    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    Meisei has that great tachiai. He reminds me of Myogiryu, who, when he gets it right, is unstoppable from the off. If or when he learns to control himself from there, he will make ozeki for sure. Asanoyama is the next yokozuna. ;)

    What is the criteria you have used for the "Oracle Projections" on Day 2? Not complaining or criticizing in any way. Just curiosity. PS: Also nothing to do with me being on last place on Day 2

    I believe that their Hakuho-Asanoyama match, which I find rather odd, was intended to let them be able to do all the intra-Komusubi matches on Days 4, 5, and 6 instead of spreading them around more when they had to do 3 intra-sanyaku matches per day. 4. Abi

    Women in sumo? Around the world and in Japan

    Little Miss Sumo - a new film is out on Netflix Maybe the shinto crew should throw back a few nihonshu and just go wild and try to embrace a modern perspective? One can accept change without completely giving up on tradition. Women are human beings. They should probably have the same rights as men, IMO. Regardless of the dissenters among us, I still think it's cowardly to do anything else.

    Day 2: SCS Standings: 1. Tsuchinoninjin 204 2. ScreechingOwl 195 3. Athenayama 186 4. Kishikaisei 183 5. Kotononami 180 6. Kitakachiyama 174 7. Haidouzo 168 7. Holleshoryu 168 9. Hakase 165 10. DeRosa 162 10. Gansekiiwa 162 Oracle Projections: 1. Sakura 621 2. Gansekiiwa 619 2. pandaazuma 619 2. Wamahada 619 5. Frinkanohana 618 5. Kishikaisei 618 5. Ryoshishokunin 618 8. Golynohana 615 9. Tsuchinoninjin 614 10. Choshu-yuki 613 10. Haidouzo 613 10. Mmikasazuma 613 The Kyushu Masters have taken their usual turn. But see for yourself... 1. Pandaazuma 90.83(!) (leads in OBG and UDH, co-lead in Paper Oyakata, tied for 2nd in Oracle) 2. ScreechingOwl 48.80 (lead in Tippspiel, 2nd in Salarycap Sumo) 3. reeeen 41.89 (lead in Odd Sumo, co-leads in Paper Oyakata and Quad) 4. Gansekiiwa 41.36 (co-lead in TTT, tied for 2nd in Oracle, 3rd in Odd Sumo) 5. Tsuchinoninjin 38.46 (lead in Salarycap Sumo, 2nd in Hoshitori) 6. Kobashi 37.58 (co-lead in Quad, 3rd in GTB) 7. Athenayama 36.58 (tied for 2nd in RotoSumo, 3rd in Salarycap Sumo) 8. Asashosakari 34.23 (leads in Juryo Game) 9. Chelseayama 34.17 (leads in RotoSumo, 3rd in UDH) 10. Norizo 29.76 Of course, no graph is big enough to capture that Panda from Outer Space. I had to set the limit of the graph to 350 points (which, do not forget, actually means 450 points for the Panda)... Pandaazuma (423.11) has eclipsed his ambitious goal of reaching 400 points with frightening ease. Next year he will probably aim for 500 points. Haidouzo (199.25) dipped below the 200 points mark. Norizo (171.37) in 3rd and Gonzaburow (159.88) in 4th have stabilized a bit. chishafuwaku (148.99) again defends 5th place with a nice upward movement. Apart from the Peerless Panda, Kotononami (147.17) was one of today's winners, jumping into 6th place. 7th to 12th place are separated by 4.5 points, and feature Andoreasu (7th, 142.15), ScreechingOwl (8th, 140.55), DeRosa (9th, 140.11), Golynohana (10th, 139.64), Ganzohnesushi (11th, 139.19), and Asashosakari (12th, 137.65).

    Agreed, either I've missed the hype train or Meisei seems seriously underated. He executed his plan perfectly in not allowing Endo that inner/front grip (forgive my ignorance of terms) that he's been favouring lately, then guiding him out. Great sumo, I'd wager he'll be in the upper ranks for a while.

    Looked like Tomokaze's kneecap ended up on the side of his knee, looks bad and is painfull but is not a career threatening if it is so.

    Looks good for Asanoyama - he has joined the leaders in the race for most wins of the year, but an even better omen is the total collapse of the top 3 ranks. This is only the 2nd time in the permanent 15 days per basho era since Natsu 1949 that all sekiwake and above still at the basho lost on one day. The last time was day 11 of the Natsu basho - with the 1st yusho of Asanoyama a few days later. Last time there were only 4 left, this time it were 5 plus a fusen loss of another ozeki. https://www.daily.co.jp/general/2019/11/12/0012869441.shtml

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    Exactly my thoughts. Hakuho knew he was done for and chose to go out on his terms rather than being pushed out. Perhaps seeing Tomokaze being wheeled off just before affected his decision as well.

    Yeah, the little guy doesn't mind mixing up with anyone. He is a mean son of .... and I must admit he is starting to grow on me.
  20. Thread #2 is filled up. 1.) Jakusotsu is on Yokozuna watch. 2.) Gansekiiwa and Oshirokita are on Ozeki watch. 3.) ScreechingOwl (this basho) is on Kadoban watch. 4.) Gurowake (next basho) is on Kadoban watch.

    2 days in and no-one in sanyaku won both matches on the clay. (Asanoyama is the sole 2-0 representative and that was aided by a fusensho).

    Tsurugisho seems to have come to stay. Great sumo from him in the last basho and also in the first two days of the current one.

    Only after day 2, it feels like it is now day 9. A few more days like this, someone in lower rank may steal the yusho.
