  1. Yes, the only videos available are makuuchi. ¥500 yen a month is pricey but that is what I used to pay for the phone service website before my smartphone. Getting alerts when your picked rikishi win is nice. Having all your favs in one place and all your fav heya.

    So I've been paying. Also people in Japan can get free gifts during the basho by showing they have the paid version of the app.

    However I've already informed them in my comment form I will not be renewing my subscription from next month because as of Saturday you can only see the app in English if your phone has iOS being used in English. I didn't study kanji for my sumo life to start using English now. Plus it's too confusing when I want to confirm the kanji or Hiragana or something and it is only in English.

    Also there is some stupid information like the list of Shikona changes. When the reading is the same and just the kanji is different it looks pretty stupid. I pointed that out today to the app staff and they said I was right.

    Another lady was there with the opposite problem. She is using Japanese iOS and wants to see the app in English because she brings groups of foreigners to sumo and wants to show them.

    There is no function to change the language in the app which sucks!

    Today I changed my phone to Japanese iOS and now some of my fitness and other apps are only in Japanese and too omplicated to enjoy! What a pain in the arse!

    Also it seems really stupid to have an app available only in the Japanese apple and android stores and have it in English.

    Total strangeness!

  2. This is the most recent Chaingang thread so I thought I would ask who runs this game?

    I entered a few games last minute due to no Internet, I got a confirmation I could not use my entry had to be default pick. Well my default won and I'm not on either winner nor loser half of the page and on the entry page says "you're outta here"

    Anyone can help me?


  3. Interesting idea! And a game I didn't miss the deadline for as I did for all the current basho games.

    Thanks for the entry! And from what I assume from normal scheduling, this was well before any Makuuchi matches started; it is unfortunate you were just a little too late for most everything else that had a deadline an hour earlier.

    I'll have entry statistics in a few.

    No problem! I would have seen this sooner had I had Internet the whole weekend! Which is why I missed all the games this basho!


  4. I'm sorry I missed the deadline. It's really a shame as I had all my games noted on paper ready to enter, had been making decisions in the few minutes between classes... But yesterday my pocket wifi went out and my iPhone was being updated for 16 hours so no Internet... Totally bummed!

    Toonoryu, I'm sorry I didn't log on earlier to tell you that Homasho would be absent this basho! :(
