  1. Fantasy on Ice 2018 in MAKUHARI

    how in the flapping flap fandom artists are so quick, when I need an hour to get my ass into writing anything...

    Either Jounetsu Tairiku or Athlete's spirit, the first one of Yuzu, covering his move to Canada, iirc. Let's wait for Kaeryth...
  3. [TV Broadcast] Continues~with Wings~

    Yep, none of the channels are working, and replays don't, as well. Guess we crashed the site

    I wish it was only us, then other part of Poland would be able to watch xD Also hi, Greater Poland here, so we're almost neighbours
  5. [TV Broadcast] Continues~with Wings~

    Which part of Poland are you in, because it stopped for me too ://

    And because they are skaters they are also a bit closer to the Shoma and Yuzu's world, so that's probably why xD plus, let's be real for a moment here, if you count Javi and Patrick out, for the last few quads, the only top skaters with well developed came musicality came from Japan, and musicality is one of the things people pay much more attention to in Ladies from what I've observed... Plus it's 100% probable Yuzu and Shoma are people nice enough to be likeable by anybody

    Half of the junior and novice ladies iirc. They are also fans of Shoma, so maybe it's bling that attracts them? JK but it's amusing...

    Ummm, I left the Planet with Gen Thread at 3200?? Where all those pages come from?Prob all those users idk, Ao... And I didn't even check CiONTU and rest of my frequently visited threads! So I guess it's catch up time...go, me I guess

    That's from the fluff piece for NHK special Exhibition isn't it? Where he visited the families still living in a shelters and that lovely old couple had a cat and were cooing at it and Yuzu in one place?Tho this is the only scene of him and the cat... I'll look for it

    I don't really think Yuzuru plans Ciontu with the money on his mind. First of all, the aforementioned tsunami. Second, it's kind of receiption to his marriage with second consecutive gold medal, and you never expect the receiption to return the costs, even if the guests will bring monetary presents, etc. Third, or maybe that should be first, Both Ciontu and The ICE (Asadas' show) this year are produced with "to make seeing skating easier for everyone' as the main goal and with that I believe, if he managed to convince his sponsors and managing team that THIS, the tickets, the main source of income, can be cheaper, he's either has their full credit (including monetary one :D) or full trust in his marketing prowess (which, considering what's happening in Sendai for the parade, is 100% refundable lol). If 66 theaters won't fill it's also okay, since it's symbolism et all (also, I'm not sure if they won't fill- Tenimyu for the final stage usually rents out at least 12 venues for live viewing, some of which are abroad, which has to be more expensive, and fan reports usually talk about full or almost full audiences-and, we're speaking about a freakinf 2,5D musical, not Japanese Winter sports hero)

    Plus, if the existing rules were applied, half of the quads done would get < and <<s along with minus GOE, so it would even out even without the rule change tbh...(heck, Alice lately mentioned how judges can and should apply a minus GOE for the UR jumps even if they don't get called-I guess that fills the bad landing/takeoff -GOE bullet?) so, just working on judges impartiality could help. Also, I wonder how it is about other feds, but mine requires judge that wasn't previously at least Junior level skater to go through seminar/5hours training at selected coach's place, but apparently that's only a one-time thing?? So it's possible judges just don't remember how hard it is what those guys do on the ice and why they should be fair to them (not that it should need a reason in the first place...sigh) And I doubt Yuzuru would get deterred by somebody making to 4A first, since it would be a first FOR HIM

    Yep, and historically you also didn't show your masculinity through your looks but your results-central Europe here *waves*. You could be all small and girlish (which actually was frowned upon as not-fitting not because of how it looked, but because man was supposed to care for a woman while still respecting her, and 'girly' was considered parodying and therefore belittling-though this part somehow got lost in 17th century- especially since, let's face it, a woman managing a fieldwork and work around the house had to be everything but fragile, weak, stupid, etc whatever is associated with feminine now) if you also had something else to show off. So, you could be as bulky as you wanted, but if you had no results-no big family, fertile lands, or, in war time, no battle with foes defeated- you were considered nothing. On the opposite, if you were tiny but hard-working and it was showing, you could be respected-there's a reason why we have those stories about inch tall people becoming heroes. If we were looking only at a perspective of masculinity, in medieval and a bit of later times, Yuzuru would definitely be considered more masculine than people commenting on his appearance

    So I'm somehow the tallest still? I'm 175 (or like, fluctuating between 173 and 178, don't ask me how) Good, good, now only get stronger glasses and I will be able to see the rink even in the back rows, if I ever go. (But god, I don't want to meet Satton I will be scared of crushing her. Good thing Yuzu also is in the 170+club...)

    Just an addition that Shonen Jump is (was?) publisher for Prince of Tennis. Judging by the style of character's popularity rankings (Valentine chocos anyone?) I would say both author and editors know their main audience are ladies, despite what title of magazine has to say. Also, I know PoT should be considered in a category of it's own with how-let's face it- weird this series is, but all the side productions for it suggest that just because these boys are throwing galaxies at each other through their rackets on the court doesn't mean they cannot be happy, sparkly, pretty/beautiful cutepies/memes, depending on a character. If you reverse it to the blood and sweat in practice and smiles and sparkles on the ice rink, you could make a decent manga about skating and still have it less weird than PoT and definitely more shounen-y. Also, before somebody misread this-yep, main fanbase are ladies, but current musical based on the manga runs with half of the cast being fans of the original series( some reading it at the original release time!!), so it's not like it's ladies-exclusive amusement... So in conclusion- f**k oyaji gender norms, give us blood, sweat and sparkles (-ly beauty) this sport consist of!
