    I've been a long time fan of figure skating and Daisuke along with Brian are my favorite male figure skaters. I'm glad to see Daisuke win today over Chan. Although the Chan fans will say this was a cheese event and really doesn't mean anything, I hope Daisuke will take this will and train even harder so there will be no doubt next season even with the questionable judging.

    I was gobsmacked by Dai's performance! Simply phenomenal!

    Only Michelle Kwan, Daisuke Takahashi , Akiko Suzuki have this euphoric effect to viewers!

    Daisuke is now officially the new world record holder for the men's SP! http://www.isuresults.com/isujsstat/phsmsp.htm

    He also has the highest total score of the season among the men: http://www.isuresults.com/isujsstat/...12/sbtsmto.htm

We're always told over here that the Japanese value restraint, but at a moment like this when the announcers are almost bellowing with amazement and happiness, it's delightful to realize how much this performance means to Japanese skate fans. And to Daisuke fans around the world!

    Yes, that was lovely.

    I am hoping that D&W's and V&M's FDs at least were broadcast on Asahi TV and that a hidef video of them will someday surface.

    Now, this is the part I don't get. Why do those aunties hide their love for Daisuke from their husbands? Is that some cultural thing I fail to get?

    Yes, bc, I would say it's a cultural thing in Japan.

    My husband knows I am a huge Dai fan for years. He knows that I always am a Dai fan, regardless of his results. So, when Dai has good performances and I am happy, and he says he is also happy because I am happy. We are just open to each other, unlike the average couples in Japan, who have been married happily over 20 years.

    But on the way back home Friday night when Dai won WTT Mens event, my husband spoke less and less in the train, and hardly spoke to me by the time we arrived at home. I did not undestand at first, but eventually realized that he was actually jealous of Daisuke!
    So, I can understand those aunties' situation, wanting to try to hide their love for Dai.

    It's probably more about them being married woman than being Japanese. For one woman in the article, the hubby is the one footing the bill for her to see figure skating when she really just want to see Daisuke.

    It also raise a point of what Daisuke will do after he retires. He'll most likely be a show skater but coaching is also possible for him.

Well, I am of course happy for all those anties but in fact it has nothing to do with Dai or any other skater. It has everything to do with J- employment culture. The audience on Thursday and Friday in Yoyogi was different than on Saturday and Sunday. On Th&Fr there were very few young people and many obasans. There were no line in men's facilities. I didn't see any kids and school kids. On Sat&Sun men had to wait to use the bathroom too, kids were noisying around. Middle class were shopping for FS-books and souvenirs. And, there were a lot of young couple, for whom attendance of a FS event was a romantic date . Some couples were with little suitcases, probably came from other prefectures. Here normally people don't call in sick, like in my home country for example , when in fact they are going to a fanclub meeting. What I am saying is younger fans of Dai simply don't have time to stalk him at train stations.

    Btw, Dai is going to China in May for a show and it's gonna be his first show not in Japan after some time. Before that he will have a bunch of shows in Japan over the golden week.
