Made in Abyss: Sumo season is at full speed, even with COVID restrictions at some places. Because of these restrictions and guidelines of COVID-19, many Sumo got disqualified for breaching the guidelines and playing golf in a different prefecture.
So in yesterday’s match, a 28-year-old Sumo Shodai Naoya won three consecutive games during the Autumn tournament at Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo.
Sanspo, the Sankei Shimbun sports website, reported that Naoya is a big and self-professed anime fan. He also says that he was really enjoying Made in Abyss and cried while watching the series. Naoya also says that the anime wasn’t the only thing that made them cry but it was Shodai’s fighting spirit that made each one of them emotional.
He says that he forcibly showed it to his fellow wrestlers in the room, and they also cried at the same scene at which he cried. Well, the image of every Sumo wrestler crying at Made in Abyss is an interesting image.
