A terrible creature has been plaguing the community: a man with a fishbowl for a head. When he attacks someone, the goldfish leaps out of his bowl and drinks their blood. The victim is irreversibly transformed into a goldfish! This terrible crime has happened to high schooler Kousuke's little sister. With no other option, he takes care of his goldfish-sister as best he can.

One day, he comes across a strange girl named Ringo, who wears a school swimsuit, carries an umbrella, and keeps a gun hanging around her neck. Ringo is an apprentice blood diver, and the gun is her way of shooting herself into the wounds of the fishbowl man's victims. If she can get to them in time, she can prevent them from turning into goldfish. Ringo's mentor, Ichigo, says that she's heard of a way to turn people back from goldfish into humans. Kousuke is determined to help Ringo find a way to help his sister and the loved ones of his friends at school who have met the same fishy fate!

Basically, after you have seen the MAL page for this manga, you have seen it all. Here, you can add it to your Completed list now.

I understand that you don’t believe me, I also wanted it to be a lost gem. And, I guess, fans could easily offer counterarguments. After all there’re clever things in this manga, like using a pervert, whose nose bleeds when he sees a girl in a swimsuit, read more

*I am going to be using the word "weird" many times in this review, and you will see why*

"Chimoguri Ringo to Kingyobachi Otoko" is a weird manga. I don't think anyone will argue against that. The premise is certainly unique, and a weird take on the fantasy genre in which a couple people (a guy and a girl) battle against mysterious creatures in a supernatural setting. In this case, the setting happens to be inside the body of humans who have been "bitten" by the Fishbowl Man and need to be saved before the goldfish toxin takes over their read more
