Too bad there are no scans of this, not much to discuss from raws, sumo is oddly a rare central theme in manga while I think it should get as much expousure as martial arts do in many series, granted martial arts are westernized to a bigger extent.
I was looking for a TL for this series, but I couldn't find anyone. I was willing to do the rest too.
I read the chapter you have posted, it was quite interesting. I have never read a "sumo" manga before. Kinda funny seeing all these fat and "almost" naked guys wrestling each other.
Edit: Try finding the Japanese names of the cast as the Chinese names in the scan may vary from the original ones. I'll try to translate the manga but please search for the Japanese scan to insert the characters' names. So far, I only know the main cast. lol

Can you find the romanji names for characters, school names and places?
the school name is Oodachi High School! (ダチ高)
the manager's name ( fat guy) : 「小関信也」 ( Shinya Ozeki ? or Shinya koseki)
The delinquent guy seem to be called 五條ユーマ ( Goyo Yuma ) (not sur about this one )
For those who have already read the twelve chapter :

Cool! This series has 13 chapters already? Oh... I thought it's new. hehe..
For the names, they should be alright. Ozeki is the sumo manager's nickname. I'll use this name for him since the students in the school also call him by that nickname.
But our deal is only for chapter 1 or the oneshot
Have you read them all?
I reckon this series would have helped to promote sumo sport in Japan, particularly the youngsters since its focus is on high school students? haha
i read most of them
i heard that wrestling is quite popular in japan, but we don't know about the popularity of this serie beside its ranking in the Jump
We discussed about that in Manga news forum (WSJ)
if this is true, then they will be a lot of fat & semi-naked youngster in the school.Quote:

These delinquents remind me of those in GTO.
This boy (Hinomaru) really has the sportman's spirit. I like it!
This manga needs ugently to be scanlated. I mean, is always in top of rankings of Shonen Jump and is very popular. How hasn't any scanlation group tried to scanlate at least chapter 1?
Nop, We have plenty of time (Unless someone else doing it )Quote:
For Characters Names, i found something else if what i said earlier is false : http://www.shonenjump.com/j/sp_hinomaru/_sp/ ( at the bottom there is a presentation of the characters)
Some pics from the shonen website and the official twitter of the serie :
