Oh man. Is it really here? The final chapters of Saiki Kusuo No Psi-nan: Kanketsu-hen? Believe it, people. Nothing lasts forever and good things will eventually come to an end. Heh. Looks like we’ve been preparing ourselves for this inevitable day since the second season. So if you still remember that prelude to the final episode in that second season, this is it. Saiki using his psychic powers to save the world or risk another time loop and hence another season? Well, try not to delude myself. I’m no psychic anyhow.

Episode 1A
Saiki and friends are evaluating what they want to do in life. Like Nendou wanting to marry some famous seiyuu… Hairo wants to be a teacher but when Kuboyasu also mentions the same, nobody believes him! Yumehara tries to write down the same universities that Kaidou goes even though it is way out of her league. The power of love will see them through! Everybody tries to guess Saiki’s choices but they feel disappointed they turn out normal. And if you think it is a coincidence that Teruhashi wrote the same choices, well, see the pencil and eraser evidence she left behind?

Episode 1B
Kuusuke has created an exact replica of Saiki, Kusuomega. This means his character is exactly the same. He unleashes it in school and Saiki needs to get rid of it when no one is looking. Too bad this Saiki is attracting everyone. He has to solve this fast because Kuusuke has programmed Kusuomega to run naked through the halls at noon. Luck is on Saiki’s side as Toritsuka has bought his favourite jello. Saiki has him use it as bait to lure Kusuomega to the roof where Saiki ultimately smashes it. Now can Saiki have the jello? Although Kuusuke rues to loss of Kusuomega, at least he has obtained data on Toritsuka.

Episode 1C
Saiki knows something is wrong when Toritsuka is missing for a week. He is actually captured by Kuusuke and being brainwashed to hate Saiki. Kuusuke makes them fight but Saiki easily knocks him out. However this is a ploy because when Saiki knocked Toritsuka out, the latter’s spirit transferred into his body. Yeah, Toritsuka is going to strip naked and run out! Saiki riles up the martial artist ghost that is possessing Toritsuka’s body to hit Saiki’s body. It might not be enough to kick his spirit out, but Toritsuka is back to his senses and destroys the device forcing his hate on Saiki.

Episode 1D
Now Kuusuke faces off with Saiki. Since there is a bomb in this building, Saiki must defeat him while not touching the building and blowing up his friend. Flashback reveals about their twisted contest that started ages ago. Saiki’s powers could have saved the world but Kuusuke thought publishing them would be against his wish so he suggested a contest. If he can take out his controlling device, Kuusuke wins. But as we have seen, Kuusuke has failed to best him despite all his inventions throughout the years. But this rant allows Saiki to flick Kuusuke away and part of the building destroyed. He knows the bomb is fake thanks to Aiura’s fortune telling that she couldn’t see Toritsuka die. Plus, it isn’t like Kuusuke to use a hostage for this fight. But now Kuusuke returns taking the final fight in this cat tank? Yup, he is using his own body as hostage.

Episode 1E
So now it becomes a battle to steal each other’s device to see who the winner is. Saiki has a chance but because he put the device on his crotch area, he is hesitant to take it, hence giving Kuusuke enough time to recover. Saiki is reduced to avoiding as Kuusuke fires, turning the building into Swiss cheese. Saiki is getting tired but the tank replenishes its energy via electricity. Toritsuka saves the day by taking Kuusuke’s device. It could have been Saiki’s win after picking it up and even claiming he let himself exhausted to control his overwhelming strength. But he calls it even by giving him his device since it was made by him and without it, he couldn’t have gotten this far. He is willing to give up his normal life if he causes so much trouble. So goodbye to his high school life! Here’s the real punch line. Kuusuke reveals he turned the device off many years ago! He thought he shouldn’t sacrifice his little brother just to benefit mankind even if Saiki’s powers do that. Besides, no need to go public with his power since he has finished a device to completely erase all his powers! But Saiki isn’t going to use that yet since he has something to do first.

Episode 2A
The usual gang gathers to discuss their much anticipated trip. Even much more anticipated because they’re going to discuss it at Teruhashi’s house! But for the umpteenth time, Saiki has to wonder why he is dragged into this. Not like he is going to go, right? Until he learns they want to go to this Oshimai town. Hey, wait. Are they making a pun of the end?! No matter what Saiki suggests, they keep going back to this Oshimai place. The reason he doesn’t want this place is because there is a volcano called Owari (yup, they’re making puns of it) that is scheduled to erupt and hence causing the deadliest volcano eruption in all of Japan. Saiki agrees as long as it is not on a certain date. Guess what? Everybody is busy except on that date! Now, with everyone wondering if Saiki is really busy on that day and that they’ll have to reschedule, Saiki doesn’t want to be viewed as the guy who ruined the trip and reluctantly agrees.

Episode 2B
So all our gang is here in Oshimai. What a fun day. Too bad the hotel reservations they book is missing. So the blame game begins. Eventually all point to Hairo since he too tried to pass on responsibility! Anyway, are they going to sleep on the streets? Nobody is going to join you in your camp, Mera. But thank goodness Saiko is here. If they prostrate themselves, maybe he’ll let them stay. I think they rather keep their pride. So out of the goodness of his heart, Saiko lets them stay in his deluxe suite hotel! Wow. This guy really had a change of heart. But the day isn’t over for Saiki yet.

Episode 2C
Saiki has called Aiura and Toritsuka to help. Previously, Aiura and Saiki’s clones tried to suppress the eruption but it ended in failure. The plan is for Toritsuka to stand in as Saiki. His pals will see this spirit medium as Saiki’s face. Aiura and Saiki’s clones are stationed at where the eruptions are going to be. The problem of suppressing is that when you suppress one part, the pressure will be moved to somewhere else and no matter how many clones you have, it will eventually explode. So as Kuusuke suggested, teleport the magma out into space! Everything seems to go in order till the final eruption that is too much for the clones to handle. Saiki chips in with his power. He is adamant to end all this today.

Episode 2D
Hooray! Saiki manages to teleport the magma into outer space! But he was so focused on this that he didn’t see what is coming next. His friends all see this. They are confused there are 2 of him. So how did Toritsuka screw up? Well, the friends are already suspecting if he is the real Saiki since he was trying too hard to imitate Saiki. Then Saiko was flying his helicopter over the volcano and saw Saiki. So he thought of telling his friends and bringing them all here. How is Saiki going to get out of this? Toritsuka says they are twins! Yeah, those clones… Sextuplets! With Kaidou hounding Saiki to say something, surprisingly it is Nendou who won’t force his friend to talk. He can tell them when he is ready. Either way, he is still their friend. Will they still be his friend if they force him to talk? Oh Nendou, you sure say the darnest surprising things.

Episode 2E
With everyone agreeing to this, suddenly Yumehara confesses she likes Kaidou. Aiura notes that they will still be Saiki’s friends even if he tells them the truth. Flashback shows in an alternate past, they too didn’t mind after he revealed he was a psychic. For the first time, Saiki opened his mouth to talk to them and a truly nice smile!!! Suddenly Saiki disappears? It seems he leapt a day back to fix things and prevent them from seeing his power. Too bad this means Yumehara’s confession was in vain. Saiki is now ready to use Kuusuke’s device to erase his powers. Only after that he will tell his friends he was an ex-psychic? Too bad his parents are sad he is going to give up his powers. Can’t rely him for errands now, can they? In the aftermath and start of the new school year, Saiki truly lost his powers. He is in the same class and sitting next to Teruhashi! He doesn’t mind because he can’t read her mind but we all can tell that she scored big. When Teruhashi thought Saiki told her to meet at a classroom, she thought it was finally going to be a confession. To her disappointment, all the usual characters are called here too. Looks like Saiki is resolved to reveal his ex-psychic powers. But before that could happen, he freaks out seeing a cockroach, causing the window to break. Oh dear… Could it be still…?

Yare, Yare… Last Hurrah Postponed Due To Unforeseen Circumstances…
Good grief! WTF?! What the heck is this abrupt ending?! I was thinking there was going to be some sort of twist since you know, the series likes to pull a fast one like this many times. However I must say that this feels disappointing. Are they supposed to leave us to our own imaginations that Saiki still has his psychic powers intact and that he backs out of exposing it to his friends? Then everything returns back to normal and status quo and life goes on for Saiki and his friends. The end. Yeah, pretty cliché ending if it does end this way. But as I read on further over the internet, it seems this wasn’t really the real ending. Before the series really ended, there were actually 2 more chapters! So the authors really trolled us, huh? Unless those final chapters get animated, I guess those who don’t read the manga will never know. Is this their way to make those curious of wanting to know the real ending to go buy the final volumes? But then again, they may troll us again by animating them in the future. Or not. I hope it would be the former. Please, please and double please. One more Saiki episode for me?

But as far as this final arc is concerned, I guess they wrap things up nicely albeit not perfect. The spontaneous jokes are still there, the quirky personalities of the weird characters are still there and Saiki being Saiki till the very end until he opens his mouth and talk. So to say that everybody was assuming what he wants or they’ve been hearing only voices in their head? Saiki settling the eternal rivalry with Kuusuke as well as saving the world that in turn proves his friends are really his true friends. You know what they say about the birds of the same feather flock together? I’m sure you noticed that even Saiki doesn’t want to join his pals in many things they do, he eventually does. Somehow. Saving the world, wanting the quiet normal life, avoid his identity being busted are just excuses to cover up that maybe he just wants to hang out with friends. I’m sure nobody here is going to have a drastic change. Saiki will still be Saiki and everybody else will continue to be everybody else in their own peculiar way. Maybe Saiko. He isn’t as snobbish as before. Though he still can be irritating flaunting his riches. Bait to attract friends? Friendships are earned, not bought!

If I really wanted to nit-pick about these final chapters, I would point out that many other characters didn’t make their appearance. For this kind of series, I thought they’d be able to pull off a final scene showing a huge group photo of just about everybody (no, not just in the credits). Yeah, I suppose they did that at the end of the previous season so don’t want to spam it all here in this. For example, Saiki’s grandparents. I thought they are ‘important’ enough to warrant some 1 second cameo. At least Rifuta and Akechi got that. Not that it matters anyway, right? Uh huh. Me b*tching that even if they get a few seconds screen time, I’ll be saying it is better they don’t because they’re insignificant. WTF?! Am I trying to be some contradicting clown here?! Oh, I remember. Good thing Mugami didn’t appear because he’s so annoying… ;p.

Overall, this series has been one funny and entertaining ride from start to finish. I love the short simplistic story with no confusing plots as well as all the bizarre characters that help enhanced the funny moments. It really did what it had to do and that was to make us laugh no matter how silly and impossible it may seem. Now Saiki can carry on with his normal high school life without being worried us viewers are watching and laughing at his every move and decision. RIP Saiki! Heh. Did I sound like I just killed off the main character? But who knows? In the future Saiki may just return just to troll and surprise us. A normal adult life? A dystopian future? An alternate parallel world setting?! Who knows for sure? I’m not a psychic. But I still do keep my fingers cross that Saiki would one day come back just for old times’ nostalgia’s sake. Will he? Yare, yare…

Saiki Kusuo No Psi-nan S2

December 29, 2018

If you can’t get enough of the crazy characters who keep bugging a certain psychic kid who just wants to lead a normal and quiet live, be glad there is more. Saiki Kusuo No Psi-nan S2 is going to be as wacky and hilarious as its predecessor with more psycho antics that would seemingly threaten to reveal our titular character. He is always one and many steps ahead but can that last forever? Stay tuned as we find out. But for Saiki, I think he already knows the conclusion to it all.

Episode 1A
Saiki trolls us with a Gintama crossover! Thankfully it is just a short one. He makes his way to school and stumbles into the usual gang of idiots. As usual they continue to gather around and bug him. It ends with an unexpected Gintama crossover punch line.

Episode 1B
Saiki doesn’t want to spend another disastrous Christmas night with his family. So as he hangs out alone at the park, he sees Takahashi in a pinch as he dropped a Christmas cake he is supposed to deliver. Yeah, that guy has to work tonight and will get his pay docked for every cake he messed up. But what’s worse is that Saiki senses Nendou and Kaidou wanting to come to his place to party and Teruhashi joining in. With the crowd spotting Mugami and chasing him, Saiki sees this and teleports back home. Only, his friends are already waiting in his room ready to celebrate.

Episode 1C
Saiki is alone on New Year’s Day. He feels there is a conspiracy because on every channel he turns on, one of his idiotic friends is on the channel! From Nendou in that millionaire quiz show to Mera in an eating contest to Hairo playing baseball. Finally the biggest troll of them all: This anime running now on TV!

Episode 1D
Toritsuka begs Saiki once more to use his power to help him win Aiko’s heart. Of course he won’t and conveniently dumps him to Hairo under the pretence this lecher wants to join the tennis club. Oh lucky, Aiko is also a tennis club member. Toritsuka tries to look good but sucks thanks to Saiki interfering. But as he tries his best on his own, it looks like he could play decently. But why Aiko isn’t impressed? Saiki reveals Aiko liked him from the start but that is only because he is useless. That is why he was trying to help. Now that he looks competent, she is going to forget about him. Bummer.

Episode 1E
Saiki transforms himself into a girl so he could eat a dessert buffet only open for ladies. Too bad Teruhashi, Yumehara and Mera are there. He can’t get away. There are times when his real identity may be busted because the girls think he is acting so much like Saiki. Then they try to talk about their crushes. Saiki gets up to leave and accidentally drops his books out of his bag. The girls see the name on the book. Why does ‘she’ have Saiki’s stuffs? Oh no. Could it be ‘she’ is Saiki’s little sister? Yeah. Let’s go with that.

Episode 2A
Saiki is forced to hear his parents’ rant how they met since today is their anniversary. It sounded like dad is such a hot guy who saved mom from a ruffian. Hard to believe, right? After he goes to bed, Kuusuke calls to inform the parents that one of Saiki’s antenna is defective. Next morning, Saiki wakes up with his room on a tree! As he walks around, he realizes he has gone back to the past. Because this dude isn’t Nendou but his father! Also, the fashion sense of the people in that era. Saiki realizes he made a terrible mistake that changed timeline. Because he bumped into Nendou’s dad, he avoided bumping into Saiki’s mom that would have led to Saiki’s dad rescuing her. At least that was the story he was being told.

Episode 2B
Realizing he won’t be born from this aftermath, he conspires with Nendou’s dad to hit on her. In the meantime, trying to get his pathetic dad to make his move to save his future wife. In the end, not exactly the way it should have turned out but at least dad ‘saved’ mom and he hit it off. Now, everything should have returned to normal as Saiki returns to his original timeline. Guess what? A decimated dystopia!!!

Episode 2C
Saiki explains the butterfly effect. Something about because of your interference that wasn’t supposed to be in the original, you can never get back to your original timeline. He bumps into punk Toritsuka to reveal about the details about World War III due to some invention created by Kuusuke. Saiki is shocked to learn that in this timeline, he is dead! Saiki goes to see his brother and learns the invention he created that people started fighting over: A time machine. Though, it could only go back one day. Now we see Saiki returning to the exact timeline he is. But why is he paying intense intention to his parents’ story? Using the time machine back and forth, a day at a time, he is trying to listen and see if he has returned to the correct timeline. Phew.

Episode 2D
Kuboyasu tries to give up his thug life but it seems there are other punks who aren’t willing to allow that. So they continue to pick a fight with him but in the end they got beaten up as Kuboyasu reverts to his extreme gangster style. But the moment for him to change for good is when he receives a love letter. He takes this chance to meet this girl and change. Turns out to be a trap by a few punks to get him to fight. They’re going to regret it… Kuboyasu has become so disillusioned after this, he became a badass that nobody dared picked a fight with him for a while.

Episode 2E
Saiki is out buying clothes when unfortunately Nendou and Kaidou are also here. Don’t bother asking these guys with lousy fashion sense. Suddenly it becomes a competition between the duo who has the better fashion sense and Saiki will be the judge. They’re both losers. With Teruhashi now in the picture, they have this idea to pick clothes for her to wear and Saiki will as usual be the judge. Kaidou goes first with his bizarre ‘warrior’-like outfit. Fail. Though it made other females want to try it out. Nendou is anticipating putting Teruhashi in a very skimpy cowboy outfit and since Saiki saw through his plan, he quickly switches with normal clothes. Looks pretty good on her. She’ll buy whatever he picks! Saiki has left, only to realize he hasn’t bought his own clothes.

Episode 3A
Today is extra chilly. If you think outside is cold, wait till you get inside class. It’s colder! Don’t worry, we have a human heater: Hairo! Don’t stop exercising! Normally it would be okay to just skip class and go home but since some famous comedian, Peanuts Ueda (who the f*ck?!) is coming later, everyone else decides to stay! Because of that, everyone pulls up their jersey covering their face, forming some sort of new fashion. By the time this comedian arrives, he tells the lamest joke. Yeah, it’s so cold in here…

Episode 3B
Saiki is forced to hand notes to Saiko. Oh, Nendou, Kaidou and Kuboyasu tag along too. With them being so awed at his high class luxurious mansion, Saiko thought of showing off to make them acknowledge he is much better than them. But all of them only have this commoner expression and they expect something fantastical or futuristic. In other words, not really impressed. So after they leave, Saiko vows to show them a house that will knock them off their feet.

