Finally! Dai thread!
Those who are here for bitching- next door please.
He's truly one of a kind!
Sorry but, why you call him like that 'Daisuke-san' ??
"san" Japanse way of refering politely to a person. Dai-San or Asada-Mao-San.
I love Daisuke and think he is the bees knees, and am so incredibly happy to see he absolutely killed the field, he deserve everything!
The Patrick Chan rule should not apply just to Chan but to anyone who's best at something. And Dai absolutely deserve his bonuses for being the most artistic and musical men's skater today, followed very closely by Hanyu (and Jeremy), and weird they both came from Japan who's not know for showing their emotions, yet they have 2 of the most expressive mens skaters around, plus Akiko.
Just to say, stereotype doesn't apply much in figure skating Hard work and talent does!!
Yep, count me in too. I might have to become an official Dice-K Uber (TM). He cleaned everyone else's klook at NHK.
I seriously need Dai on the top of the 2012 Worlds podium. I need it so bad!
There are so many things to love for his skating, but for me the biggest is his willingness to try different styles and really commit to the programs. Would any of his peers (save maybe Jeremy) interpret Blues for Klook (B4K) so amazingly well?

At: 2:00-2:24 ... To me, these are the guys this season!
At: 2:26 ... 2 halves of the Worlds podium I'd like to see (cut out that smaller guy on the far right)
Here are the clips on NHK Web site. You can watch SP, FS, EX and interviews of some medalists (only in Japanese). Just click on the picture you wish to watch...
That was a great performance
Who was this filmed by, a cat breeder?
Very cool! Not your usual fs groupies!
