    I always liked how he conducted himself on the dohyo. Calm and respectful.

    New recruits for Haru 2020

    Having just completed his final year of university sumo, he'd be 22 or 23 I'd think

    New recruits for Haru 2020

    I've read on a Japanese amasumo blog that Yukihiro Hasimoto, last year's captain of Waseda University, will be turning pro with Onoe beya (apparently his family has Kumamoto ties like the oyakata). He has a sandamne qualification as a result of making the best 8 of the student championships. He was also runner-up in a national tournament earlier that year, and in his 2nd-year was the 135kg national weight class champion. On the right. He is about 178cm and 125kg, and is an oshi-specialist. He reminds me a bit of Chiyonoumi. He is also the guy beating Naya in the second video above

    Kindai sumo club coach Ito in memoriam

    Rather shocking! I noticed him in the background at most of the college events, and he was always smiling, even when his guys lost. He had a good rivalry with Nittaidai's Dr. Saito, with them facing off in back-to-back All Japan yusho matches and each winning once. In the mid-80s he was also thorn in the side of the biggest amateur star of the time, Kushima/Kushimaumi. Some of his matches are on YouTube but I can't search at the moment...a small but very skillful competitor.

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I mean Asanoyama was at M2 for his 10-5, would that really not be considered legit when his rank still put him in a position to face virtually everyone? And dang about Hak's pullout, I wanted another kinboshi for Hokutofuji

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    My man Hokutofuji with kinboshi #7 in only 20 makuuchi tournaments ! The bright side of just missing out on sanyaku so often

    Ya, it may 'only' be juryo, but it's great to see him with some swagger and the 'mean' face again

    Azumazeki-oyakata has died

    When I saw the thread title I was expecting to read that Jesse died. Waaay too young.
