"Super cool X-mas card by Mika Matsuda (can you spot Kana and Dai?)":
That is a wonderful Christmas Card and shows a tremendous amount of work. I don't really have a good memory for faces but many look familiar. Is Dai almost alone in front of the tree with Kana to his left (our right as we look at the picture). I can recognize Piper and Paul down in the lower right hand corner. Thanks for link, synesthesia.
You're spot on!
Ig update from Dai- and Kana-chan working out in Florida under palm trees sporting the new model of Puma running shoes.
Dai's ig-account (hit the right hand arrow to see them do a variation of their SlLi on land!):
In January they shot this promotional clip for the same shoe model:
アイスダンスで活躍中の２人。Deviate Nitroの第一印象からウォームアップやトレーニングとしての活用方法まで、PUMAの最新機能を搭載したランニングシューズを語る。#RUNPUMA #SPARKCHANGE #この瞬間から #Deviatenitro #誰でも履けるみんなの厚底
This lucky lady met Kana and Dai at the Hertz Arena again (the second to last photo is from last year):
Translation (it's slightly confusing with the personal pronouns here - I'm not quite sure who said or did what re. the last part - maybe mikeko can help? I'm guessing Dai inquired what day it was, because that's what he tends to do when he's asked for an autograph. ):
Recently, Dai-chan and Kana-chan came back from Japan to Florida. I got to watch them practice! I've been waiting for them to come back to Florida. I met them for the first time exactly 1 year ago. I said hello today! And they waved at me! They remembered me. Dai-chan said please come and see us again anytime! And Kana-chan said I can't believe it's been a year already! I was able to watch them for a few hours. They were practicing new moves again! It was so beautiful I can't wait for the announcement! I was able to talk to them during the break. They were eating lunch outside and I asked them for their autograph. He said, "What day is it?" I told him it was the 15th. I wrote "December" by mistake when it was February. Wow, I wrote 12. Sorry! I'm sorry. No problem at all. I love you so much! Thank you so much for your time and help!
