    Interesting banzuke indeed-excellent results at the top. The yusho winner did it for the third time. 73 points. It's Itachiyama!! Congratulations and jubilations. Not one single player got Daieishou right. No less than 17 new players, five kachikoshi, two in the top ten, one of them in third place!! Cheesofuji, what a first basho.. 124 players in all made the effort. Incredible. And at the top of the banzuke now sits Reonito. Milestones, and what milestones indeed!!: Ullishimaru- 120th basho!! (20 years more or less..) Yubinhaad- 120th basho!! Takanorappa- 120th basho!! Jakusotsu - 100th basho!! Pitinosato- 90th basho!! Korinokoishi- 30th basho To see how you did, go here. Thank you all for playing, and thank you Andoreasu for running it and Doitsuyama for maintaining it. And now- on with the Ba-show!!

    I can't for the life of me think of another scenario that doesn't border on the insane (as if this doesn't already) where a M2w can go 23-7 and not make sekiwake.

    Short list of shikona changes this time. Highest ranked is Ito who is now Mineyaiba. I don't know if there's a particular idea behind that but Shikoroyama-beya is no stranger to left-field shikona. He also changes the given name to Jonosuke. Two changes from Shikihide-beya. Reon in fact just makes an addition to his existing shikona and is now Reonmaru. Meanwhile, Satozakura is now Nihonmatsu, the name of his home city in Fukushima prefecture. Musashigawa-beya's Hanashi is the recipient of another hometown-inspired shikona - he is now Mihonoumi, honouring Miho town in Ibaraki prefecture. Finally, Tagonoura-beya youngster Taniguchi is now Takanoryu. Ms28e Ito Chikashi > Mineyaiba Jonosuke (嶺刃 常乃助) Jd49w Reon > Reonmaru (黎大丸) Jd72w Satozakura > Nihonmatsu (二本松) Jd98e Hanashi > Mihonoumi (美浦ノ湖) Jd103e Taniguchi > Takanoryu (隆の龍) Two rikishi make changes to their shikona given name only. Daiseido can't seem to make his mind up - after changing to Masaru last summer and then to Daishi just last basho, he has now reverted back to his real given name, Yoshitomo. Elsewhere, veteran Asatenmai has changed the first kanji of his given name but keeps the reading as Seita. Ms51w Daiseido Daishi > Yoshitomo (喜悌) Sd56w Asatenmai Seita (晴多 > 精多)

    Topics: Tokushouryuu broke the record for least number of bashos to fall to Juryo after a yusho - 5. The record was 7 held by Wakanami. He's the 14th rikishi to fall to Juryo with yusho experience. Hidenoumi back in Makuuchi after 17 bashos and joins his brother Tobizaru there. 9th time we have brothers in Makuuchi, and first time since March 2014 with Chiyomaru and Chiyoootori. Ichiyamamoto back in Juryo after 7 bashos. Nishikifuji after 2 bashos. Sadogatake beya has the most rikishi - 30, though they are three less than last basho, followed by Kise with 28. 652 rikishi from 44 heya in all, 13 less than last basho. Tokyo shusshin rikishi are in 1st place - 55. then Osaka with 36 and Aichi with 35. 21 Mongolians - 11 sekitori.(8 Makuuchi, 3 Juryo). The rest of the foreigners are one each from Brazil, Ukraine, Russia, Hungary, Georgia, Bulgaria and the Philippines..

    The SumoDB is not a commercial site. Nobody pays for this valuable information, and it is maintained for many years by a devoted sumo fan at zero personal benefit. Against this background, I find it somewhat irritating if people demand that this person should do this or that. As for the photos: these were all personally taken by another incredibly dedicated sumo fan who unfortunately doesn‘t provide this service any longer. And unless Doitsuyama doesn‘t want to run into copyright issues by using photos from existing Websites, no easy solution is at hand.
