    Kakuryu to Retire

    He's already started losing some weight, it seems.

    New juryo pics Nagoya 2023

    The latter.

    New ozeki Kirishima

    You mean Haruo Kirishima.

    Guess Kiribayama's Aite - May 2023 edition

    I would say Mitakeumi simply because if Miyabiyama is any precedent, Mitakeumi's not going to get easily repromoted to ōzeki without an outstanding performance.
  5. I don't think it's about career ranks but how many basho in makuuchi, plus some of them might have been grandfathered in or opened their heya before criteria were tightened.

    Ishiura Intai

    That would have been me among others, but tabloids might have started it first.
  7. It has to, and given what was discussed in the thread apropos of Kakuryū, means Hakuhō probably had a hand in buying him out.

    Ishiura Intai

    The intai isn't surprising. The shūmei is. I wonder how this fits into his plan to succeed his father. Did that fall through, or is Ishiura simply the first of a line of Hakuhō deshi that will occupy Magaki when need be?
  9. I know what you meant but this caused me to do a double take.

    New ozeki Kirishima

    Interesting that Kakuryū is in a suit instead of mon-tsuki kimono. Did he not get the memo?

    New Juryo for July

    Better still, I hope Hidenoumi is demoted instead of Enhō, forlorn hope though that may be.

    Guess Kiribayama's Aite - May 2023 edition

    So I guess we need a new one now?

    Natsu 2023 discussion (results)

    Will he go low and slow like Harumafuji? Harumafuji's dohyō-iri was beautiful. But given it's Miyagino, they're probably going to do Hakuhō's variant of Shiranui, which tbh I'm not a big fan of.

    New ozeki Kirishima

    Probably also a good time to mention Herouth's observation: Kirishima II is the 6th Mongolian to be promoted to ōzeki. The other 5 were all subsequently promoted to yokozuna. No Mongolian has ever capped out at ōzeki (but at least two have capped out at sekiwake that I can remember offhand, though).
