Thanks for the videos and articles.
Dai & Yuzuru arrived Nice, too.
And it seems both had practice session with Takahiko already.

goodluck to my favorite Baby YUZURU HANYU !!!!!
Latest news clip focused on Dai and Patrick, broadcasted on Fuji TV last night.
Right after 4CC, Dai flew to Detroit to rework on choreo for Klook with Pasquale.
They mainly focused on more transtions, but with more speed overall. Even changed step sequences, they said in this vid.
Dai admits that the difference in points (30) between Patrick and himself at 4CC made him realize how far Patrick is head of him, and motivated him once again.
His coach Utako Nagamitsu, who was always with him since the age of 14, says she does not remember to have seen Dai practice that hard. She and other coach (Takeshi Honda, probably?), fearing for a potential injury, had to check on him and ask whether he is okay.
Japanese newspapers also reported on Japanese skaters:
-Mao looking great. She landed a couple of 3A with UR, but she says she feels good on her axels for her first trial in Nice.
-Dai's quads are not stable yet at his first apprearance during practice session.
-Takahiko has a small trouble with his skating boots; recently he broke into a new pair of boots, but did not fit him, so had to go back to the old one. Now he feels much better with no pain.
