Dejima: (Falling to his second defeat after getting into opponent's favored yotsu position) Once I stop moving, I don't have much going for me.
Kotooshu: (Three straight over Robocop) I'm not afraid of him. I can see with my own eyes [his level of ability]. (Pounding his chest) This is all he has.
Takamisakari: (Raisng white flag) His arms are so long. Once he grabs the mawashi, he can keep me at a distance. There was no way for me to attack.
Hakuho: (Continuing his Alibi Ike act despite a victory) I've had a fever since the day before yesterday. My nose is stuffed and I couldn't sleep [well]. I had a hard time getting up in the morning.
Kyokushuzan: (Wise-cracking about his fusensho) I wasn't able to grab his mawashi today. [Hayateumi] belongs to the same ichimon so I hope he recovers quickly.
Futeno: (A fifth win for the computer geek) Good material for my blog? Guess so. You can look forward to reading it.
Tochiazuma: (Winning a tough one over Tochinonada) I'm getting caught in my opponent's flow. I need to move my body more naturally. Am I tired? I'm not involved in any kind of sumo that would make me tired. It's over quickly whether I win or lose.
Tamanoshima: (Helpless against The Yokozuna) He doesn't miss even the slightest opening. It almost makes one sick.
Asashoryu: (Talking about sick) [It's been so cold] that even when I concentrate, I still end up coughing. (Ryu has been getting injections of garlic extract to stay healthy and robust.)
Tamakasuga: (Despite the end of his winning streak) The sumo content wasn't bad. Now, I am more relaxed. I'm ready to move ahead.
More Tama: (As he flew out of the ring, Buyuzan fell on his butt) I thought there would be mono-ii. Too bad. [Bad luck].
Even more Tama: (From yesterday, perhaps presciently) I was lucky today. I want to keep [romancing] Lady Luck, but I don't have much experience [with her]. I don't even know how. [Luck, be my lady tonight].
Recycled Tama: (For another turn) There is a time to win, and a time to lose.
