I can't tell if it is metallic or nacreous.  Does it have some scales that sparkle like sequins?  (I think I saw one.)  If so, it is nacreous and you can call it a sakura shubunkin.  Otherwise it is metallic and a comet.    Observe the comet and common tails here.  The tail of a hibuna has rounded lobes.  This fish has a widely forked tail with pointed lobes.  The color is beautiful.

Sharon, I don't see the pointed lobes. This picture here shows pretty round lobes, and what looks like a not very deep fork:
