The Law of Ueki

This anime starts pretty weak. When you first walk into The Law of Ueki, there's not really anything to pull you in. It's a shounen anime. Ok, sweet, shounen I can get in the mood for shounen. So what's the main character able to do? Turn trash into trees. Awesome! wait what. He can turn trash into..... trees...

That's pretty much what The Law of Ueki will hit you with. However, that's what turns this anime into something so brilliant.

--Story--
You've read the synopsis so let's cut to the chase. The story in The Law of Ueki is definitely not its strongest point. As read more

Summary

The Law of Ueki, follows the story of Ueki. A middle schooler in japan who has a strong since of justice and unsual powers. Watch as he battles his way to victory with the power to turn trash into trees!

Overall Rating:(9/10)

Animation

The animation is on par with that of Zatch bell. While not the best animation around it is far from the worst. And in the big dramatic sences the animation quality become very good. Over all very decent animation.

Rating:(8/10)

Sound

Great sound track I personally am going to get the series intro song for my MP3 player. The rest of the sound tracks read more

Recommendations

I wouldn't call it the same storyline but there are some parallels.
#1 tournament that decides who becomes "king"
#2 superpowers
#3 strong feel for justice and friendship
#4 powers are lent (Ueki: from their god candidate; shaman: from their ghost)
#5 A girl that decided to become the main guy's "manager"

The rest is completely different though, characters aren't really similar.
They're both about friendship. There are also people with special abilities (Power Users in TLoU and those who ate the Devil's Fruit in OP). These animes are both shounen and main character is a little (maybe more than little) stupid.

Later in both animes the main characters form a 5-man team. They are also similar in some ways: Ueki -> Luffy (stupid, brave, friendly) ; Sano -> Zoro (strong, manly) ; Hideyoshi -> Usopp (liars, weak in combat) ; Mori -> Nami (not very strong in combat girls) ; Chopper -> Tenko.

Opening Theme

#1: "Falco" by Hitomi Shimatani (eps 1-32)
#2: "No Regret" by Kumi Koda (eps 33-51)

Ending Theme

#1: "Kokoro no Wakusei ~Little planets~" by Aiko Kayo (eps 1-15)
#2: "Earthship ~Uchuusen Chikyuugou~" by SweetS (eps 16-32)
#3: "Kono machi de wa dare mo ga mina jibun igai no nani ka ni naritagaru" by The Ivory Brothers (eps 33-42)
#4: "Bokutachi Ni Aru Mono" by Romi Paku (eps 43-50)
#5: "True Blue" by Hitomi Shimatani (ep 51)
