For the first time, we have a foreign rikishi starting a blog. It's Kotooushuu. In the mean time there's just a homepage, but he intends to start writing after Natsu basho. The reason for starting this blog-his wish to strengthen his ties with his fans. "It will be difficult doing it during a basho, so I hope to start after the basho, and in Japanese. Using some software, I may even manage to write some kanji. I will eagerly anticipate the fans' reactions..", he said. His thoughts on sumo and some private pictures will be included in his blog.
Today, the second time kadoban rikishi had some fierce keiko with Kotomitsuki and is looking very healthy. "All right now!", was his first message.
URL? Not in the article..

Without seeing the original I wonder if this is meant to be one of the items Doraemon uses? (どこでもドア)

Without presuming, I'm pretty sure it is..

Thanks, Kintamayama!

I knew he liked net surfing, so I wondered why he didn't have a blog. Then again, I don't have a blog.

For those who don't know Doraemon, his "dokodemodoa" is a door that opens to where ever you want it to.

Oshu would likely use it to take trips to Canada to see his brother and Bulgaria to see his mom without asking the kyokai for permission. Maybe, he could use it to go to Emerald City and ask the wizard for some courage too. Zing!

Thanks again!!

What would you consider his favorite drink to be? Beer? Did he down a lot of Goldstars while he was visiting?

Oh, very good, sir. Knowledge of local beers... He favored the water-colored but not water type, although it was in the boundaries of good taste. I have a video of him easily downing a bottle in two gulps, and not being bothered.

You will probably have to await a post to reply. There is seemingly no link for e-mails now.

Don't ask me why the pictures do not work. The link changes after clicking in posting this. Maybe some security thing that nobody can post the pix?
For the pictures, please visit the blog. I give up...

Thanks for translating and letting us know there's some content there.

BTW, does anyone know if the fish are sea bream? I love (to eat) sea bream...

And it's not just sake... it's Ozeki Sake!

Ok, I HAD to download (GIF (256 colors) image with a granular aspect); expand to 2x; then pass a gaussian blur filter (3,0) and shrink again to 1920x1280 size.

Hope you like the result. (click the image to render the original size's on a new window)

Can also be done more or less directly this way and that way. Comes out unfiltered and a bit yucky, but it does handle GIF files.

 I think I may be indecisive.

No, there was something wrong with the pictures that Asysanyama had to fix as he explained. They were unaccountably GIFs, a format not designed for photographs and virtually guaranteed to make them look bad.
