  1. That "King Phoenix" isn't possibly the inspiration for this?émon)

    Hatsu Basho 2021 Yusho Winner

    Takakeisho will be the previous yusho winner, who will win next basho.

    Hatsu Basho 2021

    Disclaimer/introduction for new players The Wall: If a sumotori gets his first makekoshi (MK = losing record) in that respective division, it's called "hitting the wall" (KK = winning record, means missing the wall, which is a good thing). For makuuchi this basho it's Kotoshoho (still), Akua and newbie Midorifuji. In juryo we have Oho (ex-Naya) and Tohakuryu (ex-Shiraishi). Promotion/demotion/kadoban/intai: Asanoyama and Shodai had to drop out injured last basho. They are kadoban and will be demoted to Sekiwake in case of an MK. Shodai shares the same fate as Takakeisho and Tochinoshin, kyujo at Ozeki-debut. But will he be insta-demoted like Takakeisho, or will he bounce back like Tochi? Terunofuji is on his 2nd Ozeki run. If he perseveres, he will make history. He will be the one who dropped the furthest from Ozeki (jd48w) and made it back to Ozeki. It's pretty impropable anyone will break that record until the end of life, the universe and everything. Guess the colour of the giant macaron: One of the prices for the yusho winner is a giant fake macaron (as placeholder for a load of real, normal sized macarons from one of the best P√Ętisseries in Paris). The colour varies and it has become a popular game to guess it.

    The lizard people of NSK & NHK reading and following our wishes and advise?

    How far will Terunofuji go?

    We can do this right now, because Sekiwake he will be. @Chijanofuji, @Kaioshoryu, @Taikoubana, @Kotononami and @Konosato, YOU'RE OUT!
  9. Did anyone miss Hakuho and Kakuryu? IMHO this basho at least proved we don't need them for good entertainment. I hope Asanoyama and Shodai will get back in tracks quickly. The next basho will be very exciting. It could end with only one Ozeki left, or we could even have four! Or three Ozeki and three Yokozuna? Could we please fast forward to january?

    Kyushu Basho 2020, which is held in Tokyo.

    Tobizaru, Hoshoryu hit, Kotoshoho, Akua and Ura missed the wall. Asanoyama and Shodai kadoban, Mitakeumi demoted, Kotoshogiku intai and a golden macaron. We have 6 contenders for the title, each with 6 corrrect guesses. And @MumboJumbo takes the yusho with guessing the correct colour of the macaron as a tie-breaker. Congratulations!
  11. YEAH! I'd never thought i'd say that, but THANK YOU Takakeisho! No Kaiju-yusho!

    Hokuseiho - Shot at a record?

    To be fair, he had to be wheeled out Hatsu 2020 and dropped out of Haru 2020, thanks to that Hatsu injury which still bugs him.
  13. Highlight of the day will be, @Kintamayama eating that hard boiled egg with his nose. Caviar doesn't count!
