Shinryaku! Ika Musume Chapter 145

Hello everybody! I present you with my first scanlation. I'd like to thank the anonymous who provided the RAWs for me, and I hope to do a few more of the currently missing Ika Musume chapters over the next little while. If you see any typos or anything don't hesitate to comment and I can do a version 2 or something!

Shinryaku! Ika Musume Chapter 145

Version 2


  1. I noticed your work, and would like to say thank you for the chapter!

    Since you are interested in translating some Ika Musume chapters, I'll fill you in on some of the things going on:
    * The scanlator btr manga is the scanlator working on the earliest untranslated chapters, which is currently Chapters 48 onwards.
    * "Shinryaku Scans" are scanlators working on Volume 6 onwards, so therefore 96 onwards.
    * "Tinted Lens Scanlations" is a scanlator working on Chapters 170s going backwards, but he appears to be busy with university work at the moment.
    * And my "group" Random-ika is mostly an uploader who uploads Chapters others have worked on but are not bothered to have their own accounts.

    Given that, to avoid possible collisions, I think that you should work on Volume 8 (Chapters 134-152) first, since you've already done a chapter from it. It also helps shorten Tinted Lens's work since he seems fairly busy.

    If you decide to do that, You should know that Chapters 135, 140, and 148 from that Volume are already done (140 I plan on uploading later on), so you do not need to worry about scanlating those. That should lighten your load a bit and still give you something you can work on.
    Of course, this is just my opinion.

    I've taken the liberty of adding your group and release to also. If you want me to take care of that for you, then it's no problem. Otherwise, feel free to sign up for it and handle that.

    I know it's rather tl;dr to read all this, but do know that you are appreciated for your contributions.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask me. My contact information can be found at my own blog:

    Keep up the good work, and hopefully with our combined efforts, we can finally get the Ika Musume manga caught up to the latest chapters!

  2. I was thinking about doing volume 8 actually, but now that I know it's a good idea it's definite. Thank you for all your hard work on my part! I'll sign on to manga updates later as I do plan on eventually scanlating other things as well.
    Thank you for your comment, and I hope we can work together for the invasion in the future!

  3. Sweet! More Ika-Musume is always, uh, more welcome!

  4. I will certainly look forward to it!
