Laura's EX was clipped down to a digest (I almost forgot this isn't the full broadcast which will air later on.) Lips sealed

Tono is up now! TV Tokyo is still confusing Totentanz with Danse Macabre in their intro clip for him. Razz

I think Yagudin's program was clipped, too.
Nobu now...

I think Dai vs Nobu at Japanese Nationals will be very exciting... cheers

Nobu comeback fluff Smile

They mistook his music as Dance Macabre Smile
In fact it's "Death's Dance", a mix of "Dido's Lament" and "Totentanz"

Nobu describes his program as very difficult, especially steps

OMG costume! I love it

Huge 3A a bit step out
faast!
3Lz-3T
music change 3F
love steps!! i love when he jumps during the step sequence
flying sit
straightline steps sequence
feed please don't die!!
spins great! but please put combo at the end instead of sit spins

jumps on replays huuge!

Nobu not happy with performance, says it needs polishing Smile

Is it just me or did she not look satisfied with her encore performance even if it was beautiful?

Miki next. I'm excited!

Team Morozov = Halloween. At least for this CoI. Fried

Aw, Miki looks a bit disappointed as well since she fell on the lutz.

Miki!
New SP love the music! Yep! "Queen of the Night" Michale Nyman
Fall on the first jump
But the next two were perfect
Flying sit great
Love her costume, creepy!
and hairdo
Much improved spiral
This music suits Miki!
Interesting step sequence with stops and playing for the crowd :rock:
Fab combo spin
Layback not very flexible but nice speed
Love the final pose! Woot!
On the second thought, I would get rid of that HUGE spider on Miki's chest, It creeps me out!

Encore new LP
3S nice
2A nice
Straight line SS Crowd goes crazy!
I think it's perfect for Miki
Final spin great!
Many Hearts

Interviews with Mao & Miki. Miki a bit disappointed with her performance, says she was tired after the trip from USA. Sadly, I missed Mao. Sad

What, that was it? Well, that was one short broadcast! Sad I hope BS will show more skaters. (And Nobu's encore.)

LOVE Miki's new SP! Scary fits her!

Encore was amazing!

Swoon

Too bad for the fall on the 3Lz, but she looks Miki-tastic!

Love Hearts

Since 45 minutes of material were clipped out from what should be the full broadcast, I do hope so (especially if they go fluff-free like Chukyo TV's full broadcast of The Ice). cat

Mao talked about her 19th birthday, and how she hasn't changed too much - not a bad thing at all! Laugh

Cute! I love little Mao and Aeros. Laugh

Daisuke was the first skater that was shown in TV Tokyo broadcast, right? So Yukari, Kozu, Jeremy, etc. got all chacked..? Drama!

I can't wait for the BS broadcast! It's gonna be a long week... Panic!

For now I'm off to hunt for performances from this broadcast... Laugh

No, they showed Kozu (skated to "Closer" by Ne-Yo) and Yukari (skated her Phantom of the Opera SP), then Dai.

Interesting...I didn't like Bells when I first saw it but I watched it again today and my impression is quite different. I actually like it a lot and think it'll be a great program for her when the jumps are there too.

I also like the music edit. It doesn't feel that repetitive or too heavy, just perfect.

Mao really sold that program and it'll only get better when she hits her jumps. Her expression has improved tremendously! Thumbs up!

I don't like this jump layout either but I think this is definitely not the final version. Didn't they say they'd water it down for JO so that she could focus on her interpretation more?
I don't think they wouldn't even attempt 3-3s or include a solo 3 loop.

Let's wait and see what happens at TEB. I hope it will only get better from here. Good luck!

I actually really liked Bells, and I think it could be a masterpiece if skated perfectly. I love that Mao seems so mature now, last year there was still a bit of young girl trying to act mature. And her PCS are definitely a good sign!
I'm a little worried about the jump layout, but I think those missed jumps were the cause of bad condition that day, and not Mao feeling uncomfortable with the layout. Even the jumps she did land seemed heavy, which is very unusual of her. It's okay, what matters is that she peaks during the Olympics. (personally I'd rather see a 3A and a 3-3 rather than two 3As, but that's Mao and TAT's choice)
And how on earth does Mao's spiral gets a level 2??? Grrr. . .
I can't wait to see COI, I love Caprices so much.
