Can't believe No-Rider Hannya made another appearance. That last hit was so epic. I was so sad to see her go back to the sea. With everyone on shore to see her off, it shows how many people she befriended during her "invasion." It was really touching the way everyone was acting after she left and her return and the saving of Eiko shows how much she has become apart of their family.

Great episode and great series. Not only does it make me laugh, but it also succeeds in making me freaked out and touched. This has become one of my favorites. I really look forward to the second season of Ika Musume!

i really wasnt expecting much of this anime, but i downloaded it anyway, i was pleasantly surprised, it had some pretty funny moments (i pretty much lost my shit in the volleyball part where they all brag about the 'unbreakable, nonreturnable ball, then go to spike it and he hand breaks in xray slowmo to his scream) and outside of that i was pretty much wearing a shit eating grin throughout the entire series.

very glad i picked this up, solid 9/10

The third segment felt out of place / rushed.
But the ending credits were pretty nice.

I thought this was supposed to be a comedy not a drama, feelings everywhere in this episode .

A lot of feels in this episode. Nothing is the same without Ika-chan mess up around.
She sucks as an invader but she's the most cute and adorable squid ever <3

I enjoyed this anime a lot, great humor.

It started slow (for me) but quickly took a hold of my heart XD Episode 5, 3rd sequence totally did it for me.

Eps 1-9 were just fantastic. The last 3 were a bit slow and the ending left me with some questions. Why did Ika-chan come back talking normally? Like, I didn't get that at all. Other than that and the overly dramatic ending, it was a really enjoyable series. Looking forward to season 2!

Didn't really get into it at first but the series really started to pick up halfway and the last few episodes were great.

It's just shame that season 2 has a different voice actor for squid girl (English dub.

3/5 for being extremely cheesy, but at least it was better than when it tries to do comedy.

Didn't really like this show that much. Didn't really find it that funny. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood. Might as well watch season 2.

Also, considering that this is my 200th completed anime, I think that I should start watching better shows for my milestones.

That was one serious case of erectile disfunction if I've ever seen one. Moral of the story is: it's better to be a squid than a normalfag.

The first mini episode was great fun, I bent over with laughter. The remaining episode is a bit sad, but still treading the hand, showing a somewhat melancholic narrative, in the end is not heavy and boring to watch. Drawings and animations, good. I can finally start the second season, Yay!

This time I will give 8/10, because he deserves it.

This was a very good episode. I'm glad Ika came back after so long it seems for them then she gets her powers back :3
Time for season 2!

She is back and with long hair :P Short hair doesn't really suit her anyway, so it's fine!

Overall a solid series, 7/10.

Having a good setting for a series does wonder for one's personal enjoyment, especially when it comes to a slice of life, and boy was this fun to watch. There were a few segments that felt really, really forced and cringe-inducing like the second half of this episode, but generally it's a nice slice of life, and (mini) Ika Musume is so cute. The art style is also something I really like from the past era, similar to Hayate no Gotoku. (personally didn't like the round face moe of this era)

The beach volleyball episode was really funny, with Sanae confirming her M obsession and also the Chizuru Eiko's save. The crsis ending was also really well done. This anime overall, was really a fun ride.

Without change,we end up becoming the very person we hate.

So that girl appeared out of nowhere just to give Squid girl moral support and leaves just like that? What the hell?
Squid girl looked super cute with short hair. Ahhh, this was great.

Finally she turned around and gave us a sweet smile.

Welp, that was enjoyable. The first episode didn't 'wow' me, but after that, everything had a nice flow and I enjoyed every episode after that. I'll put this at an 8.
Time for season 2!

My favorite part was when Ika said whenever she lost her tentacles again she will throw Eiko into the ocean again, Damn that was a funny line.

All I can say about this anime is everything was perfect!

Very sweet and funny last episode. I didn't expect this anime to be so entertaining.

Great comedy, characters and atmosphere. One of my favorite anime of all time.

Well, that was a mysterious encounter!

Also, TIL this series takes place on the beach of

I was surprised at how no-holds-barred that
was. But then again, given how insane everyone is on a regular basis, perhaps I shouldn't have been surprised.

Overall, I like this, but I think I was thrown off by the realistic setting in this story. I think I expected something a little more like...well, I knew Squid Girl herself would be a fish out of water (pun not intended but acknowledged), but I didn't expect this many characters in the rest of the setting to be such weirdos, especially the alleged* MIT grads.

Though, the main cast got developed somewhat more thoroughly -- and my favorite character is Eiko. I just love how down-to-earth she is, how she just deals with whatever, no matter how insane. Though Chizuru ain't bad either, and Nagisa not only looks pretty but also participates in a hilarious daisy chain of ironic relationships.

*Those are very much not MIT grads. They are complete bozos. And we don't even have class rankings, lol.
