    Kyushu Basho 2018 Discussion (SPOILERS)

    the kise twerk? There's a few clips of it in this thread

    Kakuryuu out as well.

    Agreed, I'm currently just hoping I'll make it to a basho in time to see him before he retires. Anyway, I'm hoping he'll put up at least a 9/6 as its Kyushu, and i don't think he wants to meet Toyonoshima again after all this time down in Juryo

    Aw :( I was hoping I'd found another believer in the wild Tbh when he first dropped into the rank and file I thought he'd fall further than he did and have a genuine chance at being a yusho contender from the bottom. Less so now for sure though...

    Kakuryuu out as well.

    He's my favourite so I'm definitely hoping he'll show a return to form this time round, but alas, I think the yusho may be out of his grasp. If he was down at a super low rank like Yoshikaze was last basho, then maybe, but after an MK at M8... Personally I fancy one of the Ozeki's this time too, though I don't know if I can pick between them... with Kise for the Jun-yusho and I think Ichinojo is my wild card bet I look forward to being totally and completely wrong though, as always!

    Kyushu Basho Viewing Options

    The easiest way to do this is to use a service like NordVPN, Express or PIA, you have to pay obviously, but personally I think its worth it. I use PIA myself, its cheap and fast. When it comes to connecting, all you do is select Japan from the drop down menu, while installation was the same as installing any other program in my experience. Some of the free services are really dodgy, for example Hola was found to be using its free users as exit nodes for paying customers, meaning it would be theoretically possible for someone to have been falsely implicated by someone using the service for any kind of dodgy business, amongst a lot of other negatives. Another member here may be able to recommend a good free VPN, but if you worry about your data at all I wouldn't really recommend it, as the free services will most likely log and sell it (got to make up for that service being free somehow after all)

    Preparations of the masses-Kyusho 2018

    Ah man, that really sucks, I was hopeful that he'd kk at this rank too as I thought he was looking good this year :( Here's hoping for a swift and solid recovery for him

    PR for Kyushu 2018

    Nice to see Giku enjoying himself even if the wins aren't quite as up there as they once were

    Kyushu 2018

    Overall, I'm thinking pretty positive here, I just don't think that Mitakeumi will get 12 and I don't think 11 will be enough with Kise looking like the strongest Yokozuna this basho, if Kak does enter and Mitakeumi does beat him (and Kise) in that 11, well then maybe that'd be another story. Buuuuut I have my doubts even though I do think he will make Ozeki one day, if he goes 11 and loses to other Ozeki and the Yoks then I don't think it'll be enough this time around, he could start another run though

    Ura Kyushu 2019

    I thought he might only rack up 5 in the last basho, but I was pleased to see he looked pretty good - I think he's definitely got enough in him for another 6 this time round. Fingers crossed anyway! I could see him challenging for the yusho even, well I hope we'll see that at least... :)

    Did they monetise their videos? I do subscribe to the channel, but I have a very strong ad-blocking regime on my browser, so I can never tell. I imagine if the videos were/will be monetised, then that blip on their radar will be much larger
