General Yuzuru Chat


Recommended Posts

Ah guys is such a strange moment right now , I live in a small town (60000 people give or take)and the silence outside is so unreal ....we were joking among colleagues that it looks like one of those catastrophic movies a la the day after!


I’d be terribly sorry if they really cancel worlds so let’s hope they find a way and most of all let’s hope we can all stop this damn virus!

Boy knows how to use his name. :animated-smileys-hands-fingers-01:

I think in this case Yuzu had nothing to do with the naming, the only promotion he did was literally appear on camera reacting to this product.. although it's true that's more than enough to get hanyuconomy moving. 

 

Afaik Narahamachi is already using the yuzu fruit as its mascot/symbol, as I think it is a big yuzu producer. But of course it's possible that the name is simultaneously a nod to Yuzuru since he has a connection with the town now. There's that one cute video where he visits the sewing classroom and they show him a Yuzutaro plushie or something like that too.

When I looked at this artist's Yuzu fan art, a Japanese word 清冽な美しさ came in my mind. (美しさ= beauty)

 

清冽 must be more or less the same meaning in Chinese...(?) but it's an adjective that describes cold and clear water without impurity. It can be used to describe beauty that can stun people with its purity and clarity. Word "cold" can add negative nuance when describing people but cold beauty can be a thing that coldness itself is a part of the attraction. It gives unattainable/untouchable feeling because of the coldness but at the same time, you're stunned and cannot move / you're trapped because of the coldness. Off ice, Yuzu is so adorkable and cute. But on ice, he can be the untouchable. I love the blue flame that Yuzu described himself. Fire that burns with blue flame is hotter than the normal red one. 

 

I am secretly dreaming Yuzu after re***** that one day he will skate in D****y On Ice with Pooh and Elsa. He can do hunyu huny honey hunt with Pooh and sing with Elsa "The cold never bothered me anyway". 

 

This world is at very unsettling situations atm and I wish everyone's health and happiness the most. Please stay safe wherever you're on this planet :grouphug:

A fun thread of physics of 4Lo

 

 

"The more I study him the more marveled I am. I bet we dont even know half of the amazing things he does, or if we know them, how actually amazing they are. We always say he is in another level, but I really think it is even truer than what we realize."

Thank you so much for this thread! The paragraph above is so exactly what I think of him (and, in fact, of the two other living G.O.A.T. I know). I prefer Maths but, between this Tweeter account and another one subtitled "As a Physicist, I feel personnally attacked by Yuzuru Hanyu", I wonder if I should not reconsider my coldness towards Physics. ;-) (Plus the strong motivation of understanding better "the Physics in Yuzuru Hanyu's skating", of course.)

Oh same!. I actually think Yuzu could become a bigger star globally if he wasn't so busy for competitive skating. He has the it factor and has his own vision for skating. I kinda want him to become a bit more selfish and skate for himself rather than promoting ISU etc. Imagine if he team up with dis*ey (come on disney plus, you guys still need subscribers for your streaming service, make some exclusive mini series starring yuzu and pooh $$$$)

I think he still needs competition to progress further, as a motivation. I don't think he will be satisfied until he has reached his own limit and, his asthma, ankle (and what else?) apart, I feel we are not to the end of surprises. I would bet he will not only land the first 4A in competition (but not until he can do it perfectly and with entry and transition "à la Yuzuru"), but also the first quint. Unless Shoma Uno can before, or a junior of today. Maybe with a quad-quad in-between? Though with present ISU rules, I understand a quad-quad is not very interesting : lower GOE, consuming a "quad right". But Yuzuru Hanyu doesn't only work for immediate scoring rewards.

Shoma should work on pre-rotation of his weird quads before tying a quint. Do not let yourself fooled by the PR mashine behind him. Come on, people, we come a long way, we all know the drill by now!

I am not fooled as to his present technique, but I do (I must say I am very ignorant) believe he is able to address it, unlike Nathan Chen with his stiffness and axis instability, although these are less severe problems; because Shoma Uno seems to have great resources left, I think greater stamina potential than Yuzuru Hanyu himself, while Nathan Chen is exhausted.

Sorry to rain on the parade, but I saw on Japanese Tw about a recent interview with Ari Zakarian - the "brilliant" originator of the Awards - and apparently he told the interviewer that 10 out of 10 respondents were in favor of NC for MVP.   He seemed to be in no doubt that NC will win the Award.  So it's been cooked from the beginning. 

 

It was a translation of a translation so something may have gotten lost there - and now I can't locate the tweet anymore.  Has anyone seen this interview?  Assume the original was in Russian...

 

Way behind this thread...but what in the name of all that is good and holy is THIS??? 

 

Iirc, the definition of MVS was something like “engage fan base most and increase interest”? It’s a travesty if anyone other than Yuzu wins it...:disdain:

 

I was mildly curious about these awards at first, but now I’m gonna riot by...idk :( 

 

Anyways, here’s to hoping Yuzu will get more awards and thus more screen time! It’d be great if he does a cartwheel to mark his dramatic entrance like he did at that award show before.

Spoiler

At this point, machiavellian!me is inclined to favour a cancellation if that means it will grind the narrative of inflating ISU pet skaters and robbing skaters with proper technique and artistry to a halt... and if that means no cooked awards... :ohno:
