Hokutofuji and Asanoyama made it! The fairest decision. Glad they could finally bring themselves to have more than two komusubi.

Let's hope it's some newly-found common sense and not just a single aberration for another 13 years.

Interesting line up. Already eagerly looking forward to this basho. (Applauding...) And always nice to be witnessing unusual phenomen (4 Ks), totally agreeing with ryafuji on this. (Signofapproval...)

Nine shikona changes on this banzuke for rikishi from eight different heya. Kototebakari's change to Kotoshoho was announced along with his promotion, and is the only one among the top three divisions. He has also changed the given name to Yoshinari.

It was only recently that Obana was lamenting the lack of flowers on the banzuke, but now he can cheer for a new one as Koshinishiki changes to Etsunohana. The first kanji is the same as before but with a different reading, that of his hometown Joetsu. He too has changed his given name to Tomoya, which in his case is his real given name.

In Sakaigawa-beya, Obamaumi takes on a more heya-specific shikona, Sadanoryu.

Over in Futagoyama-beya, Morita is the latest to receive a kanji from the shisho (former Ozeki Miyabiyama), in this case it's about as simple as can be as he is now Miyabi.

Three other rikishi also receive their first shikona; Kise-beya's Shioya is now Kisenoumi, the first two kanji obviously those of the heya. Similar story for Fujishima-beya's Ueta, who gets a kanji from the heya and is now Fujinonami. Meanwhile, Tatsunami-beya's Minami is now Zuiko - I'll see if I can find out the context behind that one, as it seems quite unusual.

Few rikishi deserve a change of luck more than oft-injured Mitsuuchi; perhaps his new shikona Tosamidori will provide it. The first two kanji are likely in honour of his home prefecture Kochi, formerly known as Tosa province. He's also changed the given name to Kiyota.

Finally, banzuke returnee Okuniasahi has made the same change as his brother Okunisato did earlier in the year, switching the middle kanji but with no change to the reading.


J13e Kototebakari Toshiki > Kotoshoho Yoshinari (琴勝峰 吉成)
Sd64w Koshinishiki Masatora > Etsunohana Tomoya (越乃花 友弥)
Jd22w Obamaumi > Sadanoryu (佐田の龍)
Jd82w Morita > Miyabi (雅)
Jd83e Shioya > Kisenoumi (木瀬ノ海)
Jd95e Ueta > Fujinonami (藤乃波)
Jd104e Minami > Zuiko (瑞光)
Jk15w Mitsuuchi Kota > Tosamidori Kiyota (土佐緑 清太)
Jk29e Okuniasahi (大国旭 > 大國旭)

Chiyotairyu (M5e 2-13) in front of Ichinojo (M2e 1-4-10). They really do like to punish rikishi who miss most of a tournament these days...

Ura is now at Jonidan 106. If he can't compete in Kyushu, how much lower can he be demoted? There are only three spots lower in Jonidan and 30 in Jonokuchi. Could he end up at the bottom of Jonokuchi? I find it difficult to accept that a rikishi with so much promise can be demoted to such an extremely low level, no matter how severely he has been injured. When he does start to compete again, he has an almost impossible task to climb well up the banzuke again. And even if he successfully reaches much higher ranking,  the possibilty of further injury is always present. :-(

I'm a big fan of Ura's and I wish him well. I'm sure many others feel the way I do.

I suspect it's a matter of having to promote Hokutofuji while Asanoyama had a better rank+record number and was also in the joi, so promoting one and not the other would have been a terrible slight to Asanoyama.  But why then did Asanoyama end up ranked behind Hokutofuji?  If you're going to promote Asanoyama, in what way should be behind Hokutofuji?  Is it simply a matter of "Hokutofuji was decided to be promoted first because we had to promote him, so he got the better spot"?

Before getting sidetracked there about their relative positions, what I meant was that I don't see this as any sign that they're going to make more Komusubi slots than they have to in the future.  I think they are still going to use any means defensible to deny promotion to extra Komusubi slots, but once the floodgates are opened by a KK M1e and no sanyaku demotable to maegashira, they'll promote anyone else that would typically be ahead of that KK M1e.

Happy for Hokutofuji and Asanoyama, unhappy for Abi. And he has another shot (3rd consecutive) for denied promotion, if the others mess up. On the other hand, this is by far the most exciting Ozeki switcheroo in many years. 2, 3, 4 or even 5 Ozeki next basho? Crazy times.

Brilliant. I love when sumo throws something new at us. Yes, it would have been nice to see Abi get similarly rewarded but I suppose they couldn’t bring themselves to make extra slots at both junior sanyaku ranks. Them’s the breaks. Banzuke congestion is a fact of life at the top. Everyone knows there is less room above to move up and into.

I'm showing my inexperience, I was really expecting a third Sekiwake slot. Seemed the prime opportunity, given Abi's good results at Komusubi and opportunity to justify the extra slot as caused by Tochi's demotion. 

 

But yes, stoked they at least rewarded those strong performers in the Maegashira joi!

In defense of the NSK keeping Abi at Komusubi, they've done worse.

Tochinoshin went 10-5 as K1E in Aki 2015 and remained at that rank for the following Kyushu basho, where he posted 7-8.

I hope his nick name is "Tom".

This was actually my GTB prediction. Abi at S1W with Endo and Hoku at K. I knew it was risky but felt it made more sense than 3 Ks, as Tochinoshin is really just there as an add-on given his predicament. Shows how much I know. ;)

Well I feel validated (Laughing...)! I did the same for my first-ever GTB, which I'm assuming went terribly. Huzzah!

6-9 ain't terrible for a first try!

Edit: Give some of the other games a try this basho. We need some new blood. Click on 'intro' here for an explanation:

I dunno, I considered an Abi promotion to be even less likely than an Asanoyama promotion. IMHO they see sekiwake as a significant prize in its own right which shouldn't just be getting handed out left and right. It's not like Abi's 8-7 and 9-6 records against highly depleted fields have made him look like a candidate for The Next Ozeki™ role, so there's really no need to present him as one by making him an extra sekiwake.

Matchup-wise it makes no difference anyway, 3 S + 2/3 K gets scheduled basically the same as 2 S + 3/4 K does.

It's not like Abi's 8-7 and 9-6 records against highly depleted fields have made him look like a candidate for The Next Ozeki™ role, so there's really no need to present him as one by making him an extra sekiwake.

Matchup-wise it makes no difference anyway, 3 S + 2/3 K gets scheduled basically the same as 2 S + 3/4 K does.

Yes, I agree. But the idea of 4 komusubi hadn't even entered my head. I just assumed it would be either 3S or 3K, and I decided to punt on the former. I really didn't expect Asa to be promoted at all.

Oh, well!

Related to the "only Ms1-5 count for promotion now" topic getting fodder elsewhere: Since he's presumably going to be on the next banzuke now either way (intai or only some kind of suspension), they damn well better have dropped Takanofuji to at least Ms6e.

 >:-( Poor Chiyonoumi.

Quite the Kokonoe overload in the makushita-joi, in any case.

One question ¿Takanojufi is still in the business? Has not retired??

Takanofuji's retirement happened after Kyushu Basho banzuke was compiled. (He officially retired on Oct11, the banzuke was completed few days after Aki's senshuraku)
