Look, Pooh Bears!!

This photo from the time Yuzuru received the best score in the history of men's short program in Winter Olympics history became viral not only for the record but also for the visual reaction of his coach, Yoshiko Kobayashi.

Also inevitable.

Yuzuru opening the Japanese sliding panel and then artistically closing it. I personally think these are the best takes on the meme.

 Ice No Prince Sama - A Jump That Is Better Than A Kiss -

Because of Yuzuru's many prince-like qualities, this was also inevitable.

Believe that he is an idol now.




Many fans hope Yuzuru cosplays Shinji Ikari from Neon Genesis Evangelion and this image of Yuzuru as Shinji created by an unknown fan became viral on Twitter.

Some fans agree that he also reminds them of Hakutaku from Hozuki No Reitetsu.



No Japanese character fascination is complete without latte art.
