Disclaimer/introduction for new players The Wall: If a sumotori gets his first makekoshi (MK = losing record) in that respective division, it's called "hitting the wall" (KK = winning record, means missing the wall, which is a good thing). For makuuchi this basho it's Kotoshoho (still), Akua and newbie Midorifuji. In juryo we have Oho (ex-Naya) and Tohakuryu (ex-Shiraishi).  Promotion/demotion/kadoban/intai: Asanoyama and Shodai had to drop out injured last basho. They are kadoban and will be demoted to Sekiwake in case of an MK. Shodai shares the same fate as Takakeisho and Tochinoshin, kyujo at Ozeki-debut. But will he be insta-demoted like Takakeisho, or will he bounce back like Tochi?  Terunofuji is on his 2nd Ozeki run. If he perseveres, he will make history. He will be the one who dropped the furthest from Ozeki (jd48w) and made it back to Ozeki. It's pretty impropable anyone will break that record until the end of life, the universe and everything. Guess the colour of the giant macaron: One of the prices for the yusho winner is a giant fake macaron (as placeholder for a load of real, normal sized macarons from one of the best Pâtisseries in Paris). The colour varies and it has become a popular game to guess it.
