Thanks Shyla for the video!

Dai's FS is AMAZING † drunkendrunkendrunken †† I love youI love youI love youI love youI love you

I was sad going to sleep knowing the results and not seeing any video, but in the morning Shyla's link improved my mood very much. Yes, like you, I don't care about jumps, they will come, or not, but Dai's artistry is forever.

Go Daisuke!!! †bouncebounce †Next time will be much much easier!

Pattina, you have answered my avatar challenge very well indeed. Beautiful picture †drunken drunken drunken

Tv service with some "off-ice" moments and practice with falls.

https://youtu.be/5bqaq1Q8H-0

Full broadcast!!! about one hour of video. SP, FS, interview, backstage etc....
Hurry up and enjoy till it's still available!!!

Wonderful pics from Free Skating

Of course I agree with you, Shyla and ilica. Jumps become less relevant, when the skater is Dai, a master of artistry. He falls and lands two footed jumps but he immediately recover the flow of his skating, the lines, the elegance in moves, he is always skating on music, he doesn't lose any single beat of rhythm.
He really is a Master of the ice. I love you I love you I love you

Hi Pattina, Shyla †and Ilica. †Iím so sorry Iíve been absent but life got in my way. †It was a crazy busy summer for me and one of my close relatives was in the hospital for half of the summer. †It seemed like she just got home when another close relative went into the hospital and, unfortunately, her illness is incurable. † This is why Iíve been away from the forum for so long.

I just got some really sad news today and it suddenly occurred to me that I missed Daiís competition so I logged on. †As always, Dai was able to mesmerize me and took me away to another place for a short while.

I was so proud to see that he came in first for the SP. †He had some issues with the FS but I know as he continues to train it will only get better and better. †He did incredibly well considering heís been away for 4 years and there still isnít anyone that can match his artistry. †I love seeing the way he moves his head to the music and the choreo looked quite difficult so kudos to him for working his magic with the blades. †I also loved his wardrobe.

Iím very grateful to Dai for bringing his creativity back to us (and helping me escape for a few moments) and Iím also grateful to Pattina and Shyla for keeping the forum alive. †Thanks for all you do, ladies, and Iíll be back when I can. †I promise I wonít completely disappear.

Hi Dancergirl. So glad you decided to join and write your comment, while having so many personal troubles.

My prayers for you and family.

I'm in a hurry: leaving for airport. I'll be attending a business meeting from today till Friday. And as it is organized by Company's French Branch, after meeting I'll stay for the week-end in Paris and my husband will reach me!!

So I'll stay away for about a week.

Articles with pics. So many Japanese media are praising Dai's comeback!! Although the FS was messy, his powerful magic has grabbed attention and nice comments.

Thanks for all the updates Pattina! Dai has so many admirers! He is not only a great skater and artist
but such a nice, sweet, humble person who genuinely cares for others.

Have a safe trip and enjoy yourself with your husband after the business part is over.
Paris is so romantic!

Hi Pattina and Shyla. †Thank so very much for your very kind words. †I'm still in a state of shock but wanted to drop by to thank you both for your loveliness. †It's much appreciated and I'm still blown away by Dai's programs. †I love his SP and look forward to seeing his fine-tuning of the FS. †It will be jaw dropping by the time he's done. †

I sent you both a PM so you will see how grateful I am to Dai for allowing me that short escape while I was enthralled with his new programs. †His movement is so out of this world that it took my breath away. †Despite the jumps in the FS I didn't log on to see jumps. †It's the magical movement that only Dai has on blades and he could do 20 quads but that wouldn't touch me the way his artistry does so he did his job for us. †I just wish he knew how grateful I am for taking my mind off my troubles for those few moments.

Thanks again for all you do for all of us! †It may not feel like it but there are many of us that are so appreciative that you've kept the forum going. †Hopefully, I will see you soon in the future. †Hi Ilica. †Keep posting because i love reading your posts, too!

Hello forum!

