    Thank you everyone for sharing reports and links to photos/videos. Shame I can't see the gorgeous shows live! I've been waiting for long to see Carolina skating in Japanese shows so it's a shame I can't see her at the rink in this spring. Come again, Carolina! But I'm glad skaters and the audience had very good time in Osaka. Now they're moving to Sapporo for Superstars on Ice.

    Mai MIHARA(Jr skater): ?
    Shoma UNO: "Tanguera"
    MIYAHARA: "Solace"
    MURA: "Love Never Die"
    MURAKAMI: "I Want to Spend My Lifetime Loving You"
    ODA: "Last Samurai"
    TAKAHASHI/KIHARA: "Fireflies"
    Shibutanis. "I Lived"
    Suzuki: "Hymne a l'amour"/"Love dance" (encore "O")

    TEN: "Singin' in the Rain"/Kazakhstan number(sorry I don't know the name of the music) (encore "Dance Macable")
    KOSTNER: "Ave Maria"(encore "Bolelo")
    FERNANDEZ: "Aerobic Class"/"Satan takes a holiday"/"Charlie Chaplin" (encore "Pirates of the Caribbean")
    MACHIDA: "Les Demoiselles de Rochefort" (encore "East of Eden")
    V/M: "Stay" (encore J-pop "Fortune Cookie" with Japanese skaters)
    CHAN: "Steppin' Out With My Baby" (encore "Elegie")
    SOTONIKOVA: "Black Swan" /"Come Together" (encore "Carmen")
    HANYU: !Hana Ni Nare!/!White Legend!(encore ")Notre-Dame de Paris")

    I read many tweets about Adelina's new ex "Black Swan". It sounded the program is kinda experimental one but her expressiveness of the story was so impressive for the crowd. And also many people reported that Carolina in Ave Maria was truly beautiful.

    In the end of the closing they did quad battle as usual.
    Hanyu 4T~3A~3A~3A~3A (He did 4S in the opeinig as well)
    Ten 4T~2A, 4T 
    Fernandez 4T
    Carolina 3T
    Adelina 3T

    Osaka Exhibition show will be aired on April the 12th.(Osaka Local) Then we'll find some videos on youtube.

    4Lo attempt from Hanyu I read some reports that the crowd had thrown presents into the rink so other skaters hesitated to try quads. Those presents might be in Hanyu's sight when he was in the air too. In the second half of this video shows the exhibition event of Mao's costumes/photos from her childhood. It says they display her 30 costumes, 150 photos and medals. Such a wonderful exhibition. ETA: I found an article about the exhibition event. Mao Asada: Unusual record, over 10.000 people visited the exhibition event on its first day.

    BTW it is announced that on April 11th(Fri) after the SOI show in Tokyo they'll have a ceremony for Mao and Hanyu. Mao's World record scores for short program in Worlds and Hanyu's World record scores for short program in Olympics is gonna be listed in Guinness World Records.

    Also it is announced that after every SOI show in Nagoya they'll have a special talk show. Kozuka will work as MC. It's still secret who from the cast will appear in them.

    Date and place: April 2 in Kobe
    Official website: http://www.charity-kobe.jp/
    Skaters: Daisuke Takahashi (did not perform because of the injury, but participated in), Mao Asada, Yamato Tamura, Nobunari Oda, Satoko Miyahara and more junior and novice skaters
    Photos in articles: http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20...033-sanspo-spo
    http://www.iza.ne.jp/kiji/sports/pho...320007-p2.html
    Mao, Daisuke and skaters stood for 3 hours for donation after the exhibition.
    They announced the total amount of the donation on their official site.
    http://www.charity-kobe.jp/

    Donation ¥10,604,562
    Auction ¥5,877,698
    Total ¥16,482,260 = $161,707

    Good job, skaters!! And thanks to all who came to the show and donated for the victims..

    The cast: http://www.charity-kobe.jp/images/top.jpg
    Daisuke Takanashi(as MC), Mao Asada, Taketo Tamura, Takeshi Honda, Nobunari Oda, Satoko Miyahara, Taichi Honda, Marin Honda, Mariko Kihara, Taichiro Yamakuma, Kazuki Tomono, Kaori Sakamoto, Mai Mihara, Saya Ueno, Ayana Yasuhara and others.

    Links to the video/photo of the charity show. Mao skated Jupiter again. It's kinda relief to see healthy Mao skating Jupiter since when she was skating this ex program she was very thin because of many struggles such as her mom's death, reworking on her basics, and of course the disaster.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSv66DHrMGg
    http://www.tokyo-sports.co.jp/wp-con...ae-182x300.jpg

    Daisuke proposed the plan of the charity show and this is the forth year to be held. Daisuke hadn't recovered enough from his injury so he worked as MC. Wish quick and full recover for Daisuke! Nobu skated The Last Samurai.

    Japanese skaters have been doing great support since the disaster. One of the reasons might be many of their fellow skaters are from the affected areas, especially Sendai where Takeshi Honda, Shizuka and Hanyu etc are from. And another might be the skaters who were representatives of Japan to be sent to the canceled Tokyo Worlds had conflicts inside of themselves. Many of them said later that they were wondering whether it was good or not to skate in the Worlds( even in re-scheduled Russian Worlds) since many people were still struggling in Japan. Mao was very shocked by the disaster and kept out of the rink for a week. It affected her peeking but she said later that she wished to skate well there to encourage Japanese people who were affected by the disaster. Shame she didn't place high enough to show her Jupiter in the exhibition show. But I was very much moved by the opening/ending of the exhibition show in Russian Worlds, which was choreographed to support Japan in pain. Back to the topic Japanese skaters are still very active for supporting the people who were affected by the disaster. They do skate in the charity shows across the country, hold skating classes for the victim kids, and go and skate in the shows in the affected areas.


    ETA:
    Link to an interview with Daisuke.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eK_dteQUtW4#t=17

    Daisuke was interviewed after the charity show. He was asked about his retirement but he didn't answer clearly. He explained like; If he continues competing, he won't quit in a coupe of years, it means he'll aim at the next Olys. It is a big decision. If he retires after this season, it's also a big decision. So he said he needs enough time to consider about his future.
