    It is updated now.

    Interestingly the first two out of the only four after 1950 had very short careers, and the third actually got a big lift by several people, including the second in that list.

    Ms1w Takerufuji lost on day 6 to Hakuyozan which was the first time he lost to a rikishi without university background. Before that his career record was 39-5 with all losses coming to university rikishi. I'm not sure how to put that into some kind of record, like most bouts to start the career without losing to a non-university rikishi, but it seemed remarkable to me.

    It is kind of amazing that the article didn't mention Takakeisho and Atamifuji.

    I'm not sure what is wrong here?

    It had nothing to do with this kanji, I just somehow missed it. The names are updated, but weirdly the new kanji displays the same as the old kanji on the SumoDB website - if you copy it and paste somewhere else it is visible as new kanji. Probably it is a matter of the font, but I'm not sure how to fix this. Edit: I modified the website to use a different font-family if Japanese language is on and it displays correctly now. Not really happy with the result yet, but I will have another look later.

    Trivia bits

    It's not very often that the Juryo yusho winner has more wins than the makuuchi yusho winner, but it's not super rare as well as this basho was the 27th time in the 15 day era that it happened. But it is the first time that this happened two basho in a row as it already was the case in Hatsu 2023. And it's only the third time after Haru 1954 and Kyushu 2007 that not only one, but two Juryo rikishi had more wins than any Makuuchi rikishi. While I'm on this topic, last basho and this basho were the 5th and 6th time in the 15 day era that the Juryo yusho winner had two more wins than the makuuchi yusho winner and the first two times featuring 14 to 12 wins (Haru 2006, Kyushu 1961, Haru 1955 were 15-0 by future Ozeki and Kyushu 1996 had a 5 rikishi tie at 11-4 in Makuuchi).

    The kanji read Agoura, but apparently this means something very different from what you think it means. The "ou" in Japanese transcription means a long "o", there is nothing of the "u", while the "ou" in Agourar is an o and an u, something completely different.

    Well, I meant the other two besides Miyabiyama as he was mentioned in the post just above mine..

    You can't really count Miyagiyama as he became Yokozuna in 1922 with Osaka sumo which merged 1927 with the NSK.

    The other two are Wajima and Musoyama. Jokoryu came very close to do it from mae-zumo as he went 27-0 before losing the yusho decider from Ms15e.

    Hmm, a bintsuke perfume would be interesting, no?

    Last time was Shimoda in Natsu 2006. The banzuke was crowded and so he didn't get promoted to Juryo. Sadly it turned out that he'll never got to the paid ranks.

    Sure, that's enough, so I added it now. It's pretty similar to Miyabiyama after all.

    Being a graduate is no requirement, just officially being in the sumo club of the university.
