                  Jason,

                  Thanks for the compliment! This issue was supposed to be the All-Japan issue, but we all know what happened to that show this year. In it's place, the Meiriten was held, and I made the decision to cover it just as I had planned to cover the All-Japan by publishing all the koi that were entered.

                  For next year's All-Japan, I plan to publish all the winners, which while not being all the koi entered in the show, will still take up a similar amount of space.

                  You'll note that this issue is the thickest one ever, and that it wasn't half advertisements. We do plan to seek more sponsorship for the magazine, but will always try and balance it with in-depth material instead of just recycling old articles in order to have something to balance the adverts out. :wink:

                  I'm sure that you'll all enjoy both issues #8 and 9.

                    I cannot thank you enough Brian for Tatsuo Ozawa's article. I have subscribed to various magazines all my koi life in hopes of getting information like this.

                    For those of you struggling to get thru japanese words referred to in the article....hang in there. It's important you learn them, so please don't get discouraged.

                    I also want to take time to thank the advertisers who support Brian's effort. To Maeda-San, Mike Snaden, Carl @ Keirin, ken @ Eastern and the folks at JPD AMERICA. I hope all of the readers will make an effort where possible to support them and let them know that their support for this magazine is appreciated!

                    and to those who wondered who those "foreigners" were in the photo on page 61, That's Joel and Zak from Pan Intercorp. Hey! they should have an ad in here!

                      Dick,

                      I can't begin to express in words how happy your post made me. I also thought this to be an excellent article, and am glad that other folks are getting something out of it. You'll be happy to know that Mr. Ozawa also be doing an Asagi article, in addition to the Hosokai interview. :lol:

                      I'd also like to thank the people that sponsor us by advertising in the magazine, as they help make it all possible. We're always on the look out for new quality sponsors, so please share your thoughts/praise of the magazine with both current and prospective sponsors. :wink:

                        Wow that's great news! I was also really impressed with his most recent tosai article, it taught me much that i did not know. I plan to study and re-study it in hopes that when i eventually do start to collect sanke, i will pick the right ones.

                        After a couple years of trying to pick the best asagi tosai i can find and afford, i am very eager to see what such an expert has to say about it.

                        Will he cover any other varieties in up-coming issues? Koromo maybe? (fingers crossed)

                        All in all i think issue 7 was fantastic. However, ... as much as I think its great to see a non go-sanke on the cover for a change, i fail to see the beauty of this particular kawarimono. Sure its big, but . . . ?

                        Can anyone help see what i am missing in this fish?

                          Hi Matt,

                          It's not so much the beauty of the kawarigoi on the cover, but more the testament to the man that can't seem to find the 1 meter koi that he's looking for. Very nice guy.

                            Would I like something like that swimming in my pond? But if I knew it was 1cm off of being 1 meter then what the hell why not. I also wanted to bring up a good question about how the breeders in Japan are worried about the other asian countries coming up in the production of Nishikigoi. When those countries get down the culling aspect of this hobby then will the Japanese consider them a threat? :?:
