Fifty years ago, malevolent stones known as Dark Brings brought about the "Overdrive," a calamitous event that destroyed one-tenth of the world. In the present day, the nefarious organization Demon Card seeks the Dark Brings' power for their all but innocent intentions.

Haru Glory, a sword-wielding silver-haired teenager, inherits the title of Rave Master: the person who wields the power of the legendary Rave Stones, artifacts capable of destroying the Dark Brings. However, the many Rave Stones were scattered across the globe as a result of the Overdrive, allowing Demon Card to continue their malpractices.

Groove Adventure Rave follows Haru, his strange dog Plue, the fiery blonde Ellie, and the infamous thief Musica, as they embark on a great journey that will take them around the vast world, searching for the Rave Stones that will finally end Demon Card's injustice.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
Truthfully this could of been a much better anime. If it had focused more on the villains and had less filers I feel it would be much better. The beginning was good and I started to really like it but it got boring (I also feel like it should of focused more on the magic and not on tools for special powers but this anime isn't really about magic that's just a personal opinion). The 5 ending episodes or so were amazing but left the story hanging. I think it's such a shame they didn't continue this anime I think it would of gotten much ...

Rave master

The work of Hiro Mashima before taking on Fairy Tail as a new project. I don't know the manga by Rave Master, so I just have to focus on the anime.

Rave Master has a subtle approach to plot and background. And here I am already at the end of my positive ...
