Anime Description: Squid Girl

From the depths of the seas comes Squid Girl, a young girl with powers and abilities mimicking that of the gastropod she takes after (she even spits ink). Her mission – to conquer humanity for the crime of ecological damage to Earth's oceans. However, her attempt to make a quaint beach house snack bar in Japan her base of operations ends up damaging it. So now the poor girl has to work it off be becoming a waitress to pay the damages!

As a result, Squid Girl, also known as Squidie, comes to know the Aizawa family, who operates the Lemon Beach House, which consists of manager Eiko, her older sister Chizuru, and little brother Takeru. Squidie as well becomes acquainted with Sanae Nagatsuki, the Aizawas' neighbor who develops a schoolgirl crush with the pint-sized invader, which leads to very awkward situations. And it doesn't help Squidie's mission with continual distractions in her way – such as watching movies, reading manga – and making friends!
