pirateYuzu was one of his rare appearances in a (semi)comedic role, in a group number for The ICE 2011. Thanks to @kaeryth's media compilation for making it so easy to find all the links:tumblr_inline_ncmif5EcBB1rpglid:

direct link

ETA: LMAO @IceWings beat me to it:laughing:

 

 

I just barely beat you to it. I think I hit the Submit button a few seconds before you did. :agree2:

 

My thanks also to @kaeryth's media compilation. That's where I got the link! It's just a treasure trove of information.

late to the party to comment on the Lotte CM, and pretty much all the gushing has been done altready:67638860:  but I wanted to remark on this hydroblade, since I haven't seen gifs or discussion about this:tumblr_m9gcttgdYF1qzckow:

I'm mesmerized by how Yuzu exits that hydro: he gets a little push with his hand, stands up, switches from inside to outside and then just holds that edge(and quite deep too)... everything done so casually. His free leg just barely grazes the ice for a moment, his weight stays on his right foot the whole time

 

And Holy Hannah, it's just so beautiful... other skaters can probably do it, but not with his grace and lightness.

It's illegal. Straight to the squish :5918bda872cf0_0006(2):

Here lies the remains of one satellite, killed dead by the gorgeousness of Yuzu skating. :0002::5918bda8ee9b0_0001(1): Let all  know by these presents, that said satellite died very happily.

There is a new video about Yuzuru Hanyu's name (and given name), with alternate meanings (I don't know their accuracy), and an extract of the previous one (which was in Japanese). This one is in English but has a lot of text in Japanese too.

 

 

Everything about Yuzu is just so symbolic and poetic. I found the violin move in Origin kind of a reference to his name as well. Feathers also symbolize him. 

In one of the interviews he did last season (can't remember which one) he mentioned that the fire burning inside him is a blue flame - a reference to the name of his autobiography. Fire also happens to be the element of Sagittarius - Yuzu's star sign.

 

I remember on Weibo, there was some post asking people if there was any man's name that automatically suggests that the owner of the name must be a handsome man. Many Fanyus replied saying Yuzuru Hanyu - such a beautiful name. Some even said they didn't actually know anything about Yuzu and only searched him up because they got curious what kind of man would have such a beautiful name - and were of course happy to learn that the owner of this name certainly lives up to it!

Isn't the Chinese pronunciation of his name also supposed to have some kind of significance that implies beauty as well? I recall reading something about it once but not exactly what they said.

So today I was buying something  in Walmart and to my surprise I saw Sekkisei products in the skincare section!  I haven’t seen Sekkisei in Toronto before except on the Shoppers Drug Mart website or those independent Japanese cosmetic stores that are owned by Chinese (in those stores the price is always jacked up).

The Walmart also has some Korean skin care products such as innisfree and Missha.

 

The Walmart is in Markham (in Markville Mall) which has a large Asian / Chinese population though so maybe not THAT surprising, but I would have never expected to see Walmart selling Sekkisei products!

 

(As a price reference, for the clear bright mask, here it is selling for $39.97 ($231 HKD) where as in Hong Kong it sells for $190 HKD.  So Hong Kong is like -20%).  Obviously here they do not carry a large variety of products.  I stocked up when I was in Japan/Hong Kong in January so I should have enough for a while but I am not sure  when I can go there next....

I speak Cantonese Chinese, Mandarin Chinese and a little bit Japanese. The literal meaning of his name in Chinese is similar to Japanese, except that "Ha/羽” only means feathers but not wings, and "Yu/結” only means knots but not "tight". The pronuciation is beautiful in all three languages.

 

When I first discovered him, the first impression was "Wow, his name is so poetic! :loveeyes:"

 

There is also something special about those characters that I don't know how to explain. They are kind of on the "beautiful" side of characters. The ones that you would expect to find in poems.

Also, I'm the first one to complain when cameramen don't film whole body of the skater during stsq, but GOSH, THAT Origin stsq? If they film Yuzu's footwork like that, I'll take all the feet-focused footage:tumblr_inline_n18qr5lPWB1qid2nw::tumblr_inline_n18qr5lPWB1qid2nw::tumblr_inline_n18qr5lPWB1qid2nw:but gimme another comera angle with full body too plz

That stsq is really INSANE!

It makes me sad that comp footage often doesn't translate the awesomess of it (and why I love fancams too)

I also don't like some parts where they cut parts of Yuzu out of frame or where he barely fits the frame, but full frame of his skates I like. I really hope he'll skate cut version of Origin as an EX or show number one day (how he did with Seimei and H&L), so he will not have to save all the energy for quads.

And to think about the fact that his name is his real one, and there are so many people in show biz that invent their stage names and not alwways very inspired, though! The guy is something else, that`s for sure!

Hi everyone. Small update: thank God, our friend is recovering well and we might be able to visit her soon. Sadly, my grandfather is still in very bad shape, but we try our best to support him and care for him. I'd like to thank you once again with all my heart for your encouraging messages.

 

I took the new Lotte CM as an opportunity to reveal my new/old video montage of Yuzu's famous quotes. It's really uplifting in these difficult times. I hope you like it, too.
