    As the announcers mentioned, this is the third basho in a row Asanoyama has beaten Shonannoumi (and I assume stopped his yusho chances although I haven't checked the previous results). He looked visibly frustrated after losing. It is very funny how the guy has been doing great and getting promoted but Asanoyama's always there to ruin his day Hopefully this keeps going

    Akua actually getting his first win of the basho with the kakenage was nice. Hopefully he kakenage's his way back up to makuuchi (eventually).

    That's a very observant comment. The only comment in my household after an entire day of sumo was "big tits!" in reference to Kotonowaka.
  4. I didn't know they had lifted restrictions in the first place, that is good to see.

    I think that kotenage was the first time Aoiyama impressed me in any way, except for tit size obviously.

    Better Know a Rikishi: Tenryu Genichiro

    Interesting write-up. I did not know the guy who organized the strike in the 30's also used the same shikona as Tenryu. He does strike me as a guy who always does his own thing, as he also left AJPW in 1990 after a disagreement with Giant Baba and apparently said he'd only return after Baba died, which was in fact the case. A legend in Japanese pro wrestling and someone who delivered quality main-event matches well into his 50's, which is usually not the case. As for whether Tenryu actually liked puroresu from the start as it is questioned in the article, I guess it is pretty plausible, especially back in those days when it was way more popular then it is now. Even in one of the recent chanko making videos there were some guys with wrestling merch. I think the intersection between the fanbases is large.

    New recruits Hatsu 2023

    Ahh, ok, now I get it. That makes more sense, actually, as it is a very common pattern for Japanese-Brazilians to have a Brazilian first name (such as Lucas), then a middle name which is actually a first name in Japanese (Kazuo) and then the Japanese last name (Iima).

    As a Brazilian, Lucas is a bigger giveaway that he's Brazilian. And Lima is also a very common surname in Brazil.

    I'm happy Hoshoryu got his gino-sho at least. I was rooting for Takayasu, hopefully he still makes it but I don't have very high hopes at this point.

    I liked Ichinojo vs Meisei. Maybe I'm mistaken but halfway through it seemed as if they were more interested in slapping each other in the face and not really winning or anything, which is my type of sumo. Azumaryu has shown some fire this basho. I hope he gets his long-awaited makuuchi kachi koshi.

    Abema roasting the Waka bros on the replay, first making fun of Wakamotoharu's misstep in the san'yaku ceremony and then complaining Wakatakakage received the arrow the wrong way.

    I think the condition for both is to win today. They probably just forgot to write the 日 kanji in 今日 for Tobizaru.

    Yeah, if a guy gets hurt or old I understand still supporting them, naturally. What surprises me about Shodai's case is that nothing really happened to justify his poor performance. Speaking of being old, I'll be rooting for Tamawashi. But since he's won a tournament before and Takayasu hasn't, I'll be happy either way this time.
