    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Tochinoshin: A tough basho for him and he manages to get KK almost on his last opportunity. I hope that he recovers for November. Mitakeumi: He was able to pull a delicate dancing move over the strawbales under pressure of a bulldozing Takayasu. A movement to show to the people that thinks that rishiki have no agility. Hakuho: He is not my favourite, but I am happy to witness the Greatest of All Time making history. His basho is perfect so far and we have one more bout to rejoice.

    Kisenosato vs Tochinoshin It was more than the usual bout, it had the drama of a Greek tragedy, where you know the loser is going to suffer just a little bit more than the winner. I still think that Tochinoshin can make it, but he has no margin of error.

    A couple of thoughts about two rishiki no one has mentioned yet: Yoshikaze. Who would have thought that after last basho he would start with 4 straight wins? Certainly not me. Abi. His Makuuchi debut was fantastic and he rose in the banzuke... until the rest realized that all they have to do is endure the tsuppari to the throat and grab his mawasi. He needs to add more tools to his sumo.

    His first visit to the upper ranks was disappointing, now he seems to have found a way to get solid results with his blender-style sumo.

    Ichinojo and Endo is becoming one of the most interesting bouts each basho and today did not disappoint. Glad to see Kisenosato back, but I cannot shake the feeling that we are witnessing his end.
  6. Greetings. After lurking the forum for months, I decided to join the community. I look forward to participate and learn more about ozumo. A little bit about me: I come from Spain and I've been following sumo since the early 00s, mostly through Eurosport. After Eurosport decided to stop offering sumo, I struggled to find good quality information until I found the now classical YouTube channels (@Kintamayama, Grand Sumo Awesome and Jason All-Sumo). My all-time favourite rishiki is Kotooshu (The first part of my forum shikona is chosen because of him). From the active rishiki I am partial to Chiyonokuni, Ikioi, Endo, Kiokutaisei and Tochinoshin (in no particular order). I am married and I have two-year old twins. I hope to visit Japan one day, when the kids grow. That's all for the moment. I look forward tho see September basho together with you.
