    Kyujo Updates - 2024 Natsu

    Thanks for the article! It says no plan to reenter so demotion to sekiwake confirmed. Kyujo is due to neck and other pain which also troubled him last basho. Kakuryu/Otowayama says that return to ozeki will not be easy, but from now until next basho they'll focus firstly on healing.

    Guess Ura's Aite - May 2024 edition

    Kiri's out as of tonight. I switched to Hoshoryu because it was on the minute of the deadline, but I have no idea if it's correct.

    Also, I have to announce my intai from this game. Ever since I got my new job a year ago I haven't been able to put in the necessary analysis to do this well. Even getting to post in time is a struggle. I've been meaning to do this before the basho, but I just haven't had the time. I also need to reduce my stress levels for my own health, and so I've cut back on games dramatically. I want to watch the sumo and enjoy without worrying if I am right or not. I do not regret leaving now. I have achieved many good things in this game (I leave you the gift of the even day) and I'm always here if anyone needs to bounce an idea off me. East Yokozuna Sakura

    Assuming Kirishima stays in for the whole basho, which is unlikely, it wouldn't be a surprise to get Hoshoryu-Onosato as late as Day 10 or even 11. I wasn't surprised by the S-S. It was the most logical intra-sanyaku matchup to make on Day 7.

    Kyujo Updates - 2024 Natsu

    I've heard a rumour that Kirishima is (unsurprisingly) kyujo, but i haven't found a source to back it up. Anyone else?

    Yeah, no need to. Kintamayama already did that in today's video.

    Kotoeko intai. Now Oguruma-oyakata

    He was my favorite. Such untamed energy. Always fighting head on. To me always was more inspiring than small rikishi who relied more on cunning techniques.

    Kirishima has become ozumo's Steph Curry. When he plays badly, he is injured; when he scores 50 points, he is O'K.

    New kesho mawashi

    Atamifuji today used a new kawaii kesho mawashi he got before the basho from Atami Onsen, 3 tourism related organizations http://www.atamispa.com/news/897 o it shows their PR character Atsuo (Atami is written atsui umi) and the Atami geisha union official mascot Mamekko https://www.atami-geigi.jp/mamekko.html

    Ura started the basho wrestling rikishi he has a good record against. Soon, his opponents will all be sanyaku or top Maegashira (Daieisho, Atamifuji, Gonoyama); this will be the real test.

    Damn, no Takarafuji zensho yusho Btw, this was the first time since 2017.03 he started with 5-0 and only the second time in his whole sekitori career. 2017.03 ended in a 7-8 after he lost the next 6 bouts.

    I didn't see it but you're not alone, dingo mentioned it yesterday. Really surprised to see how easily Onosato dealt with Kotozakura, quite a similar ending to his batch with Kirishima but no doubt about the result this time.

    It's perfectly reasonable to think they'll get the S-S match in between the remaining O-K matches, and I'm surprised more people didn't guess that way (and if someone hadn't by the time I had guessed, I might have). Now the question is - are they going to treat Abi like a Komusubi like they did on Day 2, or are they going to finish the O-K matches before going to O-S matches? 8. Kirishima

    Am I the only one who thinks Kotozakura stepped out first only a few bouts later?
