Synopsis

Foolish land-born air breathers! Behold the terror from the depths, the tentacled conqueror of humanity: Squid Girl! With your pollution and stuff you really deserve it, so prepare for menacing, inky doom!

Squid Girl has come from the depths of the sea to conquer humanity for its pollution of the ocean. Within moments of arriving on the surface world, our easily distracted, little invertebrate is promptly bullied into working for the Aizawa sisters as a waitress, supplying their restaurant with squid ink. If poor Squid Girl can't handle two pushy Japanese girls, how will she ever subjugate the human race?

The problem with the anime industry is the continuous failure to capitalise on titles that are actually good, and instead redirect time and resources to producing shows that leave you as empty as a tectonic bowel movement. Every genre has suffered this iniquity, but while most bounce back with other, much better offerings (comparatively speaking), comedy continues to prove the medium's "Achilles heel". Those of you who are fans of Gintama may disagree with that perception, but consider for a moment the number of anime released during the last year that have borne the "comedy" label.

Now have a think about whether they made you laugh, read more

Squid girl was something I found while just browsing around for something to watch. Its intriguing title led me to watch over the weekend and I feel glad that I watched it.

Story 3/10
Story in itself is not very great at all. It is one of those short animes but it does not do much with its story though thats mainly the fact that it is for the most part a comedic anime. The line, "I am Squid Girl, emissary of the sea," would make you think what else could Squid Girl do with herself besides spit ink and use her tentacles.

Art 8/10
Its a pretty read more

Recommendations

If you like nonsense comedy, go with Shinryaku! Ika Musume and Azumanga Daioh. The first is some kind of an amateur version of the second, but the laughter is guaranteed either way.

And don't forget: Osaka-san rules all!
Ambitious "conquerors" attempting to take over the world but ends up becoming a part of the working society. Both packed with comedic moments, it'll sure to entertain everybody.

Opening Theme

"Shinryaku no Susume☆ (侵略ノススメ☆)" by ULTRA-PRISM with Ika Musume
