    I always start off the season extremely optimistic (or should I say, foolish?). Fellow friends will know I always say "maybe this will finally be his undefeated season" at the start of every season. It's a high order but I always feel he can do it . I'm just grateful to see more of Yuzu's skating, when I first became a fan in Sochi I thought he would retire immediately after Pyeongchang so anything and everything is a delightful bonus.

    @LadyLou I’m not sure I’m the best archive but I’ve basically saved up all Yuzu clips since I became a fan during Sochi. I’m going through the process of putting them all in folders within folders in a way that sounds a lot like what @lazuliblade has but it’s nothing sophisticated. I just have a pretty pretty good memory when it comes to Yuzu I usually remember very minute details about things that really interest me and Yuzu is very interesting!

    It's true . He said it in an interview for Ice Jewels. This seems very inline with his personality in my mind.

    I think he’s actually admitted somewhere he keeps his three Skate Canada silvers by his bedside.
  5. Regarding practices, the only time I remember practices being packed was last year at Autumn Classic, and even then it wasn't completely full at the beginning of the morning. Open practice is usually unassigned seating and first come first served, the only time I've seen where there was was assigned seating has been for practice sessions for competitions in Europe and it really depends on the organizers. Skate Canada usually does unassigned seats for practice, and these practice are maybe 50% full at best since not everyone who has a ticket attends. If you want the very very best seat for practice you'll want to get there early, but I don't think there's a reason to line up at the crack of dawn and camp out. Autumn Classic was a small venue and this is a full sized arena.

    Didn’t France straight-up use acrylic? Their “medals” looked like something you can make using a piece of plastic and a 3D printer. The glass at least looks classy and has a design. The French stars looked pretty thoughtless and something you’d find in elementary school class.

    I wish we could get a net-worth on him! He doesn't even do as many commercials and endorsements as he could, but the ones he has must be lucrative. I'm also a bit curious if he gets a cut of all the photo exhibit merchandise, they must've sold a ton if you think about those lines.

    Each fan is probably a bit different in what they value when they go watch figure skating, so it'll influence where you want to stay. My personal experience is that once competition and practice starts, I have very little time to do anything else (I like going to practices, I won't camp overnight but will sometimes go early). On those days I prefer to be staying somewhere I can get to and from the rink quickly as a lot of events end late. Since I'm not in the room where I'm staying often I usually don't care if it's very large or the hotel has a ton of amenities because I'm not likely going to be there to use them. My main goal is convenience, then comfort. Food is another factor for me and so is transportation, I avoid places I'll need to take cabs and prefer trains/subways or locations I can walk from. If I can get to and from the rink and to decent variety of food options and back, that's a big bonus. I leave the sightseeing and other stuff to non-competition days most of the time so I'm cramming things in at a pretty fast pace, I'm always exhausted at the end of these trips and I tend to get very little sleep as I'm a night owl. As for couch surfing, if I'm traveling alone as a woman that's much too risky. I'm fine borrowing a couch from someone I am good friends with, or even an acquaintance or a fellow fan, but it's a big no if it's an absolute stranger and I have valuables with me. The risk is not worth the savings. It's also a lot less secure in case circumstances with the host changes - I've had this happen before with a casual acquaintance I was going to stay with and we had to book a hotel very last minute.

    LOL this is probably closer to the truth than anything.

    I wonder if Korea rejected the offer to host the GP early on and in order to “sweeten” the deal when they approached Finland they promised to assign both Alina and Yuzu if they agreed to take it on. Maybe they made the same proposal to Korea too.

    I enjoy his non-styled casual look the best :) He wasn't kidding when he said he dresses like a typical athlete. I'm also thankful he doesn't bleach/lighten his hair or perm it, I'm usually not a fan of any of those styles for Asian men (or women, really). I also get the sense that unless he's competing he doesn't pay that much attention to his style and his clothes look very practical (yet comfortable while being high-end), but when he's competing he wants to be the thing that shines the brightest.

    I totally agree with this, I definitely think the fabric on the sleeves could’ve been attached so they drape better on the arms, in still photos it looks awkward for me so I personally think it can use some improvement. To draw a comparison to another costume embellishment I’d compare Etude to H&L shoulder scarf. Both conceptually are very similar with the fabric on the right shoulder, but the length, bunching, and the way it’s attached to the body makes a big difference in how the costume as a whole looks still in photos. Etude looks gorgeously swept up and drapes elegantly across the shoulder. H&L on the other hand, I’ve always felt it tried to copy the same effect but didn’t quite get it right. It looks like it’s sewn across the length of his shoulder and it doesn’t drape as nicely over his body (maybe due to the length). Haru yo Koi’s sleeves falls closer to H&L shoulder scarf execution to me in that I see what they were aiming for but I think it could be a better still.

    Somehow they got all the skaters to sing except Yuzu and Shoma . In all seriousness though, did they not even get to sing in the chorus? Also chuckling that Ayumu and Shoma weren't even asked to lip sync.
