    ex-Yoshikaze starts his own heya

    I'm surprised he was able to open his own heya. I thought he was in deep financial trouble with that lawsuit (whatever happened to that?) and everything surrounding his psycho ex wife.

    For Hatsu 2024, Kotonowaka shows 13-2 J when it should be 13-2 D. Also, there are no results for Maezumo.

    Banzuke for Haru 2024

    Noticed something strange. According to the footage, Nishikio competed as Sato in Maezumo, however the kyokai website only shows him as Nishikio. This is in contrast to Anhibiki and Anryukai, who also changed their names when joining Jk but have their Mz names shown in their shikona history.

    Michinoku beya likely to close

    The right decision, speaking as a fan. would've have been a shame to lose out on some exciting sanyaku match ups.

    Share bar needs an update - or removal?

    At the bottom of a thread's page there is a bar with links to various sites you can share to. Problem is, half of the sites given are heavily outdated and pretty much dead or no longer relevant. G+, Delicious, and Stumbleupon are dead (I've never even heard of the latter two lol), and Digg is something completely different now. And thinking about it, do we really need this bar? does anyone actually use this feature? it seems to me it would be best just to remove this bar altogether.

    Banzuke for Haru 2024

    Personally I'm fine with the keeping chiyosakae over chiyomaru, it's what I would've done as well. having a 5-10 J12w go down, but not having the guy just half a rank higher with the same score stay just doesn't sit right with me lol. There's a few stories there: - Chiyomaru fighting back in the toriteki ranks for the first time in a long while, - Hot prospects Onokatsu and Kayo edging closer to sekitori debuts. - Veteran Kotodaigo hoping to finally break through after being previously snubbed for promotion. - Kitadaichi's unexpected improvement into a joi capable rikishi - will Tsukahara pull another 1-6, or will he finally pull a Shonnanoumi and realise he is 6'4 lol.

    According to JP wikipedia, he was born on April 18 1871, which was the 29th day of the second lunar month on the old kyureki calendar. No source for this info, and EN wiki says 1 March for some reason.

    Something extremely minor that nobody would really care about, but the Win/Loss Matricies don't account for brothers in different stables when showing valid opponents. Checked for Tobizaru/Hidenoumi and Roho/Hakurozan and both show as valid matchups when obviously they aren't.

    I'm really getting annoyed with their bizarre scheduling decisions lately. They're going to cost Onosato and Onosho rightly deserved sanshos despite being outside shots at the yusho at best and falling. They cost Tsurugisho a sansho the exact same way last year. Why are they not putting them against Takanosho and Tamawashi? Why is Terunofuji going to miss Daiesho? Shonannoumi is quietly having a horrible basho. wonder what's wrong with him? Looks like we're not going to be having any shin sekitori this time. seems like it's been a while since that happened.

    Lower division celebs results

    I have a few thoughts on the list. - a few of them seem to only be there because they are hafu. I'm not sure they really belong on this list based on their results. I would remove Nabatame, Maikeru, Itadaki and Kaitoma. Otani and Tanji (why no Taiga?) on the chopping block if they don't improve. And former Makuuchi Kotokuzan is a much more noteworthy hafu than all of them, he should be on the list based on this criteria. - You have all of the tsukedashi on the list except for Fukai, Asashiyu and Daishomaru. Asashiyu I can understand (though I wouldn't mind him on the list) and Daishomaru is over the hill (though he was a long time sekitori mainstay), but why not Fukai? I can see him making it to Juryo in the near future. - Perhaps Kitaharima deserves a spot on this list after his recent resurgence? - Furanshishu is the only rikishi from the Philippines, I guess that's kind of noteworthy. though he's not very good. I can go 50/50 on him. - Maybe add Shoketsu, the oldest guy on the banzuke. Sure he's no Hanakaze, but 47 is still noteworthy. - what's the reason for Higonomaru? Of course, this is your list, you can do what you like with it.

    Congratulations to Kirishima. I remember thinking, half in jest, that he would be the next yokozuna back in his upper Maegashira days. Looks like that may be a reality soon based on how he has been fighting lately. Kotonowaka has also seemed to have improved, shame he couldn't capture the yusho after his strong start. hope to see him at ozeki next year. On the other hand, the shin makuuchi this basho were very disappointing, I expected a lot better from them. Who'd have thought former Juryo rank and filer Churanoumi would post the best score?

    Poor Tsurugisho was robbed of a sansho back in May when they put him against the Sanyaku much longer than necessary.

    Rikishi younger than everyone above them on the banzuke

    Interestingly, aside from Shoketsu, all of them have made it to the sekitori ranks. And besides Dairaido, all of those sekitori made it to Makuuchi.

    Perhaps this is already known, but there are a few obscure short lived rikishi with strange shikona in the db. (X)hoshi (x)ta# ?gatake Moto(x) Yasu? (x)yama I assume these are just names with unknown readings which should have the # symbol in the db. These two have the number 2 in their Japanese shikona 國見山2 (Kunimiyama) 駒泉2 (Komaizumi) These three have extra information in brackets Onomatsu(Kazu) Oyama(Gen) Oyama(Tani)

    Man is it sad to see Mitakeumi in the curtain jerking role today. Just a year ago was regularly wrestling the final match.
