  3. FAWL Update and Natsu

    Thanks, Neko, my first yusho in the new FAWL era. Very sad to see only 6 players, though, we definitely need more competition!
  4. Sandanme Game Natsu 2018

    Thanks - and congratulations on a well-deserved jun-yusho, Itachi! Not knowing the entries of the others actually increases the suspense. I am pretty surprised I was the only one to pick Karatsuumi (he is usually a great choice when ranked at around Sd50 or lower): he must have helped me win about 10 Sandanme Game yushos by now.. Though very unlikely, I am going to root for him making a surprise trip to Juryo!
  5. Metasumo 2018

    Thanks for the update! I am still confident that my "group 5"-pick will end up as "best choice" - no pressure though! :)
  6. Makushita Game Natsu 2018

    Thanks, Randomitsuki, and congratulations to Pepoetsu for winning all of the sansho! Actually, I only looked at the results on senshuraku in order to see if my team eked out a kk (which it - barely - did). It must have been a really difficult basho, if a team with only 8 kk-rikishi is good enough to win the yusho, even without a tie-breaker...

  9. Sandanme Game Haru 2018

    Thanks, Itachi, I did not expect to win this time. In fact, the winning score of 10.41 points is by far the lowest of all my 18th yusho. Must have been a really difficult basho for all Sandanme gamers!
  10. Pick The Yusho Winners Haru 2018

    Congratulations, Itachi, a well-deserved first yusho! I am pretty happy with the jun-yusho given the fact that neither one of my Makushita picks even managed a kk...
  11. エレベーター力士 Elevator Rikishi

    Similar record: Dewanohana had four consecutive promotions and four demotions between Hatsu 1986 and Haru 1987. And before anyone asks: The record for consecutive Makushita-Juryo pro-/demotions is held by Shinobuyama
  12. エレベーター力士 Elevator Rikishi

    Obviously, "consecutive" is the important restriction in your query. In order for someone travelling back and forth between Makuuchi and Juryo for more than a year, you would not only need a very borderline-quality (and injury-free) rikishi, but also lots of banzuke luck. When it comes to Juryo<->Makuuchi elevator rikishi in general, the numbers of promotions/demotions are much higher.
  13. エレベーター力士 Elevator Rikishi

    Apparently the record is held by Wakashoyo with four consecutive promotions and three demotions between Aki 1991 and Aki 1992.
  14. Perfect Team - Haru 2018

    In my experience, that's one of the many great side-effects of playing sumo games, especially games like Makushita Game, Sandanme Game, Pick the Yusho Winners or now Perfect Team and Class Dismissed - you will occasionally learn things like that.. Thanks Wakatake for providing the latter two!
  15. Takayoshitoshi scandal

    Not different at all (at least if the rookie does not strike back which, I believe, many would do nowadays). I understood your original comment differently and thought that you are comparing on- and off-court violence (= fights between athletes) in western sports with the case of this beating and I disagreed on that. I do agree that we have lost proportions, mainly due to all the recent scandals - but also due to the fact that there was (and, unfortunately still seems to be) a structural issue with and a culture of "hierachy-based" violence in sumo.
