With more time to think and with a cooled-down mind, I think that it's not so taken for granted that Dai will come back immediately in season 2018/2019.  I don't remember the source right now, but somehow I remember an interview where Dai said his job as Interior Designer would last until May 2019.    But reading from his note..... he wants to compete at highest possible level and he now has a brand new FS ready.

We only have to wait the press conference.

Anyway, it's great he wants to be back to competition again!! His love for figure skating has returned powerful, as you can understand from the 3BK interview.

Sorry, no time to post pics one by one.

Take a long breath and let yourself go watching these amazing pics   drunken  I love you  drunken  I love you

Press conference has started.

Kiss & Cry is tweeting Dai's words.

https://twitter.com/TeamKISSandCry

using automatic translation, I can understand Dai said

"I want my skating back. For myself" (Pattina started crying)

Oh my gosh.  I cannot believe Dai is coming back!!!  How incredibly brave.  Ilica and Nobu, it's so nice to see you again.  Pattina and Shyla, as per usual, it's always a pleasure to read your comments.  I am in absolute shock.

I know I mentioned last week, after watching him learning new choreo, that he looked as if he was competing but never in a million years did I actually think he would return.  I still can't believe it but I'm glad he's doing this for himself.

Welcome back, Dai.  I know you will be brilliant!

Dancergirl, you had a premonition!! Very Happy

Jumped in just to say I started a new topic only for news, info, etc about Dai's comeback, so to have all info collected in one place and easier to find.

At present there are only few links, I'll update more this evening when I'm back from work.

Have a Dai-gorgeous MonDai flower

OMG.... still so shocked I posted it in the wrong topic (2017) yesterday  lol!
Now it's in the right place. Apologize!!



Wonderful, wonderful post by eggplant.  She recaps Dai's career for newby (Dancergirl, I soon thought of you, you can find many nice and interesting info!!) and in the end she tries to explain why she loves him and his skating.

Pity it's not so evident, but some words have a slightly different shade of color: they are link to other posts with videos/info/pics as better explanations. The one related to Dai's hair-style is hilarious Laughing Laughing

I mirror myself in her thoughts and feelings I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you  and I'm sure many fans will do the same. Enjoy!!!

Hi Pattina.  Thanks for thinking about me re: Magical Eggplant's musings about Dai.  Believe it or not, I knew about his history by having to play catch-up (after discovering him in Sochi) but I'm so glad I read it because I love Eggplant's colourful style of writing!  Such a beautiful body of work and a huge effort went into the lesson, on all that is Dai, so many thanks for the hard work Eggplant and thanks for sharing the link Pattina.

I've been meaning to ask anyone that can answer. What does 3BK stand for in reference to Dai, Nobu and Taka? Thanks in advance.

Hi Dancergirl💕

3BK comes from 3 baka, meaning 3 idiots/dorks/fools.😅 Just because they were so adorable, funny and just like small kids chasing after those big balloons, people nicknamed them so in a loving way.😂

Hi Nobu.  Thanks so much for the explanation.  When I first read the name I immediately thought of K pop boy bands.  I'm so glad you're here to keep us informed!

Ahhh nobu answered before I got a chance. When I first saw 3BK in reference to Dai, Taka and Oda i thought it meant
3 Brothers Kakkoi. Kakkoi in Japanese means cool or handsome which these three definitely are. Wink

Hi Shyla. I like your version, too. Both versions work for me so I'll go with a combo of both! Thanks for chiming in because the brothers are definitely cool and handsome.

https://cantilovertranslations.tumblr.com/post/175712160043/press-conference-qa-with-daisuke-takahashi-part

So many interesting info!! As usual Dai underestimates himself, anyway I feel he is confident and his desire to compete again is strong, no matter what.

I wish to live my life as a performer on skates, so my goal is to perform to the greatest extent until I reach my limits.  I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you

Some people have waited and hoped for these words for... some time ((( Sad ))) cheers cheers cheers

Great answers from Dai in that press conference.
How I've been missing his honest, down-to-earth, full of self-deprecating humor, but always thoughtful, attitude. Welcome back Daisuke! king  


What a wonderful post by eggplant!!!
(That Yoshitsune stare!  drunken  drunken  drunken  is deadly )  


Nobu, thanks for explanation. I have also wondered what the "k" stands for.
Shyla, your version is more kakkoi  lol!

Wow those were some tough questions and Dai's answers were honest and humble. The interview covered just
about everything to do with his comeback and then some.  How can he think he may lose his long time fans,
no way will that ever happen.

Thanks Pattina for sharing and thanks to translator!

Once a Dai-fan, for ever a Dai-fan.  I love you  I had same feelings, Shyla, where I read the quotes. How on Earth could he even think of that????

While waiting for some news/hints about what he is doing now, we have one more evidence of his big, big heart and love for his mum and family.

In the past months Dai told his fandom he bought his own apartment after living years and years in rented houses and he completely renovated it by himself with the help of an architect.

Now it has been revealed during a tv show that in 2015 he decided to build a new home for his parents as a thank-you gift using all the money he had gained in his career. (I hope he saved enough for his coming back, as we all know figure skating is a very expensive sport. And at the press conference Dai said he has little money to spend as he cannot relay on prize money from international competition). He bought the land and the 200sqm home was built and ended at the end of 2016. It is in moder Western-style, barrier-free with 2 floors and has a large open space where family and friends can reunite.

D-color's update.  Step 8.1  Dai visiting the show-room of tyles manufacturer, to select the right ones for decoration

http://www.d-color.tokyo/posts/4524383

Pics were taken on 06/03/2018. Looking at recent pics from Courchevel and the press conference we can see that his face - always Dai-gorgeous -  was a bit fleshier than now. He has regained his competitive body shape very quickly!!

Reading again the post about the house he bought (and seemingly helped to design), I  I love you when his mum says that the happiest thing is that now Dai is more at home with her and family, as they have room for all.

EDIT

Young Russian skater Anastasia Gulyakova has posted via Instastory some memories of her training camp in Courchevel. This is the moment when she and Dai were getting ready for the pic they had together. (is the man Mishin?)

Just when I think I can't love Dai any more he does something else that is spectacular.   I can't believe he bought the land, consulted an architect (this is so Dai) and built a house for his parents.  That is so amazing and such an incredible gift!  I'm so glad he's able to visit his family more often.

What a touching story about the house Dai built for his parents. It warms my heart. I love you

Pattina I saw that photo of Dai with the young skater on Twitter and was wondering if that was
Mishin. It looks like him but I can't be sure.
