    If you compare Daisukes body language and facial expression from SA to NHK there is a big change, imho. Something awakened his killer instinct. He was all smiley and joking at SA, even when he didn't perform well. Here he looked really serious, ready to attack even after the program was over! If he can keep that mindset, that would be fantastic. I love fierce Dai!

    He was great! You could clearly see what he wants - to win there. I'm so happy for him! Glad to see once again strong jumps from him.

    I'm dancing with you!

    It just feels so amazing, after so many competitions when I was feeling so down and sad, then Dai delivers something so special. It is really time to party hard here in the Dai-Thread! We all deserve it.

    ^This! I can't wait to hear deedee's report. She was there in that fabulous audience. I have never seen such
    support for a skater in my life. Dai is beloved by his fans who support him no matter what.

    ...here I am. sorry everyone that I am checking in here this late. I don't have much time right now, so just a brief report for you all.

    Okay, Dai ROCKED the arena tonight! He was in the 'zone' during his entire performance. Even after it was over, I thought. Did you hear all these cheers and screaming when he hit the quad and 3A thru your PC? The volume of screaming was twice bigger than thru PC/TV, probably. Everyone, almost everyone got into their feet well before his ending pose.

    Very very glad to see fierce Dai has come back! And I was especially happy that he seems to have his 3A consistent again. Can't wait to go back to Yoyogi tomorrow!

    Thanks for the report! Dai looked 300 percent better tonight than he did at Skate America. Congrats on a successful SP.

    I think Daisuke's hair should have a pcs on its own, the hair skates to the music! Love the program, the outfit, everything!

    Thanks, everyone, I did of course!
    Oh, you will know if you attend any competition in Japan where either of Dai Akiko Mao are to compete!

    During break time/ice resurface time after Men SP, I was standing in a line for ladies room o the basement, I saw many women of ALL generations who were jumping with joy, hugging one another, and/or relieved and crying, saying 'oh my god oh my god he did!' 'Good for him!' 'So happy for him'. Seeing them, I myself relieved too and my eyes got watered with tears while waiting for a bathroom.
    One another thing that is very remarkable/typical of his fans, is Dai has so many male fans, which is a bit unusual I would say because male skating fans in Japan normally root for ladies skaters only, you know. Prior to his SP got started, I pleasantly surprised to hear a number of male voices yelling 'Ganbare Daisuke!'.

    I am so happy for Daisuke you don't even know!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He just made my week I am so proud of him that he was able to come back after a few rough skates and prove that he still has what it takes to be the best in the world. He'll always be the best to me <3 What am I going to do when he retires?!?! I can't think about it. All I can do is enjoy and take in every single performance he is giving us. Daisuke, I will be cheering for you always. Love, your number one fan in America <3

    Thank you deedee for your words. Dai, Mao and Akiko love was rampant in the audience.
    Overall Japanese audiences are very supportive of all skaters.

    Here is the Men's and Ladies Medal Cermony. It starts with Mao's Interview.

    Thanks to the uploader!
