15th issue of Shonen Jump to reveal new ending theme artist on March 12

This year's 14th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced on Monday that four-member rock band Shiggy Jr. will perform the new opening theme song "Oteage Psychics" (Psychics Who Have Given Up Hope) for the second anime season based on Shūichi Asō's The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. (Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan) manga. The single for the song will ship on May 23. Shiggy Jr. has previously performed theme songs for RIN-NE 2 and Rilu Rilu Fairilu ~Yōsei no Door~.

The 15th issue next Monday will reveal the new ending theme song artist.

The anime premiered on January 16. The series is listed with 24 episodes.

Hiroaki Sakurai (Di Gi Charat, Maid Sama!) is returning to direct the anime at EGG FIRM and J.C. Staff. Masayuki Onji (Kimi to Boku., Aoi Hana) is also returning as the character designer. Hiroshi Kamiya, Daisuke Ono, and Nobunaga Shimazaki are performing the current opening theme song "Silent Prisoner" as their characters alongside the Psychic Lover music group that also composes the music for the series. Dempagumi.inc are performing the current ending theme song "Sai Hakkenden" for the anime.

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 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 last October. The film earned 194 million yen (about US$1.7 million) to rank at #2 during its opening weekend.

Asō ended his original Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan manga on February 26, but launched a four-panel sequel for the manga on Monday.

Update: The staff also revealed on Monday that the new opening theme song will debut in the anime on April 10.
