    The only one I remember (in the last decade) was that weird matta call by Hakuhou. Nobody listened him.

    Ouch. This an eventful basho for sure! But contrary to most I don't think that the "new gen" are good enough. I think we'll have some time of really mediocre sumo, with many sumotori in spotlight before any really good one. There's a lot of 26 and 27y old sekitoru that aren't that good (nor that bad) in the upper ranks. A really good one would be Ozeki/Yokozuna by 21-24y old

    Kaisei always was underrated - he have a very good sumo and is the gentliest of sumotori He has some trouble getting a KK as M1, but he get a KK as Komusubi, not a small feat. I really like the Big Guy

    Kaisei, that nice brazilian fellow - the nicest in sumo by far - is a M3 to K at his best. And that's not a demerit, he should always be proud of his S status (that he get after a KK as Komosubi)
