The official website for the live-action film of Shūichi Asō's Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.) manga began streaming a trailer on Friday. In the video, Saiki introduces his powers and says they cause him problems as he would like to have a normal life. The trailer reveals that musical duo Yuzu is performing the theme song "Koi, Hajikemashita." (Love, Burst), and features a preview of the song.
The cast is as follows:
Kanna Hashimoto (live-action Assassination Classroom) as Kokomi Teruhashi
Hirofumi Arai (live-action Bakuman., Space Brothers) as Riki Nendō
Ryō Yoshizawa (live-action Gintama, Tomodachi Game) as Shun Kaidō
Hideyuki Kasahara (live-action GTO: The Movie, Boogiepop and Others) as Kineshi Hairo
Kento Kaku (live-action Ranma ½ special) as Aren Kuboyasu
Murotsuyoshi (HK/Hentai Kamen) as Uryoku Chōno
Jiro Sato (live-action Gintama film, Death Note series) as Pinsuke Kanda
Seiichi Tanabe (Kimi wa Pet, NANA 2) as Kusuo's father Kuniharu Saiki and Yuki Uchida (Kami no Shizuku, Doctor X) as Kusuo's mother Kurumi Saiki
The film will premiere in Japan on October 21. Yūichi Fukuda (live-action HK/Hentai Kamen, Mr. Nietzsche in the Convenience Store, Gintama) is directing the film.
The manga inspired an anime series that aired within the Oha-Suta ("Good Morning Star") program beginning last July. The anime aired five episodes each week inside that program, and then a late-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 21st compiled volume of the manga in Japan on April 4.
