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!!

Hinomaruzumou the story of Ushio Hinomaru a sumo wrestler who aims to become a Yokozuna, little in size Hinomaru is the underdog everyone wants to win wanting to prove everyone wrong and with an incredible passion for sumo, hinomaru joins the Oodachi High sumo club and meets his awesome friends together they aim to become the best high school sumo club in the country.

So what makes this manga so good? The character development in my opinion, the character development is amazing every character is likeable and has their own backstory and reason they want to win and be the best. Over all the read more

As this manga is now officially complete and i assume people want to read this because it's finished so the best opportunity to read this series.

Does it reach the heights as the legendary sports manga/anime like Hajime no Ippo, Major, Slam Dunk, Ashita no Joe.... well nope this is a serviceable sports manga however its a fun read.


This is honestly the biggest highlight for me, it damn impressive framing and considering this is drawn in a weekly schedule idk how the author does this amount of detail this ridiculously fast. Thats not really it though, good art is easy to appreciate like read more

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.
