Happy New Year to everyone!

 

2019 was one of the greatest years for me as a Yuzu’s fan.

In March, I was in the swirl of the  excitement of the audience at Saitama Super Arena, witnessing his Phoenix-like FS.

In June, I witnessed the return of 4Lz and even 4F attempt at FaOI shows.

At the beginning of this season, I found that my dream I had told Ms Ito (his costume designer) before came true.  Yuzu wears the lacy PURPLE costume for ORIGIN!

In October, I witnessed his first win for Skate Canada and finally saw Parisienne Walkways alive.

In December, I witnessed he did 5 quads successfully in a FS including those gorgeous 4Lo and 4Lz at PalaVela.  Then the Swan was the most elegant, the most divinely beautiful swan I’ve ever seen.

 

And now I’m really happy with the fact that he’s done all the competitions healthily (of cause he seemed to be too tired at Nationals, but at least not injured), that he doesn’t stop progressing and pushing his technical and artistic boundaries still now, and that the glitter of his performance is getting brighter and deeper than before.

So I have really positive feelings about the latter part of this season and look forward to 4CC and Worlds!

 

May all Yuzu’s dreams come true and 2020 be the happiest year for him and all of us!

From a calligrapher (Shodo) - who  chose the word "Yakushin" for Hanyu-senshu.  The word means a breakthrough/remarkable progress.   The character has a feather component in the first character and the OP was inspired by that reference.  Wishing from the bottom of his heart for Hanyu-senshu to continue in 2020 on his remarkable journey/road in pursuit of graceful beauty and progress, and for good health and fortune.  May 2020 be fruitful and deeply fulfilling year!

You really need to do everything you can to see him live. There is no experience to compare it to. The  network cameras follow him too closely, in a way that hides his incredible speed and the beautiful patterns he makes across the ice. Figure skating was really meant to be watched in an ice rink. If seeing Yuzu the way he was meant to be seen isn't enough, you get the incredible crowd of Fanyus who greet you warmly and give out cool gifts. It feels like a Yuzu convention, where everyone knows the secret of joy! Most of Yuzu's fans are wonderful, kind people, because Yuzu is an actual angel, and angels attract good and kind people. I swear, you will come away with life-long friends, just from waiting in line.  Save every penny, sell your hair, stop eating out, if someone will help you buy airfare for your teeth, then rip them out of your own mouth with pliers. Whatever it takes - get yourself in an audience to see this magical being for yourself, because television pales in comparison to being there.

 

I've only started following Yuzu since PC and going to competitions since 2018 ACI. I concur wholeheartedly (except for the teeth part).

Happy New Year!

It's been ages since I've posted anything here, but if anyone wants to read a translation of the page in the Sponichi paper today where Yuzu wrote a message in support of the Olympic and Paralympic athletes, I uploaded pictures and my translation here. The writer(editor?) included an article-poem to accompany Yuzu's message, so I also went ahead and translated that as well. It's pretty short, so I figure there are people on Twitter who have already gotten around to it, but it doesn't hurt to have multiple translations.

Here's hoping for a wonderful and healthy year (decade!) for Yuzu. May all his goals be realized and may he have many happy reasons to smile.

 

Many thanks for your nuanced translation and notes!

Self-dental care makes you squirm? Then I highly recommend that you never watch the Tom Hanks movie: CASTAWAY.

It's starting already. Someone really can't say no to kids :tumblr_inline_mg16hfnAAr1qdlkyg:

 

 

 

WOW, is this also Yuzu - only male in a class with girls stretching to do the Bielmann spin?

"seld-dental care?!" I hope you're not a dentist.

He's much more flexible than that.

Happy New Year!  So I'm watching the new Netflix series spinning out and I noticed the opening scene, they are totally filming at the rink for ACI in Oakville. I know that stupid hockey glass obstructing my view of Yuzu from anywhere , among other things!!:rofl3:But of course, a sectionals will never be that crowded.

Both of those pictures are from last Summer (August, I think). Though I agree Yuzu is more flexible than that... but it could be he just wasn't trying hard enough lol We know he does stretching and pilates, so it's totally plausible for that to be him.

 

But it does seem like Yuzu is at TCC, because that Joseph video was new and that did look like Yuzu skating by. I'm not really surprised, to be honest, but I do hope he got to rest a bit. (Or if he flew straight back to TCC, that Brian forbid him from entering the rink until he was fully rested again...) Also, it seemed Jason was there, too, and others, so I guess skaters were mostly back to work anyway.
