The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. (Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan) will get a second anime season! It was revealed on 23 July 2017 at the ‘TV Anime ‘The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.’ Special Event ~Sawage! Manatsu no PK Gakuen Bunka Psi~’ which took place in Chiba at the Maihama Amphitheater. It will start airing early 2018.
The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. is a school gag manga by Shuichi Aso, which depicts the life of Kusuo Saiki (who was born with very special abilities) and the everyday lives of him and his friends at school. It is being serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump. On 21 October, a live action adaptation will be released in Japanese cinemas with Kento Yamazaki as Kusuo Saiki. The first season of the anime aired between July and December 2016.
Guests attending the ‘~Sawage! Manatsu no PK Gakuen Bunka Psi~’ event were Hiroshi Kamiya (voice of Kusuo Saiki), Daisuke Ono (Riki Nendo), Nobunaga Shimazaki (Shun Kaido), Satoshi Hino (Kineshi Hairo), Natsuki Hanae (Reita Toritsuka) and Mitsuo Iwata (Kuniharu Saiki). During the ‘Psi Kakunin Corner!!’, they talked about the favorite scenes of the viewers (surveyed before the event), and the six cast members talked about their memories from the recording.
Following the announcement of the second season, the cast was asked various questions like ‘Which character do you want to see in Season 2?’ and ‘What do you want to happen in Season 2?’. After that, they asked questions like ‘Which of Saiki’s abilities would you like do have?’, and the cast had to guess each other’s answers. Aside from that, there was also a ‘Telepathy’ segment, where the cast aimed to do the same.
