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'.

This is a nice manga, though it's not my style It was a good read.
But the end... it just crushed me... even though I like a little sadness in the endings, this was just to much, like not justifed.

well i've read a lot of mangas so i find this a bit cliche..the love story too is a bit uncomfortable coz chrono is almost in a kid form in the whole story, although in reality he's decades/century older?artwork though is quite good and the plot is enteresting and fast paced..and the characterization is quite nice..

but what really blew me away is the way it was concluded. it was a bit sad and nostalgic and a lot more..i just love epilogues!

although i also find it confusing..can someone clear this up for me?well there was this 1931 year where someone supposedly died without even seeing whom she/he was waiting for and then on the last pages there was the 1932 year where he/she almost died but the long awaited someone arrives..please excuse the he/she reference, just to avoid spoiling the story further.. so which is which? is it an alternate ending? or did i just misunderstood?

anyways this is definitely recommendable. and the fact that it is a bit short and already completed are plus factors...

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 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

The start was a little slow. It's the character's back story and the conclusion that are the interesting arcs. Get past the first couple of chapters and it's great. The Opening is a little cliche. Still a very good series.

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!
