Wow, that's really pretty. Maybe one day it'll be translated into English. 

We could do it as a fan project...

Just asking for a friend, but my friend wonders if she´s the only one who´s very very curious about Yuzuru´s new programs for the 20-21 season. 

Ps: that friend might be me

You're asking far too early, you know that, right? It's a top secret anyway.

It has already been done by a fanyu, who proposes her translation if you send her a proof you have bought the book (I suppose it can be the Taiwanese version).

Sorry, I don't have the link, I think it was given here? Months ago.

What would be even nicer, is the "real, paper book" (or two...) in an English translation.

This is so sad, the COVID situation has taken out some of my favorite small businesses from around the world. They're really struggling, and many of them won't return. It is a little sad that PM magazine can't use their own images of skaters (I didn't know you needed permission from the subject to publish images you own, otherwise why would tabloids have unflattering images of anyone?), but I'm sure they don't want to get on the bad side of any skaters. 

Ichiroya.com for instance, from Osaka, who used to retail old kimonos and bolts etc, and to send them abroad, ceased their trade last week. :disappointed:

They are still managing the current orders, but don't take new ones.

 

Edit : Monchan posted this about English translation of Aoi Honoo (p.5627) :

I'm thinking about getting the Taiwanese version and I could try to translate it to English from there, but there's a high possibility some meanings would be lost between 2 translations

After all, tabloids are newspapers of a sort...:banginghead: I wish they get deprived of freedom of the press according to the percentage of fabrication and speculation in their articles...

 

As to Patinage Magazine, they were probably thinking the same as you do, and the interpretation of image rights and rights of publicity must vary from country to country, so I don't think they had bad intentions. However, I understand the response from Shoma and Dai's agent. From their point of view, PM is targeting their fans to raise money without their consent, and still continuing the crowdfunding after reaching their goal. When I searched on twitter by the magazine's name to know what was going on, most of the recent tweets were of their Japanese fans, so I guess they contributed a lot to the achievement, probably not just to get the reward but to show how much their favs are loved, and I think they deserve to know how these rewards were produced and how their favs think about them.

This COVID situation really sucks. I am also seeing my favorite shops and live music clubs I used to go closing... Hope PM will work this out to survive this.

 

ETA: By the way, when I find something to add to the what-happened-this-day list, how should I let you know? Should I just post in this thread or DM you or edit the list?

Yeah, you can either just post it here or add it to the list! Maybe make it a different color so I can find it easily? I have so much stuff for months like october and february because that's when most of the competitions happen, but so little stuff for dry months like May and July :sleep: Thanks for helping out :thankssign:

Here's our first automated tweet :)

I used sou japan via ebay or their site, where the item was cheaper at the moment. Hope they're ok, though Japan Post has very limited shipping now,  that's why I used FedEx for cdjapan for the first time.

Taiwanese version of Aoi Honoo. I guess this is a collectors edition? Looks cool!

Crikey, that is a gorgeous box edition!!!

 

Occurs to me that if he does a third volume, it will also be a blue costume: Chopin or Otonal?

I wonder how does one go about making a translation and publishing it? These books would have their market...

The least you would need is Yuzu’s permission and a top-notch professional translator completely familiar with both Japanese and English.

 

You would also need a publisher.

 

Someone who would know the process is Courtney Milan a.k.a. Heidi Bond who is also a HUGE FANYU. I believe that she was at the 2019 ACI.

 

As you may recall, I posted about her some time back. She is a best-selling historical and contemporary romance novelist and former SCOTUS law clerk and law professor. She blew the whistle on sexual harassment in the US federal court system which resulted in the early retirement of a federal court judge.

Omgosh I was totally thinking about them! COVID really sucked for them because Japan stopped sending packages overseas, especially to the US, for a long long time...and that was the nail in the coffin. I really loved Ichiroya -- they were super knowledgeable experts in vintage/antique Japanese textiles, clothing, and art... and very honest, hardworking, respectful people. I think other places have cheaper items but Ichiroya's is always the most well-described. It's definitely a huge loss :sad-smiley-046:

Hey, satellites! Look at this awesome thing that just showed up in my recommends on YouTube:

 

Don't know how I feel about Yuzu as a boxer, but I'm sure if he was one, he'd be the guy who kept on punching no matter what, until the other guy loses...:hachimaki:
