    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    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.

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

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

    How far will Terunofuji go?

    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.

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Great finish to a really nice tournament. With the old guard retiring, we have now yet another yusho winner. I wonder if November would set a record of most Makuuchi yusho winners in the banzuke: Hakuho, Kakuryu, Takakeisho, Asanoyama, Shodai, Mitakeumi, Terunofuji, Tochinoshin, Tamawashi and Tokushoryu if I am not mistaken. Edit: I was indeed mistaken, I forgot Kotoshogiku

    Tomorrow's Shodai vs Asanoyama is going to be really nice... while I get Tobizaru's bandwagon on the route.

    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    Before the basho was sad because without Abi there will be "something" missing. I don't know what that "something" is, but Tobizaru has it. Maybe is his style, his continous jumping around... I don't know, but I like it. Who's driving Tobizaru's bandwagon? I want to jump in!

    Aki talkie

    I wonder if Asashoryu is an example of what is said inside a heya. Alternatively he could be just another (idiot) bully longing for his glory days.

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    NSK has made a good decision. As other have pointed, enduring a 3 Basho suspension with half the pay and no bonus is a test of Abi's commitment to Sumo. If he decides to continue and manages to behave, I would root for him more than ever.

    Are Abi's days numbered?

    Sad news, for sure. Abi was different and he hadn't reached his full potential. I hope this situation can be reversed somehow.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Tochinoshin's loss was hard to see. He was able to carry Terutsuyoshi like in the old days but he couldn't finish. He has lost his power and I don't see hope in his eyes. I think he will be back in Georgia by Christmas...
