Since I really thought that Rave reminded me of Final Fantasy I just gotta recommend Final Fantasy Unlimited. Though FF Unlimited is abit more childish than Rave in my opinion. I guess it's because of the a bit smaller chars. But it still got the nice fighting scenes and all what Final Fantasy is so you better check it out if you enjoyed watching Rave.

Similar humor in both, though besides that hardly any similarities. Rave actually has a plot, where shinobuden has none. The frequenty of the jokes is therefor alot lower in Rave than in Shinobuden. Rave also takes place in a fantasy world, while Shinobuden could be confused with a RL series.
Ginta would much rather dream of fantasy worlds than do his homework; but when he dreams of the same place 102 times, he knows something is amiss. The 103rd time, his dream becomes a reality when he is whisked away to the enchanted lands of MAR Heaven, a place where magic and monsters really do exist, and the world is being torn apart by an evil queen. Now, before he can find his way home, Ginta must take on the queen with the help of newfound friends Babbo, Jack, Alan and Snow. Together, they could be MAR’s best chance of liberation from the hands of evil!
Both these series have the adventure theme with the protagonist traveling to find the enemy and train through the process of fighting weaker people. The protagonist both have weapons that can change forms, a sidekick, a support weapon character, etc. If you like the feel of the adventure, then you should watch both of these series.
In the present, mankind lives in an era named the Dark Century, a time filled with fear due to the actions of the Vandels. These domineering tormentors rule with an iron fist, bringing death and despair to mankind. But in the midst of the terror, there is one thing the Vandels fear: the Vandel Busters. Enter Beet, a young boy whose only dream is to grow up to be the greatest Buster of them all. Join our hero as he journeys to join the Zenon Warriors and destroy the Vandels. With the help of friends and a little luck, Beet might be able to put a stop to the Dark Century, once and for all!
Even though neither Rave nor Beet floats my boat, I feel it's safe to recommend these two anime for each other. In an adventurous world, one is seeking out power to destroy \ evil-doers. Adding a bit and humor with the fights, the atmosphere is very alike. I guess what differentiates them from the typical adventure anime is that they don't develop a deep story and are aimed more towards younger teens.
