I think is harder to convert someone into a fan of any male skater since skating is seen more as a ladies sports, like how female gymnastics is more popular than its male category. I used to think like that and only watch videos casually of Sasha Cohen, Michelle Kwan etc but they never got my attention. I was not really even excited about male skating at sochi and was only in for the ladies primarly, that is obviously until I saw Yuzu.
I can say I turned my sister into a fan since I have not stop talking about him for the past four years so she knows his story and programs (her faves are seimei and poto), she even watched some events with me in the past. She thinks that while every skater works hard Yuzuru just seems to really work harder and he has a passion for skating that shows every time he steps on the ice. My parents also know him and respect him but they both prefer to watch the ladies. Some of my friends know I like him but they are not interested in the sport lol.
