Komik yg satu ini menurutku tergolong unik dari tema cerita.
Yaitu mendukung GO GREEN!,entah secara tidak langsung atau tidak , komikusnya punya inspirasi dari jargon:
Klo aku bnr2 punya kekuatan mengubah sampah menjadi pohon.
Pgnnya membuat jakarta seperti New Zealand. PSi keren!
Pastinya polusi di Jkt akan bekurang, krn banyaknya pohon..
Trus klo ada yng nebang2 pohon?
G usah takut, bikin aja penjara dari pohon alias hutan, kn nantinya di terkurung,tersesat, kelaperan,kecap

Recommends it for: anyone who enjoyed Shaman King, who likes trees, or who is looking for a fun, light read
Shelves: comics
This manga is fast paced, goofy, and hilarious. It's very entertaining!

The art style is loose and appealing. It's not "slick" but instead has a hand-done, slightly rough look that I really enjoy. The story moves along quickly. The style of comedy is very random.

The main character reminds me of Yoh from Shaman King - blase and a bit detached, coasting through life, but willing to get serious when things get tough.

Overall this is a really good, light read.

I have watched its anime series when I was in highschool, I liked it a lot. My brother bought all of its volume last month, I didn't have anything to do last night so I decided to read its first volume and it never changed, I still liked it! It's so cool and funny! They still look so young in the manga, nevertheless the story is still the same story I've seen in the anime series. I'm going to start reading the next volumes. :)
LOVE THIS BOOK! Ueki is such a strong character and I love all of his friends and foes! The villians in this story arre miraculously drawn and so creative. I love the feeling of always wanting to know what's next and thinking about this book all the time! The art and storyline are both soooo awesome!

Haven't read the manga but I've watch the anime. This is very similar to Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. I like it because it is funny and action-packed but at the same time it also has a heart and the back stories of the characters are really well done.

I have also read a preview of this in the Shounen Jump magazine. Yes, I love shounen. Anyways, it was fairly entertaining, so I suppose I'll get into its depth sometime.
This is, like, one of the best mangas ever. Fukuchi is a master of humor.

So great. Read it.
lupa kalo pernah baca ini zaman SMA dulu...kayaknya pernah nonton animenya juga ^^
Ceritanya bagus, saya ingin punya "bakat" seperti Ueki XD
sayang gambarnya kurang bagus