Episode 3C
Hence Saiko forcefully invites all of them again. This time his mansion has turned into a futuristic amusement park! He guides them around as they all have fun. In the end, they are so happy that they want to invite him to their house next time to show how commoners have fun. This puts Saiko in a bind. He spent so much money and time researching on them just to achieve what? And they’re more entertained than impressed? Is this victory worth it? They realize that Nendou has been missing ever since they started entering this place. It seems he has been stuck at the gate. He is the only one who thinks this isn’t any fun at all.

Episode 3D
With the heavy snow, school is of course cancelled. Saiki thought he could sleep in but Nendou and Kaidou are here to invite him to build a snowman. Normally he would decline them but he sees visions of them being killed. Seriously. So he hangs out with them just to keep watch. Any impending danger, Saiki is able to ward them off without anybody noticing. Finally when the snowman is done and there is nothing else to do, the duo suggest one more thing to do: Pretend to be dead! The vision came true… So much time wasted…

Episode 3E
With the start of the new term, Saiki and co will be second years. Too bad he notices the third years are all weird looking people whom none he recognized at all. Did they really school here? Saiki notices a graduating class with names beginning with only ‘A’ and a senior whom Yumehara once fell in love with but is more like leeching off her money. Shockingly, Kaidou gives his speech as representative year and personally thanks Mineo Nobuaki AKA Alphonse Calcifer Raiden! Who the f*ck?! It’s probably this guy that introduced Kaidou to his chuunibyou world. Saiki notes the only senior he will recognize is Kongou. But he has changed so much from a gangster dude to a prim and proper student that he is barely recognizable! Who the f*ck?! Then everyone starts getting emotional as they sing the school’s anthem. Yeah, weird song. Should have been used in a tokusatsu series instead.

Episode 4A
Imu Rifuta thinks she is hell of a cute and the world revolves around her. It’s no surprise that the guys really like her. Until Nendou points out Teruhashi is cuter. An argument ensues but her fans seem to paint Teruhashi in a higher light. This has Rifuta wanting to see this Teruhashi girl. Woah! Such an angel! Even more so Rifuta realizes she causes guys to fight with each other but Teruhashi has them make peace! With Teruhashi treating her nicely but getting better stuffs than her, Rifuta runs away as she cannot take it anymore that somebody is better than her. Turns out it is a devious ploy by Teruhashi to teach her the harsh truth that the world does not revolve around her!

Episode 4B
Kaidou is having fun telling April Fools jokes until people start accusing him of going too far. However Nendou still believed some laser beam shooting tower crap thingy and has bought a camera to take a picture of it. He accidentally drops it, threatening to fall over Kaidou but Saiki uses his power to miss him and have a soft landing. This amazes Kaidou as he tries to tell everyone about it but nobody believes. He demonstrates again but this time the camera really breaks. Now they accuse him of being a true liar but the laser beam is starting to shoot from the tower! Thank Saiki for that.

Episode 4C
Saiki has allergies but each time he sneezes, something precious from his dad explodes! It’s too much of a coincidence to call it random. While some pills do hold back his sneeze, he has to take them periodically. However Nendou wants him to see his sneezing face and won’t let him take the pills. Too bad Saiki sneezes and the pills explode! He needs to get out but Nendou is still hell bent on showing that face. He is even trying to use a bouquet of pollens! Saiki knocks him out but before he could teleport, his sneeze causes a hole in the wall. This alerts everyone else but Saiki manages to cover up using pollens as a smokescreen to repair the wall.

Episode 4D
Hairo and the gang are to pick up trash but it is also a competition as depending on what kind of trash you pick up, you earn certain points. Kaidou believes everyone is in it for the big prize money in the end as the one who gets the most points wins it. Some shady dude tries to coax them to join his side and pick up cigarette butts since it is worth the most points. But Hairo’s pride will not allow it and so he rejects him. With Hairo’s enthusiasm, they could have easily run away with the lead but he is so particular in picking up every darn trash that is small in points too. Not to mention, Kaidou is just freaking clumsy. Lost some points there… That shady guy returns and has a trash bag full of cigarette butts. He brags about it so Saiki ignites and burns the whole lot. In the end, the winner is some family because they picked up a corpse of a dead tsuchinoko. WTF…

Episode 4E
Toritsuka offered to help solve ghost rumours of the piano playing at night in the music room. Of course he needs Saiki help too. Turns out to be a girl who has a great attachment to it. Toritsuka wants to flirt with her but she rather die than date him. Ghost joke. Eventually she realizes she is causing others to be scared and leaves. The next day, the piano is removed since many students complained about the hauntings. Toritsuka won’t give up and has Saiki do him one more favour. While we hear the backstory that it belonged to some family who donated it 20 years ago and the daughter who played it passed away due to illness, we see Toritsuka has not given up on the piano and has it moved into his room! So cramped. But I don’t think ghost girl is coming back…

Episode 5A
Rifuta still plays second fiddle to Teruhashi. Whatever she does, Teruhashi is always tops. When asked about Saiki, Teruhashi suddenly loses her balance. Rifuta gets it that she likes him and has finally found her trump card to best her. So she tries to hint she wants to date Saiki to throw her off and Rifuta relishes seeing the almost panicky face she puts. Of course this is all part of Saiki’s plan. He would look like he is with Rifuta until Teruhashi gives up. Once Rifuta believes she has won over her, there is no more reason for her to be with him. Killing 2 birds with a stone. As expected, Rifuta approaches him. She is thrilled he ‘chose’ her instead of Teruhashi. But it looks like Rifuta is starting to genuinely like Saiki. He looks so cool in her vision! Another cans of worms opened…

Episode 5B
Saiki’s parents’ birthday as just a day apart. So it is obvious they lie to each other about going their way when it’s to get the other presents. Saiki peeks on what they are going to buy and it’s definitely questionable. So mom got him a display case to put all her past presents to him. On the other hand, he got her a huge teddy bear. But wait. How can he afford that? He sold her past presents to buy it. Also, she moved the sewing kit to make room for the shelf and hence can’t put together the teddy bear. So are their presents useless? They start crying but it is tears of happiness that they love each other so much that they sell their precious things for each other. Yeah, the power of love is in the feelings not the presents!

Episode 5C
An arrogant hamster tries to make Saiki adopt him. He doesn’t need to oblige so the hamster panics and reveals he wanted to see the world but regrets how dangerous it is. Now it is lost and can’t get home. Since he is not from this area, Saiki can’t help. Beg all you want. Amp tries to up the hamster but after being flattered by the furball, Amp who knows where it lives decides to bring it there. You think the hamster would be happy to be reunited with its original master. Too bad that kid has bought a new hamster pet and is very happy with it.

Episode 5D
Saiki now has this obligation to find the hamster a new owner. Hairo: Too much training! Kaidou: Too much chuunibyou! Yumehara: Can’t stop blabbing! Ever! Teruhashi: Oh, she has a cat. Nendou is their last hope and logically this is the worst of the lot. Is it doomsday for little Hamtaro? Well, don’t judge a book by its cover because Nendou is pretty good in taking care of the hamster as he owned one before. Before you know it, the hamster is so attached to this dude.

Episode 5E
Kuusuke sends an electric massage chair to his family. Literally shocking. When the parents try to massage Saiki’s shoulder, it is as stiff as a rock! No, an iron vault! You can blame the past seasons for all his stress. Dad has an idea to beat him up using stuffs but why does it feel like revenge? Anyway, anything he uses breaks! Even metal stuffs! Mom even tries to stab him but it didn’t work! Dad borrows an impact rammer and surprisingly Saiki feels good. But anymore vibration and the house will be destroyed. So he teleports himself to some riverside and destroy rocks to let its broken bits rain on his shoulders. It is perfect until he realizes an old woman watching him. He teleports back to the house where he accidentally sits on the electric massage chair. But wait. The electricity literally cured his aches! Now he can really move! So light! But so powerful that he puts a hole in the house.

Episode 6A
Saiko brags about his weekend luxury liner cruise. He will invite the boys if they get Teruhashi to come. So they did and Mera and Yumehara also joined. Saiki assumed he isn’t in since the head count is supposed to include Hairo. Too bad he is busy with his club activities and Saiki lost his chance to decline. So as they board the ship, it seems Saiki read Saiko’s mind of what happened last night. The ship is under maintenance and won’t be finished in time. Saiko told them to finish it or get fired. And hence the ship split apart during the voyage and now they are in some uninhabited island.

Episode 6B
Did Saiki not see this coming? Apparently there were bad omens but somehow he chose to ignore them. Although Saiko claims his ship has the best tracking system and in no time they will be rescued, only Saiki knows they are not near Japan waters. Saiki remembers what happened. Last night when they were trying to stop Mera from raiding the fridge, somehow Saiki got seasick.

Episode 6C
As they put him to bed, Teruhashi accidentally took off his antenna. That’s why the ship split and Saiki woke up then, used all his powers to save everyone but somehow teleported them to an island near South America. This means no help will come to them. Of course Saiki can teleport them back but it will raise suspicions about his powers. With their food running out, suddenly Mera returns as a native!

Episode 6D
So apparently she raided all that’s left of their emergency food and is giving them poisonous mushrooms as apology? Make sure you eat up. Yeah, Mera can’t even speak human tongue. But Saiki saves them because he teleported back to town and bought foodstuffs and make it look like they washed up ashore. Nendou then has an idea to build a raft. Saiki agrees to it since in the middle of the ocean he can teleport near Japan waters without anyone noticing. However it seems they lack the necessary manpower to build a raft even if Saiki has bought and accidentally washed up the tools. Yeah, Saiko is being a dick not wanting to help.

Episode 6E
Not even Teruhashi could use her charm and get this guy to help. He is too proud to stoop to a commoner’s standard. Mera is caught trying to steal their food again. This time she has degraded into an animal. But treating her with food, she is finally tamed. Now they have the necessary manpower to build the raft. At night, Saiki inspects the raft and knows it isn’t seaworthy. So he makes some adjustments so the logs can stick together and it doesn’t have to float as long as he is around he can use his powers to do so.

Episode 7A
Saiko hasn’t eaten for 2 days and he still refuses the charity of others and won’t eat their junk food. He goes on to reveal about his stubbornness that led to the sinking of the ship because it was still under maintenance. This only serves to make the rest hell bent on making him eat. With Saiko regaining his strength, now he joins in to help make the raft. Albeit, he is just ordering around. Once done, Saiko points who is going to remain on the island. If they are all on the raft, what if the rescue team comes here and finds no one? Besides, the raft team can go and get help for those who remained on the island. This throws a spanner in Saiki’s pan.

Episode 7B
So the gang deliberates on who gets to stay or go. With their silly reasoning and all, finally the ones who will take the raft are Nendou, Mera, Saiko and Kuboyasu. So will we have some love romance between Saiki-Teruhashi and Kaidou-Yumehara on the island? Not if Saiki has his own ulterior motive…

Episode 7C
Just before the raft team sails off, suddenly the rescue team finds them! Of course this was all Saiki’s doing. The night before when everyone was sleeping, he teleported part of the island to a nearby Japan island. Hence the island they are on is just a partial replica. However back in school, things are not over yet. Rumours spread like wildfire that the 8 of them got stranded. Even though Saiko used his power to suppress the media, the rumours still spread around in school. Thanks to the sleazy press club president, Manako Jouten and her photographer lackey. She wants to interview Saiki but he refuses. Hence she prints a fake story on Saiki and Nendou being gay. Saiki has no choice but to accept just to put this case to rest.

Episode 7D
However Jouten is unhappy that all the truths that Saiki said (except the parts of him using his powers) are really boring. Even more disappointed that he did not take sneaky photos of Teruhashi changing or taking a dump. Yeah, she’s really a corrupted journalist. She would’ve been more suitable to be a paparazzi. Thus Jouten prints a fake story that Saiki did take pictures of Teruhashi taking a dump. This causes all her fans to hound him but Teruhashi clears the air that he is not that kind of person. Plus, she didn’t take a dump despite being stranded there. Because she is more than your ordinary girl! Everybody believes her! It doesn’t end there as Jouten tries to aggravate the situation further. Dressed up as Teruhashi and doing posing in a taking a dump position later to be superimposed and Photoshop, the next day she gets a shock when Saiki alters the story to reveal the embarrassing act of the press duo trying to fake a take a dump act. That’s journalism for you.

Episode 7E
It’s the last day of summer vacation. As usual, Nendou, Kaidou and Kuboyasu hound Saiki at his home to copy his homework. However Saiki realizes there is one homework he didn’t quite finish: Picture diary. High school students still have picture diary homework? So we see the rest make up stupid stories of what they do. But when they learn Saiki did nothing during all his holidays, they feel pity and want to bring him to the beach or something. Saiki changes his mind and will show them he did everything. Yup, he teleported around the country and take pictures of himself doing awesome stuffs. The friends are so amazed that now they don’t want to do their homework and instead spend their last day to the max doing fun stuffs.

Episode 8A
Time for another new transfer student, Mikoto Aiura. She claims she can read fortunes. Sceptic at first, Saiki sees her doing weird rituals but reads Yumehara’s loveless life right. Poor girl runs away crying. The more she tells her predictions, the more Saiki believes she is the real deal. The reason why she transfers here is because she heard of another guy who has great psychic powers too and believes he is her soul mate. The way she describes him is definitely Saiki! It’s the more reason why he needs to stay out of her sight.

Episode 8B
With Saiki staying at home and using clairvoyance to peak, he learns Aiura has another ability to see people’s aura. So she sees the various auras like Kaidou’s squirrel, Hairo on fire and the biggest angelic aura of them all: Teruhashi! Saiki is done running so he decides to confront and tell her the truth. Suddenly she cannot see auras anymore. Saiki thinks he knows the trick. Because his aura is too big, it envelopes everyone else. So long she doesn’t see him from afar alone, his identity is safe. Just when Aiura thinks she has found her soul mate, that dude is Nendou. Damn…

Episode 8C
Saiki sees Yuuta getting bullied. He tells his mom and since she can’t do anything, he leaves it to Saiki to help thinking he is closer to him. Next day Saiki sees the same thing. Saiki transforms himself into their age to intervene. When the bullies run away, he learns that Yuuta was trying to become strong like his Cider Man and picked a fight with them! When the bullies return, Saiki stood there and just got punched. This shocks Yuuta as he sees a vision of Cider Man telling him that true strength and justice is also about apologizing. Yuuta does so and the bullies stop picking on him.

Episode 8D
Saiki realizes he is in a time loop. It seems after a few seconds, that scene will repeat itself again and again. To get out of this loop, he needs to clear his mind completely. Yeah, he looks like an idiot doing so. Although he is able to get out of that time loop, another one happens. This process goes on a while until a time loop of a child almost getting rammed by a truck. Saiki must time it precisely because too early or late will have fatal consequences. After 16,785 loops (OMG! As bad as that Haruhi episode!), he finally gets out. Nendou scares him when he repeated an earlier line.

Episode 8E
Teruhashi narrates how she is born as the cutest and hence it is not strange that everyone fawns over her. Somehow this is supposed to be a reminder why she likes plain guy Saiki as he is the only one who doesn’t fall for her charms. Yup, she needs him to be impressed by her beauty. Remember that goal? So to catch the elusive Saiki, she uses her charms to attract the men to look for him! Man, it’s a real man hunt if I must say! Unfortunately Saiki cannot be found. Teruhashi is disappointed but we see the real Saiki is invisible and standing right beside her! He also reminds us of all the other powers he has and has been living his entire life to hide them. It’s the reason he stays away from Teruhashi as she attracts people. She can fool others but not him!

Episode 9A
Kouki Sawakita is just a background character. Suddenly he gets called by Aiura. Is this his big break? After doing some weird stuffs on him, it looks like she is trying to find her soul mate and he isn’t it. Yeah, she has a list of people with the initials SK and is trying to narrow it down. Yumehara helps her and even theorizes how her soul mate might have a big aura that it is cancelling her ability to see the aura of others. Spot on. Their plan is to watch everyone leave school and if she can see the aura, it means that person is her soul mate. Saiki pretends to leave and then teleports back. The girls wait and wait and when Aiura could see the aura, she sees a death sign on Yumehara’s face. Yumehara falls off the rail but luckily Saiki teleports and saves her.

Episode 9B
Saiki tells the truth about himself to Aiura. She might not be able to believe at first but they have to solve Yumehara’s problem first. They make this incident look like a dream. Aiura walks home with Yumehara and a few mishaps happen along the way. It is thanks to Saiki’s clairvoyance that allowed them to escape death. Until a lorry almost crashing into them did the death sign on her face disappear. With that over, now Aiura is totally in love with Saiki.

Episode 9C
Saiki and friends attend a circus hosted by Chouno. I guess being a magician wasn’t enough. Yeah, to broaden his horizon. A mishap causes Chouno to be injured. Since the show must go on, he picks Saiki as his replacement. There is no way he would do that but with Chouno’s assistant also supporting his idea, everyone places their hopes on him. Saiki goes out there and uses a bit of his power to impress the crowd. He is about to leave when he is done but receives a premonition that there will be fire and many injured.

Episode 9D
Not wanting that to happen, Saiki stays put and substitutes the next circus act, thinking their act would case the fire. Yeah, everybody is going to be amazed at this talented clown doing everything. He even tames a lion who is hell bent on eating humans! Chouno returns from hospital since his injuries aren’t bad. Suddenly the ceiling collapses and there are some injured. They help them out and despite the circus ruined, Chouno still entertained them with his own magic tricks. Saiki believes everything would have turned out fine anyway even had he not intervened.

