The full banzuke for Natsu 1983, Nagoya 1983, Kyushu 1983, Hatsu 1984 and Haru 1984 have been added to the database, making the full banzuke complete since Haru 1983.

Thanks to Fay the full division kimarite are complete back to Hatsu 1999. Randomitsuki completed the juryo kimarite back to 1965 and Jakusotsu added more hoshitori tables.

Thanks to Nishinoshima (for getting the data) and Fay (for entering most of it) the career records for about 120 former makuuchi rikishi are complete now. Most of them are not so well known with hatsu dohyo before 1945, but here are some of importance now complete: yokozuna Kagamisato, Yoshibayama, Wakanohana I, Asashio, ozeki Ouchiyama, Kotogahama, Takanohana, Matsunobori, sekiwake Rikidozan, Dewanishiki, Tokitsuyama, Shinobuyama, Kitanonada, Tamanoumi, komusubi Otachi, Wakabayama, Shimizugawa, Kuninobori, Shionishiki, Wakafutase, Kurosegawa.

Also complete is one of the career win leaders with Takamiyama thanks to Ryafuji and ozeki Kirishima from Liliane Fujimori's site. As the full banzuke are complete back to Haru 1983 now, I thought I also mention some now complete rikishi (sanyaku and longtime maegashira) who had their hatsu dohyo between Haru 1983 and Hatsu 1988: ozeki Takanonami, sekiwake Takatoriki, Kotonowaka, Kotonishiki, Tochinowaka, komusubi Oginishiki, Asahiyutaka, Kenko, Naminohana, Tomoefuji and maegashira Kotoryu, Daishi, Minatofuji, Aogiyama, Tokitsunada and Oginohana.

I'm wondering, how do you deal with Mongolian names? The transliteration seems rather inconsistent at times. Sometimes it looks Japanese, sometimes it looks Mongolian.

I don't speak Mongolian, but I can read Cyrillic. Assuming, that the "ын"-ending is not transliterated, and following the BGN/PCGN transliteration (which has the advantage of needing few accents):

Asashoryu: Долгорсүрэн Дагвадорж -> "Dolgursuren Dagvadorj" (you have a "w" instead of "v" in the DB, which seems inconsistent)

Hakuho: Мөнхбатын Даваажаргал -> "M

The full banzuke for Haru 1980, Natsu 1980, Nagoya 1980, Aki 1980, Kyushu 1980, Hatsu 1981, Haru 1981 and Natsu 1981 have been added to the database. Rikishi data like real name, birth date, heya and detailed shusshin have been added for about 120 rikishi. Heights and weights from Haru 1980 have been added for all rikishi.

Rikishi with now complete records include yokozuna Asahifuji, komusubi Daizen, Kyokudozan, maegashira Kotobeppu, Kiraiho, Asahisato, Kasugafuji, Toyonoumi, juryo Umenosato, Mutsuhokkai, Chokairyu, Kiyonofuji and Kotokanyu. These juryo rikishi all had more than 100 basho in Ozumo and especially Kotokanyu had a long career with 154 basho, 12 of them in juryo and 102 in makushita and almost 600 career wins despite such few sekitori basho. Of course it's his own fault that he didn't quite get to 600 wins but that's another topic.

The lower division bouts with kimarite for Aki 1998 have been added, and the other missing bouts from 1998 will follow soon.

Thanks to Fay about 100 new or improved pictures of current lower division rikishi have been added.

The full banzuke for Natsu 1979, Nagoya 1979, Aki 1979, Kyushu 1979 and Hatsu 1980 have been added to the database. Rikishi data like real name, birth date, heya and detailed shusshin have been added for about 80 rikishi. Heights and weights from Natsu 1979 have been added for all rikishi.

Rikishi with now complete records include yokozuna Hokutoumi, Futahaguro, sekiwake Masurao, Kotogaume and komusubi Takanofuji.

The missing lower division bouts from 1998 (Hatsu, Haru and Nagoya) have been added with kimarite, making lower division bouts complete back to Haru 1996. Lower division bouts also have been added for Natsu 1989 and Natsu 1990, leaving 33 basho in Heisei without lower division bouts in the database. Fay added the kimarite for Natsu 1998, making the lower division kimarite complete from Hatsu 1998 until now. I followed the missing kimarite for Furuichi with more interest than for other rikishi and as several kainahineri and a couple zubuneri came up, he is now at a final current count (as his hatsu dohyo was in Haru 1998) of 63 kainahineri and 10 zubuneri wins in his career, the kainahineri easily the most in the database as the next best is 22 kainahineri.

