Dewaminato became Komusubi in 1939 after Yusho at M17.

Interesting that all three M17 yusho were promoted to a different rank.

Au contraire! It would be a miracle if all 3 had hit the same spot. I bet there is NO promotion situation where all promotees hit the same spot. That's what makes games like GTB so much fun.

Onosho only losing 7 ranks with 2 wins

Abi losing 9 ranks with 3 wins...

Obviously a punishment - but he was already punished

It also has to do with where they were ranked initially, as the banzuke puzzle unravels differently and accordingly, but yes, probably punished some more too..

Yes, especially when you look at Abi and Ishiura. 3 Ranks and only 1 win difference.

In 99 (or 100) of 100 cases the higher ranked would stay above the lower one.

And the 2 promotees, Meisei  maybe, but especially Tobizaru would also not pass Abi

Jk31w Kawaguchi > Chiyoresshi (千代烈士)

One of the stranger shikona, only the third rikishi in history using that kanji (according to sumodb).

The English Google translation of 烈士 is "martyr" (both in Chinese and Japanese), which seems an inappropriate thing to call oneself.  But looking at Wikitionary https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/烈士 there seems to be more reasonable translations usable.  I'm not sure what the implications are in Japanese.

I wish he had chosen the shikona Midolari Resifa, so I could listen for Benvolance's head to explode from across the continent.
