    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Aki 2015

    Indeed. I felt so sure about it. Instead they made it Aoiyama - Osunaarashi (which I think is somehow OK in itself) and Yashikaze - Kyokushuho! I don't get the latter one...

    Kensho for Aki15

    Day 14: 1. Kakuryu 439 2. Terunofuji 190 3. Kisenosato 171 4. Endo 135 5. Kotoshogiku 112 6. Okinoumi 78 7. Yoshikaze 67 8. Myogiryu 65 9. Goeido 62 10 Tochiozan 60 The 58 kensho Kakuryu got today are the second most placed in a single bout in modern times, only surpassed by the 61 kensho Hakuho recieved for beating Kakury on senshuraku in hatsubasho this year. The maximum kensho limit usually was 50 + 1 per bout, but it seams the kyokai generally has raised this limit to 60 + 1 in January. I won't be surprized if we see 61 kensho in the last bout tomorrow.

    Canadian Sumo Hope

    Thank you for the spoiler! :-( The spoilers rule was removed from the forum a decade ago. If you didn't want to know the result why would you read this thread? Well, I wasn't here a decade ago. I just care about the 30 minutes between your spoiler and e.g. Tenshinhan's video (thanks btw). Some people here don't have live video access to sumo bouts. And we live in different time zones anyway. In a thread titled 'Canadian Sumo hopeful' I don't expect bout results by the minute. The only information you gave was that rikishi A lost x:y against rikishi B. No other additional value. Everyone can easily find this out and see the result on the net. There's a thread in the forum with 'spoiler alert' in its title. It's a regular thread for years. And 'spoiler alert' is there for good reason.

    Is this one of you guys? Guys?

    Quite easy: turn buddhist, die quickly, and get reborn as a fly - unlimited access everywhere, baby! Sure. And there are chances to be reborn as an earthworm and end up in the holy dohyo itself. You can't get any closer.

    I can only judge by what I have seen from Kintas video. I imediately had the impression that Asojima describes and that this deserves a monoii. I'd guess it's all well done.
