    New ozeki Asanoyama

    Yeah, he's hard to recognize there. Odd.

    Retirees after Haru 2020

    Well the "magic number" is sometimes less than that - see the Hochiyama rule.

    Latest kabu-babu changes

    There's Tamanoumi, who as a makushita rikishi was kicked out for drunkenly fighting on an overseas tour in 1941 and then drafted into the Japanese army. He was allowed back after nine years out and eventually became a sekiwake and Kataonami Oyakata.

    New ozeki Asanoyama

    Part-time. He could devote as much or as little time to it as he wishes.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    What, stuff like statistical facts? It was 28 wins. And like today, there was only one ozeki when he was promoted, so it’s certainly an apt comparison.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2020

    Of course not.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2020

    I disagree, I’m sure they think having only one ozeki is highly unsatisfactory and they will be very keen to promote another as soon as possible. That’s why the 33 wins standard is loosened when there are fewer ozeki.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I’ve lost count of the number of times Kakuryu has been written off around here.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Reports say that Chiyomaru was told at the hospital that his fever was most likely due to a bacterial skin infection, and that the coronavirus test is a precautionary measure.

    I don't think that's true. I recall he was quite critical of the way Osunaarashi threw away his career.

    Preparations of the Y/O- Haru 2020

    No, Frozen.

    Banzuke for Haru 2020

    Maybe more appropriate for the trivia thread, but Kotonowaka is the first maegashira 18 since Aki 1959 (when there was also a maegashira 19).

    Wakaichiro has retired

    Sokokurai and Hakuho still count as foreigners in this instance.
