    Jūryō for Aki 2023

    Loving the shikona Tenshoho, much better than Kiho or Hakuoho.

    A quick query suggests he is the first. (Genbuyama doesn't appear on the next banzuke as he was demoted to Makushita, the DB not having complete data on toriteki pre-1936. He retired in 1932.)

    Ichinojo intai

    Wow. Less than a year after his Makuuchi yusho, and right after taking the Juryo yusho (that has to be a first, right?) His career was certainly one-of-a-kind, and quite the roller-coaster. It looks almost unrealistic looking back at it. He was fun to watch for his boulder-like ways in the ring, and i'm sure i and many others will miss him.

    exYokozuna Orora performs kanreki dohyoiri

    Jeez, he's lost so much weight! interesting to see that he's kept the topknot, even this long after retirement.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yūshō Discussion Haru 2023

    That actually makes sense. but here he's lost, and presumably not demoted...

    Maybe Tsushimanada was spared because he was scheduled against rikishi like Ichinojo and Ochiai late into the basho, even though their records were vastly different?

    Very interesting fact, but i thought i'd let you know it's 86 years

    Banzuke for Haru 2023

    Really! now that i look at it he seems to have such consistently good banzuke luck. It's weird how he lucks out so often. Conversely he doesn't seem to have great promotion luck. Is the banzuke committee conspiring to keep Kagayaki squarely at low Maegashira, no more no less?

    Has Ichinojo broken the record for fastest fall to Juryo after a yusho?

    Banzuke for Haru 2023

    True, but let's be honest. He didn't have much of an ozeki career like most other ozeki who retired to avoid falling to juryo (Konishiki, Kirishima, etc.) Apart from Kotoshogiku, the other two ozeki who fought in juryo after falling naturally were Miyabiyama and Daiju. doesn't that say something? additionally, this is a new era and the standards for retirement are different. I could easily see Tochinoshin continuing in juryo for a time. He could bounce back, but i see him staying in juryo until his retirement early next year.

    Ajigawa beya born

    It could be intended but i don't see how "now" makes for a good shikona...

    Banzuke for Haru 2023

    Does he plan to win by taking advantage of his opponent's fears of public spaces?

    Banzuke for Haru 2023

    Since Kotonowaka was K1w last basho, he is merely staying the same rank while he's jumped by Wakamotoharu (K2w last basho), whereas putting Hoshoryu ahead of Wakatakakage would have been a demotion for Wakatakakage. That or of course they could have some Onami bias
