Synopsis:

There's an adage that one man's trash is another man's treasure; but for Kosuke Ueki, one man's trash is another man's... tree?! Junior high school teacher Mr. K is in the running for the title of Celestial King. Candidates must select a junior high school student to endow powers upon, and then the students might fight each other mercilessly. The victorious student's benefactor will become the new Celestial King! Kosuke was Mr. K's choice, and for his power, he chose the ability to turn trash into trees. Furthermore, if he uses his abilities to harm others, he will lose one of his natural talents. Now, Kosuke must battle a variety of other power users to help Mr. K win it all, all while keeping his talents intact!

The tournament to become God or the tournament to become Shaman King? Competitors gather around Ueki and Yoh because they like their personality and convictions and together they go to the trounament to defeat people who want to use the prize for evil. These two anime have very similar structures and main characters so if you enjoyed one you should enjoy the other.

Kodras

Although I've not finished watching Shaman King myself (yet) it's already displayed a strong tournament theme similar to that of Ueki. Both contain fights which are organised by a higher power, and both main characters have opponents they either look forward to fighting, or don't really want to fight. If you like anime where the action is a bit more structured, these two are for you.

Kari5

Both these shows take place during a large tournament, to become God or the Shaman King. There are a few main characters, with new friends and enemies appear every few episodes. There's plenty of life lessons including friendship and trust. The characters are similar in the way that some are just wacky looking so you remember them.

Deer50

They both compete in a tournament to become "king." Powers are lent by spirits/candidates. They both have a "fight for your friends" motto.Characters have different abilities. Both have a villian with a bad past bent on destroying the world. One prankster/jokester character joins the main group.

Hunter x Hunter

Hunter x Hunter

Drawn to the mystique of the unknown, Hunters travel the world in search of terrifying creatures, incredible riches, and unexplored lands. Gon Freecss is a naive-yet-determined young boy who aspires to join the ranks of these individuals, in order to find his missing father Ging - a master of the profession himself. To reach his goal, he partakes in the formidable Hunter Exam, a series of tests that push the participants to their physical and mental limits, with a Hunter License as the prize. During the exam Gon befriends vengeful Kurapika, doctor-to-be Leorio, and skilled assassin Killua, who have entered for their own reasons. But with the sinister Hisoka standing in their way, will Gon and his friends be able to succeed in obtaining their reward, or even escaping with their lives?

Hunter x Hunter has the same mood and feel of Law of Ueki when you are watching it. The plot of Law of Ueki is similar to that of Hunter X Hunter. I also think that you would find some of the characters to be the same in a funny way.

Cilas

Both anime incorporate extremely varied fighting techniques, which produce very entertaining fights. Also, the main characters are both easily likable which is one of the most important things.

However, while Hunter X Hunter is more plot driven, Law of Ueki is all about the fights and gags.

eLampe

Both Hunter x Hunter and Law of Ueki are about slightly simple people who just about always manage to pull through in the clutch and never give up no matter what. The series are both rather humourous, but not without a serious side.

APWZ

The similarities in some of the battle scenes and skills gave me the impression that Law of Ueki was the predecessor to Hunter X Hunter, but after a little research I learned that not only were they not directly related, Law of Ueki was made after the last Hunter OVA.

Konjiki no Gash Bell!!

Konjiki no Gash Bell!!

Takamine Kiyomaro is a junior high school student who thinks he’s too smart for school, to the disappointment of his mother. On his 14th birthday a surprise literally crashes through Kiyomaro’s window, in the form of… a small naked child?! His name is Gash Bell and his goal is simple: be a mentor for Kiyomaro, at the request of Kiyomaro’s departed father. In return, Kiyomaro must help discover the secrets behind Gash Bell’s amnesia and his past, with only a red book as a clue. As if things weren’t crazy enough, Kiyomaro soon discovers that Gash Bell is a demon -- one of many on Earth -- who can be forced back to the demon world if its corresponding book is burned. Armed with the power of the red book, Kiyomaro must now help Gash Bell defend himself against other demons who want to vanquish him from the Earth, lest his newfound friend vanish forever!

