But basically 

 

wtf where 4lz

 

where 4f

 

where 4A

 

We've been preparing for mass panic attacks and I just got back from getting whiskey and, huh?

 

 

Wait, so all those conversations here were in good faith and you guys really thought he'd burst out the 4F and the 4A? Was I really the only one who was looking at things realistically and expected the 4Lz at best?

Thank you! And the lady is from Ajinomoto too? She seems familiar to me.

The lady is Ms. Noriko Shirota, the director of ANA's skating club. The guy sitting between Ms. Shirota and Mr. Kurihara of Ajinomoto is Kikuo Makabe, producer of Fantasy on Ice. He often goes to competitions to look for new casts and to invite them to his shows.

Maybe ACI will be "chill", and it will go wild later... :hihi:

 

Or he just didn't show his true hand in that practice session...

(As long as he doesn't hurr himself I don't mind waiting for the jumps.)

ACI is so early in the season this year though...and Yuzu's next competition is SCI at the end of October. Basically he has nearly two months between "first pancake" and having to actually be in tiptop shape for serious competition. I'm not surprised if he currently has training days where he's not doing all the jumps in his repertoire.

I don't know if we'll ever see 4F in competition, to be honest. Hasn't Brian said it's not a strong jump for Yuzu? I'm expecting 4A when he's good and ready to show us, and not before. And it seems clear that Lady Lutz will be making her return this year. 

But, since it's Zu, anything can happen. The word 'realistically' has an entirely different meaning when it comes to him.

Mhm, and last year they said Zu is quadless while he was already training 4t and 4s during FaoI:rolleyes:

Since when Brian knows what sits in Zu's head?:D

If Yuzu said he’ll do 4F in competition, he’ll do it. I don’t think poor Brian has much say in the matter. 

But it might take him a bit to get it up to his standards. No one knows how long Yuzu's career will last - he may or may not have 4F ready by that time. 

 

And guys, remember that Yuzu does occasionally listen to his coaches. Not always, but sometimes.

Again, that was only Brian's opinion. I prefer to wait and see what Zu thinks about it. After all it's him who makes last decision.:shrug:

So, wait, when Yuzu said he'd go for the 4A last season - of course it was derailed by injury but still - what did you think he was actually saying? I think he was making a clear statement of intent and he'll do it pretty much as soon as he has a halfway decent success rate on it.

I thought he was speaking in the heat of the moment and that adding a 4Lz, 4F and 4A is more difficult than making a statement of intent and that contrary to popular belief, Yuzu is not superman. I totally believe he wanted to but I totally didn't believe he'd be able to. So, I actually didn't think everybody here was seriously expecting all of that. I'll be overjoyed - and super-surprised - if we'll see the 4A this season at all, but I'm not expecting the 4F at all.

Hi everyone! New fan here. I thought I'd just be lurking forever but the excitement of this upcoming season is too much for me to just keep quiet. I've been catching up on technicalities of skating in the past few weeks while also obsessing over Yuzu. 

 

Hello and welcome! You've picked a good time to join us with ACI coming up later this week.
