The sanyaku seem to be in good to perfect shape, except Hak'n'Kak®, no kadoban Ozeki. Mitakeumi still on his Ozeki run. 11 wins would give him the mandatory 33 wins over 3 basho. 12 wins would make it impossible to deny him promotion. Kisenosato seems to be a force to be reckoned. If the dynamic duo drops out prematurely, he should be prime candidate for the yusho.

Overall, I'm thinking pretty positive here, I just don't think that Mitakeumi will get 12 and I don't think 11 will be enough with Kise looking like the strongest Yokozuna this basho, if Kak does enter and Mitakeumi does beat him (and Kise) in that 11, well then maybe that'd be another story. Buuuuut I have my doubts even though I do think he will make Ozeki one day, if he goes 11 and loses to other Ozeki and the Yoks then I don't think it'll be enough this time around, he could start another run though :-P

I predict all the promotees hit the wall, Takayasu falls out, Aminishiki returns to makuuchi for Hatsu, Mitakeumi does great but stays put, and, most importantly, the macaron will be blue.

Well, I may have missed my guess for Takanosho, and *nobody* seems to have foreseen what would happen to Mitakeumi; But, it is sweet to revel in the extravagant prestige that attends the man who correctly guesses the color of the macaron!

To be raised up so high, I feel as though I've had too much wine.
