AAAAAAAHHHH she is so friggin cute! Her skating is such a breath of fresh air amidst all the frantic, point snatching programs that are today's new normal. Wishing her the best at 4CC and Worlds!Satoko showing her off-ice warming up technique to Miyu Honda and Daisuke during MOI. Hilarious thanks to kind uploader
Cute. She is becoming more extroverted. In the second 33 Shoma is doing a obscene signal or it is just a coincidence?Thanks for sharing that cute clip, @Pattina!

The three-time defending national champion informed the federation on Monday night of a stress fracture in her left hip that reportedly will take four weeks to heal.
"If she pushed herself she might do well (at the Four Continents and Asian Winter Games), but the world championships are what's important," said Hidehito Ito, chairman of the JSF's figure skating committee.
Here's hoping she heals well in the upcoming weeks!According to a source close to Miyahara, the 18-year-old has felt pain in the hip since December before the Grand Prix Finals, and has been limiting her practice recently.
"Right now I'm giving my undivided attention to my treatment, and I want to prepare as well as I can at the worlds where I hope to deliver a quality performance," Miyahara said in a statement released by the JSF.
