The anime is  totally a meme. You can see a lot of references, and that are really funny. Really. This anime iş so similar to an anime named Saiki Kusuo. MC is really similar to Saiki. Wang loves noodle crisps like Saiki's coffee jelly love. Botu of them are overpowerred MCs in their world. And botu of them are trying to hide it and the story is about their insistion of trt-int to hide this power. 

For this anime;

Story: Well, evden though there isn't a big plot the story continues. Its a comedy donghua so dont wait a good plot but its still pretty interesting and funny. 

Animation: Animation is perfect. The fight senes, backgrounds, character designes.. I loves all of them.

Sound: Of you are an anime watcher Chinese dub may be a little irritating for you but if you had watched a fee donghua you will understand that the voice actors did a great job. Aş for the OP, I dont like slow songs very much but this one had a great vibe. ED was good too.

Characters: Well, I liked the MC so much. The Girl protagonist was a total tsundere highschool goddess that falls in love with the MC. So you decode to weather love her or not. The other schoolmates were the classic characters that you can find in evert anime like sport boy, bully, tsundere girl, the boy that comes nowhere and  clings onto MC, the others and emotionless overpowerred main character. 

About all this donghua had got such hilarious moments. Like asassin with plastic chicken, asassin creed references, dragon ball references, and there are lots of but couldnt remember it. 

Its an awesome comedy donghua I highly recommend it. (Oys still airing now.)

Honestly, this is a pretty good donghua. It's a comedy, kind of satirizing other shows of the same genre. It reminds of Mob Psycho in that an extremely overpowered character wants to hide how strong they are because they could destroy the world. 

However, where Mob Psycho succeeded is they know when to deliver on the promised action. This donghua kept raising the stakes, saying how strong our MC without ever giving us a good, long battle scene. I'm sorry, that finale doesn't cut it for me. While Mob Psycho S1 did pull the rug out from under us, they still delivered on kickass fighting scenes, letting us know that the MC is truly a force to be reckoned with. They didn't do that here.

On top of that, they never gave him a badass form. Mob has 100% form, which can look pretty intimidating. The MC in this show never really strayed from the humor, even when the show around him did. 

The two main characters are pretty good. The female main is a strong character that can fight on her own. She even has most of the fighting scenes. I would have liked to have seen more backstory, as there really wasn't any. However, almost none of the characters had back story so it wasn't based on her gender. I definitely felt that she fell in love with the MC too quickly though. He was also a pretty good character, although I wish he would have dropped the "I'm not strong schtick" at some point in the show. He only technically drops it in the last few episodes, and even then they don't equate that to him but to something else. I love that trope up to a point, but it definitely overstayed its welcome in this show to where it became annoying. 

Overall I thought it was a funny show however, you definitely have to watch it from the viewpoint that it's a comedy. Which is a little sad because they have the ability to make some amazing fight scenes. I do suggest watching it for the laughs, but if you want action move on to something else.

it's ok i guess? its fun and pretty, its not bad per se but not what makes me thriled.

I was expecting so much more action, and the main character dont do much for showing? if that make any sense. Its the point obviously, him not wanting do draw attention, but seriously he is the baddass, the fckn immortal king, i live for characters gaining recognition, and he don't want it and for me he don't take it seriously, so its kinda not my cup of tea

This's a well developed "OP" anime, protagonist Ling Wang is overpowered character but don't think he is a immortal just based on the title, immortal is comman term in titles in Chinese literature like xianxia, ling wang is OP but he can't fully control it if he lose his sense the whole world is doomed in instand so he always seal his power inside but when he enter the highschool..., the whole story is about he survival in highschool and this story contain lot of good plots and twist and few time screenplay slowdown the story flow but good characters development compensate it so don't worry besides this, animation is the best part of this anime. The importent thing is it's chinese animation, well chinese's cultures is completely different from japanese so this anime normally had lot of different in basic concepts, art works and language so even this anime had lot of postivie points it's still under-rated. This animation style din't bother me so in my opinion it's a good anime.

One of the worst MC in any show I have seen. The story focuses around the MC hiding his powers so much so that it will piss you off. Extremely annoying show to watch. Would not recommend
