I know the torikumi isn't out yet, but we had this discussion several times before: the deadline is the same for senshuraku, so your pick won't count.

Edit: ...and the yusho has been decided already even before we know the final aite. Runner-up shimodahito submitted an impossible pick and co-leader chishafuwaku has the worse 2nd tie-breaker (lower rank).
Welcome, new Yokozuna Sakura! (Applauding...)

Final results:

As mentioned above, the yusho has been decided prematurely. chishafuwaku didn't do anything more wrong than anyone else but gets the short end of a merciless tie-breaker rule. Therefore Sakura wins back to back yusho and earns a truly deserved promotion to yokozuna - omedeto!

Sakura (12-3)
chishafuwaku (12-3)
Jakusotsu (10-5)
Gurowake (10-5)
Gernobono (10-5)
shimodahito (10-5)
kuroimori (10-4-1)
Ryoshishokunin (10-4-1)
orandashoho (9-4-2)
Profomisakari (8-7)
Jejima (6-8-1)
Andonishiki (6-3-6)
WAKATAKE (5-10)
Atenzan (5-3-7)
The Kyokai (3-12)
Tenshinhan (kosho)

Kaisei's aites: 1. Goeido, 2. Ichinojo, 3. Kakuryu, 4. Hakuho, 5. Tochinoshin, 6. Shodai, 7. Mitakeumi, 8. Tamawashi, 9. Abi, 10. Shohozan, 11. Daieisho, 12. Endo, 13. Yutakayama, 14. Kotoshogiku, 15. Chiyotairyu

Comments:
The three existing Yokozunas, Jakusotsu, Kuroimori and Gurowake are to be commended for getting double digit records.  However, it is noted that they all fell short of achieving Ozeki Quality sumo, and it is hoped that they will all strive to go that one little step further next basho.


With back-to-back yushos, Sakura has been promoted to Yokozuna!  Omedetou!  We look forward to reading your acceptance speech.  However, as we now only have one Ozeki, as the lowest ranked Yokozuna (I hope I have got this correct), she will have to step into the role of Yokozuna-Ozeki to meet banzuke making rules.

chishafuwaku will be considered for promotion to Ozeki with a Yusho or good Jun-Yusho in July.

(As ever, I am still considering slightly changing the way that I determine the KK line (and perhaps also the OQ line.).  If I do decide to tweak it (them) a little for the next basho onwards, I will announce it before the day 1 deadline for the July basho.)
