New recruits Haru 2022

Following the 3 Onami brothers and his older brother, a new recruit from Fukushima for Araiso-beya: from Fukushima first middle school, Jun Tanji 丹治純 (15, 183cm, 113kg). He had reached the best 16 at the national middle school tournament and won the Fukushima and the Tohoku tournaments. As a small child, like his brother he did rhythmic gymnastics, but because of his big body was recommended to switch to sumo, which he did late in 3rd grade, the father of the Onami brothers was his coach since primary school. "First of all aiming for juryo, I want to solidly gain power."

Local TV sports news praise Tanji as a middle school student with extraordinary strength. His school has no sumo club and he trains with high school students

The delayed Haru shindeshi-kensa will be held on April 4th according to this other article about Mizuno.

The video (VPN needed) on the article page confirms the reading Sho for his first name (I switched the photo above with a better one from the local Kitanihon shimbun)

Mizuno was at the town hall of Asahi town to report this to the mayor. The heya had tried to scout him already when he graduated from Asahi middle school. http://www.chunichi.co.jp/article/431210

Asahi, eh? That's oddly appropriate, in a way.

I assume that means no official numbers until then or have they been published already?

I couldn't find anything online.

Joining Tokiwayama-beya is 15-year-old Raiki Kamitani? (神谷 雷輝) from Osaka city - a pity that he'll miss out on being at his home basho. He follows in the footsteps of his senior Aratakayama, both members of the Higashi Osaka Sumo Dojo. 171cm, 99kg.

His shikona has been announced as Raikisho Ryudo (雷輝勝 隆道,  らいきしょう りゅうどう).

I think the number of applicants is announced a few days before the shindeshi-kensa, but due to the circumstances this time they might just announce it when the rescheduled kensa takes place. I wonder if they've also extended the deadline for applications as a result? So er, in short, I don't know.

Thanks for your reply. 

I thought so too, that numbers might be published around the rescheduled event.

Kanzaki passed the physicals today with 192cm,148kg https://hochi.news/articles/20220221-OHT1T51097.html

Hatsuyama with 192cm,140kg

I guess Hochi had copied the height, the 2 have passed the shindeshi-kensa and Hatsuyama was announced today with 190cm,140kg https://www.jiji.com/jc/article?k=2022031300252

Hatsuyama 羽出山 with the difficult shikona reading (his real name) had his dohyo debut on day 1 and won

Kanzaki starts on day 2

I guess the newly reported ones can thus still be in the shindeshi kensa next Monday, we'll see - except that Kayo is of course definitely a Natsu new recruit

Ryu Hayashi 林琉 will be Hayashiryu 林龍, Rei 林玲 gets the shikona Rinko 林虎 (forest dragon and tiger)

The full shikona of the Hayashi twins were announced: the tiger is Rinko Hirokazu 林虎寛一, the dragon Hayashiryu Kantaro 林龍寛太郎 - for their first name they received the kanji of the one of the oyakata, Hagiwara/Kisenosato/Nishonoseki Yutaka 寛. The 2 join the heya on April 2nd.  http://www.nagano-np.co.jp/articles/91644

They had a farewell event in Okaya city on the 29th, comments to the supporters:

Ryu: "I'll do my best to become yokozuna. Please root for me even more than so far."

Rei: "Aiming for yokozuna, I want to receive a kesho mawashi before my older brother."

The first names are both that of a first born, using ichi/kazu and Taro. Usually with this kind of names, one twin is marked as the 2nd born.

Purely spitballing, but I wonder if the Hayashi twins have some Chinese ancestry. Two-kanji full names in Japan are quite rare, but their names would look completely normal in China or Taiwan. 

Also, for the shikona nerds, this seems to be a fairly rare, if not first-time, occurrence of a stable trademark happening in the shikona given name rather than the shikona itself. It will be interesting to see if Nishonoseki keeps this up, or if he goes with something more traditional like using Kise- as a prefix for future deshi. Thanks to the additional arrivals from Oguruma, Nishonoseki is a rather mixed bag of shikona at present.

Nishonoseki has put together a solid little group of rikishi so far - no one likely to do a speed run to juryo, but some good potential in the mid/long term. Getting the 2 Kaiyo High/Nittaidai recruits also makes him one to watch when it comes to the Daiki Nakamura sweepstakes in another year - Kayo, Takahashi, and Nakamura formed Kaiyo High's 3-man team for 2 years.

35 will be in the main shindeshi-kensa on Monday, Nishonoseki has 4 and is the heya with the most applicants. https://www.sanspo.com/article/20220401-OO4L2ZACTBKJZEUTT6I2MGVZMU/

If my count is correct, this is the same number as last year, with two Sandanme Tsukedashi (may be wrong here and got shindeshi's mixed up) compared to last year's 2. So very parallel

If I got this right, our local news reporters listed 19 of them (including the 2 SdTD qualifiers). So we know about half of them. I guess the other half is mostly about non prospects ?

Fujiseiun, Fujitoshi, and Osanai were some of the last to join of their class, so it's possible that we get some good ones in the class we don't know

One for Sadogatake-beya: Tomoki Funo 布野智希 (15) from Shimane pref. The oyakata scouted him in 5th grade primary school.

The other 2 are not on the list of new recruits for Monday, the application date limit was surely surpassed when the basho started. Other heya with more than 1:

3 Dewanoumi

2 Futagoyama, Sakaigawa, Tagonoura, Nishiiwa, Arashio, Onomatsu, Miyagino
