Fairy Tail

Fairy Tail

Lucy is a seventeen-year-old mage with the power to summon stellar spirits, but what she really wants to do is join a guild - and not just any guild. She has her eyes set on Fairy Tail, a notoriously reckless and outrageous group of magic users who are likely to be drunk or destroying buildings and towns in the process of completing a job! While in town one day Lucy meets a perpetually-seasick boy named Natsu who, through a series of events, reveals to her that he's none other than the fire-eating mage Salamander of Fairy Tail! Lucy is finally able to join Fairy Tail and quickly begins to take on odd jobs with Natsu and his gang for fame and profit. Along with her fiery friend, Happy the flying cat, Natsu's archrival Gray and their overseer the invincible and beautiful Erza, Lucy sets forth for epic adventures that leave an epic amount of destruction in their wake. After all, destroying a city or five doesn't matter as long as they get the job done... right?!

Wright Wright says...

Made by the same creator, and a lot carries over, such as the humor, character design, and the colorful world.

magicseaker magicseaker says...

The characters seem pretty close to each other, and there is an actual creature in Fairy Tail that was in Rave Master.

LightYagami94 LightYagami94 says...

They were both originally written and drawn by the same author, Hiro Mashima, and so they both have similar types of humor, plot and art styles. Both focus around a likable group of friends in a mystical world.

Darky94 Darky94 says...

These series were made by same author and they many things in similar: They have Plue (that white creature...), Etherion, same looking characters and a woman AND man lead at the same time. The atmosphere in both animes is pretty similar.

KittyEmperor KittyEmperor says...

If you like one of these then you would probably like the other.  Both series have fairly similar animation styles and you can even notice similarities between the cast of the characters with even one of the characters making an appearance in both series.  There is also similar plot concepts in both series with the main cast having to deal with several different types of bad guys but ulimately they begin moving towards an ulimate showdown with the biggest baddie sometime in the future.  There are also similar genres in both animes with fantasy, magic, adventure, comdey, and some romance playing major roles in both series.  In conculsion if you liked one of these series then you are bound to end up liking the other.

Korwin Korwin says...

One should watch Rave Master to see where the idea of Fairy Tail came from. Many common things, terminology and even some characters are shared between the two already cult status shounen titles. If you watched Rave Master see what became of it's legacy.

tevinskii tevinskii says...

The similarities in characters and humour are a great combination which makes the fact that if you enjoy one of them then you will definitly like the other. Even with the odd similar characters and humour the story line along with everything else that makes these anime unique are great reasons to ensure that you DEFO watch both animes. You'll never regret it.

Ashlex Ashlex says...

Its made by the same creator of fairy tail and Rave master was actually made before fairy tail. They have common elements and even help explain some things in fairy tail like Plue, the jigle but gang and more that i dont want to give away. YOU MUST WATCH OR READ BOTH trust me you won't regret it!

Essenceesse Essenceesse says...

Both are so similar in the characters and personalities of the characters. It is very evident they were made by the same creator, however Rave Master is slightly less involved with romance between characters and also much shorter.

When I first started watching Rave, it reminded me of Jing. Both have wacky, random monsters/critters that appear out of nowhere... a delightful mix of comedy and action, and colorfully drawn characters. Jing is 100% episodic, however.. which might turn some people off, but it still is incredibly entertaining.

TheBurningCrow TheBurningCrow says...

The random characters and strange creatures all over the place are quite similar. Jing however doesn't have an epic story like Rave does. But the fight scenes in both are clever and exciting.

sublime sublime says...

Big, bold and fun are three words I'd use to describe both Rave and King of Bandit Jing. Extremely memorable characters in both series. And although there is no similarity in plot (Rave having an ongoing story and Jing being short story episodes in nature), I think it's hard to find something that's going to match Jing plot wise, purely because of the fantasy of it all. But Rave comes very close.

These are about a young man that has no family who travels the world with his animal sidekick. They are in serch of magical items which will help them to acheive their goals. Along the way both incounter people which they must help/fight.

AnimeUnrivaled AnimeUnrivaled says...

Groove Adventure Rave and Shaman King both center around characters with powers peculiar to themselves. While the underlying basis for the powers in each of the shows is entirely unique, both shows seem to share the same spirit. Yoh and Haru are entirely different characters, but both provide moments of intense laughter as well as moments of complete sincerity. Both characters attempt to keep living a light-hearted lifestyle while taking upon intense responsibilities only they can face. The trials in both shows are entirely serious while the friendships made along the way in the two are hillariously entertaining. The balance between good humor, intense action, and intriguing plotline is mirrored between the shows. That's definitely a good thing.

Fuu Fuu says...

If you like Rave you'll love Shaman King. It's funny and very humorous with the right touch of love. ^.-  Well, there crazy animals like the ones in Rave, but the ghosts in Shaman King help balance that out.

freakzilla freakzilla says...

Rave and Shaman King are both lighthearted series. With a laid back atmosphere, some fun fights and eventually a decent story, I'd say these anime have quite a few things in common.

charliechan charliechan says...

If you like the idea about people fighting with magical swords then theses are for you. Both have great action fights and good plots to follow.

Rave and Inuyasha have very similar themes: in each, broken pieces of an artifact from the past have been scattered and the protagonists are on a seemingly neverending quest to find them all. It's interesting to see how the very different characters cope with a similar situation. While Inuyasha has more action, Rave has less episodes.

charliechan charliechan says...

If you like stories about people serching for maicl thing then you will these two. Both have their own style of action while at the same time showing a reationship between the main people.

Emily99073 Emily99073 says...

Both involves a stone which was broken and scattered all around the world. The main characters in both animes searches for the pieces before they are found by demons. But also meet new characters through out the story.

kaz kaz says...

Action, action, action -- Naruto's got ninjas, and Groove Adventure RAVE has a guy with a huge sword...and a little creature with a horn. Both series achieve a good mix of comedy and action with an overarching plot, but Groove Adventure RAVE delves deeper with its characters and goes farther in terms of storytelling.

Eleventh Eleventh says...

Rave and Naruto are feel-good anime series with some depth! They are suitable for all ages with strong (if overly simplified) didactic themes. They are perfect for the young anime beginner, and have enough episode longevity to keep you occupied for a while.
