    New recruits Kyushu 2022

    0-2 Kosei against 2-0 Kazenoumi and 0-3 Shokeima against 2-1 Kotosato? Switching Kosei and Kotosato would make standard mae-zumo pairings. Also you stated that only Kazenoumi is done at 3-0, but with your results Kotosato also would be done at 3-1. I guess we'll see today. Ok, I have to agree that the video is proof enough. Very weird match-making indeed.

    Did you perhaps mix up Kosei and Kotosato here? 0-2 Kosei against 2-0 Kazenoumi is unusual for mae-zumo and Kotosato would also be finished at 3-1.

    This is only the second time that all makuuchi rikishi have a loss after day 4. The only other time was Kyushu 1969 and there were only 34 makuuchi rikishi back then.

    I didn't synch the four recruits from Aki properly with the Sumo Reference DB. Usually this gets fixed itself after a basho or two when this happens, but Kawazoe was already high up so it's tangentially related to his Ms15Td start.

    I fixed the Kawazoe bug, and added the 6 records to the DB.

    If you are not happy with my site, feel free to grab from the official NSK site. But be warned, you have absolutely no idea how often I had to change my code to adapt to changes on the NSK site.

    What's so special about Hokuseiho?

    Yeah, the Japanese surely don't have such a national sport with long heritage to draw inspiration from. /s

    This seems like a dangerous bet with Tsukahara threatening to get to Juryo pretty soon.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yūshō Discussion Aki 2022

    If the number of sanyaku gets slimmed down by two (which seems pretty likely at this point), there even will be a full maegashira 17 rank added to the bottom and I wonder what effect this will have on possible demotions...

    I think it's weird that there was only one bout on day 4, why would Okuyama and Otani sit the day out? They didn't meet on day 5 as well, and it doesn't make sense to not have them meet at all as both are 2-0 against the other two. They also aren't from the same heya. I'm going to assume that they met on day 4 and that Otani won...

    The database for most games is different from the Sumo Reference DB and has its own torikumi. Oh, and Golynohana's games have another database with their own torikumi. They all draw the torikumi from the main DB, but the process sometimes needs to be kicked.

    Yes, day 15 torikumi was not grabbed yet, I kicked it now.

    What second column? (It indeed used to be an order column over all bouts of the day, but it is bugged with the automated grabbing and I'm never using it anyway, so I removed it now)

    These ID numbers are not at all times present. For example if you just list the torikumi of a day, you don't see this ID (and sometimes there even isn't an hyperlink where you could see the ID in the url). For this reason it does make sense for a mainstream outlet like the NSK website to change the shikona from the standard romanization. The Sumo Reference is a niche website though, and so I don't see urge for me to make shikona "changes" to cater for the audience. I thought about using unicode characters for long vowels but decided against it, as unicode wasn't too widespread. By now it seems to be more usual, so I might make a change to unicode characters (ō and ū) with another checkbox option on the left not to use unicode. But I'm not sure if this would even be conceived as a positive change from the users of Sumo Reference.

    They do have an id number, it's in the url.
