Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone on the Forum know how the combination of the crowd-less basho and the ban on social media is affecting the rikishi, especially the younger ones?

I have just been watching day 12 of the basho I have a question.

At the end of Hakuhos loss zabtons  are thrown on to the dohyo. 

Wehere did they come from,when there is no crowd, They dont look real to me,they look computer generated.

The guy from the Natto channel put and effect like this in his videos as a joke when Kakuryu dropped his first Match. He also edited a artificial sounding "whoooo" into the video on one of Terutsuyoshi's Salt throws. 

Nothing beats the Mario jump sound effect @Kintamayama edited in one of Kotoyuki's matches a while back though.

I'm not sure if I can handle an Aoiyama Yusho. Kudos to the big guy, but I'm really not much of a fan.

Terunofuji's knees seemed to be ok today.   He was pushing forward fine against Hakuhozan for an easy win.   That win probably secured his return to Makuuchi rank.   Maybe, Kotoshoho will join him if things finish well for him.  Just 20 years old!

How come day 14 torikumi not released until at least 15.30 JST?

They are probably waiting to see what's what today.

I like that, although I'm worried that it might cause some trouble for the automated games.

I assume they want to see what happens with Aoiyama and the pursuers. If Aoiyama loses and any or all of Hakuho, Kakuryu and Asanoyama win, they can keep the traditional weekend schedule. If Aoiyama wins, he will probably face at least one of them at the weekend.

I knew Takanosho can beat Aoiyama!  He is mathematically alive for the yusho.  Aoiyama is still in good shape for the same.

...as is Mitakeumi. My money is still on Kakuryu, though.

Enho vs Daieisho was the worst torinaoshi call i've ever seen.

Hmm, didn't Enho beat Daeisho twice today?   Great win for the might mouse.

I am still sticking with Hak for the yusho.  Asanoyam, the next Ozeki.

I think the shimpan took pity on the gyoji and didn't want to give him two sashi-chigae in a row on a single tournament day.

Yago vs Daishoho looked like Old Boy sumo.

Hakuho - Aoiyama

Kak - Asa

Mita - Takanosho

 

Nice matches for tomorrow. They could have been nicer with Aoiy

That's almost a freebie for Hak whereas Kak will be facing very motivated Asanoyama.   Advantage goes to Hak for the yusho.   Mitakeumi vs Takanosho should be a good one.

What was the explanation for that? The replay clearly showed Daieisho going out first.

Enho "also lost his form simultaneously", per the (translated) annoucement.
