Series of OVAs for the shinryaku ika musume series that were bundled with some volumes of the manga. So let's get into it,

But first, this is a purely comedic series and even in the main series on in these OVAs there is minimal plot and some elements like the dumb-sounding language and behaviour of the MIT scientists or how ika musume looks etc are not meant to be criticized, and if you do you're just making a fool of yourself since you are missing out on the fun and trying to find shounen/adventure or drama and other more serious anime genres kind of flaws on read more

Ok, degeso, It's time for me to make a review of this 1 off OVA of "Shinryaku! Ika Musume," degeso. So let's get down to business and no more BS, degeso, what we have here is more like an anime that should have been included in season 2 of its parent anime, since it is still compose of 3 omake intergated in one episode, degeso, and each one of it is either a hit or miss, but to me it all a hit in one's funny bone, degeso. So for the story, I'd give it a "Good" number 7, degeso, well, it ain't much but read more
