  1. Videos and promo-Hatsu 2018-Days 1-15

    Wowza!! What a basho!! Our favorite little sweetie had a rough time at the first hit.
  2. Day 14 pics Hatsu 2018 Part 2 (Tochinoshin post bout)

    Way to go, Tochi! Awesome basho all around! Thanks for the great pics, but we need a good one of him with the trophy. Here's all I could find:
  3. Video Streaming - Hatsu 18

    Got it. Sorry about that. I had a suspicion that might be an issue. Hopefully I didn't cause any harm. Sorry I didn't see the message earlier. Just a stupid newbie......
  4. Video Streaming - Hatsu 18

    Looks like the livestream isn't quite live, for my iphone sumo app shows the winners about 3 minutes before the livestream.

    Well, at least we have Kintamayama, and that's no bad thing. Hopefully he'll be able to do them all.
  7. Birthdays of active rikishi

    Couple a slight dose of boredom with a fair bit of interest in these kinds of things, and I create such a list as this. All of these rikishi are in Makuuchi and Juryo, but those who are currently in lower divisions were at one point in Makuuchi. There may be a typo or misspelling here and there. Enjoy!

  8. Hakuho misconduct (split from Basho Talk Kyushu 2017)

    So it looks like Harumafuji is retiring. That's too bad, but I suppose it was inevitable. I'm wondering about the rest, now. What is Hakuhuo going to suffer because of his multiple stories of the incident? (to say nothing of his own recent minor scandals). However, I have a theory about what is going on with all of this. I think it's bigger than we realize. I think the sumo world (starting with the Mongolians) are being taken over by
  9. Hakuho misconduct (split from Basho Talk Kyushu 2017)

    I suppose it shouldn't be surprising that Hakuho gets angry when his opponants give him a dame-oshi, and yet still hands out his own dame-oshi to all and sundry.
  10. Kotoshogiku Blog

    Sorry for digging up a 9-year-old thread! Is Kotoshogiku still doing a blog or have some kind of online presence? The original blog is no longer active (and I don't read/speak japanese).
  11. Chiyo brothers

    Thanks for the info. Somehow I knew instinctively that calling a rishiki a sumo was wrong - it's like calling a soldier a battle. 'Fight' also seems wrong, but 'wrestle' also doesn't seem to fit even though we westerners call it sumo wrestling. So fill in the blank: "I would really like to see Chiyootori and Chiyomaru ____________ each other." (Keep it clean! )
  12. Chiyo brothers

    Forgive my ignorance, but is it prohibited for them to fight each other? is it because of their relationship, or because one is the assistant to the other, or have they just not yet had the luck to meet in the ring yet? And along those lines, are there prohibitions for certain rishiki against wrestling other rishiki? And one final question - in English should I call it a 'fight' or a 'wrestle' or a 'bout' or what?? Sorry for all the newbie questions.
  13. Featured Rikishi - Kaisei

    So when did Kaisei get his new colorful mawashi?
  14. Sumo GIFs

    I've been making and collecting GIF images of interesting sumo events. I wish I could post them here but my smallest GIF is nearly double the allowed max. Too bad. a GIF thread would be a lot of fun.

    Well, here's one video. It's not terribly helpful, but enjoyable to watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vicTTYDjA0Q
