Synopsis

To the average person, psychic abilities might seem a blessing; for Kusuo Saiki, however, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Gifted with a wide assortment of supernatural abilities ranging from telepathy to x-ray vision, he finds this so-called blessing to be nothing but a curse. As all the inconveniences his powers cause constantly pile up, all Kusuo aims for is an ordinary, hassle-free life—a life where ignorance is bliss.

Unfortunately, the life of a psychic is far from quiet. Though Kusuo tries to stay out of the spotlight by keeping his powers a secret from his classmates, he ends up inadvertently attracting the attention of many odd characters, such as the empty-headed Riki Nendou and the delusional Shun Kaidou. Forced to deal with the craziness of the people around him, Kusuo comes to learn that the ordinary life he has been striving for is a lot more difficult to achieve than expected.

Review

This is one of the best short anime’s that I’ve ever seen. The comedy is so good and the use of jokes is excellent. None of the characters are very fleshed out but seeing them though our main characters perspective where he can read minds is great since we get to see each of their perspectives.

There are enough characters and the show goes on for long enough that you get to know all of them really well. It has 120 episodes in season 1 and there is also a season two which also goes on for long enough. If you like comedy’s or short anime you can’t go wrong with this.
