Patina, too???

Remember, Dai off the ice is just such a nice ordinary guy. He has never been assuming nor arrogant.
I had an opportunity to be in his presence for fairly long time when volunteering at Skate Canada 2009.
So I knew he will never bite me.Very Happy Very Happy 

Thank you so much , everybody for the recognition of our rascal works in Detroit. I really appreciate it.
And, I can not wait to see other members of the forum in Tokyo too.
So far. I know.let's talk and Ostile are coming to NHK. Anybody else???

I totally forgot that this forum existed and now I'm soooo glad I found my way back. So much inside info, you'll never get that stuff at Goldenskate. I'm so surprised about what I read here and thankful for the Dai supporters.

Hi!

Thank you so much for your support both for Dai and for all the rascals there! I felt all your cheers so much. I love you 

I’m very thankful that I could be there. Through the gut-wrenching moments, it ended as wonderful, memorable experience. Yes, what an experience! To witness Dai’s great skating, devastating moments of the day of SP, great fight to come back and the warm feelings in the end we all share even with the disappointment.

Looking at the entrance speed into the 4T in the FS, and several beautiful 3As he nailed in the practice before EX and yet having hard time executing it in the program with the fine timing, also reading some articles, such as, yes Mr Nakaniwa’s, (thank you miyu!) and from some other knowledgeable people now it looks like, the jumps are not something he may casually wait to “come back” but they are something he is in the process of newly building up? Scary! Shocked 

Now that he has gained new skating skills, that he can never take it back. It is almost like the fairy tale Red Shoes, you never can take them off. They make his jump beautiful, great air distance, speed and flow going out but they also make it difficult to control to enter and land the jumps, especially with edge jumps. It’s a crazy fight to do in the Olympic year.

The big game is only four months away, he may never have time to get what ideal level he’s trying to reach. The grim battles of Nationals will come even sooner. But I’m sure for one thing. The picture is only getting brighter here. He was in a bad condition in his leg (probably) and in general (definitely). Genki saw blowing his nose so often, right? And whatever pictures I could take he appeared with heavily puffed-up eye lids. These things look temporary. It was great to see Utako sensei telling us, 「これから、もっともっとずっと良くなりますからね。」”It will be getting better and better so much from now on.” I almost burst into tears with joy and thinking how she had been supported him all these years.

The performance of FS and EX..

At the start of the FS it was a bit like Nationals, with desperate calls after calls of “Dai-chan Gamba!!” Very tense. The skater himself was not as free as in JO, looked more determined than relaxed. But the program went on we (the fans) somehow all came back to life, back to breathing and started feeling what he was showing. He had so much to offer, fighting hard and yet showing such warm and loving emotion while flying all through. How could he do that?

The Crisis, OMG, was so beautiful and serene. Simply soul cleansing. Usually in this program he looks a bit detached from the audience, playing with skate alone like a child which I love. This performance he shows his smile, so much warmer. And the gorgeous skating again. That one leg skating from one corner to the other after he missed 3A, I wish they didn't switch the camera, for it was breathtaking. This performance is in the treasure box in my heart.

Again thank you so much for great energy you guys sent to Detroit! cheers

P.S.
Hello and welcome back to Maikitty!

Indeed, He and his team have been doing a crazy thing.Cool
Frankly his incredible talent has been made him challenge many crazy things in his career.
But after watching his FS at SA, I realize he is on track. Even protocols said that, too.
Now,He loads everything-quality of jump,speed,SS etc-to compete with big contender in Sochi.
I think that he just needs more full run-through and practices to combine those things in program. That's all.

Welcome back Twind and thank you for your detailed report! You rascals had quite the experience
in Detroit, ups an downs. So many things going on with our Dai! I am so glad that you and the others could be there to support Dai and his team. I am sure Dai was feeling the love from you all and I am sure that meant so much to him.  

Thank you masy for video after Ex and Thank you ilica for
airport Dai video!

I second that. That's exactly what I felt after reading her report.
