    Opening
    Five male skaters appeared. And then, eight female skaters appeared, and did layback spin.
    At last, Daisuke, Nobunari and Hanyu appeared, and they became one line and greeted.
    Silent prayer of one minute.
    The Mayor of Toyohashi and the promoter Kozuka greeted.

    Haruka Sakai
    SP of this season. Because it was the first time that she performed in front of a large number of audiences,
    she seemed to be tense a little.

    Shoma Uno
    He is age same as Haruka Sakai, because he is a regular skater of the ice show, he was stately.
    The highlight of his program was Klimkin eagle.
