I binge-watched the first season of this series a few days ago and these are my thoughts.
The Disastrous Life of Saiki K is about a powerful psychic highschooler named Kusuo Saiki and his struggles to hide his abilities from his zany classmates that won’t leave him alone.
There isn’t really a main plot in this series, no plot development either. It’s all about Saiki, his interactions with people and situations he’s put in. All he wants to do is go on with his life and try to be normal but life makes this as hard as possible for him and that’s what makes this series interesting and funny.
While it dosent have much in the way of plot, The Disastrous Life Of Saiki K is hilarious due to the amount of sarcasm, deadpan humour and amazing fourth wall breaks that have me on the verge of breaking down in a fit of laughter.
From a critical standpoint, the animation in The Disastrous Life Of Saiki K isn’t what I would call amazing, but it works perfectly for this anime. It puts lots of emphasis on the funny parts which just adds to the comedy, topping it all off.
The characters are what make this anime what it is. They are pretty generic but for some reason, they work perfectly here. You learn little things about each of the characters every episode and by the end of the anime you feel like you know all of them.
The opening and ending were pretty average in my opinion, the ending was the better of the two. The music during the show was pretty much your usual background music for comedy series but I have no problem with that.
My final verdict on this anime is that its great! If you analyse all of the aspects, it seems like it would be a pretty average anime but it somehow works and turns out amazing.
If you like sarcastic humour then you will love this! I would reccomend this to anyone because even younger kids would enjoy this as it comes off as a bit of a kids show but the humour caters to teenagers and ages upward from there.
If you do want to watch this, there are 24 episodes or 120 mini episodes and you can watch it on Animelab and Netflix.
Thank you for reading and tell me if you liked this series as much as i did or if you plan to watch it.
