Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan (Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan) is a supernatural, comedy manga written and illustrated by Shuuichi Asou. The series began as a series of one-shot chapters in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump and Shueisha’s Jump Next! magazines in 2011, before being picked up as a full series under Weekly Shonen Jump in mid 2012. To date a total of 17 volumes have been published. An ONA was produced in late 2013 from Opera House (Pyuu to Fuku! Jaguar). The series has also inspired three voice comics, two novels and an appearance in the 2014 Shonen Jump’s J-Stars Victory VS video game. The series received a TV anime adaptation in Summer 2016, produced by EGG FIRM (First Major Production) and J.C. Staff (Bakuman., Toradora!) and directed by Hiroaki Sakurai (Di Gi Charat Nyo, Cromartie High School).
Here is the series synopsis from MAL:
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 second season of the Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan TV anime is in production and is set to premiere in early 2018. Further details about the new season will be revealed at a later date.
