The winning King of the Celestial World Candidate will become King of the Celestial World and the winning student will receive the Blank Talent, a talent that can be anything they choose.

The story is a lot like Zatch Bell (Gash Bell) in the beginning, then it sort of develops to a yu yu hakosho feel to it.

The Story is rather fast paced has there is not a lot of down time where the character goes off and trains to evolve in some way. I's mostly about fighting with special powers.

The Art was a bit awkward as the characters got more "attractive" as the series progressed.

Ueki is the the main character and always fights for what's right and sacrificing everything for his friends. This plays a role through out the entire series.

Law of Ueki is a light action manga that is very easy and enjoyable to read.

Story : 7/10
Law of Ueki is about this seemingly dumb, clueless boy Ueki given with a power to turn trash into trees. Later on, he became a candidate to determine the next God and has to fight other candidates to win the talent of . The plot is very straightforward, the hero has power, meets stronger challenger, become stronger, defeat said challenger, cycle repeats. What makes this manga fun for me is the unravelling of each power level for Ueki, much like the shinigami in Bleach with their Shikai and read more

I dislike Ueki's character 'development' - From a chillax kind of guy with wide relaxed eyes into high-energy shounen protag that keeps screaming and has tiny 'fighting' eyes.

The rest of the characters, and enemies, are quite stereotypical (and so is their development) but usually fun.

The power system is fun (Fulfil condition X in order to activate your power), and similar to Jojo or HXH and so on, but feels broken towards the end (Suddenly, many enemies don't have a condition to meet and they can just spam their powers)

The fighting is usually great and filled with strategy and trying to understand your opponent's powers read more
