  1. @Katooshu Fully agree, it would be great to see Ochiai in Ozumo, he'll sure to be a bright prospect if he does
  2. Update: January 2021 Makuuchi: Juryo: Makushita: Sandanme: Sd2w - Kume Kiyoshi (粂 貞), Kotokume, Sadogatake (#23) (5-2) Sd71e - Ito Hikari (伊藤 暉), Kotoito, Sadogatake (#7) (4-3) Sd89w - Honda Rikiya (本多 力也), Kochikara, Tagonoura (#31) (3-4) Jonidan: Jonokuchi: Jk25e - Takei Sakutaro (武井 朔太郎), Atamifuji, Isegahama (#18) (6-1) (Y) Comments A impressive first basho for newly-on-the-list Takei as he starts off his Ozumo career with a Jonokuchi Yusho via a playoff. He had to do it the hard way as he was 0-1 at one point, but was able to win eight bouts in a row after that to win the division. Kotokume will be in Makushita next basho with a comfortable 5-2 near the top of Sandanme. In other news, #5 Murayama Go and #26 Nagata Ryoma have both passed the shindeshi examinations and will be joining their classmates on the banzuke in March.
  3. Update: January 2021 Makuuchi: Juryo: Makushita: Ms26e - Yoshii Ko (吉井 虹), Yoshii, Tokitsukaze (#3) (4-3) Ms59e - Otsuji Riki (大辻 理紀), Otsuji, Takadagawa (#6) (5-2) Sandanme: Jonidan: Jonokuchi: Comments There were no new rikishi from this class to add to the list this basho, but the two who are in Ozumo have both achieved winning scores and continue to move up the rankings. For Yoshii, it's his fourth consecutive 4-3.

    New recruits Hatsu 2021

    Murayama may have the stature of Takakeisho, but his sumo has always been a lot more straightforward, and lacks Takakeisho's impeccable timing.

  12. Let's take a look at the Class of 2012, the year group who were first eligible for Ozumo in 2012. We have already seen multiple members making it to sekitori and Makuuchi, and what's more, one of them has even been able to make it as far as Ozeki (and in the process getting his own fan club on this forum). We'll list the Top 32 rikishi in this year group, ranked by their results in every national level tournament prior to graduating middle school. We will also be focussing on some of them, talking about what kind of wrestler they are, what notable results they've achieved, and more importantly, what their story is. Hopefully when more of them start appearing in Makuuchi in years to come, you could look back to the Amasumo section and see where they came from, and what they've been through.

    Thought I'd repost this here, seeing that his dream has now come true.

    69th All Japan sumo championships 2020

    The final match-up was interesting, as both Hanada and Yamaguchi are certainly big names in college sumo. Surprised to see that Nakamura lost to Kawabuchi in the quarter-finals, though that result nearly gave us a first-year vs first year final, crazy. Renseikan graduate Hatsuyama always seems to be there or thereabouts in major tournaments, maybe one day he can go all the way? Finger crossed!
