Cowboy Bebop Figure Skating Out Of This World




The National Figure Skating Championships have unsuspectingly served as Canadian figure skater Kevin Reynold’s place to reveal his love for space bounty hunter anime Cowboy Bebop, dedicating an entire performance to the series set to its theme song and apparently demonstrating that not all otaku are jobless NEETs, or stuck indoors.

Reynold’s splendid performance:

Reynold’s acquisition of third place in the competition has however ultimately led to many decrying the judging decision as blasphemy with their suddenly acquired skating expertise.

    if there were more guys who did this i'd consider watching male figure skating instead of jacking off to women's all the time.

    Still doesn't beat those synchroswim ladies using old horror and police flick soundtracks. Like Suspiria or Goblin...

    U.S. synchronized swimming pair at the Olympics a few years back used Liberi Fatali from Final Fantasy 8.

    Took me an embarrassingly long time to realise he was actually cosplaying Spike (loosely at least).

    The kid has talent, but his choreographer needs to be replaced immediately. That set was so low energy compared to the music.

    Was thinking the same thing, either he needed to be more energetic or he should've picked a slower song.

    Definitely. Even I could tell that the trumpet staccato parts at the beginning should have him running on time with the beats, then jump, glide and repeat.

    It's remind me Phillippe canderolo exhibition during the 90's.
    He was famous to make exhibition costumed like rock star, movie or comics character.
    He was also the best french Figure Skater of his time (most of the french teenager girls were fond of him (in japan he was even more)
    It was the golden age of original french figure skating as there was also Surya Bonaly(I was fond of her, she was so beautiful and talentuous)

    3rd place even after eating it like that on that jump is fairly impressive. His timing was a bit off in some places though.

    Lol sankaku. You sound like we all, including you, are indoor jobless and NEET...

    It's normal to like anime and even most non otakus in asia were grown up with animes. Those who watch anime doesnt mean its neet, stuck indoors or something as long you dont spend too much time with it. The same goes for gambling and porn addicts.
    Let them judge what they want... different people are different people anyway.

    From my view point, I actually think the writer of this article is trying to speak up for Otaku and not putting them down. I'm pretty sure they did read some of the comments posted if not all, and we did get lots of haters who even insulted Otaku like they themselves is above others despite visiting this site.

    Not sure if you are new to SanCom but if you did follow most of the news articles featured, you'd realize that there are more haters than genuine fans here. And let's face it, the notion that people who are into things related to anime is often regarded as NEET or Hikikomori (shut-ins) by society both in Japan and the west. This is like how most westerners still thinks of anime as cartoons meant for kids even in modern days where information can be easily obtained via various methods as long as you have internet...and then we still have to deal with SJWs and the likes.

    Meh, looks more like somebody pasted the sound track in the back ground. The choregraphy is bad, and it would have been better with more swing and jazz dancing. No homo.

    Current judging system scores higher for technical elements over stylistic elements. Especially for short programs. If this were ice dancing, you'd be correct.

    How come he's demonstrating that Otaku aren't stuck indoors? THIS IS AN INDOOR SPORT!
    Otaku do get out, you know? It might be only to Akihabara and to watch an idol-pop live, it doesn't matter, the fact is they do get out; the ones who don't are the hikikomori.

    I assume the writer isn't familiar with the term "shut-ins" which is known as Hikikomori in Japan. This article has some typos and it actually says - "otaku are jobless NEETs, OR stuck indoors."

    I know this is attributed to bad choice of words on the writer's part but hopes this clear up any misunderstanding. Blame it on the masses for generalizing all Otaku(s) as NEET or shut-ins instead. :/
