Goueidou and Tochinoshin will not start the jungyo. They may join later. So no Ozeki at the start of the jungyo.

Full kyujo list from the jungyo:

Goueidou, Takayasu, Tochinoshin, Takakeishou, Yoshikaze, Kaisei, Takagenji ( I guess those 10 straight losses had a reason) and Mitoryuu.

left for Mongolia the same day, to relax with the family - the Izutsu-beya okamisan went with him - they return on Friday

Kakuryu returned today - and at once can start to prepare to move to Gifu tomorrow. He spent some time with his parents, his wife and the 2 kids. Seems his wife was only in Japan for the wedding reception and like Tochinoshin he sees wife and kids only during journeys home.

Responsible for the GIfu jungyo is Matsugane (Tamarikido). On the 24th he was at the offices of one promoter for the event, Gifu shimbun - the other is Gifu broadcast. http://www.gifu-np.co.jp/news/20190725/20190725-159203.html

Hakuhou called on Kotonowaka from Juryo and trained with him on day 1 of the Summer Jungyo. "He is as wide as his dad.. He felt heavy," said the Yokozuna. "I didn't think that he would lend his chest to me.. I am deeply grateful," said Kotonowaka. Kakuryuu did some fundamentals dohyo-side and did not enter the ring. "I never had a a Yusho in Nagoya before so that was really good," he said.

Day 1 Gifu

Still Kasugano is the boss. He gives some undisclosed orders about not getting involved with the yakuza, which members of the Yoshimoto kogyo entertainment group (also unknowingly) did and got punished by that agency

With all ozeki absent, Hakuho wants to lead the jungyo - the media had his kawaigari for Kotonowaka in the focus

Today it was Juryo Ichiyamamoto’s turn to be thrown around by Hakuhou. 6 minute session. "His initial charge is a bit high and he seemed a bit fragile but he has heart. Without that you can't become a sekitori," said Hakuhou . (I probably royally screwed that translation - もろさがありそうで芯があった。そうじゃないと関取になれないけどね). "I am honored," said a sandy Ichiyamamoti.

I looked a bit and also means sentimental, easily moved etc... I wonder if he didn't use that meaning and not fragile in that case. The reason I'm thinking that is because he used to connect with the next part of the sentence. I reckon he would have use     instead to mark the opposition you translated as 'he is fragile but he as heart'. I'm not confident about my translation either but it'd become something like 'He seemed to have a lot of emotion and heart. If you are not like this you can't become a sekitori anyway" what do you think ?

You can't expect the list of possible translations shown to be always fitting for the sentence at hand. Neither fragile nor sentimental really covers the case here, but fragile is far better. In such a case I might use some more general word, like weak or immature.

Post liked by the sumo channel on twitter, this is a post from a fan who went to the jungyo and got this autograph from Shikimori Inosuke the highest ranked Gyoji. He takes the time to draw a different gunbai with different kanji for each fan apparently which is pretty cool if you ask me. My boy Konosuke is still the best though.
