Main Cast Performs The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. 2nd Season Anime's Opening Theme

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
New season premieres on January 16

A stage presentation at the Jump Festa 2018 event on Sunday revealed that Hiroshi Kamiya, Daisuke Ono, and Nobunaga Shimazaki will perform the opening theme song "Silent Prisoner" for the second anime season based on Shūichi Asō's The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. manga. The three voice actors are performing the song as their characters alongside the Psychic Lover music group that also composes the music for the series.

The anime will premiere late at night on January 16 at 25:35 (effectively January 17 at 1:35 a.m.) on TV Tokyo, TV Hokkaido, and TV Osaka, and will air later that night on TV Aichi, TV Setouchi, and TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting.

The new characters joining the second season include:

Yuuki Kaji as Tōma Akechi

Eri Kitamura as Mikoto Aiura

M.A.O as Imu Rifuta

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.
