Average Rating

In professional sumo, there are no weight classes. It's a savage sport where the strongest survive, and anyone willing to test their mettle can step into the ring. There is, however, a minimum size requirement to be a pro sumo wrestler, and young Hinomaru Ushio, incredibly talented and hardworking though he may be, does not meet that requirement. This small boy has big dreams of reaching the highest class of sumo, Hinoshita Kaisan. The only way he could possibly go pro is if he becomes the High School Yokozuna, a title given to the strongest wrestler in high school tournaments. Ushio is under a lot of pressure, as well as a time limit. If he can't show off his skills in the high school tournaments, he may lose his chance to go pro permanently, and the odds are stacked against him. Instead of enrolling in Ishigami High, the best school for sumo in Japan, he enrolls in Odachi High and must build a sumo club from the ground up with the one devout member Shinya Ozeki. Odachi High is the true underdog of the sumo world, but Ushio has to push forward with all his strength if he is going to make it professionally.

This made me realize … Sumo is pretty cool :)


One of my favourite shows airing this season, and has the potential for very hype matches. Definitely one to watch if you enjoy sports anime


Never has the sight of sweaty half-naked men slapping eachother been so hype.


If you like sports anime or T H I C C bois this should be right up your alley. Personally I’ll pass on this one.


Forget everything you saw from Rowdy Sumo Wrestler, and watch this. Let the spirit of these manly men radiate on you. Great cast. Epic. 10




All aboard the thicc boi hypetrain.



    Revenge? Nah. I'm too lazy so I will just sit here and let karma fuck your life up
