Currently I am using Opera and it does not have that option in the settings. For many years I've been using Firefox bc I tend to have many tabs open (and I mean REALLY many tabs, with all kind of info which I intend to copy sometime later but often don't get round to it), but that didn't get along with the really many tabs of YouTube Yuzu videos I wanted to keep open for repeated watching. That's why I switched to Opera.

Does Google Chrome 'allow' a big amount of open tabs (YT videos too) without crashing? 

 

 

 

Sorry to mention the topic about browser again.

Look Beatrice (see screenshot in spoiler) the pages of Opera can also be translated completely. I have added the extension "Google translator".

 

 

Spoiler

You click on the right mouse button, then comes the next button: "this page translate in...(language selection).

By the way I open the news.yahoo Japan pages in Opera with VPN. Otherwise I use the Google Chrome Browser. :agree:I hope I could help you a little bit.

That's a pity. OK, then the last resort.

 

I copied all the text hereunder.

「呼吸一つでさえも、芸術」多くの人を救う、羽生結弦の演技の魅力とは?

 

<「生の演技を一度見たら最後、以前の自分には戻れない」。本来の曲の世界観以上のものを作り出してしまう、世界最高峰の氷上の表現者・羽生結弦の魅力について、今注目の若手論客ヒオカ氏が語る>

 

静まり返った空間に、弧線や円、螺旋が描かれる。その線はよどみなく、力強く、繊細だ。無機質な世界が、どんどん染め上げられていく。彼のステップを踏む足が着地するその場所から、彼が手を差し出すその先から、見たことのない世界が広がっていく。

彼に合わせて世界が鼓動する。彼は人であるけれど人を超えた存在。それが、羽生結弦である。

 

音楽に合わせて踊ることに長けた人は、世の中にきっと多くいる。しかし、羽生結弦という人は、音楽に合わせるというより、もはや彼自身が、音楽そのものなのではないかと思うほど、緻密に、完璧に音楽を表現する。

 

指先までのすべての神経を使って、彼は表現する。呼吸一つでさえも、芸術である。次々と繰り出される彼の表現は、いつもこの世の常識を鮮やかに塗り替えていく。彼の演技を見るたび、「あぁ、この世界に、こんなにも素晴らしいものがあったんだ」と思うのだ。

 

彼は「憑依型」だと思う。曲ごとに、まるで人格まで変わったのではないかと思うほど、別人になるのだ。纏うオーラやたたずまいまでもががらりと変わる。

 

含みのある笑みも、カッと目を見開き前を見据えたときの迫力も、アンニュイで憂いをおびた儚い表情も、子どものような透き通った純心さも、流し目で振り向いた時のはっとするような色香やぞっとするほどの艶やかで凄みのある佇まいも、全てが心をつかんで離さず、虜になってしまう。リンクに立てば圧倒的な王者の風格を漂わせているのに、リンクの外ではあどけなく、けらけらとよく笑い、他の選手とよくじゃれあう。そして腰が低く徹底的に礼儀正しい。

 

そんな姿を見るたび、あぁ、羽生結弦も人間なのだ、と思う。そんな人間味あふれる姿も、また多くの人も心をつかんでやまないのだと思う。

 

曲がかかれば、その曲の世界観に完全に入り込む。そしてその本来の曲の世界観以上のものを、彼は作り出してしまう。

 

「春よ来い」というプログラムがある。何度か披露されているが、印象的だったのは北京五輪でのエキシビジョンだった。優勝すれば94年ぶりの3連覇という、前代未聞の重圧を背負いながら、怪我の痛みとたたかった。

 

彼が納得の行く演技ができるのが一番だ。

 

そう多くのファンは思ったことだろう。でも、実際はあらゆる困難が襲った。リンクの穴にハマるハプニングもあった。そして4位という結果だった。

 

もしかしたら最後の五輪かもしれない。誰よりも完璧を追求する彼は、今回の五輪をどう捉えているのだろう。それはだれにも分からない。しかし、怪我の痛みもあるだろうし、きっと様々な考えが溢れ出し駆け巡っていることだろう。そんな中、滑ってくれるだけで十分、いやそれ以上だ。そう思っていた。そわそわした気持ちで、エキシビジョンの演技をテレビの前で待っていた。

