Sumo goods

Recommended Posts

I thought I created such a thread already, but haven't found one - and one here for rikishi and another unrelated in Japan-Japanese discussions may be needed.

Kise is now on the yokozuna cups

This new cup set went on sale yesterday in the kokugikan

Production of goods with pics of Kisenosato in yokozuna outfit is a bit behind, but all that appears sells like hot cakes: some ordered 10 or more sets of the cup. http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/1779597.html

Does the face look more like a fairly young Kotoshogiku than Kisenosato? Perhaps it was designed a while back and the artist was hedging his bets.

Rikishi more or less look the same in nishiki-e style

C5_Ryhjc_Uk_AA_Qp_V.jpg Accurately depicting the new yokozuna :-D

That is very well observed compared to all the other merchandise I've seen, which steadfastly ignores Kise's Vulcan salute. I can only assume the artist is a Trekker.

At last one that I'd like to get in May - a towel showing Kise with the oni kesho-mawashi of Wakanohana I - looking like Endo

And the Kotsurugi designed Japonica sumo note books have Kisenosato varieties now, after the standard ones there were the Hakuho versions. http://www.asahi.com/articles/photo/AS20170228003618.html

note the difference in the mood of the spectators to the old ones:

Another use: New as cover illustration (+info inside) on the 2nd of the Japanese traditional culture series (after kabuki) of the widely used Japonica exercise books (especially for primary school) from Showa-Note - sales start on shonichi, Jan. 10th, in the kokugikan and bookstores.

B5 format

there are 3 information pages about sumo, 1 each at the start, middle and end.

All illustrations are by Kototsurugi http://news.mynavi.jp/news/2015/12/16/397

And now a Hakuho version - instead of "sumo" with "69th yokozuna Hakuho" written on the cover

I might have used the hype rikishi thread - I had to expand it to others after some replies - but even though there is now a massive Kise hype, I don't want to put him with the plain hype rikishi who have yet to accomplishment something.

One of the new goods after the other is already sold out at the kokugikan shop: http://shop.kokugikan.jp/

- the bag, the very special cup - the Kisenosato list still shows the old goods, one has to look for new items on the main page.

Might be something for sumo trivia, but it's not trivial: the immediate positive economic effect of having the new Japanese yokozuna Kisenosato is calculated to be 2248.56 million yen for the next 12 months, mainly for selling Kise related goods - about 1011 million yen for other companies (esp. food) and 1238 million for the NSK, rise in ticket sales included, esp. jungyo and a bit room for more sales is at regional basho. http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/1790002.html

At the basho Kise goods of course sold best, also chanko restaurants nearby were packed. The Japonica note books were especially popular: the shop who sold Kototsurugi design goods had ordered 3000: 650 were sold on day 1, on day 6 they had to limit sales to 1 per person and on the last day Kise's mother couldn't get one - sold out - but she was content: "If it is so that my son is loved by all the people, I'm happy." http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/economy/20170328-OYT1T50072.html

The whole first shipping by the publisher Showa Note was sold out, they printed a 2nd and announced to deliver them this week. http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20170329/sum17032905030001-n1.html

Now called Kisenomics - his effect on the economy - revised after his miracle yusho: to 3486.24 million yen. http://www.j-cast.com/2017/04/02294574.html?p=all