Episode 9E
Teruhashi is absent with a cold. Because of that, everybody is gloom and doom! Yeah, their sunshine is away. With everyone so worried, it doesn’t help with Kaidou theorizing she could be dying. Hence the rumours keep growing as well as everyone’s anxiety that she is dead! Heck, Hairo even screams to God to take him instead! With this annoyance, Saiki has no choice but to intervene. Using his telepathy to tell everyone Teruhashi has just a cold, he then teleports to Teruhashi’s room and knocks out her f*cking annoying brother who is bugging her in bed to take suppositories. Teruhashi is able to rest well and returns to school the next day. Everyone in school is happy. Except Mugami who has now caught her cold. Nobody cares about him…

Episode 10A
Grandpa is happy that Saiki is coming to visit. But when dad calls, he immediately hangs up. Another call but this doesn’t sound like Saiki and could be a scam. But grandpa still falls for it since the voice says he loves him. Yeah, he is told to leave money somewhere because he blew it on a mobile game. So grandpa quickly drives there. Luckily Saiki’s family just arrived and after hearing what happened, Saiki manages to stop grandpa. Now they have to trace the scammer. When another call is made, Saiki traces it but it leads him to a room with nobody and only a recorded voice on the voice. As he cannot trace who is behind this, there is only 1 person who can do this.

Episode 10B
The culprit is Kuusuke and it was all just a prank. Back home, Kuusuke seems to love trolling grandpa till the point of no return. Like trolling about the gift he is supposed to give him but gets distracted with something else. When grandma suggests visiting the festival, you bet grandpa is excited. But there is a problem: Their car can only fit 5 people and this means 1 of them must stay. Somehow they all decide grandpa should stay. More trolling from Kuusuke as he suggests Saiki sits on grandpa’s lap. I guess that’s it for him. With grandpa out, the rest get to go to the festivals.

Episode 10C
Saiki believes Kuusuke has an ulterior motive but the latter won’t say. Only if Saiki beats him in a shooting contest, he will tell. They try to restrain their powers as Kuusuke changes the rule that if he could hit this ugly teddy prize, he wins. But what the heck is this death raygun he is using?! Luckily Saiki shoots and deflects it and livens up the boring festival with its fireworks. Kuusuke then reveals he has graduated from college and has come home to stay here. As grandpa crawls out of bed, hell bent on going to the festival, he receives a call, grandma calls to say Kuusuke is living with them. I guess he died again. A week later, dad wants Saiki to head over to grandpa’s to send something Kuusuke forgot. When Saiki teleports there, he realizes the entire village has gone hi-tech!

Episode 10D
No doubt this is all Kuusuke’s doing and he has a lab here too. He explains it all started when an old woman couldn’t change her light bulb so he helped out via modern robotic technology. Talk about overkill. He shows grandpa in a power suit being able to do almost everything. But isn’t Kuusuke controlling him? Grandma is in an incubation tube that makes her younger! When Saiki returns the stuffs, grandpa accidentally smacks it away. Dropping out are the nefarious plans of Kuusuke to destroy Saiki via turning all the elderly in this village to obliterate him. Hence all the hi-tech machineries are just a ploy that will eventually have Kuusuke controlling them. Now that the cat’s out of the bag, what will he do? Run away!

Episode 10E
Just when Saiki picks a day that Mera doesn’t work in the café, here is Aiura showing up. He ignores her but we all know she wants to flirt with him. Toritsuka sees this and is jealous Saiki has got a girlfriend. Of course not. Toritsuka and Aiura are shocked to realize that the other has powers. So it becomes a strange contest to prove their power is the real deal. Saiki won’t take all of this and is about to leave but freaks out upon seeing a cockroach. Hence the duo get this weird idea whoever gets to kill the cockroach gets to be his sidekick. Too bad they are also scared in their own ways. In the end, it is the café master who swats it. So he is now Saiki’s sidekick?

Episode 11A
Holy sh*t! Nendou got a love letter from a girl?! NO, YOU’RE NOT DREAMING NOR IS THIS A PRANK! Heck, Nendou even thinks of rejecting her! Tracing back the events of how she really liked him, it seems he saved her from an oncoming baseball. Kaidou is trying to be a relationship master now? But he can’t even decently say the word kiss. When Hairo reads the letter properly, it seems this is not a love letter but a recruitment letter to join a baseball club. Damn…

Episode 11B
The gang try out the judo club. With the odd pairing, Saiki is forced to pair with the instructor. During the practice, Saiki manages to throw him down. This prompts him to think Saiki is the new judo champion for Japan. He is then made to fight Hairo and not wanting the attention to be on him, Saiki purposely loses but Hairo could see through his trick. Then another go, Saiki makes it look like he is serious of winning but in the last minute somehow turns the tables and loses. Now everyone thinks Hairo is the next judo champion. Nendou then goes to avenge Saiki and easily defeats Hairo. Damn, he is the new potential judo champion!

Episode 11C
Teruhashi visits Saiki’s place for New Year. Saiki knew she is coming and jams the intercom. However Kuusuke is here and lets her in. Saiki knows having Teruhashi and Kuusuke together will be a bad thing so for once he takes her out to the shrine. Too bad Kuusuke also tags along. Kuusuke asks if they’re dating and Teruhashi flusters. As she tries to be humble, Kuusuke drops the bomb that he is not complimenting her as he paints Saiki as a much better person and hence she is not good enough for him. Saiki knows Kuusuke is trying to cause trouble and uses his scowl to stop. Teruhashi is going to get back at Kuusuke so she cries angelic tears (crocodile tears?) and every guy in the shrine is mad at Kuusuke for hurting Teruhashi. Get him!

Saiki uses his power to knock the yakuza out and will not stand anyone who threatens those leading an ordinary life. Saiki fears Satou thinks he has hidden powers to knock out this dude but thankfully he thinks he got hit by a stray ball or something. Normalcy saved.

Episode 11E
Saiki now reads at the school library because at the local library, the librarian always spoils the story. With this punk in charge who doesn’t read, I guess it’s safe that there will be no spoilers. Also, Saiki borrows the book that is least borrowed to avoid spoilers from past borrowers. But this mystery novel with many volumes, accidentally he peeked into the past of the last person to borrow it. However this romance comes to a cliff-hanger. It seems Saiki is more interested to know about what happened to them than the story in the book.

So this romance thingy turned out to be some love triangle as the guys fought over the girl. Yeah, they borrowed the volumes to use as shield?

Rifuta confronts her and I suppose the argument got so heated they end up lying with all the XXX stuffs they did. When Teruhashi is seen coming, Rifuta hides them in a locker.

In fact, Teruhashi starts thinking how cool they are but wait. She still thinks it would be fund Saiki was here.

Mera forces Saiki and Aiura into one of those maid cafes she works. Apparently she has been eating food for customers and the manager threatened to fire her if she doesn’t bring in new ones. Shouldn’t she be fired? Aiura treats Mera to an omelette rice and learns why she is working so hard to save up. It’s to find her dad. However Saiki blames Aiura for this because had she not did that fortune telling, Mera wouldn’t have burdened herself like this. Saiki and Aiura have differing views on helping others. He doesn’t want to help. As he leaves, he stumbles into Mera’s dad.

Episode 13B
Saiki plays dumb but Mera’s dad knows the school uniform same as his daughter. I guess Saiki isn’t interested in his flashback. He claims he is being chased by debt collectors and came back here to die. At least he wants to tell his family members. Yeah, so why tell Saiki? Saiki still refuses to help the guy and he looks unhappy. At the same time, Aiura decides to help Mera find her dad and her fortune telling tells her he is in Japan right now. They find him, the real dad. The one Saiki was with was an imposter and the real debt collector. Mera’s dad tries to run away from her and doesn’t want her involved but Mera vows she has grown stronger and wants to solve this together. Meanwhile the debt collector and his cronies try to kidnap Saiki but he showed them how fearsome he is. When Mera’s dad thinks they are done for because those baddies are here, it seems they waive all his debt and promise not to bother him again. Although Saiki claims he only helped because he was nearby, Aiura is not amused because in her fortune telling she saw this scene. With Mera reunited with her dad, basically they are still the same: Penniless.

Episode 13C
Saiki notices an interesting manga has started to suck. He realizes his dad is the one handling the account. Hence Saiki spies on his dad meeting up with the author, Fudekichi Shiragami on next week’s work.

Episode 13D
Saiki and co try to do hanami at the park but it is all fully booked with spot claimers. Yeah, these people have no life and have been camping here for a few days. Eventually they find a spot but it is so far that it might as well look like an ordinary picnic. They are happy with that except that the food they eat or sounds they hear all seem to make them have that nostalgic hanami feel. Desperate, thank goodness Teruhashi is here. Since she joins them, everyone makes space for them. Now that they have a good spot, they still can’t have a good view because everybody is crowding around them.

Episode 13E
Saiki seems to be doing some sort of strength and speed training in some unknown desert. He then reveals the shocking revelation that the world has undergone this same year loop for the fourth time. He used his mind control to alter people’s’ perception of time. It all began when he prophesized a huge volcano that would devastate Japan forever. Hence his training. Now he thinks he is ready to stop the eruption and uses the fruits of his training. However he still feels it is not enough and hence reverted the world to a year ago again. Because it will cause mass panic if people just reverted too, it is easier to alter their minds. At least now he has another year to think of another way.

Episode 14A
Saiko has to undergo a family ritual in which he cannot receive help from his estate for 24 hours. Yeah, but he is given 10 grand as his allowance. So Saiki’s pals tease him and decide to help him return home. Nope, can’t call a taxi and have to walk. He lets Nendou carry him and as they decide to eat ramen for lunch, Saiko is devastated they have to queue. I guess all that waiting must have made him hungry so he eats this commoner food. Eventually Saiko passes the test and returns to his luxurious life. So what does he order his personal chef to cook? Ramen.

Remember the occult club? It still isn’t disbanded and Saiki is forced to attend it since Yumehara is ‘threatening’ that Kaidou and Toritsuka never showed up after that. But what’s this? The club is now so bright and lovely and that Arisu girl is no more gloomy. So the club now talks about boys and love? The only creepy occult thing is how they use this scary doll called Sayaka to tell fortunes. It’s like their own creepy version of kokkuri. Yumehara tries to force Saiki to confess he likes Teruhashi and rigs the reading so Saiki uses his powers to make it look like Sayaka has a life of her own to scare the daylights out of them. He believes they won’t return to this club and that the club is done for good. But he notes Sayaka pointing to ‘no’. A coincidence?

Episode 14D
It’s so early in the morning and Saiki’s parents try to outdo each other that they love the other more. I wonder when Saiki is going to get his breakfast… Because of this, they end up arguing! WTF?! So they become mad because they believe they love the other much more. Hence it becomes a passive aggressive quarrel. So freaking weird. They settle this via using a third party (that’s you, Saiki) and measure their love with this meter. Dad scores high and when mom tries it, he tries to rig it by doing something uncouth. She accuses him of cheating and does the same but he only finds it cute. Mom suggests who loves Saiki more but dad doesn’t want to and admits his loss. But the argument continues although they are back to being lovey-dovey. Love is sure confusing in this family. Saiki notices the mom’s meter reading the same for him. He wonders if it is broken.

Episode 14E
Saiki is paired up with Teruhashi for art class and they have to draw each other’s portrait. Saiki must control his powers otherwise he will draw a surreal version of her!

In the end, she draws a plain version of him but the attention is on Yumehara who draws a lovely version of Kaidou. On the other hand, Saiki tries to put together various people’s thoughts of Teruhashi as his own art but it turns out to be hideous. When time is out, the guys wonder why Saiki’s works is blank. Although the truth is he has no time to rework, the guys start thinking that it is because of her bright aura that makes her beautiful!!! Blank represents her white purity! Yeah, I think they’re seeing things with their delusions. So this is art? Teruhashi is disappointed as she really wanted to see how he drew her.

Episode 15A
Nendou goes to help the baseball team. Saiki thinks of going to ‘protect’ the club since Satou is in this club. But this sparks off a list of cliché settings and characters as observed by Saiki. This includes the club must win a match in tomorrow’s game or face disbandment, the captain getting injured by a stray ball and they need another member to replace him. That’s you, Saiki!

Episode 15B
Saiki bandages his fingers to look like he is injured. So Kaidou takes over? Nah. Kuboyasu. As the game begins, Saiki also observes a lot of cliché moments but they are broken when he realizes that one of the non-cliché events like Nendou joining could have been the cause of this deviation. But Saiki isn’t going to take the blame himself? At this rate, they will lose when they supposed to have cliché won. So the supposed return of the banned ace to help the team win almost didn’t happen. Saiki had to control his body and do some awesome moves. Slowly everything returns to its cliché moments. Until Nendou steps in to play…

Episode 15C
Nendou does a few scares with the cliché stuffs. Not sure if he is doing it on purpose. In the end they won because of how Nendou’s non-cliché conformity balanced up with the other cliché stuffs. But is back to the cliché moments as the team goes to eat BBQ to celebrate their victory. More cliché moments like they face off with another rival team in some cliché eating challenge and the cliché draw and settlement. Saiki who has been so thrilled to watch all that cliché drama realizes he has not ate his own BBQ meat as they were all finished by his parents. Cliché ending?

Episode 15D
Saiki is devastated with the news of the famous series Kochikame ending. I guess it is more important than dad losing his job. Yeah, his job is to lick shoes. So he decides to take this into his own hands by licking shoes in the streets! He is such a professional licker he can tell you all the tricks to lick shoes! Is this proud or embarrassing? Because he stumbles into Shiragami, Kuusuke has this idea. Hence the manga of a shoe licking protagonist becomes an instant hit, being adapted into series and anime everywhere. Heck, there is even a shoe licking merchandise! With the boom in business, dad doesn’t need to lick shoes anymore and is resting on his laurels. Until Kuusuke says the merchandise’s patents all belong to him and he sold them all to the company dad once work. Oh well, I guess back to more shoe licking. Better keep practising because his boss can tell his licking is getting sloppier!

Episode 15E
It is Mera’s birthday. Everybody knows because she is basically advertising it. Everybody is forced to give her their food since she is so pushy. Extortion? Daylight robbery? I guess they feel obligated because last year she went around to give everybody a little acorn as their birthday gift. Now it’s payback. As she ticks off the list (I guess she is targeting everybody), some of her friends come to give her non-food related gifts. She starts to complain and show her disdain. This causes everyone to hate her and take back their gifts. Really? They want back those lousy food stuffs? Mera feels bad she has strayed from her path and became ungrateful. Too late to regret. However with Saiki’s powers, he makes a girl trip but she is not injured because the acorn became a sacrificial charm to protect her. Everybody now loves Mera and showers her with food gifts.

Episode 16A
Rifuta fears her lesbian awakening with Teruhashi so she forces Saiki to introduce her to a guy. Because she views him as a scumbag, scumbags should know proper guys. What logic… With Yumehara willing to help out, it seems Rifuta can actually judge a guy’s character pretty accurately. So why go through all this then? Heck, Rifuta becomes Yumehara’s master in love as she advises her how to be more attractive to Kaidou. Because Toritsuka is being possessed by a nice spirit, Rifuta’s readings on him are off. Until Saiki bumps the spirit out, Rifuta changes her mind. In the end, Rifuta falls for Mugami as he has the same aura as Teruhashi. Saiki notes she has no taste after all.

Episode 16B

Saiki eavesdrop on his thinking and finds it all questionable. Mugami then spots Saiki and thinks he wants to buy his sister a present and hence spying on him on what he picks. So he suggests helping him pick a present and not get credited for it. So we see Mugami having weird tastes thinking it would be the best. When he gives them to her, she is not impressed. Until a very normal and cute cup in which Saiki had suggested but Mugami brushed aside. She likes this and thanks him. Mugami enjoys taking the credit.

Episode 16C
Due to rumours of a haunted house, Toritsuka summons all members of the occult club to investigate. Of course this is to ensure he looks good in the eyes of everyone. Inside the house, he detects no ghosts and believes it is chased out by an evil spirit because he saw ‘homeless ghosts’ all around the streets. This ‘evil spirit’ turns out to be some wuss guy who played pranks on other inhabitant ghosts just to make friends. After he helps the ghost out and other ghosts return, he hopes his pals can spread the word of the good he did.

Episode 16D
Saiki sees a new ad for a new jelly maker. With not enough money, it is time to become 100 Yen Man! So for any job, he charges this price. Any job. Good moment to rip off his dad to do anything he wants. Better be specific with your instructions or else he will charge some more. As this is still isn’t enough, he decides to visit grandpa. Of course he will give any money without anything in return. However he realizes Saiki will leave too soon after receiving the money and has him do the odd jobs instead. Now that Saiki has enough, he buys the jelly maker. However the ad comes out with a new and improved version. Looks like a job for 100 Yen Man again!

Episode 16E
Kaidou invites Saiki and Nendou to his secret base camp he made with Kuboyasu. However it is so boring that Nendou threatens to leave. Yeah, his house is even better with air-cond and some VR game. Even Kuboyasu mocks about making such secret bases these days. But the point is, secret bases must be made by themselves and not by others if you want to appreciate and see its appeal. He reveals this base isn’t finished yet and they’re supposed to make one on a tree. I guess this motivates Nendou to help. Saiki only helps as his powers help keep the base balance on a branch. Otherwise you think they could finish this in a day? When Nendou’s bug escapes and lands on Saiki’s face, he passes out and the branch gives way, collapsing all their hard work.

