  1. I wonder if girls will get their bf to do it lol also lmao the comments "不小C你错了,我们既不想靠体力也不想靠运气,我们只想砸钱明白不" C-chan you're wrong, we don't want to rely on our strength or luck, we just want to give money get it?
  2. Sad to hear that. Though I was comparing the situation between Toronto which is right next to the New York epicentre, and Sendai which is hopefully far enough from Tokyo. Wherever he is, hope he stay well and healthy. edit: nvm didn’t realise the distance between Toronto and NY is twice the distance from Tokyo to Sendai. US is a big place
  3. just realised my friend already came back from California... not surprised if Yuzu chose to go back to Japan I guess. Hope he spends quality time with his family
  4. There are already studies with the preliminary effects of some medication on helping the condition, like some antivirals, arthritis medication?, etc. Those are peer reviewed studies so I'd trust them, but yea don't take it without prescription because it can kill you (someone died doing this)
  5. True, that's what I thought too. Also, this is crazy. Poor Javi
  6. Agreed. 70% of Singapore's imported cases spike these few days are from UK, yet their official cases isn't much. this video clearly explains the number of hidden cases behind every death.
  7. Show him the videos of Spanish and Italian hospitals, there's plenty on reddit. That changed some minds for the elderlies I heard. They didn't think they'd get it either. https://www.reddit.com/r/Coronavirus/ Italian hospital Spanish hospital Hope everything goes well. Best of health to your family
  8. Japan definitely underreporting cases for hopes at Olympics, we know that Japan didn't have aggressive containment measures, and their numbers don't match up with other countries of similar containment measures strictness. I'm not sure if Yuzu is in Japan actually, it seemed like everything happened in quick succession. March 12 Worlds cancelled March ?? TCC closed March 18 Canada inbound travel restriction imposed Not sure if he got the tickets in time. Wish the Worlds were cancelled sooner so he could leave earlier. Then again he is a stats student, I hope he understands the risks. Him being home will be great, there'll be a lot of much needed family time they missed over the years. But if his father and sister still works there's a risk of getting the virus, though probably not as high a chance than his mother shopping in Toronto for groceries, considering the state of New York right now. He also has to keep in mind that he might not be able to come back to Canada, and we don't know how long the restriction will last. Perhaps he will have private lessons when the worst is over? Also, the Spanish flu disappeared for a while in the Summer and came back in full force in the Autumn. Hope it doesn't happen here. Is Zhenya back in Russia now? Edit: Glad that my parents are reasonable and understand the risks. Best of luck to everyone and stay healthy!
  9. YES! So glad to see that you like ToG and Khun too haha, I love him very much too More art from here haha
  10. Need to talk about this haha, I've been waiting for 5 years and finally they have an anime! I know people who have waited for 10 years Basically Tower of God is a Korean webcomic that recently got an adaptation, it has over 4.5 billion views so far. It's still ongoing and you can read it here. For 7 other languages including Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese, you can find them here. The reason this is huge, because this is basically the first EVER Korean webcomic to receive a full anime adaptation. It was published in 2010, but despite its popularity, no one knew if it'll ever be adapted. We're so happy it happened this year. Naver is rich and they even got a Kpop band to perform the OP and ED. We got some big names too, namely Bakugo's VA for Khun, All Might's VA for Rak, Saori for Rachel, Kevin Penkin is composing the music, Bleach's character designer, and many more. It is an Epic Fantasy series, most commonly compared to One Piece and Hunter x Hunter. A lot of world building but more serious tone overall, kind of like Harry Potter or Attack on Titan in my opinion. I liked it for its detailed world building and more mature themes, I wrote a long review here. The art isn't that great in the beginning, but improved a lot as it goes on. Hopefully they'll update the art if we get a season 2. The current colouring in the anime reminds me of Studio Ghibli vibes. News release 1, News release 2 (with short bio of characters and cast comments) Interviewing the MC voice actors MyAnimeList page, Tower of God wiki page, Official site Twitter version for the geoblocked (Asia) Also the character designer is releasing art for countdown, and I'm loving it haha Khun the bishonen lol (don't be fooled he got brains :P), and above all, a stunning friendship with the MC (kind of reminds me of how Javi and Yuzu gets teary eyed for each other 😂) end of rant! Sorry I'm too hyped haha Edit: here's the 1st episode https://www.crunchyroll.com/en-gb/tower-of-god/episode-1-ball-794519
