All 7 passed the basic tests.
Adachi at 178cm, 156kg. 2 years high school juniour to Ichinojo, whom he wants to meet quickly on the dohyo: "1 year to makushita, 2 to juryo" is his desire. His planned shikona is Inabajo 因幡城 - same Tottori Johoku -jo of course, Inaba is an old province name, part of now Tottori.

3 years in a row wampaku yokozuna, now Saitama Sakae high 3rd year Yamamoto is another, 18y, 180cm, 171kg.
He wants to become like measuring Tamanoi-oyakata, so this must be the heya he enters.

Another one is Horiuchi, 19, from Nara pref. for Tamanoi-beya, former power lifting high school champion.

No more chanko for him, then.

Horiuchi admired rikishi since he was a small child. He quit university and just made the 167 cm limit, wanting to learn many techniques (in other words no real sumo experience).

Yamamoto is indeed for Tamanoi-beya. He had a grave right knee injury in his first year at Saitama Sakae high and was sidelined for quite a while.

Fittingly, Adachi's first name is Jou, but not the same as in Inabajou, his confirmed new shikona (if he passes the medical of course). He was 6-1 in all at the Kokutai.

Presentation:

Order:

Ohata (Tokitsukaze-beya)

Sachiazuma (Tamanoi-beya, returnee)

Yamamoto (Tamanoi-beya)

Suga (Tamanoi-beya)

Inabajo 因幡城 (Adachi, Sakaigawa-beya)

Minei (Shikihide-beya)

Ichinohe (Arashio-beya)

Not the most auspicious start for Inabajo. Only fifth place?

Mz6 Yamamoto (1-0) Mz4 Minei (0-1)

Mz7 Suga (0-1) Mz8 Adachi (1-0)

Mz9 Ichinohe (1-0) Mz2 Kawamoto (0-2)

---

Day 4:

Mz5 Horiuchi (1-1) Mz2 Kawamoto (0-3)

Mz7 Suga (1-1) Mz4 Minei (0-2)

Mz1 Sachiazuma (1-1) Mz3 Ohata (2-0)

Mz6 Yamamoto (2-0) Mz8 Adachi (1-1)

Mz1 Sachiazuma (2-1) Mz9 Ichinohe (1-1)

---

Day 5:

Mz4 Minei (0-3) Mz2 Kawamoto (1-3)

Mz5 Horiuchi (1-2) Mz8 Adachi (2-1)

Mz7 Suga (2-1) Mz9 Ichinohe (1-2)

Mz1 Sachiazuma (2-2) Mz4 Minei (1-3)

Mz6 Yamamoto (2-1) Mz3 Ohata (3-0)

---

Day 6:

Mz1 Sachiazuma (3-2) Mz2 Kawamoto (1-4)

Mz5 Horiuchi (1-3) Mz4 Minei (2-3)

Mz6 Yamamoto (3-1) Mz8 Adachi (2-2)

Mz7 Suga (3-1) Mz9 Ichinohe (1-3)

Final standings:

#1 Mz3 Ohata Tokitsukaze 3-0

#2 Mz1 Sachiazuma Tamanoi 3-2

#3 Mz6 Yamamoto Tamanoi 3-1

#4 Mz7 Suga Tamanoi 3-1

#5 Mz8 Adachi Sakaigawa 3-2

--

#6 Mz4 Minei Shikihide 2-4

#7 Mz9 Ichinohe Arashio 1-3 (won on Day 3)

#8 Mz5 Horiuchi Tamanoi 1-3 (won on Day 4)

#9 Mz2 Kawamoto Miyagino 1-4 (won on Day 5)

Concluding thoughts: Ohata looked decent for a high-schooler, Sachiazuma is either extremely hesitant post-injury or not nearly recovered yet, Yamamoto looks like his primary skill is his size, semi-hyped Adachi tried to play tachiai games in freakin' maezumo and got overwhelmed twice by that mainly-just-big guy, Minei is a typical Shikihide recruit in that he's very eager but kinda clueless-looking, and Ichinohe may very well be the most uncoordinated deshi I've ever seen. Oh, and no winless competitors for the first time since Aki 2012.
