    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    I want Takakeisho to win the basho. I hated him when he first got promoted to Makuuchi, mainly because I viewed him as the main rival of my then-favourite Ura, and also because of that one dame-oshi that almost caused a bad leg injury to Ura. I’m ashamed to admit that I made my feelings about that incident quite clear in this forum at the time. However, I can’t deny he’s been growing on me lately, he always show a lot of heart and his sumo is the real deal. I hope he wins this basho and be around as an Ozeki or a Yokozuna for a long time. Also here’s hoping Ura will have a chance to face him again in the top division.

    Trump coming to the basho

    I'm sure it was "Commemmemoration" instead...

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    During a monoii, sometimes I see the shimpan bringing a tablet onto the dohyo to look at video replays. Was there any yesterday?

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    Well that change.org petition is chugging along like a runaway train. Seems like the bulk of Georgia’s sumo fans are up in arms. Personally I think a public apology by the shimpans is warranted. Not holding my breath though...

    It was from a manga scanslation site.

    This screenshotted panel in the later chapters of Hinomaru Zumou had me sprouting goosebumps all over. Just so reminded me of our real life phenomenon that is Hakuho...

    Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    My pleasure. He's a very honest character, Furiwake-oyakata, eh?

    Funny videos and photos of rikishi at play

    Been looking for this clip for a long time...still one of my all time favourite segments in in the Year End Batsu Games until now :D https://www.facebook.com/AbsolutelyGaki/videos/934099600005692/ For the ones who are confused : Furiwake-oyakata (ex-Takamisakari) did a really funny parody in 2014's annual Year End batsu game.

    Mitakeumi shikona change?

    He'll always be Mita to me ☺️
  12. Oh wow I did not know about the fairly recent Jakarta tour before the article! How come I did not hear any of it at the time? Looked like it was a sucessful tour too judging from the photos and old news articles I googled.

    Ex-Wakashimazu grave injury

    I'm torn between giving the "Like" for Nishonoseki-oyakata's continued improvement, or for the unexpected and delightful sight of his stunning daughter on this nonchalant Jakarta morning. *sigh.......*

    Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I thought it was hilarious fun. I'm not a sumo veteran fan nor am I a total newbie fan too, but I was one of the many who yelled/typed "MAWASHIII!" just because it was the funnest thing to do at that particular moment, smiling so gleefully as I saw the chatroom exploded. Same feeling like when watching football live at the stadium : lots of not-really-clever verbal outburts and whatnot, but the emotion was palpable and you get swept along with it. And of course the quality of the banter will be totally different over there than in this forum, where we have time to edit and consider our responses. I use both and loving it.
