So this should settle the spin debate (short of revs vs sit twizzle being mistook as a spin)? But also, I think this is the first time I see Yuzu counting spin revs like this in a RT.

Looks like Yuzu is a bit in tears. Very emotional interview. At one time (until the end of October) he couldn't even land 3A. Sounds like he went through foot or leg injury. (He said at one time his foot/leg hurt)

Yuzu said this year reminded him of how blessed it is to be able to skate, as the year 2011. He feels a bit sorry and guilty being able to skate when people suffer more, and is thanking that he was able to compete here, and hoping that his skating could encourage someone (paraphrasing here)

This post has been tagged by yuzuangel as [NEWS].

From the interview - he speaks about H&E program - how he had many feelings about the program and how he had put various thougts into the choreography.

"(I feel a connection with) Lord Uesugi Kenshin's aesthetics of the battle, to leave the world of struggles where  battles lead to sacrifices - and enter into (buddhist) priesthood and find a state of Enlightment - perhaps there is something similar (in how I feel about the program)." 

 

天と地とのプログラムには思い入れがあり、振付にいろんな想いを込めた。

「上杉謙信公の中の戦いの美学、戦いで犠牲があることへの葛藤から出家する、その悟りの境地と似てるものがあるのかな」

Is that a game?  

 

Hanyu senshu says more. Below I offer my own translation because I find the other translations not quite capturing all the nuances.  Also, Google translate turns it into a gobbledeguk.

 

"(We) made many verisons of H&E.  The choreosteps expresses Uesugi Kenshi,  reluctant to fight but compelled to fight, at the moment when he decides to leave this world (this is an expression used for someone entering buddhist priesthood, letting go of worldly possessions, being aware of how they lead to greed, conflict, pandemic, suffering) and looking back on his life up to that point.  The sound of koto note represents the moment after the Kawanakajima battle, when he confronts himself as the mist wraps around him and the desire to kill falls away, and in the midst of this experience he feels the pulsing of the heart and the blood flowing - this is the image (I have of that choreographic sequence). "

 

天と地と』の編集はかなりのバージョンを作った。コレオステップは上杉謙信が戦いたくないけれど戦う、出家する時に半生を振り返る姿を表現。琴の音色は川中島の戦いの後、霧に包まれて自身と向き合い殺気を落としている中で、鼓動が鳴ったり血が流れている(イメージ) 

 

Kenshin is famous for his deep pathos toward the suffering caused by the brutal battles of the Sengoku period.  He fought like a bishamon monster and nearly succeeded in killing his rival Takeda Shingen in a single combat during the battle of Kawanakajima.  But he refrains, pulls back - and has a moment of enlightment.. it's more involved, but this is the gist of the scene, to which Hanyu-senshu is making reference. 

 

PS  - I have been waiting for the moment when he reaches this state of realization.  I am so very emotional.  He understands and will find the way of compassion.

Btw the only thing i prefer some change in the FS is the costume's color. But when I think about how parissiene walkway, chopin and H&L (his winning skates in Olympics and Worlds) are all blue-ish I feel he should just keep it lol. Thou a darker hue might stand out more on white ice and accentuate flower and bird patterns better

This post has been tagged by yuzuangel as [NEWS].

@axelwithwings team always does an excellent job of translating.  Finally we have the actual transcript of the Sponichi interview, not snippets in the twitter, from which they offer a full translation.   

 

In the original Japanese, Yuzu literally uses the English term "shut down" when referring to his aspirations about the Olympics.  In another interview he said he wanted to put a "delimiter" - i.e. putting a restraint on himself - when thinking about the Olympics.  His words resonate in Japan right now because the government had been pushing to open the economy and very slow in taking action to slow the spread of infection.  People are feeling extremely anxious and angry about this and a recent poll also indicated that majority of Japanese don't want the Olympics to be held in Tokyo this summer.  It is in this context that the frequent interview questions about his plans to go to the Olympics really irks him, as the media seems to be glossing over the pandemic to pry some titillating responses from him about his Olympics aspirations.  We all know how important the Olympics is for Yuzu, and for him to push back so forcefully is sending shock waves  across the Japanese media.  If I were to write a headline it would read something lie:  "Hanyu 'shuts down' own Olympic aspirations, implores leaders to think first about people".

@Whoopiewoop

I'm glad you recovered <3

 

ETA: @yuzupon

I was reading just now this, I thought you might find it interesting

https://www.journalpulmonology.org/en-covid-19-asthma-to-have-or-articulo-S2531043720301045

published recently but study on cases till May if I've read right (I just scanned it quickly), and I found interesting that rhinoviruses are more likely to trigger asthma compared to Coronaviruses.

On the other side, some treatment for covid could actually trigger asthma:tumblr_inline_n2pjcykAXc1qdlkyg:

What we know from that one time Yuzu went through surgery makes me think that he'll better avoid putting himslef through another odissey like that... Also, I've been wondering these months if the alcholic hand sanitizers give him any issues, I hope not!

And of course no athlete would (should?) be willing to have their pulmonary function reduced, especially if they already had to fight hard to conquer a proper one, so when I see some skaters (lately, russians) choose to behave in a "screw it" way, I feel someone should give them a big shake (who, though? not the fed, not the coaches, not the family...not even first-hand experience!)

 

Also, apparently CDC says this

"Based on what we know at this time, adults of any age with the following conditions might be at an increased risk for severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19: Asthma (moderate-to-severe)[....]"

the page was last updated to 1st December, so it looks like still no conclusive evidence, so yeah, caution is pretty much the best ocurse of action.

