Well... back in 2015 Nobu & Miki talked about gold leaf ice cream... while stealing Yuzu's limelight :tumblr_inline_mqt4grU8ua1qz4rgp:

im dying I don't think I've ever seen the full interview or at least the part where yuzu basically admits he's a magpie for golden stuff (did he just say he was interested in tea that has gold in it?) :laughing: (trust the boy with no interest in food to really want to eat gold...which has no taste or nutritional value...just shiny prettiness.... :1:)

I read somewhere that his Sochi sp wasn’t even uploaded on that channel until his Birthday.  They might do the same for PC sp? :waffle:

 

Sochi sp was uploaded a year after to be exact

 

Btw i'm curious what do you guys think? Which season you'd choose? I can't really

That's why I don't think getting an actual photo of him should be all that difficult. ESPN is ultimately owned by Disney which owns the great Pooh himself. They are not hurting for cash. I really think this was a conscious decision rather than a cost prohibitive one. And it does add a little interest to the back of the magazine. I think they just don't know how to handle a popular male figure skater. Soccer? Gotchu. Basketball? Gotchu. Figure skating? Suddenly uncharted territory, folks :laughing:

 

Ah, you misunderstood me. I'm thinking that ESPN probably owns most, if not every, image of athletes they ever publish on print but they don't have a single one of Hanyu's because they never bothered covering figure skating outside of the US. I don't think they cover FS in general very much, really. So perhaps when they found that they needed to use several images of him, they realized they didn't have a single one of their own on hand and if they owned the copyright to all the images of all the other athletes, suddenly buying the rights to use the image of just the one from an image agency didn't sit right with them. And being the off season, it's not like there are any events with Hanyu in it they could send their photographers to snap some original pics of the guy in action. So they had to get creative. S'what I think anyway.

 

That said, the illustrator looked like they had a whole lot of fun drawing that pile of poohs and the ones that are still raining down upon him. Thanks for sharing the pics. :)

re: glossary

nagging @Hydroblade again for the pancakes chart and the cacti moodboard, if anyone else has the links thank you in advance (well, I did save the links somewhere but my pc is so chaotic rn I don't even know where to start searching:facepalm:)

 

Also, anyone has that tweet with pics of the Yuzu fanboys + Yuzu all wearing a sparkling white shirt? They were all side by side with Yuzu in the centre, iirc the other guys were Mitsuki and Sota

 

Among costumes, I'm going for both DoryYuzu and Yuzudory since it looks like we can't settle for one:laughing:

But would you like The Yellow Duster too? (it looks like that costume unleashed our imagination:biggrin:)

 

Some more questions for knowledgeable satellites:

  • Zazura is it from commentators mispronouncing Yuzu's name or fans' own creation?
  • Sources for the Paprika accident? ETA nevermind, found, Gotta thank @OhYuzu for answering that question some (thousands) pages ago:biggrin:
  • How would you define the Harem? @Xen, looking at you because to personify jumps as Court ladies is your idea:P
  • also your contribute on Machine-gun talk
  • CoD was Combo of Death or Combo of Doom? And how was it renamed? I remember something in the other place involving @Yatagarasu
  • Is ther a name for season 2014-15? iirc it has something to do with Hell but I don't think it's that used so I am confused:laughing:
  • Yuzu's demonic gaze is called DemonEyes, right? Or Demon!Yuzu? DemonLook?:tumblr_inline_ncmiffG34Z1rpglid: (also, is there a pic with side by side Nice and Helsinki demon eyes?)
  • is fan uncle a legit term? (meaning, is it ok for the glossary? Also, are they middle-aged or I'm doing like Yuzu who called "ossan" people over 30? o_O)  Also, other than photographers and commentators are there other people?
  • do any of you has a video of Yuzu being a racehorse (speeding up as soon as he gets on the ice at practice, leaving others biting dust:biggrin:). I have the scene in my eyes but I can't remember from which practice it could be...
  • a REALLY GOOD pic of a Yuzu scrunchy smile?
  • a definition for Lord Zu please (or a VERY GOOD pic:10636614:)
  • what was that twitter thread comparing Yuzuru with cats? (needed for Space Kitten)
  • how would you define "squishy"?
  • what's the Japanese word for Quintuple jump?:slinkaway:

I was really undecided between TheReturnOfTheKing season and 2017-18, but I went for Olympic season because it's the most recent and the only one I've followed form start to finish and despite all the rollercoaster it had a happy ending (and Yuzu's Oly practices and Oly fluff in general made me deliriously happy), tho I would have picked all seasons if I could...

Combo of Doom :13877886:Maybe specify that it only applies to 4S+3T combos of the 16/17 season since it was conquered by Yuzu in Helsinki! (WTT free doesn't count obv)

 

With the other stuff I am sure more resourceful members can help you better than me

It seems that Brian didn't ask Yuzu about Boyang coming to TCC. 

I am not going to overthink what he said, but still...it is not how I expected it to be.

Interesting.

 

What I find most interesting however is that he wanted to see Hanyu's reaction. He certainly has a different dynamic with Yuzu vs. Javi. It's most likely strictly business and yet he also probably knows Hanyu's mentality as an athlete best and maybe even considered that Hanyu wouldn't care, or wouldn't say anything if it's not a question but a statement.

 

Also, is it too intrusive to wish an interviewer will (at some later date after the season starts) ask Hanyu about his new rink mates and his thoughts/feelings about it? We can guess, but I'm just awfully curious.

"I didn't really ask [Hanyu] for permission," Orser said. "I just threw it out there to get his reaction, and I didn't really get one. I'm sure if there was an issue, I would have heard about it by now."

 

this is kind of a crazy attitude to me considering all the communication issues they've had in the past lol but hopefully it's all fine

Quintuple jump is Go-kaiten jump (5回転ジャンプ) 

 

Twitter hashtag is #羽生くんの画像をアップすると近い構図の猫の画像が送られてくる

I was thinking the same thing. Ultimately it's Brian's business so his decision but I interpret this as he wanted to bring in Jin and is just hoping hanyu won't object. My guess is that he doesn't want to be beholden to someone who might retire at any moment

yeah it doesn't sound good tbh. I won't think too much about it but :slinkaway:  I wonder if Brian and Yuzuru haven't talked about the future, were the last updates about Brian waiting for Yuzu's plan?

This reminds me: just throwing it out there, some people speculate that one reason for why Orser is bringing in other top skaters because, including Javi, even Yuzu after this season is a big question mark, and (yes this being a business) if someone promising reaches out first, why not?
