    Has anyone watched this new anime? The plot:

    "Junior High School student Ueki Kosuke has a strange ability: he can turn anything that he believes to be garbage into a tree. This ability was given to him by his homeroom teacher, a man named Kobayashi. Ueki manages to keep his ability a secret until one day when his classmate, Hori Ai, finds out about it. .Hori initially had been following him in order to debunk his true character, but begins to help him when she sees the sacrifice he must make to use his talent..

    Ueki soon finds himself embroiled in a battle of 100 participants, one of which is his teacher, Kobayashi. Each of the participants in the tournament must choose a champion from their students and give them a special ability, as Kobayashi had to Ueki. The abilities that were chosen, such as the skill to turn a towel into iron, give the student receiving it a better chance of winning the tournament. The participants in the tournament must then make their student champions fight each other. Whoever student wins will become the next "god", and. his student will receive a "blank ability" that can become any ability at all.."

    Meh. Very cliche plot. I'm giving it my standard "watch 10 Episodes, Continue or Stop" if it doesn't get interesting.

    Right now, I'm up to Episode 7 which actually was good in my opinion. Episode 6 was also good.

    I watched two episodes yesterday, and I intend on watching about four episodes (my usual trial number) before deciding whether it's worth watching or not.

    It reeks of Gash Bell, but the difference that I like here is the powers of the main characters are more original. I mean, plant growth powers aren't a new thing or anything, but usually it's something given to a side character that has one appearance or something. In this show, the powers commonly found on main characters (that fire guy in episode two, for example) are given to one-shot characters. Plus, I like the God in this. So pimp...

    I would watch till episode 7 before you decide. But man only watching four episodes, if i did that i might not have watched FMA and Mai HiME and both of which are amazing.

    The Episode 10 RAW was released and was the best episode I seen so far. I'm sticking with this! :cool

    From the Episode 11 preview, the first arc will begin.

    I've only seen up to ep. 7. Seems fairly interesting. Nothing great so far, but not bad either.

    Naruto's first 7 episodes beats it completely though. The powers are also...weird.

    The main villian (Robert), does more than blow bubbles later on.

    Oh and a Fighting game is coming out soon.

    Yeah. Things really started getting better once he decided to fight Roberto's Jyuudan. It's not one of the best I have seen in 2005 but it's still fairly enjoyable. Haven't seen Mori for a couple of eps now. Where the hell is she?

    ueki decided to fight the robert's 10 on his own, so mori didn't come along or they'd be suspicious of her =P but she comes back around episode 16 or 17

    The show is really unique in its own rights but it isn't on my priority list. I'll finish watching other animes before I continue on this one... (I'm at episode 12 if I remember correctly)

    It's still nice though. :cool

    I started watching it again today after seeing this thread. Too bad there are few seeders on the torrents so it's going quite slow. :sad

    The begining's a bit tedious, but it gets better in the later episodes.

    Ueki's stupidity is hilarious... I'm slowly thinking he's very much like Naruto.

    Yes, Fansubbing is still in production. However, the fansubbers are starting to get behind, Episode 29 just aired in Japan.

    Patience is a virtue, they may be planning to have a double release or more.

    don't worry, they're still subbing it....who knows...they might do a double release XD


    ueki is startng to get REALLY REALLy good. i just saw episode 26, it's just plain amazing. better then any anime i've ever seen. it started off not so good, but really starts going after episode 21. You guys gotta watch this anime.

    One of the subbers has stated that they'll be releasing 1 episode of Ueki per Day until they catch up with the raws.

    5 days. 5 Ueki Episodes. HELL YEAH!! :cool