Episode 17A
Time for Kuusuke to make Saiki sweat again. He has placed 5 cards around the city in which Saiki must retrieve them all or else he will expose via fireworks about his psychic abilities. Hence Saiki goes around collecting weird letters from weird guys that instructs how to get cards with letters on them. When Saiki finally gets them all but runs out of them, Kuusuke releases the fireworks. Actually it is to wish happy birthday and that is what all the cards spell out when put together. Kuusuke gives him his favourite jelly to appease him but Kuusuke has got all the data he wants on Saiki and perhaps he could defeat him next time.

Episode 17B
With their moms away to the association meeting, Saiki is forced to bring Yuuta to the zoo. Yeah, one hour tantrum… Saiki uses his psychic powers to make the eland pose for Yuuta as he wants. Yuuta then realizes he lost his bag so they have to go look for it. A baboon has it and won’t give it back thinking humans are inferior. Saiki uses a projection to show why he is top of the food chain and instil fear in them. With the bag back and heading home, Yuuta remembers he forgot to take a photo of the eland. As he cries, the moms come back and Saiki’s mom shows her scary side thinking he made Yuuta cry. Definitely the one top of the food chain.

Episode 17C
Saiki’s dad goes to see Shiragami for the usual manga submission. Saiki follows via astral projection so as to see his work in advance. But dad gets side-tracked when one of Shiragami’s assistants, Jouji Kumogata made his own work and wants him to look at it. Woah. Dad is a pro as he explains all the typical cliché manga pitfalls. No punch line or any resolve for this skit too.

Episode 17D
Kaidou’s little brother, Toki believes him to be a really powerful and cool guy. Until Nendou hangs out and his stupidity and honesty threatens to unravel all that coolness. Toki thinks Nendou as his henchman is just rude and tries to tall all of Kaidou’s coolness. Nendou laughs like mad before believing how cool it all is. They get too noisy until their sister, Sora kicks them out. Along the way, a ruffian abuses the vending machine. Toki stops him and claims this is his brother’s turf. The ruffian is about to punch Kaidou but Toki gives him a judo throw! Because he admires big brother so much, he has starting training. Looks like Toki has already surpassed him…

Episode 17E
Teruhashi keeps up her good girl image until she sees Saiki leaving with Aiura. Time for jealousy to rear its ugly head. Confronting her, both girls get the idea the other is the kind of girl Saiki likes. But Teruhashi who thinks she has won over Aiura on everything, realizes perhaps the only thing she loses out is boobs! Next day, Teruhashi comes in with her gal fashion while Aiura tries to look straight like Teruhashi. Talk about switcheroo. Teruhashi ups the ante going full gal mode but this didn’t get the required reaction from Saiki. Asking Aiura’s help, Teruhashi is back to her normal the next day. Because Aiura using her fortune to say about the person she likes prefers those who are true to themselves. Teruhashi notes that she can be true to herself as she is one with such principles. Hence no need to panic and it’s only a matter of time. But didn’t Saiki just said “Oh~!”???!!! Teruhashi wonders if she heard things…

Episode 18A
Touma Akechi is a new transfer student in class. Thing is, he cannot stop talking! Damn those speech bubbles are hoarding the space! He doesn’t want to keep it short either! Naturally he has no friends so Kaidou and Kuboyasu got the balls to try and talk to him. The talking doesn’t stop… However Akechi isn’t just talkative. He is very observant and can tell Kuboyasu was a delinquent. Then it seems he hints he knows a psychic in elementary school. So he turns to Saiki and his happy to see him again. Oh no… Saiki now remembers. But he used to go by the name of Touma Asumi and Akechi is his mother’s maiden name.

Episode 18B
Saiki puts on his dumb face when Akechi tries to expose him as a psychic. Luckily his friends don’t believe so. Hence it becomes Akechi’s personal mission to expose Saiki by finding proof. He talks to various characters and although they have their ‘suspicions’ of Saiki, they’re all rather for dumb reasons. Akechi gets mindf*cked by Nendou because he isn’t listening after all that talking and Nendou has to nerve to ask him to explain it all again and Akechi just shortens it! Wow! Reverse psychology. And then he meets Teruhashi. Oh…

Episode 18C
I guess he is finding hard to find the right words to say. Interrupted by Toritsuka who obviously sucks at lying. Akechi is now on his tail to reveal some juicy bits. Luckily Saiki channelled a master swindler through him to make Toritsuka sound like he though Saiki is in debt. Akechi won’t give up. So while the gang is harvesting potatoes, Saiki hates the place as it is filled with bugs. Akechi starts to catch on he fears bugs and each time one gets too close, Saiki will ‘explode’ a potato. Akechi then puts more bugs but Saiki doesn’t freak out. Was his observation wrong? Actually Saiki used his power to make Mera look like him in exchange for a potato. I wonder how Saiki is going to use his power to hide his power from Akechi.

Episode 18D
Amp thinks he can use his usual cuteness to get humans to feed him. Too bad there’s a new cuter cat in town. So cute that it has a different art style! I guess complaining to Saiki isn’t going to make a difference but oh look, cute cat is here! Saiki’s dad gets so taken in that he starts worshipping it? Poor Amp is kicked out but he is desperate enough to pull off embarrassing moves that he thinks it is cute? Not working. The ultimate desperation comes when he wears a mask to look like the cute cat. Not working. Mom then comes home. Remember, she is allergic to cats. Amp mocks this means cutie pie can’t stay too. However mom isn’t allergic to this one. It is revealed it is a robot cat made by Kuusuke for their anniversary. New family member? Too bad Amp still won’t get any love.

Episode 18E
Saiko continues to boss his way around school. His lackeys might seem to lap up to him but they too hate him. Hence Saiko does some serious thinking. Everyone obeys him since birth except for this people at this school. He has had enough and will transfer out. Meanwhile his lackeys despite not liking Saiko, they explain he is a pretty decent guy. At first they did it for the money, but they are impressed he always says what he wants. Also, he gives them money even when they don’t want it. Saiko on his way out bumps into Nendou and somehow he tells him he is quitting. Wow. Nendou crying?! Because he is his friend! With the rest all worried about him quitting, Saiko realizes the one thing money can’t buy: Friendship. Despite entering a childish argument with Nendou, everyone notices his happy face. Saiko rescinds his dropping out. The principal approves but he wonders if he still has some donation for him. It’s still all about the money…

Episode 19A
The class is supposed to pick reps for the cultural festival. At first everyone thinks it will be Hairo and Fumi Kasai again but the teacher says it has to be someone new. Any volunteers? Time to hit the panic button. With Mera giving her poverty excuse, everyone soon starts to make up excuses. Saiko then throws down some money for those who is willing and everyone now jostles for it! But it is Kuboyasu who refuses the bribe and his coolness makes him the male rep. As for the female rep, Teruhashi volunteers and this has all the guys enraged as they want to take Kuboyasu’s spot. A draw is held and as Saiki has seen it all coming from the start, he is the one who drew the short end of the stick. God really wants to see Saiki x Teruhashi, huh?

Episode 19B
Teruhashi uses her charm to manipulate the class to do a play because this means spending more time doing preparations with Saiki. However Saiki calls upon Nendou, Kaidou and Kuboyasu to help out with the brainstorming of the play they will be doing. But this brainstorming seems to be critical comments on the illogical parts of the folklore. Isn’t that why they are called fairytales? Then it dawned to them that they should reinterpret the stories and fix its flaws! They think it is an original idea but you know, it has been done to death everywhere. Hence they decide to reinterpret the popular folklore of Tarou Urashima.

Episode 19C
With Kaidou as the director and screenwriter, Teruhashi is definitely Otohime. Some of the other casts include Hairo as the turtle and Saiki as the seaweed. Kuboyasu lands the role as Urashima but he is not the main character. It goes to Saiko who is Undershima. Part of the rewrite? Well, it is because Saiko funded their extravagant costumes and set.

Episode 19D
During the rehearsal, we see how it deviates from the original story. Urashima isn’t the main guy as Undershima is his dark inner conscious and the one making the decisions. In the end when Urashima opens the box, he dies instead of growing old and Undershima return to marry Otohime. If this feels like a sham, it is because everyone knows it is. There is an original ending that turns Undershima into an old guy while Urashima marries Otohime. They went with the former ending as Saiko is the sponsor. But now that Saiko hears this, he pulls out. That means no costumes or set too. On the day of the play, I guess the class is just barebones in costumes and set. Heck, almost none!

Episode 19E
They should have cancelled it but Kaidou rallied everyone to work things out but I guess they didn’t make it. So kids beating up a turtle looks like a human bullying scene. Kaidou replaces Saiko as Undershima and is the only one in costume. He is nervous so Saiki uses his power to calm him down. When Teruhashi appears, she is so amazing that everyone starts hallucinating and sees the play in its extravagant costume and set!!! OMFG! Of course it is Saiki’s power but if you wonder why he didn’t do it from the start, it is to hide it behind Teruhashi’s amazingness. The audience is so captivated with this ‘romance drama’ and the climax where Otohime is supposed to confess she loves Urashima, Teruhashi fumbles because saying I love you has her think about Saiki. The best play was won by the class who did Wizard of Oz. Everyone wearing glasses?

Episode 20A
When Saiki’s glasses break, accidentally he turns Nendou and Kaidou into stones. Unfortunately he cannot turn them back and the magic will wear off in 24 hours. Fearing that other people around them will be suspicious, hence he hatches a plan by calling Aiura and Toritsuka to help out. Using his power to make them look like his friends, they are to go about in their daily lives. Aiura becomes Kaidou while Toritsuka is Nendou. Saiki has a hard time juggling in between them as their goofiness almost cause them to fail. And so it might look like the issues are resolved as ‘Kaidou’ takes a cram school test while ‘Nendou’ sees Chouno. Because new problems are brewing.

Episode 20B
Yumehara is at the same cram school with ‘Kaidou’ while Chouno introduces ‘Nendou’ to a fellow magician, Venus Tsukiko. ‘Kaidou’ allows Yumehara to hug him and is on the verge of confessing while ‘Nendou’ can’t help stare at sexy Venus’ boobs. ‘Kaidou’ solves the issue by creating another chuunibyou character while ‘Nendou’, oh no Midori is here! Remember, they used to be married. But the issue solves itself without having ‘Nendou’ to do anything. After living the rest of the day as their counterparts, soon the real Nendou and Kaidou will return to normal. When they did, they are unaware of what happened. They thought Saiki’s glasses are still broken but is unsure why he looks so unkempt and messed up. It’s really tough trying to keep things normal.

Episode 20C
Warp (Kuusuke’s robo cat) has a new talking function that can be activated. Dad totally loves it but is it me or does Warp seem to be siding mom more and bullying and teasing dad? With Warp being able to do various things, this only makes dad sad as this means Warp is no more than a household appliance. So he runs away from home? WTF. Warp goes after him. Stubborn at first that he won’t give in to Warp’s cuteness but you know that guy, eventually he does. Now that dad accepts Warp as a pet, Warp returns acting like a normal cat. I guess he didn’t read the thick manual that petting him 3 times would return Warp back to act like a normal cat.

Episode 20D
Kaidou wants his friends to gather at his place and stay up to usher the New Year. However all of them are so damn tired that they keep falling asleep. Even when they try to do stuffs to stay awake, somehow they manage to even doze off! Eventually they think they should take turns to sleep until the time comes but now they argue who should sleep first. Saiki wins this rigged match and goes to bed. In no time everybody falls asleep. Don’t even bother. But Saiki wakes up in his own room. Oh gosh. Did he fall asleep? Thankfully that was just a dream. But wait. If it is a dream that tells the future, then would that not happen tonight? Yup. When Kaidou calls for that, Saiki gives excuse he is too tired to even go.

Episode 20E
A silent segment with no dialogue as we see how Saiki spends his New Year’s Day morning. Oh no! How will we understand what’s going on?! Okay, so we see Saiki’s dad trying to tease him to get his New Year allowance but you can’t beat this psychic kid. Mom forces him to go to the shrine with his friends. Teruhashi and Yumehara look gorgeous in their kimono. Uhm, some weird dance by Nendou? When Saiki prays, his ring that controls all thoughts from others accidentally drops in. Now we have proper dialogue as he dreads hearing the thoughts and wishes of his friends.

Episode 21A
Grandpa is supposed to come visit but he got lost and has not enough money. Saiki could have easily come to teleport to get him but Teruhashi found him. Grandma? She’s at the store with Aiura. Saiki watches as grandpa talks to Teruhashi about his favourite grandson. I’m sure she would have loved this guy if he wasn’t such a long guest going on and on and on! Meanwhile grandma has gone disco dancing with Aiura! Grandma rocks! Just when grandpa thinks Teruhashi is the perfect wife for Saiki, mom comes to pick them up. Back home, grandpa and grandma argue which girl is to be Saiki’s wife.

Episode 21B
Toritsuka needs Saiki’s help again. For all the forbidden things he has done (hiding his porn stash in the Buddha statue), he is forced to go fasting for 3 days without anything. You bet Saiki isn’t going to help this jerk out but Toritsuka is adamant he will come. 2 days later and no sign of Saiki. Until he pops up. But he is here to torture him by eating food before him and then make him have hallucinations of macho men surrounding him! OMFG! When his fasting is over, Toritsuka is such a changed man! No more earthly desires! But when Toritsuka accidentally hurts himself and Saiki heals him, accidentally he also healed the fasting pain so he is back to square one.

Episode 21C
Yumehara is having problems just trying to put her Valentine’s Day chocolate in Kaidou’s locker. She eventually missed the chance and regrets it. But she comes up with a clever idea. She writes a letter and puts it in his locker. Knowing his chuunibyou tendencies, as instructed he goes to her place after school all alone to retrieve her chocolate. However there is none and only her anonymous love letter. It seems her chocolate was eaten by Nendou! Drawn by the smell? Next day as Yumehara ponders if her plan was a success, Kaidou suddenly comes up to her and asks if she wrote this. Then he confesses he likes her. WTF?! Flashback reveals Kaidou tried to ‘decipher’ the letter so he misinterprets she wants to be his best friend.

Episode 21D
Yumehara is so happy that she is melting? Although they have the same idea on certain things like walking home together, they are actually on a different page when they are talking to each other. Like she thought he was referring to the chocolate but he thought it was the coded letter. Thanks to them being dumb, the worst never happened and the situation solves itself thanks to their continued misunderstanding. But then the cat is out of the bag when Yumehara realizes Kaidou doesn’t like sweet things. So did he eat her chocolate? He saw no chocolate. He shows her the letter. Heart break. Tears. Kaidou feels bad. He thinks they shouldn’t be best friends. You mean, go back to like how they were? Okay. And like that, they’re back to normal. Romance, so complicated.

Episode 21E
The press club is up to no good again. After printing some scandal of a couple of the teachers dating (which wasn’t anything to hide in the first place), now they target Teruhashi. Yeah, Jouten is going to snap a photo of her that shows her detestable side and destroy her. As Teruhashi has always been stalked, she knows the press club is on to her. So when they set up for a car to splash a mud puddle on her, she looks even godlier in the photos! She has an idea of swapping her face with an ugly one (Jouten’s ugly face, by the way) and it really seems to work. You wonder why she is doing the editing next to the puddle instead of somewhere else. Because Saiki rides over and splashes all over their equipment. All data lost.

Episode 22A
Not too sure about this word game Nendou, Kaidou and Kuboyasu are playing on their way home after school. They take steps depending on the weird words they say. Because of that, people complain to the school and they got reprimanded. Saiki who had no role in it was also reprimanded. Not sure if he even needs a group to walk home with but now he gets to walk home with Hairo. Heck, that guy volunteers to walk with him. But being with him is a drag as he stops to help just about everybody! He is a help magnet! Then a store gets robbed. Hairo goes to diffuse it and takes off his shirt as proof he has no weapons but his muscles are even more intimidating! Of course it takes Saiki’s power to stop the criminal before Hairo wrestles him. Now the duo are the talk of the town and on the front page of the newspaper. However Saiki doesn’t like it as this attracts more attention and would rather go home with his other dumb group.

Episode 22B
Rifuta is now an obsessed fan of Mugami but can’t let Teruhashi know in fear she will think she is using her to get close to Mugami. Hence she goes bug Saiki to help let her go see him in the midst of some filming. Not sure why she needs his help since she knows exactly where he is. Anyway Saiki takes her there and Rifuta is just swooning and close to death at every single movement Mugami makes. When Mugami spots them, he is happy and gets the wrong impression she is Saiki’s girlfriend. Because this means no competition over Teruhashi. He thinks of wanting to double date and for the umpteenth time today, Rifuta was this close to death after hearing this good news. Too bad Saiki won’t be coming.

Episode 22C
It seems Saiki has 37 clones of himself! After failed attempts to save the world, he realized the need for this power and since he can only make 1 clone for himself, there is a loophole to ask his clones to make another clone. Hence don’t be surprise if you really see odd looking Saiki dudes ranging from old buggers to aliens! He sends the closest looking clone to go out and do some errand. Not sure why he couldn’t do it since his parents asked. Anyway this clone also has his flaws like he walks funny and has dirty teeth. At the store, he comes into Nendou. Abort mission! But Nendou keeps bugging him. So Saiki had to do a pot falling distraction just to switch out. Some things are better left done by yourself.

