March banzuke is out (since yesterday). Haru basho is starting in 2 weeks - this time in Tokyo instead of Osaka due to corona precautions making it easier to organise at home. here's also Chris Gould's video on it (imo the best gaijin to follow for information on sumo in english) if you prefer an introduction with a little bit of commentary to just tables a short recap: - Kakuryu seems to be in good form, so he can squeeze another good result as yokozuna before retiring? - Hakuho had corona in January, he looks solid enough to fight but not solid enough to excel. not clear if he won't just bail out the last moment - Takakeisho had a disastrous last basho. He has to win 10 to keep ozeki rank. - Terunofuji still sekiwake but he's probably earning ozeki promotion this tournament if nothing goes wrong. - can Asanoyama start a run for yokozuna? (imo, not likely - but he was runner-up in January and with a champion title this time he might be near) - if you like watching manlet sumo: look out for: Midorifuji (the katasukashi master: grab his shoulder and push him down), Tobizaru, Kotoeko, Terutsuyoshi; Enho and Ishiura are in 2nd division this time though - Hoshoryu continues slowly climbing. Can he become a yokozuna like his uncle Asashoryu was? He's a mongol so he certainly has the chadvantage here :DDD - Tochinoshin is still somewhere in the middle of top division. His knee and shoulder are fucked though and I don't think he'll be back at the top ever. There's a bunch more promising young names a bit further down in 3rd division; otherwise sumo ranks seem a bit depleted these times. A lot of old rikishi past their peak and a lot of middle aged rikishi clearly not good enough to challenge the top. Sad! ろるす玉ねぎ?

So uh since it ended yesterday here's short recap what happened: Terunofuji won. Takayasu choked. Takakeisho steady. Kakuryu retired after hurting himself during training already. Hakuho pulled out after two days due to knee problems, but didn't announce retirement yet.
