Thanks shikure for the clip!!! cheers Thanks everyone for the links and pics in GP series threads!!! Thank you!

Lovely Mao Love Hearts Love Hearts Love Hearts

She and Sato-sensei talk about speed. She feels strongly that her speed has improved to some extent but she needs to work on it little by little everyday. She wants to reach her goals one by one towards Sochi.

I can't wait to see Mao skate. To be honest, I was worried about her SP costume and choreography so much but it's OK now. I'm dying to see her skate ... cannot wait another week Drama!

Go Mao!!! Cheering Cheering Cheering

The second clip is about her lutz. @2:41 Can it get credit?

Mao looks good and her 3F is a beauty! She fixed her hammer-toe, the take-off looks easy and smooth, good height and everything. I'm not so sure about her 3L though, it looked borderline rotated, but 3L is her most consistent jump so I'm not worried about it. We all knew and saw last season the work in progress her 3F it was and it already looked better by nationals, but now it's textbook. I am dying to see the progress she's done on the other jumps, especially is she can rotate the 2A-3T. I have a feeling we won't be seeing the 3A on the GP circuit, but as long as this means better consistency I am fine with it. What would really make me go Worship is to see her fixing the 3Lz. Man, I missed seeing her skate! Thanks for the videos

(the jump at 2:41 was a 3F, and a good one)

Thanks Lady_in_black! Razz

So, NHK confused 3F and 3L when they made this clip? Too sweet! I'm so relieved and happy! Thanks!! cheers

Yeah, it was strange to show a clip with her 3Lz and then Mao goes and lands a 3F, but since I don't speak Japanese I can't comment on it Very Happy

Thank you for the clips, shikure!

I loved the short clip of Mao's SP. She looks very expressive, despite the fact that she was just skating in a practice session. I wish they showed a bigger part of the SP in synchronization with the music (instead of skipping to footwork while the slow section was still playing Sweatdrop).

3F looks really solid now - it's almost hard to believe less than a year ago Mao could hardly land it. 3L looked a bit UR, but it had good height and ice coverage - as long as it's entered with a bit more speed it should be fine. ANd of course I'm happy that Team Mao continues to work on 3Lz. Smile

Hopefully there will be some more news clips aired this week! I really missed Mao's skating. geek

Thank you guys for the clips and the translation! I like these new pieces of choreography that they show here, and indeed Mao seems to be working on the performance throughout.
This has been such a long wait since we saw her skate last, I am so happy it's almost over.
I'm with linglang - I was worried about her costume and choreography before but I don't care any more. She can wear a Halloween costume if she wants to, I don't care, just want to see her skate again.

shikure thank you so much for the clips. mao looks good and her speed has improved alot. Her 3F looks perfect and her 3 Lo looks amazing. She actually delays it before rotating! Many Hearts

Can't wait until friday! I hope eurosport will broadcast ladies skating live.
Go mao! Show them how it's done!!! Cheering

oh my goodnes her jumps seem much better then before, loved her speed, she skates soo fast and soo smooth it's so nice to see her attack again, i really felt teary just seeing our mao again, i think that we will see Mao on fire when the NHK beginns. one thing is for sure Mao seems to have returned in good condition.... now the real fun can began, can't believe that i in a few days i will see some real skating, i think i might cry when i see her on the ice again.. that how much I have missed her...

Mao looks great! I'm so excited to see her hard work pay off!!!

The best thing is that she's exuding natural expressiveness- and such joy when she's skating to Scheherazade! Many Hearts

I don't know if I can wait for a couple of more days! It feels like it's been forever already! This weekend will be motivating me to get through this next week!

Gooo Maoooo!!! Cheering

I want Mao to skate her very best!

We've seen her through so much that now I just want her to win and show how much she is good! Smile

Gambaté Mao! ^_^

Is it possible she does a 3A - 3f3l and a 3f in her SP?

Mao's speed is looking really good! Smile Her jumps look solid but what I am concerned about is that she is delaying her jumps. Lu Chen was known for her delayed jumps, which looked nice but it may lend itself to being borderline underrotated. In the clips, her loop looked a bit short of rotation.

i can't wait NHK Trophy!! Very Happy Very Happy

After last two seasons I don't expect Mao to be in perfect shape so early in the season, but still I hope this time she will make GPF flower

Probably she doesn't even need 3a or 3-3 combo to lead after SP (2A, 3-2 combo and high PCS would be enough to achieve it), but I'd be surprised if she didn't try at least 3A in her short Wink

One year ago Mao got some < on her combinations with loop, because she was starting rotating it to early, when she was still on the ice. Isn't "delaying" jump solution to this problem?

but mao always delays her jumps and it's always fully rotated anyway so i wouldn't fear anything there...but what I noticed is that Mao has added more speed since the last time we saw her... and her new sp looks really promising... now it will be interesting to see how Mao's jumps layout will look like, cause there is soo many things she can do....
