  1. Video of the Class A team final, which went down to the last bout. Toyo in the white mawashi, Nihon in black.
  2. Musashigawa-beya has a new gyoji, 15-year-old Kimura Keitaro (木村 啓太郎) from Yokohama, Kanagawa prefecture. Normally I'd wait for the new recruits thread to post that, but he makes his first appearance in the Kyokai's pictures from the latest sumoji training session for the younger gyoji.
  3. Former Maegashira Takanoyama appeared in the May issue of a Czech fight magazine called "Bojová umění". Looking in good shape. This is what Google makes of the text on the picture:
  4. Sorry for the delay - I could've sworn I posted this a week ago! Well anyway, here are the danpatsu-shiki pictures I was able to find for some of this basho's retirees, starting with Yamatofuji, held at Onomatsu-beya's senshuraku party. A constant presence in Makushita since the end of 2011, as Asashosakari mentioned he came within one win of earning promotion to Juryo in the 2014 Haru basho. Next the danpatsu-shiki of veteran Fujiarashi, who retires at the age of 39 after a 24-year career. Over to Tamanoi-beya next for Notoazuma's danpatsu-shiki. Those of you hoping to see Oazuma making a cut will be as disappointed as me, unfortunately. Also, some of the pictures are not good quality. Finally to Dewanoumi-beya for Fujinoumi's danpatsu-shiki. Two large shots from the Kokugikan on senshuraku, the rest are terribly small. Also a video of the final cut. The two pictures for Rikiyushi were posted here in the rikishi status thread at the start of the basho. Oh, and some unfortunate news about some upcoming retirements, not directly sumo-related of course but with some relevance to our Forum. Yahoo's Honyaku translator, which I still found useful at times, will be closed on June 29th. And image hosts Imagebam (which I never used) and Imgbox (which I have) will be closing down on the following day, June 30th. They are owned by the same company I think. I hope that's not a sign of the times, as a game of "musical image hosts" is no fun at all.
  5. Bag of water with handles. This one is made by Bodymaker, who used to be the "arena name" for the Haru basho venue a few years ago.
  6. It's in the right place, but the title is a bit long for my liking - something like "Tomozuna-beya's Kaishinho arrested for theft" is more succinct, but that's just my opinion. Also, he should not be referred to with the -zeki honorific. Anyway, from what I can gather it seems that this occurred on November 13th last year. The card was allegedly stolen from a car belonging to a 62-year-old office worker, which was in a parking lot in Kashiwa, Chiba prefecture. The alleged suspects then withdrew ¥800,000 from a cashpoint in a convenience store in the city. Police are investigating the suspected involvement of Kaishinho and a 20-year-old unemployed man. Not the most auspicious headlines for either the outgoing or incoming Tomozuna-oyakata - the handover is set for June 11th - but this will surely not be regarded as any kind of heya problem, especially since it took place before Kaishinho actually entered the heya.
  7. Greetings all. Here are the kimarite statistics for all divisions in the 2017 Natsu basho. The total number of torikumi surpassed the 2,500 mark for the first time since January 2011. Sadogatake-oyakata must have organised a special amiuchi training session for his deshi ahead of this basho, since the heya accounted for all three occurrences of that technique here. Amanoshima will be at a new career-high rank on the next banzuke after another successful leg hunt this basho, getting four of his five wins with ashitori. Kotodairyu was among his victims for the second basho in a row. Elsewhere, Ikeru collected two ashitori wins on his return to Makushita, while Jonokuchi yusho winner Enho got the other one, surviving a mono-ii about a possible isamiashi. Speaking of Ikeru, take a look at his win against former Juryo Dairaido on Day 5. The shitatehineri itself was nice, but gyoji Kimura Satoshi also deserves a pat on the back for his evasive manoeuvre. Toseima collected the 10th nichonage win of his career in this basho, becoming the first rikishi to reach double-digits with one of my favourite kimarite. There were two ketaguri here, both coming in sekitori bouts. Arawashi got the first one against Takekaze, while Kyokutaisei got the second against Rikishin, in what was a rather forgettable basho for all four rikishi. Also, Tsugaruumi clinched his kachi-koshi with the only kekaeshi this time. Okuridashi wouldn't normally be mentioned in the notes, but this basho saw an inordinate amount of rikishi getting the bum's rush, as Kintaro might say. 101 isn't quite a record, but it's the first time in a decade that the total has reached three figures, and only the fourth basho overall (among basho where all-division data is available, of course). It's the first time in the current kimarite era that okuridashi has accounted for more than 4% of bouts. Three fairly uncommon kimarite made their first appearance of the year in this basho. On Day 4, Hokutosato managed to back Omura out of the dohyo for an ushiromotare win, and then Kobayashi turned the tables on Asayokomichi with a harimanage throw. And on the following day, Ota had a non-technique tsukite win as Chiyooume's hand touched down on Day 5 (with a second tsukite following on Senshuraku). Kimarite from kettei-sen bouts are not included in the statistics.

