    I can't stand it.
    Cheer up, cheer up, maybe all is not lost! Look what Tanya Flade posted here.

    All of a sudden the thought of Dai working with Nichol sounds like a dream!!!

    This is true! So although this is not good news IMO - Dai will continue to astound no matter what!

    Dai is an accomplished skater. He will do well with whoever he works with. Looking forward to his forthcoming programs.

    4STh posted this in the GSD:

    Takahashi is working on his 2012-13 programs with Lori Nichol.
    http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news

    I can't wait to see what they come up with! And I agree with spikydurian and The Accordion, he will be awesome with anything he is given. I can't imagine anything he can't do.

    Also, I really, really want him to skate an exhibition to "Smooth Criminal" by Michael Jackson.

    Takahashi is not working with Lori Nichol this season after all -- refer to today's article posted in GSD: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...15#post3595715

    And now IFS FB claims Daisuke has confirmed that he will indeed work with Lori Nichol! Any other source confirming this? It seems rather strange.

    Great, now all he needs is Belbin's mom to start designing his costumes and I'm in absolute heaven.

    Dai's SP as performed at FOI

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQ5ZYwKA384

    Dai arrived in Russia on September 6. He will be training with Morozov and his group for about 3 weeks. The training camp is taking place at Novogorsk Training Center which is a top notch facility.

    Still no information regarding his LP.

    Dai's popularlity is getting crazier and crazier in Japan. Every time he is in a show or a competition, it's getting harder to get a ticket, particularly when you choose a seat or a day. For instance, for Shizuka's "Friends on Ice" (Aug. 24-26) his fans had to fight through fierce battles of grabbing tickets.
    One of the reasons is that there are only 2 more seasons fans can see him as an eligible ( Dai said he is going to quit after Sochi.) and there are only 4 more competition programs of him we can see. His coach Utako Nagamitsu said it makes her sad when she thinks about she can see only 4 more programs of Dai from now.

    ^^ Thanks ostile! I re-posted the above in the Japan Open thread in GSD.

    From Japan Open thread in GSD:

    OMG, Dai

    As far as I'm concerned, Dai Takahashi should be the current and defending World champion right now. What I love about Dai is that he's not just a great champion, he's a great person with grace and charisma. He's a true gentleman. He worries not about his competition. He just absorbs and learns all he can, and he works hard and focuses on what he can do to improve and to grow as a skater and a person. That is what makes him such a great champion, and such a wonderful human being.

    Dai has challenged himself continually and he has sought out choreographers, dancers, coaches and mentors to help him be the best he can be. No, he's not a perfect skater -- he still has areas of weakness. But guess what? D**n if he isn't the best male skater in the world right now. Dai don't rest on his laurels or wimp out because it's hard and he suffered a serious injury. If landing quads is going to be what it takes in the men's field, Dai decided to focus on working extremely hard to raise himself back to the level of landing them successfully. He also has never stopped continuing to challenge himself artistically. Last year, I don't think the judges properly rewarded him. But Dai never hung his head or got down on himself or blamed the judges. He just decided to keep on working hard. He kept performing to a high level, and he should have won Worlds 2011 on the basis of his great performances. But again, he didn't blame the judges. He probably said to himself, ... "I did all I could and I performed my best, and I'm almost there. Now, what can I do to improve for next year?"

    Lovin' you Dai!!! Thanks and keep going strong!!! Best of luck, always.

    Amazing how he managed to improve even further since last year: his SS, ice coverage and spins are amazing, besides everything else. It's incredible how he manages to always get better and better. What a role-model as a sport man.
    Kudos, Dai, you're a true champion!!

    There was a special TVAshita Get Sports on Daisuke Takahashi and Mao Asada a couple of days ago and Daisuke's 15 minutes part is now online:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxTgH...ature=youtu.be

    I'm at work so I couldn't watch it with the sound on. A lot of it is actually material that was already shown on Japanese tv but could be nice for those who haven't seen much of the most recent Japanese coverage. Although we're shown a lot more detailed analysis of the evolution of his quad than I ever remember seeing, so as far as I know, that is new

    And always nice to see Honda-senshu again ^-^
