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.

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 one was just about perfect...Rosette wasn't sappy or wishy washy, a very strong lead....and 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 was believable! and in the end everything came together beautifully... smile

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.

the art = good!
the story = good
the characters = good

i personally like the setting. well,i like something classic especially the environment design in this manga. something that can leave a deep impression.

really when the 1st time i read this manga,
i thought it would end just like another fantasy shounen manga.
but when i reached the ending, i realized it's much more deeper than i thought!
i thought since it's a fantasy manga, something magical would prevent "it" to happen. but my prediction was wrong.
the ending really made me feel hurt and happy at the same time. sad yet beautiful. it left a very deep impression inside my heart. i wanted to cry but i couldn't.

Overall is a good (meaning above the average) manga. The artowrk is nice and well done. Since this is a shounen series, expecting a masterpiece of plot or supra original characters is unreasonable... and so the plot is just fine, becoming more interesting when knowing about the past of the characters; and overall the pace of the story is good enough to keep you interested. The characters are well depicted but beside Chrno and Rossette there is basically no other character well developed.

Finally what made me give this manga an 8 and not 7 is the ending. Simply it was touching (in a bittersweet way) and it is of the very few manga/anime where all this love-wise scenes between the (main) characters are well justified to give a very satifastory ending.

This was a fantastic manga. Although the ending was quite depressing, the story was good and the art was very pretty. One of the best mangas I've read in my opinion.

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).

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.
