The Hatsu poster is out, and it's a pretty interesting composition: Terunofuji, this basho's sanyaku, and a smattering of other maegashira including popular Ura and Endo. 

Feels somewhat Warhol-like to me, without the funky colours.

The artistic composition point are the mummy knees 2 in the midle on top and below, connected in 」shape by the dark mawashi 3 with the bandaged left knee.

I see they've gone with the Ground-type gym, per usual. It won't give either Terunofuji (fighting type) or Pikachu (electric type) an advantage due to terrain, so it's a respectable choice. Kind of cool that the last pic previews the Ryōgoku Kokugikan Gym badge.

Dohyo-making clip: A universal workplace scene – three guys doing work while eight guys stand around and watch. 

A minor breach of etiquette, though, as no one was carrying a "Kurippubōdo".

Mita with his not so official ozeki run has some steam. Isegahama says the judging department may consider if he goes zensho

https://www.nikkansports.com/m/battle/sumo/news/202201070000478_m.html?mode=all

Reading the story (disclaimer: google translate version), he seemed to say that a zensho would definitely do it, but wouldn't commit to a numerical target otherwise?

Probably setting the unrealistic goal on purpose to see if he's really going to be motivated to go all out

Someone should direct Isegahama to the Ridiculous Predictions thread.
