  1. Favorite J-Pop Bands

    and i didn't learn my lesson, Scandal is here in September, going GA again. one advantage, cause i will go solo, it is much easy to socialize in GA.
  2. Favorite J-Pop Bands

    it was a pretty good show. general admission you didn't see so much of the girls, but the band has a killer sound!
  3. Heya sizes

    after watching John's interview with Akebono, one question came to mind. what is the largest heya, in the number of rikishi. Akebono shares that in the old days a stable could have a 100 rikishi and there were fewer stables....

  7. Favorite J-Pop Bands

    I am going to see Baby Metal next week. Kind of stoked to see what the show will be like. I am not a huge fan but to have a chance to go, why not. I am a fan of Scandal too. They have a show coming to town in September. Haven't seen them live either. What about y'all? Anyone with a J-Pop band they like?
  8. Yae no Sakura

    i finally figured out what got me to watch Yae No Sakura to begin with. Kuroki Meisa is in it!
  9. Japan Times Sumo Column Request

    deep background on sekitori. helpful background on rising rikishi. in those stories, personal stories, something that makes them seem like regular folks. ideally, these stories would be based on face-to-face interviews. i can find all sorts of stuff online, but unless i am looking in the wrong place, in-depth stories are few and far betweeen.
  10. å…ƒTakatoriki activities (beaten up)

    any update on how many of his restaurants are still open. went to the one at makuhari messe several years back. it was pretty good.
  11. What other sports do you watch?

    Rugby Union. NFL. Baseball.

  13. No Sumo on DISH Tv!

    this might be overload. this service gives you access to japanese tv, realtime and dvr. https://twitter.com/ILoveJapaneseTV
  14. Chiyo brothers

    Cousins too? No kidding.
  15. How can I meet a rikishi?

    visit Fujishima stable for morning practice. after practice some of the rikishi will be hanging outside, not the top rankers, but regular rikishi. or go to a senshuraku party.
