When her tentacles cramp, Squid Girl is saved from drowning by the lifeguard Goro. Hearing the lifeguard's job is to protect the sea, Squid Girl feels a sense of comradery.

Screwing with his work), an opportunity for her planned revenge on the Goro appears before her, but... 2: Squid Girl, having taken interest in some humans celebrating a birthday party, sets her own birthday and demands that they hold a party for her.

But when Squid Girl sees this, she...? 3: Eiko's classmate, Sanae, brings her dog Alex to play at the Lemon.

To the rest of the world, Umaru is kind, smart, and the perfect high school student.

Now, in addition to working full time to support their household...

Squid girl and Umaru-chan!? It's too good to be wrong! All of the similarities are there: the cuteness, the chibi, and like the guy above me, the annoyed caretaker.
I agree, their designs are based on animals, they have chibi forms, they annoy at least one person around them while also having a share of admirers and challengers, and suprisingly, squid girl is also somewhat of an otaku too.
Himouto Umaru-chan and squidgirl are pretty much the same anime with a few differences in flavor. Mostly because squidgirl is more fish based, and far more outside of reality. Squid girl is a little less lazy then Umaru, But with all the Ecchi stuff that has flooded the anime scene lately they are a nice island in a sea of boobs. Not that boobs are a bad thing but when the anime sells it'self on nothing past sex it gets rather dull pretty quick. These shows don't do that. They are more Oh my god that is so freakin cute I think I gotz daiahbeetis. And use that to comedic effect. They have a lot more in common then that just watch the intros of both of them and you will see that.
Miki is a psychotic mascot, waitress and delivery girl who works at her equally as frightening mother's ramen shop. Both survivor and instigator of years of ruthless, no-holds-barred domestic violence, Miki has a capacity for destruction usually found only in people with things like "the Impaler" added to their name. Yet, she also has a kind...

Slightly thick protagonist? Check. Restaurant humor? Check. Casual violence? Check. In addition, Muteki Kanban Musume also has multiple standalone (or loosely connected) installments within a single episode giving it a similar sense of timing. If you're looking for more fluffy, high energy humor in the same vein as Shinryaku! Ika Musume, you should give Miki and the gang a shot.
Both anime feature multiple random comedic short stories in each episode. While Ika Musume threatens world domination, she's pretty much held in check by Chizuru, whereas Miki's mother can only keep her in line through the occasional violent beating. The heroine's in both shows are lacking in the brilliance department. While Miki has more of a penchant for violence, Ika Musume has more of a naivety from having lived in the ocean her whole life. Both humorous shows, but while Ika Musume has more endearing characters Muteki Kanban Musume is a straight up gag anime.

Both of these rather moe titles are about strange happenings in normal settings. Sure, Kanamemo's strangeness is lesbians while ika musume's is the much more believable anthropomorphic squid girl. But other than that, these shows are about the slightly off daily life in a slightly off world.
That and they also have some rather serious bits too, also completely at random