Episode 22D
Oh dear. Akechi is back and this time he has ‘proof’ of 4 incidents in which could explain Saiki is a psychic. Yeah, Akechi has been stalking him ever since! The first was when Nendou and Kaidou turned into stone. However… There was a sumo who blocked his view and he couldn’t exactly see them turn into stone. Yup, Saiki foresaw that and teleported a sumo. The next was when that robber was going to attack Hairo at the store. Akechi saw Saiki doing a pose to use his power. But… A sniper was behind him and shot a tranquilizer, that’s why he was frozen in that pose. Yeah, again Saiki teleported the sniper.

Episode 22E
Next incident is that Saiki clone. Akechi saw the pot turned direction before it hit Nendou. Must have been Saiki, right? Oh, he summoned a magician! Saiki is confident at this point but Akechi says he has done further investigation. He talked to the sumo, sniper and magician and all have the same answer that they were unsure how they appeared suddenly somewhere else before returning. Like as though it was a dream. Only a psychic can do that sort of teleportation, right? Now that Akechi is bugging him for an answer of what he did that day, the scene is cut and the next thing we see, Akechi is turned to stone. Finally some peace and quiet. Saiki may have petrified him to buy some time but the problem is that he will blurt everything out. He can’t let everyone know about his secret either. Now we go back to the past when Saiki was an elementary school kid…

Episode 23
Takashi the bully often showed off but he and his cronies also loved bullying Akechi. One day Akechi got hurt so Saiki thought of healing him. Unfortunately he dropped his nametag so Akechi returned to him and suspected if he is a psychic. When Takashi is doing some propeller move on the bar, Saiki uses his power to spin until his dick burns! Again Akechi suspects Saiki as a psychic but he makes that dumb ignorant face. One year later, Akechi still continues be bullied by Takashi. But one day the bullying got out of hand and Akechi was really hurt. Saiki saw this and got angry. His power destroyed half of the classroom as we saw. Saiki then used his powers to alter their memories and made others think Akechi is the psychic. Not sure why the current Saiki disguised as a girl is close by young Saiki. Time paradox thingy that you can’t meet yourself in the past but since Saiki can read minds, this pushes back Saiki back to current time. The tricky part is trying to change the past without his young self realizing. So as he tries to do so from a distance, this time throwing a rock at Takashi while he does the propeller, the future now has changed into a dystopia! This is thanks to the butterfly effect but the more Saiki goes back to try and as little as possible, the outcomes are all failures. Ranging from Takashi winning the game of life and him dying. But the biggest failure is when all his other friends now has weird nicknames for him, weird hand gestures, everybody acts and knows Teruhashi loves Saiki and doesn’t hesitate to tease her, and Nendou being effeminate! With Akechi’s petrification limit over, Saiki has decided to just tell him the truth. Yeah, Akechi is so damn shocked and overreacting just to learn the truth. But soon Akechi apologies for being a stalker because he had to make sure if he was a psychic. This is so he could thank him properly for saving him from the bullies. He promises he will not tell anyone this secret. Saiki won’t blame him even if Akechi rats on him one day since it was his own fault telling him. But if ever that day comes when the others find out so, he’ll cross the bridge when he comes to it.

Episode 24A
Teruhashi is amazing not because she is observant but rather she memorizes the preferences of all the students in the school and with that she is able to tell any slight changes. This is to protect her perfect beautiful girl image and of course this sends all those guys into delirium. With more and more guys trying out different new things, Teruhashi is forced to memorize them all in order to stay perfect. And those attention whore jerks are so obsessed in getting Teruhashi to notice them, they fail to notice it is taking a toll on her that she collapsed! Thank goodness for Saiki to catch her and bring her to the infirmary. And even so those guys still want to get noticed?! So that’s why when Teruhashi learns Saiki saved her, she screws this perfect girl and just tells them all she forgot all those details and goes after Saiki instead. So much easier…

Episode 24B
Toritsuka and Aiura are not pleased Saiki told Akechi about his secret. Since when they have a monopoly over this secret? Because of that, they want to test him to see if he is worthy. Yeah, don’t be scared by his awesome aura and reputable spirit haunting him. Of course Akechi spots them and starts blabbing. Just when the duo think he is going to blurt out Saiki’s secret, they jump the gun and accuse him of not keeping his promise. However Akechi meant something else and this means the duo are the one who almost spilled Saiki’s secret. They decide to have a showdown to see who could find Saiki’s lost keys but Akechi already knows where based on his observance and deductions. So uhm, welcome to Psykickers?

Episode 24C
Saiki thought it’s going to be another normal school term. Too bad all his friends have changed! Saiki spots a different outfit and wears glasses (mom made him wear them), Nendou has gone fat (eat and sleep), Kuboyasu bandaged from head to toe (some death defying accident), Hairo overly buffed up (indoor training did this?), Teruhashi just having twintails (yeah, it’s such a big deal), Yumehara gone fat (again) and Mera is a rich b*tch queen (viva Bitcoin!). Even Takanashi has got an accent!

Episode 24D
If that wasn’t enough, now Saiki has to unfortunate luck of meeting the other minor and obscure characters in the series from Chouno (has he turned into a super magician?) to Yuuta (still bratty) and even other characters so obscure that I’m sure you can’t well damn remember. Oh yeah, then there are a bunch of other characters that appeared in the manga but never in the anime. So, first appearance? Congratulations?

Episode 24E
Yeah, we continue Saiki’s misadventure of meeting more of such people like the ever cocky Mugami (mobbed by girls), the ever cocky Amp (ignore him), the ever tsundere Riki Jr (confused Nendou with Midori this time, huh?). Saiki doesn’t want to go home as all his family is there. But after hearing how grandma has bought his favourite jelly, he’s never so eager to come home. And this foreshadowing when this mini deity dude telling him this anime will be continuing a little longer. As Saiki goes to school the next day, we see all other characters who have not appeared yet make their paltry appearance as they try to squeeze in as many into this dying seconds. Yeah, if you remember them all. And all our changed characters are now back to normal just like that. (Sorry Mera, Bitcoin just crashed). I’m sure Saiki shouldn’t have realized it at this point how all this could happen. It’s a gag anime after all.

It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World
Well guys, did you see this coming? There is going to be a third season!!!! OMFG!!! HYPE! HYPE! SUPER HYPE! I guess this means whatever questions that were left hanging over our heads for that particular episode halfway through this season (the one that was titled a prelude to the final episode), it looks like the perfect excuse now that we have to wait for the next season instead of b*tching it right here that we didn’t get our answer. After all, it is said that the next final season (gasp!) would adapt the final chapters of the manga that has already concluded in mid-2018. I guess for those who have read those chapters, you can become psychics and tell people like me who haven’t read it and tell how it all ends. DON’T SPOIL IT FOR ME!!!!

I still enjoy this season a lot because the jokes are still as funny as they are. It’s the same formula and the same ingredient. Some may say it doesn’t break new ground because it’s just same ol’, same ol’ but just add a few new characters. But hey, if it is not broken, why fix it? After all, we have seen the kind of antics and shenanigans of this series so this sequel should hardly be any other different. Unless they take a big risk and totally turn it into something else but thankfully that didn’t happen. Can’t really imagine this series if it really strayed from its nonsensical slapstick roots.

Of course the other interesting plot of this season is featuring Saiki and his past, especially with Akechi. It might not shed a whole lot of light of Saiki’s entire past but at least it was interesting enough to see that there is a normal person out there who is a threat to Saiki’s peace and quiet. Although that mini arc was a bit confusing for me because of all that time travel, paradox and butterfly effect thingy, it still retains its Saiki type humour and all. It is a good thing Akechi turned out to be on Saiki’s side. It’ll be double bad if he is like the Jouten kind of rotten. He just needs to slow down and use less speech bubbles… To say Akechi’s unique feature is talking fast, oh heck, do you not notice that almost everybody here talks faster than usual?! And Saiki’s normal talking speed serves as the punch line and comebacks.

New characters are added to this season to spice up the craziness even more and they don’t disappoint since they live up to their crazy personality. Like Aiura the fortune teller who wants to be Saiki’s girlfriend, Rifuta who turned into Teruhashi’s friend and slowly transitioning into a crazy obsessed Mugami fan (oh, maybe she already transited completely), the scandal crazy b*tch Jouten, Akechi who just can’t stop talking and the most normal of the normal guy Satou! Wow. To think that Saiki who covets normalcy would go so far as to stalk this normal dude! That’s not normal! Oh, the irony. So you see, even with all these interesting characters, as usual my dilemma starts to kick up a fuss just so that I have something to talk about why this show isn’t perfect.

You see, with so many characters, adding new ones somewhat diminishes the limelight for older ones. For example, Hairo and Mera are already side characters but they turn into even more side characters in this season. Because the duo like many other characters aren’t part of the main character groupie. You know, Saiki’s groupie. That’s Nendou, Kaidou, Kuboyasu, Teruhashi and Yumehara, just to double check. It’s not like we need really deep character development for all the characters, right? It is their superficial characteristics is all that matters. Enough to make us laugh and the effects are made lasting thanks to the short duration of the skits in every episode. There are some characters like Saiko who have undergone some ‘shocking’ changes because this rich snobbish kid realizes the true meaning of friendship? He isn’t such a despicable person once he reaches that level. Of course some characters remain the same like Toritsuka who is still chasing after skirts and of course misusing his powers for that means.

I guess that is what you get when you have to share a piece of the pie. The pie isn’t expanding and you have to share it with more people. Hence some old and new characters are forgettable and not memorable because they suck but rather they do not have long enough a screen time presence to warrant us to remember them in the long run. For instance, that Amp cat only appeared twice in all of this season. That is only 2 freaking short skits out of a total of 120 of them! Not even 2% chance of screen time! And I didn’t include the final episode he made a cameo because that felt like ‘cheating’. Then new characters like Peanuts Ueda or Venus, you thought they are going to be mainstay but unfortunately appear only in that skit and that’s it for them. Yeah, they just want to troll us if they will be new characters that stay or not. That’s why it’s like as though they read my mind and hence the last episode they slip in some of the obscure characters to troll me and others who were at that point already starting to wonder the fate of other such characters. I guess that’s the charm of being part of a gag anime.

I just want to note about Saiki and Teruhashi’s role and relationship. Over the course of both seasons we see Teruhashi trying to get that “Oh~” out from Saiki and in our eyes it slowly turns into some sort of mission to get him to fall for her. Saiki has quoted many times that God has always sided with Teruhashi and hence the many problems that Saiki goes through but thankfully navigated through them successfully thanks to his psychic powers. He avoids getting involved with her to stay out of the limelight which he dislikes so much. But there are a few instances I noticed that he might be helping her out of the goodness of his heart. Like as though he likes her. For instance the final episode in which he had no involvement whatsoever. He isn’t even obliged to help her out and could have ignored and let her self-destruct if he loves his peace and quiet so much. But he want out of his way to actually save her. Is this hinting that there is a change of heart in him? After all, he did go “Oh~” once. Perhaps Saiki saw the kind of future, it is better Teruhashi to bug him occasionally than for her to have a mental breakdown and lose her might. Yikes. That will be the end of the world and lose-lose situation for everyone including Saiki.

A big difference from this season than the last one is the mid-intermission. If you remember the first season, there was some sort of psychic tests and quizzes just for some laughs. This season they did away with all that and inserted, uhm, how should I put it, eye candy eyecatches. It changes after a few episodes. The first batch are quite amusing because we see the guys in really cool poses and outfits. It’s like they’ve levelled up their handsomeness and manliness. So kakkoii! The next batch features the girls and of course they look hell of a cute and beautiful. Some even for fanservice purposes but nothing that risqué. It’s like they’ve levelled up their attractiveness, beautifulness and femininity. So kawaii desu! But the final batch is somewhat most disappointing. The characters are now portrayed in their chibi form which is a downer. After all those cool and pretty pictures, we got some very comical ones. Nothing actually wrong since this is what the series should be but I still prefer the former ones even if they’re all just for photogenic reasons.

With last season’s casts retained, new ones join the line-up and bloat the roster even more. New ones that I recognized are Eri Kitamura as Aiura, Yuuki Kaji as Akechi, Daisuke Sakaguchi as Shiragami and Mikako Komatsu is Riki Jr. The rest are Mao Ichimichi as Rifuta (Bada in ClassicaLoid), Azusa Enoki as Jouten (Nagisa in Shinryaku! Ika Musume) and Kensho Ono as Satou (titular character in Tanaka-kun Wa Itsumo Kedaruge). This season’s first opening theme, feels epic in its own right. Sailent Prisoner by the trio of Saiki, Nendou and Kaidou gives a feel of what to expect in its own right. But the craziness ramps up in the second opener, Oteaga Psychics by Shiggy Jr incorporating hip hop and rap into it. Dempagumi Inc who also sang some of the themes last season only sings the first ending theme, Sai Hakkenden, another denpa style song that suits this series like a glove. But the second ending theme has got to be the weirdest. Duet Shitekuda by the duo of Teruhashi and Aiura as it is a mix of hip hop (Aiura’s part) and slow lovely ballad (Teruhashi’s part). The song is about both of them trying to snag Saiki’s heart but he is not having any of it.

This season did not change much and it is enjoyable as the first. Therefore what I want to say I would have already said in the first season as my sentiments are still the same. Too bad the next season is supposedly the last. Gasp! Say it isn’t so?! Oh well, even good things must eventually come to an end. Like Gintama. NOOOOOOOO!!!!! Are we reaching the stage where good and funny comedy series are ending? Oh well. That way, Saiki could finally get his much needed peace and quiet that he always wanted. I believe he has the power to create and shape that world according to his likes but as we can see, Saiki is such a considerate guy that he is willing to put up with all the troubles so as not change the status quo. Oh Saiki, you’re such a good guy. You’ve brought us so many smiles and laughter so it’s just about the right time for you to ‘retire’. Sorry though, still couldn’t find that black coffee jello to offer you as a parting gift. But you saw that coming and didn’t expect much from me and forgave me, right?

Saiki Kusuo No Psi-nan

July 30, 2017

Imagine if you have all the super psychic powers in the world. Naturally you would want to flaunt it or show how awesome you are, right? Well, not really. Because for our main protagonist in Saiki Kusuo No Psi-nan, he could be the most powerful human ever and even more than the most powerful comic characters. However he yearns for a peaceful, ordinary and uneventful life. It would be better if nobody knows about it or if he has to use them. Anything that is deemed troublesome, he wouldn’t want it. However as we all come to expect, God isn’t going to make his life a smooth sailing and peaceful one because of all the idiots and their antics around him. He is forced to live a more ‘interesting’ and super life thanks to all the unnecessary troubles.

Episode 1A
Kusuo Saiki narrates he was born with psychic powers although his parents are both normal people. Normally, parents would have sent such special child to research centres but being the laidback parents they are, they kept Saiki and enjoyed making use of his powers. You will understand why he puts up such an emotionless face after all these years because of this. Like now his father gets locked out of the house and wants him to help open it. With psychic powers. Worse, his parents aren’t on talking terms. Like any other typical household after being married for so long, they want to kill each other.

Episode 1B
Mother treats her son with utmost care while discriminating against her husband during dinner time. Shoe as food? Saiki is forced to intervene before they kill each other because he can also read their thoughts they still love each other despite their outrageous behaviour. So he makes them think aloud and when they realize they still love each other, they reconcile. Now Saiki can enjoy his favourite black jelly pudding dessert. Mother snatches it away to give to father as sign of peace. Saiki is enraged as his psychic powers breaks all the glass and windows!

Episode 1C
It is no fun when you can read other people’s minds. That is why Saiki knows everything and can take action before the undesirable happens or just win it. However, there is one guy whom his mind reading abilities cannot work on: Riki Nendou. In short, this butt chin guy is an idiot. He might look like a delinquent but he is actually a nice guy but in an idiotic way. Like this time he tries to help a student fainted at the opening ceremony by giving him a kiss! CPR, if you should say. That student of course was trying to feign illness to get out of the assembly. So trouble might come to them if the teacher finds out they are faking it so Saiki is forced to help by heating up the thermometer just to make it look like they are really sick. Nendou thought he is also sick with some disease and thus an ambulance is called to stretcher Saiki away.

Episode 1D
Shun Kaidou AKA The Jet Black Wings. In one word: Chuunibyou! He thinks Saiki is his comrade or something and wants him to help to find some evil dragon snake. Because nobody believes him and mocks him, Saiki is forced to use a bit of his powers to teleport a snake in class to avoid Kaidou having mental breakdown in the toilet. It is Kaidou’s chance to prove his manliness as he tries to save a girl from being bitten but at this point he is too late to realize he is scared as hell. Saiki intervenes using lightning to zap him. Though everyone is impressed with Kaidou’s ‘powers’, this made Kaidou’s chuunibyou get even worse.

Episode 1E
Kokomi Teruhashi thinks she is the prettiest girl around, in which she is. Not only that, she thinks she is perfect and kind. So when she bumps into Saiki who shows no reaction whatsoever (she expects others to fall in love with her at first sight), she keeps bugging him in trying to get the right reaction. His swift teleporting allows him to dodge her hugs. You can tell she is in denial that he isn’t interested in her the least bit but she keeps thinking if he thinks she is an illusion or has a past too tragic to notice her. Seeing Nendou around, Saiki by his instinct teleports to a faraway place. Luckily nobody saw it. This makes Teruhashi wonder if she is the one seeing illusions and could it be that she has fallen for Saiki?!

