Thank god!! For the first couple of episodes I was worried that this season of Saiki K wouldn’t be as good as the first. That’d it be a watered down season that for some reason lacked something vital that was present in the first season. But luckily that wasn’t the case. After the show started to get going, I got used to the characters again, I got used to the comedy again and everything felt great again.
However, what I have noticed is that the show relies on introducing new characters to keep the show fresh. We’re 12 episodes in and three new major characters have already been introduced. So far I don’t see anything wrong with this method and I don’t think I’ll ever get bored with it since with each new character introduced comes along multiple funny stories that can be told, so I don’t really care nor understand why some people find this approach to be lazy.
I’ve particularly enjoyed the addition of the two new female characters; mostly because they are competition for Teruhashi. But to be honest, I care more about the upcoming romantic compettition between Teruhashi and the new female psychic, because Saiki is finally going to have a harem. Hopefully we get another girl in the mix so we can see more of Teruhashi fighting off the compettition for Saiki.
