    I'm sorry. Wrong forum. Not sure how to delete. Could a mod transfer thread?

    I love Oda, as I do many other Japanese skaters...
    his effortless jumping reminds me of Kulik. I hope he skates his best this season, don't dare to predict or wish anything:slinkaway

    I love his skating. His jumps are effortless and he has such wonderful flow coming out. I hope he keeps it together mentally. Japanese nationals will be so competitive but surely he deserves a year where everything comes together ;)

    Nobu is my favorite skater! I've been waiting for the season that he lays it all down, shows off all his talent to its highest potential. This is your last season: you can do it, Nobu! I want so much to see him at the Olympics and Worlds, preferably winning medals at both. It's not out of the question.

    Thanks for starting this thread.

    Armenia Camp has finished and Team Japan is back home.
    http://sankei.jp.msn.com/sports/news/130907/oth13090711160014-n1.htm

    This article says Nobu, Machida, Akiko and Miyahara participated in Armenia Camp. Also Lambiel was there as a temporary coach. They spent a week there and they were coached by Lambiel. Today they are back in Japan. (As an information, Team Japan is scheduled to the preparation camp there in next February.)

    Nobu said "The environment was great. The venue was big. We were able to train in the image of the Olympics"

    Go Nobu! Make an Olympic Team :cheer::cheer:

    I love Nobunari!! I want so badly for him to make it to both the Olympics and Worlds this season. What's interesting about Oda is that if he skated for any other country, he would make the Nationals podium each and every year very easily. He just happened to be born in Japan..... But I won't hold that against him! :p

    Teams like Japan's men's team make me wish again that there were a couple of wild card spots for situations where there are clearly far too many exceptional skaters in a discipline in a specific country. I know it would be very complicated but there certainly have been many times in several countries where this has been the case. Love Nobu! So happy he is looking strong so far this season and seeming to have improved in counting! ;)

    I found this:

    He's so adorable! It looks like he met and hung out with a young skater and it was filmed for a tv show. I think it was in 2011. Wish I could understand Japanese!

    I saw this awhile ago, so cute. How could anyone watch this and NOT fall in love with Oda?

    Yes, the famous tears! There's another video somewhere of the same event and Evan Lysacek (who lost to Oda) is shown backstage as Oda's scores came up. The crying was so intense Evan could hear it backstage and had a look on his face like, "WTF is going on out there??" :lol:

    Here's another Oda video that's hilarious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueHUXkQaTlQ

    I love that Japanese TV and media really appreciates its figure skaters.

    Aww! I love it!
    True. Seems like you can always find many more interviews and fun stuff they do with skaters on Japanese/other Asian tv. Lucky them!

    Is it racist when fans throw monkey dolls at Oda? I want to do that, but I don't want to make him cry more than he already does.
