Banzuke Sunday!

Its that magical time that sumo fans enjoy, the day that the new banzuke is released. The upcoming Aki basho is now just 2 weeks away, and we eagerly await a tournament with possibly 2 Yokozuna. There is plenty of curiosity around ranking, and who will end up where. So with just a few hours to go, Team Tachiai is waiting for the all important moment the ranking sheet goes live on the Sumo Kyokai’s web site.

Will the upcoming fall tournament be a triumph of domination by the two Yokozuna? Or will we see yet another “Wacky Aki”?

You can join us in the mad refresh fest, by visiting them here:

While you wait, check out lksumo’s ruminations on the Aki banzuke!

    Three Sekiwake, and hard luck for Mitoryu. Kotoeko only falls 7 rungs with a 2-13 in July. Endo fell 10 with one less win. Should Tamawashi actually be higher up?

  2. The Juryo banzuke appears to be uneven, with a blank where J9w should be. What’s that about?
