    LOL

    What I don't like is that people on these boards have described Tatsuki as "poor man's Dai" etc, when the two have quite a different way of expressing themselves. Both are dancers on ice, but Dai has theatrical flair (not to mention theatrical hair!) whereas Tatsuki has a more classical approach and quiet elegance. Both have fire, but it comes out in a different way. Dai on ice is more extroverted and immediate - like you said, he has wattage - but when Tatsuki's on, he certainly skates with fire in his heart and you can see he really feels the music with his whole body.
    I get where are you comming from:
    Dai--- Drama as in theater, acting. not a big fan of the hair
    Machida--- Contemporary dance

    I am just thinking, Tasuki is a cute name in Japanese. It's a boy name but I can't help but thinking of a petite girl when I hear his name. Tasuko is the equivalence of this name for a girl if I remember correctly. I would not surprised if his father/mother and relative call him Tatchan (intimate names for relatives to call) How cute! I know about this from reading manga anyways.

    Oh well. I hope we can - at the very least - agree that The Machida Mullet circa 2008 was not a successful aesthetic choice.

    ETA: Does anybody know any nicknames given to Tatsuki by Team Japan members, other than Philosopher?

    Nick name is different from intimate names I suppose. In Japan, boy's names are often shorten and we add -kun after that. For example: Tatsuki = Tatsu-kun or Yuzuru = Yuzu-kun
    And -chan is used for the girl, (-san is formal)

    But sometimes, when you are really close to someone, you call them -chan or -kun regardless of the gender. Some bosses call his underlings -kun even though they are females. Some friends or sisters call their friends -chan even though they are males.

    So someone might call Tatsuki "Tatchan" in a teasing way. They might call Yuzuru "Yuchan", too. But usually, that person has to be very close, like mother, sister or girlfriend I suppose.

    Anyways, Tatchan sounds really cute.

    ^ Thanks for the info!

    Given that on these boards we often talk about Yuzu and Dai and Taka and Nobu, it is actually a bit surprising nobody has been calling him Tatsu yet. He deserves a forum nickname, too!

    ...also, I am kinda lazy when I'm typing, so shortened names are nice...

    Everytime I see Dai´s hair I think in this image http://www.theanimegallery.com/data/.../tAG_39344.jpg

    I´m sure all the men of Team Japan are gonna look at the hair they have when young and regret it one day (I mean Yuzuru´s Mushroom/Plushenko´s hair, Tatsuki´s mullet...) I think the only one that has keep decent hair all his life (at least as far as I can remember) is Nobunari.

    No, I am sure they only have not a good taste. Their choices of costume could be the example.

    I'm quite certain that phenomenon is not limited to the men of Team Japan (most people are just lucky enough that their sins of the youth are not kept for posterity by mass media... I know I have some photos I wish wouldn't exist let alone have them spread all over the internet)

    I think Tatsuki is called "Matchy" (まっちー) by Team Japan. People whose surnames are "Machida" are often called that.
    But I heard Daisuke call him "Tatsuki" and Yuzuru call him "Tatsuki-kun" so maybe not all of them all the time.

    ^Thanks for the info mikaboo.

    "Matchy" brings to my mind the image of a matchstick which would have been fitting had Tatsuki continued with that bouffant ("mushroom') haristyle he's been sporting for most of the last season. (Hehe, realize we keep on discussing the Japanese male figure skaters and their hair, which perhaps deserves a separate thread all its own .)

    ^ Matchy sounds fine, and it sort of echos the Firebird theme!

    Everybody who finds adorkable pics of Matchy&co's hairdos should definitely post them in the Team Japan thread.
