    Rikishi or heya support events

    One does not quite resemble the other two

    Kakuryu to Retire

    Rumours are that in the above training session he tore both ACLs, broke his back, and suffered a massive concussion, resulting in a doctor's certificate of an early bedtime.

    Promotion/Demotion/Yūshō Discussion Natsu 2023

    Since I don't play GTB I have nothing to hide or protect.............giving this a quick look over, I would think Gono with a 14-1 at J1 would rise higher than your placement. That rank/record combo is the type of thing to earn someone a promotion straight to a single digit maegashira rank. Consider that he finished with 3 more wins than Shonannoumi, at a higher rank, yet you have them at M14 and M15. Caveat that I'm not a rankings person

    That's a good reminder about Akebono and Hokuseiho. For all the comparisons due to their frames, they had completely different styles. Hokuseiho is much more similar to a Takanonami, or even Baruto or Kotooshu.

    New Juryo for July

    There were posters predicting this ahead of time, as well as those not outright predicting it but considering it very feasible, just looking at the record + rank combo; it's an 0-15 thing, not a Miyagino thing.

    New recruits Haru 2023

    Little Ishizaki has been competing in corporate sumo following graduation, so I'm guessing he wont turn pro. Although he's still only 22 or 23, his SdTD qualification will be good for another year, and occasionally some collegiate rikishi do go pro after spending some time in corporate sumo (ex: Fujiseiun, Daiamami), so it's still a possibility.

    Rumored Shikona: Ochai will be...

    Not going to lie, I don't like the shikona Hakuoho - it sounds like someone botching Hakuho.

    Well that was the most enjoyable basho for me in a while - the high rankers in makuuchi and juryo really delivered, we had up and comers securing their sekitori debuts in style, and we had a debuting amateur great show his power after a shaky start.

    Well Kotonowaka clearly touched down first, so I don't see how it could be anything other than Ura was in an unrecoverable position before Koto hit the dohyo.

    People figuring out Hokuseiho with those trips a bit? It's one thing to have Kiribayama beat you like that, but Oho.....

    After being told on here a few basho ago that someone leaping sideways immediately at the tachiai and landing on the other side of the dohyo wasn't a henka, I have refused to enter those debates again

    I think that's what he tried - it looked to me like he pulled a hit and shift, trying to get a hand on the belt while at it - except Teru was prepared for it and was able to clamp him before he could get going.
