Nessie? 

During years (from 2017?) he was speaking of a-certain-jump-nobody-had-ever-done-and many-deemed-to-be-impossible but it never appeared... until three attempts (out of anger for having been outrageously robbed with the short program scores + absence of his coach who had his passport stolen during transit in Frankfurt), the last nearly fully rotated (but he fell after each), during practice at Grand Prix Final 2019.

 

The two last attempts on this video :

I've said this and I'll say it again — when one says Yuzu has fans from Asia, it doesn't just mean the East Asian sphere, it literally means all across Asia, from Japan to Turkey, from Mongolia to Indonesia. (...and that's *just* from Asia! :9:)

It always irritates me when commentators only talk about his popularity in Japan and Japanese fans when Yuzu has fans from all over the world – Asia, Europe, North America, South America, Australia and I’m sure, even Africa. There might even be a penguin or two or a scientist in Antarctica who’s a Fanyu.

 

Any Asian fan carrying or wearing Winnie the Pooh stuff is automatically referred to as a Japanese fan even if they’re from some other Asian country or an ethnic Asian from some other continent.

I just logged on to the Online Exhibition store and bought some more Yuzu-related goods :rolleyes:! Ordered clear files and some towels, which comes in handy in humid Japan. The site is easy to navigate and it can be translated to English through Google translater. However, I had some problems when checking out: you have to put your name in katakana (required) before you could go on to the buy dialogue and I was unable to use the pull-down list for prefecture (even though I live in Japan). I could type my name in katakana, but I think it might be difficult for people without a Japanese keyboard. I wrote them an e-mail about fixing this situation, since gaijin fans who don't speak Japanese may want to order. Site also has stuff from the 2018 exhibition, but I couldn't find the Sendai pamphlet (maybe it's somewhere else).  Good luck you guys, but since its made to order, maybe it's not any rush---thank goodness, even though the goods will take longer to arrive. I was just sitting at my desk and shopping was more fun than reviewing a bunch of papers :slinkaway:

Yes, everyone thinks I'm a Japanese fan, even if I am not carrying a Pooh---until I open my mouth to speak :lol:

They have some really nice stuff (I love the towels) but they don't ship overseas. I guess we need a proxy to order :sigh:

if i read the original information correctly it is sent with orders of the exhibition book (until stocks of sendai booklet runs out, first come first served).  There'a another way to get the Sendai booklet - I think this is easier if you are based in Japan - the tourist centre will send it out to you if you apply and send in stamped self addressed envelope.  The instructions are here:

The site seems to accept international credit card - at least my order was confirmed, so you may want to try Tenso which is a forwarding service giving you local Japanese address and phone number.  It might work out cheaper than proxy.  Disclaimer:  I haven't used Tenso for a couple of years but it worked fine in the past. 

 

Happy shopping!

Hey, someone give the hint to the OC: I'm sure they'd be happy to host it!

:clapping-smiley:

ETA: Really, it should be the O(F)C -- the Olympic (Fanyu) Channel. 

:ohmygod:

Whoever's running that is definitely One Of Us. :cheer:

Yay! Finally some 'what are the judges smoking, anyway?' emojis! These will come in handy.
