    IMO, this suits him more than his current FS. There's more of a personal connection to the music here.

    I posted an episode about Nobu and Mao on her cheer thread. I also posted the group photos of team Japan scheduled to NHK Trophy. If you don't care it's her thread, please see and have fun.

    Do you know this video? This TV program was aired recently. A comedian started learning skating 10 days before he met Nobu. This video shows that Nobu became his new special coach. hahaha Nobu showed a 3T and a inna baure. The other "coach" is Kinji Miyamoto. The comedian is aiming at doing a single jump and scheculed to his one and only show in 60 days since he met Nobu. Nobu said the comedian is gifted so he thought the comedian would nail a single jump in 60 days. Nobu gave him encouraging words a lot. I believe Nobu will be a good coach after retiring the competitions.

    The commedian started skating because he was inspired by Kevin Reynolds. See this.

    That's hilarious. I don't know what's funnier, the comedian's attempt at spread eagle or Kenji trying to align his legs in a Ina Bauer position, using boards as a prop. That looked painful!

    BTW, I just noticed that Nobunari's ISU page got updated and now his coaches are listed as: Lee Barkell, Noriko Oda, Paige Aistrop, David Islam.

    Does anybody know what are Paige's and David's roles in the coaching team?

    Just wanna say I'm really happy for Nobunari so glad to see him doing well and I really hope he makes it to Sochi. Always liked him and enjoyed his skating.

    Nobu seems to be relishing competing, in some ways as the 'underdog' - not having been on the world team recently, probably helping his mindset

    Anyways, he got on the podium!
    The important thing is to pile up the reputations. This time he proved he can calculate. Moreover he became the third man to get on the podium among those six Japanese men. Love his both programs.

    I'm glad he's getting these mistakes out of the way now so he doesn't peak too early. Save it for when it really matters, Nobu!! Go ODA!!

    Congrats on your bronze medal!!

    Good smile from Nobu.

    Interview via Sportshochi:
    my rough translation
    Nobu: It was far from my best performance. It was regrettable that I made a mistake on my quad in the short program as well. I will try my best to fix them so that I can appear at GPF.
    P.S.
    some more photos

    So a gold (Nebelhorn), a silver (NHK) and a bronze (Skate Canada) already this season...what do people think of his chances of making it to the Grand Prix Final? I'm thinking he'll be in sixth place after Rostelecom??

    REALLY hoping he gets to the GPF Final!

    Looks like Patrick and Hanyu are going for sure, barring a disaster in the LP at Trophee Eric Bompard. If Han Yan gets on the podium or even gets 4th, he's in too. Daisuke beats Nobu on the tiebreak. So that's four already. If Machida gets 4th or higher in Russia, he's in (so he's probably in). Looks like it all depends on how Kovtun does in Russia--I'm so crossing my fingers for Nobu!

    Okay, for the GPF, so far we're looking at Chan, Hanyu, Dai and Han Yan. With just Rostelecom Cup left, Machida would have to place 5th or lower not to qualify, which is highly unlikely to happen. So that leaves just one spot.

    From what I can see, the only skater who could overtake Nobu is Kovtun. If Kovtun gets 1st or 2nd, he's in and Oda's out. If he gets 4th or lower, he's out and Oda's in. If he gets 3rd, they're tied. In that case, what breaks the tie? Overall scores from the two events?

    Yay! Nobu got a sponsor!! He appeared in an ad of Windows 8.1. Click on the video on the top of the site.
    http://microsoft.jp.msn.com/windows8...9-a0d1ad586b6b

    The brief summary of the story:It's kinda funny one. "Athleka family" members are all athletes. Their "father" is a former Sumo wrestler(named Musashimaru), "mother" is a former swimmer(Olympic medalist). Sorry but I don't know the girl who is supposed to be Nobu's "sister". And Nobu acts as their "son" in the film. "Father" is preparing for the presentation. He wants to make Sumo more popular in the world via his presentation using Windows 8.1. Their father making a joke with a famous gesture now in Japan. See this Tokyo's final presentation viedeo as the Olympic candidate.(around 0:15)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j60fhcJzoRw
