  1. Ms1 to Ms5 is the promotion zone. Ms6 to Ms15 is the extended promotion zone; it normally takes a zensho to be promoted from there, unless there's a big excess of demoteable Juryo rikishi.
  2. I have no interest whatever in GTB, but I watch Ozumo for the soap opera of rikishi getting promoted and demoted more than I watch it for the technical details in the dohyo.
  3. Yay! Oh, wait, it's still December....
  4. Yuk-san wa kibishii desu. Yuk-san wa midori desu!

    Retired after Kyusho 2022

    Is a judo therapist someone who conducts their psychoanalysis sessions on the tatami mat during randori?

    The Graph

    There's still the outstanding question of Ichinojo, but that's not likely to be resolved before the banzuke is set.

    Yutakayama Intai

    They broke into Makuuchi at the same basho, and that's what caught my attention for both of them. I had hoped that he would develop enough to be a good rival for Asanoyama, but that didn't happen. Alas.

    Hiro Morita’s “Sumo Prime Time”

    I didn't. Bad move, Hiro! Don't do it again.

    Hiro Morita’s “Sumo Prime Time”

    Yet another video: 「True Contenders」 Kyushu Tourney Outlook Hiro has confidence in Mitakeumi to come up with 10+ wins and return to Ozeki. He might be the only one who does.

    Banzuke for 2022 Kyushu

    Seven lower sanyaku!

    Is Sumo On the Ropes?

    Sumo can't be on the ropes, because the dohyo isn't surrounded by ropes like a boxing ring. Is sumo on the tawara? Not really.
  12. Another option: give ichidai toshiyori to anyone with sanyo, and have them give up the kabu they're holding, with either a 3-year or 5-year sanyo term. That takes sanyo all the way out of play in the supply and demand for kabu.

    Aki 2022 discussion (results)

    Ura was totally going for a tasukizori, wasn't he, but his arm just wouldn't quite reach? The tsutaezori was just as cool, if not quite as rare.

    Rare kimarite watch

    Oh, darn. I looked at the thread title, and thought that some manufacturer had come out with a watch with 12 rare kimarite depicted around the dial. Alas.

    Banzuke for Aki 2022

    And three Ozeki, for symmetry. If we had two more Yokozuna, we'd have four of a kind.
