    After having won the championship in the Worlds in 2011, Ando took a rest last season. In this season having aimed at the returning to the competition, she declined the Grand Prix series with the reason of the absence etc. of the coach and declined the JSF Certified Athlete. She retired from the Toyota Motor, too, which she had belonged.

In case of landing to Japan for the first time this time, the choice fell on him who is one also of the highest peak in the eligible.

    It was decided that Takahashi who accepted willingly collaborates with Fumiya Fujii (50) of singer with million hit music "Another Orion".
    Takahashi is full of vigor, saying "I wish everybody feel how big the scale of the show is because it is the show which is full of live feeling. I would like to do my best so as to be able to do the skating which everybody can enjoy with Fujii's vocal in live!".
