Yuzuru is the greatest axel conjurer. He simply does everything he can to ensure he is well prepared. And we fans are fully "serviced" as well. Thank you, Yuzu! :darklordyuzu:

Hahaha, I think I like that announcer.  "A bombardment of flowers and cuddly toys"!  And when Yuzu was shaking Pooh around 8:21: "Even Pooh Bear's getting a little overexcited".  :68468287:  I love it.

When dealing with Yuzu and his programs and his creation of his programs I am beginning to articulate in my mind exactly what Yuzu has become over these last several seasons.  It began with Seimei, which most commentators got wrong thinking Abe no Seimei was a samurai warrior.  Actually he was an astronomer and a spiritual advisor to a number of high-ranked officials, including at least one emperor.  After his death a great number of tales started being created about him so that today Seimei is an historical figure whose life has become the basis of a large body of mythical adventures.  I haven't been able to get into any great detail of exactly what kind of figure he is today, not knowing any Japanese, but I think if we were looking for a Western counterpart King Arthur's spiritual adviser Merlin would fill the bill.  What struck me right from the first time I saw Yuzu's Seimei was its tone, its aura, you might say.  Yuzu seemed not to be skating but contemplating and mirroring that contemplation through his actions. 

 

When comparing Seimei with his earlier programs I could see that while there was still drama in them, drama we had seen to great effect in RJ1 and POTO most notably, Seimei had a serenity about it that seemed to me a clear departure from Yuzu's earlier competitive programs.  That feeling was reinforced with Hope and Legacy.  Again there is a serenity in the program that indicates that Yuzu seems to be approaching his programs from an angle that appears to me to be quite revolutionary from normal figure-skating practice.  His two programs for this season, particularly Origin, simply reinforced my sense that Yuzu is moving in a direction that both extends what skating can do interpretively (although a skater would have to have the essential mindset of Yuzu to truly duplicate it) but what it can do spiritually.  Looking at his two programs for this season I have no trouble in thinking they are not interpretations but meditations.  In that sense Yuzu is doing something that is in certain ways quite revolutionary for figure skating, making his programs into spiritual journeys.  And unlike Misha Ge and Jason Brown, who seem to be following a similar aesthetic although not nearly as intense, Yuzu is able to incorporate the more difficult elements of figure skating without losing the flow and the integrity of the overall program.  

 

He said he incorporated the concept of "wa" in his program, for both SEIMEI and Hope & Legacy, that's why it feels different from others. Theres a very long topic / discussion about this on Youtube I think, in vids of the creation of SEIMEI / Hopulega, also he mentioned it a bit after the olympics with Shuzo Matsuoka.

Sooooo, as a new Yuzu fan, I wanted to know how it was before he became 2x OGM. I went back to many forums. And boy...to say it's crazy is an understatement, esp after Jap Nast 2013. He was even called a sick kid who needs food and a yellowish boy whose mother doesn't let him go anywhere without her! It made me realize how our boy has nerves of steel because I personally wouldn't have been able to endure that. I became even more thankful that Yuzu continued to improve himself further and proved everyone wrong. He made himself the prime example of making the impossible possible. What a tough guy! So worthy of all the love in the world!

OMG just finished catching up with this thread!!! :10640793: one week abroad with limited internet and no time at all...it was killing me guys!!! BUT I managed to see Yuzu’s performances and also to sneak out and get a Banner and two Winnie Poohs for CoR. Then I finally took a cab to go back and before getting in, I saw the license plate: AXL... of course I read Axel...:facepalm: LOL

And speaking about Axel... Yuzu and the podium... hahaha... how come I didn’t notice it?!!!!

I agree. Shoma hasn't really discovered himself as a figure skater yet. Sometimes I wonder if he has any long term goal in figure skating. Despite of his achievement so far, I struggle to remember his absolute "This is it!" moment. Technicality and artistry alone do not make a truly great skater. I feel Shoma and figure skating are bound by "because he's nice to me, I'm staying with him for now" level of love while Yuzu and figure skating are bound by "till death do us part" level of commitment. When someone is talented with something and also is crazy about the very thing that they're good at, it can create something truly amazing and that is Yuzu's case with figure skating. But this is my personal opinion and if anyone here knows Shoma's true love moment for figure skating, I'd like to know. I really need to see him in different light as he's been in Yuzu's shadow for too long.

 

I love the way Jun is progressing and developing :img_21: He's TCC boy through and through. With his cute baby face and almost fully developed physique, the contrast creates very interesting outlook. His skating skill is coming along nicely and I like his spins too. But I feel his arm movements are too casual sometimes in choreos. Because Yuzu is so flexible and jelly like, sharpness of movements may not come naturally for him but he still manages to achieve that feeling of precise movement into his choreograph. 

 

While I was watching Helsinki GP, I couldn't help but thinking "Who is the rival for Yuzu here?" as the point difference was just ridiculous. Few commentators viewed that Nathan and Shoma would be the ones that challenge Yuzu but deep down I didn't think they could truly beat Yuzu. For point wise or podium orders, sure either of they could (and have) beat Yuzu. But to surpass Yuzu for what he's achieved in figure skating not just records but also as a whole, only Yuzu himself can do that. I can't see anybody else in the field right now can go beyond Yuzu where he is now. We'll have to leave that to future skaters who's starting point is YUZURU HANYU.

 

I've watched different commentary SP/FS and it's funny to hear commentators praising Yuzu as "the greatest ever skater" or "GOAT". To me, some of them were just saying it like a phrase rather than complimenting him. It is so rare to have 2 time olympic gold medalist still competing and showing he's hungry for more. For them to get used to the idea that Yuzu is here to stay and win again, it'll take a little more while. For me, I know this will never happen again in my life time so I'm going to make most of it and be gracious for every piece of Yuzu:tumblr_inline_n18qr5lPWB1qid2nw:

 

....there was one moment while watching Shomas free live in Milan whenfor the first time I appreciated his sharp movements, his blades, and his fight.

 

The situation fitted his temperament, perhaps, because he had to fight really hard this day and it was important to him. 

 

This was a Shoma— moment for me and I feel more positive about his performance since then.

 

But in general I feel the same as you about Shoma and skating.

Thanks for the info. I skipped Milan after Yuzu announced wd and haven't watched all of them. I did see Boyang's fs on YT and was devastated then I was put off so didn't watch the rest... :D I'll go back and watch Shoma's fs.
