  1. Former Juryo Dewaotori has announced his retirement after a 13-year career. A former high school Yokozuna while at Meitoku Gijuku school, he made his ozumo debut in March 2004 and swiftly rose to Makushita, reaching Juryo after two years. His three-basho stint there ended with a terrible 2-13 record, and he was never able to return as numerous injuries kept knocking him back. Celebrating his promotion to Juryo outside Dewanoumi-beya: Handshake with then-Dewanoumi-oyakata (former Sekiwake Washuyama): Small pictures, with an oichomage, his first kesho-mawashi and his new nobori: - - Juryo dohyo-iri: Shiomaki:
  2. Forum Update Feedback, version 4.2

    Heh, "first initial" default avatars seems like a very Google-ish thing. At least they're a bit more colourful than the default silhouettes we had before. Anyway, thanks as always Exil!
  3. Hi all. Here are the kimarite statistics for the 2017 Nagoya basho. Hakuho claimed his 39th Makuuchi title, the 300th won by a Yokozuna in the yusho era. There weren't many surprises among the kimarite either in what was a relatively orthodox basho. Popular former Sekiwake Toyonoshima turned a potential sotogake loss into a nice kawazugake win, the first appearance of the year for that fairly rare leg trip. He is the only active rikishi with two kawazugake wins at the moment, the first one coming almost a dozen years ago. Another kimarite appearing for the first time was sakatottari, in fact the arm bar counter was counted twice here. Sakigake got his first win on Day 8 to temporarily avoid make-koshi, and the next day Kenshin secured his kachi-koshi with a rare departure from his overwhelmingly oshi-based sumo. And the third kimarite making its 2017 debut in Nagoya was fumidashi from the non-technique group. Orora collected the 41st kimedashi win of his career in this basho, easily the most among active rikishi. Trailing some way behind are two other hefty rikishi, Daigonishiki advancing his total to 23 here to tie with absent Kenho for second among active rikishi. There were 120 oshitaoshi wins in this basho, the highest total for any basho in the current kimarite era (post-2001), although as a percentage of bouts it was slightly down on the mark from 2012 Haru. On the other hand, hikkake was a notable absence here, drawing a blank for the first time since 2014 Kyushu, and only the fifth time in the last 26 years. I can't see anything else that is particularly noteworthy so that will have to do until the Aki basho, which will be the 100th of the current kimarite era. Kimarite from kettei-sen bouts are not included in the statistics.

  4. Retirees after Nagoya 2017

    A few pictures from Hisatsukasa's danpatsu-shiki, held at Irumagawa-beya's senshuraku party. Something I haven't seen before is the retiree having his first and last oichomage prepared on the stage in front of all the guests. Also retiring but not on the list this time is Fujishima-beya's Hayate after a 10 year career. His danpatsu-shiki also took place at the heya's senshuraku jolly. Hayate had an 8-basho stint back in the early days of the persistence watch. Even so, he later had a moment in the spotlight with an appearance in a 9-man Jonidan kettei-sen back in 2013 Haru, which can all be enjoyed thanks to Kintamayama.
  5. New Juryo for Aki 2017

    In case Bumpkin meant most promotions by rikishi (since the two returnees here are both chalking up #7), the record is held by Sumanofuji with 8 promotions.
  6. Basho Talk - Nagoya 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Yorikiri win for Sasakiyama, and then (delete as applicable): A) He stubs his toe on the tawara B) His feet slip on the sand C) Dame-oshi from the Invisible Man D) Kimura Zennosuke activates his rikishi magnets E) Audition for a shokkiri spot on next month's jungyo
  7. Aki jungyo 2017

