Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan 2 Episode 12 Impressions

Another amazing episode. Episode 11 impressions post here.

Synopsis: Saiki is a psychic. He can do pretty much anything, but there are limits to his powers. He hides his psychic abilities from his friends and his life is full of disastrous moments that he has to deal with. The English title of this anime is “The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.”

Even though this was staged, I like the gyaru the most out of the girls in the show. I think that her and Saiki are cute together.

Does this mean that Saiki was behind the recaps all along?

Saiki looking cool.

… Not creepy at all. That smile though.

This is true. Saiki actually knows so much about people. High EQ.

Pfft, this greeting… I love it. (Saiki is able to talk to animals.)

What?? (For context, Saiki, Nendou, and their friends were stranded on an island in a previous episode. The hamster was there all along but we never knew.)

Tsundere confirmed.

Some context: Satou is an ordinary guy. I like how Saiki has Satou’s physical education scores.

Uh… not creepy at all…

UHH…

SAIKI!!!

……………..

……………..

……………..

This is the first time Saiki has wanted to be friends with someone! Usually, he thinks that people are too bothersome or too much trouble. I like how no one else notices Satou except for Saiki.

Thoughts: I adore Saiki but the stalking was… It was a little too creepy for me.

Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan 2 Episode 11 Impressions

Episode 1 Impressions here.

Originally, I was going to write about every episode. I’ve already made folders of screenshots from each episode. But I’ve changed my mind and have decided to only blog about my favourite episodes. Episode 11 was too good.

Synopsis: Saiki is a psychic. He can do pretty much anything, but there are limits to his powers. He hides his psychic abilities from his friends and his life is full of disastrous moments that he has to deal with. The English title of this anime is “The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.”

I actually notice when shows do this.

I knew he was going to talking about handholding. Still, it was a cute scene.

Unpopular opinion, but I don’t like Teruhashi. Another unpopular opinion: I love Saiki’s brother, Kusuke. If you didn’t know, Kusuke is exactly the kind of character I like in anime. This scene was very satisfying.

Saiki’s life is anything but ordinary. It’s disastrous. Seeing Saiki so excited about an ordinary guy is so funny and cute.

Saiki is so nosy! Just look at him hiding behind the pole watching the ordinary guy. He’s a very caring and protective person though so I think it’s okay.

A little context: Saiki wears thin gloves at all times. If he touches an object with his bare hands, he will see the history behind the object. If he touches a book, he will probably see a flashback of a previous reader spoiling the book’s ending. His glove tears and he sees a love story between two people who borrowed the same book. However, he only sees little snippets of their love story and it keeps ending on a cliffhanger. He has no choice but to keep touching the rest of the books in the series (which also means spoiling the books).

I told you Saiki is very nosy.

He’s talking about the pacing of the love story between the readers, not the actual book plot hahaha.

It’s all about the IRL love story now. Who cares about the book series?

I left out screenshots of the love story on purpose, but it’s actually wild. You should watch the episode for yourself!

Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan 2 Episode 1 Impressions

I binged Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan and really enjoyed it. Now that I’m on Season 2, I thought that I would write my thoughts about each episode. I did this with Shield Hero and it was a lot of fun. This is a comedy anime.

Synopsis: Saiki is a psychic. He can do pretty much anything, but there are limits to his powers. He hides his psychic abilities from his friends and his life is full of disastrous moments that he has to deal with. The English title of this anime is “The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.”

There’s a lot of “Breaking the fourth wall” scenes.

Saiki being cute.

The classic “running to school with toast in mouth” trope. Normally, this would feel overused but when you have the context (hoping to bump into her crush, Kaidou, it becomes a lot funnier).

This is the third Christmas but I’m pretty sure it hasn’t been three years…

You can really understand Saiki’s feelings by looking at this frame.

Commercial bumper (signals the start and end of the commercial break). Why is the art style so different!? I’m not complaining though.

I really like this shot. Maybe this is what life is about…

To Saiki, bliss is eating his favourite desserts and watching television without interruptions. He just wants a simple life. I’m starting to really resonate with this.

Saiki being cute again.

When the anime references the mangaka.

When the TV starts playing the anime’s opening theme!

Now it’s referencing other anime. This show is too much… but I love it.


I planned to post my impressions of several episodes together but as you can see, there’s so much content in just the first episode. This anime helps you relax and watching this is a nice break from everything that’s going on.

If you like Sakamoto Desu ga? then I think you will like this anime. It’s a little like Mob Psycho 100, but it’s more focused on comedy rather than a coherent storyline. If you’re interested in Saiki K, start with Season 1!

I’ll be continuing my episodic impressions.
