Buckle in, folks, because this disaster hasn’t even gotten started yet!
The official The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. anime website updated with a new visual for the show’s upcoming second season. The image features lead character Saiki Kuoso and newcomer Tōma Akechi, with a caption that reads “That’s a terribly nefarious face, but… who is it?”
The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. returns to Japanese TV in January. Characters Hiroshi Satō, Tōma Akechi, and Mikoto Aiura will all appear in the new season. Much of the first season’s cast will return to reprise their roles.
The first season of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K., which is based on Shūichi Asō’s manga of the same name, was directed by Hiroaki Sakurai (Cromartie High School, Maid Sama!) at studios Egg Firm and J.C. Staff. Masayuki Onji (Aria the Avvenire, Cromartie High School) provided character designs for the project, while Michiko Yokote (Genshiken, Prison School) is took charge of series composition.
Funimation currently holds the rights to the The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. anime. They describe 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.
