  1. The purpose of this thread is to collect important news and media updates related to Yuzuru Hanyu that are posted in the General Yuzuru Chat (and sometimes on various Event threads) starting with August 2017. This will help in making it easier to catch up with Yuzuru news and the (hands down) busiest thread of Planet Hanyu. We want to keep things organized so only assigned Administrators and Members will update this thread.
  2. Share yours and others creation :-) Please put the proper credit including the original source link. Thanks
  3. Post pics, discuss, gush over our Space Kitty :)
  4. The idea of a page for Yuzu on Wikiquote is taking concrete shape now, so I created this discussion thread here on the Planet to share quotes and exchange opinions. The two main purposes of this project: - Bring some structure into the wild potpourri of famous Yuzu quotes, so that fans can find them easily with the exact source and proper translations. - Introduce Yuzu to the world, not only as a successful athlete but also as an eloquent speaker with impactful and iconic words. What needs to be discussed: 1. structure and sorting of the quotes (chronologically or sorted by topic, type of source, etc.) 2. relevance of a quote (should it be included or not?) 3. translation(s) of Japanese quotes 4. reliability of a source These are the manuals and guidelines on Wikiquote: Manual of style Layout guidelines Quotability Limits on quotations Sourcing These are examples of existing pages on Wikiquote that can be used for orientation: Yogi Berra Confucius (this one has many Chinese quotes with English translations) Threads with quotes from and about Yuzu here on the Planet: Translations (folder) Yuzuru Hanyu famous quotes English translation Yuzuru Hanyu quotes Interesting comments thread If you share a quote, it would be great, if you provided these information: 1. Exact wording in the original language 2. English translation, if the original language is not English (preferably from an official source) 3. Exact source with publication date Here is the latest update on the draft: Updated draft page on Wikiquote Request board More quotes from Aoi Hono I & II Quote Book: Original Japanese wording, English translations and original sources Quotes from Yuzu: from his novice/junior years (about his career/life goals) Yuzuru appealing to the crowd that they shouldn't forget about the affected areas of Tohoku 3.11 (I think, it was a speech at FaOI) 'Versatility is my selling point' (from FaOI 2019 Kobe) about the meaning of the music and concept of a program Quotes about Yuzu: from Tarasova and other coaches, skaters and choreographers (---> interesting comments thread) from athletes of other sports (Uchimura, Ohtani, Osaka, etc.) Shinzo Abe's speech at the People's Honour Award (original Japanese wording) Carol Lane: There are good skaters, there are great skaters and then there is Yuzuru Hanyu. A masterclass in how to be a champion
  5. Since the general thread is moving like it's on steroids (which is fabulous, do carry on please, no doping tests present here), it is easy to get all the skating talk lost, including any and all information that we might receive, that others may want to catch up on quickly. So. Skating talk only please. -Layout talk -Practices talk -Competition discussion -you get the drift and I'm lazy. Skating info only please.
  6. Post and discuss old and new videos Old but gold:
  7. This thread is a compilation of translations of the short video lectures by Kazuki Wakasugi of Yomiuri Shimbun. *Part 1 and 2 have already been posted in the General Yuzuru Chat. Exhibition site is here! Hanyu Yuzuru Online Exhibition (July 1, 2020 August 2 August 31, 2020) ETA (8/16/2020): On July 29th, they announced that they were going to extend this exhibition until August 31st.
  8. Since we're all feeling, to put it mildly, a bit shell-shocked after Yuzu's rollercoaster Rostelecom experience, and to take our minds off just how very upsetting it is that he's injured yet again, I thought it might be nice to take some time and think about all the things Yuzu has been the catalyst for in our lives, and share them here. Being his fan has taken satellites around the world and sparked friendships we would never have had otherwise, for example. So, what's your 'Without Yuzu, I'd Never Have..' thing? It can be silly or serious or sweet or surprising, or all 4. Whatever you feel like sharing. I'll go first: Without Yuzu, I'd never have learned to recognize the Japanese national anthem from the first three notes.
  9. Hi everyone! You know the times when words fail to describe Yuzuru's skating, right? At that point, some creative commentators save us with their funny and interesting comments. This is a thread for those that you can't forget. I want to start this with my favourite Johnny Weir comments. Also feel free to add the ones you liked "It looked like water...suspended in soup." "... when he put forth what was the fourth highest score in a short program ever, you know who owns the top 3?" "Yuzuru Hanyu?" "He does." "agile like a freshly born kitten" "Liquid silk on ice."
  10. This is a thread dedicated to our meme lord. "On Planet Hanyu, we don't use emoticons, we use Yuzuticons" Here's the meme album, feel free to use them here: I will update the album with more memes soon! Share yours! :s_drinks P.S. None of the images/gifs belong to me
  11. I believe that fan made videos deserve a separate thread. This is my playlist 1) Yuzuru Hanyu - 羽生結弦 - Heart Of Courage by Duc Khung 2) Yuzuru Hanyu (Hall of Fame) by sylbester Yuzuru Hanyu (Hall of Fame) by 小小玟 3) 羽生結弦~YUDZ you rock! by Sugar Autumn 4) 羽生結弦~live hard die harder by Sugar Autumn
  12. I just wanted to ask whether it is true that Yuzuru Hanyu is the first skater since Dick Button in 1951 to come back and win the world championship after finishing 5th in the first segment. Is this true?
  13. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCACbAMaqBZs6nT7h86UdY9Q username: yyskater this is probably only wishful thinking, but there's a playlist in this acc titled "hope and legacy" and it was created months before yuzu officially announced his free program for 2016-2017. there's saved vids of monster hunter, bump of chicken, and...kara??? lmao. either way this could just be a very skilled poser...
