    Kensho Aki 2020

    The Morinaga-sho stays with Takakeisho. The 4 kensho from Enho brought Kagayaki into the rankings, 8 in the first place is unusual for him: 4 from Takayasu, 3 from Tokushoryu and even 1 against Aoiyama, so he has a sponsor now, the baito-/part time job- search service company ENTry. Shodai as well gets 1 each day from them, as does Ryuden - full list Day 6 100: Takakeisho (M) 46: Endo 45: Terunofuji 32: Asanoyama 32: Mitakeumi 17: Shodai 16: Takayasu 14: Takanosho 13: Hokutofuji 12: Kagayaki

The NSK explained about scouting and rearing deshi and the hardships of the okamisan and more. 2 meetings are still planned, and the final report to be delivered till March o 7 of the 8 members were present, kabuki actor Matsumoto Hakuo again absent o

    Corona and sumo

    The now traditional (13th) scarecrow festival in Mitsue village, Nara, focused on the Abe-no-mask, which each citizen in Japan had received from the government. This piece is meant to depict Nara new local hero Tokushoryu o with the one who made it - it lacks the proper volume to qualify as bearing resemblance o definitely more scary with mask - but will the crows notice?

    Kensho Aki 2020

    The Morinaga-sho was on Takakeisho-Myogiryu. Tochinoshin after 1 with Yutakayama on day 3, today got the 4 from Takayasu. Enho against Ryuden got 5 today. Onosho so far only got the 3 from Enho on day 4. Meisei would have had his standard 2 against Kyokutaisei - the first canceled kensho this basho. Hoshoryu also got the Manhattan kensho like yesterday, plus the Mochi-kichi one for the first bout - full list Day 5 75: Takakeisho (M) 46: Endo 41: Terunofuji 26: Asanoyama 20: Mitakeumi 15: Shodai 14: Takanosho 13: Takayasu 11: Hokutofuji 11: Myogiryu

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Also Izutsu on Abema hoped for a 13-0 by Onosho - the strict tachi-ai measures after a while again mess up many bouts, but Onosho went through with it on the 3rd try
