Rikishi Status - 2022 Haru

Recommended Posts

I haven't checked but it feels like a few years since we last had a full complement of sekitori starting a basho, but that's what we have here.

The lower division list was lengthened due to the addition of COVID-kyujo Onoe-beya, which as usual I've listed separately from the 'regular' absentees.


Ms2w Asanoyama
Ms3w Dewanoryu
Ms10e Asashiyu
Ms21w Mineyaiba
Ms29w Kotodaigo
Ms38e Irodori
Ms43w Roman
Ms48e Shinohara
Ms56e Obara
Ms56w Oshoumi

Sd3e Itadaki
Sd28w Anzai
Sd33e Saidaiji
Sd34w Kainishiki (possibly intai)
Sd66w Hagiwara

Jd8e Yamane
Jd25e Kenho
Jd33w Sadanogo
Jd41w Miyakojima
Jd43w Kenshomaru (intai)
Jd52e Fujiizumi
Jd54w Nishihara
Jd59w Shogun
Jd72w Wakaseido
Jd77w Wakayamanaka
Jd85w Nankairaiki
Jd90w Iwata
Jd94w Hitoshi

Jk4w Kato
Jk7w Kotorikisen
Jk8e Wakaonehara
Jk8w Takataisho

Hopefully he's not out the whole 7 days; I'm not quite convinced he's ready to challenge for a salary yet but was looking forward to seeing how he performed at this rank. Would bet he was even more motivated to perform given his heyagashira's Ōzeki promotion.

Assuming this is the result of persisting injuries to both coupled with Naruto-oyakata's readiness to bench his guys when they're not 100%. Ōshōumi seems very injury prone which concerns me since he has shown signs of being able to develop into a very good rikishi. Hagiwara has been out since Day 3 of Kyushu 2021. He was making good progress up the banzuke although at a slower pace than Ōshōumi. Wish the best for both!

Add Sd28w Anzai, who has appeared in heya photos with a knee brace.  All three rose into mid-to-upper Makushita before plunging down.  Now only Oshoma and Oshoryu in Mk.  Heartbreaking.

I forget...what happened to Kagamiou? Age? Injury? COVID?

Might be it for Kyokutaisei. 

Wrong thread to ask but with 4 Makuuchi and 34 Juryo basho does he qualify for a position in a heya? I don't know the requirements off the top of my head, but I have a feeling he does. Provided he wants to of course. 

Edit: to partially answer my own question, seems like the kabu requirement is 30 basho as sekitori (unless it's been updated) so he would qualify for one. Money and willingness are a different question still.

The Tomozuna stock should be available for at least temporary borrowing, but Kaisei may also be in line for that, so his long term future in the NSK isn't necessarily guaranteed.

Yeah, searching the forum a bit it seems Kaisei has acquired Japanese citizenship and has been mentioned in connection with the Tomozuna kabu.

He had it since 2014, I think. And he was one of Kaiki's deshi (Kyokutaisei fought out of the present Oshima stable only because of the closure of the old one under Asahikuni), so if the old shisho Kaiki has any say in who the Tomozuna share goes to, I'd imagine Kaisei is the clear front runner, with his tenure as heyagashira also having to count for something. 

Of course, all this is forum hypothesising...
