YT has only crap videos of the show, pandora takes time, so I don't know yet if those are full screen videos

to look for videos of it at various sites https://variety.freedoga.com/second-layer.php?id=51409

MioMio is usually the best, now that youtube-dl gets it: http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc404871/

Taka is quite hilarious in that show - start at 5:37m

best quality: http://www.pandora.tv/view/gogoucc/56620136/

from 4:20 to 1:03:40

The show had TV ratings of 15.2%, up 2.5% from last week http://www.sponichi.co.jp/entertainment/news/2018/10/30/kiji/20181030s00041000111000c.html

Taka did not become Koji Hanada after all - Takanohana is what everybody will keep calling him, and he in the show confirmed it - just not -oyakata anymore. The wide shows even call him still/again oyakata though (skipping the former-), and today NiTele's Miyane-ya after Takanoiwa had a long corner about the show yesterday, with his mother as guest http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc405005/

http://news.walkerplus.com/article/167278/

at a similar show in 2013

I expanded the scope of the thread to Waka.

Taka as guest of the coal mining festival in Tagawa (his traditional Kyushu location) announced that he will be both Takanohana and Koji Hanada

Many wideshows today reported in detail on Taka at the coal mining festival in Tagawa - work as tourist ambassador for the city, esp. Goody (-2:25h), Sukkiri (47-69m), Vivit (-13m), Miyane-ya (2:20h-2:31h), GogoSmile (3:11h-3:35h) and 5m. on NSta.

Taka has gained 10kg since he retired from the NSK. Today is the farewell party for him of his Kyushu koenkai.

People are are reported as thinking about ways to interest him into going into politics.

The rikishi took part in the overall dance - NHK vid.: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/lnews/kitakyushu/20181105/5020001891.html

That appears to haven been incorrect - at that point she already was his ex-wife

2 hours ago, Kintamayama said:

And now, Takanohana (46) is getting divorced (already divorced?)  from his 54 year old wife Akiko (Hiroko?).  "Yes, it's true. He didn't tell me the exact details, but it probably stems from each of them having a career of their own for many years," said a friend. He has been living at the heya (while it was there..) lately and she had her own place and they have been separated for quite some time now. They were married in May of 1995. Their son was born a few months later. They seemed to be happy and she took great care of him during his year of absence due to that knee injury. After his retirement and the establishment of the heya she became the okamisan and was quite devoted to her job. These last few years rumors of problems between them had surfaced and were denied. He even uploaded a photo of them together smiling at a restaurant to his home page. Even as recently as three weeks ago, a photo from a festival of both of them looking friendly was posted. It turns out they were already divorced by then.  The news of the divorce broke a day after the basho, probably at Takanohana's request, says the reporter.

On 28/09/2018 at 18:20, Akinomaki said:

And all kinds of rumors fill the article lists: Onomatsu put the pressure on him, financial problems, he (his son as well) one step away from divorce

49 minutes ago, Akinomaki said:

Taka apparently handed in the divorce papers on the 25th last month: his comment: We wanted to graduate from being a couple

I thought I can catch up with things by now, but Taka provided again more than 100 new articles today

His live appearance was on Sukkiri

but of course all wide shows report the divorce - the full interview text: http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/201811270000319.html

Apart from his son (23), whom he criticized for his TV appearances at HIS recent TV appearance ("Make shoes!") and who had "celebrated" his mum on his blog the past month(s), he has one 18y old daughter studying abroad and a 2nd 16y old daughter - both still below age 20 and thus so far safe from the media.

The wide shows are down to 10min on Vivit today - but the tabloids will post rumors about the future of the divorced couple each day.

Taka: Olympic guest commentator in 2020?

if he appears, ratings of the program are guaranteed to go up - Sukkiri (8-10:25 NiTele) on Tuesday went from 4.5% on Monday to 5.4% (with a 4 weeks average of 4.2%) http://www.nikkansports.com/entertainment/news/201811280000357.html

Taka as usual does not come out of the (now just his private) heya to speak with the press - about Takanoiwa. He had commented somehow though about the "traitor".

The timing of his divorce apparently was determined by his 2nd 16y old daughter also going abroad for studies - the first 18y old was already studying in the US for a while. He did wait till she left home end of September.

http://www.news-postseven.com/archives/20181207_818974.html

Taka is furious about his son's sloppy work as shoemaker - several claims by customers were reported - and wants him to concentrate on that - mother Keiko  景子 (her Kei- is the -kei- in Takakeisho) thinks it fine that her son should earn a living as TV personality.

I will just use this thread now also for shoemaker Hanada - from the not rikishi thread:

On 29/04/2017 at 14:26, Akinomaki said:

he is dating A.ko Yagi (22), the daughter of ex-Fujinoshin, Jinmaku-oyakata of Kokonoe-beya, Takasago-ichimon of Hakkaku-rijicho.

On 31/10/2017 at 15:20, Akinomaki said:

Obviously Yuuichi didn't have a girlfriend because he already was married. Yesterday Hanada mentioned it on his radio show "BTW, I am married" - and claimed that his wife is just a member of the public, but apparently it is the daughter of Jinmaku.

Like rumored all the way, it has now become known that Taka's son (23) followed the family tradition

Married in January last year, reported as separated this August.

Customers claim that shoes don't arrive, he was attached to the (performance arts-) geinou-office of a friend of his mother, but was dismissed in September because of continuous troubles (also a family tradition).

Taka on the other hand: "I still think of my daughter-in-law as my daughter. The feeling of love for her and her family (Jinmaku-oyakata) is greater than before." (maybe he'll sever relations with his son instead)

Today he was at the National Diet at the Sports Integrity forum https://sportsintegrity.jp/, which is derived from a project team of a multiparty sports diet members caucus, established after recent scandals in all kinds of sports organizations.

He wasn't registered and just took part as a surprise - power harassment was the focus there. He didn't answer to the questions by reporters afterwards.

Power harassment is the Japanese term for "bad bosses / abuse of authority" that is commonly used these days.

https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2018/07/30/national/social-issues/taking-workplace-bullying-japan-horns-power-harassment-prevention-education/

Like the violence / guidance conundrum, it has been an issue of intense interest the last several years.

Today the 4h special of Shabekuri 007 - the great announcements of Taka's interview with Setouchi Jakucho  (where he tells it all - again) led to less than half an hour for that - as to be expected, in 2 parts, 1h26m-1h36m and 2h29m-2h45m in the video http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc414592/

Taka now has a page on their site: https://megu-ent.jp/takanohana/

He has the special group "Specialist" on their list https://megu-ent.jp/actor-list/ - the others are really actor/artist

Not much about the basho in the wide shows - but Taka with plenty each day. He said more than 100% no to politics and keeps denying that he'll be in the elections, but the media remind us that ex-governor/mayor Hashimoto for Osaka said 20 000% no and then won the elections some days later. Viking hinted that the sports secretary will change into another post and that ideal position for Taka (above Hakkaku) would be just waiting for him.

He handed out chanko at event for kids on the 11th in Koriyama, Fukushima - as usual for revival after the 3/11 disaster
