Synopsis

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

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
