  1. New kesho mawashi (pics)

    Chiyonoumi has a third kesho-mawashi, featuring a katsuo (skipjack tuna) which his home prefecture Kochi is famous for. It was intended to be ready from the start, but Kochi has been badly affected by the recent heavy rainfall and flooding in Japan, so the kesho-mawashi was stuck in transit for a while. Chiyonoumi is wearing it as a gesture of thanks for the support he has received from home. Meanwhile the other shin-Juryo Churanoumi also has a shusshin-inspired kesho-mawashi, a lovely design featuring coral and starfish of Okinawa.
  2. Rikishi Status Nagoya 2018

    NHK reports Tochinoshin is kyujo from Day 7, which will give Shodai a much-needed freebie. First shin-Ozeki kyujo since Musoyama in 2000 Natsu, and the 10th overall from Showa onwards.
  3. Rikishi Status Nagoya 2018

    I've read that it's an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the right knee. It buckled as he was pushed back against the tawara at the end of his bout yesterday.
  4. Trivia bits

    Chiyonokuni is only the fourth rikishi to collect two fusensho wins against Yokozuna in the same basho. The last to do so, Tamakasuga, is now Kataonami-oyakata and was serving as a shimpan for Chiyonokuni's bout today.
  5. Rikishi Status Nagoya 2018

    No more kinboshi on offer this basho - Kyodo reports that Kakuryu is kyujo from Day 6.
  6. No new recruits for Nagoya 2018

    Yup, although he didn't look all that confident in his bandaged knee. I love the fact that the two wakaimonogashira were there as usual with their clipboards, just for that solitary bout. Anyway, here's the shortest maezumo session ever:
  7. Games Bugs

    There's a notice linked on the POG front page, it looks like the entries of the listed players got mangled somehow (e.g Seki Haruaki).
  8. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Koshikudake, most likely.
  9. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    STOP THE PRESSES Hattorizakura just won.
  10. Rikishi Status Nagoya 2018

    Asabenkei and Terasawa both had surgery following the Natsu basho, Asabenkei for the right knee injury he suffered there. No idea about Terasawa's injury. Rikito retired after Natsu but wasn't on the official list. Takaseiryu is apparently retired, he is no longer shown on the heya website personnel page. He was the victim of Takayoshitoshi's hot temper back in March. Shingaku had a fusenpai today due to a right knee ligament injury, an unfortunate way to make his Makushita debut.
  11. Banzuke Surfing Nagoya 2018 (13th Wave)

    And here I'll try Mk41w Ryuko.
  12. Banzuke Surfing Nagoya 2018 (9th Wave)

    I'll go with veteran Sd36w Kasugakuni for this one.
  13. Aki jungyo 2018

    An event will take place in Minamiashigara, Kanagawa prefecture for the first time in 28 years, on October 8th.
  14. No new recruits for Nagoya 2018

    Onomatsu-beya's Mitsuuchi is ready to return according to the okamisan. We'll have to wait (until Day 3, presumably) and see if any of the other banzuke-gai rikishi will join him for a maezumo bout. Vaguely worthy of trivia bits is the fact that he has fought 49 bouts and missed 49 bouts in his on-banzuke career so far. Hopefully he won't add any more to the latter total, two lengthy absences is quite enough bad luck for any rikishi.
  15. New kesho mawashi (pics)

    Two alma mater kesho-mawashi for shin-Juryo Chiyonoumi. On the left is the traditional type for Nihon Taiiku university, on the right from Sukumo High School in his native Kochi prefecture.
