    Ceremonial dohyo-iri

    We won’t know until tomorrow. Normally, they would pick the higher ranking pair. Otherwise, Midorifuji would not have time to prepare for his bout.

    Haru 2022 day 15 pics overview

    Illustrator for sponichi, atsushi matsushima has posted his cartoon commentary for all 15 days on his Twitter account. https://mobile.twitter.com/illust_atsushi/
  18. Don’t forget that Takanohana had the added benefit on inheriting a heya instead of waiting to start a new one. If Araiso inherited the Taganoura heya, it would be a quicker promotion?
  19. How different is that from Takanohana’s trajectory?
  20. And ex-kotooshu’s role. promotion to the shimpan department probably depends on the speed on establishing your heya. Methink Goeido might join it by the end of the year?
  21. Kimarite judge, more like it, taking over from the former Oyama(?) oyakata.
