Minor nitpick - the move Mainoumi pulls doesn't seem to be a hatakikomi, but something more of a hineri or katasukashi?

 Since we're picking nits, Konishiki seems to say 'chomange' instead of 'chonmage'. Obviously he knows what's correct but I wonder if that particular metathesis is common.

Looks like Katasukashi to me:

There's an article about a new sumo book in the german SPIEGEL, sadly it's behind a paywall.

https://www.spiegel.de/sport/sumo-buch-von-lord-k2-sumokaempfer-sind-sehr-maskuline-charaktere-ich-konnte-das-testosteron-riechen-a-af17da46-5e03-458c-88c1-51d2841a3681

The title translates to "Sumo wrestlers are very masculine characters, i could smell the testosterone."

The article is about a new sumo book and the author (Lord K2) of the book shares some photos on his website.

The book is available on Amazon for a decent price and from what i see on Amazon and the website, this is a sure buy for me, when it's published in march.

It's quite apparent what the photographer tried to capture in each of those pics, but the results are all a bit lacking IMO.

And that's what? I think there are some nice snapshots, very natural.

Snapshots, alright, but I'd rather buy a photo book by John Gunning for instance.
