posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the the live-action film based on Shūichi Asō's Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.) manga revealed a teaser trailer, additional cast, and images of the cast in costume on Wednesday.
The cast, including the film's previously announced star Kento Yamazaki, is as follows:
Murotsuyoshi (HK/Hentai Kamen) as Uryoku Chōno
Jiro Sato (live-action Gintama film, Death Note series) as Pinsuke Kanda
The manga inspired an anime series that aired within the Oha-Suta ("Good Morning Star") program beginning in July. The anime aired five episodes each week inside that program, and then a light-night broadcast collected those five episodes and aired them together. An anime sequel has been green-lit.
Kusuo Saiki is a typical 16-year-old high school student… except he has psychic powers. He can use them to get whatever he wants, but he also knows everything that people are thinking. Everything. No surprises, no secrets, no normal human experiences. He's kept his powers in check since childhood, but with the temptations of high school now on his mind, he's bending the rules—and spoons.
Asō launched the manga series in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2012 after drawing one-shot versions of the story in Weekly Shonen Jump and Jump Next! magazines in 2011. Shueisha published the 20th compiled volume of the manga in Japan on December 31. The 21st volume will ship on April 4.
