    Banzuke for Aki 2022

    This banzuke is wild but I'm excited to see the chaos that Tobizaru and Midorifuji will bring to the top match ups. Also really excited for Mitoryu, I was worried he was never gonna make it!
  3. Found a couple of articles describing Shohozan announcing retirements after the Nagoya basho (feel free to fact check this since I'm not great at translating from Japanese...): retired rikishi: Shohozan (Hanaregoma) (K) - https://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=6614 Amanoshima (Hakkaku) (Ms17) - https://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=11939 Gorikiyama (Takadagawa) (Ms17) - https://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=523 Miyabishin (Futagoyama) (Sd53) - https://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=12391 Wakaseido (Asahiyama) (Sd70) - https://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=12404 Tagomaru (Tagonoura) (Sd91) - https://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=12403 Kototaiko (Sadogatake) (Jd7) - https://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=11860 Tanaka (Sakaigawa) (Jd80) - https://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=12740 Machi (Shikoroyama) (Jd25) - https://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=12643 Chiyonomichi (Kokonoe) (Jk21) - https://sumodb.sumogames.de/Rikishi.aspx?r=12766

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho Talk, Nagoya 2022

    It definitely seems like the sensible decision, but this basho was so chaotic that I still don't really have any idea what will happen with the rest of the banzuke. So Ishiura, Kaisei, and Yago are going down? Excited to see what Kinbozan and Kanno can do with a full 15 match schedule!

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho Talk, Nagoya 2022

    didn't want to make a new thread for the next basho but new Juryo for Aki are Kinbozan, Kanno, and Takakento (returning). cue the speculation for the rest of the banzuke...

    Natsu 2022 Discussion Thread - here be spoilers

    I know Tamawashi has a long iron man streak but is it true that he hasn't gone kyujo or missed a match since 2004? I can't see sumoDB rikishi pages rn but that is ridiculous

    just saw intai announcements for Irodori and Gokushindo
  9. Usually @Yubinhaad has their Kimarite Statistics post up by now, and I really enjoy them so I thought I'd start one before it's no longer relevant!

Oshidashi once again takes the top spot ahead of Yorikiri, although it's interesting to see the difference between the two in each division. --- Some personal nominations for honorary gino-sho --- These rikishi accounted for the winning techniques only used once in the whole basho: Takeoka - amiuchi Yasunishi - chongake Senho - harimanage Ishiazuma - ipponzeoi Denuma - kawazugake Daiamami - kimetaoshi Chiyotaiyo - komatasukui Tokunomusashi - okurihikiotoshi Hidano - sokubiotoshi Ishiura - susoharai Takemaru - ushiromotare These rikishi won by rare kimarite twice (extra notable for the lower division rikishi!) Amanoshima - ashitori Chiyokozan - kubinage Ishiura - shitatehineri Tochinoshin - tsuridashi Raiho - uchigake I saw some chatter hoping that Ishiura would pick up a gino-sho for his two shitatenage, two shitatehineri, and a susoharai - I think he deserved it, but I would probably be too generous with special prizes if it was up to me... BUT the real technical outlier from this basho was Jd38 Raiho, who went (6-1) in his 2nd tournament in ozumo with wins by kubinage, okurinage, hatakikomi, okuridashi, and two wins by uchigake! --- You can find footage of the Juryo and Makushita techniques on NattoSumo's channel if their videos are still up, I've really appreciated that source since I've stopped making videos myself. If anyone has a source for divisions lower than Makushita please share!

    this is also his first tournament facing top division rikishi, and he's been wrestling his way up the banzuke.

    Atamifuji looked so excited to get his 4th win! So it's Atamifuji, Shimazuumi, Ryuden, and Takakento on the way up?

    Takagenji Caught Smoking Weed

    This is just conjecture… but is there any history or reason to believe that any other wrestlers would have something show up on a drag test? I have never heard anything about drugs like this since Wakakirin, but maybe I am just uninformed! Maybe the powers that be threw Takagenji under the bus to tell the others to clean up their act…

    I noticed Hagiwara’s henka habit too! I don’t get it because he has the size to overpower most people in Sandanme and lower Makushita.
