I’m getting on the Asanoyama bandwagon. That was a fairly impressive win against a seemingly game Okinoumi.
On the other hand, the other yama twin, Yutakayama, looks like his second stay in Makuuchi will be just as brief as his first.
Are we seeing the last of Takekaze, whose deep bag of tricks doesn’t seem to be working anymore even this far down the banzuke?
Arawashi–Takanoiwa was a war—possibly the bout of the day.
Ichinojo is a load when he decides to actually do sumo!
After Kotoshogiku failed to take advantage of Shodai’s tachiai, the bulldozer got bulldozed.
Yoshikaze the berserker finally showed up, at least for a day.
Onosho rhymes with yusho. 5-0 vs. all San’yaku opponents, and running out of San’yaku to face (only Tochiozan left after Goeido). How big is Onosho-Goeido on Day 6?
