    How far will Terunofuji go?

    Another six out! This poll is a testimony to how unlikely is Terunofuji's comeback.

    A lot to say about the basho, but the man of the moment is Terunofuji. We saw him rise to Ozeki, we witnessed his fall due to injuries that usually end careers and yet we kept hearing that he wanted to come back. He plummeted down the banzuke until the day he decided it was enough. I didn't think he would make to Makuuchi (there is a post about that) and he proved me wrong. Noone has ever made this comeback and I feel that Ozeki might be a mere step in Terunofuji's career. I am already looking forward to May.

    It's terrible to watch Takayasu crumbling like this. A stark reminder of the sheer mental strength needed to win a tournament.

    The Uchigake that Hoshoryu pulled today was just beautiful. He is more dangerous when it seems that he is cornered without scape.

    Watching Hoshoryu I can't shake the feeling of witnessing the first steps of a future Yokozuna. He's got that something and I hope he keeps on progressing.

    Hoshoryu knows how to use his legs, he avoided defeat twice today with great footwork.

    I really like how Hoshoryu and Midorifuji are adding kimarite variety to Makuuchi. You never know what to expect with them. I am partial to leg tricks in oozumo (uchigake, sotogake, kekaeshi...) and it seems to me that Hoshoryu is adept at them.

    I like how Hoshoryu is recovering from his five straight loses. He might as well finish with a 10-5.

    You can find Natto's digest in his discord server (I don't know if I should paste it here). He is looking at alternatives to host the videos and he has even open a really convenient Telegram.

    So much talk about Takakeisho's promotion and we forget the main point: he has to win (almost) all of his matches.

    Awaiting the new elimination update after the new banzuke is published...

    I am no Takakeisho fan, his sumo seems to me one-dimensional, lackluster and without a pan B. After he suffered such a defeat against an overwhelming Terunofuji I thought he was done, but he was not. His mental strength is on par to his physique. Great finish to a great basho.

    Great kekaeshi from Tobizaru today. I wonder why it is not seen more often. It seems like a really effective kimarite against slow and big oponents and yet only a handful are attempted each tournament.

    So much energy in the Takayasu - Terunofuji match. I hope to see both regaining the Ozeki rank in 2021.

    Kotoshogiku retires

    Not among my favourites, but I reckon I always wanted him to win after he lost his ozeki rank. He kept on fighting and he even managed to get three kinboshi. Respect.
