Better late than never! Laughing

Official Site (Japanese)
Starting Order/Results Page (Official)

Protocols:
Men
Ladies

The Skating Examiner article Star linked to in the General News thread pretty much covered the basics:
www.examiner.com/figure-skating-in-national/team-north-america-takes-japan-open-by-a-fraction-young-russians-impress

Like a Star @ heaven Excellent content from Liza (3Lz-3T, 3S+3T in the second half), except for the popped flip Yep!
Like a Star @ heaven Lots of DGs and URs for the ladies; looks like Alissa at least attempted the 3Lz-3T (DGed)
Like a Star @ heaven So-so skates from Joannie and Akiko
Like a Star @ heaven Alena's COP spiral was deemed invalid
Like a Star @ heaven Huge meltdown from Miki No

Like a Star @ heaven Only succesful quads from Florent (4S with slight -GoEs) and PatC, who lands the 4T-3T but falls three times Rolling Eyes
Like a Star @ heaven PatC maintains his PCS boost from last season; Kozu's PCS drops to the 73s as if the Nats title and the silver medal at Worlds never happened
Like a Star @ heaven Heck, Kozu's PCS is so low here that even Gachinski's is higher by 0.9 Suspect
Like a Star @ heaven Jeff lands the 3A, which is a bit of a victory Wink
Like a Star @ heaven I'm presuming Dai stepped-out of a good number of his jumps, since he has the most URs out of the men

I'm going to 2ch now to have a better grasp of how the skaters performed... Escape

Thanks, Clovera! Is there a place where we can watch videos? I was very much looking forward to seeing Taka's and Dai's programs, I can't wait.

Dai's program is going to be a masterpiece, can't wait to see it later in the season. Hopefully he'll kick butt at worlds and beat Patty!

Someone over goldenskate posted this link from where you can download Japan Open videos. It's working a bit slow for me, but it's working: http://hi.baidu.com/kakuhuohong/blog/item/e3c6767cd072191428388ae9.html

I only watched 4 videos so far.

Akiko's LP is lovely! I was a bit worried, because "Die Fledermaus" didn't work too well for YuNa. It seems to match Akiko's style well, though. I loved the step sequence. And her 2A-3T was superb! Shame about the popped Lutz, and I wish the dress was a bit less busy (weird sleeves), but otherwise, it's a very promising LP. I can't wait to see it later this season. Smile

Miki - stunning dress, it looks so lovely in motion. I love her choice of music ("Passion" by Ikuko Kawai) and the choreo looks quite promising. I hope she doesn't get discouraged and keeps this program, because it has the potential to become my favourite Miki's LP, next to "Firebird" and "My Funny Valentine". I don't know what Morozov and whoever invited Miki to participate here were thinking, though - she obviously wasn't anywhere in her competetive form (as expeced of a skater who withdrew from GP citing lack of preparation). It didn't even look like her injury was acting up (she tends to slouch slightly and favour her back/shoulder then) - it simply looked as if it were one of her first run-throughs with jumps (and possibly it was; I read that only recently Miki went to Novogorsk to have her LP choreographed).

Eliza - "Besame Mucho". A great debut! Smile I liked the way she attacked the program. Nice jumps. She should work on getting a bit more speed going into her jumps to avid problems when she grows up, but her jumps already look better than during the summer, so that's a good sign. My only complaint is her side "layback" spin - it's my least favourite spin position ever. Sweatdrop

Florent - "Besame Mucho", the jungle edition. Complete with jungle noises and a tiger shirt. I genuinely don't know what to say about this program. Sweatdrop It's certainly different... I think I could've enjoyed it quite a lot, if it wasn't for the body stroking and the silly costume and hairdo. Sweatdrop Get a new costume, please, Florent! Worship

Thank you Lady_in_black for sharing this link!
I've just downloaded Taka's program and I am off to watch it! Escape

The download worked just fine for me, it was very fast. Unfortunately I can't upload it somewhere else today, because it is rather late here and the files are big (Taka's LP is over 250 mb) and uploading one file would take me over four hours..

Then if you don't mind, I'll download them from YT Wink I've got this lovely little extracting software that allowed me to keep a lot of videos that disappeared or were blocked from YT

ETA: I really love this program for Akiko. And she seems to have worked her butt off to improve her lines. Where she used a little clunky, she's now smooth and elegant. You can see she really tries to extend her legs. Good for her! The judges really did seem to notice and it's reflected in her PCS.

I'll upload Miki and Jeff if nobody else does it before me. Smile I just want to download all the videos first, in case the links expire.

Jeff skated to "Naqoyqatsi"! Worship Swoon I love this program. Jeff is just an amazing and actor on ice. I'm very impressed that he landed 3A! 3A was his nemesis when he was still participating in ISU competitions.

I really enjoyed Jeff and Joannie! Absolutely adore those programs... Swoon Joannie, come back! Ladiezzz figure skating needs you badly! Drama!

At first I was Evil or Very Mad when I saw Taka's PCS, but to be honest, upon viewing the actual performance the basic quality of his skating just wasn't up to his usual standard. He skated slower than usual and it was especially noticeable during the footwork sequences, which are usually the highlights of his programs for me. The second footwork sequence looks like it has the potential to be breathtaking, but it just didn't have the flow and takes-no-time-to-cover-the-ice-because-of-glorious-knees-and-edges that I've come to adore from him. I hear he's just switched to new boots. If it's true that could explain it.
