"Shinryaku shina-ika?" (侵略しなイカ？)Edit
"Who's Up for a squidvasion? / Aren't You Going to Invade?"
Angered by the pollution in the seas, Squid Girl comes from the sea and declares the invasion of Earth at a nearby yakisoba stand, but is not taken seriously due to her small stature. When she goes to plead her case, she is mistaken for a waitress, which puts the responsibility of invading the world into perspective. When she breaks a hole in the store with her tentacles, trying to hit a mosquito, the store manager, Eiko Aizawa, puts her to work in order to pay for the damages.
Based on Chapter 1.
"Dōhō ja na-ika?" (同胞じゃなイカ？)Edit
"Hold On a Squid, Aren't You a Compatriot? / Aren't You My Comrade?"
Squid Girl meets Eiko's little brother, Takeru Aizawa, who goes to great lengths to pretend to be a squid-person so he can be her comrade.
Based on Chapter 3.
"Saikyō ja na-ika?" (最強じゃなイカ？)Edit
"Aren't I just the squiddiest? / Aren't I the Strongest?"
During a rainy day where there are few customers, Squid Girl takes the opportunity to try and take over the stand, but is overpowered by the eldest sister, Chizuru Aizawa. As punishment, Squid Girl is forced to use her own ink to make squid ink spaghetti, which becomes popular.
Based on Chapters 2 and 5.
