    Hello all, below are the kimarite statistics for all divisions in this thoroughly enjoyable basho which absorbed me from start to finish. Shodai continued his recent strong sumo to clinch a well-earned hatsu yusho; it's also the first Makuuchi yusho by a rikishi from Kumamoto prefecture. Meanwhile, Tobizaru's fine debut performance saw him become the third shin-nyumaku to feature in the sanyaku soroibumi, following Onishiki and Baruto. Further down the ranks, Hattorizakura became the first rikishi to fight eight bouts three times in the seven-bout era. Finally, leaving the ranks completely, poor Kotonawa registered his 23rd basho of banzuke-gai status, an unwanted record indeed. A koshinage is a rare sight at the best of times, and we haven't seen one since the 2017 Kyushu basho. So you can imagine my delight when two were produced in this basho, making it the first on record with two koshinage. The first one saw Onoyama throw Satozakura as they approached the tawara on Nakabi. The second was a textbook example, as Kojima launched Daijo nearer the centre of the dohyo on Day 11. Matsuda claimed the 11th nichonage win of his career on Day 12, drawing him level with the record held by Toseima. It came in an entertaining bout with Sadanohikari - after an initial hikkake attempt, Matsuda tried a chongake before launching his nichonage effort. It led to a delicate balancing act for both men, but finally the technique took hold and flipped the Mongolian over onto his back. Well worth watching the video for that one too. The penultimate day of the basho brought a rare okuritsuridashi - Asahinishiki did some nifty footwork on the tawara to survive Wakaikki's attack, and then got behind his opponent to gently lift him out for the win. It's the first okuritsuridashi since the 2017 Aki basho, and only the 15th overall since it was introduced in the kimarite expansion almost two decades ago. There were two kekaeshi in this basho. I only found a video for the first one, which gave Hokuyozan his kachi-koshi. After a brief period of grappling, he found himself looking down to see that Daihisho's leg was in the perfect position to kick away. Makuuchi produced the lowest yorikiri total among the six divisions. The last time this happened was the 2003 Nagoya basho.

    Shoudai's promotion to Ozeki at this time has a pattern- a reason for it happening now. For the last three years he was alternating between KK and MK and moving around the joi ranks between M1-M5 mostly, with one- basho stints at Sekiwake and Komusubi two and a half years ago. Then, a year ago, he suddenly went 3-12 at M4. That dropped him to his lowest rank since he entered Makuuchi back in January 2016. He never fell lower than M7 all those years. In November at M10, he faced the lowest ranked opponents he ever faced since being promoted. A good time to test your strength. Boom- jun-yusho and kantosho with an 11-4, only the second time he ever had 11 wins in Makuuchi at that time. Bumped up to M4 for January. Then even a bigger boom, facing "real" opponents- 13-2, jun yusho and kanto sho. Bumped up to Sekiwake W for March, his third-ever sanyaku rank. Then came the small wall- 8-7, but his first kachikoshi in Sanyaku. Bumped up to Sekiwake E (his highest career rank) for July, as the May basho was Coronarized and did not happen. A lot of time for contemplating, confidence building up after going 24-6 in the prior two basho. Then 11-4 and the kanto-sho at Sekiwake E. Confidence brimming. Sekiwake E for the second straight basho in Aki- 13-2 yusho and 4th kanto-sho in five bashos + a shukunsho. Ozeki. In this run he had only been sekiwake for three bashos. He had been Komusubi only once, back in March 2017, but went 4-11. I think this is incredible. 5 sanyaku bashos in all since his promotion to Makuuchi, and he's Ozeki - took him awhile, but there you are. And during all this time, almost not a single word regarding an Ozeki run, not even before this basho, during his whole career. Maybe that helped, as there was no pressure till the final days of Aki, when it suddenly became a reality..

