I believe Ika-musume was really once a young girl.
It was before she was born that Ika-musume's boshi had made a bond with Ika-musume's mother.
Tragically, her father had passed away before she was born and her mother a few years after before Ika-musume was old enough to be mature. Knowing Ika-musume had no chance of surviving alone at sea the boshi gave up his self existence to care for the daughter of the first human to ever show him kindness. That is how the two of them became one.

Ika-musume was also born many years ago. A side effect of the bonding is that the aging process and development process was slowed down. She is still a middle school girl but she has lived much longer than a normal child would have. Now that she has developed her growth rate has returned to normal.

Ika-musume's boshi may be an alien or may even have been an intelligent deep sea being. The two have bonded in a symbiotic relationship where now their thoughts and feelings are basically one and the same.

Ika-musume does have a family though. Other than her boshi she does have a traditional father, King of the Giant squids. She also has an older brother, the thousand year old sea turtle. Both of these giant characters make an appearance in episode 258 of the manga where he father comes out of the ocean to the lemon restaurant to thank chizuru for taking care of his daughter. Of course, much panic ensues and everyone hides for cover except for chizuru who has a sparkle in her eye overflowing with excitement.

Nice therories, but what like they always say, often the simpliest solution is often the best, and I think Cindy was right on about Ika being a member of an undersea alien race from other space that created hybrid squid-humans to adapt to land and sea -- and they must seriously get around in Ika's world because hardly anyone is surprised or awed by her truth!!

I rather like your idea, but I think I can point to an identity of Ika-chan's species.

A highly advanced species, not native to Earth, in fact they arrived 100 millions of years ago, per-dating life as we currently know it. As a species they are equality capable of living underwater or on land for long periods of time, and if you go by what is suggested in the previews, even self powered flight. They posses *tentacles* of both unusual strength but of also finesse.

As a species they are highly developed in mathematics and the other sciences, and are capable of learning at an astounding rate. The writing Ika-chan used is meant to be highly representative, developed from a tradition of largely visual storytelling.

I think her specie's original form was very much different, but over the countless eons they have changed their form, eventually arriving at a form much like that of modern humans.

If Cindy was is ever to actually get a sample of Ika-chan's DNA and compare it to specimens gathered in the mid 1930's in Antarctica by geologist Dr. William Dyer and now held by a certain Massachusetts university, she will find the actual mind blasting truth of Ika-chan...

The cute squid girl we all know and love is in fact, removed by 100 million years of purposeful evolution, is what Dr. Dyer named during the disastrous Pablodie Expedition and referenced in that accursed tome the Necronomicon, an Elder Thing!

Edit: Not paying attention when checking spelling.
