There's no need to watch this.  It does pretty much everything poorly, and offers nothing that the 2016 version doesn't, if anything at all.

It has a joke or two, that, in concept, are funny.  2016 proves this.  But there are three things that hold it back, execution-wise, from being entertaining.

1) The artwork and animation have me wanting to wash my eyes out.

2) Everything moves too slowly.

3) There are only a few jokes, most of which are the least interesting, and which are stretched out to over 10 minutes.

I'll be perfectly honest: the only reason I'm reviewing this is to be the first one.  I have basically zero interest in actually discussing this piece of garbage.

It is one of my favorite animes. It starts out by not having a direct plot, but as time goes on you can see a strong story of friendship. It has an excellent dry humor and is overall very fun. Saiki is one of my favorite characters of all time.

I love this anime so much, especially Saiki. He's like my spiritual animal.
