So, as many of you know by now, the mega-hit anime from Fall 2010 “Shinryaku! Ika Musume” is getting a 2nd season.
In a magazine, it was revealed today that the title for it would be slightly different:
Shinryaku!? Ika Musume (侵略！？イカ娘)
Keen observers would note the addition of a “?” in the title. Where the name for the 1st season was an assertive, the name for the 2nd season really calls into question if Ika Musume is invading at all.
Does it matter? Somewhat. We’ve already seen that Ika Musume isn’t fulfilling her “promise” and this name announcement really reveals the direction the series will be taking.
In related news, it was also revealed that the director of the 1st season, Mizushima Tsutomu will be making a return as the General Director.
I suppose it’ll be safe to assume that we’ll be seeing a very similar style of plot compared to the 1st season. No date has been set yet.
