I hope Evan will be able to make the trip, all of his Japanese fans will be SO upset if he can't. Maybe he'll reveal one of his new programs there!!

Wow! This show has 3 great choreographers in the cast! Shae-Lynn Bourne, Yuka Sato and Kenji Miyamoto. It's no surprise at all FOI is said to be one of the best shows in Japan according to reputation by fans as far as I've heard. Since when Shizuka invited Shae-Lynn to her show for the first time a few years ago, as a skater and also as a choreographer, it has been getting better and better, more and more polished every year.

Shizuka Arakawa

Is it just the picture, or does Shizuka look unnaturally skinny to anyone else? I really like her skating, so I hope she's not wearing herself out with shows and other appearances.

Show line-up sounds great, BTW. Fingers crossed we'll get some videos on youtube after the show.

Certainly, she seems to be cheerful, but seems to be lean recently.

Recently, in a variety show program of TV, she explained the reason a little.

I fancy you became somewhat slim, but how...?
01:36
Shizuka arakawa: Yes, my body shape has pretty changed compared with 5 years ago (time of Turin Olympics).
I am skating for training in the every morning most of the time because I have not the period of off-season after becoming professional skater.
Then, my stomach seems to have become slim because my eating time is apt to become irregular and fail to eat often because my life pattern became not constant.
The quantity of my meal quite decreased.

Looking forward to hearing from more soon!

I do not have time to write a full review but the show's amazing with hilarious special programs!

The most hilarious program is one by Yamato Tamura. He copied Daisuke's "La Strada" program, as Gelsomina. Yamato really captured Dai's moves, the choreographies and face expressions, even Dai's entrances/exits of some elements, in a funniest, exaggerated way :rofl:.

Another highlight was when Shizuka, Kozuka, Akiko and Shae-Lynn performed Dai's Mambo program with Daisuke. Shizuka copied the first part perfectly and she did it with Dai. (Did she even land the triple flip? I was not watching but it must have been the flip...). Then Kozuka copied the next part alone. He did it in Dai's pink costume with the fake beard, mocking Dai's almost-ecstatic face, and all :lol:. After the four of them did the looking-around pose together, Akiko did the solo jump from the step then imitated Dai's spin including the donut. Then Shae-Lynn, the choreographer did the straight line step sequence side by side with Daisuke. :cool:.


Most importantly, if you think Kozuka as an introvert skater, rather shy and skating looking down, well, NOT ANYMORE!!! Now he commands the audience and expressive on the ice. I have been hoping that he'd be performing like this for years, and now he is. :cheer:

He skated to a special version of Soul-Man medley, and it was like Kozuka 2.0. I cannot believe it was based on the same program as he was skating in the last season. It has a lot of the same moves yet it looks totally different. It looks much more dynamic and as if he's moving as he feels like.


What else... Evan was very smooth and he makes the rink look tiny. Takeshi Honda showed us he still has IT. So did Irina. Weaver/Poje skated to "Steppin Out" and I enjoyed it a lot. Miki's Black Swan is again wonderful. You know Shae-Lynn can dance. Love Akiko's new program. Hanyu still keeps landing the quad and 3A in shows, and his new SP looks strong. Qing/Pang's program makes me feel jealous of their happiness :P. Yuka's program was very charming and Poje lifted her in the program. Shizuka's gorgeous as always.


The show will be broadcasted on September 25th (part 1) and on October 1st (part 2).
