Learning the Art of the Negative Question with Ika Musume Chan

侵略!イカ娘 is one of the funniest animes I’ve seen in awhile.  My favorite genres are action and comedy.

Each episode title is phrased as a negative question, which I thought was interesting.  They leave イカ (squid) on the end to highlight the fact that it is a pun.

Episode 1
