    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...

    This meme is probably really funny, but since I'm kinda slow I don't recognize those people. Care to enlighten us?

    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!

    What rikishi do you miss the most?

    Kaio, and Toki for the sideburns.

    Aki Basho 2018 Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I'm pretty sure you are right Mr. Gunning. If I knew all the behind the scenes stuff you know, I'm afraid my interest in Sumo might suffer... There's a reason why I refuse to watch documentaries about industrial chicken farming, I still love my Chicken McNuggets.

    Tochinoshin returns to Georgia

    He’s probably using his skills in «expert analysis» right now to show how this picture is proof of bias against foreign rikishi.
