    I think (at this point) this charity show will be his first appearance after his injury.
    http://rinkai.rocket3.net/

    臨スポ目標達成御礼フェスティバル
    (Rinkai Sports Center Thank-you Festival for Achieving the Goals)

    Date: May 25th
    Place: Rinkai Sports Center, Osaka
    Cast: Daisuke Takahashi, Akiko Suzuki, Kanako Murakami, Tatsuki Machida and skaters from Rinkai Sports Center

    Rinkai Sports Center has a skating rink but it was almost closed because of financial issues several years ago. Daisuke along with other figure skaters has been supportive for this rink. Skaters and volunteers asked people for donation to repair this old rink. They also negotiated with the city government. And they achieved satisfactory goals so far. So this is kinda congrats and thanks festival for it. It's nice to see him to skate at this charity festival. Congrats for everyone who worked to maintain this rink.

    Thank you for the correction. It's my bad memory.

    Miss Arakawa hinted to him last year that she would not have been able to carry on doing Friends on Ice for ever, and she suggested that he would take her place. Now she announced she is pregnant and she's taking some time off, and many people imagine Daisuke will be more involved in the show this time.
    Of course all remains to be seen, but he may have a couple of chances if he feels up to it and if he's interested.
    Yeah, I heard it. I hope he starts his own show in his hometown first and gradually makes it bigger, like Mao's The Ice. Friends on Ice is kinda successful show but it's still Shizuka's. Wish he'll create a wonderful show of his own if he wants. I'd love to see it.

    In this show Daisuke made the come back after his injury today. His new ex program is to "kissing you"(with vocal) by Des'ree. If you are interested in the show, ask twitter with "臨スポ".

    As a note this rink is where Machida trained in the Olympic season. It's good for him too that the rink is repaired and won't be closed anytime soon.


    ETA:
    Interview with Takahashi on 'Boomsports'(kind of Kansai Univ student paper) https://twitter.com/boomsports/statu...21426730569729
    「お客さんの前で滑るのは五輪後初めて。ここでもう一度滑ることができて本当にうれしい。臨スポに協力でき ることは何でもやる」
    (my rough translation)
    Takahashi: This is my first appearance in front of the audience after Olympics. I'm very happy to skate in this rink again. I'll do everything that I can do to support this rink in Rinkai Sports Center.


    Interview with Machida on Boomsports. https://twitter.com/boomsports/statu...24339414675456
    「行政と民間、スケーター、インストラクターが力を合わせているスケートリンク。ここの氷は僕の昨シーズン の喜怒哀楽を一番良く分かっている。来季も臨海の氷とともに歩んでいくし、ずっと歩んでいく」
    (my rough translation)
    Machida: We, the city government, companies, skaters, and instructors are all hand in hand to support this rink. This ice knows everything of me in this season. I go on this ice in the next season, and forever.


    According to Boomsports they're going to have press conference after today's second show. We'll see some articles then.


    Sorry I don't have enough time to translate this article right now. But it has a photo of Dausuke so I post it now so that you can see the photo if you're interested.

    I read some reports that "Kissing You" is a sexy program. According to the reports by Japanese fans he does 3F, 3Lz, a split jump in it. In the morning show he looked nervous and fell on one of the jumps. In the evening show he looked much more relaxed and nailed the jumps but stumbled during the steps. He skated "Eye" as anchor.

    Thank you^. I am anxious to see the full video.

    Here is one of the Kween's rendition of Kissing You (which is one of my favorite programs from her).
    I know this is a Dai thread(forgive me) but this is beautiful to watch that I wanted to share.

    Daisuke Takahashi's coach Utako Nagamitsu wrote a heartwarming letter to her student.

    Inside Japanese TV Sunday show "Home, Sweet Home", coach Nagamitsu reads a moving letter to her long-time student, as he sits in silence by her side.

    This is the video with English subtitles. Thanks to our kind uploader, translator and 'captioneer':
