“I have so much admiration for Michael Christian Martinez. Coming from the Philippines, from a poor family, doing the olympics at sixteen, and now 14th in 4cc! I wonder how he even got his country sports federation’s attention, or if there were kids who could compete against him when he was younger in his country. He really has to be amazingly talented and determined to achieve what he did”
Okay, so I wanted to know what the year in Yuri on Ice is. It felt like everyone is just assuming that it would be the current 16/17 season, but while we got several information on the month, we never got the year.
And as it turns out, it’s not 2016.
In the first episode we saw the results of Yuuri’s last Grand Prix Final.
Notice the logo at the top of the results?
It looks like the one from the GPF 2012 in Sochi, only
Then, in the latest episode we got another small explanation/recap how the Grand Prix Series works. And we get this logo of the current season:
And this is the logo of the GPF 2013:
Which doesn’t just look like the one in Yuri on Ice, it is the same exact one.
So, Yuri on Ice seems to be set during the 2013/2014 season. It also matches the order of the Cups. The events are not always in the same order, but in 2013 it was this:
2013 Skate America: October
2013 Cup of China: November
2013 NHK Trophy: November
2013 Trophée de France: November
2013 Rostelecom Cup: November
I guess we could safely assume that this is the time frame for the Cups in the anime too. We didn’t get the date of the Cup of China in the anime, but this means, episode 6 is happening in the beginning of November.
(Edit: Thank you @lazuliblade for the reblog with all the added information. Everyone, check out this reblog for more timeline tidbits.)
Here’s different ways that Tessa has worn the braid hairstyle. She’s styling it in a ponytail for the 2013 GPF and for the Prince short dance, in a half updo for the 2013 part of Seasons and also in a bun.
-2007/2008 Dare you to move exhibition (I really love the back design of this one)
- 2012/2013 And the waltz goes on sd (for one performance I think)
My original plan was to let this blog die. I had gotten more & more busy and, combined with the fact that they stopped competing after Sochi and updates got fewer and father between, the blog slowed down.
But recently I was looking though the end of the 2013-2014 season and reminiscing about that season. I realized it was really nice for me to have a curated place I could look back on and see what and how I felt as it happened live. Also I re-discovered things I had since forgotten in the intervening years.
So I guess this means that after about 2 years away, I’m coming out of hiatus (but this time it’s for me). Oh also the username has changed cause the old one was absolutely awful.
Määttä was born on August 22nd, 1994, in Jyväskylä, FInland. He started playing hockey in 2000, after insisting that all of his peers were playing.
Määttä has represented Finland in the IIHF World Juniors championships from 2011 to 2013, serving as an alternate captain at times. In 2014, he was invited to represent Finland in Sochi, Russia, for the Winter Olympics. He scored the final goal in a 5-0 victory over the United States in the bronze medal game.
Since joining the Penguins for the 2013-2014 season, Määttä has recorded 14 goals and 36 assists. Three of his goals came from power plays and one of his goals was short-handed. Two of his goals are also game winning goals.
So far, Määttä has appeared in 135 NHL games and has recorded 32 total penalty minutes in his career with the Penguins.
Some fun facts about Määttä (according to interviews/articles):
-his favorite book is the English Dictionary
-he’s a fan of the following foods: mushroom soup, lasagna, licorice, and Swedish berries (candy)
-he collected/traded hockey cards as a kid
-he admitted to crying during the Pokemon movie (no shame)
-his least favorite subject in school was Swedish
-HE BEAT CANCER. And remained calm at all times during the process of getting his tumor removed!
Olli Määttä is an absolute BEAST and we are so lucky to have him on our team!
“It makes me hopeful to see the general (non-skating!) public’s positive comments about the Shibs’ short dance at U.S. Nationals. I didn’t see a single comment about how their music wasn’t right or eww a sibling team. Most people (both young AND old) seemed overwhelmingly positive, amazed, and inspired. Many really liked the combination of Jay-Z and Sinatra! I am hoping this bodes well for our American ice dance teams in Pyeongchang. They’re been overlooked for so long even after D/W’s win!”
Kamil Stoch was interviewed during the second competition in Planica, 18.3.2016, by a Slovenian radio about Peter Prevc:
Interviewer: Here we have double olympic gold champion with us, Kamil Stoch! Kamil, especially here in Planica, Peter’s support of his fans is most obvious, we would like to know what you think about the man himself and this season?
Kamil: Well Peter is just phenomenal, even a blind man could see that. To be honest, even in the 2013/2014 season, when I won the overall and he was 100 points behind me, and then especially last season, 2014/2015, when he missed the globe for basically just one point, I was sure this man would be the man to win everything in the seasons to come. And as we can see, I was right (laughs). They used to call him always second, but no one laughs at that now, when he has taken literally every title this season and he absolutely deserved it 100%. He is truly a phenomenal ski jumper and it has always been great to spend time with him and as always I wish him all the best.“
Me: *listens to this on the school bus going home and literally starts crying a pool of tears*
Yuki Kimisawa (Kakashi), Ryuji Sato (Sasuke) and Koudai Matsuoka (Naruto) first teamed up as members of Shitenhoji Tennis Club in the Prince of Tennis Musical - Seigaku vs Shitenhoji Season 2 (Dec. 2013 - March 2014).
The cast of Shitenhoji 2 are the 7th Generation of casts.
The first POT musical premiered in the Golden Week of 2003.
For people who keep asking why I said not to worry because TAWOG doesn’t end til 2020, and then a movie comew. Each season lasts 2, sometimes 3 years.
Season 1 was 2011 - 2012
Season 2 was 2012 - 2013
Season 3 was 2014 - 2015
Season 4 was 2015 - 2016
Season 5 is 2016 and won’t end until 2018.
Season 6 is expected to be from 2019 to 2020. But because of how CN delays when episodes air, it might not end until 2021. And then there might be a movie between the time 2020 - 2025 (Movies can take years to make)
Which is why I say don’t worry for now. It will sadly come to an end, but not right now. Let’s just think about future episodes, because each season has 40 segments and there’s tons of new episodes coming soon.
“GPF men’s competition just showed that no one is a shoe in anymore. The young generation, just as easily as they can splat, can roar back with technical content that only the Big 3 can dream of. It’s either going to make for one amazing men’s Olympic event or Sochi 2.0. Fingers crossed for the first option!”
Tatsuki Machida jump appreciation post (1/3): quadruple toeloop
Before the 2013-2014 season, Tatsuki had only landed 2 clean quads in competition. Between the beginning of the Olympic season and his last competition, the 2014 Japanese National Championships, he has landed a total of 28 clean quads (singles and in a double/triple toe combination).
