Squid Girl/Shinryaku! Ika Musume Manga's 22nd Volume Will Be Last

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Comedy manga's 21st volume shipped on Friday

Manga creator Masahiro Anbe revealed in his 21st Shinryaku! Ika Musume (Squid Girl) manga volume on Friday that the manga's 22nd volume will be the last.

The comedy manga follows a squid girl who vows to invade the beaches of mankind since humans have polluted the seas. However, her invasion is less than successful, and she ends up on dry land.

Anbe launched the manga in Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine in 2007. The manga received two 12-episode television anime series adaptations. The first season premiered in 2010, while the second season premiered in 2011. Crunchyroll streamed both television anime as they aired in Japan under the title Squid Girl, and also streamed two original video DVDs. Media Blasters licensed both seasons, and it released the first season on DVD in 2011, and in a complete Blu-ray Disc collection in 2012.

Anbe previously collaborated with Nintendo's Splatoon Wii U shooter game to promote the game.

Thanks to Michael O'Rourke for the news tip.
