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?!

For one thing, they are by the same mangaka, obvious. and Fairy Tail is just awesome, you will also recognize a lot of the characters from Rave Master in Fairy Tail. and guess what? Plue is back! unfortunately you rarely see him and he doesn't really have a big role, but still, Plue is Plue.      Fairy Tail is also in a similar kind of world, with a lot of magic, awesome magic. If you take a look, you will understand why Fairy Tail is awesome!

Big fan of Hiro Mashima's work, the creator of Rave Master, Fairy Tail, Monster Soul, and Monster Hunter Orage. The story are excellent, well enough to make you hooked or become a fan of Hiro. I admits that I am big fan of him, hard to not be a fan of him. Since his work are popular for reason. May not be the best, but still mighty interesting story. The art is another reason why I am a fan. All of his works has comdey, romances, drama, fantasy and most of all plenty of actions that most of people craves. So stop wasting your time on reading this, and start reading his work if you havn't done so.

These are pretty much identical. They were both made by Hiro Mashima, so it isn't surprising. The characters are so similar that I feel like I'm reading a continuation of either story. Plue even makes an appearance in Fairy Tail. Both are filled with action, so if you like one, you will like the other.

Zarkstar Zarkstar says...

One of the most epic manga, ever. It's incredible how Hiro Mashima could create a so exciting characters that made the history of mangas. In fact, there are a lot of links of Rave also in Fairy Tail (like Plue).

Both mangas come from the same artist and have in many ways a very similar feeling when you read them not to mention that the main character and story develops in an interesting way.

One Piece

One Piece

Long ago the infamous Gol D. Roger was the strongest and most powerful pirate on the seas. As he was about to be executed he revealed that he hid all of his wealth, including the legendary treasure known as One Piece, on an island at the end of the Grand Line - a treacherous and truly unpredictable sea. Monkey D. Luffy is a spirited, energetic and somewhat dim-witted young man with a very big dream: to find One Piece and become the Pirate King! However Luffy is no ordinary boy, as when he was younger he ate one of the Devil's Fruits and gained its power to become a Rubber Man. Now in this grand age of pirates Luffy sets out to gather a crew and sail to the most dangerous sea in the world so that he can fulfill his dream... and maybe even his appetite!

Both these are comedy action series about a group of strong fighters who traveling together. Their comedy and art syles are also very similar. Fans of one would enjoy the other.

Maetessa Maetessa says...

One Piece and Rave Master are quite similar in that they have a protaganist going out into the world on a crazy adventure with all kinds of crazy and weird characters and accumulating unique party members.  I started reading them both at about the same time and found them to be quite similar.

Kevakmt Kevakmt says...

Both Haru and Luffy, insanely strong and equally stupid, make many important comrades as they go on an adventure to reach their goals. Though they can be sometimes chessy, both are incredibly funny. With just the right amount of tear-jerking moments, they are entertaining and incredible manga! I'd highly recomend both of them!

miko miko says...

it's odd how similar these are, trust me, there are serious moments, comedy moments and the lead role is made up of a male who makes some weird friends and go on magical adventures with said friends.

O-Parts Hunter

O-Parts Hunter

In the ancient past, a highly-intelligent and technologically-advanced civilization was pushed to extinction, leaving behind relics known as O-Parts. These mysterious items are only usable by a select type of beings known as O-Parts Tacticians, and give their users powerful abilities. Jio is a boy who, as a child, was driven out of his village after being accused of killing his best friend Jin's parents. Since then, he underwent training with a lone wolf named Zero and now is on a quest to conquer the world! One day, Jin runs across a girl and saves her from a monster. Her name is Ruby Crescent, and she's a treasure hunter in search of O-Parts. Together, the two travel the land, encountering fierce organizations, old enemies and new friends. But more importantly, they slowly learn more about their pasts, including the discovery that Jin harbors a dark secret: he holds within him the power of Satan, the ultimate evil!

Both of them were probably the best manga I have ever read. Yeah, so there was the stereotypical strong, determined protagonist who gets by on courage and determination to protect his friends. Then the attractive female character who has a secret power, and we all know they'll get together eventually. But, the plots were both unique and slightly different from your average manga. The fighting is intense. The deaths make you bawl. And the love is just so beautiful. Ah, they both just tweak your heartstrings. 

lordjoppiesaus lordjoppiesaus says...

I'm not sure why but it does seem kind of similar, there are the Dark Bring and the Rave in Rave Master and the O-Parts in 666 Satan. It's just an awesome manga and so is Rave Master.

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yu Yu Hakusho

Yuusuke is a street-fighting, class-skipping juvenile delinquent. Killed in an unexpected act of kindness, he thwarts the spirit-world bureaucracy and ends up with a second chance at life... as infant prince of death Koenma's Spirit Detective! Simultaneously cheered on and kept in line by Keiko Yukimura, his childhood friend, he is joined by a spiritually aware human, two demons on parole, and guided by a much too lively ferry girl of the dead. Together they plow through demons, tournaments, hijinks, intense "martial arts" training, cross-dressers, dungeons, conspiracies and bad puns alike. At the end of the day, what's it all for? Kicking butt and saving the world, of course!

If you liked Rave than I have a gut feeling that you would like Yu Yu Hakusho just as much. In Rave Master you get action, adventure, and a bit of romance but you can’t get the feeling of being sad when it is over, right? Well you’re in luck Yu Yu Hakusho just happens to have a lot of adventure and action for everyone and will make you wanting to keep reading it and find out what happens next. Anyone also up for some twists and turns? Both of the main characters are always up for a challenge but when it comes to those girls they like they’ll get into more trouble than you would believe and they don’t or maybe they can’t, take a stand when the girls get mad. These two mangas have a lot of things in common but at the same time they are totally different than each other. So if you can’t find any other manga that has these top three genres and you’re in the mood for something that’s sorta out of this world then try this manga and see if you like it.

Leaving the home they have always known and going on a wild adventure seems easy for both Usagi and Haru, but is it really as easy as they think?
