Yeah, right, no chance I'll buy an all-event ticket 10 months in advance with no refund guarantee in the middle of a worldwide pandemic. Who knows if we'll be even able to travel by then...

 

Edit: didn't they already announce that there would be awards again next year?

I really want the Masquerade clear file.  But I will have to go to the office on July 6th when the online order starts :64341262:

This time, the target item is their towels  :68556365:   Much more affordable than usual, but it means a tough fight to get it.

Gosh... You should participate in the "my most beautiful Yuzu" contest with this clear file...

Okay - time to ask this question - I LOVE the clear files I've been gifted by other satellites, and i'd like that Masquerade one, too - but, what is the purpose of a clear file?  Other than collecting them, is there a specific purpose for a clear file?  I keep travel papers in one (back when travel was something that people could do) but have been curious forever on what the actual usage of these are?  And why so popular in Japan? I know why the ones with Yuzu on them are popular, I'm just asking about clear files in general.

collector items for the most part, for myself.  

I do use a clearfile of Yuzu at work: for my timesheets and vacation paperwork(most of which was oriented around Yuzu)

I am mostly collecting them, using one or two when travelling, also for study papers sometimes.

Digital format! 

ehhh no plz don't tempt me:14066882::10636614:

(I mean, I already have the photobook in wishlist together with way too much stuff, but if they release a digital bersion too I won't have the excuse of the shipping costs...)

 

 

@Veveco I think a fan then shared the screenshot of the reply they got when they asked organizers if gala would be gala or.. like in Montreal. But otherwise, organizers keep mum on their website.

It costed nothing to add one line mentioning the format. Not all fans will think about mailing organizers, or know that other fans did..and not all fans know about the awards, if they haven't been on social media. Organizers "forgetting" this rather important detail(*) doesn't bode well

You'd think that, if awards were such a GREAT hit with fans, they'd want to use them to promote the gala... but alas:rolleyes:

 

Between this and the no-refund policy, it feels too similar to the Montreal scam, with the aggravating circumstances of being amidst a pandemic. Selling non-refundable tickets in August, when borders can get closed in matters of weeks or even days... This kind of behaviour says a lot about how much organizers(&ISU that let them organize their event like this) care about the audience :/

 

*(instead of a 2-hours long ice show --> skaters in formal attire waiting to get some award and only a few of performances in a corner of the rink that might as well be on the opposite side of where one buys a seat, depending on sheer luck)

 

 

re: clearfiles

I didn't know what they were LMAO it's another knowledge I got after becoming a Yuzu fan:tumblr_m9gcraReGL1qzckow:

I use one of those I got in Turin (to keep more Yuzu stuff I got there):coolio:

The rest are for contemplation only:tumblr_inline_mm2wbaeqQM1qz4rgp: and I'm scared I'll scratch them, so I just keep them stored away most of the time LOL

Not from the Stockholm organizers. (They seemed as clueless as any of us.) I want to say it was from Ari or ISU. The tweet below is all I could find so if anyone has a better memory than me... :13877886: My understanding is that it *will* happen again (sigh), the only question is where/when. (I'd love to be wrong though) If the next season is shortened though, it will be even less credible than this year.

Between this and the no-refund policy,

1) That's exactly the point... Fortunately, to this date the order page is much too hermetic to non-Japanese speakers, isn't it?

 

2) That's a convincing proof.

 

3) Do you mean, there would be no refund even if the buyers were legally forbidden to attend?

Ha. Ha. Ha. ISU conveniently not mentioning PC gold and calling Yuzu a "4-time GPF medalist" in his bio for the awards. Anyone surprised at this point?

Obviously the Japanese can find many uses for clear files (besides simply hoarding and gloating, which is what I would so).  These two - especially the Masquerade one - are... wow.:10636614:

tbh I can see their logic being like "FS was already popular in Japan before Yuzuru" because all fanyus are Japanese (duh), but FS had not been popular in the US for decades and still isn't popular but at least not zero so ... :tumblr_inline_mlrwnrXy0u1qz4rgp:

 

anyway, it sounds like it's already been decided 🙃

Wait, if we're all Japanese in disguise, does that mean we can order all that Yuzu merch then???

All of us Japanese fanyus certainly like conversing about him solely in English :think:
