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.

While I have been waiting for this show for quite some time, it was a nice surprise to watch engaging and proficient characters despite stereotypes.

The characters shown in the show were appealing, including Haru Glory and Elle. Though their design neither was revolutionary nor noteworthy, it had a charm in its simplicity and cuteness. With the mascots even, Plue and Griff added something special to the series, which offered character design creativity.

The show was pretty well animated with nice characters and wonderful surroundings rendering it a treat to watch. The action scenes brought out the spirit of the story despite some shortcomings. The plot itself ...

Mixed Feelings
Groover Adventure Rave, aka Rave Master is a hard one for me.
I have most of the Rave manga and have read it all, and it is one of the best mangas I've read. It's fun, action packed, nice depth to the story, a great variety of cool characters,, powers and backstories, and much more. It kept me entertained over and over, and I loved it.
The anime adaption has very little of this.
First off. They start the anime in the middle of book 3 of the mange (no explenantion other than the anime intro) and the pacing of the show varies wildly.
Second. The animation is ...

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.

With the third work by Hiro Mashima, I'm already used to the fact that he not only takes over the design of many characters 1: 1, but also their personalities and all the mistakes. Rave Master was, as far as I understood, his first work and with it, his questionable story took its course.

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