Asagi are one of the original types of Koi. This is evident with their coloration, red and blue/grey. When looking at an Asagi, the red (hi) should be even on both sides and the grey scales shouldn't have any flaws.
The Asagi Coloration:
The Asagi grey pattern almost looks like real metal armor. It is called a net pattern. It will darken if you have hard water. If you have hard water, try to look for one that is lighter than usual.
