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.

after reading Fairy Tail (his other work) this seems to pale in comparison, but after reading further on the storyline becomes much better and the art seems to grow as well, plotline develops into something leaving me wanting more. a must read for shonen enthusiasts.

statisfying ending

one of the few manga that actually has good ending, I am often frustrated by how author seems to have problem with ending.

I actually prefer a short battle scene and more story,so this is actually perfect.
those that have battle scene goes on for chapter making me begging it to quickly finish and get on with the story is tiring me and making me lazy to read.

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.

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.

This is a very fun read. I really like Mashima's artwork. Fight scenes are awesome. The universe created is over the top and done very well. Very original Manga (can't understand how people say this is a copy of DBZ). The story does start out weak, but does pick up and get much better. Same thing with with the art. Pick this one if your a fantasy or action reader.

Read this if you want a typical feel good, good over evil, happy ending shounen manga. Nothing new here, but I give this one credit over similar mangas like Fairy Tail and One Piece for few reasons.

1. It's not infinitely dragged on. The pacing is good and it has a nice ending that ties up everything. Actually, it feels slightly rushed near the end, but that's OK with me because by then I had already seen enough of good guy fights impossibly strong bad guy, gets beat up, comes back through his will power stuff.

2. People die. Really. This is very unshounen-like in my opinion. Mangaka does pull some typical shounen style "he's-beat-up-so-bad-everyone-thought-he-was-dead-but-he-was-actually-bar ely-hanging-on-to-life-and-will-be-perfectly-fine-after-resting-few-days-with-no-side-effects" . But, some good and bad guys do die. For me, this made the fights feel a lot more epic and meaningful.

3. Ending didn't have any surprises, but it was satisfactory. No wondering whatever happened to...? Or why didn't they do...?

I recommend reading it if you're a fan of the genre.

I finished readning it fourth or fifth (can't tell for sure) time and I'm sure that it wasn't my last time. No matter how many times i return to Rave, i'll be always be crying . Sombody may say, that it's cliched etc. but i don't care. Besides, i've read many shounen mangas, but no other was like this one! Feelings that it gave me - absolutely uniqe!
I love main characters and enemies too. It's rare that i don't really hate anyone. I was really attached to everyone, thats why i'm always crying while reading it
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Especially: Shiba last moments (when he finally meets woman he loved for 50 years just before he died) and whole Sieghart part "promise from one man to another"- he will always remain my favourite hero of all mangas and books i've read ! i just love him! *still crying*

One of the few mangas, with satisfying ending "right in time".
I like Fairy Tail, but for me Rave far is better. Story is much deeper and has suspense moments ( which FT lacks).

I recommend this manga to EVERYONE! I't will forever stay in my heart. Too bad that anime wasn't so good. I hope that someday there will be remake and it'll contain all volumes.

It's a really good series, one of my favorite actally. I love the characters, the plot, the ending, etc. The only problem is that it's really kind of naive and too light-hearted. The heros are smarter than the villains most of the time, so it doesn't really seem dramatic when they win. But that's really the only problem for me. It's a very good story overall.

I didnt like the anime at all!

the manga has it points when I hate it. but sinces its a manga you can just turn the page haha

I really like how the plot has turned out and the art isnt bad. its pretty decent actually. its thorough.

Ares6 is an idiot. DBZ is the ugliest stupidest thing I have ever seen. right next to Deathnote. but thats just my opinion.
