    Abema TV all sumo live

    The link for shonichi (day 1) has been published - I don't like the comment which implies that it is not meant for delayed viewing - hopefully a link for that will appear elsewhere. https://abema.tv/channels/world-sports/slots/8W8CNEEd69AjxT Watching outside of Japan is only possible by setting your browser to a Japanese proxy or with a VPN for that purpose. The discussion so far was in the Kyushu stream thread, starting with this:

    New recruits for Hatsu 2019

    Ooki Shirakawa 白川大貴 (18, 182cm, 160kg) from the Kagawa prefecture Takamatsu Minami high school sumo club enters Oitekaze-beya and will be in the shindeshi kensa for the Hatsu-basho and in maezumo, to have his dohyo debut at the Haru basho (here maezumo does not count). He'll be the 3rd from this school to enter the sumo world. He won the Shikoku high school tournament in June, but lost in the 2nd round of the interhigh best 32 decider http://kirokukensaku.net/0IH18/detail_20180804_12002020260.html just like last year He had thought about proceeding to university, but decided to go for the challenge in ozumo. During primary school he had visited the heya's location for the Haru basho and made the decision to enter Oitekaze-beya. The oyakata: "Depending on his efforts, makuuchi is not just a dream. If he won't get injured, he'll make it to juryo for a start." - he wants him to further polish his specialty oshi-zumo Shirakawa: "Getting used to the environment, without thinking about the future, I want to do my best to concentrate on the one bout after the other in front of me ." http://www.shikoku-np.co.jp/sports/local/article.aspx?id=20181016000133 the oyakata was at the school on the 15th for the announcement
  3. The future doesn't look even a tiny bit bright for Terunofuji. He isn't at the heya's training camp in Sakai now and just concentrates on medical treatment. The left meniscus damage for which he went kyujo is the least of a problem now. Internal diseases is what he has to fight, mainly diabetes and now also hepatitis C is reported. http://www.sponichi.co.jp/sports/news/2018/06/12/kiji/20180612s00005000212000c.html Will he continue in sumo? How long?

    Videos Hatsu 2019- Days 1-3

    Full n h k broadcasts in Japanese: day 2 in HD already disappeared an hour or so ago, and these will likely do so as well soon day 1 from the kyokai go-aisatsu, last juryo, dohyo-iri till the award ceremonies https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5CHRKBfFgo makuuchi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1tMxpHA1AU day 3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92D9xuhEOCY
  5. Takanoiwa has hit his tsukebito 4 or 5 times on the evening of the 4th, because he made excuses for having forgotten something. No injuries, just a swollen cheek. At the jungyo on the 5th in Yukuhashi, the tsukibito was not seen, Takanoiwa was called to Tokyo for questioning by the NSK. http://www.asahi.com/articles/ASLD55TR7LD5UTQP021.html

    Takanoiwa hits his tsukebito

    For 30 000 yen you can have a cut at Takanoiwa's mage and an invitation to the party in the kokugikan afterwards, about 100 fans from the general public are targeted. At Baruto's danpatsu-shiki, this option was sold for 100 000yen to just 10 male members from the general public, so it's cheap - and women are invited as well - not on the dohyo, but with some extra measures (attached ramp or below). Takanoiwa had consented to the idea. To 250-300 related people, invitations have been sent by Chiganoura-beya - the oyakata wants to limit it to 400 people in all. It remains to be seen if Taka keeps his promise and won't meet with Takanoiwa for 10 years or if he'll come to the danpatsu-shiki. http://www.zakzak.co.jp/spo/news/190114/spo1901140002-n1.html

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    The best reason ever for a henka - Terutsuyoshi (from Harumafuji's heya) vs. Takagenji "I had the feeling that the god(s) of sumo told me not to go straight on," - after a false start where he made Takagenji fall on his backside and likely got him angry: "because he might fly into rage and come at me, he's scary then" http://www.daily.co.jp/general/2019/01/15/0011981438.shtml
