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!!

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (195/252 eps)
**Spoiler Free**
I normally don’t write reviews for series I’m not overly passionate about, but I feel partially more motivated to at least comment on Hinomaru Zumou; despite its popularity and the recent conclusion of its “Part 1,” the latest review written on MAL only goes up until chapter 25 of the (current) 195 chapters at the time of this review.

If I had to describe how I felt about Hinomaru Zumou in a few words, I would say it’s a sports manga that *almost* gets everything right. If I had to phrase it a little more bluntly though, I’d say it’s a sports manga that ...
