Kousuke Ueki, a student of the Hinokuni Junior High School, is picked by a Celestial King Candidate, Koba-sen, to participate in a competition where people battle out to become the Celestial King and only the strongest will prevail. Embodied with the ability to turn garbage into trees, Kousuke will be joining in the battle against other junior high school students in this selection. This sets the premise for the earth-friendly battle where the students will pit their powers against the rest, with a reward of the Blank Talent giving motive for students to win.

Episode List

01: Kosuke Ueki’s Law of Righteousness


A shounen action battle series with some really unique powers. Doesn’t try to subvert any tropes but does them really, really well.


Despite the anime is generic shonen anime, its story and plot are deeper yet light than other shonen anime. Absolutely recommended.


and T O U R N A M E N T A R C ! !


I’d say so-so, it’s funny sometimes but I feel no depth in the characters.
