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.

Chrno x Rosette

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. ^^

Another manga that just keeps getting better and better as you read on.
Fantastic plot, great artwork, extremely lovable characters, this manga has got it all. The pacing is just fine, never rushing things but never dragging the plot either.
If I had to come up with one thing to gripe about this manga, that would be that I really want to see more of these characters. At only 8 volumes the story is rather short, and it left me wanting to hear more about Rosette and Chrno (who might just have the most inpronunceable name ever). The side characters are also rather nice, so I wouldn't have minded some of those chapters (so common in other mangas) that don't move the plot forwards, but just let you enjoy the characters. But this isn't really something to criticize, is it? That a story gets you to love its protagonists and makes you desire to see more of them is a very commendable thing.
In short, if you like action, fantasy, romance, and have a penchant for bitter-sweet tales, this manga is for you.

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 ^^
