Sumo Reference Updates

Recommended Posts

Since it was just brought up in the juryo promotion thread: Kiribayama's given name needs to be added, it's Tetsuo 鐵雄 てつお. Has been listed since Nagoya 2015 according to my data, so should be correct for his full career.

In addition, Tanakayama's full shusshin since Aki 2018 is Niigata-ken, Itoigawa-shi 新潟県糸魚川市.

Not that it matters but is there a reason Takanoiwa doesn't get a grey box for intai?

The kabu page needs some updating.

1) Takanohana is no longer part of the NSK. 24th Sept 2018 was the date of the thread. The departure was prolonged by a few days due to technicalities. I don't know what you would want to put in.

2) Also, the Takanohana-ichimon is no longer a thing, and all the independent heya went elsewhere.

a) Tatsunami beya moved to Dewanoumi-ichimon 18th Sep 2018

b) Onomatsu, Otake and Chiganoura beyas moved from Takanohana-ichimon to Nishonoseki. Also moving to Nishonoeski are Shikoroyama and Minato beyas. Shikoroyama and Minato were listed under Tokitsukaze despite being independent. 21st Sept 2018.

3) ex-Satoyama is borrowing Sanoyama from November 23rd, 2018

4) At some unidentified point, it seems as though Ikioi has the Kasugayama kabu

5) Kisenosato took up his kabu on Jan 16th 2019

6) Takekaze took up his kabu on Jan 22nd. 

Some dates may be a bit off.

The Tatsunami Ichimon should also be the Isegahama ichimon.

Ito completed 2 years of collegiate sumo at the Tokyo University of Agriculture, before dropping out to turn pro.

Here he is in a tournament last year

I wonder if there are more copies on the net - this site has the DB with the banzuke of Aki 2017 http://client.advantiq.ch/Banzuke.aspx

So when the DB is down again, at least the data up to then can be looked up.

Just like correcting the different versions of "Hama", there are a few kanji variants that could be used to "perfect" the wrestler's names in this database.

Among current wrestlers, for instance:

Taka in "Takayasu" and "Takaryu" and "Takakurayama" and "Takamayama" is:  

Toku in "Tokushoryu" and "Tokushinho" is:  

Saki in "Kizakiumi" and "Yabugasaki" and "Kotourasaki" is:  

Tsuru in "Tsurubayashi" is:  

Da in "Hidano" is:  

There are also variants of "Umi" that Tosanoumi and Tokitsuumi used (current Mihamaumi).

The final records of Hitenryu and Tochikasuga are a bit mixed up - Hitenryu won their Senshuraku bout to finish 6-1, leaving Tochikasuga at 5-2.

In general I'm following the shikona on sumo.or.jp which is the official site after all. Their kanji shikona also are used for matching the rikishi in the banzuke and torikumi grabbers so diverting from the official variation makes for awkward extra coding. I still might make these changes at a later date.

The sumo site may be limited in the kanji it is using.  The sumo reference book (大相撲力士名鑑) (https://www.amazon.co.jp/平成三十一年-2019年-大相撲力士名鑑-「相撲」編集部/dp/4583112033/ref=sr_1_2?__mk_ja_JP=カタカナ&keywords=相撲&qid=1564682897&s=gateway&sr=8-2) and even Abema show the shikona using the kanji described above.
