    Unfortunately, Hanyu's performance was cut from the broadcast - so unless someone recorded it at the rink, you wont see it on YouTube. Cross your fingers because the show is usually repeated on the BS-Fuji [the satellite channel] in full. I'm waiting too, because that was my favorite program of all of them.

    The music definitely suited his style - or maybe his choreographer made his moves to suit to the music. He was very balletic in this number - of course it's still rough, but by the end of the season this program should be outstanding.

    Does anyone know who choreographed this? WAs it Miyamoto?

    Does anyone know if there is a recording available of the music?

    Thanks for the links guys.

    Love Dai's program. It just flew by and I was almost surprised when it was over. That top is a little girly though. It looks like this maternity blouse one of my cousins had.

    Love Plushenko and Lambiel. Murakami was great and Suzuki's new SP is really interesting. Love her dress. Lepisto's program didn't hold my attention, but she's a quality skater of course. Pretty song.

    Mao's Chopin is lovely. That lyrical style suits her so much more than the stuff she's been skating to. If she skated these types of programs competitively, I might actually start to like her skating. Love the simple dress too, esp. after the Tarasova monstrosities we've had to endure from her.

    Miki looked like she was having fun, but somehow, her movements still looked a little, I don't know...restrained...to me.

    Thank you for having pointed out the error of spelling in my translation.
    I could correct the spelling of her name soon thanks to you.

    In Japanese pronunciation, we usually pronounces "L" as same as "R", because we are not conscious of the difference of "L" and "R".
    Namely, we pronounce "Laura Lepisto" like "Raura Repisuto" in Japanese.

    Therefore, many Japanese are apt to mistake it, even when writing in English.

    My impression.
    The highlights were Tatsuki Machida and Kanako Murakami.
    Machida's "Dark Eyes" choreographed by Kenji Miyamoto has many folkdance-like movements. It's worth to watch. His jumps were perfect. I think he will get 3rd spot of national team this year.

    Nanri Yasuharu was also fun to watch. I lurrrve him.

    Mao and Daisuke completed "art" I think.
    Flankly I don't find anything fresh movement in Stephane's choregraphy, but Daisuke showed us new beautiful movements. I also love his costume.
    Mao was stunning, I've wanted to watch her in simple costume. It made her beautiful posture stand out.

    It is even more fun how her name is pronounced as if it is Italian

    ITA! He knows how to move to jazz music. I never thought I'd see a cartwheel in a program. And I loved that funky toe loop he did where he brought his knees and arms up. It's great when skaters take advantage of the absence of the COP in their programs and come up with interesting skating moves.

    The Amelie program is beautiful. I hope Dai continues to skate that exhibition. I can't wait to see the short program Stephane choreographed for him.

    Ha ha! I don't think Daisuke's movements were new. . . We've seen them lots of times from Stephane Lambiel! It was almost spooky seeing him skate so much like Lambiel. Speaking of whom, I actually thought Stephane's program was new and fresh. He was very expressive and he also did some things I'd never seen him do before, like the opposite direction axel and the bent leg double toeloop.

    I think that was his SP - or an early version at least. From Japanese sites they are saying Daisuke had 3 SPs choreographed for himself. Two from Lambiel and one from Shae-Lyn Bourne [???] I'm not sure if this is right, but that's what they are saying.

    I thought the announcer at the rink introduced Daiskuke by saying this was his new SP [but I could be wrong].

    This was Daisuke's new EX program. Stephane had given him two music choices, and Daisuke picked one for his SP, and they used the other one (Amelie) for his EX since they finished his SP just in one week and they had extra time to make another program (EX).

    Dai will work with Shae-Lynn to make his 2nd SP program later.

    Well thanks for clearing that up! It was an amazing program in any case, and he performed it really well for it being so early in the season.

    Suzuki was wonderfully musical.

    I had forgotton how light and free Asada could skate until I saw this. Beautiful arms. Being away from TAT is good for her.

    Ando is a much better show skater than a competitive skater. At least her show outfits are :smoking:

    Well, actually TAT choreographed the Ballade. So TAT can, sometimes, be just wonderful.
    Mao... I have tears in my eyes. Great piece of music and great skater, in perfect harmony.
    Why, why are her Exhibitions so much better than her competitive programs? On the one hand, I respect that. On the other, it seems a shame...
    But no matter, her Ballade is glorious.

    Isn't Tarasova a lot about Dramatic Free skates? Over and over you see that her competitive free skates are major drama.

    I hear that after the show in June 27th (JST), the fan meeting with players who wore "Yukata" or "Japanese traditional casual wear in summer" was held in Shin-Yokohama Skate Center.
    I hear that the meeting was held in a banquet hall in Shin-Yokohama Prince Hotel and Plushenko, Lambiel, Lepisto, Cathy and Chris participated, answered to various questions, shook hands with lottery winner in fans and took photo together.
    Plushenko and Lambiel seem to have danced with an ad-lib movement to the back ground music of the time for shaking hands with fans.

    Shin-Yokohama Skate Center is the facility of Shin-Yokohma Prince Hotel, but it seems to take about 7 minutes to walk from the rink to the hotel

    I was there to watch the skaters live, and was so taken away by Daisuke, Mao, Akiko, and Kanako. When Mao just about finished her Ballade the rows behind me were nearly quiet as though you could hear a pindrop, and after that storms of applause. It was a treat for me.
    Akiko really transformed herself in her program, great expression, and that dress looked lovely. One of my favourite performances of the night.

    It's probably just the burden being off her shoulders then
