  1. 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.

    I forgot that Asahifuji even graduated  - he reentered Kindai while being active - he was officially in the sumo club there

    He was 20 when he joined ozumo and was close to two years member of the club, shouldn't that be enough then to have it on his page, like here:

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

    Is being no graduate no reason to exclude the rikishi (for now)? Asahifuji is not listed as from the Kindai sumo club, but Suyama, who has not graduated yet, from Todai.

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

    Toseiryu is a graduate of the Kyushu Institute of Information Sciences

    Ok, but do they have a sumo team and was he part of it? Being a graduate is no reason to include it in the DB, there were other graduates before where the university had no sumo team or the rikishi wasn't part of it. They do have a sumo team, so the question is if he was a member?

  5. 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.

    West Side Story in the third session. Kazenoumi moved to 3-0 and done, tomorrow should be the last session for the rest.

    X Kosei		Kazenoumi O
    X Shokeima	Kotosato O
    X Tsuru		Negishi O
    X Toriyama	Okano O
    X Sakuraba	Kazeeidai O


    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.

    Thanks for the speedy repair!

    I still wonder why it was like this... Could be because he was Ms15TD in Aki...

    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.

    It wasn't too hard to fix once I started stepping through the routine in debug mode to see what it was doing.  But I never thought I would need to change anything.

    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.

    Aki 2022 was the first time since Hatsu 2018 (coincidentaly, Tochinoshin's maiden Yusho) that Kasugano stable had 4 sekitori.

    With the almost certain demotion of Tochimaru back to Makushita, I theorize that it will be a long while until Kasugano gets 4 sekitori again, not even counting that both Tochinoshin and Aoiyama may be looking at retirement in the not-so distant future...

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

    Maezumo today: Sachinofuji-Hamasaki



    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... (Idunno...)

    That's funny.Why on earth did I see it on the DB already at 1:00 p.m.?


    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.

    While we have your attention, could I rather shamelessly check what the second column on the simple style torikumi list is for?

    What second column? (Whistling...)

    (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)

  13. 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.

    Funny that you mention that. Whenever I dig into their data I too get the nagging feeling that their rikishi data's key column is the shikona, not any id number.

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

    I did not change the birthdays, though. Since Doitsuyama has an offline file for biographical data, too, that one would become outdated then.

    That's right, but I'm happily correcting birthdays if needed. I didn't quite see what has to be fixed though?

    Do the rikishi yearbooks count? In the H18 book - the last one he featured as 駒乃富士克明 - there is かつあき furigana for his shikona given name.

    Small limitation: The H18 yearbook is the first one which has furigana for given names at all, before that it was only for the shikona. Now, the yearbooks had their flaws as well, but the idea that 克明 reads "Katsuaki" doesn't come completely out of the blue.

    I guess someone has to ask him via twitter...

    I'm pretty sure I got that reading from such a yearbook or another source and from that took it for his real name. But sure, if the Kyokai lists his name as Yoshiaki I will change this now, and also the old shikona names on the assumption that a mistake is more likely than a different reading (which would also not be impossible).
