As long as there will be a brand new SP in the next season, I think it's great. It's just that we can see one more SP from him, and that alone is a joy for the fans! I also like the costume. I loved the Rock'n'Roll medley, but the judges showed last season already that they don't get "cool" Dai so now classical Dai it is.

I loved The Stroll too. And I agree cool has not been working for Dai lately.

My life will be so far beyond complete that I will be able to levitate into the air and drift into the clouds.

After seeing Moonlight Sonata I think I prefer his old SP. I'm sad, but I think he will come back with a great Free. The point gap isn't impossible to overcome. Biting my nails for tomorrow.

Here's my translation of Dai's comments after the SP. The original article in Japanese is here: http://sportsnavi.yahoo.co.jp/sports...0000011-spnavi
It wasn’t good at all. I kind of thought about it too much, and could not move my body in a natural way. I think I wasn’t able to practice enough. I want to make improvements by the next time.
I did have mistakes in jumps, but moreover, I was not able to show my skating. Too many thoughts occupied my head, and after the performance was over, I had this feeling which I cannot quite describe. I have to make use of this experience for the next time around. I like the program itself, and am glad that I made the change, but I regret I could not skate the way I could have. There are parts of it that still feel unfamiliar, so my body doesn’t move in a completely natural way. Right now, I feel like I have to move my own body to the music. A performance is different from daily practice and I think anxiety played a big part, too. It’s not that this program is difficult to skate, though, and I don’t want this to be the last time (to skate this).
Regarding the quad, it wasn’t my best and it was a missed jump. But I think it was good that I could hold onto it considering the way I jumped. The triple axel, on the other hand, is not very good, partly, I think, because I changed to a different type of blade this season. There is no denying that I’ve been struggling with my axel a little.
Regarding this short program, the best thing to do is to practice it more. I have not yet had enough practice compared to my free program. At tomorrow’s free, I just hope to keep attacking, not worrying about going down in the placement, but only thinking about going upwards.
