Groove Adventure Rave レイヴ (Rave)


In 0015, the world is corrupted by Dark Bring, dark stones that bestowed powerful magic to their owners. The Dark Bring are used by the Raregroove Kingdom, and the Symphonia Kingdom fight against them with their Rave Stones. Shiba Roses, the first Rave Master, attempts to destroy Sinclaire, the "mother" of the Dark Bring, with the Ten Commandments Sword. However, the aftermath causes a massive explosion known as "Overdrive", destroying one-tenth of the known world. Shiba was protected from the disaster by Plue, a special guardian "dog" who shielded him from the blast, holds onto the RAVE which are required to power his sword. Plue and the five remaining fragments of RAVE, however, get scattered around the world.

Fifty years later, a 16 year old Haru Glory lives on the peaceful Garage Island with his sister Cattleya. Haru accidentally fishes Plue up. Shiba arrives and his desire to re-claim Plue. However, a group of terrorists from the Demon Card organization appear and destroy Haru's house. Shiba tells Haru that he is the second Rave Master, entrusting the Ten Commandments sword, Plue and his Rave to him. Seeking revenge on Demon Card, Haru and Plue set off on a journey to find the missing Rave stones. Upon arriving at Hip Hop Island, Haru befriends a girl named Elie, who has no recollections of her past. During their journey, Haru encounter enemies from Demon Card who eventually becomes his allies, including Shuda and Sieg Hart. Haru later meets a diverse group of allies, including Hamrio Musica, grandson of a local blacksmith; Let Dahaka and Julia, two humans who can transform into dragons and use fire; Griffon Kato, a strange blue creature and Plue's friend; Ruby, a penguin and a casino owner; Belnika, a mage who can control the substance Etherion; and Niebel, Sieg's close friend. He also encounters Gale "King" Raregroove, the king of the Raregroove Kingdom. After a battle on the Tower of Din, Haru's father Gale Glory sacrifices himself to save his son by defeating King.

Some time later, King's son Lucia Raregroove appears and captures Elie, but Haru saves her. To surpass Shiba as the next Rave Master, Haru is forced to kill him in battle. After being sent back in time to 0016, Haru and the others learn of Elie's past: originally named Resha Valentine, she creates the Rave Stones from Etherion to help end the war. She fakes her death by cutting her hair and gaining a new identity as Elie. After she offers Haru to return to Garage Island with her, Haru accepts. Haru kills Lucia and confronts Endless, a magical form of the Dark Brings. Haru and Elie eventually destroy Endless. However, Haru ends up getting sucked into Overdrive and disappears, and Elie's memories are erased once again. One year later, Elie and the others visit Haru's grave, where she regains her memories. Haru returns and reunites with the Rave Warriors. The warriors go their separate ways, and Haru and Elie return to Garage Island to live together.

Here is the Additional Info regarding the Ten Commandments Sword:

The sword was made with a special slot to hold the Rave Stones namely, Rave of Combat, Rave of Knowledge, Rave of Truth and Rave of Destiny. It is also known as Holy Bring. This sword is said to have ten forms including its original state when attached with the Rave, hence its name. Different forms can be combined simultaneously to create powerful combination attacks.

Each sword is individually forged and bound together by using the power of the Rave Stones. Each forms of the Ten Commandments Sword are stored inside of the Rave Stone and being called by the wielder by his memory. After obtaining the Rave of Knowledge, Haru gained the memory of all the ten forms of Ten Commandments Sword.

·        Shiba, the first Rave Master who held wield the Ten Commandments Sword for 50 years.
·        Haru, the second and current Rave Master who held wield the Ten Commandments Sword couldn’t unlock the 10th forms of Shiba’s Ten Commandments Sword and replace with his own version.

Form 1 – Eisenmeteor “The Metal Sword”

·        Ten Commandments Sword’s default form.
·        Large iron sword which cannot block any magics as it is a non-magic sword and it’s useful in fights due to its weight and size.
·        Proved instrumental during battling Sieg Hart.
·        Shiba’s version was destroyed by Galein after HAmrio Musica created Ravelt, which mean replacing Shiba’s version, by using his Silver Claimer ability, which nearly killing himself for Haru. Despite that Haru is wielding Ravelt as his default sword near the end of the serious, Eisenmeteor is still usable.    

Form 2 – Explosion “The Explosive Sword”

·        A sword with no proper cutting edge but creates a powerful explosion on contact with the enemy.
·        After gaining the Rave of Combat.
·        Most commonly used by Haru.
·        The shock of the impact is powerful to the extent that if HAru uses it in succession too much, it could possibly hurt or kill him.
·        Able to launch explosive burst of fire from long range which Haru uses this against Let Dahaka by calling the attack “Explosive Dance”.