  14. Among us I have seen long-time fans that follow Yuzu since junior days, as well as new ones who joined the ride after the historical free skate at Helsinki. So it makes me curious: When did everyone discover our favorite guy? (To avoid confusion for the polling, I'd like to define "discovered" as "became a fan," instead of "heard of/saw him for the first time.") And for the "how" part, please comment to share your experience of falling for →! How did you come across him and his performances? What was the first program that you watched/that made you hooked? How did you find your way to the fan community?

  16. Otekomachi, a news outlet of Yomiuri interviewed Kazuki Wakasugi, who is in charge of photography in Yuzuru Hanyu Online Exhibition, and Toru Yaguchi, the photographer of "Yuzuru Hanyu 2019-2020" by Hochi. (*Hochi is affiliated with Yomiuri) フィギュアスケートの羽生結弦、カメラマンが見た素顔 https://otekomachi.yomiuri.co.jp/news/20200708-OKT8T228107/ Their comments are really nice, so let me share them excerpted from the article. (Rest of the text in the article is information about the exhibition and the photobook we already know, so I skipped it in my translation. Sorry in advance.) Their comments are shared with their photographs in the original article, so please take a look at it when you have time. Especially the first photo is probably the one Wakasugi san mentioned in his comments, so if you look at it, you will see what he meant more clearly. Figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu, his natural self seen by photographers (excerpts) (Translation from the third paragraph) All the photographs (t/n: in this exhibition) are by Kazuki Wakasugi of Yomiuri Shimbun. On what is fascinating about Hanyu senshu, Wakasugi san says, "When Hanyu senshu appears in the venue, the atmosphere in the venue changes. The audience cheer. We photographers feel tense. Once he starts performing, he moves very fast and jumps very high. While other skaters take time to set up for jumps, Hanyu senshu jumps in the flow of his performance and doesn't make a set-up look like a set-up. He pays attention even to the tip of his fingers and to his facial expressions. He is an athlete and an expressive performer at the same time." He says sometimes he even forgets to release the shutter as he gets drawn in Hanyu senshu's performance and fascinated. The competition in the last season that is most impressive for Wakasugi san is the Grand Prix Final. Looking back at then, he explains, "He was radiating an incredible amount of passion that I could feel it even through the lens. That was so thrilling and moving, and made me a fan. The moment I got hooked on." Wakasugi san, who says he is totally fascinated by Hanyu senshu, pays attention to take a photograph that captures his (t/n: Yuzu's) natural self. According to Wakasugi san, Hanyu senshu's professionalism is so thorough that he tries to entertain the audience even in an official practice session and rarely reveals his natural self on the ice. "I may not be able to rival sempais and freelance photographers in terms of technique, but I am hoping to express Hanyu senshu, including what I felt about him with my photography. To do that, I am trying not to miss the moment he reveals his natural self as well as his performance." In that regard, the photo captured Hanyu senshu's expression after he finished performing in NHK Gala was satisfying to Wakasugi san. He says, "He looks in some way, relieved. I felt as if I had seen him as a person." He also says that he enjoys finding the small changes in choreography by watching him all through the season. "I think about the meaning of the changes in his mood and his expressions while taking photography," he says, and that makes him want to talk about what he felt during a competition with someone after watching it. Wakasugi san says, "I would be happy if this exhibition becomes something that enables fans to share their memories like, "At that time, he performed like this," or "After all, Hanyu senshu is great!" and re-live the touching moments." (Translation from the tenth paragraph) What makes him feel Hanyu senshu's excellence--Toru Yaguchi of Hochi Shimbun says it is that he can hear the music in Hanyu senshu. In other words, Hanyu senshu is making every movement in one with the music. "I can hear the music even when I am concentrating on shooting during a competition. If you remember the music and release the shutter in tune with the music, you will be in tune with his movement as well." There are some difficulties in shooting figure skating that you don't experience in shooting other sports. "For example, in baseball, we are close to the players and able to ask them about what we wonder about the way they play. However, in figure skating, there are only a limited number of competitions, and we can't get close to the skaters nor talk to them. We can only imagine what is happening in his mind. But if we can't feel what he feels, we are just following his movements. We can't take pictures that appeal to the heart of the fans that way," he explains about the difficulty of reaching out to athletes' minds. Yaguchi san is fascinated by Hanyu senshu through taking photographs of him too. "He is always serious not only during the competition but also in practice and before the competition. His words are convincing, and he is also kind. Through getting to know such sides of him, I realized how amazing Hanyu senshu was, and my feeling of respect towards him grew stronger. He is a truly amazing athlete." While editing the photo book, he was aiming to "express Hanyu senshu as a whole by showing multiple pictures instead of one." Also, he made the book square to show the photographs on bigger spreads using the margins effectively. This time, it consists of photographs taken in competitions, but he says, "Next time, I would like to cover the backstage of an ice show/ice shows, focusing on how they produce it/them."

  19. I'm trying to estabilish threads for the topics that made up the natural life cycle of the previous... Hanyu fans gathering iteration So.... Talk about costumes! Your favorite ones, the ones you hate, the ones you'd like to see... :)
  20. Let's bring them back to counter-act the withdrawal syndromes! Here a list of our previous party threads for those who are new to the planet and this concept: LWOFYPP (fave programs) 09/10 10/11 11/12 12/13 13/14 14/15 15/16 16/17 Exhibitions On this thread: Happy Sappy So we were thinking of doing a favorite prgrams streaming party first and then doing a few more season streaming parties in random order. (I am craving the 11/12 season personally!!) @cirelle suggested WR programs which I think could very well be incorporated in to a fave programs streaming party.
  21. This is a record of Yuzuru Hanyu's only clean short program with a 4Lo so far.   I couldn't find it anywhere on YouTube (without geo-blocking), so I uploaded it here. You can find another (edited) version in the second tab.
