This week for Manga Monday I’m covering a series I can’t believe I haven’t covered yet. It’s Rave, or as it was known in the States Rave Master, by Mashima Hiro.

Plot Synopsis: The series follows Haru Glory, a teenager in a quest to find the five pieces of the sacred stone Rave in order to bring peace to the world by defeating the criminal group Demon Card.

Plot: The plot is pretty good for a Shonen series, and I have to say it’s probably my favorite Shonen series after One Piece. It’s intense and full of action, romance and plenty of adventure.

Characters: The entire cast is great, although Ellie is my personal favorite. Haru is a great lead, but Ellie’s just awesome.

Art: Classic Shonen, although not a Shonen Jump title it was quite excellent.

Overall: A must read, this is a true classic series and one everyone should read. It has something for everyone.

For those who like: Action, Adventure, Romance, Shonen Series, Amazing Plot, Fantastic Cast of Characters, Excellent Artwork.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
