    Ex-Taka-twins activities

    Ex-Takagenji apparently is in contact with RIZIN, he watched an event on the 28th and RIZIN declared they are in contact with him, so he may join his brother as MMA fighter after all. On Instagram stories he made some replies to the negative comments he got on the net about allegations he had made about Takanohana-beya on Takatoriki's channel, the heya had taken money for the chanko, 2000 yen per day, Takanohana hadn't talked to him for months after being angry with him etc. https://www.tokyo-sports.co.jp/sports/sumou/3828806/

    Sumo for kids

    This gets more and more frequent lately, so I create a topic for it. A sumo class held by young Arashio-beya rikishi at a primary school in Hyuga city, Miyazaki.

    New kesho mawashi

    MItakeumi gets a new one from his locals in Agematsu, from the Agematsu genki-kai (as a pun also: Is Agematsu genki(lively)?). It shows the town character Taro-kun, from the tale of Urashima Taro, catching a tai (the yusho fish) at the Nezame no toko gorge, the local tourist attraction. It looks like the fishing line snapped and the tai escapes (another failed yusho), but the designer explained it is not cut, it is the sun reflection on the fishing line: with the hope he gets the yusho fish for hatsu and gives a boost to the ozeki run (a tai is also used for ozeki and yokozuna promotion celebrations - double fish with a yusho). http://www.shinmai.co.jp/news/article/CNTS2021112900789

    New kesho mawashi

    Masunoyama (21) got a new kesho mawashi from his local koenkai with the image character of his home town Chiba, Sakae-cho, the dream dragon mascot Drum/Doramu: D(o)ra<gon><Drea>m(u). The source is that during the Nara period, when the town suffered from a drought, the legend tells that a dragon rose to the sky and let it rain (which is the profession of the Asian dragons). Masunoyama: "Following this, I want to rise up the banzuke. I want to reach sanyaku." He will rise up to the upper half of maegashira next basho (w13 with 11 wins). "I will meet strong opponents, therefore I want to do my sumo with all my strength."

    Kensho Kyushu 2021

    They could have placed Pokemon kensho on all 10 2nd half bouts, but they only placed them on the last 9. 4, 3, 5, 5, 4, 4, 4, 4, 3 + the 2 usual kensho - the pattern was according to game groups, regardless of who was in the bout, I had expected a bit more on the last bout.

    Kensho Kyushu 2021

    New pokemon kensho banners will be wandering around the dohyo in Kyushu, but only on day 15. Banner design - for Kyushu they are the package design from the historical Pocket monster games, the first 2 are from the initial one, Pocket monster red-green of 1996 More than 200 kensho will appear at the Hatsu basho, every day this time, showing different pokemon. The 2 kensho on the right thus are for Hatsu and won't appear in Kyushu.

    Corona and sumo

    If the shisho decides that it is possible, visiting asa-geiko is allowed from tomorrow till the 12th next month. http://www.sankei.com/article/20211128-D25Q5OPSDRP63PISPOKGIHMDGI/ Punishment in sumo is always for rule infraction, not for the damage caused, see the driving ban - the inconsistency of the rules is what I'm criticizing. Corona rules are idiotic and chaotic all over the world, the NSK with its change every 2 weeks is simply average among that.
