    Having had opportunity to watch him train close up (like reach-out-and-touch-him-close-up) for the past four years, I can confirm that he is a beast of a man even among other beasts of men. A tall, rock-solid mass of muscle, and not at all fleshy like a typical rikishi. Unfortunately, he moves how you think someone of his physique would move--stiffly--which limits what he is capable of, but yeah, he's not someone you'd like to make angry.

    While you all have been causing a stir in here I have been pondering about the problem a bit further... First of all: it is more of a "problem". During the 120ish basho since UDH has started a shonichi fusen has happened five times in Makuuchi, before that you have to go back to 1991, 1972 and 1966. Towanoyama (M13, 2002.03) and Osunaarashi (M3, 2016.07) were at personal ability levels and ranks that I would expect to be picked by many players in very similar fashion. So was Tokitsuumi (M16, 2006.05), who did even return to the basho later. Kakuryu on the other hand (two times: 2015.04 and 2019.11) was at a position where you would have to have a good reason to pick him in UDH. Makes 2-3 out of 120 basho. As for the deadline, I do not quite see the point in putting it as late as possible. Yes, more information for more players to use, but what would be the result of it? (Nearly) everyone setting Kakyuryu on 6pts and effectively everyone is playing with 12 rikishi and only 33 daily points.

    I'm keeping my eyes open. The only way that I can determine that is by seeing who is by his side before he walks down the hanamichi. But NHK doesn't tend to show the rank-and-filers as they prepare to enter the stadium/approach the dohyo. But perhaps Forum members with inside information might be able to answer that question.

    While everyone was focused on Wakatakakage who was having a stellar debut until..., Takanosho was struggling with three straight losses. But I am starting to respect the 25-year-old. He as brought his record up to 3-3, which keeps him in the hunt for a KK. But what I respect the most about him is that he is continuing to serve as Takakeisho's tsukebito in this tournament. Normally, reaching the Top Division precludes having to be at a higher-ranked sekitori's beck and call. But despite getting promoted up to Makuuchi, Takanosho is remaining as the main man supporting the star of Chiganoura Stable (i.e., Takakeisho), who is both younger than he is and hasn't technically been in Chiganoura Stable as long as he has. Something tells me that Chiganoura oyakata doesn't want to risk giving Takakeisho a less-experienced and less well-behaved tsukebito for fear that it might negatively impact Takakeisho's performance (which sadly, hasn't been all that good this tournament). Props to Takanosho for trying to help Takakeisho and his stable!

    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.

    Simply, the lawyers were telling him what he wanted to hear (that he had a chance) as long as he paid them money. Since he's never been responsible for buying anything his while life he probably didn't understand it's worth and there's very few earning opportunities like sekitori money. Then the money ran out and the lawyers stopped telling him what he wanted to hear. If somebody was funding him through this, then they don't have an excuse of lack of life experience to see how hopeless this was and all i can say is that there's brain damage involved or something.
