The nefarious Squid Girl is back to continue her self-appointed mission to invade the surface world. Or that's what she would do, if she could just stop getting distracted by squidding movies, reading squidly manga, and making friends as only a squid could make them. Squid Girl must overcome not only danger found at every turn, but her own squidly good nature as well.

I'll come right out and say it; I enjoyed the first season of Ika Musume very much. But I'll try my best to stay fair throughout this review.

Ika Musume season 2,like the previous season, provides 2 short stories/situations for each episodes. The show did a pretty damn good job at keeping each episode fresh with a different topic. Being limited to the beach, it's surprising how they can keep up with new things. Despite the fact that the setting was something that was prone to become boring quickly, Ika Musume season 2 pulled it off nicely. (well, so far.) I have to admit that read more

This is my first time attempting reviews again, so I hope this one is helpful!

I found the first season of Ika Musume to be all right. It was cute and easy to watch, but it was great. The second season, on the other hand, was fantastic.

Story- I always found the story to be very unique- a squid attempting to invade humanity in revenge for the humans polluting the ocean. The second season continues where we left off, with Ika Musume getting into more crazy situations. In this season, however, she doesn't focus as much on invading humanity. 9/10

Art- The art was simple. The characters looked read more

After a year of absence, Ika Musume returns once again to invade the anime world, bringing along with her all the gags and skits of the first season back for another run. For those who have watched season one of Ika Musume, this is definitely a must-watch. But even for those who haven't watched season one, you won't be missing anything if you jump right into the second season. All you need to know is that there's a squid girl "attempting" to invade the land. Shinryaku!? Ika Musume is essentially the exact replica of the first season except with different stories so don't go into read more

Gentlemen, the new second season of the most addicting shit ever made is finally here.

Ika Musume is back! After a year-long time since it has started airing in October 2010 (9 months break since it has finished airing in December 2010) we finally get a new season a couple of days before October 2011, before the new Fall 2011 anime season starts.

And this time, Ika-Musume is more ADORABLE and BADASS than ever.

Story: 10
The story is extremely simple yet shows some layers of unheard complexity. The most ADORABLE and BADASS humanoid squid creature of the bright blue sea comes to shore to invade humanity read more

Anime: Tamako Market

Both MC's are creatures with some human-like features.

Both MC's found themselves hanging out in some food establishment.

Both MC's have a mission on the place they went through.

Both MC's can be rather annoying.

Both animes have comedy and slice of life.


The MC in one anime is a half human and half squid and has special abilities, while the other one is just a pesky bird who simply can talk.

One anime is set in some tropical seaside beach in southern Japan, while the setting in another anime is in some shopping district  read more
