Synopsis

To the average person, psychic abilities might seem a blessing; for Kusuo Saiki, however, this couldn't be further from the truth. Gifted with a wide assortment of supernatural abilities ranging from telepathy to x-ray vision, he finds this so-called blessing to be nothing but a curse. As all the inconveniences his powers cause constantly pile up, all Kusuo aims for is an ordinary, hassle-free life—a life where ignorance is bliss.

Unfortunately, the life of a psychic is far from quiet. Though Kusuo tries to stay out of the spotlight by keeping his powers a secret from his classmates, he ends up inadvertently attracting the attention of many odd characters, such as the empty-headed Riki Nendou and the delusional Shun Kaidou. Forced to deal with the craziness of the people around him, Kusuo comes to learn that the ordinary life he has been striving for is a lot more difficult to achieve than expected.

OLD REVIEW WAS DELETED SINCE IT WAS POSTED TO SOON

-SPOILER FREE-
Saiki Kusuo no Ψ nan is a comedy slice-of-life story about Saiki Kusuo who has special powers that allow him to do pretty much anything.

The Episodes are not very long with around 4-5 min per episode but the episodes are coming out almost daily right now.

Story: 8/10
There is no core story as there is always another core in each episode, but the main story (that is that Saiki Kusuo has special powers) still affects all episodes.
There are some surprising moments that really catch you off guard and you never expected.

Art: 8/10
The art is very read more

You thought that having supernatural abilities would make your life easier and more enjoyable? Apparently, not for Saiki-kun.

Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan is an episodic anime with short, 5-minute, episodes with only comedic purpose. It doesn't really have a story, there is just the fact that Saiki is a psychic who actually finds his abilities annoying, while he tries to live a normal everyday life.

We, also, see Saiki's daily interactions with other characters, mainly his classmates and his parents. The characters are the best part of the show as they are all hilarious and you can never get enough of them. They all read more

I personally think that this is the best physic anime your probably ever going to watch. It has great comedy and this serious attitude of the character just makes it more hilarious. Of coarse this is my opinion you don't have to agree with it. It also has a certain comedy that probably only a few like. I don't like the fact that it's only 5 mins last time the made a anime out of it they only had one episode I'm not sure if the other adaption was a OVA or not. But I definite recommend this show I just hope it does read more

This incredible show can redefine how you view anime. My initial reaction, mentally, was to fault it for the continuous expositional dialogue from the protagonist. In visual media and in general in creative works, it's often a crutch substituting a good character introduction and development, but in Saiki Kusuo the stream-of-consciousness style grows on you as innovative and postmodern and eventually it plays on essential role to the themes of the anime. It's a really interesting narrative style that adds a lot to the characters.

The art style stands out as distinct but at the same time seems very natural. Something that stood out to me read more
