Two different songs with 'Hana' in the title... 'Flower Faith' ? And the other one I can't guess. Something no Hana.. he likes both those

 

And... do my eyes deceive me or does one of those song title have the kanji for 'caterpillar' in it? 

 

Does anyone else find it extremely touching that he went to this much lengths to fulfill a fan request?

The 12 song yuzu really liked, I researched and it came up at Chopin Fantasie collection

 

Which is probably this one

 

It's the closest song that came up on the search. 

 

The songs below are mostly famous JP songs

 

And yes, how nice of him. Wonder if he has time to do that nowadays? 

 

 

 

Also since he "really liked" 2 songs from Man in the Iron Mask, just curious to know.

 

Anyone know any skater who's skated to Man in the Iron Mask soundtrack before?

It was Alexei Yagudin´s free program when he won the Olympics and WC in 2002. There are surely others too, but when I hear the music I remember his program.

 

 

Funnily the opening and that picking move before Yuzuru leans back in Origin has always reminded me more of this program than anything Plushy did  :embSwan:

I have just arrived in Japan today for NHK Trophy and decided to go to Nishikawa store nearby to see Yuzu poster.

I just wanted to see the poster and didn't plan to buy anything.

However, when a cute Yuzu is looking at you :winky:

it is so hard to leave without buying something, so I bought something cheap at the end.

:embSwan:

Does anyone remember when the Ghana chocolates with the Yuzu wrappers were going to be shipped? The Ghana page for ordering them is no longer available and I can't remember... I pre-ordered them and I think it was in November, but I'd like to have an idea when it might reach my proxy, as I'm thinking of ordering some other food stuff, to at least bring it all together... As reward for the info, I can take pictures of my chocolates whenever I get them :knc_yuzu2:

I do agree with the idea of Yuzu doing something else next year, maybe something different, to shut up anyone questioning his versatility, and challenging himself to grow further at the same time, then bringing back Origin for Olys. Origin is pretty much his by now, anyway.

 

It's the biggest joke that people question his versality, when Yuzu himself says that versality is his biggest selling point (remember FaOI Kobe talk with Nobu).

I found an announcement on their official site. It says they will ship the ordered chocolates on Nov. 25-26th as scheduled.

I agree, but it's one of the things the recycling complaints touch upon. How he's supposedly settled into the classical style or whatever. I guess with more skaters touching upon more modern music, it seems to emphasize this, but of course, most of them choose to forget he established his versatility early on and has experimented with it before too. I'm not sure how many skaters have ever had, in the same season, two programs as different as LGC and H&L. A lot of the modern stuff skated on these days is very gray-feeling to me - blah and kind of depressing - so I actually don't mind Yuzu staying away from it. But a rock number a la Masquerade, or something playful like LGC or PW, I would welcome any time. (Or, I have been recently obsessed with a few songs from The Greatest Showman and I know some have been done, but I actually don't think I've seen any really GOOD take on The Greatest Show... but I'm not sure it's so much Yuzu's style, it'd be better as a group number, just with Yuzu in the lead...)

I'm very happy that Yuzu brought back PW in the EX gala. Now he has a balanced set of totally different music styles:

Classical, calm and nostalgic SP with Otonal

Powerful, dramatic and fast FS with Origin

Playful, flirty rock EX with PW

 

Full range of styles in one season. And it's very likely that we will see even more styles in the upcoming EX programs.

You really cannot complain about versality this season.

 

 

EDIT: I remember how people were complaining that Chopin and Otonal are so similar...

Well, the choreographies of these programs are completely different unlike many skaters who change the music, but recycle the choreo from the previous season. So people should better shut up about Yuzu, versality and recycling.

Yeah, Man in the Iron Mask and Gladiator are such iconic Yagudin programs that it would be tough not to compare him with Yagudin if he chose one of these soundtracks, especially because he had quite distinct choreography (they include Yagudin's famous steps) and costumes and the fact that he skated them clean multiple times (and won big competitions with them). I love these OSTs, and although I would be curious to know how Yuzu would interpret them, I think in competition judges could not help compare the two programs. Therefore, I'm not sure he would be able to make this program his own as much as he did with Origin and Otonal. For Origin, Plushenko did not have a memorable choreography (mainly because he was a skater who worked more with his hands) and for Otonal, Johnny did not win a big title with it (like worlds or olympics) for the program to be remembered so well internationally.
