  1. Hello all, For those interested, I turned the above translation into pdf format for easier reading. Enjoy! Side note: I printed my own copy of this translation, and as I was stapling it, I realized that this was my first fanyu "merch" ever, since I've been too broke and too cheap to buy any and too unlucky for free giveaways Never would've thought that I'd be eagerly reading an academic paper as part of any fandom. Just another part of the fanyu experience, I suppose This post has been tagged by yuzuangel as [NEWS].
  2. I thought I was the only one! Now, I just stick with "Ten to Chi to" whenever possible.
  3. Yuzu and Shuzo-san doing the fusion dance
  4. WTT LMEY is definitely my favorite of the three. As for Ten to Chi to, I agree with you that the step sequence and choreo sequence have definitely improved. Actually, both programs have evolved in terms of the detail and quality of everything in between the jumps, which makes them so rewatchable and enjoyable despite the mistakes.
  5. Gosh, this chaotic madlad just won't let our hearts rest, huh? Gotta make sure we still get our cardio workout right up until the last minute of the season.
  6. Cross-posting from the WTT Day 2 thread: Max on WC21 Men's event and Yuzu, now with English subs. I know that there are some people who find Max a bit problematic, but I have never really seen any other foreign commentator who knows or even tries to understand Yuzuru as a skater beyond the surface level. "Hanyu taught us...that a jump must be loved. You cannot abandon it on its own, in a corner of the rink. A jump must have something before, something afterwards, it must be valued by the athlete. The Hanyu who wants to land the 4A aims to jump a pe
  7. Whoops, I totally thought I was in General Yuzu Chat. Thanks for the heads up!

  9. I meant it figuratively, but after I wrote it, I saw how it could also be taken literally given the context And as for mediocrity hating excellence, that is quite true in many situations across various fields, though I usually see that attitude more in individuals rather than entire systems or organizations. Yuzu is respected quite a lot by his fellow skaters, but he is unfortunately not the one the ISU wants to excel.
  10. And the season is over! This was such an incredibly tough season for Yuzu, but even with all the challenges--the virus, the earthquakes, the lack of training time, the asthma attack, and the immense mental and emotional burden he carries every time he decides to compete--this is still probably the strongest he's ever been. He just keeps getting better and better. I don't know how he does it. Even though he made mistakes in the past two competitions, the causes were more external, rather than internal (though he would never make excuses for less-than-perfect performances). Without these externa
  11. Yuzu not getting +5s on all clean 3A is always a crime. And the 3A+2T and 3Lo were perfect! I'd like to see anyone do those two things that close to each other with no crossovers in between and without breaking the flow and then immediately jump into a flying combo spin
