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.

The translations are so's horrifying.

I stopped around chapter 70, because it was nauseating how many times they used the word "Like". I....Like...totally don't want you to leave.

If you find this manga decently translated, I'll say it's worth reading, and would give it an 8 instead of a 6.

for some reason, rave reminds me of bleach, i have no idea why, maybe it's cause it's so long, i don't know... oh, but this actually ends... i don't actually think that bleach is ending any time soon... anyway, this isn't a bad series, you should totally read it, and it actually has romance in it...

from what I gather so far, I love it. I can't wait until more of the scans come in on onemanga and by dragonguard. The art needed work, yes, but what doesn't? The author was only starting out, he did a good job.

for me, rave is one of manga that i read completely from first to end. what i must say is the story is way too fast, quite too naive, and very light. and truly i only like the middle of story. no objections with the artwork
overall, it very worth read manga, but just for have some light fun.

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.

The drawings aren't really good, and the plot fluency isn't anything to brag about, but heck, its a thing to read.

Addicting... true at first the story and characters were sub-par but later on into the series, it really starts to get alot better. Everything about it changes. The character and plot and the atmosphere and tone went drastically better . Just leaves you wanting more and more.

Bare in mind it's still a typical adventure and fantasy type shounen. But it's exceptionally different. As said before at first it was slow but later on it gets much better. There isn't much side tracking or "fillers" The story moves fast and never drags around. Plus the characters are interesting to say the least.

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.

similar to a previous comment, i have to say i prefer the anime to the manga (i generally prefer anime to manga version of same story). but still, the story is interesting, the idea is somewhat old - a person finding out about their mysterious past and a guy looking for his father fighting an evil organisation on the way.

art is ok, plot is interesting and character are great. PLUE IS DA MAN!!!!