    I always said he will make it. It wasn't guesswork-it was written. I know, I missed by a few years, but it was a long time coming. I never gave up on him- he is the king of keiko and has been consistently training with the toughest opposition for years and was getting his ass kicked all the time-but that has to pay off sometime. Next guy to get much better is Yutakayama - another guy who trains endlessly. Remember this.. More than deserves a thread of his own. Such a nice, humble guy who wears his heart on his sleeve..

    Tokitsukaze and Matsugane have received their punishments for going out during the virus limitations. Tokitsukaze gets a demotion from iin to toshiyori, Matsugane gets a reprimand. Tokitsukaze travelled to Mie prefecture on September 4th, went out for a meal with people, and stayed at a hotel. He then played golf the next day. He then went to his home town Itsushima and stayed their till the 8th. He was disciplined in the past twice between 2010 and 2011, being demoted from shunin to toshiyori. This time, he left the heya's coaches in charge of training . "As a toshiyori , he should have thought of a worst case scenario, but he didn't even give it a tiny thought, "said Hakkaku rijicho. Regarding Matsugane: "He thought that if he met his family somewhere nearby there would be no problem, but he was being selfish and didn't think this through," said the rijicho. He had gone out for "nonessential business" at least 4 times between September 5th and 10th. "Even as a warning to others, a reprimand is necessary," it was said.

    This really puts things in perspective for newer fans who didn't experience the mediocre Shodai of the last few years. Being a Shodai fan through that time was full of ups and downs and lots of frustration, but I am so happy that he has finally gotten it all together and risen to his full potential. So well deserved. Congratulations Ozeki!

    The translations you provide of sekitori statements to the press each day provide a unique colour to the tournament action. They are invaluable for members of this forum, just as they are invaluable for sumo fans in Japan who read the sports papers. So many thanks. One thing I noticed this tournament is that there were very few (2?) statements from Enho. Just curious if you think that was because the press weren't as interested in following his progress in what was a forgettable tournament for him, or because Enho himself did not make himself easily available to the press. He still remains one of the more popular wrestlers on the replay app, win or lose.

    Day 15. I fasted, I live. Ura, on his way back to sekitorihood? Six wins at Makushita 5: "I'm happy. I went into the bout fully thinking if I win it I may be promoted to Juryo. It was really good. There are many supporting people around me, so I was able to come this far without losing willpower. I would like to get through the 15 days next basho showing healthy and mobile sumo." Tobizaru, missing out on the yusho in his Makushita debut basho: "I wasn't thinking too much about the yusho. First, I just wanted to win that bout. I moved forward but I couldn't get it done. I am very frustrated. No, I wasn't crying, but I guess my frustration showed on my face. I managed to reach my objects of getting a sansho and getting double-digit wins, and I'm happy for that." He faced joi opponents with good results. "I can't win if the sumo becomes my opponents' style. I almost got injured on day 5. I planned on doing forward moving. non-pulling sumo." He will get a healthy boost up the banzuke. "I don't want people to think that it was a fluke, so I will train even harder!" Shoudai, yusho and Ozeki: "I cried. My tsukebito got all watery, and right behind him stood Izutsu oyakata (ex-Toyonoshima). I couldn't stop the flow of tears.. I faced Tobizaru for the first time - I had that on my mind and felt how hard it was. I think I was never this nervous in my whole career. " He went to sleep at midnight the night before but couldn't fall asleep till 5 AM. "Every time I closed my eyes sumo stuff came floating by.. I was nervous till the last shikiri. I could hear my heart thumping. I wasn't sure if I was alive." He was pushed around and seemed to have lost balance at some point. " I didn't give up till the end, and that was good." Last basho he was in the race but fell back on the last days. "I lost to the pressure." Ozeki promotion? "It's a status I have been yearning for. It comes with responsibilities. I still can't believe it. I also want to apologize to Kintamayama-zeki for taking so long and making him look like a fool. I hope he is vindicated now!" He does not intend to change his shikona. "I don't intend to change my shikona." He will be the fifth Ozeki to use his real name. Asanoyama, ending the basho with a loss: "In the end, I was not able to do my own sumo. Even if I did have six consecutive double digit bashos, this record was worse than last basho's so that is bad. Shoudai? A great incentive for me. That's one guy I don't want to lose to .." Takakeishou, beating Asanoyama in the last bout of the basho: "I'm frustrated. I'm still not showing my true strength. When I will, I will get the yusho. When senshuraku came around, I was one step behind the leader. I hate that.. In order to yusho, I should have gotten better results, is what I was thinking. When you're an Ozeki, the only thing that matters is the yusho, so that is regrettable. As for myself, I have been able to give my all this basho." The three rikishi who some thought deserved special prizes as well: Takanoshou, ten wins: "I was able to do my own sumo. I'd like to gambarize in this condition. " Wakatakakage, 11 wins, excellent basho: "This has boosted my confidence. I was able to attack from a low position." Ounoshou, ten wins, turning his nightmare basho in July (2-13) to a better one in Aki : "I'm thankful to be able to mount the dohyo.." Veteran 36 years old Kotoshougiku, sure to fall to Juryo: "I feel like the 15 days are over. I did all I could. I will be seriously thinking how to proceed from here. I 'd like to look to the future and gambarize" Hakkaku rijicho on Shoudai: " This basho he was doing forward-moving sumo from day 1 and the content was good. He must be thrilled, but I think that the people of Kumamoto are thrilled as well."

