The sea in our world has been polluted. All sorts of trash were thrown into it, making it unpleasant deep down in the sea. One of the inhabitants of the sea, Ika Musume (Squid Girl) seeks to exact revenge on humanity for throwing trash into the sea. Clueless about the surface, she seeks to invade humanity alone, trying to rule over the world... only to find herself enslaved by one of the nearest beach-houses for breaking one side of the wall!

Manga: Yotsubato!
Curious cute little girl doing cute stuff in the strangest way possible is the premise of these comedy manga both catering to the male demographic (whether Yotsuba is seinen or shounen is still arguable so let's generalize that). Art in both are greatly similar to one another - simple yet appealing.

Manga: Shinkaigyo no Anko-san
Shinrakyu Ika Musume (Squid Girl) and Shinkaigyo no Anko-san both has a main female protagonist with attributes of sea creature. Their personalities contrasts with one another but often catches the attention of others because of their appearances. While lacking a complex story, they make it up with their humorous comedy and experience gags that depicts their lives on Earth. Recommended for fans of supernatural + slice of life fiction presented in a lighthearted format.

Manga: LuCu LuCu
Strange little girl with prehensile hair joins a small family and helps them out with house work all the while learning about the world they're entirely new to. Both also happen to have a stalker for a crush, loveable lunatics that try (and fail repeatedly) to best the MC with absurd methods and a sensible person to keep their actions in line when not busy with school.

Manga: Centaur no Nayami
With a slice of life mood, both series adapts a story with a lighthearted atmosphere with a cast of peculiar characters. It's noticeable that both series has supernatural themes with a lot of parody and gags. Centaur no Nayami occasionally adapts more of a serious tone with emotional appeal while Shinryaku has more comedy.

Manga: Silva.
the biggest similarity between the two manga lies in the main character, both manga have a cute little girl with special powers as a main character. Ika musume wants to invade the world and Silva is part of an organisation that wants to take over the world. in addition ika musume loves shrimp and Silva loves pudding

both manga have a lot of comedy.

Manga: Barakamon
There's this elegant charm that I find for both Barakamon and Shinrakyu Ika Musume (Squid Girl). Both series adapts slice of life with good amounts of comedy. Their cast of characters has a wide range of personalities to craft fun and entertainment with their roles. And among other things, both series builds on the foundation of a variety of themes - some for fun, some with values, and other for relationship building. While neither series has any significant story plots, both series finds its way with the sheer laughter they can bring.
