  1. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I mean, he beat like 2 yokozuna with henka in his first encounters… or maybe it was Kotoshōgiku + a yokozuna.
  2. Random Bouts

    I was about to ask… but I’d like vids for all bouts mentioned, really.
  3. Trivia bits

    He’s certainly got tons better. I’m actually surprised he’s kept losing as much as he has… he looks like he should start winning some soon.
  4. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Kagayaki has a belt game?! Mitakeumi should’ve gone for a shitatehineri. But props to Ichinojō– I’m not sure if he’s over his injuries or what, but he’s certainly using his size well this basho unlike up to now. Everyone trying to make it easy for Kakuryū. This might just be a boring yūshō… unless Kakuryū keeps the zenshō hopes up. Tochinoshin looks like he’s feeling pain in his injured leg… I hope I’m imagining it. I was expecting that kind of sumō the whole basho from Chiyotairyū but it never happened. Then comes Gōeidō… lol Edit: I didn’t notice Sōkokurai’s knee touching down. Ishiura was already airborne though… maybe should’ve been a torinaoshi? Unless that stuff only matters when you’re out and Ishiura should’ve won…
  5. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Mitakeumi will make yokozuna in 2019. Kakuryū–Tochinoshin was a bit weird. It looked like Tochinoshin didn’t want to have a yotsu battle. I’m a bit sad the latest we can get Kakuryū–Mitakeumi is day 13 (right?). Takayasu and Gōeidō being ōzeki would get days 14 and 15 I think…
  6. Harumafuji scandal thread- part 2

    No one is denying that Takanoiwa looked healthy.
  7. Takanohana-devil's advocate

    1. It’s better than having no hair. 2. We don’t really know what happened. I’m pretty sure by the end there were accounts denying Harumafuji ever mounted Takanoiwa.
  8. Takanohana-devil's advocate

    Undetermined meaning unspecified in this case. We don’t know who he’s talking about and he equates this person to Takanoiwa. Just seems a bit ridiculous to me.
  9. Takanohana-devil's advocate

    Let me interject here and say that what you’re saying is ridiculous. You’re comparing a family member we know nothing about with a top-level professional rikishi, with lots of hair styled in a way that would protect against head impacts. All you’re doing is “guys I have 1 example of some undetermined person going through this so it must be true that Takanoiwa was the same” only because… you don’t like to think that Takanohana could be lying? Your argument holds as much water as anything else. It’s all conjecture. The only real facts we have are a photo of Takanoiwa’s injury and the medical certificates– which go against your theory (sure you can wave them off as incorrect as you already did).
  10. Hakuhou injured.

    I’m blaming the YDC chairman for this btw.
  11. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Tochinoshin!!! That bout can’t have been good for his health… I hope he’s OK. Mitakeumi is ascending. Kisenosato should’ve already been kyūjō. Daiamami was robbed. There were a few rikishi who thought matta today. Chiyotairyū was one of them, giving Kakuryū an easy win. Things not looking good for Isegahama-beya…
  12. Hakuhou injured.

    Is this a joke? I don’t get it.
  13. Hakuhou injured.

    Ouch. I thought it was a lie to save face at first, but rewatching Kita’s video frame-by-frame you can tell he smashes his left big toe into the dohyō after slipping and it bends the wrong way before going back to normal position. You can advance / go back a frame on YT by pausing the video and using . or , respectively, by the way. Hopefully it’s nothing bad and he keeps going. Without the injury I’m sure he’d have had no trouble beating Kotoshōgiku.
  14. Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    You’re crazy. Hakuhō will go back to the slap if he loses tomorrow and start winning. He’s not gonna lose tomorrow, anyway. Kisenosato needs to retire. It’s sad but that’s injury for you. Kakuryū looking great, happy for him. Always thought it was weird how he pulled out last moment after training well the past months, I never doubted he’d do well. Mitakeumi ōzeki soon. Will Gōeidō keep pace? Ichinojō has fighting spirit this basho. Chiyotairyū’s loss was weird. I hate Kotoyūki’s tachiai. I thought Ryūden was good but he’s been disappointing.
