    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
  4. 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! I copied the table from last time and updated it for 2022.01: Kimarite Makuuchi Juryo Makushita Sandanme Jonidan Jonokuchi Total Percentage Abisetaoshi 1 1 6 8 0.35% Amiuchi 1 1 0.04% Ashitori 1 2 1 4 0.18% Chongake 1 1 0.04% Fumidashi 1 1 0.04% Fusen (default) 4 2 6 1 3 16 0.70% Gasshohineri 0.00% Hansoku (foul) 1 1 2 0.09% Harimanage 1 1 0.04% Hatakikomi 18 21 48 52 50 5 194 8.53% Hikiotoshi 14 2 8 13 23 7 67 2.95% Hikkake 1 1 1 3 0.13% Ipponzeoi 1 1 0.04% Isamiashi 1 1 1 3 0.13% Izori 0.00% Kainahineri 1 1 1 3 0.13% Kakenage 2 2 0.09% Kakezori 0.00% Katasukashi 6 5 1 4 5 1 22 0.97% Kawazugake 1 1 0.04% Kekaeshi 1 1 2 0.09% Ketaguri 0.00% Kimedashi 2 1 1 4 0.18% Kimetaoshi 1 1 0.04% Kirikaeshi 1 1 2 0.09% Komatasukui 1 1 0.04% Koshikudake 1 1 0.04% Koshinage 0.00% Kotehineri 0.00% Kotenage 3 4 5 9 20 41 1.80% Kozumatori 0.00% Kubihineri 0.00% Kubinage 1 1 3 3 8 0.35% Makiotoshi 1 1 2 0.09% Mitokorozeme 0.00% Nichonage 0.00% Nimaigeri 0.00% Okuridashi 12 6 15 21 19 4 77 3.39% Okurigake 0.00% Okurihikiotoshi 1 1 0.04% Okurinage 1 2 3 0.13% Okuritaoshi 2 1 3 2 3 11 0.48% Okuritsuridashi 0.00% Okuritsuriotoshi 0.00% Omata 0.00% Osakate 0.00% Oshidashi 76 51 103 181 152 31 594 26.13% Oshitaoshi 9 13 18 29 15 1 85 3.74% Sabaori 0.00% Sakatottari 0.00% Shitatedashinage 3 3 6 0.26% Shitatehineri 2 1 1 4 0.18% Shitatenage 7 2 9 9 11 3 41 1.80% Shumokuzori 0.00% Sokubiotoshi 1 1 0.04% Sotogake 1 1 1 2 1 6 0.26% Sotokomata 0.00% Sotomuso 0.00% Sototasukizori 0.00% Sukuinage 4 4 5 11 11 3 38 1.67% Susoharai 1 1 0.04% Susotori 0.00% Tasukizori 0.00% Tokkurinage 0.00% Tottari 1 2 3 0.13% Tsukaminage 0.00% Tsukidashi 9 5 11 9 17 51 2.24% Tsukihiza 1 1 2 0.09% Tsukiotoshi 15 13 34 35 37 6 140 6.16% Tsukitaoshi 1 1 1 2 4 9 0.40% Tsukite 1 1 2 0.09% Tsumatori 0.00% Tsuridashi 2 2 4 0.18% Tsuriotoshi 0.00% Tsutaezori 0.00% Uchigake 1 2 3 0.13% Uchimuso 0.00% Ushiromotare 1 1 0.04% Utchari 1 1 2 0.09% Uwatedashinage 5 1 2 6 7 1 22 0.97% Uwatehineri 2 2 0.09% Uwatenage 12 5 18 30 32 8 105 4.62% Waridashi 0.00% Watashikomi 1 1 2 0.09% Yaguranage 0.00% Yobimodoshi 0.00% Yorikiri 73 40 83 176 167 27 566 24.90% Yoritaoshi 11 3 19 31 29 6 99 4.36% Zubuneri 0.00% 55 different kimarite used in the 2273 bouts of the Haru basho (not counting mae-zumo, of course). 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.
  9. Just wanted to share this message about my channel for the upcoming basho. So far Hiradoumi, Tomokaze, and Roga have been added to this list! I was thinking about doing makuuchi videos but then I remembered about Daylight Saving Time.... as long as @Kintamayama is going strong I won't make myself stay up late enough to do those. Hope everyone's safe and healthy - can't wait for the 14th!

    Rikishi Status - 2021 Haru Basho

    And he won his last match by sakatottari! I was wondering why he was showing a little smile after he won

    Hokuseiho - Shot at a record?

    Totally agree! He looked like he was in bad shape the first couple of matches but put together a string of wins, either by luck or strength. He could have easily lost his match yesterday after a slow tachiai but recovered quickly and took control. Wonder if he'll get another win?
