As I'm not allowed to participate and can't land lunars anyway, this might be _the_ opportunity to finally practice them. I might need them later :)

I don't, it'll be my first landed one if it happens! I do have an old sticky terra which may do the trick, but even with a super sticky tama, and a light ken (the terra weighs in around 85 grams, which is not that light..), you need unbelievable cushioning ability. My attempts have been feeble at best, although I did get regular j-stick to an inward stilt... getting there!

I think we have have to call upon a new entrant to the endless combo for this one...

I'll wait a bit longer to see if someone lands it, otherwise I'd allow any direction of rotation for it, as long as the ken spins more than 180 degrees.

I'd rather have the combo going than wait for a trick that is harder than I expected.

You should have thought of that before you set it! Didn't you try the trick yourself before you set it? To get the idea if it was feasible? (Genuinely interested.)
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

Actually, I only tried it conceptually, mostly because I suck at lunars.

It looked like that rotation was not that bad, in fact I thought it could be easier than the other way around.

I should add trick conceptualist to my forum tag.

I've tried it just for fun here, and honestly, it's hard enough getting into Inward Lunar from Tama grip just pulling away from the ken and cushioning into it. Very hard work. Trying to flip into it, the added speed makes it a monster. I was pretty surprised to see that it is at all 'do-able'!

Given that I've set up a trick much harder than I thought, let's make it easier.

Somersault to Inward Lunar. Flip can be in any direction as long as the ken rotates more than 180 degrees.

No takers? in the reverse direction it shouldn't be that hard, right?

It's excellent, plus a 1-turn aeroplane by-the-face.

Your turn, what's next?

Merci! The One turn aeroplane is for cup positioning more than anything else (and good practice for the IKO...)

Ok, so next up for endless combo #113:
