I wonder if RoboCop is still single? Or has he secretly registered his marriage and has a child on the way like quite a few others seem to do in the sumo world. I'm sorry for the gossip speculation but most things are so hush, hush in the world of sumo. Kind of like most recently - Osunaarashi.

A web-only CM that shows all past and present present campaigns of Nagatanien with Endo.

Endo has "cha"=(green-)tea as special strong point at the Abema TV rikishi display (for which Kakuryu has gentleness, Chiyomaru belly and Tochinoshin natto): that is the cha in Nagatanien's "o-cha-zuke", for which he does the CMs.

Naruto-oyakata is on the poster for a fanjacket - not one for the sumo fans - an air conditioned jacket https://www.bildy.jp/mag/suns-fanjacket-setup/

fc141733732cbea0d0deabde01981ba9.jpg

For the Moushou-basho - locations of extreme heat - so just now - he did this activity already in February

But walking around with such a jacket in the heat makes one look like Taka

Osh is the 2018 image character for SunS corporation - but only ads, no CMs so far

also for working wear

It seems like I could avoid overheating in a jacket, by not wearing a jacket...

Tochinoshin today was guest at the YANASE gratitude get-together and set his eyes on a Mercedes G550: "Cool. I want one. Can't drive though." He had a talk-show with Tochiozan and Aoiyama there.

Tochinoshin appears at one product presentation after the other, after cars and yogurt, now the one closest to him: Georgia coffee.

In addition to the one from Emerald coffee, Tochinoshin gets another kensho on each bout from Georgia coffee (Coca Cola Japan) for the new brand presented today: "Georgia grand low sugar" - he was at the presentation with the actor who will appear in the CMs

He gave the actor Takayuki Yamada his "iron claw" tegata as a present

According with wikipedia, this Georgia Coffee is from the USA's state of Georgia and not Georgia the country. Isn't this kind of cheating?

He was trying for years to get Coca Cola to connect Georgia coffee (their best selling product in Japan) to his Georgia - with his success they gladly jumped on the bandwagon.

HQ videos of the whole appearance of Tochinoshin at the event

just 2 minutes ago embedding worked - now again it won't

Edit: apparently it doesn't work with a new post, but might work when you edit it

And now, the commercial:

Araiso-oyakata at his first CM appearance - like once Kotooshu, for the Softbank Shirato-family - he's a clerk in a shopping district selling lottery tickets - the family wins  the family tour to New York.  - the father (the dog) doesn't like it, the others are enthusistic - Araiso: "I'll fill in and go"  - father: "What are you saying!" http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/201903090000490.html

Takakeisho since June is in an advertising campaign for Calbee potato chips https://www.calbee.co.jp/newsrelease/190618.php

He had kensho from Calbee at the basho - but let's hope he won't get a chips kesho mawashi

Like his kensho numbers show, Takakeisho is the most popular rikishi for the sponsors. Today he chipped in an event for Calbee

I'm afraid he won't be able to avoid to get a kesho mawashi as well next year - likely like this

What is the derivation of "Calbee"?  The L sound is a surprise, especially for a Japanese company that's been around since the 40's.  Also, it reminds me of "Kalbi", Korean marinated ribs.  Does anyone know where this name comes from?
