    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    Noooo, don't jinx him like that!! Interesting opning day, surely even more interesting to see how it develops from here (all circumstances considering)....
  2. I loved it today... Ofc Takakeisho & Terunofuji was THE highlight, and Teruno managed to surprise me a bit there, but yay for Takakeisho to collecting his calm and showing why he is an ozeki. I have to give my -mentions to: Ichinojo, he found that extra-gear at 7-7 and managed to win. I almost expected him to freeze at the halfway, but he made it. Other one to Hokutofuji, he was in 'unstoppable train' -mode today. And one more to Shimanoumi, I had no info about this newbie, but really liked his style in this basho.

    Kotoshogiku retires

    Had to digest the news for couple days. He was one of the first guys I started to remember & recognize, when I started following sumo. I will greatly miss his "humpty-dumpty- pushing-you-out-of-the-ring" -style of sumo. Wishing all the best success to his new career as oyakata.
  4. Quite a start. Somehow it feels nicer to see more audience there, but hopefully precautions are enough to keep everyone safe. Agreeing on Mita's wake up call, redo was much more impressive to see. Disappointed that Tobizaru couldn't win his starter (out from chaingang game in 1st day...) But looking forward to upcoming days.
  5. My guess will be 11/2023. Just because my goal is to travel to Japan then...

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    ...anyone else not seen this yet?

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    So very sad and what a waste of talent. Abi made that stupid, stupid mistake and it's up to him to carry the consequences, but I still feel sad to lose such a character...

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    Congratz to Terunofuji! (despite whooping my fav Mita...) Other ex-Ozekis doing fine today, too; Tochinochin and Takayasu at 10-5. Hopefully they are able to raise in ranks again. Also, pretty impressed by Kotoeko. Doing well again after his Juryo visit.

    This IS the July 2020 Basho thread!! Spoilers!!

    While main focus is our top 3 guys (and Mita, yay!), I want give my "fav points" to Kotoyuki and Myogiryu. Myogiryu started seemingly slow but then turned on the train gear and Giku had no answer. Kotoyuki was having none of it Ishiura's shenigans and still after winning was checking Ishiura was okay when coming back to dohyo. Those were some good quality sumo imo. (...and I ran out of daily likes way too soon again... We'd really need more of them, at least during ongoing basho... Please...? )

    Hello from Singapore

    Not 100% sure, but I think it's only 10 likes per day...? I often find my thought already written by someone else, so I usually run out of daily likes instead of posting repetative comment... Also, welcome to this great forum Seiyashi, hope you enjoy your visits here.

    Games Bugs

    Um, anyone else having problem with ISP...? I get Runtime error whole time when trying to get to Entry-page... It has been like this since afternoon. Occasionally I get to Rules page after refreshing, but Entry won't work at all...

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Two bouts made me applause today ; Tochinochin's comeback and Enho's huge leap. Onosho managed to catch that but end of the bout was proper entertainment. Abi was usual hasty one, I hope he didn't hurt his knee (seeing his facial expression when he hit tha clay)...

    Games Talk Haru 2020

    ....just wondering here, if banzuke for ISP at sumogames.de will be updated any time soon...?

    Abi and Wakamotoharu - SNS banned

    ...well. I haven't followed sumo THAT many years, nor have such general knowledge of Japanese culture, that I'd dare to make strong judgements. Just making a silent wish of foreign fan that they'll reverse this decision preferable sooner than later...

    Abi and Wakamotoharu - SNS banned

    ...I miss Hokuto's Insta posts. He & buddies always made such a good mood posts, and eventho I can't read Japanese, pic/video really can tell more than a thousand words. And it was nice way to be reminded about sumo between bashos. Gotta agree with some of the previous posts; in the longer run this might work against sumo's popularity.

    Goeido to Retire

    I have to share this entiment. Aki basho 2016 was the first event I watched fully, because after couple days I got hooked to see if this guy can really win them all... And have been hooked ever since. All the success to Goeido in his future plans.

    Banzuke for Kyushu 2019

    Interesting line up. Already eagerly looking forward to this basho. And always nice to be witnessing unusual phenomen (4 Ks), totally agreeing with ryafuji on this.

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Wooot? And I thought he was doing decent... Just saw some comment in twitter that Kaku's kyujo is confirmed too.... (edit: You beat me to it @WAKATAKE )

    2019 Aki Basho Discussion (spoiler alert!)

    Oh geez, what a day. Some very great bouts there; happy for Enho & Hokuto. But still, all my online game picks... All wrong, so hard to be very happy. What was the final judgement in Kotoshogiku match? Videos showed his foot out, but...?
