    Japan will host World Team Trophy again in 2013
    http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/11...1730001-n1.htm

    It's a decision at the JSF board meeting. Machida and Ishikawa were selected for NHK Trophy.

    I am not that familiar with the upcoming Japanese skaters, particularly the men.

    Assuming Takahashi, Kozuka, Oda are the top 3, who would be 4,5,6 in Japan?

    Are there any junior skaters with promise?

    Hanyu is #4 right now but I could see him moving up to #3 this season. Tatsuki Machida, Takahito Mura and Daisuke Murakami are all pretty close so I don't who to call #5.

    The junior skaters are very inconsistent so I can't say much about them yet. But Keiji Tanaka won silver at Junior Worlds and he says he plans to do a quad on the JGP.

    for Ishikawa getting NHK. I loved her free skate at this past season's Japanese Nats.

    Wow, Dai's new SP is amazing!!! I love the preciseness of all of his movements. And his jumps look spot on even in the gala. Great

    Golden Skate article (August 31, 2011): Tanaka aims for top junior podiums
    Competing at Junior Worlds was an important experience for the teenager.

    “I was able to watch top skaters which gave me additional motivation,” he noted. “In 2012, I want to come back and take the title.”

    And he has a game plan for this goal: “I want to improve not only my jumps, but also other aspects of my skating.”

    Tanaka has prepared a new free skate to The Untouchables by Ennio Morricone for the new season. The choreography was done by Kenji Miyamoto. He is keeping the Violentango short program from the past season.

    Tanaka is currently scheduled to compete at the JGPs in Brisbane, Australia (Sep 7-11) and Innsbruck, Austria (Sep 28 – Oct 2).

    Excellent choreography, his movement is so detailed and so precise.

    He continues to surpass himself.

    I really hope he can get a consistent 4toe because that's all that is missing now (but even without it, I would have him crush everyone - other than Chan - on PCS).

    Dai should surpass Chan in PCS because he truly shows his personality and expresses the music much better than Chan does.

    He should. But only by a small margin I think.

    With the rest, there's no competition.

    Risa Shoji's new FS, I absolutely love it! Perfect style for her, and I personally think she was robbed of gold at this JGP, Courtney fell twice in her FS did not present that program nearly as well as Risa did, IMO. Still, nice season debut for Risa, her 3s-2t-2t and 2a-3t combos are huge and made me think of Shizuka. Hope she keeps up the good work!

    Yes, it's a bit different from what he has skated before, but that doesn't mean that it's not "Dai-ish''. It's not for us to decide what is and what is not ''Dai-ish". He himself decides what he wants to skate and in which direction he wants to go. And if he is comfortable with the program, it's image, character and feeling, it means that it is "Dai-ish''. More precisely, it corresponds with his current "state of mind", his current view on skating and what he wants to express. People tend to change with time, and so skaters change their style as well. If Takahashi has decided to go in a new direction with his skating, it doesn't mean that it's not the "real'' him. Simply this is the new, current version of him. I understand that you want the "old'' Takahashi and what you loved about his skating back. But that is what you want him to be, not what he wants - at least currently.
