The comedic story of one squid girl’s attempt to invade and conquer the land-dwellers has been a surprise pick-up on my part. It hasn’t been the funniest show of the season but it’s been pretty solid so far which makes it somewhat difficult to discussion. Good enough that it’s hard to discuss what’s wrong with it but not quite good enough that I can expound at length why it’s awesome. So I’m going change the format I normally use.

Being a Squid girl, one component to the comedy of the series is the fish-out-of-water type.
Another component to this show is Squid Girl being cute.
This is an example of a typical story in Shinryaku! Ika Musume.
And there’s various other things tucked into the show that make it funny.
