At DOSUKOI Sumo Salon we explore the sumo world with in-depth analysis and unique stats. This time, Hawaiian legend Musashigawa Oyakata (formerly Musashimaru) joins us for a deep dive into first-time title winners. We go through the data to determine decisive factors and highlight intriguing trends. Along the way, the Oyakata reflects on his first title and we relive the touching story of one rikishi's bond with his mentor. We also count down memorable first-time champions as chosen by viewers.
