Discussion in 'Great Skate Debate' started by Sylvia, Apr 16, 2013.
Thank you!! Wow, looks the like skaters all had a lot of fun off the ice as well!
One more photo from Gracie's insta. From the left Maiko, Gracie, and Geiko.
These are from Maia's tweets, Seems they are headings to the rink for the practice on Friday. How cute!
The afternoon show on Saturday finished. Some reports on twitter say Mao was in the new purple costume for Noc and landed 3A(so). Taking it into consideration that she skated at the small rink and in the lighting, it's a quite good attempt from her in this early season. Anyway it seems people loved her performance and the costume.
Many of the casts debuted their new competitive programs in The Ice Tour so far, such as Mao, Adelina, Koftun, Miyahara and Takahashi/Kihara. Reynolds, Kozuka and Mura did their new ones although they have already debuted them. Hopefully they'll air all of them.
Thanks for the report, rosewood! One question - what does "(so)" mean?
"Step out" maybe?
I was wondering if Mirai was showing her SP, but I guess not?
^ Thanks, that's probably correct
OK,babayaga, it's my pleasure. She did a 3A and *stepped out*.
Thanks to babayaga I'm given a chance for one more post. If people allow me, I'd like to write some more about Kevin. His new Ex is based on the Japanese manga comic/animation called "Kids on the Slope"( its original title is "Sakamichi no Aporon"). Here is one of the vids of the original animation.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hvjxdrEo6qQ I heard he did the Ex in The Ice shows and it was so loved by the audience. Today I found the manga artist drew a picure of Kevin. https://twitter.com/yukicdm/status/360335867300171776/photo/1 And she just tweeted she decided to go and see Kevin skating at the rink on Sunday. I wonder if Kevin knows that.
That the artist would do his portrait is a real complement to Kevin.
It sure is! And it's a great likeness of him too!!

Although already rosewood mentioned, Mao landed 3A ! show in saturday was private to the media. So, unfortunately, video of it was not uploaded.
and Mao wore New dress. I heard mao's new dress looks like similar form with Nakano's this dress. color is light purple. something like colors of Liebestraum, clair de lune.
as said, the show in saturday was private to the media, There is no picture yet
She said her jump components would be the same in next season with the last season
The title of article is she is challenging 8 triples. mainly It says doing 8 triples is so hard thing in figure skating and when she could achieve 8 triples is in her junior years,
and she will challenge to achieve it in next season..
rosewood thank you so very much for all the information and links
Mirai has been doing her Ex program so far. I heard it's choreographed by Rippon and maybe the music is "On Goldon Pond".http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efTo4szOe8A&feature=youtu.be Some reports said she was in better shape and her spins were amazing. I really hope Mirai will do well at Gracier Falls next week.
It's almost impossible for me to catch up with the news. Hopefully Akira Andrea will come and translate the articles. So I post some pictures from the shows.
Opening group number
to be continued...
I changed the size of the photos. Now you can see bigger ones.
I feel sorry I could find only one photo of Maxim at the site, so I add one more photo from his insta. It's a very nice shot.
Mao and Jeffry
Adelina and Kevin
Chukyo TV has just aired the Aichi show. Hopefully someone will upload the vids sooner or later.
Smile Mirai!! :| She looks elegant in the photos at least.
Thank you for all the great pictures. Everyone is looking good.
thank you !!!!
What are Abbott's and Reynolds's programs? Jeremy looks like a french revolutioner, Kevin looks like a Russian
Thanks for the pics
I went to today's show. As it was the last show of the ICE 2013, the cast seem to have a lot of fun themselves as well.
The place was fully packed and my seat was not the best, but I had a lot of fun.
The cast kept coming back to the ice after the show's finale, and ShibuSibs production took place.
I heard both of them did two programs in the tour( one program in one show. Most of the cast did different programs in the evening shows from those they did in the afternoon shows.) I heard Jeremy did Exogenesis and Les Miserable, Kevin did his new SP and the Ex based on the Japanese animation (Sorry but I don't know the name of the music). I guess the photos are Jeremy's Les Miserable and Kevin's new SP. I heard both of them were so loved by the audience. Some reports said Kevin was much more emoting and contacting to the audience than before and they were surprised. So we'll see.
Mirai looks wonderful, very elegant!
Kevin Reynolds + encore with Sotnikova http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=IJOqyAzZnUo
thank you ! wow I like new program of Kevin !
Love, love Kevin's new program, he seems to be skating with a whole new level of confidence too!
I went to see 'The Ice' last show in Osaka.
The arena was full. It's just beginning of the new season, but all skaters are in good shape and performed great! Most of skaters got the standing ovation.
We found Nobunari Oda, Mr. & Mrs. Sato and Machilo Yamada coaches in the seats.
Here are my impression in order of performances.
Karin Honda: she is still a novice skater, but already made an expressive performance.
Satoko Miyahara: performed FP. Perfect! Look forward to seeing who win to go to Sochi Olympic.
Jeremy Abott: also performed FP. Missed a couple of jumps, but passionate and beautiful.
Mirai Nagasu: got back beautiful and fast spins. In the encore, danced Japanese pop song with Gold and Poje.
Kovton: looked well with a red, yellow and black costume.
Takahshi&Kihara: did good job, but necessary to do huge efforts to go to Olympic. Wish good luck.
Takahito Mura: high and beautiful 3A. He was calm and did everything!
Gracy Gold: did not have so impression, sorry.
Men's group number: they took only a skate on the right leg, and a shoe on the left leg. They said it in the interview, that such a performance made big pain in right legs. But especially Kozuka had a beautiful skating on 1 foot, and their performance was powerful and emotional.
Before intermission, Mai interviewed Mura, Abott, Fernandes and Weaver. Happy to hear all of foreign skaters had a wonderful time and enjoyed performing in Japan
After intermission, dance battle happened. It was the last match and Sotonikova was the winner against Leynolds. Honestly I thought her more quiet, but it was happy surprising to see her sexy and passionate dance.
Shibutanis: danced fantastic.
Aderina Sotonikova: performed elegant in a green highlight costume with 2 big clothes like wings.
Kevin Reynolds: it was the lucky arena to win at 4CC competition in Osaka. He looked to enjoy performing there.
Ladie's group number: rhythmic and danseble number.
Jeffrey Buttle: choreographed all group number in these shows and made a beautiful skating. Looked like The Ice show can't miss him.
Kanako Murakami: got another good style of performance.
Fernandes: fun to watch the program, but did great jumps.
Weaver & Poje: original folk dance. Energetic and powerful.
Takahiko Kozuka: after got injury, he recovered and got in good shape very quick.
Mao Asada: performed EX 'Smile' with a gold costume. She looked happy in the last show of 'The Ice' tour.
Finale: Fernandez did a quad and Leynord did 4-3. They looked good rivals.
Great show! Thanks a lot to all skaters for their nice performances!
Thank you NONKO!
Do you recall which show this is? Oaska or Aichi?
Aichi aired today, Osaka on 8/1.
Ah ok. Thanks for the link, also.
