Today is the Winter Solstice, so the darkest or shortest day of the year will be gone.  Maybe should also pray hard on 1 Jan 01:01 for his health and recovery, and his getting back no. 1 that he wants

For us up north it is the darkest, shortest day, but in places like Argentina and Australia in the southern hemisphere it's the longest, brightest day.  Things get reversed come next June so everything balances out in the end.

I'm here to ask about this exactly. I believe some measurements have been done in various shows (data man, the one where they say he has to jump 17cm higher aka length of his hair), but are those reliable...?

I am not sure how reliable these data are because in all cases, (Data-man, Sunday Station, (the news show calculated the height and distance required for a 4A) Ice scope) they didn't go into details about how they measure jumps. They probably think that viewers don't care much about such things but it would be fascinating if there is a program which analyses the physics of figure skating, wouldn't it?

Do we know who is covering worlds?  Asahi seems to cover the internationals but not 100% sure?

Fuji will cover Worlds, though I'm not sure if they can use ice scope when they cover ISU competitions because they will have to use ISU footage mostly. At Jnats they can decide when to announce the scores considering the timing of the commercial breaks but they won't have much freedom when airing ISU championships.

Actually, I'm not sure where I saw it, but it was on one of those more extended documentaries on Yuzu, that Yuzu is using some of what he's learning at university to do just exactly that.  He was putting together mathematical formuli that describe the dynamics of jumping.

For those who have not been following the activity at the Japanese Nationals, probably because Yuzu isn't there, the results after the short program are very intriguing.  At the top, with a commanding lead, is Shoma.  Expected.  In second, not expected but certainly not beyond belief, is Daisuke.  If you see things as I see them, things at Worlds this year could be very interesting if you have the first time ever Daisuke , Shoma and Yuzu are face to face in a competition.  That, of course, is subject to who JSF sends to Worlds, but with the competition being held in Japan the sending of those three would guarantee standing room only in the men's events and TV ratings that go through the roof.

Yes if those three would go to worlds the ratings would for sure go through the roof but at first dai has to go to an international competition or he can not go to worlds but we will see what happens

But in order for Dai to go to World's, he'd have to meet the minimum qualifying TES, which he doesn't have right now. Which would mean he,'d have to go to 4CC with a revamped program to get it.

OT

To go to 4CC he also need a minimum TES. So no, Daisuke won't go to Worlds, unless he surprise everyone by going to some small comp in January, and that's very unlikely. Also it's very unlikely JSF would assign a skater who doesn't have minimum TES at the moment.

I think this was Dai’s farewell in Japan and I’m glad he got the opportunity.  I think not having the spotlight, Shoma did well too so win-win.  If you watched JNats- banners for DISK were crazy.

He can’t compete internationally based on TES unless he has at least one consistent quad IMO. 

 

Spoiler

I know this is unrealistic and in the past but bear with me.

 

In my own naive way, I wish he would have passed the torch to Yuzu.  Possibly stopped the rumored booing at 2012 nationals, gave him a hug, said more positive things in public about him after he won at Sochi so his fans were more accepting. Then again- takes two to tango and I certainly don’t know details - but talking about fighting fandoms after 2 OGMs seems nuts.