    Kekka and banzuke: 12 players competed in JWS Aki 2020 and their combined scores came out to 76. To determine the KK line for this basho, it is 76 divided by 12 which comes out to 6.33. This in turn is rounded up to 7 which is the KK line for the basho. The kekka scores are as below: 12-3: chishafuwaku 10-5: Benihana, Achiyama, Tameiki 7-8: Athenayama, Gaijingai, Kyoju, Fujisan 6-9: Flohru 5-10: WAKATAKE 4-11: wolfgangho 3-12: Akogyokuseki The kekka as shown for the Aki banzuke is below Aki 2020 East Rank West chishafuwaku (12-3, Y) O Gaijingai (7-8) S Fujisan (7-8) wolfgangho (4-11) K Achiyama (10-5, J) Flohru (6-9) M1 Tameiki (10-5, J) Athenayama (7-8) M2 Akogyokuseki (3-12) Tenshinhan (0-0-15) M3 Gansekiiwa (0-0-15) Benihana (10-5, J) M4 WAKATAKE (5-10) ScreechingOwl (0-0-15) M5 Houmanumi (0-0-15) Kyoju (7-8) Maez Banzuke for November 2020: November 2020 East Rank West chishafuwaku (12-3, Y, O1E) O Achiyama (10-5, J, K1W) S Tameiki (10-5, J, M1W) Benihana (10-5, J, M4E) K Gaijingai (7-8, S1E) K Fujisan (7-8, S1W) Athenayama (7-8, M2E) M1 Flohru (6-9, M1E) Kyoju (7-8, Maezumo) M2 wolfgangho (4-11, K1E) Akogyokuseki (3-12, M2W) M3 WAKATAKE (5-10, M4W) Tenshinhan (0-0-15, M3E) M4 Gansekiiwa (0-0-15, M3W) ScreechingOwl (0-0-15, M5E) M5 Houmanumi (0-0-15, M5W) chishafuwaku plays the role well in his ozeki debut, taking the yusho with a convincing 12-3 record. Tsuna run? Never say never but we'll have to see how the next tournament plays out. Gaijingai unfortunately was not able to follow through with a 3rd straight convincing performance, and falls back to the komusubi ranks. Hopefully we'll be seeing him launch another ozeki campaign! My thanks to all who continue to play this game, and I'm hoping that we'll be able to add more players come November. Tenshinhan, Gansekiiwa, ScreechingOwl and Houmanumi were MIA for the basho. They are encouraged to come back and play for the next game. See you all in November!
