    Sankei published an interview with Dai: http://sankei.jp.msn.com/sports/news...6520000-n1.htm
    And this blogger was super fast with the translation! http://ameblo.jp/soul-maverick/entry-11409159258.html

    I think he insists on quad jumps a little. They are more necessary now than they used to be and certainly not necessary in 2009-2010.

    thanks for posting this! I do hope Dai has his boots the way he likes them now and has had time to practice! With the depth of the Japanese men, I actually feel so nervous for him - he really needs to get to the GPFs, I think, to send a message 'back home' and then there's nationals....oh gosh. Anyway, wishing him all the very best!

    Thanks so much!

    I am also happy to be an uber, now and always. I have a spot on my Forever List open and waiting for Daisuke, alongside Kurt, John Curry, Toller Cranston, Lambiel, Yagudin, and Ilia Kulik.

    I'm sure Daisuke would be extremely happy to be on that list himself!

    I have faith Dai will go to world's; I think he is Japan's hope first over even Hanyu.
