I can't think of Japanese team without Asada and Ando. So, I think it'll be 1st Ando (GPF Sp was new and she didn't have great mistakes, then she won lp), 2nd Asada and third place between Akiko and Kanako.
But I fear that Akiko is the one who's gonna get dumped, judges has shown to like Kanako, she seems to be the "next one", and she also has shown a good consistency. I also hope Akiko'll get the 3rd spot, I loved her lp at GPF.

OMG if Kanako goes on to Worlds I'm going to cry. -_-

How about Risa Shoji? :lol:

Is she even qualified? She's 14. And IMO they're not about to pass up one of Miki, Kanako, Akiko, Mao, or Haruka in favor of Risa.

I don't think she's eligible yet. But I actually prefer her style to Kanako. She's younger but so much more mature. But she does tend to get a lot of URs though.

Me, too. I think Kanako is still too childish, but I still like her, though. :D

If Asada skates really badly, like almost all pops, can she even beat Suguri and Imai?

If I recall, she did manage to beat both of them at TEB. It's not really like Suguri is skating all that well either for many years now. :cold: Imai has a chance to turn things around but she isn't very consistent either and she doesn't get the hype that Kanako has this season.

It depends on which Suguri and Imai. Clean or meltdown?

She has some major UR issues to work out before she contends, IMO.

Shoji is not eligible for senior competitons anyway, so it's a moot point.

All I know is that I really, really want Akiko to make the world team. I guess my preferred three would be Akiko, Mao, and Kanako...not sure that's going to be reality though.

I didn't mean to go to Worlds. She will be competing in the senior ladies event though and the question was who medals. I could see her placing pretty high, maybe like 5th or 6th.

I don't know what it is, but something about Shoji reminds me of Kwan. Obviously not the jumps - maybe it's the body type?