Episode 2A
The class plays dodgeball. Saiki didn’t want to get involve but with Kineshi Hairo revving up everyone, I guess nobody is left out. Saiki is at least glad he is in Hairo’s team since he can leave it all to him. Saiki purposely goes out but some rule makes it impossible so he is still in the game. Nendou singlehandedly takes out all but Saiki and Hairo. Saiki thought of going out by sacrificing himself to protect Nendou but this revs him up to protect Saiki. Now he has got to go this alone. The fate of his team now rests on Saiki!

Episode 2B
Saiki is in a dilemma. He doesn’t want to attract attention but if he makes it obvious, he’ll be the target of bullies or admiration. At first Saiki’s shot may seem weak but his spin ball is deadly. He knocks out a couple of opponents and at this point Hairo returns after seeing Saiki’s amazing ‘determination’. In the end, Hairo wins it for his team. When everyone starts to like how cool Saiki is, Nendou hugs him for being the best and everyone’s likeability starts dropping.

Episode 2C
There seems to be another girl who likes Saiki. Chiyo Yumehara can’t keep starring at how handsome he is! He can read her mind she is going to do obvious cliché stuffs to make him notice her like bumping into him. But with Saiki’s powers, Yumehara always fails. It is sad that she is forced to give up on him so Saiki wishes her the best and to find someone else. He didn’t realize it was so fast because another guy, Takeru Shinoda came to already steal her heart.

Episode 2D
It’s time for Saiki’s parents to have fun using their son’s powers again. This time they want him to help move the furniture around. Due to the marital spat, they were living in separate rooms and want to move back together again. He does as told but they are never satisfied with the position because it is blocking something. This pisses off Saiki that he just crashes everything in the wall to make a giant hole. Well, they love it since the room is ‘bigger’ now. A few more moving before they realize they should have just move their stuffs to a bigger room. So revert it to everything as it was? Don’t be mad… While his powers might look like everything went back to normal, what he did was just revert back time. This means their beds are back in separate rooms.

Episode 2E
Saiki explains to us why despite his strange appearance, he doesn’t stand out in the eyes of others. Simple. In this world, this is all normal. So he gives a few examples how he makes others perceive unnatural things as normal. You can say he changes people’s values and common sense. Like how everybody in this world has colourful hair except black. Since Saiki was born with pink hair, he used mind control to have everyone think having colourful hair is the norm! So when you see a delinquent trying to fight a teacher and he fights back using some clothes ripping moves, that’s normal!

Episode 3A
Uryoku Chouno is a street magician but of course Saiki can see through his crummy tricks. It is his own undoing when he used a homeless guy for a trick. Due to bad timing, the people saw his lame trick. And he forgot about the dead pigeon in his hat… Saiki is forced to listen to his story how he lost his job and his wife left him. He became so disillusioned that he thought becoming an illusionist is his fate! So he turned down a job offer for that? Saiki wakes him up by using his own powers for a superior trick. That should make him stop, right? Chouno now wants to become his disciple!

Episode 3B
Saiki wants to watch a mystery drama on TV but since he is early, he has to watch Chouno putting up a live magic feat. He wonders if he can do this escape feat because he sounds so unready and the trick has already started rolling! Fearing this would disrupt his programme, Saiki teleports into the box to help him out but it seems he isn’t in. He already crawled out from underneath. Saiki’s screwed. He can’t use his teleport after a few minutes. Luckily, thanks to his powers, he is able to escape all the swords poking through, doused with flames and steamrolled over. He manages to get out by tunnelling through the soft ground. Chouno gets the applause when he appears all in good timing. Saiki thought he can go home and watch his drama but the actor makes his special appearance to promote the upcoming programme and since Saiki can read his mind, it kills his mood reading his thoughts of how the killer is.

Episode 3C
Kaidou enters some room in school and makes contact with another fellow chuunibyou guy. You see all the weird poses and rituals they do and when that guy alerts they are being attacked by forces and that Kaidou must leave all his precious items behind, one would clearly know this is a scam. True enough it is. Thankfully, Saiki was spying nearby and teaches that guy a lesson by becoming a dark force to scare the hell out of him. Next day when Kaidou returns, the room is messed up and he thinks that the dark force has really got this place. Unknown to him, that dark force is Saiki, right beside him.

Episode 3D
Saiki is not pleased that Nendou is here to bring him to the beach. Mother is happy he has a friend (even more so, Nendou thought she is Saiki’s sister!). So mom forces Saiki to go along with Nendou. After all, he went to all this trouble to get him. Kaidou is also here but he can’t swim. Drowning in shallow waters? You got to be an expert to do that. Nendou also wants to hit on girls but with that kind of face? No chance! When a girl is drowning, Nendou swims to save her. But he has to save Kaidou first. And then Hairo whose leg cramped up while he is trying to do the same rescue. Can he carry all of them? Saiki uses his powers to ease the burden. The girl is grateful and Nendou thinks she has fallen for him. But the only person fallen for his coolness is… Hairo!!!

Episode 3E
At the start of the new school term, Saiki and Kaidou notices Nendou acting strange. He is depressed. They follow him and seeing he is smiling at little girls, could he be a lolicon?! They think he is buying flowers and cakes to lure them so when they confront him, he brings them to his dad’s grave. They realize he wasn’t looking at young girls but at their father! That look is still perverted, though. Nendou never knew how his father looked like since he died young but mom always told him he looked like him. Saiki is shocked to see Nendou’s dad as a ghost sitting on a tombstone. They look really alike. Saiki tries to forget what he saw as he doesn’t believe in ghosts. But when he goes home, there is a letter addressing to him that he knows he is a psychic!

Episode 4A
Turns out to be Reita Toritsuka. He wants to be his disciple and promises not to tell others about his powers. Toritsuka meets Saiki in his home and admits his powers are to see ghosts. He proves it by explaining all the ghosts hanging around in his room! And there is one rubbing his butt on his face!!! Since he knows Saiki can read minds, he gets straight to his intention he wants to use his powers to make money and peep at girls! Saiki tells him to leave and accidentally touches his hand. This means Saiki temporarily receives Toritsuka’s powers as he sees all the ghosts hanging around. He must have it tough like him too.

Episode 4B
To his dismay, Toritsuka becomes a popular transfer student next class. There are lots of girls bugging him about their guardian spirit and he obliges to tell all the weird spirits by their side. He isn’t so interested in the guys, though. So obliges some like Kaidou’s guardian spirit is a Chihuahua! He tries to ignore Nendou because he thought he is a ghost! He better tell his guardian spirit or else he will never shut up about it. An old hag? Later Toritsuka has Saiki touch him to explain why he thought Nendou was a ghost. Because Nendou’s dad is his guardian spirit!

Episode 4C
Saiki didn’t want to do it but he is forced to help Hairo complete an arch for the sports festival which is somewhat broken. Saiki could use his powers easily but he has a policy of not doing it in front of others. And if he doesn’t help out, he won’t hear the end of Hairo complaining. Hairo goes to get the wood as Saiki does what is necessary and then wait for him. But he is taking too long so he uses his psychic power to check on him. He is lugging a tree back since the store is out of wood?! Saiki is hoping he just gives up but he never. Seeing his spirit, others come to help finish it. But they ask why he is doing so when the sports festival is in a month’s time. Because a month passes quickly! No words…

Episode 4D
Saiki is home alone after his parents went for a wedding reception. Yeah, he doesn’t want to read the negative thoughts of the guests how married couples are always doomed. As he is cleaning up, he spots a cockroach. He instantly teleports to Texas! He hates bugs because he can’t read their minds. Just like Nendou? Is he a bug too? He could have stayed here longer had he not remember mom reminded him there was a delivery. So using his teleport to the front door, to his dismay it is Nendou. He didn’t want him to show up at this point but gets an idea to use him to rid of the roach. But he didn’t count on how barbaric he is because Nendou uses his hands to smash them! When his parents return and give him chocolates but accidentally drop them, they look like chocolates and Saiki instantly teleports to Palau.

Episode 4E
Saiki is worried again. Because Yumehara might start falling in love with him again as her relationship with Takeru is heading downhill. That guy is as boring as hell! Not only that, his feet stinks, rude to cashiers and dislocates his jaw easily when laughing and it kills the mood. You bet Saiki is going to indirectly help to put the spark back in their relationship. For example, he switches Takeru’s dry squid snack with a cute bunny doll as his anniversary present. Just when Yumehara’s love meter for him is at an all-time high, it just takes a second for it to destroy everything because at a restaurant all his bad habits start to show. She can’t take this anymore and breaks up with him.

Episode 5A
Saiki needs to go home to watch an important anime and can’t miss it. Otherwise he can read in everyone’s heads about its spoilers. However getting home isn’t easy as the paths are blocked by Kaidou, Nendou, Teruhashi or Hairo. He can’t escape. He thought of waiting for a while but the longer he waits, the more the mobilize others to look for him! So the only way is to turn invisible but this come with limitations. He can stay invisible for 10 minutes and if somebody touches him, he will be visible again instantly. Saiki seems to be doing well till Toritsuka taps his shoulder. He could see ghosts, right? Or anything transparent? Hey everybody look! Saiki is here!

Episode 5B
Saiki didn’t want to come to the sports day but his parents insisted since they bought a new video camera. But they’re busy filming each other… Saiki’s class isn’t doing well and with many of the events coming in at last place. During Nendou’s turn for the scavenger hunt, he plucks out Saiki’s antenna and he suddenly collapses!

Episode 5C
Because of that the international space station, science lab and tribal village detect some anomalies! It is the end of the world! The moment Nendou puts it back, Saiki revives and everything returns to normal. Saved? Saiki explains the antennas on his head are to regulate his growing powers. It is some sort of limiter so it doesn’t make him do his every day stuffs looking like an overpowered kid. But even with the antenna back, Saiki notices he can’t control his motor actions and powers well. During the tug of war, Saiki accidentally rips the rope. He tries to fix it by pulling it together but he pulls the opponents over. Their class wins?

Episode 5D
Now that the class is in 2nd place, they’re getting pretty confident. So they are going to beat class 2 who is top of the rankings. They challenge each other and the loser will have all the boys of the losing class shave their heads like a buzz cut. Not something Saiki wants. During the bean throwing event, Saiki uses his powers to cheat a little. I mean, it doesn’t say using super powers are illegal, right? But another class wins because they use their ‘brains’. They put all the beans in a sack and then throw it into the basket. Isn’t that illegal? In the final relay race, Kaidou makes a bad start but with Nendou’s creepy run, he catches up. It is Hairo’s turn to pass to Saiki the anchor. But he trips! Saiki heard one of the guys cheated by tripping him. No more nice guy so Saiki uses his power to zoom pass the competition. But just before the finish line, he collapses. He still couldn’t control his powers? In the end Hairo, Saiki, Nendou and Kaidou shave their heads but the other guys in their class didn’t because wasn’t the deal only to do so if they lost to class 2?

Episode 5E
The school is going to have a fire drill so Hairo reminds them the importance of the abbreviation SOS. Be prepared to hear SOS puns throughout. As they make their way out, they hit a dead end. Obviously Saiki realizes the class wasn’t paying attention to the announcement that this place is the source of the fire so it is obviously shut off. Hairo then gets this bright idea to smash through the shutter. Of course they get scolded by the teacher for destroying a newly installed shutter. Saiki tells us this drill is useless because a fire at school will never happen thanks to his powers to immediately extinguish it.

Episode 6A
Saiki is weighing his options to buy jelly which is the cheapest and gives him more grams for his money. Unfortunately he ends up buying the most expensive and with the least grams. It better be worth the premium title it states or he’ll burn down the factory! As he rushes home to eat it, somebody’s baseball almost knocks it off his hand. Saiki would want to teach this little kid a lesson but Nendou is with him. Oh no. Now he has to go find the ball with him. Of course Saiki knows he has fling it into the deep ocean. But after hearing how the ball is important to the kid and belonged to his grandpa, Saiki could easily teleport his baseball back but that ability comes with a price as he needs to teleport an equal worth of items. So he ends up sacrificing his jelly. He can get his jelly another time but there will never be another ball for this kid. When he returns home, it seems that kid and his family have dropped 3 of those premium jellies as thanks. Happiest day of his life. One good deed deserves another!

Episode 6B
Saiki notices a shady fortune teller nearby that is attracting lots of customers. He checks it out and Kaidou is currently one of the customers. He can tell Kaidou is being easily scammed because his chuunibyou is so easy to read. Normally Saiki wouldn’t want anything to do with him and leaves but since the fortune teller is selling him an expensive charm that would definitely make him friends with Saiki, you bet he is going to intervene. As the next customer, not sure what Saiki did but the fortune teller instantly refunds the money. Saiki’s intention is that he doesn’t want Kaidou to rely on items to make friends but on his own accord. But that guy already thinks the charm is working.

Episode 6C
Teruhashi once again tries to get Saiki to react to her but to no avail. As Saiki is with Nendou and Kaidou, the latter duo of course give their expected reaction. Because Nendou brings them to a dilapidated ramen shop, Saiki hopes a prideful girl like her will refuse to enter and this will make her likeability with them drop. They won’t hang out with each other anymore and this saves Saiki from future bothers. Surprisingly Kaidou is the one speaking up for Teruhashi. She swallows her pride to enter. Even more shocking to see the ugly owner and served ramen that pigs won’t even eat! But guess what? She swallows her pride and gulps them down! Thanks to that, Saiki’s likeability for her goes up?!

Episode 6D
Toritsuka knows many spirits are friendly and can get information from them. Of course if he wants to know a girl’s panties colour, they won’t really help him. Heck, even ghosts don’t do bad stuffs. In school, he thinks of helping a girl find her lost gym clothes in hopes it will make him famous and likeable among girls. Using his ghost network, he manages to trace the culprit but the last ghost begs and hopes for him to overlooks this. With Toritsuka bent on his determination, he enters the room but the culprit has already fled after hearing his ruckus. The girl thinks he is the true thief and beats him up. Well, at least he got to know her pantsu colour…

Episode 6E
Saiki knows that if he wakes up from a disastrous dream with a headache, it is like a premonition that disaster would happen. Since his dream foretold an explosion, he figures it is from a petrol station near his home. Saiki narrates how something minor like a small stone kicked up can cause a domino effect. It sounds exaggerative but Saiki believes his actions may have also saved many lives. And so nothing happens after Saiki picks up the stone. But then he has another premonition of another explosion. He has no clue where it is this time. Nendou is hit by a rock and shows it to Kaidou thinking it is a meteor. He throws it away but it hits cans of gasoline lined up by Hairo in the hallway. A student trips on a stone which hits the light. The sparks fall down into… Saiki’s hands. Phew. Just in time.

Episode 7A
A cat is stuck between the walls and despite begging for help, he is really obnoxious. Saiki wouldn’t really want to get involved in this but the cat continues to beg. Still, his cocky attitude prevails because he thinks cats are superior to humans! So when he finally says the magic word to help, Saiki helps. But the cat is mad when Saiki doesn’t even pet him as he thinks all humans love petting cats. So how is the cat going to get back at him? He tries to sneak into the house and become their pet. Well, mom is allergic to cats. Out you go.

Episode 7B
What does Saiki hate more than Christmas night? Nendou joining his family for Christmas dinner! When Saiki’s parents learn his dad died young and Santa has never visited him, father goes all out to act as Santa. Yeah, even making Saiki use his ability to teleport a reindeer. It’s a normal deer, by the way. Well, Nendou actually believes he is the real Santa! When dad gives Nendou a present, he notes this is his second present. Why, did Santa never visited him ever? Well, he gets his present not from Santa but from mom who leaves it at his bed while he is asleep. Such good mom…

Episode 7C
Saiki also hates New Year shrine visiting. Especially when dad is praying not to God but for Saiki’s help to win the lottery! Saiki prays for a quiet New Year but apparently God doesn’t exist since here comes Kaidou. He meets his parents who think their wish for Saiki to have more friends is answered. Guess what? Kaidou also wishes for more friends and here comes Hairo. Same thing. Meet the parents. More friends wish. Here comes Nendou. Is it Saiki or is he the only one whose wish isn’t granted?

Episode 7D
Since Nendou doesn’t know how to make a wish, Saiki’s dad teaches him. He makes an example wish like wishing for his son to get a girlfriend. Saiki has a bad feeling about this and true enough his worst fears come true because here comes Teruhashi. Saiki wants to go home and it gets from bad to worse with his parents inviting his friends home for lunch! During that, Saiki’s mom accidentally says that her son has no friends because she is a psychic. A long dead silence of shock… Well, is that the quietness Saiki hoped for? But Saiki isn’t panicking yet because the key is to change the subject and these idiots will forget about it. But his dad sucks and it makes the atmosphere even more awkward.

Episode 7E
When the friends leave, they still can’t get it out of their mind if Saiki is really a psychic. So the only way for Saiki to ‘erase’ this is to use some banana mascot stick to whack their minds! Actually it is supposed to ‘erase’ the word ‘psychic’ from their brains. One downside of this is that he can erase a minute of memory at most. The other big downside is that because of that empty memory space created, the brain will fill it with other made up memories. It can either turn out for the better or worse but in Saiki’s case you know how his friends will remember this in their own twisted ways. Saiki admits he just can’t beat God.

