I always thought that Saiki could only hear the current thoughts of those around him, without any sort of visual component.
However, while rewatching with a friend, I noticed that in the final ep of Season 1, Saiki is able to visually look into Chiyo's mind, revealing the infamous throned Kaido and the dancing Nendos of temptation lol.
So presumably he can also look into someone's mental state at the moment, or is it just a glimpse at whatever they might be imagining?
Does anyone recall other moments where he does "mind-reading" beyond simply listening with telepathy?
It doesn't seem like he could do traditional dives into the subject's memory, or perceive anything other than what's on their mind at that very moment, but perhaps I'm missing something... 🤔

Originally wanted to post this with like... WAY more production value than a post-it sketch but I've gotten too perfectionist about it so I'm just gonna post my jazzed-up sketch for now! 💜 (Edit: scanned it lol)
Anyways, here's my design for 30-year-old Akechi Touma in my "On the fliⓟⓢⓘde of a meteor" fanfic series! 💛
(we're not anywhere near that yet but shhhh)
He's a full grown carnivore in his prime, at the very top of the food chain and no longer bothering to be discreet about it.
A late growth spurt has blessed him with enough height to loom effortlessly over most of the Japanese population, and he usually wears heeled or platformed shoes to get a little more height too.
There's not a single mystery he's encountered that he hasn't been able to solve, and he's been banned from every casino in Japan, plus several overseas. He's the best investigative journalist there's ever been!!
He performs gender aggressively, but no one can tell what the gender is supposed to be and it changes multiple times a day lmao. He'll tweak his presentation by changing the way he wears his hair and his trenchcoat, plus adding/removing accessories, to the point where people often mistake him for being multiple intimidating strangers instead of just one! Creating chaos is free enrichment baby!!!!
Pronouns? He's going to stare you down and make you guess. There's no right answer. Good luck.
Half the city is embroiled in heated debate on the topic, he's caused countless sexuality and gender crises, and he's fully aware and insufferably smug about this. 💛
My last minute contribution for #touma tuesday! For more funny and queer Blorbos, check out The Disastrous Life of Saiki K!
#touma tuesday#akechi touma#saiki k #saiki no psi nan #the disastrous life of saiki k. #sknpn #art by nopsi #carnivore posting#nopsi fic #also he's married but makes sure nobody has any fucking clue how many people he's married to or what gender they are #his coworkers froth at the mouth at any bit of new Touma lore and he's wildly amused by the whole thing #life is good...... #let's pretend i can draw face shapes that make sense and are consistent lmfao. too late at night to bother tracing. #we need more 'Akechi wearing a trench coat like it's a fur coat' content #he also folds it n wraps the arms around his waist so it looks like a half bustle as he runs around the city when it's hot lol #didn't have a decent sketch of that look tho
he sometimes breaks into his house to steal his sweets. now you can see why hes tempted
#i love how theres crossover stuff asou drew because it makes it that much funnier to think abt how saiki just minds his own buizness #goose doodles #i havent drawn korosensei in so long hi octopus guy #saiki’s in the anime with kaidou in the bg of the school festival arc i thiiink #^ not kaidou its kuroko basketball lol
I have too much stuff going on to make like a proper engineering drawing with orthogonal views etc etc but here's a scribble of how I think Saiki's limiters probably work.
Basically there's a hollow orthopedic-style locking screw on each side that guides the needle into the target area of the brain so that it's always striking the same spot when the limiters go in. Possibly with a little flap or smth on the entrance so no foreign material gets into Saiki's skull when the limiters are out. These would probably remain installed for life even if the limiters are removed.
Then the limiters themselves are counteracting the electrical signals of Saiki's brain, so the main body of it probably houses electronics that read Saiki's brainwaves and produce the appropriate disruptive signals. The ball might be an RF harvesting device – even if the needles sap electricity from Saiki's brain to power the electronics, the limiter is going to need more juice than that to scramble his brainwaves. And RF harvesting usually requires an antenna, so it would make sense for the balls to stick out from Saiki's head a bit in order to capture more energy.
The curved shape of the limiters and the magnets in the locking screws help guide them to the right spot on Saiki's head when someone else is popping them on. The screws on both sides also keep Saiki's brain in one place instead of floating around a bit in his skull, again to make sure that the needles hit right every time. This would also make the second installation useful and my hopeful headcanon is that the right limiter is actually an emergency replacement for the left one and Kusuke just hasn't said anything about it yet because he's an asshole and he wants Kusuo to have to seek his help sometimes.
yknow what heres the songs that are inspo for each arc of the httyd au fic (the whole thing is planned even if we're only 6 chapters in eheh)
not really spoilers if you dont think about it too long. the song names arent relevant to the plots of the arcs, just the song itself. tho see you tomorrow and flying with mother are the titles that actually fit; even if the latter isnt exact
See you Tomorrow
Flying with M(Br)other
Two New Alphas
Once There Were Dragons
had fun picking these out and they fit well, even if the names generally dont lol. i just vibe with most of these for the plot points
#httyd au#saiki k #<- otherwise most people wont know what the hell this au is for lol
