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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...
