General Yuzuru Chat


Recommended Posts

I'm continuing on my quest of reading the GS fan fests (against better judgement lol), and there's so many fun quotes and predictions that back then seemed pure fantasy, but now 8 years later have already ran past us or are just knocking on the door :winky:

Props to him for continuing to push the technical envelope though - hasn't he mentioned wanting to land all the quads? 4A is a little :smiley_hairpull: but if you think about it, Yuzuru probably has the best shot out of anyone in getting it done (assuming such a jump is indeed possible).

 

I hope nessie wants to make an appearance soon :'>

Looks like bad LP here lit up the fire in him. Did he say something like "no more 4CC silver in the future"?

 

Oh, if we only knew! :1: Super slam legend incoming.......................................... eventually lol

I thought i would share the goods, so here are some stuff i really enjoyed while looking through the first 30 or so pages that i hadn't seen before v-v 

 

Article written highlighting his life and career up until that point: http://www.absoluteskating.com/index.php?cat=articles&id=2012hanyu

 

This quote from Blue Flame about his first win at a competition was so cute, i can totally see little toothless Yuzu smiling as he skates! :tumblr_inline_mzx8txTRzl1r8msi5: 
 

Quote

 

"It was the Daiei Cup held at an ice rink in Shin-Matsudo City, Chiba Prefecture, and I was 6 years old then. When winning the competition, I had no front teeth. But I tried hard to smile during my program because my coach told me 'Smile!' It is totally funny when I watch the video of my performance now! In the video, I was trying hard to skate with a smile, and at the end of the program, I was counting - one, two, three, while holding the finishing pose. That's because my coach told me 'Make sure to keep posing for three seconds'... When I stood on the podium at the Daiei Cup, I lifted my trophy up high, showing it to the audience. Despite wearing a childish sweat suit, I was totally pretending to be just like Plushenko. And I was smiling with no teeth!"

 

 

 

 

There were some other quotes from Blue flame in there which gave such insights into him as a person. I think i might finally have to buy this book and ask the lovely person that provides english translations with proof of purchase for a copy v-v I have this overwhelming feeling of admiration for Yuzu as a person just reading a couple of simple excerpts, it's almost as if i suddenly feel compelled to make sure i read it all. 

 

And it seems you're right about the asthma and finlandia trophy @caterpillar, the article i linked above had this to say about it: 

 

Quote

"Yuzuru’s first competition this season was the Finlandia Trophy. He fell on the quad in the short program, but skated a great free, impressively winning the competition. But after finishing the free skate he suddenly lay on the ice, exhausted. It was later reported that he still experienced some pain in the ankle he’d injured in March, and his asthma has exacerbated with the season change. Because of this, he was totally out of shape and had lost a lot of weight. When competing at Finlandia, he was even too skinny to wear his new costume, which was now too big for him."

 

Here's a cute photo of Yuzu rom the article (trashbag pants and all! it feels really full circle now haha) :>

I also found this lovely fan art (no credit was given by the GS user that posted as they didn't know who made it, sadly)!

This is one of my recent favorite Japanese songs,  by back number.  So glad to see it getting more attention, thanks to Yuzu who mentioned it as his favorite song on WTT announcement.   Apparently, the song is trending now in Japan.  The video is so moving - I wanted to shout to the girl in the video - don't go into the water - don't die, don't give up!   

 

Suicide rates have been going up in Japan, as in so many countries...  Please reach out to your loved ones!

 

 

 

 

This song really touched me as i was listening to it (+ reading the lyrics) this morning. I've been having a tough time recently and it made me feel a bit more hopeful. I'm really happy that Yuzu recommended it v-v 

 

Still, i couldn't find it on spotify :// I would love to listen to it regularly, but it seems it's not meant to be.

I appreciate that Yuzu mentioned this song 水平線. I found it quite moving ;;

 

On youtube in the recent comments I noticed a lot of people mentioning they found the song because of Yuzu's interview. It's nice that everyone can connect this way.

