    Yusho Portraits

    The removed portrait becomes the property of the yusho winning rikishi. He can then donate the portrait to museums, train stations, etc. as he sees fit, or keep it within his heya or family archives.

Tenshinhan is our most agreeable player, and Chishafuwaku is very disagreeable. Endo is in a pit in his match against Mitakeumi. The rest of the matches are spread rather evenly. Let's get this thing going! EIGHT matches and no 21 kyujos on Day 1!!! Note: One typo corrected. Thanks, Profomisakari.

    When there is an odd number of rikishi available for a torikumi cycle, someone (usually a low ranker) will get an extra match.

    Ridiculous Predictions for Natsu 2019

    Aoiyama uses his new-found power to pull off a 14-1 record, but he loses the ketteisen to Enho.

    21 Natsu 19, The Results

    Welcome to the 21 game for Natsu 19. The game is a simple pre-basho game in which you are given 21 matchups that may occur in the next basho. Your job is to decide whether each match will occur, and, if so, who will win it. Normally, each of the 42 makuuchi rikishi will be found in one and only one match; however, Hakuho is looking questionable for Natsu, so we have added a second match for Enho. The matchups are selected on the basis of closeness in rank and the closeness in win-loss records. The intent is to select 21 of the least predictable matches. Entries are submitted as posts in this topic. Each match will have two rikishi labeled “A” and “B”. For each match, enter the match number and either A or B for your selected winner. If you do not think the match will occur, enter an “X”. For example: 1. A 2. X 3. B ... The winner is the entry with the most correct answers. (X counts.) If one of the rikishi for a match does not appear on the dohyo for the entire basho, that match will be counted as correct for all entries. An entry other than A, B or X will be counted as incorrect. If two or more entrants have the same number of correct picks, the one having the FEWEST other entrants making each of those correct picks will be the leader. If the agreement counts are equal, the entrant with the earliest time of entry will be the leader. Entry deadline is 2 days before shonichi at 05:00 AM (JST) on Friday, May 10. No new entries or entry modifications will be accepted after the deadline. Here are the 21 matches for Natsu 19. The numbers in parens are the the results of the most recent matches between the two. Natsu 19 A B 1 O1e Goeido (2-2) Yw Kakuryu 2 Se Ichinojo (2-3) O1w Takayasu 3 M1w Kotoshogiku (1-1) O2e Takakeisho 4 M1e Hokutofuji (3-0) Sw Tochinoshin 5 Ke Aoiyama (0-1) M3w Tamawashi 6 M2e Endo (1-2) Kw Mitakeumi 7 M2w Daieisho (1-3) M4e Okinoumi 8 M4w Abi (2-1) M3e Chiyotairyu 9 M5e Myogiryu (1-0) M5w Ryuden 10 M6e Takarafuji (1-1) M6w Yoshikaze 11 M7w Meisei (0-0) M7e Shodai 12 M8e Kaisei (0-0) M9w Tomokaze 13 M8w Asanoyama (0-0) M12e Shimanoumi 14 M10e Kagayaki (0-0) M9w Nishikigi 15 M10w Onosho (1-1) M11e Shohozan 16 M11w Tochiozan (0-0) M12w Yago 17 M13e Chiyomaru (2-2) M13w Sadanoumi 18 M14w Enho (2-2) M14e Tokushoryu 19 M17e Chiyoshoma (0-0) M14w Enho 20 M15w Kotoeko (1-1) M15e Terutsuyoshi 21 M16e Daishoho (2-1) M16w Ishiura Each match must appear on a separate line in your entry. Use shift-enter to avoid double-spacing.

    Ex-Kurohimeyama passes away

    He spent the entire 70's decade as a 6-9 to 9-6 member of the joi meatgrinder. He was a yusho-killer who was always a major hurdle for those who were looking for fame and fortune.

    News of abdication and new reign

    Kanji structures evolve over the centuries. Think of it as this is the structure in use at the time that the Manyoshu was created.