Form 3 – Silfarion “The Sonic Sword”

·        Allows Haru to become extremely light, granting great speed for fast consecutive attacks as well as the ability to create blades of air for long ranged attacks.
·        Combine with Explosion to create a special attack called “Twelve Wings of Fire” where Haru speeds past the enemies while hitting them with multiple explosive blasts.
·        Relatively weak as melee weapon and is no more than a normal sword for attacking.
·        Allows Haru to catch his opponents unaware, through in Chapter 61 which had beaten by Racas (one of the Palace Guards) and later by Doryu, meaning foes who can predict it can block it with ease.
·        After gaining Rave of Knowledge.

Form 4 – Runesave “The Sealing Sword”

·        Unique jagged sword which cannot cut anything physical but and cut things without a tangible form like lightning, fire, water or smoke.
·        Used to seal magic and it is used by Haru to seal Elie’s Etherion.
·        During the battle with the last palace guard, Haru used Runesave to seal his own mind so it could not be read.
·        During battle between Haru and Lucia, Lucia used the Decalogue Runesave to seal Haru’s Runesave by making Haru unable to block Lucia’s magic attacks, although it unseals when not used against Decalogue.
·        Was obtained when Haru wanted to defend Elie against Sieg Hart.

Form 5 – Blue Crimson “The Twin Dragon Sword”

·        Ten Commandments Sword splits into 2 blades with one having the properties of fire and the other having the properties of ice.
·        Used as ranged attacks.
·        To use the sword to its full potential, the wielder needs to be ambidextrous, making this sword hard to use for Haru since he is right-handed.
·        Useful in fending off attacks from 2 opponents simultaneously.
·        During his duel with the various members of Oracion Six, Haru used Blue Crimson to fend off Berial and Reina’s combined attacks.
·        Haru first uses the Blue Crimson against Let, who belongs to the dragon race.

Form 6 – Mel Force “The Vacuum Sword”

·        The Sword of air, allows the wielder to fire powerful burst of air at the enemy to blow them away and paralyze them, or, blow him to higher places.
·        Achieved during his fight with King.

Form 7 – Gravity Core “The Gravity Blade”

·        An incredibly destructive sword that is able to cut through very hard things.
·        The trade off is its extremely heavy weight and thus requires great strength to use.
·        Although more powerful than Explosion, it’s very difficult blade to utilize.
·        Usually Haru jumps or swings up before switching to Gravity Core for maximum damage.

Form 8 – Million Sun “The Solar Sword”

·        Meaning “the force of a million suns.”
·        A sword whose blade is composed purely of Light, the holy light generally blinds Haru’s opponents and dispels darkness.
·        Used by Haru to defeat Pumpkin Doryu and disabled the power of his Dark Bring.

Form 9 – Sacrifar “The Bloodlust Sword”

·        The most destructive of all the Ten Commandments Sword.
·        A frightening blade of bloodlust that seals the wielder’s emotion except for anger and aggression for immense power.
·        As the sword was made for Shiba instead Haru, the sword will take over the wielder after sometime (growing along the wielder’s body until it is completely covered).
·        Even Lucia was only able to remain in control for a short period while using the decalogus version of Sacrifar.
·        After Musica formed Haru’s tenth sword, it has yet been made clear as to whether Haru is still affected by Sacrifar in the same way.

Current Default/Form 10 – Ravely “The Holy (World) Sword”

·        Most powerful form of the Ten Commandments Sword
·        When Musica discovers that a tenth form of the Ten Commandments Sword was never made for Haru, he takes it on himself to create one, using a drop of his Silver, the left over metal from the first Ten Commandments Sword and a mixture of blacksmith and silver manipulation skills (he almost died from exhaustion in the process).
·        Has the power to dispel evil and becomes the default sword, (Eisenmeteor was still usable, just became a form that had to be called upon) while still being able to transform and used the powers of the other swords using Rave.
·        Name comes from Rave and Welt, the German word for “World”.

Form 10 – Star-Raver “The Holy (Star) Sword”

·        The original tenth form of the Ten Commandments Sword used by Shiba.
·        Used to defeat the final Dark Bring or “Shadow Stone”, Sinclaire, in the previous war. This act resulted in the Overdrive, a huge explosion which supposedly destroyed one-tenth of the world.
·        Is specially made for Shiba.
·        Never appear in the manga but is revealed in the author’s note.
·        Star-Raver and Ravelt look surprisingly similar.

Here is the Fused Moves made by Haru:

Haru able to combine his sword abilities to create a variety of effects

·        Explosion + Silfarion = “Silver Drive” or “Twelve Wing of the Exploding Dragon”
-         Commonly used combination technique.
-         It creates 12 swift explosions that Haru normally uses to quickly take out a large number of enemies.

·        Runesave + Mel Force = Runeforce
-         Creates a tunnel through fluids.
-         For the duration of the ability, the fluid will not flow into the tunnel allowing Haru passage.
-         Haru has used it twice
(a)   To avoid falling into acid before Musica could save him.
(b)  To strand the Oni in mid air by pushing away the sea before he unleashed Explosive Wings/Silver Drive.

·        Explosion + Blue Crimson = Dual Explosion
-         Basically double Explosion.
-         More focused and more powerful attack than Silver Drive.
