Kensho for 2017 Natsu

Recommended Posts

Japanese car company Nissan will be featured on kensho banners for the first time this basho, as they celebrate the 60th anniversary of the venerable Skyline series. The banners depict the various generations of the car against an ukiyoe background, as shown in the examples below. The kensho will be specifically placed on the bouts of Kisenosato (provided that he takes part in the basho, of course) and Ura, possibly others as well.

Don't think you're in the wrong thread, the kensho from Core(Co)mics, who gave Kisenosato the Hokuto no ken kesho mawashi set are PR for their new manga app that will publish the Kisenosato story.

Kisenosato not only has a manga kesho mawashi set, he now also gets a manga about himself, working title: "Kisenosato monogatari." To get published after the basho on the manga-app manga-hot and for 3 months in the monthly Comic-Zenon.

Kisenosato has the most kensho again, the only thing to prevent that from now on is an early kyujo announcement. This time 608 fix on his bouts, double that of the most so far for him, 304 last basho, which had doubled the previous best of 166. More than 5 times the number of 2nd most Takayasu with 119, then Hakuho with 112.

Kise's kesho mawashi sponsor Coremics places kensho on his bouts each day, but day 1 is so crowded, they only show the one for the yokozuna with Rao, from day 2 on also the other 2 kensho, but Kise asked them to put those on the bouts of his respective attendants that day.

The sponsors wanted to place close to 70 kensho on Kise's day 1 bout, the NSK asked them to withdraw some to stay inside the extended limit of 60. http://www.asahi.com/articles/ASK5D53R4K5DUTQP01T.html

This time might really see a new kensho record (if Kise stays in the basho): 2219 are placed so far, 10 new sponsors, among them the 2 in the above posts. http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/1822204.html

Frankly it'd be cool if they did this whenever he used that set, but I understand why they don't.

I predict the Kyokai will be raising the limit to 70 if Kisenosato continues to impress.

I can already see the NHK anouncement:

"The 6 o' clock news broadcast will be delayed by 5 minutes due to kensho congestion."

The most kensho won by a rikishi so far at a basho: no 5 is Kakuryu, 8 Kise, the rest Hakuho

sp-kenshou-sy20170513-ogp_0.jpg

http://www.nikkansports.com/battle/sumo/news/1822577.html

Kise has the chance to get to no 1 with the 608 on him and some extra for the last bout and those of his opponents. 166 kensho are fix on the 15 last bouts of the basho, Kise is in there maybe 5 times.

Top 5 in fixed kensho are 608 Kise, 119 Takayasu, but 3 is actually Goeido with 113, Hakuho is 4 with 112 and Ura 5 with 100. http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20170513/sum17051305050005-n4.html Kakuryu and Harumafuji both have 47. http://www.hochi.co.jp/sports/sumo/20170512-OHT1T50261.html  Another of the new sponsors is Nomura securities.

(marathonbet has odds of 2.25 for Hakuho and 2.5 for Kise http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20170513/sum17051305050005-n3.html)

The allowed most for one bout of 61 (50+10extra granted+the Morinaga-sho) happened 4 times so far - on a final day, but this time we might see this even in the middle of the basho. The run of the sponsors on the Kise bouts may lead to a change of rules for them: the NSK wants to leave the limit at 60, but may remove the limit of 5 kensho on one bout by the same sponsor - possible start next Hatsu basho: the sponsors want to be present as much as possible in the Kise bouts. http://www.sponichi.co.jp/sports/news/2017/05/13/kiji/20170512s00005000340000c.html

A sponsor for the 2nd time after Natsu 2 years again is Kindenryu (propagating the Nagoya harp), one each day: on their site they announce the rikishi they place it on, so far for day 1 Endo, 2 Kisenosato, 3 Ura http://info.kindenryu.co.jp/?eid=1329186

For clarification: They don't plan to remove the limit, they plan to lower it, right?

I hoped to have an easy view on the kensho with sponavi, but they put the rikishi information all over the screen just when the banners wander around.

And I thought we'll have the limit already on day 1, but no:

Day 1

54:    Yoshikaze
15:    Endo
14:    Harumafuji
14:    Mitakeumi
13:    Hakuho
13:    Takayasu
12:    Goeido
7:    Ura
5:    Tamawashi
4:    Yutakayama

The will keep the overall limit of 60 kensho for one bout, but may scrap the limit for the sponsors of the number of kensho they can put on one bout, now 5. E.g. Nagatanien then might put 10 kensho on the Kise bout of day 14.

Are you sure? That doesn't really make a whole lot of economic sense, and IMHO that's also not what the article says.

While we didn't see the kensho limit reached for Kise's Day 1 bout, chances are that Yoshikaze's steal of 54 will be enough to see him in the Top Ten when this tournament closes.  Pretty good result for the 35-year-old!  

One has to wonder if other wrestlers are going to cash in on Kise's rough start/injury...

I think you're right, it makes more sense when one sponsor can only put say 3 kensho on a bout so others can have some too. The sageru may be lowering or removing the limit and a lowered limit seemed to me less restrictions, but here it could also mean even stricter limitations.

I assume they gambarized to persuade the sponsors for the 70 kensho of day 1 to distribute them to other days, so hard we even had 5 less than the limit in the end.

I'm confused.  Mitakeumi took home 14 kensho on Day 1.  I watched his Day 2 bout closely, and there were no banners paraded nor did the referee present him with any kensho envelopes, and yet his total went up from 14 to 16.  Is this another sloppy reporting job from NikkanSports?

Same here, there were no listed kensho for the Mitakeumi - Daieisho match yesterday on the torikumi sheet.

I'd never expected to see Yoshikaze ahead of Hakuho each day with the latter being 4-0.

Hakuho is down to the level of Harumafuji - in respect to popularity with the sponsors - and not even with today's win he could catch up with Yoshikaze

69:    Yoshikaze

61 kensho are quite an experience - 4 rounds, and I never heard the kensho announcing gyoji talk so fast: he actually finished while the kensho were still parading around

Day 7

244:    Kisenosato
106:    Hakuho
86:    Harumafuji
76:    Takayasu
76:    Yoshikaze
