Sequels to two comedies aired this season: Working!! and Ika Musume. While Working’!! quickly became stale and repetitive, Ika Musume managed to stay funny and keep its charm.
Its setup has a lot more space to work with. Pretty much any every day scenario can become funny when you insert squid girl. Have her take a trip to the park with Takeru. Make Sanae her bodyguard. Have her attend elementary school for a day. Or just make Ika Musume small and everything becomes adorable! In Working, on the other hand, the setup for the jokes is more contrived and limited.
If you’ve seen the first season, the second season is much the same. Give it a watch!
