Thank you everyone who answered my question and gave such clear explanations!! Again I’m a relatively new Fanyu so there are many things I still don’t know haha

 

Found someone who translated Yuzu’s handwritten message on page 127 of the Ice Jewels season photobook to Chinese and I’ll try my best to translate to english with my limited abilities:

 

 

”During the 2019-2020 season, everyone supported me with all their strength, thank you very much!

Thanks to everyone’s support, I could welcome the end of the season without great pain.
To “Yuzuru Hanyu”, what exactly is “figure skating”? I previously had days when I questioned myself like this.

But, after revisiting all different kinds of programmes, I realized once again, such programmes are created because it is exactly those moments that create such programmes (T/N: not sure what exactly he means here, and I’m not sure how to word it nicely in English, but I personally think it means every different moment back in time creates each programme)

As for the 2020-2021 season, exactly what form it will take, I don’t know too to be honest.

But no matter what happens, I will carry feelings and emotions unique to each moment, and skate to the end with all my ability!

Yuzuru Hanyu”

 

Not exactly the best translation since it’s Japanese —> Chinese —> English but I tried my best to stick as closely as possible to the Chinese translation and again there are some parts I don’t exactly know how to word nicely... hope the meaning doesn’t get butchered too much with my bad translation skills haha

If anyone has a better translation/can do a better job at translating it will be good too!

Yuzuru Hanyu”

 

 

 

On the 2nd paragraph, what he means is similar to the last paragraph.

To paraphrase : " The programs were created to convey the thoughts and emotions of that specific/unique time"

What he felt at the period of time when the programs were choreographed was what produced the programs, he may or may not feel the same way now.

 

Using the same concept, programs for upcoming new season will be made.

 

On side note, on a broader perspective he could be referring to the programs he has over the years. Which he did a snippet of each in the JSF video.

The Yuzu of RJ1 in 2012 is different from Yuzu performing RJ1 in 2014 at WC exhibition. The Yuzu of PW in 2014 Olympics is different from the Yuzu performing PW at Skate Canada 2019.

 

** My chinese is "half pail full" only.

It’s one-off, I am afraid, and it’s Yuzu’s.

Prince passed away in April 2016, so he had died before Jeff and Yuzu put the program together (LGC premiered in Sept 2016). So he never saw it. However, I do believe that recently, a spokesperson for Prince's estate did comment favorably on Yuzu's interpretation of the song. Unfortunately I can't find the quote back, though.

Oh, sorry, I thought he had already skated it the previous season. So it was a tribute from the beginning?

I LOVE Etude so much that I'm having it as my ringtone :knc_brian3:. There's no other ringtone I've kept for so long except the default one :war:

 

My ringtone is one of the few things that is not directly Yuzu-related, but... in a way it is :space:

Yes, and Yuzu only skated it in the 2016-17 season. His last competitive performance of it, at WTT 2017, was in fact on Prince's birthday.
