If only that were the title...

The real title is not that bad, only too long. Just checked my wishlist and found that the book, properly: Furiwake Seiken, 弱虫ロボコップ 「もう一日がんばる」勇気 Weakling Robocop - the courage to "Gambarize one more day", is on sale 2nd hand now for 3Yen (350Yen delivery within Japan, good, another 53Yen and 300Yen delivery, very good - no longer on sale as a new book) - I usually wait till the books are down to this price, but I also have to be eager to read the specific one ...

Terunofuji has a new commercial out on November 1st for Nagatanien, entitled "The Cuddly Panda." Only a photo so far:

202110280000436-w500_0.jpg

The CM is on the Nagatanien site now, no video on the YT channel (yet? only visible in Japan?) https://www.nagatanien.co.jp/enjoy/cm/detail/229/

They didn't use his real voice, but at least not a kids voice like Haribo. No story for this CM, only that Terunofuji appears

Nagatanien has renewed the CM talento contract with Terunofuji in May, he had one for 3 years from 2015-2018

And Terunofuji is back on the list of CM talento as of today, Endo is at no.1 there https://www.nagatanien.co.jp/enjoy/cm/talent_lst/6/

Enho is even co-producer of a mattress, better than Yoshikaze with Magniflex. He tells he's suffering from sleep disorder and that made him join this platinum wave "Hiyaku" Enho version production with the AiAi corporation, that had presented him with this Paralympic kesho mawashi. He now has a contract as image character with them. http://www.kkaiai.com/service/platinum-wave_Hiyaku.html

Enho today got a visit from Koto-san, who designed the new kesho mawashi he has used at the dohyo-iri for the first time on this day 6. Koto-san is an artist sponsored by a support organization due to a development disorder. The organization had set sports as subject for their SOMPO Paralym Art Cup in February. The idea to design and give a kesho mawashi to a rikishi came up, in corporation with a sponsor of Miyagino-beya it led to this one for Enho 炎鵬, the phoenix 鵬 in flames炎

Think you're mixing up his Kyushu basho lodgings for his permanent home base in Ibaraki, which AFAWK isn't completed yet.

Now that you mention it, i completely ignored that "Fukuoka", my bad. Then this must be at least one of the top temporary lodgings ever.

After Nishonoseki individually for CBD oil, Isegahama-beya as a whole has MCT oil connections: with the Sendai Shozankan MCT oil specialist shop: a longer interview with Nishikifuji and one with the heya's special trainer Shinohara

Awful video quality but a nice recollection - sometimes the channel  of the "sumo is yaocho" viper posts something proper. That channel gets deleted often and is reborn later, the video may be short lived: a CM collection with European rikishi, first Takamisakari with Baruto and Hakurozan, Baruto and Kotooshu, later Kotooshu alone. A reminder how popular he was.

The song supporting this CM is "Little Green Bag" by the George Baker Selection, a Dutch group ('natch).   Internet sez it was #1 in Japan in 1991 after appearing in a whiskey commercial.  Can anyone here confirm?

We will raise awareness of the importance of early cancer detection by using N-NOSE.
During the September Grand Sumo Tournament to be held at the Kokugikan this month, N-NOSE will be on display for 15 days, from the first day to the last day of the tournament.

In collaboration with their sponsor, Michinoku-beya today presented, represented by the oyakata and Kiribayama, the "Michinoku-beya poly-phenol plentiful chanko-nabe set" at Nescafe Harajuku. It will be available only there and only from today till the end of the basho. https://www.oricon.co.jp/news/2152679/full/

They have that collaboration for some time now

The new articles say that 3 Nescafe coffee machines have been installed in the heya already in 2015, at the keiko-ba(-ground=, the chanko-ba(-place) and in the room of the shisho.

Kiribayama got a Nescafe kesho mawashi

202001080000503-w200_0.jpgo

 Now Nescafe may be thinking about how they can get Kakuryu for PR.

Nescafe now got Kakuryu-oyakata and the whole NSK for PR - the NSK posted a video of Michinoku-oyakata and now Kirishima with Kakuryu - Nestle is sustainability partner of the NSK now https://sumo.or.jp/Admission/partners
