    Retirees after Haru 2019

    I thought that was the name of a Yokozuna at first. I thought it was the name of a Pokémon

    Terunofuji's health problems

    I think you are right, but just to play devil's advocate a little bit, I think this bout was also a classic example of a much smaller rikishi doing everything to avoid mawashi sumo. I think Teru was right to be cautious here.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I do hope Hakuho will lose one of his matches now, and Ichinojo wins them all, because I'll feel a little robbed if those two don't go head to head this basho.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Takanofuji's painful face plant. (I think it's Takanofuji, please correct me if I'm wrong.)

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    That Kotoyuki. Even when he WINS he gets blasted off the dohyo.

  9. Saw this tweet just now. If you're a sumo fan and you're on Twitter you've probably already seen it considering it's got 20k retweets at the moment. An incredible match with a beautiful ending: edit: just realized that maybe this shouldn't be here, since technically this isn't 大相撲. No idea where it should go instead though.

    February special one day tournaments

    Too bad I couldn't be there. I don't suppose it's much use but here's a pic of the matchup sheet.

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I totally forgot about this one screenshot I made on day 14. To be honest, it doesn't have anything to do with sumo, but still...

    Hatsu Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    It's been a long time since I've been here. I've been enjoying sumo as usual though! Next basho I'll be back from the start because I do kind of miss the discussion. Some images from TV: Watching over the special prizes The Emperor's Cup close-up The big moment (1) The big moment (2)

    Takanoiwa hits his tsukebito

    I've been away from this forum for quite some time, but I just couldn't stay away when I saw this. It's so incredibly sad and so incredibly ironic. Goes to show there are plenty of people in sumo who keep themselves in check just well enough not to cause trouble, as long as they're sober. And when they're not, their judgment gets impaired just enough for them to lose control. It's also just really sad that sumo has to go through this thing again.
  14. It depends on whether I'm capable of waking up early enough to catch it live. In my timezone it should be around 9:00 AM (16:00 in Japan, not sure when coverage starts). But I think I won't make that because I'm incredibly lazy, so I'll just turn on my stream and watch it whenever I do wake up.

    Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Absolutely. I really hope he doesn't turn out to be one of those rikishi who are promising but consistently have injury problems. He rose through the ranks very rapidly, he's clever, strong and has good ring sense, so if he can just stay healthy...
