    Haru 2010 Banzke

    Hi all ! (it's been some time...) So, if I understand correctly, it was still possible to write again all makuuchi division (erase Asashoryu, put Hakuho on the East side, and write 20 name on the West side instead of the initial 21). But was it already too late to get one more juryo rikishi promoted to makuuchi, in order to get the usual count of 42 ? This banzuke looks (to me, at least !) so strange as it is right now, so... uneven and unballanced !

    Le Monde du Sumo: the end is near

    Thank you very much for your comforting messages ! Your words are very touching. Now it saddens me even more to know that some of you will be sad to see us go. But, on another hand, it also (sort of) pleases me : I think it means that we didn't do that bad during these 5 years... Thank you for your support.

    Thank you Fujisan ! And sorry bout the popups : we do not have anything to do with them directly (of course, we do not try to earn any money, by any mean), and I suppose they come from the (free) counter we use. But of course I understand that they can be very annoying. That's why I've been searching for a better alternative for some time now... and still am I ! I'm very sorry for the inconvenience !
