you are welcome and I am glad Yuka didn't give her something "I am so in pain" or "I am so in love" program.
Yuka said before, she wants haruka to feel the music then follow the music.
Of course, haruka is not perfect but you always can feel her in the program and she looks amazing.

They think about credit and headcount..I guess..they only send Oda for men event.
There is no other competition / event that haruka can skate before SA, so she is in.
for other skaters will be SA, like Taka and Yuzuru, they have skated in shows more often.
Oda didn't skate in any competition after last TEB, he needs to skate in formal occasion before GPS.
for other top skaters, they have more shows before GPS.
In addition, JSF needs to let other skaters have chance to skate in other competition and they send some other skaters to Ondrej Nepela Memorial including Machida, Dice and Nishino.

^Yep, but there are other skaters they can send so that it won't be just Haruka and Nobu (Of course not Mao, Miki, Akiko and Kanako)... skaters that can also benefit from exposure to this international event. Imho, JSF should take chances like this to expose their other skaters.

OTOH, I hope Haruka and Nobu will do really well. Smile

That's strange, seeing as there are other skaters Japan could send. I remember Yuzuru and Mirai winning last year. I understand why they can't send Hanyu-kun, and now Mirai is an alternate? Caroline Zhang is competing for the US, and I also saw Adelina on the ladies list.... *whistles*

What caught my eye is that Philippine skater, Michael Christian Martinez. I didn't know my country had a representative... Very Happy

Ganbatte, Haruka and Nobu!

Wow, the list is insane. I wonder why so many fantastic skaters choose Nebelhorn and not Finlandia trophy? They're not too far apart, so skaters would have more than enough time to prepare for their gp.

Good luck to Haruka, it's going to be a bit difficult to medal, imo.

3S3T? She's changing her sp combo almost every year: in 2010-2011 it was 3Lo-3T, last year 3T-3T and now 3S-3T! Very difficult to do! Thumbs up! However, she tried 3S-3T in her FS in 2010-2011 so it's not a new combo for her... I wish her all the best fo the beginning of the season! Very Happy

she said she is not good at combination beginning with 3T but she reduced her training time for edge jump due to injury--> that is why she used 3T3T last season.
news from web that her FS is Mozart but based on Haruka's comments...she didn't know from whom and which music piece...LOL

ETA: She wore black with open back in SP Smile the nice girl updated those info said it's rare for Haruka to wear costume in official practice then she wore costume for practice because it's first time she wore her new costume.

ETA: not doing good for her SP especially she didn't make levels to her spins which should be level 4 most of time. but the pic from AS is pretty, can see part of her dress

Congrats to Haruka on her Nebelhorn Trophy Bronze! おめでとうございます! \(^o^)/

http://deu-event.de/results/Nebelhorn_2012/CAT002RS.HTM

Can't get why she still gets really low PCS... scratch

edit: Protocol http://www.deu-event.de/results/Nebelhorn_2012/NT2012_Ladies_FS_Scores.pdf

Seems she got UR calls on her 3Lz and 3S jumps.

①ディヴェルティメントK.137変ロ長調第2楽章
Divertimento in B flat major, K137 (Salzburg Symphony No. 2)II. Allegro di molto
②ヴァイオリン・ソナタ32番K.376ヘ長調第2楽章
Violin Sonata in F major, K. 376 (374d) II. Andante
③アイネクライネナハトムジークK.525ト長調第4楽章 の順でつないでます
Eine kleine Nachtmusik (Serenade No. 13 for strings in G major), K. 525 IV Rondo: Allegro

No wonder when the person there asked Haruka about her music, she said she didn't know the details LOL

some notes from internet and I can't really find every source.

1. Yuka said somewhere that the way Haruka executed her Lzs and Flips were wrong and if they let her kept doing that, her right foot will get injury due to that again. Sounds like they spent time to correct her 3Lz and 3Flips. Her flips look easy now and she didn't have edge call for Lz now Smile maybe she was a little bit UR this time but let's wait and see.

2. they spent 1/3 of training time working on her skating skills. she really improved a lot and she looks good even in second half of program.

3. you may notice that she changed her 3S-2lo-2t to 3lo-2lo-2t and her 2A-3T is back Smile she still tried to level up her components even she rested for a long time and started late this year due to her injury after 4cc.

4. she wore her FS dress for exhibition and because there was time during ceremony and her FS, she let her hair down and covered her boots:) I know everyone has different taste but I heard about that if you don't use boots cover, that can show your blade more clear. IMO, i think with boots cover may let your legs look fat than without it.





her PCS...i think if she can do her SP right then she will get better PCS in FS because she got 1-2 additional point for each elements from her SP to FS. if she can do her SP good and clean, she can get better scores and FS. she needs to build her reputation since she is not Adelina who was JGPS champion. (of course, Adelina is pretty good at some ways)

on a side note, nothing about Haruka, every time I see Adeline's costume, I start to worry about Mao's (TOT)

Haruka got 7 triple jumps in her FS but Adelina and Kaetlyn still scored higher both with 5 triples only. Haruka got 3 UR calls, Kaetlyn got one UR (fall) and an E and Adelina had a fall so all three of them got 4 clean triples each. But the difference in PCS is really big even with that near flawless performance. She deserved higher PCS than what she got.

Kaetlyn Osmond is quite new also, right? I think she turned senior last season and won bronze at Canadian Nationals. She sure got Adelina level PCS already.

Katelyn has more base value than Haruka for her elements which means her elements are harder in score point of view. then she got more GOE than Haruka. so judges will value her performance higher than Haruka's. like what you said, Haruka did 7 triples but three of them are UR that also caused her negative GOE and judges thought...she can't do 3S and 3Lz clean.

The other thing is old problem, maybe Katelyn performance with more "impact" when you saw her live. an example from my friends, they said they never like Miki ( i don't know why) but after seeing her live in 4cc 2011, they think Miki is better than Mao and with better present on ice.

sometimes i would like avoid the PCS issue because if I care about that too much, the first thing I need to complain about will be Taka's scores then get frustrated. I can accept that they don't like his style for presentation or other thing but I would never get the SS scores.

I always thought that tights over boots make the skaters' legs look longer.

To be honest, I always worry about Mao's costumes when TAT is her choreographer, and after seeing Adelina's FP I also worried about Mao's FP, but this has changed a bit since I saw the beginning of her program in recent clip.

http://youtu.be/3h1ZHLFu0Gg Haruka's SP and the other version of FS (from judges view)

apparently she was not familiar with her SP yet, at least not at FS level.
She said she didn't do her SP yet during DOI and you can find some similar movement in her FS and pure imagination Smile
she did her FS first then SP but I think she spent time to change her FS due to ISU rules changed after that...like most of ppl got FS ready earlier.

ETA: about the boots cover, to make your line better is the original purpose so looks longer is right theory.
I am not sure it really helps to get higher scores since lots of top skaters removed that including Miki, Carolina, Akko and Mao.
Then Miki and Carolina won worlds without that so I am not sure about that now.

ETA: bio updated http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00010981.htm
