    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Aoiyama is in the yusho race again, this time with the top guys present and (somewhat) in good form. Would be quite the upset to see him shove out Ichinojo today and have that second place spot all to himself going into the final days.

    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    With the makuuchi yusho race being anyone's game, I'm finding that threeway juryo yusho race a bit more interesting. Three wiry guys leading with 1 loss, and Enho's actually among them. That kid can really adapt, which is something not many rikishi are good at. Good to see Akatsu as the guest on Abema today as well! I've seen him on quite a few sumo programs, but I don't really know what he's about. If anyone could PM me more info on him, I'd much appreciate it.

    Harumafuji danpatsushiki

    Isegahama-oyakata taking the final cut, as well as Harumafuji's wife, kids, and mother giving him flowers, and his final kiss to the dohyo. (Not sure how to embed this into a smaller resolution, so if a mod could edit this post and fix it, that'd be great)

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Enho got his KK! It would be nice to see him finish off with a 9-6 or better after the paltry record in his juryo debut. His form and technique seems improved from his debut as well. He's becoming more defensive and versatile. Now let's hope he doesn't become another Ishiura...

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Anyone think there was some yaocho going on with Mitakeumi vs Tochinoshin today? That looked suspiciously by the book. (I have no idea whether it was or wasn't. I'm just curious about the general consensus.)

    Kise's just hanging on by the skin of his teeth. It's incredible, the way he's managing to dodge a loss.

    Such a nice poster! I wonder who the artist is. I'd like to have a print of that without the text.