  8. Sansho and yusho points are not being shown on the Hoshitori results page, although I don't know if it's just a display issue and all the calculations are final. Worth checking though as there's only a single point between the top two.
  9. And breaking Jumonji's record for oldest Makushita yusho winner, as a result: Oiwato 2017 Natsu 36 years, 0 months, 8 days Jumonji 2010 Nagoya 34 years, 1 month, 14 days Fukudayama 1964 Hatsu 32 years, 6 months, 8 days Nakao 2005 Nagoya 32 years, 5 months, 9 days Ryuko 1972 Aki 31 years, 8 months, 13 days Amanoyama 1985 Nagoya 31 years, 6 months, 21 days
  10. Reports of Takanoiwa being kyujo for Day 12. I did wonder about that possibility, he seemed to be moving awkwardly after his loss to Kagayaki yesterday. Harumafuji will get a very handy free win.
  11. The full schedule for this jungyo has been released, and the rikishi will be on the road for a while again. 21 locations with two of them hosting two-day events. At least there are six non-event days liberally sprinkled throughout the tour. Second year in a row that an event has been held on a university campus (last year the Higashi-Matsuyama event took place in a gymnasium on the Daito Bunka campus, if I recall correctly). This time Aoyama Gakuin's Memorial Hall will play host. July 30th - Gifu, Gifu prefecture July 31st - Kusatsu, Shiga August 1st - Toyota, Aichi August 2nd - Toyama, Toyama August 3rd - Shibata, Niigata August 5th - Sado, Niigata August 6th - Nagaoka, Niigata August 7th - Honjo, Saitama August 8th - Aoyama Gakuin (Shibuya), Tokyo August 10th - Hitachi, Ibaraki August 11th - Kaminoyama, Yamagata August 12th/13th - Sendai, Miyagi August 15th - Aomori, Aomori August 16th - Itayanagi, Aomori August 18th - Eniwa, Hokkaido August 19th - Sapporo, Hokkaido August 20th - Asahikawa, Hokkaido August 23rd/24th - Odaiba, Tokyo August 25th - Odawara, Kanagawa August 26th - Tokorozawa, Saitama August 27th - KITTE Basho, Tokyo And the artistic version:
  12. Tsugaruumi was listed on the Kyokai's shikona change page though, which doesn't happen for those subtle error corrections. There was further discussion about it in the banzuke thread of the time, starting here.
  13. I bet Tokitenku used to look up such statistics when plotting a ketaguri... If nothing else it tells us that Sokokurai is able to lead with either leg first. I've never done sumo of course, but thinking back to days on the school athletics track, my first step out of the sprint blocks was always with the right foot. I never even considered leading with the left, but I'm sure I would've fallen flat on my face.
  14. If Kotoyuki does participate tomorrow after his fusenpai, he'll be the first sekitori to do that twice (the list of previous cases was posted last year after Kagamio joined the club). And if he's unable to compete tomorrow, he'll be the 7th sekitori to get two consecutive fusenpai in the 15-day era. Of course, he could make history twice in one fell swoop by getting the second fusenpai tomorrow and then competing on Day 11...
  15. Endo's victory over Kisenosato the other day made him the 4th rikishi to win the maiden kinboshi from two Yokozuna, having previously done the same to Kakuryu. He follows Masuiyama 1 (defeated Haguroyama and Maedayama), Kairyuyama (Taiho and Kashiwado, in the same basho) and Akinoshima (Asahifuji and Musashimaru). As for Kisenosato, he was the 9th Yokozuna to reach double-digit wins against Maegashira before giving up his first kinboshi. The record is held by Wajima, who won his first 29 Maegashira bouts (interrupted after 21 by a fusenpai). 1) Wajima 29 2) Hokutoumi 17 3) Takanohana 16 4) Futabayama 14 =) Kitanofuji 14 =) Hakuho 14 7) Terukuni 13 8) Chiyonoyama 10 =) Kisenosato 10 10) Takanosato 9 =) Asahifuji 9
