Hinomaruzumou Review


Hinomaru Sumo (Japanese: 火ノ丸相撲, Hepburn: Hinomaru Zumō) is Japanese sumo manga series written and illustrated by Kawada. It was serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine from May 2014 to July 2019, with its chapters collected into 28 tankōbon volumes by Shueisha.
A 24-episode anime television series adaptation by Gonzo aired from October 2018 to March 2019.
On his first day of high school, sumo practitioner Hinomaru Ushio joins Odachi High's sumo club. Despite his short stature (professional sumo has a height requirement of 167 centimeters (5.5 feet)), Hinomaru aims to become the best in high school to force the professional sumo association to let him compete, and then reach the sport's highest rank of yokozuna. However, the club's captain and only other member, third year student Shinya Ozeki, informs him that delinquents have taken over their dojo.
Hinomaru challenges their leader and "strongest" student at the school, Yuma Gojo, to a fight to take back the dojo, and beats him with one hit. Humbled, Yuma also joins the sumo club after being dragged to a practice match by Hinomaru and seeing how strong the wrestlers are. They compete in a local three-man team tournament, but are knocked out by Ishigami High School.
In order to avoid having the club shut down, they recruit two more members during the two-day cultural festival; the national wrestling champion Chihiro Kunisaki, and the small, unathletic Kei Mitsuhashi.
