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

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.

Ueki is handling its premise very well for a shounen series. Yet if you really think about it, the premise is so simple it doesn’t really deserve two full seasons to tell it. And for that reason it gets repetitive and predictable early on, especially when you see that there isn’t any mystery or unknown elements in it.

Ueki as a protagonist is your archetypical shounen hero. He is stupid, impolite, rushes towards trouble driven by his ideals, and has a million times more stamina points than anyone else in the show. As cool as it felt for a few episodes, then you see that this 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

Recommendations

Anime: Fairy Tail
Both are about allmighty friendship. Both have enough comedy in the fights. Both have no noir at all. 
reportRecommended by Real-Hussein
Anime: Shaman King
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.

Anime: One Piece
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.

Anime: Hunter x Hunter
In both series the main chars are actually weaker than their opponents and they win with pure strategy. 
reportRecommended by kujika
Anime: Shijou Saikyou no Deshi Kenichi
Similar comedy action. Both focus on nakama and friendship. Kenichi has more fan service though. 
reportRecommended by gels31
Anime: Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho
Both refer to the use of Super Powers of great destruction,also, both anime's have a great story line and the main characters share a common goal,to become the best.
