    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Kaio will always be a legend for winning five yusho, among other records. Chiyotaikai also managed three. To me those guys were the definition of Ozeki. It took me ages to realize it was even possible to lose the rank because they were such permanent fixtures.

    You’ve done it again. :)

    He did. Still must be hard to swallow.

    It must suck when your final record is enough to win you the yusho most other times. 13-2 would have been enough to take the cup in half the tournaments last year. Mitakeumi won with 12-3 just in September; Asanoyama did the same in May.

    I wish my Japanese was better. Tokushoryu has the crowd in stitches.

    Sensational sumo from Tokushoryu!!! Nobody can dare say he does not deserve it now.

    Nice win by Onosho. Goeido ends on 5-10. He, Takayasu and Tochinoshin managed just 16 wins between them ...

    10-5 for Asanoyama keeps the Ozeki-run nicely on track. Not enough for the promotion this time, but it could count as the middle basho with his 11-4 at Komusubi last time around.

    Yep. And one win was a freebie after Kakuryu pulled out. Four defeats in a row to end the basho. Very poor.

    Shodai's done his bit! Now we wait and see ...

    Ikioi kachikoshi! First winning record in Makuuchi since last Hatsu.

    My cursory investigation suggests it is. I narrowed the search to M16-22 with 11-15 wins and grouped by basho. There were few enough that I could check manually to see which had big wins by the two bottom-rankers (since the results also include M16s etc who weren't the lowest at the time). http://sumodb.sumogames.de/Query.aspx?show_form=0&group_by=basho&having=2&form1_rank=M16-M22&form1_wins=11-15&form1_m=on&group_expand=on

    Okay, well, if that was a record then it must be as Tokushoryu and Kiribayama already have one win more. :)

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Kiribayama's Makuuchi debut is the best since Ichinojo's 13-2 in Sept 2014. First man to reach 11+ wins in his debut since then. 24 wins (and possibly 25) between the two bottom-ranked rikishi. Is that some sort of record?

    It's not just that he henkas, but that he snarls at opponents who dare to henka him. He also likes to slap but gives the dirtiest looks to people who slap him back. He's a total hypocrite.
