The media-distribution website Crunchyroll confirmed on Sunday that it will stream the first episode of Squid Girl Season 2 at the corrected time of Monday, September 26 at 1:30 p.m. EDT in the same countries as the first season. The site had listed a stream of the season's first episode early last week.
Based on Masahiro Anbe's manga, the anime follows the story of Squid Girl (Ika Musume), who comes out of the sea to make humanity pay for polluting the ocean. However, two pushy girls force her to work at a restaurant to produce squid ink. Squid Girl must overcome the bossy waitresses before she can complete her goal of conquering humankind.
The second season will also premiere in Japan on Monday. The voice actress group Sphere performs the opening theme song "High Powered," while an ending theme is sung by the voice of Squid Girl herself, Hisako Kanemoto.
The first season premiered last October, and Crunchyroll streamed that season into several countries as it aired in Japan last year. Media Blasters will ship the first season on DVD in North America on September 27.
