Although I will cry when Yuzu r*****s from competition, I look forward to seeing him revisit all his iconic competitive programs as exhibition pieces.

 

 

 

 

This will truly be a bitter yet such a beautiful moment knowing that the beauty of all his programs will continue to bloom even after he stops competing. I can feel my eyes burning already. :64341262:

 

I really would follow Yuzu to the end of the world.

Talking about historic markers...

 

I thought about starting a little history series on Twitter under the hashtag #FigureLegends.

There are some really funny and surprising parallels between Yuzu and Dick Button, Axel Paulsen, Gillis Grafström and other skaters of the "ancient times".

I would create profiles for all these skaters, including the most spectacular stats, trivia and, if meaningful, a head-to-head comparison with Yuzu.

 

Do you think, that series has potential? If there is general interest, I will try to upload one or two profiles per week.

Please do so!!! That sounds so fun.

Before you do this, or in parallel with this, could you do a side-by-side or overlay comparisons of the historic markers from Notte Stellata?  For example, Robin Cousin's broken-leg camel spin (don't know the exact name) Yuzu performs at the end of Notte Stellata woul be lovely, and would provide a graphic illustration of your historic marker description.   I recall one of the TV broadcasters (Japanese? Canadian? can' recall) doing an overlay of Orser's (?) single axel jump with Yuzu's.   I'm afraid I cannot remember the details.  It would be a fantastic accompaniment to your historic marker Tweet!

I would love to do that, but sadly my current video editor is not capable of doing any overlays or SBS frames :68811363:

Another issue is that it's very hard to find video footage for all historic markers. I definitely need help with collecting the material. However, as soon as I have a proper editor again, I will try to do a video.

Thank you very much for the idea! I keep that in mind :notamused:

That's great, thank you!  I will also try to look for the historic footages.  Must be lurking somewhere in the vast video archives of Big Data universe.

Yuzuru Hanyu whomst? :huh:

 

All jokes aside, it's just so heartwarming to know that Sendai is always super protective of Yuzu :10742289:

I love it. It just screams snarky Musubimaru*  energy.

 

 

*Musubimaru is the samurai onegiri mascot of Visit Miyagi** twitter.

 

**Sendai is in Miyagi***.

 

***Am I being ponderously pedantic just for fun? Yes****.

 

****My sense of humour may not tickle everyone's funnybone. Oh well.

LOL what? when did this happen? :roll:

Quite a lot of times. You think why they would rather interview suspicious "professor" from Waseda than Sendai people? :176:

I love Musibinaru.  The other name for our delicious rice ball is "O-Musubi", which means something that is tied (like string), versus "O-Nigiri", which means something that is tightly held/ squeezed.   So we could also call Musubimaru, the "O-Musubi" mascot of Miyagi.   Which is redundant, I know, but this is all in the spirit of Musibimaru Humour.   

 

On a more artsy mode, found this beautiful rendition of Yuzu with reference to Uesugi Kenshin as the Dragon of Echigo.  In the background, the artist has written the words of Lord Kenshin in gold letters.  Translation below by me. 

 

 

運は天にあり、鎧は胸にあり、手柄は足にあり、
何時も敵を我が掌中に入れて合戦すべし。
死なんと戦えば生き、
生きんと戦えば必ず死するものなり。
運は一定にあらず、時の次第と思うは間違いなり。
武士なれば、わが進むべき道はこれほかなしと、
自らに運を定めるべし。
上杉謙信

 

Fortune is in heaven, armor on the chest, and victory with your feet,
Always keep your enemies in the palm of your hand as you fight.
When you fight without thought of death, you will live.
When you fight to stay alive, you will surely die.
Fortune is not constant, and it would be a mistake to think it depends on time.
As a warrior, there is no other pathway but this: 
Seize the fortune with your own hands. 

- Uesugi Kenshin 

 

The opening movement of "Ten to Chi to" evokes the armour (yoroi) on the chest - being held in one hand - as he kicks forward with his feet toward the battle.

This tweet was recommended to me by twitter algorithm. Does anyone know what is happening? 

 

 

 

I would suggest that we leave it alone and not take it up on this Forum as this is ugly.  

Spoiler

This is part of series of allegations of power/sexual harrassment by Hashimoto Seiko, former Minister of Olympics and now head of JOC replacing Mori.   The allegation is that she has a habit of pushing people to hug each other against their will, and not only when drunk.  In this post-Sochi Olympic celebration where Yuzu is present, she pushed Mao Asada to hug PM Abe, and both parties were quite reluctant but she kept insisting with so much persistence that in the end, they did hug.  Poor Mao - I am sure she would not want this embarassing moment to be dug up again!   Yuzu also gets a quick hug from Abe in the process, but he is not the main focus of this video expose.
