    Kimarite Statistics - 2020 Haru

    At the end of the bout Hakuyozan overbalances and steps out while Tobizaru is some distance away. I suppose it could have been called tsukiotoshi, it seems like that was the push that ultimately led to Hakuyozan losing his balance, but given the separation between the rikishi I can see why they chose fumidashi instead.

    Kimarite Statistics - 2020 Haru

    Hello all, here are the kimarite statistics for all divisions in this most unusual basho, which ended with a not-so-unusual Makuuchi yusho winner as Yokozuna Hakuho took his 44th title. Full marks to the Kyokai for managing to hold the basho at all. Nankairiki might have lost out on the Sandanme yusho to his junior stablemate Ura, but as a consolation prize he did chalk up the 17th uchimuso win of his career. No video of that one, unfortunately, but it does draw him level with Futagodake for most uchimuso (in the available records, of course). Matsuda reached double figures on Day 3 when he recorded the 10th nichonage win of his career, leaving him just one short of Mori's record. Sawada picked up an izori win on the middle Sunday, toppling Hokutosato after being pushed back to the edge of the dohyo. Kizenryu is well known as an uwatenage specialist, collecting a whopping 141 wins with an overarm throw so far. By contrast he rarely wins with an inside grip - this basho he got only the 9th shitatenage win of his career (and the first in nearly six years) with a lovely throw at the edge, turning Ryusei's forward drive against him. Another rikishi moving into double figures in this basho was Urutora, who was in good form for a 5-2 kachi-koshi. Three of those wins came with an ashitori leg grab, taking his career total to 10. Roll your eyes as I recycle the same joke I made a year ago - Osaka gives osakate its maiden appearance of the year. While some rare kimarite appeared in this basho, two others drew a rare blank in Osaka. The basho average for kainahineri has declined from 6 to 4 during the last decade, and this was the 8th basho it hasn't been used in the last six years. Also, it was only the 3rd basho in which kakenage has gone unused. Kimarite from kettei-sen bouts are not included in the statistics.

    His successor Tamanofuji also had a spell out of the Kyokai, although I don't think he was kicked out, rather he left to join the defence forces and returned after being discharged from that.

    Retirees after Haru 2020

    I wasn't sure what kind of intai list to expect this time - families wouldn't be able to come and cheer on the retiring rikishi or hand over flowers in the hanamichi, and most heya cancelled or dramatically scaled down their senshuraku parties. So I found only a single picture - Bariki with his first and last oichomage, listening to a speech from Shikoroyama-oyakata (former Sekiwake Terao) ahead of his danpatsu-shiki. Only heya members and a few invited connections took part. Osaka native Kasugamine retires at his home basho after a 20-year career, in which he was ever-present for 833 consecutive bouts. His danpatsu-shiki took place at Fushio Kaku onsen in Ikeda, where Nakagawa-beya had their lodgings for the basho. If any pictures emerge I'll add them.

    Latest kabu-babu changes

    Now officially acknowledged, both per February 1: http://www.sumo.or.jp/IrohaKyokaiInformation/detail?id=337 http://www.sumo.or.jp/IrohaKyokaiInformation/detail?id=338 Still kabu on loan for ex-Tenkaiho. Otowayama has been moved above the other myoseki borrowers on the Kyokai's oyakata list.

    New recruits for Haru 2020

    One of the new yobidashi was pictured by the Kyokai, along with another newcomer who was learning the job in the hanamichi during this basho. Presumably he will officially join for the Natsu basho. I also expect a new gyoji for Natsu, he was observing in the background of most of the maezumo sessions under the watchful eye of instructors Kimura Yonosuke and Kimura Motoki. From left: Shintaro, Yuta, unnamed apprentice, Mamoru, Soichi.

    Lower-division Torikumi Haru Basho 2020

    Two more long-running rivalries added another chapter in this basho, making four over-40s bouts in total, a new record. On Day 4, Fujinokaze finally got his first win over Tenichi, having lost the previous four bouts in their 18-year head-to-head. 44 Fujinokaze (Jd17e) 0-1 Tenichi (Jd18e) 0-1 On Senshuraku, Satonofuji extended his winning streak to 4-0 against Terunosato. And whether or not that 18-year gap I noted above was a record, it was surpassed by these two - their first encounter was in the 1996 Kyushu basho, but they didn't meet again for exactly 20 years, both bouts taking place on November 22nd. 22 Terunosato (Jd43e) 1-5 Satonofuji (Jd39w) 1-5

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Haru

    J9w Hoshoryu will miss his final bout due to lower back pain, requiring several days of rest and treatment. Kotoyuki will be the lucky recipient of a kachi-koshi clinching fusensho.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    With a 5-2 kachi-koshi from this basho, Yoshii will become only the seventh rikishi to make his Makushita debut as a 16-year-old (since 1972, when completion of junior high school became mandatory). At 16 years, 8 months and 28 days when the banzuke is released, he will be the third-youngest following Asahizakura and Takahanada. The last 16-year-old Makushita rikishi was Hagiwara (Kisenosato) in 2003 Nagoya, although he turned 17 in between the banzuke release and the start of the basho. Yoshii defeating Matsuda today: Meanwhile down at the bottom of the rankings, Hattorizakura will tomorrow be the 11th rikishi in the seven-bout era to fight eight bouts twice, having previously done so this time last year. Then as now his extra opponent was a late-entering rikishi - the odds are good that Chiyotaiho makes Hattorizakura the first to finish 0-8 twice.

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Haru

    In the last update for the lower divisions, two Jonokuchi rikishi make a late entry in order to remain on the banzuke: Jk15w Shiryu Jk20e Chiyotaiho Osumifuji, Fujinonami, Yutakanami, Bariki and Tetsubisho will therefore drop off the banzuke (assuming they remain active). Good catch, thanks! As you probably guessed I only queried those who had a fusen loss, I forgot that isn't a requirement in a toriteki kyujo.

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Haru

    Just to catch up, there was one other change ahead of Day 11. Withdrawing: Sd84e Tochihayate (2-3, fusenpai Day 10) The winner of that fusen bout was none other than returning Kyokuyuko, I think he's the first rikishi since Kotoyutaka in 2012 Kyushu to benefit from a fusensho immediately on returning to the basho.

    New recruits for Haru 2020

    Nakajima received a shikona at the niban shussehiro, he is now Kirinohana (霧乃華). NHK and the press articles include absent Watanabe with the shikona Kaihiryu (魁陽龍, かいひりゅう), the middle kanji is the first from his given name. That turns out to be Daishoko (大翔洸, だいしょうこう), it was a bit clearer in the Day 5 video I thought.

    Rikishi Status - 2020 Haru

    Ahead of Day 9, two of the earlier withdrawals return, and a former Juryo withdraws. Returning: Ms22e Tomisakae (see below) Sd79e Kyokuyuko Withdrawing: Mk39w Keitenkai - his left knee buckled at the edge in his last bout, although he had only a slight limp as he walked out so hopefully it's not serious. I can only guess Tomisakae's arm injury wasn't as bad as it seemed - this really doesn't look like someone who would be back after a few days. (Sorry for the poor quality)
