    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Hatsu 2021

    if shohoryu gets 7 wins but loses the playoff, will he still be auto promoted?

    Why don't they just have them speak japanese and sub it? it's weird hearing them struggle through it in English when it seems they would be a lot more comfortable speaking their native language.

    2021 "Kozumo" Hatsu Basho discussion thread

    Not sure why everyone has a problem with the hoshoryu midorifuji match. looked like a clear midori win. now ura v tohakuryu looked like it went the wrong way. ura definitely stepped out first.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    yes, but why does every foreign rikishi have an empty torikumi for the basho before their debut on the db? even if they were already with the stable why are they listed in the db if they don't participate, and why in maezumo and not banzuke-gai? shouldn't hatsu dohyo be the date of their first bout? that's how the NSK lists it. still, under this system, the main issue is that Arauma and Reon should both be listed in the same division, either both maezumo or banzuke-gai.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    On the Aki 2020 banzuke, Arauma is listed as mae zumo. however there were no mae zumo matches during that basho and the sole eligible rikishi (Reon) went from Bg to Jk in November. Shouldn't Arauma also be banzuke gai? or shouldn't his hatsu dohyo be 2020.11?

    Banzuke for Hatsu 2021

    Guess I need to change my shikona now too lol. Anyway I can do that? On a more serious note, that makushita joi looks absolutely stacked. So many sekitori level guys there fighting for promotion. will be very exciting to watch.
  7. So does anyone know why Asasekiryu managed to get it at the last minute? everyone seemed absolutely certain that Asanowaka would take over.

    Don't know why people have trouble with wakatakakage, I have 0 japanese knowledge besides being able to (poorly) read kana and it rolls right off the tongue for me. Double vowels like chiyonoo cause me trouble at times though.

    I don't believe wakatakamoto will ever reach juryo sadly. he's been stuck in mid makushita forever with middling results. The last year has been nothing but 4-3s and 3-4s, and he's almost 30. Hozan also isn't looking so good. an mk at the bottom of sandanme is a worrying sign.

    Persistence Watch - 2020

    Results for November 2020. The Jonokuchi 12 pair both achieved their kachikoshi. Nishikimaru after a year and a half and a shikona change, and Takatsukasa after a single appearance thanks to a playoff win against fellow persister Nishikio. Not so good news for the mk rikishi, who are now 'celebrating' mk landmarks. Nishikio has now spent two years makekoshi, and Hattorizakura has now spent a record 30 straight tournaments makekoshi, 27 of them winless. How much longer will he go?

    that's a pretty badass poster. can't wait for the basho. are there any older ones anywhere?

    Hozan didn't go kyujo, that's a database error. he lost on day 14 to Taranami to finish 3-4.

    I like how every tournament this year has gone to the final day to decide the yusho.

    Hokuseiho - Shot at a record?

    I think people should temper their expectations a little bit. he almost lost to Kaiseijo in that final bout. And did everyone forget that oshoryu is still stuck in upper makushita despite his identical start?

    he's from the same stable so not surprising, he learned from the best.
