I saw Yuzu lip syncing to Back Number's Happy Ending and got curious about the song because it sounded really good to me.

It turned out to be such a sad romantic song when I Googled the meaning of the lyrics! The part Yuzu mouthed was:

 

"I was down and looked pale
The one that I love suddenly disappeared
Please remember me forever
But, it's all just a lie, I hope you were fine always."

 

This is now my favorite song... Although thinking about a heartbroken Yuzu makes me sad.

 Naomi understands and speaks Japanese, just not fluently for public interviews. She speaks Japanese in an adorable child like manner and her expressions and gestures are very Japanese - shy and floppy at times. In Japan they have shown her chatting with her grandfather who has now fully accepted her and embraces her with love and kindness.  So proud to have her represent Japan - she is helping our society evolve and progress and become more open to different ways of being Japanese. I am glad she was the one to light the torch. Also I am relieved Yuzu avoided being associated with this Olympic event, as the organizers had utterly neglected the Tohoku recovery theme, and he should not be manipulated and used by them to cover up for their sins. Naomi brings a fresh perspective and she has her own unique message that won’t be tainted by this pandemic Olympic. 

 

Maybe I am not following about Naomi that much and missed this information. But agree with you that Yuzu was not evolved in this, good for him.

Omg yay!! We finally got queen Swanyu to two million!! Absolutely deserved, I love Swanyu so much. :'D

 

Oh yes!! Finally!! I refused to believe that there is not a single Swanyu performance on YT hitting 2M views. It was THE program that brought me to this sport, that turned me into a fanyu at first sight, that helped me to overcome so much grief and a program that made me fall in love with the roots and ancient history of figure skating. The best thing that ever happened to me. Ever.

 

Yes, it really is time to celebrate this special moment that was long overdue! :cheer:

LMEY has 1,98 million views already! It's the third most popular video on the Sportschau channel. :party2:

 

Let's get it to 2 million views!!! :cheer:

 

PS: Congrats, Olympic Swanyu! :201111231756430f6:

 

This is so awesome that in the presence of the UEFA EURO and Olympics 2020 Yuzu's video managed to stay in the top 5 of the channel. Fantastic achievement and big thanks to all who contributed to this feat :thanks:

 

PS: Here in Germany the video is in 5th place at the moment (closely behind the summary of the GER-POR match with 2.08 mio. views), but a big thing nonetheless.

Thank you for sharing the video! Wow... I didn't know Happy End was such a sad song. However, the English lyrics you quoted are so different from the original. I am not sure if it is possible to convey the meaning of the lyrics with my English skills, but here is my translation:

Spoiler

"Goodbye" was stuck deep in my throat
So I said, "Thank you," as if to cough
I look into my pockets for what to say next,
But I only find myself still in love with you

 

I am fine, I am OK,
I have become able to be kind, I thought
Then I hoped so, then it became a lie
(T/n: Something, like a leaf) Withering while still being green
It was like me fading while still in love with you
I picked it up and crushed it in my hand
Together with my feeling deep inside
It's OK It's OK
Hold me tight now
And just say you don't need anything else if I am with you and kiss me
Nah, I'm joking I'm sorry

 

I know this isn't the memory I should recall now
But you said that you would not leave me alone
Actually, I was happy when you said that

 

You took courage
And called me for the first time
What is different between me that night and now
No matter how apart we have been
No matter how long we could not see each other
My feeling for you hasn't change
And that's why I am here, but
Remember me
Withering while still being green
Fading while still in love with you
Nah, it's a lie Take care

 

You look a bit relieved
Seeing me not crying
You are carefree as always, and I love that too

 

When I realized, you were already beside me
And wiped my tears without a permission
Saying, "You are wonderful as you are"
Making everything I saw and heard colorful
Withering while still being green
It was like me fading while still in love with you
I picked it up and crushed it in my hand
Together with my feeling deep inside

 

It's OK It's OK
Hold me tight now
And just say you don't need anything else if I am with you and don't let go
Nah, it's a lie Goodbye

Yuzu in this video is lip-syncing probably the saddest part of the lyrics, so at first, I was like, "Oh no Yuzu, what are you air-singing so hard! Nooooo" It was a kind of relief to see Yuzu then started running as the protagonist of the song tried to let go of her love and go.

I think that the word forehead in Japanese is one of the words that can take an お in front of them without really changing the meaning just like the word tea which is 茶 but can also be お茶. 

(Please correct me if I'm wrong).

 

I stand corrected. You are right. You can drop the “O” and just say “DEKO” for forehead. (I asked my wife who is Japanese. Me, I’m a third-generation Japanese-Canadian who just learned something new.)

He did say he likes a good cry to vent his emotions so perhaps that's why he's listening to sad song and getting into the character hard to let out his stress.

Thank you so much for the translation! The song is even more beautiful than I thought! I have been listening it a lot on Spotify.

We know the original of what he said was deleted but NC has issued an apology.  Appropriate and likely suggested to him - but,,,

 

We have quite a discussion about this hoolabaloo in the Team USA thread so feel free to come over. Anyway, this is somewhat off topic so I will say it just once here: I shared the same sentiments with some others. He issued this suddenly very eloquent, thoughtful apology, what, 6 days after the interview was out, including 4 days of it floating on youtube (likely to stay there if nobody said anything) and 2 days after (and only after) the backlash on social media. Textbook damage control, if you ask me. 

 

Oh well, he now officially belongs to the toxic masculinity club in my book. And I wish this club a  very floppy year ahead, whatever they do.

It needs only few years of life experience to know how Nathan is merely a PR product and his words in this apology are all written by his own agency. He is just reciting what is told to him. As emotionless and insincere as his skating… he probably thinks showing some emotions might hurt his fragile masculinity 

To me, he is just an icon of overscored-privileged-homophobic skating. We all saw his true self and opinions in that interview when he wasn't given a script. 

Link to post

I always believe that skating reflects skaters' personalities somehow. Yuzu's skating is honest and sincere down to the tiniest details. When he skates, he gives everything. There's no hiding 'cos it's all out there on the ice. You fake something and most people can tell something is not quite genuine about. So what you put into skating has to come from the heart. You skate like you mean it. If your heart is not in, it will show in your performance. I don't get Nathan's skating because I don't really feel what he's expressing it (if he's trying to express, that is). I enjoy Donovan's skating even though his skill level is not quite there yet because he has something that I like - full of personality in his skating. 

 

NC's interview episode is hardly a surprise to me tbh but it is sad to know that the current world fs champion doesn't love fs the way it supposed to be - beautiful. Femininity and masculinity can co-exist in beautiful figure skating in both men and women. Yuzu is what the figure skating beauty is in human form:tumblr_inline_n18qr5lPWB1qid2nw:
