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.

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.

Starts off well enough but later on it shows its colors, well hard to expect anything serious from the same guy who makes Fairy Tail, still I'm not particularly fond of dumbness and the "I'll fill the world with darkness because I'm evil" reasoning is annoying, "I'll stop you 'cause I'm good and light", that goes around in circles, that's the depth of the plot which by the way is full of holes, might be enticing in your early teens but I'm not in my early teens.
Also, it's way too naive, how many guys turn good after being defeated, chars die and revive all the time and as in FT the "emotions are strength" setting is boring, as a is the overused "I won't kill" preset, most manga simply can't use it without being cliched, dumb and naive so they fail, as far as I can remember the only series that managed were Trigun, History's strongest disciple Kenichi and Gundam seed. But the worst part is how they keep talking about justice yet let a guy that killed thousands go just because he had "a change of heart" since even if he did have it he can't change what you have done, that, is not justice, it's BS.
Even so, I like it more than I like Fairy Tail at least (only saw FT anime thou, needless to say I didn't like it much). Chars are actually likable and funny at times, the action is good and there are a few moving and exciting moments. And, as I said the start is good and as it happens, I liked the last 1/4 of the manga too.
Other than that, I agree with much what Jools said thou I don't find the chars that terrible.

If this would've been one of my first experiences of manga, then surely I would've enjoyed it a lot more. But I'm used to all the tropes, clichés and mundane stories by now, and this is definately one of them.

There are only two scenes in the entire manga that I felt was up to par (certainly not with the great ones, but at least a good one), and both of those were deaths, so there's bound to be a little more feeling in them.

The story is bland, the characters are forgettable, the humor... the humor is borderline great at times, but it's not a treasure trove. It's a sack filled with coal and a few of them happen to be diamonds.

The art is similar to Fairy Tail (duh.) and One Piece. Nothing too intricate, but I'm definately not a fan of the current artstyle-craze (that's in bloody EVERYTHING), so I'd say that's a plus.

If you're in it for the fights, steer clear. They're among the worst. Some enemies have pretty cool powers, but it all comes down to Haru and his will, so no matter what power they have, they lose anyway. Without any real reason, other than that he's the Rave Master. Because when I say comes down to Haru, I REALLY mean it. The others have their few moments, but in general, it's Haru Haru Haru Haru, Raaaaaa~ve Maaaaaaaaa~stah! and he always manages to defeat EnemyX because he gets angry, or learn a new skill for his sword, or because of willpower. Snore. Snore. Snore. Snore.

Oh, and the characters' personalities are asinine. Complete tropes without ANY depth.

The five is for while all of its faults, it didn't bore me. ...Not saying that I enjoyed it either, though.

If you care about depth, intelligence and quality in a Shounen-manga, this isn't something for you. If you just want something mindless that's just like everything else out there, by all means.

Yup. It's the typical suddenly hero type of story with big-boobed girls and what not.

But, it is also a story that is well drawn and written. Despite the cliches, it manages to pull through in my mind as a good manga. Haru is a fun character to watch, and Plu is just the cutest dog ever.

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

Quite an emotional manga   
Rating: 8.5 / 10.0

For readers that wants a shonen with a touch of fantasy, you come to the right manga page.

Personally I love the manga. At the beginning, it is quite bumpy but this is Hiro Mashima's first manga so I can't blame him for a shaky start. But the story does grow and the adventures are filled with hilarious tales and wonderful character development and relationship.

Later on the story, there are several points where it gets dramatic. Since I'm an emotional person, I have cry on those occassions.

But I see some plotholes in this manga, but they're quite minor in my opinion. Though there is one plot hole that bothers me.

I would rate this manga 7/10, it gets a 8.5 since it was the mangaka first attempt.
