Narutobeya -- Torakio missing?

Recommended Posts

Narutobeya's website is up and running the daily chanko pictures, etc. (dark since April 3rd).  They posted two pictures in the last week, one of the banzuke pointing and one today of practice in the new facilities.  One rikishi missing: Torakio.  Was he getting groceries? Was he off on a trip home?  Did he leave sumo?  No explanation.

What a coincidence. Couldn't spot him, too. And he is missing in this video from 27.04.

After EGLM @Kintamayama sensei posting this

almost a month ago, i think we can assume he's out. Can we assume his absence is linked to this and if only because he just got enough of the lifestyle?

Not listed on the new heya website, no pre-basho twitter video like all the other Naruto beya rikishi have, kyujo for day 1.....definitely out of sumo.

Also, 2 managers: 1) Atsushi Narita (ex-Kotoninsei, Sadogatake, H.R. Ms51), the original manager; 2) Daigo Emoto (ex-Kotodaishin, Sadogatake, H.R. Ms45), added after the Sumidagawa affair for extra snoopervision.  Both overlap Kotooshu's time at Sadogatake -- ex- tsukebito maybe?   Currently 12 rikishi, no Torakio.
