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.

Cool, haha. I remember seeing this guy in the game J-Stars Victory, but my cousin, who liked him, told me that there was not an anime of the series, which is famous for the main character not speaking a word throughout.

I like it when studios look at and give old, ignored series a chance. Now here's hoping the same will happen for Ubel Blatt~

btw how do you pronounce the character in the title?

Hell fucking yes, I've always been interested in this but too lazy to read the manga.

Too bad there are like 15 things next season I'm interested in ;_;.

Ono sama and Kamiya chwan!!! Of course I will be watching it! ALWAYS Love it when these two are in something together. Somehow those shows always end up being really good!! (Izaya and Shizuo, Levi and Erwin etc etc) So excited!!

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

Reading the synopsis and it looks like promising fun.

Definitely on my PTW.

Whoaaaah, been waiting for this since forever!!!
Saiki is the best, hope they'll adapt it well!
I had different sseyiuu in my mind but these are quite good as well.

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
