These 10 titles are anime like The Daily Life of the Immortal King in one way or another, as they shared several elements ranging from its story, plot, and the high school setting, and the OP MC hiding his power to keep a simple life cliche. Without further ado, let’s start the list as follows:
10 Anime Like The Daily Life of the Immortal King
Quanzhi Fashi | I’ll start this list with a Chinese anime that many of us might be quite familiar with. Full-Time Magister follows the story of Mo Fan, a high school student with exceptional talent, however, due to his poor family background, he was often insulted by his peers, he hides his true power and only uses it in times of needs, however, just like Wang Ling, Mo Fan is a real beast, an overwhelming entity once he unleashes his potential.
The Irregular at Magic High School
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei | Tatsuya Shiba had been one of the most OP anime character ever. His overwhelming strength is just enormous, he is a god in his universe if he truly unleashes his real power, however, such is not the case here. He only lives to fulfill his duty as a member of the Yotsuba Clan and to protect his sister Miyuki. IN their high school, he was often disregarded by his schoolmates, yet they don’t even know that the person standing in front of them is one of the most powerful characters in the world of The Irregular at Magic High School story.
Mob Psycho 100
He’s no ordinary boy but people often mislook or misjudge him due to his dumb appearance, srsly. Adapted from the manga written by the same team behind One Punch Man, you’ll understand just how overwhelming Mob Psycho 100 is as an anime. The story is engaging and the animation looks lit, a real quality I must say.
The King’s Avatar
Quan Zhi Gao Shou | Here’s another Chinese anime on our list and that is The King’s Avatar. He doesn’t have explosive powers that can kill people, or exorcise monsters, but Ye Xiu is the god in his forte. A legendary figure in the e-sports world, he was kicked out from his former team, but he still wishes to continue playing, thus, the journey to return to the professional scene began, and he started it by wreaking havoc in the in-game world of Glory as a nobody.
Classroom of the Elite
Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e | The real genius, the prodigy is always alone, whether they are surrounded by people or not, there’s a certain gap that can’t be easily conquered. Classroom of the Elite follows the story of Kiyotaka Ayanokouji as he started studying at Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing School, an institution prepared for genius students. He is quiet and low-key, he’ll get entangled with many students who think that they are superior to the other without even realizing that the quiet Ayanokouji is the real monster they had to be wary of. Unlike the other anime in this list that tends to be shounen at its core, Classroom of the Elite features an MC that manipulates people at his own will to do his bidding through a series of well-implemented schemes to outwit his opponents.
The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.
Saiki Kusuo no Ψ-nan | Next on the list is the anime that fans often compared with The Daily Life of the Immortal King as it should be, it’s The Disastrous Life of Saiki K. Just like Wang Ling, he just wants to have a normal and peaceful life, but him being a person gifted with esper powers like telekinesis and teleportation, he must find a way to hide this abnormality in various scenarios that he’ll come across at school.
Yingxiong Zai Lin | Here’s another Chinese anime like the Daily Life of the Immortal King, both are very similar in many elements. 5 years before the story started, the first-ever hero appeared and vanquished the evil, he then disappeared afterward. Now that just looks like how Wang Ling defeated the Toad monster but the credit goes to someone else, and it feels like he just disappeared from the picture. Now, 5 years later, Lin Jie, the first hero had returned and this is where the story follows his journey.
The Misfit of the Demon King Academy
Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha | Anos Voldigoad is the Demon King and when he was reborn in a peaceful era, everything had changed, albeit someone altered the history. Nobody even remembers his name, and while he enrolled in the Demon King Academy, he just acted like he normally does without realizing that his very presence is overwhelming enough to the new standard of the current era. Thus, his story as the overwhelming Demon Lord has begun anew.
Beyond the Boundary
Kyoukai no Kanata | He is enigmatic, he tries to act as normal as anyone else but Akihito Kanbara is an immortal, he is half-youmu. While he looks like an ordinary student on the surface, there is a devastating entity inside of him. Running through his blood is the legendary power of a destructive yoomu simply known as BEYOND THE BOUNDARY, hence the title of the series.
The Legend of the Legendary Heroes
Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu | This is an exciting adventure anime for fans of the shounen genre, there are fight scenes, humor, and a bit of romance. Furthermore, we had our typical MC who’s funny and hilarious but hides a dangerous power and curse beneath his easygoing personality.