Gash Bell and Law of Ueki remind me an awful lot of each other, though not for anything tangible. Yes, both are shounen... but beyond that, they each have a similar blend of random comedy, action, and battles. As each of these series is fairly unique in this regard, I think this is a good recommendation. If you liked one, try out the other!

GodsDragon

If you enjoyed The Law of Ueki you might also be interested in looking at Zatch Bell! They both share the same basic story element of getting a power and participating in a tournament to become king with many side adventures along the way. So if you like the idea of a teen acquiring powers, getting into lots of battles and entering into a tournament to become king then Zatch Bell would be a good anime to check out.

AkumaSama

In both anime there are a lot of battles that will determine who will be the new king of  an world  seperated from the human world. there a a lot of candidates that come to fight and they have special powers. So if you like one of these anime you'd like the other one. Zatch bell and The Law Of Ueki have a similar plot, but each anime is unique.

eminAAnime

there both similar in the way that the 2 main characters try to become king  or win a competition of life or death in order to help someone else. There both extrememly good animes i recomend to watch them both!!!!

Bleach

Bleach

Fifteen-year-old Ichigo Kurosaki is a typical teen with fighting skills, two caring sisters and a special trait: he can see ghosts. However, when Ichigo and his family find themselves under attack by a huge beast, Ichigo discovers that there’s more to the supernatural world than the everyday specter. Vengeful spirits known as Hollows roam the world in search of devouring souls, and Shinigami – soul reapers – work tirelessly to defeat them and guide normal ghosts into a place called Soul Society. Ichigo valiantly fights the Hollow that threatens his sisters, but on the verge of defeat a Shinigami named Rukia gives him her powers, turning him into a Shinigami himself. Ichigo must now adjust to his new life of both vanquishing and saving souls for the sake of Soul Society.

Besides the fact that Bleach and Law of Ueki pertain to an alternative universe, they also have another major common similarity: their protagonist is a super-powered and powerful power user. The reason why I repeated the word 'power' many times over is to emphasis their crazy imbalanced capabilities. They will thrill you with their various techniques and draw you into their universe. Cheers!

cassiesheepgirl

If you like action packed anime with a healthy dose of humour and fun then both Bleach and Law of Ueki are for you. Both series have a central character who is learning about their power whilst trying to achieve their goals. Als both series place a large emphasis on teamwork and friendship as the best way to succeed rather than trying to do it all alone. If you like one of these series then it is well worth at least giving the other a go.

charvisioku

Ichigo and Ueki have very similar ideals and both have the tendency to take ridiculous risks in order to help other people, whether they know them or not.

I think these animes compliment each other perfectly in that they both have the same kind of story, but with completely different elements - e.g. Celestial King Tournament is entirely different from Soul Society. People who like Law of Ueki will almost certainly enjoy Bleach, and I personally feel that both are animes to watch before you die.

Naruto

Naruto

Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he's forged.

Both anime incorporate extremely varied fighting techniques, which produce very entertaining fights. Also, both are (for the most part) a light-hearted anime.

They both have a tendency to make the "bad guys" seem like good guys who are just misunderstood or were led astray at some point, too. Oh what happened to the good old days when a villain was just evil, instead of a deeply-hurt and emotionally-scarred tree-hugger?

While Naruto has more story depth and episodes of the two, Law of Ueki will more than likely be the funner ride.

azntenniskid

In both Naruto and Law of Ueki there is action and comedy. The characters have special powers and want to protect everyone, and both of them make friends with almost all of their enemies.

closetanimefan

Both of these anime center around msin characters that want to protect their friends, convert their emenies into friends, and don't seem like the strongest people at first. They also both have strong mentor characters, a lot of action, and female characters that tell the main character what an idiot he is being. If you liked one, I think there is a strong chance you will like the other
