Oh yes, that is it!! Happy dance

Mao's expression when her teacher walked in was PRICELESS!! Hell, no! She was soo surprised! It was adorable!! Swoon

Mao looks cute in this outfit! Many Hearts

Mao's expression when they said they borrowed a video from her mother was also hilarious! ROTFLMAO

Sadly, I couldn't catch the name of either of the pieces! Sweatdrop

Black kitty Mao was sooo cute!!! Many Hearts

Mao was on pointe by 8! Wow, I'm impressed! WOW! But I do think that Mao makes a better skater than a ballerina, at least judging from the clips from when she was little...geek

I turned on KeyHoleTV in the middle of this segment! It was pretty interesting! They did this whole dramatization of Kumiko at 18, and getting locked in the house with no phone after her parents found out she was dating her 52-year old teacher, and then her running away with Ochi-sensei...it was pretty interesting! Hell, no!

And I guess she had a son (Tomohori?) when she was 20 yrs old, so they showed some clips of him partnering her when he was 16 and she was 36! WOW! Kind of weird, but kind of cool too!

If anyone is curious, here's the website for the ballet academy where Kumiko teaches (and where I guess Mao trained from when she was 3 yrs old):

I guess Mao was like one of those little girls in the pictures! flower

I think eight years old Mao is dancing Princess Florine Variation from Sleeping Beauty. clown

Oh yes, that is it!! Happy dance

This site has some screenshots from the video and a full transcription, which I've translated below.

http://ameblo.jp/mimiskate/entry-10260543383.html

(In the comments below the transcription, #5 also mentions that he/she has heard a lot of people talking about Mao maybe using "Swan Lake" for the Olympic season. I tell you, it's everywhere. WOW!)

Here's another version of the video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3C6R2LXnXus

TRANSLATION:
**********
Narrator: Inside, the World Team Trophy is being held.
Kumiko-sensei: Today, I'm going to watch figure skating. Because one of my students will be appearing.
Narrator: A student who is a figure skater!?

Narrator: And then at night [subtitle: Tokyo - Shinjuku], in order to meet her student, she came to a hotel in Tokyo's Shinjuku.

Kumiko: Mao-chan
Mao: Ah!!

0:30
Narrator: On that day, Kumiko went to meet her student.
Kumiko: Mao-chan
Mao: Ah!!

Kumiko: Are you surprised?
Mao: It's been a long time!

Kumiko: It's been a long time, good morning.
Mao: Good morning.

Kumiko: You're all grown up!
Mao: I was surprised~~. I was really surprised!

Narrator: The truth is that it was a secret that Kumiko was coming to see Mao. It's actually been 5 years since they last met.

Before Mao started figure skating, from when she was 3-years old she studied ballet with Kumiko-sensei for 8 years, two times a week.
Up until this day, Mao had been competing in the figure skating World Team Trophy. That rich power of expression and high level of artistry, which achieved the first 200+ point score for a Japanese woman, surely was cultivated during her ballet times.

Kumiko: Does ballet help you with skating?
Mao: It does. There are many similar points, so I think it's really essential.

Announcer: For today, we borrowed a video from Mao's mother, and we'd like the two of you to watch it.

[Mao's face here is hilarious! And adorable! ROTFLMAO]

Mao: I wonder what video…Ah! A contest?
Kumiko: Yes, that's it.
Mao: Ah, hahaha.

Narrator: This is a video of Mao appearing in a ballet contest when she was 8 years old. The choreography was done by Kumiko.

[I couldn't hear what Kumiko said when the narrator was talking.]

Mao: I'm really stiff.
Kumiko: Yes, you are stiff.

Narrator: And here, this is the first TV broadcast of a precious video of Mao when she was 5 years old.

Mao: I really liked this.
Kumiko: Yes, it's so cute; I remember this well.
Mao: I'm wriggling back and forth. Oh yeah, at that time Sensei was on the side -
Kumiko: Saying "here, here"
Mao: - telling me what to do. Before, it was kinda like this, I was only watching Sensei.

Announcer: What do you think? Watching a video of yourself when you were young?
Mao: It's embarrassing, but also really interesting.
Announcer: Kumiko-san, what do you think, watching the video of Mao?
Kumiko: I think it's extremely cute, but it's probably better if I don't say anything about the ballet parts, don't you think, Mao?

Kumiko: Please realize your dreams, Mao.
Mao: Yes, I will try my best.
Kumiko: Because it's everyone's dream too. Try your best. [Good luck.]

Narrator: Kumiko Ochi, who was blessed with natural talent from when she was a little girl 30 years ago, has been blessed with teachers, a husband, a child, and students, and in the past and in the present, she continues to shine.

