The PSInnacle of the Golden Age of Heroes! A Fun Party Game is the 95th chapter of The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. (Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan) manga series released on the 14th of April 2014.
Riki, Shun, and Aren visit Kusuo's house and the four of them play a new fighting game together.
It is March 19th, the day J-Stars Victory Vs releases. Kusuo explains that while usually he does not care about new or popular games, he decided to get the game. The reader may think he was forced to say this, but he says it is his own opinion. He goes on to say that he has worn his germanium ring since yesterday so he would avoid any spoilers but the delivery is taking quite a while. He starts to wish he bought it at a store instead of online until he hears the doorbell. He opens the door, gets excited, only to find Shun, Riki and Aren outside.
Kusuo gets surprised and annoyed, but does not blame them since he had the ring on. They let themselves in, excusing themselves for the sudden visit. Kusuo says they should be sorry and gets surprised at the doorbell ringing again. He receives a box, getting quite happy, and Riki asks if he got a package. He opens the box, assuming it is the game, only to find it is a different one entirely. He is unamazed and wonders what it is.
Kuniharu comes to explain it is “C-Heroes Vale Tudo Battle” and asks Kusuo if he had ever heard of it. Kusuo, with the other guys behind, tells him no. Kuniharu reminds him of the manga magazine he is working in and since it will be 2 years since the launch, they decided to make a game with all the manga series characters. Kusuo tells him it is daring to do it at the 2nd anniversary, he has not heard of any of the manga series and it is basically a J-Stars knockoff. Kuniharu questions Kusuo about the game, Kusuo tells him to not play dumb since the logo looks exactly the same. He tells him to try the game since it has not been released yet and it is a test version. Kusuo tells him he will not but is cut off by the other 3 asking if they can. They get a hold of the game and are excited. Kusuo questions if they really knew about it. Shun questions Kuniharu if he actually works for the magazine, and he tells them he does. Shun and Aren get excited and say they are readers and Kuniharu tells them thank you. Kusuo is surprised they actually knew about it. They decide to play the game and Kusuo says he prefers for them to go home.
In Kusuo’s room, they tell him they are surprised that their dad works with the magazine. Kusuo explains they barge into his room and he wants them to leave so he can play J-Stars in peace. He then sees he got a new email on his computer about his order. It explains his delivery has been delayed and he asks how this could have happened. Shun asks him if they could play C-Heroes and Kusuo allows them. Shun puts the disk into the game system, they see the intro and get excited. They compliment the characters and it looks great, Kusuo is annoyed at how they do not shut up. While he is annoyed at them for coming in uninvited and sitting down, he is more annoyed at Aren for standing and refusing to sit down. Shun explains the game is a 2v2 fighting game and since they have 4 people it would be easy to split teams. Riki tells Kusuo they should partner up, Kusuo says he will not play, Shun says he would be with Aren and he agrees. The three pose as if they were in a fighting game, Kusuo excludes himself, saying he will not do that. They start to select the characters they will play with. Shun decides to pick Suvorov, from Odd-Eye Persona Cerberus and Kusuo questions if the character and series was in Jump. Shun and Aren talk about the series, with Shun explaining he started getting the magazine when the series transferred to it from Jump. Aren says he reads the series but his favorite series in the magazine is All Around Ushizawa and picks the titular character of that series. They continue to talk about the magazine, Kusuo says he has no idea what they are talking about. They ask Riki what character he will choose. He looks at the list and says he would pick Luffy. The two get angry at him, saying his actual name, his series, his hat is different (repeatingly) and that he is a different person. Shun finishes it off by telling him that Luffy is from Jump and if he does not know the magazine they are talking about. Riki yells at them if they are making fun of him and he knows about food, Kusuo says he is thinking that they are talking about a sort of jelly. He somewhat finds out what they are talking about and asks what it is, they are surprised that he does not know. Shun basically explains it is superior to Jump and why. Kusuo is annoyed, Shun asks what character he is picking and he grabs the controller to choose a character called Santarou. So now the battle is between what manga magazine is better, with Aren thinking that he also thinks Jump is better.
The battle starts and Kusuo questions if the game is not centered properly. Shun decides to attack first and fight Kusuo’s character, Kusuo blocks his attacks. Shun yells that the troupes of Jump are old school, and the new troupes are better. Riki asks what he said, wants to attack him, but he can not leave since his opponent is Aren. Shun continues to attack Kusuo, he has enough and believes it is time, so he goes to fight his character. Kusuo explains he knows Shun’s openings by all the times he was hitting him. He keeps on hitting Shun but then is attacked from behind by Aren’s characters. Shun questions what happened with Riki’s character but he then sees he has defeated him in under 30 seconds. Aren explains he used to ditch classes and go to arcades in middle school, so he is pretty good at games. Kusuo is surprised, especially since Aren is still standing up.
They continue the fight and decide to finish him. Kusuo explains he still has the ring on but decides it is a good handicap for them. They are annoyed at him for being able to block their attacks easily. Shun is annoyed but Aren explains there is light since Kusuo has to take a break from blocking since stamina is used when doing so. Kusuo sees the two together have no openings to attack and decides to back up to get stamina. Aren sees this and comes from behind him once more, surprising him. Aren and Shun decide to do an attack to finish him and are certain it is game over for him. Kusuo removes his ring, overpowers them, and wins by knockout. The two are highly surprised that they lost and Aren jokes that it was like he read their minds on what they were going to do. Kusuo says they should try again in 10 years and hears the doorbell once again. He goes downstairs and comes back up to say J-Stars finally arrived. Shun and Aren perk up, ask if it is the game and are surprised that he bought it. They decide to play it instead. Kusuo questions about the other game, they ignore him and say Jump is way better.
- Odd-Eye Persona Cerberus was first mentioned by Shun in Chapter 32. It was introduced as a not so popular series in Weekly Shōnen Jump, and with this chapter it appears that it is now a Weekly Shounen Cognac series.
