Ah yes, character development. From Shogi team captain to honor roll student to University Teaching Assistant Zu. 

I see how this goes. The last one does look extremely smug....he knows the answer and how to solve this complex question while half asleep, and he isn't telling you, you as the student must be hard working and diligent in your efforts. 

(Speaking of which, wonder what the waiting line would look like if he did work as a teaching assistant? :13877886:)

I also think it's fairly low... I think he'll be far more focused on Worlds. He went in 2017 probably just because it was in Pyeongchang. And before that I think he went pretty much where he was told. From my understanding, 4CC was usually where federations sent their B teams. It's rather rare that the top of the top go there. Being so close to Worlds, there's not much point unless they really need the mileage. The traveling isn't really worth it. And even though it's technically not that far this time, I'm not sure a trip to California in the midst of preparations for Worlds in Toronto makes much sense (I'm not sure, but I think it'd also be a bit of a temperature change and that's always risky, as it can lead to colds and/or fevers and with Yuzu aiming for Nessie, I'd really rather he never sets foot on ice while sick again...). That said, it is the only title he has left and he might want to fight it out with Nathan again - assuming Nathan is going - one more time before Worlds. So who knows... but I wouldn't hold my breath. (I wouldn't be surprised if, in the circumstances of a good result at Nationals, Daisuke might go to 4CC, though...)

I actually think there's high chance Yuzuru will go. He said he want to compete as many comp as possible this season. And tbh, Yuzuru often doesn't do well after a long break (PC is the exception). Japan often send their top team to 4CC unless its Oly season, and yet last season they send the Olys team minus Yuzuru to 4CC. I think it would depend on his condition, if he's healthy enough, he would go 

As for Dai, even if he get good result at Nats, to compete at 4CC/WC, he need to get TES min at a senior B first.

Lol when you mention shogi, my mind goes to Yoshiharu Habu (the person who share the same kanji name with Hanyu) xD and Mr. Habu wears glasses :gla:

A trip to 4CC might be possible this season if he's healthy. A trip to California is far different from a flight to Asia, where 4CC is so often held (not to mention only 3 hour time diff)... if he's feeling really good and 4A is actually on the agenda, who knows.

Yuzu in California for 4cc!! In my very same state??? Plus the ticket price is ridiculously expensive!!! :dpooh:

I do too. Even before this season there was the talk he needed more comps, hence the 4CC with his second silver, not just that it was at PC so knock on wood, if he's fit, I think there's a high chance he'll go.

Interview from Figure Skating Life magazine

Thank you for the translation @gladi!:thanks:

Haha you beat me to it!

 

I am happy to see how passionate Yuzu is of his two programs this season. There are nothing better than to see a skater skates to the music s/he enjoy and be an integral part of the creative process as well. It really adds to the performing and intepreting aspect of the skate. I think these two programs have a lot of potential. I have no doubt when they are performed as they are envisioned, they will become masterpieces.

You could wait and see if someone who can't go will want to sell their tickets cheaper. Right now there's lots of tickets available so waiting is safe, but I imagine that if Yuzu announces his participation, they'll sell quickly.

Given the price of the tickets, if he does decide to we will hear the shrieks of joy from their accountant  right round the world....
