  1. Hi all, here at last are the kimarite statistics for this basho, in which Yokozuna Kakuryu produced some of his best sumo for a while to claim his 6th Makuuchi yusho. Elsewhere, Takasago-beya continued their 2019 yusho winning streak, this basho it was Terasawa who clinched the Sandanme yusho in a kettei-sen against veteran stablemate Asatenmai. And Aminishiki finally reached the end of the road, retiring after another knee injury rather than lose his long-held place in the sekitori ranks. Moving on to the techniques, former Maegashira Sagatsukasa had a good win on Day 9 to secure his kachi-koshi - for a moment it looks like he's setting up to launch Wakatakamoto with an ipponzeoi shoulder throw, but then he changes tactic and trips his opponent's leg for a nice chongake win. I thought there might have been an earlier chongake this basho in the bout between Matsuda and Hokutoo, but it seems the leg grab was more instrumental to the win than the trip, so it was recorded as the only watashikomi of the basho instead. Speaking of Matsuda, he was on the losing end of one of the two ushiromotare here. It's only the 7th basho with two or more of those since it was introduced in the 2001 kimarite expansion, and the first since 2016 Hatsu. Unfortunately I didn't find videos of those bouts. Two former judoka put their skills to use in Nagoya and got their first wins of the basho as a result. Hironaka threw Hokutosato with the first ipponzeoi of the year (no video of that one either I'm afraid). Two days later, Ryuga toppled Chida with a slightly slow-motion nichonage. Kaishu will be back in Sandanme again on the next banzuke after a kachi-koshi here which included wins by kekaeshi and uchimuso. It was the first win of his career with either of those moves. There were four amiuchi wins in this basho, only the second time we've seen that many in basho with complete information for all divisions, along with 2014 Nagoya. It was the third amiuchi win already of Toki's career, it'll be interesting to see how many more he can add in the future. There were also four susoharai here, the most in a basho since 2017 Kyushu which saw five. The most notable of them came from yusho winner Kakuryu - it was the second susoharai win of his career, the first one coming 15 years ago! Lastly, I wouldn't usually mention the technique in the notes but I did enjoy this quick bout - former Juryo Keitenkai tries a flying henka and ends up throwing Fukuyama with a fine kotenage. Kimarite from kettei-sen bouts are not included in the statistics (they're actually missing from the database for the moment, f.a.o @Doitsuyama).

    Retirees July 2019

    Hakkaku-beya held a short training camp on Okinoshima, Shimane prefecture following the Nagoya basho, and it was there that Okinoiwa's danpatsu-shiki was held. Rikishi from Isenoumi-beya joined them on the trip.

    Phew... with the corrected results I hang on to my precious Kanto-sho by my fingernails as the last kachi-koshi player, and the only one not to pick yusho winner Kakuryu. Amusingly, in the Natsu basho I was in the opposite position of first make-koshi player.

    Latest kabu-babu changes

    Former Maegashira Shotenro has switched from the Kasugayama myoseki (owned by Ikioi) to the Kitajin myoseki (owned by Endo), it was announced earlier.
  6. Four promotions for the next banzuke, two newcomers and two returnees. Debut: Asagyokusei (朝玉勢, formerly Tamaki) - Takasago-beya - last basho Mk3e, 4-3 Kaisho - Asakayama - Mk4w, 4-3 Return: Seiro - shikoroyama - Mk1e, 5-2 Irodori - Shikoroyama - Mk1w, 4-3 Tamaki's new shikona is nice, the middle kanji is from his family name while the third honours his hometown of Ise, Mie prefecture. Congratulations to Asakayama-beya and Kaisho, the first sekitori for former Ozeki Kaio! I'm surprised he was ahead of Wakamotoharu though.

    After being dead last on Shonichi, what remained of my Hoshitori entry somehow mustered a comeback to clinch the first sansho of my career. Only took 111 basho!

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    Because of the arrows. The are never given to a MK rikishi I don't think that has anything to do with it, on the final day of 2018 Kyushu the third-to-last bout was a make-koshi affair between Kagayaki (5-10) and Ichinojo (6-9).

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    How come Komusubi Abi had the third-to-last bout on senshuraku, with Sekiwake Tamawashi fourth-from-last? Obviously I see that there was more on the line in the Abi-Kotoshogiku 7-7 bout, but I didn't think that could override the rank privilege.

    I'm happy enough with Tomokaze winning the 13th Day 13 kinboshi (although the first one was on the senshuraku of that 13-day basho). In addition, it's the 15th kinboshi won by a rikishi ranked at Maegashira 7, in the second basho of the Reiwa era. The last such kinboshi was won by Itai just over three decades ago in the second basho of the Heisei era, also on Day 13.

    Trivia bits

    As I understand it, Banjaku hurt his knee during a long bout against Tamanishiki, and was unable to resume after it was halted for a mizu-iri. The next day's torikumi having already been set, he wasn't able to participate and got the second fusenpai. After a day off he rejoined the basho, but evidently his knee was in bad shape and he lost his last four bouts. It was his only basho in a sanyaku rank. In the very next basho, Banjaku fought another long bout against Ozeki Kagamiiwa. The bout was halted for a mizu-iri and, still with no result, again for a ni-ban-go torinaoshi. The ageing Kagamiiwa was exhausted and couldn't participate (he would retire after the following basho), but in an admirable display of sportsmanship, Banjaku declined to accept his forfeiture and so the bout was recorded as a double fusenpai.
