I must say, seeing Daisuke at Japanese Nationals this year was a treat. Admittedly, I was a bit let down by the fact that he wasn't even close to the medals (and correctly so), but he was still so wonderful to watch. His SP was the thing we were all waiting for, and his FS was even more so. But to me (and many others, following the posters here on GS) his programmes just showed us all that he should be dancing. What he is going to do the coming seasons. But I am worried that being the perfect solo dancer (even in Singles skating) is not the same as being a partner in Ice Dance. He'll have the steps (he'll know how to do his twizzles), but will he also have the unison which is expected in Dance? I hope he will. We all know it's not a question of being able to dance - he can - but will he be able to share the steps so to speak... I hope he will.
