    As sweet as she seems to be, is it because of her looks? I know the Japanese can be very superficial that way in general.

    But she looks like a grown-up.

    She also sounds like a grown-up (I mean the tone of her voice). I was really surprised when I listened to her voice in one interview for a few minutes. I think based on her up-beat, often cute choreography I expected her to have one of those squeaky high voices lots of Japanese newswomen have. Or at least this hesitant shy girl-voice Mao speaks with. But Akiko has a very normal, grown-up sounding alto, I find that very refreshing.

    Lutz entry, counter turn into triple axel and it looks soooo easy. Gaspworthy!!

    ETA: Has anyone ever attempted this before?
    Midori Ito used to do it with a double axel in her SP.

    Thanks for the info. Now we, fans, can only hope that Stephane will actually be able to perform in those shows, considering that he has eye problems now (although the diagnosis is still unclear).

    Mao talked about her new programs today.

    http://www.sponichi.co.jp/sports/new...003346210.html

    According to the article, she made new SP and EX in Canada (with Lori), and will go to Russia to make new FS (must be Tarasova).

    Mao said new SP and EX is "very fun" and "uplifting" like a musical

    Perhaps this has been already posted to somewhere else but since I cannot find any:

    Midori Ito apparently competed in Adult Figure Skating Competition again, this time at Masters Ladies II Artistic, and won.
