I think most people will think this is a bad showa, because no sumi ,the hi is in one piece and there is not enough white ground.

But the reason i like this Showa is because i can see there are submerged sumi, and i guess the sumi will show. And there are sumi at both pectoral fins, so i guess the sumi will be in good quality.

But of course this is a gamble. There is no way for me to be sure that this Showa will become a nice Showa.

I can clearly see it is black based, I too like a Showa with lots of Sumi.
This koi should grow quite big.
I like it.
