I usually never ever start threads but I just had to for Tatsuki. I've liked him for a long time now but as far as his results go he's had his ups and downs. This year I hope he's able to solve whatever health issues he has by nationals and is able to take the 3rd (or possibly 2nd!) spot at the Olympics.
I just love his dedication to his programs and how in to them he gets. Even though he definitely admires Daisuke I like how he's different from him and stands out in his own way.
Thanks a lot for creating a thread, malo42. Tatsuki well deserves a fan thread of his.

Kudos to Tatsuki for winning 2 GPs and advancing to GP Final in Japan! Just impressive, isn't it?! So glad he has such a great season so far. Good luck to Tatsuki at GPF and the Nats.
This guy is a bookie's nightmare. No one expected him to be the highest ranking Japanese man in the GP circuit. I hope he's able to get in a solid performance at nationals.
Good to know he's rising to the occassion. Looking at his past two skates, he does stand a chance in making it. It's not easy to break into the favourites' domain but he did a great job and I am sure he worked very hard for it. Good luck to Machida.

What he says is, hmm, very philosophical for an athlete, isn't it?
