New kesho mawashi (pics)

Recommended Posts

Masunoyama (21) got a new kesho mawashi from his local koenkai with the image character of his home town Chiba, Sakae-cho, the dream dragon mascot Drum/Doramu: D(o)ra<gon><Drea>m(u). The source is that during the Nara period, when the town suffered from a drought, the legend tells that a dragon rose to the sky and let it rain (which is the profession of the Asian dragons).
Masunoyama: "Following this, I want to rise up the banzuke. I want to reach sanyaku." He will rise up to the upper half of maegashira next basho (w13 with 11 wins). "I will meet strong opponents, therefore I want to do my sumo with all my strength."

The pics of many Sekitori on the Kyokai's homepage has been updated. Finally, Yokozuna Hakuho is not shown anymore with the Kesho-Mawashi of fromer Yokozuna Yoshibayama,a out of Miyagino-beya. (After 5 years!!) The Kesho-Mawashi Hakuho he is wearing there seems to be brand new. As far as I know it's his 8th Kesho-Mawashi-Set as Yokozuna!

I love this guy. Brazilian fans go crazy about "Lungie". I'm straight up 100% Masunoyama fan club!

And that is a sweet outfit also!

More of the Doramu kesho mawashi for Masunoyama. With the good performance in the Nagoya-basho, the number of koenkai members (indivdual, corporations and associations) rose from about 110 to 200.

Wow, you weren't kidding. 66 new pics! Even for some rikishi like Kokkai or Miyabiyama who hadn't had an update in nearly 10 years...

Can somebody identify the sponsors and give some informations about the Kesho-Mawashi with the Kabuki motive?

I can't say more except that some blatant googling gives the information that カネカQH is this, apparently a nutritional supplement with the ever popular Q10 coenzyme (but then again, everything I wrote might be wrong).

Kokkai's picture was updated at least once, but it always was with the same k-mawashi, despite he have four different pieces.

That's a really buff red oni. Hmmm, Oniarashi... is "demon storm" an unusual wrestler name?

Hmm, apparently the Kyokai were as flabbergasted as I was, his profile pic has been rolled back to the old one. I've replaced the image link above.

The first kesho-mawashi for Dakiho from his university Nichidai.

Hakuho, who scouted him and was present at the ceremony - rare for a yokozuna, expects him to go through juryo in one basho.

Daikiho gets 4 kesho-mawashi, a rare number for a new juryo.

About 200 people at the juryo promotion party in the kokugikan.

Hakuho: "He gives the heya a good mood, his keiko is passionate, I think living up to expectations and becoming yokozuna, ozeki would be fine."

From his Tottori Johoku high school, Nichidai, the koenkai of the heya and from broadcast writer Osamu Suzuki, on friendly terms with Hakuho. The last will show the hi-no-tori (fire-bird/phoenix), central work of manga artist Osamu Tezuka.

Hakuho with talento artist Tsurutaro Kataoka after the soken, in the sumo museum. Kataoka will design a set of kesho-mawashi for Hakuho, to be ready next spring. It will be presented by the new Hakuho Nagoya koenkai, formed in July.

Looks like the Kyokai have decided to overhaul the rikishi picture style on their site for the first time in over a decade. The white half-frame and the shikona inset are gone:

20010035.jpg

25 of the new pictures are currently viewable in the rikishi profiles on sumo.goo. The new pics for the other 45 current sekitori are already posted in a "secret" location though and will probably replace the remaining old-style images before long, too.

Well, he seems to take of this by himself as he is well on track to update himself out of sekitori status and most likely ending his career as well.
