Anime to premiere in January

This year's 52nd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that M.A.O will voice the character Imu Rifuta in the second season of the television anime of Shūichi Asō's The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. manga. Imu falls in love with both Saiki and Kokomi, and cannot stop dreaming.

The new characters joining the second season include:

Yuuki Kaji as Tōma Akechi

Eri Kitamura as Mikoto Aiura

The second season will also add the character Hiroshi Satō.

The manga centers on a high school boy named Kusuo Saiki. He possesses supernatural powers that cause unfortunate events in his everyday life.

The first season premiered as a "double broadcast," airing in the mornings Mondays-Fridays within the Oha-Suta ("Good Morning Star") program on TV Tokyo, and at night on TV Tokyo, TV Aichi, and TV Osaka. The morning broadcast aired five episodes each week, and the late-night broadcast collected those five episodes and aired them together. The anime premiered in July 2016. Funimation streamed the series with English subtitles as it aired in Japan, and also streamed an English broadcast dub for the series.

The manga also inspired a live-action film that opened in Japan on October 21. The film earned 194 million yen (about US$1.7 million) to rank at #2 during its opening weekend.
