    I know it's halfway to Aki already but I made a video of all of the kimarite used in the Makuuchi division in Nagoya, comments/tips appreciated!

    Didn't you see the look on Kakuryu and Takayasu's faces today? Kakuryu looked like he got away with one, Takayasu did a funny frown and shook his head.

    Both Yokozuna and the only Ozeki to win won by hatakikomi today. None of them seemed particularly pleased about how they won their bouts. Doesn't seem like anyone at the top is comfortable right now.

    I'm a Takayasu fan, but I'll believe it when I see it...

    Time to find some new favorites!

    Why do people assume that rikishi will retire when they're wrestling through injuries that aren't career ending? Tochinoshin and Tamawashi both have a Yusho and multiple kinboshi in their mochi-kyuukin, and earn > $30k USD just by showing up to the basho; that doesn't even account for any kensho (assuming they eventually win a couple...). As long as they're sekitori, they would be walking away from a good amount of money by retiring.

    Konosuke is the best gyoji, he doesn't put up with any BS from anyone.

    Does anyone know where I can find juryo recaps? I could find them last basho, but I haven't found any for this one.

    I love Ryuden, most rising stars are oshi wrestlers and he and Asanoyama are very strong on the belt. Read into his back story and injury history and you might be more of a fan.

    Crowdsourced injury report

    You might be better off making a list of rikishi that aren't injured... Just off the top of my head, Hakuho (arm), Tochinoshin (leg, shoulder), Kakuryu (leg, I think?), Asanoyama (concussion), Ichinojo (back), and Enho (shoulder) have all had injuries reported in the media recently.

    Latest kabu-babu changes

    How does that work? When Kotoshogiku retires and decides he wants it, does Tenkaiho lose his position? I haven't been watching nearly as long as you have so I figured I would miss a few. I was looking for an thread discussing rikishi who used to be in makuuchi but dropped down the banzuke, but I can't find it anymore! Also, I think somewhere in this thread, it says the cut-off is 28 basho. There are also a few other rikishi (Daieisho, Chiyonokuni, maybe a few more?) who are in the top division (or have been there recently) that will probably meet eligibility requirements pretty soon. I found that after looking through this thread, it's really interesting and useful!

    Latest kabu-babu changes

    Just now learning about all of this kabu stuff and I have a few questions. Is it assumed that most elders stick around until they're forced to retire at 70 (or pass away earlier, I guess)? Which means the only open kabu for 2019 is Tateyama, and there won't be any more available until the four in 2021 (two on the same day!)? Do you have to acquire elder stock in the same ichimon you wrestled in? Not every rikishi wants to be an elder, but for now the rikishi that could be elders but don't have a kabu are: Hakuho (ichidai-toriyoshi); Kotoshogiku, Goeido, Takayasu, Takakeisho (all eligible for 3 year JSA membership); Toyonoshima, Myogiryu, Kotoyuki, Takarafuji, Shodai, Mitakeumi (all Sekiwake); Shohozan, Chiyotairyu, Jokoryu, Onosho, Hokutofuji, Abi, Ryuden (all Komusubi); Sadanoumi, Toyohibiki, (am I forgetting anyone?) I left off non-Japanese rikishi b/c I haven't heard of anyone besides Hakuho talking about becoming a Japanese citizen. But this seems like a lot of people that need kabu! Do some retired rikishi want elder stock but can't afford it? Or has it generally worked out that rikishi that hope to acquire elder stock end up with one? Also, what's up with Onishiki and the Yamashina kabu? Are they looking for a buyer? Thanks for the help!

    Besides the usual favorites, I loved the energy from Myogiryu, Chiyotairyu, and Kotoeko today. Myogiryu made quick work of Shimanoumi, Chiyotairyu's one trick still works, and Kotoeko is looking balanced and slippery as ever. Glad to see Kaisei can hold on for a "longer" bout like that too, maybe he's back to his good form.
