    The show lighting and camera editing make it a bit difficult to visualize what this will be like as a competition SP but even so, it looks good, and Dai seems on form!

    Simply exquisite. Such an amazing program. Should get the highest PCS of anyone if judging is fair.

    Geezus that was sick. Will be very very tough to beat if skated cleanly.
    Loving skaters who are putting together truly "Olympic" programs. This is definitely one of them.

    When this program matures to competition level it's going to be stunning - could be one of his best! His musicality is front and center - and I think that's when Daisuke is at his best. I'm excited to see it grow during the season.

    This is true interpretation. Sure it's choreographed but still...
