The 23rd issue of Weekly Shounen Jump of 2016, which will be released on May 9, has revealed that Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan will be receiving a TV anime adaptation set to premiere in July 2016. Some the anime's cast and staff members were also announced.

Director: Hiroaki Sakurai (Kaichou wa Maid-sama!)
Series Composition: Michiko Yokote (Gintama)
Character Design: Masayuki Onji (Aria The Avvenire)
Studio: J.C.Staff, Egg Firm

Kusuo Saiki: Hiroshi Kamiya (Shingeki no Kyojin)
Kuniharu Saiki: Mitsuo Iwata (Sakamoto desu ga?)
Kurumi Saiki: Rikako Aikawa (Nichijou)
Shun Kaidou: Nobunaga Shimazaki (Kiznaiver)
Riki Nendou: Daisuke Ono (Dimension W)

Saiki Kusuo has a wide array of superpowers at his command, including telepathy and telekinesis. This might sound awesome, but, in Kusuo's experience, superpowers are not all they're cracked up to be. He tries to live a normal life, despite his annoying abilities.

The series is drawn by Shuichi Asou and began publishing in May 2012. It previously received a flash anime adaptation in August 2013 and will also receive a live-action movie adaptation.

About time. This has been overdue tbh but looking forward to it. They picked a decent staff for this as well.

Cool, read the first 30 manga chapters a bit ago and found it enjoyable so I'll watch.

The ONA was kinda funny though the animation was bad....

J.C Staff and Hiroshi Kamiya?...this could be good, looking forward to it ^^

Cool. Is this Japanese X-Men?
Maybe I'll watch this.
But I'll read the manga first.


Wait, Is that a ball sack?
Then I won't watch it.
That's not even funny!

Finally! I've been waiting so much for this...
It really sounds like my type of series, but the manga scas are pretty slow so I've just been waiting for an adaptation xD

And another on my ptr gets an adaptation.

Been somewhat curious about it for a few years now, but was put off by the apparently slow scans.

Oh wow, I expected the adaptation, but not as soon as summer. And Kamiyan as Saiki :o

Fuck yesss!!!

Finally a decent Gag Manga that I wanted for adaptation...

Hope JC Staff can handle this well, 'cause they're really busy in Summer.

Kamiyan as Kusuo is alright, it will be hilarious.

Can't wait for Summer!!!

Why the fuck not, I'll give it a try. It looks somewhat interesting.

I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

Awesome news. Very solid staff and Hiroshi Kamiya as the protagonist, who is one of my favourite VAs. Looking forward to this.

ABOUT TIME! I haven't actually read the manga but it's fairly old for a successful WSJ manga that never got an anime. And now. it has come. finally. Kamiya and J.C. Staff, this will be great.

JC Staff is animating this, the plot looks interesting and the cast is great. Summer 2016 will going to be very good indeed.

I've been enjoying the manga SO MUCH, but the scans is just too slow.
Now I can't wait for the anime adaptation!!

Pretty excited about the news, though I was really hoping for Takamatsu would be the director. Can't complain though since it finally hapened. I hope the anime will make it popular enough to make the scanlations be a bit faster.

Doesn't sound overly interesting really. I'm definitely not as excited as everyone else at the very least.

Really interested about this one, glad it got a proper anime adaptation, I've been hearing from the people who read the manga that it has some really good comedy, like Gintama level comedy.

I'll have to check it out.

F*ck Yeh! Was hoping this would be the big annoucement! So hyped for this and it releases so soon too! That has to be one of the closest announcements to air date. Hopefully now someone picks up the manga. Its about damn time!

JC Staff is truly becoming one of those great consistent studios FOR ME. Might replace them with Madhouse for a studio binge this summer.

I've only read one or two chapters of the manga and I've watched the trash ONA that they did. But I really want to watch the anime. And more hype if Kamiya is the main seiyuu. :D

as soon as I hear the words 'Shounen Jump' my interest ends. It sound very generic but JC Staff are a good studio so It might be decent but im getting tired of Shounen shows in general.

The manga cover seems very familiar; I've probably seen this manga somewhere, but didn't get around of it. Will watch the anime, that's for sure.

I wonder how the reception would be if it was called seinen instead, all the cool mature wannabes will flood the place XD

just started reading this yesterday, up to chapter 5. this is awesome!

P.S. before the comparisons of sakamoto begin, remember that he actually has superpowers and sakamoto doesn't so it doesn't count to compare :3

Saiki is the best, hope they'll adapt it well!
I had different sseyiuu in my mind but these are quite good as well.

Was planning on reading the manga at some point, but guess I'll watch the anime before it instead.
