From what I could glean from Google Translating this blog entry, Taka's new EX program music is the Cello Song by Nick Drake (great piece, though not sure if it translates well to show music. first heard it as the opening song for the film The Blind Side) and choreo by Yuka:

Since the performance didn't be broadcast, there is no vid yet.
http://gotakahiko.exblog.jp/15121896/
The shirt looks like blue version of last year's SP one Smile

Based on report by audience, he did a crazy "straight line" eagle cross the rink from side to side~of course the long side not short one

In addition, his ballerina-jump is over 180 degree

I am dying to see the performance

Thank you, shikure -- that's a much clearer photo of Taka. The shirt seems to be sheer...interesting! The shirt, the spread eagle...maybe channeling a little Kurt Browning circa 1998 SOI?

Love Kurt. Wub I wouldn't be surprised if Taka was channeling him. He has mentioned Kurt as his biggest idol.

This is a ballerina jump:


In figure skating terms, I think it's simply called a split jump if the skater goes into it from a flip jump takeoff. If the skater goes into the split from a loop jump takeoff it's called a split falling leaf jump (which is considered more difficult because you don't have the toe pick assisting you). I think so anyway. Anyone feel free to correct me!

periperi, thank you for the explanation for ballerina jump Smile
since i didn't see the pic for the performance, i am not sure what kind of jump he did~maybe like the one he did in 2010 SP ?
Based on what they saw, they said the jump was 200 degree in first performance~OMG
The performance is similar style with free falling and included four jumps 3Lz・2A・2A・3T.
They said he aviod 3A during PIW and don't know the reason. maybe he wanted to save his energy for 4 back-to back shows.

haha taka and yuzuru @ what looks like PIW:

original: http://tumblr.com/xnp3jrn6u0

thank you for including additional information about the program, and also explanation of the ballerina jump! yes, it is called a split jump in skating. usually splits that are greater than 180 degrees are "russian" splits, where the skater faces sideways like this:



so excited!! Laughing

Aw! That's really nice shikure! Thanks for keeping us updated.
OT: Since yesterday one of the guys assigned to do asset tagging at work for inventory this week looked like someone I'm familiar with... now I know who. There's a similarity between him and Taka-chan! hehe!

This is an interview that Chukkyo Figure conducted in '07 with all the Kozuka men. Takahiko's grandfather, Mitsuhiko, was 92 years old at the time. Taka and his father, Tsuguhiko, visited him in his nursing home called "Taiyo". He looked through newspapers everyday to search for any articles on his grandson that he could put in his scrapbook.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NNRgrEnIkc&NR=1

Honda Emi: Do you like figure skating?
Mitsuhiko: I like it.
Narration: What was it like for Tsuguhiko to be coached by grandpa?
Tsuguhiko: He was extremely tough (in Japan, "sparta" means Spartan-like). He coached with an iron fist.
Mitsuhiko: In my son's era people were doing doubles, but now they're doing triples.
Honda Emi: But your grandson has already mastered the triple jumps.
Mitsuhiko: From my perspective, he still has a long way to go.
Tsuguhiko: Even from a couple of years ago, he told Takahiko that the quad age would definitely be coming. That's what he said to you, right?
Takahiko: Right after I got my triple axel, he kept on saying, "do the quad", "do the quad", "do the quad" all the time.
Honda Emi: What goal do you have set out for your grandson?
Mitsuhiko: The goal is "hurry up and get married!" [laughter]
Honda Emi: Grandpa, you're way off topic! Besides, he still is so young.

Depressed Crying Mitsuhiko-san also wanted his grand-grand children to figure skate.

I think it's really hard time for him.

His grandpa passed away 3am yesterday then we saw Kozuka left for Aomori around 3pm at the same day.

Last night, I saw Amodio tweet "the mall was closed only for us !!! crazyy"...I thought...so everyone was happy about the mall thing but I don't think Kozuka can be happy with them.

Then he performed today and the funeral will be at tomorrow, which means when others are going to Osaka after charity show, he needs to go back to Nagoya.

After the funeral, he will need to go to Osaka for The Ice on the weekend~

and he said he feels lonely /alone since his grandpa used to look at him all the time and he won't be there anymore TOT

I feel so bad about the situation.

pale No This is so sad! My deepest condolences to the Kozuka family. Taka-chan and his grandpa seemed to have such a sweet relationship. He must be heartbroken.Sad

shikure thank you for the info. Taka-chan is so busy.

maowataiyo for translating. That reminds me of: (from page 3 of this thread).

It seemed like his grandpa treasured all of Takahiko’s achievements. I remember hearing somewhere that his grandpa cried when Taka-chan got his medal at World’s. I think he lost his most passionate fan. I am glad Mitsuhiko-san got to watch his grandson skate to the music he loved so much! I think Taka-chan talked about that in some interview after the World’s. Too bad he didn’t get to see him get married.

Like a Star @ heaven Rest in Peace Mitsuhiko-san. Like a Star @ heaven

When they broadcasted Taka's performance in Olympic, they also broadcasted grandpa's scene then grandpa cried when he saw the performance.
There was a picture in newspaper yesterday that grandpa wore Taka's national champion medal. They said grandpa went to see Taka's training everyday when he was at his 80's.
That is why Taka said he felt lonely~hope someone there hug him since sounds like he needs hug.
