Chika3, this is such important news, would you mind posting it as a new thread in "Great Skate Debate?" Thanks! :)
Done! :) Yuzuru Hanyu to be coached by Brian Orser (http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showthread.php?t=83448)

Thanks for breaking the news, chika3!

ETA:

Tatsuki Machida skated to an exhibition program, Les Demoiselles de Rochefort ,
at his home rink in Hiroshima, Japan, on April 22.

He performed it so passionately and emotionally – very impressive!! :cool:

I enjoyed his performance - Arigato, YukiNieve!

There are 126 million Japanese. By many, how "many" do you mean? Basing your statement on a few trolls on Twitter doesn't really cut it, in my opinion. :P
I wouldn't call Japanese figure skating fans voicing their opinions on Twitter trolls. I think they are all entitled to their opinion. I was just looking at the tweets that popped up right after the announcement was made this morning.


That only means that you might want to reconsider who you follow on Twitter.

Only negative comments about Orser on my Timeline today are about Fernandez's suspenders. ;)
I'm very happy with those I follow on Twitter, so I do not want to reconsider, at all. :) And there weren't that many I follow who commented about the coaching change. The tweets I read were based on a search. Lots of opinions - both positive and negative to the news.

If they are harbouring grudges against the former coach of a skater they don't like then yes they are. And probably mentally unbalanced too. :scream:

Prince Ice World (PIW) shows just kicked off in Japan,
and Daisuke and Kanako skated new exhibition programs.

To have an idea, Daisuke's new exhibition program (Snoop Dogg) looks like this
(I guess the slo-motion is intentionally done to show his movements well):

Oh, and his new hair-do! :)

^Thanks for the clip, loved it!

Kenji did the choreography for this exhibition quite a departure from the Crisis.

Thanks! Are there enough videos or photos to start a separate thread in GSD for the Prince Ice World shows? I Googled and found these photos from the April 27 PIW show in Kanagawa: http://nipponnews.photoshelter.com/gallery/Prince-Ice-World-2012/G0000J4GwP9ZFX84/C0000IMw9xQyr3XQ

Miki Ando, Patrick Chan, Carolina Kostner, and Stéphane Lambiel are the listed guest skaters for Dreams on Ice, Japan's annual national skating exhibition show, June 15-17, 2012: http://www.onice.jp/DOI12/guests.html

Are there enough videos or photos to start a separate thread in GSD for the Prince Ice World shows?


I am not sure. PIW allows the audience to take photos at the end,
so quite a number of photos have been tweeted.
But since they are personal photos taken individually,
you need to ask the person to see if it is OK to post each time...


(I figure a separate thread can be started for this show as the time draws nearer.)

I agree with that.

What a great cast! It looks like it'll be a lot of fun. I'm so happy the Shibs are going to be there--knowing them we'll get a lot of hilarious tweets and photos!

I had a good laugh seeing Jeremy and Javier side-by-side in their suspenders on the cast page. :lol:

Is it just me or is Suzuki not as popular as the other Japanese skaters? I don't see her featuring in a lot of ice shows at all compared to Asada, Ando or even Murakami, even though she medalled at Worlds and won the WTT for the ladies.
