    Hakkiyoi! Ozumo promotion song

    I'm saddened that Gagamaru didn't go the oyakata route.

    Upcoming Kanreki

    Musashimaru has ballooned the last couple of years. He's had me worried for a while. I really don't want another Akebono.

    Obesity Deaths

    The cigarette culture is something that could theoretically be addressed without negatively impacting rikishi performance, the way body weight might.

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Kinbozan reminds me of Ichinojo in the interview room. Enormous foreigner with a small voice and darting eyes like "what on earth am I doing here!?"

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Even as far as successful henkas go, this was kinda embarrassing. (Fujiseiun - Asashiyu)

    What's with Oshoryu sporting twin black eyes?

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Terutsuyoshi's botched ashitori attempt looked like Hattorizakura taking a dive against that big scary opponent.

    Lower division celebs results

    Hozan/Naya is doing pretty well, considering how universally written-off he was before his career even started.

    Kyushu 2021 discussion

    Kagayaki, to my eye, looks like he's trying to diversify lately. He's been grabbing the mawashi more often, and visited inter-stable practice for the first time ever. He's probably clued in that he's hit a ceiling for the last few years. I don't expect dividends of it to come for a while though. I'm pretty sure he's been doing the same straight-ahead push sumo since his childhood.

    Hakuyozan injured yet again . The same knee as his giant brace.

    Kazakh Sd100 Kinbozan now 2-0. Not much of a bow going on.

    Rikishi Status - 2021 Kyushu Basho

    Hagiwara just got wheeled away in a pretty sorry looking state. Looked like something with his right knee.

    Makushita tsukedashi Oshoma lost in his first bout, against Mineyaiba.

    Ridiculous Predictions Kyushu 2021

    Local boy Shohozan wins the emperor's cup by default, as everyone else forgot it was actually being held in Kyushu this time.

    Retirees after Aki 2021

    I remember when Hakuho recruited him, he told him the first thing to do was lose some weight. Maybe he actually did, I don't have the numbers. Hakuho did change his mind about Enho gaining weight, but Toma wasn't putting up Enho results.

    Banzuke for Kyushu 2021

    Not even Kunio puts that many notes into it.

    Kyokai joint keiko - October 25th-28th 2021

    Unusual to see Ichinojo absent from these.

    Takagenji Caught Smoking Weed

    Well, other expulsions for criminal behaviour never made it to trial either, like Takatoriki, Kotomitsuki, Wakanoho, etc. It's not like this is vindicating him. In fact, when's the last time a rikishi actually did dragged in front of a judge?

    Hakuho intai raw overview

    Kanechika, that oyakata who married into the job, ousted the incumbent Miyagino, rarely attended keiko, and eventually got fired after being arrested for assault.

    Outstanding oyakata danpatsu-shiki

    Looks like he's shed plenty of weight already. This tweet has a more close-up photo.

    Aki Basho 2021 - Discussion Thread (Spoilers!)

    That was the daintiest, most courteous, ashitori I've ever seen.

    Rikishi Status - 2021 Aki

    Shishi looks like a very late withdrawal today. Not listed on the official site yet, but just gave a fusen-sho to Chiyootori.

    Most underrated/overlooked rikishi?

    Musashimaru. Remarkably forgettable for a dai-yokozuna. Just because he wasn't the first foreign-born yokozuna, and his career peaked in between two all time greats in Takanohana and Asashoryu. Even now I forget the guy's still in sumo as an oyakata.
