Thanks. You have to pick harder when I'm beyond the limit of my ability to concentrate.

The 2 now in their 2nd year (both 16).  Goeido came for a visit to his old school and met them in the sumo club. They both want to enter ozumo after graduation (I won't create the thread "New recruits for Haru 2016" yet).
Naya (again on the right) is presently at 183cm, 136kg, Kamatani at 186cm, 137kg.

A few more pictures from Goeido's visit. 2,800 students packed into the main hall for a pep rally for the new Ozeki.

This is so awesome. I hope he can rise further than his grandfathers record (Taiho) as Hakuho looks like he might.

On the TV, it was said that Goeido's second character in his shikona was a tribute to the high-school he went to.
