  1. "Optional: You may join add a picture if you want to" also I think having default options is ok, but Yuzu probably appreciates those who appreciate his lesser known pieces as well? Like if they choose "other", perhaps have a text box that lets them write them which exactly it is? rather than "other" category that doesn't really show what it is. also people probably have a few that they like, i was thinking about having 1, 2, 3 rankings and compiling the scores, that kind of thing (like 1 will have 3 points, so in the end whichever piece that has most points), but probably too much effort. i think that will show a more accurate picture of preference but yea. should we invite well known fan artist like runrun to share their art as well? theres a list of well known yuzu artists who are very good and it seems a bit of waste for their work not to be shared. or allow sharing of their art as long as it is credited - ie. provides a link to the original post.
  2. I think China in general is just more open to celebrating overseas talent than US, look at how their national TV shower Yuzu with praises over the years. There's an actual channel in bilibili dedicated to uploading every single mention of Yuzuru Hanyu on CCTV, and there's A LOT over the past 4-5 years. Actual content, not passing mentions. They are actual praises that appreciate his character, strength, and influence, while US was quick to stamp him down even before Nathan appeared. I think China is happy to have Yuzu as a face of virtue, ie. having celebrated traits that many parents will want their child to have, while US didn't care about character as much. Even during the Olympics, where Boyang is a medal contender, no one, no TV outlet blamed Yuzu for squeezing Boyang out to 4th place, and even appreciated him for being gracious to Boyang in the green room when he was squeezed out. All the official news social media picked up Yuzu despite China's strong suit being at pairs, and loved him all the same. Famous TV personalities don't hide the fact that they love Yuzu, and they're proud of it. Of course they support Boyang all the same, but China just have more gracious attitude towards rivals than US. In short, the Chinese value virtues like hardworking, being polite to others, humbleness, many of which Yuzu exemplifies. It goes back a long way to the Confucianist culture, and they are in awe with someone who can embody all of the prized traits like how Yuzu can. He is the ideal son, boyfriend, husband, grandchild and employee, so no wonder everyone loves him.
  3. lol i didn't know such a photo existed, i wonder how the photographer feels haha!
  4. For fanarts I think cutesy / heartwarming stuff like those from runrun, hidetamama, or that fanartist who makes cute stories from Origin / Otonal / Haru yo Koi as characters, or monji who draws Yuzu with his "jumps" as little clones of himself, those kind would be more adorable than plain portraits I would think. Or people who make pretty charms like Luxury Carrot or costume badges like Illogicalpins. I mean he did request for the poohs that are dressed up in his costumes to be sent to him ^^ Yes memes plz, I have a feeling he'd fall off the chair laughing hahaha Also for photos, I think we can put photos of him having fun with his friends, considering that he doesn't have public instagram etc to be tagged or document his own life lol. Like all the wholesome Yuzu/Shoma or Yuzu/Javi content, or even those from back when he was messing around with Jeremy Abott / Nobu, recently I've watched those photos again and god I forgot so much about those happy times. I think he enjoys the "important" photos too, like how he mimicked his own pose in the Sochi / Pyeongchang banner, so those should be fine as well. And that "mirror" photoshop at the end of Seimei haha! Not sure if he's seen that yet Messages is a little touchy there imo, I mean we don't want to act as a "judge" as to which messages get to Yuzu, but we don't want to add more pressures to him too, even those that are unintentional. But if handled well could be ok I guess. And yea I don't think he has the time to read through everything. Also there's a new hashtag #LoveYuzuruFromAllOverTheWorld , maybe we can add nice hashtags too so he can check them out when he's free haha, like the one with Yuzu and cats
  5. Seems like we can make a survey out of this, we can share these with the Japanese speaking fans on twitter too! And across other platforms haha, like tumblr, Facebook, etc., no reason to limit it to Planet Hanyu imo, but if there are other considerations I can understand. I'd love it if this can become one of the largest Yuzu fans survey ever conducted though! Yep I wholly agree with the humour part. I'm sure he's had a lot of supportive messages, but those aren't really something you'd read when you're sad or down, at least from my personal experience - it just adds to the frustration that you've disappointed those who've had expectations on you, or those who had an image of you that you never really were in the first place. So something lighthearted, like a welcome distraction will be nice.
  6. Someone tweet this to ISU plz, tbh I think the old bald leaders are so disconnected from the latest technology and standards in other sports they don't see what they can improve on. http://the-real-xmonster.tumblr.com/post/183752140319/hi-alice-the-recent-events-lead-to-a-discussion Even if it happens after Yuzu's era I think he'd be glad to have more accountability in the sports. I think the biggest turn off for this sports now seem to be the lack of objectivity in judging, that's why no one takes it seriously, when there's no obvious metric of what is more superior than the other. Well there is, but it's not enforced anyway. I think it's a vicious cycle, they probably will cite lack of resources for not implementing the changes, but it's precisely because of the lack of change that resources are not pouring in in the first place. When will they realise that what Yuzu brings to this sports is unusual, and they shouldn't take it for granted, or see it as a norm.
  7. Actually why not we just compile the favourite programs into a few pages, since he only has so many programs. then we can squeeze in two templates into a page I guess. Same goes with other questions that has a lot of repetition, like country, fan since xxx, etc. Also I think he'd appreciate quality over quantity, I mean P&G had sent him encyclopedia sized fan appreciations too, and I honestly don't think he has time to read through all of them. Just something light than he can flip through while he's bored or something to have a laugh, I think that'd be good enough. Like when he said he was bleeding blood and cried in his last performance :c We should be careful not to add more expectations to him though, from his description in the Matsuoka interview, he does feel pressurised by it somewhat, and he felt free after the competition. Cute things, happy things, pretty things, I think he can do with that. Just things that makes him happy.
  8. I think fan arts should be fine, as long as the artist is notified and credited, they'd probably be proud to show their art to Yuzu himself. Also so many talented artist out there, it'd be nice for Yuzu to know he inspires so many ppl, not sure how many of those arts Yuzu have seen himself. Some funny fan photos too probably haha, I'm sure he'd get a good laugh out of it
  9. yep, hopefully the 4cc curse doesn't affect him though lol. Nathan and Shoma got 4cc gold and bombed the Worlds D:
  10. If he had recovered in time for 4CC and Worlds, his profile will probably look like: 4x GPF Champion, 3x Worlds Champion, 2x Olympic Champion, and 1x 4CC Champion It'd be perfect
  11. What a nice article written by the newspaper agency from my country... https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/winter-olympics-japanese-icon-yuzuru-hanyu-goes-for-history-on-a-shaky-ankle Really comprehensive, they actually do their homework and respects Yuzu, unlike the stuff we got from CBC / US news / JSF lol "And before he closed by saying "thank you" in five languages - Japanese, Korean, English, French and Russian"
  12. Anyway looking forward to his record for the most Worlds medals achieved ^^
  13. I think when he won Sochi he was like 52kg, and now he's over 60? haha edit: source - 2014 (52kg) https://www.joc.or.jp/english/sochiolympics/medalists.html - 2018 (58kg) https://www.japantimes.co.jp/pyeongchang-olympics/figure-skating/ ahhh his profile pictures... time flies (or not lol, the only difference I spotted was more hair )