It's not on Spotify probably because the song wasn't produced for commercial purposes - it was created as an act of pure love for the young athletes and I think there is only this video that they made publicly available.  This fits so well with Yuzu's values and world view...   Some of the fans are now asking the band to produce the song as an album.

Hi Japanese speakers/translators 💕

How would you translate the phrase "You are our light" (like as a response to Yuzu's message, "I hope I can be someone's light.")

I am thinking of putting it in a banner if that's appropriate :tumblr_inline_n2pjd0dgUw1qdlkyg: (let me know if you think it's not haha)

Thanks in advance!

 

What about "Anata wa watashitachi no kibo no hikaridesu." This translates to "You are our beacon of hope."

 

I do not know how to write this in Japanese characters, but Google translate or one of the Japanese satellites should be able to help.

The Daiei Cup quote. :smiley-laughing021: Sounds so adorable for some reason. Baby Yuzu put everything into that smile didn't he. :happy0007:

As expected of #Hanyuconomy, the first batch of watches sold out on WeChat in 6 mins. Looks like they'll have another release tomorrow, April 9th. 

 

His signature is so pretty~ I'd totally frame that like art :201111231756430f6:

The bands intentions are noble, but it frustrates me nonetheless! Haha. I guess i might make it into an mp3 file an upload it manually for personal use v-v 

 

But it is indeed very Yuzu like.

hopefully after this mention they will consider releasing it on Spotify too! 🙏

So more people around the world can commiserate about this difficult situation, “all in this together” style

Excuse me the privilege, when I was in mid school all my teacher did was yell at us so could be quiet :sipping:

Nah, it depends for us sometimes:xD: our teachers used to hit our palms with canes that time too.

An interview with Margarita Bugaeva. 

https://matchtv.ru/figure-skating/matchtvnews_NI1335654_Smotru_vystuplenija_Trusovoj_i_ponimaju_chto_vse_dolzhno_byt_vovrema_Match_TV_obshhajetsa_s_prepodavatelem_akterskogo_masterstva_dla_figuristov

 

She has been working with figure skaters on acting, presentation and projection, so these are the focus of the interview. It is quite long but very interesting.

 

Anyway, she admires Yuzu and dreams of working with him :) . Here is one of her answers (translated via Google Translate). 

 

- Do you have a dream student?

- Yes, Yuzuru Hanyu. It seems to me that he uses the sources of some kind of internal reserves: meditation, closed trainings of Buddhists from Tibet ( laughs ). Everything makes it so unique. I just want to talk to Yuzuru and understand how he succeeds, what he talks about with the coaches during the production of programs. I am interested in personal growth.

Hi!  Not to dispute or challenge you, but I do recall enjoying "purin" for dessert in my childhood days in the mid 1960's in Tokyo.  Ginza Fujiya (with Peko-chan at the entrance) had strawberry shortcake and purin, which were among the favorites of children back in those days (along with Omu-rice, Sadaharu Oh for baseball and Taiho for Sumo wrestling - oh dear, I am dating myself!)  

 

Purin is the soft version of flan/ creme caramel and never referred to the that stolid English pudding, which I hated - ugh (deep apologies to the British satellites for this cultural savagery).   Anyway, we can't pronounce "pudding" so "purin" it is.   We seem to prefer our sweets (and figure skaters) to be soft and wiggly.  

 

When I think about Fujiya Peko-chan, it's always Milky and Peko-chan Sundae for me :D I didn't really associate purin with Peko-chan. I think about Morozoff more than anything with the word 'purin'.  They're known for custard pudding with glass cups which is quite strong so people keep them after eating it and use it as everyday drinking glasses. Also, we used to make purin at home using 'purin mix'. Ahh good old days... 

Maybe we've always called custard pudding or caramel pudding just 'purin'.

Beautiful and thoughtful Greek commentary on Hana wa Saku Worlds 2021 :tumblr_inline_n18qr5lPWB1qid2nw:

This person subbed quite a few Yuzu's Greek commentated comp videos. The commentator has always been very respectful and showered him with praises.
