Shyla, I confirm: the man is Mishin. Although Dai was in Courchevel for Richaud, they shared the same rink many hours/day. I know that Mishin is jealous of his students, so maybe he was there to control everything was OK Laughing Laughing Laughing Or maybe, out of his love for perfection, he rushed to help Dai in keeping the "right pose" lol! lol! lol!

Yes, the story of the new house is so heartbreaking. They were not a wealthy family, anyway his parents struggled to let him pursuit his dreams. Oh, and I have read that Dai called his mum to inform her of his comeback few hours before the official announcement on the website.

Let's hope Dai's family and friends (and the Takahashi's new house) had no issues after the heavy rains that caused floods and landslides in many parts of Western Japan in the last days, included Okayama Prefecture and Kurashiki, claiming 155 lives  Crying or Very sad  Crying or Very sad  with buildings and roads destroyed.  

I've found this article of CNN - dated 3 days ago. You can see pictures of houses flooded in Kurashiki and other places.  Kurashiki is dear to all Dai's fans.

It's been a terrible time of late for our Japanese friends: earthquake and now this awful weather.
We, as Dai's fans, are close to Japanese people in this tought time.  I love you

Today's pic by Boomsports: Dai at the Kansai rink on 12 January 2010, during a public practice session before leaving for Vancouver. Automatic translation: although the rink can host only 500 people, they received more than 3.500 requests.

Hi Pattina.  I admire Dai's parents for their perseverance in supporting Dai's dream.  It wasn't easy on the entire family but they worked hard to achieve their goals.  It's such a great success story and so lovely of Dai to repay them with such a heartfelt, tremendous gift.  What a great son but, then again, what great parents and brothers he has.

I certainly hope their house wasn't affected by the flooding.  Thank you for the link.  I think it was overshadowed on our news due to the Thai soccer team's rescue.  I did see Japan's National soccer team sending a message to the Thai boys and their coach. I know it's a bit off topic but I am thrilled they were rescued and are doing well.

I know nothing of Mishin but can't imagine why someone would be jealous of their students.  I suppose there are always egos involved in any sport.

What cute pics of Dai from 2010!

Sorry for the OffTopic. Whenever one of his athletes has ended a competition, Mishin hurries her/him out of K&C and nearby zone. He always keeps away people and journalists, unless it is a scheduled meeting. At Lombardia Trophy 2017, the day after the Ladies' Free, I had the chance to see Carolina in the rink hall, chatting with a woman. There were no journalists or tv crew and - apparently - no one else was in the hall. I grabbed the chance and stopped to greet and congratulate with her. She was very kind and smiling, as usual. Less than 30 seconds and I felt hands on my shoulders and turned around. Mishin was there, gently but firmly pushing me away from Caro!! Laughing

Today's SPOEMON on OHK - the tv service features Dai's comeback with parts of the press-conference and a short interview at Takatsuki Ice Rink (Kansai Uni) with moments of on-ice practice and gym. This kind Japanese fan tweeted it into 2 parts

Have you all a Dai-gorgeous week-end!!!

I'm also about to go off topic again so thank you everyone for your patience.

Pattina, I had no idea that you met Caro.  I'm so happy for you and wasn't surprised that she was so kind!  How rude of Mishin to push you away while you were having a conversation.  It's a shame that he doesn't seem to realize that fans are important to the skaters.  I would imagine the cheers from the audience would help their performance and confidence so he should rethink his strategy (and acquire some  manners).

Yesterday's pic by Boomsports. Same open practice on 12/01/2010. In the comment they recall when asked about one of his rivals Dai made a mistake and called him a "black hole" instead of "dark horse". Laughing Laughing I love you I love you


Source https://twitter.com/boomsports/status/1018121592117682176

Have you seen Kazuki Tomono at Worlds 2018? He was the "last minute" replacement of Yuzuru Hanyu and he surprised everyone with a stunning FS and an unexpected 5th place overall. (3rd FS - I saw him live and OMG what an explosion of power!!! Kazuki really rocked the arena!) So now he is considered the new rising star among Japanese Men. During a recent interview he was asked about Dai's comeback:

How do you feel about Daisuke Takahashi returning to competition?

Tomono: He’s a skater I’ve respected since I was little, but he’s a god-like figure that even now I haven’t caught up to… It’s a great honor that we may be able to compete together in the final group at Japanese Nationals. In order to become a skater who can fight and shine at the top of the world, I must practice with the feeling of overtaking Daisuke Takahashi.


Source https://tomonokazuki.tumblr.com/post/175851120496/interview-with-kazuki-post-doi-from-tv-guides

I love you The great sense of respect Dai is able to raise among younger skaters is one of his many peculiarities. Dai is still the person they look at as icon of figure skating. And it's quite natural that Kazuki's aim is to overtake Dai, as sport is always developing, but Kazuki's wish is full of respect and admiration.

Have a great Dai-Sundai!!!

Brand new: posted by Chai-san one hour ago in his instastories  cheers  cheers

Tbh, I don't understand if it's taken before or after the new hair-cut. I don't see too much difference from hair-style Dai had in practice last week.  Laughing

This is the possible explanation for Dai's visit to Chai-san: according to this tweet by Jack Gallagher Dai is going to Toronto Cricket Club from 16 to 24 July.

Mind!!!: I report it here, although as usual Gallagher does not give links to reliable sources and probably he has heard through the grapevine.

I don't follow him and I haven't seen this retweeted by Japanese fans I follow. It was reported to me just today. So don't trust it until we have more info and (let's hope!!) pics of Dai with David (at TCC or elsewhere)

Pattina This link does not work or has been taken down.

Loving all the "photo of the day" from Boomsport!I love you  

I read that tweet from Gallagher too. Sometimes his sources are spot on sometimes not. I tend to believe
this one though because Dai needs to get his SP as it is mid July already.

Thanks for all the updates Pattina!

Very strange. I tried it right now from your post and it works. Try this one.

The timing is correct, you are right Shyla. As I said, I don't follow him and I did not seen the info retweeted by, for example, Daisuke Takahashi Road to Sochi and/or other twitter Japanese accounts that are usually very very updated and quick in reporting every bit of news about Dai-chan.
Probably the lack of sources made them all cautious in spreading the news.

I'm still on holidays so I have time to update with new Boomsports pic later.

Let's hope to have news of Dai soon! Have you all a great Dai-week!!
