It was renamed "Perseverance" when the ending was updated -- the first version ended on a low note after he ran away, but he came back and persevered. And look at him now!

Ah yes, I remember you told me that in another thread - I still haven't been able to track that version down unfortunately :(

I still can't track down the Perseverance version that @orandashoho mentioned before, but this is the other version with the old ending

Loved the beard, man...a few more inches and you can braid it!

kak is definitely an fine yok, fine numbers, fine technique, fine power and more hinkaku than anyother 21 century's yok.

In Tamawashi v. Hakuho I saw the not unusual Hakuko face slap.

Would a disqualification occur if the about to be slapped 'serendipitously' opened their mouth and angeled their face such that the slapping hand went into their mouth and was 'accidentally' bitten in 'surprise'?

On Kinta's day 2, at 8:13 in the video, the camera pans to an amazing sight of beautiful architecture, and the caption is 'meanwhile, outside my humble castle' :-D

I enjoy those little moments where they show something outside the dojo, related to Japan in general, it really adds to the atmosphere.

Edit*  This is the first time i've watched Sumo properly for about 2 years, and after seeing these first three days i have to say that Endou seems so much stronger than before, there was a lot of hope for him back then and it seems to have born fruit.  Yoshikaze doesn't seem to have the same fire in his belly, or the same nonchalant attitude he once had, and there's lots of new names for me to learn.  I feel like the only thing that hasn't changed is Hakuho, the white bird is as ferocious as ever.  (admittedly i probably shouldn't try to deduce too much form just three days :-D)

Aminishiki is amazing.  To (badly) paraphrase the Sopranos, 'when i was young he was old, now i'm old he's still old, and still winning.

Kotoekou i had never seen before prior to this tournament, his strong determination in each bout puts me in mind of Kitataiki.

YouTube has been poking NattoSumo's channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzZ8v5JF3IyxLWOCGKpcP0g) at me for a while now, and seeing as how he/she's beat Moti to it two days on the trot I've checked it out.

Same NHK-G footage though not quite as sharp as Moti's can be and it lacks his quirky commentary, but it does give a lot of info - so much I have to pause it if I want to take it all in. Worth a look, and not just out of desperation.

I'm still watching Moti's as well, though. :-D

And she/he will be beating me all the way to senshuraku..

I prefer Kintamayama’s videos for their simplicity. The info in the other one is great, but I don’t usually need it personally and the volume of graphics can be a bit much on the eye.
