Kusuo Saiki’s childhood was a very fun time. After all, the boy did not know how special he was because of his abilities. As a child, Saiki liked to play hide and seek with his parents: he teleported, and the unfortunate mom and dad looked for him for hours. For the boy it was unlimited fun, which can not be said about parents.
With growing up, the guy realized that he should not just show his abilities to others. He shut up. The guy had no friends at all. That is why the main dream of Saiki was to become like everyone else, a simple person, to run and have fun with friends and not feel special. But this is not so.
Kusuo Saiki is a very reserved guy, he rarely uses his voice, preferring to convey his thoughts through telepathy. In ordinary life, he does not often use his abilities, preferring to live honestly. On the exam, the student does not use his abilities – his assessment is the one that he really deserves; he saves money in order to buy something without using his strength, etc.
Despite loneliness, closeness from communication with peers, Kusuo Saiki still opens his heart, making friends. Now, feeling the responsibility for them and the need to communicate with them, a gifted teenager is able to change his life for the better. He is not alone; there are friends around him who accept him for who he is. After all, they do not yet know his secrets…
