Thanks a lot for the links, mao1985! The pictures are just Many Hearts
Does anybody know whether Yukari has a younger sister (something around 11 years old, I guess), because this is definitely not her (Yukari) in the photos. -_-

Anyway, it's great to see the whole bunch together again. Smile

the woman next to Mao is actually Yukari! I also was surprised to find out that she is quite small compared to the other skaters! maybe the smallest woman single skater? Her performance on the ice is so agressive that I don't feel this when I watch her skating though!
She doesn't have younger sisters but one older sister!


mao1985, thanks for posting!
Mao is beautiful! I love all of these skaters! Akiko has passionate skating and Takahito has big 3A!
Good Luck everybody! Good luck!

Here's Mao's interview on the official NHK Trophy site:
http://www.nhk.or.jp/figure2008/interview/interview.html
(click on the button below the link.)

I don't have time to translate it nicely now, but Mao says something like "The NHK Trophy has many good memories for me. It's in Japan, so lots of people come to watch, and they give me power. [cut] My short program song is slow the whole time, so I will try my best to excite people with my skating. The long program is a really powerful song, so I'll try not to lose to that, and I hope I can keep up the power until the very end [cut] Q: What do you want people to be sure to watch? Mao: Everything! flower [cut] Mao: I'll try to bring out my best. Ganbarimasu!"

I'm guessing this was done the same time as the press conference (before the season started). I wonder what she'd say if she were interviewed now...

Mao's first experience at NHK was as a flower girl! It's the first thing she mentions in that interview. flower

NHK also held a nice documentary/fluff piece today - it focused on Mao, Yukari, and Mirai for the ladies and mainly Nobunari and Takahito Mura for the men. It's refreshing to see new footage (finally!) of Mao, who still gets tutored twice a week for things like English or practicing her programs to the music...although I'm not sure when the actual footage were taken.

Shizuka and Kat Witt were invited as guests, and Kat still looks quite stunning! Razz

ETA: This user has uploaded the NHK Trophy Preview Fluff/Doc:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tG6GStNfpsw
It'll probably be deleted in the next few days though, as usual for YT. silent

ETA2: ippanjin2008 also uploaded the same program for DM, which will probably stay alive on the web longer. Razz

Katarina looks stunning indeed! And so does Shizuka. queen I wish I could understand what Kat said about Mao. Embarassed

The practice footage looks like it was taken in the summer... The Masquerade steps weren't as polished, the final spin of SP was different and 3A was underrotated, so it looks like the early stages of practice.

NHK is only in a few days! ganbatte, Mao! Good luck!

Good luck, Mao! Good luck!

I just realized that if I want to follow the results online I'll have to either stay very late or wake up very early (again)... Drama! Laugh And there goes my hope for live Eurpsport coverage - I doubt they'll air anything at such an insane hour. Unconscious
