From the tweets, they did a lift in the opening. As for "Samson and Delilah", their SP, they did side-by-side 3S, a double twist lift, a successful throw jump and a beautiful death spiral.

A more longer video of Mao's SP "Nocturne" and ex, with etc.
It looks to be completely different from her first Nocturne but I love what I see so far. The choreography is more mature and she's giving waaaay more feeling to the movements. Too bad about the jump issues but hopefully she'll get herself together by the start of the season. I'm excited to the see rest of it...

Can't believe it's been 7 years since she debuted the program. Her development, maturity and grace is out of this world.
I thought new nocturne is even more beautiful than her first nocturne ! can't wait to see full video
when she did first nocturne, she was the most promising young skater... Many fans love so much her many things at those days, I wish Mao can do amazing things and achieve as well as she did when she was young
Thank you! It is lovely indeed. I am not sure if I like the dress - it is beautiful, but it looks like the proportions are not right on Mao, and I can't even figure out in what way.

From Alex Shibtani's:
I guess Alex is recording another ShibShib video and these are from the making..
He "supported" Super Javi in the show.
After the last show in Aichi where they did three shows, all casts visited Kyoto on Thursday. Kyoto is one of the most traditional area in Japan. It seems there they had dinner accompanied by Geikos, who are special Geishas working in Kyoto in brief. They are so special not only in beauty of appearances but also in the high qualities of their traditional dancing, singing and playing the instlements.
Backstage photos of the casts.
Here's the video of Geiko. It seems the skaters are so quiet watching her Japanese traditional dance.
Chernishov, the choreographer of him and Sotonikova in this season, and Lambiel were at the arena. Funny to see Lambiel is in the jacket of Team Japan. Maybe it's because he joined the Nobeyama training camp as an instructor and the Japanese novice skaters including Marin and Miyu Honda trained with him.( You can see the video of the camp here.)
Photos with Geikos.(Actually I see the left one is not Geiko. She is Maiko who is younger Geiko. They have complicated rules in wearing their kimonos and accessories.)
A scenery in Kyoto.
A capture from a news clip.
A photo of the dinner in Kyoto. Maybe it's a part of Kaiseki, in which set of dishes are served on an individual tray for entertaining guests, in other words it's a kind of Japanese traditional banquet.
Hot girls--Mao and Kanako
They have three more shows in Osaka on Saturday and Sunday. There the audience would be something around 9,000/one show and the shows are planed to be recorded and aired on Aug.1 (Fuji TV, Kanto area). I'm not sure but Chukyo TV(Aichi, local) recorded shows in Aichi and will air on July 28.
They had a press conference after the last show in Aichi so the articles and short news clips are here and there, and many reports are on twitter. But my post is already long enough so I shut up now.

These are from Maia's tweets, Seems they are headings to the rink for the practice on Friday. How cute!
The afternoon show on Saturday finished. Some reports on twitter say Mao was in the new purple costume for Noc and landed 3A(so). Taking it into consideration that she skated at the small rink and in the lighting, it's a quite good attempt from her in this early season. Anyway it seems people loved her performance and the costume.
Many of the casts debuted their new competitive programs in The Ice Tour so far, such as Mao, Adelina, Koftun, Miyahara and Takahashi/Kihara. Reynolds, Kozuka and Mura did their new ones although they have already debuted them. Hopefully they'll air all of them.
Thanks for the report, rosewood! One question - what does "(so)" mean?
"Step out" maybe?

^ Thanks, that's probably correct

Reason: corrected the Japanese title
That the artist would do his portrait is a real complement to Kevin.
It sure is! And it's a great likeness of him too!!

Although already rosewood mentioned, Mao landed 3A ! show in saturday was private to the media. So, unfortunately, video of it was not uploaded.
and Mao wore New dress. I heard mao's new dress looks like similar form with Nakano's this dress. color is light purple. something like colors of Liebestraum, clair de lune.

She said her jump components would be the same in next season with the last season
The title of article is she is challenging 8 triples. mainly It says doing 8 triples is so hard thing in figure skating and when she could achieve 8 triples is in her junior years,
and she will challenge to achieve it in next season..
