Kagayaki can't have any complaints really, after seven consecutive make koshi I think he's exhausted the banzuke makers' patience.

Short list of shikona changes for the first banzuke of 2022, just five along with already-announced (and already troubled) shin-Juryo Shiden.

Osuzuki is now Hoshuzan, having been honoured with the -shu kanji from Naruto-oyakata (former Ozeki Kotooshu), which so far he hadn't bestowed on any of his deshi. He also changes the first kanji of his given name, which is now Yoshiharu.

Two rikishi in Sadogatake-beya change from Kotosurname to their first proper shikona. Kotosato is now Kotonofuji, although in fact the last kanji is the same as that of his surname. He has changed the kanji of his given name, but keeps the reading as Shinya.

Meanwhile, Kotomaeda is now Kotokiho. There's a former rikishi called Kihoyama with the same surname and shusshin, perhaps father or uncle? Anyway, Kotokiho changes the second kanji of his given name, which is now Mizuto.

Over in Oguruma-beya, Watanabe gets his first shikona as he continues his second comeback from injury - he is now Akekaze.

Lastly to Tagonoura-beya, where Sekizukayama is now Ojiyama. There's an Oji junior high school, same kanji, in his hometown of Komaki, Aichi prefecture, my guess is that's his alma mater and the shikona was derived from it. He also changes the given name to Nobunaga, perhaps seeking to invoke some warrior spirit from Oda Nobunaga, who was based in Komaki Castle during the sengoku period.


J12e Shiba > Shiden (紫雷,  しでん)
Ms41e Osuzuki Chiharu > Hoshuzan Yoshiharu (峰洲山  善晴,  ほうしゅうざん  よしはる)
Sd41w Kotosato Shinya > Kotonofuji Shinya (琴ノ藤  心哉,  ことのふじ  しんや)
Jd19e Watanabe > Akekaze (朱風,  あけかぜ)
Jd93w Kotomaeda Mizuki > Kotokiho Mizuto (琴紀峰  瑞人,  こときほう  みずと)
Jd98w Sekizukayama Taichi > Ojiyama Nobunaga (応時山  信長,  おうじやま  のぶなが)


Kinbozan's Sandanme yusho resulted in a given name being added to his Kyokai profile: Haruki (晴樹,  はるき).

Kiribayama to M1 seems like a gift. Ichinojo to M2 seems like winning the lottery.

Meisei ahead of Daieisho?!  What is this madness?  Everything else is a matter of taste somewhat, but this is a huge change in protocol.

Daieisho must have offended someone in the banzuke committee at some point because he has a history of getting a raw deal, not that this is the most egregious case of it.

Suspended Asanoyama got off very lightly with a demotion of only 10.5 ranks to J4e. I really thought they would put him a little further down, to avoid him clogging up a spot in the top 5 ranks that tend to comprise the primary promotion challengers, and by the same token to make it more feasible to put him at Ms6e or lower next time (much like Abi got put at Ms16e rather than into the top 15 on his way down). I suppose they could still be harsh with him in the next session and engineer the latter part, but I think I'm now expecting Asanoyama to clog a valuable spot in March.

Ooh, Atamifuji at Ms1w (...)

His previous rank of Ms14w is the second-lowest ever for somebody who scored 6 wins there and then got promoted all the way to Ms1.

For what it's worth, that's where I had him myself.  There just weren't very many people to put in that area of the banzuke.  So yes, he did get off light, but just due to a lack of other people.  I suppose though that it would have been reasonable for them to continue with their "no clogging" trend when they promoted Meisei to Sekiwake, but in that case Meisei was at least a reasonable candidate for Sekiwake with a KK at Komusubi.  In contrast the rikishi right after Asanoyama on the current banzuke really don't deserve to be as high as they are.

Almost all of the demotees across the top two divisions got off lightly this round.  Shohozan got similar treatment to Asanoyama, as did Myogiryu, Chiyonokuni, Akua and Ichinojo in the top division.  But I too thought it surprising that a suspended rikishi would be treated so generously.  Making their return, Abi and Ryuden conversely got no extra bump up the ranks like those surrounding them did.

Is it me, or have the promotees from Juryo been ranked much lower than a by-the-numbers approach would suggest for the last few bashos?  I had Ichiyamamoto at M9w and Wakamotoharu at M10w, which is only slightly generous, but in-line with those who would be surrounding them.  I don't have my predictions for the previous bashos anymore but remember being surprised how low the promotees have landed at least the previous 2 bashos.

The bottom of Makuuchi is very interesting to look at since the bottom 8 slots are filled by the 4 promotees and the 3 longstanding Makuuchi Tochinoshin, Aoiyama and Kaisei trying to stave off demotion.  I wonder if this could be the last basho in the top division for all of them?  Tochinoshin was MK in every basho this year, Aoiyama in 10 of his last 12 (only 2 outstanding performances at 11-4 have saved him so far), and Kaisei in 7 of his last 9.

I think it's been true for a while that treating J1 by the numbers as though it were the next rank in Makuuchi works pretty well for deciding who gets promoted, but not for where to rank them. Presumably because a Juryo fight card is viewed as not as strong as a top-division one.

Ok, no mention in Asashosakari's lead post and everyone's just got on with arguing the toss/bemoaning their GTB entry, so what have I missed?

How come the banzuke was published on a Thursday and not tomorrow on the traditional Monday?

Considering the rikishi-kai was scheduled for 25th, I didn't consider Christmas a factor, but I looked back and the banzuke came out on 23rd last year, so my bad...

I think its more new years holiday timing than anything. After the banzuke releases you have to give some time for the sumo mags to get printed, banzuke sent to koenkai members, etc before everything shuts down.

His rise took him 46 basho to reach the second division, this is the 3rd slowest rise for collegiate wrestlers

That one is extraordinary. Hamanishiki's was at least explained by a need to overpromote after all the match-fixers got kicked out in May 2011.

 Chiyoarashi returns to the juryo division since Nagoya 2012, after a 50 basho absence. This is the new record for slowest return to juryo, breaking the previous record of 39 basho by Hamanishiki

That one is extraordinary. Hamanishiki's was at least explained by a need to overpromote after all the match-fixers got kicked out in May 2011. 

If that is the case, I wonder what the unqualified record is (i.e. no need to overpromote).

According to the topics it was Dewanoshima's 33 basho out of juryo between 1982 and 1988.
