Hi Asashosakari,

one question to Seci-Oracle:

is it a mistake that Kitanowaka and Shimazuumi are still listed as "kyujo"

 

Thanks, Pitinosato

According to the rules, any rikishi who misses day one is excluded from the competition.

Every day is some other day's tomorrow...

Seki-Toto:

I'm very late in lauding his achievement, but it just can't go unmentioned: Promoted to the rank of ozeki just recently for the Hatsu 2024 tournament, Kaito proceeded to assert himself in most dominant fashion by winning both the Hatsu and Haru editions of the game with outright victories, as the only player to score 13 and 12 wins respectively. The decision to create the fourth yokozuna in Toto history was inevitable after that, of course. Belated congratulations!

And in fact, it's the very first promotion after back-to-back yusho!

  • Norizo was promoted for Kyushu 2012 after 12-3 D -> 12-3 J,
  • Susanoo was promoted for Kyushu 2018 after 11-4 D -> 13-2 Y, and
  • Pandaazuma was promoted for Hatsu 2020 after 12-3 Y -> 11-4 J.

In other news:

Susanoo performed best among the five continuing ozeki in Haru basho, finishing as one of three 11-4 jun-yusho players behind Kaito. He also had a jun-yusho in January, trailing Kaito by one win there as well. The rest of the ozeki squad had rather unimpressive results, which left three of them at risk of demotion for Natsu basho: Joaoiyama and ScreechingOwl after makekoshi, and Ganzohnesushi after back-to-back 8-7's (under the revised kadoban rules in effect since the start of the year).

Unfortunately with 8 Y/O, the banzuke is effectively limited to the minimum 2 sekiwake and 2 komusubi under the Superbanzuke-mandated maximum of 12 sanyaku spots (for players to retain the appropriate rank bonus points), which I'm only willing to exceed under extreme circumstances. This banzuke came close to such an extreme as it deserved to have 14 players in sanyaku, but two harsh - though not unprecedented - decisions were taken to maintain the standard limit: Unkonoyama dropped from sekiwake to M1e despite 8 wins and Kotononami only moved from M3w to M1w despite 10. Sorry, guys. Additionally Metzinowaka had to stay at komusubi despite 9 wins, which usually would be a promotion to sekiwake.

After M1 the banzuke worked out without any further issues as the rest of the top division had produced fairly balanced results in Haru basho.

Seki-Quadrumvirate:

Haru 2024 proved to be a high-scoring edition of the game, at least for the more accomplished half of the field occupying the makuuchi ranks, who averaged 8.6 wins and consequently had to be downgraded into a more manageable win-loss distribution with 20 KK and 21 MK records. That resulted in a new top division banzuke without any significant issues and typically pretty generous movements.

The Quad high-rankers had entered Haru with quite some baggage including soft kadoban status for Kaito and Golynohana and even hard kadoban for Norizo and Ganzohnesushi, with only Jakusotsu free of demotion worries. However, they performed exceedingly well as a group and even their records after the scoring adjustment were nothing short of impressive with no less than four scores of 10+, led by Norizo's 12-3 -> 11-4 jun-yusho. Just Golynohana cut things close and secured his 9-6 -> 8-7 score only on the final day.

The contenders for a promotion to ozeki didn't do nearly that well; recently demoted Kobashi scored his second straight 8-7 record since dropping down, and Susanoo went MK. The best komusubi record after adjustments was only a single 8-7 as well, which left the door open for somebody else to claim the second sekiwake slot. And M1w Oskanohana duly did so as another jun-yusho performer, jumping past komusubi straight into the third-highest rank. Sanyaku remained steady overall with a 5 O / 2 S / 4 K distribution, and komusubi holdover ScreechingOwl ended up joined by a trio of promotees including Haru yusho winner Athenayama, the only player to achieve a 13-2 -> 12-3 result.

Juryo and makushita scored almost bang-on 50% wins (299-304) altogether, but the first few juryo ranks were closer in performance to the top division results, so with no scoring adjustment happening down there things briefly got rather crowded. A few KK players who might have hoped for a promotion to makuuchi ended up stuck, while some small makekoshi led to outsized demotions.


On a final note: Haru 2024 was the 20-year anniversary of Seki-Quad's first official edition! Many thanks to all players past, present and future.