 

しかし、彼がポジションについて音楽がかかった瞬間、息を飲んだ。そこにいたのは間違いなく、いつもの「羽生結弦」だった。空気を操り、空間に命を吹き込む。そんな羽生結弦という人間だ。

 

繊細なピアノの音にあわせ、見上げた顔は穏やかだった。まるでつぼみが開き、薄く透き通った花が揺れるように、たおやかに舞う。

春って羽生くんが連れてきてたんだ。

 

そんなことを思った。冬の寂寥感に、春の始まりの淡い彩りと瑞々しい香りが染み込んでいくように。春の何とも言えない切なさや色んなものが始まるソワソワしたあの感じ。あたたかい季節が始まる胸の高鳴り。大地や草花の芽吹きや華やぎ。

 

そんな、「冬と春の間」の複雑な空気感を、完璧に表現してる。絶妙、いや超絶な緩急のつけかたに、目を奪われる。どこまでも優しく優しく、しなやかに。腕や手先を繊細に使い、風のように、そして風で揺れる一輪の花のように、軽やかに舞う。

 

ここぞという時、ためたあと音楽はしっかりと、つよく、地を踏みしめ、根を張るように、突き上げるように鳴り響く。それに合わせ、彼もまるで何かから解放されたように、躍動する。音楽と共に、澄み渡った空気、穏やかな風がなだれこんでくる。

 

そして私の心も揺さぶられる。胸の奥が熱くなり、なにかがとめどなく溢れ出す。気が付けば目には大粒の涙がたまっていた。(この原稿を書きながらも、演技を見返して何度も泣いている)

 

私はこんなに美しい音楽を知らない。私はこんなにも繊細で複雑な表現を知らない。

 

どこかノスタルジックで、感傷的で切ない感情が胸をかすめる。胸がきゅーっとなって苦しい。しかし、その切なさのあとに、霧が晴れたように、心が澄み渡り、やわらかい光が差し込んでくる。心にしみ込んでくる、心をふっと優しく包んでくれる、そんな何かに触れた気がした。

 

彼の演技を見るたび、こんな世の中でも、こんなに素晴らしいものがあるのなら、生きていてよかった、とさえ思えてくる。

 

彼の演技は多くの人を救う

間違いなく、彼の演技は多くの人を救っている。

 

プロに転向した今、彼はますます自由に表現を追求し、多くの人を魅了しているように見える。一般的にアマチュア時代が現役と言われ、その期間がピークと言われる。

 

でも、そんな常識は、彼はぶち壊す。いや、軽やかにすり抜けて、彼は彼の世界の常識で生きている、というほうがしっくりくる。彼はどんな枠にも既存の概念にも当てはまらない存在。羽生結弦は、羽生結弦であり、それ以外のなにものでもないのだから。

 

後日談

この原稿を書いている時、羽生くんのプロ転向後初のアイスショー「プロローグ」の先行抽選結果が来た。

 

結果は、"もちろん"、全落ち‼

 

だってプロ転向後初のアイスショーですよ? 一人で最初から最後まで演技するんですよ?そりゃあみんなみたいよね‼‼‼‼ 当選する望みは限りなく薄いであろう。そんなことはわかっていたし、必死に心の準備もした。でも、仕事中に落選メールがきて、しばらく放心状態。仕事が手につかず、上司にもドン引かれるくらいの気の落ちようだった。

 

実は私、生で羽生くんを見たことがない。映像でもこんなに泣いて、圧倒されるのだから、生で見たら、本当に倒れてしまうかもしれない。

いや、もういっそう、倒れたい。

 

生で羽生君の演技を見たら、自分がどうなってしまうのか、楽しみでもある。ファンの方の話を聞くと、一度見たら最後、それまでの自分には戻れないのだという。

 

いい、戻れなくていい。変わり果ててしまいたい。いつか! いつか演技を生で見たい。この目に焼き付けたい。

 

あまりに生で演技を見たいと思い続けていたら、念じたかいがあってか先日夢に羽生君が出てきた。夢の中で羽生くんは発光していた。そこで完全に心奪われてしまった。

 

夢にまで見る羽生くん。遠くない未来に、その演技を生で焼き付けられますように。そう願いながら、今日も先日開設された羽生君の公式YouTubeチャンネルをみている。

I revised the translation by DeepL, although it is still rough as the writer is so eloquent and my vocabulary could not follow :13877886:

I expect your imagination.

