    She almost got a medal this Worlds. 4th place is finish is very impressive. She needs to keep improving to get to the podium next year.

    How did people in London feel when watching her FS?

    The tiny URs and that single axel probably did not dampen the entertainment value. I love the FS (less so her SP) and enjoyed seeing her give the world's audience what she had while she was within reach of a world medal. I hope she here to stay for a while. 4th place is great!

    I feel that, like Nagasu, her results will always be directly related to whether the caller is strict on the night. Her loop is prone to UR calls and her flip/ flutz toe pick technique will stall her growth sooner or later.

    For next season I would love to see a joyful and fun Murakami instead of a classical one. Her programs this season do nothing for me and I don't think she is interpreting music on a deeper level the way she is supposed to.

    I think her interpretation of the music in her free program was fantastic. A joyful Murakami would be even better. The only thing I ask is no more ugly dresses, especially not polka-dot things. Machiko Yamada needs a fashion consultant for her pupils.

    I think she did remarkly well this year. Only two < in both SP+LP combine and lets face it, even if she rotated both Loops, the judges will still not going to put her on podium when Kim, Caro, Mao has almost over 15 points in PCS cushion. The judges already made up their mind for podium and for Olympics.

    Kanako looks like a much more mature skater here.

    She's third. Very emotional in the end. I hope she makes the Olympic team.

    Yey! She gave a clear short program.
    Good for her since she's struggled for the short through this season.
    She went back to the program of two seasons ago but was still gutsy enough to give the minor change and do two jump contents in the second half.
    Go for the Sochi team!!

    I feel like now finally we are in an Olympic year. Seeing these skaters having to lay it all on the line to make their Olympic team is much more exciting then anything we saw on the GP. Also the skaters are starting to hit their peak. US Nationals are going to be insane.

    Kanako wants to retire after Olympics. But does she plan to compete at Worlds?

    Hopefully she will reconsider after such a strong showing at Japan Nationals. She is too young to stop competing. So many more wonderful performances ahead of her IMO
