Baruto will be starring alongside Santou Ryuuda in a TV adaptation of an LGBT themed manga called "My Brother's Husband" by Gengoroh Tagame. It's about cultural differences in daily life of a family with a single father, his daughter and his brother's husband from Canada.

Just found the manga online :-) http://mangakakalot.com/chapter/otouto_no_otto/chapter_1

This should be filed under off topic, probably in former baruto activities.

not in the ozumo discussion.

To be honest, maybe the other topic I filed the other day about Musashimaru's gyoza restaurant should be there too, I just realized...

No, he is still in the NSK, so it is oyakata activities - and all the former rikishi and similar threads actually don't belong into off-topic, but into "sumo related off-topic", which we still don't have

Baruto had his 2nd tournament at the TBS Downtown Wednesday variety show - I had skipped the first one in December ( youtube-dl www.pandora.tv/view/sbs-tv/55643535/), there will be a 3rd.

Sumo against a bunch of weirdo teams - with a total of up to his weight in the team, now 178kg, with wife and kid watching. In the end against 2 kids teams: The last middle school trio from apparently a freestyle wrestling club (hard to believe that to be still quite young kids) managed to get him out with a perfect team effort, which looked a legit win: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doR2cpd4mSs6t=12m38s -  better: youtube-dl www.pandora.tv/view/sbs-tv/56012784

On another show this week youtube-dl www.pandora.tv/view/sbs-tv/56006028, Baruto talked about how he lost half of his retired money: to one introduced to him by his sister. That guy talked him into joining the car repair business - and disappeared after 6 months with 20 million yen. But now Baruto is gaining big money from the import of tuna from Croatia to Japan.

Today on TV: Baruto's activities, his farm in Estonia, he's the volunteer fire department for the village, and he's campaigning for a seat in parliament (should he get it, we might be seeing less from him as talento on Japanese TV)- elections in Estonia are on March 3rd next year. 6.5 min, starting at 35min: youtube-dl www.pandora.tv/view/themiku/56019447

For this, Baruto returns to Estonia (for longer) on May 5th. The chances of the Estonian (called by Japan a) "national hero"  to get elected are seen as: sure win. His dream for the future now is: president

Baruto has officially quit the job as talento, but will be appearing as one of the "strongest men ever" opponents of AKB48 member Yui Oguri, in the NTV late night drama series "MajiMuri Academy" (maji: really - muri: no way), which starts July 26th. http://www.oricon.co.jp/news/2112609/full/

The recent post here reminded me to check for this, and MioMio has the whole series http://search.miomio.tv/?keyword=マジムリ学園

Baruto appears in episode 4 http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc393209/, with face starting at 19min, as high school student Raizanmaru aiming for the interhigh, with some weird Wagner connection

One and Only went to visit Estonia and Baruto , who showed him around his town and stuff. Really nice seeing him (One and Only) get all sentimental- all in Japanese.

Baruto is called a major contender for the Estonian Centre party in the elections today. Results tomorrow - his party is one of 3 in the government at the moment. http://www.nikkansports.com/general/news/201903030000945.html

Baruto wasn't elected, but one elected member declined his seat to stay mayor and Baruto becomes MP after all. https://news.err.ee/916775/maardu-mayor-passes-riigikogu-seat-on-to-baruto

So it took the Japanese news agencies a whole month to realize that Baruto had made it - as he will start work in  parliament today

A retired sumo wrestler has been elected to Estonia's parliament. Kaido Hoovelson was formerly known as Baruto.

The country's election commission announced on Wednesday that Hoovelson had won a seat in last month's general election...

Would be hard for Goodman to get younger, while DiCaprio gaining weight is just a piece of cake away.
