    Sumo graphs

    I'm still trying to update the site every basho. I had a couple of years not following sumo that closely (mostly because I got sick of the kyokais old fashion polices), but I'm back again. But I wonder why Haru 2022 didn't have any maezumo-wrestlers. Usually Haru has a lot of them. Instead it seams a lot were banzukegai. Edit: I asked chatGPT but the cutoff knowledge is appearently 2021...

    I know I haven't been updating much lately, but I simplified the code a little bit so I hope to be able to update prior to each basho form now on.

    I finally had some time to update, if someone is interested. http://sumo.danikaru.se/banzukegraph.php (only tested on chrome, win 10)

    Thanks for the nice words. I have now updated it. http://sumo.danikaru.se/banzukegraph.php Custom scaling of Y was the only way to go. Feedback welcome.

    Any concrete suggestions, other than Gurowakes, on how to scale the Y-axis?

    Sumo graphs

    I agree that I should do something to show the total number of rikishi in each basho. (almost 1000 in the 90th, 676 now). I also agree that the sekitori ranks are the most interesting, but I made the emphasis equal over all divisions for 2 main reasons. 1. I want the graphs to show some sort of reality between how many rikishi is in the respective division (Compare the Mercator map projection, which makes many people think northen and sothern countries are bigger than they really are). The graphs are zoomable so to emphasize makuuchi you can just zoom in there. 2. I usually go to Japan about once a year to see a basho. I like to go early and watch the lower divisions. But I noticed that I don't really know much about the lower ranked rikishi. I can of course get info from Sumo reference and other sites, but I wanted to be able to compare rikishi easily on one webpage with just one click (That's when I thought about making a site like this, 3 years ago). So the page is for comparing rikishi of any rank equally. So, besides from choosing rikishi form the banzuke to plot, I want to make it so that during a basho you can choose a matchup and see the 2 rikishi plotted. Also: Bilingual would be good Add some css to make the site prettier Not tested on touch screen, but Reset button might be too close and pressed on accident. As of now, data goes back to 1997 (I wanted to fit Aminishiki in), but it is not a priority right now to go further back, emphasis is on current rikishi. PS. I'm just a mediocre hobby programmer so updating might take some time.

    Ticket sales Aki 2017

    If no changes from before, sale starts at 7.45 each day. My guess of when you have to be there to get a ticket (based on my experience from Jan-17 and May-17): day 1: 6-7 am day 2-6: 7-8 am day 7-8: see day 1 day 9-13: 6 am day 14: 5:30 am day 15: 5 am (in May I was number ca 250 at 4:45) Very approximate times of course, the earlier the better.
