Talent PSIprouts!? The Melancholy of a Famous Magician is the 117th chapter of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. (Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan) manga series released on the 29th of September 2014.
Kusuo is invited by Uryoku to one of his shows, to find he has changed from magic to comedy. After seeing Kusuo use his "magic," however, he decides to pursue magic again.
Uryoku is shuffling cards and Kazuya comes in asking him that it is great to practice but it is almost time for the performance. Uryoku tells him it is just out of habit, it is important to practice tricks just so they don't go dull. They go on about how they have grown, and that they will not use doves in today's performance. They go off to perform.
Kuniharu goes up to Kusuo, saying Uryoku's catchphrase, and Kusuo thought his father hit his head, ready to heal him. Kuniharu corrects him that it is from an act on TV, Kusuo did not know nor care for it. Kuniharu then shows Kusuo an advertisement showing Uryoku and Kazuya, Kusuo surprised that they have gotten better since the last time he has seen them. Kurumi comes out and states that she knows about them and so do Kumi and Kumagoro, who are still in the house visiting them. Kurumi then gives Kusuo a letter from Uryoku, Kuniharu stops stating the catchphrase after hearing that, most likely surprised that Kusuo knows him.
Uryoku's letter asks him to come visit him when he has a show in his area and that he is sure that he has grown. Kusuo goes to the show and Uryoku is quite happy to see him. Kusuo goes to his apparent "good" seat and the show starts. At first, Kusuo believed that this was a magic show but kept seeing the audience so happy than usual. He later on realizes that it is not a magic show, it is something completely different. Uryoku and Kusuo see each other in the end of the show, and that is when Uryoku tells him that himself and Kazuya are now doing more of a comedy show, doing mistakes on purpose. Kusuo now figures it out and hopes the best for them.
He leaves them and goes on that they're worried about unnecessary things. He then accidentally eavesdrops two men talking, one of them is displeased on having to be the opening act for Uryoku. He sees Kusuo hearing into their conversation and Kusuo was walking away. The performer asked who is Kusuo, his fellow performer told him that Kusuo was a guest of Uryoku's and is his apparent master. He is surprised that someone so young can be his master. He calls Kusuo asking how is it that he is Uryoku's master, only to be ignored when wanting to see the ball trick. He throws the ball to Kusuo, only for Kusuo to stop it with telekinesis. The men are in shock that the ball is floating. Kusuo then cuts their clothes, seeing as they wanted to see magic, only for Uryoku and Kazuya to see the ordeal.
Kusuo states that it was a bit childish of him to do that, only for Uryoku and Kazuya to run towards him. They were both moved by seeing Kusuo doing the tricks on the performers, that they want to continue to try to be good magicians, like him. They ask him to still guide them. Kusuo states that they are better in comedy, but changes his mind as they might fail to make people laugh anyways. Uryoku goes on about it is been awhile since he has seen Kusuo's magic but it is always amazing to watch.
