Synopsis

The nefarious Squid Girl is back to continue her self-appointed mission to invade the surface world. Or that's what she would do, if she could just stop getting distracted by squidding movies, reading squidly manga, and making friends as only a squid could make them. Squid Girl must overcome not only danger found at every turn, but her own squidly good nature as well.

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 read more

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 read more

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 read more

The invader returns for a second season. What I'd call a surprise hit from late 2010 was not going to go unnoticed this time around, it had a lot to squid up to.

If you've seen season one (which I'm assuming you have), season 2 is exactly the same. There is absolutely no plot outside of Ika Musume came from the sea to invade the Earth for polluting the ocean and is now working at a beach shack.

All the characters from last time are back too, and pretty much the same. Eiko still has a tsundere relationship with Ika Musume, Chizuru is still scary, read more