Episode 8A
Everyone fears and hates the PE teacher, Matsuzaki as he always confiscates items in class. But Saiki doesn’t hate him so much since Matsuzaki is an ‘ally’ to timid students like him. Saiki hears Takahashi and his gang are going to get back at Matsuzaki by writing a love letter. Well, they didn’t think he would show up but he did and waited! Takahashi and co are laughing and they are shocked when a girl turns up! Actually it is Saiki in disguise. Matsuzaki straightaway rejects her and why it is inappropriate for them to have a relationship. That is why he waited. Saiki then makes Takahashi and co out of their hiding. Surprisingly Matsuzaki returns their confiscated items. They now respect him and apologize but it seems they have fallen for the female Saiki.

Episode 8B
It is Valentine’s Day as Saiki sees Hairo getting lots of chocolates from girls. Ranging from helping with lawsuits and saving from the clutches of a sabre tooth cat! Kaidou seems to get one too. He is nervous. When he realizes it is from Takahashi, he gets excited. Actually it is from Nendou and just a trick! Poor Kaidou… Nendou then tries to cheer him up since he too didn’t get one. But Kaidou might have the last laugh since a girl calls him to give him hers. Kaidou gives Nendou a sarcastic smirk. Teruhashi is distraught as rumours spread she brought chocolates to school. This means all the guys are annoyingly bugging her. She did bring but it is for Saiki. However thinking how if everyone finds out and they’ll beat him up and start World War 3, she throws it away. Saiki catches it.

Episode 8C
Saiki is home alone and what is worse than Nendou bugging him? His ghost dad! At first he tries to ignore him but he is just persistent. He teleports to a deserted island but he can still follow. Even bombing the island, the ghost can regenerate?! He seeks Toritsuka’s advice and Saiki didn’t really thought about it that only spirits can harm spirits. So Saiki temporarily goes into astral projection to beat up Nendou’s dad. Since Toritsuka is messing with his real body, Saiki returns to physically beat him up.

Episode 8D
Saiki knows his mom always trusts others, that is why she is an easy prey for direct sales scam. Yeah, she really bought lots of useless stuffs and an easy target on the scammer’s list. Of course during the family discussion, the only way is to show their resistance. On the next time, she again gives in easily. This time Saiki helps out by relaying telepathic thoughts of the scammer. Since mommy heard he is planning to scam the family till they go bankrupt, she turns into a demon and hunts him down!

Amazingly Kaidou can keep up with Saiki? Halfway, they pass several boys out of breath. They were trying to keep pace with Hairo and Nendou but couldn’t. At this rate Saiki will end up at a higher rank and doesn’t want that. So he restores everyone’s strength. Hairo can’t believe despite Nendou running backwards, he still can’t keep up. So he cheats by distracting him as he takes first place! Saiki crosses the line at 44th. Did he miss somebody out? Kaidou despite his strength restored, he has already tired out.

Episode 18A
Teruhashi visits Saiki’s house again to learn cooking from his mom. But she got so nervous that she accidentally rang the doorbell of Yuuta’s house. Her beauty doesn’t have any effect on him and he doesn’t like her. Apparently Saiki knew she was coming and was hiding in Yuuta’s house. Dang. Teruhashi starts blushing when mom comments they look like a married couple. Even more when she serves a free cake that she got from the ones she bought but had love designs all over. However hate starts building up inside as Yuuta calls her aunty (a taboo word in her long list apparently), eats the cake barbarically and tells her to shut it when he is watching Cider Man. She feels sad and leaves. Saiki feels bad but has no choice as Yuuta is his weapon against her. Yuuta then sees a character in Cider Man that looks like Teruhashi. Actually they don’t look alike at all! There goes Saiki’s secret weapon since Yuuta is now attached to Teruhashi.

Episode 18B
Saiki is at a restaurant and forgot his wallet. As he doesn’t want to stand out, he can’t call his parents for money knowing how annoying they are. Yeah, his dumb friends won’t do either. The only choice is to teleport exchange items close to its value and trade it up. As items in his room aren’t enough, he starts exchanging stuffs from others. This means his father now got his pants down in front of a female colleague, which leads to Nendou is eating his belt, which leads to Kaidou eating his lunch, which leads to Toritsuka having his study, which leads to dad holding his porn. Yeah, arrested. Eventually Saiki has enough to pay and leaves. He would love to repay them someday but seeing the trouble they are facing, perhaps washing dishes was the better option.

Episode 18C
Anp breaks Saiki’s dad’s mecha. Dad pleads for it to be restored. Restored. In its unassembled form. Start from scratch again. Anp thinks Saiki has opened up to him when he carries him. But it is just to put him outside. As he makes a commotion, he sees something rolling by and eats it. He chokes on it so dad becomes concerned. Saiki reduces his size to take out a mecha part from his throat. As he can’t go back to normal size yet, it is inconvenient to go to the toilet but he finds a coin under the fridge. Then he spots a cockroach. Run! He has to borrow dad’s mecha to fight it but luckily Anp easily smacks it dead. Saiki has renewed respect for Anp and treats him nicely.

Matsuzaki chides him for his delinquent behaviour and wants to see him graduate. Though, Kongou blames Saiki he wanted to extort money for his haircut. Kongou tries to extort from other students. Normally Saiki wouldn’t care but seeing how his school’s reputation is at stake, he makes him say a retard word. So Kongou uses his own money to get a haircut. But it is a dangerous one so Saiki has the barber do a buzz cut. Next day, Kongou is going to get violent on Saiki but he sends telepathic images into his mind how Matsuzaki had to apologize to everyone for his behaviour. He is so touched that he changes into a good guy! Who is this unrecognizable guy?! He wants to graduate. Matsuzaki is shocked to see his change.

Episode 18E
Saiki is only joining his class’ karaoke is because the joint makes some great parfait and the waiting time makes it worthwhile. As his order is at the bottom, we hear Teruhashi being a goddess so much so everyone clamours around her and doesn’t give a damn when Kaidou is up. Saiki is mad when somebody’s order of the parfait came first. Now he has to wait another while. When Nendou sings, he wants a duet with Saiki! So he teleports to the toilet to wait till it’s over. When he returns, everyone is close to dead! Nendou’s singing kills! And he thinks he sang everyone to sleep! Lucky his parfait is here. Too bad the waiter didn’t make it. However it is his turn to sing. He asks Nendou to sing a duet with him. Everyone bolts out in instantly! Oh yeah. Now to enjoy in peace.

Episode 19A
Saiki and his family visit his grandparents in the mountains. While grandma is a nice person, the biggest bother is grandpa. Your typical unsociable tough male pride. Though his grandparents do not know about Saiki’s powers, Saiki can still read their thoughts and this is the real reason grandpa is a real pain in the ass: He is actually tsundere! He loves Saiki and his mom but hates his dad. So despite his cold behaviour in front of them, behind another room he is just squealing in delight!

Episode 19B
We know he is so happy they can stay here for a few days although he would’ve wanted them to stay for 3 years! He is happy hearing Saiki would come bring him cake to his room. Imagine his disgust when it is Saiki’s dad instead. So when Saiki himself comes, he wastes his opportunity to talk to him by acting his usual tsundere. Saiki gives him another chance although they just sat there quietly eating the cake.

Episode 19C
Next day they visit the amusement park. It is so rundown that it could break apart any time. Maybe right now because a screw just came loose! Yeah, the only ride Saiki wants is to ride home. Too bad grandpa got free tickets. And they have to sign a waiver before riding. Saiki’s dad has the scariest ride of his life since his safety belt came off. Of course Saiki held him down and grandpa got jealous he took advantage of it. So while dad is out with mom, grandpa rides in the Ferris Wheel with Saiki. He needs to say something quick. So he badmouths dad as pathetic. Sure, dad may be an idiot but it is still his dad. Thus Saiki uses his power to shake the Ferris Wheel to scare grandpa. However grandpa covers Saiki and promises to protect him. Saiki has renewed respect for grandpa and maybe he is just different than dad. But seeing him out like dad, maybe they’re the same after all.

Episode 19D
Saiki’s family will be leaving for home. Grandpa drives them home but would love for them to stay longer. Because train schedules are far and apart, grandpa devised a plan by siphoning fuel from the car the night before. Out of gas and too far to walk to the station. Saiki saw this coming and put the gas back in the boot. As they drive along, an avalanche blocks the road. Grandpa is happy. The only way is for Saiki to use his powers. Well, it is about time his grandparents should know. Grandma has always known something was off because of mom’s nervous habits. So after they reveal Saiki’s power and has him demonstrate a few of them, his grandparents are shock beyond words. Grandpa thought if Saiki had teleportation, he could have come see him more often. Then he realizes. Could he also read minds of others? Loud and clear.

Episode 19E
A new video game came out and Saiki wanted to buy it but somehow Nendou blocked him. So he requested mom to buy it when he is at school today. However Saiki has to face challenges in the form of his classmates who are trying to get in his way. So like a video game simulator, he selects choices to ‘progress’. Then it turns out that this whole thing is the game he is playing. But it is not a game about Saiki. The reason why everybody looks so familiar is because Saiki used his hypnosis powers on us to make the characters look so.

Episode 20A
Toritsuka has been using spirits of people resembling dead famous people like John Lennon, Bruce Lee and Steve Jobs to get chicks. Really. He is super popular! Now he has a harem! However relying too much of them means he has no control over his body as the spirits take turns to possess him as they want to relive the moment of being alive. With possessed Toritsuka changing personalities and acting odd, by the time Saiki chases the spirits away, the girls already lose interest in him. Seeing how desperate Toritsuka is, he wants to date Saiki who is in the form of a girl!

Episode 20B
Toritsuka wanted to join clubs to get the chicks. Thanks to his dumb and failed camouflage as a girl, obviously they’re not going to let him in. The only way is to create his own club. The occult club. It seems only this girl, Arisu Makino is interested. Yeah, she needed to join a club to do a ritual that requires sacrifice of 6 humans! Unfortunately she isn’t cute. Kaidou wants to join and because of that Yumehara too. Toritsuka won’t let boys join so Yumehara threatens to quit too. Saiki decides to test their love by temporarily turning off the lights. While Kaidou and Yumehara have no change, surprisingly Toritsuka is now in love with Arisu!

Episode 20C
Saiki is motivated for home economics class because they are making crepes. Too bad he chose the wrong people in his group. He thought Nendou and Kuboyasu couldn’t cook but they are great. So he is stuck with noobs like Kaidou and Hairo. Yeah, they literally burn their food or turn it into some creepy dark magic face. Each time their food is wasted, Mera goes to ‘collect’. Eventually with them wasting so much ingredients and Mera eventually eating them all up, Saiki is glad Nendou wants to share his. Hope you like tuna salad crepes…

Episode 20D
Saiki realizes a certain movement is now making their move. They are of course Teruhashi’s secret fan club and with all the pictures taken between Saiki and Teruhashi together, you bet they are going to put a stop to this. Saiki allows himself to be kidnapped seeing if he gets purged by them is the only way to make Teruhashi stop bugging him. Saiki didn’t realize Sawakita who is his classmate is the leader of this movement. We see all of them display their creepy twisted love for Teruhashi. As they all decide what to do with Saiki, the ultimate kill is when they think Saiki had a secret baby with her (that moment with Yuuta). They really want to purge him but Sawakita reminds them Teruhashi’s happiness is most important even at the cost of their lives. Because if they hurt Saiki, she will be hurt. So they all just leave him alone and left, much to Saiki’s disappointment. He didn’t get purged…

Episode 20E
Saiki is puzzled that everyone and everything seems to be making puns or named after 100. Yeah, no matter how silly everything is, they just have to use 100. Why do they love this number? Can you guess it? There is even a counter keeping the number of times this number is referenced. So once we reach 100, Saiki learns that this episode is the 100th overall. And then everything stops and returns to normal.

Episode 21A
A baseball accidentally hits off Saiki’s antenna. Now his powers are out of control. He has to be very careful. If you’re asking why he can’t just turn back time, he is afraid it will go back 7 years! So luckily he manages to teleport back to his home. Right in the midst between his parents before they’re starting to make out! They realize his antenna is broken but since they can’t fix it, there is only one person who can. Oh no. Saiki doesn’t like that person. It is his elder brother, Kuusuke in London.

Episode 21B
So here they are in London and Saiki to prevent from overusing his powers is now like a vegetable. His parents are having fun around London instead of getting this done. Eventually Kuusuke comes to see them. It is obvious the brothers hate each other. Flashback reveals Kuusuke was born a genius. He is a reason why the parents aren’t shocked when Saiki was born. Note, Kuusuke has no psychic powers. Because of that, Saiki always unwittingly beats him in anything. After Kuusuke fixes the antenna, Saiki is shocked he can’t read Kuusuke’s mind.

Episode 21C
Flashback reveals Kuusuke always tries to do better than his brother but fails. Because Saiki always ends up doing even better! Got perfect 100% in all tests? Saiki got 9 million!!! WTF??!!! So when Kuusuke reached 14 years old, he decided to go to London to study. After earning his PhD, he created something that would block out Saiki reading his mind. He wants Saiki to come to his lab. After losing another round of rock-scissors-paper to him, it seems Kuusuke has kept count exactly all the losses for every game they have played! Kuusuke won none! Thus he wants to play a game of tag that covers the entire region of London. He can use whatever transportation within the 3 hour limit to get away. Win and he will treat him to this hotel’s desserts. But Saiki is further shocked that Kuusuke has brought Nendou and Kaidou. He did so to surprise Saiki and will have them help him out in this game.

Episode 21D
As the game begins, the tube is on strike and the queue for the bus is long. Saiki believes Kuusuke has calculated for this and is closing in. They run away via bicycle but Kuusuke comes chasing in a bike! Saiki then realizes his antenna serves as a tracker for his GPS. Trying to hide in crowded places, Kuusuke makes an announcement to make them look like offenders and has the crowd chase and corner them in a toilet cubicle. Kuusuke thinks he is about to win but he got to wrong toilet. Saiki and co are on a different storey because GPS is flat and can’t tell the difference between levels. Another loss for Kuusuke. While enjoying the desserts, it is revealed that Kuusuke is a masochist and loves losing to him. That is why Saiki hates him.

Episode 21E
So Kuusuke takes out his frustrations by badmouthing Kaidou and Nendou? Since they have some time before they flight, they visit the art museum. Kaidou suddenly becomes an art connoisseur with fancy comments. Well, can’t argue with that. It’s art. Even this freaking doodle Nendou drew in 3 seconds. Because of that, the museum director thinks he has potential. Kaidou won’t lose out and draws a scary doodle. Not art? Well, this famous contemporary artist says it is! Man, we don’t get art.

Episode 22A
Saiki thought he will have a whole month of vacation without those nuisances. However here they all come to bug him to join whatever activities. Saiki tries to evade them all and gives a reason of being busy with his club but once the rest realize their activities do not overlap, they sign up Saiki for their club activities. Yeah, whole month gone. He only has one day left of freedom. Oh, mom put that as a date with Teruhashi. So the first club activity is with the occult club. It is obvious Toritsuka and Yumehara wants to attract Arisa and Kaidou respectively. So they ‘team up’.

Episode 22B
During the kimodameshi, they try to rig the pairings. Yeah, Arisa and Kaidou would prefer to be Saiki’s partner. Saiki undoes the rigging as Toritsuka ends up with Yumehara. But they start falling in love with each other when he saves her from tripping. But when a wild boar attacks, Toritsuka runs away for himself, leaving her behind. I guess their romance ended there. Next, Saiki joins in Hairo’s tennis club. Nendou is also roped in. The coach sees Nendou as a prodigy due to his supernatural strength. When Hairo challenges Nendou, Nendou wants Saiki to play as his partner.

Episode 22C
The match is mainly Hairo and Nendou trying to outdo each other. Saiki plans to end this by hitting it out so the rest will think he sucks and will not bug him to join. However he hits too far out of range. They now love him! Nearby is Mera hallucinating because she ate some poisonous mushroom. Nendou joins her? Saiki soon attends a shady lab test with Mera and Nendou. Everything screams shady but since Saiki read the doctor’s mind, the pills are just placebo. However the next day he notices Mera’s boobs gone and Nendou’s right arm bulging big! Thinking it is the pill’s side effect, he uses his power to revert back to before.

Episode 22D
However as more days passed, the weirder their body gets. From being giants to getting old. So much so Saiki has to sneakily substitute their pill with his snack. At the end of the trial, the doctor reveals the pills were all placebo. But Saiki points out to Nendou and Mera still having side effects (buffed up!). The doctor explains a certain poisonous mushroom causes those effects and it is harmless as they will return to normal after an hour. Yeah, looks like it was Saiki who was affected the most by this experiment. Now Saiki joins Kaidou and Kuboyasu in getting a motorbike licence. They hit the driving school but the baldy instructor loves making BKB puns as he makes Kaidou lift a very heavy bike and Kuboyasu is alien to road signs. But after seeing their determination not to give up, he passes them. Everyone is happy celebrating that they forgot to get their licence. Except for Saiki who already got them.

