    Nana Araki and Tomoe Kawabata will be at JGP Courchevel! (Well - provisionally of course.)
    http://www.isuresults.com/events/cat03109474.htm

    Pretty awesome to see two juniors I've enjoyed in the past, although I'm a bit surprised they chose to put them together since I would have thought that they're two of the stronger juniors with a good chance of making the final, especially since they are previously known by the judges...?

    Anyway, super looking forward to the season finally starting!

    So no Ayaka Hosoda...
    I hope that Asian open trophy won't be cancelled. Maybe she can be sent there.

    I hope she'll get assignments later in the season. Japanese fed should give her a chance

    It was announced Mai cancelled "THE ICE" due to poor health condition. According to this article, she was even practicing 3A in this spring but she has lost physical strength gradually after that and been working on getting it back. She sounds positive though, "Please wait for me, I will definitely recover." I am praying for Mai

    Does this make it any more or less likely that she will get invited to the NHK GS?

    I don't know. I don't see JSF allow a situation where 3 ladies have 1 spot while there can be one with two spots and the other with one spot. Imo the host pick will be between Marin and Yuhana. But everything is possible.

    The JSF camp for junior skaters is currently underway at the ice arena in Chukyo U. This year the special lecturer invited to the camp is Carolina Kostner.
    https://twitter.com/AxelQuadruple/st...869832705?s=20
    Participating Jr skaters include:

    Ladies-
    Yuna Aoki
    Nana Araki
    Mao Iwano
    Chisato URAMATSU
    Tomoe Kawabata
    Mana KAWABE
    Rion Sumiyoshi
    Azusa TANAKA
    Rino MATSUIKE

    Men-
    Yuma Kagiyama
    Shun Sato
    Tatsuya Tsuboi
    Kao Miura
    Sena Miyake

    There are also recommended skaters from Novice A.

    NB: I recall seeing a photo of Carolina with Nana Takeshi(?) a few days ago. I thought Carolina is in Japan for the ice show Hyoen. So now it makes sense that she's been invited by JSF. Usually Lambiel would be invited as the instructor to the camp. But since he's in Hyoen during this time, I guess that's why JSF has to find someone else as the instructor (but it's good that Carolina is at the camp.)

    Tomoe Kawabata switched coaches. She is now coached by Yukina Ota and Yutaka Higuchi.

    Yuna has nothing, but Ayaka was this close to landing a 4T.
    I wouldn't say Yuna has nothing, clearly her 3As and 4Ts attempts are downgrated but her 4S looked rotated for me! And looks beautiful even with the fall, she needs to land it clean but I think she already has the speed and height for that jump, go Yuna!, I hope she try again 3lz-3lo in competition ( I remember saw a video where she lands a 3lz-3t-3lo combination in 2016 so I think she can land the 3lz-3lo in a program) and bring her jumps back this upcoming season without those ur calls. She is getting taller and taller!

    Sr. ladies' result:

    2. Miyabi Oba (FS score 104.00 and FS music to 'Titanic'; source)
    3. Hinano Isobe

    Jr. ladies' result:
    1. Matsuike Rino (winning with FS opening jump 3Lz-3T-2T, FS score: 124.68; source)
    2. Nana Araki (FS score: 118.96; FS music to Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, choreographed by Miki Ando; source)
    3. Hanna Yoshida (FS score: 114.80; landed 3A in FS; source)

    *As this competition is unlisted, there's yet the protocol to be found but only news report.
    Glad to see Hanna Yoshida again with the triple axel!, I hope that she gets two junior grand prix spots, also glad that Nana is getting better scores than last season this early, I hope that soon she will break her personal best scores internationally, and wow Matsuike Rino with a score over 124 with a 3lz-3t-2t combination. Her jumps are amazing as Mako Yamashita ones, I remember see her in a competition not so long ago and wow she has really improved, I don't remember how is her lutz (because the video of that competition was erased) but in general I remember that she has great toe pick and edge jumps and minimal prerotation so I think she has textbook jumps

    Mana Kawabe actually gets the JGP Lake Placid assignment. So that JGP will have more than just one ladies' skater with the potential to jump 3A, which makes the competition interesting.
    I was trying to locate Mana's competition records from last season. But it looks like she only had record with regional competition (Kinki), placing 2nd in Jr. ladies. She WD'ed from the following western sectional so no other record for jr. nationals. It will be interesting to see how she'll do with the competition and skating in general.
