    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.

    Yesterday we saw a rare Day 13 kinboshi, but Kotoshogiku's win today is only the 6th kinboshi to be won on Day 14, and the first to happen away from the Kokugikan(s).

    Just filling in for Fukurou who seems to be kyujo herself at the moment. Here are the absentees for the start of the basho. MAKUUCHI Ozeki Takakeisho M11e Yoshikaze MAKUSHITA Mk6e Chiyonokuni Mk56w Tsushimanada SANDANME Sd1e Tennozan Sd2w Obamaumi Sd62e Fukunofuji Sd64e Tokiryu Sd72e Ariake Sd73e Kotonoumi Sd76w Ura Sd78e Hao Sd88w Sadanohana Sd94w Mitsuuchi Sd97e Surugafuji JONIDAN Jd28w Aomihama Jd48w Nankairiki Jd52e Ryubu Jd56w Wakaseiun Jd80e Chiyotaiyo Jd83e Otsuji Jd90w Kotourasaki Jd95w Tsuyasato Jd97w Mimori Jd98w Denpoya Jd109w Ayaminato JONOKUCHI Jk23w Asahimaru Jk26e Murata Jk33w Taiga Banzuke-gai Omura said when the banzuke came out that his injury was 80% healed and he plans to participate in maezumo (perhaps a one-bout-and-out job). I've also heard Urutora may be ready to begin yet another comeback as well, but we'll have to wait and see if that happens. Odake-beya reported that Sandanme yobidashi Takahiro retired for personal reasons as of May 25th, after 13 years in the job.

    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.

    Lower-division Torikumi Nagoya Basho 2019

    A couple of 40+ bouts this basho. Day 4 saw the 10th overall meeting between Yoshiazuma and Kaonishiki, but for both their first involvement in a 40+ bout. 31 Yoshiazuma (Sd37e) 1-0 Kaonishiki (Sd38w) 1-0 Meanwhile, Day 13 will see Hanakaze and Daigonishiki meet for the second time after a decade apart, for a combined age of 90 years, 10 months and some days - around two months older than the previous record set by Hanakaze and Isenohana in 2018 Hatsu. 16 Daigonishiki (Jd74e) 1-5 Hanakaze (Jd61w) 1-5

    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.

    Looks like the basho will end as an Ozeki-free zone, Nikkan reporting Takayasu as kyujo from Day 11. Hakuho gets the day off. Edit: Meanwhile, the Kyokai says Kaisei is out, which gives Onosho a free win.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Nagoya 2019

    Long-serving Adachi is now 5-0 for only the second time in his 17-year career, so if you like to cheer for an underdog, he's your unlikely Jonidan contender. Not many rikishi have 100 career basho under their family name either.

    Doesn't Akebono hold that record, with 18 kachi-koshi from his debut?

    It was a right knee injury for Konno. I've read that Bariki was (is?) suffering from some kind of deformation in the hip joint. I wonder whether he simply wanted to retire with a banzuke rank? No such change listed at either Sanspo or the Kyokai - I guess the PA gyoji was just mistaken about his name. The NHK graphic concurs with them, so that was just a mistake by the announcer. (Now watch him show up as Suehisa on the Aki banzuke!)

    Kyujo Updates for 2019 Nagoya

    Goeido had pain in the right shoulder ahead of the basho and couldn't train as he wanted, one month of rest and treatment required for rotator cuff damage (右肩腱板不全損傷). A number of withdrawals in the lower divisions ahead of Day 9: Mk21w Masunoyama, fusenpai on Day 7 - struggling with a lower back (or hip) problem before the basho, with no sign of improvement after three bouts (all lost) he and the shisho decided it would be better to withdraw. Sd4w Musashikuni, fusenpai on Day 8 - struggling with an ankle problem before the basho. Sd6e Dewanojo, fusenpai on Day 8 - suffering from a bout of cellulitis. Sd47w Koshinishiki - he was hobbling after his last bout but I don't know what the injury is. Sd81e Okinoiwa Jd10e Miryuzan, fusenpai on Day 8. Jd25e Wakaseido - anterior cruciate ligament in the right knee. But there is some good news with two returnees: Sd48e Daishoki - withdrew on Day 5 Sandanme gyoji Kimura Sakuranosuke has recovered from his leg injury and should be on the dohyo tomorrow.

    Yomiuri reporting that Goeido is kyujo from Day 8. Meisei is set to collect the free win.

    Kimura Konosuke

    In a strange way I could almost be in favour of that - at least then he'd only get to yammer for one bout a day instead of two. He's good at his job and will make tate-gyoji in due course, but he won't be leapfrogging any of his seniors. I'll say this for him as well, he's got style.

    Nagoya 2019 Discussion (here be spoilers)

    Tomokaze seems to have adopted his mentor Yoshikaze's approach at the tachiai, I think every bout this basho he has put both hands down first and waited for his opponent. I never noticed if he was already doing that in previous basho, maybe Yoshikaze's absence caused me to pay more attention to the habits of others.

    Kyujo Updates for 2019 Nagoya

    Four withdrawals ahead of Day 5: Sd15w Komanokuni Sd48e Daishoki - fusenpai on Day 4 Sd100e Yuriki - a well-strapped right ankle which he didn't have in May, but that's just my guess as to the reason for his kyujo. Jd42e Kenho - fusenpai on Day 3, apparently suffered a broken toe in his first bout.

    Five returnees in total then, with the two above joined by Kotoomura, Kochikara and amazingly, Bariki after three years out of action. He looks incredibly uncomfortable though. Galdan's shikona is Hokutenkai (北天海), surely inspired by the late former Ozeki Hokutenyu, who was still an oyakata in Mihogaseki-beya when Hamanoshima (now Onoe-oyakata) entered ozumo. Hasegawa's shikona is Senho (千鵬).

    Videos Nagoya 2019- Promo and Days 1- 15

    Hidenohana's five-basho stint with the bow came a couple of years after he dropped from Juryo. Four rikishi have performed the yumitori-shiki as a sekitori since 1952, when it started to be done at the end of the every honbasho day. The incumbent performer at that time, Oiwazan, was a Maegashira for the first six basho (with a jun-yusho in 1952 Natsu), then three more in Juryo before retiring. His successor Otayama did a lengthy 27-basho stint mostly in Juryo. In the mid-1970s Itakura twirled the bow for nine basho, the last of which was his Juryo debut. He later reached Makuuchi. Then it was Oga as you already found. A number of others were either former sekitori, like Hidenohana, or later became sekitori. As far as I'm concerned the idea of a jinx is nonsense. PS: I don't say it enough but thanks as always for the videos!
  23. Dramatic scenes in Maizuru today as 67-year-old Mayor Ryozo Tatami collapsed on the dohyo while delivering his opening address. Luckily a female doctor was in the audience and performed cardiac massage on the mayor, who was later transported to hospital. A city spokesman said the mayor is conscious and able to talk, so that's good news. EDIT: I'm gonna wipe my other paragraph for now, another article states that fire department staff were standing by with a defibrillator (AED), so the announcement was made to clear the dohyo so that the mayor could receive further treatment backstage. So maybe the announcement wasn't directed at the lady doctor after all.

    Kyujo Updates for 2019 Nagoya

    Rumours of Hitenryu's retirement appear to have been greatly overstated - he fights Hokutoyoshi on the opening day. Musashigawa-beya reports that Ryubu has a knee injury, while Takadagawa-beya's Otsuji says he is out due to a shoulder injury. Sanyaku gyoji Kimura Tamajiro and Sandanme gyoji Kimura Sakuranosuke are kyujo.
