In a fit of silliness, I decided to try statting Ika Musume.

Anthropomorphic squid was my first thought... then I realised I'd have to apply amphibious so she could breathe on land. Then I noticed that only giant octopi/squid get separate tentacle attacks, but anthro giant squids are Large. So dungeonbred has to go in there somewhere.

Plus, two of an anthropomorphic animal's limbs become legs, so she would end up with eight tentacles. And that's just not right. It's questionable whether you can graft arms on to a squid then apply the template.

Have a permanencied extend tentacles cast on yourself. Lv6 Ika's reach is 20ft, and the lv9 version has 25ft. Manifesting expansion provides +10ft, while reach gives +5ft.
Thicket of Blades represents Ika with all her tentacles out, Roots of the Mountain is when she increases her weight.

If retraining is allowed, swap out Illithid Skin for Practiced Manifester (psychic warrior). The Illithid feats will continue to provide each others' prerequisites.

Chizuru is obviously an epic level half-fiend gestalt warblade/barbarian.
