    Fantastic news. I'm hoping this means better choreography and better costumes too.

    ETA: Ha, I already see so many negative comments on Twitter because of this. Hard for many Japanese to accept Orser as a good guy after "demonizing" him for so many years. Well, when he gives them their first Olympic gold in figure skating, they'll make him honorary citizen of Tokyo.

    Hasn't he always been training in Japan? This sounds like a huge change. He and Fernandez are going to have a ball with those quads.

    He'll still go to school in Sendai, so I hope he won't wear himself out traveling back and forth to Toronto.

    I don't get what you mean at all. And we already have Shizuka's OGM in figure skating.

    I am guessing he means many Japanese fans don't like him because he helped Kim win the gold over Asada in 2010.

    Men's figure skating. Sorry, the "men" was omitted.

    And I guess you must have missed all the Yuna/Orser bashing. Consider yourself lucky.

    I bet you Brian made sure a proper financial contract was drawn up before accepting Yuzuru!

    There are 126 million Japanese. By many, how "many" do you mean? Basing your statement on a few trolls on Twitter doesn't really cut it, in my opinion.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    That only means that you might want to reconsider who you follow on Twitter.

    Only negative comments about Orser on my Timeline today are about Fernandez's suspenders.

    I wouldn't call Japanese figure skating fans voicing their opinions on Twitter trolls. I think they are all entitled to their opinion. I was just looking at the tweets that popped up right after the announcement was made this morning.

    I'm very happy with those I follow on Twitter, so I do not want to reconsider, at all. And there weren't that many I follow who commented about the coaching change. The tweets I read were based on a search. Lots of opinions - both positive and negative to the news.

    If they are harbouring grudges against the former coach of a skater they don't like then yes they are. And probably mentally unbalanced too.

    Prince Ice World (PIW) shows just kicked off in Japan,
    and Daisuke and Kanako skated new exhibition programs.

    To have an idea, Daisuke's new exhibition program (Snoop Dogg) looks like this
    (I guess the slo-motion is intentionally done to show his movements well):

    Oh, and his new hair-do!

    ^Thanks for the clip, loved it!

    Kenji did the choreography for this exhibition quite a departure from the Crisis.

    Thanks! Are there enough videos or photos to start a separate thread in GSD for the Prince Ice World shows? I Googled and found these photos from the April 27 PIW show in Kanagawa: http://nipponnews.photoshelter.com/g...000IMw9xQyr3XQ

    Miki Ando, Patrick Chan, Carolina Kostner, and Stéphane Lambiel are the listed guest skaters for Dreams on Ice, Japan's annual national skating exhibition show, June 15-17, 2012: http://www.onice.jp/DOI12/guests.html
    (I figure a separate thread can be started for this show as the time draws nearer.)
