Hey guys, welcome back to Kaizetsu.com. Today we are going to provide you the list of Anime which are very similar to anime named Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.).
Short introduction to Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.)
To the average person, psychic abilities might seem a blessing; for Kusuo Saiki, however, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Gifted with a wide assortment of supernatural abilities ranging from telepathy to x-ray vision, he finds this so-called blessing to be nothing but a curse. As all the inconveniences his powers cause constantly pile up, all Kusuo aims for is an ordinary, hassle-free life—a life where ignorance is bliss. Unfortunately, the life of a psychic is far from quiet. Though Kusuo tries to stay out of the spotlight by keeping his powers a secret from his classmates, he ends up inadvertently attracting the attention of many odd characters, such as the empty-headed Riki Nendou and the delusional Shun Kaidou. Forced to deal with the craziness of the people around him, Kusuo comes to learn that the ordinary life he has been striving for is a lot more difficult to achieve than expected.
Description: Nitta Yoshifumi, a young, intellectual yakuza, lived surrounded by his beloved pots in his turf in Ashikawa. But one day, a girl, Hina, arrives in a strange object, and uses her telekinetic powers to force Nitta to allow her to live with him, putting an end to his leisurely lifestyle. Hina tends to lose control of herself, wreaking havoc both at school and in Nitta’s organization. Though troubled, he finds himself taking care of her. What will become of this strange arrangement? It’s the beginning of the dangerous and lively story of a nice-guy outlaw and psychokinetic girl!
Number of Episodes: 12
Release Year: 2018
Both anime are pure comedy shows that revolve around a powerful psychic living their daily life. No one knows about their powers with the exception of their family and the few other espers that are far weaker than the main character. Though the thing that really makes both of these shows similar is how the unique and funny set of characters interact with each other and the protagonist. They just stick to the main character like a flock of birds and shenanigans ensues. The only real difference I could find between the shows is that Saiki is intelligent and tries to hide his powers while Hina is dumb and does so naturally. Both shows are extremely funny too and their comedy style is really similar, so if you liked one of them then you’ll definitely like the other
9. SKET Dance
Description: At the Kaimei Academy three classmates, “Bossun” Yusuke, “Onihime” Himeko and “Switch” Kazuyoshi have established their own club: the Academy Activity Support Club.

Whether identifying a graffiti artist, fixing the school gym shed or helping a new student fend off his childhood bullies, no task is too big and no job too small for the Sket-Dan.
Number of Episodes: 77
Release Year: 2011 – 2012
Both are crazy school comedy with crazy cast of characters and crazy situations.

And as Oga is as mean as they come, Beelzebub latches on to its newfound ‘father’, much to the other demons’ dismay. Now, in addition to battling rival gangs and becoming the strongest delinquent around, Oga must buy diapers, comfort and carry around an annoying baby who’s more of a devil than he is!

Both comedy anime that have so many similarites. Both mostly take places in school. Both main characters are overpowered. Both main character’s parents look kinda similar (especially their father). Both have some delinquents and stupid characters (like Toujou and Nendou). Nendou’s family have the same face like him. In Beelzebub, there’s an episode where the people of the town have the same face like Shiroyama. “Queen” Kunieda and “Princess” Teruhashi always imagining romantic scenes between them and the main characters that will never happen.
7. Nichijou – My Ordinary Life

Meanwhile android Nano spends her days wishing she were a normal human, but keeping house for her creator, the playful and immature child genius Hakase, dealing with talking cat Sakamoto, and trying to keep a hold of her multitude of easily-detachable body parts, her dream is far from a reality…

Both are hilarious, but Nichijou focused more on dialogue than narration. Both have multiple short stories composed in an episode. Both have great characters that can work together in a comedic setting.

Unfortunately for Sei, who has a unique talent for misreading situations, his extreme anxiety has convinced him that everyone in school hates him! The more people fawn over him, the more he is convinced that he is being bullied. The members of the Handa Force are equally clueless, misreading every word and action from Sei as something grand or heroic and completely unaware that their daily attempts to guard him from the school’s various weirdos make Sei think that they are dangerous stalkers. Will anyone ever figure out what’s really going on here, or will this cycle of craziness continue until graduation?
Number of Episodes: 12
Release Year: 2016
Both series follow a rather comedic and unique cast of characters in the daily high-school lives. Though they have different premises. One deals with a main character, Handa, who is completely oblivious to the fact that the whole school loves him. The other is about a character, Saiki Kusuo, who tries to avoid the limelight and hide his psychic powers. Additionally, both series have great dub and sub voice acting. If you liked Saiki Kusuo, you will definitely like Hanada-kun.

These are both light hearted comedic shows with similar senses of humour, neither show takes itself too seriously. Both main characters are ridiculously over-powered, and decide to focus on the downsides of having such power.

Gintoki’s profession of choice is that of a yorozuya: he’ll complete any job for money. However, he’s unmotivated; and spending most of the day on the couch with the latest issue of Jump and a carton of Strawberry Milk is his preferred pastime. It turns out that his new unpaid employees, Shinpachi and Kagura, are going to interfere with his pastime even more than with his “work”! Of course, none of this means he has really given up on his samurai ideologies!
Number of Episodes: 367 + Movies and OVAs
Release Year: 2006 – 2021
Both main characters, Gintoki and Saiki, love eating sweets and reading Shounen manga. They’re also strong (though Saiki’s power is incomparable). Both shows have great comedy. Both referenced each other at some point.
1. Mob Psycho 100
Description: Kageyama Shigeo, a.k.a. “Mob,” is a boy who has trouble expressing himself, but who happens to be a powerful esper. Mob is determined to live a normal life and keeps his ESP suppressed, but when his emotions surge to a level of 100%, something terrible happens to him! As he’s surrounded by false espers, evil spirits, and mysterious organizations, what will Mob think? What choices will he make?
Number of Episodes: 25
Release Year: 2016 – 2019
The protagonists of these series have overpowered psychic abilities, so much that no one stand a chance against them. They actually have to restrain themselves so that no one else gets hurt. A big difference is that, in case of Mob Psycho, Shigeo is portrayed as a character who is as simple as he can be, so everyone at first glance won’t pay any attention to him. On the other hand, Saiki from Saiki Kusuo tries his best to avoid any type of attention, and realizes no matter what he does he is going to be at the center of every little and big events around him. These series have some over the top comedic elements, and they were used in the best possible way.
