    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2018

    I agree, in fact he came in while still recovering from a knee injury (because had he waited longer he would have been over the age limit, if I remember correctly), hence the missed maezumo stint at the start. And he often has taping on his shoulder, so he seems like one of those who has plenty of miles on the clock from his collegiate days. I adopted him into Yubinhaad-beya last year when he had a fusenpai after missing his train to the basho. Happy for Gokushindo, and Nishikido-beya is off the mark at last with their first yusho.

    Lower-division Torikumi Aki Basho 2018

    10 Hanakaze (Jd78e) 3-3 Itakozakura (Jd82w) 3-3 First meeting for these two veterans, with a combined age of some 88 years and 3 months, and 342 honbasho. Not quite a 40+ bout though, as Itakozakura won't celebrate that birthday until October 2nd.

    Rikishi Status Aki 2018 - Day 15 Late Withdraws

    Kimura Hisanosuke returned to the basho on Day 10. Also, I failed to notice that Kimura Ginjiro was absent from the start, but recovered from whatever was ailing him and has been present since Day 7.

    Rikishi Status Aki 2018 - Day 15 Late Withdraws

    Kyokutaisei is kyujo again to rest his knees, giving Chiyomaru a much-needed win on Day 11.

    Lower-division Torikumi Aki Basho 2018

    4 Aonosho (Ms54e) 2-2 Aozora (Ms55e) 2-2 A year to the day since the last one, this was the 7th bout between survivors of the previous Tagonoura-beya. The Kasugano branch takes a 4-3 lead thanks to Aozora's win today.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    With his 4th win today, Toyonoshima is the 19th rikishi in the seven-bout era to get such an early kachi-koshi, and the first since Ura in 2016 Haru. All Makushita examples involve a Juryo visit of course. Aka (a.k.a Wakanojo) holds the unique distinction of doing this twice and in different divisions, getting the only Day 6 kachi-koshi in Jonokuchi on his debut, and then again three years later in Makushita.

    Rikishi Status Aki 2018 - Day 15 Late Withdraws

    Yes. 左肘内側側副靭帯, medial collateral ligament? His left elbow was strapped in his Day 4 bout, I just noticed. Oh, and in follow-up articles the shisho said Yutakayama wants to return to the basho if the pain subsides enough. Elsewhere, Makuuchi gyoji Shikimori Yonokichi is still kyujo (fourth basho in a row I think?) due to poor physical health, while Kimura Hisanosuke is kyujo from Day 5 onwards for the same reason.

    Rikishi Status Aki 2018 - Day 15 Late Withdraws

    Kyodo reports that Yutakayama is kyujo from Day 5. According to his shisho he sustained an elbow injury in his Day 3 loss to Kisenosato. Goeido will collect the fusensho.

    Kyokutaisei kyujo from Day 4 with a right knee injury. First kyujo of his career. Ryuden will receive the default win.

    Database query

    57 wins (1 fusensho), 27 losses (Makuuchi division, which I assume is what you wanted)

    Banzuke Surfing Aki 2018 (9th Wave)

    I'll go with veteran Sd55e Kaonishiki this time. Hope for a birthday boost when he becomes the 11th active 40+ rikishi in a few days!