For anyone who wants the music to just listen on their devices, people have already put together cuts of his music... maybe not quite perfect (I have a feeling he puts so much and time work into them, t would be impossible to replicate so fast) but just listening to the music of H&E, I like it for itself.

This. It's one thing to attract the audience with popular music. People tend to overlook any flaw in the skating as long as the music is good.

But the real skill is, if you can make the music piece work with your sublime skating. And this is what Yuzu can do. Make you actually listen to music that would probably never be in your playlist, if not for him.

 

Footnote: Personally, I like about 90% of Yuzu's music choices and I'm grateful that I got to know many great pieces through him.

 

 

EDIT:

ISU has updated Yuzu's bios, but only his JNats title. Programs are still Ballade and Seimei LOL

I do think that Rika's has better form/control, I wonder how much Zu trained his. I remember he was on his hand in some FaOI backstage pic, so it isn't new, but iirc on the ice he only did the two handed one.

Rika has a core of steel!

 

Also loved that in this pic, the costumes they wear kind of overturn the usual male/female stereotypes. Of course it's entirely casual (now I'm imagining LMEY Yuzu in place of sakura fairy...punkish king and queen! That would be so fun too!), but I love it:tumblr_inline_n18qrbDQJn1qid2nw:

Not sure where to post this, but Tim Koleto recently became a Japanese citizen and his new Japanese name is Takeru. Apparently Yuzu called him Take-chan last week and gave him some advice. :10636614:

Btw some fan pointed out that the flowers on his H&E costume are NOT cherry blossoms but flowers of sal tree ('sara souju' in Japanese).

https://twitter.com/gurikonoomake1/status/1344459557372788744?s=19

This makes more sense since sal tree is one of holy trees of Buddhism (Uesugi Kenshin is known for his belief in Bishamonten or Vaisravana - Buddhist God of War).

Buddha is said to be born under sal tree, and when he died, sal trees around his bed turned white. Source

This is charming:   An 18 year old high school student (boy) named "Ippei" just started making YT videos to share his ideas about the books he has read. He loves reading books and is committed to reading 150 - 200 books a year - a budding intellectual. 

 

Suddenly, in the midst of all these videos about the books, he puts out  a video about Yuzu because he watched JNats for the first time in his life and was shocked and amazed by Hanyu's beauty and breadth of expression and couldn't help but gush.  He didn't know anything about figure skating and has never watched Yuzu skate before (not even the Olympic  performances), so this reaction is genuine and moving.  It goes to show how much impact Yuzu can have on a person who is open to that experience.  He says he is still trembling from the encounter but he nevertheless manages to offer a succinct three-point summary of why he finds Yuzu so compelling.  (1. Expansive view of the world ; 2. Beauty, Beauty, and Beauty; 3. Expression - an overwhelming ability to articulate emotion.)    What a self-disciplined young man!

 

I wonder if someone from the fanyu world will sub this video?

This is the first video made by “Ippei” after he watched Yuzu for the very first time.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ne1gd4RXSzQ

 

I am not providing a complete translation and am being very liberal in my paraphrasing here. I hope someone takes @Umebachi's request and provides proper English subtitles for this video.

 

He starts out by saying that he had watched Yuzu’s performances and was “mecha mecha” – insanely – moved and just had to talk about it. He says that he rarely watches TV, but came upon Yuzu in the Japanese Nationals serendipitously. He says that Yuzu is on a totally different level. The other skaters, to put it badly, their worlds were shallow. He could not be drawn into them. On the other hand, he was immediately drawn into Yuzu’s world with his performances.

 

He was impressed that despite having insanely high scores and no miss performances, Yuzu was still not satisfied and wanted to improve. He recognized that Yuzu is a crème de la crème person. He repeated that he hardly watches TV, but was very happy that he did.

 

He gushed on about how Yuzu’s personality “mecha mecha” changed when he was off the ice and in the Kiss and Cry and interviews. He says that he loves this “gap”. A couple of the things that he mentioned were Yuzu playfully talking to Pooh about social distancing and showing concern for the cameraman’s arm. He referred to Yuzu sincerely saying “arigato”. He says that Yuzu is not only a great skater, but someone that he looks up to and respects tremendously. He was incredibly impressed by Yuzu’s character, sincerity, generosity and selflessness.. He had been aware of Yuzu’s universal fame and popularity, but upon seeing him, he now realized why it was so justified.

 

In the video posted by @Umebachi "Ippei” says that he has become an immediate fan of Yuzu.

One of the Japanese fanyus has provided an English review of the book "Ten to Chi to" - on which the NHK Taiga Drama was based.   She captures the highlights of Lord Kenshin's life which resonates with Hanyu-senshu's perspective on life and competition.

More from Elanvital.  I agree that the better translation is “Between Heaven and Earth”.   The triumvirate of 天地人 heaven, earth and human is a foundational motif of Japanese aesthetics.  We learn that in Ikebana - finding the three points in the arrangement of flowers 🌺 helps to create a sense of dynamism and complexity in the simplest forms.

HAGIO Moto (famous mangaka) commented about Yuzuru in the NHK program aired on Jan. 2.

I found this after the broadcast.  Shame on me :facepalm: I'm a big fan of her.

Fortunately they will re-broadcast it on Jan 16th (Sat) 3:00 - 4:40 pm on NHK Educational channel (E-Tele).

It might be a short comment, but I read that she said something like "Yuzuru Hanyu is like a miracle."
