      Sadly, you are mistaken, but not by very much and with a pretty good
      The kabuto that Hachirou is wearing is (almost) the exact same design
      as my old (working) kabuto, made by the same armorer within a year of
      mine; the biggest difference (from that angle, at least) is that since
      mine was the beta model, and Hachirou's is a regular production model,
      he has a much nicer hachi (that is the term for the rounded cap on the
      top, right?) - his is bronze, and mine's just stainless steel.
      The other way to tell is he's wearing a red belt, and I was wearing a
      white one :)

      I'll be wearing my snazzy new helmet on the field this year, though
      which might reduce confusion (unless I need to lend out my older helmet
      to another household fighter who's been waiting on his kabuto to be
      delivered ...), especially with my mon in brass on the fukigaeshi.
