    Technically speaking everyone has an image and are marketable with the right management. It's just that some people appeal to a more niche audience, while others soak up attention like a sponge. So yes, every top skater have a marketable image that endorsers and media can push, but I'm talking about something that's equivalent to love at first sight as far as image is concerned. Comparison right off the top of my head is U.S. media pushing the image of Nathan as super baletic. I'm not going to comment on whether I agree on that, other than baletic==better artistry is bullsh1t and disgustingly Eurocentric. But in this case media keeps saying to the audience over and over that Nathan is baletic and the audience constantly exposed to that view eventually accepts the idea of Nathan being THE baletic male skater. But that's not what I'm talking abt when I say image. In Yuzuru's case, he skated to Romeo and Juliet and interpreted the role of Romeo. But there wasn't a constant, outside push telling people Yuzuru is THE Romeo. People just kind of accepted the concept that Yuzuru is THE Romeo. Also regarding Olys, Yuzuru became ridiculously popular right before Olys actually started. Which leads to a lot of people cheering for him during Olys itself. But winning Olys itself wasn't the reason he became popular.

    I think as far as popularity goes, one of the most underrated factors that contributes is image and marketability. Generally if you have a strong image and seems marketable, regardless of your accomplishments thus far and what media hype you get, someone will eventually find you. With Yuzuru his first surge of international popularity was probably post 2011-2012 season. He was accomplished by all definitions of the word at the time, but was nothing compared to a lot of his other competitors and wasn't getting any amazing amount of media coverage. Except at the time, especially post GPF'11 and WC'12, he had a rly marketable image as "young Romeo" which a lot of bloggers and long time fans bought and eventually, the general audience fell in love with too.

    Sometimes following Yuzuru feels like watching a Disney princess movie starring Yuzuru as the main princess like Wholesome ✔ Did nothing wrong ✔ Deserved better ✔ 999/10 will fite the universe ✔ Pls protec smile ✔ Animal companion(s) ✔ Everyone is suddenly interested in romance ✔ Is wholesome child, someone pls sav ✔ Except it's only enjoyable when it's fiction, this is just emotional trauma

    Lbr fanyus will declare nuclear war on rocks if Yuzuru so much as stumbles on a pebble.

    Currently contemplating declaring war on the concept of ankles, how dare you cause Yuzuru pain, capital punishment

    Well... they're not exactly allowed to misquote him, if they did, purposefully, it would be real sh1tty of them too. But there is of course the high chance the quote is only a partial statement

    Looking into the bright side . . . A) this means he's taking care of himself B) the article is specific abt him not doing on-ice training, so likely he's still doing off-ice stuff so if nothing else he's not loosing too much muscle mass. C) more kuyashi to fuel him with

    Tbh I see a lot of people refer to him as ice prince/princess(granted kind of ironically in the case of princess) and Romeo/Juliet. Ice prince especially

    Even worse they weren't even cheeky about it, those URs were obvious as day, sleep deprived me could have called those no review needed...

    Tbh, imo the big thing abt GPF'17 is pressure. Usually Yuzuru and his GPF streak absorb the pressure from everyone else, but without Yuzuru there, everyone has to take on that pressure and hype head on, instead of having someone to take the impact for them.... truly Yuzuru "nerves of steel" Hanyu
