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/

A longer version of that interview was on another show last week - The statement X  https://www.ntv.co.jp/hatsugenx/

http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc426341/

to prepare for the sequel today: https://www.ntv.co.jp/hatsugenx/articles/220w6s5zinpj0lj2h41.html

Taka hinted that he'd like to mend the broken relations to mother and brother, and presented his picture book, in collaboration with this IronFist illustrator guy 鉄拳_(お笑い芸人)

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.

Takatoriki had recently told on a wide show that Taka had earlier thought about going into politics and then changed his mind: "I think now he won't enter anymore."

Taka won't be there for the elections, he's lecturing at a university in the US then.

But to follow Suzuki in the post of sports secretary, he doesn't have to go into politics, the successor can be selected from a member of the public.

The LDP  plans are guessed to have Suzuki run at the elections and when he retires from his post at the sports agency, have Taka get the office.

The impersonator may not be able to do shiko to the same level as Takanohana but he certainly wears the scarves well...

Takanohana made a jump to 30 million yen in the ranking of male entertainer CM earnings in Japan. The only there with more than 100 million is Tommy Lee Jones  - who plays an alien in the Suntory BOSS CM series for 13 years now ("The inhabitants of this planet are ...") - he is the only Hollywood star still remaining in CMs in Japan. Top Japanese earner with 80 million at no. 2 is Masaharu Fukuyama.

Takanohana is a new entry at joint rank 43, 30 million yen for one contract, expected earnings included.

Takanohana is apparently  a regular in a new talk program: New-Japanese-boys and Nakai - the host - whose name means hostess. Taka was not the one to talk much - he's neither guest nor co-host, but - something new. http://www.miomio.tv/watch/cc434161/

The complete press conference

he emphasized again that he won't run at the elections, because he's in NY in July - but he might enter the government un-elected:

Taka for the first time after intai has a stand-alone CM appearance - as image character for the furunavi site https://furunavi.jp/c/cm2019, to navigate through the furusato/hometown tax system: divert taxes to your hometown and get local goods and produce.

he forgets a (other CM: used the wrong) part of the last character for the site name and then says it instead of showing it as calligraphy

making of with 2 CMs in front

here will be more, as the pics from the presentation today indicate, where he wrote cho for challenge - NNN news video with interview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TuSiYH-5sio

Longer interview from JIJI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsIaU00E-sI

He's one in the focus in the TV Tokyo video from the "interview" with the supporters of the 2019 JA Chibilympics - but you don't hear him talking much https://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/sports/articles/2019/06/004675.html

Taka was on a local Kansai program today - to tell what is truth and what is lie about the Taka legend and what was shameful

I was sent a text that has informed me that Takanohana will be at Mitsuwa in Torrance, California on Oct 12 & 13 for the Matsuri event that is being sponsored by local magazine Weekly LaLaLa. Is anybody else in the area for that?

The attached link doesn't have him as a guest yet, but I'm hoping that this is true!
