    New Juryo, new shikona (split from Promotion discussion)

    To my ear there's no difference between oo and ou in practice, at least in greater Tokyo.

    I will be absent this basho, but I'm aware that I've likely missed the kosho deadline. My apologies.

    Yusho or Rank?

    Who demostrates that banzuke (and match) making wasn't what it later became back then. http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Banzuke.aspx?b=192710&heya=-1&shusshin=-1&snr=on is his highest rank--for reasons lost to history he got passed over for promotion by an MK rikishi. Huh? (This was also the era of East and West rikishi only fighting each other--the "joi" reaches down to #32 on the banzuke!)

    Corona and sumo

    Wat? pair/group up the smaller heya into bubbles. Done. This seems like a great way to cross-link all the heya that participate, which would seem to defeat the purpose. Presumably the kkan is better-ventilated, which should help.

    Nothing like a meeting of a ton of people to talk about having meetings of fewer people. Sigh.

    Kitamura-san is a big, big lad for his age. Do judo weight classes go up to 160kg?

    "React"--and lack thereof

    Can the reaction limit be raised, or can people posting 'because I'm out of reacts' be moderated, please? A post is more in-your-face than a reaction, so people choosing to post nothing but a reaction as a post is just making the forum worse.

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Re: kakuryu and renoucing his mongolian passport being a limit. In general the two things will happen simultaneously de jure--the renounciation of the old citizenship and the attainment of the new one. It's probably illegal for the Mongolians to let their citizens become stateless. Ditto, if I understand the Japanese naturalisation process correctly, the paperwork to become japanese basically says 'I hereby renounce all other citizenships' in the legalese. As far as foreign governments are concerned, how much legal effect that has varies. Historically, it was literally impossible to voluntarily dispose of Canadian citizenship by any means, so there are plenty of Canada/Japan dual citizens even if Japan doesn't want to believe that it's so. I believe Mongolia also believes in single-citizenship-only, so the very act of becoming japanese de jure removes the Mongolian citizenship. Of course, there's probably some nuance that I'm missing here, but that's my understanding of the process for normal people.
