Train DiPSIster is the 165th chapter of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. (Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan) manga series published on the 28th of September 2015.
Kusuo, not wanting to teleport, goes by train to a coffee jelly shop that is 30 minutes away. Disasters strike while on the train.
At Hidari Wakibara’s train station, Kusuo boards a train. He explains it has been a while since he took a train and will need to travel for half an hour. While he can easily teleport to the place, he does not want to use his abilities for his own interest, especially where he is heading. He is going to a coffee jelly shop and has heard several reviews from people’s minds about the shop’s coffee jelly. He wants to make an effort to go and make it more satisfying, however he will go back home afterwards by teleporting.
Riding a train is more troublesome for Kusuo than everyone else. He explains how the person sitting in front of him has his music too loud, normally it would be annoying for anyone but for him he hears this music and everyone’s thoughts on how annoying it is. He decides to unplug the guy’s headphones with telekinesis, saying there is no point in wearing them. The guy gets highly embarrassed, the train arrives at the next stop and the guy runs away. People chatter about what is wrong with him and laugh at the song lyrics. Kusuo does not mind and states he should have worn closed headphones if he is going to hear embarrassing music.
Kusuo then sees an open seat, about to go sit but then stops himself. An old tired woman approaches and Kusuo lets her sit in the seat instead. The woman thanks him and is about to sit down but a middle school student sits down beforehand. Kusuo and the woman are highly annoyed at him. Kusuo states how rude he is and the guy starts to fall asleep at the seat, thinking he will just take a nap until he reaches his stop. The older woman angrily stares at him and Kusuo wonders how the guy is sleeping through that. A different woman saw the exchange and offers the older woman her seat. Kusuo is happy and relieved, however the older woman politely declines and continues angrily staring at the boy. They are close to the next stop and Kusuo decides to trick the guy that it is his stop. The guy wakes up, gets off the train and wonders where he is. Kusuo waves him off. The guy realizes he is not at his stop and Kusuo states he has to wait for the next train. Kusuo is relieved that the old woman can sit in the seat now, realizes she is gone, looks at the window and is surprised that it was her stop. He realizes there was no reason to get the guy out and shrugs.
After a while on the train, it got too crowded. Kusuo realizes this is what workers have to go through every day. He has to go through with his telepathy and the sweat of the guy behind him, making him a bit anxious. He will try to go through since it is only a few more stops and gets excited on the toppings he will put on the coffee jelly. They arrive at the next stop and Kusuo initially thinks that the crowd will slightly ease some space. The doors open to a group of sumo wrestlers, they enter and make it much worse. Kusuo is in shock, everyone is too squished and he is forced into a pose to fit. He then hears someone say that someone touched them and laughter. A man is groping women, taking advantage of the situation, and Kusuo decides to stop him. The man decides to wait for another opening, he gets one when the train makes a turn and unknowingly grabs a private area of one of the sumo wrestlers. The other sumo wrestlers circle around him, he runs out and screams once the train gets to another stop. The sumo wrestlers run after him and beat him up at the platform.
Kusuo sighs, glad that the wrestlers got off. The train is no longer crowded and Kusuo finally gets to sit down. He gets relieved since he has one more station to go to reach his destination and closes his eyes. The intercom announces the train will stop. Kusuo opens his eyes, surprised, only to find the train is still moving. He is relieved, believing it was all a dream, but realizes it was his precognition. A man is near the train tracks, having a rough life, and decides to step into the train tracks with the incoming train coming. Kusuo appears, gets him off the tracks before the train arrives and says he does not care if he wants to die. The man is confused as to what happened, Kusuo throws money to him, and the guy discovers the money he lost. Kusuo, hiding and finishing his sentence, says he should not get in the way of someone else’s hard work. The man is happy since now his company can do a contract and Kusuo quips that it would be a shame if he died beforehand.
Kusuo walks away and sees the train has left. He excuses himself since he ended up saving a life and decides to give up. He decides to teleport to the coffee jelly shop after all.
