    I agree that Miyamoto is terrible underrated.
    I think there's been a bit of misunderstanding around the whole 4 programs thing - on all parts.

    Several people on twitter who attended PIW last weekend reported that some asked Dai during the "meet & greet" that follows the gala (where the skaters go around the rink and stop to get flowers and gifts, thank people, etc) about what Morozov said and that he'd be doing four programs and that he looked REALLY surprised and didn't seem to be aware of that

    Please note that the above doesn't come from official sources: however, I know some of the people who posted the info and they are usually reliable

    There was however confirmation the day before in the Japanese press that there would be two SP for him to choose from (the press specifically mentioned the names of Kenji and Morozov), so I guess that bit is official now

    Thank you, Akira Andrea, much appreciated by me your translation.

    ps: the litte flower decal looks to have a small note inside, maybe I'll post it later. (:^)

    p.s. does anyone know what it states exactly? I'd appreciate any translation in advance, thanks mucho!
    Yuzuru is known to write a reply to every letter he received from fans . It is his long-time habit. I heard it's getting simpler these days though as he is much busier now than before since he moved his training base to Canada, has become famous and popular and is getting much more media attention now and this spring he also started his university study . It's amazing he still keeps that habit in such busy days.
    Thanks for sharing. It is so lovely!
    He could have written it in English though.

    Open it: based on what other fans received, there should be a small present inside, besides the note

    Haven't had the time to watch the documentary yet, but I'll definitely make the time to do so sometime this week

    This show is the ice show "Prince Ice World 2013 in Nagoya" which was held in the ice rink in the EXPO 2005 AICHI, JAPAN commemoration park "Morikoro Park" in May 11th, 12th, 2013.

    The article of the communication time of this event in a personal blog

    (In this article, it says that a girl was born to Takahito Mura, but I think that it is a mistake because I can't get the evidence of it from the other article, such as his twitter.)

    Thank you! Is there a Japanese article that confirms the birth of a daughter to Takahito Mura and his wife earlier this week? Re-posting this Japanese article from April 24: http://sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/sports...00037-kyodo_sp

    ETA: I've only seen the baby birth news mentioned on Twitter so far.

    No, I don't find yet a report that his child was born so far.

    According to his twitter, Takahito Mura went to US to choreograph in May 15th.

    Translating to English from Japanese.
    I am going to go to choreograph!
    It's good that I can use a day sufficiently because the departure is night! (^_^)
    For the time being, I have a meal at the airport!
    Let's eat. m(_ _)m
