Unfortunately, Third Impact is one group I can't exhort you all to go out and buy the album of, because they don't have one; however, you CAN buy the single here.
If you've seen Squid Girl, then you get the joke behind the title of this video. If you haven't, then I hope this video convinces you to watch it. It's a fun and cute series, lighthearted and episodic, good for when you just need a laugh and a smile; listen to the lyrics and you'll get a pretty good idea of what the show is all about.
And for those of you who'd rather hear it from me: she's a squid, she's a girl, she comes from under the sea, she's trying to conquer the human race in return for their crimes against the ocean, but she gets stuck serving at a beach house restaurant. Slice of life comedy ensues. Oh, and lots of cool tentacle tricks.
Bumper music: "Curtain Rise" from the Melty Blood: Actress Again soundtrack
Credits music: "Stage Clear" from Sonic the Hedgehog 2, by Masato Nakamura (plus appropriate sound effects)
