Matsutarou Sakaguchi is a giant roughneck man with strength far beyond ordinary people. He never uttered words like "work hard," "strive," and "dream" like the typical shounen manga protagonist. However, he is stronger than anyone and peerless in sumo wrestling. His greatest weakness is his own carefree personality. He grows into a full-fledged sumo wrestler.

Ok, so far nobody hasn't made a review of this retro type of anime, well, we all know that its manga version "Notari Matsutarou" was started in the 70's and ended in the late 90's and I can't blame anybody for probably having some lack of interest of anime since it has a rather slow progression and underrated, so I'm gonna give my ratings as to this anime's category, but take note that I'm gonna subject this review for updating on its last episode which right now (9/29/14), so here are my ratings, DOSUKOI!!!!:

Take note that this is an updated review, co'z when I read more

Both are wrestling themed anime and involve a MC who got his butt kick by a bad ass wrestler before getting into the sport. Both MCs have guts to even think about getting into such sport. The MC from one anime is a girl whose honor was ruined by a cocky female wrestler, while the MC in the other anime is a lazy and rowdy tough guy who got owned when he insulted a group of sumo wrestlers. One is based on a WWE diva theme, while the other is more into the traditional Japanese sumo wrestling.
Sumo with scumbags, though it's hard to top Matsutaro.
