    This was a different, but interesting, story about a really big guy from Texas who finds himself sort of accidentally training as a sumo wrestler in Japan. I was definitely rooting for the hero, who was very likable, and cringed at some of the training and brutal hazing he was put through. Some parts of the story seemed a bit far-fetched and coincidental, but it was a great underdog story!
