What You Need to Know:
- In an unxpected turn of events, Netflix has announced that the hit comedy anime Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.) will be getting an original anime! It is unexpected because the special that came out last year adapted all that was left of the source material and the manga itself has ended.
- The announcement came at a stage where Hiroshi Kamiya and Ai Kayano were present. From the tweet, it has also been confirmed that the director of the first two season, Hiroaki Sakurai will be returning to direct this new work. In addition, EGG FIRM & J.C. STAFF will also be returning to animate. At this point, it is not clear as to whether or not this will be a one-off ONA or an anime season.
- Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan has received two full anime seasons in 2016 and 2018 followed by what was supposed to be the conclusion of the series in December 2018. The series also received a live action movie, and multiple video games.
This is great! If Netflix does it, then that means that the anime must be popular overseas!
That's for sure! Now for more details!
