What the fuck guys??? I have never been embarrassed to be in a fandom ever but this. This is ridiculous. It is disrespectful. Changing the music of his programs to satisfy yourself was borderline disrespect but this is the cream of the crop. How is this acceptable? I get that it’s for shits and giggles but this is taking it way too far.
There is nothing similar between Yuuri and Yuzuru other than they are Japanese, wear glasses, have black hair, are figure skaters, look up to a Russian skater.
Yuzuru has less than 5% body fat and he doesn’t get fat. Ever. His career is similar to Victor’s rather than Yuuri’s. He is 2014 Olympic gold medalist, winner of the Grand Prix Final 4 times in a row which no one has ever done before, he is a former world champion and was the silver medalist twice, and the bronze medalist the first time he competed in the world championships. He is currently ranked no 1 in the world. He has set at least 10 world records. He is the first person to ever land a Quad Loop in competition. He has never gotten fat, he has never had a sixth place finish in the GPF, he doesn’t have a dog, he’s not shy, in fact he’s a little shit that often does the opposite of what his coach recommends. He likes dancing to music and has an obsession with headphones. He also has never had a slump in his career. Ever.
His coach is Brian Orser, two time Olympic silver medalist in the 80s and a man so good at doing Triple Axels he was dubbed ‘Mr Triple Axel’ by the skating community. He has coached Yuna Kim to Olympic gold in 2010, Javier Fernandez to World Champion twice, of course Yuzuru and all his accomplishments. Tracey Wilson is a triple bronze world champion in ice dance, and is also a bronze medalist in the Olympics. She is co-coaching with Orser in the Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club.
The fact that you have replaced the name of such respected figures in the skating community with a fictional skater worsens the situation by 1000%.
This has to stop. Replacing identity and coach of an athlete to something that is fictional??? What a ridiculous and disrespectful fandom we have here.
See the doggie tissue box behind Victor? Doesn’t it look familiar?
Victor’s poodle tissue box was inspired by Yuzuru Hanyu’s Pooh Tissue Box!
For those of you who don’t know the backstory on this beautiful tissue box: Figure skater Yuzuru Hanyu always had a miniature pooh bear along with his tissue boxes during his junior days, 2009-2010 season. Then a simple pooh cover with tissues coming out of his nose was introduced in the 2010-2011 season. Then finally, the Pooh tissue box was born in the 2011-2012 season and they have been inseparable ever since. Most of the times, Pooh is seen beside Yuzuru’s coach cheering him on in every competition outside the rink. Funny fact to go along with it, when Yuzu moved to Toronto, his coach Brian Orser stated in an interview, that when he saw Yuzuru, he said, “I always thought he was that weird kid with the Winnie the pooh doll. Now I’m that kid’s coach…and I have to carry it.”
Yuzuru teased his coach with the expression “I know, I know, I know!” when Brian told him to just skate around and not jump anymore. What I love about Yuzuru is that his face is so animated, you can tell his feelings right away.
Our boy is a little devil, poor his coach. Brian looks like: “KID!! UGHH! I am done!” The gif is from @eggplantgifs
Because Brian Orser said, eventhough their personality and cultural background are like south and north pole,totally different, but they respect and support each other.
Yuzuru makes Javier more diligent in training and fired up for striving to be the best.
And Javier makes Yuzuru more relax and takes thing with calm head.
This mini-documentary is so touching, so inspiring, and so emotional. There’s also Brian’s experiences and his story is just so….I can’t speak, I’m speechless….because the more you know…..-done-
These are the trials of an World Champion.
Javi is such a kind man. He is charismatic. There is a reason why he is just as beloved as the other top contenders.
He’s gonna be a great coach someday.
Please watch it if you have time.
Bonus: Yuzuru is also interviewed and he talks about Javi and how Javi has helped him out, and you get to see the two train/practice side-by-side.
I don’t think people will be able to say that Yuzu and Javi are just competitors because they really are great rink mates and friends. And I’m happy that they’re both humble and open-minded to become such friends.
This is truly one of the best insights I have had into their friendship. And I’m so so glad that Brian, Yuzu, Javi, Tracy, and everyone else in TCC, who has help the skaters out have been so supportive and worked to create such an amazing environment.
Stop Changing Hanyu Yuzuru's Wikipedia Page Please
Really, can people stop changing Hanyu Yuzuru’s wikipedia page? This is getting really out of hand.
He is NOT Katsuki Yuuri. Do NOT change his name.
His coach is Brian Orser, NOT Viktor. Do NOT change his coach.
He is a human being, don’t conflate and lump him with an anime character. He has his own unique experiences, personality, strengths, flaws and we should not over look those. Appreciate him for who he is.
Show some respect to Hanyu Yuzuru and Brian Orser. Put yourself in their shoes. Think about the consequences of your actions. These acts are disturbing and disrespectful. Do not do what you do not wish to be done to you.
