Average Rating

To the average person, psychic abilities might seem a blessing; for Kusuo Saiki, however, this couldn't be further from the truth. Gifted with a wide assortment of supernatural abilities ranging from telepathy to x-ray vision, he finds this so-called blessing to be nothing but a curse. As all the inconveniences his powers cause constantly pile up, all Kusuo aims for is an ordinary, hassle-free life—a life where ignorance is bliss. Unfortunately, the life of a psychic is far from quiet. Though Kusuo tries to stay out of the spotlight by keeping his powers a secret from his classmates, he ends up inadvertently attracting the attention of many odd characters, such as the empty-headed Riki Nendou and the delusional Shun Kaidou. Forced to deal with the craziness of the people around him, Kusuo comes to learn that the ordinary life he has been striving for is a lot more difficult to achieve than expected.

Perhaps the funniest comedy I’ve ever seen. A colorful, lovable cast and a hilariously stoic main character.


Consistently-hilarious comedy driven heavily by its fantastic set of wacky characters and Saiki’s commentary on his daily life.


I couldn’t stop laughing, it’s a very good comedy.


my god i absolutely love this, hilarious


If you think psychic powers are fun, you’re wrong!


The story of a young man who has it all… and the struggles that this brings to him. This series is hilarious. A daily dose is recommended.


Best comedy I’ve seen, actual quality jokes, a surprisingly large great cast, and fantastic dub!
