Gorgeous back arabesque! I didn't know Mao has such good extension in the arabesque position while doing spiral on right leg Love Hearts

I was too late to watch the homevid... Drama! Could those who have watched it share a few details about the program, please?

Many Hearts

I think the person filming was trying to conceal the camera, so about 90% of the view was completely blocked, but you could see parts of the spiral, steps and the ends of two of the jumps. It looked like Mao's spiral speed got a lot better~ The back arabesque was particular fast in my opinion :3
The arrangement was Many Hearts !! There were some vocals, but only a little near the end.
I hope that helps a little Very Happy
Haha, if it counts for anything, the pink and purple lighting really fit the whole program, too.

Thanks a lot, MaoMaoRevolution! Thank you!

I totally can't wait. Drama! I thought I will be able to survive until the broadcast on news clips alone, but they were way too short and cutting off in the most interesting moments! Faint2

Hurry up, August 2nd (documentary) and August 15th (The Ice broadcast)!!! Laugh

Sorry, I guess I wasn't paying attention really well...but is the documentary specific to THE ICE, like a "Making of" sort of thing? Or is it more like a biography? silent

It's planned to be a combination of recent Mao + Miki clips (hopefully new practice footage), a section on THE ICE, and probably some sort of biographical segment on the two skaters as they grew up. cat

Thanks for the link tokitama!! flower

I like how Mao is so serious when she is learning the choreo even though it's a pair program just for THE ICE. She always does her best to give a good performance!! Mushy Love

Mao's Caprice is Wub Swoon Cloud 9 Thumbs up! !!!

(I think I posted the link in the Mao News thread by mistake... Embarassed )

I love the spirals, steps and all the choreo!!! Perfect! queen

If only there was enough time to upgrade spins to lvl4, this would so rock as a SP... Sad

No biggie. Laugh

It's crazy how Mao still hasn't really "peaked" yet. In Caprice she has shown (yet another) improvement in her performance, line, and extensions - her unassisted fan spiral Arrow back arabesque was gorgeous, and her Y-spin was pretty much an I-spin! Shocked

That's so true. I was really surprised when I saw her Y spin, her posture was better than the last time I saw her doing it. WOW!
I also felt her ballet lesson has really helped her dancing skill. She handles all three different kinds of music pretty well in the programs. Cheering

Thank you for all the vid links GUYS. I do really miss Mao and she continuously surprises me with her improvements. She really skates with grace and ease wherein the audience are always in awe and no other skater can bring on technique, grace and agility on the ice like she does. Worship

I LOVE Love Hearts CAPRICE!
Cheering Cheering Cheering
Mao's steps were exactly on the music. I didn't even think it was possible for the extension/line on her Biellmann spiral to improve...but it did!
You could tell she was really happy after that was over.
I can see this as becoming one of the best EX's of the season like her Tango.

^thanks for the HD version, kirakira!

I really love all of Mao's new performances esp. her new Ex. I hope to see her skate her SP this season with the same cheerful manner she skated this program.

Mao and Mai visiting their favorite Unagi (grilled eel)-serving restaurant in Aichi
- They both frequent the place prior to leaving for competition overseas; Mai mentions that the restaurant is close to the rink at Chukyo University, making it the ideal get-away spot after practice
- Mao likes to watch the unagi being prepared and engaging in small talk with the restaurant's head cook Razz
- Looks like Mao brought Tat over to have some grilled eel as well when she came over to Japan last season I love you

cheers Anyone skating to Jimi Hendrix automatically becomes a favourite of mine... but... Taka-chan is already my favourite! I wonder, what does that make him affraid

This music and this look, I think, suit Taka-chan very well. He looks much more "into" it than last season and I love that. I hope his competitive programs will have that kind of spirit as well!!

Hihi everyone! Thanks for posting all the links!sunny

Caprice is GORGEOUS, as expected. WOW! I love the camel spin with the fan behind her back. The step sequence is ridiculous, but at the same time, it looked just like steps that would go into a competitive program (it reminded me of the "Masquerade Waltz" steps).

Which does make me wonder, do you guys think that this could potentially be reworked into an SP? I thought maybe TAT purposely made this program very difficult/demanding (and included the 3T) so that it would help Mao with her actual programs, but now I'm wondering if they're secretly planning to maybe use this as a competitive program, if perhaps "Masquerade Waltz" doesn't work out.

"A Whole New World" with Jeff was just PERFECT. Swoon
I was really impressed, honestly. Last year I thought their "Enchanted" program was just a little awkward/they were a little shy, but this time it seemed like they both were really enjoying themselves. And dare I say it? They had chemistry! (Oh no, what about Taka-chan?! Hell, no! )

Thanks clovera!! flower

This clip made me almost tear up, because they asked the restaurant's head cook why he likes Mao, and he said something like, "Because she'll talk to anyone, even an old guy like me. She's cute, she works hard, and she tries hard. She's a Japanese treasure, a world treasure. Truly." Aww!

Apparently TAT really liked the unagi; she said it was really good and ate everything! ROTFLMAO

Is Mao taller than Mai now, or is that just the shoes? Suspect

Off to watch Taka's EX, which is really his short program, now! Escape
