  1. Its a nice song but I think its fit better as an SP. They need to mix it with another song to work for a LP imo. Its quite safe (slow music) and challenge choice (require him to be more emotional) at the same time. It would more interesting if he really understand the lyrics. I'm curious to see angst Shoma lol
  2. I'm not surprise if he reuse both Otonal and Origin, but not surprise about new program as well. In April 2017, he said he's open for ideas about new programs for Olys season, and we know how it turn out . I still remember how the whole fandom meltdown when he skated Chopin 3.0 at Faoi Its only 5 weeks until ACI.
  3. There's no reason to believe TSL since they never have any actual information about Yuzu. I read the tweets and its just their speculation, and alot of fans speculate the same things way before as well. Most of the time they talk about him and put his name on videos just for the sake of clicks. I read a russian source said he trained 4A and quint in harness in April. So in term of rumor, nothing new.
  4. Of course, I think I should make it clear that Wakaba has better projection than Kaori but Kaori is not bad. The tiny ice show rink may effect on most program look like, especially with Kaori and her great speed. At some point, I thought she would jump out of the rink. Milano Skyfall is iconic but the COC/Lombardia performances are amazing as well.
  5. I can't say I'm not disappointed that Shae and Shoma collab turn out like that. I don't like great spirit, the program and concept are messy, and imo, it doesn't fit as a competitve program Kaori's LP does remind me abit of Skyfall. What make Skyfall amazing is Wakaba's wild and abondoned energy and her projection the audience. That's what Kaori lack, but it would improve as the season goes. For now she just try to keep up with the music, the same with her SP. Her arm and upperbody movement need a lot of works. Marin's LLL is actually quite nice, better than Lovers. She's so charming and know how to perform, the way she move across the ice and her soft knee bend are to die for. Her jumps are a big sigh and its sad to see.
  6. Alina's SP is mile better than Poto, she actually feel the music and look more relax.I like this song's version. The choreo is quite average but I don't have high hope. Her spins and 3F entry are amazing. Wish they let her hold her spirals and movements longer. Love the costume and I wish her keep it. Rika's LP has potential, this is very challenge program for her in term of IN/PE/projection which are always her weaker part (the same with her SP). The music cut is ok, but because of 5 pieces it lack of flows at the moment, the same with the program itself. Her spins look improved. I think everyone talked all about issues that Nathan's SP has and I agreed. If you muted the music, you would've thought he skate to Nemesis. This music require softer movements and hold the position better. When I heard this song, i think of Patrick Chan or Jeremy Abbott. There's a lots of movements from Nemesis and Caravan as well and at some point they don't fit the music. The costume is boring as usual. Rika, Alina, Nathan all looked rush in their perfromances, understandable because the program is still new to them. I have hope that Rika would fix it as the season goes, not sure about Nathan and especially Alina.
  7. I think its become this big because we hear the music and I believe this is the first time that happen. Most of the time those TCC IG clips are muted or its skater's own music. I have no doubt this is just mistake, and its very unfortunate (you can hear Evgenia's LP music in one of the clips) and hopefully all people involved would be more careful. I dont know about TCC's policies and how Yuzuru and his team deal with all these sns meterial but I hope this won't effect too much on that junior boy and Yuzuru. Again, there's no confirmation atm. We'll know everything by ACI or even sooner *cross all fingers* and have a whole season to talk and complain about that.
  8. Some people always find reason to mock anything Yuzuru does. Last year, when he announced Otonal and Origin, some bash him for choosing western music/choreographer and only idolize western skaters. Some folks often say he can do whatever he want but won't lose any chance to criticize any decisions from him. After WTT2017, most fans hope he won't reuse LGC because that program is a trauma but now many people beg him to recycle it. If you don't like Origin/Otonal just because of Johnny and Plushenko, I would say its a pity because out of great music cut, choreo, transision, interpretation, and Yuzuru's own input into those programs, you choose to focus on that tribute thing. Remember, this is his 10th year on senior circuit, and his competitive time won't be long. Its already a miracle that he still compete. Injuries can take him away anytime, there's not alot of chance to watch him skate. He's so private so we don't know what he think most of the time or only know about it way after thing happen, I hope none of us have to regret about what we say/write about him.
  9. If recycling means he's healthy for the whole season, I'm all for it. I love Origin enough to forget about the tribute thing. Remember that this is the music he loved when he's a child and always wish to skate to it, its not really different from Kolyada with Carmen, Evgenia with her programs and multiple skaters out there. Honestly, I think some people hate Johnny and Plush too much and somehow let it effect to the way they see Origrin and Otonal and IMO, its abit unfair. Its unfortunate if he's indeed reuse Origin and we knew it by now, by this way. Don't get me wrong, I don't blame the skater who upload that IG vid. Some of the jokes on twitter make me feel abit uncomfortable and i hope they know this "mistake leak" is not funny. There's must be some reasons that Yuzuru so secret about his programs/layout and plans. I don't doubt that Yuzuru and TCC might know about this vid already. Maybe its a good thing that there's no media day this year.
  10. I dont think recycling has anything to do with media day. In 2015, he skated Seimei in ice shows, reused Chopin and still had media day.Media days used to be in early Aug, except 2016 (mid sept) and 2018 (late Aug) because of injuries. Maybe because of scheduling or he want to announce his programs/plans in a different way. Or at least I hope so. As long as he's healthy, i will take anything
  11. Maybe he decide to focus more on training. Lets be real, doing media day for 2 days, with multiple journalists and cameras require some preparations, physically and mentality. I just hope its not relate to his rehab or injuries. The ACI is not confirmed.
  12. I think its more like the style/ theme of those programs. He's just back to japan from Eteri's camp, pretty sure he hasnt get his choreo yet, at least the SP since Shae worked with Mariah last week.
  13. This account is reporting Team Japan's programs for this season : https://twitter.com/AxelQuadruple Kaori Sakamoto : SP : No root, choreo by Shae Lynn LP : The Matrix, choreo by Benoit Richaud Mai Mihara SP : La Gitana, choreo by David Wilson LP : Fairy of the Forest / Galaxy piano version, choreo by Lori Nichol Yuna Shiraiwa : SP Concertino Bianco, choreo by Stephane Lambiel LP- Amen OST, choreo by Benoit Richaud Mako Yamashita : SP : last season's program LP : Scent of a woman, choreo by Mihoko Higuchi Keiji Tanaka SP : Hip Hip Chin Chin, choreo by Massimo Scali LP- Sherlock Holmes OST, choreo by Kenji Miyamoto Koshiro Shimada : SP : Stay by Oliver Tompsett, choreo by Sarah Dolan LP : The Artist, choreo by Stephane Lambiel
  14. Jeff never does half of amount programs Shae took this season. Working with Yuzuru make more people know about Shae but she already did choreo for top skaters before him. I dont know, maybe alot skaters want to change their style and Shae is known for up beat, morden programs. She did programs for top 2 men (Yuzuru, Nathan) and it might contribute abit. But I agree it seem too many at this point, like its easier to list skaters who dont have choreo from her this season. Benoit seem to be the#2 popular choice. Beautiful storm was by Tom Dickson. I wish we could see more programs from him, although i heard he's abit picky.
  15. I like Kaori's sp choreo, the music cut is good, lots of potential with this program. Its still messy so far and she need alot of work for her arm movements which is often her weak point. The IN is not there yet but still very early. This remind me abit of Wakaba's Energia, just abit less wild. Kazuki is a great performer with energy and always commit to his choreo but that MR program is not good. The stsq/chsq are the highlights but the rest is bland. And some parts looked awkward to me.
