The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. is based on Shūichi Asō’s manga of the same name. Hiroaki Sakurai (Cromartie High School, Maid Sama!) is helming the series at studios Egg Firm and J.C. Staff, with Masayuki Onji (Aria the Avvenire, Cromartie High School) providing character designs. Michiko Yokote (Genshiken, Prison School) is in charge of series composition.
The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. began airing on July 4. Funimation describes the show as:
Saiki Kusuo is a typical 16-year-old high school student… except he has psychic powers. He can use them to get whatever he wants, but he also knows everything that people are thinking. Everything. No surprises, no secrets, no normal human experiences. He’s kept his powers in check since childhood, but with the temptations of high school now on his mind, he’s bending the rules—and spoons.
