Curious lists...

Recommended Posts

...didn't we have them once in a while?

Here are two of a potentially big series. I will add one every other day or so.

(The database seems to be down, so forgive me for misspelling one or two of the less well known names [my handwriting is a mess])

List 1:

Taiho

Takanohana I

Zaonishiki

Kakureizan

Ishioka

Nagasawa

Tochitenko

Kinunonami

List 2:

Wajima

Kotokaze

Terao

Oginishiki

Tochifudo

Kumao

No clue about these guys, but while we're talking dubious trivia: which feat has been done exclusively by Aminishiki since 2011 (four times)?

That would have been far more than four times B-)

The following rikishi is the last one that rikishi just above fought for his very last appearance.

And the winner is.... (First prize...)

My next two lists would have been:

Chiyonofuji

Takatoriki

Terao

Oginishiki

Tochifudo

Kumao

And:

Takanohana

Aminishiki

After which suspicion should have risen.

Anyway: Tony is the champion!

Time to solve that, too:

6-9 as M1

Okinoumi

Hmm, they all have at least one kinboshi on their slate, but I can't see any particular pattern...

The last ten Yokozuna gave up their first kinboshi to these rikishi, i.e Onokuni's first kinboshi was won by Takamisugi in 1987 Kyushu, Hokutoumi's first kinboshi was won by Hananoumi in 1988 Hatsu, and so on. I never noticed before that Akinoshima did that twice, from Asahifuji and Musashimaru. Nice list!

How about this one?

Mitsuneyama

Kitanonada

Dewanishiki

Takamiyama

Ozutsu

Akinoshima

Correct! That was indeed what my list was meant to be. Akinoshima's feat was even more impressive when it was 5 yokozuna apart.

As for yours, all of those have a massive amount of kinboshi taken so I assume the topic stays the same. Yet, my first suspicion was incorrect and I'm still working out the possibilities. :-P

EDIT;

I think I'm getting there. Only the last 2 of the list need confirmation. And this is indeed impressive.

Kagamisato (2)

Chiyonoyama

Kitanonada:

Azumafuji

Yoshibayama (2)

(Applauding...) Well done! Actually Dewanishiki's win against Terukuni was a fusen, so no kinboshi there. They all share the record for winning kinboshi from six different Yokozuna.

:-D

Argh! Pity that small mistake took the shine off my whole realization. But still, the list was impressive indeed. Of course it's unthinkable these days, the abundancy of yokozuna 20-30 years ago helped a lot.

Jesse just "had Wajima's number."

Definitely! And thanks to having Wajima's number, his monthly paycheck's number was much higher aswell.

On a side note, I'm getting an idea for a new list. Probably harder.

Shortening this list for names since 2000 (date of achievement);

Hayateumi

Takamisakari

Kokkai

Hakuho (w/ QUADRUPLE extra for good measure)

Kotooshu

Futeno

Ama/Harumafuji

Kisenosato (w/ extra)

Kotoshogiku

Baruto

Toyonoshima

Wakanoho (w/ extra)

Tochiozan

Aran

Okinoumi

Aoiyama

Shohozan

We'll see if anyone can get this right. The list turned out to be full of future stars and failed big hopes.

I've added the info on Hakuho to help a little. :-D

That's a really tough nut. I had several ideas, but all of them wrong...

That sounds a lot like the regular banzuke...

Number of (consecutive) kachi-koshi after joi-jin debut?

Pretty much! Should I say my criteria right away since that's 90% correct or wait a little more?

No-one else replied and interest for this thread is dying, but for the sake of not leaving things incomplete I'll just post what my list was about:

Rikishi who, debuting at M1-M4, managed to KK. Extras being the amount of consecutive KKs afterwards.

In practice, I wanted to see who survived the joijin meatgrinder when first having a taste of it. :-D

Honorable mention goes to Asashoryu. Narrowly missed the criteria as he jumped from M6 straight to sanyaku - even if he did survive it.

The guys at Izutsu-beya didn't even have time to smoke what's left from knitting the hemp and we are already bored to death. Let's have a new edition of nerdy mindfood.

Two lists that follow the same principle and are - each for itself - complete.

Harumafuji

Kaio

Chiyotaikai

Tochiazuma

Baruto

Kotoshogiku

Toyonoshima

Kotoshogiku

Miyabiyama

Kaio

Tamanoshima
