    New recruits Hatsu 2022

    Some news out of the useless trivia department: - Chiyotsurugi set a new record with 8 losses in the current mae-zumo system (at least within my collected data), beating Shunpo who went 0-7. - Chiyotsurugi is the first rikishi to lose 3 times against the same opponent in mae-zumo (again, within my collected data). Before this only Sakashita and Yamakawa met 3 times in Haru 2020 and they went 2-1. - In fact, only once before one rikishi had 3 wins against the same rikishi in the same basho with Nanzan against Fujitora in Nagoya 1990 (of course again, among my collected data). I have 4 more cases of rikishi meeting in hon-basho and then twice in playoff bouts (but all 2-1): Roho against Wakanoyama in Hatsu 2004, Shimamusashi against Haguronada in Kyushu 1994, Konishiki against Hokutoumi in Haru 1990 and Tochifuji against Yoshinohana in Aki 1972. Edit: I just realize that Shimamusashi and Haguronada had all 3 bouts in the playoff, making it the only case of the same match three times on the same day.

    I fixed the email address on the juryo games website and will write you in PM about your problem.

    Hatsu 2022 - Day 11: Wardrobe malfunction?

    Nice charts, but the highest BMI on the far right seems to be a serious mistake...

    Hmm, since there are 3 height-weight entries I should have those details somewhere, but I will need some time to investigate.

    New Juryo for Kyushu 2021

    I rather thought it's not about disciplinary-related incidents here, but about not listing a person twice on the banzuke and he will be listed as Magaki. Obviously Sokokurai got listed twice but as was said already, Makushita is different from Makuuchi and especially Yokozuna.

    Hakuho retires

    Why "Hardenne"? At the time of retirement she wasn't married anymore and was back to Henin.

    Another topic recently was Yokozuna performance against first time opponents, and the loss doesn't bode well for Terunofuji seeing that he will have his premier first time meeting tomorrow (against Ura).

    And we have the result already with a final score of 7 for Terunofuji.

    Asahifuji kanreki dohyo-iri

    Hard to believe that he died just one year after this...

    I'd argue that Hakuho tops this, going 33-0 before his first such loss in his tenth year as Yokozuna. It is arguably not Asashoryu's fault that he had only 7 Yokozuna years but he never could go beyond 25-0.

    Trivia bits

    I can't answer this for all time since most "final bouts" are in lower divisions and lower division torikumi are far from complete (without gaps only since Heisei era, see the database stats for a complete overview). So it's not unlikely some former rikishi with a long career actually beats the two following leaders: Kasachikara and Itakozakura both were the final opponent for the maximum number of 9 opponents. These two make sense as they had (or have as Itakozakura is still active!) a very long career with a career high in Jonidan as the most final bouts happen in low ranks, and also the lowest rankers have the shortest careers on average, so more final bouts again.

    Takagenji Caught Smoking Weed

    Ok, in Asashoryu's case it was a bit more effort than just erasing his name as they indeed also changed Hakuho from YW to YE, but it's not like they really created a new banzuke.

    Takagenji Caught Smoking Weed

    I don't agree, it's the same in the sense that the division is short one rikishi (only 41 makuuchi rikishi). It would also be the same if it were the last rikishi in a division - not at once visible but tipp-exed nonetheless.

    The makushita hoshitori should be fixed now.

    Banzuke for Nagoya 2021

    Thanks for all the details, they are in the DB now. Just one question, the kanji of "Sho" here is different from his real given name, so I guess I want to make sure if this is correct?