    Just like last year's Aki jungyo, the 2017 edition will have 22 events. And with the winter jungyo still to come, deputy jungyo director Tamanoi-oyakata (former Ozeki Tochiazuma) says that there will be over 70 jungyo days in total for the year, the same as 2016. Before everyone sets off on the jungyo, another "Ozumo Beyond 2020" event will take place at the Kokugikan on October 4th. No further details are available yet about what it will feature this time. Another sandangamae with Kisenosato and Hakuho would be nice! While not officially part of the jungyo, it is shown on the handwritten schedule shown below. October 5th - Yachiyo, Chiba (Site) October 6th - Yokohama, Kanagawa October 7th - Saitama, Saitama (Site) October 8th - Fuji, Shizuoka (Site) October 9th - Chikusei, Ibaraki (Site) October 11th - Hamamatsu, Shizuoka October 12th - Ichinomiya, Aichi (Site) October 13th - Nagano, Nagano (Site) October 14th - Kanazawa, Ishikawa (Site) October 15th - Kyoto, Kyoto (Site) October 17th - Takayama, Gifu (Site) October 18th - Tsu, Mie October 19th - Kashiba, Nara October 20th - Hirakata, Osaka October 21st - Kishiwada, Osaka (Site) October 22nd - Osaka, Osaka* (Site) October 24th - Okayama, Okayama (Site) October 25th - Yabu, Hyogo (Site) October 26th - Tottori, Tottori (Site) October 27th - Matsue, Shimane (Site) October 28th - Hiroshima, Hiroshima (Site) October 29th - Fukuyama, Hiroshima (Site) * Referred to as Naniwa Basho, held in the same venue as the Haru basho.
  8. Looking suitably regal for his zensho yusho. I did search but I don't think this has been posted yet.
  9. Spirited rikishi Nagoya 2017

    All competing rikishi from the sekitori divisions are eligible, win or lose. Juryo or Makushita rikishi visiting for the day are also eligible. This situation has happened at least three times, probably more. In 2012 Haru, Takanoyama was #1 on Day 12 despite losing to Aoiyama, who was #2. In 2013 Haru, Baruto was #1 on Day 10 after losing to Hakuho, who was #2. And then in 2013 Natsu Kisenosato was #1 on Day 14 after losing the 13-0 bout against Hakuho, #2 again. Most agonising case (to me at least) of a losing rikishi being #1 was Satoyama on the final day of 2014 Hatsu, when he lost a sansho with a hansoku loss against Takayasu, who didn't make the top three. On that day too was the interesting case of Kakuryu as #2, winning his regular bout against Hakuho but then losing to him in the kettei-sen. I don't know what happens to the voting in case of a kettei-sen, if it stops after the regular bout or continues for the kettei-sen. I was keeping an archive of the results for a time, but I fell behind and forgot to save the pages after several basho, so I appreciate you posting them here lately.
  10. Lower-division Torikumi Nagoya Basho 2017

    6 Kyokuhikari (Jd100w) 1-3 Momochizakura (Jd94w) 1-3 This is the first over-40s bout (that I know of) not to feature Hanakaze. These two have both been in sumo for 25 years but have never met until now, as Kyokuhikari's banzuke level has only dropped down here in the last few years. In fact, he's now in danger of falling to Jonokuchi for the first time since his very first basho on the banzuke. 23 Kainowaka (Jd59e) 3-1 Hanakaze (Jd61w) 3-1 Later, Hanakaze and Kainowaka meet for another hatsu-kao bout that has been a long time coming, with a combined age of 85 years and 4 months or so. Kainowaka had his 900th career bout yesterday against the second-oldest rikishi, Isenohana.
  11. Basho Talk - Nagoya 2017 (SPOILERS)

    An unprecedented 50th consecutive loss for Hattorizakura. At least he was moving forwards, Kotoimagawa might provide a rare chance for a win in future.
  12. Rikishi Status Nagoya 2017 - FINAL

    Kurahashi pulled a muscle in his right thigh before the basho and was hobbling around on crutches for a while. He was hoping to be able to enter at some point as this is his home basho. He's been out of luck lately - last basho his right knee buckled in his senshuraku loss to Satoyama, although he did manage to hobble off the dohyo. Don't know if he went in the wheelchair for that one.
  13. Rikishi Status Nagoya 2017 - FINAL

    If this carries on there might not be much of a joi left for Ura to fight - Nikkan reports that Terunofuji is out from Day 6, which would give Shodai a much-needed free win. EDIT: Nikkan just doubled down and says Kisenosato is out as well. That would give Kotoshogiku the freebie.
  14. Rikishi Status Nagoya 2017 - FINAL

    Oh man.... He had done so well in the last two tournaments. If someone can find a reason for the withdrawal will you please post it here? According to the heya blog he suffered an ankle injury after falling from the dohyo in his first bout.
  15. New recruits for Nagoya 2017

    Wakanoguchi makes sense with him being Nishiiwa's uchideshi, same as Wakasatake. I agree though that they're definitely not making it easy to decipher. Incidentally the gyoji in the white outfit is the rookie Kimura Keitaro, no major blunders, if a bit quick on the draw with the gunbai in his first bout today. All part of the learning process.
