    September (Aki) Basho- offical thread (yay..)

    They were an ex-ozeki at some point (well, some are still)? Their shikona start with T? They had a pet bunny? They like Calbee chips??

    Shohozan is also a Yuya. But I guess his has very different meaning

    Sumo’s newest Ozeki — Shodai Naoya

    Nice, I didn't know that Shodai used to be Tokitenku's tsukebito. If only he had absorbed Tokitenku's various techniques he'd become a more formidable rikishi than he is now.

    Sumo’s newest Ozeki — Shodai Naoya

    How about we give Mitakeumi NTNO status now? Might work in his favor.

    Videos (all days) - Aki 2020

    Wow he sounds quite different in the ceremony. I thought it was an announcer or something, but it's actually Shodai TNO (the new ozeki)! Kinta-san, I almost thought you were specially invited by NSK to attend the ceremony via zoom. Probably I'm having too many zoom meetings these days...

    Ah no, I was hoping that he was on an upwards trajectory to make a comeback to Jonokuchi 15. If only he had a loving, supportive uncle...

    I don't know. Maybe because he's just such a nice guy everybody likes to "play" with. He never scowls like Tochi as discussed above

    Maybe he's just trying to suggest a new shikona for him... I wanted to like this but out of reacts. The oft-ridiculed punching-bag rikishi has now found glory!

    Mitakeumi never had an "almost" moment (and he has zero junyusho count!). Shodai had at least two -- his dad said that if he missed this one as well, he might not get a chance again for a long time. Thankfully it worked this time.

    My internet acted up during the broadcast, but it's working ok now. I'll just watch the yusho ceremony with happy tears.

    I bet he will change his shikona to Masayo, to honor his grandmother 正代 正代 Mitakeumi said that like... two years ago? Helloooo, you've got 2 guys leapfrogged you already, maybe you need a third one?

    Sweeeeet, exciting buildup and finale for the basho! Whoever wins tomorrow, I'll be happy. Guess I'll tune in to NHK's broadcast before visiting my favourite grocery store
