In news: Mao showed up at Haneda airport (at Tokyo) this morning and is ready to leave for COC
Mao says she doesn't know yet what's going to happen, but (taking it) normal. She looks relaxed with smile.

Good luck Mao! Rockstar

Also, I restarted my blog, even though the only COC thing on there involves a random tarot card generator...

I'm sooo excited and nervous like you, Mao isn't planning to hold back Shocked
Many fans have been wanting her to do this layout for quite some time, it seems like their prayer was finally heard

Well, my personal favourite layout for her would be: 3a, 3f-3t and 3 loop. I'm paranoid about combos with 3 loop in them, since the tech panel loves to downgrade them, and she has edge issues with her lutz. But she's clearly more comfortable with loop combos, so go for it Mao. I hope she'll manage to do a clean SP with a beautiful lutz. We saw her do it in training at JO. Now, she just has to do it under pressure.
So excited and nervous for tomorrow. Panic! If she'll be able to pull it off, it'll be another history. The hardest SP ever done by a woman. Liza had a four triple SP at worlds, but she had a 3t-3t combo, so Mao's SP is harder.

That's how a spiral should look like, love how she can hold this position for soo long without supporting her leg, that's takes great flexibility, strength and great balance, this is my favourite spiral position

Mao used to do 2A, 3F-3Lo, 3Lz in the SP (till 2009) before they got so strict on the Lz and she had to go for 3A-2T. It's only natural she'd go back to it but upgrade the 2A to a 3A. I just didn't expect it to happen so soon.

I just want her to have a good time there tomorrow. It's been 10 years since her senior debut in the same rink and same competition. Last time she was the youngest. Now she's the oldest but has improved so so much. I can't wait! :-)

Absolutely. And the sad thing, she got the same or even less goe on her gorgeous spiral positions, than some others for their avarage ones.
As I've said, I really hope the judges have come to their senses and will start being fair towards Mao. Or as generous as they are toward certain skaters...

Coverage for the SP starts at 4:00 am eastern time in the US tomorrow. Mao skates first in the second group. Here is the ISU's official website with a live feed where you may be able to watch the SP:

However, the content is unavailable in the following countries:

(USA, Canada, China, Europe, Japan, Republic of Korea, Central & South America)

Argh!!! Bad idea! Frustrated
Pretty sure it's going to be a really delayed telecast again! I better find some good streams later.

This looks like the best possibility for seeing Mao's and the other womens' freeskate that I could find. But, I don't know if I am right.:

Coverage for the short program starts at 4:00 am eastern time in the US tomorrow. Mao skates first in the second group. Thanks to cocovica

Thanks to KIG who provided this link for viewing the Ladies LP It says on the site that the free program begins at 11:35 Moscow time on November 7th.

Is Mao the only female skater who does this spin with her legs completely outstretched with her hands holding the blades? Every skater I've seen attempting this spin has their knees bent while holding onto their ankle.
