It is a divine ritual, a martial art, a combat sport—it's sumo!!

A "small" new student, Ushio Hinomaru, appears before the weak little sumo club of Oodachi High School! The words "big" and "heavy" are the rules to this sport, which does not fit this newbie any inch, but this guy goes and does what...!? Ushio and the small sumo club climbs its way to the top!

The goal is Hinoshita Kaisan (a title for the highest rank in professional sumo, equivalent of Yokozuna)!

A fired up high school sumo tale—no retakes allowed!!

Do you know anything about Sumo? Do you like Sumo?

Neither do I. But that doesn't stop this manga from being any less enjoyable to read. The story isn't groundbreaking. It's your standard sports shounen plot, but it's done well. It progresses at a nice pace and keeps it interesting. The characters are where Hinomaru-Zumou really shines. Especially the protagonist. Multidimensional, well-written, likable/interesting, understandable backstory... It's all there, and then some.

If you're looking for a fun new manga to pick up, Hinomaru-Zumou is a pretty good choice.

Awesome title. Let me see... A lot of cool fights without magical powers (until now at least - chapter 13 released this week xD), a truly original theme (sumō), the super nice cliches of boy's manga like friendship, superation, nice hairs even for the manly dudes (shonen jump after all). Totally worth it.

Seeing sumo as a main sport in a manga is original and something really different to see. At first I was a little skeptical because it's Sumo and never really seeing the sport gave me low expectations. However all that changed seeing the main characters and their rivals go at it making it such and interesting story and sport. After seeing many sports in animes and mangas, this one stands out the most having engaging characters and seeing good action with amazing art. It's a good read that never gets boring and always has something exciting going on.

Hinomaru Zumou... The last spokon manga of the Weekly Shônen Jump which has been relatively successful. First of all, I find worthy of admiration that the author Kawada decided to a manga about such a sport as Sumo. I personally don't know nothing but a few things about Sumo. I know it's a very prestigious and ancient sport in Japan, but despite it, it's also a too little popular sport among young people like me, like you, and like the average Shônen Jump reader. Two almost naked fat men almost fighting while grabbing his underwear? Honestly, I understand why is not very popular. In fact, read more