Episode 22E
It must be a depressing day for Teruhashi at the amusement park. What is supposed to be a date with Saiki turns out looking like a family outing since he brought Yuuta! It’s a good thing he did as you don’t know how many “Ohs” she is planning to make him say. Teruhashi is further dumbfounded when Yuuta doesn’t want to sit any rides but is here for the hero show. As part of the show, the monster takes Teruhashi hostage. Because she is so darn pretty, the hero and monster fight to get her attention. Eventually the monster knocks out the hero. Who will save the day? Yuuta bugs Saiki AKA Cider Man No. 2 for the job! Then the crowd also makes Saiki go up to rescue so he has no choice but to defeat the monster. Teruhashi hugs him like how rescued damsels always do but Saiki isn’t impressed.

Episode 23A
Oh no. We’re getting another transfer student? But Metori Saiko is not just an ordinary kid. He is filthy rich! Yeah, his family owns a conglomerate. He transfers into Saiki’s class, flaunts his wealth and tells everyone he doesn’t intend to be their friends. So why is here in the first place? Ah, he wants to make Teruhashi his wife! You’d think her fan club would be against it but he has bought them out with his money and now they are his lackeys! Saiko makes his move on Teruhashi and Saiki knows it will be trouble. As he races to reach her, he enters too late as he hears Teruhashi rejecting Saiko because she loves Saiki! Gasp!

Episode 23B
Saiki pretends to be asleep to bluff her he didn’t hear that. You’d think it would be the end of it but here is how a rich kid does his revenge. Mugami is harassed with a fake scandal and Saiki’s dad is to be transferred to Siberia! Soon Saiki’s friends also have indirect harassment as he tells them to think carefully before messing with him. But Saiki knows he picked the wrong guy to mess with. Outside Saiko’s mansion, Teruhashi’s fan club boys revolt. Because Teruhashi is looking sad. Saiki in a mask faces off with Saiko who thought he could buy him out. But Saiki scatters the money outside. It is Saiko’s bodyguards scrambling for it and the fan boys ignoring them to beat the SPs up. Saiki then notes if he really wanted to buy him out it would have been a mountain of his favourite jelly.

Episode 23C
Saiki’s grandparents are here to visit. Just in time when dad was about to make love with mom. You can bet tsundere grandpa beats him up. So as they go shopping in town, grandpa continues to treat dad badly. The ladies didn’t like this bullying and leave him alone. Saiki is worried about that as he spies on grandpa. It looks like he is about to get into a fight with Nendou but they become good friends! Grandpa is in a dilemma to buy a present for his grandson so Nendou has a few suggestions. Eventually he got a pair of glasses and as he hands it like a tsundere, Saiki switches with dad. Though it wasn’t his intention, the ladies are glad thinking the guys made up. Ah well, this isn’t so bad.

Episode 23D
Kaidou invites his friends for Halloween at his place. Saiki shows up in his normal attire. Hairo and Kuboyasu have no idea what it is so they go to the cheap store to buy cheap stuffs. Hairo has a plastic bag over his head and Kuboyasu is supposed to be a mummy but wrapped in toilet paper. Nendou arrives in his normal outfit but others think he is a real monster! They brought weird pumpkins or char siew. When kids come to trick or treat, they are alien to this so they get shot in the face with some stinky water.

Episode 23E
Saiko is depressed ever since he lost. But his father (shining like God so much so you can’t see his face or body because of too much jewellery!) won’t allow him to lose. So when he confronts Saiki and co, they aren’t going to entertain him. Except Nendou. Thinking this is the perfect guy to make as his lackey and get his revenge, he treats him to food while trying to buy him with money. Nendou accepts whatever food he treats but declines each time Saiko throws money to be his lackey. He is baffled with Nendou wanting to be equal friends. When Nendou wants to treat him back, Saiko throws down the ultimatum to take his money or not. Because dad always told him there is nothing in this world money can’t buy! Nendou takes his money. But he empties it and throws the case into the river as floating device to save a drowning boy. Actually Saiki has a help in making it float since aluminium casing is pretty heavy. This leaves Saiko disillusioned. He threw away money to save a kid he doesn’t know. He thinks father has lied to him.

Episode 24A
Chouno and his assistant are super famous magicians. Not kidding! Thus Saiki gets a ticket to his show. But wait a minute. Why is it more of a gag comedy than a magic show? Well, everyone is laughing. At the backstage, Chouno thanks Saiki and tells him how they have incorporated comedy into magic from their failures. Saiki is happy for them but as he leaves, he hears a jealous magician not too pleased of being the opening act. This dude thinks Saiki has something to do with Chouno and decides to make him show his magic. Get a little taste of his psychic power.

Episode 24B
Yumehara is fat! Teruhashi can’t bring herself to tell her but Mera is sure hell blunt as she mistakes her to be a pig and tries to eat her! Once she realizes she is fat, she tries to do some jogging and sit-ups. Saiki is also shock to see her new form and knows she won’t lose weight at this rate since her mind is only filled with sweets. Saiki is not obligated to help her but will do so as he understands her struggle. So he makes her see visions of Kaidou who hates fat girls and this gives her the motivation to continue. When he returns later in the day, he is shocked to see her still at it. Peeking into her mind, Kaidou has turned into some sadistic bastard and she’s loving it! Lucky for her, Yumehara turns back into her hot body. When Kaidou speaks to her, she prostrates like a slave and will do anything at his command.

Episode 24C
During the break between the class, Saiki can’t catch a break because every damn supporting character comes up to his face to bug him about something. Like as though they want to get their 2 seconds of fame especially for those characters who don’t get to appear much. So when class restarts, Saiki thought this would be his reprieve but the hot beautiful teacher has him solve problems on the board.

Episode 24D
Saiki knows something is up with his friends as they ignore him. He thinks they are bullying him but he knows they are planning a surprise birthday for him tomorrow. Minus Nendou, the gang are happy their plan to keep it a surprise is going well. They can’t wait to see his surprised face! Well, Saiki notes that he himself is already surprise by this. Because tomorrow isn’t his birthday and is only in 3 months! So whose birthday is it? His dad. They discuss the presents they will give him. Hairo a carved sculpture, Teruhashi and Yumehara will bake a cake with his face, Kuboyasu and Mera has recorded a video of random people wishing him happy birthday and finally when you think Kaidou’s letter is his typical chuunibyou, it is actually a heartfelt friendship letter! OMG! So touching! Did he really write that?! But the next day, Saiki goes straight home after school instead of cleaning duties. Kaidou initiates the next plan to gather outside his house and pop the surprise. But what if somebody else answers? Just do it! Luckily Saiki opens and he looks really surprised. Actually, it is Saiki’s father whom Saiki placed a hypnosis on everyone to make him look like himself in the eyes of others. When Nendou arrives, he thought he saw 2 Saikis. Luckily quick thinking Saiki hides behind a mirror. Phew.

Episode 24E
As the friends continue to celebrate in his home, it gets awkward because the friends are asking about Saiki’s parents and dad thought they’re asking about his dead parents. During the break, Saiki manages to explain to him and wants him to continue to play along. When he returns, the guys are chiding him of brushing off his parents’ death lightly. The friends show their presents but each time it gets broken, Saiki uses his power to revert it back. After having some fun, dad wants Saiki to switch. For the first time, dad is being an assertive dad telling him to go join them. He understands he didn’t want to so as to not hurt their feelings. But he is wrong. They came for him. Even if he ends up hurting them, he should go. Saiki is just about to join in when he hears them wondering despite he is happy, he looks distant. Is he forcing himself to go along with them? Screw all the overthinking. Saiki just enters to join them. Let the party continue.

Psycho Comebacks
Safe to say that I was having so much fun laughing and enjoying all the silly antics that before I knew it, it is already over. Could this be my new favourite nonsensical comedy taking over Gintama? I wouldn’t put it that way. Gintama has its own silly and wonderful charms. This series has its own silly and wonderful charms. It’s like comparing apples to oranges. Even though I enjoyed this series as much, I can’t compare between them as they are worlds apart. More importantly, as long as this anime is good (for my standards), that is already good enough for me. It doesn’t need me to start comparing to others. Oh wait. I just broke that rule…

Originally the anime was aired as separate 5 minute episodes on weekdays. At the end of every week, these short compilations are then compiled to make a single episode. Thus the reason why the series is conveniently divided into 5 minute short skits. The bite size length makes it easier to watch and enjoy although some of them are one long ‘arcs’ divided into several parts. Thus the comedic effect are fast and spontaneous, keeping the flow of laughter at a speedy but not too frenzy pace, sometimes making the comebacks unexpected.

Thanks to the gag comedy feature of this anime, all the main and supporting characters are just lovable despite how stupid and idiotic they are. Even more hilarious when their personalities clash. Even with Saiko as the ‘antagonist’, you’ll find it hard to hate him because he is just as silly as everyone. Each of the characters has their own distinct personality and despite once you’ll get to know what they really are and they stay the same throughout the series, you won’t get tired of it even though they keep spamming the same recurring jokes based on their personality. Because it would really suck if their character would start changing from what has been established. We want everyone to be idiots! So never change, Saiki and co. But there is enough variety in the jokes to make it feel fresh and keep coming back for more.

Now, Saiki may come off as the most serious and least nonsensical among the gang but I assure you that he is as idiotic as the rest albeit to a much lesser degree (maybe because he rarely puts on a smile?). As the main character, it looks like his main role and entire life is to be the king of comebacks, which is the main staple of this series and what most of the gags in this anime revolves around. You would think that Saiki has always been troubled by his usual nuisances and despite he is, he never loses his cool or temper. My theory is that he really considers them as his friends despite he might not want to admit it himself. Despite their flaws and being a pest, they still have their own pride that is enough to constitute what it takes for a friendship. Noticed even how if he got dragged into activities he doesn’t want to participate, he still goes along with it? He could have not given a f*ck and walk away. But he sees through it partly because he doesn’t any more trouble and also he really likes their company! Don’t be surprised. He might be tsundere! Just like grandpa! It runs in the family…

Saiki isn’t 100% invincible since he has his own ‘weaknesses’ in the form of his favourite jelly and his uncontrollable powers once his antenna is not working. As he takes great caution not to misuse his powers so as not to stand out, he is the epitome of that overused superhero line, “With great powers come great responsibility”. On a trivial note, it is hard to figure if Saiki ever opens his mouth and converses. Because from our point of view he is always talking through his thoughts. Yeah, easier to animate, right?

The rest of the characters help ramp up the comedic effect and like I’ve said, because of how dumb and idiotic they are, it is hard to hate them. Like Hairo and his ever energetic positivism (whatever happened to his accidental butt showing that started off as a running joke?), Kaidou’s chuunibyou and tendency to act tough but is actually a wuss when it comes to the real deal, Mera’s poor background that makes her work everywhere and a one who is hard-up and do anything for food, Toritsuka and his perverted desires and Kuboyasu trying hard to not go back to his delinquent past.

Nendou is a wild card and might look like the biggest idiot. But he is also the biggest friend that anyone would have. Or not. This guy is true to his heart and life. He says what is on his mind and is honest to goodness despite sometimes his thinking and methods are as awkward as f*ck. But he treasures his friendship a lot. Yeah, I guess as annoying as he may be, being friends with him isn’t perfect and comes with a few quirks. You just need to deal with it. He could be up for the best character of the series since his mom and deceased dad are pretty much wacko and like his clones. I would love to know why he is the only person whom Saiki cannot read his mind. Maybe he actually does not think. Everything is just spontaneous. Hey, can’t read one’s mind if one isn’t thinking in the first place. We were hoping maybe Teruhashi would finally get Saiki’s heart? Why do I have a feeling that it will never work out so long as this gag anime exists? Perhaps she is the only character with some sort of change. Initially wanting to get Saiki to be in awe for her, slowly you can tell she starts falling for him despite she is still under the impression to awe him. It would have been nice for boyfriend-hopping Yumehara to have been a potential for Saiki’s harem but that girl has moved on to Kaidou. Another clueless guy in love…

The other minor characters too are fun. Like Saiki’s parents who are totally wacko in their own way. Because Saiki’s dad must be one of those useless fathers who depends on his son to get him out of whatever fix. And then there is this shady job he does. Although we know he works in an editorial department of a magazine, but it seems most of the work he does is licking his boss’ shoes… I know. His running joke. I suppose the final episode of him actually like a real dad is supposed to remind us that he is still a dad. Nah! Better he continues to play the idiot. Don’t forget his tsundere grandpa who could be one of the very few male tsunderes in the world, the masochistic Kuusuke, Yuuta who loves Cider Man so much that he sees its characters everywhere, failed magician Chouno, Anp the show’s (short-lived) mascot who wants humans to bow before his feline species, siscon Mugami and Matsuzaki who seems to play the strict and fierce teacher but usually for the sake of his students.

In between the skits and episodes especially in the latter half of the series, a short variety segment to test your psychic skills. Of course this short part is also for some laughs as it feels more than luck than anything psychic. Because if you’re a normal person like me without any psychic powers, getting none right is the norm. So the variety of ‘psychic tests’ includes guessing the winner of a 100m race, guessing the opponent would put up rock or scissors or paper, guessing the missing blank word Toritsuka would say and guessing which of the cards is hiding a certain character. If you get any one of them right, don’t be too happy thinking you’re a psychic. Not some latent psychic power that made you arrive at that answer even if you think it is. It’s just luck. Plain luck. That’s all.

Hiroshi Kamiya is recognizable as Saiki despite playing a character with a very deadpan voice. Other recognizable casts are Yukari Tamura as Yumehara, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Anp, Showtaro Morikubo, as Chouno and Satoshi Hino as Hairo. At first I had this dilemma wondering if Mamiko Noto was behind Saiki’s mom. Something felt odd. Was she trying too hard to sound like an overly cute mom? Well, it was Rikako Aikawa as Saiki’s mom (Hare in Hare+Guu). The most surprising one I find is Daisuke Ono as Nendou. Yes, this guy who was Kuroshitsuji’s Sebastian voicing a rough sounding character? Wow. So different. No wonder I couldn’t recognize him. Never in a million years. It’s a refreshing thing to hear him voice a very different role. Sometimes it’s good to break the mould once in a while otherwise like yours truly starts pigeon holing and stereotyping their voice for certain roles.

The other casts are Nobunaga Shimazaki as Kaidou (Shido in Date A Live), Ai Kayano as Teruhashi (Inori in Guilty Crown), Natsuki Hanae as Toritsuka (Inaho in Aldnoah.Zero), Maaya Uchida as Mera (Rikka in Chuunibyou Demo Koi Ga Shitai), Yoshimasa Hosoya as Kuboyasu (Reiner in Shingeki No Kyojin), Masaya Matsukaze as Saiko (Ren in Jigoku Shoujo), Kenji Nojima as Kuusuke (Yuuto in High School DxD), Tomoaki Maeno as Mugami (Schubert in ClassicaLoid), Tarou Yamaguchi as Matsuzaki (Borma in Ghost In The Shell series), Yumiko Kobayashi as Yuuta (Sarah in Love Hina), Taishi Murata as Takahashi (Ibusaki in Shokugeki No Souma) and Mitsuo Iwata as Saiki’s dad (Ivankov in One Piece). Amazingly there are many other casts although they play very small roles like extra characters in the background. Many of them too voice multiple minor roles. It’s not like we’re going to really recognize them, right?

The first opening, Seishun Wa Zankoku Ja Nai by Natsuki Hanae sounds not too bad but I can’t help feel that he sounds a bit gay. Maybe playing Toritsuka for a while made him sound so? The same can be said for the second ending theme, Kokoro which is also sung by him. I would have love this song very much because the beat gave me the nostalgia feel that it sounded like Johnny Hates Jazz’s songs like Turn Back The Clock and Shattered Dreams. If you love denpa songs, then the first ending theme should suit your taste. Sai Psi Sai Kouchou by Dempagumi Inc is filled with craziness that it doesn’t sound that bad. The frantic pace of the music and the crazy sound effects make it quite a decent song. Though they try to replicate this for the second opening theme, Psi Desu I Like You also by Dempagumi Inc, but personally this one doesn’t feel as catchy as the former. There are a few BGMs too and one that somehow reminds me of Flash Gordon… That spacey feel… Cool!

The art and drawing are bright and vivid although the character designs have a bit of this cartoonish feel. It works for a gag anime to enhance the comedic effect. I mean when you see Nendou and he has got this very obvious butt chin sticking out like a sore butt thumb, you know that almost everyone else is going to look a bit odd or funny. Like Hairo’s spikey hair that could almost rival a Super Saiyan, Takahashi looking like a clown without all the clown makeup and Teruhashi’s bright aura around her like as though she is some goddess. Is she? This anime is animated by a collaboration between a veteran studio and a relatively new one, J.C. Staff and Egg Firm. Egg what?

Overall, this is a very funny and entertaining series that you should watch if you are looking for a laugh. Or many laughs. Something that money can never buy. *Smirks*. Everything might be awkward and silly but you should have expected that this series isn’t based on logic anyway. So successful this series that it doesn’t take a psychic to tell that there is going to be a second season. We hope Saiki won’t use his powers to change the perception and the law of the world. Because he would have done so if he wanted a more peaceful life. So what does this tell us about him? He wants more idiotic chaos! Or maybe we have already been under Saiki’s control and perception ever since we watched this series… Oh who cares? As long as we are happy having our mindless fun and laughter, right? Now to find that black coffee jello as offering for Saiki…
