    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    I thought this was a nice random dohyo shot. Or is there something I'm supposed to be seeing here? Proud that Terrornofuji is steadily climbing back up to makuuchi: Also, the following pic is from yesterday but I can't believe I forgot to post it. The most dapper Kisenosato Araiso oyakata ever:

    You know what, I totally missed that!

    Black eye. I liked this shot of the arena just before the final bout: Still quite a few seats empty, here and there. Hakuho vs Endo: Blood on Hakuho's chest:

    They showed some pictures of Kisenosato's danpatsu-shiki. Of course it was a while back but figured I'd make some screenshots.

    They were talking about the danpatsu-shiki! I forget when but I think they said it would take part sometime late next year? I felt he got a little quiet when they mentioned it, like he didn't want to let people hear the emotion in his voice.

    Commentator Yoshikaze. Or I suppose we should call him Nakamura Oyakata now. I don't know if I can get used to that.

    Pictured: Hakuho getting ready to enter the ring. Trust me. He's right there.

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    Anyone else noticed Domo-kun yesterday? I've always loved Domo-kun. They're actually the first Japanese mascot (not tied to a video game or TV series) I ever remember seeing, way back in the early 2000s. Also from today, fishing: And a nice hot bath: By the way, while this was being shown the super-classic いい湯だな by The Drifters was playing in the background:

    Terunofuji's health problems

    At this level, he doesn't have to do sumo, all he has to do is lean... I liked that second bout though.

    New Takanofuji Scandal

    I had actually forgotten about this case entirely, but I happened to see Takanofuji's face on the news for the retirement announcement. I'm surprised it went on for so long. You know, in principle, if someone has a legal case and they want to pursue it through the court system: fine. That's what the courts are for, right? But... this was just doomed to fail even if he won in court. You can't expect a rikishi to have a comfortable career when the entire sumo world and even its fanbase are against you. They'd have found ways to punish him for the slightest, tiniest infractions for the rest of his time in sumo. All this was just a waste of time and money. He should've just gone out gracefully as a gift to his brother.

    Tomokaze's tears. A beautiful moment. 嘉風先輩、お疲れさまでした。

    Sumo royalty in the kokugikan today. Also since Kakuryu got defeated by a rank-and-filer again, the zabuton were sent flying...

    Just a pic of the zabuton flying after Asanoyama got his first kinboshi:

    Yoshikaze situation

    I was a little shocked to see him retiring. I mean, sure I haven't seen him fight for a while but I assumed he was injured or somewhere in lower juryo temporarily. It's always weird when a wrestler who's been a makunouchi mainstay for years decides to quit. Fortunately, the sumo circle of life continues as always. (Shin juryo Kaishou/魁勝.) :)
