  1. Watch when Yuzu's new program is one of the movies the guy directed
  2. honestly im still bitter about the unpublished quad flip attempt footage lol whats so hard to release it
  3. Both of these programs seem to have a universal appeal to fans. As much as I love all Seimei, HL, and Chopin equally at this point, I always find Seimei to be the big favorite so I went for Chopin. Chopin is like that one program I always go back to watch because its short, its consistent, its one that he often did really well so there are many different excellent performances to watch. With Seimei, because he only skated it clean twice and its a fs, I find myself watching it a lot less. And funny thing is I tend to watch the Olympic version the most despite the mistakes. How I see it is, Seimei is easily Yuzu's, but Chopin is the program Yuzu makes it his own.
  4. @yuzuangel can we please have a chopin vs seimei final bracket?
  5. I think this whole thing reminds me of kpop. SME used to be the top entertainment group of the big three along with JYP and YG. They kept having trainees coming to them because as long as the trainees debut, it's a guarantee success. The groups were almost guaranteed a big fanbase due to the reputation of being under one of the big three. But their groups always ended up having one or two members leaving due to mistreatment, dissatisfaction, and their slave contracts. Over time, many fans got bored of their style due to the company's complacency and mismanagement. On the other hand, Big Hit was a much less reputable company and mainly managed BTS at the time. Now Big Hit overtook SME solely on the success of BTS. Eteri camp sorta remind me of SME.
  6. I actually don't think any of them has that much self awareness to improve artistically. if Kostornaia were to leave, she would have left 2 seasons ago when she kept coming 2nd to Sasha. But last season worked so well for her and i'm sure the team has seen her as a gold contender among the three and will shift their focus to get her up technically. I don't see why she would want to leave.
  7. exactly this! And I think its also because judges/feds know these skaters will only get a few dominating seasons so why not maxed out their scores, which isnt a good logic to go by but its what happenning. and yes, because Yuzu's journey is different from other skaters, he also grows differently in his own ways. And even when the system is as unmotivating to him as it is now, he still finds ways to grow for himself and for us.
  8. btw, on today's topic i woke up feeling so watered. happy that Yuzu is safe and so thankful that he is so thoughtful. I hope he can get much off ice training and rest as possible. Lol he is such a biased patootie toward Seimei. eta: dont we all love to talk lol i remember we hit 5000 pages just like it was yesterday
  9. Even if scoring system was changed, how judges choose to score skaters could basically keep everything similar. if we look at how he was scored with his programs pre 18/19 season and how he was scored now, chopin gets virtually the same scores. Look at Zagitova who got 82 pts at PC under the +3/-3 system back then with only triple ltzloop. the idea still stands. she got 82 at worlds19 with the same layout.
  10. I think if he skates to a full program of NDP now the quality would be so much better! Same with Romeo and Juliet 2.0. I think these DW programs didnt do much for him in the past and the choreos were a bit generic, but I think he could bring more details to them now. Thats why even with origin, a program i dont think really fits him, he could still skate very well to it because of the level of skating he has now. He also skated his old programs a lot better at ciontu (but i preferred rj 1.0 original version bc i feel like he performed it better as a 17 yr old) Btw, speaking of him executing impressive elements back then reminds me how much of a scoring circus isu has becoming more and more. considering at the age of 16 he skated to etude with basically similar layout as PW, he got an 82.78 and that was his sb (thats virtually what Zagitova got with triples and no 3a!) While PW got a 101. And okay yes, I agree his skating skills werent on par back then to PW and everything else were lacking in comparison. And okay with Etude Sb his 4T was not good so say he lost a few GOE points. Had he skated etude clean and he would have gotten maybe 88-9 points at judges mercy. But like thats still 13 point gap. But honestly, thats not what Im upset about. what im actually upset about is compared to the ladies in todays field. If we compare him to Alena's sb sp with a less difficult layout, her sb sp received like what? 85+pts? And thats not to mention the pcs for ladies are already leveled with the coefficient as only .8. So converting it to men's scores, she would have scored about 100pts with just triples! Like wth. Not just her but all the ladies with Ultra c layouts. im not saying these ladies are not impressive but you could see how crazy scoring is. So the isu is telling me a 16 yr old with 4t and 3a back in 2011/2012 season is about 20 points less impressive than these ladies?
  11. are also beautiful soundtracks from Studio Ghibli
  12. I have been suggesting this since forever! Finally someone with the same mind! Princess mononoke soundtrack is also great and I feel like has more dynamic for a fs
  13. Id like to see him skate to Les Miserables
