    I didn't do any Wanikani reviews while at Skate Canada and came back to 800+ sitting in the queue. I did something similar (but not as bad because the event was shorter) at ACI. Why do I do this to myself??? :headdesk:

    Dude... dude... I feel your pain. 


    (Stuck at +1000 reviews since basically I started my new job and I don't have energy to study every day anymore)


    Guys, I need to thank you! Really!!! You are amazing! :7938863:


    I didn't know about Wanikani before, so I had to check it out after your posts. That website is AMAZING!!! Those crazy mnemonics are the right method for me and after few days I've learned much more than after a year of Japanese classes. I don't have much will to find and learn new vocabulary alone, so I was a bit lost in my progress, but mnemonics are making everything so much easier and so much fun! I am still at the second level, so I know, it will get difficult really quick, but even so I am learning tons of stuff every day.


    Thanks for the tip.

  2. Yes, count me in as well! I am terrible with names up to the point it is frustrating for the others. Like I hear someone introduce himself and when we shake hands I don't remember the name already. :13877886:

    I will probably prefer the PH nickname, because pronouncing my name is a little nightmare for many languages and it is longer than needed in everyday conversation, but I don't mind showing both. I am just happy I can join the Poohrino party. :7938863:

    beautiful interview ,as usual Matsuoka Shuno brings out the most interesting aspect of Yuzuru




    I feel so sad hearing The-Double-Olympic-Gold-Medalist say he is not confident.


    I know he is strong and competitive and he will overcome this, because is is Yuzuru Hanyu. But I am still angry that this can happen, even for a slight moment. I hate narratives.


    In what world should the Champion, the GOAT, feel this way?

    Yes, we can watch all your channels, too, but only on TV.  On the internet ČTV is always geoblocked for us :(  And unfortunately, I don't have any TV, I've never really needed it.  

    :smiley-shocked032: That's adding a whole new level to this world's insanity. I am able to watch your :2 right now on the internet, but not :1. They are blocking probably only some programs, depending on the bought rights, at least for us. No idea, what is ČTV doing with the restrictions. I thought, they would allow you to watch probably the ČT original programs at least, or other that you have rights for... 


    Well, one is learning new things every day. :68468287:

    Well, Slovakia (RTVS) has got the TV rights but in the TV program there is nothing FS related for this weekend, not even a delayed broadcast or any recap :(

    I really hope the YT stream won't be geoblocked for us, otherwise it's much worse compared to having eurosport.


    Are you able to watch the Czech one, or is it restricted? I can watch your TV, it would be odd, if it(our programs, I mean) was restricted for you. 


    Edit: On the other hand, one can never be sure. Recently, I've watched a Czecho-Slovakian movie, that was dubbed in Czech. Shocking experience. :68468287: Anyway, try to watch on CT Sport, if you don't mind Czech commentary.

    What network would that be, then? I thought the sole exception to the European rule are the nordic countries and Russia.

    Yes, Czech TV. That's the one (in the list provided above), streaming all GPs this season. They usualy don't show GP though, sometimes GPF and Euro + Worlds of course. I guess it's because Uncle Brez is skating and FS is somewhat popular here for decades. 

    Sadly, Czech commentary can be a bit... how to put it... our commentators are usually very neutral, often don't know much about skaters. The only time I've heard someone praising Yuzuru without any "but", was last Worlds Gala. Even with other skaters, I think our commentators are just careful not to praise any "non-Czech" skaters too much.


    I have no idea, if it is possible to watch without commentary, or if it is blocked, but I guess, since it is Czech TV, it will be accessible only locally.

    Right. Fun fact: in several languages (French, Italian, Spanish ...) figure skating is called "artistic skating". So, yeah... let's call it, uhum, a cultural difference of opinion. :english2:

    It was basically "Oh, Nathan was only at 75-80% at JO so I thought 'Hanyu is screwed'" from Dave


    Ouch  :rofl2:


    Sometimes I pity the boy. They made up hyping narratives and super floated scores and all that is pretty much keeping him from developing into a really great skater. Wasted potential.

    Also I don't know if this is true but it made me laugh like an evil overlord....during Nathan 'skate they mentioned Yuzuru too (nothing againt Medo of course, but I love that even when he's not there he's the reference LOL)



    Hilarious! :rofl2:

    That explains the 'Yuzuru Hanyu from China' incident.

    Yuzu's interview right after Origin at ACI was aired a few minutes ago.

    He was unbelievably beautiful here... I was waiting for this TV program the whole week and I'm so satisfied now :67638860:




    I don't know... it is really painful to watch. I don't understand him, but even from his face, I can tell, he was unhappy. Like very unhappy. To the point he has tears in his voice. I think he was very kuyiashi. 

    I am okay with Yuzu messing up his elements and getting less points for that reason, but this... this is just a painful injustice. I am still salty and seeing this is not helping. :deadinside:

    Wow, you've done a great job! This is how tragic the swedish wiki page for Yuzu looks... :dislike: It's actually kind of painful to stare at for longer than a few seconds at a


    Well, check the Czech one here. There are some result charts, but I can't with the "Juzuru Hanjú". :facepalm: Sometimes I really hate the efforts to make everything look like a Czech word.

    (I guess I have some work to do...) :darklordyuzu:

    Questions is, did Yuzu actually put that costume on or is photoshopped? :xD:

    If he did, I can't even imagine what did Lotte need to promise to get him into this thing. Did they send like half of the value of Japan to a charity? :notamused:

    At least his face looks beautiful, natural and normal in these pics. And this costume isn't even that bad compared to the old pink and blue-green monstrosities. Without the frills, it would actually be a quite nice, form-fitting costume. :nod2:

    And he is at least smiling. In blue-green monstrosity his face is more like "please hurry with the photo, I want out of that thing" kind of smile.

    Wow Xylitol really hates Yuzu I never forgive them for this:yuck: :

    Okay, that thing is terrible. But I am sorry... he looks beautiful! 






    Dory? Beautiful! I love Dory! It has some shape. I know, those wings.... but come on, it is beautiful!


    But this monstrosity? NOOOOO! That is unfair! What is it supposed to be? IT has no shape. Where is The Waist? What about those shoulders?

    We just gotta embrace all facets of the Hanyu. :D 

    Honestly, this is some weird Disney combo of Prince Charming and Alladin. Put Ken in there too. 

    I wish they would do a commercial with sweaty Yuzu instead.
