This is a story about a boy named Ushio Hinomaru whose single goal in life is to be a Yokozuna. Even after having all the skills for greatness, the only hindrance is his small stature. Since he can’t pass the physical test, he needs to be at every school and win the nationals to get a direct scholarship for pros. Thus starts his journey with his new friends at Odachi high school. Hinomaru Sumo Season 2 will continue from here?
Season 1 is all about Ushio and his friend’s training and facing one opponent after another. To win the nationals, Ushio has to defeat Kozu Sosuke, son of the former Yokozuna Yamatokuni. But one by one he and his friends are defeated by this prodigy.
