Ueki no Housoku tells the story of the Battle of the Supernatural Powers, a tournament to decide who will be the next King of the Celestial World. Each candidate (100 in total) is required to choose a junior high school student to act as their fighter. Each student is given a unique power—the power to change one thing into something else. 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.

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

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 ...
