Characters & Voice Actors
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.
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 grows with every item he finds. And, yeah, that's basically it, but there are also very interesting back stories and under it's stupid upper layer, there is an interesting story for the ones that start watching "Rave", but I can't go into it further without spoiling.
The art for Groove Adventure Rave is above average. It's nice and fluid, but the producers didn't think much about the backgrounds that sometimes look pretty awful. They stuck to the original designs by Mashima Hiro very well, and the art catches the goofyness of the anime.
Not much to say here. The BGM is pretty bland, and the OP's and ED's are pretty boring. The voice actors on another hand were very good. Especially Tomokazu Seki as the main character Haru Glory.
The characters for Groove Adventure Rave are very good.
The main characters are Haru Glory: the Rave Master who has to collect the five Rave-stones to save the world (he is pretty much your average shounen male lead who gets stronger and stronger in order to beat the bad guys), Elie: the mysterious beauty with amnesia trying to remember who she is (the most interesting character whose past is unknown), and Musica: a Silver Claimer (meaning he can bend and shape silver as he wants) who is searching for a very special ship (your regular, arrogant cool-looking guy).
Despite it's lacking story, I really enjoyed Groove Adventure Rave. The last arc was not as good as the others but is still very good. I was entertained the whole way and I definitely recommend Groove Adventure Rave to anyone who's just looking for a fun anime to watch.
Groove Adventure Rave is a shounen-anime, and a good one at that, but it's not the best one ever. Remind yourself of that before watching it. Still, Groove Adventure Rave is a very good anime and will keep you glad for a while.
I hope you found my review helpful, and if you didn't please tell me why, so I can improve myself until next time. 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 watch it that some scenes seem as though they are from dbz and some are just too far fetched.
All in all I give it an 8 and it is worth watching in my opinion. Just don't be too picky. read more
the Main characters are similar the girl decided to join up with the main hero their personality are similar and pluu in there too
Groove Adventure Rave and Fairy Tale are quite similar. They feel the same, the adventures are similar, both main protagonist gilrs are similar, the protagonist boys are smiliar, PLU is in both...
it's just if you watched one of them, you will like the other!!!
Same Artist and same kind of story
they have similar characters and a story about a girl who join a guild and natsu ,who is like haru in a way, is always full of energy. the story also have some magic and also plue is included in the story. its an fun filled with mystery and adventure story.
those two are written by the same writer, and have characters that are similar
& plue is in both of them
Both series are made by the same creator Mashima Hiro. Both contain action and has some comedy in it. Both have some sort of action like groove adventure rave has swords and it has powers or some type of weapon and Fairy Tail has magic. Fairy Tail just started so I cant really say much about it but Groove Adventure has a very great story line and I bet Fairy Tail will as well.
Firstly, the same creator... but after all both series has the same kind of characters... there are also "repeated" characters on both series.
Both series are by the same creator and the characters have similar character designs. Stuff originally from Rave appears or is referenced in Fairy Tai such as the character Plue, a magic known as Etherion and the name Oracion Seis used for an elite group of six people.
1. the main is a cheerful character
2. their dad (of in natsu case dragon dad) is somehow involved in the main storyline
In the OP there's Plue!!!
same type of characters and same concept of the story. it's REALLY similar, if you love fairy tail you will defintely like rave master. I wated both of it, and it's AWSOME!! ;P
Many elements of this series pop up in Fairy Tail often. Many characters have similiar designs as Rave Master characters. Most notably:
* Plue, Haru's guide, being one of Lucy's Celestial Spirits
* Lucy Heartfilia resemble Elie, also, Lisanna "returning from the dead" is similar to Elie's "Resha death subplot"
* Gray Fullbuster resembles Musica, and he wears a necklace that bears resemblance to Haru's Ten Commandments sword or the first piece of RAVE.
