Thank you SO MUCH, everyone, for your translations, clips, and supportive spirit! I am so happy and relieved that Mao is in good shape. She is so strong that like some of you said, she is my inspiration and my heroine!!! I don't have much constructive to say here, but I just wanted to express my gratitude to you all and my complete excitement for Mao! Thank you! santa

Sorry for getting the topic slightly off Mao, but what is the full schedule for nationals? Men, Pairs, Dance, Women? And I assume that the Reeds are not going to get to go to Worlds as they aren't at Nationals?

I posted the schedule in the first post of the thread. I was trying to find the practice schedule on the JSF website, but I didn't see one... Sweatdrop

I'm not sure about the Reeds--someone else know about the qualification rules for Worlds? Question

Ok, since the men's competition is underway, I started a new thread for LIVE coverage/spoilers.
http://www.maoasadaforum.com/t1088-spoilers-only-japan-nationals-2011

That way, people who want to wait for the TV broadcast (like me!) won't be spoiled...

Hi Batsuchan! Hi shikure! I've missed all of you! Thank you for all the info and the updates.

I'm out of the loop but I came here to wish everyone good luck!

Hi Spacey!! Many Hearts

Does anyone know if there will be a better way to watch the Fuji TV broadcast than Keyhole TV? Question

I'm still debating whether to stay up or go to sleep...is anyone else planning to watch the Men's SP broadcast? Question

BTW, the skating order is as follows for the skaters we probably care about:

19 Taka-chan (this is 2nd in the second to last group)
25 Daisuke (this is 2nd in the last group)
29 Yuzuru (he's last!)

I hope Yuzuru-kun can handle the pressure of skating last! Yep!

Good luck boys!! Cheering

Haha, I feel like you and I are having a private conversation over several threads, Spacey! Hell, no! Hell, no!

Yuzuru-kun does seem quite fearless, doesn't he?! Thumbs up!

Oh, and I meant to mention this in one of the other threads, but in one of the skating books I have, there is an interview with Yuzuru-kun, and he explained that he was able to master the 3A because he watched Mao doing it and thought, "if Mao-chan can do it, then so can I!" cheers

In case anyone is watching the Fuji TV broadcast now, Shoma Uno just finished skating...

So cute!! Many Hearts

It's so good to see Yamada-sensei and Higuchi-sensei~~! (More grandma/aunty figures for Mao!) Yep!

All you Dai-lovers out there are missing the little Fuji TV special on him right now! Hell, no!

Apparently Dai did ballet during the off season!! Razz

Yayy, clean skate for Taka-chan!!! Happy dance

As far as I could tell from the poor stream, Taka-chan still doesn't get the big hugs from Kumiko-sensei or Nobuo-sensei though. I guess they really do treat Mao differently. (Like a beloved grandchild!!) Hahaha! Hell, no!

85.60 and into first!!! Thumbs up!

In the interview after his performance, Taka-chan says he doesn't know the levels [for the elements] yet, but for now, he feels like he did everything he could do, so he's relieved.

So far this season, he wasn't able to give the performance he knew he could do, so now he's glad he was able to finally do a clean SP.

Apparently he said last year's win was "bittersweet," so they ask him what he meant, and he said there was the collision and other things in the FS, so he wants to give a proper FS this time.

I'm kinda doing this from what I remember off the top of my head, so if it's wrong, I apologize in advance. Sweatdrop

Thank you! cheers

why can't the media leave the 3A alone?! Very Mad She is so much more than just a skater who is able to do 3A (even if she's the only skater in the world who does it). Why can't they focus on her amazing 2A-3T, or her much improved speed and performance?! Listening to them you'd think 3A is all she's got Mad

I just love to see her smile. Wub And team Sato is awesome! you can really see how much they love her. Many Hearts

hi everyone, it's my first time posting here after lurking for over a year now. Embarassed

i'm excited and at the same time nervous to see Mao tomorrow!
i still can remember clearly how i got teary eyed after watching Mao perform her SP at the nationals last year.
i was clapping like crazy in front of my TV. (i was in osaka last december, but i'm back in my country,
so pretty bummed out that the nationals this year is held in osaka Frustrated )

i wish Mao chan good luck! Good luck! ii engi ga dekimasu you ni

Thanks for the updates everyone!!! So many videos/pictures, I can't even keep up hahaah! Smile

Everytime I see a footage of Mao's press conference, I have tears in my eyes.
Such a strong girl, she's constantly reminded of what her life was like in the past few weeks, yet she doesn't shed a tear- like when they asked her when she resumed practice.
A BIG hug for Mao!

But watching her skate is amazing, Kyoko-san must be watching over her...

Go Maoooo! We're all cheering for you Cheering
