Its their way to detain, their way to disgrace - their knees in your balls and their fists in your face.

Q: Why is that very large man singing a love song to his iron?

Dudes a legend. That video has been around a while though, so probably a repost.

Yeah Ikioi does amazing enka. The most classically trained out of all of them for sure. Harumafuji is/was also pretty talented, and Kakuryu surprised everyone with a very nice bass voice in the Hakkiyoi video.

Shamelessly nicked from Sumo Forum. I was actually trying to find a video on a jungyo bus where Hakuho starts singing on the bus mic before handing over to Ikioi - if anyone's seen this, please post!

Lol, I watched the Hakkiyoi video today while searching for the above. Oh Lady Gaga...

So, I don't know if anyone in this thread would be familiar with a manga artist called Gengoroh Tagame. He's pretty well known as one of only a few manga creators in Japan who is both openly gay and writes explicity for a gay male audience - most often erotica, but recently also some family dramas. One of his most recent books is 'My Brother's Husband', about a man who must confront his own prejudices when Mike, his estranged and recently deceased twin brother's Canadian husband, comes to pay his respects to the family:


The book has turned out to be unexpectedly popular, enough so that NHK has commissioned a three-part live adaptation to air next month:


You may ask why I'm posting this in the sumo thread. If so, you may want to take a closer look at Mike there.

Huh, that's pretty cool! I've seen that manga mentioned somewhere recently, but had no context for it.

Here he is with Gengoroh Tagame, the mangaka:

I hadn't really known that much about Baruto (beyond his sumo career), but doing some reading, he seems like a super chill dude.

And the Lord said, "Look, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is only the beginning of what they will do; nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them.

He's also fought in MMA and done fairly well in it, beating a few experienced fighters before getting way overmatched against a guy who was a top 5 heavyweight for about a decade. He could probably be a legit professional, except that he would have to drop to 265 lbs.

Baruto has a giggly teddy bear personality so holy poo poo is that a perfect casting. That rocks.

Didn't recognize him at all until you said to take the closer look - just about fell out of my chair.

Got some juicy (if you’re a weirdo traditionalist) first hand gossip for y’all. My wife was at the next station over doing whatever and saw Kisenosato. Apparently he was wearing *SHOCK* A HOODY. NOT VERY YOKOZUNA LIKE!

He was with his wife and kid. Asked that people not take pics, had bodyguards with him.
