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.

And so it begins. To distinguish between the short and the compliation episode, I will used Special for the shorts and Episode for the weekly compilation.

Special 1

It begins with Saiki being introduced, and while his power is a great gift, it is also seen as a curse. But he'll take the peaceful life even if there's no excitement to be found.

So going forward, I will plan to watch only the specials or the compilation, and not both. I'll watch both for the first week and if the compilation has any added footage, then I will watch those and not the specials.

I watched the second and third special today, so now I give my thoughts to both episodes.

Specials 2 and 3

Kusuo sure does have unusual parents there. And at school, there's one person whose mind he can't read in Nendou. His power of flame sure did come in handy when one of the kids was faking an illness. This show sure has been disastrous in a good way.

One thing you should know is that the name Saiki Kusuo is a pun name as the Saikiku part means psychic.

Special 4

Here comes the chuunibyou in Kaidou, the self-proclaimed Jet Black Wing. A snake is unleashed in class, and Kaidou stands in to try and stop it, but of course it's only in his mind that he has special powers. Meanwhile, Kusuo is just letting it unfold seeing that he can't let his fellow classmates know about his power, and he zaps that thing while Kaidou gets all the credit for it. That was quite a shock in a literal sense there seeing that snake being dealt with like that.

This series has been funny so far. And I like how it comes in small, daily doses.

MY NOTES / otherwise from Funimation

An anime that makes feel when I watched Sabagebu! Also Excel Saga / Nyarko /

The Disaster of Psi Kusuo Saiki Special 1 / The Disastrous Life of a Psychic (Part 1) FUNI

Very funny / and he is not kidding / his parents were funny

Kusuo Sasaki was born with supernatural powers. Thanks to his laid-back parents, he lived a fairly normal life. However, it turns out that having supernatural powers isn’t really all it’s cracked up to be.

The Disaster of Psi Kusuo Saiki Special 2 / The Disastrous Life of a Psychic (Part 2)

This is just funny asburd but I am ROFL really hard K tries to stay out of the fight but intervemes then to have it vackfire oh so much for the windows blown out which K's dad gets balmed for.

This is just funny asburd but I am ROFL really hard K tries to stay out of the fight but intervemes then to have it vackfire oh so much for the windows blown out which K's dad gets balmed for.

Although Kusuo’s parents are currently fighting each other, he tries to stay out of it since he thinks that it is a problem that they need to work out for themselves.



The Disaster of Psi Kusuo Saiki Special 3 / The Worst of the Worst?! Riki Nendou

OMG this is crazy / Rock Paper Scissors / If you liked Sakanoto this just as intense funny

Kusuo’s telepathic abilities allow him to read the thoughts of everyone around him. Everyone, that is, except for one particular individual...

The Disaster of Psi Kusuo Saiki Special 4 / Shun Kaidou, AKA The Jet-Black Wings

How to do anime homages correctly like Nyarko This was like a mock of One Punch Man / My Hero Axademia a snake gets loose ( ther;s an evangelion reference too ! and a a student (Shun Kaidou, AKA The Jet-Black Wings )who has 8th grade syndrome like ( YUTA /"Dark Flame Master" from Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions ) is made fun of but Shun goes away after a dangerous snake is caught or not but Kusuo goes to the bathroom too knowing thre real snake is in the classroom Oh Riki got bit in the jewels Then Shun hoes to srop the snake and Kusuo uses his powers to help Then Shun acts like ( Bakugo MHA

Shun Kaidou is another one of Kusuo’s classmates at PK Academy. He claims to have special powers and believes that there are dark forces at work that have evil plans for humanity.

This just keeps getting better each episode. MC's commentary is hilarious and reminds me very much of Araragi's, which I absolutely love.

Special 5

So after introducing Kusuo, his parents, Nendou, and Kaidou, this week's shorts ends with a girl in Teruhashi. She's got quite a crush on Kusuo, but he wants no part of it. He's lucky to escape without being suspicious about it. While she is cute, she can be a handful to deal with. So with that, the compilation episode comes on Sunday and let's see if there are any differences between them.

That last one with Teruhashi was pretty amusing, but funniest one so far was probably Nendou's intro episode.

The first compilation episode is up.

Episode 1

So difference between the shorts is that it has a proper opening, ending, and preview part, while there's an eye catch between each episode. As for actual content, I didn't notice any difference during the episode. Anyway, I'll just leave it at that and I'll watch both the shorts and the compilation for another week before deciding which one I'll go with as I plan to watch either one or the other, and not both.

Special 6

Kusuo is playing dodgeball, and seeing that he doesn't want to stick out that he decides to just get hit and that will be the end of it. But he got hit in the face apparently trying to catch the ball and as such, he's still in the game according to the face rule. And his paper team just gets bulldozed and they are down to one member. Kusuo sure wasn't expecting that and hence, his disastrous life continues on.

Just finished watching the first episode (with the first five parts). If you're looking for this season's LOL anime to replace Sakamoto and Gintama, this is it folks.

I expect a Sugita-voiced character to appear at some point.
