That chiyosakae smile is nice to see ! After such a long grind to get there, he can enjoy the moment

It's probably his age, but somehow Ōshōma already looks like he's been sekitori for a while. He has a very... mature look in the banzuke photo.

Well, he's 25 and a college grad, so ...

For all these college guys, the good news is they are more mature than your average 17-year-old.  The bad news is they are 5-7 years older than your average 17-year old (Delgerbayar had to spend an extra year hanging out in the heya, because foreigners with degrees from Japanese Universities might start slaughtering sheep in the heya unless they are taught proper manners.:-()

Ok then it's not the age? Like Chiyosakae is 32 and somehow looks like a slightly overgrown kid who's been allowed to stay up late from now on, whereas Ōshōma has a lot more gravitas about him.

Different wrestlers have different personalities. I can only assume that Oshouma, being a university sumo star is already used to the attention. 

Chiyosakae, being older and having toiled for over 12 years to finally earn a salary, is probably over the moon with happiness.

I think that would be fair to say, judging by the pictures on the day of the announcement. Go down nearly to the bottom of the post.
