  6. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Indeed! And i was most surprised that they did not. There have been many difficult decisions this Basho as well as many false starts...i felt as if I'd watched the same matches many times over
  7. Nagoya Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Mitakeumi falls!...(well both Takayasu and him did) I can't take much more of this Basho... What a ride!
  8. Day 1 matchups

    Oh crap, I forgot (very absent minded of me ) Take the 'kinboshi' out of my comment and replace it with 'win'... In other words, I hope kakuryū wins
  9. Day 1 matchups

    Let's hope Kakuryū doesn't give away another kinboshi to Shōhōzan

    Hi Tim Welcome to the forum!
  12. Sumo in video games

    My apologies this should read "took place in a communal bath"... autocorrect is such a pain. I can't edit my posts. I'm sorry to add a pointless message to this thread.
  13. Hello everyone from NE England

    Aw, thanks for your awesome comments lads and lassies, its great to hear from some fellow NE sumo fans... autotroph, your so right, this forum is like an oasis... Pandaazuma, I was watching some videos of that era just last night. Aye they were good days.... Thanks all!
  14. Sumo in video games

    I used to be an avid gamer back in the day, my favourite games were beat-em-up's and apart from E.Honda (who figurine Akinomaki has posted) I can remember two other characters who were rikishi. http://tekken.wikia.com/wiki/Ganryu http://virtuafighter.wikia.com/wiki/Taka-Arashi E.Honda was one of my favourite characters in SF, he would shout 'Dosukoi!" during his victory pose and his bouts took part in a communal bath, he also wore red kumodori (隈取) make-up. Capcom(street fighter's developers) were eager to capitalise on sumo's international interest and created the character for foreigners to ignite interest in Japan as a whole (hence the kumodori, blending two very Japanese things together, Kabuki and Sumo) Great thread...
