Ika Musume 2nd Season Title, Director Announced

Shinryaku! Ikamusume


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.

As the series head towards the end the episodes get funnier and funnier. VA Kanemoto Hisako also seems to be more comfortable in her role than ever.

Part A

Eiko digs up an old doll that she used to play with after hearing that its value has skyrocketed. The doll that she digs up scares the life out of Ika Musume, who can’t shake off the seemingly blank gaze from the doll.

The story takes a turn for the worse as the color gradually washes out and elements of Japanese horror stories are incorporated.

I suppose the ending was okay.


Kyousuke bumps into Kirino like in the morning, but instead of being yelled at something is different.vlcsnap-2011-01-13-19h22m27s88vlcsnap-2011-01-13-19h22m34s151vlcsnap-2011-01-13-19h22m36s168vlcsnap-2011-01-13-19h22m42s238vlcsnap-2011-01-13-19h22m58s140vlcsnap-2011-01-13-19h23m24s148vlcsnap-2011-01-13-19h23m34s232vlcsnap-2011-01-13-19h24m06s49vlcsnap-2011-01-13-19h24m18s177vlcsnap-2011-01-13-19h24m33s66
