    Abi's win today was the seventh kinboshi to be won on Day 14. It was also the first kinboshi by a Maegashira 6 since Gagamaru defeated Harumafuji in 2015 Natsu. For a M6w specifically, the last was almost 32 years ago in 1990 Natsu when Kotonishiki defeated Hokutoumi.

  2. A quartet of sekitori are sitting this basho out from the start, one unlucky and three naughty. M7e Takayasu - due to positive COVID tests within Tagonoura-beya, which is kyujo as a whole. M8e Hidenoumi - suspected of illegal gambling. J4e Asanoyama - continuing to serve his six-basho suspension for breaching COVID regulations last year. J12e Shiden - suspected of illegal gambling. Lower division absentees, with Tagonoura-beya separate: Ms1e Kyokushuho Ms48w Anzai Sd6e Hagiwara Sd20e Kaiho Sd24w Kiritsubasa Sd31e Shimoyama Sd68w Kasugaryu Sd71w Miyabishin Sd73e Sadanogo Sd88e Nogami Sd92e Shimanishiki Sd94w Nishihara Sd99w Shogun Jd2w Wakaseido Jd3e Mifuneyama Jd7e Wakayamanaka Jd15e Nankairiki Jd24e Hitoshi Jd32w Toho - retired after last basho but not on the official list, danpatsu-shiki took place last month Jd52e Fujiizumi Jd52w Yashiroumi Jd53e Kotorikisen Jd53w Hokutosora Jd57w Wakaonehara - had his arm in a sling in recent heya pictures Jd77w Shunpo Jd83w Takataisho - currently in rehabilitation following knee surgery Jd86w Machi Jk9w Asadaimon Jk14e Wakayama Jk15e Sadatsuyoshi Tagonoura-beya: Sd12w Kaishin Sd40e Akashifuji Sd54e Kojikara Sd98e Sekizuka Jd6w Takanoryu Jd24w Iitsuka Jd37e Matsugi Jd45w Tagomaru Jd84w Takasu Jd98w Ojiyama Jd100e Terunosato Jk5e Shishimaru Jk10e Matsuzawa Gyoji - Kimura Takao Yobidashi - Mitsuaki Tokoyama - Tokonaru

    Ahead of the final round of lower division action, one rikishi makes a late entry and one withdraws. Entering: Sd88e Nogami - I wonder, one last ride as a member of Oguruma-beya before hanging up his mawashi? Withdrawing: Ms34e Obara (fusenpai Day 12) Unusual to have no Jonokuchi rikishi entering in order to stay on the banzuke. Provided they don't retire, Jk9w Asadaimon, Jk14e Wakayama and Jk15e Sadatsuyoshi will be banzuke-gai in March. (Jk5e Shishimaru and Jk10e Matsuzawa are from COVID-kyujo Tagonoura-beya and will presumably maintain their rank)

    M17w Kaisei is kyujo from Day 12, due to the left ankle sprain suffered in his last bout. Juryo visitor Kagayaki will get the fusensho which secures his kachi-koshi and repromotion to Makuuchi.

    Press reporting that M9w Shimanoumi and M10e Myogiryu are both kyujo from Day 11. Endo and Wakamotoharu will get the free wins.

    Just one withdrawal from the lower divisions ahead of the Day 11/12 round of action: Sd49e Amatsu - the heya reports a leg injury.

    The seven newcomers were joined by banzuke-gai returnees Takatairiku and Chiyotsurugi for five sessions of maezumo. The unfortunate Chiyotsurugi ended up with the dubious honour of an 0-8 record, although I thought he was unlucky in the very first bout, which might have been a torinaoshi if it was a regular torikumi. For me, Wakanosho looks like the most capable of the bunch at the moment, with Kototebakari perhaps having the best prospects in the longer term. Hanafusa looks quite solid but a late growth spurt to add a few centimetres would be handy I think. Toseiryu finished 3-0 despite a well-taped left shoulder, but two of the wins came against Chiyotsurugi. As Katooshu already implied, Iwakiri/Satsumasho seems quite average and all three of his wins came against Chiyotsurugi. I wasn't particularly impressed by Kotokenryu either who also got his three wins against the returnees. It's harsh to judge them entirely based on maezumo though, we'll see how they all fare in the long term. I'm not sure all the numbers reported by Totorofuji are quite correct, after going through the videos I have Wakanosho and Satsumasho both finishing at 3-2. Anyway here are the results and standings as I see them, corrections welcome. Day 3, Session 1 X Chiyotsurugi Takatairiku O X Kotokenryu Daiseizan O O Hanafusa Satsumasho X O Kototebakari Wakanosho X X Chiyotsurugi Toseiryu O Day 4, Session 2 X Chiyotsurugi Satsumasho O X Kotokenryu Wakanosho O O Hanafusa Takatairiku X O Kototebakari Daiseizan X O Toseiryu Wakanosho X Day 5, Session 3 X Chiyotsurugi Kotokenryu O O Daiseizan Takatairiku X X Satsumasho Wakanosho O X Hanafusa Kototebakari O X Chiyotsurugi Toseiryu O Day 6, Session 4 X Hanafusa Daiseizan O X Chiyotsurugi Wakanosho O O Kotokenryu Takatairiku X X Chiyotsurugi Satsumasho O Day 7, Session 5 X Kotokenryu Hanafusa O X Chiyotsurugi Satsumasho O O Kotokenryu Takatairiku X Final Standings Kototebakari Sadogatake 3-0 Toseiryu Tamanoi 3-0 Daiseizan Arashio 3-1 Wakanosho Tokiwayama 3-2 Hanafusa Nishonoseki 3-2 Satsumasho Oitekaze 3-2 Kotokenryu Sadogatake 3-3 > Takatairiku Tokiwayama 1-4 > Chiyotsurugi Kokonoe 0-8

