    Thanks, Tatsuki is such a bibliophile, so different from the game addict of yesteryears. Now tell us your music choices!

    Unless any of the younger skaters in Japan fix their jumps, upgrade their base values and get consistent by 2018, could it be possible to see Yuzuru, Daisuke and Tatsuki once again representing Japan in Pyeongchang? So far anything can happen. Tatsuki has been insisting Sochi is his first and last Olympics and now he's changed his mind. Daisuke used to say he's retiring in 2014 and he didn't. He said he will be aiming for Pyeongchang as well in case he decides to come back. Not ruling Takahiko out, Pyeongchang may turn out to be Yuzuru, Tatsuki and Takahiko as well.
    It's a long way till the next Olympics but for now the possibilities are open.
    I am glad Tatsuki has decided to stay! I loved his last two seasons' short programs!

    I'm glad he's not yet retiring. I hate to see good skaters go, especially Japanese ones. I have a soft spot for them especially

    Video of Tatsuki receiving gifts at PIW

    I think the fans are asking him who made Je Te Veux and he tells them it's his own program.

    Ecstatic to learn that Tatsuki is going for Pyeongchang, and that I will see more of him in this quad! Thanks so much for the update ionap.

    Now eagerly waiting to see his new programs. I've been happy with what I saw of the new SPs of Yuzuru, Javier, and Jason, and I hope Tatsuki will also step up to the plate as they did and help make this quad a golden age of men's figure skating.

    On another note, my thoughts and good wishes are with the people of Japan upon learning of the recent earthquake there.

    ^Thanks ionap. . It was also my pleasure to read your edifying posts about my favorite skaters like Tatsuki. Not to put pressure on you, but I hope you'd let us know asap once he has unveiled his new programs (and his philosophical explanations behind them ).

    I can hardly wait myself to see his new programs and I certainly hope we won't have to wait till the GP season starts. Most of the skaters have unveiled their new SP / LP but there are no ice shows left for Tatsuki to attend so I'm not sure when the premiere is going to be.

    Maybe Japan Open? There's no news on who is going, it's always been Dai and Taka for the last few years. Taka is probably still going this year but who will replace Dai? Hopefully Tatsuki.

    And I found this report from the Sochi Olympics that I don't remember seeing before because there were many of them. It's a report on Dai and Tatsuki and how Tatsuki evolved as a skater looking up to Dai. There's even footage of 15 year old Tatsuki watching Dai compete at the Turin Olympics.

    I also hope for Tatsuki's sake that he has a chance to skate before his home crowd in a competition this year.

    Precious video with footage of a chibi Daisuke skating (I think). Thanks again ionap for sharing this find!
    As I couldn't understand what was being said in Japanese, I concentrated on the visuals. Tatsuki's expression watching Daisuke's SP at the Turin Olympics reminds me of Yuzuru's when Yuzuru was looking at Evgeni Plushenko practice on the Olympic ice in Sochi. Both had this awestruck expression on their faces, fanboying.

    Also, a bonus in watching the video is is also seeing the evolution of the hairstyles of both Tatsuki and Daisuke through the years. As has been more than once noted, gallons of ink can be used writing about the TJ men's coiffure .

    ^ Yes, that is footage of chibi Daisuke, and that's his mother saying he first started skating on February 14, 1994 and his LP in Sochi will be on February 14, 2014. He has possibly skated his swan song, a Beatles medley that had the purpose of summing up his life, on the 20th anniversary of his skating journey.

    As he was watching Daisuke in Turin with an awestruck expression, Tatsuki said he's wishing "Dai-chan" lots of good luck.

    Posting this here as part of the "Tatsuki fanboying over Dai" topic

    Dai performing the Cyberswan back at his old high school in Kurashiki, where Tatsuki was still studying at the time. You can spot Tatsuki cheering for Dai at the beginning of the video.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Efd0mcRSq3M

    And since I've been posting videos of young Tatsuki, I'm adding his LP from the 2007 International Counter Match
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHw_rOnBPRQ

    You can also spot him here sitting behind Dai in the k&c.
