    ^^That one looks weird. I hope she uses the first one. Of course, Mao had so many costume changes last Olympic season I'm sure we'll see 3 or 4 more dresses before all is said and done.

    I agree. They are still small but at least you can see she's getting off of the ice now. Slightly better lift which is really encouraging to see. She's got the potential to be great (she has the best skating skills of any of her peers) but in order for her to do well she's gotta rotate her jumps.

    i agree that Mao would change her costume
    She didn't change costume many times in last season. she changed FS costume once. but it was rare.
    Not only in olympic season, she usually has been changed costumes many times 3~4
    probably we will see many different costumes in each competitions
    both of two are not sure ones that would be used in competitions or Olympics

    seems like a long way for takahashi and her new partner? regarding that lift and her jumping issue i will be excited to see how far they can get at nebelhorn.
    i know it's still early but it's even august, there is not to much time left.

    Im not a fan of either of Mao's dresses... the "strapless" one is cut weird, her boob envy is out of control!

    Devine program though. Love her.

    Mao's new SP is wonderful!! Both the exhibition and SP that she did in Osaka were much better than the performances she put out in Nagoya (probably, she was too nervous the first time around).
    I love the second lavender outfit more than the first one, but they're both quite lovely.

    I'm really hopeful that the Olympic season will see Mao at her best.

    That music really does suit her skating to a T. Just the way she moves with it (even with the pauses), this will be a spellbindinging program and a great choice for her during an Olympic season. There is a poise and sophistication and more mature line than the last time she skated to this. I really hope she gets those freaking jumps under control this season because her skating has never been more beautiful than it is right now IMO.

    It is a shame that Kozuka does not have a jump consistency.
    As the guy with the 2nd best SS in current mens field, he should have been a strong contender for Sochi podium.

    lovely programme for kozuka (he's gone all big and muscular though ... not used to seeing him like this)

    love the ending .... some sort of a pivot thing done in deeeeeep edges .... summarizes who he is as a skater!

    ^^^Luuuuuuuurve skaters acting like this.:rofl::rofl: I'm sure they are totally enjoying doing this and in good relationships each other. I think I knew Jeff, Maia, Kaitlyn, Kanako and maybe Jeremy are good at doing this kind of work.:) It's a kind of happy surprising Kevin, Mao, Adelina and Gracie are doing good jobs.:D Well done and thank you ShibShibs.:respec: How nice to see Narumi still enjoying herself after the split. Hope Tran is doing well these days, too.(Yes I know Purich/Tran are planing to compete at the Quebec Summer Championships :cheer:)

    In reference, it was also so much fun to see the official twitter of Chukyo TV which was one of the organizers of the Aichi shows tweeted like "OK skaters. We'll provide more sandwitches next time".:rofl::rofl:

    As I heard Alex let the audience jump all together and act as if they're surprised at something after the last show of the tour and recorded them, so I believe this first story would be continued and the next video is COMING SOON.:dog:

    As a fan, I really appreciate how much Maia and Alex are doing to help present skaters in ways that fans all over can really enjoy. Both of them have concept creation credits. Maia seems to do a lot of the camera work as well. Alex seems like a very capable Director as he is able to get the other skaters to participate, and even the audience!

    Why does THE ICE delete their old videos?? Are they archived somewhere I don't know about?

    Here comes ShibShibs’ latest and the longest video. :cool::rockstar::cool:
    THE ICE 2013 - #thatPOWER
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPlprOoeS1E


    In reference for the people who want see more performances from THE ICE shows, Chukyo TV is airing the "perfect virsion" TV program on Sat this weekend. The "perfect virsion" used to involve all of the performances skaters did in the Chukyo shows. Chukyo TV will upload the videos on the official channel of THE ICE on the youtube sooner or later they finished airing the TV program.


    Coming Broadcasting Schedule of The Ice shows (Japan Time)

    August 18(Sat) 02:05-04:05 Chukyo TV (perfect version) http://www.ctv.co.jp/event/the_ice/
    August 31(Sat) 13:30-15:30 CS Nittereplus (perfect version) http://www.nitteleplus.com/program/sport/the_ice_2013.html?gclid=CPPXkJmDgbkCFUNipQod_E0ARA
    September 5(Thu) 18:30-19:55 BS Nittere (85min version)

    I guess both of the programs to be aired on 18th and 31st are the same.

    ok wait. Just dialed in to Mao's SP.
    What. A. Gorgeous. Program. Wow, just wow.

    This is a major step up in sophistication. Very very 'olympic'. I'm a fan.
    Whoever did this program definitely got it right.

    Chukyo TV used to record both Aichi shows and Osaka shows. But this year Fuji TV recorded Osaka shows. This official channel seems to be organized by Chukyo TV. So it's pretty much doubtful that they upload the programs the skaters did in Osaka shows only. But there is some hope since Chukyo TV uploaded the programs which were not aired in their TV programs...we'll see in a few weeks.

    Correction:
    Thank you tut88! I added W/p's video that I forgot. Actually they uploaded so many vids so I forgot one of them.

    Hope they will upload all the programs !
    Kevin has already 2 uploaded, so maybe they will do the same for all skaters.
