Nice first chapter, I like the MC. Going to follow it, I think.
 
Btw, why is the title of thread written as "Zumou" and not "Sumo"?

Because that's how it's written in the original title I think. Sumo is the alternative name. 

 

 

@Frozen_Flare this is the series I was talking about before.  Along with My Hero Academia, this is my favorite new WSJ series this year and it only gets better.

Sumo is a real name. They wrote Zumou because of Japanese grammar reason.

Ah, I missed the Furigana. They are pretty well hidden. I thought the regular reading for 相撲 was すまい, not ずまい though?
Not important though.

EDIT: Of course すまう and ずまう

Ok, thanks.

I see. Decent enough pilot, I guess. :)

すもう (Sumō), not すまい (Sumai).

 

With addition of a dakuten on す, it becomes ずもう (Zu mō).

Whoops, sorry.

Yeah, I know. That's why I was wondering about the regular reading... my skill in japanese is pretty bad, as you can see :xD:

Chapter 2: http://bato.to/read/...y_fallen-angels

Good follow up chapter. Yuuma isn't as bad as he appears to be and looks like has some potential for sumo. And Ushio was a beast back in elementary apparently. Wonder why he disappeared in the first place.

Chapter 2: http://bato.to/read/...y_fallen-angels

Good follow up chapter. Yuuma isn't as bad as he appears to be and looks like has some potential for sumo. And Ushio was a beast back in elementary apparently. Wonder why he disappeared in the first place.

My take:

 

Elementary School => Kids are mostly the same size; he can compete on mostly equal grounds.

 

Middle School => Growth spurts; size differences start to appear. Ushio realizes his body wasn't growing at the same rate as others (and would probably settle at the height he has today), is ostracized and gets frustrated, losing his drive little by little. At some point during this, his mother gets sick and passes away, apologizing for his "condition". This gives Ushio a newfound determination, and he starts training like mad, swearing to himself that he'll "show them all" and conquer the High School Sumo world.

 

High School => Present story.

That sounds the most suitable to be what most likely happened. I agree.

Yuuma is also starting to remind me of Jumonji from ES21.

Nice character development for Yuuma. Only a few more chapters till we get that intense showdown between Ushio and Sada.

Obscure auras everywhere. Otherwise, not a bad chapter. I hope Hinomaru gets some interesting bouts with these foreign Yokuzuna in the future (should be a given, I guess).

Chapter 13

 

Great developments and as someone who's read all the way up to the current chapter in Japan, I have to say this chapter was the signal for the first major arc.

Chapter 17

 

The manga has been incredible lately with the recent raw chapters out in Japan as we come to a close on the first major arc.

 

Spoiler Major spoilers

 

This has to get an anime within the next two years that actually manages to match the intensity of the manga.
