when there was Cup of China, there were Eastern Japanese and Western Japanese Championship
Haruka and Dice won Eastern Japan.

she wore the jacket from her university for local competition.

she got new backup plan...she didn't land her 2A well then she replaced her Lz by 2A+3T Smile
the other good news is she didn't have UR call except the 2A she fall.

Thanks for the news shikure. But why did Haruka compete there, since she has a GP assignment? Did she have to, to qualify for nationals? scratch

She didn't get schedule conflict so is Dice... Mad she participated Eastern Japan Championship last year too because she got 1st and 6st assignment of GPS for both years.
Then she didn't have competition within two weeks and she is not seed for JNC (Yuzuru was third last year so he is seed)~stupid JSF rules.
she needs to participate to qualify national based on rules but right before Eastern Japan (very last min) , I saw a list that they listed her as "no need to compete for qualifying"...

to look at the bright side that she can try her programs again before NHK, and she actually tried a lot of different things here.
she changed her SP to 2A, 3Lo+3T then 3S but she didn't land her 3Lo so became 3S+2T again.

btw, Kumiko sensei was there with her Smile

Stupid rules. Oh well, congrats Haruka. Very Happy

On a sad note, Miu Sato did not even reach the free skate. So, I guess that means she won't go to junior nats and she's done for the season. . .

so is fumie...she was 11th...
I think Miu Sato should has injury. If my memory is correct that she had fatigue fracture then sort of recovery from that after last Nats. but what she showed in JGP is totally not usual.

But... she was 2nd in the SP? Shocked And who won the SP? I can't understand the name using Google Translator... And, the 3S, 3F and the loops would have been probably < in a GP, since she got low GOEs, they were maybe "almost" and we know that international Specialists are always so harsh now with the rotations (just think about Mirai's CoC FS... Sad )
And the scores weren't really inflated: 24.80 and 48 are almost lower than what she received at SA (24.30 and 52)!

Yuki Nishino won the SP but I don't think Haruka will be downgraded in international competition since she didn't get any UR call in SA.
I won't worry about Haurka's UR too much and I worry about her SP more than FS.
she has great flow in FS and what she made mistake in SA FS was overturned not UR.
Her problem now is how to deliver a good SP and brings those good impression to her FS.

During interview, she said she was not at her best that she took rest a little bit after SA since they worked too hard.
so they took time to start slower and want to peak at right timing.

Haruka's ex in NHK trophy...back up here
she hit her 2A3T and 3S here Smile she also did a perfect 2A3T in 6 mins practice but it's shame that she didn't make it in program.
but i felt angry after seeing protocol since someone gave her lower than 5 in components.
she hit 3F, 2A (plan 2A3T), 3Lz (fluz, <) ,3S, 3Lo2T2T, 3Lo and fall on final 3S...at least she landed 4 good triples then she got less than 5 in execution?
the program is with great flow than some of programs and she didn't slow down in second half. there were only two significant mistakes, the fluz (almost everyone has) then fall for 3S (come on...even guys like taka and yuzuru fall that too in late of program)
anyway...I hate PCS Evil or Very Mad

Thanks again for the YT link! Thank you!
Disappointing there's no music, but finally Haruka managed to nail her jumps in this pro. I'm so thrilled and happy for her! I love this program and had wanted to see it skated well, and she did so more or less.
I found out she had been suffering a minor injury of some sort this season, and believe that was the main reason she didn't get good results aside from her nerve issues. But she really is a good skater when she's at her best, and surprisingly dynamic with speed and stamina.
I personally wish she'd keep this SP for next season too, cause if she skates it without faults, I think she can achieve real high scores for it (if the judges are fair... Rolling Eyes ). Anyway I so love this pro! Mysterious, exciting a bit sexy but not too sexy; just the right kind of pro for Haruka to challenge at this point. Smile

Pochi, thank you too~I wasn't around often due to my job and thanks for all the translation and update. she said she didn't feel she was in bad condition in Nats, actually she landed all jumps she planned in 6mins practice including 3T3T in SP and 2A3T in FS but just can't land it in competition.

for SP, she said she started to practice 3F3T after nationals and ppl said she tried 3Lz3T in practice there. I remembered nagakubo coach once said Haruka can land 3Lz3T in interview early 2011. but Haruka said Lz put more pressure than flip on her right foot.

Haruka just skated her FS almost clean with upgraded version of dress
3F, 2A3T, 3S, 2A (she removed her 3Lz) 3Lo2T2T, 3Lo, 3S2T(so)
58.64 57.52 116.16 total 175.83 1st for senior ladies...(akko didn't do well Sad I start to worry about her)

Wonderful skates from Haruka! It's so good to finally see her skate clean. I hope she keeps it up and continue skating those 3-3s.

some news

http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/e-japan/tokyo23/news/20130129-OYT8T00084.htm


her smile was so gorgeous in /after programs and in kiss&cry, ppl gave her standing ovation for both SP and FS.
you even can catch the smile on her face after landing the 3F3T...like what she used to do after landing her 3Lo all the time.
after FS, ppl even applauded to rush the score Very Happy
but in interview she cried, she said she wanted to turn back the time and performed like this in nats.
she felt regret after nats that she can't show what she is capable to do and felt don't' know what to do after nat.
then she got back to training and started over from practicing timing for taking off for jumps.

those vids without music just show you that she is the skater you can watch without music and remind me how figure skating should be.

ETA: one fact surprises me that she is the only senior ladies in Jpn trying something other 3T3T in competition. and she didn't like 3T3T because she said she is not good at combination jump starting with 3T Smile

This is great news for Haruka! Very Happy This should boost her confidence for next season.
Does anyone know if second and third placed skaters get any ranking points as well, or only the winners?

Thanx, I wasn't sure how the rules work for B Internationals.

Awesome! So Haruka has potentially 2 GP competitions, if she gets invited to one GP outside Japan, and Japan Fed decides to invite her to NHK as well. I wonder who'll get the second spot (alongside Mao) for NHK, Akiko or Kanako?

SP: Song without words in D major, Op.109 (new arrangement)
can be found on youtube of her DOI performance, FaOI one has been removed and with some changes for step sequence
FS: Concerto pour piano of Saint-Preux, choreo. by Pasquale Camerlengo
(http://www.xiami.com/song/1768953636?spm=a1z1s.3521865.23309997.1.2xUduN)
can see her costume on her own facebook, blue one shoulder dress. because her account is not public account, I won't repost here.

Per information on twitter, all dresses we saw in DOI, PIW, FaOI are not official costume.
We can expect more beautiful costumes from her in the season.

I believe she recently won Ondrej Nepela Memorial, beating Christina Gao from USA and Nicol Govsiani from Russia Rockstar And was underscored on PCS, IMO.
I really like Haruka a lor
Thank you Shikure for posting her programs
