Couldn't find an actual thread for these 2 and thought they seriously needed one...

I've found this extensive fluff piece which seems to have been done on them around the 2011 JO... Had never seen it before. Shot in Montreal, lots of practice clips... the media don't seem to be giving them the cold shoulder like they do with the Reeds. Although the Reeds appear at the beginning of the video so maybe there's a 2nd part somewhere?

Enjoy!

thank you. that was cool. so mervin was working part time at a skate shop? was he helping narumi with blade alignment or sharpening or something? ^__^


he really comes across as very caring and thoughtful toward her. she has such boldness and directness and yet she's so tiny and delicate in build. very interesting.

it's quite a heart-warming piece, although i was a bit nervous for narumi's back when i saw her bending down to haul all those heavy things--doesn't that supplement shop have a shopping cart or something? Very Happy

Well it looked like a very small shop so I seriously doubt it but couldn't one of the TV guys help her out? Surely there was someone else besides the camera man?

Yay! Very Happy I agree with you skfan I was really surprised when I saw how spontaneous Narumi was when they did well! Her fist-pumps and the sudden step out was so cute! Very Happy Very unlike my initial image of a delicate lady!

I have no idea how to put in pictures, so here's the link!

I laughed veru much with Narumi and Mervin's reaction !!!!! hahahahaha!
I thought Narumi was about to step out to go back to the ice ?
And when Mervin and Narumi hugged each other, I thought he wanted to kiss her on the cheek but hesitated and was too shy to di it.... Hell, no!

I'm joining the party as well. Dance Dance

My favourite moments were when they saw they won a medal (Narumi jumping like crazy is too cute for words Many Hearts ) and when Mervin realized he was being filmed while "shedding tears of happiness". He sure put away that handkerchief with record speed. Laugh
Heck, the whole K&C is my favourite moment. Yep! Swoon

for narumi and mervin lovers, narumi's blog http://ameblo.jp/narumi-takahashi/entry-11202860486.html
she wrote about Mervin fixed her shoes before she got new ones in her blog.

if you have chance to meet narumi, pls feel free to talk to her since she can speak Chinese, English and Japanese very well.
she helped to translate when Mao and her met china fans in 4CC.
if you speaks french, don't worry, I remember she is learning other languages and you can talk to her, maybe she has learned that too LOL

Haha, have you seen the dance battle from The Ice 2011? She can be really fierce! Laugh
(I couldn't see it on YT anywhere, so I uploaded it here: http://www.filesharesite.com/files/201204/1333394386dance_battle_narumi_jefff.mp4.html )
(To those who haven't watched it: Narumi won! Jeff Buttle, Sinead Kerr, Yuzuru, Takahiko and others also participated Smile )

Waah! How nice! Thanks koala_lover!

I would love to know what was said in there, especially in the first one (the interviewer is Matsuoka-san right? I like him, he's always so involved in his interviews). I got little tidbits here and there, and I know, at the end, they were discussing how Mervin said he would always protect Narumi (thank you, Naruto, for teaching me the meaning of "mamotte kure") and how nice/gentle he was. Mervin's making an awesome impression here, even without speaking the language!

Narumi seems like a very entertaining girl. Is it just me or does she move around a lot and make a lot of sounds to explain what she means (I hear gaa gaa, suu suu and guruguru)? I can't understand what she's saying, but she seems very expressive and that just strikes me as different. And fun! All the other skaters are usually so calm and collected in interviews when they get older (even Mao!! Crying or Very sad ). It's fun to see Narumi's spunk shining through. I guess, with all the fist-pumping and foot-stomping she did in the K&C, she figured she had nothing left to hide lol. In the 2nd video, did they say she spoke 6 languages?! I thought it was Japanese, Chinese and English, and I figured she got around to learning some French, what with her coaches being French speakers and living in Montreal for 5 years, but I hear something about Russian, Spanish and Italian too? And now that I'm counting, with Japanese, that's 7 languages, but I guess they weren't counting it since, obviously, she's quite fluent. study Even if she can just barely get around in some of these languages, that is soooo impressive!! And she's just 21? Truly a special girl.

Loved the part about the TV girl being lifted. Poor Mervin had to do all the work lol. And she's a lot taller than Narumi. Must have hurt. She's got guts though!

"It's like when you're a kid and you know if you make paper airplanes, and you throw it and it stays up very long, you're like WOW... except times 10 'cause you throw a human being and they stay up..." ~Mervin Tran, 2012 on Throw Jumps

Thanks for the vids! Many Hearts

From twitter updates it seems Narumi has a shoulder injury. Sad I hope she heals quickly.
