Heyo everyone. Do you all think there's gonna be season 2? I think so, because I noticed unique character in end credit on ep.12.... I'll give 79% positive about it. Give us your option about it ;]

I certainly hope so, and am cautiously optimistic. Reviews I've read on other sites also seem generally favorable for Ika Musume, and there was a recent news blurb I saw on Anime News Network about "-de geso" and "-ika" being particularly popular catchphrases, suggesting it's reasonably popular among the home crowd in Japan too. PVC figurines of Ika-chan have also recently become available (for pre-order). I'm hoping this all means there's sufficient demand out there to convince the powers that be to green-light a second season. The new character appearing in the last episode is perhaps a good sign as well.

(Then again, another series I liked, Bamboo Blade, ended it's first season with a mystery character introduced in the last episode, and also had figures available--- and has since disappeared without a trace-- i.e. no second season for the anime. I hear the manga continued on, but not the anime. Maybe it wasn't widely popular, though...)

I hope so. Not all the manga was translated into anime as far as I can tell. So I hope that makes it into another season or OAV at least.

I sincerely hope so. If not, they left a lot of big quesions at the end. Like, "What is Squid Girl's home like?", and "Who was that mysterious person?", and one of my biggest ones, "What did she mean, 'You're not alone.'?"

Well, she was wearing a funny hat too, and looking around I found out her name means octopus or something. I at least did feel satisfied with the conclusion. I think they just left it open in case there would be a second season, but I won't get my hopes up.

About her home, I'll take Soul Eater as an example of a story where they talk about a character (or place in this case) and it never appears in the story. After all, they can't just leave the restaurant to visit a place that even Ika took a year to go to and return from (unless she was just sulking that whole time).

I'm just sad that the two series I got into just ended: this one and Jellyfish Princess. (What's up with all this ocean anime?)

I really hope not like 80% of it would be an awful retreading . They covered everything they needed to and the ending was fine.

Looks like we'll all get to find out! I hope Crunchyroll will stream this too when the time comes-- I personally wouldn't want to miss this.
