Gamushara Natsu Matsuri's still going on, and team RA was against SHA today, and they won two matches out of three! :3 I'm happy, it was kinda regrettable that they lost all against GA the other day. And apparently their performance today, especially during the very last show, was great, they had added some new tricks there on their own (and without asking their sensei... XD) I so wish we could see the performance on gamushara! ;;
ALSO, they talked about these matching yellow good-luck bracelets
they've been wearing on the shows, which turned out to be made by Taiga. That all was just so cute that I decided to translate the tidbits about it here, since twitter's incovenient with the character limit.
I collected the whole story from various users' tweets, so this is all based on their preceptions of course.
When Juri started talking about the bracelets and told that Taiga had made them for everyone, Taiga was all embarrassed and like "stop iiit!".
After one practice, Taiga had suddenly said "can you come here for a second?" and at first Juri had thought that Taiga would tell them he wants to give up the double dutch or something. But, while looking a bit shy, Taiga had taken the bracelets from his pocket and been like "Here, I made these...". He'd made one for each member and their sensei. During the show, Taiga was all modest and like "they're quite messy". But the whole team was showing their bracelets all happily.
....I just. Aww. TAIGA ♥
Then, the new tricks they did today!
Shoki (+ Shin?) did this thing called ロンダート, idk what it is in english. It looks like something between a somersault and a backflip? He did that while the others were turning the rope(s).
Shintaro did his usual 台宙 / flip/somersault from the high platform and apparently he timed the jump so that he landed perfectly within the turning ropes?? IDK if I got it right, and orz I can't explain it, let's hope we'll see this on the show eventually! 8D But it sounds super cool and apparently everyone were really amazed by it. And right after Shin had done it, Hokuto came and hugged him tightly and they all looked really happy <3
Also, apparently their sensei had said Shintaro's trick is too risky and hadn't given them a permission to do it. Even still, Shin had practiced and polished it and waited for a good moment to show it to everyone. Today, their sensei was absent and even the staff-san had tried to stop them from doing it but. So much for that! XD
Juri also cleared his speed step all proudly!
Tomorrow are their final two matches against MU. >_< Crossing fingers for as great performances as they did today!
Can't wait to finally see
their performance on Gamushara after reading dozens and dozens of tweets about them. ;_;
