    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    So happy for Tochinoshin. I also feel like he was so mad with the controversial lose, he was like 'you go all out to prevent me to make it back to ozeki even when I compete honorably, watch me now'. Congratz Asanoyama. Now let's see what you can do against the best over 15 days.

    Natsu basho 2019 discussions [SPOILERS]

    I was so mad at Aoiyama going for the belt at the taichai for no reason against a guy who is so much better than him at this. He may have just walk out of the doyho on his own, that would have been pretty much the same. Disappointing ... So nice to see Tochinoshin being himself and handling his opponents like they were 6yo. Kaisei being ill/injured again, so sad. He had a pretty good setup with his rivals around him on the banzuke. Now let's just hope he can get a few wins to stay out of the demotion race next time. It's still good to have sumo back.

    Trump coming to the basho

    Well Japan is a hotbed for pro wrestling and we already know Trump loves WWE, so ... hopefully ...

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    It's not meant as a joke. When I watch Hakuho and Kisenosato do dohyo-iri, I feel the intensity. When I watch Takakeisho and Ichinojo, I feel like they go thru the motion with no emotions, and also they can barely raise their legs above their waiste. So yeah, I'm afraid it's going to be underwhelming compared to what we have today. Just a random thought.

    Haru Basho 2019 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Sunday I was thinking in let's say 3-4 years, if our yakozuna are Takakeisho and Ichinojo, how underwhelming the dohyo-iri ceremony will be.

    Abema TV all sumo live

    Seems like it's the Makuuchi content that gets banned 1st then the whole channel, right ? So, maybe you can keep posting the lower level parts as you usually do, but keep the Juryo and Makuuchi parts private and just post the direct links here ? I'm no expert on Youtube, so that might not work better. But I'm particularly interested in the lower divisions to follow the rising prospects. If that can allow you to keep your channel alive, it's a small step at least. Anyway Miselet, big thanks for your work for the community. Hope you find a way.

    New recruits for Hatsu 2019

    It's pretty hard to hear the names from the video above, but I think I heard Terasawa, Watanabe, Ounabara (not sure at all) and Kotonagahama, plus one more I couldn't guess. People with better knowledge or better ears shall confirm.

    He will retire after the July basho going 4-11 from J10w, and avoiding a Makushita demotion
