    Takanohana resigns

    Ha! What I get through Google is as follows which is much less fun although I would like to hear more about this "Horn World" :) "The Japan Sumo Association approved the retirement of the Takanohana parent who had notified the retirement at an extraordinary board meeting held on the 1st. With this, it was officially decided that the major yokozuna of Heisei 22 times went off the horn world."

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Can I just say I was wrong about Kisenosato . . . . . and am absolutely delighted to be so. He doesnt look right but he is winning so far & I think as his confidence returns he should continue to do so. Not that I am now predicting a yusho mind.

    Natsu jungyo 2018

    Kisenosato still in on days 13-15. I hope so but don't see it.

    How is everybody going to spend the day watching Day 1?

    Due to the time difference It's on at breakfast time here. I've tried to watch it then but it just isnt right so I will watch the highlights in the evening

    Kisenosato Kyujo

    But surely the least surprising news we have heard recently. I'm sure he will enter back in Tokyo & I am equally sure he will retire after 5 or 6 days. It's a great shame.

    Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    What worries me is the the rikishi seem to be trying to take out the Shimpan this basho. I've never seen so many being erm, landed on :)

    Takanohana-devil's advocate

    Maybe they don't want him to be the focus of attention, and I suspect he would make himself the focus.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2018

    My recollection is the same as yours.

    Basho Talk Haru 2018 (SPOILERS)

    He looked terrified. Give him a few days to relax & he will be fine.

    Elections January 2018

    That's got to hurt. Although I expect him to claim it doesnt.

    Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I'm a big Tochinoshin fan but Ichinojo has found something this basho. If it's fair to say that about someone who is already M1. I think this will be the beginning of the end of the yusho dream

    Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    That looks to have been taken from the same corner of the building. Just in front & to the right of the seat I had last time I went :)

    Basho Talk Hatsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    I have to say I completely agree with you on all of this.If this basho comes down to Kakuryu - Goeido on the last day that would be epic. I am expecting Kisenosato to go kyujo but get one more basho to prove he can still perform.

    Long time lurker, first time poster

    Greetings from another relative newcomer in the UK. Finding a bar that would be open at 7 in the morning to watch the sumo is a bit of a reach :) @Kintamayama's videos are the way to go.