“Even a single breath is an art.”  What is the attractiveness of Yuzuru Hanyu's performance that saves many people?

 

<”Once you see a live performance, you can never go back to your old self”  Hioka, a notable young commentator, talks about the attractiveness or charm of Yuzuru Hanyu, the world's greatest expressive artist on the ice, who creates more than the original worldview of music.>

 

Arcs, circles, and spirals are drawn in a quiet space. The lines are smooth, powerful, and delicate. The inorganic world is becoming more and more dyed. From the place where his stepping foot lands, from where he holds out his hand, a world never seen before spreads out.

 

The world beats in time with him. He is a person, but he is more than a person. That is Yuzuru Hanyu.

 

There are many people in the world who are skilled at dancing to music. Yuzuru Hanyu, however, expresses music so precisely and perfectly that it is almost as if he himself is the music itself.

 

He expresses himself with every nerve, down to the tips of his fingers. Even his breathing is an art form. His expressions, one after another, always vividly rewrite the common sense of the world. Whenever I see him perform, I think to myself, "Oh, what a wonderful thing there is in this world!”

 

I think he is a "spirit possession type (憑依型 Hyoi-gata in Japanese).” With each music, he becomes a different person, so much so that it seems as if his personality has even changed. Even his aura and demeanor change drastically.

 

Whether it is his implied smile, intensity when he looks forward with wide-open eyes, ennui and melancholic fragility of his expression, childlike pure innocence, breathtaking (sexy) charms or horrifyingly glamorous appearance when he turns around with a sidelong meaningful glance, everything grabs your heart and keeps you captivated. When standing on the rink, he exudes the air of a dominant champion, but off the rink, he is just innocent, laughing and joking with other skaters. He is also very modest and thoroughly polite.

 

Whenever I see Yuzuru Hanyu like that, I feel that he is also a human being. It is this humanistic side of his that also grabs the hearts of many people.

 

When music is played, he is completely absorbed in the world of the music. And he creates something more than the original worldview of the music. There is a program called "Haru yo Koi." It has been performed several times, but the most impressive performance was the one we saw at the gala of the Beijing Olympics. If he wins, he will be the first three-time Olympic gold medalist in 94 years, an unprecedented burden on his shoulders as he battled with the pain of injury.

 

It would be best if he could give a convincing performance.

 

Many fans must have thought so. But in reality, all kinds of difficulties hit him. There was even an incident where he fell into a hole in the rink. And he finished in 4th place.

 

It may be his last Olympics. How does he, who pursues perfection more than anyone else, view the Olympics? No one knows. But he must be in a lot of pain from his injury, and a lot of thoughts may be running through his mind. In such a situation, it is enough, or even more than enough, that he is able to skate. That's what I thought. Restlessly, I waited in front of the TV for the gala performance.

 

But the moment he took his position and the music started, I gulped. There was no doubt the usual “Yuzuru Hanyu.” He manipulates the air and breathes life into the space. It was such “Yuzuru Hanyu.”

 

His face was calm as he looked up to the delicate sound of the piano. It was as if a bud had opened and was dancing gently, like a thin, transparent flower swaying.

 

Spring was brought to us by Hanyu.

 

I thought to myself. It was just like the loneliness of winter is filled with the light colors and fresh fragrance of the beginning of spring. The indescribable feeling felt for spring, something put you in a flutter or even pain, and that soar feeling of various things beginning. The heart throbs as the warm season begins. The budding and blooming of the earth and flowers. The complex atmosphere between winter and spring is perfectly expressed. The exquisite, or rather superb performance balanced with slow and fast movements was stunning. The way he is so gentle, tender, and supple. He uses his arms and fingers delicately and dances lightly like the wind and like a flower swaying in the wind.

