Araiso yesterday was in ShikokuChuo city, Ehime, to meet with the locals - in proper oyakata attire.

Today he posed as Kisenosato for a talk-show at the kappa matsuri home in Ushiku

but at a summer festival, yukata is formal wear for anybody - so also for oyakata.

One talk-show after the other for Araiso - usually oyakata are eager to appear in public before their danpatsu-shiki to assure a full house - he does it even though he needs not fear a single unsold ticket, regardless of any additional PR.

He talked in the Ibaraki pref. Museum of Modern Art in Mito about the manga hero villain Rao (the one on his kesho mawashi) and the influence on his life

Man, I love these pics! At the same time that I hate to see him not fighting anymore, I love to see him doing so well in this "new" life!

I was never much of a Kisenosato fan. I think that was because he appeared to be uncommunicative much of the time. He hardly ever seemed to smile in public. In the last year of his career, considering the hell he was going through coping with an injury that never fully healed and which hugely affected his performance, that was understandable. But since his retirement, my opinion of him has changed. He has shown a very pleasant personality, communicating extremely well, and above all, often smiling and even laughing. I have come to the conclusion that a rikishi I once didn't care for because he seemed to be so dull and unsociable is actually is a very nice, outgoing person. As I said before, I wasn't a big fan of Kisenosato. I am however, a huge fan of Araiso.

Araiso-oyakata had his final tsuna-uchi today at Tagonoura-beya, the rope for the yokozuna dohyo-iri at his danpatsu-shiki on the 29th
