Hello Sumo Fans!
Well, as I'm sure you've heard, they SUMO association has decided to cancel the May basho amid the ongoing concerns in Japan about Covid19, and hopefully host the next basho in July, starting July 19th in Tokyo at the Kokugikan instead of Nagoya. That July basho will take place with no fans in the arena just like the Osaka basho in March.
In this video I also discuss the banzuke, that did come out on April 27th, and what to expect in the next basho, as well as news about the channel (Passed 50K subscribers!! Woo-hoo!) and how my man Okinoumi will win the July yusho from the rank of komusubi! :)
