Koshi-waza or Kaeshi-waza?

The white player initiates the attack, a kind of koshi-waza where he comes in to pick up the opponent but turns in with his hip. The blue player gets lifted up but as he gets rotated in the air, he doesn't just fall to the ground but clearly initiates a counter. Although his back touches the ground first and white actually lands on him, he is in control and rotates white over. Waza-ari for blue.