  11. ice time is really important for them though, I heard one day without ice practice can seriously set back their jumps for a lot. but at least he has experience and is not in a rush
  12. Last I checked Miyagi has 1 case, maybe he can go back for ice time... but flying at this time is certainly very risky
  13. Strange, because mild to severe COVID causes inflammation & pneumonia that floods your alveoli, and I don't know his trigger for asthma but it's also basically an inflammatory disease on the airways of lungs. Maybe what they mean is that they affect different parts of the lungs? I'm scared though, because both have to do with inflammation response, and I hope they really have nothing to do with each other Edit: F https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/325312 "Asthma does not directly cause pneumonia, but people with a history of chronic respiratory problems, such as asthma, could have a higher risk of developing pneumonia." I guess we should be happy that he does not have to increase the chance of exposing himself to the virus. Lots of figure skaters, fans and staff from Europe in an enclosed arena for days, with possibility of asymptomatic viral shedding? Definitely recipe for disaster. Glad the Canadian government stepped in because ISU didn't seem like they wanted to shut it down. If this went ahead Yuzu would probably have to attend. Also everyone who bought the gala tickets that got turned into an award show finally can get the refund lol
  14. Oh no Toronto looks quite close to the New York State I hope he stays safe.... He's got asthma too, can't be good :c
  15. Hope you are well, glad that you made it through all that. I think in the end we just don't know whether he needs one or not. Some people take offence at being offered therapy when they don't need them, but many others take offence at being told that they don't need therapy when they really did need them. It's a common problem in conservative societies where the intervention are unnecessarily delayed for people who really needed them, resulting in worsened conditions or even deaths that could've been prevented if their pleas for help was taken seriously. For example, I had severe depression that is directly caused by hepatitis C, so external intervention was needed in my case, but I couldn't get one because my family didn't believe me when I said I needed one. I finally got treatment, and I'm in a better place now, but not until it worsened and caused damage that didn't really need to happen had I gotten timely help. I can look forward now, but it really sucked when people insist that they know what you need or don't need. I think there's no cases that would justify the reasoning "If I didn't need it, you don't need it because I think you are similar to me", because our assumptions of Yuzu based on "what we see online" are often very different from what the reality actually is for him. We often see Yuzu as strong as resilient, but based on his translated interviews, he also cries a lot in private and have a tendency to overthink or get overwhelmed by his own emotions. Even parents don't always understand what their children needs, what more fans who only know the side of him known to public. This is best left to professionals with the necessary technical expertise. Let's just enjoy Yuzu without speculating what he needs, or projecting our thoughts onto him. He is himself, and he knows what he needs.
  16. Yuzu can go ahead and skate Notte Stellata to his face, and get him drowned in praises for Yuzu
  17. I think it's really the culture, if you grow up in a typically conservative Asian culture like me you'll get what I mean. It's not just Japan, but perhaps more so in Japan. Girls aren't supposed to be outspoken, girls should be quiet, meek and shy, girls shouldn't be too opinionated or "guys won't like you", girls should be subservient, girls shouldn't be too ambitious, "alpha" girls are lousy girls that no one wants etc. The mentality is everywhere, and you get subtly reminded of it often, whether you like it or not. Granted not all of Japan thinks that way, but you cannot escape the subconscious moulding, and Yuzu is special in a way that his family allowed his personality to flourish instead of judging it like a conservative society would. Not being a girl helps too. There's a saying in Japan that “The nail that sticks out gets hammered down.”, and I think we underestimate the cost of being "different" in a conservative society. If Rika grew up in a more "open" environment, I'm sure she'll be more "outspoken" than she is now.
  18. Thanks for trying, I don't have the patience of a saint anymore hahah
  19. https://www.weibo.com/5220270792/ItzihAJ1N?ref=home&rid=12_0_8_3383041534594829900_0_0_0&type=comment#_rnd1581347756263 Ahhh what a beauty https://files.catbox.moe/trjehz.png
  20. do you have the link? I'd love to see it!
