Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan, also known as Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan and The Disastrous Life of Saiki K., (斉木楠雄のΨ難 Saiki Kusuo no Sainan) is a Japanese gag manga series created by Asou Shuuichi.


Born with innate supernatural power, Kusuo Saiki seems to have his life easy. He possess various psychic abilities, including telepathy and psychokinesis among others, allowing him to get anything he wants. During kindergarten, he unintentionally caught the attention of the local media after rumors of his Rock paper scissors matches against his classmates and teacher spread around town. Since the incident, Kusuo has been particularly careful with using his powers in public, but coming into his sophomore year of high school, with all hi-jinks that ensued, Kusuo began to relax on this habit.


Kusuo Saiki, an otherwise normal teenager, has various super-powers, telepathy and telekinesis included. This should have been cool, but through experience, Kusuo comes to realize that having powers while trying to lead an ordinary life is a bad mix.
