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.

An anime one by Studio Deen correctly: adapting it AFTER it was finished rather than adapting it BEFORE it finished. Fascinating. And this anime is by far, my favorite shonen anime ever since watching Full Metal Alchemist. Story... It follows the story of 12 year old Ueki Kouske. He has the power to turn trash into trees. He was given this power by the teacher Mr K. (Kobashen) as a God Candidate (King Candidate in the manga). This is a big battle where other middle schoolers with power fight for the Null Talent of Zai which lets you get whatever talent you want. If Ueki uses his power on a non talent user, he loses his Zai, and if he loses all of these, he will disappear, and Mori is going to make sure he doesn't. This series basically follows this plot line. I love this story. This is the summary I can give without spoiling the whole thing. It's simplistic, but it's really good in my opinion. In my opinion, PERFECT for Studio Deen considering their mindset. I was engaged all the way through. Good for preteens or kids in their nines and tens. Animation is nice and fluid for something so "old." Nothing too bad, nothing too horrible, but I love the mad hair colors like TEAL HAIR, and ORCHARD HAIR and whatnot. IT'S FUN. I never knew hair was teal before in anime until I saw this. The art is better than in the manga, too, because the manga's art was horrible! The anime proves that it can be art fluid.  THE SOUND IS AMAZING. It fits with the world well, the voices are PERFECT. Especially Mori's omg... fits her so well, I can't even. THE CHARACTERS ARE FAB. There isn't much development until later, but I love every single character (including Robert Hayden). All of them are really funny in my opinion and shape up to be a really oddball cast.    I really enjoyed this anime, and would watch it hundreds of times if I could! Such a touching ending. Hit me right at home. Watch it! You'll love it! Who cares what studio did it? It's good.