I'm getting nothing but runtime errors at the moment. Is this due to ongoing work or is there a problem?

Unfortunately. the server refuses to tell what the actual error is:

Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error

Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

That's certainly not unfortunately.

The problem seems to be server related as all sumogame.com addresses are affected.

The lower division bouts for Kyushu 1993, Haru 1994, Aki 1994, Kyushu 1994, Haru 1995 and Nagoya 1995 have been added with kimarite. The kimarite have been added for Natsu 1994, Natsu 1995, Haru 1997, Natsu 1997, Nagoya 1997 and Kyushu 1997.

The addition of lower division bouts and kimarite for most basho from Kyushu 1993 until Aki 2001 was possible thanks to the extensive SUMO magazine collection from Rich Pardoe (also known as Gochisozan). Rich made countless scans of the lower division bout sections, enabling me and Fay to enter the bouts and kimarite - about 80,000 kimarite. The database contains more than 400,000 bouts now.

Some big holes in the database have been closed with that, but there still are lower division bouts (and kimarite) missing in the Heisei era (which I'd like to have complete). If you have one of the following SUMO magazines and are willing to help the database, please contact me:

1997 - 10

1996 - 8, 2

1995 - 12, 10, 2

1994 - 8, 2

1993 - 10, 8, 6, 4, 2

1992 - 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2

1991 - 12, 10, 1

1990 - 11, 9, 5, 3, 1

1989 - 11, 9, 5, 3, 1

The bouts with kimarite are available only in even month magazines, and kimarite only have been added since about July 1991. Before that I would like to have the odd month magazines for missing bouts, because here fusen wins and losses are available as the even month magazines just list the bouts without even indicating fusen.

hi,

Nothing important, but I would like to say the birth name of Takaazuma Katsushige (Ms41w) is Cristiano Luiz de Souza ,being Souza his family name, instead of Cristiano Ruiz de Soza as it appears.

By the way, very good website... (Sign of approval...)

More full banzuke and rikishi details have been added, this time all banzuke from Kyushu 1974 to Haru 1979.

Rikishi with now complete records include yokozuna Onokuni, ozeki Wakashimazu, sekiwake Mitoizumi, Sakahoko, Daijuyama, komusubi Kotoinazuma, Takamisugi, Misugisato, Jingaku, Maenoshin, Hananoumi, maegashira Kototsubaki, Takanomine, Saganobori, Hananokuni, Enazakura, Fujinoshin, Sasshunada, Kirinishiki, Koryu, Tochimatoi, Wakasegawa, Kinoarashi, Amanoyama and juryo Dairyu. Of former juryo rikishi only Kotokanyu (591) and Tochitenko (584) have more career wins than Dairyu who has 553 wins.

Another interesting group of rikishi are the six Tongans who joined Asahiyama-beya between Kyushu 1974 and Aki 1975, the father of currently active Minaminoshima among them. The weird thing is the end of their careers - all six left together after Aki 1976, and it really looks like they were literally scratched from the banzuke as the Kyushu 1976 banzuke has six gaps in makushita and sandanme where the Tongans obviously would have been ranked based on their last results. Does anyone know what happened here?

Hi Washuyama, just wanna make you some remarks about your postings:

I understand there's set a limit for attachments by user, mine is only 500K (which I consider quite ridiculous by now) and, as you can see, usually resizes the images to the extent to make them unreadable.

So...

Thanks for that, really great! The photos certainly would also be interesting, likely I can add them to the database as well.

Yes, that's the right way to do, upload pictures somewhere and include them in the post. I just want to add that photobucket and imageshack are blocked here at my place, and probably somewhere else too. A small personal homepage free of cost (just for some webspace) might be a better choice.

Imagevenue's a nice one, too, but doesn't allow hot-linking of full-size pics. (But then, neither will most free webspace, I suspect.)

Thanks for the scans, Washuyama! (Sigh...)

Here are the SW pics from the Tongan article... Also, that same issue of SW has another article about the Asahiyama-beya split (which is referenced in the above Tongan article.

Awesome site. Your stats site, this forum, and the videos on info-forum are the holy trinity of world wide web sumo information.

I was doing some research in the sumo reference database earlier, when I happened to come across this and this.

I'm impressed that Ishida was able to fight 14 times (sometimes 2 times on the same day) and still only get a 5-2 score. Not to talk about Hamaeiko's 6-1 score without entering the dohyo even once. :-D

Jokes aside, I thought it was probably a good idea to inform you of my find.
