  1. Whenever i hear Taka-nonsense, wether from -toriki or -nohana in the past, i see this:

    Spoiler

     

    And regarding Hoshoryu...of all the active Y/(ex)Os, only Terunofuji and Asanoyama managed 2+ consecutive KK in their sanyaku debut, so he's got that going for him.

    Uncle Asa posted the comment "good sumo" about Hoshoryu's win today

    You sure he said this about day 6, not day 5? I wanted to hurl that at their faces ;)

    Trivia: Did you know in the german sync his name is Nuttingham, which translates to Whoreingham?

     


  3. "Like many other aspects of Japanese culture, the origins of sumo wrestling are steeped in myths and legend. The sport arose during the Heian era and quickly gained popularity. It was also during this period that sumo wrestlers started to develop their large hair for the purpose of covering their stomachs."

    The only one covering his stomach with hair is Takayasu. But not like the "author" thinks.

    Maybe Hakuho started the trend choosing Ishiura and Enho. Makes the Yokozuna appear that much more imposing 

    Aaah, the good old trimming the bush to make the tree look taller.

    I don't mean to body shame any rikishi, but I am fascinated by his body. It's like he doesn't have typical moobs, but actually has 2 distinct sets of breasts, one above the other. It's trippy. 

    Now take that picture an paint some extra nipples on.

     

    On a serious note:

    It's pathetic we almost celebrate a day on which all the Y/Os win. At least some lower rankers try to entertain us.

  5. 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). This basho we have Wakamotoharu (brother of Wakatakakage) makuuchi. In Juryo we have Kitanowaka, Shimazuumi and newly promoted Tochimaru.

    Promotion/demotion/kadoban/intai:

    An Ozeki winning less then 8 bouts is set on the kadoban status. If he doesn't score 8 wins the following basho, he is demoted to Sekiwake. Shodai and Takakeisho both miracuosly survived their kadoban last basho. Wakatakakage surprised most of us last basho, with his 13-2 Yusho. This sets him on an Ozeki-run. He started at M1 with a 9-6, followed by said yusho at Sekiwake. With 10 more wins he will reach the (unwritten) goal of 32 wins over 3 basho. 11+ wins would be even better an another Yusho will guarantee promotion to Ozeki,

    Guess the colour of the giant macaron:

    One of the prizes for the yusho winner is a giant fake macaron (as placeholder for a load of real, normal sized macarons from one of the best Pâtisseries in Paris). The colour varies and it has become a popular game to guess it.


  6. @Rocks and @Zannah both with 7 points. Both got the green macaron, same at promotion/demotion, but zannah did a better prediction at the wall for those higher on the banzuke.

     

    Congratulations @Zannah!

    I updated some in the other games, but didn't get around to updating this game yet. With work going the way it is I might not be able to update until day 14. I'll try to see what I can do

    I said i like it, so please DON'T update :)


  8. I like you didn't post anything for the last days. The double-suspense of not knowing whom the others picked...and whom i picked myself yesterday (sic), is killing me.


  9. I didn't get ANY mails from ISP and Toto, not even the entry confirmation. No, if those mails are filtered, it's before they can reach my GMX-mail-account.
