SEIMEI (7/67)

  1. I went to PyeongChang and it was surely memory for a lifetime! All the dreams hanging on the line, seeing miracles come true, just magical. In 2018 the first sale of tickets had already started in the summer, but the situation is different this year with covid. I'm Chinese, and the latest news I can find about Olympic tickets is that in May they signed a company for printing the tickets, so hopefully an audience will be allowed in. However, up to now, all international travelers are still required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in this country, so unless the global pandemic situation gets much better, that's a huge barrier for international fans. (And me, since I would be studying in the US by then qwq)
  2. Ah, so this year's magazine cover invasion is by a black T-shirt! I liked last year's white one better, since it went well with the trees in the background, but Yuzu in any color is amazing Yuzu! Since you seem to be going for basic colors, Yuzu, maybe try some basic gold next year? And lmao Jack really is digging up Youtube for good fanyu videos isn't he? My guess is with his "constantly evolve" mindset, we'll probably never hear "that's my 100%" from Yuzu. But when he feels satisfied he's achieved something (like winning a consecutive OGM lol) we may get to hear "it's 100% of me on this day!"
  3. As for how long Yuzu's going to continue skating... I guess Yuzu himself may not even know right now, and he totally could find new motivations after the +5GOE 4A. My main concern is his health. He's definitely not old among male skaters, but his body is among the few that has endured the most injuries. I have once chatted with a Yuzu fan who also happens to be a sports physician and has worked with top competitive figure skaters. She said with Yuzu's public track record of injuries, she'd be extremely surprised if he continued for another 4 years... Of course it's only an opinion, from a doctor who after all have never seen Yuzu in person, so it's not in anyway guaranteed accurate. But it just made me think, sometimes it's easy for us to underestimate how hard it is for skaters to stay on top, even only physically. (And I say "stay on top" because Yuzu has stated that, as he continues, that's the only place he'll aim for.)
  4. I don't think Yuzu is complete "shielded" from public contents about himself. In fact, he appears quite aware of them. For example, at the post-Olympics press conference in Japan, a journalist asked a question, and Yuzu recognized him and thanked him for an on-TV analysis of his skating the journalist did, saying that he have watched it. Also at the conference, when the host asked him about people saying Shoma could have won if he didn't fall, he said "I know a lot of people have being discussing this, and I'm sorry if some fans feel upset about it, but I can say that I was sure I would win the second I finished my program." And he has definitely seen many videos of himself on Youtube. I can't recall the name of the TV program, but in an interview he said he searches for his own performances online. Sometimes he watches the good ones to build images of jumps, and sometimes he look for fancams for a different angle. I guess his team may shield him as much as possible from meaningless things like rumors made by tabloids. And he himself probably tries to ignore them, like he said in the 2016 documentary, "I want to be alone/lonely, so that I can stay away from distractions." But I think he's aware of all the debates of the skating world, his own public image on mainstream media, and stuff like that.
  5. The word is 少年气, meaning "having the aura of a teenage boy." 少年 is the same as the word "shonen" in Japanese, as in "shonen manga," so the concept is someone untamed by life, passionate, sincere, idealistic, probably kind of reckless but always trying their best with no holding back. It's a popular concept and a quality people admire very much, because (as per my observation) many feel that due to the pressure of life nowadays, young people become too realistic too early.
  6. According to Number magazine, this "a while ago" is a month and a half ago, and it's still swollen, so yeah I'm honestly a bit worried... Especially judging by his words ("I sort of cut my finger but I don't know if anything's broken.") he probably didn't see a doctor Yeah he's an adult and he's got people looking out for him so nothing could really go wrong... I should stop worrying about it but why I can't
  7. While catching up with the thread, I went online to look for goat plushies to throw at CoR. But all I can find is: - plenty of sheep plushies - many alpaca plushies (I'm tempted, they're super cute plus the long neck seems somehow appropriate) - one toy goat with plastic horns that might break when thrown onto the ice Maybe I should just buy a cute alpaca and sew a pair of horns onto it
  8. But for GPF and NHK 2015 he skated last, and look what that produced! I think the last myth about skating order was skating second 2nd in a group means bad luck, and Yuzu broke the curse at ACI SP last year with a WR. So no more fear for any skating orders for fanyus from then on!
  9. A few months later, the very cute skater turned into a little demon dragging him into a quad battle But when they both succeeded the celebration was indeed the cutest!
  10. This may or may not count... Yuzu taking a pic with a short track skater (who happens to be an Oly champ too)
  11. I read somewhere that Brian advised him not to make any public social media account, though probably it was Yuzu's intention all along anyway. The advice came from their experience with Yuna, who has a bunch of Korean media as crazy as the Japanese one to deal with. She had a little bit of unfortunate history with her twitter (unintentionally getting into a fan war I think), and all her accounts ended up with only charity & commercial content. Anyway, social media really carries great risks for any celebrity that doesn't feed off the clicks. When you're scrutinized by such wide public, whatever you do at all will get some people's hate. When it's as intimate a medium as social media, it gets personal. It's good for the peace of mind if not the public image, especially for someone with a kind and sensitive heart like Yuzu.
  12. Wow. Origin is like, brand new Yuzu, but vintage Yuzu at the same time. Watching it is literally like having him gently but irresistibly grabbing my soul into his palm... And it's just a practice clip
  13. people on TL yelling "NEW CONTENT!!!" without yelling what the content is I'm dead
  14. Figure Skate TV is going on right now. Someone posted a screenshot on my timeline but I've no idea where to watch it Ahhhhhhhh hoping for new clips new info new anything hope hope hope!
  15. According to the tweet, in 2008 there was a survey among male skaters, and one question was to name your favorite pair & dance team. About half the people leaved a blank, but Yuzu answered it: Xue Shen & Hongbo Zhao, Oksana Domnina & Maxim Shabalin. So our mushroom already followed pairs & dance back then! And he said in CiONTU that he watched Shae-Lynn compete and that was pre-2003. A true long-time fs fan!
