  1. May 2022 Basho (Natu--Summer) Summary; Cumulative Statistics; Selected Comparisons with March 2022 Basho and Index to all Videos and Photos (Scroll to the bottom of the page) I am linking you to the summary Post. From that page you can link to any other Post. Those who are unfamiliar with the Sport should start at the Introductory Post, which will give you all the links you need to get to know the Sport. The Summary page contains: "Pennant Race Graphs" for the Top 2 Divisions for all Rikishi (wrestlers) who finished with a winning record; A complete recap of the winner's performance, including video links to each of his matches; Special Prize Winners; Winners of all the Lower Divisions with video links to the Championship winning matches, Kimarite (Finishing Move) statistics for the Top Two Divisions with comparisons to the Previous Tournament,, as well as Kimarite analysis for Top Division Rikishi who won 10 or more matches, Exhaustive results links including Final Stable and Ichimon standings (all explained in the post), Kensho (Independent Prize money per match) statistics. Match Time Statistics for Top Division and 2nd Division (I put 2nd Divsion Statistics together with a stop watch app., as they are not available in any source I could find. Kachi-Koshi (winning record)/Make-Koshi (losing record) for the Top Two Divisions, sorted by the Day they were achieved so you can see how they did "down the stretch) Top Rank Performance in the Top Two Divisions Maegashira (Rank and Filers) v san'yaku (Top Rankers) in the Top Division Juryo (2nd Division) performance against Top Division Opponents. AND THAT'S ONLY THE BEGINNING. AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST YOU WILL FIND A COMPLETE INDEX TO VIDEO LINKS TO OVER 200 MATCH VIDEOS AND PHOTO LINKS TO MORE THAN 2,000 PHOTOS. So for those who want the Tournament in a rather large thumbnail, the summary is the place to go. For those who want more, follow the Tournament Day by Day. Again, all posts are linked to all other posts. I have tried to create an integrated information system for a small topic. This has really been about the quest of a retired Internet Librarian to hone his skills. Also about the joy of a lifetime Pro Wrestling fan to see Wrestling shows the language, culture, ritual--ahh ritual, of another country. If you enjoy it 1/10th as much as I enjoyed doing it, I will be a happy retired Librarian. See you all, same time, same station, beginning July 10.
  2. MAY 2022 (NATSU) BASHO LINKS AND STATISTICS BLOG--DAY 9 Links to archived Makuuchi Day 9 videos , photos, match articles, selected Rikishi quotes, match results, Kimarite and time statistics with comparisons to the March Basho. I have added match results and Kimarite statistics for Juryo. Also Top Rank performance, Maegashira v san'yaku, and Top Ten performance in Juryo. Have added Time of Match statistics for Juryo (no official source, so I used a stop watch app). Probably not exact, but close. Anyway, if anyone knows of an "official" source available in English please let me know. Hope it increases your enjoyment of the Basho.
  3. MAY 2022 (NATSU) BASHO LINKS AND STATISTICS BLOG--DAY 8 INTERESTING LINK IN THIS POST, FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T ALREADY SEEN IT. HAPPENED IN JONOKUCHI The highlight is Yamato's (Jk10w) victory over Sato (Jk16e) in a re-match after the first match was too close to call. He used the rare Kimarite (finishing move), Tasukizori, (Reverse Backwards Body Drop) which has an overall rate of 0.06%. Since 2000, the Kimarite has been used 21 times (all divisions). This is the only time so far it has been used in this Basho. Also,on Day 8, the match between Chiyoshoma and Takarafuji lasted longer than all of the Juryo matches combined: 123.8 seconds to 94.3 for 13 matches.