    Sorry it's a bit late, I was away yesterday and was too tired when I finally got home. Ahead of Day 9 there were four more withdrawals from the lower divisions: Ms6w Kotodaigo - as noted by Kintamayama above, he was wheeled away after what seemed like a left leg injury in his last bout on Day 7. Ms23e Ishizaki Jd34e Seigo (fusenpai Day 8) - he was back in action this basho after three consecutive kyujo, so this is really unfortunate. Jd58w Takatsukasa (fusenpai Day 8)

    A third-generation torikumi takes place on Day 7 as Oho and Kotonowaka meet for the first time. Their grandfathers met 26 times in a rather one-sided rivalry, while their fathers ended up all square after 40 bouts.

    Ahead of Day 7, another Day 1 defaulter returns to make his first proper appearance of the basho, while two more rikishi are out. Returning: Ms32e Asonoyama (fusenpai Day 1, withdrew Day 3) Withdrawing: Ms5w Kyokutaisei (fusenpai Day 5) - as reported above, left knee injury. Sd49w Denzan

  12. Nikkan confirms the approaching relocation of Hanaregoma-beya - construction of the new building in Adachi-ku is scheduled to be completed in February, and is a five-minute walk from Rokucho Station on the Tsukuba Express line.

    Due to a herniated lumbar disc, requiring up to 5 weeks of rest.

    Lower divisions ahead of Day 5, a pair of rikishi "return" for their first actual appearances, and one more withdraws. Entering/Returning: Sd87w Iko (fusenpai Day 1, withdrew Day 3) Jd23e Shinyashiki (fusenpai Day 1, withdrew Day 3) Withdrawing: Ms21e Oshoumi (fusenpai Day 3) - as reported above, a repeat of his left shoulder injury from last basho.

    Jiji reports that Ozeki Takakeisho is kyujo from Day 4, no reason given yet. Kiribayama will get a fusensho.

    Or to drop the shikona for a moment - Daiki Sue vs. Daiki Hisasue

    Tokiwayama-beya adds that his shikona given name is Eido (栄道, えいどう), likely referring to him coming from Saitama Sakae. Meanwhile, Arashio-beya reports that Asuhada's shikona is Daiseizan Daisuke (大青山 大介, だいせいざん だいすけ). It is surely in honour of the Daqing Mountains (same kanji), an alternate name for the Yin Mountains which cross Inner Mongolia.
  18. Araiso-oyakata (former Ozeki Wakashimazu) has reached mandatory retirement, and the press report that he will remain with the Kyokai as a sanyo.

    Five withdrawals from the lower divisions ahead of Day 3: Ms32e Asonoyama (fusenpai Day 1) - as reported by Akinomaki above, a knee injury in asageiko Ms37w Fukushima (fusenpai Day 2) - Nishikido-beya is kyujo due to COVID Ms57e Wakanoumi (fusenpai Day 2) - ditto Sd87w Iko (fusenpai Day 1) Jd23e Shinyashiki (fusenpai Day 1) Nishikido-beya gyoji Kimura Kintaro is also off the torikumi-hyo, and I assume their blanket withdrawal also covers yobidashi Tsurutaro and tokoyama Tokonaka too.

    Iwakiri is from Kagoshima and has been given the shikona Satsumasho (薩摩翔, さつましょう), in honour of the pre-Meiji Satsuma Province which is now western Kagoshima prefecture. He attended Kagoshima Commercial High School before going on to Nihon University, so he should feel at home in Nichidai-led Oitekaze-beya. He was in the Nichidai sumo club but perhaps didn't play a major part in their competitive teams, as I don't find his name in our amasumo section.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    Shusshin, given name and a few kana errors. Moji's shusshin information was broken at some point. His original shusshin of Wakayama-ken, Arida-shi (和歌山県有田市) is missing, and there's an extra Hyogo-ken on there at the moment. Hishuyama's given name Keiji (けいじ) is correct on the English side but is wrongly shown as Keijiro on the Japanese side. Kojikara's kana reading should be こぢから. A bit late after his shikona change, but Sekizukayama's kana reading should have been せきづかやま. Yurikisho has one too many elongations, it should be ゆりきしょう. There's an extra kana in Wakakaneko's profile, it should be わかかねこ. Yanagida's given name is shown as こうめい on his heya website profile. Asakiryu's given name was cut to just Ryu (りゅう) according to his heya website profile.

    Banzuke for Hatsu 2022

    The Kyokai quietly corrected Watanabe's shikona change - the reading is Akikaze (あきかぜ) instead. No problems on the database which has picked up the correction, either automatically or thanks to Doitsuyama.

    Five new recruits in total. Sue's shikona will be Toseiryu (東誠竜, とうせいりゅう). The five will be joined by the two foreign shindeshi held over from last basho, Arashio-beya's Ashuhada and Sadogatake-beya's Bilguun - the full shikona of the latter has been revealed as Kotokenryu Takeaki (琴拳龍 武明, ことけんりゅう たけあき).
