It centers on the traditional Japanese martial art of sumo and follows the story of high school students who are sumo-wrestling and who have exceptional talent.
The main character, Hinomaru Ushio, is attending Oodachi High School and is part of its sumo club, where he works towards his goal of gaining the title of ‘Yokozuna’- the highest rank in the world of professional sumo wrestling. Hinomaru is a rather tiny person and not very heavy, which might be a problem since sumo wrestlers normally are big and heavy.
Original manga by Kawada, currently being serialized in Shueisha’s Shonen Jump. It started serialization in 2014.
