English Title: Invasion!  Squid Girl

For generations, humanity has abused the seas and oceans, with little thought to the creatures living within.  Now, Squid Girl has emerged from the depths of the sea, ready to conquer humanity for its insolence.  Unfortunately for her, the task is far, far more difficult than she had anticipated (she’s dismayed to learn there’s over six billion of us), and for now she’d be happy to merely conquer one small seaside restaurant and the family that runs it.

The poor Squid Girl is naive, malicious and powerless all at once.  She gets increasingly frustrated that nobody will take her seriously, even though she’s far out of her league among even normal humans.  She makes for a great underdog villain, hopelessly outclassed but ever enthusiastic.  Her failures, though expected, make for solid comedy in the most fun show this season.
