  1. on the subject of the funny shikona, many hears ago some of my favorites were Oshiri, Okenoabura, And Doaho.

    We can't forget Kintamayama's Lesser Twin, Gintamayama. Or The Morbidly Obese Debutoko. And If Drug Jokes are allowed on the forum we can't forget small money. :-D

    Not even the first Maegashira - Chiyonofuji made Makuuchi for one basho, then got injured and dropped to Makushita 5 years before he ever won a Yusho.  Maybe first former Komusubi?

    Also, by your own statement, it wouldn't be that hard.  It's not very far from Juryo to Makushita.  Plenty of rikishi have failed in their first sekitori stint.  Yusho winners include: Kakuryu, Kyokutenho, Baruto, Kotonishiki, Kotofuji, Kirishima...

    How about Sandanme?

    Hard to see a promotion with 12-3 J and 13-2 Y when Takayasu's other ozeki tournaments were 1-2-12, 8-5-2, and 9-6. 

    Compare that to Kise's last 6 before promotion: 14-1 Y, 12-3 J, 10-5, 12-3 J, 13-2 J, 13-2 J.

    He had consistently strong ozeki showings to support his case with one yusho, and I believe the YDC mentioned this. Conversely, Takayasu has just achieved his first double digit ozeki tournament..

    What about akebono's 0-0-15 and 9-6? then again he did get 2 yusho in a row, on the other hand they may want another decent japanese yokozuna.

  4. oh, this sounds fun.

    Yokozuna: Mitakeumi (5Y Promoted 2019) Goeido (2Y Promoted 2018) Kisenosato (4Y Promoted 2017)

    Ozeki: Onosho, Takayasu, Tochinoshin, Takakeisho

    Sanyaku: Mitoryu, Shodai, Ichinojo, Hokutofuji, Endo

    Joi Regular: Hattorizakura, Sawanofuji, Enho, Abi, Ryuden, Ura, Kagayaki, Ishiura

    Lower Maegashira: Gagamaru, Kinjo, Shohozan, Terunofuji, Kotoeko, Hokaho, Shonannoumi.

    There would be more, i'm not naming them. 2030 Is the one to see however.
