UNFAMILIAR FACE

While it may seem like Japanese top view ranchu are scrutinized by breeders for their physical appearance, in reality it is all about their overall presence, character and grace. This in my opinion, is one of the fascinating things about the ranchu, where form and function is one. Contrary to their chubby look, they are powerful but elegant swimmers, agile on turns. It is almost hypnotic to watch them swim through the water and I find it calming and meditative.      

Created to be admired from above, Japanese top view ranchu are not often shown from their side. Yet, when they are, their appearance is alluring. Quality ranchu must look as good from its side as it looks from the top.

Below are two photos of my nisai male ranchu taken from the side.
