Sanctuary tells the story of Kiyoshi Oze, an outspoken young man who joins the world of professional sumo under the pseudonym Enno. He chose the profession solely for the sake of money.
Kiyoshi Oze is in debt and is in arrears in installments that inevitably has to be repaid. Living in a broken family, he often struggles with violence.
Kiyoshi Oze met master Ensho who was interested in making him a sumo player after seeing his talent and physique. But Oze has absolutely no interest in the sport.
Needing money, Kiyoshi Oze agreed to become a sumo wrestler. Yet he continued to be the target of criticism from sumo executives for his over-the-top personality and brash attitude to the sport’s traditions.

The rest of the cast includes Shioli Kutsuna as Asuka Kunishima, Shioli Kutsuna as Asuka Kunishima, Shota Sometani as Shimizu, Hiroki Sumi as Shizuuchi, Koyuki as Hana and more.
Reasons to Watch Sanctuary
Sanctuary received not so positive reviews. Sports journalist and sumo columnist John Gunning highlighted the series’ lack of correlation to the reality of professional sumo in several scenes.
Despite the negative reviews, Sanctuary is considered quite entertaining. The struggle of Kiyoshi Oze’s character, who initially joined sumo because of money until he finally respects the sport, is also a shame not to be missed.
Sanctuary can be watched on Netflix. You’ve watched it, haven’t you?
