I'm going to watch it with iSakura http://www.isakuraiptv.com/

You will need 96 channel option (it's US$3 for 3 day trial) as it will be aired on CS TV Ashahi 2. I've tried to use KAST but don't know how to use it to stream it on KAST so I'm sorry but I won't be able to share it...:13877886:

 

 


I use this site sometimes https://trast.live/ its good to stream browser tabs and you dont need to make an account or anything but it only supports 15 people so it wont be useful to share here but in case you need it for your friends or so in other occasions. I tried KAST and I couldn't navigate it at all.

I am watching on ForJoy TV, on channel 57 (CS Asahi #2).   I tried iSakura,  but I switched back to ForJoy because the quality of much better although it doesn't have Fuji channels.  I use iSakura on short term basis if I wanted access to Fuji, but I generally don't like Fuji channels and don't miss it at all on ForJoy - except at ISU championships where they have the rights.  

Ok the Yuzu Music Concert starting now!

Oh wow, the concert is opening with a dramatic rock Vivaldi!  Never mind that Yuzu has not skated to it (yet)!

And the lady musicians are all wearing colorful gowns which makes the orchestra look like the Heian court, with the big wa-daiko (drum) at one end.

I remember now that iSakura stream is really unstable and gets cut off whenever they're showing figure skating or Yuzu related stuff for some reason...:13877886: I will have to download it later so I may find out how to upload it onto PH...

Don't know if this has been posted yet but it seems that Yuzu has won a certain healthy skin award.

ForJoy is very stable.  I can download into my ForJoy file, but don't know how to share... will have to figure it out later.  Meanwhile - Live Mission Impossible is intense and dramatic!  So cool to see women at the drums and on trumpet!

Once you've downloaded it, you can upload the video onto PH video page. Just like you post your response, you can choose file on your computer to upload it. If you say the quality of ForJoy is better, maybe you can try uploading it later to share  with the satellites :)

Live version of White Legend is amazing - and you can see which Japanese instruments are being played, and the rhythm/intonation is Japanese while the melody is Russian/Tchaikovsky.  I wish Yuzu would skate to it again, in gala or competition.

White Legend is one of my favourite program of Yuzu (so many of them though...) I miss his sit twizzle into the spin part

Oh, the tenor portion could be better: Notte S and Phantom vocal parts were ever so slightly off key and japanglish...  sorry.

I miss Origin from SCI Kelowna - it was intense and gorgeous, and the violinist at this concert captures it so well!   And Seimei, of course, with live instruments is so special.  This is a national treasure that we can proudly share globally.

This was a fantastic program, with very good sound and no CM. It was good hear the entire pieces of some, not just the skating cuts. Just thinking how good the skating would be with live orchestra, like the Seimei at the MOI.

In the future, I hope Yuzu will develop his own program Continues with Wings into a truly artistic/cultural event, combining quality music with high level skating performance.  This music concert is a glimpse into that future. Currently, most ice shows are such a mixed bag of low-brow stuff interspersed with occasional great performances, but not presented as a cohesive artistic program.

Hanyu, with his ice skates still on his feet, barely had time to evacuate the building before the waves struck.” 

I think they overdid it with drama here - the ground shaking for good five minutes would have been enough to scare anyone. The waves didn’t strike that place, luckily, as far as I gathered. 

It's not the first time media - especially Western media - make it sound like Yuzu was affected by the tsunami and it bothers me every time. His story is plenty dramatic as it is, with the ground shaking hard enough he couldn't stand, crawling out of the rink on all fours, the rink feeling like it might collapse, although it didn't, but it did get badly damaged, his home being damaged, which is why he had to be in the evacuation center for 4 days, before moving elsewhere (probably a temporary home, then living without electricity, gas, water etc. The tsunami did strike Sendai, but the outer parts of it, nearer the coast, I think, and the devastation was incredible, but it didn't reach the inner parts of the city, like where Ice Rink Sendai is. Simply checking a map, you can see Ice Rink Sendai is really far from the coast.

 

That said, whenever I see "barely had time to evacuate the building" I wonder if they might discuss the ceiling... I think I remember in an interview with Takeshi Honda, he pointed out where he'd been on the ice by saying he was under the part where there was a chunk of the ceiling missing. Which always made me wonder if that chunk fell during the earthquake, because that would really make it a true near miss... It doesn't take a tsunami for the whole experience to have felt like near death, tbh.
