    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...

    General Corona Banter

    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!

    Great KK for Hokutofuji!

    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.

    Basho Talk Natsu 2018 (SPOILERS)

    Is it just me, or is Kimura Kounosuke a lot more subdued than usual this basho? He usually sounds a lot more assertive and strict, now he sounds kinda tame...

    Women mount dohyo during emergency at jungyo

    Trans-gender issues?? Damn, I never thought of that....

    Women mount dohyo during emergency at jungyo

    Methinks you are taking this issue a bit more seriously than me Kinta.... I haven't really advocated anything. And you are probably correct in everything you write, I'm just not certain allowing women to stand on the dohyo will lead to the total annihilation of all sumo traditions.

    Women mount dohyo during emergency at jungyo

    There is a difference between women and asses...

    Women mount dohyo during emergency at jungyo

    Personally, I don’t see what the big deal is. Just allow women on the dohyo and be done with it. Especially if noone really knows Why this rule is in place anyway.

    Osunaarashi scandal

    Can't say I ever was a fan of the Sandstorm, but this is a really sad ending to his career. Doesn't feel like he deserved to be kicked out.

    What’s up with all this necroposting??

    Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    This basho felt non-competitive in the sense that so many rikishi was kyujo, and when you have the greatest rikishi ever present, the result pretty is pretty much a given. I still follow the lower divisions of course, and ozumo is such a great sport that I'll never be bored with it. But, thing is: I first got into ozumo back in the Eurosport days. My first real memory of watching ozumo on TV, was when Takatoriki got his yusho. It felt like lots of rikishi had a possibility of taking the yusho back then. I was probably wrong, but that's how I felt. Fast forward a few years, and having forgotten about ozumo for some years, I got back into it when my internet access became better. I learned that all the top rikishi I had known were gone, and there was a new sheriff in town: Asashoryu. Since then, Asashoryu, Hakuho and Harumafuji has pretty much ruled over ozumo. And it felt good back in wacky Aki, which was a real open basho where it felt like anything could happen. This basho just felt predecided in a way. I know I'm whingeing, but that is how I feel. Hakuho is the greatest rikishi of all time, but I'll be glad when he quits to be perfectly honest.

    Basho Talk Kyushu 2017 (SPOILERS)

    Boring basho, predictable outcome.
  24. Would not surprise me if this is a correct guess Kinta. Hakuho doesn’t just forget proper manners for a Yokozuna after 39 yusho...
