    Shohozan intai

    As Akinomaki said, according to the article Shohozan "won't remain in in sumo as an oyakata but plans to work in the food industry." Regarding his future, he said: "There are also many athletes struggling with food, so hopefully I can be of help to them."

    Measuring Ōzeki Quality

    We shouldn't lose sight of the fact that just becoming an Ozeki, even the worst ever, is a remarkable achievement in the sport of sumo.

    Preparations of the masses- July 2022

    Is there a rikishi who has been more adversely affected by events of the past couple years (covid resulting in no degeiko; loss of his stablemate) than Takayasu? Hope the degeiko sessions reignite him and he can get that long-awaited yusho.

    More Takatoriki nonsense.

    I personally feel that Hoshoryu is right on schedule and as he continues to add bulk and experience in upper Joi/Sanyaku, his first yusho and Ozeki run is just a matter of time.

    Asanoyama caught violating COVID restrictions

    Asashoryu approves. Translation: Next basho! It was a long time, wasn't it!? As a sempai who received a half-year two-basho suspension myself, it's finally time to push, Asanoyama! I'll be waiting.

    Asanoyama caught violating COVID restrictions

    Asanoyama's suspension is over and he'll be eligible to compete again in Nagoya. How high does he re-ascend?

    When ex-Aminishiki was on the NHK broadcast doing guest commentary, he confirmed that Takarafuji had indeed been dealing with injuries and was barely able to train back at the heya leading up to the basho.

    Whelp, that was an anticlimactic ending to an unexciting basho.

    Funny, my impression was he was rushing through the reading because he was running out of time. Edit: The NHK broadcast confirmed that they're running 30 minutes behind schedule due to all of the ketteisen prior to the start of makuuchi.

    On the NHK broadcast the commentator speculated that the mono-ii wasn't looking at who touched out of the ring first, but rather, Tobizaru's toes appeared turned over about the same time Shodai's thigh touched down. From that perspective, it did appear to be a dead heat meriting a torinaoshi.

    Not this current crop.

    If Shodai pulls off another kachikoshi this basho we'll have to change his name to Shoudini.

    A lack of awareness is what got Ryuden in all his trouble in the first place.
