    The other hot seat which just had the temperature turned up a few degrees would presumably be that of ex-Kotoyuki, who is now the only loanee borrowing from an active rikishi. I know the retired/deceased loans have expiration dates on them, but ex-Kotoyuki has a myoseki belonging to someone turning 37 in a few weeks. I wonder whether he's actually the next borrower of Kitajin.


    Daishomaru's seven-year sekitori stint has just come to an end, I wonder if he's going to give it one go at getting his salary back or retire if it isn't happening. As a stablemate of the owner, he would likely have first refusal of Kitajin.

    Since it hasn't been mentioned, Shotenro's assumption of Nishikijima is still temporary (i.e, he's not the owner) according to the placements on the Kyokai lists.

  2. Very short list of shikona changes this time, only two in addition to that of shin-Juryo Gonoyama which was announced along with his promotion.

    Sakaigawa-beya's Mizuno is now Zuitenryu, the first kanji is a different reading of the first of his home city, Mizunami in Gifu prefecture. There's a shrine called Tenryu-ji in the city of Kani, also in Gifu prefecture, perhaps that inspired the rest of the shikona?

    Tamanoi-beya debutant Imazeki is now Toshunryu, the middle kanji there is taken from his real given name, Shunsuke.

    J14w Nishikawa > Gonoyama (豪ノ山, ごうのやま)

    Jd57e Mizuno > Zuitenryu (瑞天龍, ずいてんりゅう)

    Jk17e Imazeki > Toshunryu (東俊隆, とうしゅんりゅう)

     

    Two rikishi from Takasago-beya change the given name only. Asanoyama begins his comeback by reverting to his real given name, Hiroki. Meanwhile, his veteran stablemate Asatenmai switches from his real given name to Matazo.

    Sd22w Asanoyama Hideki > Hiroki (広暉, ひろき)

    Sd26e Asatenmai Seita > Matazo (又三, またぞう)

     

    Two rikishi also make shusshin adjustments, although one is rather more long distance than the other.

    Sd30e Kayo - Chiba-ken, Ichikawa-shi > Okinawa-ken, Naha-shi (沖縄県那覇市)

    Jk17e Toshunryu - Tokyo-to, Minato-ku > Tokyo-to, Chuo-ku (東京都中央区)

     

    I don't remember seeing anything about it last basho but it looks like there was a mini-COVID quarantine in Yamahibiki-beya, Jd76w Tenichi and Jd103w Masutani have maintained their ranks from the last banzuke. Tenichi therefore avoids falling to Jonokuchi for the first time since the 1993 Natsu basho, his first basho on the banzuke.

    I'm actually not sure what the physical besseki ranking looked like. Gans-san's site lists them in two columns.


    They were grouped together in a box, from highest-ranked Ayazakura on the right, down to lowest Juryo Ayawaka on the left.

  4. This fusen bout between Nionoumi and Chiyooga got the wrong hoshitori markers.

     

    Oshoma's yusho saw his Kyokai profile get the given name update, and they have it as Deki (でき) rather than Degi, so it looks like Nikkan had that part right after all:

    I saw that reading last night, but I assumed it was a typo. Looking at the heya media just now, they give it as the shorter version, おうしょうま.

     

    I just now noticed that the heya also says the given name reading is Degi (でぎ), not Deki as reported by Nikkan. (Sigh...)

  6. Hi all, here are the kimarite statistics for all divisions in the 2022 Natsu basho.

    Three rare kimarite saw their first usage of the year in this basho, perhaps most notably the tasukizori from debutant Yamato. Later he also added an ashitori win to force a four-man kettei-sen for the Jonokuchi yusho, and won his first bout there with another ashitori, though in the end he missed out on the yusho.

    Day 9 saw a sotokomata from Tanaka, another newcomer, who also contributed one of the five uchigake here, the most in a basho for five years.

    The final day saw veteran Keitenkai use a kozumatori leg pick to topple Kotodaishin, the first time that's been seen in four years.

