Shinryaku! Ika Musume
Shinryaku! Ika Musume, the comedy and slice of life manga about a Squid Girl name Ika who tries to (unsuccessfully) conquer Earth for polluting the oceans and the human family she lives with, will be getting an anime adaptation! Currently there are 6 Volumes of the manga.


I'm fan of this manga since its cute and funny. So its nice to know it's turning into an anime. I have a prediction Ika's VA will be To Aru's Index VA since both characters look alike.


Winner of Animesuki 2010 Choice Award for Best Comedy Series

I'll add the covers of the shounen manga Shinryaku! Ika Musume to this post:


Shinryaku! Ika Musume
The invader comes from the bottom of the sea!

The manga is serialized in the shounen manga magazine Weekly Shounen Champion.
Currently there are 5 volumes released of this manga, and volume 6 will be released on April 8th, 2010.


From Hidoi~! Translators:


The sea in our world has been polluted. All sort of trash were thrown into the sea, making it unpleasant deep under the sea. One of the inhabitant of the sea, Ika Musume (Squid Girl) seeks to exact revenge on humanity for throwing trash into the sea. Clueless about the surface, she seeks to invade humanity alone, trying to rule over the world, only to find herself slaving away at one of the nearest beach-houses for breaking a side of its wall.
Mangaka: Anbe Masahiro

Genre: Shounen, Comedy

Don't be so quick to judge without first knowing what it is.:(
Shinryaku! Ika Musume is not a 4-koma manga, it's an 8 page serial weekly manga. Also the jokes and story of the manga are funny and heart warming.

Lol the main character looks like a replica of index.

Kenn 2010-03-26 15:29

:D Great news. I really liked the manga. Ika-musume can be so cute.

Sai Feng 2010-03-26 17:54

Sweet, I never thought this would get animated-geso. I can also picture Yuka doing the voice for Ika.

The website's up!

SquirrelLuvsPnut 2010-04-23 19:38

Y' know ever since I read a little article about giant squids I've become very interested in them, so this came just in time.

Duo Maxwell 2010-04-24 08:46

The manga is so adorable that I can't pass this up :D.

SquirrelLuvsPnut 2010-05-19 13:40

Some staff info is up as well as some character sketches.

EDIT: Official site has been revamped. Cool.

CVs for the anime were announced!

Ayumi Fujimura as Eiko Aizawa
Hisako Kanemoto as Ika Musume
Rie Tanaka as Chizuru Aizawa
Kanae Itō as Sanae Nagatsuki
Yuuichi Nakamura as Goro Arashiyama

I like the motto "The invader comes from the bottom of the sea"..and after seeing the story review, i kinda think they should put " " for the word invader to add the cuteness to the so-called invader :heh:

MisaoFan 2010-07-05 03:39

The anime starts this October.

I was honestly expecting Yuka Iugchi, but Kanemoto needs to have some more major roles to show her talents.

margafred 2010-07-05 10:23

You mean expecting this...


Midonin 2010-07-05 10:26

I love it when fanartists are on the same wavelength as me.

FireChick 2010-08-11 09:34

I have one question about this anime/manga: Is it ecchi or not?:heh: Sorry. I just wanna make sure before I put it on my watch-list.

Midonin 2010-08-11 09:42

Not really, though there's plenty of ways to find out for yourself.
