    Thanks, Akira Andrea! Your translations are always appreciated. :)

    Does this mean Miki will compete next season?

    ^ I don't know if it means that, Daisuke is still there and he might not either. I think it's just a list of skaters who could be funded if they choose to accept it.

    In Japan, I think that it is believed that Miki Ando is competing as leading player not only till next season but also till Sochi Olympics at least.

    The Kyoka Senshu or the Training Player is the player that Japan Skating Federation aims to train and to make grow.
    There are three grades which were decided by the result of Japan Nationals etc mainly,
    Namely, they are the Special Training Player, the Training Player A and the Training Player B.
    It got to consider much moreover the ability than the age from last season.

    Akiko did not make the special team :(

    Seriously, she is currently 2ND in both World Rankings and World Standings. How come Akiko can not get the best envelope??

    Oh, I see. Thanks for answering!

    I know. :( It's ridiculous that she didn't make the special team.

    As far as looking from the actual results of Akiko Suzuki in the international or the domestic, I also can't find the reasonable reason that JSF must grade down her from the Tokubetsu Kyouka Senshu or the Special Training Player.
    I extremely regret that such a decision was done by JSF without showing the reasonable grounds.
    I guess that the decisive reason why she was downgraded is because she couldn't get the good result in the last chance "the Four Continents" which she was given for revaluation.
    In that event, she finished to the seventh place unfortunately.
