    That's the one who enters the shot from the left at about 4:45, I presume? Very Musashimaru-like indeed.

    Oh, alright! In that case, then long term Y/O rikishi will definitely have an advantage over your average maegashira dweller - considering that not only they're supposed to be better, but losing their position in makuuchi is also either much more unlikely (O) or downright impossible (Y).

    If you mean the table that @Doitsuyama posted just above, then I believe you're thinking of "% of basho spent in makuuchi" rather than "maegashira".

    Cheers! That's true. Endo, as he currently is, doesn't look like he's got much left in the tank to get back into sanyaku - but barring a sudden decrease in performance (injury induced or not) he doesn't look like he's even close to being pushed out of makuuchi. EDIT Made the calculations and, assuming he'll continue as maegashira for the foreseeable future, his percentage will only go over 83% when he's 44/53. Next basho is a given, so he'll need 4 more after that.

    Cheers! I'm checking now - furthering into the "ifs", it could have been 64 if it wasn't for a one-off juryo appearance early in the run - after going kyujo for a full basho at M8. After those two lower sanyaku basho that broke his longest run of 37, he duly put in 19 more maegashira basho before his body couldn't take it anymore. He might not have the longest runs, but's probably got everyone beat when it comes to "% of career basho spent as a maegashira", which was helped by his speedy rise from a makushita tsukedashi spot.

    I could've sworn Takekaze would've been in such a top 10...

    More shockingly, he was even lending a hand to others so that they wouldn't fall off the dohyo!

    Thankfully common sense still prevails at times.

    Terunofuji's 36 wins in an ozeki run is just one short of the all-time record of 37 held by 4 people, most recently Tochinoshin. What a travesty it'd be to deny him. Source

    Is it possible to switch jobs in ozumo?

    A bunch of rikishi switched over to oyakata over the years and I'll show myself out now.

    Inosuke made it his life mission to stop Shodai's tawara magic on senshuraku bouts.

    The fact he stayed as an upper makushita in that situation was already mighty impressive.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2021

    Here's hoping that Bushozan gets to luck out with a 14e -> 14w demotion if he finishes with a 7-8. On performance alone, he deserves another chance to assert himself in juryo.
