    Retirements after Natsu 2022

    I'm really going to miss Oazuma. He was the first lower division rikishi I gravitated toward when I started watching the full days matches. I thought something was up, as he looked like he'd been cutting weight for a while and playing it much safer. He did have a bad knee, as well. Hopefully @Yubinhaad can unearth some photos of a danpatsu-shiki if he had one. I wish him the best of luck!

    Darn, I did well outside of Mitakeumi. Congrats @Flohru.

    Sandanme Game Natsu 2022 - important change!

    Akinoyama was the MVP. He was a slam dunk pick for me at that rank. I'm surprised (and happy) that no-one else was in on him.

    Sumo Reference Updates

    Count me in as well. I use it almost every day for work and it's worse than ever. I keep a back up loaded up in the WayBack Machine, because it's 50/50 that it's ever available. Surely there's a better place/way to host it, that we can donate towards if need be.

    Hello from MidnightAgent aka MidnightSumo

    Hey there. Welcome! Yeah, this forum has helped immensely when it comes to finding info about lower division favourites. Where else can I find out that Dewanojo has a fondness for cream-filled pastries, or find multiple pictures of Baraki standing on his tip toes to pass the height requirement? Nowhere!

    Hello from MidnightAgent aka MidnightSumo

    Happy to be here! I don't know how active I'll be, but it won't be the last time I post.

    Hello from MidnightAgent aka MidnightSumo

    I figured there had to be a few Karla viewers here. Thanks!

    Hello from MidnightAgent aka MidnightSumo

    Wow, so that means you knew him when he had hair! I'm jealous that you got to see his rise to makushita. His flamingo-like body is both a curse and a blessing. He's a rikishi unlike any other. I hope he can bounce back this time and manage to keep opponents from getting under him.
  10. I've been mostly lurking here, but I want to say hello. I've been following sumo since July 2020, and this forum has helped me catch up on many things I missed. The depth and quantity of good information and discussion here is quite impressive. I watch almost every bout on all 15 days of the ozumo tournaments, in addition to university sumo. I keep detailed notes about many lower-division wrestlers, so this forum is a blessing. I'm particularly a fan of Suzaki, Baraki, and Oazuma (despite his recent downturn). I want to thank Akinomaki, Katooshu and many others for years of reporting on the Grand Sumo recruits and amateur sumo participants. Being able to search up and read about someone's school day accomplishments and initial impressions, even years later, is a joy. We get very little English information about the lower divisions, and sometimes the posts here are the only things I can find. Cheers everybody!

    70th All Japan sumo championships

    Was the full stream not posted anywhere this time? A group of us were pumped to watch it, but it just never went live on the usual channel. Maybe it has something to do with the scandal perhaps? :(
