    Kotonowaka kyujo, his 2nd overall, reason yet unknown. Takayasu gets the fusensho. https://www.jiji.com/jc/article?k=2021092100600&g=spo

    A follow up, Rinnosuke in his first year was team member of the Kashiwa team at the national middle school championships, as taisho, the last of the three. They made it to the sf, there his two teammates both lost. His bout was not shown, it was rather meaningless, since the team already lost, but I guess he lost as well, else they would have shown it. https://www.news24.jp/articles/2021/09/20/07942687.html

    It surely would be pointed out at the programs that check for wrong uses of Japanese that have recently increased, but I have heard it several times, from Japanese. In the past that is, maybe it has disappeared again, like the trends in youth languages change. Written it should be 約, 7日 ni ... Edit: for those who have no idea what this Japanese language talk is about, the word yaku is a very flexible word, usable on its own. The other 2 are looking at the word connected to the date, in which case it is a totally wrong use. In the way I use it, it is only loosely connected with the date, and actually with the result the sentence as a whole is going to express (e.g. the work will be done). The date just happens to appear in front of the word yaku. It still remains a doubtful use of Japanese, mostly hobo would be a better word. I think we don't have to disturb this thread further with off topic talk

    Still Nagatanien, so Terunofuji has only three sets and will use the big sponsor set for seven days

    Yaku nanoka (ni) 約7日 is not that unusual, around the 7th (of the month). A different meaning of course.

    I forgot to save the kensho data for day 7, if someone has them, please post day 7. The Morinaga-sho like every day was on Terunofuji. On Sundays Nagatanien puts 2 extra kensho on a special bout, today it was on Ura-Tobizaru.

    I made the wrong conclusion from the article, Terunofuji used the Nagatanien set also today. Nikkan wrote he used it for three days, shiyou 使用, which can mean that's it, but also for possibly more days.

    Yes, he got better day by day. On day 3 I actually thought: What is that talk that the dohyo-iri is something that strains him and could shorten his career. This sumo kata strengthens his lower body and his knees as well, aids his balance and makes him focus on being the yokozuna, way above the others.
