    YDC convenes after Haru 2019

    I suppose if I were a Yokozuna, I'd rather have the YDC grumbling about something irrelevant than grumbling about my sumo. Especially if I had just put down a performance with relatively little for them to grumble about. Did they grumble about Kakuryu at all, or was Hakuho their only topic? (Also, why do I get the feeling that they would have grumbled about "lack of leadership" if he hadn't attempted to do something to mark the end of the era?)

    YDC convenes after Haru 2019

    The Google Translate version of the Yomiuri article is a work of art. If the age is no good, it will be good if it is hand-clamped! Three pegs in white birch, side trial "I feel uncomfortable" and complain On the 25th, the Yokozuna deliberation committee after the Grand Sumo Spring area was held at the Gokugikan of the two countries, and the Yokozaku Shirakiseki confessed to the audience from the committee that they urged the audience to tighten the triple in the winning interview received in Chichu It was one after another.  Hironori Yano, the chairman of the press conference, said, "There were a lot of committee members who felt discomfort. I told them to everyone (in the Sumo Association) that they were a little strange." At the end of the award ceremony, the Sumo Association performs a "God-raising ceremony" to return the god who got down to the earth to the heavens, and performs a triple closure. The members of the committee said, "What is the purpose of closing the award ceremony in the middle of the ceremony?"  Hakuto Seki sway urges spectators to sing in the interview at the Kyushu location in 2017, and has received great attention from the association as "involved in the dignity of Yokozuna". Shibatayama public relations manager (former Yokozuna Ono country) said, "If the age is no good, it will be good if it is hand-clamped." It is said to consider correspondence.

    Hey, maybe Shodai really is the next Ozeki. No, wait. He's Shodai. Never mind.

    Ridiculous Predictions for Haru 2019

    The YDC doesn't grumble about either one of the Yokozuna when they meet after the basho.

    Ridiculous Predictions for Haru 2019

    Ura turns out to be perfectly healthy after all, having faked a visit to the hospital for surgery, and wins the Makushita yusho with a zensho.

    Banzuke for Haru 2019

    Zow. Hakuho is making more than everyone else making ¥600,000 or more, combined, from Ikioi through Kakuryu.

    New Juryo for Haru 2019

    Didn't A Flock Of Seagulls have a famous song about that story?

    Are you ready for some sumo !!? Predictions

    He's kyujo. He might do that in Jonidan in March, or we might not see him on the dohyo again.
  13. For Takekaze, 5/02 is listed as both his pro debut and his makuuchi debut, although the basho count differs. Presumably, one of the two is a typo?
  14. Come to think of it, "dai-Yokozuna" is already in use as a de facto term for Yokozuna with 10+ yusho. It's not a rank (and probably shouldn't be), but it's a thing.
