Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan (Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan) is a supernatural, comedy manga written and illustrated by Shuuichi Asou. The series began as a series of one-shot chapters in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump and Shueisha’s Jump Next! magazines in 2011, before being picked up as a full series under Weekly Shonen Jump in mid 2012. To date a total of 17 volumes have been published. An ONA was produced in late 2013 from Opera House (Pyuu to Fuku! Jaguar). The series has also inspired three voice comics, two novels and an appearance in the 2014 Shonen Jump’s J-Stars Victory VS video game.
Here is the series synopsis from MAL:
Saiki Kusuo has a wide array of superpowers at his command, including telepathy and telekinesis. This might sound awesome, but, in Kusuo’s experience, superpowers are not all they’re cracked up to be. He tries to live a normal life, despite his annoying abilities.
The Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan TV anime is being produced and will air this July on TV Tokyo, during the Summer 2016 anime season. Further information about the sieres will be revealed in the upcoming weeks.
