Kensho Natsu 2019

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

No surprise - Takakeisho is top in fixed kensho on his bouts, considerably more than at his home basho last time: 340 (after 250 - last year Hatsu he had 58), 2nd is Takayasu with 146, than Goeido with 121. Kise had more than 300 as yokozuna, but never before an ozeki. Hakuho had 65 - those numbers were canceled to leave 2150 total applied kensho so far - originally only slightly less than the 2234 applications last Natsu.

Fix for the last bouts of each day are 382 kensho.

Only Yokozuna competing not mentioned.  Typical for Kakuryu unfortunately; no one seems to like him.

Hakuho also had basho with more than 300 applications, the record has Kisenosato with 608 for Natsu 2017 - when he dropped out after day 10 with 6 wins.

The day 1 bout Takakeisho-Endo has 40 kensho (plus maybe the Morinaga-sho) - very rare for a simple ozeki bout (but with Endo) http://www.zakzak.co.jp/spo/news/190511/spo1905110010-n1.html

As expected: more for Takakeisho than for the final yokozuna bout: 41 with the Morinaga-sho. Kakuryu every day has the last bout, but may have to win all to finish top.

Day 1

41:    Takakeisho
36:    Kakuryu
18:    Goeido
18:    Kotoshogiku
8:    Tochinoshin
7:    Ryuden
5:    Abi
3:    Shohozan
2:    Shodai
2:    Chiyomaru
2:    Enho

Not sure if the numbers are correct because since they didn't always show the banners on screen I couldn't always count but I believe Juryo Toyonoshima, Daishoho, Terutsuyoshi, Yago, Asanoyama, Takarafuji and Daieisho all had 1. Aoyama and Tomokaze won but didn't get any.

Shin nyumaku Enho gave the kensho he won today to his mom Yumiko as a present for mother's day. She was at the Kokugikan to cheer for her son for his debut.

Took the words out of my mouth!  I thought to myself "Wow, even the short rishiki are tall."

No news about the first withdrawal, of the day 9 kensho for Takakenisho-Tochinoshin, 11 were canceled and 14 redistributed to other bouts http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/20190520/sum19052016260009-n1.html

- and the 100% sure Morinaga-sho went to Goeido-Abi instead. I filmed the kensho parades for the last 5 bouts (I regret I hadn't started to film them earlier from the excellent view I had) and post them when I have edited them - together with my list of initial kensho I can check where else than the final bout the Tkksho did go.

I try to count every day with what I can see on screen, but it's not always easy. I can send you my list from that dayif you want ? don't know if it helps ?

Thanks for the offer, but I have to check the videos myself anyway - to see which sponsor's kensho went where

Wow really ? that's impressive you are doing it with much more detail than me. Are you doing it every day ? and if so how do you do when the banners are not shown on screen ? do you look other sources ?

Abema TV tends to keep their camera(s) on the ring, and thus provides a better source than NHK for following kensho parades.  However, even with Abema, there is no guarantee you will be able to catch everything (especially if they break away for an interview or CMs).
