    Hatsu Basho 2021 Yusho Winner

    My prediction and hope precisely!

    Gagamaru retired

    I'm no expert, but I find it very weird that the merits of Gagamaru's career are discussed. He certainly wasn't a favorite of mine, but the guy had 59 basho as sekitori. 59! And he spent 10 years as a salaried rikishi, that's pretty damn succesful if you ask me. Add to that the added difficulty of coming from a totally different cultural , his achievements command a high level of respect. He also had 1 Jun-Yusho, 2 Kanto-Sho and Kinboshi. Pretty impressive stuff. Perhaps he had the potential to achieve even more, perhaps not. As it stands, his career was great.

    Non-K-November basho 2020 Discussion (spoiler space)

    Extremely happy about Takakeisho's yusho. I might have a different taste in sumo than a lot of others on the forum, I prefer his style over Terunofuji's. In fact, I like more the rikishi who is smaller in stature, compared to behemoths like Terunofuji, Ichinojo or indeed Baruto looking back a bit. Congrats Taka, and good look for your tsuna run!

    I am 100 % sure that Teru beats Taka twice tomorrow. Why? Because I'm rooting very hard for Takakeisho to take the yusho and go on a proper tsuna run. And since my ozumo hopes never comes true, Teru will win.

    FWIV, I'm a big fan of Takakeisho and really hopes he clinches the yusho with a decisive win over Terunofuji. Ideal winning method would be a big, fat henka, but Taka doesn't dabble in those. Teru, on the other hand....

    Amuru intai

    Amuru always seemed like a cool and sympathetic rikishi, who had a good career in ozumo despite many injury setbacks. He always conducted himself well, unlike several of his russian compatriots. Roho especially springs to mind as having a less than ideal behaviour on the dohyo. The only benefit of him and his brother Hakurozan being in ozumo, was the added entertainment of having the user Ossetian Yokozuna on the forums. I wonder what happened to that guy...

    Hatsu 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I feel this is Takakeisho's basho, and that is how it should be. If his injury is healed 100 %, I fully expect him to become the next yokozuna.

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    This is a good thing. He is the slowest rikishi I've ever seen at the tachiai.

    2019 Kyushu Basho Discussion (spoiler alert)

    I'm just happy Konosuke managed to speed up the painfully slow Tsurugisho at the tachiai. The guy takes ages to crouch and get ready, breaking the concentration of the other rikishi. He really is annoying. Another slow one is Meisei. Get on with it already!

    New Takanofuji Scandal

    This is an extremely interesting peek into a world so foreign to my modern western form of life. They navigate by a different moral compass than me, and I feel that me passing judgement on their behaviour would be wrong. Thanks so much for this translation!
