Appearance Edit

Squid Girl is most known for her light blue eyes and hair, that are actually ten long tentacles that she uses for combat and everyday use. On her head she has a hat (although it was not confirmed if it was an actual hat or part of her body) that is shaped as a squid's head with two fins on each side.

Her real age is unknown but her appearance matches that of a 12 to 16 year old. Her outfit mainly consists a white summer dress with light blue linings and a pair of white ankle boots with a thick ring on top. Around her wrists she always wears two thick blue bracelets that are actually weight shifters.

In episode 12 she cut her tentacles off because they were not working anymore, but they grew back later in the episode.

Aside from her usual dress, she is seen wearing a simple white, one piece, bathing suit when she is swimming.

She also had a coat in Episode 10.

In episode 12 season 2 she wore a pink kimono to a festival
