Preview - Looks like some transition that leads to Finnstep

They're teasing us by stopping right before the Finnstep pattern begins. :wink:

Better audio:



I gotta admit they've progressed farther than I deemed possible by this point. Look at the one-foot stsq, those twizzles, the straightline and rotational lifts. They're so good already! :love2: Only the stationary lift was slightly unsteady. Dai says he's too preoccupied with the fear of dropping Kana to be paying attention to executing the lifts beautifully, but for the most part that really doesn't show, I think.

I'm extremely excited for their debut. :hap10:




Btw, where's deedee? If you're reading and if you'd like - please just quickly drop in to let us know you're alright. :ghug:

As a lead-up to the NHK Trophy, NHK BS1 is going to show a series of portraits on Mao, Dai and Yuzuru. Dai's is going to be broadcasted on the 26th, 9:00-10:50 am: "Artist on the ice - Daisuke Takahashi" (might be the one we already know).

I'm fine, synes. :) Sorry it's been a while since I visited the GS forum the last.

I'm still using Internet Explorer, I know I should better use Edge or Chrome. The problem with me is everytime I start the above, I see a message coming up saying 'NortonLifeLock (my PC security software) has approved of Chrome's web camera accsess', which of course I don't like... I tried several times to change my settings to default it on Chrome/Edge, to no success so far. Thus I can't open Youtube, FB twitter, etc. anymore. sigh...

Anyway thanks to my wonderful friends incl you here, now I know their music, am so much looking forward to their programs at NHK trophy, too!
Agreed with you all. Dai is HOT with his long grown hair. My tiny worry is probably he doesn't show up painting his face green :laugh:

10 days to go. In the meantime please keep staying safe and be happy, my friends! :ghug:

Thank goodness you're ok! I was starting to be worried about you. Thank you for dropping in. (Gosh, I sound like my own mom. I'm sorry. :laugh:) Hope you get those IT problems sorted out. And please stay healthy yourself. :pray:

Yes to yellow suit, no to green face paint (fortunately it's not allowed anyway :wink:).

Here's another short Dai-focused appetizer with a few practice glimpses we hadn't seen yet 🥰:


Dai's arms! :dbana:

You beat me! greengrin.gif

This is a modified version of what they showed at the show and in the livestream yesterday posted by the same user.
You can see a straight line lift before the rotational lift. The RoLi was actually longer and the rotation in the first half was faster.
There are some step sequences, a CCW twizzle, a sliding movement that looks like a finishing pose.

EDIT: Here is another version, which is less processed.

Here's the footage from Sunday's CaOI rebroadcast with Tatsuki Machida's commentary (English subs kindly provided by meowmix :thank:):

^ Lol, S/K are not at all shabby at ice dancing too though.

KanaDai updates! 🥰


Arrival at the venue:


La Bayadere costumes:




Practice footage - they look really good!!! Dai does the straightline lift on one foot and transitions directly to the RoLi! 🤯


How am I going to focus on work today? I'm so excited! :party2:

NBC published a glowing article today:


Love Marina's gushy words, but hope she doesn't jinx them. :wink:


Only 3 days left! :cheer:
Marina's beautiful comments on Daisuke already MADE MY DaY! :love: Thanks a million. :thank:
A tiny bit surprising is she doesn't realize how gorgeous he is until just recently ;), which is many of figure skating fans [I[knew[I/] for more than 10 years or so. :biggrin:

Good luck to Kana & Dai at NHK! :cheer:

Short clip of Kana and Dai practicing their RD this morning:

Pictures:

There's no green face paint, but yellow pants, suspenders and a crazy tie (matching Carrey's in the movie). 😁 Love Kana's dress and ponytail.

This looks like it's gonna be a blast! :cool:


Ganbatte Kana & Dai and, most importantly, try to relax and have fun! :hap10:



ETA:

Here's all three dance teams planned program content:

Well done, Kana and Dai! :clap: It was a great debut and 64.15 is very impressive. They had a huge disadvantage as they made this RD just two months ago while the other two teams skated the same programs from last season. They lost levels and points here and there, but I know they will improve with every performance. In the post performance interview, they said they enjoyed performing and were happy with the score.


I look forward to FD tomorrow. Kenji on NHK commentary said the program suits them very well.
