Goldfish Warning! (きんぎょ注意報!, Kingyo Chūihō!) is a shōjo manga by Neko Nekobe (猫部ねこ, Nekobe Neko) which ran in Nakayoshi. A 54-episode anime series produced by Toei Animation aired on TV Asahi from January 12, 1991 through February 29, 1992. Each episode of the anime contained two 11-minute stories, often unconnected with each other. A short movie (OVA?) was released in 1992. The anime was made into an anime comic format with six episodes per volume. The first volume was released on July 25, 1991.
After the end of the series, many of the anime's staff moved on to Sailor Moon, including director Junichi Sato and music composer Takanori Arisawa. Many references to Goldfish Warning! are made in Sailor Moon season 1.
A complete DVD set was released on March 24, 2005.
Chitose Fujinomiya, former heiress and currently an orphan, has been kicked out of her super elite school, Tokai no Gakuen (City Academy), and shunned by her former friends. She is sent to a rural public school, Inaka no Chugakko (Country Jr. High School), where even pigs, oxen and chickens are students. The only possession she has left is a pink goldfish named Gyopi, given to her by her beloved father, and very valuable. Her family's attorney attempts to steal Gyopi, but is foiled by Chitose's new schoolmates, namely Wapiko, a simple girl who can outrun almost anything and is well liked in school. As it turns out, Chitose isn't poor; the attorney was merely hiding her inheritance for himself. Instead of going back to the super rich school, she buys the rural school and attempts to transform it into a refined school to compete with that of her rival/former best friend. However, the students of the rural school don't want to be refined.
The blonde sunglesses-wearing love interest of Chitose & her rival Yurika.
There were three Goldfish Warning video games released in Japan. Two titles for the Game Boy, and another for the Super Famicom. Goldfish Warning characters also appear in a few other games such as Panic in Nakayoshi World.
