NHK Trophy Men's and Ladies Results
Daisuke Takahashi landed his first successful quad flip attempt in the 6 minute warmup before his freeskate. (Above is a slow mo clip of it)
He didn't land his quad flip attempt in his freeskate, but he still won NHK by nearly 25 points after a dazzling program. His spins are showing a lot of improvement, his skating skills (which, in my opinion, were already very good) are better than ever, and his jumps are looking easier.
Men's Freeskate Results
Akiko Suzuki held off Mao Asada to win by less than two points overall after the latter won the freeskate with a better performance than she's given in some time and one that should give her and her fans hope for this season.
