@Kaitetsu, on the NHK Kanazawa Twitter I found a press conference video that I don't think has been posted:

Ah, thank you. 

I was talking about the heya's gyoji, but thats good to put here.

My apologies, I did not make myself clear.  Thank you for finding that report, it was great seeing Komei get some attention.

While checking out the X feed that had those pictures, I found the video of Oshoumi's get-together at his parents day spa.

Rikishi Kanazawa and Yamane, and Gyoji Komei, were born in 2023; they were the honorees at a special coming-of-age dinner

Born of age?

 

BTW, coming of age in Japan is 18 now since 2022, the festivities are still in transition though

Also, they collected all the people born in 2003.  Is that common in groups like this (vs individual party)?

That's the purpose of Coming of Age Day, all new adults celebrate then. In this transition period, the people from 2004 and 2005 could join in as well. I would have thought the 2003 and 2004 ones celebrated last year, at the first Coming of Age Day after the change of law, but maybe then there was still the Corona effect and nobody thought of that.

People are still not used to celebrate before 20, may it will take a while.

On day 5 of Haru in Jonidan (~Jd20 bouts), Kenta was calling the names -- loud and melodious!

Haru 2024 wrap-up EDIT: Added actual Haru ranks

Another overall disappointing basho for Narutobeya, with some big positive performances.  The heya ends up in the upper 40% win rate like last time, whereas they had a tradition of starting slow and ending up near the top of the list.  7 KK, 5 MK, 2 kyujo.

By division -- shikona, incoming rank, Haru result, estimated Hatsu rank, comment

Juryo

Oshoma, J5w, 8-7, J3 (J4W)   Battled back from 3-6 to get his KK.

Oshoumi, J13w, 8-7, J10 (J11E)  Improved during the basho as usual, no sign of tiring from everyday matches.  Safe for at least another basho, hope for more improvement.

Makushita

Oshoryu, Ms21w, 1-6, Ms45 (Ms47E)

Marusho, Ms35w, 1-6, Sd5 (Sd3E)  They scrapped there way up toward the top of Makushita, but ruined it for at least two basho.

Hoshuozan, Ms54e, 4-3, Ms45 (Ms45W)  Pushing toward his career high Ms34.

Oyamada, Ms58w, 3-4, Sd12 (Sd10E)  So skinny, he has trouble with big guys, but he's a very hard worker.

Sandanme

Murayama, Sd16w, 3-4, Sd30 (Sd28E)  It will be a couple of basho before he can try again to crack Makushita.

Kawamura, Sd17w, 1-2-4, Sd45 (Sd51E)  Injured on day 5, we will see if he can return in two months.

Kanazawa, Sd61w, 5-2, Sd31 (Sd31W)  This will be a career high.

Mukaida, Sd85w, 4-3, Sd66 (Sd68E)  He's alternated 4-3 and 3-4 for awhile now.

Oshozan, Sd87e, 4-3, Sd69 (Sd68W)  He seems to have settled into lower Sandanme for now.

Jonidan

Honma, Jd16w, 4-3, Jd4 (Sd87)  Back on the beam after a disastrous 1-6 last basho.

Mishima, Jd46w, 0-0-7, Jk8 (Jd97W)  Kyujo last 3 basho

Yamane, Jd63e, 3-4 Jd85 (Jd72E)  2nd basho back after missing 10 previous.

Glad to see oshoumi get to KK, I really wish some of those guys had better knees though... Seems to be a chronic issue for the heya

From a fan video of sekitori entering the Kokugikan, it appears the tsukebito for that day were: Oshoumi -- Mukaida; Oshoma - Hoshuozan.

On another day, both Mukaida and Kanazawa came in with Oshoumi.

The oyakata with Oshozan and Kanazawa on the 24th had a Solamachi o-sumo family event, close to the heya. With talk-show

and quiz

This was a more typical basho for Narutobeya: slow start with real improvement at the halfway point.

By division -- shikona, incoming rank, Haru result, estimated Natsu rank, comment

While looking at Oshoumi's parents' day spa やたの湯 on Google Maps, I noticed there are spa and food reviews with entries between three months and one week ago.  So, the hot spring seems to have gotten through the Noto Earthquake OK.

Day 5: Oshozan, Naruto's first deshi and at 24 a vet of 49 basho, won his first two bouts and for his third bout  entered the Darwinian cut-down.  His opponent was 2-0 Anhibiki from Ajigawa, 13-3 in his fourth basho and Jonokuchi Yusho winner.  After being sent back to the tawara, Oshozan began a barrage of shoving and knocked Anhibiki on his butt for an oshitaoshi (or maybe an assitori?)

Natsu 2024 performances - Expected Nagoya rankings

A positive basho for Narutobeya: they were above 50% wins throughout the basho, and more good news than bad news.

By division -- shikona, incoming rank, Natsu result, estimated Nagoya rank, comment

Makuuchi

Oshoma, M14W, 10-5, M7.   A tremendous start in Makuuchi; Fighting Spirit Prize

Juryo

Oshoumi, J13e, 5-10, Ms2.  He looked dinged up; still fighting at the end; back to Makushita.

Makushita

Oshoryu, Ms39e, 2-3-2, Sd1.  Injured on day 7.

Hoshuozan, Ms52w, 3-4, Sd3.  Lost by mawashi techniques last three matches.

Oyamada, Ms59e, 6-1, Ms28. Amazing everyone; this basho’s highlight – komatasukui on day 9.

Sandanme

Murayama, Sd2w, 3-4, Sd16.  Aaand back down again.

Kanazawa, Sd7w, 4-3, Ms57.  KK in 9 of 12 career basho.

Marusho, Sd15w, 4-3, Sd5. Bouncing back up (on way back to Makushita?)

Kawamura, Sd35e, 6-1, Ms53. First time to Makushita for the 22-year-old.

Mukaida, Sd50e, 4-3, Sd32.  A mirror image of his March 2022 tourney.

Oshozan, Sd84w, 5-2, Sd51.  Should be a career high for the longest-serving Naruto rikishi.

Jonidan

Honma, Jd15e, 4-3, Sd85.  Third re-promotion to Sandanme.

Yamane, Jd26e, 3-4, Jd54.

Jonokuchi

 

Mishima, Jk3e, 5-2, Jd55.  First basho back after 4 tournaments out injured.

Karino, Jk13w, 5-2, Jd67.  His first real basho after 5 kyujo at start of his career.

 

Next basho: 1 Makuuchi, 0 Juryo, 4 Makushita, 7 Sandanme, 3 Jonidan, 0 Jonokuchi.

X (Twitter) post from the Senshuraku party.  My guess:

L to R bottom: Tokoyama Tokō, Marusho, Yamane, Oshozan, Murayama, Honma, Oyamada, Kanazawa, Hoshuzan

L to R, top: Kawamura, ?, Mishima, Oshoumi, Naruto, Okamisan, Oshoma, Mukaida, Yobidashi Kenta, Shikimori Komei

Oshoryu was kyujo after day 7; I don't see Karino (did he retire after a 5-2 career?)

The person marked ? isn't Karino [shall I go full conspiracy theory and suggest he looks like Anzai????] Help me out if you can clarify.
