    Can anyone recommend a site where I can stream shows/movies from Asia? Some of them look dodgy and I’d prefer to avoid ramsomeware. (I’m actually looking for the Japanese “Little Forest” and a small 4 episode show called “Pan to supu to neko biyori” but from there I hope to watch more movies.) thank you!

    I’m starting to think Mr. Hanyu is a bit of a fashion historian and likes the 1960-70s. Check out Jimi Hendrix’s satiny shirt...bet he has a wide belt and some flared leg pants on...can you say PARISIAN WALKWAYS? Check out the ruffled glory on the fellow to the right....the pink...HYK? And Jimi’s medallion...MEDALlion. Never underestimate Mr Hanyu.

    Stairway to Heaven using traditional Japanese instruments. Very nice. (Hmmm, link only)

    The hand... I appreciate it (I’m a hand fan).

    The above posts are excellent. I agree, know not only your professional strengths but your personal ones as well. Just went to a management seminar and many folks seem to agree that skills can be taught, but “fit” (as in meshing with your environment) cannot. So the more you know about yourself the more you can see if this job will be for you. A thank you note may seem an old fashioned bit of etiquette but it shows you attend to detail...and know etiquette! Best of luck!

    So true. So I will extricate myself from the teacup.

    Perhaps Mr. Kozuka was opining he thought someone who had been competing regularly up to the Olympics had a good chance of winning (being in good condition), thus he was surprised at the outcome. It's not unreasonable.

    Shoma’s hairstyle reminds me a bit of a Dorothy Hamill. Layered bobs are for everyone

    Yes, yes, and yes! He doesn’t really have anyone else to attend to so he can be all he can be now.

    IMHO, he looks about 50x happier at that school than at the People's award ceremony. Maybe because to kids he is simply a famous and admirable athlete, and they don't think of him in lofty ways such as an idol. paragon of virtue, secret lover, etc. LOL I wonder if he splits his demeanor as a coping mechanism: At home, he is just one part of Family Hanyu; on the ice he is the Ultra Competitor; in public he is the Model of Impeccable Politeness. I think we all do that to a degree. (Yeah, I had some time on my hands to write this, but now real life calls!) Happy July everyone!

    It’s nice Mr Hanyu seems to have a levelheaded family to help him through his unusual life adventures.

    As far as I know all families have one so he is not unusual. You can look it up through ancestral records or maybe even online. Some are more famous than others but if you are interested you can look them up via Google (kamon). Thought: Oda comes from a very famous samurai family so his should be easy to find.

    Canned tuna is called “sea chicken” in Japan.

    IMHO, it will be interesting to see Mr Takahashi in the mix. I think he will be another skater who brings a more, shall we say, artistic approach to a program. As if to say, “Look! Figure skating is about THIS, too!” (That being said, yes I understand he has to be technically proficient as well.) He can freshen up Cyber Swan and I’d be happy. Lol

    The skating season starts July 1 so Takahashi-san had to come to a decision.
