    2012 All Japan Grand Champion

    Just got confirmation from Shigeru that Dainichi has won the AJGC again with an 85cm showa of Kokuygo bloodline. This showa beat out a 95cm Sakai kohaku which won reserve GC. Congradulation again to the Dainichi brothers for an amazing koi.

    Congrats Futoshi and Shigeru! Stunner.

    Kohaku 234 finished 2nd.

    Thanks Mark and Steve Gibbins for the live coverage!

    Here is the latest coverage from Mark Gardner's blog with his top five picks. Of course, the Dainichi showa was one of them. I love the quality of his videos. Thanks Mark!

    Congrats to the Dainichi brothers on another GC! Mark posted a picture of this Kokugyo offspring when she was a nisai (?). Who would have imagined that the ugly duckling could turn into such a beautiful swan? Amazing how the breeders could look at a koi and be able to predict her potential years down the road!

    BTW, the attached picture was taken directly from Mark Gardner's blog.

    Hi guys,

    I just came back from the show ground and I have to say: Wow, she remained her beauty from last year and increased in length with 5 centimeter!

    I also just uploaded a blog about the Grand Champion of the 43th All Japan Combined Nishikigoi Show: Dainichi wins Grand Champion on the 43th All Japan Show! | KoiQuestion

    With kindest regards,

    Bram Rohaan

    Comparison of a photo of her John Sprinkle had from last year to this year. A lot of body development over the last year.
