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.

I'm just left feeling empty now. I'm kind of bummed that we may never get more of squid girl.

So the second season i can't really say if it's an improvement over the first season. Second season seems to have more shorts stories. While the first season seemed longer. But we do get a lot more creative idea's in this.

I don't like that the Three Stooges or Scientist got even more screen time. I genuinely dislike them and feel they only hamper the shows quality. I still like Cindy. She can be fun by herself.

I also don't like the shy girls dad that makes ...

Shinryaku!? Ika Musume is the second season of the Ika Musume or Squid Girl franchise –a highly risible anime series about an adorable and bumbling anthropomorphic squid christened Ika Musume (unimaginative name, eh?) who originally intended to invade the surface to punish the filthy and callous human race for polluting the ocean.

Unfortunately, a high school girl (albeit with superhuman powers) trounces Ika in her first battle, which quickly puts an end to the underwater threat to human civilization. Of course, this hardly dissuades Ika Musume (because she is a numbskull) who ardently continues to pursue her quixotic idée fixe and concocts outlandish schemes, by the ...
