Believe it or not, Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan had the most polarizing effect on me to date, and considering it is of a mere 16 minutes, that is quite something.
Now this one is a pretty odd stand-alone episode. The viewer is greeted with the most basics of animation. At first, I thought out to myself "What the hell? This has drawings worse than that of the two eternal classics, Mars of Destruction and Tenkuu Danzai Skelter+Heaven." The episode starts off with an angsty looking teen whose name is Shun Kaidou who seems like your average shounen MC. His talks are so cryptic as read more

After seeing that there was a new comedy anime out for this Summer that was getting pretty good reviews, I tried it and instantly loved it. Sadly, that anime was not this anime. What I watched was Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan (TV), the new series based off of the same manga, but done much, much, much differently than this.

Story: I honestly love the story. That's probably the best part of this adaptation. It's about a boy with supernatural abilities who just wants to live a normal life, a boy who wants to save the world from some mysterious organization and thinks he has super powers read more

Well... I don't really know where to start...

The saiki Kusuo no psi-nan ONA is clearly a very early anime adaptation of the manga, with the story, chatacters and the scenario being directly ripped out from the first volume. I cannot say that this is bad though, with comedic moments being really well executed and the characters captured almost perfectly.

However, this is nowhere as good as the official (proper, full, 2016) anime adaptation, which is why i cannot give this a higher rating. The art style is crude and very primitive, as well as the voice acting being very quite poor.

I have mixed emotions about this Saiki Kusuo OVA. The art is absolutely terrible, I have no idea if it was a team that worked on this or just one person. Unlike some bad art spots in the good anime actually making the anime funnier at points, here it doesn't add any value to the show. The pacing feels incredibly odd and makes the jokes feel stale. While the actual good Saiki anime feels perfectly paced which makes its jokes land perfectly, this OVA doesn't do that. What's odd about it is that you KNOW the jokes are funny, but instead of laughing you tell read more
