Hi everyone, I’ll be in Japan at the beginning of August and planning to visit Kyoto, Tokyo, and Sendai while I’m there (luckily dates worked out for Tanabata) but are there any current Yuzu photo or item exhibits in Japan during this time I should try and check out? I’ve visited Ice Rink Sendai before and will go and see the new monument, but I wonder if there are any recommended Yuzu-related sites I should visit.

It's really a wonderful compilation of the last season. Love the music choice, too :1497158260_5GOE:

 

 

When I look around on YouTube, I feel that many videos deserve more resonance than they currently have. Yuzu's SP and EX in PyeongChang still wait to reach a million views. The collection of his Olympic performances on OC counts something around 118,000 klicks. The only Origin video with +300,000 views is the fancam that recorded Yags' and TAT's reaction at COR :13877886: ... and there are many great competition videos, fancams and MADs with less than 10,000...

 

Of course, view numbers are not everything, but considering the size and dedication of Yuzu's fanbase worldwide it's not that much actually. Sure, the excessive deletion wave plays a huge role in this. My heart still cries rivers that his H&L performance with over 3M views and countless comments has been ereased... :tumblr_inline_ncmif7esGm1rpglid:

Such an evocative video. Watching it brought home a couple of -- rather contradictory -- things. 

 

1. At Worlds, the look on Yuzu's face when he locked eyes with Brian just before his SP did not convey his usual confidence. There was almost a desperation about it, which I had seen very clearly in the look he gave Brian before the FS but missed until this video in the footage of the SP. He said in the press conference after the short that he needed to find a more confident attitude, so I know I'm not imagining things. Still, it tears at my heart to see it in his eyes. 

 

2. Despite what it cost him, that popped Sal really is a thing of beauty. His pops are more beautiful than other skaters' completed jumps!

:goat:

 

Edit: Of course the Sal would have been even more beautiful if he'd managed to pop to a double rather than a single!

:headdesk:

Lol, a tiny Pooh at TCC! :tumblr_inline_mqt4grU8ua1qz4rgp:

 

Is this the one who fell into Brian's hands when he was in the Kiss and Cry last year?

I think what really did Yuzu in at Worlds was that nasty fall during warm up before the SP and the fact he had to skate first. It was like he was still in shock , hadn't recovered yet and had to be ushered out to skate. I guess hence why the look when he stepped out on the ice. Things may have been different if he didn't go first and had a chance to calm down. But what can you do about the luck of the draw.

OK, you are right... I thought so too but I also thought that Brian's hands could be bigger than I thought...
