    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

    An interview from the 2012 NHK Trophy featuring Yuzuru Hanyu, Daisuke Takahashi and Takeshi Honda, the three musketeers of men's figure skating in Japan It's a rare sight.

    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.

    Just the same surname I think. Honda is a common name just like Kalina says.
    I couldn't find any info on Miyu + her 4 siblings' father except that he is an ordinary "salaryman".
    Takeshi is only 33 years old so I imagine he is too young to be the father of Miyu's big brother Taichi who is 15 and I don't even know if he's the eldest.

    Denis Ten loves children very much!! When I saw him last year I thought he looked a little bit old, but now I think he looks young for his age.
    Honda's kids are cute!

    Random observation but is there a reason why Yuzuru, Mao, Kanako and Taka all use the same sort of blades?

    Are they sponsored by the company? I think I've seen other junior skaters use similar blades

    I am not sure about sponsoring, but PChan and Yuzuru use same kind of boot, though: http://www.edeaskates.com/
