convention. So theoretically if a website is under jurisdiction of such country laws, copyright owners could block it "outside" only?

    But it'd be hella expensive all the same, even if doable.


    I'm pretty sure the Chinese weibo / bilibili sites didn't care much about all these. Weibo is a little difficult, but bilibili is quite accessible even to foreigners, although I'm not sure about their policies.


    Here's the bilibili site of the largest Yuzu Weibo account (Yuzuru Hanyu Infostation: 564k followers on weibo), where they host their subbed Yuzu videos and news dating back to Aug 2016 


    Here's the bilibili site of the second largest Yuzu Weibo account (YuzuRINK), they host their Yuzu subbed vids here too, there's even more of them lol, dating back to Dec 2014 (THEY SUBBED THE ENTIRE CWW OMG) 


    You can sort the videos by "Most played" or "Most favourited" as circled below 




    Here's the 66th NHK Kōhaku Uta Gassen where Yuzu appeared in, cut to Yuzu scenes only 


    The location of the "close on-screen comments" button, which is right under the video (the blue button) as circled. That's the only thing you need to know lol. You can control the playback speed too but that's for another time. 




    Here's more Yuzu content on bilibili


    Anyone who can read Chinese can operate it (probably, barring any weird restrictions. I have a personal account for collecting the videos but I heard content makers need a test haha). Even if you don't, once you use it long enough you'll know where to click lol, I once played a full Korean game based on only fan translations haha. 


    *bonus: Some of the very best MADs I've ever seen originated from here
