Greetings Everyone

Greetings All,

I am very new to sumo. I was actually introduced to the sport by a national geographic special that aired in the US in January 2008. Afterwards, I was impressed and curious to learn more about sumo. I just missed the 1st basho of the year, then I learned about the Haru basho. To keep up with what was happening in the Haru basho, I read the comments on this site - a great way to learn the basics. The pictures, the translations and comments were great! (Showing respect...) This is a great site.

After the Haru basho, I am officially hooked as a sumo fan. (Sign of approval...). I am going to figure out a way to get to a tournament or exhibition next.

So far my favorites are only in the sanyaku (??), including, Asashoryu, Hakuho, Kotomitsuki, Kaio, and Ama. (Clapping wildly...)

I am looking forward to the next basho! (Clapping wildly...)

Welcome to the boards Nanami. You will find that your interest in lower ranked rikishi increases as you read more of the forum and contributions from those 'in the know'.
