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 one bit, but Ushio surprises everyone. Ushio and the small sumo club climbs its way to the top with a goal to reach the highest rank, Hinoshita Kaisan.

Hinomaru Sumo is a good take on a sumo sports anime. The anime has a very good soundtrack and follows the manga well. The only problem this anime deals with is the inconsistency in animation. Obviously there are times where the best animation is less needed but some episodes suffer greatly from very "squishy" animation. Later in the show this problem is fixed and makes for a very entertaining watch. Also, the first op, amazing. The manga is a great read. Unlike a lot of sports themed stories this one goes past "the last high-school tournament arc", and into the professional world. The manga's scope of progression in the lives of the characters is very refreshing.
