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.

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

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)


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.



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

Following a recommendation on hunter x hunter 2011, I ended up at The law of ueki, and after watching all the 52 eps, this is what I felt : it has a cliche plot, cliche side characters, cliche mc, cliche setting of a tournament, cliche concept,.......and yet.........non cliche powers, different style of fighting, outright comedy, and  cool character roles.(i shall clear the difference between characters, and their role in character part)

The story is based on a knock out tournament (a popular tag which few even classify as a genre of its own) and a final prize for the winner. This concept has been overused like read more

___________________________________________ Review the 6th

Chihuahua Review(short&sweet): This is a good shounen(bunch of guys and action) to watch. There are alot of unique characters. Let me rephrase that there are a lot of UNIQUE powers here.

------------------------------>In Depth Review:<------------------------
STORY: This is not, I repeat NOT just some lame, generic kid show. The story here is a for spot to become God. Here angels become god-candidates who choose kids to give powers to and then let them battle. The main character Ueki who believes deeply in justice. This may still sound lame and generic but the story execution was great with fun interesting strategies in every battle. The only read more

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. 
reportRecommended by kujika
Both are about allmighty friendship. Both have enough comedy in the fights. Both have no noir at all. 
reportRecommended by Real-Hussein
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. 
reportRecommended by Gadamf
Similar comedy action. Both focus on nakama and friendship. Kenichi has more fan service though. 
reportRecommended by gels31
In both series the main chars are actually weaker than their opponents and they win with pure strategy. 
reportRecommended by kujika
Both anime basically have a "fighting" contest in team mode with each member having a special ability or "power." Even though with Ueki, it originally starts as a battle for the "Null Zai," eventually, it does become a battle to save lives, as in the Flame of Recca.
