Vol. 2 - Ein Tintenfisch rennt los!

Inki - Get set, go, Octopus!

Inki wants to sign up for a race in Calmaria, but his friend Seelina is sceptical. She doesn’t think that an octopus like him has a chance of outstripping the other fish, but Inki decides to enter the race anyway. During training, he sees the mean swordfish threaten the sailfish, who’s faster, telling not to overtake him in the race. Inki is definitely not going to let him get away with that! And so he comes up with a plan just after the starting shot has been fired...
