The Continent of Song is in chaos. The sinister secret society known as Demon Card is using the power of Dark Bring to destroy everything in their path. The only things capable of stopping Dark Bring are the Rave stones. Unfortunately, the Rave Stones were scattered around the globe in an explosion 50 years ago, so now they must be collected by the Rave Master in order to stop Dark Bring once and for all. This new task has been given to Haru Glory; a sixteen-year-old boy from Garage Island. The World's fate now rests on the new, young Rave Master.

My Very First

Right now, I can say where the others are coming from with the whole Shounen cliche but to be honest, it has a great plot, very likable characters, and a great ending. NO! Scratch that... having an ending is amazing enough. The cliches were over-ridden by character's likability. I really can't say anything bad about this because I truly liked every single character in it--even the villains.

I'm a shoujo fan, BUT this is my very first manga. Ever. So Rave getting me hooked into the manga world deserves a 10/10 in my book.

Nevertheless, the characters are deep, storyline's clear. This is the manga I won't ever forget (because this is one of the few series I collected in my manga shelf)

A great Shounen

It was a wonderful read, a very long one too. The manga is quite slow paced. I find it boring from time to time, but nevertheless, it all serves as a good build up to a great climax and a decent ending. I thought the ending could've been a bit more grand, but it was still pretty good, no complain about that. The characters development was decent, not so much the main characters though. The romance was the initial reason why i read this manga, and i have to say, after the first 100 chapters, i was quite frustrated since there was no romance development at all. Now, after over 200 chapters, the romance between the main characters started to pick up the pace a bit. It is one of the manga's main theme, but for many reasons, it feels more like a bonus. It developed very slowly, but it was definitely well developed and believable. The actions were pretty good too. I'm sure glad it didn't drag on forever like bleach or naruto. I guess this is probably one of the best "typical shounen" out there.

when i started reading this, at first, i got bored easily since i'm new to shounen genres but as the story develops, i can't help but hold onto the story until the very end - true enough, i've made the right decision! this is one heck of a series! it made me cry and laugh hard a lot of times. also, the romance in this manga is definitely great! ---> great enough for the likes of a shoujo reader like me! biggrin

It may start out quite strange, and it does have a few small moments where it seems purely absurd, but when you finish reading the series you will be glad you didn't stop.

This is an amazing series, and I highly recommend it.

Great story, bad battle scene

Overall, Rave have a great plot. When I discovered the meaning of the scattered puzzled and traps that showed up in the earlier chapters, I even felt like I've been struck by lightning. This manga make you felt like you know the plot, but you'll be amazed by the really well and unpredictable planed story line. The only downside that make this manga less enjoyable are the battle scene. In the earlier chapters, it is good. But as the story progress, the battle became annoying (sometimes a battle against boss can be finished by only one swing of sword). Overall, the story is really epic except the annoying battle.

I liked this Manga.
There are cliches but it felt good read.

But After i finished it, i felt totally overwelmed for characters.

.............Also i wondered what happened to Jegan.......

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Shiba (I really felt 50 years of unrequisted Love...common how cold he lost against Haru, he loved Lady Resha and for 50 years how could it can be less than Haru's Love for Elie.... but then i understood Shiba himself wanted Haru to win.... )

Seighart (awesome man he could have lived off his life in the past too, but he decided not to interfere with TIME-LINE and thats the TRUE TIME-Gaurdian. The Seighart incident copletely took me by surprise. U know I read this manga almost 2 years ago and yet i remember that incident completely.....something out of twist.)

Reina (Whatever or however she was before, but after she Kissed Musica i never wanted her to die. some said she had sudden change of heart, but I felt she started loving Musica on her first fight only)

and even though people say there was less of Romance, but in every other arc i found a romantic Tragedy and Love.

The epitome of shounen

the story: main stream but there are some really surprising twists in the plot.
the characters: totally main stream. but thats not bad, it fits well with the story.
the ending: leaves you thinking: that was a nice read.
quite a bit of romance sometimes almost tragic
all in all it's definitely worth reading for those who like shounen manga,
action, fantasy and romance manga or dont have anything better to do
personally i think this is one of most enjoyable reads i had though its cliche
the plot captivates you. only thing that could have been better:
the characters abilities... seriously. they are waaay too convenient =D
but hey its the authors first serialized work so forgive him ^^
so my rating is:

A fine shounen

Let's see. Think about a most cliche shounen plot in your mind. A normal teenage boy suddenly got a great power and was destined to be the man save the world. Then he set out for adventure, he got new companions, they met the enemy and each defeat one after one, the enemy got stronger they learn new skill then blah blah final all out battle against his rival.
Well, this exactly the way this shounen go. Is it a bad point? MaybeIf yes, maybe no. I mean it's cliche because it's the most popular shounen plot after all. If you are full of that cliche, stay away from this one, if you just like to read shounen, this is a fine one. You know, If it's not good, it couldnt reach to 300 chapters.

My comment about Rave master.
The art is fine at the beginning as a manga in 1999 and it quickly get better later.
The plot is predictable but it still have enough twist to surprise you.
It's a pretty emotional shounen, at some points it's near the level of a tragedy. And sometimes it can make u lol.

I think this manga meets the standard. You are looking for a complete shounen w/ a pretty decent story, you may want to try this one. Have fun.

very satisfying ending

lets be honest this manga doesn't have the best structure nor the best character development and it does get annoying at some point due to too much emphasis on friendship. (though not to the extent of yugioh)
this manga redeems itself with a spectacular ending which is pretty satisfying. The art is pretty good and clear.
this manga is not the best manga, it drags, lacks in some areas but if you get through it the ending almost justifies the means.
it very satisfying