Main news of the last 2 days was a video posted on twitter by Benoit Richaud who has spent a few days at Kansai working with Dai with obvious great results.
Look how he flies on the new ch.sq and the spin looks great as well.
What happened to the 3F?

https://twitter.com/Benoitrichaud/status/1050390449393790976?s=19


Today on Fuji Figure Skating TV aire a special about summer camps.
Here's the part on Utako sensei's camp in †Hokkaido with Dai.
We see the wonderful state he was in before the injury: great 3A's, 3a2T2T, †various 3-3 and 4S.
We see the moment of the injury and then we see him resuming trainig at Kansai ring.

Funny tidbid: at the beginnig goofy Dai carries Utako sensei's luggage and spills some coffee over it.
"I'll get scolded" he say

Enjoy!
https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6veact

Oh, one more thing
This was posted by KISS&CRY special Issue on Dai released on 10/26

Thanks ostile!!! Great to see you posting here!

You've saved us, Pattina left us in charge of the forum, and I'm afraid we're not doing very good job... †Embarassed
My excuse is that I was crazy busy this week, and when I had a few moments of spare time, all I could do was to stare thoughtlessly at "Fire on Ice"... and then became even more thoughtless... †
The new choreo sq and the spin look so wonderful! I have to admit though, that I'm a little sad that the last flip is gone, that was such great moment in the program. But of course I understand there were reasons for the change, and I'm sure the program is going to be even better. Can't wait to see it! †

Dancergirl, my thoughts are with you, thanks for sharing with us.

Welcome back Pattina! I hope your business trip went well and you had lots of fun on your
mini vacation!

Oh boy a trip down memory lane with Dai on the podium at SA with Evan and Brian. I have missed not only Dai but the other guys that skated with him in that era. I believe that time was special so many talented and diverse men. Not so much now. I think it is the inclusion of all the quads which take away from the quality of the skating and artistry of the programs.

Now we can enjoy Dai's special magic again even if its only for a short while.

Thanks for all the updates.

Hi everyone!!

Thanks, Shyla. Yes, both business trip and mini vacation went both very well. My husband and I were so lucky having wonderful weather in Paris.

Just look at the start of PGG taken from different points of view: the way Dai moves his right shoulder, than arms and body to take the first move. His body-lines!!! (seems that nowadays too few Men take care of good lines and good body postures)

https://twitter.com/purplearashi/status/1052050270580953088

Brief article by Nikkei with Dai's quotes - nothing new but with a pic from PGG. And any pic of Dai is always welcome!!! Very Happy Very Happy

https://www.nikkei.com/article/DGXMZO36623680Y8A011C1US0000/

Very nice pool about Dai's programs!! You are asked to choose between two of them and create your own list of favorite program/s. Luckily, options include also "both" because otherwise sometimes it was impossible for me to take a decision Laughing Laughing (althouhg the link in the tweet says "not found", click on it. it worked for me).

TSL's interview with Benoit Richaud. Very, very interesting. He talks about many aspects of his work as choreographer, he talks about his skaters and, of course, he talks about Daisuke (twice) while they show some moments of PGG.

Starting at about 42:00 TSL asks Benoit about his peculiar use of arms and circular moves and Benoit uses Dai as example.

Later at about 55:00 they go deeper into their work relationship for PGG. You will learn many interesting things. Dai jumped quads when they met first in June and, although his tecnique was already great when he competed, Benoit was surprised to see how much Dai had improved. And then.... the injury Sad Sad and Dai is still not completely good, he still has pain.
Benoit says also that Dai has fire within, he is back not for being on tv or on podium, he is back because he wants to skate (something we already know, but it's wonderful to hear it from his choreographer) . Benoit was at Kinki rink and after the competition they met. Dai was sorry because he did "a disaster".

NHK is celebrating the 40th anniversary of NHK Trophy. In this webpage they have collected video of interviews with skaters taking part in this project (they will air interview I think during the tv special "Legends on Ice"). Unfortunately videos are geo-blocked in Italy Sad

https://www.nhk.or.jp/figure40/legend/skater.html

Luckily we have some hints from dear friend Nobu san: asked about what would he like to do if he had a chance to take part in this very special anniversary competition Dai replied......

https://twitter.com/nobumamiya/status/1055766304714412032


And, of course, his fandom started to dream Laughing Laughing

Thanks for updates Pattina. In Dai's message he sounds confident that he will do better at this competition which must mean his injury is under control. That makes me feel a lot better. I just know he will be fabulous!
