Saiki Kusuo has a wide array of superpowers at his command, including telepathy and telekinesis. This might sound awesome, but, in Kusuo's experience, superpowers are not all they're cracked up to be. He tries to live a normal life, despite his annoying abilities.

Ah yes, I remember checking out the crossover between this series and Assassination Classroom. I also recall being interested in checking this out as well, so I suppose I'll get started on it soon. Heh, interesting to see all these recent series that have a quirky god-tier character as the MC (this, AC, Onepunch-Man, etc.).

Okay, I just finished reading all the translated chapters. Really a shame that the translations are so far behind the weekly releases, because this is a fun series! One particularly interesting thing I noticed about Kusuo is that he rarely (if ever) speaks out loud. Nope, everything's gotta be about monologue with him!



Anyways, I hope we get more translations of this soon. I'd love to see more of Kusuo's interactions with those "friends" of his (particularly the chuunibyou guy)!

Bumping since the translated chapter 7 is out now!



Geez, to think that a simple dodgeball game would turn out to be so complex for a guy like Kusuo.... BTW, this chapter's monologues actually reminded me of Hunter x Hunter a bit, lol.

Would anyone perhaps know why this hasn't been getting translated?

It's been a long while since the last time it was translated and it looks like it has a lot more volumes released.

Double post...

Gahahahaha!!

Translations have finally started up again! Apparently, the group, Dark Murmur, had a staff shortage and they're going to work on catching up with all of the volumes that have been released so far.

Oh joyous day!

And then we find out the dude was just messing with him to get his homework done. But at least Saiki got him back!

Bump for new chapter releases up to 17. I'll just give a summary for the latest translated chapter, though.

Saiki meets a new psychic, Toritsuka Reita, who can communicate with ghosts. The guy wants to become his disciple because of his powerful abilities, but Reita just reveals that he just wants the powers for getting girls and making money.

Saiki then disillusions him as to why having powers like his is not a good thing. These reasons have already been explained in the other chapters, so you can just look there.

There was more 4th wall breakage with Saiki using the Jump volume that the chapter was being showed in to explain clairvoyance.

In the end, Kusuo's clairvoyance shows him how seeing ghosts is a bad thing for Reita. Seriously, the face he made upon seeing what the ghost psychic sees in the most expressive (and horrified) that Saiki has been so far.

Having psychic powers isn't all it's cracked up to be...
