Yeah I hate the fact that it’s over lmao
No but in all seriousness I did have a few problems with it. IM ADDING A BIG FAT SPOILER WARNING TO THIS FOR ONCE so here we go!
For one, in volume 13, Haru and Lucia both have a dream about Resha and her “crime.” It’s never revealed what that crime was (I’ll assume it was Resha faking her own death though) and it was never revealed why they both had that dream. The only thing from that part that appeared again in the series was “the Endless.” I wish it had been made more clear what Resha’s crime was!
Also, the whole third Rave Master thing going into the final battle with Doryu. Idk it was just really weird that it was brought up and then dropped so suddenly. And we never learned who it was. That would have been cool to know. Even if Mashima only offered a name in an afterword or something.
Also, more on the King of Symphonia and the rest of the Glory bloodline. HARU IS ROYALTY? The hell?! …On the flip side to that, I love how Elie was destined to meet either Gale or Haru. ESPECIALLY SINCE SHE MET HARU.
And last, I was very disappointed to learn that Mashima had to cut a lot of stuff out of Haru and Lucia’s final battle due to time and space constraints of the magazine Rave was published in. He was originally going to draw the battle out even more, and have the two characters get to understand each other better, AND GO MORE IN DEPTH OF LUCIA’S CHARACTER and the reasons why he did what he did. The one reason we got was about his ancestor (who looked a lot like Julia tbh) going to star memory and creating a duplicate world and it was the only reason we got. It really didn’t make sense. I feel Lucia as a villain character really fell flat because Mashima couldn’t add more detail to the final arc.
Sorry for the text wall. But you DID say the magic words, “Rave Master.”

This. All of this. Especially the last one.
