Saito-kun wa Chounouryokusha Rashii

Saitou, a rather arrogant kid, announces his super power to his class on the first day of high school. He imagines that it will make all the girls swoon, and he'll be crazily popular. Unfortunately, his ability to bend a spoon looks more like a cheap trick than a super power, and everyone laughs in his face.

Soon he learns that he is not the only kid with superpowers at the school, and there is even a Super Powers Research Club. He soon finds himself dragged into the society of a friendly invincible girl, a violent telekinetic girl, and a mind-reader. Rather than being swooned over, Saitou appears to have the least impressive ability of the group! Is there any way for him to get the happy high school life he was hoping for?

It's a pure comedy

I'd say this series did the incredibly stupid subgenres of "loser joins a club of incredibly hot but inexplicably unpopular girls" and "everyone in high school has a magical power" the best. The loser is in fact a huge loser and the author makes no attempt to mask that. There is no character development and it doesn't need any because its a comedy. If anything the author is poking fun at the superficial character growth of harem MCs by having his MC learn nothing. I wouldn't go so far to say it was a parody of said subgenres but everything was handled with a bit of self awareness. I really enjoy Imigi Muru's artwork and his ability to do physical comedy. The ending obviously was unplanned but that's fine because there was no real plot points that needed to be resolved.

The concept was interesting, but the ending came out of nowhere. This series looked like it could go on and on so whe I read the final chapter I just thought 'wait...that's it?'. Seriously, the ending is so rushed I thought it was just the end of the chapter and not the series. Just as it was gettnig good, it ended, just like that, without resolving anything, which is a shame.

The comedic content is pretty good. The lines are simple yet clever and delivered well. Characters are well rounded and pretty solid.artwork suits it well. Even the lame mc fits in nicely. Sad to see its over at 4 volumes,I wouldnt have minded reading this for a while.

Not as much fanservice as the cover implies and the MC is a moron but he isn't the wimpiest or the dumbest out there by far. He gets beaten for his stupidity quite often so you don't feel too annoyed by him. Looking forward to more.

I was really enjoying this series, even tho it's nothing spectacular or revolutionary, it's in my opinion quite funny. The art it's good so it makes it more enjoyable. Such a shame it got axed.

It was a story about a guy with a big ego founded on a very limited talent. He gets abut the amount of attention an ordinary guy would get from some girls who DO have special talents, which recurringly amazes him. In other words, it's a satire about blind egotism. The thing is, the guy is clueless in an interesting way; the girls have interesting talents and or either whacky or cute or both; and the events are unexpected and nutty.

I laughed out loud often while reading this. The creator of it obviously has talent for comedy. I don't understand why it just trailed off...

Welp ive been reading this for some time and now its over. All in all it was a funny series and thats that. I mean i know we have an eccentric dumb main character but i was constantly expecting him to gain more power and become i guess just relevant; especially from the category in this page that say "Seemingly Useless Power" but yea....
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
In the beginning the only power he has is to bend spoons and the whole time im thinking it would change into something great like being able to bend space or something; but yea i guess i gave this gag series too much credit. He just stayed with this lame ability and stayed being a lame male lead. All they did in the end was just create a quick random character that says he can time travel in the future. Well that sounds awesome but i wish we could see that during this series...
. This had funny situations but over all was disappointing story wise, if it even had that. It kinda went no where so i guess it was really just a gag manga

The art is nice, but the story is extremely hackneyed in the few chapters that have been translated. A few characters have yet to be fleshed out so there may be some surprises yet to be seen but I'm not holding my breath.

Lets get this out of the way first, the MC is worthless. The author obviously design him to be that way but it comes across to poorly it feels like hes just a badly written character.

That said, the side character are much better... when they get the spotlight. The story touches upon some of the more interesting aspects of "Espers in everyday life" such as how/why they would act the way they do and whether or not they would ever realize they are Espers in the first place. The problem is that the story keeps putting the focus back on the main character which is by far the most boring aspect.
