    Next year they'll return, Petals that blossomed and fell, But our spring comes once. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Footprints in the sand, Washed away by time's grey tide, Were there nonetheless.

    Toyonoshima intai

    When i first started watching Sumo and i didn't know any wrestlers, (A situation i'm back at again from long absence, but that's by-the-by), i was instantly intrigued by Toyonoshima's Kesho-Mawashi, with the whale design, and then later i came to really enjoy his style and skill. I wish the best of luck to him. https://i.imgur.com/Id2LOS4.png

    Does anybody know where they are?

    Do you play it? I tried, but after years of league of legends i could not get used to the idea of some spells being so long-range, they can hit you from Mars.

    Gold is so last year, No food but lots of bog-roll. The new currency.

    soap on a rope

    It's much to cool to use :) It reminds me of a morning in my kitchen many years ago, when on entering, knowing i had left some scented soaps in the shapes of little fish on the table, from my first visit to Germany. There was in one of the fish, the shape of a big, almost cartoon-like bite that someone had taken from it, the excuse my father later gave (there could only be one person to do that and i had already guess who) was that he thought it was marzipan.

    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    Homasho! That's him :) Thanks for reminding me as i'd have never got it. He was another of the first few rikishi that stood out for me.

    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    He was one of the very first wrestlers i noticed when i started watching Sumo regularly, back in 2011 or so i think it was, and he was an old veteran even then. There's another rikishi in my mind from that time but sadly i don't remember his name, all i have to go on is that he was stoutly built rather than fat, had a strong tachi-ai, worked the belt and never used henka, he also had the most elegant bow of any rikishi i have seen.
  14. I remembered how much i miss Takanoyama after watching that tribute video of his on youtube, and then thought that there's probably still a Harumafuji-shaped hole in Sumo today, at least for me.
