HIDIVE Streams Squid Girl English Dub

posted on by Karen Ressler
Episodes begin next Thursday

Anime streaming service HIDIVE announced on Thursday that it will stream the English dub of Squid Girl. It will add new episodes every Thursday at 1:00 p.m. EST starting on November 16. It will also stream the series in Japanese with English subtitles.

Media Blaster previously released the first series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with Japanese and English audio tracks. Sentai Filmworks will release the first and second series and the three-episode original video anime on Blu-ray Disc, DVD, and premium edition combo pack on November 28. The premium edition includes a booklet, art cards, keychain, button pack, and 3D lenticular card.

Sentai Filmworks' new English dub of the second series features the following cast:

John Swasey is directing the dub and Marta Bechtol is writing the script.

Both seasons of the anime adapt Masahiro Anbe's comedy manga about 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. The series ran from 2007 to 2016 in Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion.

The media-distribution website Crunchyroll streamed both seasons of the series in several countries outside of Japan as they aired.
