Synopsis

Long ago, a war was waged between the forces of darkness and light as Dark Brings—stones containing dark power beyond human ability—put the world at risk with their destructive force. In order to stem the tide of darkness, a lone swordsman used holy power known as the Rave to destroy the source of every Dark Brings. The resulting explosion, which came to be known as the Overdrive, destroyed a tenth of the world; fragments of the Rave were scattered throughout.

Groove Adventure Rave takes place fifty years after the Overdrive. A group known as Demon Card has collected the remaining Dark Brings, using them to lay siege to a number of towns. Meanwhile, a young swordsman by the name of Haru Glory has inherited both the Rave and its guardian, Plue, making him the next Rave Master. With the aid of an amnesiac drifter by the name of Elie and a silver-manipulating blacksmith by the name of Musica, Haru must scour the world in search of the scattered Rave Stones and put an end to the Dark Brings and Demon Card for once and for all.

Groove Adventure Rave is a 51-episode anime based on the manga with the same name by Mashima Hiro. It lasted between October 13, 2001 and September 28, 2002.

The genres include: shounen, comedy, action, adventure and drama.

Story: 8
Groove Adventure Rave doesn't have the most original story. It's roughly like this: Haru Glory, a 16 years old "Rave Master", must collect all five Rave-stones to prevent the world from being destroyed by the terrifying power of Darkbring, which caused Overdrive, a huge explosion which destroyed 1/10 of the world 50 years before. So, basically Groove Adventure Rave seems like your average collect-'em-all anime where the main character read more

Basically, this anime is about good vs evil like many other animes. The leading characters are Haru and Elie and Plue maybe. Haru is a boy who has left the village with his so called dog Plue to vanquish dark bring(evil stone power) which is currently in the possession of Demon Card an evil organisation.
Elie has lost her memory and she is trying to retrace her steps to get her memory back. Both characters awkwardly meet and agree to help each other out.

The drawing is not all there but the story and gags kind of help in my opinion, as you will understand once you read more

Story: 8/10
The story is fairly basic: Boy must find magic stones to defeat the villain. But man, oh man, does this Anime get it right. It starts off fairly slow, but picks up real quick. It stretches out rather well over the course of all 51 episodes, and does it's job. The ending, on the other hand, does leave a bad taste in ones mouth, for reasons that should be obvious if you've seen the show.

Art: 8/10
The art is fair game for a show this old. It's old, and you can tell, but somehow, it ages well. It's got the old-school hand-drawn element to it, read more

After seeing most of the reviews of this show, not much is explain why people love it or hate it(but mostly people love this)with the exception of one that is top rated at the moment. Here is my review of rave master and hope this is helpful to you.

Story:7/10
The story is very typical as its just a certain boy who is destine to go and stop a great evil but must collect something in order to get stronger and stop it. So why is this enjoyable? I'll tell you why its because of its back story and how the plot progresses. There is so read more
