    This.
    I really hope this season coming up is his season. He's running out of time. And he seems sooo sweet and down to earth.
    Anyone have any recent pics of him? Or his wedding maybe?

    Why is she?

    According to her blog, Akiko is now in US for choreographing and training.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Risa Shoji next season, she was such a lovely addition this season, her skating is so elegant and she definitely gives me Shizuka vibes. I think this girl could really go places if she survives puberty and works on consistently rotating her jumps, at 14 she has all the other bases covered already and the judges seem to like her skating too, judging from her PCS marks.

    Her Tango SP was by Kenji Miyamoto but her FS (Fiddler on the Roof) was done by Camerlengo. The fiddler program was very charming!

    akiko's fiddler on the roof programme was just wonderful. call me old school, but i just love the music / choreography / everything .... pls update us if you know what akiko's skating to next season!!!

    also call me , but i am not all that sure about murakami's potential. she has got good speed across the ice, but a few things will hurt her ... 1) really awful technique on the flip and 2) terrible flutz. plus, she can't rely on that "I'm so cute" look soon ..... . The third spot on the world team (assuming Miki ando continues to compete) belongs to AKIKO.

    ah, thank you. she sure has great taste in music and choreography

    i also don't want akiko to be overlooked in favor of the new generation--they aren't quite ready yet, presentation wise, IMO, though risa shoji is definitely one to watch.

    tell you what, japan can have the non-nagasu worlds spot from the USA ;p

    (just kidding, fellow americans, put down your pitchforks)

    Maybe Oda can go to math class whilst he is injured.
    I guess the hard thing for a lot of people to accept is why God would allow me to go running through their yards, yelling and spinning around.

    Akiko is almost 27 now and is near the end of her career. It will be hard for her to hold off the younger Japanese girls.

    This. And regarding Kanako, she's pretty good, but if Risa Shoji gets her URs under control I think she could easily pass Kanako by the time she's eligible for senior competition (12-13 season), she's more elegant than Kanako and can rotate her 3-3 more consistently too, plus she doesn't rely on being cute.

    That was a great interview from Dai he really talked openly about his season and shared his feeling and emotions. I hope all goes well with his surgery and rehab.

    Thanks to Sylvia for the link and to mot for the translation.

    Takashi had a bolt removing surgery. Kozuka and Asada are out due to IMG's marketing tactics (to raise the value of THE ICE). Ando is in Russia, not sure what Morozov is planning for the next season.
    um,why Kozuka and Asada not attend DOI?They used to in DOI last few years and not effect The ice……

    and I see Ando in fantasy on ice cast list in June and July

    According to this 5/20 English article, Daisuke Takahashi had his surgery last Thursday (5/19): http://www.houseofjapan.com/sport/ta...s-knee-surgery

    So can she do 3/3 or not? Kinda conflicting...

    I remember both Asada and Kozuka didn't show at DOI two years ago due to same "choreography" reasons. Maybe their agent is negotiating with the DOI organizer for better deals now. I think Ando will appear anyway. It's hard to sell to broadcasters without three "stars" including Takahashi.

    She has UR issues with her harder triples (3lz, 3f, 3lo) but not the easier ones (3t, 3s), and her 3-3 combo just happens to be 3s-3t, so she gets it ratified nearly every time. If that makes sense. It's the same for her 2a-3t. Kanako otoh seems to get a lot of UR calls on the back end of her 3t-3t.
