    Hiro Morita’s “Sumo Prime Time”

    I still belive SPT is a misunderstanding. Considering the resources they have their content is sloppy and boring for me. Today’s video of senshuraku was a… WTF was it? Asking every non asian passerby turned up around Kokugikan to shout “Sumo Prime Time” to the camera, do they think it is cool? I need something unique that I can’t find on youtube in english, something extra, reports interviews, archive, analysis, donno but this is by far amateur approach to me.

    I've been following sumo since 1996, (I still give thanks to Eurosport and dear Sid!) with a few minor hiatuses, but I've never seen such a weak field... We have a kripli yokozuna and three ozeki, which, if we were to mix them together, would make half a Chiyotaikai or half a Kaio... I am pretty much sad to see this downgrading of my beloved sport. Nowadays I rather watch the lower juryo youngsters they might give some hope.

    Hiro Morita’s “Sumo Prime Time”

    just few examples for similar contents after a short simple search, but there are many more on YouTube. To be honest Hiro's video did not gave me any extra (Hiro practicing shiko and other basic sumo trainig elements is very similar that he and Raja had already made on other NHK's english speaking videos. But no problem we are not the same perhaps I am too demanding. I did not want to hurt anyone's feelings, my apologies.

    Hiro Morita’s “Sumo Prime Time”

    so far i haven't found any content on this channel that couldn't be found on other unofficial sumo channels for years. of course, i guess at first this content is not for us, but rather for new fans (at least i hope so) i for example would like to see summaries of old archive tournaments from the 70s 80s 90s, bibliography of legendary yokozunas rikishi, which so far could only be accessed in Japanese. of course it's still early for any criticism, but knowing Hiro Morita's work on NHK I have my doubts that the content I'm currently seeing would go in that direction... Anyway, I'm rather glad that kyokai finally noticed that there are sumo fans outside Japan.

    This damn covid has completely neutered the atmosphere of sumo matches... I'm afraid that the cheering will never be the same as before the covid.

    Is there any information on when cheering will be allowed again? It would be nice to see life return to the sumo arenas as well as spectators.

    Whenever I hear or read claims like this Jokoryu and Chiyotairyu come to my mind…

    I watched again all basho from 2012 during April. I wish I didn’t. There is an extreme contrast in quality of sumo compared to these days. The drop of quality is beyond any expectations. this Sanyaku would be not above low maegashira rank at that time. so sad.
