If you liked the Law of Ueki manga, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
All Shinta wants is to find a girlfriend, and constantly falls in 'love at first sight' with his classmates. Unfortunately for the boy, none seem to reciprocate his intense feelings, and thus, he does the only thing he can think of – he visits a local shrine to hopefully have his wish granted. Much to his surprise, Shinta encounters a god at the shrine who decides to grant his wish, and the next morning, Shinta wakes up next to the lovely goddess Isana. But all wishes come at a price – it's that time of year when gods throughout the world battle it out for territory, and each deity like Isana must use a human as their champion. Now, Shinta must fight countless enemies for his newfound girlfriend, even though she doesn't seem to want to give him the time of day!
Normal guys given superpowers by a deity? Check! Must fight in some sort of 'god competition'? Check! Action, comedy and superpowers? Check! Both of these titles are remarkably similar, so if you liked one try out the other.
Shirihama Kenichi is a weak scaredy-cat, and his status as the karate club's punching bag has earned him the name of ‘Weak Legs'. One day Kenichi meets Miu and, impressed by her skill after she effortlessly throws him to the ground, he follows her to the Ryouzanpaku dojo. There he finds five great masters of martial arts, and driven by his desire to become stronger, he begs them to accept him as their student - though it won't be easy. Kenichi endures harsh training (and injury) from Akisame - the philosophizing Jujitsu master; Apachai - the Muay Thai ‘God of Death'; Kensei - the ecchi Chinese Kempo Master; and Shigure - the weapons prodigy. Finally after proving his determination, he is accepted by Shio - the 100-dan Karate Master, who had initially wanted nothing to do with him. Now Kenichi walks the long and arduous path to becoming a master himself, all whilst trying to protect those he cares about from anyone who would dare to harm them.
Aside from a general, "Shounen FTW" aspect, both Law of Ueki and History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi share a few similarities that make either one worth trying if you liked the other. Both focus heavily on the idea of justice, and right and wrong, as well as that of hard work. While the two protagonistsare complete contrasts in terms of natural ability, both place heavy emphasis of working hard to achieve their goal. Both also have a similar tournament-esque format with the characters progressing through ever-increasingly difficult fights.
Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas. As he was about to be executed he revealed that he hid all of his wealth, including the legendary treasure known as One Piece, on an island at the end of the Grand Line - a treacherous and truly unpredictable sea. Monkey D. Luffy is a spirited, energetic and somewhat dim-witted young man with a very big dream: to find One Piece and become the Pirate King! However Luffy is no ordinary boy, as when he was younger he ate one of the Devil's Fruits and gained its power to become a Rubber Man. Now in this grand age of pirates Luffy sets out to gather a crew and sail to the most dangerous sea in the world so that he can fulfill his dream... and maybe even his appetite!
On it's most basic level, both One Piece and Law of Ueki are fairly typical mainstream shounen manga. Both are highly comedic and very wacky in their content, and the central protagonists, Luffy and Ueki are both fairly dim-witted yet inherently powerful teens with a habit of changing those around them. Both manga also centre on the idea of friendship and teamwork. Though One Piece is far more polished, and much more epic, if you enjoyed one, it's worth checking out the other/
After nearly committing suicide one day, Kurando finds himself in the unwanted company of Lisa, a buxom, blonde-haired beauty who informs the boy that she's actually the reincarnation of a goddess, and from now on she'll be his master. Humanity's fate lies with the results of an epic war that's currently taking place on Earth, and each goddess must designate an 'avatar' that will fight for her - unfortunately for Kurando, Lisa has chosen him for that task. Now, in addition to dealing with the demands of his new master, who is also his classmate, he must battle the countless foes that stand in their way... even though all Kurando wants to do is keep his sister Mafuyu safe from harm.
