When u think about it, it's the FIRST time since 12/13 season that's he's going to do ALL* available comps. OMG, this is such an achievement given he's at 10th season already :smiley-happy105:

 

ALL*: CS + all GPs + Nats + All championships + Olympic if available

13/14 should count, too, because he didn't do 4cc, but he did olys, which is more demanding lol

Just because he thought it would be cool

What's his general feel?  I need my own resident translator.  Maybe it will show up on YouTube with Eng subtitles.

His answer here seems kind of sad. I hope he doesn't actually think he's inferior just because judges don't give him good score.... :sadPooh:

Interestingly enough, I saw his words in a completely different way... as if he is rising above the undeserving scorying system and staying true to himself, his skating & his art.. Of course it is heartbreaking when it is not rewarded with the scores, but in the end - these are just scores, and staying true to himself is much more important 🙏👑💖💜

This is very rough, but he said that he was nervous before the program because the quad salchow had been troublesome. He heard the cheers from the audience and that was a great source of support and inspiration for him. The interviewer said that the quad salchow received high marks and Yuzu felt happy with the jump himself. Interviewer talked about the second jump element – the quad toe loop-triple toe loop combination – and said that it was a different layout than his free skate at the PyeongChang Olympics. Yuzu said that there had been a time when he did this program with this layout and he felt that he could express himself better with this layout and that is why he chose to go with it. He said that there were little changes throughout the program. He said that there were a lot of details that he felt he could improve on and that's what he wanted to do. When it was over, he said he felt like he did at the PyeongChang Olympics after the short program when he said "I'm back." It was first time that he felt as if he skated a program as himself and in a manner befitting himself. He thought that it was a performance that he could be happy about from the bottom of his heart.

Yeah, he sounds much like... so done with scoring. Like "I'll do my best, if you reward me, it's good, otherwise, it's just ... that, there's nothing else to be done about it I guess"

So, I've been using this website - www.wanikani.com - for a while now to learn kanji. It has a colour scheme.  Today it finally dawned on me what part of that colour scheme is. 

 

Behold, SEIMEI as learning aid: 

 

well, it made me chuckle anyway.

Thank you for the translation.  I think he is "back".  This is the first season in years that he hasn't had an injury.  He is stronger.  And, I believe, he has had some time since Nationals to remember what it means to him to skate truly for himself.  He is best when he internalizes the music and then translates it into movement. That was never going to happen with "tribute" music.

I think that a month of training the "new" programs is going to produce something amazing.