Many Hearts
**********
Did anyone else think it was weird that Mao was just sitting there by herself, so still and upright (her posture is so good!)? Suspect If it were me, I'd probably be slouching and fidgeting until someone walked in. Sweatdrop

I don't get the timeline of the video though - it seems that Kumiko went during the day to watch Mao, and then met her later that night? But
why does she say "good morning"? confused

At any rate, such a cute video!! Many Hearts

Ok, the dog has a long name, so I'm calling it "Yellow." :albino:

0:13
Mao and Mai: Please come and see us!

Mao: Everyone watching "The yellow puppy of happiness" - good afternoon, I am Mao Asada.
Yellow: "The one who is sending us happiness is Mao Asada-chan"
Yellow: "Mao-chan is now a college student."

Yellow: What are your happy moments?
Mao: Shopping! Cute clothes, cool clothes - I look at all kinds of clothes, I like buying lots of things that made me think, 'this is good.'
Yellow: Where do you buy them?
Mao: In Sakae [downtown Nagoya].

1:15
Yellow: By the way, what is your impression of me?
Mao: A cat, or a dog, or a fox - I have no idea what it is!
Yellow: But you said the title of the show earlier!! [cry]
Mao: Ah! Puppy, isn't it!!
Announcer: [in background] Now you realized it?
Mao: [?? couldn't understand what she said]

Yellow: Thanks goodness! She got it.
Mao: Sorry!

********
That last part was pretty hilarious! ROTFLMAO

They always talk about Taka-chan having his "airhead" moments, but Mao does have them too! Razz

************
Here's yet ANOTHER (yep, ANOTHER! WOW!) vid from that same day:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDIZAab1328

Mao pretty much the usual stuff - she wants to work hard everyday, and not get injured, and not get injured (she said that a couple of times), and relax at the Olympics and approach it with an excited feeling.

I might translate more fully later...but feeling tired now... Sweatdrop

I saw Mao today in Moscow and no bangs!
I guess for training she prefers her old hairstyle. Her hair was
shorter, but she had the ponytail as usual. :-)

I saw that too! But I don't understand how Mao could not have bangs - unless she pinned them up/gelled them back...confused

she must had pinned them back. Many skaters do so to skate! Joannie Rochette used to have a bangs but she always skated without bangs. I used to have a bangs (but it was slighly longer) but I put it back while skating, it's much more confortable Razz

There's a shorter version of the CM and a making-of video on the official website! Very Happy

http://www.itoham.co.jp/corporate/cm/fresh.html

For some reason, it's only going to be on TV for 10 days (5/22-5/31), so see it soon!

In the CM, the dialogue is this:

Mao: Ah!
Music: ~It's a busy morning~
Mao: But!
Mao: If it's Asa-fure [Morning Fresh], it's easy to open!
Music: ~It's a busy morning~
Mao: But!
Mao: If it's Asa-fure, it's easy to be delicious!
Music: ~It's easy! A proper breakfast~
Music: ~Ito Ham Asa no furesshu~
Mao: I'm off!

Mao looks so cute! Many Hearts

In the 'making-of' video, the dialogue goes like this:

Staff: Mao Asada, good morning! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.
[This means something like, 'Please be good to us,' - it's something you typically say when you're working with a client/meet new people.]

Man: You look cheerful.
Mao: Yes, uhh, I ate breakfast before I came, so I'm feeling good.

Mao: Hi, I'm Mao Asada. The new commercial that I'm appearing in for Ito Ham Asa no furesshu has been completed.
Mao: The scene of being busy before leaving, the deliciousness of Asa no furesshu, and the easy-open package were put together in the scene, and it became a very fun commercial.

Man: Mao Asada - your filming is finished for today. Thank you!

Mao: The Ito Ham Asa no Furesshu that cheers me on everyday - everyone, by all means, please try it too. And now, start the commercial!

Long commercial (same as youtube vid)

Mao: Ah!
Music: ~It's a busy morning~
Mao: But!
Mao: If it's Asa-fure [Morning Fresh], it's easy to open!
Music: ~It's a busy morning~
Mao: But!
Mao: If it's Asa-fure, it's easy to make!
Music: ~It's a busy morning~
Mao: But!
Mao: If it's Asa-fure, it's easy to be delicious!
Music: ~It's easy! A proper breakfast~
Music: ~Ito Ham Asa no furesshu~
Mao: I'm off!

****
I think this was filmed pre-haircut? But I'm not sure. confused In that scene where she's getting up, her hair is pretty long.

There's a lot of costumes and hairstyles - this must have taken some time to film!

Anyhow, it's nice to see new footage of Mao! Happy dance

Looks like she's one of the JOC's "symbol athletes" who were selected out of their popularity/marketability/talent and will serve as Japan's "face" of sorts during the Olympic season. Needless to say Mao is perfect for that role! I love you

Looks like Dai is also on the list, which I find both surprising and reassuring as well.

Speaking of JOC, a few days ago there was an article about Mao in a Japanese newspaper:



On the left there's an article about Mao's new CM, on the right - about JOC. There's a photo of Nobu working as a cheerleader Laugh during the JOC camp about 2-3 weeks ago. Laugh
Here's a news clip from that event:
