    This is awesome, particularly the men! Others are really good too. I wish we would have similar shows in the USA.

    Shame tickets are sold out. Here is the ticketing site. http://ticket.pia.jp/pia/event.do?eventCd=1401106
    They might sell some tickets at the box office in the venue. For further information, make a call to the ticketing company.: 06-7732-8888 (Kyodo Tokyo Japan, 10:00-19:00 Japan Time) http://skatingjapan.or.jp/image_data/fck/file/2013_Figure/Worlds/WFC2014ExinOsaka0314.pdf


    If you're interested in SOI Japan Tour, you can see many skaters who skates in both of Osaka Exhibition and JSOI.(Some skaters were added recently) Tickets are still available. My friends were not interested in JSOI so much till last season, but the cast of this season is wonderful(almost kinda Medalists on Ice). So they are excited for seeing the excellent skaters all together in one show.

    Don't worry Jeschke, Miki has been very busy appearing on TV. ;) I often saw Miki and Nobu on TV since their retirement. :cheer: I assume the reason why Miki is not on JSOI cast is partly because SOI is IMG's show. Miki tends to skate in shows organized by CIC(one of Japanese event companies).

    Miki is scheduled to Prince Ice World shows. :cheer:

    ^Before the normal version of JSOI they have special version in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Superstars on Ice(April 7-9). SSOI's cast is almost the same as JSOI(Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka). Dennis Ten is added to SSOI :cheer:, and Shizuka, Satoko, Reeds, Takahashi/Kihara don't skate. Tickets are sold out and they've announced they' don't sell tickets at the box office in the arena.

    At the bottom of the page, they have the list of the additional performers. I have very limited knowledge on Japanese. I wonder what I am reading is correct here?

    Adelina Sotnikova, Jeffrey Buttle, Carolina Kostner, Maia and Alex Shibutani, Denis Ten, Pang & Tong, Joannie Rochette, and Yuka Sato (She's for April 8 and 9 only)

    By the way, am I in the right thread? There are several ice shows discussed here. :)

    Thank you everyone for sharing reports and links to photos/videos. :cheer: Shame I can't see the gorgeous shows live! I've been waiting for long to see Carolina skating in Japanese shows so it's a shame I can't see her at the rink in this spring. Come again, Carolina! But I'm glad skaters and the audience had very good time in Osaka. Now they're moving to Sapporo for Superstars on Ice.

    They didn't announce the programs on the official site. According to the reports I read on SNS, they did the programs in Osaka Exhibition shows(three shows in total) as follows:

    Mai MIHARA(Jr skater): ?
    Shoma UNO: "Tanguera"
    MIYAHARA: "Solace"
    MURA: "Love Never Die"
    MURAKAMI: "I Want to Spend My Lifetime Loving You"
    ODA: "Last Samurai"
    TAKAHASHI/KIHARA: "Fireflies"
    Shibutanis. "I Lived"
    Suzuki: "Hymne a l'amour"/"Love dance" (encore "O")

    TEN: "Singin' in the Rain"/Kazakhstan number(sorry I don't know the name of the music) (encore "Dance Macable")
    KOSTNER: "Ave Maria"(encore "Bolelo")
    FERNANDEZ: "Aerobic Class"/"Satan takes a holiday"/"Charlie Chaplin" (encore "Pirates of the Caribbean")
    MACHIDA: "Les Demoiselles de Rochefort" (encore "East of Eden")
    V/M: "Stay" (encore J-pop "Fortune Cookie" with Japanese skaters)
    CHAN: "Steppin' Out With My Baby" (encore "Elegie")
    SOTONIKOVA: "Black Swan" /"Come Together" (encore "Carmen")
    HANYU: !Hana Ni Nare!/!White Legend!(encore ")Notre-Dame de Paris")

    I read many tweets about Adelina's new ex "Black Swan". It sounded the program is kinda experimental one but her expressiveness of the story was so impressive for the crowd. And also many people reported that Carolina in Ave Maria was truly beautiful.

    In the end of the closing they did quad battle as usual. :kickass:
    Hanyu 4T~3A~3A~3A~3A (He did 4S in the opeinig as well)
    Ten 4T~2A, 4T 
    Fernandez 4T
    Carolina 3T
    Adelina 3T

    Osaka Exhibition show will be aired on April the 12th.(Osaka Local) Then we'll find some videos on youtube.

    Thanks to the FSU mod. for changing/expanding the title of this thread!

    Another Kobe news clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOVMPHxk-u4

    I believe these news videos are all from the Nagoya show?

    Part 1 (Hanyu, Asada, Ando): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0UAzpBi1I4k

    Part 2 (mostly Miki Ando): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-pyY6qjKHQ

    Hanyu shows off his medals/interview; Asada clip; flowers presented to Ando, Suzuki, Oda: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LhaydvxueKA

    4Lo attempt from Hanyu :eek: I read some reports that the crowd had thrown presents into the rink so other skaters hesitated to try quads. Those presents might be in Hanyu's sight when he was in the air too. In the second half of this video shows the exhibition event of Mao's costumes/photos from her childhood. It says they display her 30 costumes, 150 photos and medals. Such a wonderful exhibition. ETA: I found an article about the exhibition event. Mao Asada: Unusual record, over 10.000 people visited the exhibition event on its first day.

    BTW it is announced that on April 11th(Fri) after the SOI show in Tokyo they'll have a ceremony for Mao and Hanyu. Mao's World record scores for short program in Worlds and Hanyu's World record scores for short program in Olympics is gonna be listed in Guinness World Records. :respec:

    Also it is announced that after every SOI show in Nagoya they'll have a special talk show. Kozuka will work as MC. It's still secret who from the cast will appear in them.
