Description
From ADV:

America in the Roaring 20s. On the surface, it's a positive, peaceful time after the violence of the Great War. But lurking in the shadows is a dark element ready to snatch that peace away. Sister Rosette Christopher, an exorcist working as a part of the Magdala Order, has a duty to fight the demons which appear and cause destruction.

But along with her companion Chrno, she usually ends up causing more destruction than the demons themselves! On one particular mission, they meet a young girl with a beautiful voice named Azmaria, who is being targeted by her own stepfather. As Rosette and Chrno work to save her, more is revealed about the relationship between them. There is more to these two than meets the eye.

Note: Old cover is spelled Chrno Crusade whereas the new cover is Chrono Crusade with an 'o'.

The plotline isn't amazing (overdramatic apocalypse ... pretty overdone), but the characters make this series worth it. The best part is that this manga has a wholesome ending fit for the well-developed characters (unlike many others that end up dragging on and on).

I guess I had greater expectations for this manga but sadly it did not live up to them, and I found myself just wanting to finish the manga just to get it over with. The story was bland and so was the mood but the redeeming factor I guess was the characters, they grow on you. In any case, not a bad manga but not great either.

great read.

they died happily. The saddest part for me was when chrno froze rosette, but too bad it didn't end shortly after that.


the anime sucks, do not watch!

I almost didn't read this story. The preview and cover art didn't appeal to me...

...but I'm so glad I did! It was so touching and heart-wrenching at times. I loved it.

This is the kind of manga that lingers for days after you read it. In my case, there was a good amount of tears involved.

It's the romance that killed me. It's subtle throughout the series and the end was heartbreaking. I could not stop crying at all. The best thing about the manga is the relationship between the two main characters. It is simply beautiful. It's the personification of love unsaid but understood I'd say.

This is one of my favorite manga and anime! The art isn't overdone. The story never feels like they're trying to drag it out, so its never boring. The relationship between Chrno and Rosette seems a lot more believable than most manga. I like Rosette's strong personality. She feels more like a real person than most heroins, and Chrno is very well developed as well! I really can't think of much that I could possibly say as a con for Chrno Crusade... The ending works well with the manga in both the anime and manga.

This manga brought tears to my eyes more than once. It was very deep, complex, and just plain un-simple. The emotions felt very real to me, real enough that I'd cry tears of sadness at the happy parts and tears of joy at the sad parts. And I don't cry unless something really gets to me.

I'm not gonna say the basic plot idea is ingenious or anything. I mean, a demon who's in love with a nun. A chick who's life is slowly being sucked away. Yeah, sure, heard it all before. But it's presented in a very amazing manner. Thinking about it, there's enough drama and angst to make it seem like a rather dark story, but it still seems to me light-hearted. I think it's the lovely blend of the two that give this manga it's charm. Not to mention, I don't think any of the characters were two dimensional! Yay! Heehee, but yes, I definitely recommend this read. But not if you can't stand sad things. But I do promise, it's worth it all the same.

this one was just about perfect...Rosette wasn't sappy or wishy washy, a very strong lead....and Chrono...wow...big or small he managed to convey that "tormented soul" feel...the end was bittersweet....but it fit so well i couldn't be mad at it it was just so right...i really want to know a bit more about Chrono's past, too. also the romance wasn't too heavy but not to light either...it was believable! and in the end everything came together beautifully... smile

I just read this manga out of curiosity because lot of people said this manga is "must read" so, I'll give it a try. I read it randomly because I just want to see the romance between this two main character.

Starting from that, I try to reverse and start reading from the beginning. Quite nice. The character have unique identity.

The art nice - the way Shounen Genre should be of course smile

I love the romance. Love it. Not sappy and cheap kind of love. It's fragile and the way Rosette were going to death train breaking the heart actually. She seems devouring somebody - Chrno.

By the way, Chrno preety interesting character actually. Even though he looks all manly in his real form he looks childish and blushing all the times when Rosette tease him in chibi form. Aren't he cute?

The ending. Oh.. great. Have mercy on me please.

It sooo sad. But somehow, beautiful and very pure ending not something cliff hanger actually. Oh Rosette.. may you in peace.


Gonna watch the anime! How about hear their voice in anime? <33
