  1. Here's my shot at the top of Makushita: Makushita Banzuke East Rank West Ishizaki Ms1 Tomokaze Tamashoho Ms2 Chiyonoo Tochikamiyama Ms3 Tokushoryu Kamito Ms4 Shiden Kawazoe Ms5 Dewanoryu Tochiseiryu Ms6 Tsukahara Fujiseiun Ms7 Tokihayate Tanabe Ms8 Chiyonoumi Chiyoarashi Ms9 Tochikodai Otsuji Ms10 Yago
  2. I haven't figured out the Ms demotion system yet, but I have Fujiseiun and Tokihayate still hanging around in addition to Tsukahara. I wonder why you demoted Hakuyozan over Kaisho? Both should now be saved from demotion by Yutakayama's intai. I didn't consider Tokushoryu as a Ms-joi candidate. Maybe I should. FWIW I have Kawazoe ahead of Dewanoryu.
  3. I find it impossible to assemble a banzuke without Abi at K2w. Otherwise there are too many conflicts in the upper maegashira ranks. The banzuke committee will face the same problem.

    7th KK -- fixed. Hopefully that's the only error among all these numbers.

    Honorable mentions for Hokuseiho and Ishizaki with with 6 and 5 straight KK, respectively, since hitting the wall.

    The Wall

    Kyushu 2022 - Final Kinbozan remains atop The Wall with a final day victory to achieve his KK. Kototebakari takes the #2 position with the best record among 5-basho rikishi. Kazakeno leads all 4-basho rikishi while Takahashi and Kazuto share the lead for 3-basho rikishi. J7w Kinbozan: 8-7 (7 KK, 48-17) Sd, Ms yusho Ms18e Kanzaki: 3-4 (4 KK, 24-11) Sd yusho Ms37e Kototebakari: 5-2 (5 KK, 29-5-1) Jk, Jd yusho Ms45w Kayo: 6-1 (4 KK, 22-6) Ms51e Wakanosho: 2-5 (4 KK, 25-10) Ms51w Hatsuyama: 5-2 (5 KK, 24-10-1) Sd4w Hanafusa: 3-4 (4 KK, 25-10) Sd18w Kazekeno: 6-1 (4 KK, 24-4) Jk yusho Sd21w Kotokenryu: 3-4 (4 KK, 24-10-1)* Sd22w Toseiryu: 5-2 (5 KK, 25-9-1) Sd32e Tanji: 4-3 (4 KK, 21-7) Sd43w Takahashi: 6-1 (3 KK, 19-2) Jk, Jd yusho Sd48e Wakamiyabi: 4-3 (4 KK, 20-8) Sd66w Kazuto: 7-0 (3 KK, 19-2) Sd77e Arise: 0-7 (3 KK, 15-13) Sd80w Hayashiryu: 2-5 (3 KK, 16-12) Sd81e Rinko: 5-2 (4 KK, 19-9) Sd86e Tatsuosho: 5-2 (4 KK, 20-8) Jd3e Daikinryu: 3-4 (3 KK, 17-11) Jd6w Michihaya: 5-2 (4 KK, 19-9) Jd18w Suyama: 3-4 (2 KK, 13-8) Jd24w Daishimatsu: 3-4 (3 KK, 15-13) Jd30w Kanazawa: 5-2 (3 KK, 17-8-3)* New Kawazoe 5-2 (2 KK, 9-5) former Ms15TD New Otani: 6-1 (2 KK, 13-1) Jk yusho
  7. The biggest question at present for me is how many Komusubis will be on the next banzuke, and who they will be. That picture will become much clearer in the next several days, but at present the odds wold favor just two: Kiribayama and Takayasu.

    Kyushu 2022 discussion (results)

    IIRC, someone already posted a long list of rikishi expected to be kyujo in Kyushu. I can't seem to find it, and Rikishi Status thread has yet to be started. I'd appreciate anyone who could steer me towards that. Thanks!

    Updated/corrected the list. Pretty sure I double-checked it against sumodb before posting, but it could be the error was mine.

    New Juryo for Kyushu

    Well, 6 of 14 is only slightly better than 50/50, so it hasn't been all that consistent since 2012.

    New Juryo for Kyushu

    Yeah, only 6 out 14 demoted since 2012. Very interesting history on this query where the trend was not to demote from 1934 to 1967, and then the very opposite from 1967 to 2012. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query.aspx?show_form=0&form1_rank=j12&form1_wins=6

    New Juryo for Kyushu

    I was referring to the lack of promotion for Shonnanoumi at Ms5w. I thought with 5-2 it was a sure thing.

    New Juryo for Kyushu

    Looking at the DB, last to be promoted to sekitori from MS5 with 5 wins was Chiyoo in Haru 2013. Since since then 14 rikishi have achieved the same without promotion -- very surprising!
