    I love your way with words. Hope the benevolent overlord see that and grant our wish. Now I need to rewatch full music clip of 30STM's From Yesterday. Reading the letter has evoked my memory on it.

    I will share a lil bit of my experience with the commentators and my take on it then. As a new-ish fan with limited background info on FS I do rely on commentators to gain some additional insights and information from a performance. That is why, up until now, I enjoy ITA ESP and Kurt's (even with all his talk about Pooh bear ). Also, I can understand the criticism on how commentators should say unbiased things. I do not recall listening to the debated BESP commentary, but I do remember being puzzled when I watched Spanish commentaries back from GPF 2011 where the lady said Yuzuru has juniorish skate (CMIIW, I might confuse it with another competition, it was from his early years though). I also remember looking for another source to confirm about the said juniorish skate comment and find it to be untrue. Biased commentary is a double-edged sword: When a fan (especially a well-informed one) get it there can be criticism. I suppose that is the main reason why BESP toned down their bias. For a not well-informed one fan like me, it will just give an opportunity to learn more about Yuzu. And I think this can be considered as a positive outcome. For antis, it will just serve as weapon. We can see how they will use it as a justification and spread comments about "xx said yy about skater A" and so on. But on indifferent people, it will just a passing information that will soon be forgotten. I don't really think some indifferent people will go on spreading criticism about some athletes. They got better things to do with their time. Thus, I think it will just serve as a proof that people will see (and hear) what they want to see and hear. (Note: you can replace biased commentary with "facts" and it will still have the same outcome. Bizzare, isn't it? ) TL;DR this is the internet era. There are so many source of information out there and when people are interested enough they will find additional information and avoid the unreliable one (reliable one here being relative to their preference, of course ). Now, should BESP give a valid commentary? Well they damn should at least try if they don't want to be considered incompetent by FS fans.

    My guess is, if it is indeed spread by antis, is that they try to project him as a weak person since usually a week person is the one being bullied. Well, just shrug it off since we all know how strong he actually is, don't we? I remember watching a video about him visiting his old school and there are some part discussing this.

    There are 4 that I watched the most: Seimei - Oly 2018 >> no doubt my favorite Notte Stellata - Oly 2018 >> feels like his most ethereal, calm one Hope and Legacy - Worlds 2017 Romeo and Juliet - Worlds 2012 Other than those top 4, my fave are: POTO - WTT 2015 PWW - Oly 2014 Ballade - Oly 2018 >> Fave costume and that Ina Bauer... LGC - Worlds 2017 >> his interaction with the audience Change - TOI 2014 Requiem - Worlds 2016

    Well, all controversies aside, I'm happy I made them watch. Now they know why I greatly admire Yuzu and prone to gush about him sometimes.

    So we're back to costume discussion? I 'forced' two of my non-FS-fan male friends to watch and comment on several of Yuzu's programs. The result is as follows (not surprising): - Seimei Olympics: great program, great costume, impressed with the sincerity of Yuzu's bow to the fans. - Hope and Legacy: show off (since he opened it with quad loop), dislike the white shoulder patch, got chill near the end of the program. Very impressed with the performance. - Notte Stellata: almost close down the YouTube after 10 seconds due to the deep V in the costume, like the single axel and the triple axel. - Let's Go Crazy: Purple? Prince? Get me outta here (in his own words).

    Thank you for your concern. I am in Jakarta and we felt nothing, but those in Surabaya and Bali can felt the shock. Thankfully the early warning for tsunami has been removed. Hope everyone is okay.

    The post Hanyu era

    I think I will go with 2nd option and be more a casual fan, but I will not drop my google alert for "Yuzuru Hanyu" either. Hopefully he will not retire so soon, though. I still need to see him live at least once.

    I do not expect him to suddenly unleash 4A either, better focusing on his health first. He has set his priorities and acted upon them so well though, so I am not too worried about that. Also if there are other skaters who want to do it first they have my full blessing. I am certain their cleanly landed 4A video (if they landed it first) will be studied intently by Yuzu though...

    Cannot blame them tho. Just see how many likes and retweet they got from Yuzu contents.

    LOL. I love his/her works. I am using one of those (Yuzu and hydrangea) for my phone wallpaper.

    Reigning Olympic Champion, Ice Prince, Superstar Skater, The Quiet Genius, The Virtuoso Skater, Hyper-Famous Olympic Star. Yuzu and his many aliases.

    My initial reaction from seeing the pic is that Yuzu needs to start using gold marker to make signature.

    Well, I think there is also the thing that some people will set a higher goal everytime they reach their current one. Happens with earphone; you think that your new one is perfect until you get used to it and want something better.

    Isn't Worlds 2017 H&L is a perfect FS *only*? Do you mean there is a shift in his opinion about a perfect skate? Like, previously, it is about winning in a landslide even when all his competitors skating their best--and now it is about a skate that leaves lasting impression to the viewers? Those kind of skate IMHO is easier to reach with EX programs, but Yuzu might have a different idea.
