  4. How many first-time promotions to makuuchi there will be in 2022? Bonus points if you guess the names too. Poll closes on December 23, the day before the next banzuke is announced. The total for 2021 was only 2, the lowest number since the six-tournament format was adopted in 1958.

    He opened 11 tournaments (first bout of day 1); I don't know if it's a record but I hope that some DB query magician can find more of his hidden records to put in the Top10

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2021

    I know that Elo Ratings can't be used as a banzuke predictor (yet), but it's interesting to note that Hidenoumi didn't pass Hoshoryu on the last day. So it's a possibility to place Hidenoumi behind the duo Chiyonokuni-Hoshoryu and above the duo Kiribayama-Myogiryu.

    of course look at the current W/L-Matrix: Kiribayama is the rikishi number 17, and he will go up to 16 if he'll keep the same rank.

    Promotion/Demotion and Yusho discussion Haru 2021

    Banzuke prediction from BBM Japan: the two M4 need to go down half a rank or it will look like a promotion as there is one less san'yaku above.
  23. To mark the 10th anniversary of the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami a ceremony will be held in the afternoon of March 11 at the National Theater in Tokyo: NHK World prepared a page with several videos on demand: but other videos are planned for the coming days, so please check the schedule: Tokyo Lens posted a little documentary too:
