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). This basho we have none in makuuchi. In Juryo we have newly promoted Asanowaka and Hiradoumi. Hokuseiho was promoted before Aki basho, but had to sit out due to the corona situation. Again. So far he has a zensho yusho in all 4 lower divisions on his scoreboard and lost only 3 of his 42 bouts. Promotion/demotion/kadoban/intai: An Ozeki winning less then 8 bouts is set on the kadoban status. If he doesn't score 8 wins the following basho, he is demoted to Sekiwake. Both current Ozeki scored 8 wins last basho, so no kadoban watch. But will they manage 8 wins again? Guess the colour of the giant macaron: One of the prizes for the yusho winner is a giant fake macaron (as placeholder for a load of real, normal sized macarons from one of the best P√Ętisseries in Paris). The colour varies and it has become a popular game to guess it.
