I love Mary Poppins and Mao is just simply adorable here. I haven’t seen such happy energy from her for a while and I’m happy that she’s still forging on with a smile on her face. This exhibition is nowhere in the league of her Por una Cabeza or Chopin’s Ballade no. 1 but it’s still entertaining and her double axels are breathtaking. I could just watch them over and over again. Here’s to hoping for a good season for her!

P.S. Who else thinks that if Mao can’t skate singles anymore, she should go into ice dance. I’m sure she and Takahiko together would be better than the Reeds.
