After regaining her squid-like abilities, Ika Musume plans to resume her self-appointed mission to destroy all of humanity. However, her carefree job as a waitress in the Lemon beach house meant she cannot help but laze around during her spare time! On top of that, she is saddled with many problems, such as being pursued by a group of alien-obsessed individuals and catching the interest of a crazy girl.

Picking up after the conclusion of the first season, Shinryaku!? Ika Musume follows the hilarious life of Ika Musume as she plots her next invasion of the surface world.

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 ...

Here we go again!

The second season of Shinryaku!? Ika Musume is very much like the first season however with some changes here and there, for one, no more new characters are permanently added to the cast, it's the same cast we know with all their running gags only amplified.

For one, Cyndi and the Three stooges' invention gets ramped up into more bizarre inventions that utterly don't help the situation in their venture to make Ika Musume their test subject, Sanae's obsession with Ika Musume is amped up as well with her obsession going into masochist mild yandere states at times.

Once again many of Ika Musume's ...

Inkvasion sorta kinda suckcessful somewhat to a certain extent...

Whilst FUNi was waiting for Geneon so they can get their DVD+BD combos (as well as releasing fanservicy animu that feature "herbivore shounen"), Media Blasters (along with the non-"Poof Sputter" arm of Bang Zoom) managed to release season 1 onto DVD here pretty quickly.

Kraken-chan Season 2 is more of the same, unfortunately. There's nothing new about this animu.

* Chizuru is STILL an undefeatable Mary-Sue.
* Goro becomes her punching bag. Literally.
* Ayumi now falls into the "I can beat a guy up" category.

If this series wasn't so charming and endearing, I would've set it near the lot of ...
