Were my ears betraying me, or was the last maezumo bout of the Heisei era between two of the Asahiyama-beya recruits, Kitajima and Ikegame??

Yamamoto and Yamamotozakura were both absent from the final session and the niban shussehiro due to illness, a fever in Yamamoto's case.


Brief notes about a few of the recruits:

Iizuka has baseball experience only. His sister is an enka singer and knows fellow Ibaraki native Takayasu, through her Iizuka was introduced to Taognoura-beya and decided to give it a try.

Ikegame has sumo experience from his time at Maebashi Daigo junior high school in Gunma. At some point he was interviewed by the local press, Asahiyama-oyakata saw the resulting article during a Takasaki jungyo event and recruited him.

Kitajima has a year of wrestling experience, his coach suggested he try sumo.

Yatabe has baseball and judo experience, he was featured in an Asahi article last year.

Maruyama was on the volleyball team during high school, while Shioya has judo experience.

Fukui has some sumo experience from elementary school.


And finally, I expect two more gyoji to debut in the Natsu basho, the two young guys a few rows back were regulars here.

It's getting difficult to ensure enough new recruits, heya even use the internet for that. One big reason: it got difficult to attract middle school graduates. With declining birth rates, many parents do everything to have the kids go to university. 1992 had 223 new recruits - the most of the Heisei era - since 2006 the number is double digits.

The ichiban-shusse of Haru 1993 had more on the dohyo than the whole maezumo this basho: 47 of the 145 in maezumo that basho (the DB only shows 143) - plus 1 sai-shusse reentry rikishi not again presented. Those with 3-0 or 3-1 made the ichiban shusse  then, on day 5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNX71bw76no

I would very much like to point out that both Haru 1993 and Haru 2019 have exactly 20 recruits at 18 years or older. The huge difference is completely among those younger than 18 years.

@AsashosakariDumb question... I have added day 2 to day 5 results to the database now, the basho scores also are as of day 5. Are day 6 to day 9 summaries planned?

Geez...I collected the data shortly after senshuraku and then promptly got sidetracked enough to forget to actually post it. Sorry about that. :-S

Day 9 / Group B

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svkL9R3X8jI

Ikegame back in, Yamamoto x2 (regular and -zakura...what are the odds?) both absent from the final round.

Results:

Mz10  Wakatoriumi (1-3)       Mz1   Ryuga (2-3)
Mz20  Numano (1-4)            Mz25  Iizuka (2-3)
Mz34  Ikegame (1-2-1)         Mz29  Hashimoto (2-2)

Mz10  Wakatoriumi (1-4)       Mz20  Numano (2-4)
Mz34  Ikegame (1-3-1)         Mz33  Kitajima (1-3)

As Yubinhaad mentioned at the time, they managed to have an accidental do-beya matchup between Ikegame and Kitajima as they tried to be a bit too cute essentially turning the 7 available rikishi into a two-round tournament (three matches + bye, and then the three losers together with the bye'd rikishi). Yikes.

Final standings:

2-win target achieved:
#02  Mz12  Oba             Otake        2-0
#04  Mz5   Matsuo          Futagoyama   2-0
#06  Mz19  Yanagida        Musashigawa  2-0
#08  Mz31  Yabugasaki      Yamahibiki   2-0
#10  Mz37  Toma            Miyagino     2-0
#12  Mz4   Denuma          Futagoyama   2-1
#14  Mz32  Yagi            Yamahibiki   2-1
#16  Mz39  Andozakura      Shikihide    2-1
---
#18  Mz13  Hamasaki        Otake        2-1
#20  Mz21  Kotoegashira    Sadogatake   2-1
#22  Mz18  Asahabataki     Takasago     2-2
#24  Mz1   Ryuga           Nishikido    2-3
#26  Mz25  Iizuka          Tagonoura    2-3
#28  Mz29  Hashimoto       Tamanoi      2-2
#30  Mz20  Numano          Musashigawa  2-4

Remaining order:
#34  Mz10  Wakatoriumi     Nishiiwa     1-4
#35  Mz34  Ikegame         Asahiyama    1-3-1
#37  Mz7   Yamamoto        Asahiyama    1-2-1
#38  Mz33  Kitajima        Asahiyama    1-3
#41  Mz40  Yamamotozakura  Shikihide    0-3-1

The strange Day 5 flip in the presentation order of Yagi and Andozakura didn't remain the only oddity - normally rikishi in the remainder who missed days get shuffled to the bottom of their section, but no such thing happened with Ikegame and Yamamoto here, to Kitajima's detriment. Either they forgot about it or this unwritten rule has been quietly scrapped after more than a decade.

The order is confirmed, including the two Yamamotos who missed the second presentation, although my usual source Sanspo didn't bother to post the niban press release this time for some reason. Luckily there was Jiji as a backup, which I normally try to avoid relying on as they list returning rikishi separately, not in the overall rikishi order. Fortunately returnee Ryuga managed to get his 2 wins, so we have the actual bout order as evidence of his placement.
