1st part was full of gratuitous and pretty good English except for Eiko, she needs to get with the program and learn some English like the rest of them. LOL at the tourist being scared away by Eiko's piss poor English skills. A spelling error was in the subs used in the anime though. I'm amazed at the accents though, some sounded pretty American especially Cyndi. The Seiyuu must have had lessons in sounding American or at least close to it.
Ika got tickled into oblivion, look at that Akari face, Sanae loved it and got a photo as well. Seriously don't even prank around with Chizuru unless you can take what she dishes out. Oh Chizuru's cure for hiccups nobody wants that, that antidote is scary.
This is without a doubt the best episode yet. I loved all of it (not that I disliked any of Ika Musume).
English was fun. Surprisingly, their English is pretty good (although there were spelling mistakes, but the pronunciation is definitely at least decent for non-native speakers). Eiko saying "I'll kill you!" to that gaijin made me laugh out loud.
Chizuru in the second part was awesome as well. I love how she can't be tickled (does she even have any weaknesses?), and also how she "cured" Ika's hiccups.
Last part was the best simply because mini-Ika Musume returned! I really liked the part where she sailed down the stream; it was super cute :)
Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.
First skit killed me. Oh, man the miscommunications were so well done, their accents were pretty good and Cindy was on point when it came to speaking her native tongue. Loved EVERY second of it.
Second skit also got me laughing with the whole Chizuru thing. Wouldn't want to tickle her after seeing that. Spoiling Ika Musume was also a good watch.
My favorite moment was definitely the third skit. Those boys are very considerate, and taking down their own boat so that Ika may win was just hilarious. Moment of the show for me was definitely Mini Ika Musume's ride down the stream. That was just too cute.
ALSO: Can I request for someone to make a .gif of Mini-Ika Musume clapping during her boat ride, when the fish were jumping? I'm really bad at Photoshopping, let alone making .gif. I just found that exact moment to be the best moment of the show. Thanks in advance.
You people are all either very dense or non-native English speakers. In fact, even someone without ANY knowledge of English what-so-ever should be able to realize that was NOT Cindy's seiyuu speaking English. The voices sound completely different and you can even hear irregularitys in the audio indicating that the English lines probably weren't recorded in a professional studio. I'm guessing they just got some American girl to read a few lines over the telephone and then spliced them in.
ok, best episode as for now... still behind first series
there is progress so maybe it will not be that bad
first part - ok at the begining it was funny and all... but later it felt a bit forced and too long (+-)
second - great plus: Chizuru :) I was affraid they forgot about her "special" skils, but fortunatelly not (+)
third part - mini-Ika cute as always, this part was sweet :D , rest was fine - not that I like to much those guys :P (++-)
but show still has potential and hopefully it will make use of it
It doesn't count when all you do, is say a couple of words that sound like English but still don't sound quite right.

LOL, I'm sure most of us understand that there were two different "Cindys"...
Pffft....."American girl".....if that's true then they gave her the stupidest lines ever, because that was NOT proper English, NOT AT ALL.
Momo=Coke, Yami=Pepsi, Mikan=Sunkist, Yui=Dr. Pepper, Lala=Diet Coke, Nana=RC Cola
first part- I thought the engrish and Cindy's sudden change in voice actor along with the really bad subtitles was more hillarious than annoying.
second part- Chizuru took it a little far, but it worked in the end. I'm surprised Ika doesn't know what ticking is as hasn't she tickled people with her tentacles before?
third part- The Mini-ika part reminded me of pixar for some reason and the episode ended funny with the John Lennon beach house. How far downstream did she go to get there though?
all in all good episode, one of the better ones of the season
i guess that Cindy is American and want her to sound like one when speaking english that is why they hired American VA to do that.
love the scene where Eiko thought how ika chan going to teach english haha.about Cindy speaking english definitely not the same VA doing it.the english part it's like you are watching Ika Musume dub haha
well it's a good episode but sucks to wait for a 2 weeks ? for the next one
I loved the English miscommunication part XD I wonder if they hired an English-speaking VA for at least Cindy's English, because it sounds pretty standard. My fave part was probably "psycho" and "bimbo" XD
Mini-Ika is adorable, I want a plushie of it so I can squish it
Best episode of the season. Epic English/Engrish! The tickling part was the weakest but still had some great moments and then the return of chibi-Ika. Love it. And John Lennon...what the f? I think even he would have approved.
