    In the center of the shoulder there is a white area surrounded by Hi. It appears to be a 'pattern window', rather than one being created by fading pigment. However, judges will mark down a fish with windows, particularly one so prominently placed. Hopefully sumi arises in the future and covers it. There are a couple of other areas where the red looks light, but it is difficult to tell if it is uneven or just reflection in the photo. The body shape is nice and the pattern is pleasing.

    Judges are more forgiving of windows on a showa than they are in a kohaku... pray for sumi to fill it anyway. Of course a window is a pattern defect and not as important as conformation, skin and color...
