Koi always looking weird in any color…
mavegibson, May 25, 2023 11:30 AM NST
All of this is underwhelming. Although I think the food item is cute.
missdood, May 25, 2023 11:36 AM NST
Aw, come on now. the ribbon outfit is cute too! Just have to see how it plays out on Koi that are not rainbow.
iloveeevee, May 25, 2023 12:00 PM NST
the ribbon outfit is cute
terraswan, May 25, 2023 12:17 PM NST
The colour feels like a bit of a missed opportunity. Wish they'd been a bit more creative with this one and made it look more like a real see-through fish, like a barreleye or something. But then, I'm not a big fan of transparent pets to start with.

Ribbon outfit is pretty cute though. Bet it would look nice on a Toy Koi. Like a piñata.

I love the rainbow ribbon outfit!! Makes the Koi look like the Toy Gnorbu's cousin

^A Fiñata!

Loving the ribbons for Pride Month!
thepapercutjellyfish, May 25, 2023 3:14 PM NST
omg the ribbon outfit is super cool! I wish there was a way to make more pets a similar outfit
darella, May 25, 2023 4:22 PM NST
The ribbon outfit is so pretty! Something like this with big betta fins would look amazing.

It’s almost like they’ve never seen a fish skeleton before
powerwingamber, May 25, 2023 5:40 PM NST
Oh my gosh! Is that ribbon outfit meant to be a Koinobori?! A little late for Children's Day (May 5), but I hope that's what this is.

i was thinking of children's day as well, but i feel like we're giving them too much credit for something that's probably just fun party streamers.
i only say that because... wouldn't we get at least some sort of body paint that resembles the carps more? >< (scales and a white belly at least.)
contessa, May 25, 2023 6:51 PM NST
I don't have a Koi, but if I did I would really want that ribbon outfit,m It is so pretty!
1jediboy, May 25, 2023 7:55 PM NST
powerwingamber, May 25, 2023 8:07 PM NST

Yeah, you're probably right. I was hoping that maaaybe it could be, though. ^^;

Ah, I'd love to have more koi fish-like colors, though. I guess for now, we could throw the ribbon outfit on a spotted Koi.

Well real fish cannot hold items with their fins unlike Koi in Neopets so needing to have exact image of real life fish isn't really a problem in my opinion

(who, as a fisher, has seen plenty fish skeletons)
apophis324, May 25, 2023 11:48 PM NST
Hmm, I guess I'm the only one not loving the ribbon outfit? Then again, it appears I'm just very hard to please, so.. My opinion obviously doesn't count ^^
C-Can we at least agree it's strange for such a colourful outfit to appear at Pigpants and Swolthy? The Neovian tailors specialise in old-fashioned outfits in muted tones. This is.. the opposite of that. Definitely more an outfit one would expect to find at the fabulous Uni's clothing store...
breezydreams, May 26, 2023 12:54 AM NST

You know the Unis would just be "borrowing" the ribbon pieces to braid into their manes and tails, right?

I like the lamp, and maybe the sail fin, but... the spikes are a bit sharp for hugs. If you attach the spikes with superglue, I guess you could keep the tube in your pocket, in case you or other Pets forget and puncture yourselves.... No waterbeds for the Koi now, sorry!
remy, May 26, 2023 4:12 AM NST
*sigh* Why did they give the Koi nostril holes? Someone at TNT is aware of how fish breathe right? The regular Koi don't even have nostrils so wth?...
dave - JN Staff, May 26, 2023 10:16 AM NST
@apophis324: You should see what they're putting in Cog's Togs.

It seems that after a few editorial questions asking TNT to spread wearables around (so Uni's isn't so clogged), they're just picking other random wearable shops for some of them.

Solves the initial problem (good!), but throws the shop theming away (I guess that's bad, but I just don't care about that problem enough in the grand scheme of things!)
quailbat - JN Staff, May 26, 2023 10:54 AM NST
why do the ribbon whiskers come out by the eyeballs??
claytonskitten, May 26, 2023 12:42 PM NST
Omg the transparent Koi is giving me some major spooky vibes. Might need to get one for Halloween lol. Love both outfits as well but I know better than to even want them. RSing anything new is dreadful anymore.
apophis324, May 27, 2023 1:23 AM NST
@dave: Time to send in an Editorial question regarding the theming of the stores, so they can get their act together again~! Not that they ever answer my Editorial questions...

geodracula, May 28, 2023 7:51 PM NST
@remy Fish do have 'nostrils', though. They're actually called nares. The main difference between nostrils and nares is that the latter are only used for smelling, but you can see them in a lot of fish skulls.
roshchodesh, May 29, 2023 11:42 AM NST
I think nares and nostrils are the same.
