  1. Don't understand the problem of one of the Nayas using the shikona "Taiho". Wouldn't Taiho be proud and wanted one of his grandchildren to use his name? Don't know if he was ever questioned this before he passed. As per Hakuho, the same. If his son ever shows interest in joining sumo and reaches Juryu, wouldn't he want his son to use it?

    Terunofuji has now lost 3 yusho playoffs in the top division, addind to 2 more in lower divisions. Although he won 1 in Juryu he must now have nightmares about playoffs. Wondering how that will affect him in future playoffs.

    Once the air is long enough to allow it. It's not related with ranking. Just hair size. Once they reach Juryu, then they will use a different style. Some will reach makuushi without a mage, like it happen with Ichinojo, as his hair was still not long enough.

    How does it work if he retires before geting citizenship? Does he have to leave the sumo association or he can stay with a different status until he becomes japanese? Also, i'm not sure about it, but believe you can leave after you retire and then come back, correct? (Think thats what Musashigawa did)

    Those Musashimaru's sections, are they part of a larger interview with him that is going to be shown at a later stage or was that it?

    Top 10 Sumo Records July 2020

    Aminishiki is the closest i can get to a "bingo" with only 4 ranks missing. Others in the top 10 basho appearences have more missing. Maybe someone with less basho is more accurate and has a full bingo.

    Top 10 Sumo Records July 2020

    Sorry if this looks more as a trivia question than belonging on this tread, but is there a record for the rikishi that has had more ranks in makuushi? i.e. a rikishi that has been M1E, M1W, M2E, M2W, etc

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    Oh, this punishment now becomes a very mean thing to do if he just had a baby. Unless he doesn't care much about the child... That also means he was going out all these times with a heavy pregnant wife at home. That decreases even more my consideration for him.

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    Well, were people in Japan also criticizing him for the henka or was it just on this forum? And btw, there was nothing wrong with what he did and shouldn't be criticized. Not his fault Koto lost 6 times...

    Kadoban help

    What was the bet?

    Kadoban help

    Tochinoshin is probably the worst percentage in recent times. 3 kadoban in 7 at the rank. Miyabiyama a close second with 3 in 8.
