    I corrected this more than 3 hours before your post, which is somewhat irritating. Are there more problems?

    While I appreciate the information, you certainly could be much more helpful by stating straight forward what is the problem.

    You need to get weighed..

    I used only the May magazines (and especially the booklets) of course because they minimzed the number of rikishi with missing details due to going intai too fast to catch up. That's not a problem anymore since at least the hatsu dohyo height/weight usually is present since many years. So I'm happy with any data set, and actually going with the annual directories might provide a regular yearly update if you or somebody else is going to use this source.

    What he does is being healthy when it counts... makes a big difference for him.

    It's too much work to enter the data... if you can give me a full list of heights/weights for a missing year, I will add them.

    Banzuke Natsu 2017

    Nice, finally one rikishi with the shikona of the long running manga. Maybe he wants to be like the star of it:

    RINGSIDE SEATS for Natsu Basho

    Those are tickets for day 14 of the summer ("Natsu") basho - spring basho was in March. The tickets are not exactly ringside ("tamariseki"), but masuseki which cover the whole ground floor beyond the ringside seats. Going by the price tag they should be masuseki B (they range from A to C) and I think row 11 in the front view section (shomen), so you got a very nice day and block of seats. If you can call them seats, as they are without chairs, it's just a block for 4 to sit on the floor, Japanese style, which can be tight and uncomfortable for typical Western size and mobility. It is likely that Hakuho and Kisenosato participate, but both are coming off injuries right now, so you don't really know for sure, especially if they are still actiive on day 14 or not.

    When will Hakuho intai?

    Ok, but that must be a top secret operation then... I assume the tabloids are not that dumb and watching like hawks if there is something going on, because this might give good headlines. Also this would weaken his position to become non-Japanese oyakata quite a bit if this becomes known.

    When will Hakuho intai?

    Not sure if simply announcing "I'm Japanese now" is doing the trick. There is the pesky matter of actually getting Japanese citizenship which certainly lasts a while...

    The Yobidashi

    Isn't it too obvious? The fan is used to point to the side of the rikishi which he is announcing, right? Makes for better visibility in a big house.

    Not all, but it certainly was some work to correct them. Should be ok now...

    Sorry for missing this contribution. Corrected, and those should actually already be all such cases.

    Must have been a bug in my Excel script which generated the bouts from the torikumi tables... thanks as usual for catching the error, should be corrected now.

    Basho Talk ** Haru Basho 2017 ** (SPOILERS)

    I agree, the decision that Hakuho was shinitai is questionable. He at least had a bit of a counter attack going, in the picture above he isn't exactly looking "dead"...

    Oh yes, they have changed their coding. Plus, shin-deshi pages are not up yet but Murata is in the day 1 sandanme torikumi, so I had to look up his info (and Wakatakakage as well) from other sources. Torikumi is up now in SumoDB and also in the games DB.

    Well spotted, I corrected this now.
  17. A bit late, but the selection stats are in. No really outliers this time as all rikishi had selections for the correct rank. The biggest surprise seems to be Tokushoryu's promotion to Makuuchi at the cost of Chiyootori. He even left Nishikigi behind who is among those with bad banzuke luck (measured against the guessser's expectations) as are Myogiryu, Ura, Daieishi, Kotoyuki and Hokutofuji. Sadanoumi (will you never learn? ) and Endo are among those with good banzuke luck.

    Well, if you can give me a picture, I will add it. Seems not to be available in the mainichi shop now, but maybe it's to be found somewhere else.

    Rikishi pics for database

    Rikishi pic updates for the database are always welcome, I can upload them. Yes, filename is just the rikishi ID, type must be .jpg. Size must be no bigger then 480 pixels in either height or width (usually height = 480 pixel). Bigger sets are best sent by mail.

    Basho Talk - Hatsu Basho 2017 ** (SPOILERS)

    I don't think this would be "bending rules for a Japanese yokozuna", to me this looks like normal consideration for a very good ozeki. With his track record, a 15-0 yusho (unlikely as that is) would result in likely promotion, Japanese or not.

    I think it's ok now to enter the games.

    You should be able to play when the entry form for next basho is available.

    Achew! (Gezundheit) 2017 GTB invitation

    And the selection stats are up and running: Of course Shohozan was lucky, what did you all think? Ikioi apparently was unlucky, only one player got him right. Also a bit unlucky probably were Takekaze, Ishiura and Takakeisho (formerly known as Sato).
