    He backed it up with a New Seasons and Personal best at 4CC.
    I'm really hoping that he can win more medals on the GP circuit this coming season.

    I am hoping the same!

    If you check ISU standings for the season, he is ranked 10th, and breathing down Mura's eighth place for scond Japanese man., despite having only one GP assignment.

    Thanks so much for starting a thread for him

    Daisuke is trying other quads

    here he does a respectable attempt at 4F!!!
    https://instagram.com/p/2sVZvem7Sv/

    Don't anyone tell me quads can't be learned in your 20's.

    I have added everything I could find to Weathergal's excellent OP.

    If you find anything else, please post!!

    BTW, Daisuke's verified Facebook page:

    It's a public page (viewable without logging into FB). At the end of 2014, DM posted about the conversion (from a personal FB profile, I think he means).

    The most recent FB post was on April 21.

    From @pandaatlarge's full article for IN re Dreams On Ice (emphasis added):
    Daisuke Murakami, winner of the NHK Trophy last year, debuted his free skate for next season, set to "Bring Him Home" from the soundtrack of Les Misérables. He opened with a beautiful triple loop but then popped a salchow into a double, and recovered with a triple flip. As it was a shortened version of his free, he skipped some elements and performed two spins and a choreographic sequence before the ending. After winning the only Grand Prix assignment he had last season and finishing fourth at the Four Continents Championships, he said that his goal this season is to make it to the Grand Prix Final and be selected for worlds.

    It says on his website that "Bring Him Home" is his SP. There may have been some confusion because they didn't say if it was his SP/FS/EX yesterday, but the DOI announcer apparently introduced it as his SP today.
    http://www.daisukemurakami.com/news#news-259
    Both of Dice's programs are choreographed by Lori Nichol if this hasn't been known already.
    ETA: I can't link to the source, but it's on his website. News from May 14th, 2015

    Dice with the boys.

    Dice with the girls.

    Kind of late, but thanks to Weathergal and Doris for starting/updating the thread.
