According to an ancient East Asian tale, there was a school of Koi that swam against a river current. Further into their journey, they reached a waterfall. At the waterfall, many koi gave up and decided to turn around, others decided to try to reach to the top of the waterfall by jumping with no success. After many years passed, one koi was able to ascend to the top of the waterfall. This koi's determination and strength did not go unnoticed by the gods who recognized this achievement and turned the koi into a strong and powerful golden dragon.

About Danitrio Genkai Series:

The owner of Danitrio had called this series of pens "Genkai", meaning "limit" in Japanese. The intent was that this would be the largest pen series of Danitrio and no other pen would be larger than it. Little did he know that later on he would develop a series with an even larger pen called the Yokozuna.
