    The first show just started.
    Mao and Jeff (Mai was the moderator) had a talk session during the intermission.

    I saw the afternoon version of The Ice last night! It was the night where the men shone, I thought.

    Jeff, of course, made me cry with his beauty, but the one that impressed me the most was Kozu!! He was THE master of edges, and I think he is skating much more powerfully than before. I really think many aspects of his SS surpass Patrick's.

    Also, I was impressed with Takahito Mura's performance. His style reminded me of how Yuna used to skate. Very powerful, broad strokes.

    I was a little startled with Mao's new Mary Poppins exhibition. It does not measure up to the majesty of Jupiter, but I suppose she is just showing another side to her performance ability. She does a double-axel holding an umbrella, and her outfit is quite elaborate and makes jumping difficult, I think. She succeeded in doing a very nice flip but doubled or singled her loop. I think there were some transitions leading right up to all the jumps so what with her costume, I believe jumping in her exhibition is going to be something of an ordeal for her.

    The men's group number that Jeff choreographed was just wow.

    Thank you for your report, magnolia! :)

    I've read tweets about the men's group number, and I really, really want to see it! It sounds amazing! I'm so jealous of those who were able to make it to the shows. I'm glad you had a good time!

    I love Mao's Mary Poppins dress. Her exhibitions dresses are always such a better look than the competitive ones.