    Tokkurinage was also used three times, having drawn a blank in the first two basho of 2022. It's only the sixth basho with three or more tokkurinage since it was introduced in the 2001 expansion, the record being five.

    Kimarite from kettei-sen bouts are not included in the statistics.

  8. The retirement of Hokutokawa and Hokutoo was announced just before the banzuke came out, and they held a joint danpatsu-shiki at the heya then. Hokutokawa suffered a neck injury in May last year, and despite his best efforts the rehabilitation has not succeeded to the point where he can do his best sumo. Meanwhile, Hokutoo had a 14-year career and served as tsukebito to the shisho (former Yokozuna Hokutoumi). He plans to work in a Tokyo restaurant in the future.

    Meanwhile, Tsushimanada joins the relatively short list (which I suspect Yubinhaad has at the ready) of makushita rikishi with multiple 8th-bout appearances.


    According to my file he's the 7th Makushita rikishi to fight an eighth bout more than once, and the 15th rikishi overall.

    Down in Jonokuchi, debutant Wakasei also fought an eighth bout on Day 14, making this the 31st basho with two rikishi fighting extra bouts.


    It's more minutiae than asked for, but 2022 Hatsu saw Sawaisamu fight an eighth bout for the second time in his long career, nearly 14 years after the first. That was a 4-4 result, and he's the last active rikishi to have one of those.

    2022 Haru had no extra bouts which ended a run of 11 consecutive basho with them, two basho short of the record.

    Press reporting that M6e Ura is kyujo from Day 14. That would give Wakatakakage a fusensho and kachi-koshi.

    He was visibly uncomfortable after landing on that left leg ... such a shame for Ura.


    Left ankle sprain, three weeks to recover. Ura wanted to stay in, but Kise-oyakata (former Maegashira Higonoumi) put his foot down, saying that if he makes it worse it could end up with an even longer period of treatment.

    In addition, Naruto-beya reports that Sd40w Murayama is also out due to injury, but it must have happened too late for the news to reach the torikumi committee, so Hokutomaru should get a fusensho (and kachi-koshi) from their Day 13 bout.


    Jk1w Fujiizumi, Jk3e Wakaseido, Jk7w Okuyama and Jk21w Chiyonomichi missed the whole basho and will drop off the banzuke, assuming they aren't retiring.

    Tamawashi's kinboshi on day 6 has prompted me to make this thing. It's a list of maegashira who beat one yokozuna three in a row, thus earning kinboshi:

    Yamanishiki vs Miyagiyama
    Tatekabuto vs Minanogawa
    Kotonishiki vs Chiyonoyama
    Narutoumi vs Kagamisato
    Daigo vs Tochinoumi
    Tamawashi vs Terunofuji

    Here is the query I used.


    Kotonishiki did win a kinboshi in three consecutive basho, but the first was not against Chiyonoyama who was absent in 1953 Natsu.

  15. A rare tasukizori in Jonokuchi today, courtesy of Yamato who is now 3-0 in his first basho. He is a graduate of Gifu Norin (Agricultural and Forestry) High School and was runner-up in the 80kg class at a national high school sumo tournament last year. He has won with sori-waza several times in team and openweight competitions during his school years.

  16. A bit late but there was one change ahead of Day 5, Ms37e Omoto began his basho, having been absent at the start. He fights former Maegashira Fujiazuma on Day 6.

    And as mentioned elsewhere, sanyaku gyoji Kimura Tamajiro withdrew on Day 4 due to a herniated disc in his lower back.


  17. All being well, tomorrow will be Satonofuji's 500th yumitori-shiki performance.

    If he continues in the role uninterrupted, he can surpass Edonohana's record in the 2023 Kyushu basho, if my arithmetic is up to scratch. But whether that happens might come down to his own age and declining rank - he is already both the oldest and lowest-ranked performer on record - as well as Terunofuji's tenure as Yokozuna.
