After a bit of practice, I'm able to consistently beat the level. Thanks for everything

Good to see you cleared it!  Yeah, that last swing is pretty tricky, it definitely needs some practise to do it reliably.  (I do feel kind of bad saying that, given you have to wait so long for the crab to do its thing.)

Does the crab go away after a while like the tadpole or does it keep moving back and forth even after it breaks all the blocks? Here's some gameplay (watch the last attempt for the closest I got) https://www.twitch.tv/videos/136334113

Edit: never mind, I got it (although I had to rewatch your video while I was recording), turns out I was grabbing the wrong place. Then I tried doing it without watching your video and died so guess I need more practice

If you're not doing this, I would suggest standing on the edge on the right side and shooting your line straight down to hit the eggs as the crab releases them.  You do need to time your shots well, which will take some practise, but the more you can hit this way before they're floating around everywhere, the better.  I think the most important thing is to pay attention to the movement of the crab's pincers in relation to your first shot; from replaying it a couple of times, you should make your first shot when it's moved its pincers back and forth twice.
 
If you're interested, I have a video up on YouTube where I hit all but one of the eggs this way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzvSyuC6W1o

Hope that helps!

I've been trying to beat the stupid crab boss for days now, and while I get pretty close sometimes (1 or 0 platforms left), I can never manage to do it. Any tips?

Oh, awesome, thank you!  I will use it -- I've never been too happy with my cover scan, this one is much better.

Just got a copy of "Umihara Kawase Hyper Technique" in. It was around 2000 yen on YJA, but ended up being around $32 or so after all the Buyee fees. Anyway, here's a better quality scan of the cover in case you want to use it on the site. I would scan the rest, but I only have a flatbed scanner and it's in pretty much new condition so I don't want to mess up the binding.
