With that said; Chrono Crusade is probably one of the rare attempts from Japan's anime industry at telling a story that's based on America and its culture.
It's a good story overall: Mostly hardboiled and "cop-buddy-themed," sometimes whimsical, a third of the time LOUDLY YELLING (Thank you, HillHaag and Greg.), doing its best "for the otaku" but realizing that it's a "serious, edge-of-ya-seat anime based in AMERICA." It didn't spawn as much fan-based h-doujin material like Saki did, but it counter-programmed like a Belmont slewing 100 demons. So yeah. read more

The story initially seems serious, but it's so much more. It's a perfect mix of comedy/shounen/drama. You'll smile in its lighthearted moments, sit on the edge of your seat during battle, and tear up (if you're emotional) in the more dramatic moments.
Overall, it's fast paced but captivating. Definitely worth watching. read more

I normally don't really like or dislike demons, but in this anime I really liked Chrno. It was kind of interesting to watch how other people would react to him, because he was a demon between humans.
At first the story was very normal for me, like every other anime, but it was still enjoyable to watch. But even though I already enjoyed it quite a bit, it became just more and more interesting as I watched the episodes. I didn't think that there would be a story like that behind it, and I really liked the story they came up with.
The art was kind of good, I really liked how the characters looked and I liked their personalities. I actually almost liked everyone, and that doesn't happen that often. Well, I admit that I once again didn't like everyone, but I liked the most of them. Their voices were good and they didn't annoy me. I actually really liked it when Azmaria screamed, because she has a scream that you actually wouldn't really expect. I don't hear screams like that quite often, most of the time they annoy me in animes, but this time it didn't.
In the end I was a little disappointed though, because it didn't really turn out the way I wanted it to. And there were a few things that I wanted to see happening, but they didn't happen, so that was a little bit a let down. The story wasn't totally unique too, so I couldn't give it a 10, but I gave it a 9 because I enjoyed it a lot. It made me happy at some times, but I've cried a few times too. There were a few sad parts in it, but it was kind of beautiful too. Personally I enjoyed watching this anime. read more
