    Such a shame. I remember he once posted the best fought 2-13 I've seen at his brief peak at the top of makuuchi lol. He was always a bit of underachiever though, kinda like Endo. Definitely when compared to rival Asanoyama, shame they didn't have one last match next basho.

    Bit late, but glad i'm not the only one who's been impressed lately with Setonoumi. he has really recovered from his sandanme slump. Also looking like quite a strong makushita race, it's a shame asa is pretty much guaranteed to win it. Also, perhaps the chiyotairyu discussion should be moved to it's own thread?

    Oshouma looks like he just stepped wrong, had all his weight on the top of his toes. he should be ok Former heyamates Tomokaze and Yago fought each other today, was looking forward to it. When's the last time that happened? can't be that common.

    Yesterday's Chiyosakae v Tokushoryu match was their second meeting. their first meeting was in maezumo all the way back in 2009, 13 years ago. Was a pretty stacked maezumo class too. Six future sekitori, and all except chiyosakae made it to makuuchi. even has a few guys who could've possibly made it if not for outside circumstances like recently retired Nogami, and Takanohana's first troublesome twins, Takatoshi and Takageppo.

    do you have any pictures of Oazuma's danpatsu shiki? I kind of want to see what they did with his tiny mage lol.

    Juryo promotions for Aki 2022

    Poor Roga missing out on promotion yet again. This will be 12 straight basho in the promotion zone, even worse luck than Tochimaru. Hopefully he finally makes it next basho.

    So it looks like they're just leaving the Kaigo v Kototaiki non bout as blank. I thought they did a double fusen in situations like this. (This is definitely going to lead a problem in the db at some point, i just know it)

    Nagoya 2022

    A bit late, but here's some interesting long gaps this basho. Nionoumi v Jokoryu on Day 10 was the first time they met since 2012, during better days for both men in Juryo. In contrast, Takakeisho v Wakamotoharu on Day 9 was their first meeting since 2015, back in Sandanme. Who would've thought back then they would be at the top of the banzuke in the future?

    Corona and sumo

    Do you know what the reasons were for those strange scores? Ancient banzuke are so bizarre sometimes.

    I can't believe it, zabuton were flying. thought i would never see those again, what a pleasant surprise.

    Rikishi Status - 2022 Nagoya Basho

    Seems like Oshoumi is finally back. Excited to see him climb back up, he was very impressive before injury.

    Latest stock exchange news - kabu, Oyakata transfers, etc.

    Perhaps he just didn't want to be an oyakata. he could've stayed for a few more years until say, Mintatogawa reached mandatory age. Or he could've maybe took the vacant nishikijima temporarily.