* Jellal Fernandes is based off Sieg Hart
* Natsu Dragneel resembles Haru but Let in fighting style
* Faust resembles Shakuma
* Mirajane (when she was younger) resembles Julia
* Aetherion is taken from Etherion and is a highly destructive magic in both series
* Karen Lilica resembles Reina of the Oracion Seis.
* Gildarts Clive takes design elements from Gale Glory and Gale Raregroove
One can also spot characters from Rave Master in the background. The cover for chapter 91 even featured Lucy and Natsu dressed as Haru and Elie from the series.
* Erza's armor has the same 'Heart Kreuz' logo as Elie's tank top.
* Erza Knightwalker's Saint Spear the ten comandments transforms into Silfarion, Mel Force, Explosion, Gravity Core, Blue Crimson, and Rune Save, all with identical abilities.
* Casino in Chapter 75 has a Ruby's figurehead.
* The brand 'Heart Kreuz' is featured prominently (All Requip Amour has logo featured in some way or other, Lucy's Clothes, and both Erza and Lucy have Heart Kreuz Bags, Suitcases, etc.)
* In the Omake Lucy's Photo shoot, Elie, Julia, Belnika, Musica, Ruby and possibly Griff (because it is of the same species as Griff and it has a perverted look on it's face) make a small appearance.
* Griff makes appearances often, the most prominent being in the anime where Happy is chewing him instead of candy
Same have the same writer, Has like Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, Romance, Shounen genres, Both are good shows, And both of the shows have Plue, The Nicola Spirit of Lucy Heartfilia, However, The characters were unique and almost have the same look as the ones at the Fairy Tail.
Both series are written by the same author, Mashima Hiro so expect so similar themes such as friendship, adventure, and the action.
Both series' main protagonist have similar personalities as well as the main female protagonist.
Both series' battles and conflicts also involves magic that relies on skills, teamwork, and a little bit of luck.
Some of the series' artwork and characters' designs are also based off of one and the other. In fact, one character from Groove Adventure Grave even makes their way into Fairy Tail in original format.
Both series' fights are also contains humorous dialogues and comedy.
These were both written by the same guy, and this is immediately apparent, with recycled characters, ideas and even episodes. You'll recognise Plue immediately, and the relationship between Elie and Haru is very similar to that between Lucy and Natsu. Also, the episode with the 'Jiggle butt gang' is pretty much the same in both. Although they are often very similar, it is still worth watching both, as they are both very good animes, and if you like one, you will probably like the other.
Rave is the short lived TV prototype for fairy tale, tho not actually but a majority of its influences are seen in fairy tale. From the Jiggle butt gang to plue the weird cone nosed dog its overly apparent. Also a lot of statues and pictures often have Griffon in them you know the small blue guy with big lips?
You can also see that the female main characters are patterned after each other. I personally think lucy is lesser than ellie tho. Ellie had a more natural appearance where as lucy seems like she trys to hard at times.
Anyway the show is not as action filled as fairy tale and it ended prematurely truly it should have got another season or continued production till a satisfying end could be made. If your the type who carry's onto the manga after a good anime than this may get you interested. The characters are just as well done as fairy tale and even better in some cases (personal opinion) tho not boasting such a large main cast you can enjoy the series quite a bit for its 49 episode run.
Animation is slightly lesser than fairy tale and not as compelling a musical score but it all fits well to the anime. The show is fully of silly humor and sword swinging bad guy thwarting fun.
Both are based off manga written by Hiro Mashima. They have similar art style and characters. Some of Hiro's characters from other manga like to appear within each other. It can be fun trying to find cameos inside the anime!
Well, I'm Gonna Make A Very Common Recommendation
- Both Are Created By Hiro Mashima
- Both Had A Special Crossover
- Both Main Protagonists Are Named After Seasons
- If You Read The Manga (Especially The Latest Chapters) You'll Find Haru And Natsu Looking Very Similar, This Goes The Same For Lucy And Elie Except For The Hairstyle.
I Hope You Enjoy My Recommendation!
