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.

This is one of my favourite manga of all time. The plot is awesome. The only major difference between the anime & the manga is how different the endings are. They're only slightly different though, so that's not a thing to worry about. I loved both the anime & the manga though. ^^ This manga is definitely worth the read. ^^

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).

Deja vu?

While reading this, you may get a sense that you've read something like this before. The ideas are not the most original and, while it is a pleasant read for the first few volumes, there's nothing here to make you think "This is one of the best mangas I've ever read".

The reason I put my rating higher than average is purely because of the development of the relationship between the characters. I wanted to cry at the end but sadly my tear ducts have dried up after having watched too many Korean dramas. The good stuff only happens very late in the series, which is why I decided to sell my Chrono Crusade collection on as it's probably not one I'd read again, as much as I found the ending satisfying. This is one I would say to read if you have time.

For some reason, whenever I see nuns and guns (or catgirls with guns, or bunnygirls, maids, ect.) I'm expecting a semi-good plot with lots of pantyshots to have to skip over. But this manga was actually really good. The plot was interesting, it was funny, and the art was pretty.
The ending being so overbearingly depressing contradicted with the humor, and left me in tears. I would've liked a happier ending, but not being able to have everything you want is an important idea in the story, so maybe better left like that. I really enjoyed it.
It also left a really deep impression on me, even now, more than a month after completing it (and watching the anime afterwards), I still think about it. This is one of my favorites.

This was my first manga and it is still my favourite. What's not to love?. Cool villains, good plot and artwork, a nice amount to angst/love (not too overbearing or cheesy), maturity, a demon with control issues and (as was said already) a gun-toting nun. A half mark off because I am still a wee bit annoyed at the ending... I am sooo spoilt for other manga, but Trinity Blood is helping a whole lot, lol...

This is a manga to read to any adventure/fantasy fan, the plot line is simply amazing, the art is above average, in any case this manga is a must read!

it's ok i guess....the art isn't really unique or beautiful, and if you've watched the anime like i did, you'll probably be pretty disappointed at the art, but i think that the plot would be a refreshing change from the anime and all the fanfic i've read about this wonderful story ^^
