The bond between Yuzuru and Shoma

Hero’s Special 170402

So, as opposed to the usual media angle of Shoma vs Yuzu, Hero’s has decided to put together a program about their relationship, as seen from behind the scenes footage. Most of the articles/reports are now focusing on the relationship between Yuzu and Shoma instead of the previous angle of rivals, because this time they had the shared role of Japan’s representatives as opposed to being individual skaters.

Shoma: Right now, when I’m practicing, my motivation is the desire to achieve the ability to win over Yuzu-kun. That’s the only motivation and, in order to continue growing, I would like to continue forward without changing this feeling.

Yuzu: I’ve often been told that I’m in a position of being chased by others but, if you think about it, just like how we found out with this SP, there are still many people I have to chase after. After all, after the SP the one who was standing in first place was Javier, and the one who was third was Patrick. Of course, the young skater Uno…Uno-san…U-Uno-san? *frowns at himself and laughs* Uno-senshuu** too (was in the top 3). There are many things that I don’t have, so in a manner of speaking, everything is to me, something/someone to chase after.  

In which we get a behind the scenes look at the bond between Yuzu and Shoma (as viewed by the Japanese media)

[004] Hanyu, Y.

“Skating is something that heavily depends on how you’re feeling and there’ll definitely be times when you feel like you absolutely hate it. When you do it well, it’s the greatest feeling in the world and when you don’t, it’s the single most frustrating thing ever and you start to think that maybe you don’t like it as much anymore. But you’ll always have the people who’d stand by you no matter what. When things don’t go your way, these are the people, people like your parents, or others around you like your coach, who’d tell you exactly what you need to hear (even if it’s not necessarily what you want to hear) and they’d be doing it because they know you can do better, so it’d be wise to listen. 

And as you grow older, you may find yourself going through rebellious phases and getting angry quite a lot, and you’d maybe think that all these people around you should just mind their own business and leave you alone, and that’s natural. But it’d be awesome if you could grow up to become someone who is able to understand where they’re coming from and cherish all the support that’s selflessly being given to you.”  

-Yuzuru HANYU, at the ISU World Championship 2014 Small Medal Ceremony, answering an 8 year-old skater’s question about what they (the skaters on stage) feel is most important to them when it comes to skating

(Note: He answered it after Tatsuki and Javi cos he wasn’t prepared to give one only to find out that he’d basically skipped his turn. I think they somehow let him say his piece later, though, cos he was looking really sulky and isn’t it a good thing that they did?)

Video of some cute moments at small medal ceremony, Worlds 2017.

2 things to note:

-After taking a photo, Yuzu said, “It’s not a selfie!”  (which is what Misha said for him on IG) ^^

-He told Boyang, “Tian Tian, jia you!” (天天,加油)  Tian Tian is Boyang’s nickname (Chinese fans call him that) and “jia you” is like ‘ganbatte’ in Chinese. Boyang was so amused, haha!   (he also said ‘jia you’ to Boyang at NHK Trophy 2015.) :))))

Oh Yuzu, why are you so cute and funny….

Fun Facts from Men’s FS Small Medals Ceremony

1. Shoma and Keiji played games together and left Yuzu (jk)
2. Boyang Jin had instant noodles after his performance
3. Yuzu gets confused and passes the mic to his kouhai like a bad senpai (jk again)
4. Shoma likes anime, like Kimi no Na Wa (but his favorite anime is too embarassing to say out loud)
5. Boyang Jin listens to I love China right before his performances LOL very patriotic
6. Yuzu is late to game trends and gets left behind by Shoma and Keiji (jk again haha)
