Here I am, back-to-back posting again... Sweatdrop

I got the other Mao photobook (the one with young Mao on the cover) and the Sports Graphic NUMBER magazine with Mao on the cover from the bookstore today! Very Happy

In the photobook, there are messages from Tatiana to Mao during the 2008-09 season, and at the end, there are long messages from Midori Ito and Philippe Candeloro. I might try to translate later, but one of the important things Midori said is that when she went to the Olympics for the first time, she really enjoyed the experience, she had fun, and she was able to give a good performance. (The next time she felt a lot of pressure.)

In the Sports Graphic NUMBER, there's a long piece by Naoko Utsunomiya, the woman who writes the Mao Asada books. In that piece, she interviews Mao, and Mao says something like, "it's my first time going to the Olympics, so I want to face it the same way I did when I went to my first Grand Prix Final--with an excited feeling." So basically, it sounds like she's going to try to do exactly what Midori Ito suggested. Yep!

And I'm thinking that I can guess the title of the next Mao book: "Mao Asada, GOLDEN Nineteen"! Thumbs up!

Thank you so much for posting this piece! That's an awesome attitude!!! And now that I think about it, Mao does seem really successful at her "firsts". She won her first GPF, had amazing performances at her first worlds and nearly won, and won her first 4CC (2008?).
I think you might have just accurately predicted the next Mao book Confetti

Mao, fight hard! but play even harder! Happy dance

Anyone heard the news that Mao will use the dark blue dress she used in 2009 4cc for Clair De Lune?

Never mind, it's just a rumor-_-

I'm actually hoping she'll keep the red and black dress. It just seems like it's become part of the whole 'Bells' performance Smile.

Mai:How was it (competition)?
Mao:It finished. It was good.
Mai:Did you feel nervous?
Mao:No.
Mai:Not at all?
Mao:Uhh, so-so..
Mai:Are you disappointed about SP?
Mao:Uhhh,but...now I'm surrounded by cameras, so I'm hesitating to talk..let's talk again at Nagoya.
Mai:Did you feel good today?
Mao:Yeah.
Mai:Your face looked powerful at straight line steps.
Mao:Really?
Mai:You were getting into it.
Mao:It was good. See you later at Nagoya.
Mai:Did you eat Korean BBQ?
Mao:Not yet. We are going to have it from now. Well,bye-bye.

Mai blushed for shame because she didn't know Mao was in that situation. ROTFLMAO And Korean BBQ again! Laughing

Thanks for the link, kirakira!
I translate some remarkable points.

Like a Star @ heaven "When I became her trainer, she was the World Champion. So I had thought how great athlete she was. But except for flexibility, her result of measurement was different from which I expected."
Like a Star @ heaven "But what I felt first was that she was so quick to master. Not only mastered new exercises, but also achieved our aims of training. I make a training plan through a year, but she carries them out one after another, so I have to rework it."
Like a Star @ heaven "Her physical balance was not good, like other many figure skaters- always turn right, land with right foot- it had effected physically. But through many training and exercises, she got to handle her body well. For example, got not to step out, and became stable on approaching to jumps. She seems to feel it, so I think that's good."
Like a Star @ heaven Mao says, she feel her lower back became strong, the lower back pain has disappeared. And her left leg became as strong as right leg.

About Mao,he says
Like a Star @ heaven "In usual, she is an ordinary girl...she likes to eat and go shopping. But once stepping on the link, she looks firm, sometimes creates an atmosphere which we can't talk to. She has an aura of the top athlete."

When he talks about usual Mao, he smiles Smile He is like an older brother of Mao. I hope they will smile and cry with joy on 26th.Cheering

Thank you Genie for the link ! WOW the gilf from Arakawa(via GANA Chocolate) is a skating boot made of chocolate! Mao bites the front part of the edge and says ' the edge should look like this' ! lol! How cute !

I hope Mao got a lot of advices from Arakawa. Daisuke said he listened to music right before going onto the ice, just like Arakawa did and it helped him relaxed. He was listening to BEYONCE by the way. Very Happy

Can someone offer a translation for this video? And especially the part when she is crying? Sorry if this request was made previously, I don't really have the time to look back at 50 pages of posts