  21. That was before his GPF loss and his historical record being shattered lol. I won’t be surprised if he holds different views now.
  22. I think it is very unlikely, since I doubt he’d keep going if he cannot perfect it for more than a season. He is injury free so far as well, and his reasoning this year was because he was out of competition a lot last year. He never perfected Phantom and Lets Go Crazy I think, yet he never repeated them. Usually he repeats something when there’s something he’d like to focus on, like using his best WR programs for Olympics as a declaration and to scare his rivals, PW because it was a good fit for the OG, Chopin because he was injured the year before and would be less stressful to keep attempting upgraded layouts if he only has to learn one new program, Otonal and Origin because he’s injured last year as well. If he forms bad memories of these programs this year, I doubt he would continue, look at LGC and Phantom, he never even repeated them in EX. If he forms good memories then there’s no reason to continue using them because the chapter is finally closed with a high note, and he achieved his goals of paying respect to his idols. I suspect he will land the 4A this Worlds and retire. He seems very worn out in this quad race against Nathan at this age, and after landing 4A he’ll have achieved the mark he wanted to. He said himself he won’t go to the Olympics if he can’t win. Even if in the 0.01% chance he did repeat, he’ll develop and change the program such that those with an eye for figure skating will appreciate it regardless. I hated Notte Stellata in 16-18, but this latest one really changed and grew so much I was shocked. Judges who actually judge won’t let it affect them. Judges who let this kind of things affect them won’t judge him correctly anyway even if he changed his program, like in the 16-17 season.
  23. Yes TSL is just forming their own opinions, then finding reasons to support it. That’s hardly a good conclusion to make, and I feel sorry for whoever believes them. If this happens in research, there’d be outrage over the quality of the conclusion. You don’t conclude that people like to eat peanuts, then look for evidence to support it. You look at the evidence then find out what it tells you, while being prepared to accept that your hypothesis might be wrong or even irrelevant. But for fs no one cares about the truth and integrity of their opinions it seems. Let them be, it just revealed their ignorance and short term memory of figure skating, where they seem to have no idea how things are like for the rest of the field, yet still pretend to be an expert based on their narrow views. If they think Yuzu has a reputation for repeating his programs, then they haven’t watched figure skating for the last decade, and have no right to make declarative statements like that.
  24. We cannot say what is most likely or not as an outsider, unless you happen to know the judges themselves. Many Russian officials still prefer Yuzu’s skating as seen during their interaction after GPF. It’s true that Nathan’s ChSq gets higher GOE, but personally I think the nationality is a much bigger factor than whatever excuse they try to come up with. Even with new programs they’d mark him down the same because “he didn’t fit in yet”, like what happened in the 16-17 season. Personally I think the 3 biggest factor is 1. Nationality. Boyang had similar achievements with Nate when he started, but his PCS remained a solid 10 marks below Yuzu, while Nate’s shot up by 5 marks within the season, and more than 10 marks across seasons. 2. Results reputation (the more you win, the more you’ll keep winning due to memory bias of the judges in the scene. Yuzu haven’t been in competitions a lot, which allowed Nate to win and nab the advantage. If he came in as the 6x GPF champion (which is very possible for the last 2 years) things might’ve been different. Evgenia missed one GPF and her Olympic fate was sealed for her. 3. Consistency (a very small factor compared to the other 2, but still significant somehow if all else is equal. Just see Dima vs Samarin)
  25. I think you’re putting a lot of your own interpretation in these things. Shizuka and many others repeat their programs 3 times, but no one saw a drop in PCS. Alina repeated her junior program for Olympics yet her PCS shot up like crazy. The “excuse” for the current penalty is just politicking. No judges takes PCS seriously anymore, you can look at the skatingscores data and see how obvious the “coalitions” was. The Italian judge this GPF too, it’s just a tool for them to prop up their favourites without having to justify it like BV. If Yuzu was American, Russian or Canadian I bet you his PCS will shot through the roof regardless of what he does
