    Kokonoe's decline

    I've been following sumo without missing a single basho since Tochinoshin held the Emperor's cup in Hatsu 2018, but before, I used to watch it in Eurosport when Akebono and Takanohana started to fade and Asashoryu replaced them as the big deal, around year 2000. On that time, I liked Chiyotaikai a lot, and I was happy to discover after those years he became oyakata and the head coach from Kokonoe beya. But in the last two years or so, almost all the sekitori have retired: Chiyotairyu, Chiyootori, Chiyonokuni... and the ones keeping sekitorihood, like Chiyoshoma or Chiyomaru, or visiting it for some short time, like Chiyonoumi, Chiyonoo, Chiyoarashi or Chiyosakae, are quite old and probably won't bring the good days back . So I wonder Kokonoe such a bad trainer, he has bad luck, 0 scouting vision, whydo you think Kokonoe is not a powerhouse anymore?

    Sagari off

    About the's funny somehow the difference between the kind of material for the sekitori and the toriteki, and specially the stiffness in the formers. But of course it goes attached to the rank, the same the mawashi itself does. But my question is...why do the sumo wrestlers usually take it off after a bout? is just a tradition? or is just an unconfortable thing they want to get rid off as soon as possible? does anyone know?

    For sure Kirishima and Hoshoryu should be the favourites this time, despite the latter's loss today. I think they'll have more succesful Ozeki careers than the last ones. Sad that Hakuoho is kyujo, but he chose the wisest path. Hopefully he'll be back in action for Hatsu kicking some asses. And now that Onosato seems focused, let's hope for a fast raise through Juryo to reach Makuuchi as soon as possible. Undoubtely the confrontation between Miyagino and Nishonoseki, impersonated in Hakuoho, Kiho and Tenshoho, and Onosato and Takahashi respectively, will be fun to watch in the next years.

    Somehow this decision makes me feel blue

    Preparations of the masses- Nagoya 2023

    Any news on Takayasu? He usually trains hard before basho, going for degeiko and doing 4599929284228 bouts. But I haven't read anything about him lately, except the wedding stuff.
  8. I hope Wakamotoharu gets it. I have a soft spot for the guy. Daieisho has been looking good for years, and has already a yusho. Hoshoryu, well, he's a talent for sure, and he has been in the fandom talk for a while now. But the Onami guy has been always overshadowed by his younger brother and suddenly...Pop! He's the real deal. And if he achieves promotion with a great utchari in the end, even better :))
  9. he's becoming the bad boy I always heard his stable master was before joining ozumo xD

    Ikioi retires

    Probably it's more inspiring to compose something based on astrology than astronomy. If Holst had composed the piece thinking about carbon or hydrogen, instead of greek gods and other stuff, the result had been quite different

    Until you have to play Mars four times a day for one week for school concerts, and want to kill someone, like me last week xD

    Sorry for him, but maybe he will understand now the danger of falling of the dohyo, and stop dame-oshing everyone

    Meisei is truly Terunofuji's kryptonite. He's so aggressive against him, never stays in the same place, changes angles continually, and Terunofuji has no clue
