AsPSImble! The Ultimate Spot Reservists is the 189th chapter of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. (Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan) manga series published on the 28th of March 2016.
Kusuo, Shun, Riki and Aren go to the park, trying to have a flower viewing party, but can not due to there being no spots to sit.
At 6 in the morning, Kusuo is at the front door of his home and questions why they came so early. He asks them what they want from him. Outside are Shun, Riki and Aren asking him as to why he was asleep and he needs to get ready to go out with them. Kusuo has no idea what they are talking about and has already decided not to go. They question him if he already knows where they are going and give him obvious hints. He figures out that they will go flower viewing, which they soon announce it afterwards.
Walking to the park, Shun, Riki and Aren are highly gleeful. They tell Kusuo to pick up his pace. Kusu explains that the three were too persistent, reluctantly agreeing to go with them, but is confused on why they are so excited. Aren tells him he should get excited to go flower viewing too. Kusuo believes that people only get excited for these viewings due to being able to drink sake. He also thinks that it is weird to be this excited too early in the morning. They continue to walk and one of them worries that they will not be able to find a spot. Shun reminds them that they all met up at 4 in the morning for this exact reason. Kusuo is surprised that they met up 2 hours prior to getting him. Shun further explains that they took too long buying some items, but it is still early so he believes no one will be there yet.
They arrive by the park’s entrance, and are joyful at seeing the cherry blossom trees. They decide to run into the park and figure they will look for the best spot. Once entering, they see that the park is crowded making Shun and Aren go into shock. They question as to why there are so many people in the park at 6 in the morning and if they had anything else to do. Kusuo thinks on how they are one to talk.
They decide to look for an empty spot, only for a person to laugh at them for their unlucky predicament. He informs them that there are several reservers in the park. Shun asks him at what time he arrived at the park. He replies he arrived at 5 in the morning, only for him to yell that he only arrived an hour earlier. The man corrects him that he arrived yesterday at 5 in the morning. Shun is in shock, Kusuo says that their earlier comment of people not having anything else to do is actually correct. The man continues, saying that they should not be surprised since there are more reservers, some having stayed here a week or longer. He finishes by pointing out a man and says that he has waited longer than a year. Kusuo points out that the man is actually homeless. Shun, Riki and Aren are still certain that there is one spot left and split up to find one.
The man laughs at them again, and tells more stories of other fellow reservers. He points at a man called Fujiwara, and says he is nicknamed “Bookstop” and has a big stack of books around him. Then he points to a man doing sit-ups and says he is called “Muscle Creator” Andou. Finally he points at a stuffed bear and says that it is “Stuffed Animal Leaver” Kishida. The man advises them to give up looking for a spot and look at dandelions at home. The guys look devastated and Kusuo folds his arm thinking they are out of luck and should listen to him.
Riki points out that there is an empty spot and they are happily surprised. The man warns them to not sit there. They do not listen to him, and start preparing the spot. Riki asks them what is up with the man and they respond to him that he is jealous that they found a better spot. A man appears, telling them that he had already claimed the spot and to leave. They are confused and tell him that there is nothing on the spot. He tells them to look carefully and points at a small rock that has his name, Matsumura, on it. They think about how someone would know about that and tell him it is unjust and they will ignore him. The man decides to take a dump in the spot and they immediately tell him to stop, they will leave. The man from earlier tells them that the guy is “Marking Matsumura” and he goes all out to keep his spot. They start to wonder on what to do and they just decide to look for any spot.
After a while they have a spot set up and believe they can see the blossoms from there. Shun tells them that they should toast while holding a can of soda. They are however silent and the cherry trees barely be seen. Shun asks them as to why they are upset. They explain that it is expected, they can not see the cherry trees, especially when sitting down. Shun tells them that they should not talk about cherry blossoms and make this a picnic instead. They decide to do so to change the mood and Riki brings out the stuff he bought. They are happy on the snacks and dessert they all have. One of them sets up cherry blossom mochi and they get upset once again. In denial, they think eating outside is fun and the temperature is great. They talk about how it is springtime and Riki says how bad his allergies get. They think about how he is right since there is pollen with flowers blooming and end up thinking of the cherry blossoms again.
They start hearing music and someone singing. They find a group doing karaoke, having fun and realize it is “Bookstop.” They talk about the song, saying they have not heard it from a while, and realize sadly that the song’s title is “Cherry Blossoms.” Kusuo starts thinking that they should stop. They then get happy when the song changes but realize that the singer has a name meaning cherry blossoms. Shun gets angry and throws a bag of potato chips. Shun tells Riki that he should take a dump in the middle of the park, surprising Riki. Kusuo thinks that he is being unreasonable.
Shun yells out complaints of not being able to see the cherry trees, and a girl overhears him. Shun starts to talk about a plan, only to be interrupted. It is Kokomi, who mentions she recognized his voice and headed towards his direction. She asks him what he is doing, and immediately Aren, Riki and Shun are in glee seeing her. One of them says ‘offu’ to her and they explain that they are flower viewing. She is confused and tells them there are no cherry trees in the area they are in. Kusuo, behind them and looking in the opposite direction, starts to feel like things will get more annoying. The boys explain to Kokomi that the area with the trees is full and thus they are sat there. Kokomi reasons with them that perhaps some people have left and asks if anyone wants to join her to go and check.
Back in the cherry tree area, “Muscle Creator” talks to other bodybuilders. He speaks of how wonderful the cherry trees are but sees that they are staring at something else. He gets angry, reminding them that he has been waiting over a month for this day. He immediately goes into shock when he sees Kokomi. Kokomi admits that they were right, the area is still full. Aren mentions there are spot reservers and she questions it. Right when they are about to explain them, a person interrupts them. It is “Muscle Creator” who tells Kokomi he is willing to give up his spot just for her. Aren and Shun are in shock. They ask them if they are okay with taking the spot, and the bodybuilders reason they are doing part of their workout by standing. She thanks them but admits the spot is too small for their group of five.
Kokomi sees an open spot and points out that they can sit there. They say they can not sit there since that is the “Marking Matsumura" spot. Matsumura gladly hands her the spots, making them go in shock again. They set the spot and sit down. Kokomi is happy and tells them that they are lucky to get the spot. Shun and Aren are still in shock. They think about how the cherry blossoms are blooming but all the spot reservers are not looking at them. They are all surrounded by the reservers, mostly staring at Kokomi, and can not see the blossoms once again. She tells them that they should all have a toast.
