    My focus was not on 3 consecutive basho, but only 3 in a row in their head to head bouts. I should make that clear in my original post

    Tamawashi's kinboshi on day 6 has prompted me to make this thing. It's a list of maegashira who beat one yokozuna three in a row in their head to head bouts, thus earning kinboshi: Yamanishiki vs Miyagiyama Tatekabuto vs Minanogawa Kotonishiki vs Chiyonoyama Narutoumi vs Kagamisato Daigo vs Tochinoumi Tamawashi vs Terunofuji Here is the query I used.

    I got an idea from the above datas you guys showed. How about rikishi who are of both the birth year and the hatsu dohyo classes and reached at least sanyaku. Using this query, I made a list of exactly that. I only included the ones who debuted in the 6 basho PY era. Sorted by hatsu dohyo. Formatted as follows: BirthYear_HatsuDohyo Shikona [CareerHighRank] 1946_196105 Fujinokawa S Haguroiwa K 1948_196403 Aobajo S Kurohimeyama S 1948_196405 Kongo S Wakajishi K 1951_197403 Dewanohana* S Masudayama* S 1958_197403 Tagaryu S Toryu S 1959_197503 Daijuyama S Kirishima O 1962_197803 Kotoinazuma K Mitoizumi S Onokuni Y 1963_197903 Futahaguro Y Kotogaume S Hokutoumi Y Takanofuji K (were heyamates and both retired right after 199205) 1962_198503 Ryogoku* K Tochinowaka* S (made sanyaku debut together in 198707) 1971_198703 Oginishiki K Takanonami O 1972_198803 Kaio O Takanohana Y Wakanoyama K 1976_199203 Takanowaka S Wakanosato S (were heyamates) 1976_199903 Kotomitsuki* O Takamisakari* K 1986_200905 Aoiyama S Myogiryu* S (made makuuchi debut together in 201111) 1988_201105 Chiyotairyu* K Jokoryu K (born in Tokyo and made sanyaku debut together in 201409) 1992_201503 Hokutofuji K Mitakeumi* O * - Hatsu dohyo was MsTD

    And as a side note, while many rikishi have stringed 7-8 -> 6-9 -> 5-10, no one has gone 7-8 -> 6-9 -> 5-10 -> 4-11 before. Although Churanoumi has a chance at it this basho, I doubt he can make the perfect downfall to hell

    Baraki should definitely be current "V" rikishi (could be also all-time). I came across this post which says his father named him Baraki after the film "The Valachi Papers" when he was born

    I'd nominate Aran (Alan), Baruto (Baltic) and Irumagawa for all-time "L". I think it's right to nominate Aran and Baruto cuz their shikona contains the transliteration of the letter L. As for current "L", I nominate Urutora - I believe it's the transliteration of Ultra. For X, I found Kusunishiki, "kusu" as Gurowake suggested. As for current ones, I guess Akiseyama or Hokuseiho (it almost sounds like Hoxeiho from Japanese speakers)

    I just now realized that Hoshoryu's result in his Komusubi debut is the same as his shisho , heya-mate Meisei and uncle's debuts (8-7). They all got their kachi-koshi on the final day too

    All the shin- Komusubi, Sekiwake and Ozeki in Haru basho have gone kachi-koshi. Last time this happened was in Natsu 1976. Another similarity between these 2 basho to look at is the heya which the promotees belong to: Ozeki Asahikuni and komusubi Hoshoryu - Tatsunami Sekiwake Washuyama and ozeki Mitakeumi - Dewanoumi. And Atamifuji and Kurosegawa, who was also shin-juryo, are of Isegahama, and ended their basho at 7-8. (2 different Isegahama-beya)

    Before Futabayama, Shimizugawa also had won the yusho in his Sekiwake debut. As a result of the Shunjuen Incident he couldn't make his debut at the rank in Haru 1932. So the query function didn't work here. I was informed about it when NHK showed this: (+) Wakatakakage is also the 3rd makuuchi champion from Fukushima pref. after Tokitsuyama and Tochiazuma I

    Haru 2022 Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    Now it is certain that Wakatakakage will finish this basho as at least a runner-up, so I queried the SumoDB to find how many achieved it in their Sekiwake debuts. 12 rikishi did and only Futabayama had finished with a yusho. For 9 of them it was part of their successful Ozeki runs (*I'm not sure about Kagamisato, he did make Ozeki 3 basho later). So I'm excited about Wakatakakage's performance tomorrow and in Natsu basho

    First I did this, then this. There seem to be quite a lot of rikishi. I only looked into the first few (Kotokanyu, Hakuryo, Kizenryu, Tochitenko have been ms10-ms1)

    Last time a maegashira won his first 10 bouts was Homasho in Nagoya 2010. Takayasu is ranked higher than most of them as you can see here

    Haru 2022 Discussion Thread (SPOILERS!)

    Although he lost today, it's nice to see that Hoshoryu became one of 12 men who beat an ozeki in their first 4 meetings while being ranked at M-S (not Hakuho who had had 2 wins over Sekiwake Tochiazuma. Edit: And not Kotozakura either, as one of the win was fusen. So 12 men in total) • And with wins more than 4: Akinoshima (7-0) Konishiki, Toyonoshima (5-0) Chiyotaikai, Terunofuji (5-0) Asanoyama

    Today in juryo division, Kaisho beat Kaisei after about a minute of good ai-yotsu stall. The reason I mention them is that they were heyamates for a short time in Tomozuna beya before Kaio branched out and took Kaisho with him. Must be a rare occurence that someone faces his former heyamate (Akinomaki predicted a Tomokaze x Yago match might happen too) Edit: And oh yeah, it must've happened more regularly in lower divisions, now that I think of it
