    Wow, thank you for the link! Such a beautiful video, especially with the Bolero arrangement Japan has been using for figure skating every year. Team Japan is truly the best and most cohesive team of all.

    I'll add a team Japan group EX program from when they won World Team Trophy back in 2012. They were adorable

    Editing to add a video from Japan Super Challenge 2008. Spot a 13 year old Yuzuru in Daisuke's team. He was so tiny.

    Welcome ionap! Thank you too for the precious videos! TJ being both adorable and adorkable! Looove that pair lift and spin from Daisuke and Kanako! And "tiny" really describes Yuzuru then!

    My pleasure! Kanako did the same to Daisuke at one point but it wasn't on the ice

    I also love this Monkey Majik program at the 2013 Stars On Ice with Mao, Daisuke, Kanako, Kurt Browning, Jeffrey Buttle and Joannie Rochette. What a beautiful program!

    no idea what's going on but they seem to have a good time

    Daisuke doing karaoke on Hana Ni Nare and mocking Kanako. As I said in Tatsuki's thread, he's the biggest goof of the team.

    Also, Tatsuki warning Daisuke that Hanyu can get 'Really Angry' if you make fun of him when he's being serious.

    If so, he might be reading a manual on how to handle Yuzuru? Just a wild guess though
    I bet Tatsuki is the one who actually wrote that manual

    thanks for sharing.

    sometimes it's good not to understand a word, then you can notice other things
    Dai bows -> Yuzu bows
    Dai claps -> Yuzu claps
    Dai goes wuuuu -> Yuzu goes wuuuu
    lmao. monkey see, monkey do, eh?

    Haha yes, I've noticed that too. I only understand very little Japanese but they're mostly just praising each other. The interviewer asked Honda what did he think of Yuzuru and Daisuke's free that day and Honda commented on how high their level is. Then the interviewer said Honda is the pioneer of the 4T in Japan and that's where Daisuke went "wooo" and Yuzuru followed I hope I'm not making mistakes.

    Question: I've always thought the Honda kids' father is Takeshi Honda. Are they related or do they just happen to have the same surname? Thanks!

    I don't think so. Honda is a common surname in Japan.
    Sato, Suzuki, Takahashi and Murakami are common as well.
