News: Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan manga confirmed for anime adaptation

Shuichi Aso’s supernatural comedy manga Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan, in which high-school kid Kasuo Saiki is beset by catastrophes caused by his powers, is getting its own anime as Shonen Jump announced in Monday’s issue. Starting in July as a “double broadcast”, it will air in the morning on TV Tokyo’s Oha-Suta (Good Morning Star) programme, and at night again on TV Tokyo, as well as other channels.

The stars of the anime include:

Hiroshi Kamiya (Fate/stay night‘s Shinji and Noragami‘s Yato) as Kasuo Saiki
Mitsuo Iwata (Akira movie’s Shotaro Kaneda) as Kuniharu Saiki
Rikako Aikawa (Pururun! Shizuku-chan‘s Hababi-kun) as Kurumi Saiki
Nobunaga Shimazaki (Free!‘s Haruka Nanase) as Shun Kaido
Daisuke Ono (Black Butler‘s Sebastian) as Riki Nendo

Hiroaki Sakurai of Maid Sama! will be directing, with Shirobako‘s Michiko Yokote on series composition and Masayuki Onji of Aoi Hana designing characters. EGG Firm and J.C.Staff animate the show, based on the manga which first launched as a Jump series in 2012, after Aso had been drawing one-shots for the Jump and Jump Next! magazines since 2011.

Besides inspiring three voice comics, two novels, and a mini-game for the Jump Live app, the series was previously adapted as a Flash anime series in 2013. A live-action film was also announced last year, but is yet to be released.