 

When the moment is right, the music rings out firmly and strongly, as if stepping fastly on the ground, rooting, and pushing up, and to the music, he, too, moves lively as if he has been freed from something. Along with the music, the clear air and gentle winds drifted in. And my heart was shaken, fraught with emotion deep inside my heart, and something was flowing out unceasingly. Before I knew it, my eyes were filled with tears. (Even as I write this, I am crying over and over again as I rewatch the performance.)

 

I have never known such beautiful music. I have never known such delicate and complex expression.

 

Somehow nostalgic, sentimental, and sad feelings pass through my mind. My heart is aching and painful. But after such sadness and pain, as if a fog has lifted, my heart clears and a soft light shines through. I felt like I was touched by something that permeated my heart and wrapped my mind softly and tenderly.

 

Every time I see his performance, I even feel glad to be alive if such a wonderful thing exists in this world.

 

His performance saves a lot of people

 

Without a doubt, his performance has saved many people.

 

Now that he has turned professional, he seems to be pursuing his expression more and more freely and attracting many people. Generally, the amateur days are said to be active period, and that period is said to be the peak.

 

But he smashes such common sense. No, it is more apt to say that he slips lightly through, and lives by the norms of his own world. He is the one that does not fit into any frame or existing concept. Yuzuru Hanyu is Yuzuru Hanyu, and nothing else.

 

Later Story

 

As I was writing this article, I received the result of the lottery for Hanyu's first ice show as a professional, "Prologue".

 

The result was, "of course," that I failed the lottery. 

 

You know, it's his first ice show after turning pro, right? He is going to perform from the beginning to the end by himself, right? I knew that everyone would want to see it‼‼‼‼ There was no way that I could win. I knew that, and I prepared myself desperately. But when I received the e-mail telling me that I had failed while I was at work, I let loose for a while. I couldn't get any work done, and I was so depressed that even my boss was made speechless by the way I was.

 

Actually, I have never seen Hanyu live. Since I cry so much and am overwhelmed even in the video, if I saw him live, I might really faint.

 

No, rather, I want to faint really.

 

I am also looking forward to seeing how I will be like when I see Hanyu's performance live. According to his fans, once you see him, you can never go back to the way you were before.

 

No, rather, I don't want to go back. I want to be changed. Someday! Someday I want to see him perform live. I want to burn it into my eyes.

 

I've been thinking about it so much that I saw Hanyu in my dream the other day. In my dream, Hanyu was luminous. I was completely captivated. Hanyu-kun is even in my dreams. I hope that in the not-too-distant future, I will be able to see his performance live and burn it into my memory. With this wish, today I am watching Hanyu's official YouTube channel again, which was opened the other day.

She says such beautiful things, things that I feel but struggle to put into words. :heart:

 

But aside from the beautiful things she says....I just love this bit that I have quoted :LOL:  She wants the full experience, even fainting lol!!

Thank you for posting/translation!

Hi everyone! I write here too, because it's a tricky issue: Please do NOT change Yuzu's current profile picture in the infobox of his Wiki bios page without previous discussion. Wikipedia has very strict rules for images (profile pictures especially) that must be followed. This includes:

  1. It must be an image from the Wiki Commons archives. Our archive for Yuzu basically ends with 2020 due to the strict photography restrictions at events in Japan. Our team also had no opportunity to attend Worlds in Stockholm or the Olympics in Beijing, so no photos from there either.
  2. According to the Wiki manual of style, people in images should generally face the surrounding text, not look away from it (in our case facing to the left).
  3. Profile pictures should show the person's profile. This means, the focus must be on the face and upper body, no full-body images. The image should have decent resolution, the face should be properly lit and the profile picture should be as recent as possible. This includes that the image should capture the person with his or her current looks and characteristics.

We searched our full Commons archive for suitable pictures from this Olympic cycle, and came to the conclusion that among all options this one is the closest to what we need. Yuzu in "Haru yo, koi" could have literally been taken at Prologue or the Beijing Olympics gala, so it's the most recent one in that sense.

 

I am aware that the picture is not ideal, but that's how it is. But I have good news: I might be able to get a proper profile image of Yuzu in TenChi costume if the licensing procedure is successful (fingers crossed).
