    Dai and Nobu show their practices

    Video Clip

    Nobu tried the quad several times and did not suceed. Dai has just come back from the US where he modified his programs. He will do the 3A in the latter half, exchanging it with the loop. He was not in a good condition on this day. He feels "anxious about the quad," but he "also would feel anxious" if his quad practices were going well. He feels there's "only a month" til the Oly.

    Nobu feels "good" about his condition. He also has had a "good timing" in his quad. Now he would like to "enhance stamina."
    He drew his personal fortune when he visited the shrine for the new year and got the "Unlucky." But he thinks it important "to make efforts without getting depressed." There's always something comical about this adorable boy.

    Well, there's no doubt that Nobunari is in for an unlucky start of the year. It had been previously mentioned that just after Nationals he will go to USA to prepare for Olympics with his coach, but was asked by KanDai to participate in the open practice (hint: the spectators needed to pay for the access to the practice). In result, 1/3 of the ~6 weeks of preparation before Olympics Nobunari spent without his main coach.

    Nobu says "I was told that the 'Unlucky' is not that bad so that I will take it positively."
    I don't quite get his comment . Yes, the worst one is the 'Very Unlucky', but.... But there seem lots of theories to make sense of the fortune paper
