Kusuo Saiki is not your typical high schooler—behind his glasses, pink hair, and antenna-like appendages exists a being of unfathomable psychic power. Telekinesis, teleportation, and astral projection might sound exciting to the average person, but from Saiki's viewpoint, they are nothing but an annoyance. Psychic powers are unnecessary—this is all that Saiki has believed since he was a kid.

As a secret esper with the sole dream of living an ordinary life, Saiki tries to use his psychic abilities to stay out of the public's gaze. However, having to clean up after his odd classmates and their antics, all the while keeping his psychic powers a secret, makes it rather difficult to achieve the peaceful life he desires.

This was a manga I continuously skipped for a while til one holy day I decided to pick it up. So here's the review!
Story (9): It's an instant classic the moment I decided to read up chapter 1, all the jokes always hit right on mark, whenever it wants to bring in sad, cute, or any type of emotion to the story element, it always delivers. So essentially it was perfect up til the end... the ending left you off with a cliffhanger and so many questions, if felt as if there was supposed to be another chapter right after but nope, it just ends ...

This was my first ever manga that wasn't shoujo or had any sort of romance in it, and surprisingly I enjoyed it very much.

About the manga (general events, and characters):
The character you see with this pinkish-red hair and odd things on his head is the main character, "Saiki Kusuo". If you aren't into animes/mangas that don't have a big goal the characters work towards (like saving the world, killing a villain, or just graduating from school), this is NOT your thing.

If anything, it's very random, and sometimes even breaking the 4th wall, but very enjoyable nonetheless simply because it was vERY out of ...

Ahhh Saiki K., some consider it an absolute hidden gem within the dark valley magazine that is WSJ. Had this manga been axed sometime around chapter 100 or so I would agree, but there is no denying that at a certain point the quality seriously degraded with many characters either fading away, getting flanderized or shoved to the side so we introduce a new wacky addition that will eventually lose their whole charm for the sake of jokes that are really not all that funny in the first place anymore.

Let me start off with the good, Saiki himself as well as a majority of the ...
